Sizing up the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus to Android's greatest

Today we got our first real look at the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus and unsurprisingly they brought all of the specs to the game. But how do they stack up against the giants of Android, BlackBerry, and Windows Phone? Although now that Apple has a 5.5-inch iPhone, perhaps calling those other phones giants isn't entirely accurate. But still, how do they compare? That's what we're here to find out.

So we've taken the latest and greatest that Android, BlackBerry, and Windows Phone have to offer and stacked it up against Apple's newest. There are, admittedly, still a few things we don't yet know, but this gives a good idea of how it all plays out. Of course, these comparisons are all dependent on the software that's running on the device — some are better at managing processors and power consumption than others.

  • Thanks for the table, it would be easier to use if it were an image file...since scrolling in the browser without the ability to lock panes means its not as handy when comparing numbers.
  • This. I didn't even realize they were comparing it to more than the S5 until I got to the bottom.
  • this
  • I Just opened in browser. Posted via Android Central App
  • I am on a browser on my computer an this chart is pretty much useless unless you want to just keep scrolling up and down and back and forth
  • Thanks, didn't realize this until I read your comment.
  • This+1 Posted via Android Central App
  • For a website dedicated to talking about Mobile they do a pretty shoddy job of formatting for mobile.
  • Pretty much Posted via Android Central App
  • +1 Posted via Nexus 7 2013 or Galaxy S5
  • Actually reading it on MacOS is same story.
  • Yeah, scrolling sideways on the trackpad is also the gesture to go forward or back in the browser, making the graph pretty hard to read
  • +1. I tried panning the graph to the right with their own app and it kept trying to take me to the next article. :/ Posted via the Android Central App
  • Shoddy...very generous.
  • even on a chrome browser on my pc... still not usable.

    Not to mention how slow/laggy androidcentral loads on mobile!
    G3 only has a 5.3 screen???
  • Copy paste it on excel. Just like any analyst would.
  • Anyway to view on Google Docs spreadsheet? Scrolling back and forth horizontally to compare is painful.
  • Note 4 is a BEAST!!!
  • G3 is a beast too. So is the OPO for $349. Gimmicks aside, best phone for the money. Posted via the Android Central App
  • The OnePlus is a beast for the money. Hell, they did what I was hoping Google would do for the Nexus 5. 5.5 inch screen and 64GB of storage is a nice sweet spot.
  • I have to agree, both are nice phones. But since I owned them both and already sold them both I have to give my vote to the Oppo Find 7. It is flat out awesome. I am surprised this comparison left out both One Plus One and both Oppo Find 7s.
  • Finally, someone that realizes how great the Find 7 is, Too bad it won't work with my LTE band, and the Find 7a is crippled compared to Find 7 (2Gb vs 3Gb, 1080p vs 1440p, etc)
  • I'm typing this on the OPO right now, and I have to disagree. The price and specs are right, but the subtle details on the device are all off... The touchscreen isn't sensitive enough to my liking and my earphone when speaking on calls goes out all the time, requiring a device reset before working again on a daily basis. It's too bad... I was really trying to like the phone...
  • Could this table be any less readable?
  • Yes.
  • Yes.... YES it can although not sure how. Posted via Android Central App
  • This. I gave up trying to read it. ...and I'm doing this on a 22" 1080p monitor, not my phone screen.
  • Surely it would have made more sense to make it an image file. I didn't even realise there were comparing so many devises until I opened it on the browser... Posted via Android Central App
  • Meh, just a bunch of me-too products that will be marketed as revolutionary and the isheep will lap it up.
  • when did the LG G3 downgrade to a 5.3" screen?
  • Haha. Ikr? Must've been a typo Posted via the LG G3
  • The bezels on the iPhone 6 plus are huge. That make it 5 mm taller than even the Note 4 with a 5.7 screen.
  • The Note 4 is IP67?
  • This was news to me too... Did I miss something?
  • sadly no :/
  • I was wishing for this to be hiddenly true as well. I don't see how they couldn't have achieved it. The S Pen could easily, easily be waterproofed itself and the slot could have been entirely self contained from the internal components without issue. That seems simple enough to me anyway.
  • I agree, it could have easily been made waterproof. The S Pen may be the easiest part to waterproof. It has no real electronic parts aside from the WACOM sensor and the button/tip could have made use of a nice rubber gasket. Just my two cents.
  • The single missing feature from me pre-ordering the note 4. Posted via Android Central App
  • While I do agree, I really am eager to get the new Note. Still going to research it heavily but I don't see a downside to moving up from the Note 3. While waterproofing would be grand, I have adopted, faithfully, the ZeroLemon battery and will now not have to miss a feature to have it. Plus whenever I need to waterproof any of my devices I have pouches to use for that. I don't fully trust the S5's water tightness for how I would be using my phone in and around water so it's not a critical thing. I firmly believe Samsung has future plans already in R&D for much better solutions than a gasket. I mean come on our military gets the first line tech, and it takes a long time to trickle down and I've seen their waterproof gadgetry it's impressive. Only can imagine what comes to the civ side of things in the next couple years.
  • That one threw me off too. I would love it if that were true, but sadly i think its just a typo.
  • Nothing beats the G3.
    Plain and simple
  • It Is true Posted via the Android Central App
  • You're Lg G3 is well beyond old news. According to this it's junk. The Galaxy Note 4 is the ONLY KING of android as well as the phablet category made prominent by Samsung. Enjoy reading..... From my Galaxy Note 3 on T-Mobile via Android Central App
  • 1+1 is better! $350 vs $700+ for note 4! Haha! Posted via Android Central App on 1+1
  • No
  • Have you ever tried a $350 phone with $850 specs? Don't speak until you either Own or have Owned a OPO.
  • Don't have to. The users and the company has told us all we need. The Moto G is a better phone.
  • Just the fact you don't have to ask for an invite to buy it makes it better. OPPO deserves to rot for that kind of crap.
  • Oppo and OPO (OnePlus One) are two different things...
  • I never drove a 1980 Yugo either but I know it is POS
  • Whoa man! A lot of Samsung users were conceived in the back of Yugos. Gotta be more sensitive! Posted via Android Central App
  • Yeah but this isn't their grandma's phone Posted via Android Central App
  • The Oneplus wasn't made back in 1980, it has a Snapdragon 801, 3GB ram, 1080p, 64GB, and in my pocket right now
  • the Yugo was a amusing POS especially if you didn't pay good money for it. try hard braking and the doors flying open.

  • Totally Posted via the Android Central App
  • yea you might want to watch this and rethink that "junk" comment
  • *your and TouchWiz is more than enough reason to avoid the Note 4.
  • According me some other guy, the Note series are all junk. LG G3 owns anything samsung.
  • There's pages like that for every phone, including yours: I'm sure once the Note 4 is released, the problem pages will follow.
  • I can honestly say I've never experienced any of these issues. Not saying they don't happen, but not too me. Here's the real testimony... go to your local cell phone retail outlet and ask what the reps are using. I don't know about where you live, but I always find out is the G3.

  • The regular G3 is garbage. Top reviewers like MKBHD and Erika the technology nerd also confirmed this. Now the Korean G3 with the Snapdragon 805 is a beast... Posted via My (unlimited everything) T-Mobile Galaxy S5...
  • I agree! I'm a long time Samsung user who is not going back anytime soon. The G3 kills my old Note 2 and my father's Note 3! Granted, the Note 4 looks pretty cool, but I am SO happy with my G3 that I could care less about any other phone. It's fast, the features are actually useful, and the radios are super strong! Honestly, the improved reception on all radios (WiFi, GPS, etc) is so dramatic, that I'd need to see physical evidence that Samsung has corrected this ongoing issue. I don't drop wifi. I get instant GPS lock. Plus, the screen is amazing. Also, I don't care what reviews mention an occasionally "stuttering" display... I can honestly say that's been a non-issue. Battery life is amazing! As for the iPhone... I've used an iPhone and I understand the appeal. I'm not sure that will translate to a 5.5" screen. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Really? Nothing? How about the HTC One M8? I have both and in real world comp M8 takes it by far. The ONLY thing the G3 has is a great camera. Gs has lag and stutter. The M8 is pretty much flawless. I laugh again at your statement.
  • I can't see shit captain

    Seriously, their performance is superb all around. Posted via the Android Central App on VZW Moto X
  • The first gen Moto X was extremely well optimized. We'll see about this second gen device.
  • True, but atrocious camera and screen on time were really disappointing.
    That's all they had to upgrade for this year but seems like they will still be behind the competition there.
    Hate that they made it so much bigger too. Posted via the Android Central App on VZW Moto X
  • I don't know what you're talking about. I have a house full of teenagers all the time, sporting all sorts of different versions of the iPhone on different carriers, and they all have major problems. Battery life sucks, camera works so-so sometimes, network connectivity issues, etc. etc. Posted via Android Central App
  • This is why I loved my beloved blackberry. Functionality with little specs is a real thing. Only thing with the iPhone is their simplicity. I just don't see the draw. Blackberry had bbm and keyboard, my note has the pen and size and the iPhone has.............??? Posted via Android Central App
  • Their phones are fast as lightening. If they can make extra coin with less specs, then more power to them. Have to hand that to them and their walled garden.
  • Um the G3 has a 5.5 inch screen not 5.3..
  • Yup!
  • I'm surprised Apple took the leap to a 5.5" variant
  • Cause Steve's dead. Never would have happened on his watch.
  • You know there was a group at Apple that popped champagne when he died and immediately started designing devices with larger screens and an OS that could use 3rd party keyboards.
  • There was more than one group. Look at how many millions they were able to save out of the dream campus design without the OCD leadership. Creativity existed as long as it was Steve's way. Posted via Android Central App
  • I see what you did there
  • They should have named the 5.5" iPhone 6 the "iPad Nano". Now we can rip on the iFans' phablets. Posted from my LG LS970 via "The Force"
  • Apple just invented the phablet category folks.
  • Welcome to 2014 Apple! I still wouldn't opt for your suffocation chamber. You've now officially jumped the shark!
  • Jumped the what now?.. I've heard of jumping on a hoarse... Or a bandwagon. But a shark?
  • Fonzie jumped (on his motorcycle) over a shark on Happy Days, which was a turning point of the series - it turned to crap. Jumping the shark is a common term to indicate that they've turned a corner - a very bad corner.
  • Yep yep yep...
  • It's an idiom for going mainstream.
  • "Jumped the shark", a term to describe a moment when something that was once great has reached a point where it will now decline in quality and popularity. Origin of this phrase comes from a Happy Days episode where the Fonz jumped a shark on waterskis. Thus was labeled the lowest point of the show.
  • Name one thing that Android already does and does so well that you're happy enough to call it reliable...that Apple announced they're doing (late) with the iPhone 6. Sure as hell NFC payments aint one of them
  • There isn't anything about the iPhone 6 which would take me away from right now, although I'm sure it is lovely phone. And as for the apple watch... Bleuch! LG watch R please! And a Note 4... Posted via Android Central App
  • I thought that the Apple watch looked pretty good. It has a lot of features that seem interesting. I too am waiting for the g watch r though. I wonder why AC hasn't reported on the Apple watch yet. Posted via the Android Central App
  • It is either imore or connectedly's job....I could see a comparison chart up though like the phones.
  • I'm just surprised that we haven't seen the usual Apple just "invented" the smartwatch article yet. That's all.
  • "ONE MORE THING!!!" Apple just invented EVERYTHING!! Including the puke I hurled when looking at the Apple watch.
  • It is too ugly for someone to write that with a straight face
  • Lol
  • I loved the I mean the split screen for I mean the I mean everything we have had for 2 years! Where's the A-pen? Oh that's right. As bad as the unpacked events are, at least 3/4 of the crowd ate not Samsung emplyees, and you can actually stream it. It's like a cult over there. Sadly enough, I have to use a 5c for work.....basically use it for calls and texts. Old eyes can't see a damn thing on it.
  • Sorry for your luck. We do not have work phones but if we did it would be Samsung or BB. Those are the only real choices in corporate as far as I am concerned right now. With L it is a whole different ball of wax. It will be a game changer with Android/Corporate. I wasnt going to make myself watch that event. Followed iMore a bit in between work stuff but loved everyone complaining about the feed. I guess their AppleTV didn't get the last update....
  • Wow, I had some bad grammar in the last post. I will admit, even being an Android fan, if the 6 impressed, I would consider purchasing and drop in my work sim. 2 things I took away: Crime is on the upswing, as thieves take fingers to access the pay feature and make purchases A daughter watches(no pun) her mothers heart rate via the watch as she passes another state. Now if it came with those leaked celeb photos......I kid I kid.
  • One of the things I got out of it They finally got S-Health. First thing I thought of when I was going through I More after the fact
  • Haha good call. TW sucks! /s
  • I wasn't impressed. I liked the different options but functionality I wasn't. To be fair though I haven't been impressed with any of the smart watches other than the gear s which makes me the exception, ha. Posted via Android Central App
  • Please use a chart format that a person can actually see all devices to compare! Why no miracast or Chromecast mirroring for TV out on the Android deivces??
  • LOL @ iPhone 6's prices and whoever is getting it.
  • Lol! Posted via Moto X (VZ)
  • Yeah, this is the worst comparison chart ever. Hahaha. You can't read anything!
  • iPhone 6 and 6 plus screens,are not IPS LED,but IPS LCD (with LED backlight,like all LCD's smartphones!)
  • Really makes you appreciate what a beast the Note4 will be. Amazing phone. Apple, you finally made it to class! Please take a seat in the back, you have a lot of catching up to do.
  • The Galaxy Alpha is missing and now you guys should know why Samsung made it. Why do I think Samsung when I look at those phones and watch apple announced today?
  • Samsung released first. One could easily say apple copied them. They certainly did with the size.
  • The iPhone 6 design was leaked first back in January, while the Galaxy Alpha was only heard of like a month ago.
  • Nah the alpha was around since the s5 got released. Posted via Android Central App
  • I continue to be very happy with my G3! The new iPhones look great, but my god are they expensive! I went with an iPhone for a while- great phone, but just limiting to what I can do to customize and navigate.
  • I just gotta say it, paying $500 for a phone ON CONTRACT is bananas (never mind nearly $1,000 off contract). I'm glad they skipped 32GB and are offering 128GB options but 16GB on flagship devices is still pretty paltry, specially on a $300 on contract 5.5" flagship device that's positioned as ideal for content consumption. I'm curious whether their NFC implementation will even remotely interoperable, tho at least they've adopted it finally. Both models still seem to be chasing the thinness crown, doesn't work out too well for the large one tho... Taller than a Note and it has a smaller display. Nevermind the comparison against the G3... Considerably taller (12mm!) and wider, and that folks, is the advantage of on screen buttons (tho Apple's circle button is pretty wasteful compared even to Samsung's, just something they're unwilling to let go at this point).
  • No phone is $1,000 on contract.. The most is the Iphone 6 plus which is $499 on contract (holy shit, that's still outrageously expensive).
  • "(never mind nearly $1,000 off contract)" Did I miss something?
  • I guess not, I re-read it.. I must have read it wrong..
  • $1000 off contract is what the Note Edge will cost.
  • It's the best 4.7in phone available.... I can no longer get a top tier flagship smaller than 5in on android which is sad... Anything under 5in is a mini... Im considering a change even though i strongly believe Android is stronger... But I'm tired of huge phones.. I don't want to compromise my desire for the best either so i don't want a mini or a moto x 2013.. Again I'm considering a 6 Posted via Android Central App
  • Is it? How big was the screen size on the Z2 Compact? I don't remember the specs to be honest, and I wouldn't exactly consider it top tier, but as far as specs go, is it not comparable to the iPhone 6 4.7?
  • Yep apple has both sizes covered. Android got out of the high end market under 5.2 inches or so. It's really too bad.
  • You're either not looking hard enough, or you're not trolling hard enough! How about the Z3 Compact? Or the new Moto X 2014? Have you ever thought that you might be compromising yourself by going for the iPhone full stop?
  • The new Moto X is actually 5.2 inches. You can troll better than that, lol.
  • But the 2014 Moto X has almost the same physical dimensions. Are people complaining about a screen being too big or a phone being too big?
  • They're complaining about the screen, which does get kinda frustrating, considering that OEMs are fitting bigger screens into similar footprints as smaller devices.
  • Z3 compact has 4.5" screen.......flagship specs.
  • And, if it doesn't come to the US, then he's still shit outta luck. And, c'mon, one phone doesn't invalidate his statement. Let's be reasonable, now.

For those of us who prefer smaller screens (a minority, apparently), the only options now under 5" are the iPhone and...the Z3 Compact, which has no guarantee of easy availability in the US. Even the Moto X made the insane jump to the 5.3" or whatever it is. Way too big. The Z3 Compact is the obvious option, but when will it be available in the US? There are simply no good options for smaller phones except the iPhone. And that's sad.
  • Please forgive my lack of knowledge but I'm just not getting something. If a device has the same dimensions on the previous year but was able to increase the screen size you do not want it because the screen only is bigger? I don't understand... I mean I can understand if the whole phone was bigger or thicker. I'm not trying to be a wise guy I'm just trying to understand the thought process
  • The irony of your comment is that the smaller of the iPhones might as well be considered a mini with its 720p sub 400 ppi screen. If it makes you happy then enjoy but your not getting the latest and greatest in it either. Posted via Android Central App
  • either this guy's been living in a cave and doesn't know about the Xperia Compact phones, or he's a troll.
  • So, the existence of ONE PHONE with a screen size under 5 inches that may not EVER make it to the US makes him a troll? Where do you people come up with this shit?
  • +100 Posted via the Android Central App on VZW Moto X
  • You don't have to buy your phones from the carrier, you know. so there's a Z1, Z2 and Z3 compact, all good specs.
    there's the LG G2 and G3 mini?
  • If he uses ATT or Tmo he can get one off eBay anytime he wants one.....not sure why he needs to buy it from a carrier, unless it is a CDMA problem.......
  • Agreed. I consider my Nexus 5 compact. Anyway nothing on the new iPhone 6 has me considering trying it, the Note 4 had peaked my interest though. Honestly though I am waiting for the next Nexus.
  • You won't miss Android much. Now third party keyboards and widgets are available, and you'll get access to the far superior apps on iOS.
  • There is much more to android then keyboards n widgets... But for regular users it doesn't really matter. Posted via the Android Central App on VZW Moto X
  • lol "far superior". The iPhone "far superior" apps mostly relate to the iPad vs Android tablets. As far as comparing phone apps to phone apps, sorry....that's just not the case.
  • Actually the best 4.7“ phone happens to be the HTC One (M7) which can still be purchased new and at discounted prices with carrier contracts.
  • Except the camera.. I love my m7, but the camera is driving me nuts.. and the m8 isn't any better
  • This post right here is one thing that bothers me @ "Android". Android mfrs have hitched their stars to bigger is better. That works up to the point that we are or were. 5"+ screen + bezel is just too big for many as a daily driver. Would be interesting to see Sammy, HTC, Moto, and LG etc roll out a two tier flagship strategy like Apple just did. Call it a mini, but make the specs equal sans display size. I use the Note3 and absolutely love it. BUT, if I had the choice, I would opt for a 5-5.2" version. Plus, they should shave @ 80% off the top bezel, 10% off the bottom and 50% off the side bezels (aka Sharp phone / iPhone6) in order to get the length under control. I might even keep the 5.7" screen if they would continue to shave away the bezels. LG keeps doing it. HTC seems clueless. Sammy has reverted from the course. Sharp?
  • The Note 4 is waterproof? Are you sure about this?
  • Wow the screen resolution is still horrible. Just now getting NFC? 350 for the watch? Seriously. Posted via Android Central App
  • Note 4 please Posted via Android Central App
  • I don't understand why you omitted the iPhone 6 & iPhone 6 Plus memory.
  • Apparently its still 1GB which I'm sure is plenty enough to take advantage of that 64bit architecture. Or maybe the 64bit thing is just a gimmick. To be fair, IOS does a pretty good job with that little mem, but then it doesn't try to multitask properly
  • You gotta love that 16gb to 64 GB storage bump. They are banking on people wanting more than 16gb knowing they have to over pay for 64 when 32 is the sweet spot.
  • I must be an abnormal user; I have a 64GB phone now and I love the space. Sadly, I miss the micro-SD slot.
  • I have a 64GB card in my phone. It's awesome to not have to worry about space.
  • But, they're actually charging the same for the 64GB as they were the 32GB. So, they've effectively dropped the price for the 64GB by 100 dollars. Whoopdee doo, lol.

  • Well I could pay $850 for 64gb iPhone 6+ or get 2 oneplus one's for less than $750... Oh wait, I got the ones already. Let me know apple when you stop charging ridiculous prices. Once the other U.S carriers follow tmobile and get rid of contracts, you and all the other major brands are done for Posted via Android Central App on 1+1
  • They conveniently left the OPO out of the discussion. They claim to compare it to androids "latest and greatest " yet the OPO came out after the galaxy s5 (which is now 5 months old) and One M8 is 6 months old. I know it's not generally available yet but the specs beat the one M8 in more areas than it doesn't, competes with the s5 and the moto x 2014 is a joke. The OPO beats or matches it on EVERY LEVEL. But I guess they gotta keep the advertisers happy. Posted via...The One
  • Well it has been said a bunch of times, and not just by me, that the little childish games have make people stop talking about it. I am paraphrasing a podcast.... The 1- deserves no love at is a yugo
  • They're not talking about it in your circles maybe, but I'm sure you know I keep up with the company, trust me, their doing just fine. Anyone who wants to lose interest, go ahead. Unless it's a note 4, packing those 2015 specs, your just blowing $. All the crying, OnePlus hasn't budged, they had a plan, and they're sticking to it. People lose interest in Samsung, HTC and LG EVERY DAY. Soon to end the invite system, expanding into new countries, yeah OnePlus is hurting so bad because people are losing interest. Let em lose it, who cares Posted via...The One
  • THey said that stuff long ago about dropping invites and expanding. They lie and play games. THey are not worth the effort. We have done this dance and I really do not want to do it again. Have fun!
  • YOU replied to MY comment friend. This is the "comments" section. Don't comment to say "in not doing this again".
    I know I stick up for this company a lot. I'm not a fanboy, they have missed deadlines, had manufacturing issues etc, SO WHAT, NAME ME A COMPANY THAT DOESN'T MISS DEADLINES OR HAVE MANUFACTURING ISSUES. You've heard me say the galaxy s3 and OG HTC Evo 4g were game changers, I respect innovation. Thinking outside the box. To offer top notch specs, carrier unlocked for half the prices of other flagship's is innovative, name me a company that's done it before besides the nexus line. Not a entry or mid level device. No, they're NOT for everyone, show me a company THAT IS Posted via...The One
  • I only responded to tell you why they get no love around here. I was not trying to pick a fight. I can understand slipping here and there.The company has lied from its INCEPTION. They just keep on going.
  • Lies? Okay. A blatant lie and missed deadline are 2 different things. Anyhow, I'm not concerned about the lack of love, Samsung, LG and others pay the bills around here. Even Phil said during the giveaway that's it's an awesome phone, so awesome they bought another one to give away. Posted via...The One

  • Now that's funny Posted via...The One
  • I don't rip heads off @all. Their marketing blows ass, they need to release the phone to the public like 5 months ago, the effed that up big time. The software isn't perfect, some OPOs are out there bad units are out there. it is not fair to seek a invite to pay YOUR $ to a company. There is room for improvement. There's also room for improvement at Samsung, LG and HTC and they sell those bloated phones for double the1+. You want a bloated woman? Why have a bloated phone? OPO gets a bad rap deservedly for their missteps, but I've never met a hater of the device based SOLELY on the device and not the company. Ijs keep it real. Some things wrong. Some things very right Posted via...The One
  • A Yugo? We all know the opinion of one outweighs many. Move on, your hate makes you boring. Art least I'm honest the marketing sucks, you can try to Shit on the phone all you want because we'll believe you before phonearena, AC, phandroid, android authority, GSM arena and all the other sites who vouch for it. At least I'm honest, Samsung is a giant who doesn't care about you as an individual and Touchwiz is horrific even with the improvements. They're slow with updates (our "crappy" 1+ 1 got 4.4.4. A month ago, the s5 today) and overcharge for sub par hardware. The fact that OPO makes a phone that even COMPETES for half the price should show you how much of a fanboy you are. I'll repeat what I said earlier: show me a company that doesn't have hardware issues or misses deadlines. I forgot every Samsung, LG and HTC phone that ever rolled off the production line was perfect and those companies have NEVER missed a deadline right? No bad testimonials from the big companies in the history of smartphones their soooooooo perfect Posted via...The One
  • Like I said, I am not gonna dance with you again on this. Neither mind will be changed by it, it is a pointless discussion. No offensive given, it just is not worth the time anymore....just like the Nexus 4 isn't worth a discussion....

  • Wah wah, you want a invite, you'll get one, I could send you at least 3 links right now where someone was giving away invites, there's threads on THIS FORUM FROM TODAY giving away invites lmao. Can't help it someone lazy enough not to look around can't find a invite. Stay in touch with g+, twitter, AC forums, OnePlus forums, and you'll find a invite. Invite or no, minus the note 4, you're getting all the best 2014 specs for half the price, a invite is a small price to pay to save $300 Posted via...The One
  • The invite thing is horrible, their campaigns to sell are really bad, and fail miserably . The one plus one is a good phone, but sadly their marketing team is really bad. Posted via Android Central App
  • You're right Jorge, but you can't deny its a kickass phone. I agree, the invite system has slowed them down, but it hasn't stopped them. Still growing, still expanding. The worst mistake are the ones you don't learn from. There is NO SUCH THING as a perfect start up Posted via...The One
  • I don't know how you can say OnePlus is a failure. They announced their strategy and stuck to it. When the One was first introduced I knew I wanted that phone and went out and got it.......two, in fact. I'm not a nerd or technical whiz, just an average person who sought after the best spec phone for the money and made it happen. Posted via the Android Central App with my OnePlus One.
  • Not too worried about anyone else's preferences. Quite happy with my M8.
  • Lower PPI, probably lacks most of the next gen gestures or voice recognition of the Moto X, excellent build quality, and a battery that will no doubt fail repeatedly (this comes from experience with other iCrap).. This just isn't anywhere NEAR what was expected and costs FAR too much for what you get.. Sorry Crapple.. this is still far behind anything Android not to mention a Crapple Watch that's also WAY too much money and lacks innovation.
  • Moto X 2014 seems like a great phone except that it only has 32GB total and no micro SD slot! Not cool to have a limitation like this when phones are increasing in keeping stuff. No body wants to do the cloud thing because it very costly unless you have unlimited cellular but even then they slow your speed down.
  • I never had friends ditching "crapple" for battery failure, like they did w Nexuses, Galaxies etc. Apple is the best when it comes to power management - both screen on and idle state. So no clue what are you talking about here. You might know something that people don't. Posted via the Android Central App on VZW Moto X
  • Pretty sure the S5 also supports Miracast as a video output method (along with MHL).
  • Should have used the LG G3....closest thing to the iPhone +
  • Right. Because G3 overheats and the cheap, cost cutting plastic cracks. Yea closest thing to iPhone.
  • This comment got a good laugh outta me, haha
  • So you've owned a G3 or used one. My phone only gears up when I play graphically intense games but I've never had overheating issues. Also battery life is awesome mind you it was crap in the my first week of using it. Posted via the Android Central App
  • ninja gone
  • I think adding in specs for the OnePlus One would be interesting. Or are we just sticking with "easily" available phones, or phones you get from AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, etc.?
  • iPhone plus is no match for the Note 3 or Note 4, not to mention the LG G3, HTC One Max and Huawei Ascend Mate.
  • ...or EVEN the LG OPTIMUS G PRO, Z2, Z3, OnePlusOne ( although their INVITE B.S. is a disaster!), and slew of ANDROID Flagships from...2013!
    What a bunch of goddammn iCHUMPS.
  • This doesn't speak to capability though. Again, we're getting into some kind of spec sheet comparison. The biggest draw to the new iPhone (other than screen size) is the Apple Pay service. 83% of all credit card transactions in the US covered with Apple's partners. With Apple having over 50% penetration in the smartphone market in the USA, this means that in two years time at least 20% of all credit card transactions will be on an iPhone. Could be as high as 40%. Apple Pay also allows for online payments. Effectively, Apple may have just done some major damage to PayPal. And it's really shown up Google Wallet too, where Google is mired in fights with carriers and the credit card companies, every iPhone 6 will sport Apple Pay, supported by three major credit card companies and most of the major American banks. Wait till they roll this out internationally.
  • I think Google could care less if Apple spearheads mobile payments. They actually may be happy that it happens because there are way more android phone owners than there are iPhone. It will if anything pave the way to the door opening for both. Yes it will be "cool" that you'll see people with iPhones buying things without pulling a card but I can at least speak for myself and say that I won't be lined up at the Apple store just because of that reason. Posted via Android Central App
  • Absolutely. Would be great for Google if Apple leads the way. The problem for Google is that they just can't seem to follow. They have to negotiate with OEMs, carriers, and the card issuers to get this done. And they haven't yet seemed to have done that successfully. Just MasterCard and a few US banks as a partner. Not even all the carriers in the US. No progress outside the USA. This means that Apple gets further entrenched among the middle class consumers who have money. And now Apple will be stealing PayPal's business with online payments. This is far bigger than most people realise at the moment. Personally, I'm still hoping Google brings Wallet to Canada. Otherwise, I'll be jumping to the iPhone eventually. Hard to justify waiting for Google for years.
  • Yeah let's all have I phones and apple pay so someone can hack our credit cards.. And nudes Posted via Android Central App
  • Except that no Android phone is safe from a phishing attack either. Keep in mind that it's not iCloud that got hacked. It's dumb celebrities that gave up their passwords in response to phishing emails. The same could have easily happened with their Google services. Apple Pay is just as secure as Google Wallet in my opinion. The Apple advantage is the number of partners they've got going.
  • So they said all that crap about nfc and bigger screens just to later make a phone with both? Lmao. On another note i cant wait to see how much that replacement screen cost and the repair rating. Its giving me that ipod touch 5th gen process vibe lol
  • Wow - 4.7" screen? Welcome to 2012! What happened to the viewpoint of visionary Steve Jobs who said no one would ever buy such a large phone (2010). He must be spinning in his grave with a 5.5" iPhone now being offered. Ohh.... and it has NFC, um again, welcome to 2012 too! Way to blaze the trail Apple, just keep following in Google's dust. Apple is just fortunate to have built up a following of lemmings and huge cash stock so they'll be able to keep motoring for a while, but being a "visionary" company is just a distant memory now. BTW, must have been an Apple Fan that designed the comparison table (it sucks).
  • And it took Apple one year to deliver. Think about productivity!
  • Remember how people were bashing Samsung for their note 4 design, saying it's the same as the note 3? How they feel about the iPhone 6?
    Or the shrunked down ipad air? Posted via Android Central App

  • what's phase detection in S5 rear camera?
    it is mention in above comparision in S5's column.
  • UM, THE LG G3 HAS A 5.5" SCREEN. Let's not act brand new just because a new iPhone came out. Posted via the Android Central App on my T-Mobile LG G3
  • Also, the LG G3 has a Quad-core 2.5 GHz Krait 400.
  • I agree that this table is pretty useless as is. You have to scroll to the bottom then move it to the right and then guess if you chose the right phone and scroll up to look at the name and specs. You then have to reverse the process to go back and look at the specs of the iPhone 6. The only phone this is worth looking at is the Galaxy S5.
  • The biggest problem with these charts is that they don't tell the real story, the ONLY story that matters - how well the device actually performs in day to day use? Is there any lag, delays or other performance issues? How well it will perform one year from now? My GS4 was speedy on day one, and now one year in it's an unusable piece of shit. The same problem has plagued many of my past Android phones. And how good is the user experience? Samsung's software is laughable, the user experience seems tailored for 15 year old chinese girls. HTC's interface is fantastic, but they will be out of business in a year or two so who cares? People really need to quit getting so hung up on specs, because like megapixels they tend to greatly exaggerate actual results.
  • ^ THIS! Every year iPhone gets higher benchmark scores compared to flagship Android phones, even though its specs are lower.
  • Benchmark means nothing, lol! REAL WORLD USE is everything. Just because a phone benchmarked higher in a certain area doesn't mean that it will be better.
  • Exactly !!!

  • Pretty pumped that since Apple has NFC mine will actually be useful.

  • Using Android now but will go back to the iPhone, the iPhone 6 plus really looks nice, both systems are nice, it really comes down on how you use the phone, as for me I use mine more for music and I just prefer the Apple system for this.
  • The Note 4 is a beast, along with the most powerful tool the S-Pen there isn't anything that touches it. The S-Pen is the most powerful tool on any hand held device. Any device around the 5.5 size needs or should have S-Pen features or close to.
  • AC please try to see the table on your own AC android app... Posted via the Android Central App from my OnePlus One
  • Hmph Posted via the Android Central App
  • I owned an iPhone, iPhone 3G, iPhone 4, and iPhone 5. Switched to Nexus 4, then Nexus 5. I will say that I like the options to customize Android, however the Android devices have given me more problems than I ever had with iPhone. Also, I feel that the hardware is vastly superior to what I've had with the Nexus phones. The iPhone just feels higher quality. I am very intrigued by the curved edges of the iPhone 6 glass, which is very reminiscent of the Nexus 4 glass, which felt oh so nice when your finger slid across the edge as you were swiping. I'm still torn between buying new Moto X and an iPhone 6. Not sure which route that I will go, but leaning Moto X. I don't really get into the whole fanboy thing.
  • Also, very glad Apple added NFC payments to the iPhone. That should speed the adoption of NFC, and would be a deal breaker for me ever move off of Android. I wish they had added Qi charging (of course, the Moto X doesn't either), but as always Apple created their own modified standard and implemented it in the Apple Watch. I am certain that the iPhone 6s will include the MagSafe wireless charging feature that the Apple Watch has.
  • I would also argue that people who measure specs against specs Android phones against iPhones are blind. If you've ever used an iPhone, none have performance related issues. Why it requires half of the RAM that Android does, or half of the clockrate on the processor, I'm not sure. However, the performance is fine.
  • IOS is better at memory management. Proof of that is that you don't have to go into settings on an IOS phone and clear the RAM the way I've had to do periodically with my Galaxy 3. Android apps simply don't clean up after themselves when they're done.
  • Maybe because the Android OS is more dynamic while the iOS is basically just... static? Posted via the Android Central App
  • Isn't the LG G3 a 5.5" screen? The table says 5.3.
  • Thanks for posting this as something to show our iFriends that Apple simply catches up. Posted via Android Central App
  • The Samsung GS5 actually has a 5 GHz radio like it had the Galaxy S3.
    The S3 was the first to have NFC and now after two phone updates Apple has done it, wow.. Lame.
    Still fanboys will buy it if it cost up to 700 bucks, let's be honest, Apple folks love the status quo from having something useless and expensive.
  • Seems to me like there is a typo on the screen size of the LG G3, it should be 5.5" instead of 5.3"
  • I just want to say, Note 4, ALL THE WAY!!! And on a small Note (hahaha!), I didn't know there was more to the table on my Pulse app, but when I opened it up on my Note 10.1 2014 edition tablet in Google Chrome Beta, it looked fantastic. Just sayin'. And lastly, the comparison to IOS and Android really doesn't make sense as IOS is really just a glorified severely locked down Phone Launcher. That is clearly why ram and specs don't matter for iPhones. If all Android was- was a phone Launcher(I can list several Launchers that work better than IOS- Nova Launcher for starters) and not a real full blown OS then Android devices wouldn't need great specs or great hardware to run. And none of the copycat Android features Crapple steals and copies are legit. Widgets aren't really widgets, Notifications, etc., etc., etc...
  • What exactly you mean by your comparison? Both are smartphone and tablet platforms that run applications that third parties can write and code for them. The only real difference that I can see is that IOS doesn't use screen widgets.
  • What no OnePlus One?? *sadface*
  • Because that phone is sadface.
  • All I require in my next phone is; Quad HD screen no bigger than the LG G3
    At least 32GB, preferrably 64GB usable memory to install apps to
    Proper NFC payments like the gods-damned iPhone can now do. IN MY COUNTRY. The UK
    Replaceable battery So why have Google just sat back and watched Apple steam ahead of it with NFC payments? It's all good and well being able to tell an iPhone user, "well my android phones have had NFC for years", but if he's able to pay for the coffee that we're drinking with his phone and I'm not, then WTF, Google? And as one of the millions of mugs who finds it more convenient (although more expensive in the long run) to buy a phone on contract, STOP only offering 16GB versions! I'm in the military and CANNOT rely on any cloud storage. I want to be able to install more than the pathetic amount of apps that less than 16GB usable storage allows. I love SD cards, but unless I can install apps to them, they don't fix my problem. Make it happen, Google, you're embarrassing yourself!
  • You're missing the point on payments. The Apple Pay functionality (which is just NFC branded) will only increase adoption of NFC. It is not as if you won't be able to make payments at the same vendors with your Android phone.
  • Perhaps I didn't make myself clear. I want to be able to use NFC payments on my current phone NOW. My last 2 phones have had NFC and I use my contactless debit and credit cards all the time. Why can't I use my phone to do this in the UK?
  • You missed the posters point. Right now you can't do Google payments in the UK. Apple will be ahead on Google on this when the new phones come out.
  • Yeah, the scrollable table was not real obvious. I was wondering why you chose those three phones to compare to. One question - as a future buyer of a Passport, what the hell is a "Time of Flight" sensor????? Intriguing.
  • When you get pissed off at it, and you fling it, you'll know your hang time.
  • Hah! Awesome :)
  • When 4.7 inch Android phones come out with 720p resolution, they are considered mid-rangers at best.
    They can have great internals, but "that screen! :(" Not sure the point I'm trying to make; just saying. Edit: Oh and that table sucks. Did anyone even preview this article before posting?
  • Very good chart. Thank-you for your efforts.
  • This table is great! very much appreciated. I am an Iphone fan...have always been... but had to go to Samsung with a bigger screen. Now that apple is bigger (not so sure about the better just yet) I will more than likely go back to iphone when I am eligible...but then a new update will probably be out. With the comparison, it doesn't look like there is much of a difference between the S5 and Iphone 6. S5's camera is still much better...everything else looks pretty much identical.
  • plain and simple, apple just know how to sell a product because it does not even come close to android phones in term of technology or hardware, well they are well build but that is it.
  • Samsung was actually right, this new iPhone will compete with the galaxy alpha more than the galaxy note!
  • The important thing is.... that it will compete. Competition is the one thing that both Android and IOS users should want.... it makes both platforms better in the long run.
  • Thanks this was a great way of comparing my Galaxy S5 to all the other top Android phones. :) I don't care about the IPhone! Haha Posted via the Android Central App

  • Ars technica has this pdf you can print out to get a live comparison of the sizes of what will be Apple's phone lineup, the Iphone 5 series, the 6 and the 6 plus.
  • Wow 8 mega pixel camera wow I must go a buy one right away NOT. Made me chuckle when Crapple announced a 5.5inch iPhone. Seems someone has android phablet envy. Posted via Android Central App on the behemoth that is the note 3
  • You do realize the amount of pixels doesn't make the camera it's how the camera is implemented. Posted via Android Central App
  • At least the chart here has their specs right!
  • Great chart... Agreed that it would be great if there is an option to download this as an image.
  • Omg apple is so behind the curve! The GS6 and Note 4 make the iPhone 6 look like a shitty 2012 phone. Posted via Android Central App
  • What a goddammn JOKE. They need to call this the GREAT ANDROID ASS-BEATDOWN on the iCHUMP 2014!
  • I consider myself pure android, I have a HTC phone and a Nexus 7 mobile devices but have a Mac and a Windows 8.1 desktops to protect myself in case of meltdown . I watched some of the WWDC 14 videos about Yosemite and iOS 8 compatibility and new features within both. Maverick was a huge improvement over snow leopard and Yosemite looks like more improvements are on the way. Windows 8.1 needs improvement. iOS is getting better all the time as is Android. If iOS 8 works as advertized I may switch, got to let my wife upgrade and see first. LOL Lot's of people have stated phones have hit a wall in terms of improvemnts to the hardware and i agree, iPhone 6 looks to be on par with other phones, Finally! and I think iOS could work better now than Android but we will see about that.
  • Who's ready for all the fanboys to start bragging about NFC and the new apple pay system? I can hear it now. Lol Posted via Android Central App
  • Have you been watching your local news lately or prime time media news channels like NBC, ABC, CBS, etc..?!?! Its freakin comical!
  • Must be a wrong in the table, iPhone dont have TV out = HDMI or? sure there is converter but it's misleading to say it has HDMI i think. Lastly i would go for note4 myself.
  • I've been underwhelmed by the last two big announcements. I'm hoping the Nexus X (6) is something special. Posted via Android Central App
  • I didn't see any speaker spec when I checked out the specs on apple's site my daughter went to iphone 5s last upgrade and now my wife wants the iphone because our HTC Ones (m7) have a big issue with the camera all night photos are purple and useless. was thinking of trading them in but at $100 each I just stick it out the 11 months to upgrade. The dual speakers on front are the keeping point for me.
  • Nice to see the iPhone 6 Plus come with a decent battery life for once.
  • Holy crap balls! That BB Passport is one fugly POS!!! How would that thing even fit in a pocket?!
  • Just having water resistance,sd card and a removable battery pretty much kills both models. And IOS features are a joke compare to Android.
  • You might want to include benchmark scores too, 3DMark and Geekbench scores tend to be common, maybe even Sun Spider. That would be a good way of judging the hardware in each of them since not all SoCs are created equally.
