Samsung Galaxy S5 Vs. iPhone 6: Which One Should You Buy?

Samsung Galaxy S5 Vs. iPhone 6: Which One Should You Buy?

First World Problems: I want a new mobile for Christmas but there are too many options. Yeah, I know. I have 600 bucks to spare and I’m still whining. The thing is I’m not alone. I struggled a lot when I helped my boss to choose a phone system for the office, but I got help from these expert providers in the end. They were neutral, they were helpful. That’s not the case when buying a new mobile.

There’s a war, there are fans, and everybody has an opinion. If you’re one of those iPhone lovers who always get the latest model and cool accessories, you might overlook the latest Android reviews. The thing is that by offering tons of improvement over its predecessor, the top-of-the-range Samsung Galaxy S5 has evolved impressively. There’s no denying it.

It has a larger battery, bigger and brighter screen as well as a quicker processor than the Galaxy S4. The camera has improved providing faster, clearer snaps. Packing in a dedicated heart rate monitor, the fitness-tracking abilities have been enhanced as well. Featuring a one-of-a-kind fingerprint scanner, the S5 is the most reliable smartphone ever designed. Or so they say.

According to CNET, “Samsung's Galaxy S5 excels at everything that matters -- Android 4.4 KitKat OS; a bright, beautiful display; blistering quad-core processor; and an excellent camera experience.” Our favorite feature of the coveted Samsung Galaxy S5 is its unique water-resistance. Users can delight on using the smartphone at the beach or in the bathroom without having to constantly worry about water damage. Amazing, isn’t it?

Even though the Samsung Galaxy S5 faces some stiff competition, it’s one of the best smartphones around. Providing huge benefits, the smartphone is, by far, the biggest rival to the iPhone 6. Are you intrigued? Me too. Let’s check out why:

Screen Size

Even if the iPhone 6 is really close to the Samsung Galaxy S5 in terms of screen size, the latter is still bigger by 0.4 inches.


The Samsung Galaxy S5 has the most outstanding screen, its unique water resistance feature, a fingerprint scanner as well as a battery life that surpasses Apple’s iPhone.


This is the only category where Apple beats Samsung on this battle. Made of a gorgeous brushed aluminum, the iPhone 6 is just 6.9 mm thick compared to the 8.1 mm of the Samsung Galaxy S5. That’s why the former feels more comfortable after holding it for a while. Therefore, if you’re a person who likes phones that can be easily used with just one hand, you should go for an iPhone 6.

The verdict

Providing users with a microSD slot for affordable extra storage, a camera that exceeds the solid snapper on the iPhone 6 and a removable battery, the Samsung Galaxy S5 becomes, hands down, the most refined and compelling proposition. That’s before you even consider its price. It’s now a lot cheaper than the iPhone 6.

So I guess that’s it. Santa will be bringing me a Samsung Galaxy S5 this year.
