For the first time, Apple introduced two smartphones with different sized displays in a press conference. One of them is a Smartphone with a 4.7-inch display. The other a Phablet with 5.5 inch screen size.
The largest competitor Smasung has introduced a new top model a few days ago. The note 4. We compare both giant smartphones.
Apple is unbeaten at the design and processing quality of smartphones and co.. You realize just keeping a product from Apple in the hands. The used materials are high-quality, well-finished, and look good.
As for several generations, the iPhone consists of glass and aluminium. Looking for plastic backs and wobbly keys here to no avail. It is exactly even with the latest iPhone. The iPhone 6 plus inside an aluminum unibody enclosure. The entire front is made of glass. Not the hoped-for Sapphire Crystal, but still high-quality Gorilla glass 3.
The housing is in contrast to the iPhone 5 S at the edges and corners rounded off. That makes iPhone 6 plus, despite its enormous size, handy. The camera lens is something out of the housing out. 7.1 mm, that is iPhone 6 plus still thinner than the iPhone 5S.
How many Samsung Smartphone, the touch 4 is still partially made of plastic. But in the grade 4, a step in the right direction makes the Südkoreamische manufacturer. The frame to the Smartphone is made of metal for the first time. This gives the touch 4 already a much more noble feeling in the hand.
The back of the note 4 is, as with the previous model, made of thin, flexible plastic and can be removed. A structure is a leather back cover. The front of the note 4 is also made of glass, but it is provided around the display with a pattern, what gives a less noble look the whole. The note 4 is a huge difference with 8.5 mm not really thick, but in contrast to the iPhone.
The display of the note 4 is outstanding. Although the display of the predecessor is already among the best, Samsung has put up here again. The screen of the flagship measures 5.7 inches in diagonal, and offers a QHD resolution. These are 2,560 x 1440 pixels. It can be calculated ppi a pixel density of 515.
First tests confirm this technical data. The display is characterized by very sharp, crisp display and great colors. From every angle, the screen can be read perfectly.
The iPhone 6 plus offers for the first time history a full HD screen with 1920 x 1080 pixels in the Apple .The pixel density of the 5.5 display is located at exactly 400 ppi. That’s iPhone 6 plus display not only smaller, but not too hot. These are just technical data. As many know, Apple built very good displays. Whether in everyday very large differences between the QHD – and the FHD screens make up can be, I doubt. Also 400 ppi completely sufficient and offer very sharp images.
The camera in the Galaxy offers a 16-Megapixel resolution note 4. The iPhone 6 plus is equipped with only a camera with half, so 8 megapixels.
Fortunately, we know that it’s not only on the number of megapixels. The cameras of the iPhones are among the best that currently exists. The iPhone 6 plus a new iSight sensor got again a dual-tone LED-Flash and a faster auto-focus. The camera of the touch 4 comes out with a normal Flash. For this, a so-called “wide Selfie” with the front camera mode is available. Both Smartphonekameras have installed an optical image stabilizer.
Although the Megapixels are not on a par, there are the camera qualities of both smartphones. Only through proper testing the slight differences can be made visible.

The note of 4 uses Google’s operating system Android 4.4.4 in conjunction with Samsung TouchWiz interface. By Samsung’s proprietary software, many features have been fitted, which strongly to integrate for example also the S-pen in the use.
Overall, Samsung’s surface looks very cluttered and packed with features. Anyone looking for a clear and simple design, is better off with iOS.
A feature that was previously only for Android users, was with the iPhone 6 plus fitted in the Apple world.An NFC chip, which should be used to pay for with Apple pay now has the new iPhone.
A barometer and a fingerprint scanner are installed in two smartphones. The note 4 offers a huge advantage. It is not only with the fingers, but also with the S-pen to operate. This little pin inside the Interior of the Phablets and can be removed if necessary. With the pen, a much more accurate operation is possible.
A comparison between Apple and Android devices, it looks always the same: the technology used in the Android has a lot more power than the iOS competition on the sheet. A perfect combination of soft – and hardware, iPhones are still at least as fast.
Both Smartphones have the currently fastest hardware that is available for the device. When using it is can be noted little difference.

Battery, Apple has made still no exact figures. He should be designed for 14 hours video playback. The battery in the note of 4 measures 3.220 mAh and should reach similar values.
Both smartphones offer LTE, the fastest Wi-Fi standard and Bluetooth 4.0. The Note 4 is with 153.5 x 78.6 x 8.5 mm slightly shorter, sure but wider and thicker than the iPhone 6 plus with 158,1 x 77.8 x 7.1 mm. With 172 g, the iPhone is only 4 grams lighter than the note 4.

It’s hard to compare two smartphone based on completely different operating system. A so great iPhone wants to be compared but simply equal competition.
The iPhone 6 plus features the great design and high quality materials. The perfect coordination of hardware and software make the iPhone a great device.
The unique S-pen and the many applications speak for the Bill 4. A really great display and a good camera complete the whole package.
