Finally! The Titans are here battling it out for the crown. We pitched the Apple iPhone 6 against the Samsung Galaxy Alpha, and the results were phenomenal. This is Samsung’s first attempt at creating a metal finish device, and we must say that it looks and feels a lot better than any of their previous plastic finish endeavors.
Needless to say, both these devices are current range toppers and hence this one should be interesting. Hope you have fun reading it because we are surely having fun while piecing it together!
Design and Display:
The Samsung Galaxy Alpha boasts of a 4.7-inch Super AMOLED display sporting 1,280 x 720 pixel resolution along with 312ppi density. The iPhone 6 boasts of a 4.7-inch Retina HD LCD display with 1,334 x 750 pixel resolution along with 326ppi density.
Even though both these devices feature similar displays, the iPhone’s 750 pixel resolution slightly outperforms the Alpha. Numerous fans would like to disapprove of our decision as Samsung’s Super AMOLED displays are known to bring colors to life.
DxO, the display testing company, announced that Samsung’s displays are not just the best AMOLED displays, they are best that are available in the market today. Even though it is quite difficult to differentiate between a 750 pixel and 720 pixel resolution, but the differences between AMOLED and LCD screens are quite prominent.
Samsung wins this round by a hefty margin!
The Samsung Galaxy Alpha draws power from a 2.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor along with a 2 GB RAM and 32 GB of built-in memory. The Apple iPhone 6 draws power from a 1.39 GHz dual core A8 processor and M8 Motion co-processor along with 1 Gig of RAM and 16 GB of built-in storage.
The Samsung Galaxy Alpha draws power from a 1,860 mAh battery while Apple offers a 1,810 mAh unit. We have a clear winner here too! The Alpha’s battery backup outclasses the iPhone 6 prominently while the figures prove our claim.
The Alpha provides 11 hours of backup on constant Wi-Fi browsing, 13 hours of talk time, 9 Hours of 3G browsing, 12 hours of video playback or 59 hours of audio playback.
The Apple iPhone 6’s battery provides 11 hours of Wi-Fi surfing, 14 hours of 3G talk time, 10 hours of 3G browsing, 11 hours of video playback or 50 hours of audio playback.
The Galaxy Alpha takes this round due to superior overall backup.
