iPhone 6 Vs Galaxy S5 Review: Apple Gatecrashes Samsung

iPhone vs Galaxy is arguably the smartphone sector’s biggest rivalry, but in 2014 it has been taken to a new level. Apple finally enlarged the iPhone to compete with the Galaxy range head on and it has been a technological bloodbath. My iPhone 6 Plus vs Galaxy Note 4 review proved incredibly close and now it is time to pitch the two companies’ biggest sellers head-to-head.

Design – Style vs Practicality

In recent years Apple and Samsung have been criticised for doing little to overhaul the design of their ranges while the likes of HTC, LG and Motorola have significantly upped their game. 2014 was the year Apple finally made major changes while Samsung didn’t. So this should be an easy win – right? Not so fast.

While looks are always subjective, based purely on visuals, the iPhone 6 certainly easily has the edge. I’m not a big fan of the large top and bottom bezels that still reside on the iPhone 6, but its beautifully chamfered edges and matt aluminium unibody back and edges really stand out compared to the glossy metal edges on the Galaxy S5 and its controversial faux leather plastic back.

Galaxy S5 is not that much bigger than the iPhone 6
iPhone 6 – 138.1 x 67 x 6.9 mm (5.44 x 2.64 x 0.27 in) and 129 g (4.55 oz)
Galaxy S5 – 142 x 72.5 x 8.1 mm (5.59 x 2.85 x 0.32 in) and 145 g (5.11 oz)

But look more closely and it isn’t quite the cakewalk it might appear. The protruding camera on the back of the iPhone 6 clearly isn’t loved at Apple HQ as it was Photoshopped off official press shots and here the equally protruding, but centrally aligned Galaxy S5 camera looks more balanced.

Furthermore the Galaxy S5 remains the far more practical handset. Being smaller, the iPhone 6 doesn’t suffer from its slippery finish and lack of palm-friendly ergonomics as much as the iPhone 6 Plus but – despite being larger and thicker – the Galaxy S5’s grippy texture and more accentuated curves actually make it nicer and easier to hold.

iPhone 6 has the more premium finish
Then comes the Galaxy S5’s trump card: it is both water and dust resistant with IP67 certification. Most usefully this means the Galaxy S5 can be left in up to one metre of water for up to 30 minutes. An ugly plastic flap on the power port must be shut for this, but it remains a major feather in the cap for the S5. Not only is it great for protecting against water damage that would kill the iPhone 6, but it is remarkably liberating being able to answer a phone call or adjust your music in the shower!

Ultimately most people picking up both phones in a shop are likely to favour the iPhone 6, but when it comes to living with both long term it is an extremely close call.

How to avoid an annoying new glitch affecting the iPhone 6 Plus

There is an annoying new glitch affecting a handful of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus models, but this time around things are a bit different. While issues such as “Bendgate” and “Dyegate” are direct results of the design decisions Apple made during the development and production processes that yielded its next-generation iPhones, this new issue is easily avoidable and, more importantly, it’s not Apple’s fault.

Beginning a few years ago, accessory makers started producing some nifty new smartphone attachments that found away around a big limitation found in all phones. Because these devices are so small, there is only so much that handset makers can do with camera lenses and other related components.

With these nifty new accessories, however, users are able to add interchangeable lenses that can quickly be attached and removed thanks to a smart system involving magnets.

iPhone 6 Plus
With earlier iPhone models, this has been a great solution to push the boundaries of mobile photography. With the iPhone 6 Plus, however, a problem was introduced: Apparently, these magnetic camera lens systems are interfering with the phone’s optical image stabilization (OIS) system.

As noted by 9to5Mac, Apple recently updated a support document on its website that addresses various common iPhone camera issues and proposes solutions. Now, Apple has added a note about magnetic camera accessories to the page.

In the section about possible issues that may arise and cause photos captured by the iPhone to be blurry, the document now includes the following note:

avoid an annoying new glitch affecting the iPhone 6 Plus
Make sure that there’s nothing blocking the camera lens. If you’re using a case, try removing it. With iPhone 6 Plus, a metallic case or magnetic lens could interfere with optical image stabilization. If you have a metallic case or magnetic lens attachment, try taking a picture without it. Then compare the quality.

Fewer iPhone 6/6 Plus Buyers Shift From Android

Previous Phone of iPhone Buyers Within 30 Days of 2014 iPhone Launch
Android Owners Buy More Expensive iPhones

Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP), today released analysis of the results from its research on Apple, Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) after the launch of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus on September 19, 2014.

CIRP finds that a smaller percentage of iPhone buyers came from the Google Android platform after the September 2014 launch, relative to the percentage coming from Android after the September 2013 launch. After the most recent launch, 12 percent of iPhone buyers reported having an Android phone, compared to 23 percent after the September 2013 launch.

The vast majority of new iPhone buyers were already iPhone owners. Current iPhone owners accounted for over 80 percent of buyers after this launch, compared to less than 65 percent after the iPhone 5S and 5C launch in September 2013. Android owners accounted for a much smaller share of buyers immediately after this year's iPhone launch, and with smartphones so prevalent in the US, we also saw a smaller percentage of iPhone buyers moving from basic phones.

Android owners did buy more expensive iPhones, relative to the previous launch. At the September 2014 launch, 85 percent of iPhone buyers that previously owned an Android phone bought the new iPhone 6 or 6 Plus. In contrast, at the September 2013 launch, 52 percent of iPhone buyers that previously owned an Android phone bought the then-new iPhone 5S.

iPhone Model Bought by Android Owners In 30 Days After iPhone Launch
Former Android owners were attracted to the iPhone flagship models in greater proportion than last year's launch. The addition of the flagship premium iPhone 6 Plus accentuated that improvement. If we look at the price points of the iPhones that Android owners bought, this year 59 percent of them bought the $649 unsubsidized price iPhone 6 compared to only 52 percent who bought the new similarly priced iPhone 5S in the same period last year. In addition, another 26 percent of former Android owners bought the $749 unsubsidized price iPhone 6 Plus.

Historically, former Android owners gravitated to the lower priced iPhone models. Following this year's iPhone launch, only 15 percent of former Android owners bought the legacy 5S and 5C, compared to 47 percent for the lower priced 5C and 4S following the 2013 launch.

Android owners, many of whom already had experience with phones with larger screen phones, were drawn to the 5.5 inch iPhone 6 Plus. 31 percent of former Android owners who bought an iPhone opted for the 6 Plus compared to only 25 percent of existing iPhone owners who chose the larger format flagship phone.

CIRP bases its findings on its survey of 300 US Apple customers, surveyed from October 18-November 4, 2014, that purchased an iPhone in the 30 days following the September 19, 2014 launch of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus models. For additional information, please contact CIRP.

Accessories with magnets/metal might interfere w/ iPhone 6 Plus optical image stabilization, NFC on new iPhones

Accessories with magnets/metal might interfere w/ iPhone 6 Plus
Some users have noticed issues with the iPhone 6 Plus camera and NFC on both the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, but the cause of the problem— interference from magnets and metal components in accessories— isn’t well documented.

The cause of the issue has been noticed by a small number of users online, and Apple does briefly warn users to avoid accessories that use magnets or metal components in a support document quietly updated in the months following the launch of the new iPhones. But it’s not something most users are aware of when purchasing accessories that might end up causing problems for their new iPhone.

Behind the scenes Apple has started telling at least accessory makers in its MFi program to avoid using metal and magnets due to the issue with iPhone 6 Plus optical image stabilization, according to sources familiar with Apple’s MFi licensing program.

The magnetic interference can also cause problems with NFC performance on the new iPhones, and Apple has now started warning manufacturers in its MFi program with accessories supporting the devices to avoid magnets or metal. Apple previously had a warning for accessory makers about magnets or metal to avoid interference with the iPhone’s compass, a much less used feature than the camera or NFC features affected on the new phones.

Users first noticed the problem following the iPhone 6 Plus launch in September, as demonstrated in the video below, which shows an example of the camera issue with a magnetic iPhone lens accessory. At the time, however, users were unaware of the cause (below):

The best way to avoid the issue is to avoid accessories with magnets, and some companies even warn users of the potential for interference. Accessory maker Rokform, for example, now warns iPhone 6 and 6 Plus users that removing a magnetic component in its mountable case accessory might be necessary if interference occurs when utilizing NFC features.

Bottom line: Cases and camera accessories that don’t take Apple’s advice in avoiding magnets and metal might cause problems for both the iPhone 6 Plus camera and NFC features on both the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. Now you know.
