Apple: iPhone 6
The famous iPhone has been a favorite among many cell phone users, and for good reason. Apple has always been very good at designing their products with a high ease-of-use for the consumer. Why should something that does complex things be difficult to use?
With the release of the iPhone 6, users will find that the phone has a slightly larger screen than past models. Containing a much-needed software update and a slight physical re-design, the iPhone 6 has a beautiful display and fast performance. The battery life of the iPhone 6 is not as long lasting as the iPhone 6 Plus. However, many find the iPhone 6 Plus to be an uncomfortable single-handed phone because of it’s bigger size. Though Apple didn’t release the perfect smartphone but they didn’t release something pointless either. With the new iPhone 6 Plus’s size comes the ability to physically compete among other smartphones.
Samsung: Galaxy S 5
Samsung’s Galaxy series has taken the Android market by storm. Between The smartphones themselves and the Galaxy Note tablets, Samsung has certainly become a favorite in the cell phone industry. With the Galaxy S 5 being the newest addition to the Samsung Galaxy family, this phone contains reasonable upgrades to the design, camera and software.
The Galaxy S 5 is certainly a solid upgrade from its predecessor, The Galaxy S 4. Unfortunately, there have been a couple of new features introduced that, so far, seem to fair as mediocre additions to the Galaxy series, namely, the fingerprint scanner and heart rate monitor. With the s 5’s re-design, not much has changed either. However, the phone has taken a more “square” like appearance and is said to be more comfortable to hold. Regardless of any small features provided by the Galaxy S 5 that are mediocre or unfavorable among Android consumers, Samsung certainly knows how to design a quality phone to dominate the Android market by a wide margin.
