Samsung Galaxy Note 2 & S3 vs iPhone 6 Visualized

By  | 

When the first Samsung Galaxy Note came out, many said it’d never take off because of its size, but it proved them wrong and set a precedent for large smartphone screens. We’re going to give you a mock-up comparison of the iPhone 5, the Samsung Galaxy S3, the iPhone 6 (known as the Math to some) and the Galaxy Note 2.

Phablets are becoming a popular hybrid device for people who don’t want to carry a phone and a tablet around. There’s been talk of an iPhone 6 with a 4.8” display, but this was then declared to be a misinterpretation for the device that will become the iPhone Math.

Displays have been increasing in size for a while, but Apple has kept its screens small – the iPhone 5 is the biggest, and it’s a mere 4”. Apple said this was so that the iPhone 5 remained easy to hold in one hand and was still accessible to apps, but Apple fans were disappointed.

People want big screens, as people are using their devices for just about everything now – games, films, music and even the odd call!

The Galaxy Note 2’s Multi-View has caused quite a stir – it’s now on the Galaxy S3 – it means that two apps can run simultaneously. This will not go well on a 4” screen.

5” screens are where it’s at, with many devices already out, and more in the pipeline. There’s the Sony Xperia Z and the HTC Droid DNA. Compare the Galaxy S3 to the iPhone 5, and you’ll really see the difference in displays, especially when you hold them side-by-side.

There are those who think that the 4” screen is ideal, and don’t want a bigger display. Apple does, however, need to do something to keep up with the competition from Android. Have a look below.
