The fight is on between the Samsung Galaxy S6, Lumia 950 and the iPhone 6S, but which device is going to be left standing?
Up to now Microsoft haven’t enjoyed the same success as Samsung and Apple when it comes to selling smartphones. Now they are hoping to change that with the release of the Microsoft Lumia 950.
The display on the Microsoft Lumia 950 is 5.2 inches and this has a resolution of 2560 x 1440 and it is QHD. The display on the Samsung Galaxy S6 offers the same resolution but its slightly smaller at 5.1 inches. The display of the iPhone 6S is 4.7, so this is the smallest and it is 1334 x 750 resolution. It runs on iOS 9 and comes with 3D Touch. We have chosen the winner as the Microsoft Lumia 950 due to the fact that it offers the largest display.
The battery on the Microsoft Lumia 950 is bigger than the one on the iPhone 6S and the Samsung Galaxy S6. The iPhone 6S comes with a battery of 1715mAh, this is a drop over the previous battery size. Again the winner here is the Microsoft Lumia 950 thanks to it having the larger battery.
The Microsoft Lumia 950 offers the reversible USB Type C-Connector. While the iPhone S6 has the lightning connector of Apple and there is the standard micro USB port on the Samsung Galaxy S6. Not that many devices have the USB Type C-Connector at the moment. However, there isn’t a clear outright winner for the connection.
The Microsoft Lumia 950 may be connected up to a Microsoft Display Dock and owners can use it similar to the way they use the desktop PC. The iPhone 6S along with the Samsung Galaxy S6 cannot do this and so the winner is the Microsoft Lumia 950.
The Microsoft Lumia 950 is offered with 32GB of storage and owners can also extend it via SD card. There is 32GB in the Samsung Galaxy S6 but it lacks SD card. The iPhone 6S entry version is 16GB and no expansion. This means that the winner has to be the Microsoft Lumia 950.
The camera on the Microsoft Lumia 950 wins at it offers the most megapixels along with optical image stabilisation and it can take superb photos in low light. It wins above the Samsung Galaxy S6 camera at 16MP and the iPhone 6S at 12MP. There is also a camera of 5mp on all devices.
The price tag of the Microsoft Lumia 950 is $549 and it comes in with a $100 saving compared to the Apple iPhone 6S. The Samsung Galaxy S6 falls in the middle as the price tag is $579.99 if you choose the 32GB and so the winner has to be the Microsoft Lumia 950.
The Microsoft Lumia 950 has taken a lot of wins over the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the iPhone 6S, but which device would you choose?
