Re: Samsung vs, Apple Smartphone Battle Continues
My wife has an iphone 6 work phone.  It is certainly faster and smoother than the 5, but I personally don't see anything ground breaking with it.  Evedently the glass screen is more fragile as her IT dept insisted she get a case for it imediately. 

I played with a Galaxy Note Edge the other day.  I have to say that edge technology is very cool and potencially useful.  Maybe Samsung will licence the edge technology to Apple. 

 

"German site Computer Base has done extensive tests with respected benchmarking software GeekBench, 3DMark and GFX Bench 3 and it makes for fascinating reading.

Both the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge use Samsung's own Exynos 7420 chipset and the headline result is its multi-core performance is 56% faster than the Apple A8 chipset inside the iPhone 6. Noticeably it is also 15% faster than the Snapdragon 810 chipset inside almost all the S6 and S6 rivals, including the HTC one M9"

Re: Samsung vs, Apple Smartphone Battle Continues
The iPhone and iPhone 6 are putting some serious pressure on Samsung. I wonder how many of Apple's customers would have switched to Android if Apple hadn't made the jump to larger devices.

Samsung vs, Apple Smartphone Battle Continues
Really interesting to learn that Apple has surpassed Samsung in smartphone sales, I guess this explains Samsung's S6.   To say the competition is fierce in this arena might be an understatement.
