iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s vs Galaxy S6 Edge+: Camera Shootout

If you ask that which smartphone in the market takes the best pictures several years ago, needless to say, iPhone would be the most popular answer. But nowadays, things have been changed. Smartphones in the market are packed full of advanced and seriously impressive technology. Take some Android flagship devices as an example; they have made great improvement in camera performance which offers more available choice for customers. Today we’re getting into the ultimate camera battle among iPhone 6, iPhone 6s and Samsung’s S6 Edge Plus. Which one will take the throne as 2015’s best smartphone camera? Let’s run down and find out…


Apple iPhone 6

  • Camera: 8MP rear, 1.2MP front
  • Video: 1080p at 60fps, 720p at 240fps

Apple iPhone 6s

  • Camera: 12MP rear, 5MP front
  • Video: 4K at 30fps, 1080p at 30 or 60fps
  • Live Photos

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus

  • Camera: 16MP rear, 5MP front
  • Video: 4K videos recording

In terms of major differences among the above three devices, camera quality is night and day judging by the specs above. Actually, there are not many differences in the shooting interface between iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s. Compared with iPhone 6, the iPhone 6s with a 12 MP rear camera and 5 MP front camera, is capable of shooting 4K resolution videos at 30 frames-per-second.

There is no doubt that the iPhone 6s wins when it comes to resolution and image quality. What about the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus then? Just like with its sister the Galaxy S6 and Note 5, the S6 Edge Plus is up to a 16-megapixel sensor with OIS and 4K videos, not to mention live YouTube broadcasting at 1080p from anywhere with just a tap. It is especially helpful if you’re prone to taking shaky-photos, while trying to grasp the somewhat-large device with one hand. Anyway, enough taking about the cameras, let’s put them to the test.

In this testing, we can see that the colors seemed more accurate on the S6 image than the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s. Daylight photos from the S6 just look better overall.

Clearly, all of these cameras are great to have. And the iPhone 6s is a better version of the iPhone 6-it is an update after all. But I personally prefer the images from Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus. However, if you are in a low light setting, the iPhone 6s would be good camera to have around. So, which camera do you like best? Let us know with a comment below.
