Unless you’ve been living under a rock (or consciously skip past any Apple related news), you’d know that today is iPhone Launch Day. With the Apple iPhone 6S and 6S Plus officially hitting stores today, you’ll be up to your ears in reviews, comparisons, and drop tests. The internet is full of them right now. Given that Apple made a big deal about the new camera tech inside the iPhone 6S (it now comes with a higher resolution 12MP camera among other improvements), sites are putting Apple’s claims to the test with head-to-head battles against some of Android’s greatest.
In years past, this would have ended in a massacre, with the iPhone always winning top honors. But things have changed this year. Android OEMs have finally stepped up (with the exception of HTC, of course), creating a blend of camera software and hardware working together to deliver superior results than even Apple’s long standing iPhone line. With the new iPhone, you’re probably wondering if Apple was finally able to reclaim their crown, or will it continue fall short when compared against heavyweights like the Samsung Galaxy S6 and LG G4? In The Verge’s latest video, they took all 3 of these aforementioned phones out on the town, comparing photo quality in a dark room and discussing the results.
We know, typically The Verge’s blatant Apple bias creeps into reviews like this, but this one seemed a little more objective than most (despite them calling it a tie when it seemed to us the Galaxy S6 was the clear winner in most cases). Be all that as it may, their final ruling was that all of them are great in their own respects, it just comes down to personal preference on which output you prefer. Maybe they just didn’t want to believe that their $750 investment didn’t quite live up to Apple’s promises. We’ll let you decide for yourself in the video down below.
