With Apple’s next-gen smartphone iPhone 6 all set to unveil next week, let’s stack it up against Samsung Galaxy Note 3 to see how it towers over the latter.


Sporting a 5.7-inch display, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 looks like a giant device as compared to Apple iPhone 6’s rumored 4-inch screen. This means the former will be heavier and thicker, hence less pocketable in contrast with the latter.


The iPhone 6 will run on apple’s upcoming iOS 7 operating system whereas the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will run Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and Samsung’s TouchWiz user interface. However, Apple is speculated to add some extra exciting features including improved camera choices and a fingerprint reader.


Apple will continually offer regular updates to its iOS 7, which users will enjoy till the firm comes out with iOS 11. However, Samsung has failed to show any such commitment to users.


Apple is expected to roll out major updates to its 13-megapixel camera in the iPhone 6 such as dual-LED flash with two different colors, white and yellow to let users capture great shots even in low light environments. iOS 7 is also rumored to bring 120fps and slow motion video capture, which will be seen in the iPhone 6.

Carrier choices

Sporting both 4G LTE networks and data plans, both the iPhone 6 and Galaxy Note 3 is expected to host major US carriers such as AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular and Verizon connectivity.
