There is no doubt whatsoever that Apple’s iPhone 6 is a really good device. But the question that has been on many people’s mind is whether or not the iPhone 6 can be able to compete with some of Android’s best phones. This article will get to answer that question by comparing Android’s best phone, the LG G3 with Apple’s iPhone 6.
We start off by looking at the design of these two phones. One aspect about the iPhone 6 that got many talking is the fact that Apple finally made a device that had a bigger screen. The iPhone 6 has a 4.7 inch screen with a resolution of 1334*750 pixels. Despite Apple embracing the logic that bigger is better, the LG G3 still has a bigger screen than Apple’s new phone. The G3 features a 5.5-inch Quad HD screen. This big screen adds some class to the G3 given that it features a plastic rear panel that is not that impressive. In fact, this plastic rear panel gives the G3 a not so high-end look. One thing to also note when it comes to design is that the iPhone 6 is very thin and very light. To top it all off it has a metal like panel thus giving it that expensive and unique look. Compared to previous iPhone 6 models, the iPhone 6 has a camera that slightly protrudes from the back panel. Also, the power button of the iPhone 6 is now on the right hand side of the device thus making the possibility of you covering your camera with fingerprints less likely. On the other hand this has proven to be a problem with the LG G3 since the power button is below the camera on the back of the phone thus increasing the chances of the phone’s camera being covered with your fingerprints.
Productivity and Power
The A8 processor on Apple’s new phone is 25% faster than its predecessor, A7 processor, that is found on iPhone 5S. In addition, this processor has graphics that are 50% faster thus making the iPhone 6 handle high resolution graphics with ease. On paper, despite the fact that Apple is still the only company that features the 64-bit architecture on their phones, the LG G3 appears more superior than iPhone 6 especially when it comes to the RAM sector.
With the LG G3 you have an option of either going with a 2 or a 3 GB Ram while on the hand Apple’s iPhone 6 features a 1GB Ram. In addition, the LG G3 features a zippy 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 processor that is without a doubt one of the best in the market right now. As for the iPhone 6, Apple have bundled its A8 processor with an M8 co-processor that is capable of pairing of well with fitness application.
In addition, it also features a barometer. In terms of power, the LG G3 has a very large battery that makes it last longer with power as compared to iPhone 6. To add on to its large battery, the LG G3 also has an energy saving feature that will make your phone’s power last even longer. One huge drawback with the iPhone 6 is the fact that there is no slot for an SD card and as you guessed it the LG G3 has one.
Camera, Price and Availability
The iPhone 6 has a better â€œfacetime cameraâ€ as compared to its predecessor, iPhone 5. The â€œfacetime cameraâ€ in iPhone 6 has a 2.1 megapixel while its rear camera is 8.1 megapixel. One thing to note here is that cameras in iPhone 6 feature what is known as iSight. This basically helps you take better pictures thanks to the fact that it improves exposure control as well as face detection. Still on iPhone 6’s camera, you can now capture 60 fps for slower motion video and also produce full HD (1080) videos. The LG G3 on the other hand features a 13 megapixel sensor camera. To help it in identifying subjects much easier and as well as take good quality photos LG made use of its reputable Laser Focus technology and from the looks of things it worked like a charm. In terms of prices, the iPhone 6 will cost you around $200 and above while as for the G3 from LG you will pay $100.
If you are to compare the features of these two phones the LG G3 will edge out Apple’s iPhone 6. In addition the G3 also edges out the iPhone 6 when it comes to battery life, processing power as well as the resolution of the phone. There is hope for iPhone 6 though as it edges out the G3 when it comes to design, its metal like design gives it that high end look that the G3 doesn’t have.
