The world giant mobile phone company Apple unveiled the iPhone 6S this week. Here's how it measures up to its rivals on paper. Of course, buying an Apple device is about more than just specs.

How the iPhone 6S compares to its rivals

Apple has lifted the lid on the iPhone 6S’ specs and there are improvements to be found across the board. With the smartphone market more competitive than ever with manufacturers trying to outdo each other at every turn, is it enough? Here is how the iPhone 6S compares to the competition.
The biggest change to the iPhone 6S is on the inside. It comes equipped with a new Apple A9 processor that Apple says offers 70% faster CPU performance and 90% faster GPU performance. It also comes equipped with 2GB RAM.
By comparison, we’re well aware that the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ packs a Quad-core 1.5 GHz Cortex-A53 & Quad-core 2.1 GHz Cortex-A57 backed up by 4GB RAM, while the recently announced Sony Xperia Z5 has a Quad-core 1.5 GHz Cortex-A53 & Quad-core 2 GHz Cortex-A57 CPU and 3GB RAM.
Both the Galaxy S6 Edge+ and Xperia Z5 offer larger displays with a higher pixel density than the iPhone 6S. The Galaxy S6 Edge+ features a 5.7-inch display with 518 ppi pixel density, while the Xperia Z5 clocks in at 5.2-inches and has a pixel density of 428 ppi. The iPhone 6S measures in at a reasonable 4.7-inches and has a pixel density of 326 ppi. But you can expect a high-quality viewing experience from all three of these devices.
Some of the iPhone 6S’ greatest improvements come in the form of the camera. The main camera has been bumped up to 12 megapixels and adds 4K video recording. Meanwhile, the front-facing camera has been upped to a 5 megapixel FaceTime HD camera.
While it’s welcome news that Apple has improved its camera offering, it seems to be playing catch up. Sony, known for its mobile imaging prowess, has equipped the Xperia Z5 with a 23 megapixel rear-facing camera and a 5.1 megapixel front-facing snapper. And Samsung offers a 16 megapixel rear-facing camera and a 5 megapixel front-facing camera on the Galaxy S6 Edge+.
Of course, Apple devices tend to be judged on more than just their specs on paper. There’s no doubting that Apple produces some of the finest looking handsets on the market. And it’s never been about raw power for iOS users. The general usage experience is typically swift and apps are guaranteed to work because app developers design to a particular spec.
Price could well play a role in tempting fans from one side to the other, and Apple tends to be pricier. But at the same time, many Apple fans are content to overlook this price difference because of the brand appeal and design.
Specs tend not to count for much to those who like iOS, find Siri useful, and couldn’t live without all the apps and interconnected systems that they have in place. If you want an iPhone, you’ll get an iPhone; it’s as simple as that really. The good news is that the iPhone 6S is unlikely to disappoint Apple fans.
