The Galaxy S6 is set to mount the biggest challenge to Apple’s iPhone 6 to date, so it’s only natural to want to compare the dimensions and proportions of the two. I found that a strangely difficult task with the press images provided from both manufacturers: Apple still hides the iPhone’s camera bulge in profile shots and Samsung’s front and back pictures are shot at slightly different sizes. So I have rescaled the press photos in accordance with the official specs, and used The Verge’s magical image slider to get an idea of the difference in size.
Interesting comparison images. It also highlights the utter idiocy of the kneejerk Pavlovian “it’s a copy!” reactions from the usual suspects. These two devices are nothing alike.
Uh, nothing alike?
They’re roughly the same size, same thickness, they both have a big screen and a button at the bottom. When you turn them on, you have a grid of icons (at least, that’s how most people set up android) and there’s similar apps.
Nothing alike? It’s basically the same thing.
