On the one hand, the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 can go toe-to-toe with the iPhone 6S Plus in every area, with both phones offering a stylish design, lots of power, impressive cameras, great screens and speedy fingerprint scanners. On the other hand, although based on specs alone, the iPhone doesn't have the sharpest resolution, the highest capacity battery or the most amount of RAM, for those who are already familiar with iOS and its ecosystem will be pleased to know that the 6S Plus features a more powerful camera that captures moving "live photos," and a more advanced A9 chip processor.
