What’s so great about the iPhone 6? Al Sacco at Network World compares Apple’s new phone to the Samsung Galaxy S6 and highlights four standout iPhone 6 features.
- Touch ID on the iPhone 6 lets you make purchases, unlock Google Drive, and authenticate yourself to use services (such as a checking account), all with one touch. Samsung’s Touch ID only unlocks your phone.
- Apple’s device instantly installs software updates, while Android devices like the Galaxy S6 take longer.
- The iPhone 6 works with any other Apple devices you own, integrating services such as answering phone calls and SMS messages. Samsung’s phone won’t adapt as smoothly.
- Light-up lock-screen functionality on the iPhone 6, lacking on the Galaxy S6, allows you to see relevant notifications without touching your phone.
