Introduction

Today’s
flagships are easily flaunting 5-inch and up sized screens, but not
everyone believes that this is the perfect size. Lucky for them, we have
two new entrants in the space, the Samsung Galaxy Alpha and Apple iPhone 6,
which both feature 4.7-inch displays. What’s especially important here,
is that they’re treated to top-notch specs and offer excellent
all-around performances – so it makes perfect sense for us to pit them
against one another to see which one comes out on top.

Design

Visually stunning from every design facet, it’s refreshing to know that they’re extremely compact as well.
Honestly,
it’s a tough call on which design we like better – partly because
they’re both compact in size, comfortable to hold, lightweight, and
impressively premium in nature. Technically, it’s the iPhone 6 is a
smidgen taller, wider, thicker, and heavier, but it’s almost hardy
noticeable. Even though the Alpha is arguably the best designed phone
we’ve seen from Samsung, thanks in part to its solid construction and
metal trim bezel, its body is still comprised from mostly plastic. In
comparison, it’s a unibody aluminum casing with the iPhone 6.

Indeed,
we prefer the iPhone 6’s Touch ID finger print sensor over the one used
by the Alpha, but Sammy’s offering is packed with a couple of notable
amenities. Specifically, they include a sensor to measure our pulse
rate, and a removable battery.

Display

There are more pleasing qualities with the
iPhone 6’s display, especially knowing that the Alpha’s screen uses a
PenTile Matrix pixel arrangement.
Like we said, they both offer
4.7-inch sized screens, but they employ different resolutions and
display technologies. Although they’re not necessarily ground breaking
in comparison to what’s out there, the iPhone 6’s 4.7-inch 750 x 1334
Retina display bears a few more pleasing qualities that catch our
attention more – like it being slightly more detailed and brighter.
Well, the Alpha’s 4.7-inch 720 x 1280 Super AMOLED display is still
nice, especially when its color accuracy is improved over past AMOLED
screens, but it resorts to using a PenTile matrix pixel arrangement,
which doesn’t make it look as sharp as the iPhone 6’s display.
