Now that iPhone 6s has hit the markets, it’s time to pit the newest Apple wonder against the best of the smartphone industry. Apple has never failed to woo its users with its fluidity and smoothness in the past. One wonders if it’s likely to happen now as well in the face of tough competition from equally snazzy and up to date tech names like Samsung, Sony, LG and HTC.Specs LG G4 Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Samsung S6 Edge+ HTC One M9 Sony Experia Premium Z5 iPhone 6s Display 5.5-inch Quad HD LCD 5.66 inch Quad HD 5.7 inches 5.5 inch HD 5.5 inch 4K 4.7 Retina HD display with 3D Touch, LED-backlit widescreen Resolution 2560×1440 pixels resolution 1440 x 2560 pixels [...]
The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 was released on the 13th of August in New York and caused quite a commotion with its S-Pen and other features. Touted as one of Samsung’s high-end phones which could give the iPhone some competition, the price of this phablet has been announced in India at Rs.53,900 .

According to a latest report, the device will be a supporting microSD card option. The report says the memory card slot will share the same slot as the second SIM slot. For double SIM users, this might present itself as a problem. Basically, one of the Micro-SIM card slots doubles as the MicroSD card extension slot. So, you can either use the expandability [...]
