iPhone 6s Battery Issue: iPhone 6s Versus Samsung Galaxy S6
Which is better between Apple's iPhone 6s and Samsung's Galaxy S6? But before that, let's talk about the battery issue of the iPhone 6s.
Apple's iPhone 6s Battery Issue - Fortune
Apparently, many iPhone 6s users in China have been complaining about their device shutting down unexpectedly even if there was still battery life left. Upon hearing this, the Chinese consumer-protection agency, China Consumers Association, came to the defense of the users and called on to Apple to immediately address the situation. Good thing it was a "heating" or "exploding" problem.
In response, Apple conducted an investigation and found out that a number of iPhone 6s have a battery problem. To fix this issue, Apple has launched a program that will replace the batteries of the affected devices. However, this program is only available for the iPhone 6s that were bought between September and October 2015 and falls within a specific number range.
About the Replacement Program in China
Owners will be able to replace their batteries at one of Apple's retail stores or via an authorized service provider. Wireless carriers will not be participating in the replacement program. Also, Apple cautioned the users to fix any damages such as cracked screens before attempting to avail of the replacement program.
Now, let's talk about the specs between the Apple iPhone 6s and Samsung Galaxy S6 - GSM Arena:
Network. For the iPhone 6s networks, it's GSM, CDMA, HSPA, EVDO, and LTE. For the Galaxy S6, it's GSM, HSPA, and LTE. The iPhone 6s has more so it wins here.
Body. The iPhone 6s dimensions are 138.3 x 67.1 x 7.1 mm and 143 g for weight. For the Galaxy S6, it's 143.4 x 70.5 x 6.8 mm and 138 g for weight. Personally, I like bigger phones, because I have large fingers but I also like it if the phone is not heavy. The Galaxy S6 wins here.
Display. Type, size and resolution for the iPhone 6s is LED-backlit IPS LCD, capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors, 4.7 inches, 750 x 1334 pixels. For the Galaxy S6, Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors, 5.1 inches, 1440 x 2560 pixels. Again, I have large hands. With that being said, Galaxy S6 is better because it has a larger screen.
Platform. OS, Chipset, CPU and GPU, the iPhone 6s has iOS 9, upgradable to iOS 10.1, Apple A9, Dual-core 1.84 GHz Twister, and PowerVR GT7600.

I'm going to stick with the iPhone 6s here.
Memory. For the iPhone 6s, it's 16/32/64/128 GB and 2 GB RAM. The Galaxy S6, on the other hand, is 32/64/128 GB, 3 GB RAM. The Galaxy S6 wins here.

Features. The iPhone 6s has Fingerprint, Accelerometer, Gyro, Proximity, Compass, Barometer, and Siri. While the Galaxy S6 has Fingerprint, Accelerometer, Gyro, Proximity, Compass, Barometer, Heart rate, SpO2, and S-Voice. Personally, I like Siri and plus it's a cute name, so the iPhone 6s wins here.
Battery. For the iPhone 6s, it's 1715 mAh. For the Galaxy S6, it's 2550 mAh. Given that the iPhone 6s has battery issues, I will give this round to the Galaxy S6.
The score is 3 over 5 with Samsung Galaxy S6 as the winner. In case you're wondering about the price, I did not include it because the Galaxy S6 pricing had various prices depending on the country and I might make a mistake. However, price aside, I still believe that the Samsung Galaxy S6 is the one for me. How about you guys? I would like to know your thoughts about it.
