Last week, Korean electronics behemoth Samsung unveiled Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ at its Unpacked event. While the Galaxy S6 Edge+ is just an upsized version of the Galaxy S6 Edge, the Note 5 is the successor to last year’s Galaxy Note 4. Last year, the Note 4 and Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus shared the crown for the best smartphone camera.

Galaxy Note 5 vs. iPhone 6 Plus: Clash Of Two Best Camera Phones

Galaxy Note 5 pitted against Apple’s best phone

This time, Samsung has already launched the Galaxy Note 5, while Apple’s next-gen iPhone 6S and 6S Plus are about a month away. So, the current flagship iPhone 6 Plus is the best camera phone Apple has to offer. Business Insider pitted Galaxy Note 5 against the iPhone 6 Plus to assess which phone has a better camera. The comparison isn’t scientific, but it shows how the two phones perform in the real world.

The iPhone 6 Plus comes with an 8-megapixel camera sensor, while the Note 5 packs a 16MP main camera. But megapixel is just one of the many factors involved in capturing a compelling image. To conduct the test, folks at Business Insider left each phone’s camera to its auto settings. They took images at the same time, in the same place, and under the same circumstances.

Take a look at the photos:

Note 5 vs. iPhone 6 Plus: conclusion

You can see in the first two images that the photo captured by Apple’s phone is sharp and its color is true to the scene. But the colors are more vibrant in the photos taken by the Note 5. In low-light conditions, the iPhone 6 Plus captured a noisy image with a green filter, but you can clearly see the subject’s face. The low-light photo taken with the Note 5 is so blurry that could barely make out the subject’s face.

Overall, the Note 5 takes bolder colors, but sometimes the photos are too bright. The iPhone 6 Plus managed to beat Samsung’s latest device in low-light conditions. Business Insider concludes that the iPhone 6 Plus is better in lighting and color accuracy. But if you want images with more vibrant colors, you should check out the Galaxy Note 5.
