Battery: While the Galaxy Note 5 comes with fast charging and will go up to 50 per cent in under 30 minutes, Samsung has reduced the battery size of the latest Note from the previous versions. In the review, we noted that while the battery is still good, Note fans who talked about how the battery lasts a whole day, might be in for a disappointment.

Watch video review of S6 Edge+ 

Camera:  The camera like other top-end Samsung Galaxy Phones works very well and in good light, the detailing is perfect from the S6 Edge +. However the low-light performance is not all that great as some of the images we tried came out blurry.

Apple iPhone 6s Plus along with the smaller iPhone 6s.

Also multi-tasking has become easier and faster with iOS 9 as you now have the option of going back to the app that you opened an attachment from.

Camera: Apple’s new iPhone 6s Plus ensures that your pictures look natural and not over-saturated as it ends up being on many Android phones. The colour reproduction as well as eye for detail is second to none.

Plus Apple has introduced a new Live Photo feature, which is fun to use and brings your pictures to life,. Also the 4K recording feature on the iPhone 6s Plus works without any issues and the phone won’t heat up like other Android devices tend to do.

Battery: With the iPhone 6s Plus, Apple has given a dependable smartphone when it comes to battery life and it will easily last you a day.
