Like previous “s” releases, the iPhone 6s Plus is defined by a single feature. This time around, that new feature is 3D Touch, best described as right-click for your iPhone. The new iPhone 6S Plus also features an upgraded 12-megapixel iSight camera with 4K recording and a powerful new A9 processor that's up to 70 percent faster than the A8.
The Galaxy Note 5 is Samsung’s latest iteration of their stylus-equipped smartphone, featuring an all new body that continues the design language Samsung established in the Galaxy S6, with other updates including the 16-megapixel camera and Exynos 7420 SoC. Naturally the Galaxy Note 5 is a larger handset than the Galaxy S6 by virtue of its larger 5.7-inch display, but if you've used a large-screened device in the past you know getting used to it doesn't take that long.
The phablet market isn't just the iPhone 6 Plus or the Galaxy Note line. While they get a ton of attention from the media and marketing departments, there are plenty of other options available. One such option is Huawei's Ascend Mate 7, a six-inch handset that is full of surprises and certainly worth more attention than it gets.
Samsung was on to something when they launched the original Galaxy Note back in 2011. The fourth-generation Galaxy Note is the same 5.7" size as its predecessor but packs a Quad HD display, a more premium and much requested part-metal construction, and an improved 16MP camera with optical image stabilization.
While virtually every other manufacturer began pumping out phones with increasingly larger screens in the wake of the Galaxy Note's success, Apple held off as long as it could while still selling millions of iPhone 5 and 5s handsets. Apple's response finally came in the form of the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus -- the latter of which represents its first foray into phablet territory.
