iPhone 6 Plus and Samsung Galaxy Note 4

Today we got our first real look at the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus and unsurprisingly they brought all of the specs to the game. But how do they stack up against the giants of Android, BlackBerry, and Windows Phone? Although now that Apple has a 5.5-inch iPhone, perhaps calling those other phones giants isn't entirely accurate. But still, how do they compare? That's what we're here to find out.

So we've taken the latest and greatest that Android, BlackBerry, and Windows Phone have to offer and stacked it up against Apple's newest. There are, admittedly, still a few things we don't yet know, but this gives a good idea of how it all plays out. Of course, these comparisons are all dependent on the software that's running on the device — some are better at managing processors and power consumption than others.
