Samsung Galaxy S6 vs Motorola DROID MAXX 2
Samsung Galaxy S6
The Samsung Galaxy S6 presents a radical redesign into the flagship Galaxy S line. With a renewed focus on premium looks and cutting edge specs, the Galaxy S6 sports a Quad HD display, an improved 16MP camera, and – finally – super-fast UFS 2.0 based internal storage starting at 32 GB up to 128 GB. The Galaxy S6 runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop with the company’s proprietary TouchWiz skin on top, and it will be the first 64-bit Samsung flagship, coming outfitted with a homemade octa-core chip.
Motorola DROID MAXX 2
The Motorola Droid MAXX 2 sports a 64-bit, 1.7 GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 – a midrange SoC, which we’ve found to be quite adequate in our experience. The phone is equipped with 2 GB of RAM and comes with 16 GB of internal storage, expandable via microSD of up to 128 GB. The display has a 5.5” diagonal with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels. The battery that keeps the lights on has an impressive capacity of 3,630 mAh and Motorola promises up to 48 hours of “mixed usage”, and turbo charging, which should provide 8 hours of use for 15 minutes of charge time. The main camera rocks a 21 MP sensor with F2.0 aperture and a dual-tone LED flash, while the frontal cam has a 5 MP sensor. Motorola’s UI philosophy is along the lines of “the lighter – the better”. The midranger comes with Android 5.1.1 installed out-of-the-box and offers it in its vanilla form.
