I wouldn't really say so, they have very different businesses. Sony and Nintendo are both hardware manufacturers. While Apple also manufactures hardware, Microsoft doesn't. Microsoft creates operating systems and software for PCs.

Microsoft also manufactures hardware. Is just best known for their OS.

The premise of this thread is pretty amusing when you consider the fact that Sony was one of Steve Jobs' biggest inspirations.

When it comes to the PlayStation, is obvious Sony's biggest inspiration was Nintendo. And Microsoft nowadays, given how much the PS4 (and 3) borrow from the original Xbox (and 360).

How can a person become such a blind follower of a company, don't you understand that these companies only want your money, make their shareholders even richer? Some of the responses in this thread really makes me question people's intelligence.

Oh you are right. The Note 5 is actually more powerful than the S6 which already blew the Iphone 6S plus out of the water. Wow! FYI the Note 5 is only 3 months younger than the S6.

Note 5: 819$

Iphone 6s plus: 905$

I was looking at looking at the 32GB model of the Note 5 first, didn't think about that. But the 32GB one is still ~100 dollars cheaper and much much more powerful

Like I said in my comment (If you read it), after you fator in a 4K screen which is about 500$, you still end up paying 1000$ less.

And sure, I can give you somethings outperforming macbook pros too:

Your ridiculous. I already prooved by several videos (speed test) and benchmark that the iPhone 6s is stronger then both the note 5 and galaxy s6, even in multicore socre (by 8 vs 2 cores) but your still claiming the samsung phones would be superior? Whats wrong with you? Are you able to READ?

 

PS: the only similar 5k screen at the moment is the Dell Ultrasharp 27 which alone is 2200 bucks. You probl dont even know the differences between 4k and 5k though.

 

PPS: "Outperforming" by using plastic case, an SSHD and not even an SSD, an Full HD LED Display (vs Retina IPS display) and just 8 GB Ram? Dude...just lol. The cheapest macbook pro (uses a HDD as well) is even cheaper btw.

You are really really unedcuated in terms of computer and mobile hardware. Just stop talking about it. Your just saying nonesense over and over again, still very amusing to read your comments :D

No, speed tests don't tell you have powerful the hardware is. And you're saying I'm the one talking nonsense? The XBO is faster than the PS4 in speed tests, but that's not because it's more powerful. It has to do with software. Not hardware. The Galaxy S6 is factually more powerful than and Iphone 6S plus. It simply has more powerful hardware. The Iphone 6s plus can outperform it in speed tests because of software optimization. Not because it's more powerful. Keep on denying facts though, it's amusing that you think I am the ridiculous one though.

 

The difference in image quality between a 4K and a 5K screen is negligable. And I do know what 4K and 5K means. What is up with the insults?

 

The laptop has a better CPU, a waaaaaay better GPU and just as much RAM as most Macbook Pros. SSHD vs SSD has little to do with actual hardware power, and wether the PC is made with plastic or metal has nothing to do with hardware power. Retina IPS display vs LED display, again, doesn't matter for performance.

 

It's pretty fun how you call me an Android fanboy but I'm still writing this reply from my Iphone 5s. And once again, it's ironic that you call me uneducated in terms of computer/mobile hardware, yet you have shown extremely limited knowledge on the subject yourself.

So which applications can show the more powerful hardware  of the S6? Which demanding games or applications run smoother on an Galaxy S6 than on an iPhone 6 or 6S?

A lot of cherry picking in the history of home consoles and home computers / affordable computers.

You could also picture Nintendo as opportunist... they profited of the screwups of the American console manufacturers. They took what Magnavox, Atari and others had pioneered, tweaked it and threw a healthy dose of capitalism at it. The result was monumental success.

Magnafox and Atari drove themselfs into the ground. Nintendo saved the gaming industry



Joke thread of the month.

I'm sure there are tons of apps. The speedtest that user linked was one that didn't benchmark apps, just the OS, and thus I pulled a comparison between the PS4 and the XBO, where the PS4 is more powerful, but the XBO still has a faster OS. The problem with using specific apps to benchmark hardware, especially when the hardware doesn't have the same OS is that some apps/games will be better optimized for one platform, and vice versa. Benchmark tests put the S6 above the Iphone 6S plus in most aspects though, which corresponds with what we know about their actual hardware.
