This time, size isn't the issue.

Apart from being released the same year, there are many similarities in the iPhone 6 Plus vs. the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge, and size is one of them. Listed are the differences in specs in this battle between the phablets.

Samsung and Apple, though both are among the leading brands in mobile technology, have not been pitted directly against each other until last year.

Then came iPhone 6 Plus and everything changed.

In an iPhone 6 Plus vs. Samsung Galaxy Note Edge battle, size will not make much of a difference as the iPhone 6 plus is built with 5.5 inch screen display, and Samsung Galaxy Note Edge with a 5.6 inch. So for consumers who are choosing between the iPhone 6 Plus vs. the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge, they will have to look closer in terms of technical specs of the phablets.
