Phablet fans, rejoice! The Galaxy Note 5 finally arrived on Thursday, and as we noted in our hands-on preview, it’s easily the best Android phablet on the market. That said, plenty of Android fans were tempted by the iPhone 6 Plus last year, and with the iPhone 6s Plus presumably a month away from release, some fans might be waiting to see what Apple has to offer.

DON’T MISS: 5 killer Galaxy Note 5 features you won’t find in any iPhone

So while we wait, why not compare the Galaxy Note 5 and the iPhone 6 Plus in detail? In the chart below, you can see a list of the specifications of each device, elucidating the major hardware upgrades that Samsung has implemented over the past year.

The Note 5 features four times the RAM, twice the megapixels on its rear-facing camera, a notably better pixel density on the display and even a slightly larger battery capacity than the iPhone 6 Plus. If you’re in the market for a powerful smartphone, there’s no question that you should give Samsung’s new offering some serious consideration.

It’s also worth nothing that all signs are pointing to the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus being incremental updates over last year’s models. If you weren’t thrilled with the 6 Plus, we haven’t seen much evidence that the 6s Plus would change your mind.
