Last year, two sterling smartphones came out: Apple’s iPhone 6s and Sony’s Xperia Z5. We’re going to go over their design, cameras, specs and more to help you pick out a champ.

Design and display

Sony has been using the OmniBalance design ever since the Xperia Z came out in 2013. Apple has also been constantly improving the design of the iPhone line.

Sony’s device rocks a black chassis and has the fingerprint sensor addition placed on its sideways power knobs. The Z5 also has a glass back and it has the IP65 and IP68 certificate, which makes it water and dustproof. The iPhone S6 packs a stronger aluminium frame and the screen glass has also been fortified.

Sony Xperia Z5 comes with a 1,080×1,920-resolution IPS display while the iPhone 6s has a 750×1,334-resolution display.

Camera and battery

The iPhone 6s delivers a 12 MP back end camera and 5 MP FFC one.  With the iPhone 6s, one has the Live Photos option. The Sony Xperia Z5 on the other hand, packs a huge 23 MP Exmor RS rear camera and it has its SteadyShot OIS as well as the hybrid autofocus.

Battery wise, the iPhone 6s has a 1,715mAh battery incorporated whereas the Xperia Z5 packs a 2,900mAh battery. The iPhone’s battery should last a whole day maybe a day and half, if you use it with moderation while the Xperia Z5’s battery lasts 2 days.


The iPhone 6s has the 3D Touch function and with it you can enable different options depending on the pressure you apply to the screen. The Sony Xperia Z5 has a microSD slot and the fingerprint scanner. The latter device offers 32GB of storage, which can be expanded.

Final thoughts

As far as costs, the Sony Xperia Z5 retails for £521, while the iPhone is priced at £539. In short, if you want a premium camera and battery, the Xpria Z5 is worth the purchase, however the iPhone 6s does deliver a snazzy design, great features and of course the 3D Touch function, which is undeniably amazing.
