A classier and more sophisticated exterior design

Despite having a very utility-wise exterior design, the Xperia M5, just couldn’t keep up in terms of exterior design appeal. The iPhone 6s aluminum body is truly something to look at, and with this appeal factor in play, the Xperia M5 might lose a few of the market dominance, just by on design alone. The iPhone 6s sophisticated and classy exterior is something that iPhone has consistently lived up to, which is also the reason why the iPhone 6s has become a status symbol in society. The classy looking phone showcases elegance and sophistication, which creates a corresponding mindset to people that iPhone users are classy and elegant, as of their phone.

From our comparison review, it can be easily distinguished that the iPhone 6S 5MP shooter showcased a more detailed and accurate output than the Xperia M5. This was actually shocking to us, since the Xperia M5 actually has one of the best front – facing shooters in a smartphone. Though from the taken example, it seems that color blending was on point for the iPhone 6s, which lead to a more detail-wise output. One can say more about the Xperia M5’s front shooter, but truth be told, the iPhone 6s was triumphant on this one, without a shadow of a doubt.

A simpler and beginner-friendly system

The iOS is acclaimed for its simple and user-friendly OS and further its simplicity on the iPhone 6s, with Apple’s new iOS 9. The interface was simple and kind to its user, unlike some of the well-known devices in the market, which will take you a good amount of time to get used to. This advantage is obviously applicable to all Apple products, but we can’t simply ignore this. Apple’s user-friendly system and easy to understand interface, makes the iPhone 6s and other iProducts a first choice for new users, either for tablet, smartphone or laptops. People can say a lot of bad things about Apple, but they can’t deny the effectivity of this advantage and how it played a major role in getting Apple in the top of the smartphone food chain.
