Design and Display :
OnePlus One is one of the rare phones that don’t use plastic, or aluminum in their build. The device’s exterior is wrapped in magnesium, giving it premium look and feel. The phone looks elegant, and buttons are removed from the front display, to take full advantage of the 5.5 inches screen display. As we mentioned, both devices come with the same screen size. Additionally, the resolution and therefore pixel density is also the same, 1080×1920 pixels and density of 401ppi.
iPhone 6 Plus is one of the best on the Market. The elegant, classy and premium device is curvier than its predecessor. Even though it is a big device, Apple has managed to keep the ergonomic feel in the hand. And it seems that 5.5 inches screen size is the ideal size for phablets. The iPhone 6 proves just that, as typing on it is much easier than on larger/smaller devices. Thanks to the built in on-screen keyboard, users can write emails and messages more quickly than on any other phablet.
The 5.7in AMOLED display on the Note 4 may not be physically larger than its predecessor, but whereas the Note 3 had a Full HD resolution here Samsung has used a QHD, 2,560×1,440 panel. That means a pixel density of over 500ppi, matching that of theLG G3 and going far beyond the point it’s possible to see individual pixels with the naked eye.Combined with the black levels, vibrant colours and incredible contrast you get from an AMOLED panel, and the floating effect introduced by the 2.5D glass, and the results should be jaw-dropping in the flesh.

The OnePlus One features a highly powerful device, sporting a Snapdragon 801 quad core processor clocked at 2.5GHz and supported by 3 GB of RAM memory.
One of the most powerful chipset on the Market and the 64bit A8 chip found on the iPhone 6 Plus is one of the rare ones that can compete with such sheer power. There is no information yet of the pure specs of the A8 chip.

The OnePlus One comes with one of the most customizable Android OS ever. The device runs on 4.4 Android KitKat OS, but equipped with the CyanogenMod, it offers tons of customizations for users.
The iPhone 6 Plus runs on a strict and closed iOS 8. However, the features it offers are top of the class.
The Note 4 uses that power to run Android 4.4 Kitkat, with Samsung’s usual selection of Touchwiz UI improvements on top. Both phones have 3GB of RAM and include 32GB of onboard storage as standard.

The camera found on the OnePlus One is decent, with 13-MP rear sensor and dual LED flesh. However, it lacks Optical image stabilization. Luckily for its users, the CyanogenMod makes it up for it. It can capture snaps up to 4128×3096 pixels and record videos at 4K.
iPhone 6 Plus features the old reliable 8-MP sensor. The improvements here are internal, especially in some added features like the option for recording time lapse videos. The front facing camera of OnePlus One is designed for selfie lovers. Set at 5-MP, it is an excellent tool for everyday selfie pictures. The iPhone 6 Plus has only 1.2-MP front facing camera.
Samsung has taken the 16-megapixel camera sensor it used for the Galaxy S5 and added optical image stabilisation technology, meaning the Galaxy Note 4 should be able to shoot clearer, blur-free images even if your hands are shaking. It is paired with an LED flash, and will be able to capture 4K video as well as 16-megapixel still images.The front-facing camera has been upgraded too. It uses a 3.7-megapixel sensor, with a wide f/1.9 aperture for capturing 60% more light than the Note 3’s front-facing camera.

It still isn’t clear how much the Galaxy Note 4 will cost here in the UK – despite Samsung opening the books on pre-orders. With two distinct models available depending on the region, and the ultra-high end Galaxy Note Edge also launhing alongside it, we’re expecting the Note 4 to cost around £550-600 when it finally arrives. Online retailerClove is currently selling the 32GB Galaxy Note 4 for £575, although as there’s no official price from Samsung that might not be how much it costs elsewhere.
