Final words

In last week's article each of the three phones easily found a niche for itself, this week things aren't as clear. For many businesses Software = Microsoft, but in truth Windows 10 isn't quite ready to topple Android. And the capturing camera will entice enthusiasts, but it's just not the recent 808 PureView.

The Apple iPhone 6s Plus price is rock steady for a simple reason - demand for it is just as steady. Apple is coming out of its shell a small bit, we acquire more RAM, ad blockers and higher resolution camera, which erodes the feature gap between iOS and Android.

The Samsung Galaxy Note5 is sailing stormy seas - first Samsung delays the wide launch, then it runs into problems with the redesigned S Pen, all the while current Note users ask for their microSD slot back. The feature-packed era has come to a close though, it's all about the experience now, never mind the specs behind the curtain.

The Apple iPhone 6s Plus is a social chameleon - it looks at home in the hands of a college student, a computer geek or a high-powered businessman. This is possible becautilize an iPhone isn't defined by its tech, QHD screens and octa-core processors is not what matters.

Instead attention to detail and quality of execution is what makes an iPhone. The classy screen is one of the best LCDs money can buy, the capturing camera is quite late to bumping both the photo and video resolution, but it got it correct the first time. The powerful chipset makes the 6s Plus the best pocket gaming machine and even the battery (cramped by the thin design) outlasts the average Android.

The "post-desktop era" fizzled out, it turned out that people are just excited with the desktops they have. Good for them, but that doesn't push recent Windows licenses out the gate. Continuum rethinks what a desktop is and moves from tower PCs to a smartphone and a hub.

Road warriors will surely acquire excited at the idea, at least until they remember this doesn't work unless you have a monitor and keyboard where you're going. Also, compatible apps are few and far apart (for now!). Actually, never mind Continuum, the Windows 10 app store is pretty tiny. Still, this is the future. Allegedly.

With Continuum unproven, it's the capturing camera that needs to sell the phone. PureView still has fans, but the competition hasn't been standing still. Where the Nokia 808 PureView was years ahead of the competition, the 950 XL was less convincing. You do acquire a remarkable classy screen with near-perfect colors to like your photos though, but not for too long as the battery life was a small disappointing.

The Samsung Galaxy Note5 can't camouflage as well as the iPhone. It used to be a power user phone, now it leans towards business people. Those are mere inclinations though, Samsung's tradition of throwing in the kitchen sink makes the Note5 versatile enough just about anything.

The classy screen is the best around and its S Pen buddy makes spur of the moment notes and sketches as easy as a notepad (unless you break it that is). The battery won't let you down and the chipset is remarkable at sustained performance. The capturing camera is a strong point too, with better hardware than the iPhone and better processing than the Lumia.

Inertia will probably haged you on the same platform as the phone you have now. But if you chose to venture out for something recent - and money is no object - one of these three phones is your likely destination.
