Samsung Galaxy S6 v iPhone 6 - have Samsung got it right?

Samsung Galaxy S6 v iPhone 6 - have Samsung got it right?
Samsung is set to take on Apple with its brand new offering: Samsung Galaxy 6. Already, many stores are inundated with pre-orders and it is being released in Australia tomorrow, 10th April. Although Apple are intending to release iPhone 7 sometime in September 2015 – it is the war of the 6’s that has everyone buzzing.
 
iPhone 6 and Galaxy 6 look similar in design, features and cost but there are some remarkable differences. Let’s take a look:
 

Wireless Charging and it's quick!

 
It’s an absolute pain when your battery loses juice and the day isn’t over yet! Samsung Galaxy S6 supports wireless charging, with a separate wireless charger. You simply place the phone onto the wireless charging pad AND Samsung promises the process will be quick, so you are not waiting all day for your phone to charge.
 

Bigger, higher screen resolution
