Duel, 02 Jul 2015You are wrong, i have said here many many times that S6 is actually first android device ever ... moreYou can't seriously say these things without actually having a grasp of the market...i work in a phoneshop, i know how iphones are perceived. If you think iphone 6 huge selling numbers are due to the phone itself, then you sincerely are wrong. The iphone 6 is a good phone, yet no one out there considers it to be better over the likes of S6, Note 4 or my personal fav LG G4...i have kids, 5, 6 year olds coming into this shop that shout angrily at their parents for even considering something other than an iPhone...what Apple have done is stunning, via the power of branding alone, they have created an empire...look at you, you are inadvertently advertising for them for free here and probably on many other boards. Soon enough they won't even have to invest in advertising, because legions of loyal fans will do the work for them. And i agree with the previous poster, being brand loyal is very detrimental. You are seriously missing out on some amazing technology out there. I have said it before, i own an iMac, a Lenovo tablet (soon to be changed to a Windows one), a Sony smartband, an LG phone and now intend to purchase a Samsung smartwatch (even though i find them quite useless)....it's fun mixing and testing all sort of technology...especially when it comes to phones...here, where i live, NFC for example is becoming a big thing and iphones would not let me thrive properly in my current environment...

If you buy iPhone 6 or S6 you are very likely going to be very happy with both of the device. Somehow it just looks like people prefer iPhone 6 over S6 which are many ways samekind on phones with same limitations etc. Samsung tried to do iPhone with iPhone price tag and feel, but it looks like people want the original one.
Maybe the android is problem for most and not the S6? maybe touchwiz is the biggest problem? hard to say.

Just feels better for watching videos, gaming and now photos. My iPhone is better for its simplicity its music and the design. Both phones don't disappoint so I don't understand why you Feel the need to have a moan about android devices. You are saying to Pear that he or she is boring and moans about Apple all the time yet you have been doing the same thing about android devices for months. I have seen your comments on s6 gsmarena sales on gsm news and you had made up story's about multi core processors a couple of weeks ago. talk about the pot calling the kettle. I just hope someone buys you a s6 aswel so you can have best of both worlds that way you can stop bitching and make positive comments rather than boring information about sale figures, biased opinions and lies you learn from YouTube. You clearly have good knowledge about iPhone and seem quite educated it's just a shame that you restrict your knowledge to just one product and not give other devices and software a look in. I will never be brand loyal and can't see why others would do so. After all it's your money and you don't owe these rich companies anything.
Pk, 01 Jul 2015Hi everyone .....this pranav here I just wanna tell u that iPhone sux iPhone 6 is much worse n... moreThat will make people here happy...if 3 year olds can use it, they will think it's some achievement...i agree though, it's a brill phone for under 6 year olds, the elderly or people with disabilities...but if you are fortunate enough to be ok and over 6 years of age, then iOS is a bit too boring...
Highly advance mobile.
With iPhone and Retina Macbook Pro. You can take on any computing needs the world throws at you, anytime, anywhere.
If someone/something trashes your iPhone or rMBP, just restore from your backup, and your good to go again.
I can't say any other brands or product that does this soo well.

haha, i was on this board a month ago and the same people say the same things day after day...there is one guy here Duel, must live a truly sad existence...in a way I admire Apple and the fact that it managed to make "humans" like Duel advertise for them for free...if you give him arguments of why some other phones are better, his comeback is "yes, but iphones is SELLING!"...in his eyes that is the most important thing...day in and day out he or another Anonymous guy are on this board defending iphones from people like me, who genuinly couldn't care less which phone one buys (i bet the reply to this will be "you say you don't care, but you are here, you love iphones, face it...you want one, you can't afford it"...this phone's fans really make me laugh...
Anyway, i have made the transition to an S6 as well and wooow, now that feels and acts like a premium high end phone...battery, camera, OS, screen, everything is top notch...never going back to iphones i am afraid to say...

Hi guys it's pranav here .......I just wanna tell u guys that iPhone is shit it sux n iPhone 6 is worse no shit has changed and m sure nothing will change in iPhone 7 too it is basically for lazy ppl ....my 3 yrs old sis can also use it n she has learned it on her own so I recommended every1not to buy this shit u will regret
Hi everyone .....this pranav here I just wanna tell u that iPhone sux iPhone 6 is much worse nothing has changed except of some small things it is a total wastage of money it's better if u buy iPhone 5s which is for 35000 now ,but I think is that iPhone is for lazy people it is soooo easy that even my 3 year old sister can use it.
Pear, 01 Jul 2015Yes mate, i love your made up numbers too...no one is saying that iphone 6 is not selling...it... moreiPhone 6 is not way behind technology. The pictures it produces from the 8 MP camera is more or less the same of quality as the ones produced from the 16 MP camera of the S6. I can't speak of its build quality because of the 'bendgate' fiasco last year, but it does feel premium to touch. Battery life is really amazing given the size of the battery; check out the battery life test in the review.

They run buttery smooth because of the near-stock Android. Their build quality and design are also great. The high-end Moto X is highly customisable with a broad range of material choices for the back cover.

and how that's exactly helping Samsung?
"Lower than expected Galaxy S6 sales fail to drag struggling Samsung back into profitability"
So why not even android users buy S6? With all user base with android S6 should be hit with huge numbers, so why that's not happening?
Pear, 01 Jul 2015Yes mate, i love your made up numbers too...no one is saying that iphone 6 is not selling...it... moreYou are repeating these same lines month after month here, what you are trying to prove? People like you are one big reason why iPhone is so popular, no matter if you like it or hate it you are addicted and you just have to talk about Apple and iPhone etc. all the time Everytime when someone say that he likes iPhone, you are giving those exact same lines how you don't like it because that and that and that, it feels like you are putting yourself over others and can't accept the fact that lot of people like iPhone. No other company have that kind of passion haters and fans, which just say that "you" are boring. And what made up numbers you mean? I didnt talk about any numbers

Motorola :D you are funny...
But they doesn't run iOS so what you said is actually lot bigger problem for android OEMs than what is it for Apple because Apple can stand out with iOS.
End of the day most of people are chosing iPhone 6.
In my country carriers released their monthly phone sales stats and iPhone 6 was number one in every carrier, very surprisingly S6 didn't even fit into top 10, but well it hasn't sell well anywhere so it's not that surprise, oh well it really is, i mean doesnt fit into top 10, crazy!
Currently everyone who have money want iPhone 6 because it clearly offers best overall product for consumers and the sales proves that q after q.
