(why anonymous again you know who) l did have iPhone 5s for a while . I didn't buy it, becouse I considered my self above everage educated about technology, it was a present. Use it for a mount and some and sold it. People who gave the name for rooting the iPhone software did a boolseye - JAILBREAK, not to mention how boring it was. I bought Asus Zenfone 5 for 1/4 of the money and made huge present back.. And had money left.The Asus is atliast fast and smooth as IP5 with bigger nicer display 2 sim cards and 4 times cheaper.
To give you a representative example of what i wrote before, last week, we had 3 girls around 14 in our shop looking at the iphone 6 (99% of girls 12-18 are only interested in iphones) and i started showing them my LG G3 and they were genuinely incredibly impressed when they saw that they were able to take a selfie without touching the screen with my phone. One even said "why does the iphone not do that?" I replied "there are many cool things an iphone can't do". After approximately 20 seconds, one of the girls whispered to the other girls "Natalie and John both have it, they would laugh in our face if we don't get iphones". Those were the exact words, no exageration...
That shows exactly how a large majority of people buy these phones. Whoever thinks people buy them because they are great are sadly mistaken. Yes, there are maybe 20-30% of people who genuinly think the iphones are god's gift to technology. But the largest majority have been convinced by an extensive and smart marketing campaign that you are not complete if you don't have an iphone and they don't even bother researching or looking at other phones.
It's quite sad. That's all. But, oh well, it pays my rent x
With all due respect, it is so easy to notice the generic iphone and flagship android buyer.
The iphone buyer is usually attracted to shiny stuff and doesn't really care about innovation or progress. They rather have buy into consumerism and are deceivingly happy when they pay $600 for a $100 phone, because they managed to form a concentric circle where they are all patting each other on the back because they have a personality-devoid and relatively functional device that is highly appreciated for its social stance, rather than for quality or technological innovation.
The flagship Android buyer is usually more educated and introspective. He/she tends to question what they want from a smartphone, how a device like this can help their existence and whether it's worth paying over $500 or over for it. He/she want to buy because they like putting a little of their own personality in their phone and they prefer the freedom of apps/internet/software permissibility.
This is no way meant to be insulting. I invite anybody to work in a phoneshop for a week and you will notice these trends. Of course it is not without exceptions. You do get the opposite for both groups, but a large majority can be described as above.
(I hope gsmarena won't take my post down, because they deem the term "uneducated" as insulting...nothing wrong or demeaning about being non-educated)

I have iPhone 6 and Meizu Mx4.... I don't know how to choose.. So I used both, and they were superb great this far, both them are no laggy and problem. For taking picture I use Mx4 cause the color saturation are amazing, for video record I used iphone 6. Iphone 6 are great just got a little problem with hardware when the first time I buy it, but after it go repaired everything went normal :)
slowadopter1, 03 Mar 20151GB RAM is not understandable. Then why it is so expensive?because it's about the brand?? hahaha, low specs never mind, the brand is a marketing strategy. :) Also, how much does a phone needs to operate smoothly? I guess, the higher the RAM, the more battery it consumes? One phone or the other will win some, lose some? Android/IOS users, all happy with their own devices/choices u make. Each phone is good in its own way, not so good in another.
