There a lot of cheap midrange phone around, which is much cheaper, with up to 3 year old spec, which is perfectly fine among average user.
It is not necessary to own an iPhone, which claim to be much more superior than low end phone.
Dan, 14 Sep 2014I've worked in the mobile phone industry for 7 years now and I can tell you it's not all about... moreYou are right gentleman. I have an iPhone that is almost five years old iPhone 4. Now upgraded to iOS 7.0.2 still runs all the apps I had and downloaded. Samsung hangs terribly just after weeks if you use highly. Hyundais and Kia cars can never match the reliability of a BMW even if one puts more specks in those cars compared to BMW. I have seen even in Korea all premium stores flaunt iPhones when it comes to mobiles,
The real loser here probably are Windows Phone and Black Berry Phone?
When you buy galaxy phone there is smartphone in your hand,but when you buy iPhone there is Apple Company with its services in your hand.This is why people perfer iPhone instead of Galaxy phones.
Interesting to see fanboy flaming each other.
For me, nothing is perfect in this world.
There are trade off on every device.
I must say, Apple is the real innovator of smartphone, but the move it goes seems making people feel it is growing much slower than their rival, Android counterpart.
Android camp, on the other hand, try increase everything on hardware spec and software feature, and offer low end to midrange product, try to make Apple product as an overprice kit, and less feature pack than it‘s rival.
This is the result of competition, where each one try to triump another, to make the competition stiff.
As a conclusion, nothing wrong if we ever own these device, be it iPhone or Android phone, but the question is, if those are must have gadget in our life? And do we actually have to upgrade those every year?
I still miss the old day where phone are just made for communication, small and convenient to bring along. I can use for up to 5 years, as long it doens‘t spoiled.
I prefer the previous (iphone5s) Now it looked like some android phone? (Large screens)
Having used a few android phones going really slow after only 1 & 1/2 years but holding on to it for 2 & 1/2 years. I think that I will hopefully be happy using this. I have seen an iphone 4 run quite strong even after many apps being installed, compared to Xperia S which did not have many apps installed start slowing down. So if this years iphones are as good as before this will be definitely worth the price.
For anyone wondering Android phones are also the similar price to Iphones, so I will not really say much in comparison to the price.
I am kind of a "S" person you might notice my name starts with S so i am gonna wait for 6S cause s edition is always the best
Raj, 14 Sep 2014just Remove the logo of apple and than see the sale of iphone..Ya agree! Remove the logo. see how the sales? And isn't the design looks similar to HTC???
What? Front camera 1.2MP? CPU 1.4GHz? For how many yrs later then Apple having NFC? Spped - Cat4? :(
i like the phone camera if we talking about FPS the much better one it is and the graphic consist hexa core ...... thats amazing
I've worked in the mobile phone industry for 7 years now and I can tell you it's not all about the specs as most android / Samsung / Apple haters will have you falsely believe. That group of people mocked iPhones for having smaller screens, now they mock them for having larger screens. Work that one out. They now mock them for still only having an 8mp camera (more false spec belief) when in actual fact the upgrade Apple has made to other parts of the camera actually improves it beyond most of the larger megapixel phone cameras. Apple's build quality is vastly superior to every phone out there - only the HTC One / One M8 even comes close. No SD card slot? Good. One less way to get viruses on your handset. No change in icon layout? Good. It doesn't need changing. Why do you think others copied the layout in the first place? It works and it works well. Samsung / Android fans constantly saying 'it's just a bigger version of the previous iPhone' based on the fact that the layout is the same? See my previous point. User interface and user experience? No contest. TKO by Apple with their OWN operating system. More comments on posts about iPhones on this website than any other handset? Most of them by jealous Samsung / Android fans mindlessly bashing Apple. Most mocked handset? Yes. Because we all know what mockery stems from...
Raj, 14 Sep 2014just Remove the logo of apple and than see the sale of iphone..well said

Asyraf777, 14 Sep 2014I admit that samsung is laggy piece of crap..but i dont like apple either..the best smartphone... moreI've the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 & was ok till software updates came through, took A year for samsung to update to KitKat 4.4.2 & not all Android phones get updated the same time like Apple do, been using Apple iPad 4 & iPod 5th genararation & find Apple far superior to Android, yes Android too complicated & clunky & Laggy & that's why I'm finally converting to Apple with making iPhone 6 plus my first apple phone, Samsung have flooded the market with sub quality phones trying to steal apples crown and never will do!!!.
I admit that samsung is laggy piece of crap..but i dont like apple either..the best smartphone brand for me is HTC LG n Sony..their phones r the best..good quality n awesome specs with reasonable price..not like crappy overpriced iphone..currently im using LG G Pro 2..n believe me its one of the best phone ive ever used so far..its just perfect..
