Duel, 26 Sep 2015"20% profit should be enough."
Clearly you doesn't know anything about business or running ... moreThe price of a smartphone like iphone 6s and samsung s6 really cost just around $200-$300. And of course you need to add the packaging, advertising, research and development, and tons of other aspects that Samsung and Apple recoup by keeping that price tag as high as possible.
Could Samsung and Apple price more aggressively? Absolutely. But considering their reputation, they really have no real need to, as they have a highly established reputation and no shortage of consumers lining up to pick up what they have to offer. But hey, in the end they really ripping us off. They could put lower price in the first place but the know there are many people wanting their phone so they put it as high as possible.
They sell their $200-$300 phone for $600-$700. That 70% profit is crazy. The odd thing is company like Samsung don't even bother when they have to lower the price a few months later because GS6 was originally supposed to be price as low as $500. Iphone too for that matter.
It's funny how OPO is still better in every respect, while being more than a year old now and costing only a fraction.

Lolwut? You are seriously misinformed. Compare these scores yourself, mate...
Oh, and the Apple A9 is also capable of editing 4k videos. The more you know!
"What matters is the OS..."
Yeah, I do agree with that. Many people might choose Android because they like to tinker and tweak their devices, while some choose iOS because it's simple and fluid. And it's fine that way!
Blackberry Passport user posting here! Warning: my opinions might hurt the feelings of certain fanboys, so I you are one of them this is your last chance to skip this reply.
I am not a fanboy. I don't worship anyone. But it's straightforward that you have no clue about how business works. In theory you are right. But there are many variables you didn't consider: R&D costs, distribution channels, advertising, services costs(warranty, defective units, spare parts, various stores, etc) and so on. Why do they make it so cheap? Because they only produce 2 models :normal and plus - this translates in a highly optimised process and cost reduction (unlike samsung which has 5546586585555 model of phones).
Also not that the strength of a chain equals with the strength of weak link.
Have a nice day :)

Clearly you doesn't know anything about business or running business. 20% doesn't make any sense. if you look the profits of galaxy s6 note 5 etc. They are almost same that iPhone has.
Sure i agree with you 20% profit should be enough for every companies and i want to buy 70" tv with third of the current prices, but it just doesn't happen. Companies need to make money to run business.

Also, on a human level, it's getting to the stage where the 1-2 milliseconds speed difference don't really matter. What matters is the OS, something at which Apple is good for a certain category (older people, children, people who prefer branding over technology), whereas flagship Android is more for those with personality and enjoyment for technology and flexibility, etc.
Pear, 26 Sep 2015You seriously need to stop campaigning and pick and choose the videos that suit your agenda...... moreI choose the videos which i find and the results are always same, i can paste like 5 more videos with same results, iPhone 6s is superior in speed, the bigger the app the better iPhone 6s is doing compared to those android devices because 6s superior chip

In both videos the apparent under dogs win. So like pear said stop hand picking videos.
Pear, 25 Sep 2015The only area where iOS excells over flagship Android is security. I have to give it to Apple ... moreHahahahah you just delivered the biggest insult/joke to apple users i've seen here and no one caught on to it!! Well done, iphone users, another one goes completely over your heads :)
Pear, 26 Sep 2015You seriously need to stop campaigning and pick and choose the videos that suit your agenda...... moreI know i have seen 2 videos which s6 won clearly yet gsm wont let me post the link. One video the iphone 6s crashes twice.
