OdysseyUniteX, 28 Oct 2015My 2013 Galaxy S4 runs fine.Well, I have problem with Galaxy S4. It is not made for high demanding users. Response is slower, and transition from one to another app if you need to use them in the same time. I had OS that was really "eating" my battery, but when I change it to OS for Baltic it is really good. But still I have to be very careful when I am using device because it may occur to need to make a phone call and to have device turned off because battery drained.

(and up) considering the A10 rumors are tru... moreAs an Android fan, I have to admit that staying on Android for the quad core CPUs is retarded. The Apple A9 smokes all mobile SOCs and I would love to see and Android phone with a similar SOC, so far only the Nvdia X1 Denver is a rival and that is used exclusively on the Nexus 9.
kevin97, 28 Oct 2015The fact is, Android is very slow, laggy and overall inefficient. I (still) own an LG G2 but p... moreAndroid isn't slow, it can sometimes stutter (have frame skips), and it is actually efficient (The Nokia N1 has identical hardware to the iPad and performes better).
I have an LG G2 as well and in terms of speed it smokes my friends iPhone 5 (I know it's not the latest, but it's what I have to compare it to). The problem is you're running the stock software, which is LG's Optimus skin, and that is slow AF.
Before you buy a new phone, I suggest you go to Xda Developers and put CyanogenMod 12.1 on your phone. It might take you a day to learn everything, but it is worth it. You need to Root->Install custom recovery (TWRP)->Flash CyanogenMod 12.1
It's simple really. Cyanogenmod is 275MB. LG's Optimus ROM is over 2GB. You do the math. About 90% of your phone's OS is unnecessary and slowing it to a crawl.
Only a few android devices are comparable to iphone like z5 compact,galaxy alpha,mate7 and ...
most of them has Cpu issues and hang when browsing.
With Android flagships' prices sky-rocketing lately (in Europe that is) it's easy to make a switch to a similarly priced iPhone, just for the sake of trying it out. A regular Z5 off contract price is around $780. Nobody will convince me this piece of electronics is actually anywhere close to being worth that much.

considering the A10 rumors are tru... moreFYI apple's a9 dual core cpu is badass greater than any quad cores out there
1 A9 cpu is equal or even greater than 8core a53 at 1.7 ghz.
ok bad or pro doesn't matter what matters for us, if this continue to be like this for next years to come...it's bad for us because its always better to have competition
Too few android flagship options under 5".
For anyone that wants top spec and sensible size, the choices are Sony Z5c and iPhone 6s.
Almarhuby, 28 Oct 2015People complaining about Android being slow when they use phones like samsung, lg...etc why do... moreNice recommendation dude 'nexus' the devices known to have horrible horrible battery life
The way things are going with android it will be only matter of time before android becomes as closed as iOS :(
So called switched users are people who bought iPhone 4 in 2015, second third or even fourth hand, and all of them just get fed up with phone in 2-3 days. Reason you all know...
People complaining about Android being slow when they use phones like samsung, lg...etc why don't they try a nexus then speek!
vanityndwax, 28 Oct 2015Ecosystem preference. They could upgrade their phone from their shit android to a high end and... moreandroid has no ecosystem only its own mobile.
ios+osx and now windows mobile+windows10
i think android will start to fall a little inthe years to come
And they should! Many of the Android manufacturers are recently acting like Apple, so why just not switch to Apple?
