Android is software while iPhone is hardware! I think the swiftness of a software depends on the hardware.

This is the most overrated phone ever. Brand name makes this special, but the functionality and innovation? Nonsense even that fingerprint scanner will just a gimmick. This is now the start of the major breakdown of iPhone line up. Android will now soar higher because of this big mistake of apple.

The new BUDGET near £500 plastic value phone ? Better spec than the deceased iphone 5 for less cost. The ability to file your fingerprint for reference . Evolutionary instead of revolutionary :o . Showing Mr Steven Jobs was in fact an outstanding genius , and i am very sure would have something to say about the new (ahem)case .

It's because no one is buying Apple anymore and creating the Iphone plastic is a desperate effort for them to sell something and keep afloat..

"The G note 3 shows that we are moving towards 4GB Ram phones and 64bit CPUs that can run desktop like programs."
But I dont see the Note 3 coming with a 64-bit chip.. I understand what you are trying to say but I meant only for the present-day apps and games..

Slightly disagree the finger print scanner on my laptop is much faster than password entry.

The only miss reads I get are if I have done some diy and destroyed my finger print.

Good idea from Apple to use their large home button. Motorola was first. Scanners on laptops are not that common but should be and will be even more common now that apple does it.

As mobile devices gain over desktops and laptops, mobile devices will have to move from consuming content to creating content. Hence we have a Note 3 with 3GB of ram.

64bit CPUs have larger registers. So if the app is 64bit it is able to access 64bit registers.

Problem is, all the apps are 32bit so it doesn't make a difference. It's all marketing.

Andriod Noobs.
Stop Trolling, Stop Hating.
iPhone is THE biggest and most popular phone in the world.
That will not change, no matter how much you hate it.
The quicker you accept this, the easyer it will be.

Touchscreen has existed for decades but no company has made them nice to use, until Apple.

Same for fingerprint sensor. It has been here for ages. We'll see soon if Apple using existing tech of fingerprint sensor and turn them into some very nice to use

Apple release their "low-end phone". It looks very cheap but price is not cheap at all. I'd rather buy a high-end phone from Sony or Samsung because its almost the same price range.
