thefearfulsilence, 10 Sep 2014I hate straying anywhere near Fanboi territory by getting caught up in things like the megapix... moreYou got that idea all wrong.
IOS is limited period. 7 wad not limited to work on older devices. In fact it gained a little for the first time in years. Which is why it actually became heavy and laggy. ..worse for older devices. They did not code it well or optimize it well. So it had many bugs and lags.
On the flip side Android Kitkat became even lighter and more stable and is the most advanced version yet. Made to do everything under the sun and still work better on lower end devices.
So the question is whether IOS 8 takes care of this or not.
And the fact that it won't be available to the 4 makes me think they didn't take care of this.
So the poor 4s and 5 will suffer.
Plus restricting even the new 6 to still have only 1GB of ram means the 64bit on it and 5s is still severely under utilized and not as stable as it should be.
And means you can still expect those constant crashes and hangs.
For the sake of the users let's hope I'm wrong and they are just ditching support for the 4. Which would still be messed up to leave it with an unstable buggy system if they made a suitable fix.
Of course if I'm right more people might start to wake up...but the bigger screen and using terms like 64bit will blind many into staying.
darkraver, 09 Sep 2014Never could go without home screens and widgets of android....ios is just plane app grid...juc... moreDo you know how to use the spotlight search? In searching almost everything in iphone? What about siri? Do you know how to make folders so you can group your apps? Widget? I have a rooted xperia ray and stock sony z1 but I never use widgets eventhough the implementation for Sony is very nice compared to other android devices. For me its just a clutter. In some lower ver. Of android you cant even resize widgets and its annoying to see that its not uniformly sitting on your homescreen.
just pass by, 10 Sep 2014http://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_galaxy_s5-6033.php , check it out.please dont tell anyone you are iphone user.
Apple is surely going to be next nokia because of its over proud and over priced devices. Even children know specifications , quality and price of apple. Only blind fans who don't know information technology developing recently can not save apple. Anyway good luck for apple !
I hate straying anywhere near Fanboi territory by getting caught up in things like the megapixel race, but if we are being honest the spec sheet looks pretty lame (apart from maybe the cpu and Apple seem to be good at optimising these even at relatively low clock speeds).
Apple are the zen masters at selling the least hardware for the most money but they need to start delivering on the supposedly superior user experience that allegedly justifies their pricing if they want me to get back on board the Apple bus.
So my focus switches to ios 8 which for me is hugely more important than what Apple may have done to the phone itself. Hopefully it wont be as hopelessly limited as ios7 was just so they could make it work on older devices. So it's over to the ios team.....
Apples' battery life and camera specs are really falling behind it's competitors

If you want a decent picture, bought a camera. If you want a decent video, bought a good recorder.Simple as that..!
i_a_User, 10 Sep 2014Stop comparing cheap Samsung with apple. Features in Samsung is irritating , cheap and useless... moreWow hater detected the moment you said the galaxy s4 was a decade behind i knew that u clearly did not ever touch a s4 which is 1year old
Its useless? Lol ifans are so blind well all the features that are being introduced into iphone 6 the galaxy s4 or wait not only the s4 ALL the androids had them long ago
No phone is from the last decade except the iphone

Nobody is outdated except tye iphone 6.
Nice phone...but not the best...just another apple...lack of 4k video shows how powerful was note3....

We finally get apple fan to appreciate the bigger screen.
Too bad so many other feature they still wont get for a few more years.
Apple remains faithful to its old slogan: "Yesterday's technology at tomorrow's prices".
So, welcome to 2012, Apple fanboys (4,7" screen, 1 GB RAM, 8MP camera, NFC etc.).
