Anonymous, 22 Sep 2014I do have to admit the iPhones smoothness in user interface and quality, but for functionality... moreI feel extremely sorry for you if you truly believe that. seriously.
you android users have this for many years.
"just wait for the next version of android. It's going to be the greatest and bestest."
yet the problem still persists in android. they all crap out after 9 months, and that's being generous, because the hardware and software problems.
android has been quite buggy, regardless.
hardware. flagships seem to think they can compensate for the lagginess by putting together a phone of powerful specs, but powerful specs usually leads to a shorter life spam of the phone, which means, the phone won't last very long, we are talking one year. and since it's hardware based any new updates for android usually results in deadly lag if the phone is upgraded, and again not the best idea.
Anonymous, 22 Sep 2014Did you not read my comment or not understand it?Apparently you didn't understand my comment. You said androids don't struggle to sell and mentioned the android market share which is made up low end devices.
When comparing the iphones to androids, its understood that were talking high end androids, which struggle to sell when compared to the iphone. Look Sony's 1.2 billion dollar loss this year for reference.
And as for the usability comment, atleast iphones dont require factory resets every month to function properly.
Guys this thread sucks ! as all iphone threads .. :DDDDDDD muhahahahaa
I do have to admit the iPhones smoothness in user interface and quality, but for functionality, capabilities, productivity and overall value for money, the Note 4 wins hands down. And with the new Android L just around the corner, that iPhone smoothness advantage might just about to be cut down to a minimum or none existent.
Anonymous, 22 Sep 2014Not sure you've looked at the stats? Android's don't struggle to sell at all. They have 61.9% ... moreWould love to see an Android which sold 10 million units in a week.
As for functionality, after my 1 month old S5 developed the mm-qcamera-daemon bug and drained 80 percent of my battery in 2 hours, all with no known solution rather than a full factory reset, I cant wait to sell it and get an iphone. And I paid full cash for my Galaxy S5, 740 USD.
Never gonna spend a cent on Android again unless they can work out the bugs. I know a friend with an Iphone 3GS that just had a battery change this year and works flawlessly. No bugs, no factory resets required.

I would love to see Samsung with real competition in the display area. :) Only time will tell.
aviS., 22 Sep 2014Apple Best company in World.Yup, best in copying in the last 6 years. This phones look like a nokia 625 with more premium material on the back and 600 euro price boost. In rest, form and even the bend of the desplay Has nokia written all over. As for the system. Well, same ios crap, with same no capabilities and billion apps.
Reaper8, 22 Sep 2014Apple sells because people buy experiences, not specs. This is something none of you android f... moreNot sure you've looked at the stats? Android's don't struggle to sell at all. They have 61.9% market share vs apples 32.5% in the US. Individual companies selling android are struggling to meet previous sales but that's because there is so much competition in the android market (awesome for buyers) and all of these new companies selling decent phones at even cheaper prices. There is so much selection of companies and range of phones with android its not even funny. Specs are not everything sure but specs vs price is everything. I personally would love top specs but price holds me back. I bought an s3 because it was $350NZ and to be honest i struggle to use my work 5c after using the s3. The 1 button thing is a joke, itunes don't even get me started on how crap a program that is. No copy/paste is a deal breaker i would never buy a phone without this function, it makes life soooo much easier.
Apple just keeps getting bigger and bigger. The people have spoken. The iPhone is the most popular and best smartphone in the world. Everyone wants one.
The iPhone 6 plus "retina" display is still beaten by the Note 4 truer retina QHD Super Amoled display (according to displaymate, not me;). Hmm.. I wonder why that is... Maybe because of the bluish white of the iPhone's display or is it because lcds are forever doomed to always have to have backlighting that they'd never enjoy the infinite contrast and the perfect black of the Amoled while the Note 4 Samoled has already achieved the most realistic color rendering?.. It appears so..
Reaper8, 22 Sep 2014Im saying in every single PRACTICAL way, the GTR is a better car than the Ferrari. Cheaper and... moreIphone is all time the best.and it dosn't effect virus with biggest app store market.
gadgeteer, 22 Sep 2014So 10% increase from last year? Apple has got its peak. So much money though. Nearly unstoppab... morelol were did you get 10% from
2013 iphone sold in total. 150.26 million
2013 iphone sales first 3 quarters
116 million sold
2014 iphone sales NOT INCLUDING IPHONE 6 sales
Same time last year...... 130 million already sold.
at this pace, Iphone already sold 14 million more units then last year. That's more then
not sure were were you mumbling about the 10% that said more android users are just rambling bs anyways. Use to that by now.
btw gsm arena... still waiting for you to post the article were apple has the best lcd display.
[deleted post]Huh? I thought Sharp manufactured the iPhone's display? Where did you get LG from?
No wonder they sell like hotcakes - it must have been terrible for Apple users to cope with the stupid small 4" screen for all those years.
Pretty sad that Iphone users probably never will try the Xperia Z3 which seems to be a much better phone...
