lets go, 05 Oct 2014I really can't remember that far back, all I get from 2012 is the London Olympics sorry.
Yo... more"Benchmarks in themselves do NOT add features, the iPhone has NO Sapphire as "promised" it has lost Gorilla glass protection and now is just shatterproof glass"
It was never promised. It was only rumored, and all flagship phones use Gorilla Glass, not Sapphire. No points taken there.
"iPhone 6 is NOT water or Dust proof (IP67 certified - dust and water resistant)"
Again, most flagships are not. No points taken here either.
"Apple pay is a gimmick, and NOT a phone related feature so 2 years"
Apple pay is the most secure mobile payment method there is, specially with its Touch ID integration.
If anything like this were a gimmick, Google Wallet would be one.
"if you ALREADY have cash or credit / debit card or cheque I am sure that ALL establishments that accept Apple pay will accept one or all of the other payment methods from you a friend who has this.
Having Apple pay in an establishment that does NOT accept Apple pay is......
As Apple pay is NOT new technology in essence all those people who in 2012 were contracted to the iPhone5 have NOT upgraded but signed up for a larger display iPhone 5."
True, but it adds simplicity to something we do every day, buy stuff. It is easier, faster, and more secure to just tap my iPhone with my fingerprint to make a payment rather than taking out my wallet>>card/cash>> wait for the cashier to stop polishing her nails (it is a walgreens, remember) and take accept the payment, give me change/receipt, etc etc...
i do understand your point, but give it time. It might be something
RedZobe, 15 Oct 2014The amount of Apple boys in the comments is unbelievable.
The iPhone 6 is NOT the best phon... moreWell, possibly not.
The 'best' phone on the market comes down to opinion and preference, more than anything else.
Anonymous, 30 Sep 2014Lol. The software is glitch but it's ok. But when it comes to comparing it to android the soft... moreI do not like Samsung! It is always crashing... Samsung is nothing compared to iPhone...

just a curved edge iphone 5, same spec nothing ground breaking same as Galaxy SII
1gb ram huh?
Heres your iphone performance...
Lag,frame loss, lag...
Suspenders, 07 Oct 2014I don't understand a lot of comments on tech specs, ram, etc.
What about real world use? ... moreMeanwhile back here in reality even the S3 runs very well even after prolonged use.
And if you want to talk about real world use ios 7 and 8 have brought endless crashes, bugs, freezes, weight, and lags.
All phones will have some lag. But ios is what is leading in crashes and lags. And even back in older slightly lighter variants of ios they still largely had the world lead in app crashes.
And just because you yourself claim or most online haters here claim they don't use all their features does not each features doesn't appeal to groups of people. Most people in general will use some set of the available features.
And even if not...which they do...but if not...it still does not justify all the work and optimizing it takes to make them and get them working...
While apple just restricts the phone, limits the features, can't even pay someone to fix their bugs and then charges you more for less and claims it is so superior.
I don't understand a lot of comments on tech specs, ram, etc.
What about real world use? What's the use of a brand new Galaxy S5 if after a few months and being filled up with some data, it lags?
What's the use of higher specs on a flagship android if apps aren't even built to take advantage of it?
What if something goes wrong with your phone? Do you realize how EASY it is to go into Apple and have it repaired or them give you a new one? Ever try that with the other providers? I don't know about you, but there aren't a ton of Samsung, LG & Sony stores around...
And then features. Back in 2007, I had a Nokia N95 which I loved. It could do SO many things that other phones couldn't even dream of. But guess what? I took advantage of almost NONE of those "extra features" that the phone could afford me.
For most people who are busy, a reliable phone that works well and meets real world needs on a regular basis, is important. And that makes it a premium phone, worthy of a premium price.

So you still have no argument.
at least they shouldve increased the screen to straight 5inch and camera would be 10-12mp and 32gb shouldve been kept as standard..... a shadow to samasung s3.... disappointing....
Rich Boy, 30 Sep 2014Android users, ask yourselves.
How well would YOUR Android phone run if it had 1GB of RAM ... moreI really can't remember that far back, all I get from 2012 is the London Olympics sorry.
You have to realise that benchmark measure in the main is speed.
Do you think an IPhone loading an app a few milliseconds faster is something to write home about?
Benchmarks in themselves do NOT add features, the iPhone has NO Sapphire as "promised" it has lost Gorilla glass protection and now is just shatterproof glass
iPhone 6 is NOT water or Dust proof (IP67 certified - dust and water resistant)
THIS & THAT is better than either this or that
Android phone have never bragged about being better in everything, just MOST thing, so having features NOT on an iPhone is "no contest"
Apple pay is a gimmick, and NOT a phone related feature so 2 years
if you ALREADY have cash or credit / debit card or cheque I am sure that ALL establishments that accept Apple pay will accept one or all of the other payment methods from you a friend who has this.

2 years later the exact same phone but bigger, http://www.gsmarena.com/compar...dPhone2=6378
I find your constant comments about screen size and all this junk very useless. Many of us work in an industrial environment and having a smaller phone like the iPhone 5 is much better bet. 5"+ becomes unwieldy when you have to work on an industrial plant and the phone is so big and useless OS system don't allow quick access to features required and phablets are just useless for OHO( one handle operation). Perhaps in future you should take this into account. So far every Samsung and Sony over 5" has been dumped for the "older, not so flashy iPhone 5s's in our corporate environment. Not to mention the superior built quality and no-nonsense iOS systems.
darkraver, 04 Oct 2014Aint talking bout camera preset...but the screen settingyeah....The changeable settings Samsung has been putting in to change the colors of Amoled to very saturated or very natural with proper white balance.
Rubbish fone, you could buy a Huawei and ZTE at a fraction of the iFake's price, and still get good value for money.
I really love this phone. This s the first time I own an up to date iPhone. My complaint is that it is too big for a 4.7". Galaxy s4 feels smaller. The Aluminum also feels cheap. It already has a minor scratch so I ended up buying the leather case. I hate cases and how they always attract dust but I did spend almost $1K. It would be my perfect phone if it was made like the 5s with the size of last years Moto X. It would have even better to not use the rounded edges.
Anonymous, 04 Oct 2014Except Samsung can and has been doing it longer.Aint talking bout camera preset...but the screen setting
eq5555, 03 Oct 2014iPhone 6 is the best phone at this moment
Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Alpha have bad wh... moreExcept it's display is not best. It's camera is not best. It's speaker is weak. It's Headphone output took a step back.
It's cpu is held back by ram and clock speed. It's gpu is what is saving the chip.
The 6 has weak battery still and no ois. The 6 plus bends.
and the os still leads in app crashes and has more lock ups, bugs, and lags.
