If you are a die hard apple fan then go with iphone 6. Else go with Android. Yes the iphone has lag free user experience but there are many restrictions. In this period of time it's advisable to go with Android. Invest in samsung galaxy s6. It's a great phone,

Galaxy S6 is 1st and LG G4 is 2nd in the ranking. I would go for the LG because of the awesome genuine leather design. At least i know Leather doesn't scratch and break like aluminum or glass back cover.

Duel, 25 Jun 2015"I don't believe for one second that you use a flagship android device with the previous ... moreLike to bring up past android phones ok let me tell you how my iPhone 4s experience was. At the time I given all the hype by biased ifans and told this was the best phone available so I took out a 2 year contract on the device. I found the battery draining so fast it was always plugged into its charger when doing any gaming web surfing or watching videos from the first month of owning the device. Then after about the 2 months of owning the device I realised I stopped using the device as anything other than a phone as it wasn't worth the hassle charging it 3 times a day. I then used my laptop for entertainment web surfing gaming and watching videos. After 6 months I had my first serious problem which at the time was very commen problem the power button stopped working so off the phone went for its first fix through Apple. When the phone returned it wasn't holding a charge. Not only did I have the power button failure but now I had to send it back because it wasn't charging and got so hot I couldn't leave it charge at night just in case I fell a sleep and a fire was to start I was that worried about over heating. When I got the phone back again granted it lasted up until 2 weeks before my warranty was up but this time the display wouldn't work and needed replacing at which point I took it to a place that I sold the broken iPhone to for parts. I had enough of the phone and just wanted rid of the dam thing. I went for an early upgrade and got my self the s4 which had better battery and better screen and I stopped using my computer as much as I had been. In all the time of owning the s4 I did not have any issues and sold the phone in as good as condition as when I first had it. I have got iPhone 5s and s6 edge at the moment but I have owned nexus 5 and before my iPhone 4s I owned a s2 which is still used by my mother in law today. The reason I own a iPhone 5s is because my wife purchased it for me as a gift so sentimental if you like. I will admit it has took me by surprise and I do find my self using the device quite often but still find the device much more restricted than my s6 edge and by no means a match to it. So next time you have a pop at older android models just remember iPhones had plenty of problems aswel.

Why? Millions of people are currently jumping from android to those new bigger iPhones.

Then you wonder why people have a pop at your comments. Try educate your self before trying to educate others.

High end android not lag, cost like iPhone, OS stuck update after 1yr ~2 or so. So many still waiting on lollipop.
iPhone always improving, iOS 9 is coming for all existing iOS 8 users.
So basically speaking, iPhone is still a better deal. You do not need to be smart to discover that. Most android fanboys think too hard, their brain explode on the number and specs.. they failed to realise the most basic thing: If specs gives you not much gain, why bother?
Its just like when you DIY a PC, and you spend all your money get GTX Titan, and a weak Core i3.. whats the use? Android makers always brag one thing, and dismiss the other, all are lopsided design.. big resolution camera but weak storage options, high density screen but weak gpu. Plus not to forget the unoptimised android OS, and most people are stuck in older version, even freezing their app versions, developers also have no choice but to backward support sdk 8.. very sad.

May be its because you are either using a very old device or lying because I don't believe for one second that you use a flagship android device with the previous comments you have made. iPhones and iPads are all about brand name, that and the fact it's so simple children use them.

But fair enough, it might do the trick for you, i want my phone to do a few more things...small things, like
- NFC - i have one on my desk for example that is set to make sure it will wake me up in the morning
- I like to go for a coffee at my local coffeeshop and charge my phone wirelessly
- I like to film with both cameras at the same time to catch my reaction and whatevers happening simultaneously
- I like to multitask...watch youtube and reply to a message without having to quit one or the other
- I like widgets. I know there's been a heavy campaign by ilovers to make humans think they do not need those. I like them, they're funny and helpful...weather, music, notepad, calendar...my phone looks awesome with those....
- I like to have my ringtone set to the game of thrones theme song witout having to pay however much apple is charging me
- i like to uninstall all the unecessary million apps that the phone comes preloaded with
i like to be able to use my phone's bluetooth with any device out there or use my phone as a remote control for absolutely any device out there (i use mine to control my AC, my imac, my lg tv, etc)
- i like to have a phone where i can do all these and come back home at the end of the night with a little battery left
- don't get me started on the back-button
- my phone looks and feels premium and that is because it actually is, not because heavy paid campaigners have implemented that in the consumer's mindset. iphones just look too cheap for me
these are some of the reasons why i like my android flagship and until apple solve some of these issues, i will not consider an iphone. I was unlucky enough to have an iphone 6 for about 3 months and it really was dreadful.
Well I've been an iPhone user for a while now (4s-5c-5s then 6) and I can tell that once you start using an apple device you find out it's the best : Fast , Less Virus risks , performing elegant looking and clear. I bought the note 4 by samsung. Well it was not bad but apple is clearly better by a wide gap. Samsung are trying to remain competetive in the market by copying whatever new features are created by apple and selling a similar product to apple's at a cheaper price and their strategy seems to work as the number of samsung users is increasing. My point long story short is that if you're looking for approximatively the same specifications as an iPhone but with a cheaper price, go for samsung. It might not be as performing as an iPhone but it costs less. Personally I'm very satisfied with my 6 except for some small details

Very well said and 100% agree, back in time i was tech nerd and been used computers since they were black/white. I grew up with computers and i was that spec geek and numbers were everything, when i got interested about iPhone (3g/3gs) i was like that doesn't feel good choice in paper, yet i saw few videos in youtube and was totally blown away how smooth those devices were already in 2009. Then i decided to try just released iPhone 3GS and everything what i thought about tech, computers and numbers didnt mean anything anymore. Even three years after 3GS release i was surprised it performance. And nothing really have changed since that, Apple still teaching me and millions of others what is true performance and what are things which really matter, you can't (well of course you can but you shouldn't) buy computer chosing fastest and biggest numbers on paper, those parts has to work perfectly together with software to get out best performance and user experience and thats Apple devices. Every part and software together makes iPhone and iPad so good for millions, not single features , or single hardware parts.
Apple made their first phablet in 2014. Samsung made theirs back in 2011. Now Apple announcing they will make flexible curve screen iphone by 2018. Samsung made that since last year. They also finally will ditch IPS display and replaced it with OLED. Samsung had been using SuperAmoled for many years. Apple Iphone are always 4 years behind Samsung technology. By 2018, Samsung probably already 4 years ahead than Apple with virtual reality, augmented reality, hologram and flexible Samsung Youm display.
Anonymous, 25 Jun 2015No need to wonder. People buy iPhone because its a no hassle smooth operating mobile. Fo... moreYou are quite delusional to think that people buy iphones because of their quality. I have said it before, no tech publication out there puts an iphone in the top position for best smartphone in the world, it actually rarely makes the top 5. I had one of these and whilst it was running relatively decent (not better than the s6, nexus, note 4 or lg g4), i just got bored very quickly. It is incredibly limited. iphones are good for older people who don't know how to customize an Android. If you know how to customize an Android (which takes about 3 seconds to learn), you can make your Android 10 times simpler than an iphone....also, people care about camera and battery, 2 important feature where the iphone is yet again behind other flagships. And yes, cores and rams don't matter quite as much to an closed-operating system like iOS, but MP do matter...posting iphone pictures on my 27inch imac looked horrendous...some people like to zoom in or blow pictures up...anyway, it's very simple mate, stick to iphones, no one is telling you otherwise, but stopping talking about things you don't understand, just continue buying the same cheap looking phone year after year. Oh yes, and it does look cheap, no matter how much some advertisers were paid to say it looks premium. iphones look terrible compared to other flagships, mainly because half the phone is bezels, not screen. When i buy a phone, i want to look at the screen, not at whatever cheap metal iphones are made of...so there you go, in order to have a bit of extra fun, a better camera, a good battery life and a nicer looking phone, iphone sould not be your top choice x
Anonymous, 25 Jun 2015No need to wonder. People buy iPhone because its a no hassle smooth operating mobile. Fo... morePerhaps try using other devices then you will be able to have a opinion. You mention the apparent lag but if you use any of the flagship device you will find that there is hardly no lag and works very smooth. Your views show you have not used the new android devices or understand its capability. Yes I agree the numbers don't count but that's not what a lot of phone owners look at for example I use my iPhone more as a phone and I use my android device for entertainment like streaming movies playing games and for those purposes the android device is ideal. Now the G4 and s6 have the best cameras also. you mention how easy iPhones are to use but so are android devices it's all about preference.
Anonymous, 25 Jun 2015So I wonder why so many people buy iPhones hmmm. http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-08-25/dumb... moreNo need to wonder.
People buy iPhone because its a no hassle smooth operating mobile.
For those people that are dumb, they will not be digging at tech sites and try to evaluate the benchmarks / OS or hardware, or discussing specs. They just trust their five senses, if the end product is fast and smooth, who cares if it has 2004986304698 cores?
For those that understand technology in the other hand, will also marvel iPhone, because its a impressive piece of technology, every bit considered, the size /dimension / battery / cpu / screen all have being considered and weigh to provide the optimum performance and user friendliness. Who cares if you have 4K display and end up lagging like crap? Who cares if you have 20MP camera, when you have only 16GB internal, with slow SD card that cannot even keep up with the recording space?
So what happens to those that did not buy iPhones (other then price)? They are not very smart, nor did they research / consider enough.
michaelca, 25 Jun 2015Let's talking about lifespan. In most undeveloped country, like mine, iphone 4 is still common... moreThat's a bad example because Apple have stopped making the iPhone 4, 4s, 5. So if they are still selling in your countries they are either used or over produced old stock. In my country the UK I could buy a s3 from a high street shop along with 2 years warranty but not a iPhone 4, 4s, 5. I can even still get a s3 on a contract. So it's not about the devices lasting longer because I still see people using a Samsung s2.
