this phone is awsome...fun to use..good perfomance..if you really love the freedom of android..hold two phones(a midrange android alng with iphone)...or buy an android tablet...if you cant do this,then go for android flagship.
the must for the iphone is
-money(for the phone itself & for purchasing apps)
-wifi(cellular speed is slow compared to android)
King of Phones.
WWDC 2015, iPhone will reach a new height!
iPhones, iPads, Apple TV, Macs, Watch. All different, yet as one.

Sam Rohab, 02 Jun 2015space grey or gold ?? Iphone 6 gold looks premium or cheap ?Just got home and iPhone 6 is here (well left at neighbours) in gold. Can it really be gold phone when front is white ?I think it should be all white all gold all silver and black should be black not space grey.
Leave it to set up now via iTunes but still does not feel like iPhone, button looks odd, small and odd Think I am so used to industrial design. Anyhow going to use it for 2 weeks solid to get used to it this time.

Iphone6... moreBut it's not really a unique design...iphones have stolen so much off of samsung and other highend androids in the past that it's downright shameful...i'm not a big fan of the design of the 6, the 4s looked stylish to me, this one doean't...i do however think that the edge is the nicest looking phone on the market right now...it looks and feels premium...unfortunately i can't afford it so i am stuck with this dull iphone :(
Apple iphone6 design is so easy to copy that all smartphone begin to look like iphone. Iphone6 is no longer unique in term of design. It losing it coolness factor. Look at Huawei P8 that look like a slimmer version of iphone6 and ZTE Nubia Z9 that look like a bezeless iphone6. Yup, people took iphone design and make it better than Apple. Jonathan Ive is going to get fired soon just like that guy in Samsung design team.
bapun, 02 Jun 2015sony phones always have serious heating problems...Had Z3 compact twice as it was full powered phone sized phone but audio was poor through headphones and speakers plus cam was not good. It did record video at 4K for 29 mins for me before it ran out of memory,most phones manage 5 mins of 4K video recording. Sony should be tops with their Walkman audio and Sony cam lens unit but they are not.
bapun, 02 Jun 2015any one please tell me is there any toggle switch for 2g 3g 4g on iphone 6.....Settings > Cellular > Voice ( 2G/3G/LTE switch). If you have updated your carrier, you may not get all options.
any one please tell me is there any toggle switch for 2g 3g 4g on iphone 6.....
Riyuk6239, 01 Jun 2015I used to be an Android user, I mainly switched to iOS because Android L is buggy as hell. It ... more have not found anyone liking Lollipop KitKat is best as Original-Jamaican said in earlier post and loads agree.
Original-Jamaican, 01 Jun 2015To PEAR:
Thanks for your input. What you said made a lot of sense. I have owned more Nokia ... moreOh yes Symbian was what I grew up with and you too. Although Symbian is dead it still had easy file manager,easy bluetooth transfer and Nokia's quirky designed phones and loved it to bits.
I too had mainly Samsung Androids but did not get S6 because of usual no sd card.battery removal. The biggest disappointment is I thought Sony would do better,they seemed better under Sony Ericsson. Oh well just try and enjoy phones and glad we live in this era where all this lot has been invented. I will give Windows another try when 10 comes out.

Never got a virus nor been hacked as far as I know. The Galaxy S4/5 has increased security even further by introducing KNOX Security. Remember, Android protection level is just the base, manufacturers can add even further protection if they choose to.
Whereas copying is concerned...You accuse Google or copying Apple...well Apple is big copier though Apple fans are blind to the truth...I won't say it in my own words I will just quote a commentor who left their comment on Yahoo Tech forums.
Exact words from Yahoo commenter:
copy? you mean like Apple did with the M8? and the Galaxy Note? and NFC? and the smartwatch? and reachability? and widgets? and the notification bar? etc etc etc

You have your experience and I have mine. I have a factory unlocked S5 which was never tied to any provider (sometimes providers are at fault for the bugs and lags) My S5 came with Kitkat 4.4.2 and I have no problems whatsoever with it. It's fast, stable, buttery smooth, never crashed nor froze, never had to do battery pull, doesn't lag, no connectivity issues, no dropped calls and best of all, good battery life. I'm not changing my OS to Lollipop because there is a famous saying...if it ain't broke don't fix it. It takes 1:55 minutes to charge which is a huge difference compared to the 3+ hours my S2 took to charge...whose battery also depleted much quciker than the S5. All over the internet official reviewers state that the S5 have an excellent battery...CNET (hardest reviewing company) and even our own GSMArena right here. GSMArena tests concluded a 72 hours endurance test with the S5 running KitKat and 83 hours running Lollipop whereas the iPhone 6 endurance test concludes at 61 hours so either way you take it the S5 gives you a longer lasting battery. I have no complaints about my S5 and as a somebody in the technology field for more than 20 years, who has has a passion for features and open platforms, Android suits me better and the Galaxy S technology makes it even better. As GSMArena stated "The Galaxy S is the trendsetter for all smartphones".
Stick with what works for you and I will stick with what works for me but word of advice for the future, whichever make or model phone you migrate to, stick to factory unloock devices they are usually stable than the provider versions. They cost a lot more but you won't be tied to a plan and you are getting a much better device any way you look at it.

For example, a dual core cyclone chip can easily outperform a quad core Snapdragon Krait chip.
[deleted post]I think you said enough already... :D That was hilarious.

If you don't own iPhone, why you are here almost every day?
By the way iPhone 6 camera is great, among the best, don't understand how anyone can say it's mediocre.
