Excuse me but people who say android is difficult to use have either never used a proper android or have learning difficulties.
On my previous LG phone i had contacts, what's app, camera and skype on my first page. That is all. How can that be difficult to people? There is no way you can get it sinpler than that. On my new iphone however i need to stick with a million apps from this silly company that i will never use...it really is atrocious...can't wait to get rid of this...
I had been an iPhone loyalist since iPhone 4(which I purchased during my college days in the US) and then moved on to iPhone 5. I puchased the Iphone 6 in January this year and I just wanted to share my feelings of using the same. I wouldnt be comapring the iPhone 6 with any Android flagships; each phone is good in its own way.
What I feel about iPhones is that they are dsigned to work easily for the user. Sure, Apple traps you by restricting customisations, but then that also means that iPhones are less prone to virus attacks. Also 4.7" screen diagonal is apt for one-handed use. The screen, though not the brightest out there, has enough pixels for me to enjoy HD videos on Youtube. I can easily connect to my gmail and other Google Apps. Also, the AppStore boasts of some of the best mobile applications.
The camera is slightly less in terms of number of pixels, but nonetheless, you get perfectly usable pictures and in some cases, better than what point-and-shoots offer.
Finally, I havent had any heating issues so far, though my iPhone 6 experiences ocassional lags and stutters while palying heavy games.
The space gray colour is a beauty to behold and I enjoy the glance and stare of people everytime I bring out my iPhone of the pocket. My work requires me to travel abroad and my iPhone is truly a gloabal phone in that. Its 4G-enabled for most regions and offcourse, its a true unlocked phone that works with any sim anywhere.

Hard to say, according to many speedtests the speed is about same. Some things works faster with S6 and some with iPhone 6, even the difference in most of cases is near to none.
tumama, 22 Apr 2015which one is the fastest phone the iphone 6 or the samsung s6On paper specs, the cpu of S6 is superior then iPhone 6 / 6 plus. Samsung is keen to show the world their paper specs win everyone.
But burden of the resolution cause S6 to perform worse then iPhone 6 / 6 plus in actual life.
Now, normal applications should see no major impact. Its only when you run games and graphic intensive apps, you find S6 is worse then iP6/plus.

I've had my iPhone for 4 months now and all I can say is it's crap
The battery life is completely garbage it doesn't even last a full 24 hours and the phone gets stupidly hot after 10 minutes of usage apparently Apple says it's cause you need to start the phone as "a new device" and therefore cannot backup from your old phone...then what the hell was the point of being able to transfer it to a new phone...after my contract is up I doubt I'll go with another iPhone
We just purchased the IPHONE 6 a month ago and it is already bent, Apple says that it will not replace it due to it being "accidental damage". Beware of these phones, we had it in an otter box from the time of purchase and the phone still bent....
Anonymous, 21 Apr 2015S6 isn't much faster than iPhone 6, they are actually almost same speed devices, all the speed... moreYeah right
S6 is still a better device than the iphone 6 (specs and cost wise)
I've been a loyal Android (Samsung) fan since the Galaxy 1 came out and I was blown away over my then failing Nokia (symbian phone).
But just as Nokia played the fool and got cocky, so has Samsung and I've had both the S4 and S5 give me hell with some problem or another.
So I tried the so called "devil" in my mind, being the iPhone and I don't think I am going back to Android. I have been seduced by the dark side and though it has only been days, I don't think I'll be going back.
I will be hoping that I don't have to change my phone again soon and when I do, I hope that by then, Apple would improve where Android succeeds more.
So far from what I have experienced, my new iPhone 6 is seamless with use. No hiccups to transition. Touch ID beats that crap that the S5 put out. Camera may seem like less megapixels, but interface is much better and for some reason I can't figure out yet, picture quality seems so much better. Megapixels isn't everything after all. My call quality has dramatically improved as my friends have qualified that my speech doesn't sound muffled anymore. One friend joked that I sounded like Darth Vader. Oh and most impressive is my speakers, wow, what a difference. I can hear some much better with these loud speakers and I've had this problem with Samsungs from day one.
All in all I can't complain so far. Yes, Apple is expensive, but if it can last me for at least 2 years before I change, then it would be worth it. I've had to change both S4 and S5 within a year each and inbetween that I had a S3 mini which was a terrible experience.
I was surprised to look at the specs on the iphone to see that they are using a dual core and still they end up putting out a great phone over a quad core processor that still gives problems.
So for now I am hooked.
And for anyone wanting to take the leap, just do it.
You won't be disappointed.
Anonymous, 21 Apr 2015We all know what you said, but still those android devices doesn't run iOS, neither have acces... moreSo what you are saying is that if you buy an iphone, you need to continue buying everything that one single company puts out.
You do realize how that is detrimental? I for one don't like to be owned by one company...i like to have different things from different companies. Apple does not have the upper hand in any of those individual categories. It's just another tech company who functions more on marketing than innovation.
Also, S6 is half a year younger than the iphone 6. Also, the S5 is half a year older and it still beats the iphone 6 in a lot of categories (important ones: camera and battery for example). Just sayin x

So when upcoming iPhone coming, it's going to be speed beast again. because S6 hardly beats dual core iPhone 6 :D
Pear, 21 Apr 2015The reason why this page attracts people like me is because people who buy this phone tend to ... moreWe all know what you said, but still those android devices doesn't run iOS, neither have access to appstore, doesn't have best 3rd accessories collection, doesn't have support for Apple watch, no continuity, no unified experience among different products. No support for upcoming Apple TV box and current models. I could continue this list a long time but i got bored...
You should see the big picture it's not all about device vs device, it's the whole ecosystem with many devices working together effortlessly.
and yes S6 beats iPhone 6 in some areas, it's one year newer device than iPhone 6 so it's not that strange, funnier would have been if S6 couldn't beat the iPhone 6? If we can learn anything from pass iPhone 6S/7 going to beat every other phone in 2015 again just like every year before.
Voting resoults are hillarious. This voting is from android users. But how can they grade iPhone when they don't own this phone. Reason for this bad grades? Jealousy. That is all from me, enjoy all people who can in this amazing iPhone.
The reason why this page attracts people like me is because people who buy this phone tend to think 2 things:
1. All android phones are people who can't afford Apple
2. All android phones are low in quality.
It's very simple. Price wise there are plenty of Android phone that are more expensive (as that would matter). What matters is that most phones that have a smaller retail price than the iphone 6, actually cost more to manufacture.
A simple research on S6 vs i6 (the 2 most popular phone right now, makes it quite obvious):
1. Battery life - S6: 19:48h Talktime
10:56h Web browsing
12:12h Video Playback
iPhone6: 12:23h Talktime
10:29h Web browsing
9:24h Video Playback
2. Camera wise, we all know it's not all about the number of megapixels. However, as many tests suggest, the S6 camera ridicules the iphone 6 one. The "galatic" test performed here on GSM arena showed that out of the NOTE 4, S5, S6 and iphone 6, the iphone 6 came last in quality of pictures taken.
3. Durability - several tests done on Youtube (granted, not incredibly scientific) show the S6 surviving falls that the iphone 6 would never dream of surviving. I mean it survived a runover with a car...
4. Speed - All benchmark tests show the S6 being much faster than the iphone 6. The only area where the iphone 6 wins by a very little margin is the single core power. That would be exciting if we were in 2012.
A. NFC - i can currently use my phone in bus stops to check when the next bus is coming, by just swiping my phone over a pole (yes, it's actually fun)
B. Wireless charging - the S6 is a phone that you will soon be able to charge in coffee shops and stuff..
C. Widgets - they're fun, they have personality
D. Payments - you can use the S6 in the majority of retailers, whereas the iphone 6 can be used in the apple store and mcdonalds or something like that...
The list could go on, but i'm getting a bit bored writing...
