Why are people buying this anyway? I looked at some reviews...no tech publication i found places this at the top of best smartphones you can find...sometimes it's not even in the top 5 :)...
I am not hating or trolling. I have one good friend who actually has one of these (he will change soon to an Edge). I personally prefer phones that have good battery, camera and allow for customization. This phone obviously has none of that. That's why i did not choose an iphone...
I know the Note 4, S6, S6 Edge or even HTC M9 are a bit more expensive than this, but i for one think it is worth the money investing in something of higher quality with more freedom.
I asked this on another forum and i got some answer with the likes "iphone is perfection. it makes me feel like i belong." I couldn't believe, i almost threw in my mouth a little...hey, if you love a company so much, then humanity is most likely doomed....
I don't know why humans are buying other cheap android phones more than Apple
http://youtu.be/WFhIYblTwl0 Here is great iPhone 6 vs s6 edge speed test video, shows that only thing which matter is real life performance and also amount of cores doesnt matter.
Beginning of this video the guy was sure that S6 edge would win easily
Surprising part of that video was that iPhone 6 actually won multitasking part too.
I was surprised to see s6 edge asphalt 8 lags quite a lot, it's not even new game, very old actually.
Apple knows whats best for end customers. They sell you awesome products, they do not play marketing gimmicks.
Dual core is the most efficient design for most mobile apps to date. As the jump from single core to dual core gives you most gain. Even Intel low voltage processors also does the same thing, dual core i7 / i5.
This is evident in the benchmark scores. Look at the multi-core benchmarks for iPhone, and single core benchmarks of iPhone. You realise the score is nearly doubled. However for those octa core processors, its only abit less then 4 times.
And single core benchmarks (Which apps uses most of the time) is very very low on those octa core chips. Thats why bazing octa core processors need 2.5Ghz and yet lag once in a while.
As for games and graphics, iPhone comes with quad core graphics, thats why its smooth and surprisingly fast.
ReksaMF, 04 Apr 2015why the iPhone still use Dual Core Proccesor?Thats right proccesors of iphone is lower than other.but powerfull it More than others.
Sta-ko, 04 Apr 2015And i forgot.. DON'T be ridicules my 8 core C53 games flawlessly whit maly T760.Lol. Post back when you tried gaming on a real ad-droid phone. Even xperia SP blows A7 and A53 quad and octa core away, A53 is a laughable core no matter how you twist it or how many you add.

The funny little app that we are using in our phones doesn't need that much calculating power. Usually the phone runs on one or two cores... the 4 and 8 cores phones use 4 cores for heavy calculations,thats why 8 cored pfone have 4 cores on 1.7mz and 4 cores on 2mz usually they use the first 4 cores if they need more power they use the 2mz cores and in very rare cases 8cores.For gaming as in the PC you need good GPU for example if you play heavy game on i3 and on i7 whit the same GPU the difference will not be very much(if the i3 power will be enough for the game of course) So.. Iphone perform well in gaming and in general because in every iphone apple puts hi end GPU and very restricted IOS that's the hole secret.

Octacore Cortex A53 does well in benchmarks but not in real life usage, and has exceptionally bad gaming performance. The xperia SP with its two Krait cores were much faster than octacore phones, and iPhones are much faster than SP.
Mohamed, 04 Apr 2015I've been an Apple hatter for too long,i've never understood why people are buying a device li... moreI can relate, im a former apple hater also, now im not wasting money for non-apple gadgets anymore. It was tablets that opened my eyes to how bad ad-droid really is, iPad is in a class on its own, once i admitted that i soon after was able to see that iPhones are actually great also, at least compared to ad-droid they are amazing.
I've been an Apple hatter for too long,i've never understood why people are buying a device like an iphone,I never had an iphone before.But after i bought a Note 4 and compared the performance to an Iphone 6 i was blown away of how fast things are going on iphone compared to my laggy Note 4.That and the fact i'm still stuck on android 4.4.4 waiting for the 5.0 update to be more stable,i decided not to ever buy a Samsung device or Android att all and get a respectable and actual smart phone,An Iphone.
ReksaMF, 04 Apr 2015why the iPhone still use Dual Core Proccesor?Have you ever seen applications that use full adventage of a quadcore processor phone? plus the power efficiency is as important as the phone speed. Because
In the end you want your phone to last till atleast the end of the day incase you actually get a phonecall.
ReksaMF, 04 Apr 2015why the iPhone still use Dual Core Proccesor?Very simple. You cant expect 4 goats to do the work 2 horses can do. Each of Apples cores are big and powerful, and also power efficient, its like the phone equivalent of Intel Core i7.
ReksaMF, 04 Apr 2015why the iPhone still use Dual Core Proccesor?Because most of times mobile device only need dual core. Instead adding cores which device rarely uses, Apple have chosed to invest in fast single cores performance and that's working very well, iPhone 6 has fastest single core benchmark scores out there, thats why for example iPhone 6 is as fast as galaxy s6.
So With dual core Apple can already compete with those quad and octa core devices. And 6S very likely to going to be fastest device this year again because iPhone 6 already is fastest or among.
Anonymous, 02 Apr 2015I guess you never use much of Mac. All comments about Mac is either from a beginner Mac user. ... moreIm just gonna say i have my fair share of experience in what your saying.But still thats a big inconvience to most especially in a case that most users are arrogant and would just go around swingging talks saying that the brand sucks because of this and that.Unlike you and me and some that visit this site for entertainment we are a bit knowlegable and would actually want to learn how to convert files.But again though its still a big hastle to wait and convert a file and using another source to do so.

Its about balance, z3 and M9 has bad cameras and theres no denying it. Like with girlfriends, 100 years is bad and 15 years is bad while 20-25 is perfect. For cellphone camera the sweet spot is 8 to 16 mpix.

However this very website did a comparison between s5, s6, note 4 and iphone 6...guess which came last? And remember that the likes of z3 or lg or nokia flagships were not included.
The iphone 6 camera is at the bottom of the barrell in the current flagship climate and every respectable reviewer would tell you so.
But you are a fan of that iphone no matter what, right? Adorable...keep it going. I used to defend republicans for a while too...
