Chap1, 11 Jul 2017Ok,thanks,but my question was about performance(anyone who used or is using iphone more than 2... moreOk, I'll just grab my iPhone 5 and share my experiences
Note that it's a 16GB unit running iOS 10.3.1.
When I typed in the password, the unlock animation wasn't completely fluid. I redid it and it was fluid. Then many notifications came in because I didn't use it for a while. I open the settings app to see which software it is running. The opening animation, the submenu animation and the back swiping animation are all fluid. There is a little delay compared to my iPhone 7 when going into a sub menu, about 0.3 seconds, so you don't notice it if you don't compare it side by side. Going into the App Store, the animations are buttery smooth, but loading the main page takes a couple of seconds (like 5 secs). I go into Clash royale, but I have to download an update to use it. Downloading the update takes about half a minute, and another 5 seconds to install it. Loading the game takes a little more than 5 seconds, something like 8 seconds. Donating cards, reading new messages, everything is fast and fluid, but I notice that the phone starts to heat up a little bit (even though it's not as bad as with for example my Xperia M4 Aqua). I do a test battle, it's not exactly 60fps but pretty close, I guess 50fps. Swiping up the control center for the first time since startup takes 2 seconds to come up, but then it's smooth if I do it over and over. Same goes for notification center. Going into the widget page, it's not completely fast, I would tip 20fps, but using it is fluid again. Opening youtube and loading a video is fast once again. Scrolling through comments is usable, but not as much of a pleasure as doing it on my iPhone 7. Closing the same video is a little laggy, but closing the app is 60fps. Loading the newest weather information takes a second, using the app is fast without any lag. Camera app takes a second to load and a second to focus. Taking some pictures, the first 2 took a second, but the other ones were instant. Opening the photos, zooming in, scrolling through, all of that is no problem for it. Setting an alarm is instant. The phone kept being warm, but not hot like when I loaded clash royale.
So this is how an iPhone performs after 5 years with its last update. I could still imagine using it (like I did a few months ago). But every iPhone before iPhone 5 was laggy on its last update, except iPhone 3GS with iOS 6. So you can't be completely sure if the next iPhones will age that well again performance-wise, but I'm pretty sure as the iPhone 5 was 3 times as fast as the 4s and that's just a whole new level, and then the 5s came and it was twice as fast once again.

Bu... moreOk,thanks,but my question was about performance(anyone who used or is using iphone more than 2 years can answer me) ; is it really true that iphone is much faster than android or is it just a small difference in every day use; and even more important to me- everyone is saying how smooth and fluid Iphone is,much more fluid than any android! So,is this really true? Never lags? Even after longer period and updates?!

But as you can see, your phone doesnÂ‘t support any software higher than 5.1.1 (if I remember correctly), which means you donÂ‘t have the security if you donÂ‘t get security updates every month, and your phone basically has less features than the comparable iPhone 5s which will get some new features with iOS 11 and also got some with iOS 10 and iOS 9. And because Sony has to make different ROMs for every phone they have, they donÂ‘t have as much time to care about bug fixes, while Apple has one OS for every device (for example, iOS 10.3.2 for the iPhone 5 has the same build number as this software for the iPhone 7, itÂ‘s only lacking some features which you canÂ‘t get because of its old twch, like 3D Touch or background tracking for your steps because of missing co-processor) which also means it gets the updates timely. But it is great that you bought a flagship phone, mid range and low end phones are pure cr*p and outdated and out of support as soon as you unbox them.
AnonD-683403, 09 Jul 2017Get an a Samsung galaxy s7 because it has a display of 1440p and the iPhone has a meagre 720p ... moreNEver heard such cr*p from a fanboy desperately defending android. It´s obvious that iPhones get longer software support, you obviously didnÂ‘t ever use an iPhone. My iPhone 5 with iOS 10.3.1 still works great, only loading times are longer but thatÂ‘s just because it is a 5 years old phone. And it is still faster and much less laggy than the Xperia M4 Aqua from 2015. Please stop spreading bs. And even though the res is only 640p, it is still sharp because it is 4Â‘Â‘ in size. And compared to the Galaxy S3 and S4, itÂ‘s rivals, it gets software update while those didnÂ‘t get any update since years and they were just left behind in the dust to slowly and painfully die (which you could also say abput their users). This adds much more security to the phone, I wouldnÂ‘t dare to use an Android 4.2 device today. And if you compare them now, it is faster and the refined LCD doesnÂ‘t have oversaturated colors or bad image retention like the early AMOLEDs which looked really innatural (today, they are good because they are refined, but back in the day LCD just worked better). There shouldnÂ‘t be anybody listening to such data sheet f*gs.

I used an iPhone 5 for 5 years and now that the support is ending (and it also got dust under display and the lower volume button didnt work, but that´s my fault), I bought an iPhone 7 and I know that i will use it for 5 years or even more. In 2015, I bought an Xperia M4 Aqua but it was bs that I switched back to iPhone 5 (In the meanwhile it lost 70% of its value) so I will never do such things again.

the 32gb iPhone 6 is overpriced because it is new
mid range phones will never reach high end quality
so I would recommend iPhone 6s, iPhone SE and
if you definitely want an iPhone, but cheaper then an used 5s or 6 from eBay
or you can also wait until iPhone 6 32GB gets a reasonable price
other than that, you can also look out for high end android phones, they don't have to be the newest. The 1 year old flagships usually have great value, so now that would be Galaxy S7, LG G5, Xperia X Performance/XZ, Huawei P9, Honor 8, HTC 10, and things like that. If you live in India or China, I definitely recommend Xiaomi. Their phones usually have one of the best value you can find.
What I wouldn't recommend are Nokia phones, they are just driven by the hype about the old brand. And almost every other mid range phone doesn't have good value as well. Honorable mentions are just the Xiaomi like said before, and some Motos
Should I get the iPhone 6 32gb (2017) or go for mid range android phone?? Please help I need a unbiased reply.
Helloitse, 07 Jul 2017Is it worth buying iphone 6 in todays time Not that much, I would rather buy the iPhone SE, 6s, or a phone from another brand. The 5s and 6 are only priced good if you buy them used, because they aren't produced anymore so if you buy them new, you will have to pay a relatively high price.
Bablu, 08 Jul 2017In iphone6s, While using wifi my main balance getting detected. Is it possible to stop that?Your main balance? Do you speak about money? I can't imagine what you want to say.
pappu, 29 Jun 2017even xiaomi redmi 4 is far far better then this... in terms of its price and features... In iphone6s, While using wifi my main balance getting detected. Is it possible to stop that?
ravi, 05 Jul 2017Plzz tell me about the buttery life oof this i phone 6not great, but usable. You can also look at the GSMArena battery life rating at the bottom of the spec sheet and click it to compare with other phones. For example, the Xperia Z3 Compact is known as a battery beast with 101h while this has 61h. (I still would buy the iPhone because battery life is not everything)
