I've been an android user for 4 years now and I can say that iPhone is a descent phone. The display is very clear and what I like about it is that you can't just simply download things or unnecessary apps to your phone. iPhone is the best.
You know to each their own but personally I think every iPhone is a rip off. Here are 15 reasons why I wouldn't waste my money on an iPhone:
No smart dialing
Poor performing loudspeaker (nobody wants to miss calls, especially important ones)
Bluetooth doesn't support file transfers
No Flash support in the web browser
No true multitasking for all applications
No file transfer over Bluetooth or USB Mass Storage mode
No microSD card slot
Has unimpressive screen to body ratio
Too dependent on iTunes for loading multimedia content
Protruding camera lens makes the phone wobble if you don't have a case on
Camera is still merely 8MP four years in a row
NFC functionality limited to Apple Pay
No 4K video and video sound is still mono
No enhanced resistance to liquids or dust
As somebody once said an iPhone is a phone, web browser and an ipod. It's NOT a smartphone which even Eldar Murtazin from Mobile-Review blatantly said.

Anonymous, 02 Feb 2015whats so good about htis phone it can do wat any other phone can but y is the price soooooo hi... moreThese are the only phones running iOS. Other phones have no such OS. We all know iOS gets updates fastest, best performance games / webbrowsing. blah blah. But thats not the only reason iPhone sell.
Maybe its because iPhone have the best specs, whereby all other flagship tries time and time again to compare and joke around. But no, thats not the only reason iPhone sell.
Yet Maybe its because iPhone shows premium, whereby only the rich or well to do can afford it. But no, thats not the only reason iPhone sell.
See. I never said iPhone 6 or iPhone 5S or iPhone 4. Because it never really matters. The phone is designed by artist, not by engineers. A balance of software and hardware. Each is a King of its Era.
A phone which i can call MY phone, its soul lives on from my first iPhone 3GS all the way to now iPhone 6, improved and enhanced. People see a hardware, i see it as my companion.
Some people say its the syncing from iTunes that migrate a iPhone to another that have this effect. But not only that, the familiar settings of the OS, the placement of the elements, how the apps are designed all plays a role, everything changes but stays uniquely the same, makes you feel at home.
Just look at the history of iPhones, from the very first one all the way to the current one, you can see the same detail, what makes iPhone an iPhone.
Sure, there are phones that pushes the boundary like Note 4 or Edge, which exciting new features. But then again, its as alien.
So you ask me whats the difference from Apple and Samsung?
In simple words.
Samsung sells me a piece of hardware. A hardware i can easily shift to LG / Xiaomi or even HTC depending on cost price and offers.
Apple sells me a sense of belonging. Something that cannot be replaced.
You can give me a iPhone 4S, and i still enjoy use it like i would like iPhone 6 so long as my data is restored on it. I bet most android users will feel like plague when they are using S5, and suddenly told to use S3 or S2.
whats so good about htis phone it can do wat any other phone can but y is the price soooooo high
Sold mine iPhone 6 after 3 months of usage. Shifted to Samsung note edge since past 2 weeks. I must say that if u really talk about innovation then note edge is the best. Share anything, save anything on the spot unlike iphones where u need to depend on your itunes software on the pc.
The only good thing u find about iphones are that they wont lag in most of the cases and gives a premium look in your hands.

Apple make money, people love it. Its quailty made. Performance and a beauty... moreI use that platform. I have an iMac and I like it. On phones it's bland, restrictive and non-innovative.
I am one of those people that has some of that personality.
- I like having this grumpy widget app on my phone that tells me to f off if i don't like miserable weather.
- I like uninstalling all the uneccessary apps and replace them with the ones i use.
- I like taking baths and reading an e-book or watching film without fear of dropping the phone into the water, because it will survive.
- I like watching a youtube video at the top of the screen and reply to my friends without having to get out of the youtube app.
- I like turning my phone face down if i want it muted when someone phones me and i don't want to answer.
- I like taking pictures of the highlands in the north of scotland where if i zoom on something i can actually see more than a dense pixel spot.
- I like using my phone to remote control my TV, my bluetooth speakers and believe or not, my iMac too.
- I like adjusting the height of my keyboard and customize where certain keys go so it's easiest for me to write
- I like having a small notebook on my second homepage where i can write with my finger a quick idea or thought
- I like that i can have as many films/books/music on my phone for the price of £10-15 without having to pay an extra £100 for a 64 or 128 gb phone
- I like filming some cute moments with my girlfriend which i can then watch in high quality and knowing that if my hand was shaking too much, i can still see what i filmed because the phone i use has an image stabilizor which comes with flagship phone for over one year now.
The list could go on. The fact that there is a dude on these boards that keeps on bringing up the fact that i sold my iphone (which was a gift) as a disrespectful act, shows the thought process of someone who uses iphones. Someone who values materialism and branding over actual innovation and quality. I should perhaps kept the iphone like an egotistical maniac and not use it (2 weeks was enough, trust me...it's far from complex or innovative), instead of making someone else happy out there by selling my iphone in mint condition with £100 less than in the applestore. Trust me, my family does not care. I used the money off the phone towards paying my tuition fees, which my uncle was happier with than me holding on to a phone i won't use.
Enjoy your iphone mate x

The teenage that hate Apple so much that he sold his iphone gifted by his uncle.
He believed that all Apple users are zombies and everyone that buys iphone are stupid. And his on a world crusade to degrade and hurt all justin bieber, twilight, apple, coke and crazy frog fans. Why even try i wonder.

Bland and non innovative with just a couple weeks of usage?? Come now.. It could only mean u started using iphone with only hate and malice in your mind. And refusal to learn or adapt to a new platform.
What are the rumours about iPhone 6S? What can be better? Battery is one thing.
