Hrs, which was great for a phone from last year. But iphone battery life is not the best out there. Windows phones now get around same endurance as iPhones from 2011. Ex:
IPhone 4s endurance=45hr. From 2011. Nokia lumia 930 endurance=46hr. From this year. Current Flagship. Android and apple rock!
AnonD-261017, 16 Sep 2014I agree with what some people are saying here, that specs on a sheet don't tell the full story... moreFinally someone with a little sense. Thank you for showing me that some people still do have a little sense rather than just believing whatever they are told. Android does have better specs. That's no argument. But if iPhones are "too much money" and "so far behind android" why are they still selling millions of phones in the first weekend of launch. Obviously there is something about iPhones that people love or else no one would buy them. Enough said.
AnonD-261017, 16 Sep 2014I agree with what some people are saying here, that specs on a sheet don't tell the full story... moreiPhones tend to have pretty good battery life; I own iPhone 5s that gets me through 2 days of moderate usage easily. Iphone battery life is not the best, but is very good. Iphone does not perform worlds better than android, their performance is about tic for tac, maybe iphone performs a slight bit better, but specs mean little. Honestly my opinion is that android and apple are both just as amazing; and windows SUCKS BIGTIME.
I agree with what some people are saying here, that specs on a sheet don't tell the full story, real life performance is what matters, as all my previous android phones (Galaxy S1, S3, S4) were always ahead of Apple in specs yet always performed worse. So having bigger numbers doesn't really matter at the end of the day if they aren't going to reflect in actual performance use.
But having said that, I believe Apple now are really ripping people off with the device cost vs specs for the iPhone 6. Major profits there. I think the way Apple chooses its specs is very different than others, they put "design" as their number 1 priority so if an extra 1 GB of ram is going to take more space and make the phone thicker while not really increasing performance, then it is not needed, a higher res screen is going to use more power/decrease the already bad battery life/cause the phone to get hot then it is not needed, higher clocked CPU will only cause more heat and is also not needed.
What android users don't realize is that iPhone/iOS already runs very smooth/even smoother than top end spec'd Android phones with its low specs. So I believe Apple doesn't feel the need to compete with the Android market in terms of hardware numbers. You can bash iPhone 6 for its specs on paper, but I'm sure it will be 100% smooth and lagless, and will multitask perfectly even with its 1GB ram, and if the photos that apple showed taken with the iPhone 6 are really that good (and not photoshoped) then they are repeatedly proving that its not just a numbers game, it's about refining quality.

dual core cpu with just 1.4 ghz
what does apple mean?Apple 1gb ram doesn't lag easily updates to latest iOS
Samsung s3 2gb ram not enough memory to upgrade to kitkat ....
Apple 1gb ram doesn't lag speedy just as fast as galaxy s5 yet s5 requires 3gb ram to run smooth...
Sigh people don't understand technology now days
AnonD-219632, 15 Sep 2014Hahaha.Even 6 inch phablet is more pixels than Iphone 6 & 6 plus. Not up to date. My Nexus... moreYour only argument is the spec sheet. Wait until the review comes out before you judge the phone. We don't know how the phone performs yet, so see how it performs before you judge. That applies to any phone. You can't say something is good or bad before you find out its performance. There are many phones that perform worlds better than other really high spec'd phones out there. Ex: sony xperia z2 performs better than the LG G3, though in most regards the g3 is higher spec'd. Just an example of how a phone's numbers on a sheet of paper affect real life performance mildly. You don't need a 4K screen at 1,100 ppi, 150 mpx camera, 50 core 2770 GHz processor, 1,000,000,000 GB of RAM to operate well. Btw I like android just as much as apple, and windows phones suck BIGTIME! And the two years behind argument is invalid because iPhones tend to perform just as well as any flagship out there. Judge a phone by its performance, not by specs. Applies to android & windows phones.
this phone features ar too cheap,even my previous phone,xperia s 26i wch was made in 2012 coms wit 12MP,1.5 dual core nd 1G RAM.I tink IPhone 6 shud av been made in 2011.lol
All these mindless drones, you've never used the phone, you're prejudice trash. And yes, I am a hypocrite, thank you.
This is ridiculous. The hardware is extremely low. Cheap phone which is sold as a expensive one. We may not need a 40 MP camera like on Lumia (although it would be nice), and octacore CPU like other phones, but at least some nice displays (some OLED not cheap IPS LCD). Add something to that phone to real worth those money.
AnonD-306426, 15 Sep 2014although they have upgrade until ios8 they still can't defeat android 4.4 kitkat speedAre you serious? or are you out of mind?
AnonD-306132, 12 Sep 2014All those so depressed with the iphone 6, what you want from an iphone?well for a start they may want an sd card slot, to be water resistant, some more megapixels. Not just the same they already have with the iPhone 5... to sum up, something worth the price apple is pretending. :P
