After reading the comments, I see there are lot of Apple and Android fanboys here.
I would like to tell something.
Every one is saying android is slow, may be its slow for low spec, low end devices. But, the premium range products like Nexus, Moto X, HTC One etc.. are never slow
I am not saying Apple is a crappy phone and all. Its like, the main highlight of the Apple phones are their IOS. I see it as a disadvantage, may be I like to tweak my android. If I would ever buy an Iphone, it would be for my granny, cos there's not much to do other than what the Apple provide. Its like a JAIL. That's why the "JAIL BREAK" exist.
Apple was dominating the mobile market because of their premium price. That scenario is slowly changing. Because lots of premium android and windows phones are being launched with almost same price.
And when comparing the prices to such premium devices like G3 etc..., I wouldn't say Apple is too costly.
I was expecting sapphire glass. I am not comparing the Ram and Processor with android, cos OS would be more optimized to the hardware .
There is something else. Everyone loved apple for the small sized phone, and going for a 5"+ is a big fall. I am feeling the absence of Steve Jobs...
I would say there are much more cooler features like OTG, Expandable Slot, High Resolutions, etc.. in hardware side and some features like trying different OS, Rooting, Xposed, etc.. in software side for android..
And when it comes to Iphone, there is not much variety to choose. Like, Its 6 or 6 plus. In case of other phones we have a wide variety. It means there are lots of thing to choose between.
I have met a lot of iphone users. Most of them are rich less techy guyz.. so i wont complain. :P
Rohit-Choudhury, 09 Sep 2014200+ apps on Nexus 4..Are you sure this dsn't slow the device? I have about 200 apps on samsun... moreit could slow it down a bit. the more you have on the phone the harder the processor has to work to run everything. plus the amount of ram on the phone is usually around 1-2gb, having 200 apps will take up all of that memory unless you quit all the apps you dont use. like on iOS when you double click the home button, you can swipe to exit or quit the app. doing this can open up ram to speed up the phone. so in my opinion and you dont have to believe me if you want, delete the apps you rarely use. this way you will speed up your phone and clear up space for other things.
Anonymous, 10 Sep 2014I think iphones does not lag because of the 1)flash storage 2) IOS 3) the low ppi which means ... morethe only reason why Iphone run smoother than android because iphone os is set to do less, process less, provide limited service, and only do little job, that's why it can run smoother. if Samsung do the same, then u will see a serious outrun there.
Mk, 09 Sep 2014I just have to have this phone...128GB is goin for less than $600...since when did iphone beco... moreSee? This is one of the reasons I hate apple fans, they think the rest of the world doesn't have an iPhone because we are 'poor'.
I have a Lumia 1520, and it's perfect for me. Better specs, not so overpriced and works FLAWLESS.
I don't hate apple products, I think they are good and but a little overpriced; I just can't take the people who thinks it's better just because they can afford it.
FID, 09 Sep 2014Great spec but don't like the design, looks more like a traditional Samsung Galaxy. Where went... moreTotally agree with you. For the images I have saw I don’t think I’m going to buy one. I think almost any smartphone will do all the same job for what they are build. So, I buy the smartphones for their form or shape, as I do with my cars. iPhones, 4 to 5s, have unique designs, elegant, totally different from anything else. They are a masterpiece of engineering with their unique design; only HTC One/M7 compares. Is there any other smartphone that can stand alone without holding it as this iPhones? I think Apple designers lost the point. Apple’s new device is too tall, maybe not too wide, and also, heavier for my personal taste. Where are the chamfered edges that make it so beautiful. Motorola with their Moto X is about the same wide as the new iPhone 6, but only a little higher than the 5s and they got a display of the same 4.7". Couldn't’ they do the same or better? It seems they couldn't. Sorry; I was,was, again, was to buy one with 128GB.
The same happened to the Porsche 930/ Turbo.
I don't have one YET so I can't say anything about it. Everyone can see the specs and judge what they like in their phone. I personally buy a phone to be a PHONE!! I drive professionally so when Galaxy came out with the Gear watch I went for it so I could talk and text hands free while driving. MISTAKE!!! The gear worked fine and the Note 3 I bought as the compatible phone was a great tablet. The problem was it is a lousy phone. In any kind of fringe area it dropped calls regularly. Took it back for a replacement and the new one did the same thing. My old 4S did not drop calls in the same areas. They put a new card in it and it still would drop 1 to 3 calls a day. Finally I gave up and demanded a I phone exchange and got one. 5s is now my phone and in the 3 months I've had it less dropped calls than one day with Samsung. I liked the bigger screen of the Note 3 so as soon as the big screen 6 is available I will have one and the watch to go with it!! Oh also Siri kills every assistant you can download with android. If you use it to play with assistant may be fine but ask it any question to actually get information and they are all lost. Siri gives an answer nearly every time and if she doesn't have the answer she does a web search so you can choose there. APPLE RULES!! That's why Samsung commercials all have an I phone in them for comparison. They know it.
Rohit-Choudhury, 09 Sep 2014200+ apps on Nexus 4..Are you sure this dsn't slow the device? I have about 200 apps on samsun... moreIf u want good performance then u have to shell more money on android....samsung core is low end device for small tasks....nexus devices on othr hand are designed for hewby tasks with to notch hardware...
dhanudada, 09 Sep 2014plz dont expect from apple for big specifications ever they need only a good looking phone . a... moreSo your are saying that the only reason people buy I phones is because they are iPhone and want it to show off to people even though they are crappy? Sounds about right tbh hahah.
And quad core, 13MP camera, and 2gb of ram will be so underpowered in 5 years hahahahhahahaha
Apple what have you done? This is what I would expect to be in competition with the latest android phones: 16+MP rear camera, 5MP front camera (higher quality selfies? Haha), 2k or 4k screen not a 'retina' display which makes it sound amazing but quite the opposite truthfully, 5 inch display, 2 or 3 GB of ram, android L..... Oh sorry iOS 8, 3000MaH battery, USB 3 connectivity (apple's 'lighting' cable isn't really that lightning fast tbh), quad core 2 GHz processor or something similar, 4G/LTE/3G, NFC (about time), Bluetooth 4, b/g/n/ac WiFi, etc.
Seriously I know that this would turn people from android to iOS and that is hard to say as I am an android user, but I believe it is true. Why on earth would people want so rubbishy specs for? And don't say iOS doesn't need it and android does need more because its laggy because android doesn't use very much ram at all if you've actually used one, phones like the Note 3 only have 3 GB because its there if you need it.
Rant complete haha
