So indeed ios make better use of the hardware specs than android but that's why android it's an open fully customizable system, ios is made for simplicity and it's okay for people who don't want to deal with any other spec, but seriously apple is very disappointing, they supposed to make a big afford to their smartphone but the only difference was the screen, the hardware haven't change since iPhone 5, the same specs of some others smartphone from a year back since then, I guess people just keep buying it because they're too attached to the company or to feel part of a group
Taz26, 10 Sep 2014I accept ur point iOS doesn't need high cores or ram. But Apple is being a disappointment sinc... moreAndroid have one big defect (have more but in my opinion this is one of the biggest) audio delay compare to OS maybe android L change it.
The Fall of the iPhone...
I was just watching "jOBS" last night and I remember how he was adamant about NOT doing what other companies do, although they were successful. It's the "Apple 2" problem allover again. They have stopped innovating and they are just tending to market trends. This is really unfortunate... If you have Apple Stock, jump ship now. Even if they have a huge fan-base, this is the stagnation period, which will be followed by the downfall period... You'll see...
Perhaps what people don't understand about iPhone is.. it just works.. MOST people who own an iPhone don't really know what kind of CPU or how much RAM it has.. all they know is that it works and it works great. All that most iPhone users know is that, they own an iPhone and it's great! :)
Taz26, 10 Sep 2014I accept ur point iOS doesn't need high cores or ram. But Apple is being a disappointment sinc... moreAndroid got endless possibilities. I am sure you wanted to MENTION that with Android, the RAM clearing process is manual, while in apple its Automatic. Android is a lot bigger in size. (Try using an Android phone over 2 years). Secondly, with Android the risk of the phone affected because of virus is so damn high. I currently use Iphone 4s and it still runs faster and better than my friend's SGS4, NEXUS 4 AND 5.
Apart the fact that this is an Apple device, it doesn't bring into our lives anything that other phones haven't already brought.
Design is the only plus of the phone, as always.
Aaa... only dual core... and 1 GB RAM!!! While, S5 has 3 GB RAM... even there are octa-core phones
The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have amazing specs and will sell millions like all the previous versions - The "Mine is better than yours" iPhone against whichever phone will continue as before - BUT - I for one will be upgrading asap to the iPhone 6 (Not the plus - Too big) and would never be without my iPhone. I am saying this after having considerable experience of other phones including Samsung, Motorola, Nokia, HTC, and more and I have always returned to Apple. I have given up fighting it - iPhone RULES !!!
Joe, 10 Sep 2014I don't understand why people keep arguing about the ram and processor on the iPhones. IOS doe... moreI accept ur point iOS doesn't need high cores or ram. But Apple is being a disappointment since steve job left them. There's no innovation and ios it's still locked down like before. not customize able like android. android got endless possibilities. apple is now copying android.
don't whine about the CPU and RAM. Remember that iPhone 4s only has 512MB+800MHz CPU and it shoots a 1080p video. Galaxy S3 can shoot 1080p too but it needed a quadcore cpu..
I don't understand why people keep arguing about the ram and processor on the iPhones. IOS doesn't need a quad core and 4gb of ram to run up against android phones.imagine an iphone with the note 4 specs!!! Touch wiz will need 15 cores and 18gb of ram to catch up... So pls stop mentioning the rams....
