I have been an iphone user for awhile now but when my contract ends I will not be getting another.
The camera is only 8mp... That's pathetic. The Sony Xperia z2 has a 21mp camera.
The battery life on Iphones is also terrible. I don't want to charge my phone 2-3 times per day. I shouldn't have to either.
The thing with upgrading your iphone is that the layout and the apps stay the same. It takes away from that excitement of getting a new phone because everything is the same once you upload all your apps and photos from the last backup.
Sony and Samsung both have water resistant features as well. One drunken night I dropped my iphone in the toilet and flushed (so you can imagine it was really screwed). When I used my phone insurance I got sent a "refurbished" phone and had lost all photos since the last backup. If it was water resistant this wouldn't have happened.
Apple needs to get back in the game and make a phone that can actually compare to Samsung and Sony and HTC instead of releasing this piece of rubbish.

It smoked all comers in 80 percent of the benchmarks, 1080p off screen btw so no more excuses from the Android camp. Nothing could come close overll.
Even the companies that have been caught cheating at benchmarks (Samsung, HTC etc), could do nothing about the raw power of the A7.

The 5s got beaten at every benchmarks shortly after its release... and no don't try that "orange vs apples" comparison with the graphic benchmarks, if you want to be thorough, logic and unbiased, all benchmarks must be run at the same resolution ( 1080p offscreen is what you must look at ). After all you don't see desktop GPUs being compared at different resolutions don't you? That's what is called performance. Now if you want to talk about experience, that's entirely subjective and hence inherently biased, so logically speaking relative to performance its irrelevant.
Really camera still is 8 megapixels? Still can't surf web and talk at the same time with Verizon I'll be getting the note 4 apple is terrible. If your going to increase the size of the phone increase the megapixels as well. Apple will never catch up with Samsung.
