I think if iPhone allowed more customization and compatibility with other brands through bluetooth, wi-fi direct etc, and longer lasting batteries, they would be the best phone to have. But for now I think any high end android phone is much better. iPhone is boring.
You can tell those who have never owned an iDevice when they say Android is better. Being a guy who has owned both an Android phone and an iPhone, I can tell you flat out iOS is a far better OS than Android.
1. Security: Android 10 million malware vs less than 1000 for iOS. Plus even Google said "Android wasn't designed to be safe". Android's openness and their policy is removing apps/games only after someone is infected is part of the reason Android is so dangerous.
2. Apps/Games: iOS apps run smoother on iOS than Android and a lot of the best apps and games are either iOS exclusives or take months to show up on Android.
3. Speed and Stability: Ever wonder why Android phones have better specs than iDevices? Look for an Android phone with the same specs as an iPhone 5s and see how it performs compared to the iPhone 5s. You will cry with how slow it is. See Android needs better specs to run as smoothly as iOS, so the specs aren't really an advantage, they're actually essential.
Yes Android phones have bigger screens, better specs and more features. But specs don't count when it doesn't give Android an advantage (which it doesn't, it merely puts Android on level playing field). And features that aren't used also don't matter (doesn't matter if you have something if you don't use it). Android's only true advantages right now are screen size, cost, and battery. And screen size is soon an advantage Android will be losing. Battery will be improved on iPhone 6 an the Air but I don't think it will be on par with the Galaxy S5, LG G3 or the HTC One M8. And of course Apple will never make a $250-$350 unlocked iPhone, so Android will still dominate the mobile market because 90% of all Android users pay $350 or less for an unlocked phone.
Iphone 2 user, 15 Aug 2014Those of you who are lamenting over dual core and 8mp and battery have never used iphone befor... moreAndroid phones are easier to market because of how easy the specs are to understand eg people think quad core always beat dual core(the A7 was twice the score of the sp 600 last year in benchmarks and the real world performance was just as good).
Mega pixels are the same eg people think 13 mega pixel always beat 8 mega pixel(the 5s proved that wrong too).
Question is-How did the 5s beat the s5 in sales when the s5 is so easy to market?

AnonD-292833, 15 Aug 2014Iphone 6 have a same shape with iphone 5s,5 etc... nothing change. Only the size is changed. I... moreyeh but the sony z2 is a completly diffrent phone its like a tablet iphone is the perfect size and the perfect shape its the perfect phone
Iphone 6 have a same shape with iphone 5s,5 etc... nothing change. Only the size is changed. Its specs is still low and high prices.. I prefer sony z2 to this iphone.
Those of you who are lamenting over dual core and 8mp and battery have never used iphone before. No one is complaining over such things since all goes seamlessly. Iphone pictures are unique to other phone. Iphone is very fast on the browsing aspect. Battery very good. Go and check any forum persons have issues with their phones but as for iphones only 2 to 3 people with issues.
as always.. very good specs..
still non rem. bat???
still no sd card slot???
i really wonder why apple DIE-hard fans.. always support them.. with that useless releases..
Praveen Meena, 13 Aug 2014disappointed with this 6..improve the size and cpu process..better to go 4 htc m8 or xperia z2... moreThe cores will not be bad.My dear friend.Apple does something called optimization which can only be done when you control both hardware and software.No android manufacturer can achieve this because they don't own android and if they do they don't design or make the components for that phone.That dual core beats quad cores and octa core in both benchmarks and real world performance.That one gig of ram performs as good as 3 gigs of ram.That 8 mega pixel performed as good as the 13 mega pixel on the s4 and little behind the 16 mega pixel on the s5.
Samsung and other Android manufacturers treat you to gimmicks most of the time but they have the most features technically though.Apple has less features but I guarantee you those features will work 99.9% of the time.
Anonymous, 13 Aug 2014Fandroids will always agree with each other...Not really I'm both a Android and Apple guy I say the Apple IPhone 6 looks kinda like a copy of the HTC M8 and then I hate it how they upgrade almost everything apart from a better camera and battery display looks great but the design of the phone is just making me turned off about it eh i'll stick with the IPhone 5s for now
Everthing is fine but mAh is less, battery backup is the main probelm in Iphone and here in I6, it is 1850mAh.i wish the team should focus on battery backup.
Iphone is different to other mobiles I think, but the iPhone 6 is totaly different before iPhone'$ any have the new 4th generation a new 6th generation
Iphone is launching shortly.
