Apple's approach to updating their devices is based on the way carriers set their contracts. Customers are tied to 2yr contracts so an iPhone 5 owner upgrades to an iPhone 6 and iPhone 5s upgrades to iPhone 6s. From the view of these individuals the devices they are upgrading to is significantly better than the one they owned previously. That whole we only give u the features u need nonsense is just that...Nonsense. They are making the most of the markets structure, nothing else

It was a good phone at the time then I bought the Samsung Galaxy S4 and thought that was much better than the 4s. I am now on the s6 and that's way way better than the iPhone 6 I had before that.Apple phone's are ok but in my opinion you are getting blinded by the Apple Logo more so than how good the phone really is.
nicky, 25 Sep 2015How? Because Apple is a cult, called Appleology.You wouldn't call the two year old A7 chip cutting edge these days, would you? Yet, pray tell me, how many Android flagships can beat its Geekbench score of 1360 for single core?

When you pay the price for an iPhone or iPad, that's your ticket to the amazing ecosystem that is Apple. In other words, Apple doesn't sell you products, it tries to get you in their ecosystem. Movies, books, music, videos, apps, podcasts...everything seamlessly connected across all of your Apple devices, available at the touch of a button. Device integration is perfect. Ever used a Mac and an iPhone together? Hardware is next to art and Apple Care is beyond compare (I actually had my out-of-warranty 5S replaced for free).
Before screaming," Oh, they cost so much money!", you should realise that they're every bit worth it.
You sound like the kind of guy who'd search around for pirated movies, cracked apps and free music. I bet that's why you 'love' Android. Actually, I could only come up with that excuse for owning an Android device.
If sticking to anti piracy measures makes Apple a bad guy, so be it.

They have puny CPUs and pathetic GPUs. Their UI is weird and is a blatant copy of iOS. They're cheaper than iPhones, yes, but they are nowhere near as good as an iPhone.
Guys please do know the architecture of apple and by the way I am a android user. Ios don't require java so less ram is enough for apps and tasking. Ios is designed in such a way that single core performance plays a vital role, so it has excellent score for single core test but it don't perform well in multicore test. Ios consumes less amount of battery compared to Android. to put it fair apple don't seem to be innovative but it gives a fluidic performance which cannot be completely worth for its price as it lacks some of the important features

Anonymous, 25 Sep 2015come back when you understand each phone their eco systems operating systems and how they work... moreYou mention how Apple will always eat Android yet apple did a you turn on never producing a phone with a screen bigger than 3.8" as the idea of large screen phones is ridiculous", They use Samsung manufactured Retina Dislays and Android's GUI (or are you going to state that Apple's GUI has been poached by Android), Android is a good 6 months if not a year ahead - in production time - of Apple. 3D Touch with layered menu access has been in Custom ROMs forAndroid devices since last year, look at NEXT 3D launchers and see Apple's next "Revolutionary Advancements".
Design-wise Apple is flawless and others will copy their aesthetics but to hail them as the All Conquering Gods of Smartphone Technology is only based on your FanBoy love of al things Apple.
I'm very impressed with the 3D touch feature. Photos on the phone is better but not as good as the S6 from what I've personally tested. Video however is better on the iPhone, very smooth and clear. It has all that you expect that comes from an iPhone, not very game changing or innovative besides from the new 3D touch technology. Little too pricey for what it really gives though.
The only area where iOS excells over flagship Android is security. I have to give it to Apple on this one, they do make operating systems which are slightly more secure; hence why most iphone buyers tend to have a big appetite for smaller children...
they are still working on second generation specs....How could they live with that?.....Even Huawei became better then Apple, why do they stick with such stupid specs, they are actually worse than Microsoft.....

How Apple can beat all the android high spec phones every year with that so called mid range specs?
Maybe you need to look deeper..

Everything between those two are just a complete different so it's pointless if you guys just keep thinking androids are better than apple or vice versa. Both of them have noticeable pros and cons, variety of design, build qualities and not to mention prices as well. It all returns to your personal preference. I like android phones better than iphones but doesn't mean I say that iphones are bad. I even applaud their efforts for not bringing up ridiculous specs like octa-core processor or 4gb ram but still able to make a decent phone that lives up to its name.

Since it might ruined it just like the Note 5 even with 4gigs it agressively kill unused apps/iddle ap which kill its multitask function Idk why sammy did that, but to save battery i think ,tell me if im wrong but ive seen it thou and it did happen ,perhaps my note was one of a deffect product or sammy does aggresively do that
And either way i reccomend you guys to not judge phone by its benchmark score ,since highest benchmark doesnt mean its a better phone
