Then please tell me why Google doesn't update S3 and the Note 2 to Android 5.1.1 Lollipop? Wasn't Android Lollipop designed to work on phones with as low as 512MB RAM? Both these devices have much more than that and have quad-core CPUs, much higher cores than the poor iPhones which still have dual core architecture. Your comment defies your own logic.
Your OS is full of loopholes and flaws (iOS is not flawless either), but to cover up for the shortcomings of the OS, you guys keep on bragging about number of cores and increasing RAM sizes. And just to point out the truth about your 3GB RAM on the S6, 1.9 GB of it is taken up by system files and can never be freed? So you are left with a little over 1GB RAM only. Now tell me how is your blazing fast and most advanced S6 any different from iPhone 5s which was released in 2013 and have only I gig of RAM.
And as someone else replied on your post, following the sluggish performance of iOS 8.1 on the ageing 4S, Apple released a special build of iOS 8.1 only to make the phone much faster. Apple has promised a special build of iOS 9.1 for 4S and the iPad 2 this year as well. Now comment on this.

Following every new iOS update, almost 75-80% users are on page, meaning they run the same version of iOS. What's even better is that only one version of iOS is optimised for 3.5" iPhone 4S, 4" 5s and now the 4.7" and 5.5" iPhones plus the iPads (mini and 9.7" alike) and iPods, Apple doesn't need to push different firmware versions for different hardware unlike most Android OEMs do to address bug fixes following software updates. This just shows how much Apple is committed to providing an exceptional user experience across its entire range. And yes, I read someone comment on this as well; last year Apple did release a special firmware update just for the 4s following the infamous update of the same to iOS 8.1. This year as well, Apple has promised a special build of iOS 9 for the ageing 4S and iPad 2 and original iPad mini.

Watch it on your 4k tv? No, i don't think anyone could afford that 4k tv. Apple make me laugh. What to do with the 4k video other than upload them on youtube and only Xperia Z5 Premium can watch them in full 4k display.

Google is NOT the one that is forces customers to upgrade their phones so they will have the last ANdroid. The Nexus devices are all up to date, ask a fellow NExus 4 owner to cofirm that. Is those greedy mother f;ers from Samsung that are not updating to the last version of android so people would buy their new handsets. So yeah, my Nexus 5 is running the last version of Android!

Did you know apple rolled out an update for all 4s devices last year that made ios8 faster only for the 4s? And it actually did make it smoother, but pls.... Forgive apple for trying to release updates for a 2011 model phone. You find people still using 4s. Mean you won't find a person using a 2011 android device.

Not only that, even if the phone updates to the newest version of android, that phone is full of glitches that can't be fixed because it wasn't meant to be on that version, and android is too busy to roll out fixes to fix xxxxx version of android on xxxx device. Your stick with a crappy phone and in order to fix it the user needs to hard reset the phone back to the old version of android, lose their contacts, or buy a new android phone. Only like what ? 10 percent of users are on the latest version of android???

Agh85, 11 Sep 2015Another thing which Fandroids must admit is that Google kind of forces you into buying new exp... moreYou know the problem with rolling out 9.1 to the 4S?, most of them can't handle it or have the space to store it. What Google does makes more sense, why keep making you have a newer and newer operating system if the phone can't handle it?
Another thing which Fandroids must admit is that Google kind of forces you into buying new expensive phones every two years. Usually Google has a policy of supporting all its phones for 1.5-2 years. What does this lead to? S3 owners are stuck at Kitkat (I guess that was the last update); Note 2 users are at JB or Kitkat (I'm not sure on this one) and HTC M7 will never receive Lollipop officially (customs ROMs are different). So your expensive gadget doesn't get love from the respective OEM or Google after this two years. Most Fandroids will argue that they change their phones anyway after 2 years; but still cnt take away the fact that even Google and the particular OEM stop supporting your favourite phone for which the OEM charged you significantly.
On the contrary, look at Apple. They are providing iOS 9.1 to all iPhones down to 4S (came out in 2011; 4 years back) and iPad 2 (again late 2011). I dnt say that these devices will perform outstandingly well with the new update. In fact it may be possible that perform degrades like iOS 8.1 did to iPhone 4. But still it's Apple who truly cares about you and your hard earned money,
Want to more about how Apple makes its customers feel good? Back in 2012 May, my friend started having issues with his 4S, which was under Apple warranty. He walked into an Apple Store and got another iPhone 4S; may have been refurbished, but tell me which other OEM does that.
Plus there's the problem of rolling out an Android update in phases; you may need to wait for 2/3 months to receive the update. All iOS and Mac updates are rolled out to qualifying iDevices globally on the same day at the same time.
In the end, when people spend a fortune on an iPhone, they dnt just pay for the phone. They spend for the package of some great quality apps (almost all developers develop their apps for the iOS first, classic example being Instagram which started off as an iOS exclusive) and great service from Apple.

Well, iPhones perform generally faster than android becos they push low resolutions... the 3d touch on iphone 6s is air view on samsung.
Great device perfect size! Its very fluid but the battery downsize is not good decision. Pity that 6s plus is oversized.
