Adith, 25 Mar 2016The iPhone may look weak on paper but a true tech geek will know that the apple A9 chipset is ... moreWell, let me tell you that I am a "true geek" and most of what you said is rubbish.
If you're talking about single tasking, yes, the iphone does a very good job. However, the other SoC manufacturers are quickly catching up. There was a time it wasn't close between iphone and the other chip manufacturers. Now, with the 2016 chips, I think the difference in terms of performance in single core is less than 10%.
If you do multi-tasking on a phone the iphone sucks. The more apps you have running in the background the more it sucks absolutely.
Graphics? The main reason it performs better on graphics is because of the lower pixel count, not due to the GPU.
The camera is second rate in terms of hardware and tries to make up for it with software.
I won't get started on the overall hardware and software quality, design and testing. They've been horrible since the iphone 4, with an assortment of engineering and manufacturing issues. Apple has the most extensive developer beta program in the mobile industry and they STILL have 4-6 "patches within 2 months of a major x.0 release...and this is a premium device giving a premium experience? Not to me.
You want value for the money and quality? Let's exclude Samsung for the moment. You have HTC and Sony (excepting the M5 - it sucks) and in 2016 you can add LG to the list. These companies offer phones that have a wide assortment of features, basic geek feature like access to the file system. From there you can add features like SD cards, waterproof, dustproof, removable batteries, stereo speakers, FM radio, IR blaster etc. etc. Most of what you could ever want is there.
HTC even provides you with the tools to unlock the boot loader and install any ROM you want and their own kernel source as well. Now that is a company that supports a True Geek. Do you jailbreak? Do you unlock? If not, you're just a toddler in a playpen with an iphone. You aren't allowed out of the playpen because Apple knows most people can't be trusted with that much responsibility. They'll end up going to AppleCare and cry, "Mommie, my iphone broken and I can't fix it."
True Geeks like to look under the covers for intellectual curiosity and to tinker for a variety of reason. True Geeks don't just take a smartphone out of the box and say, "this is perfect". That's not a True Geek; that's a poser.
akkizinta, 22 Mar 2016yes you are right....but what i cant get is why these apple fanboys keep blabbering about soft... moreI believe it's because most the people don't have the options to mess around with the phone configuration as much with the iphone as you do with Android. Based upon what I've seen, I'm convinced most the people lack the discipline to manage the apps on their Android phone.
To put it another way, imagine if the iphones all came out of the box jailbroken and had cydia and other 3rd party tools that would allow you to tweak the iphone in the same ways you can tweak Android phones. I am sure you would see the iphone users creating the same mess they created on Android phones, by overloading the hardware.
So for most people, the iphone is great for them because it's the "nanny state" in the mobile phone world: you need to protect them from themselves for their own good.
my phone. its defiantly much better then the lg leon. sure, its overpriced for whats esstiently the same thign as the iphone 6. thr screen size it great! ive had a couple of issues already, the battery drains too fast and some of the built- in apps crash. overall, nice phone. espically the gold color!

Mohamed, 22 Mar 2016Awesome awesome phone dont compare this with lacky androids touch id what a speed damn good fo... moreIts fabulous phone m using it from last 1 month no one can beat this phone ever its worlds no 1 handset at the moment !!!
Which phone is better in terms of camera performance ? I love photography as well as some social apps. Should I go for iPhone 6s plus or Samsung S7 Edge ? How can we know through the specifications regarding the camera performance of a smartphone ? Give me a better option of the two. Thanks.....
waqas, 18 Mar 2016I want to buy mobile Which is the best smart phone in the world???I think u can go for an iPhone and one android phone, I use note 5 and iPhone 6s, both of them are good phones.
The iPhone may look weak on paper but a true tech geek will know that the apple A9 chipset is the most powerful mobile chipset yet!! It's not the number of cores to be looked into. In that case the Lenovo k4 note can beat the iPhone or the S7. Hence, iPhone is a very powerful phone. A dual core processor is enough for Apple to make it's phone powerful enough to compete in the market. (People who think I'm exaggerating, please feel free to watch some speed and power test videos on YouTube)
in asia the price to expansive same like samsung..not all people effort to buy this..when its come to asia market example malaysia the price like your 2 month salary in here...and what i think i dint should waste my money to buy this or samsung just using phone price that u can effort as long the phone suit n works nice for u..
Zaheer, 05 Mar 2016Dear bro, tell me when s7 has not yet released how your freind bought it .its going to hit 11 ... moreI just hate it when people like the one you replied to post lies in their comments just to prove their point or just to show that apple is better than others..they are like my friend bought an XYZ phone and gave it back for iphone.. or my son bought a phone or even my late great grandfather bought a XYZ phone and gave it back for iphone.. its ridiculous.. and they dont even realise that once you buy a phone and register its IMEI number to your name, you cant give it back lol
Technerd, 21 Mar 2016S7 all the way get more for your moneycant be more true.. basically any high end android device.. paying the same amount of money or even more on a dual core device i.e. iphone 6s is a pity
I wonder how people have the guts to pay around $800 on a dual core device.. pathetic
I will not buy another iphone unless I can help somewhere. ATT sure does not know how to help.
Awesome awesome phone dont compare this with lacky androids touch id what a speed damn good force touch superb battery coooool blindly buy this superb very good love the rose gold color
Anonymous, 19 Mar 2016Problem is that Apple has more problems with their hardware and software engineering than any ... moreyes you are right....but what i cant get is why these apple fanboys keep blabbering about software experience on iphone...for me its the only let down....hardware wise iphones are actually good... im not an android or galaxy fanboy...i love innovative technologies...nd i believe if something is good...its good...no matter apple or samsung or LG...i regret buying iphone...should have gone for nexus 6p...
Anonymous, 19 Mar 2016I think you got a Defective Phone........For me No Issues,.....buddy my phone worked perfectly for a week or so....as soon i updated the phone ...these issues started happening...so i guess these are software issues...and i checked on some few other forums...other people are also facing these kind of issues...
