Maybe if u guys stopped blindly worshipping..finding excuses to defend faults n start giving feedbacks demanding improvements of its drawbacks..they will provide techs thats worth the price!
For devices like s3 n z1..atleast they had sd cards..gorgeous screens with high resolution..stereo audio.n droids been having downclocking n other step down options for power saver modes..as option..facilitating longer life..not a forced "feature" to live with. Whole world knows apples' henious deeds over the years.they aplogised n published as well..still u find d will to cover tat up..no wonder u guys r called iSheep! Btw..no droids don't need to chng battery every now n then to function properly although uses same Li ion batteries. I wont even get started on the features n functionalities of droid as its ur personal choice to pay more for less n i got no right to say..ur money.ur preference(but 1200$ for being par with y2k nokia' closed n limited features n functionalities)wake up or stay stupid coz grey matter(S)

My iPhone 5 still clocks at 1.3 GHz, same as 2012 with iOS 6, same Geekbench scores, performance is even better in some areas because of better optimization over the years and faster animations. And all that plus the hundreds of features added with every new major iOS release, and app support for basically every app available on the App Store (except fortnite, but that's a kids game anyways). Compare that to the Galaxy S3, also from 2012. People laugh at you if you use that phone today. It's slow like a snail and has an android version from like 5 years ago, no app support at all, security is also 5 years old and every online ad can hack it.
The iPhone batteries are just as durable as the ones in other phones. I used my battery for 4 years, since I bought it, and it doesn't last as long, naturally, but that's it.
I also have an Xperia Z1 Compact, and that one had an old battery. It wasn't able to hold a charge, and what you meant was the "throttling" which can be disabled anyways. But unlike an iPhone with a faulty battery, the Xperia with a faulty battery just shut off and lost the whole charge under load, which was for example filming or updating an app, so basically it was unusable.
Anyways, I changed the battery, as you should do with an iPhone that throttles, as this means its battery is defect, which can happen with li ion batteries over the years, and it's fine now. And if you do this to an old iPhone 6, it will run like day one as well, especially with iOS 12, which does not, like you said, slow down the iPhones, but instead does make them faster.
Anonymous, 17 Aug 2018I have an iPhone SE and I want a new phone. Which should I pick? Galaxy S9 or iPhone 7? I know... moreIs it because of the screen size? Because if I were you, I would keep the SE as it's still a great phone. Decide:
Were you happy with iOS? Then get an iPhone 7 and save the hassle of switching to a completely different OS.
Were you not happy with iOS? Then try a Samsung of a friend or in a store and decide if it feels better to you.
Price-to-performance-wise, the S9 wins, but that's no use if you don't like the OS because then you also won't like the whole phone.
I have an iPhone SE and I want a new phone. Which should I pick? Galaxy S9 or iPhone 7? I know their pros & cons but I cannot choose. Which would you buy, and why?
Ali, 13 Aug 2018I request you to please replace the battery of your mobile. It will cost you less than $10. it has been fixed, i just did reset settings. and the battery back to normal.

pay top dollar for an outdated device with less features n specs only to get 5years of updates n services only if u keep changing ur battery more frequently than u reset ur device..nice..n in 5years..let me know how smooth r the heavy workload apps/games doing for ur 5year old iphones interms of compatibility..given the rapid app development of new techs based on VR requiring more cpu efficiency n resources.

I don't think any flagship devices from 2016 will get Android P except the first Pixel phones.
About the post sale, well the LG i had was nothing but trouble, Samsung service is ok and Huawei customer service is like talking to the wall... i just found Apple service pretty good in my experience. And about the downclocking, i just will stick to real world experience and after replacing the iPhone 6 battery of my friend, the phone is just as fast as new unlike the HTC M9 he owns... almost unusable.
I used to criticize very much to Apple in the past but since i had the iPhone SE to the 6 and now with the 7, those phones are expensive as hell but totally worth in my opinion.

And 5years? Seriously? Everyone is aware apple clocking down their previous gens after new release to 600mhz..so in a year its slow as 100$ Chinese device unless u keep changing battery every now n then. Apple users paid top dollar coz they like it fast..why woud they compromise speed n lagfree #tags for 5years?
Cool..i see the advantages
Btw normally android flagships(as comparing price range wd apple)get 3years os updates unless its pixel or droid1 they get more i guess..and beyond that there r security patches every quarter..n believe me or not my device has gotten more n more fast n better since android 6 through 7 to 8.so again..not everything is specific to apple.its the norm more or less followed for enhancing the device..not downclocking its performance
Drains battery fast, future updates and advance options are useless when your battery on last for 12 hrs on a regular use. think about that. dont waste your money here. i am cell tech. i recommend other brand rather than this.

Muneeb, 12 Aug 2018Can anyone here tell me which one is a better choice iPhone 7 or Samsung Galaxy S8?The S8 is much feature rich like the big screen, the expandable memory, the camera is also better than the iPhone 7... but with the iPhone 7 you will enjoy a much longer updates, more than the S8 and you can operate easily with one hand, with the S8 can be very difficult to reach the top and lower part of the screen with one hand.
Can anyone here tell me which one is a better choice iPhone 7 or Samsung Galaxy S8?
Lamar, 11 Aug 2018Hw will I identity a fake iPhone 7 from the real one?If you can try the iphone, you should check the 3D touch, apply some force by touching on any app and a menu will appear, the fake one will do nothing. Also try to enter iTunes, most likely will be music player only and the options to buy media won't be anywhere in the app. You can check the screws in the lower part near the Lightning port, if the device is legit, you should see 5 lobes screws instead of the ordinary screws of 4 lobes.

On contrary android offers u more for money.
It was my first time using ios, and my first time using iphone 7. I bought a second hand phone, but it was still brand new, the battery health is also 100%. The phone is fast, but the phone sometimes got stuck when I opened and zoomed in a not-fully-loaded-photo on Safari. It happened more frequent when I opened my second whatsapp application (I installed 2 whatsapp on my phone) and it was not legal. I did not know if it was the application problem or the phones problem. Moreover, some of my friend also said the iphone 7 got a little slower since their recent ios updates. The battery of iphone 7 is also legendarily-low. In a day, the occasional usage (no games, just use my phone to chat) will need to charge twice. I had discussed this with my friend who is using an iphone too, he said it was perfectly normal for apple. Overall, I am quite satisfied with the phone, it has a great camera, performance, but not the battery life.
