I brought iPhone 6s as this is now more affordable in India

Their CPU is twice as big as e.g. a Snapdragon 835 CPU, they have Great graphics and tremendously fast NVMe storage. Those things cost money, and other chip makers don't want to invest that money.

I have both Android and iOS device, Android I had been using since 2011 - Samsung Galaxy Note1 N7000 and a iphone 3GS and now I am using a new iPhone 7 since 3 months.
I still dont have any hanging issues in web browsing, texting, etc in 3gs where in, Note7 which is younger by 2 years to 3gs is hanging a lot. COmpare the specs of both the phones.
Coming to iPhone 7 - its purely a gem. At first I thought for few months, read several reviews, to invest a big money on the phone with lesser specs against the gigantic specs on the Android world. But I stuck to my instinct and went ahead with the iPhone7 to replace my Samsung phone for a reason.
I took Oneplus 3T of my colleague and kept side by side to compare the performance.
in all the tests like opening a webpage, launching WhatsApp, FB, Linkedin, Asphalt8, NFS, FIFA mobile, etc. outcome was iPhone defeated the Oneplus 3T phone - a 6GB RAM beast phone on every test we made. iPhone was really fantastic.
Real performance was not only on launching the games and Apps, using them for a while, I was able to load the games pretty quickly, the gaming performance was as smooth as butter in iPhone, but in Android I was able to see lag even in 8 Ball pool game which doesnt use extensive Graphics. Also Battery is coming roughly 24 hours on standby with 5 to 7 hours of Gaming+Music+WhatsApp+Wifi/4G connection ON, FB sync, Gmail Sync, etc etc.
While the same enabling in Android phone for 6 to 7 hours was the total battery time.
In a nut shell, we should compare the performance not the specs is what Apple phones tells us. Its out of the world experience for me in this 3 months and was really feeling bad not going for 4S against Galaxy Note 1 as they both were launched in 2 weeks gap in 2011-2012.
Great Job by the Apple R&D team for giving a wonderful slim and small beast which is beautiful.

stinkman2004777, 21 Jun 2017Gsmarena should write in the features that the 'Iphone 7 red' is fire proof. Say yes if you agree!Yes, but they should actually make another page and another review, if they consider it such a big feature.

Joseph , 21 Jun 2017Should I get iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 plus :/ I'm confused7 is best bro......
I think apple iPhone is like windows phone. People brought it for its apple logo. Thats looking nice. No other fruits as smart as Apple or beaten apple.

iOS11?!?!?! Its beta it's not meant for regular usage, official release is still three months away
I have the iPhone 7 - (RED) and it's amazing. I don't really care about screen resolution because the size of the display of the 7 makes the screen resolution look pretty HD. One of the things I hate about the 7 is the battery life. I kinda want it to last a little bit longer. But overall, it's a great phone. And also, iOS 11 on the 7 is really buggy and it made the 7 a little bit slower.
I've had a apple iphone 3s,4s,6 and now the 7. I have tried android phones and just can't get on with them. I find the 7 very responsive and it gets things done pretty quick.i love 3D Touch. I think I will always be a apple fan.

Brainwashed android boy detected!
IPhone 7 is very competitive phone with S8 in every measure which matters for mass market.
Sure you android boys can keep buying bigger numbers on paper ans get this :D https://youtu.be/3ajdZQc3q_8 iPhone 6s vs galaxy S8 speed test, just pathetic.
It's so weird how over two years old phone can beat newest android "speed" beast ;)
But again if thats what you want :) we iPhone users buy overall product and overall experience, not invidual specs. It's all those specs and software and hardware together which makes the overall user experience, iPhone is very balanced device, you know making smartphone is always making compromises and it's very hard thing, you have limited space and limited money to put everything inside of that small covers.
"but i guess ppl only care about the logo when they buy these..."
You are quite right about this, its called awareness, it takes years and years to build it, Appel have made great phone ten years now and people knows exactly what they get when they buy Apple logo and it wont be disappointing.
This is big reason why iPad was instant hit, people knew because it has Apple logo it has to be fluid, fast, easy to use have great apps and games etc. Even without owning one because users already knew Apple delivers great products which users like to use a lot.

A10 Fusion is the fastest chip in a phone, almost 1 year after its release. The numbers with the least meaning are the number of votes and the size of the RAM

Technical specs don't always equal performance. And surely we don't have to have the latest specs to perform good. And what is this latest spec anyway? chipset? RAM? camera? screen?
All in all I'm amazed by how good Apple A10 is. Things that hinder it a bit is the battery capacity and it's screen resolution, at least for me.
Peace from XperiaX user.
