Les, 08 Jul 2018Yes, itÂ’s true if youÂ’re comparing to to an a9 chipset to snapdragon 835. But if you compare... moreNah it has nothing to do with the phone, it's the platform, the limitations made me switch back to Android

But this happens because iPhone is a product that was designed, together with its OS, by the same company. If you make all components, hardware and software, surely you get a product optimized for great performance.
Android is a very powerful OS, but it has to run (well) on 250 types of screens, 65, types of RAM memory, 85 types of processors, 650 types of motherboards, etc, etc... from a hundred producers with a thousand models. You get the idea. It's not easy. This is why it needs at least the double of hardware power (RAM, processor, etc) to deliver comparable speed and performance with the iPhone.
I was user of iPhone 4s, but only on 16GB model, and needed more space. Then a bought couple Android flagships from Samsung, Sony and Huawei. Now I own iPhone 8 256GB and in comparison with any Android flagship I have used, I can say they are incomparable. Apple uses less CPU and RAM because the optimization of their SW and HW is unique and more is not needed. If Android has more CPU and RAM, it does not mean that is faster than iOS, it means that it needs more resources to complete the OS tasks.

Wanted to try out IOS, so i bought a cheap iphone 5s. Used it as the secondary device. I loved it. In the meantime, some shitty accident happend and S7 edge's display broke. So i thought i should probably buy an iphone as my primary phone. Went ahead and bought a 6s.
--3D touch was kinda awesome (specially when playing multiplayer fps)
--for basic uses, it was great, device was snappy.
------after the honeymoon period (lol) started noticing shortcomings
1) I just didn't like the way my homescreen appeared...
2) Music - - - This was the real dealbraker. I live away from US. A good free music streaming service was hard to come by. I couldn't download music from the internet(websites)
3) No torrenting - - - Yes I get it. Torrenting is kinda illegal. But it's something really useful. Whenever you need to watch a tv series, a movie, or to listen to a hi-res music file - torrenting kicks in.
4) Expandable Storage - - - This was really painful. When you're on a tight budget, most people go for cheap 16 or a 64gb iphone. You gotta feel for the 16gb guys. Really??? Lol 16gb isn't gonna be enough at all. I had the 64gb one. But still after about a month - it wasn't enough.
At this point - I didn't wanna give up though. I found solutions to many of the shortcomings. For example, I used my laptop to download music and transferred throigh the iTunes app. But finally I was ready to admit the fact -
--Iphone 6s is not gonna do everything I need my phone to do...
No I'm not saying ios/iphones are bad. Infact they are great devices. Super snappy, and the apple's 5years software update thing is awesome. And it's great to see, many Android following on these footprints.
Finally i bought a nokia 8 (was really cheap at 400$). My first pure Android device. This never made me miss ios. Phone is up-to-date with most recent OS/security versions. Super snappy(running snapdragon 835) I'm glad I switched back to Android (to pure android)
Functionality-wise (at least for me) (representing people not from US) Androids are way ahead of iphones. I still love ios. But right now, Android is ahead of the game.

If you want to get a lovely android experience, try a nokia 8 available for under 400$ (cheaper than 6s) Not saying iphone 6s is crap. But your claims are false. Older android versions and heavily customized skins (eg: TouchWiz UI) slow down over time. But pure android (like in Pixel / Nokia) or light skins (like in OnePlus) doesn't slow down over time.
Previously, I used Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro and Xiaomi Redmi Note as my first and second android phones. Android OS started to lag over time. Now, I have been using an iPhone 6 which is my first iPhone. Really satisfied with its performance and splendid quality of camera. Looking forward to buy an iPhone 8 for my next iPhone.

chudi, 29 Jun 2018galaxy phones are useless man. they become slower gradually Ummmmm And Apple doesnÂ’t?
It even admitted to it.
Every phone slows down with time.
Are you serious Apple?
64 rating for battery, wow absolutely disgusting.
Marwat, 24 Jun 2018Which one should i choose? Iphone 8 or galaxy s8 plusyou should consider that you could do more things in the galaxy than the iPhone, I have the iPhone 8 but I wish I had chosen the galaxy.
Marwat, 24 Jun 2018Which one should i choose? Iphone 8 or galaxy s8 plusabsolutely Iphone 8 plus, newer, more durable and a very long time of updates!
