Anonymous, 13 May 2015Lol. In your dreams maybe. Or if you are speaking sales only.
No. What's a kid thing to do is... moreUm... I'm talking about software in its entirety. Apps included. If App developers have to limit their products capabilities because of the fragmentation of an ecosystem then you're not getting the best experience. To get the widest possible audience, many app devs have to limit their app to 2 or 3 earlier versions of Android with a wide range of hardware in mind. For many users this means there can be a lack of consistency depending on the device they use and which version of the OS their carrier limits them to. Are you starting to understand the full picture now?
And btw, if you bothered to click on the link in my last post, you would see GSMA showing the 6plus doing pretty well against the Note 4. But I guess reality bites so you try to avoid it.
fonhunter, 12 May 2015I don't get it why some people would always refer to android as sluggish? Did you use the G1 a... moreBecause they are bias and jealous.
And your claims put you on the same level.
People call touchwiz sluggish the same way apple users claim Android is supposedly so sluggish.
It's just exaggerated and misleading false claims.
dodo, 12 May 2015Yep. Apple keeps the same design. It's called branding.
Both the iOS and the Android platfo... moreWhat bias load of bs.
S6 not as well built? You mean using stronger metals and glass? And surviving much more harsh drop tests at a much great number compared to the iphone is not made as well????
Using much newer and advanced more powerful and efficient parts that cost more to make and use is not better made????
And LOLOLOLOL You just said your iphone gets force closes, but that's an Android thing really that doesn't happen on ios that much??? Seriously???????? On what planet does that even make sense?
And actually iOS apps are proven to crash considerably more so than Android ones. Or any other smartphone for that matter.
Anonymous, 13 May 2015The One Drive offer, like the Dropbox one is nothing but bait and switch. Free for two years ... moreLol. In your dreams maybe. Or if you are speaking sales only.
No. What's a kid thing to do is side track and trll with the whole "specs" don't matter thing if someone even thinks of mentioning them.
Duh it's software and hardware. And a million other phones and then some besides iphone have good software too. Software is not something limited iphone.
And is not even anywhere near the advanced caliber it's claimed to be with iOS either.
Thomas, 13 May 2015The same old thing of "not being able to afford an iphone" I hear it time after time... moreExactly. People make it out to be some advanced alien tech when in so many ways it's so far behind.
I have IPHONE 5S with IOS 8.3 and several time whatsapp hangs,handset becomes non responsive...never expected from iphone
Iloveapple, 12 May 2015i just don't know,why all the apple haters read all these articles and keep commenting s**t ab... moreThe same old thing of "not being able to afford an iphone" I hear it time after time and it is a load of old shoemakers. The iphone IS affordable but some people just don't want one. I know people who have little money but have one while others that have money have an iphone. People choose what they want. Personally having used an iphone in the past I wouldn't want another. Yes I CAN afford one, I'm just bored of them.
fonhunter, 12 May 2015I don't get it why some people would always refer to android as sluggish? Did you use the G1 a... moreTop end androids are also sluggish, atleast till 4.4
iOS is super buttery, i wish it was the opposite.
Anonymous, 12 May 2015No true. At least Samsung give Dropbox previously and now one drive. Apple is a decent mid ran... moreThe One Drive offer, like the Dropbox one is nothing but bait and switch. Free for two years and then you have to start paying. For a mid range phone the 6plus surely gave the Note 4, and every Samsung device before it, a good run for its money. It may be difficult for you to understand, but hardware and software make the package that customers interact with. Looking at spec sheets only is a kid's way of comparing a device.
AnonD-394793, 12 May 2015unfortunately apple keeps the same design for 2 yrs.Yep. Apple keeps the same design. It's called branding.
Both the iOS and the Android platforms are really good. I used various Androids for the past 3 years as my main phones, now I use an iPhone 6+. It's the best phone I have ever had.
The new S6 are really good, too. Not as well made as the iPhone, if you look at the details, but really good. I have sworn off the Galaxy line numerous times, but keep getting back to it :)
I almost switched again now to the S6 because of the camera, but decided to keep the 6+ which is also really good, after all. Just like the feel of it better.
I do get the occasional FC with pretty much all Androids though, which virtually never happens with the iPhone.
joe sHmoe, 12 May 2015Using a micro SD slot affects the phones processing performance since the SD cards arent opted... moreNot really. There are SD cards that are used in high speed cameras, rivaling the speed of flash memory on internal storage.
The real reason that Google and Apple don't use SD cards is 1) SANDISK owns SD card patents and 2) it's easier to charge more $$$ to the consumer by removing their ability to upgrade.
I don't get it why some people would always refer to android as sluggish? Did you use the G1 and got scarred for life? Or are you using those 100usd and below phones and comparing its performance to iphones 6plus? Or got stuck with touchwiz pre Galaxy S6 era and never had a chance to use any other flavor/skin? My 3 yr old kid has been using an ipad mini and it gets sluggish and freezes over time, and the little fella gets really frustrated with that. And yeah, it is his media-toy kinda thing, for youtube and some toddler level games only.
