Woooo the Android club really woke up tonight. A lot of salty wounds being licked. Chill out guys.
What a shame... They really dont have any excuses, since the dimensions have marginally grew.
Anyway, this is a fashion toy for girls, they are not practical enough to think about endurance, they are pleased to have it thin, pink and with a mean selfie cam...
mob master, 10 Sep 2015If Apple is tht Great company for you and other ifans then why they cant give 1st micro sd car... moreBecause dual sim is characterised as a budget phone feature.
Sd cards would mean far lesser profits so they wont include it and kill the sales of 128 gb variants....also Not including sd cards keeps their phone from lagging I guess.
dude, 10 Sep 2015yEah.. 1.715 ..congratulations ...because its not android who need lots core , lots ram , lots pixel and lots battery with lots of lots ...
wisewizard_87, 10 Sep 2015what is wrong with u peeps - i cant express how frustrated i am with how much of energy and ti... moreeven u said outdated , apple used 64 bit first , while ur android just know create million core but still using 32bit ... that time people said 64bit is useless, now look what happen , all ur flagship android using 64 bit ... still lag
apple will not make huge sales this time around. but it looks like it has plans for iPhone 7 next year to "surprise" us. This year though, no... if I had iphone 6 plus I would never upgrade to s
Well for those complaining about specs...
Apple was never really in the specs war like android companies...
The reason is simple... They dont need to. When the same company makes the hardware and software or OS(like apple does).. Its a better intergration than what android manufacturers get.
Kinda like love marriage over arranged.
Well jokes apart..
So iOS doesn't really need 4gb of RAM to be butter smooth or blazing fast. 1gb is enough for iOS, mostly because of the lack of customisation.. But that isnt really a thing to complain..its preference.
I personally like making my phone unique but I know a lot of people who dont give a damn about customising.
Next up camera..Now I too used to mock my friends who own 5s and 6 about a flagship phone having just 8mp ...something budget androids provide...but it was actually an eye opener if you see the camera quality of iphones...dont believe me? Check it put yourself at some electronics shop or if any pf your friends own one..you will be impressed!
Their 8 mp(i6) was ONE OF THE BEST matched and bettered by just Samsungs S6's 16 and Sony's z3's 20.7 and a lumia I cant seem to remember.. Rest dont match it.
Hence Im sure the 12 mp will once again be in the top 3-4 camera's in smartphones...
So its not like a camera is supposed to impress in specsheet but in actual use..apple manages the latter..which really counts.
Screen is once again going crazy in the specs war...Z5 reached 4k which was like invented 2 years ago reserved for 55 inch Huge LED Tvs...frankly thats where it belongs if you want the true 4k experience... A 5.5 inch will be heavenly to look at with 4k but its a very minor upgrade over even full hd(sony fans hating me already? See any z5 vs z5 premium video since it hasnt yet launched in many countries) its a minor quality upgrade... Huge innovation! I repeat its a HUGE INNOVATION to pack 4k in 5.5 inches but its only a small improvement over full HD. And if you consider the battery usage of a 4k display you might wonder should I stick to a Full HD phone instead?
Thats how apple went with their phones. They stuck to full Hd( 6s plus) because even though you will know theres QHD and UHD out there.. But at a pocketable size .. Its very minor improvements in exchange of precious battery life. Some people wont even percieve the difference of QHD over FHD.
And as for the i6 , its somewhere slightly higher than 720 p display makes crisp enough display that you wont complain unless you are looking at the specs rather than the screen.
Lastly when you consider the battery...
Yeah 1700 mah is no where close to what androids offer ...but its lower res screen , more efficient processor with "just 1gb" of RAM doesnt really need that much power as some QHD android with 3-4 gbs of RAM.
So even though it isnt going to set standards ... Apples battery wont be any worse than the current crop of android flagships.... That still doesnt stop Apple from packing larger batteries but I guess some brands just dont give you everything.. Disappointing though.
Innovations are there.. But its about what you consider as innovation.
Bumping up specs beyond control is not innovation.. Its bringing something new to the product which was missing before
( like edge screen is one..good job by sammy)..and not just improving on the existing.
How many of you love the fingerprint sensor on your phones? I love it(the feature) even though I dont have a phone which offers :( ... But what Im trying to say is ..that was innovation.. To include a finger print sensor on your phone..
Many brands have followed ( xperia series got it this time around...samsung perfected its with the s6) however apple had a really good one 2 years ago in the 5s...
Usb type -c is just another modified version of their own "lightning connector". Apple innovation again.
Now Im not really sure how much the force touch is essential only because I feel the android execution of touch or tap ... And long touch or press does the job well... Both can be easily distinguished and they do different tasks.
But maybe I might change my mind after seeing.. And as for androids offering force touch? Its just the Huawei mate S ...which if you see its video..seems quite redundant... As if they are forcing you to use the force touch(no pun intended) where you didnt really need to.
Lastly yeah Apples are expensive! A bit too much.. But its the consumers fault! The brand sets the price...the consumers are still lining up to buy the exorbitantly priced phones!
I blame apple for android flagships reaching nearly 1000 $ mark because apple showed them people will still buy it.
Phones shouldnt be so expensive.. As their usage life is only 2-3 years ..so why do you price it like it will last you for 5 years.(by that time the current flagship will seem like a paperweight).
But thats one thing only consumers can change.
But apple does offer you software updates longer than any android flagship gets.
And Im sure many of you will call me iSheep and etc! Let me clear it up for you... NOT AN APPLE FAN! There are plenty of things I dont really like.. For example : the dependency on iTunes.. I would prefer if they never ever reqd a laptop or mac in iphones usage... And the lack of customisation or the not so powerful multitasking(if you can call that multitasking :p)..
So Apple has room for improvement... Then again which brand doesnt?
Im sure plenty of you will not read the comment because its way too long..sorry guys...I can't stick to any word limit...do give it a read though . Thanks
I liked iPhone but time to leave Steve jobs is missed , Sony put on there website hey Siri how's battery life lol says it all rip iPhone you had your day

Bcoz u only represent Your self...not entire Apple family.

If the i6 with 8 mp could be as good as sony z3 s 20.7 and slightly inferior to s6s 16 mp... Im confident 12 mp will produce excellent pics... Use an iPhone s camera... I assure you.. Its really good
Reaper.s1000rr, 10 Sep 2015Does your Oneplus have default FDE? How does that effect its performance? Can you push VPN set... moreYeah when you buy apple product you paid already the repair cost that's why they made it free.
The iPhone still has not caught up to the norm of 13MP camera. Apple sheeps are still living in the stone age.
wisewizard_87, 10 Sep 2015what is wrong with u peeps - i cant express how frustrated i am with how much of energy and ti... moreDude the thing is not about specs. It's about utilizing the specs. Android phones even with 4gb of ram lags like crap. An iPhone does a very good job of running multiple apps along with high end graphic games with just 1gb of ram. So don't keep running the same bullcrap about specs are lower. It's about the integration of hardware and software and how seamless it is.

And why are you so frustrated?? Do you spend the money for other people to buy phone? And grow up! Even the best of specs in other phones have tried throughout their life to match the unbeatable premium rich smooth ui of apple and miserably failed in that. Your specs calculations are just a crap on a piece of paper.
90% of the so called features on other devices are useless which no one actually use. Apple will have the features right useful to the users. And they wil implement a technology when it is the proper time. History has proved them right again and again.
Talking about the rest:
Sony I personally do like them, atleast they have japanese ethics and they do maintain quality in their products. They are premium in build and they honestly tell about their specs
Samsung is a cheat. Pathetic build and cheated benchmarks. And yes may be fully loaded with features but after six months it becomes like a punishment. And yes i has bought few of them. Wasted my money them. May be you should be frustrated for that instead!!!
Apple is premium, feels rich and it has the best user experience. Never lags and never hangs. I am using it since 4s. Now i have a 5s. Will get a 6s now. Learn the definition of premium first. And yes, I am an apple fan and i never even bother to comment and troll on other brands pages except apple and Sony. I am an apple fan and you may call me an isheep. I simply don't care
Go, get a life!
