Reaper.s1000rr, 10 Sep 2015Oh he can stay here all day and comment 1 million times. I dont care. I am saying it doesn... moreYou just described a typical "Hater" ... Found in websites and youtubes.. They have all the time in the world to criticise something they will never ever buy... Probably cause they are too in Love with some another brand... But they will try their best to relentlessly insult another product for no apparent reason
Reaper.s1000rr, 10 Sep 2015Because you can read the product page? Also, after reading the article and realizing you dont ... moreyou need to go to any samsung page and see how the sheep who would buy this phone react there, then say that same thing here with a straight face.
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
If the battery life is better than the older lame battery iPhone6, it's not a problem.
But if it's same or less- it's a HUGE fail.
Samsung and Apple, destined to fall because of their own arrogance.
Can't wait to see anyone with this phone so I can laugh at them , this new iPhone is pathetic for 2015 Apple has had its day
No problem since they 'designed hardware and software harmonicaly'

There is absolutely no reason to do so, except masochism and submissiveness to Apple.
Anonymous, 10 Sep 20151715mah on a 2015 premium phone
Premum? Come on, this is hardly a premium phone!
Look at this video:
Apparently this user thought that it is normal for phones to bend and get broken. Some Apple users are even happy that their phone breaks so they can go to the Apple store and feel valued! Hell even in this thread we found one!
I never had to go to a store or get my phone repaired, and that's even without using case. I have owned S2, S4, S5, One M7, One M8, Asus Zenfone, OnePlus 1 and OnePlus 2. Just about anything is more durable that an iPhone.
Premium? I don't think so!
LynX-007, 10 Sep 2015tbh, Apple is actually really smart, ripping off the not so intelligent population of humans. ... morethey would buy an iturd if apple brought one out,one of tim cooks turds with a tiny battery in it.
Apple copying Samsung again. Smaller battery. When Apple give smaller battery all iphone fan be like "its okay and we love the downgrade" but bash Samsung Note5 smaller battery. The 12.9inch ipad with Apple Pencil. A direct copy of Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 with Spen. And Apple wants you to buy the Apple Pencil separately at $99. Rip off too much. We need to be a Doctor to keep the Apple away.
Reaper.s1000rr, 10 Sep 2015I dont like Android phones so I never read the articles, let alone comment. I just ignore them... moreThat's because they don't rip off others. If Android phones were rip offs you would be a terrible human for not pointing out the imposture!
hime-sama, 10 Sep 2015Apple seems to be following Sony's footsteps, less battery, higher camera pixel count, less... moreAnd 1mm larger bezels. And 192g!!!!
Just for laughs:
Moto X Style:
5.7" QHD 153.9 x 76.2 x 11.1 mm | 179g | 3,000 mAh | 64GB | 75% Screen to Body ratio
iPhone 6S Plus:
5.5" 1080p 158.2 x 77.9 x 7.3 mm | 192g | 2,915 mAh | 64GB | 68% screen to body ratio
5.7" QHD 153.2 x 76.1 x 7.6 mm | 171 f | 3,000 mAh | 64GB | 76%% Screen to body ratio
The iPhone 6S Plus is much larger than the 5.7" rivals, not to mention 20g heavier. That's from the same company whose former CEO insisted on how it is so critical that your thumb can reach each corner of the screen?
If you are going to bring at a large phone, at least do it Apple style, with the thinnest bezels. That kind of negligence just shows it is running to shit since Steve Jobs died. He would never have accepted such a mess of an unveiling where you have to reveal that your already bulky phone got bulkier and 20g heavier!
At this price and size you can buy 2 x 6 inches Huawei Ascend Mate 8 phones.
And they wonder why the regular iPhone outsells the Plus 2 to 1?
