I get it man, my grandmother still uses phones with buttons and she wont switch to touch for the world! lol try and remember, that your needs, and the next persons, are very different. Also try not to say 95% of the population doesnt need that much power, I'd like to think that there are more than 5% of us out there ;) lol you also have nothing to back up that statement, which makes this really long essay of yours lack credibility.
Duel, 27 Sep 2015"i would actually go for the Huawei Nexus 6P because its full of good specs"
Typical androi... moreum thats a no brainer , its because of the isheep. those that want to buy a phone as a status symbol. ever wonder why apple never made a phone which was considered low end or mid end. only capital phones? Because if they ever did they would be losing a lot of there customer base . because then it is no longer the status symbol. if you would ever break this down by the actual class of people who buy the phone you would see this very accurately.
me i buy a phone for what i use it for. should it die, or no longer fit my need, then ill upgrade. after all im still using a note 2. And other then maybe a 15% dip in overall battery performance since the day it was bought 3 years ago. I have had no problems at all with it. and it does everything i need it to.
But i do agree with the point of the specs race. it is about pointless. super specs for what, benchmarking? After all in real life 95% of the population would never possibly need those kind of specs. Its a rat race android constantly booming ahead in specs just to say its the best and fastest. regardless if the world would ever need it. And apple waiting for all those high end devices to pan out and become stable so you can call it an innovation.
its kind of a never ending cycle. when my note 2 dies i will definently upgrade it. know what i will do, buy a second hand one. when you are no longer paying a premium for the best of the best. and it will do everything i need with no issues, and will probably last and be appropriate for the next 4 years. after all there isnt much a note 2 cant do even now. and its 3 years behind the times. so figure in a year or so when its truly irrelavent or dies. ill get a note 4 or note 5 , since by then they will be at note 6 or 7.
and yes i have owned both apple and android products. apple i had bad luck with. owned it during the iphone 3 4 era. so im pretty scorned to going back to them. trust me no company is perfect. just was never lectured about the way i hold my phone before then. have tried several android manufacturers. there you truly get what you pay for. have tried new budget phone , new mid level phones , and new top of the line phones. and believe me specs isnt everything. specs doesnt mean your phone will even last 3 months. after all look how much people paid for 810 chip devices great specs for a toaster oven. benchmarked great though so specs wise its good.
whole reason for now i stick with samsung is the same reason a lot of people stick with apple. the after sale support which on most phones is non existent. I have had samsung replace and fix things for me that were out of warranty. which is why my tv's my fridge most my electronics are now samsung
it impressed me when i accidently unplugged a top end blu ray player back in the era when they still cost $500 while it was doing a firmware update. it was 2 months out of warrnaty. i called samsung told them what happened. they gave me an rma number free shipping and fixed it for free by adding a free warranty extention on it. that is how you keep customers. and that is something a lot of manufacturers should practice.

I'm saying:... moreMost of the android users are stupid - they only buy phone with seeing the technical specs and then shouts. They shout about multi tasking in phone/ heavy users/..etc etc
but never thinks about the poor integration of software & hardware. Android is still in beta (my opinion), users are pathetic - seeks everything free (my apps exp.), 80% of users cannot understand simple things (app exp) - when a mobile OS takes full 3/4 GB RAM to run then there is a serious issue with that os (I have moto e, xperia z2, samsung a5) - with 0 apps ram is always 80% ...

I'm saying: An old BMW M5 E34 can compete against a Bugatti Veyron aswell as you can see here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ioy1zeB49sU
Does that mean the BMW is a better car than the Bugatti Veyron just because it's a little faster?
You said: IPhone 6s is lot faster than S6 the bigger app or task you make the bigger dfference is in speed for iPhone 6s.
I'm saying: And you think being faster is all that count on a smartphone?
Let me tell you a secret. Clearly Android apps are able to take advantage of multi-core processors and big.LITTLE allows the scheduler to pick the best core combination for the current workload. If you still hear people saying things like 'but a smartphone doesn't need 8 cores' then just throw your hands-up in despair, as it means they don't understand Heterogeneous Multi-Processing and they don't understand that big.LITTLE is about power efficiency and not overall performance.
So there you have it.

IPhone 6s is lot faster than S6 the bigger app or task you make the bigger dfference is in speed for iPhone 6s.
Also your screen res is just typical excuse. When iPhone 4 came, it had sharpest screen in market and yet it was fastest. Aple devices are always going to be fastest because they control the software and hardware and every year they make bigger leap in speed than those android OEMs. And this year they left the androis OEMs in dust.
Duel, 28 Sep 2015"7) iPhone doesn't even have proper multitasking and still closes apps more aggressively."
... moreOK, I'll give you that one. Ram management is still worse on android. But after seeing several speed tests they tend to be neck and neck, with iPhone 6s sometimes faster, and s6 sometimes faster (despite better display). To be fair android M is said to improve ram management, but this is still a couple months away probably, and its still dubious whether it would help.
Overall the 6s looks to be faster, which is mainly due to the s6's display, and poor ram management, and the iPhone's optimisation. And although it is faster that doesn't mean its more powerful, it just means if you use it for menial tasks (probably the majority) it would be smoother, albeit slightly. Worth mentioning that the iPhone 6s has 6 months on the s6, and that it probably won't be competing as well against the new galaxy in 6 months.

33,060 seconds. Or 551 minutes. Or 9 hours and 11 minutes. No matter how you slice it, the score that the iPhone 6s Plus achieved on our proprietary battery benchmark is impressive, which is a first for an iPhone in our database. As if to prove a point, the 6s Plus clocked the exact same figure as Samsung's shiny new Galaxy Note5, which boasts a slightly larger, 3,000 mAh cell. An excellent showing."
If i had to to choose an iPhone for my next phone, i would absolutely go for the iPhone 6S Plus. However, Samsung does indeed have much better phones, so on friday that was 3 days ago, i bought the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ with 64 GB internal storage.
So i wont choose anything in this poll then.

I don't care for comparing the numbers in specs, I don't care for 'harmony'. I care for how it would affect me. You don't know how to read specs so you should stop while you're ahead.
The only reviews I found of the iphone6s' battery said that its worse than its predecessor, even with ios9, which is available on its predecessor anyway. And its a lot worse than its competitors in android still. That's because the custom cores in an iPhone sacrifice battery for the sake of performance, android used octa-core with a big.little architecture for improving battery.

It's actually opposite, iPhone keep opened apps in background very well when samaung phones reloading almoat every apps, there's already tens of speedtest videos and most clear difference iPhone 6s makes when those testers try open background apps and samaung phones doing horrible job
Here's one video http://youtu.be/ybn9gVatdLk 6s vs note 5

I concede to nothing. You try and understand this: Apple technology is better than the rest of the smartphone OEM's. That is why they can use 2 cores to fkuck up 8, that is why they dont need 4GB of RAM. This is thanks to the perfect marriage of iOS and it's hardware. This type of marriage in the Android world is unheard of even in the Nexus lineup. Go play now, you clearly have no idea what your on about.

1. Lies. youtube speedtests between the 6s and 6s and also the 6s plus vs the Note 5. iPhone... more1) Stop being silly. The iPhone aggressively closes background apps, it has to with limited cores. Those speed tests dont check how many of the apps the iPhone actually had open still, so those tests are flawed. Unless you have a better test you would like to link me to.
Console games are much better. Check the price of a PSP game and compare it to how much an Apple game costs. And if you bothered to play them you would see how much better they are. Again, stop being silly, phone games are still far behind in terms of game quality.
3)You don't seem to understand 3d touch. It does have some usage and add convenience, but it is quite minimal.
4) camera is not better, check the reviews. But they are pretty close, personally I don't stare long enough at the pics to even see which one I think is better, not really a camera man.
5) it doesn't change that the screen is better, this is something that even I could see.
6) I meant the design of the phone, not whether or not it changed. The s6 edge looks better than the iPhone 6/6ss. Stop being silly and read what I said before attacking me blindly
7) iPhone doesn't even have proper multitasking and still closes apps more aggressively.
Most of your 'arguments' were insubstantial and untrue. Typical ignorant fanboy rant. You don't know as much about Apple, let alone android, as you think you do.

'Peeking' could have been implemented without that. And why are you incapable of looking at anything but numbers? You can't go around saying android users just drool over specs, and then talk crap about how iPhone has less cores. Why not just look at the performance that the cores are used for? Everyone knows the iPhone uses custom cores that drain the battery for the sake of performance, apart from Apple fans themselves apparently.
Plus the octacore setup only uses 4 cores, the other 4 are for efficiency. One website (heavily biased towards apple where they could be, the subjective parts) done a test using a 90 minute video. IPhone 6s drained 30% and the galaxy s6 drained 16%.
