Bigger screen, better res, bigger CPU - not surprising the battery life sucks, but Apple fanboys will flock to it either way - Android still the better option IMO

So it's good, but not that good. The s6 isn't even particularly efficient, plus it has a better resolution and bigger screen, both drain power.
bobby21, 04 Oct 2015And all this with just 1715 mah! Apple is amazing.my android phone has only 1600 mah battery and every minute I use the phone, it drops 1%. :D So yeah, apple did an amazin job making a 1700+ battery last 62 hrs standby time, 10+hrs talk-time etc.. Would love to have the phone.

I use S6 and Htc M8 and still 1 day battery life i had...so no big deal for battery life..Note 5 is on par with iphone 6s plus
So for 1 day usage all are there (expect Xperia that i think they had a great battery life) but if you want more like 2 days usage get a phablet like note 5,iphone 6 plus etc

Several users like me are stuck with Android not because the Apple appeal is not sufficient but that are unable to compromise on the basics despite being charged a bomb. I envy my iPhone/iPad owning friends when I use their devices. Unfortunately, I do not need a tab, so I can't even own the Apple device I like the most for now. We may not be the majority but there are sufficient number of users who care about one or more features like decent battery life, flexibility in memory decisions, more desktop-like access to files etc. which are of high importance to them but Apple currently seems to be ignorant enough and make them more anti-Apple with time, with its arrogance.
Not an argument/rant. Only expressing disappointment
Anonymous, 05 Oct 2015You talk more than 10 hours a day on your phone? :DI can not accept less than 30 hours talktime, 6000 mAh battery, 1000 DPI screen, and Hecta-core processor. If there a smartphone with these specs....I would by it instantly ..LOL
Considering the tiny capacity of the battery, this is an amazing performance!
Still though, i cant stop thinking what an amazing phone it could have been with a proper battery, smth around 2500 and 2mm thicker...

You seem to be confusing innovate with invent. That must have been one heck of a laptop to have a pressure sensitive screen. What was the model?

http://w... morethey have a patent for anything they plan or not to make, it doesn't mean they invented it at all. They just own the patent before it gets popular to make use of when it earns money.
My laptop from 2006 did have pressure sensing, super precise on top of that. In fact you chose separately touch size and pressure threshold levels for the input, all that with dual touch as well, in 2006 (year of the laptop's production. The technology itself is older of course).
