New android phones work fine. After 1 year or later they start to lag and freeze. This causes later firmware updates to make those lags intentionaly. This way android phone manufacturers make or at least try to make older phone owners to buy new models. The same way android owners doesn't get long term firmware support and upgrades. This pisses most of android owners right off as well as the lie they get all the time.
So for me (an android user) this is the last time buying android phone. Next time iOS or WP10 for maximum support.
In the long run android will surpass IOS. Google's ahead now as well no doubt.
Symbian Rocks, 28 Oct 2015Ok. But future is Microsoft Windows for mobile.I am still rocking my 808 and I will only switch to android if they have matched the capabilities of Symbian for example native file explorer and the ability to install an app wholly on the memory card.. Heck the Symbian can even hot swap memory cards which android marshmellow can't even do

2 - CPU cores never mattered on any platform to begin with. Why is the Tegra-K1 on the Nexus 9 dual core and yet it runs over octa-cores and even the quad-core K1? The reason multiple cores are added is for use in two places where iOS failed for years - multitasking. More cores = more tasks can be handled while keeping CPU frequencies as low as possible, which saves battery (another big issue for all iOS devices made so far).
Also - Tegra K1, Tegra X1 - where is your A9 now?
Poor softwar update is the main reason. And also people who update their entry level phones.
Wonder if they track how many new Droid activations are from ex Apple users?
Jelly, 28 Oct 2015Well, I have problem with Galaxy S4. It is not made for high demanding users. Response is slow... moreI use mine in a demanding way, it handles well. Of course I use Cyanogenmod 12.1 on it.

The iPhone has to use 50% of its power(1 of 2 core) to do even light activity such as checking notifications whereas the android only uses 12.5% of its power (1 of 8 core) for light chores.. Guess whose battery last longer and whose the wall hugger?? Android is smart. 8 cores can achieve the same performance as 2 A9 cores but they will get better battery backup.
And you are dead wrong about Samsung's split screen multitasking. Go and read about it first if you are too lazy to try.
So much sour grapes lol. I thought you us were laughing hard at the rumors Apple sales were down? Lol
They are not android switchers.. They own and use android phones.. They only bought the iPhone as early as possible to sell them to sheep at a higher price for some quick bucks.. Then there are those android users who bought the iPhone just to do some torcher test videos and making money on YouTube. Android users are smart.

x3mer, 28 Oct 2015And they should! Many of the Android manufacturers are recently acting like Apple, so why just... morein what way? making a huge profit selling their phones like apple did? oh ya. it's your money... your call.
ReesanVaine, 28 Oct 2015I would move to iOS only if the CPU is quad core. (and up)
considering the A10 rumors are tru... moreQuad core is not useful with ios currently. As can be seen with benchmarks, apple's custom dual core destroys android's best octa core in single core operations benchmark and matches it in multi core. Graphic cards in iphone is literally in a league of its own.
Quad core might be useful if apple decides to implement full split screen compatibility a la windows. Currently, with the ipad air 2's slightly inferior specs (as opposed to iphone 6s), it's capable of samsung's limited split screen style.
vanityndwax, 28 Oct 2015Ecosystem preference. They could upgrade their phone from their shit android to a high end and... moreNo, it not.
You have 0 information based on what they shared, so guessing or speculating is completely useless for anything other than bragging (which nobody other than fanboys fare about, regardless what company it is).
Ecosystem? I have no idea what you even mean by that, feel free to elaborate on it. If you're going to reference "android fragmentation", then I'll reference the part where there is no such thing as an iOS ecosystem as there's 6 devices total - 2 old phones (5, 5s), 2 new phones (6, 6s), 2 tablets (iPad Air 1 and 2), it's basically the old model and the new model, that's it...would be kind'a funny though to see people start talking about the Nexus ecosystem, and the Galaxy S ecosystem, and let's not forget the One/Plus ecosystem.

So what? Tegra have lousy battery management, either you cramp tons of battery bloat like bricks.. A9 still the best and most efficient as of date.
