Why keep comparing it to Samsung. As if Samsung is the only android phone that exist in this world. As if there is no other android phone that make a better rival. Sony and Huawei make a better competition too if you ask me. No one ever said Huawei and Sony laggy and hang a lot. Why not make them Apple main rival instead. Seriously.
Zerdrone, 21 Nov 2015The Thing I don't understand is.......Samsung Phones come with 3 or 4 GB RAMs ......but they ... moreFirst of all can you tell please which phone hangs, and there are many phone companies other than Samsung like Sony,HTC moto, lenovo LG (Samsung just is biggest seller of android phones , it doesn't represent all android phones ) If you have problem with Samsung phones of lagging just try mobiles phones like moto(their midrange products are too good) nexus series ,you won't be disappointed

may be Samsung has 3/4 gb ram but in case of apps, Samsung gives everything free....but in Apple everything whatever u want to download you have to pay for that....lagging of apple is also present if u compare to Samsung... those who are telling Samsung is the only brand which hangs he didn't even use Samsung phone or didn't use apple...so please don't do this...I am requesting you guys....
I hope iPhone 7 is between 6 to 6.5 inches. If you still produce tiny phones, I am going to give up for good on apple produce, I am not going to browse web on apple product, close my ears when people talks about iPhone. I have waited for 7 years for bigger phones from APPLE. I have bought 2 tiny iphones all this while and wasted money on them as I only used them for average 2 weeks, too tiny for me to enjoy.
Apple is destroying the competition through its philosophy of providing solutions as opposed to simply cramming in features without a smooth interface integration.
Competition is scrambling, but some like Samsung are already realising and now changing philosophy mid course with frankenstein like approaches on their phones, trying to emulate Apple.
Zerdrone, 21 Nov 2015The Thing I don't understand is.......Samsung Phones come with 3 or 4 GB RAMs ......but they ... moreBecause apple(iOS) uses C and Objective-C where as Samsung uses Android which is based on Java.
Java compilation takes more time as compared to C and Objective-C.
why I bought iPhone 6s :-(
But the fact is I am happy with my choice. Never choose android as primary phone
Its all about resource utilization.... While the Android & Windows based Devices keeep on Stacking up their processor cores & RAM, they fail to understand, the Android OS isnt capable of Harnessing the specs in the best possible way..... While with iPhone/iOS though the phone utilizes the Dual Core & 1-2 Gigs of memory much better and the Operation is much smoother ;)
What Samsung & other Android sellers should do is to tweak the Android OS rather than upgrading their procs to server grade 6 Core & 8 Core Variants
AnonD-362866, 21 Nov 2015ANYONE who says it is the same as long press. Simply proves that they haven't used it before. Honestly, it is the same. The time taken to hard press the screen is no different than a long press feature. I obviously had tried it before. By no means it is absolutely not an invention or innovation. Even digital weight scale use the same concept.
SexierdanPuzier, 21 Nov 2015i-phone 7 is da best you haters!!!!!!!!!!it hasnt even come out yet... rumor.. might not even be waterproof
260 million units? no I don't think they will sell that many phones, this year apple sold around 74 million phones, and it also happened to be one of samsung worst year's, so it was MOSTLY luck they sold so many,
next year I don't think apple will sell as many phones, with the new galaxy s7 release in February, it is expected to smash apple's smartphone sales of 2016.
and it will switch a lot of apple users back to samsung, (! IMO !)
P, 21 Nov 2015I would love this. The average iphone buyer isn't the sharpest tool in the shed, hence they wi... moreReminds me of a social media post that said that iPhones are now waterproof, so many sheeps fell for it and ended up messing up their phones in the process haha
Anonymous, 21 Nov 2015A 512Mb iPhone 4S runs iOS 9, clearly iOS doesn't NEED 3Gb of RAMNot surprising since iOS is heavily optimized for a certain set of hardware preselected by Apple whereas Android has to run on a wide variety of hardware combinations, 3Gb is not necessary on iPhone's just like it isn't necessary on SOME Android phones but they still give it to you anyway, thus more bang for your buck. Let's see how well that 4S runs with future major iOS updates lol bet it lags on version 9 with its old specs.
