The market is saturated, everyone who wanted an iPhone already bought it. Now they just need to upgrade every 1-2 years. iMac or iPad users upgrade even less often. Most of Apple's profits are in overseas banks because of taxes, and if you're not expanding the shareholders aren't happy.
So, Apple needs a new product to expand, and it will probably be a car. A car that bends if a fat person sits in it, a car that doesn't unlock if the owner is black, a car that doesn't steer if you hold the wheel the wrong way, and a car that you have to replace if a light bulb dies because it's soldered and glued to the motherboard. :-)

androids phones are programmed using java code. java coding is me... moreHow is this related with cheap LCD screens and outdated cameras on iphones? Definitely not Java programming is it? How about water proofing and wireless charging, is that due to programming as well? - No apple is just pretending to be luxurious but are made on budget.. in fat in the cheapest possible way, from cheapest available mainstream components in cheapest Chinese factories. It is not only the size of the ram we are talking about - every single component on iphone is inferior. That is camera, screen, battery etc.
As well it is not true that iphones doesn't lag - true is that because there are less options people are usually makes less mistakes on iphones and are less likely to mess-up something. Even though I had maynly been using flagship Samsungs, I know for a fact there are no lags on A3 or J5.. which both costs 5th of the iphone price... so wrong again.

All the custom Roms/Kernels/Apps i tried when i was a Nexus user were all buggy unreliable junk made from wannabe cherry picking developers on XDA..I enjoy my Jailbroken 6S iPhone/Apple watch combo way more than both of my heavily modded,rooted,xposed N5 N6 Nexus i had during my so called open source days..Androids dont hold value and feel like junk to me now after using a JB iPhone..

androids phones are programmed using java code. java coding is memory hungry. dats why android phones have more ram. and that ram is needed. apart from the flagship phones, the rest suffer from lag and freezing bcuz they dont have enough ram.
iphones os is coded in a simpler way where it isnt memory hungry so 1 or 2 gb ram is more than enough to run everything.
dont always assume big numbers is all that matters. theres a reason android uses more ram and iphones dont need 6 gb ram when 1 or 2 is plenty.
if android was programmed in a different way then all android phones would also have 1 or 2 gb ram.
Anonymous, 27 Apr 2016So you want them to fix your phone for free after its out of warranty? The truth is that the lust for money from aple is insatiable,
1, they took my money for an app that was labeled free several times d in App Store, was never refunded, though it was said that it would be, had to remove my card details
2, even in warranty, you would still be charged for their service, never paid a dime to Nokia care when in warranty
3, nothing ground breaking in their devices, not the screen, Display, battery, camera, except for the a9 chip and then charge like hell when u. Can't send another fone a video of your birthday yet u claim to have a great camera.
4, no customization whatsoever, so boring, was actually surprised to learn that ifone users buy ring tone... Lol i can't believe it.

... moreYour service won't be denied, because they want your money. You pay, they will fix it. Both of my friends had the same problem with antennas on iPhones 6 (service issues). They got charged 70 pounds for a replacement.
True, you probably won't get a replacement phone, if you buy it on contract, but once you buy it free of contract, it is possible to get one, unless your phone will return in a short time.

AppleIsBest, 27 Apr 2016This is nothing. People was waiting for Iphone SE and it sells like crazy. ThanxIf anything, the SE will cannibalize from the 6s.

Proof? I dont know anyone with Apple care who got denied service.
They actually gave me a replacement device to use while mine was getting its battery replaced. How many Android OEMs do that?
Anonymous, 27 Apr 2016Specs arent everything. Customer service and quality of software is above all else. It's a matter of opinion. I don't like iOS and it's closed and simplified interface. Customer service is good, providing you're willing to pay for it (a lot of claims are facing additional fees, even if the devices are still under warranty). What works for you, doesn't have to work for me. And you know what also Apple has "above all else"? Price. You fanboys keep forgetting about that.

With updates, that brick the devices and security updates, that people are waiting for a month to get sorted. Also, do you understand how OS works with different hardware? Apple has a several phones to update and make it work (which seems to be a problem for them to do it recently). Google has to make sure, that Android is gonna work on hundreds of different devices (that are not even made by them). Take that under consideration.

Srb Srb, 27 Apr 2016Same for less money? Sorry but galaxy s7 or s7 edge is less??I was talking about the value for money. What you get and what you pay. Galaxy line is around the same price point (or was at launch), but you can't say the specs are the same as iPhone 6. Take any Android phone with similar specs to iPhone and compare the price.
