Someone please explain the word "Fan" to me. All companies only want to make more money and they don't give even a cent to their fans so I'm not a fan of any company, music band, sport team, any thing at all because there is no benefit in being a fan for me. Today I might get Samsung tomorrow maybe Apple and the next month maybe LG and its obvious that none of them worth the price I pay and my phone brand is not defining my personality.

Why do you peiple want everything the same? Why would... moreIm sorry, I'm not racist, don't get me wrong, but I would NEVER touch a Huawei or any other Chinese brand!
There are only 2 brands for me: Sony or Sammy. The other brands are just wannabes In my opinion. We're talking high end flagships here. I'm not interested in anything lower.
Ps my phone is not the same, believe me! I've rooted it and changed so much that a normal person would have difficulties using it XD
Stock is for isheeps!
Truth is that the last year belongs to Samsung. They have made the right moves and not only that, they "listened" to their costumer complaints and improved where needed. Lg on the other hand is trying to bring fresh things and makes bold moves which might turn out for good or might not. HTC gave their best and made a pretty good device with minor flaws with the HTC 10. Competition is good and diversity of choices benefits us, the consumers. We must not blindly follow one company but evaluate our options and needs and get what it fullfills them.
Guys stop the fight here!
Samsung has a larger competition to apple. And still they manage to win. Isn't it great? Oh wait, let me explain.
ios is a totally different os from android.. Those used to ios would rarely shif to androids and vice versa..
So, apple has no competition with other brands coming up with ios.. But, on the other hand, there are hundreds of android phones available, flagship specs, similar pricing, competing with Samsung's S7..
So when it comes to choosing android, its a choice between HTC, LG, Samsung, Huawei, or even Sony, Blackberry. But, choosing ios = apple.. Only apple..
Even with bigger competition, Samsung manages to be on top.. Even if u are not so a Samsung fanboy (even I am not), you would still agree, hands down, s7 is the best phone money can buy right now..
Best in class display, camera, specs, design plus waterproofing, wireless charging, expandable memory and great battery life (Edge has a bonus here)..
Coming to apple's 6s, definitely it has Touch sensitive display and great performance.. But? I am still okay with a 720p display, but a poor battery? Nah, no.. Ya, the same reason i didn't like s6 due to the smaller battery..
So did i mean to say 6s is bad? No definitely not. Its still one of the best devices. But..... Keep in mind, even with lower cost hardware compared to others in similar price tag, apple is charging a bomb (which is why they still hold maximum profit in the smartphone market, even with lower sale)... And i-fans still keeps protesting when someone dislikes the price.. Guys, comeon.. Lower the price, the better is for u.. Nothing else..
samsung is always been a shipping leader .. they keep shipping and in the end clear the inventory by giving BOGO offers and free with other stuffs

Why do you peiple want everything the same? Why would I even choose samsung if the UI was the same as stock Android? I better get a nexus for half the price and forget about other oems
Luka B, 05 May 2016Why? It's actually good and has tons of cool features. What Samsung needs to do is to get rid ... moreActually I think it is pretty much nicer than anything android has to offer but the fact that if you buy a flagship then another comes out you will be stuck on old touchwiz is somewhat bad treatment.. unless they release their home launcher and services on play store, Samsung will still be a no after I bought the note 4 even before note 5 was announced and still bad support.. low end devices have theme stores and not a flagship
I'm going with Sony too. The S7 is really cook, I admit that, but I hate TouchWiz. I mean the design is awful from my point of view. I'm sick of this "material" design..
I hope to buy the X Performance maybe in August or September, when Sony will probably release a device with SD823, so the price on the XZ will be lower.
Sammy is very well known to be the brand with the most amount of bloatware. On the other hand, Sony is very close to vanilla stock., not to mention they provide on their website unlocking procedures for bootloaders, which allows you to fully root your device. If you try to root the latest Sammy devices, you loose the Knox security feature. I'm not 100% sure though.
Either way, I would never choose crapple! Bleah!
I feel that their os is so restricted that it offends my IQ.
In the end, no matter what Android phone I will get, it will surely be rooted from the first week or so, so I can change the DPI, fonts, etc.

If all looked the same, why would you choose one over the other? Specs are the same now on every device
Anonymous, 05 May 2016Samsung need to drop touchwiz and adopt stock android like the htc 10 while it may not be comp... moreWhy? It's actually good and has tons of cool features. What Samsung needs to do is to get rid of unnecessary apps and get a normal update system. And cut down a bit on new phones with basically the same specs but a new OS version...
Yeah and what is in it for the consumers? Buy a flagship then get ditched after a while receive bad outdated software updates.. the new flagship deserves better hence we do not get the new touchwiz or the new features.. what's the point?
Anonymous, 05 May 2016I'm huge Sony fan. So I never buy Samsung or iPhone. Lol.Sony is done.The only specialty that they can do,is making their phones waterproof.Thats all.Nothing else.They are not able to make any innovation,not like Samsung,or Lg.The only innovation of Sony was the 4 k display,which is an overkill for the Cpu,and for the Gpu,and draining the battery at no time...
With Note 6 and Note 6 Duos around iPhone 7 launch, not sure where Apple will be placed.....I have iPhone 6 Plus (not using it though) and Note 5 (not using again) but I feel Note 5 screen, smoothness, recent Marshmallow updates etc....they are top again. Apple is still behind on many fronts except may be their A9 processor which seems to be good in iPhone 6S/6S Plus. No one is missing the force touch thing
"but also the iPhone SE didn't exactly fly off the shelves as Apple hoped."
Mind you too, iPhone SE arrived sooner than the G5.
Who cares, they're both greedy oems, let them k! Ll each other for all i care. Though i really dislike the fruit company, they've never been the best in anything except overpricing. The s7 did a great job this Year though, kudos to them but either way, these oems need to bring down their prices.
Anonymous, 05 May 2016I bet Huawei will bury them all it just need some time. Hopefully
Igor Carvalho, 05 May 2016Wow... people really like to take sides here... So many trolls. The S7 is really a great prod... moretry telling that to these readers...and oh if u want preaty head over to the theme store mate there will be something to make "lagwiz" as they call it better lookin. ;)
