no name, 15 Jun 2017i think u r the one that really stupid.... can u read english ? i compare iphone 4 to 2017 mid... moreHahaha, I can read English but can you write it? Man instead of spending on iPhone upgrade, spend the money on grammar lessons.
All iPhone is better, you didn't explain how, guess you are stupid enough to not even know what you are arguing about.
Smooth operation? galaxy J series can browse the web, facebook and whatsapp equally smoothly. Best camera? Joke of the year, lets list the devices with better cameras than iPhone, Galaxy S7, S8, Note 5, Google Pixel, Google Pixel XL, Sony Xperia XZ, Huawei P10, One Plus 5 are a few and in manual mode, even mid range android devices can shoot better. iPhone doesn't allow manual mode, I've posted pics in blog on a redmi 4 which shot better pictures than iPhone 7 because iPhone's shutter speed couldn't be changed.
Battery life? see for yourself, s8 is 84 hours, ip7 is a measly 61 hours and 7 plus is 75
you don't even know how octa core works, there are two clusters of quad cores 4 are power efficient and 4 are performance oriented and phone switches between the two according to demand therefore s8 has better battery life than iphone 7 despite having a better(oled and high resolution) display.
fast charging kills battery? are you that stupid? guessy you are in the same league as those who said they don't need bigger displays when iphone 4s was launched, if apple can't do something than it is not good, well good for us that we can use the technology that fools will have half decade later. have you seen the battery capacity deterioration charts or do you want me to post a link for that too?
did you even read my first comment, I switched from an iPhone 7 plus to a Galaxy S8+, why did I switch? because my secondary phone, an entry level 3 year old infinix hot 2 on android nougat provided more freedom in software than any iPhone ever so I made the decision to get android as my primary phone too.
If you can read English than read the posting rules. You didn't post a single "Valid" point about what iPhone does better so keep commenting the same things for the sake of the argument is both stupid and time wasting.
If you have some valid point, I'd be happy to read it. But don't reply childish answers like I compared mid-rangers so you can't. Because if you do, then I must answer it already "go cry to your mama".

What iphone does better??? u r really naive and stupid... alll iphone is better or u call say the best..... the smoothest operation.... facebook whatsapp web browsing... and the smoothest gaming .... one of the best camera.... what u want more... it is better than the battery drain s8 and note 5 with octa core that drain battery and not smooth....fast charging that kill battery very fast.....and many many more tired to explain to stupid like u that cant even read properly what i write before..
Please buy an iphone to use or read more before u comment u know? after u use u will understand bro??
no name, 14 Jun 2017since u dont mention my name but from what u write i assume u r replying to me.....
bro....... moreiPhone 4 with iOS 7.1.1 can't hold up against galaxy star plus with kitkat, it hangs and stutters with iOS 7 and you think it fares better bravo man, you didn't say what an iPhone does better.
And I was talking in general but since you exhibit the same behaviour as i mentioned and Attention seeker as all iDiots you immediately presumed that I was talking to you. well that says something, previously we had plastic girls in schools, now we have iFans in general population. Showing off their stupidity.
UsmanHSh, 13 Jun 2017when Apple fans can't bear the things that their phone isn't capable of that androids were cap... moresince u dont mention my name but from what u write i assume u r replying to me.....
bro.... before i use ios i already use a few android phone..... even now i still use android phone as my second phone(but most of the time stay at home).... i say those after comparing those 2 system....
iphone will obsolete in a year or 2 ??? in your dream sir..... even some using iphone 4 still every smooth nowadays....why because apple has its own system even better than some of those 2017 mid range android..... muahahahaah.... wake up sir.... study more sir...open your mind
when Apple fans can't bear the things that their phone isn't capable of that androids were capable of 2-3 years ago, they start stating that Apple is the most that or this company or number 1 in the world. Man u bought a device that will be obsolete in a year or two not the shares in Apple inc., and it ain't a Vertu, Lamborghini or Porsche edition phone either, state its functionality not the brand.
Also people outside of Apple world, people have a lot of choice in what they can purchase so they discuss advantages or disadvantages of every choice and don't show the fanboyism, where Apple fans keep an blind eye on what their devices can't do and blow the cons discussed of an android device out of proportion.
no name, 12 Jun 2017Wowww nowadays so manyy sammy fans here.... what u saying alll is tech spec sheet on paper.... morevery well said sir.. this is the point where android/Sammy fans cannot digest into their brains.. this is not about how powerful your spec is. but this is about how optimize your hardware down to the software.. and by the way... IOS is way above than any other smartphone maker because IOS gives support to their older devices even if its 4 years old.. while Sammy/android smartphone maker cannot guarantee you a 3 years support for the OS.
Laci..., 11 Jun 2017You have to get over it: iphones are midrange, 200 usd craps. They are advertised as "high-end... moreWowww nowadays so manyy sammy fans here....
what u saying alll is tech spec sheet on paper......
butttt what u sammy fan not understand is...
1. Brand..... apple is the highest brand value in the world right now ....the highest brand in smartphone world.....samsung is way below apple in brand value..... is it like comparing a ferrari with a kia.... lollll....
2.IOS exclusively os..... where u can get ios beside apple product..... cheap china set top android box noo..... cheap $100 android phone ....? no..... u cannot get ios.... to remind there is many new appsss exclusive to ios.... of course some is not gooddd but how about the good one....u can onli get it by fruit logo...... thats why ps4 and apple product is so selling and desired ....exclusive appsss.... thats the onli lagendary item left behind by steve job that ensure apple is no.1 for many2 year to come....
3. Battery..... samsung is lacking behind with those battery drain issue in note 5 try to resolve by increasing in note 7 but explode then reduce it back to 3000mah in s8 but battery drain come back... lolllllll ..... apple on the other hand very good smootth fast gaming with only dual core but with good battery life with only 2900 mah.... read it faster speed and smoother gaming than s8 which usesss battery draining octa octa octa core processore.....why it is faster ?? because appss developer can adjust based on ios app requirement to make it super smooth compare to android use by thousand...
4. Components quality is no.1 and no heating issue...
Thats y samsung and other manufacturer with highest spec sheet on paper is losing for many 2 year to come..
Giesecke & Devrient invented the nano-SIM. Apple adopted the standard.
Apple fans....when you are clueless, then just make stuff up.
What's gigabit LTE? My old iPhone 6s+ achieved 176.42 Mbps over LTE at Toronto Pearson Airport. LTE, not Wi-Fi.
UsmanHSh, 11 Jun 2017Man atleast list valid disadvantages and list em in English then we will think about answering... moreAlso iPhone has no independent bluetooth, no free file sharing via USB (needs itunes interface), no custom ringtones can be set. Apple is a living joke.
Tech-9, 10 Jun 2017I know a game: I list you advantages of the iPhone, and for every advantage, you have to list ... moreMan atleast list valid disadvantages and list em in English then we will think about answering them, I've just switched from an iPhone 7 Plus to a Samsung S8+ so I'll answer each of your point and score accordingly, then I'll provide 2x features for whatever your score is.
-CDMA support idk but samsung support whatever signal enough to talk
-EVDO support idk but samsung support whatever signal enough to talk
-LTE band 27 idk but samsung support whatever signal enough to talk
-LTE band 29 idk but samsung support whatever signal enough to talk
-LTE band 30 idk but samsung support whatever signal enough to talk
Samsung does support more bands than iPhone on its unlocked global version vs. iPhone's unlocked global version and it isn't necessary for a locked phone to support to support more bands than its network operator needs for global roaming coverage. (0 Points)
-no inferior versions for specific parts of the world (compare EU vs US variant)
Does having 2 versions affect real world usage between two devices in anyway? (0 Points)
S8 has way better handling than iPhone, even s8+ is easier to hold and use than the smaller iPhone. (-1 point)
S8 Supports both samsung pay and android pay, also compatibility with magnetic stripe card readers so it has more presence around the world than apple pay.
-no image retention because of LCD
I have yet to find even an s3 display damaged from image retention, btw did you hear apple's gonna use oled in next iphone because it is apparently superior, something that was present even before samsung made android flagships. Google Samsung wave. (-1 Point)
All flagships even some Chinese ones have it, only they don't consider it a major feature to brag about. (0 Points)
-wider color gamut
Wider and better than AMOLED? (0 Points)
People use that? I only used that once or twice when I bought the phone (iPhone 7 plus) to show some people and only nifty trick is when switching from one app to another but still, i prefer to double tap the task switcher which is easier when using one hand. Still you get (1 Point)
a fancy name for vibrate on touch, well android had that years ago. google blackberry storm, even that had it. (0 Point)
-longer update support (5 vs 2 years)
Apple has longer support but updates bring features that are copied from other OSs. I appreciate updates only for security patches. (1 Point)
Yes i admit iOS is a safer OS in hands of every monkey playing with matches but guess what dumb phones are even safer. they did dumb down iOS to make it safer. (0 Points)
-apple integration (Handoff, AirPlay, AirDrop, iCloud, iMessage,...)
Samsung sidesync, Wifi Direct file sharing, DLNA and Chromecast support and I guess cast tvs are more popular than Apple tv), Samsung cloud and Google Drive with unlimited storage for free), Allo, Duo.....
-faster (phone buff speed test, geekbench single core score)
What about multi-core test? because in real world use, none is faster than the other but try video editing in both phones and you'll know which one's faster.
iPhone lacks memory card slot nor supports otg universally (-1 Point)
-superior RAM management
did I mention iOS is dumbed down, apps can't do much in background if that's the ram management needed than Nokia S40s are the most robust phones ever, too bad such phones don't pass as "smart phones" in modern world. (-1 Point)
-quad LED flash (Samsung still uses 1? iPhone had this years ago with the 5s lol)
too bad, Samsung's single led puts out more lumens than 4 leds in iPhone (-1 Point)
-true tone flash
yet the white balance has been always off, too cold in outside pics and too warm in indoor photography (0 Points)
-720p@240fps (at least according to GSMArena)
World has moved to 4k and s6 has these fps long ago (-1 Point)
-front face detection
Samsung even has Augmented Reality filters, front face detection is even in cheap 100$ android's, why so desperate man? (-1 Point)
Lame you read the features on GSMArena's spec sheet and wrote every feature without knowing what it means and if it is something useful to compare or not. (0 Points)
Yes, speakers are better on iPhone this time. (+1 Point)
-backward compatible connector (back to iPhone 5, S8 isn't compatible with S7)
Buhahaha, samsung is more consistent and backward compatible, for 7 phones it was same, iPhone changed it after just 5 phones, and usb is still a more popular standard than lightning or whatev. (-1 Point)
-much better fingerprint scanner location
I agree with you here 100% (+1 Point)
-less depreciation makes for higher resale value
-no forced edge screen which is hated by many
Hated by iSheeples? it is better, why's apple moving toward it than in iPhone 8 (-1 Point)
-aluminum back isn't shattering
neither beautiful (0 Points)
Haha, single off screen button, man iPhone lacks task switching button and back button yet you come up with this. (-1 Point)
Lets score: -8, do note that I did combine similar invalid points, if I'd scored em separately you'd have gotten way more humiliation and worst score. Reply with 16 points that make iPhone a better phone and we'll see.
mark, 10 Jun 2017Reality: Once apple release a product fandroid will make so much noise :)
Apple advertise h... moreWhat you say is true but the same thing goes for Apple fans.
As soon as sammy or some other Android phone manufacturer puts
up a new phone, what people is always there to say how bad these phones are.
iOS lovers or Android lovers are all the same. All they like to do is to talk trash about
people that use a different OS then themselves.
I use Android but my twin brother use iOS.
Do not see a reason to trash him or anyone else for that.
We all like and need different kind of things on our phones.
Will not disturb more now. Keep on trashing each other, seems to be what you all like
Tech-9, 10 Jun 2017I know a game: I list you advantages of the iPhone, and for every advantage, you have to list ... moreYou have to get over it: iphones are midrange, 200 usd craps. They are advertised as "high-end", so that the blind, ignorant masses eat that up.
Don't fall for their rubbish tricks.
On S8 Sammy ridiculously f...ed up the fringerprint scanner, though it has the neverbeforeseen, gorgeous infinity screen. Belive me, Apple will copy that screen in I8.
But let's just don't bother with S8. Let's compare the S7 Edge to I7.
I will tell you what's important:
-The S7 is a marvellous engeneering miracle. It's much more beautiful. Your mind just blows up from the delight you feel, when holding it in your hand. Iphone, the king of bezels is like it came from the 20th century. It's a DISASTER!
-S7 has a way better screen, deal with it, from the I8 on, Apple will USE (not just copy :) Sammy's screens. Once you have a flagship amoled screen, you never go back! The other screens are just utter rubbish! They are nonsense compared to S's amoled. Deal with it!
-S. has the most wonderful and most meaningful technology of our time: WIRELESS CHARGING. Once you go wireless, YOU JUST CAN'T GO BACK! You just can't apprehend the greatness of this simple, but useful tech. YOU CAN FORGET ABOUT BATTERIES AND CHARGING. Of course A. will copy this in I8 (5 or 6 years BEHIND Sammy!)
-Yes, glass is a bummer, I'd use some quality plastic that would be better, but they use it because of the "premium feeling". Apple will also copy the glass back, when it goes with wireless charging.
-S7 has a much better battery.
-S7 HAS indication leds!
-S7 has ip68 water protection (not the funny ip67), and it had it for years.
-S7 has VR as an introductory feature (it will be amazing next year, with the 4K screens).
-S7 has better camera, though Apple is slowly catching up.
-S7 is faster. Let's not get started over this. What count, are the real world applications. (One exception here: the loading time of bigger games. But that's niche)
-IOS is slowly catching up to Android, but the latter is still the king. (Just a little detail: back arrow in the upper left corner, so that you can't reach it :DD?? Oh, GOD)
It's like 10:0 for Sammy :D.
In every one of these meaningful aspects Apple lags behind Sam. YEARS! Many, many, many, many years. So yeah, ridiculous midrange hardware for 3 times it's real value.
Thanks, but no thanks.
Q, 10 Jun 2017Where did u live up till now? Mars?
Know WHY Qualcomm quickly released their X16 LTE modem ... morewow where you live and how much you pay per month for your contract that you can watch 1hour uncompressed 4k ?
here in uk you can get arround 60gb for 30-40£ which will be enough for hour watching
dont be silly its not 2020 its 2017 not only 4k is not widely available and even so on 5" phone is stupid but also operators cant give you speeds like this maybe once for a few seconds you can reach 1gbps but constantly while walking arround or sitting in a train just not yet
hell you should be happy with 150mbps which again is not everywhere at the moment ~100mbps is ok
And since apple is used mostly by US consumers as far as i know you will be lucky to have even 50mbps all the time over there so at the moment 1gbps modem is nothing
and dont tell me future proofing since the only people who care about 500mbps or 1gbps are not people who will stay with that phone in the next 5years they will buy the next flagship next year :)
The reason why apple is not supporting Gigabit speeds,is that the apple focuses on Terabit speeds XD
Not a big deal. Nevertheless, having two completely different chipsets for the same model is a big no-no. One will without a doubt be inherently worse, yet still the same price as the better one...***k apple
