But you literally said it's unfair to iphone because S5 just came out. If you think about it what you just said is that S5 just came out but outsold the iphone already.
parabol, 24 Apr 2014who says iphone uses inferior & older technologies than galaxy flagship? just because it h... moreYou just started your comment off with "Who says Iphone uses inferior and older technology than flagships just because it ueses" and then listed three things alone that it uses less and inferior of......But don't think it uses inferior .....Seriously??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????? And Android uses ram efficiently too. It can in fact do more with it. And there are smaller Androids as well. Plus a compact 5inch is fairly usable for many people too.
Then you just went on to make an entire paragraph of misconceptions...
But I will even play along with that just to make the point clear to you. Ok. Hopefully you will have a better understanding then.
Lets say that IOS is a good bit more efficient. It's still because it has more restrictions and less functions. Android supposedly NEEDS faster chips. Fine so it has more powerful and more expensive chips and ram.
So just becuase IOS does less and can run smoother means it's ok to charge the same for less and less expensive chips?
You said it's made to use in one hand and that's why it has smaller screen right? And that supposedly Full HD screen has no use.
Either way. Tell me the cost of a 4 inch screen that is not even HD compared to even the Z1 compact Triluminos HD screen at 4.3 inches.
Now tell me the cost compared to a 5 inch FullHD screen. Now tell me the cost compared to a 5 inch FullHD Amoled screen. You realize that an Amoled screen the same size and resolution as the Iphone display would still cost more right?
You say it's smaller for easier use. Does that change the fact that smaller and less material equate to less cost?
How about battery? Ok you would say it has good enough battery life. Does it change the fact of the cost of the battery? It has a battery still almost the same size as the Iphone 4. It has a about 1560MAH compared to 1440mah battery. Compare that to the cost of the 2,800mah in the S5, 3200mah of Note or G2. Some of which you can even remove.
How about Sd slot? You pay the same price for 16GB or more for an Iphone. But most of those same price or cheaper devices have card slots to increase storage up to an additional 128GB.
NFC, Wifi Direct, bluetooth transfer to other phones which even flip phones could do before the iphone came out. Some of those even had file managers.
How about LTE? Wasn't the Iphone 5 the first to have LTE?
You say IOS is more efficient and smooth. Ok. It also has system wide lock down completely restricted. Like I said. Even bluetooth and file manager that fliphones 10 years ago had. Did you know that the first 3 iphones could not even send MMS until the update that came after? It took til the 3rd to record video. Again. All things prior flip phones could do.
Android needs more powerful hardware. Fine. But it has more powerful hardware. And you can do virtually whatever you want to it. Even a hacked Iphone still has more restriction than a non hacked Android.
You can customize it and do basically anything you want to your Android.
USB mass storage mode, launchers, multitasking, transfering files between folders, apps, other phones, and most computers with ease.
You can make the phone look as complicated, simple, cool, weird, anything you want. And you can even do it all on a really cheap one. It will slow it down a little more....But you can still do it if YOU chose.
With IOS you only get what apple lets you have. Plain and simple.
Now we will leave it off there for now. There is more than that. And do not forget the part where I'm letting you know most of those things you said about the differences especially in optimizing are misconceptions. But for your sake I won't drag this on any longer. Except to say one thing. IOS get even heavier and accounts for the most crashes now. Explain that.

Never once do I only defend Samsung or call anyone a troll for just simply "not preferring them".
I reply to lies, exaggerations, trolling, bias, and so forth. And I do so only with facts and logic.
And not to mention...The comment you just replied to has nothing to do with what you just said. It was not a question of who likes Samsung. If you cannot gather what the comment actually means you need to return to school before replying.

This infographic is comparing the first weekend the Galaxy S5 came out to the first weekend when the iPhone 5S came out. Not the current sales of the iPhone 5S during only the first weekend when the Galaxy S5 came out.
you guys need to realize one thing. the comparison is unfair because this is the just now release s5 against an old iphone. i guess most of you samsung users read the wrong thing and any little good news about samsung you guys get excited. Read all the other news that iphone outshines the galaxy's. Face it, galaxy will always play catch up not matter what they do

Then about Samsung features, not "gimmicks": It would have been an iphone, all of you would say, "it's great, it's innovation". It's samsung, it's either "a copy or gimmick".
I'm not defending Samsung but i'm just open minded: for about the same price as other flagships, you get more features, and what then? Is it a problem? You don't have to use them, some will be used by you, others by someone else, everyone has its own usage of the phone.
A few years back then, iphone users were saying, a camera / bluetooth / mms on a phone are "gimmicks"... Just waiting for that next iphone :]
Anonymous, 24 Apr 2014Even if Iphone sells 20 million more than S5 that's still a victory for Samsung when you facto... morewho says iphone uses inferior & older technologies than galaxy flagship? just because it has smaller screen, less RAM & less no. of sensors? iphone is designed to be operated in one hand & ios is designed to use processor & RAM efficiently.
Bigger screens obviously have some advantage but it's difficult to carry. Full HD on s5 has no advantage,it's just a game of numbers. it can't make a phone equivalent to computer(or tablet) but only drains battery. android is open source but needs huge processing power & RAM. therefore fast processor & big RAM is must for android otherwise it wouldn't work. what will people (other than tech geeks) do with openness? Even windows is not open though everyone using it.
I really appreciate super amoled display on S5, but most of the other feature are gimmicks( heartbeat sensor etc.). Who really needs those features in a phone?
Anonymous, 24 Apr 2014So in other words the truth hurts you so you have to first act like it does not mean anything ... moreIt's not the sales figure of whole world, it's america. they buy only phones which is expensive. That's a big reason for a large sell. GS4 was not bad anyway either,but cheaper than iphone & it sold less. In india it's flop coz very few indians are as rich to spend 50k for a phone. Iphone 6 will outsell s5 for sure, simply because every flagship sells much more than its predecessor. that's the fact.

Sales are the most unpredictable item in the universe. You think that sales just like that remains stable for each and every quarter in a year along with the devices consider both old and new? LOL
Even if apple sell 50 million every quarter thats 200 million a year it means the rest of the world chose not to..That could mean a couple of billion peeps chose not to purchase iphone..

It's already available at Globe and Smart Centers and my colleagues are simply enjoying their S5. I still have my S4 and locked in for 24 months. If only I could upgrade without cost.
Om, 24 Apr 2014Wait for iPhone 6,tsunami is coming.....all record will be break as before iPhone 4,4s,5 & 5syeah right, who's following now? lol
I think apple is planning to go court against Samsung on infringement of sales records. One day Apple may claim Graham bell must be its patent . Iphone sales is going to drop because it is too much overpriced and only those who don't know about phones and specifications are buying its phone.
