Hi I have one doubt which one should i buy Android or iPhone. My Co-Worker has some songs and Pictures on his phone that i want to transfer to my Phone easily and faster, Android Phone or iPhone, which is best for these kinds of tasks ?
Anonymous, 19 Aug 2014If you have to ask you have probably never tried an android...unless you tried an old cheapo a... moredoes cost increase by a huge amount when specs are increased?
cost of build an iPhone 5s =$218
cost of build a galaxy S5 = $237
4gb ram can run Windows 8 desktop with ease. Android just pushes up specs to make people believe their next gen devices are faster and better. All they do is convince software developers to develop un-optimized software (bloatware). The very reason why Microsoft and Apple avoid higher amount of ram. In fact Microsoft dedicated 25% of its resources to optimising WP and their base device is the Lumia 520
AnonD-13148, 19 Aug 2014You forgot this is not Android that lags on 3GB RAM. Most Android users deny their devices are... moreyou forget to mention, that even if an android device lags, it has support for:
USB OTG (with NTFS support up to 8 TB), MHL, any Bluetooth device (gamepad, keyboard, audio, storage, you can even browse your computer from your android, or browse your android from your computer), use a USB hub to connect up to 8 different devices via generic USB, micro SD card up to 128GB soon 256GB (very useful for 4K recording where a 60 min video can be up to 20GB), NFC (which makes it easier to connect with other devices and pay some gods)... and many more, WITHOUT the need of any external or EXPENSIVE adapter, it is not about lag, or not lag, its about what you can really do with your device...
NOW on to this matter.. the RAM memory...
it is about the usefulness of a single device, physical design is not all, and in this particular case, we are talking about RAM memory on a device that is basically a small computer, now, in ALL computers (and devices that work in the same fashion) RAM memory is linked with data processing, execution and performance, and if my 4 year old cousin can understand that less ram MEANS less performance and less capabilities, why cant you people get that?
is not about IOS or android...
it is about people paying for an overpriced device, when they could be getting a much more decent device, at a lower price FROM THE SAME COMPANY, so here is not to compare between one or the other, it is to compare what you could be doing with an iphone6 with 3GB ram, compared with what you can with an iphone6 but with just 1GB ram, simple as that, same device, same company.. different amount of ram, even a 4yr old can understand that.. why cant you people get it.. it is your money you are throwing away, not asking for a better product
Seriously, Apple is out of their mind... this is much like Gates with 640KB memory.
1GB ram means they are not going to open the multi app parallel usage capacity any time soon. The biggest draw back of iOS is now the RAM!!
Anonymous, 19 Aug 2014I guess iFans are just easily to be fooled. Imagine there is another company competes with App... moreYes you will get more useless stuffs. More useless stuffs is better, isnt it?
Nowadays memory are so cheap and small, this is so disappointed for apple if this is true... 2015 is coming soon,, still old age 1GB mobile device for this price range phone.@@
Dot-WiFi, 19 Aug 2014can it beat apple performance ?
If you have to ask you have probably never tried an android...unless you tried an old cheapo at best maybe.
Are you familiar with iOS even?
And again...even if that was true that it ran a lot better on less hardware....which its not. A tiny bit, but that's cause restriction and lacking.
Even if it was true it is only because of the system wide restrictions and lack of function...
Which in turn does not justify them selling you 1GB ram, 8mp, 4 inch not hd, 1.3 dual core, and 1500mah battery all for the same price as
2-3GB ram, 13-20mp, 5-6inch full HD up to QHD, 2-2.5ghz quad and octa core, and 3000-4000mah batteries.
How well it does or does not work with those specs does not change how old and cheap they are in comparison.
And don't talk about optimizing either because all the other oems have to spend countless hours on optimizing and advertising too. Plus they have to spend the time and money to develop all the parts they use and that apple uses from them.
I guess iFans are just easily to be fooled. Imagine there is another company competes with Apple on the same os base, you then will get more for your money. But for now, nothing you can do but stay as brain-washed.
AnonD-13148, 19 Aug 2014You forgot this is not Android that lags on 3GB RAM. Most Android users deny their devices are... moreIsn't that the same for Apple product? My friend got use to the poor battery she just let it go. It's like 8hrs mostly standby time before it runs out and she's complaining like mad BUT cos it's iPhone....
if the ram stays the same, but the resolution substantially increases ( I can't see it will quad retina with 1gb of ram), performance will suffer, I presume the resolution won't increase then
Anonymous, 19 Aug 20141GB ram in 2014¿ Is this a joke >? You forgot this is not Android that lags on 3GB RAM. Most Android users deny their devices are laggy, but some just get used to the lag.
