Why do you wanna go for the camera, if you really wanna use camera then you should go for Canon or Nikon DSLR.
I always hated the way that Apple treats us ... I mean 8m for the main camera ... are you kidding me? ,havn't you seen lumia 1020 or sony z2 or even galaxy s5?
what in the world are they thinking of?!!!!!
i_a_User, 09 Sep 2014Specs are important for Android devices since android OS memory management is poor. Simple app... moreYour opinion. Mine is totally oposite. I find iPhone like a toy used for some social and minigames. Android phones are for better productivity and all about everything you may want to do. I'm talking about real multitasking, keeping docs enceypted, directly printing on your existing lan printer, multiple direct sharing possibilities and so on. So now you see where the toy is. And frankly with a decent 1.2 Ghz dualcore CPU, 1 GB of RAM and an 720p screen you can do alot on an Android device.
Ludo, 09 Sep 2014Those specs are pretty pathetic, not even on par with a 2 years old chinese phone...your comment sound more "pathetic" than the phone spec.
Anonymous, 09 Sep 2014China leaks like a sinking boat. When you send ur "cargo" to China, expect it to ... morewell unfortunately all stuff are made in china....i am sure you can avoid leaking by set up factory in your country.
i_a_User, 09 Sep 2014Specs are important for Android devices since android OS memory management is poor. Simple app... moreThe difference is actually that iOS is made for a few specific devices and doesn't have to take into account a lot of different hardware.
Another thing is the fact that iOS is so closed off and doesn't give the user much freedom makes it easier to keep the performance high.
So, more powerful specs allow Android devices to do so much more with a similar speed (the latest Android flagship don't lag more than the latest iPhones).
What is more surprising is the fact that despite the fact that iOS is a lot more closed than Android, there are still crashes and slow downs, and other problems that you wouldn't expect to happen on something that's supposed to "just work".
I have had less problems with my Android devices than with my iPad and iPod touch lately..
STP, 09 Sep 2014They gonna earn damn hard cash on this phone, no expenses in r&d departement meaning humon... moreDont spread lie to internet if dont know what the RnD cost
of making the new architecture APPLE A8 SOC chipset....
The new powerVR G65xx could closest competition to tegraK1.
China leaks like a sinking boat.
When you send ur "cargo" to China, expect it to be stolen, copied and reproduced.
Copy everything from everyone, cars, boats, smartphone, food, drinks, PC.. whateva. Even Samsung fall to the copying /sell cheap methods of China via Xiaomi Lenovo.
Good thing Apple have their ultimate method: They control the software OS and the design.. China can never copy.. so they are very angry about this.
Ryo Saeba, 09 Sep 2014What does outdated even mean? To me, outdated means that it can no longer run today's software... moreIts will start outdated when developer start to increase texture, shader, physic effect to for direct-X(or any API) for the graphic standization.
This how the SOC business nature run….when they launch new hardware….the will always new 3D games that required the more horsepower to be able render the new type special effect especially the 1st person shooter.
New software will always demand new hardware.
Maybe the next future (ModernCombat-8) or maybe-9....that time you need to change your phone in order to enjoy the games at maximum experience.I means decent frame rates.
Can you see the logic?
STP, 09 Sep 2014They gonna earn damn hard cash on this phone, no expenses in r&d departement meaning humon... moreYeah you're right. They only hired an idiot in china to keep leaking their phones all freaking year.
Specs are important for Android devices since android OS memory management is poor. Simple app/game in android needs more processing speed and more RAM. Android OS needs to improve much... I guess with these (ip6 or ip5) specs android will android will lag a lot (samsung devices probably wont event start)..
Now why the hell people comparing specs ?? I have iphone 5 and samsung s4.. from my user experience I can tell anyone that iPhone is far more better.
Hopeless/jobless/shameless people stop comparing. If you have bought Android and be happy with that even if your experience is ugly. Only good thing in android is widgets & themes..nothings else. It's ridiculous that a phone's OS to run properly need quad, octa,hexa cores, 2/3/4 GB RAMS. These shows how OS's weakness. And dumb people are thinking their phones are much more capable.
They gonna earn damn hard cash on this phone, no expenses in r&d departement meaning humongous profit!
Anonymous, 09 Sep 2014The decision maintaining of "current resolution" is not an "excuse" as wha... moreI totally agree. Literally just a smartphone version of the race to the moon. In the end there's overkill specs and breaking already broken things. They really should have focused on better eco screens and solid state batteries. Battery life is the biggest problem for most users. Fixing that is the ultimate goldmine.
Currently its all about better specs. Better screen resolution. "Metal" bodies.
Flagship specs in a budget price made by a china brand.
No Apple or HTC Fan but they both tend to have more practicality. Major respect to HTC for risking with Ultrapixel.
Ludo, 09 Sep 2014Those specs are pretty pathetic, not even on par with a 2 years old chinese phone...u never used iphone right ?? or maybe u dont know what is iphone ?
Ryo Saeba, 09 Sep 2014So typical to make excuses for Apple's lack of innovation. If that screen is real, it will loo... moreThe decision maintaining of "current resolution" is not an "excuse" as what you accused just now.
This what APPLE doing the market research for mobile practical daily human used.
Higher resolution(1440p) will degrade the device rendering performance and slowing down the overall operation of the operating system.
Even the text font look sharper as what you claimed just now, you still need pinch zoom the screen that will match the human eyes focus perspective(degree) view.
Higher ultra pixel resolution is not "PRACTICALLY USABLE" for mobile because its still with the small size of form factor compare to desktop.
Can you imagine...last 10 years ago...a PC with 17 inch screen monitor 1280x720 still will able to read the text properly and still crisp even compare nowsday standard resolution 1980x1080.
Why the heck 1440p is needed with small size of hand?????
AnonD-299124, 09 Sep 2014What I cant wait for is the A8 processor. The 5S was an absolute monster when it came to perfo... morePaying THOROUGHBRED prices for essential WORK-HORSE covered in an expensive blanket
The A7 now the A8 chip is just ONE area and scoring high here does NOT like a 'wildcard' remove ALL the other areas where the IPhone scores low
This is time that really can't be saved and utilised elsewhere.
The leak will be correct and as there is no 5.5" points to a split release.
Already leaked by China Mobile is the price $850 for the
4.7" and $1012 for the 5.5" which WILL have a better more MP and a faster clock speed than the 4.7" model
This is once more a 8Mp camera phone first used in 2011 the iPhone4S and when I was using the 4.3" 8Mp SGS II.
This will be a major disappointment again and again hype proves to be above reality, but an increase to 10Mp was reasonable
Having made the comment many times before Samsung in the Samsung Galaxy Alpha were stating that they were able to produce a better 'iPhone' than Apple and despite what must be a tongue in cheek comments by Samsung Executive, the Alpha is NOT a "flagship" phone as it did not come in above the S5 nor last years S4.
Samsung flagship btw ALWAYS have memory expansion which th Alpha does not
4.7" costs $850 so both the 16Gb & 32Gb will come in well above the 32Gb Galaxy Alpha.
Nokia on 04/09/2014 announced the MID RANGE LUMIA 830, this is a 5" 10Mp Quad Core phone which will cost €330 or $428 so under half
In a 8 hours we will find out if the iPhone6 will be described as a premium device by Apple.
This phone will turn out to be a larger display iPhone5S which is not what is expected from a market leader
A phone which is ?? times faster than the iPhone5S is nothing to get excited about, and imo the press will praise the look and feel, PREMIUM, but those not in awe of Apple will seriously question how Apple can out so little into a phone and ask do much, Apple have had year and to be so far behind the competition in way of specs and demand more than they do is selling for selling sake.
