AnonD-188257, 09 Sep 2014Allow me to disagree.
It is all about the margins.
Apple spends a lot of money in developin... moreThat still doesn't account for their steep price on top of steep lacking. ..
And the other half of the equation that had been left out.
. The limitations, lacking, lags, crashes, disorganiztion, and bugs of the "perfectly" stable optimized expensive so premium os
Anonymous, 09 Sep 2014Saying specs mean nothing is more foolish than saying they mean everythingthe reason why specs mean nothing is because the iphone with inferior specs have defeated their cross rivals in speed tests and processing tests. that's why it means nothing.
ip5 beating s3
ip5s beating the s4
IP6 will probably destroy the s5 in specs test
and there is no doubt the ip6 plus will defeat the note 4.
if specs mean so much to you go buy an android phone. No one cares about android anyways.
Killer, 09 Sep 2014Are you god for phones? Please help me. I seek for you! Lol. Nice
FreezeGame, 09 Sep 2014if you say apple charges more it the same as vice versa in M8, z3, s5, notes etc. You can buy ... moreAllow me to disagree.
It is all about the margins.
Apple spends a lot of money in developing their own chipsets, hw design, buying smaller companies for patents or technologies they want to incorporate in their devices, market research, developing of iOS, all that crap invisible to customers like you and me, plus their profit and production costs, they end up with quite a price for a device. That's why they choose to sell their phones via carriers 2 year contracts.
On the other hand, companies like the ones you mentioned, they buy all the components (screens from Samsung or Sharp, or worse, chipsets from Qualcomm, intel, MediaTek, nVidia, etc) Android is free, so all they have to do, is to add their value (whatever they can if they poduce any component) and branding in a nice (or cheap) package and sell it.
Ok Ifans, can you tell me 2 new things Apple brought to the table with their new phones, besides size? The reason everybody is “crazy negative” about the new Iphone is the fact that it’s not very new but Ifans will defend it to the death. Just admit it, the emperor has no clothes. And the fact that apple will sell a ton is meaningless, that like saying one music artist is better that another because their music sells more, not because it’s actually better.
Actually contemplating trying iPhone out again after this release. I really do love the design and have been following it quite closely recently, so that may be a sign. I am a current android user and am happy, but am also open to trying things.

Anonymous, 09 Sep 2014Since it's targeting the Note 4 market, please let me do a little comparison. It started with ... moreMate, specs doesn't mean anything... Apple did something some years ago and paved his way to success: marketing. There is no way they loss that unless they build phones with bad quality, which I doubt. Also there's the fact that the phone is user friendly, plain and simple, like their computers, that's a huge point of sales, the vast majority of people don't like to struggle with complex settings and stuff.
This phone will sell like pancakes because of that, nobody can deny that.
Good luck to Apple and their future customers.
AnonD-188257, 09 Sep 2014hmm... Samsung devices are not worth mentioning due to very poor quality, and cheap materials.... moreWow. And I thought others here had issues and jealous denial. You just brought a whole new level of it.
Mirza-hater, 09 Sep 2014What a coincidence! We have the same name! But I seriously hate my name. Lol. Good day!who's the real mirza? an ifan or an android fan?
FreezeGame, 09 Sep 2014well that's true. People who buy iphones are the ones that have more money because when I put ... moreNot really. Just because you know how to spend money without being scammed does not mean you don't have any.
And just because you foolishly spend lots of money on something or get tricked into it does not mean you are loaded
Welcome to the game Apple iPhone, we love all your "new" features. For you iPhone users, if you need help with all these "new" features, just ask and Android user. We had this stuff for years.
Anonymous, 09 Sep 2014Except it does when apples price is above the best flagships but their offering is below cheap... morewell that's true. People who buy iphones are the ones that have more money because when I put it in an android perspective they think what phone with the best buck price so they're is "caution or conscious" buying behavior so they still careful with the money. it's a different market when I see in my opinion.
Anonymous, 09 Sep 2014But in the end the just cry "optimize" or call you a troll...or oh yeah but a7/a8 is... morethat's it, that's all you can come up with? a short answer? optimization! well, good luck to you sir. i rather have something more useful then a phone with optimized just for their own OS.
Mirza-hater, 09 Sep 2014What a coincidence! We have the same name! But I seriously hate my name. Lol. Good day!Yup really BIG coincidence.
Hope you enjoy your iPhone 6
Good day to you too
Anonymous, 09 Sep 2014Since it's targeting the Note 4 market, please let me do a little comparison. It started with ... morehmm... Samsung devices are not worth mentioning due to very poor quality, and cheap materials...let's just discuss the Super AMOLED technology...
I agree with the fact that in theory it is better than IPS in power consumption and deeper black but the implementation so far is really bad. The matrix has way too much black for each pixel which translate in pixels being visible with a naked eye even over 300 dpi and an overall "dirty" shade of white as well as poor visibility in sunlight.
To understand exactly what I am talking about, you can compare the pixel matrix of an IPS (let's say Sony Xperia Z2 if you like Adroids) with the matrix of a Super AMOLED whichever you consider the best and check the area covered by the subpixels against the black area of a single pixel.
