The day this phones start rolling out I will have to update my social network status:
"Having a hard laugh seeing the sheep pay over 2x for a 2012 Nexus 4 that came out over 2 years too late!"
I'm no phone geek, but I've had my iP5 for about 1 year and it simply works. I had a S3 before and had software prbls and the OS is not as stable + the icons are too easy to move (esp when you do NOT want them to go anywhere). I agree that Apple is overpriced, but for me it gets the job done.
I like the Wall Hugger comment - a big downside to the iP5.

Professional photographers do not even take photos at 16 megapixels unless they are printing a poster size photo.

Totally, i understand that im not going to argue with you, you are those funny paper specs guys... Funny these still exist, cant you guys undstand how those companies brainwash you with bigger numbers which doesnt turn into real use?
This same happened last year with iPhone 5S, yet it had one of the very best cam om phones and was most powerful device in the market. (Well it still might be) I have no doubts that iPhone 6 going to do exact same.

Let me be sarcastic here, myopic Apple fans don't go to Android threads and:
- Say things like "feature XYZ that actually works on the iPhone, hence it's innovation for Apple"
- Call Samsung other names such as "Crapsung" while making clear Apple is the one and only true innovator/premium device maker
- Complain about some mythical lag that 2014 flagships supposedly have but oddly their iPhone 4S doesn't
- Point out every two posts Android is an inferior copy of iOS
and many other precious gems...
All of which obviously (according to you) DO NOT HAPPEN -- AT ALL.

So you mean if Apple put a 16MP camera on the new iPhones, they would drain the battery faster? And that's why you support Apple's decision for keeping the same 8MP camera for four years in a row?!:D
Anonymous, 15 Sep 2014Very competitive specs? Right, if their competing with some midrange Android, like 8MP cam and... moreMore megapixels does not mean that the quality of the image is better. Other factors contribute to this, such as the size of the sensor and the amount of light it can subsequently let in etc. Therefore, the iPhone with its 8 megapixel camera could still produce the same quality images as the 16 megapixel camera on the s5.

It's a phone, not a computer! the mother board can't take all that crap without consequence! not to mention, android still hasn't figured out the apps running on the background crap and ultimately causing lag for the phone.
Samsung has figured a way to some extent to fight the lag by producing phones with high processing power and ram, but again, as I said means more power, and a faster battery drain , and in the end a shorter life spam for the phone.
that with inferior specs, the iphone5s actually outperformed the Galaxy s5 in the most important functions.
Turning on Camera
Taking the photo
Opening the app (google maps)
Opening the text message app for both phones,
opening web browswer, (apple was safari, s5 was chrome)
surfing the internet. (pages loaded faster on the 5s)
loading a simple page, (the 5s did better)
a specific tests on the same apps,
(the sims, the app loaded much faster on the 5s)
so what does this tell you? IOS is much more efficient, and a beast of it's own. the only thing Samsung s5 did better was
"Bench mark tests" totally useless, since it got beaten by the 5s,
and s5 turned on more quickly then the 5s, and it also turned off more quickly, but again, not a problem.
Phone perfomrance iphone 5s>>>>>>>> galaxy s5.
specs mean nothing. give it to the s5 it has a camera.
and this was the 5s, lets not even talk about the 6 regular.

Right, if their competing with some midrange Android, like 8MP cam and 2MP front cam (same since four years ago!), a gig of ram, sub FHD screen (on ip6), unexpandable internal memory, etc. Some Android phones out there even have 8MP for their front cam,for goodness sake! One even has 13MP! The only reason Apple keep the specs that low is because they want even bigger profit margin, and that's a fact! (Only you, faithful Apple fans, who believe otherwise:). While the Note 4 has gone with 16MP with OIS, 3.7MP front with with selfie mode, enhanced stylus, QHD display at 5.7" (which has just been rated the best display to date by DisplayMate) and even the amazing VR capability! O yeah, the internal storage also starts at 32GB! You understand what I'm saying now?
Smirenie, 15 Sep 2014At least buy Sony, not Apple, it goes back fast and will be faster. Just for good advise. Next... moreSorry, but Sony phones are not different from other Android phones. It's the OS and the 32 bit processors.
By the way, if you buy an iPhone and you don't like it you can sell it with very little loss. For Android phones you lose a lot of money when you sell them.

iPhones sell, what's new. Apple's execs are laughing to the bank for their "keep the specs low and the price high" strategy that works once again. Congrats Apple. As for value for money, I'd go for the Note 4, to appreciate Samsung for all the extra they've added. And the VR implementation on a mobile device, that's innovation.

If you feel iPhone is the one you should buy, please do so by all means. I was just stating what I have seen with couple of my friends' phones.
