Also before ARC many newer devs might had problems keeping track of memory... which will be greeted with a crash.
Apart from the Storyboard and a few things here and there, coding for iOS is a PITA for newcomers (whilst Android is manageable -- I suppose Objective-C doesn't help AT ALL when facing pretty much "Java" on Android)

It's only somewhat different because Samsung made some element changes while LG stuck with the old TouchWiz looks.

It becomes much worst if the screen is smaller, on larger screens it is passable.

Samsung's UI is in fact horrible and very bloated. Which is why I'm more interested in either these "Google Play Edition" devices or the newer Android One devices.
You can add another iPhone 6 to the "sold" list. 64GB, gold, for my wife. I have a 64GB, space grey, after a Samsung Galaxy S3. I'm absolutely impressed with the iPhone 6. The photos in low light(at restaurant for dinner) are really amazing, and the screen is fantastic really. A nice feature is that if someone calls me on the phone while I'm using the iPad, I can take the call on the iPad, without having to pick up the phone.

It's not a lot of space, but it's still taken up by the soft keys.
Soft keys are great in that they can be easily reconfigured and that there is one less moving part to break, but it still takes up screen space nonetheless.
But I do get what you mean by Apple's implementation where you have to double tap the home button, wait for the screen to slide down, then tap the back button - 3 actions and a slight pause.

The iPhone6 popularity may be skyrocketing but the Note4 is already back beating the iPhone6 in gsmarena's current rankings by daily interest
IOS 8 sucks, even the 8.02 vesion. Al lest on my iPad Air this is. I can't speak for other Appel devices. My tablet became sluggish, freezes a lot, blocks access to my bookmarks out of the blue forcing me to reboot the tab in order to have access again... The layout changes are simply rubbish and the changes in the configuration menu are even worse. The only good thing about it are the changes to the virtual keyboard, more specific the predictive texting wich finally is "predictive".
As I hear other "victims" of the incompetence of Apple regarding this update I'm certain that I'm not the only one facing such issues.
Not to speak about the poor lads who updated their 4S resulting into the same slowly ness as to the former users of the 4 who updated to IOS 7 a while ago... If the hardware doesn't cope then just don't do it!

In android no matter phablets exists but look at the way they navigate and that is so easy.
For an iphone 6+ this is not the case and that is what im trying to explain.
And you have to triple tap the home key then it slides down.
But just think triple tapping ut always and then hitting the back button. Hope you getting me now?
And you can have this feature OOn xposed toolkit.
Where you can allow the screen according to the way you want.
I'm pretty sure the iPhone 6 plus would be outstripping the regular iPhone 6 sales if stock was not so limited. Out of everyone I have spoken to with a new iPhone or looking to get one, only 1 person has said they want the iPhone 6 everyone else is/was after the plus. The funny thing is the majority have ended up purchasing the 6 as they don't want to wait, and the bendgate incident did not help.
ios8 does have it's issues, but these issues are nothing compared to the issues you have when you upgrade to the next version of android. problem will be fixed very soon. Not a problem. Android users are the ones that have the most issues. with it, wh ich is ironic, since they are not even using that platform.
rahul25, 06 Oct 2014Just tell me a simple thing.
Can you navigate through your phone single handedly?
If yes ... moreOn my Galaxy S4 Active - yes, I can. I can even reach the tab number icon at the far top right of Chrome, using my left hand. How, you ask?
Simple, I stretch my thumb everyday with this one weird trick.
No, seriously... I simply tilt the phone towards my palm using my fingers, then my palm rests against the lip of my phone case for more support. My thumb will then easily hit the top right of the screen. However, a 5" screen and the size of my GS4 Active is the absolute limit of how big of a phone that I can tolerate. For iPhone it also helps that the entire screen can slide down if you double tap the home button, wish I had that on my Android (Samsung's implementation in the Note series sucks, it just shrinks the screen).
Gorgenapper, 06 Oct 2014I know that Android fanboys might object to your statement, but as an Android USER (Galaxy S4 ... moreIndeed.
Apple does have it's strong suits, that's a truth some Android fanboys don't like to admit, but unless Apple changes their corporate stance of tech "lock-in" them the typical Android power-user won't ever consider their products.
The only objection to the original comment (the quote within the quote) is the very clichéd "I get forced closes all the time" (in a Z2 with 3GB of RAM mind you), which is usually a pretty good indication of:
a) You got yourself a defective unit and should replace it ASAP.
b) Given the Xperia Z2 has 3GB of RAM, it actually takes quite some effort to be an incompetent user and get FCs with such a regular basis. Kudos for achieving such level.
