And while the cores might be advanced Apple purposefully holds them back drastically.
Limiting core speed due to mediocre battery and and limiting a crashing OS that get's increasingly heavier and a 64BIT chip to 1GB of ram is cruel punishment.
Can it run ok that way? Sure.....But if they cared even a little more about you and true performance rather than every single last penny of profit they can make off of you then they would fix the bugs, refine the coding and stop the crashes and lags, and up the ram to support 64BIT. Or at least 2GB. Than and giving you a 2000nah or higher battery and increasing the clock rate to 1.8-2Ghz.
If they would just do that the Iphone for once would actually fly. It would come close to having this illogical lead you all like to pretend they have. It would outperform many Androids.
Most of all it would almost actually be worth it's price tag.....
But in the end....This is IOS. This is iPhone. This is Apple. They are still the world leaders in app crashes. The bugs are every where. They have continually made the updates much heavier without adding much to show for it adding more freezes and lags...That probably has to do with lazy coding as well though. And unsupported 64BIT chip on low ram. Which is why the iphone 5 was actually more stable than the 5s.
Add to all that still an over priced set of outdated hardware "sans the SoC...though it is for being held back" and lack of current software of the this decade.

That's the result of hardware and software created for each other.

User Experience, A Perfect Experience of Stutter, Lag and Freeze starting form S3, to S5 and Note 2 to Note 3. Sure Samsung will bring the same pleasant experience in Note 4 as well for the sake of consistency
My i6 16 gb gold version is getting problem. When i missed to receive a call the skin does not move anydide n i need to turn off n on. It becomes hot while listening music n call a long time. I need to reboot it if i did not received a call. Plz give me suggestion
X, 28 Sep 2014Lol! Interesting that those "disadvantages" are not mentioned for other phones.
-&q... moreYes, my point exactly. It's a bit ridiculous.
Unfortunately, we'll need to go elsewhere for a better iPhone 6 review.
the internal hardware's performance is good.. agreed.. but whats the use of a phone with smooth ui if it does not offer better customizations and freedom unlike android or even windows phone 8.1 these days!!
The iPhone 6 seems like a good buy.
I'd steer clear of the iPhone 6 Plus for a while though.
Mind you, you'd probably end up fine with either - but it's good to be sure.
iPhone 6.. A phone whose key features list is shorter than the main disadvantages one! way to go gsmarena!

You just make my day
Best mobile ever. The more android fanboys try to deny and degrade, the more it shines.
the most suspect benchmarks are from BrowserMark 2.1, where Apple values are more than double than their closest competitors.
BrowserMark 2.1 already retired all the values for iOS tests, because of that:
"We have temporarily removed iOS device results while we investigate a Basemark X defect which negatively impacts iOS results"

Do you know why i dn use iphone Any more? Only reason is freedom. I do agree that iphone excells other phone in many ways. But i dn habe time for itunes. Imagine u r a service holder. Do u have time to convert your download mkv movies or music videos through itunes? Hell no. We like on the go. Drag and drop service. My s5 worse than iphone i admit ok? But it saves my time. I drag and drop mp3, pdf, movies without any craptunes. Fingerprint sensor? Water res? snapdragon 801? Ohh come on, give me a break. LIke i care. I use mobile to listening to music when i go to office by lrt, browse net and facebook, watch movies or music videos on the go. Like all the time u can not open laptop, saved in pendrive and u r on the go? Np. usb otg will.save the day. Nowdays u will even find pen drive with otg function. Ever tried anyshare? Wow this music video is nice. Or this app is nice. Can u share? Yes open ur anyshare. I see all iphone user use a powerbank. No matter what i do, my s5 can go on till i come back to home. I can use my s5 like my laptop. Browse website. Download music. Download movies. Download pdf file. Edit powerpoint(this part can do with iphone too). My point is, iphone is better than my s5 in every department. Bit it does not give me freedom. When it will, i promise u i will use iphone again. I think many android user will change side that time. Until than, android will try to rule the world
Apple like other high end mobile manufactures such as Samsung, LG, Sony even the Chinese manufactures are in a specs race, which does not mean a productivity or efficiency race. Marketing is the key to the consumer. Without the support of carriers subsidising prices through deal packages, none of their devices would enter the market. They are too expensive for what they deliver with marketing hype over substance. If you want to play games, you can do so for half the price easily, and also take decent photos. Next is connectivity, signal, reception, clarity, security and privacy. In years to come carriers risk being sued for selling mobile devices that now pose security risks and are being used to collect personal information. Class actions here we come. Apple. WP, and Android in particular are guilty of this.
