Iridium, 28 Sep 2014LOL. Cool story but even a 3.5 year old S2 can already pump 550 MB/s through its RAM. Curren... moreSorry but you missed the point. I've just given an example of what you could theoretically achieve with the memory speed of the iPhone. It doesnt mean that it happens. Of course you don't get the images for the screen from the Flash(you wouldn't need the GPU then). I just gave an example to make it easier to understand the differences between the devices. Still the main point is, the iPhone Flash memory is twice as fast as the memory on any Android device(due to double size bus) and that shows in the benchmarks.
I noticed this too - and I think it is that Apple must be rendering at 720p or 750p and upscaling, so the 6 plus can match the 6 at benchmarks. Of course, this is pretty huge if it were true; it would completely negate the benefits of the 1080p screen for anything that uses rendering! Can someone look into this further?
AnonD-312753, 28 Sep 2014According to these specs this is a mid range phone not a high end phone. The only thing that i... moreThis is high end phone, it you was technical enough to understand Apple doesn't require quad core and high ram apples dual core and 1gb ram and still beats all high end android devices . Smh
AnonD-298939, 27 Sep 2014Ok I've never owned an iPhone but I really feel GSMArena was looking for every excuse in the b... moreFace Palm!
You have the Guts to argue with GSM Arena's review .
Please dont ever compare it to Gionee or other phone with half the prize or lower prize range. GSM arena talking about 1000 USD phone and when we say that. Consumer should atleast get premium and unique or should atleast put a bomb on its icrap to show this thing is unique wherein Apple Fails.
Sorry apple puts unique feature the ibanana thing.
The automatic transforming iwatch.
I guess all the hate makes android fans feel better stick with android don't hate apple. Such followers of android make fun Apple but Apple doesn't make fun back.
GFX Bench score iPhone 6+ 1080p resolution is better than iPhone 6 750p resolution, same GPU?!?!?
The first phone in GSMArena which has more Disadvantages that advantages.
AnonD-312753, 28 Sep 2014According to these specs this is a mid range phone not a high end phone. The only thing that i... moreYeah. All these millions of people who bought it must be sooo much stupider than you.
Just the way you put a sentence together shows that you must be at least a genius plus.
harlekkin, 28 Sep 2014Please give us your definition of "high-end". galaxy s5, xperia z3, lg g3, htc one m8
Why is the protruding camera an issue? The Nexus 5 has one and no mention of it as a con in your review. I have both the N5 and iPhone 6...the camera protrusion issue is ridiculous.
According to these specs this is a mid range phone not a high end phone. The only thing that is high end is the $PRICE$.
All my life I used PC's and mobile phones from brands like Nokia, Motorola and Sony, what's all the fuss with this company is this a Chinese manufacturer of phones ? why they still have only 1 GB of RAM and low resolution screens ? only dual-core and no multitasking ? is this a joke ? or just a Nokia 3310 competitor ?
X, 27 Sep 2014Are you sure? Apple uses the fastest Flash memory on the market(900MB/s), from Samsung neverth... moreTheres no Samsung flash memory on iphone 6 or 6+, it was leaked looooong ago, Toshiba is now the main provider but not the only one, Samsung is of course out of the picture and the number of Samsung components in iphones is getting closer to the goal, which is zero.
X, 27 Sep 2014Are you sure? Apple uses the fastest Flash memory on the market(900MB/s), from Samsung neverth... moreLOL. Cool story but even a 3.5 year old S2 can already pump 550 MB/s through its RAM. Current top Android phones (especially the N4, which is powerful enough to drive 4k displays) many times that amount. Silly assumptions with your GPU 2x theory are hilarious though.
X, 27 Sep 2014Are you sure? Apple uses the fastest Flash memory on the market(900MB/s), from Samsung neverth... moreUm. So much nonsense it's hard to pick a starting point, but here's the first hint.
The Note 4 has 3 GB quad channel (let that sink in for a while...) RAM. Your quoted 450 MB/s max is way off.
harlekkin, 28 Sep 2014When did Apple "fans" EVER mock Android for specs? Never. iPhone has always had lowe... moreUser experience?
Apple users never experience the ease of b/t transfer. Apple users never experience usb otg. Apple users never experience drag and drop files without itunes. And the list goes on and on.
Apple users only started to experience nfc while android already have it for years. And they only started to experience a phone with more than 4 inch screen. Pity..
User experience? Haha.. You really made my day.
No matter the competition, if you put it up against ios for me loses (but i don't want either to disappear so as to keep the prices in check). I have both devices and i notice that i am using apple more often. There are a lot of factors you can consider but at the end of the day it is how you use the device for productivity or entertainment not by the amount of customizations you can do (i don't spend my day only doing customizations since the screen always sit behind an app say facebook or a game anyways). And the apps alone speaks for themselves. Between my 2 devices, i always get frustrated when the app i'm currently into in ios is not available in android. I never felt it the other way around. I was ready to buy the flagship android vs iphone 6 but before doing so, i had to do a quick check of the apps i will be getting. You guessed it, it was a deal breaker for me for android and i ended up with iphone 6. I can buy both but i know i will be using the apple again more than the android one. Though i really like the z3 and then the note 4 (which i can both easily buy along with the iphone 6). When it comes to specs, the impression for me is that it takes android a deal amount of specs just to make it run smooth like ios using less specs.
