goodthings, 27 Sep 2014You are a product of marketing techniques instilling fear in you. My Android device is as safe... moreYour Android device is not as safe as Apple let alone Blackberry. If a director of Google states that Android was designed with easy of use in mind and not security, as has been reported in this forum and also in most related technical publications, and most research on security puts BB at the top of the pact, oh and yes Samsung put out urgent security upgrades in the last 6 months, as reported in this forum, oh and yes their famed KNOX does not work, and what else, oh yes my tech savy clever friends can still crack a Samsung with ease, then perhaps you dont know what you are talking about.
how come nobody mentioned one of the biggest drawbacks - they no longer have BLACK version?!?
that's a showstopper even for moderate iPhone fans, there's only grey washed-out color available, which looks, rather, cheap.
not to mention the iOS esthetics suits 3 year old rather than business oriented grown up people. Android L is generation ahead with UX.
With the heavier memory requirements of iOS 8, 1GB DRAM is deficient and causes more frequent Safari browser reloads on complex pages that consume all your mobile data cap. This is worse than the bend issue but doesn't get any attention.
xperia z3 compact and samsung galaxy alpha will kill this phone period.
adreno 420 spits on powerVR 6450
GPU in apple iphone produces a mere 115 GFLOPS.
Its mainly a GPU designed for low power consumption.
either ways iphone doesn't need a powerful GPU since the stone age OS cannot handle (or utilize ) it.
GFX benchmarks are better in some cases since it has to push less pixels (750p) and no 2k like oppo 7.
In my opinion the disadvantages list should be like this:
•Has unimpressive screen to body ratio (the Nexus 5 fits a 5-inch screen in this size of a body)
•We would take a bigger battery than a thinner phone any day
•No 4K video and video sound is still mono
•Lacks the optical image stabilization of the iPhone 6 Plus
•No enhanced resistance to liquids or dust
•NFC functionality limited to Apple Pay only
•No wireless charging
I think the other things are useless and i bet that nowadays doesn't exist an Android device with all those things
SDKforLumia, 27 Sep 2014Sir, all your arguments 1-8 are invalid because
1. Gionee E 5.5 costs 1/3rd of an iPhone 6 1... moresorry bro...we don't agree with you.
disadvantages are disadvantages.
perhaps apple releases one phone in a year and claims it to be the best...so they better put in everything or they gonna get scrutinized.
SDKforLumia, 27 Sep 2014Can someone please explain to me why I shouldn't buy an Xperia Z3c or Z3 oinstaed of iP 6? I m... moreThere is no reason why you shouldn't buy XPERIA Z3. IPhone 6 is just a waste of money. Z3 has better battery, camera, 3gb ram, micro SD slot.
Good and funny to read review even if i don't plan on buying a new device soon. Also didn't know that mouse beast could move by himself!
SDKforLumia, 27 Sep 2014Can someone please explain to me why I shouldn't buy an Xperia Z3c or Z3 oinstaed of iP 6? I m... moreYou better buy the Z3 than the Iphone6. That is bigger, waterproof, it has a better camera. It has stereo speakers(if you care), it has a much better battery life and so on.
Sd to see that Crappy battery. To bad, such a waist of engineering. Almost apple, almost.
Can someone please explain to me why I shouldn't buy an Xperia Z3c or Z3 oinstaed of iP 6? I mra seriously, fanboyism and negative criticsm apart, iPhone 6 is really a good device but the truth is, Z3c and Z3 are just better( except for 16 gb only versions )
So please i am open for any arguments, but please no harsh ones.
The LONGEST main disadvantage list I've ever seen from a GSMArena review. Lol haha
AnonD-298939, 27 Sep 2014Ok I've never owned an iPhone but I really feel GSMArena was looking for every excuse in the b... moreSir, all your arguments 1-8 are invalid because
1. Gionee E 5.5 costs 1/3rd of an iPhone 6 16gb, and it by no means ever claimed itself a worldwide best seller.
2. Xiaomi Mi 4 64 is almost half the price of iPhone 6 16 gb, so again. SORRY.....
Might be well built or whatever.
But iOS.. Old, outdated and boring. It looks the same as it did in 2007. Really? a non-customizable homescreen to suit your usage and needs gotta go. All those icons on one screen is a cluttering mess. And changing the GUI does not really help does it?
Thank god there is a Jailbreak, without that iPhone wouldn't be that popular
I would like to see this kind of vigorous camera testing applied to other phones as well.
