Most Android flagships dont have better battery than this except for talk time, which is irrelevant to many users, esp to me. Galaxy S4, S5, Xperia Z, Z1, HTC One, One M8, Moto X, X 2014, all Nexus phones, are some examples of phones with inadequate batteries.
High performance? If you care about performance you would clearly want an iPhone 6? Make up your mind.

AnonD-312753, 27 Sep 2014Simple....because there are lots of stupid people :)Perhaps you should try using an iPhone first or check out the quality of the applications you can run on iPhone compared to android's play store. I am an android and iOS user, btw.
I wish people would read first before they post crappy comments, look at the benchmark test results for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6+ compared to major flagship phones. Look at the figures. :D
AnonD-298939, 27 Sep 2014Ok I've never owned an iPhone but I really feel GSMArena was looking for every excuse in the b... moreYeah i saw that too, some of those cons are way out of line of normal operations for reviews here. 32GB model? That would mean 24 models, 2 sizes, 3 colors, 4 storage options, like 18 isnt already too much?
And i expect every review from now to list protruding camera as a disadvantage on every samsung phone. I hate protruding camera so its good its mentioned but must be the same for all.
And why isnt region lock ever mentioned as con for Samsungs, now thats something worth mentioning but not a word about it, but for iPhone they are listing totally insignificant things?
That said, iPhone 6 is terrible no matter what, i hate it like the plague, but reviews MUST BE FAIR.
Can someone name me one Android phone with:
-multiple size internal storage
-4K video with stereo mic
-NFC, FM, IR
-one hand use
-finger print scanner
Doesn't exist doesn't it? Lot of Android phones have advantage over iPhone in some categories but no single phone, when everything is put together, is better than an iPhone. The sales number reflects this.
Best iPhone 6 review, not like those of "Cult of Mac" and other apple-paid reviewers. I was hoping iPhone 6 would pack a Full HD display. iPhone 6 plus is just too big for me. Its an disappointment. Also I would trade a slimmer phone for a bigger battery any day. Currently on iPhone 5. No more iPhone from now. And iOS 8 is full of bugs. I can't download anything now with any 3rd party downloader app. There is no more 3G on/off switch anymore. There are many app crashes. Siri also crashes. Battery life has decreased. Apple has lost its standard. Its starting to show effect ever since Steve Jobs is no more. Just look at iPhone 6, its back side just looks ugly compared to previous iPhones like 5s and 4s. Looking forward to Xperia Z3 with great battery life and good screen.
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 microSD slot
No user-replaceable battery
Curved corners make it more slippery and easier to drop than the iPhone 5S
No 32GB version, users forced to upgrade all the way to 64GB (which is cheaper this year, but a 32GB version should have been even cheaper or even standard)
Protruding camera lens makes the phone wobble if you don't have a case on
Camera is still merely 8MP four years in a row (granted, it's getting better with every new generation)
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
Offers the same display pixel density fourth year in a row
NFC functionality limited to Apple Pay only
No FM radio
No Infrared port
No wireless charging
No stereo speakers
No USB Mass Storage mode, iTunes required for file transfers
Rather pricey without carrier subsidies
How come people still buying this sh*t with this never ending disadvantages list......
[deleted post]You don't know why the iPhone gets bashed?
Go back and have a look at the disadvantages manifesto on page 1!
Now that's a lot of main disadvantages..While the bend issues never gets old, personally I don't think the iPhone 6 is a worth upgrade from the 5s.
[deleted post]Before u say, think how that low screen resolution yr best gadget easily out driven. But yet not all test the I bend win. So is best out dated phone of last year.
It's not about performance... it's about real life usage! Why compare apple to oranges? I own both iOS and Android device, sure, but I'm bored with iOS.
I have 5s and 2 days ago I got 6plus . Guys believe me never ever change iPhone 5s to 6 plus.

Its really unexpected Iphone 6(gx6450) has better frame/sec during GFXbench(OFF SCREEN TEST).
So for Alpha/Z3c fanboy.....your guy should accept the fact reality that Iphone 6 is faster in real life application.
Spec doesnt tell everything.High spec doesnt mean better or good.
Congratulation to whole APPLE enginnering team for good gob.
