The benchmark scores are so small they will get outdated once the new Cortex-A57 phones kick in, Note 4 would be one of those Cortex-A57 phones.
As far as i know, Apple used to give what customer need instead of customer want, nowadays there are so many customer demanding high specs on iphone. Apple should quickly respond it, otherwise Tim Cook and Apple will sink like blackberry

Nxx, 30 Sep 2014Dude sorry as an engineer i only check specification...apple is offering the cheapest chipset ... moreI wont agree Apple's chipset is bad. Yeah, they could still provide a better one but according to benchmarks, the single core performance of Apple is equal to two of Qualcomm's best. I think its mainly due to the 64-bit architecture vs 32-bit.
Anonymous, 30 Sep 2014But why should you when you get something truly cutting edge cheaper? Or even something else ... moreI never said / forced you to buy Apple. I just said its a great phone. I prefer Android (AOSP).
Nxx, 30 Sep 2014Feel really Pity for those who buy this phone with features same like a phone worth 100 USD fo... moreYup. Except Apple finally moved up from that 1400mah battery.
Though it was too small an increase to cancel out all the other increases.
They literally just made it big enough to make the screen bigger. As minimal change as possible so they could keep the profits.
And while the chip is a strong architecture the clock speed and ram severely limit it.
And every time you mention specs all apple users just go on a whining rant that specs dont mean anything and it's ok because IOS is optimized.....
Um....The top Android OEMS optimize their os too...better in fact.....So that's not the point..The point is on top of better optimizing they use stronger and better hardware.....And cost less.
Ivan Croatia, 30 Sep 2014So, if you read review carefully you see that iPhone is no1 in benchmarks, far ahead z3, alpha... moreDude sorry as an engineer i only check specification...apple is offering the cheapest chipset 1.4 GHZ is shame real shame for anyone to offer...Sorry for this company on the way they fool customers and sell their products at 10 times more price they worth...I had a Iphone5S recently UPGRADED to Z1Compact and i realized....I was using a apple shit for more than a year :-(
Feel really Pity for those who buy this phone with features same like a phone worth 100 USD for this hefty price
Camera - 8 MP ( Apple must feel ashamed )
Processor - 1.4 GhZ ( Probably offered in cheapest phones today )
Battery Life - 1400 MAH --- even a Nokia Asha has a better battery
Overall much much degraded phone when you compare to master piece like - HTC-M8, Samsung Alpha & Sony Z3 Compact...
Apple a piece of advice wake up before its too late---You cant fool customers with these low low specs only on basis of build quality....Quite cheap worth not more that 400 USD
Ivan Croatia, 30 Sep 2014So, if you read review carefully you see that iPhone is no1 in benchmarks, far ahead z3, alpha... moreAccept that benchmarks is the only place where it comes near the top.
Camera, display, battery, design, build, function, and just about everything is way better.
And technically even chip it does not beat out all. And it's only mostly due to a decent GPU.
The A8's actual power is not great because Apple holds it back drastically by low clock speed and limited ram to supply it.
So no. Never was and never will be best all around.
S5, Z2, Z1c, Z3, Z3c, M7, M8, Note 3, Note 4, G2, G3, and such are overall much better all arounders.
namealreadytaken, 30 Sep 2014As much as I hate Apple's business strategy, Apple is very far from becoming blackberry. Its s... moreBut why should you when you get something truly cutting edge cheaper?
Or even something else that's still overall way better drastically cheaper.
And on top of being better in software and hardware they are more original, less restricted, and not shameless illegal pieces of cr@ap.
So, if you read review carefully you see that iPhone is no1 in benchmarks, far ahead z3, alpha and GS5. Then you see that it has superb camera, nevermind it is "only" 8 MP. Then you see first class build quality and premium materials. You hear that Retina HD is simply great screen as usual, Apple is clever enough not to go for stupid QHD, and Full HD is reserved for Plus. And finnaly battery which is thin because of design, but still slightly better than Galaxy Alpha and on par with G3. iPhone is still best allrounder on the market
Kkiran, 30 Sep 2014I haven't seen such a long list of negatives in any phone I guess.. Lol.. Well apple is worst ... moreAs much as I hate Apple's business strategy, Apple is very far from becoming blackberry. Its still a great phone if you can live with its limitations and high price.
I haven't seen such a long list of negatives in any phone I guess.. Lol.. Well apple is worst than any android smartphone I have used in the past couple of years.. I have an ipad, and after the last update its become a blackberry.. It lags and hangs and applications crash and dropbox is impossible to use coz if I zoom in on an image it just gets stuck there, no response, it just hangs there, even after I close and reopen the application it doesn't help.. I have to remove it from the multitasking (or should I call it that) tray and only then it starts working again and the same happens on zooming.. And this happened in front of my client.. I was so embarrassed and seriously thank that I had a giant android phone and I could go ahead with the meeting and show the images on that..
Apple is becoming blackberry slowly.. The premium famous smartphone gone horribly wrong..

Meaning while in movie mode the colors are very accurate.
So Amoled is only with blacks and massive contrast, overall less power consuming, evenly lit without random bright spots, less reflective, better in direct sunlight, and can give a level of saturation that people in the real world like and LCD cannot produce.
Plus in Movie mode it has better white balance, very accurate colors, retains black and contrast, on even lighting....That's way more natural than.....
Accurate colors, fake blacks, fake whites, lacking contrast, more reflection, less even lighting and random bright spots, and so on.....
You have no facts....Just apple love.
[deleted post]Enjoy waiting for whatever Android "next best thing" to arrive, I'll be enjoing using my iPhone 6, 64 GB, space gray, NOW!
Jovan, 29 Sep 2014 I sympathize on your bad experience with the S3, but you can't believe that it would be the s... more"The best display" shows the most off, oversaturated colours. Take a look at phone arena display comparison. I for one don't want the Note 4. If I was looking for a phablet I would have bought the iPhone 6 Plus not the iPhone 6. The bendgate is a farce, with enough force I can bend my iPad 4 too, I'm sure. The crook from the bending video still didn't explain how come when he was bending the i6+, the phone shows the time 2:26, and after is bent the phone shows the time 1:58. You need to apply an unnatural amount of force to bend the i6+, but the gap on the Note 4 is real, you don't need to do anything to get it;).
Anonymous, 30 Sep 2014Can't read small text on S3. Lol. That's a cute touch to your little fairy tale. So basically... moreYea, a 2 seconds lag is a lot of fun! Sometimes I think the phone didn't register my press on the power button to wake it up, so after 2 seconds I press again, just as the screen lights up, and then switches off following the second press. Cool, huh?
