Everyone knows the good like CPU GPU, slomo and so on, but let me tell you things that would really suck. First is the lack of OIS! Why Apple made it so that in order to get a steadier shot while filming in 4K someone needs to purchase the 6s+ is beyond me. Greed, maybe? Second would be the low res LCD display. However you look at it, it will never be near the level of the 2K Super Amoled display on every Galaxy flagship. And it will definitely never be good enough for virtual reality. Third is, no fast charging. Though every iPhone lover may have gotten used to the long period of wall hugging time, it would sure suck when you definitely need a quick charge.
phones with aluminium can't have wireless charging... unless new technology allows it
rheggiey, 02 Oct 2015Did you own both of those? I'm using both note4 and 6s, I tell you 6s is far ahead of note4. ... morei have the ip6 and my gf just had her 6s , both our phones burn in minutes not even playing games or something . just as i thought il pass on this version. and the 3d touch is freakin crazy it doesnt respond most of the time. for a new version like this ?
Welcome to 2012 year to iPhone6S...
The miserable disadvantages stuff comes from Apple's :-
1) No microSD slot
2)Pricey memory upgrades, 32GB version should be standard for such an expensive phone
3)Protruding camera lens makes the phone wobble
4)Lacks the optical image stabilization of the iPhone 6s Plus
5)NFC functionality limited to Apple Pay
6)No wireless charging, an infrared port, or FM radio
7)No enhanced resistance to liquids or dust
8)No user-replaceable for the small capacity battery

As someone who worked at retailers, apple is the only company for which they never give us gifts or have any sort of draws or retailer specific trainings to get discounts, while everyone else (samsung, hp, amd, etc) bribes us as much as possible to sell their products
That battery runtime out of that battery capacity? Certainly something android should shave (several) slices off of. Also, nice performance from "only" a dualcore. Now if it wasn't for the price, the platform lock-in and the lack of SD slot, I might have even considered it.

Samsung was the I caught paying for positive comments, threatening bloggers, and paying off officials. Not to mention cheating on benchmarks.
I agree,iPhone is very nice! I had an iPhone 5 before. But the battery was so shitty that changed, ans it looks like everyone forgets about it. If you have the kind of phone

TSMC produces the rest. Apple's architecture design is its own, licensed from ARM (of which it is a co-founder). And its NAND controllers for storage are custom designed, implementing PCIe rather than the usual eMMC or UFS controllers (see Anandtech's preliminary findings).

... moreI own a Note 5 and an iPhone 6+ (not 6S+) and if I had to chose, I'd probably give up the Note.
The iPhone is better designed and I like using it a bit better. The Note 5 has a better camera (mostly noticeable in low light), but the iPhone is damned good too. I am getting the 6S+ in about a month :)
"... Retina flash the entire screen will light up in white and provide some extra light as long as you keep close to it. It's something we've seen other manufactufrers do for a few years now, but Apple went a step further...."
Apple have this function in the iMac since 2003 or 2000 for the iSight camera built-in the computer. The monitor will flash white while taking a picture.

In terms of gaming: (i manage to play it from 6s and note4)
Note4 - sometimes rattles the sound and lag are distinguishable. The phone quickly felt hot on hands.
6s - no lag so far, the sound are good and no rattles. You will feel the device warming on hands when it play long but not as quick from note4.
Messaging on 6s is slightly better. Im using 6s for my default messaging and calling because i found it much easy and good typing.
Im not fan of amoled coz it turns me to oversaturated and it hurts my eye for a long time view. I prefer natural colors of the screen. So i set the note4 for normal/natural screen. But i think 6s produce better color contrast and more realistic.

Fear, 02 Oct 2015I wonder now ,where are those paper specs junkies who constantly bash Apple for outdated hard... moreBecause they don't have deeper understanding behind those specs. They just look at the raw numbers like cpu ghz speed, number of cores, screen resolution etc.
Apple has always been ahead hardware-wise, and it's not just because of optimization and efficiency. They hands down overpower everything else especially in the CPU department. They may only have 2 cores, but they are super-cores. A single A9 core easily outperforms 8 Cortex A-53 cores. Android fanboys keep saying more cores is better for multithreading bla blah, but what they fail or still ignore to understand is that over 90% of apps are single threaded.
