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).
AnonD-446028, 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 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.

I don't reckon gsmarena is one of those sites.

Fear, 02 Oct 2015I wonder now ,where are those paper specs junkies who constantly bash Apple for outdated hard...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.
I usually trust gsmarena reviews, but since it was a late review, i went to read reviews all around the web. There's two major differences between what gsmarena says and what the rest of the world says: according to gsmarena, touch id is only among the best, while everyone else believes it's the best period. And camera wise, gsmarena says there is a lot of post processing while everyone else thinks the 6s camera is the one that offers the most natural pictures and colours among 2015 smartphones (as compared with galaxy s6's heavy sharpening and processing)
I wonder now ,where are those paper specs junkies who constantly bash Apple for outdated hardware.How come every year Apple manages to outpreform the top android phones with specs from 2010 ? When will you start to understand that beefed up specs are useless without true optimisation and quality.
Wrt the camera thing? Yeah... Enjoy the limelight with us this year ;) it's ok: http://youtu.be/b_1Bgfl6qvk not like I'ma take a $500k photo anyways lol

Some can't believe people still pay for music lol. Some are professional photographers too remember?

These 2 technologies stem from the same context. But they are not the same. Keeping up? Samsung and others have done it before. They didn't make it mainstream. Lol... Apple. Will, why, good question, 1 they're Apple duh right? Loadsa iSheep brothers and sister in my family bro. Yup I said it. Lol anyways 2. The way they have incorporated the technology is firstly and INTRODUCTION to the tech, and even in its infancy it's already making waves, and it will become a standard iPhone 7 up for max enjoyment of the OS, it is to get the user comfortable with it. Secondly the way apple have incorporated it feels intuitive and quickly becomes a habit, pick up and old iPhone 6 Plus after using it and you notice it, you miss it. Third up... Drumroll Apple speaks the world listens and things change. Proven fact. Don't believe me? It even has droid boys like yourself talking about it. You guys can't stop lol, meanwhile we're enjoying it.
Still the best phone overall out there and the sales numbers are proof of it.
The camera is getting rated very highly elsewhere, on par with the S6 Edge+ and the LG....
