When the app is simply not there to take advantage of in the first place? Also, I don't think you have seen the 6s vs s6 in multitasking. But meh unto each his own :) thanks for the comment contribution.

The dude I was replying to literally said he used a cheap Chinese phone, I used a little English trick called satire in my reply, which was in context. Not a show of superiority. But hey you felt like whining I get it. That's what droid boys do. Ciao

AnonD-362866, 02 Oct 2015If your gonna reply do so in context, he said that he used a cheap Chinese phone... I am replying in context. The iPhone crowd have some financial 'holier than thou' attitude despite their phones costing around the same in the flagship market and the fact that the materials and manufacturing cost is around the same as a 'cheap' android. And let's be honest most smartphones are really Chinese smartphones despite who or where the OEM comes from. I don't see an Apple assembly plant in the US. I don't get why people are happy with their iPhones not losing value through depreciation either. OK it makes for great resale value but in the Android world the massive depreciation is usually due to A) manufacturing costs becoming cheaper B) advancements in technology making previous generations redundant and C) competition. It just means that even waiting around for it to go down in price is usually in vain and you can't use another iOS device because no other OEM else makes them. All you're doing is feeding Apple more money and are more than happy to do it. Do what you want just don't financially stereotype people because they don't have an iPhone. I'd like to not be a hypocrite and not do the same (albeit in reverse) but I've yet to see evidence that I'm wrong.
I'm not an apple fan but i think iPhone 6S has a very nice rear camera

What are you going to do with all these highly optimised cores and this very nice GPU? Play your games at 720p at 60Hz (which is pretty easy to achieve)? Upload your photos to Instagram? The problem is, yes, you have lovely specs for an Apple device but the OS is limited. iOS is less of a computing experience. It feels like a more advanced version of an old PDA OS whereas Android has more of a mini PC OS feel to it. Some people like it, some don't.
And for those who thinks 4 / 8 CPU-cores isn't needed on a smartphone, you should read this and understand that the 'big.LITTLE' CPU architect that is used in the Galaxy S6 series and the Note 5 isn't about maximum performance. Read this to understand that there are tons of benefits to have a 4 or 8 core CPUs.
And this was written at the end there: Clearly Android apps are able to take advantage of multi-core processors and big.LITTLE allows the scheduler to pick the best core combination for the current workload. If you still hear people saying things like 'but a smartphone doesn't need 8 cores' then just throw your hands-up in despair, as it means they don't understand Heterogeneous Multi-Processing and they don't understand that big.LITTLE is about power efficiency and not overall performance.
And to add something to that aswell, then i can say that if you really want to have a serious multitasking / multiwindow capabilities on your smartphone or tablet, you can't use a CPU with just 2 cores. There will be alot of limitations for the multitasking with just 2 CPU-cores.
So please enjoy your dual-core CPU on your iPhones with alot of limitations while we with 4 and 8 CPU-cores can enjoy whatever app without worrying about any limitations.
AnonD-362866, 02 Oct 2015how does touch and hold measure the amount of pressure in a TAP? genius? geez you guys should ... more3d touch calls more or less context menu, on android, inside apps you can do same.. trough its not in launcher ! its only simplified version but it`s also updated, like 3d touch can do more then touch & hold but it`s doing mostly same in some context... while u talk like a "WISE" be careful that fool didn`t beat u

Where's the freedom and liberty in that? I'm not having a go at the iPhone it's just not what some people, like myself, want from a phone. I don't like Apple telling what I can do with my processing power. You have the best cores on the market and nothing to really utilise them with. At least on Android you can use emulators and play whatever damn files you choose.
Neutral user, 02 Oct 2015My question for you is if there is any point in having QHD resolution since the human eye does... moreYou are forgetting one important thing. There is a difference from seeing pixels to seeing things sharper and clearer.
Yes, when the PPI gets over 300, then you normally can't see the pixels while holding the smartphone at a normal distance. But the thing that you and many others are forgetting is that even though it get's harder to see the pixels the higher the PPI gets, it wont stop the displays from getting sharper and clearer the higher the PPI gets.
Infact, you have to go up to around 900 PPI before the sharpness starts to fade off. You should read this: http://www.cultofmac.com/173702/why-retina-isnt-enough-feature/
I have a Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ and the Galaxy Note 4. Both of the screens on my phones here makes the iPhone 6S Plus screen to look like a joke. It's a pretty noticeable difference in the sharpness and overall quality on the S6 edge+ and Note 4 screen to the iPhone 6S Plus screen.
Dev, 02 Oct 2015the cost of iphone 6s plus is $230 , it include everything, they r selling it @ $750 . count t... morewow, that's a lot of profit then. i can't with Apple right now, they know they already established themselves in smartphone industry since the success of iPhone 4, so after that, they only give their bare minimum specs (much less innovation) for their iPhones and selling it with more expensive price...
seriously, you guys dont know about iphones. its simple, fast, and future proof. 6s is the fastest and the best phone ever. samsung, sony, lg all lag even with 4gbs of ram. Ios works perfect even with 1gb ram. Lol then why they should put 4 core processors when their 2 core processor is smoking 8 cores in benchmarks. get a life andriod losers. appreciate what they have achieved and use iphone then comment ;)
I am using Note 4 for everyday use (mainly business) and iPhone 4S as my "weekend" phone... Now I will put away my 4S (would never sell it) and buy iPhone 6 64 GB.
For me, 6S really isn't worth it, only thing I will be missing is Al series 7000 housing... But one fine case will compensate that...
