Nicest thing about iPhone's is the way you can backup and restore.
Almost seamless transition from old phone to new.
If Samsung could offer something similar .......
In the age of qhd's a phone with just hd display, bulky design (large bezels) for the screen size, mono speakers , low end hardware, poor battery, limited feature OS and more disadvantages, exorbitant pricing. Fooling ignorant customers .
Where is antutu benchmark gsma??
Agree this ishit is good in terms of gpu with tiny resolution but post antutu scores as well then will know better comparision...
And as usual crapple isheeps are going crazy for lousy specs pathtic...
Guess!! Just have to wait till the s7 shows up ...then we'll see who's the king of performance and so on
mir, 01 Oct 2015Maybe you haven't read the part were the 8 core droids got thrashed by a 2 core iphone. The 8 core wasn't beaten.the single core of those 8 were beaten.
The gpu is a beast though.
Camera isn't the best.
Battery life isnt the best.
Price is very high.
FOR ME its not the phone to buy.
This year not a single flagship is worth it.Every phone has a drawback that is undeniable. Samsung has the best chip in droids but crappy software and battery life and the other droids have the dragon.IPhone is never meant for me.
Lg V10 is probably the best overall smartphone now imo.

Are you serious? So ndroi boy Logic is that when iPhone is superior in speed and performance you don't need that extra power :D
Yeah just like i remember when iPhone 4 came with retina and android boys said no-one doesn't need sharp screen like that.
You can find lot of videos where A9 clearly shows real benefit, who wouldnt want their sevices work even faster and smoother. Also like this review said, this beast is very future proof.
A sincere open letter to GSMA.
Guys if you consider S6 or S6 Edge as the most compititive device please raise your voice for its draw backs also. All the units I ever seen in a store have their screens Burnt-in. No Samsung sales representative could gava a single responsible answer to that.
Samsung even denied replacement to my friend's S6 with burn in screen just after 3 months of usage.
Then I looked up at XDA & found a whole lot of complains about screen burn in & Samsung's ignorance to the case.
Now, if this has been the case with iPhone, I bet all sort of media would have gone mental on Apple but no one bats an eye on Samsung.
I request GSMA to please post a blog & make some pressure on Samsung to recall S6 devices & replace the faulty screens.
DeadPoooool, 02 Oct 2015Why this flagship phone is very very very expensive in my country?! Can u reduce your iphone price?They will reduce the price next year, when the next iPhone will come. That's their strategy
4K video with mono sound? Really?
If this phone is that good then why all the second hand websites are filled with iPhone? They buy it and after that they want to get rid of it after a couple of weeks.
Large sales? Of course, many of the cariers give it for free or in small cotes for the next 2 years. I wonder how many of those 13 Mil bought it without any contract?
Having a closed system, being forced to use iTunes every time you want to put something on your phone (most of us are not using computers anymore, having a smartphone), no free choice to install any app just those from apple store, which are not for free, average camera and the fact that every spoiled kid have one, makes me think that the iPhone users never used an android flagship. Saying that the cpu is the best, comparing this phone with expensive cars, makes me laugh. I say that the iPhone is the bugatti of the phones, but with Ford engine. Get real people. Peace
nono, 02 Oct 2015we have to admit that the prices are insane. how can I pay 1000 euro for a phone while I can b... moreI didn't buy iPhone for a long time for that exact reason. I just didn't think it was worth the price. In time though, I learned that iPhones retain their value so well that you can buy one and easily resell it to buy a new one a few years later. You can also keep it for several years, consider the newest iOS can be loaded onto the iPhone 4s, a phone that was introduced in 2011.
In terms of cost, it's the initial purchase of your first iPhone that really hurts your wallet.
Its a beast in performance but in picture quality lacks behind and even the video quality than other phones and battery has only improved slightly from the previous gen. Talk time is pretty less compared to android phones. 3D touch is good but for me doesn't make much difference and pretty much its useless. The base model is also useless at least 32gb was expected if apple is going to put 4K videos and the new feature live photos. Durability its improved but not industry leading.
Why this flagship phone is very very very expensive in my country?! Can u reduce your iphone price?
we have to admit that the prices are insane. how can I pay 1000 euro for a phone while I can buy a very good laptop(i7 processor) for 600 euro? :)
1000 euro for a phone is alot of money anywhere in the world.there are people who are working 2-3 months for these money :)
These companies want to make 300-400% profit.
the size is the best thing from all. 4.7 inch is the best size. I am not an Apple fan, I have Samsung.
we need special pockets to keep them if we are not ladies to keep them in purse :)
I am curios to see the new Samsung S6 mini which yet did not appear....I hope it won't have more than 4.7''
Anonymous, 02 Oct 2015Good job APPLE,
[A9-Power VR-GT 7600] gpu is a "real beast" performance .Cant imagine wha... moreThis is the heights of hypocrisy - When Android chipset were better in benchmarks, ifans kept on saying that benchmarks do not matter. Now that apple chipset is far better, they just brag about it. I do accept that A7/A8/A9 are real beasts in terms of performance compared to their android counterparts.
Question to ifanboys - Isn't apple just playing the numbers game, without any tangible benefit to the end users? The A7 chip released two years back IS still a BEAST for the 750p resolution in iphone6s, isn't it? Split-screen multitasking is not going to be available in iphone6s anyways, to make use of that additional CPU/GPU power. IOS is also not adding any other key features which require that much additional power.
What tangible better performance ifanboys are getting in realtime (few nanoseconds of faster screen loading, may be) other than bragging rights that A9 is a benchmarks champion compared to Android counterparts? If iphone 6s were to use 2K or 4K display, the performance levels of A9 would have made a difference to the so-called user-experience ifans keep talking about. With iphone6s still having 750p screen, don't be hypocrites and accept the truth - Apple is playing just a numbers game and there is no realtime benefits with A9 compared to A7 for a phone with 750p display.
PS: I am not a Android fanboy, rather an Android fan.
I don't understand why 3D touch I was able to tap and hold on my 7 year old moti rokr to enter into menu. Why need a specialized hardware when you can press for little longer to get same action
