Honest Realist, 16 Oct 2015Well you are 40 with kids, so I get it, and where your coming from, whereas I am a 28 year old... moreWell said- but hell yeah I love to burn cash on my hobby car too - an EVO 6. If you are familiar then you know that it is a "little bit" more expensive than a stupid smartphone. I just wrote it for you to see that I did not pull the trigger on the Chinese phone because I got financial obligations. Lol - no - thank the Lord. It is just I really believe (and see) that an iphone is 3x the money and half the benefit - for me- yeah. And more money for less is never a good business now, is it? Take care pal.
Reading the comment section of this review is really entertaining lol Iphone users protect Apple, and Android fans come here just to talk smack haha.
I have owned probably a total of 25-30 devices this year alone. Apple, Samsung, LG, Sony, etc..
To Apple fans: Iphone's are not perfect.. they have their flaws as well. But Apple does such a great job at optimizing their software to better fit the hardware that it's hard to beat in everyday performance.
To Android fans: Android phone's have a lot more goodies than Apple devices but sometimes it doesn't matter because most of them are gimmicky. Also you can not judge Iphone's if you've never had one lol and no your friend letting you borrow one for a couple minutes does not count! Once you've used an Iphone as your daily driver for at least a complete week you cannot judge it or put it down.
Conclusion: Everybody should choose the phone that better fits their needs.. Don't choose a phone just 'cause it's packed with so many features.. unless you plan to use them all. If you want something that works well, has a great camera, and probably the best App Store to date then go with the newest Iphone.. If you care about customization, and NEED wireless charging, fast charging, and just prefer Android's openness then go with a highend Android like a Galaxy S6, Note 5 or LG G4..

It's the future man.. sure not everyone has 4K TV's now.. but that's where it's all going. It's the new standard. I myself wanted to get the Iphone 6 but decided to wait until the 6S was unveiled because i knew it would have 4K recording. It was worth the wait! Next i will sell my 1080p TV and get a good 4K one.. You can stay in the past if you want lol the rest of us are going to move on with or without you.

Not everything is made for everyone. So by all means bro, use what ever you like, buy what suits YOUR needs.
Honest Realist, 02 Oct 2015Previous reply didnt get posted for some reason. So I'll just say: "stick to your cheap stuff" :)You call it cheap - I call it reasonably priced and the iphone is a overpriced phone for me. Compared to its (lack of) specs and capabilities.
Honest Realist, 02 Oct 201513m to be precise, and thats in three days bro. Also, hahahahaha No. your wrong. It will never... moreWell Sir, you have referring to android users as users who always needs new "sh!t" - well Im a 40 years old photographer - and I would not call myself geek or some youth who replaces his phone for the newet gadget. I buy phones according to their usability and a stock android is never "messed" up as you say - its rather clean. This is why im not using Samsung with all their bloatware. I recently bought myself an Allview X2 Xtreme for the sake of its camera. It is 24 Mbpixel and it has a fantastic dynamic range- it has 6 inependent lens elements and its optically stabilized. I have compared its pictures to my work camera a Canon 6D - with "L" series lenses of course and I need to say that the smartphone is almost there - I mean really really close. On the other hand the iphone's picture quality is still ridiculous - I know for my friend has a GSM shop so I could lend a 6s for a weekend - no way I would use it. Every single picture I make with a lesser quality camera is a waste of my lifetime memories.. Just think about it. Kids get grown up so quick- so it does matter to me what quality of picture can I treasure. Kind regards.
Pls Apple... make the battery capacity much more bigger.. at least Li-Po 2500 mAh for iphone 6s and Li-Po 3000 mAh. Please listen to what your customer complaining about..
Honest Realist, 02 Oct 2015Yeah based on what your using, you clearly don't know anything lol I have used nexus 5 for 1 year. I was using Samsung note 4 for around 5 months, and broken as it came out from pocket when i was driving motor bike. Yes, i never used iphone for myself; but my wife is using it for more than 2 years, so i know that how iphone works. And i have macbook air since last 3 years. I am using nokia 808 for its fantastic camera, call, whatsapp and sms. I use blackberry, as i am fan of physical keyboard, i like styling of passport and i use almost web in the browser rather than apps. Thanks for that LOL.

To be clear, IÂ’m talking about the process of using a smartphone camera for photography - not the pics, pix, snaps, shots or whatever it is smartphone togs, shooters or iphoneograperhers call photographs captured with a mobile phone camera.
obviously there has to be something good about using a smartphone for a camera (besides the fact that you always have it with you , processing and sharing images to your various social media networks is infinitely more streamlined).
For anybody interested, it's a nice article :
(it's not only about Iphone. any other brand is the same).

Because its always with you? I bought expensive DSLR years ago and took like 10 000 photos, i shot everything, i started to loose interest because it was so big so when i wanted to shoot something i took it with me, but usually when i had great situations to shoot something the DSLR was at home.
Now i have great camera in my pocket which is always ready to shoot, the quality isnt as good as my DSLR but the quality getting better and Better and like i said best part, its always with me and best photos are actually the ones you can take ;)
You really should check out this link to understand how far these devices have gone http://austinmann.com/trek/iphone-6s-camera-review-switzerland

How can you compare the smartphone lens with a camera lens? Without words...
over 90% from the phone users are not using 50% from the phone power. It's just trendy to have a "new" phone and nothing more. It's a disease ...I guess :)
The people are debating, they are fighting "my Android is better, no my IOS is better" . Hehe.
My question remains: what apps (why do you need "more power?you use to justify buying the "new" smartphones?
I see the iphone as a poweeful phone whose power is untapped by 95% of its users, i see sony as the only Android phone with innovation and a near perfect ui, and finally the Microsoft as the only os that's really pushing smart devices beyond its limit with continuum, hololens, cortana, universal apps, etc. How can someone call 3d sensor innovation plus the iphone and the g6edge is just too pricey for rose gold and curved screen to justify a price tag of over 1000 euro, its just doesn't make common sense.

Well im going to buy 6s in few hours and biggest reason is great camera and video cam. I'm photographer and better shooter i have the better pics i can take. And don't talk about DSLR, i already have great professional camera but i hardly use it anymore, found the photograph passion again with my 5s two years ago and now i simply want better shooter and 6s going to get my photography to next level. Its great how far the tech has gone with phones.
Also about video, it's insane what you can do with phones these days, check this http://youtu.be/OtMikX6J-78

This problem has two aspects. The first is a physical one, the other affects your SOUL.
It IS very ANNOYING to deal with those fucking cables. It IS a NIGHTMARE!
But more importantly: with wireless charging you can FREE YOURSELF.
You can GET RID of the notion of "CHARGING". It becomes a problem of the PAST. You just put your phone down (at your workplace, at home, in the car) as you would do it anyway, you are not dealing with the charging aspect! As you transform your thinking, you get rid of SLAVERY. It's NOT about LOOKING COOL. It's about THE PEACE OF MIND! It's about FREEDOM!
My other comment under this one HELPS you to better immerse yourself in the topic.
NOW you have strong RESISTANCE in yourself. You have the feelings of rivalry. That's why you want to get over the subject negligently.
LET GO OF THESE FEELINGS. Don't think about different brands. Just immerse yourself in the idea of wireless ch., the SIGNIFICANCE of it, and what EMOTIONAL BENEFITS could it offer to you. Go through those mental practices!
But beware! Once you become really AWARE of this thing, and REALIZE its sheer AWESOMNESS, you will want to THROW OUT the piece of crap Iphone (or any other droids that don't have this feature)!
You don't have to admit your findings here! Be extremely HONEST with yourself, and really let go of your resistance. It's just for YOUR OWN GOOD!
Good luck in upgrading and refining your thinking!
Dodo, 07 Oct 2015I am not too thrilled with wireless charging, at least based on my Samsung experience. It's st... moreHey!
I'm very sorry to hear, that you aren't IN LOVE with the Sammy wireless experience!
I'll give you a very detailed description to help you:
Two things, and your life will CHANGE!!!
1st: you have to do two mental excercises.
-CONCENTRATE on the following idea: it's not just a plate, that you have to plug in. Your phone is the thing that you should have to plug IN AND OUT every day, if you didn't have this MARVELLOUS w.less charging pad. In two years that would mean 1460 occasions!!! You only have to plug in your pad only ONCE, and after that, u can FORGET ABOUT IT.
-DON'T THINK about it as a pad, where you charge your phone. THINK ABOUT IT AS a flat surface, where you just put your phone down before sleep. Literally do this excercise numerous times. Put the term "charging" out of your head, and think: "I put my phone down beside my bed on the commode." In the morning, when you grab it, don't check the batt. stat with some anxiety in your heart. Don't even think about charging (the green led should be lighting anyway). JUST GRAB IT!
These are the mental practices, you have to work with. It's crucial to go through these steps. It's NOT an EASY task, because we GOT ACCUSTOMED TO "SLAVERY". It became an essential part of our life. But now u can get rid of that nerve-racking part. Spot this opportunity, and grab it! You just have to allow yourself to let go of the notion of "charging" from your life (and the anxiety it creates in the background)! This way you'll gain EXTRAORDINARY FREEDOM!
//For advanced people: u can build in your w.less ch. pad under the surface of your commode, or table (1,5 cm range)! This way u REALLY get the PERFECT ILLUSION!//
2nd: the whole thing HAS TO BE EFORTLESS! If you can't use your charging pad with ease, and reliability, then it's USELESS! You HAVE TO SOLVE this problem. MAKE IT PERFECTLY RELIABLE! Maybe buying another pad? I have a Nilkin, it has three coils and it's impossible to put the phone on it in a way that it would not charge. It's simple, and perfect.
So unfortunately a dock is a no go.
//For advanced people: u can have a w.less ch. pad also in your car, and at your work, if you need such a huge amount of energy in one day! //
Good luck with transforming your life into a peaceful living :D!
