Disclaimer: I used to have a MacBook Air (top of the line) and an iPhone yet after reflecting on my current gadgets usage I realised that both gadgets are way to expensive for what I need. I did eventually replace my MBA and iPhone into a Chromebook and Chinese phone at 20% to 25% of Apple price.
I understand that Apple products are stylish with premium quality which is reflected to their price (and branding) nonetheless in my case I prefer to save those differences and use it for my future. Each to their own though.
That battery life is pretty poor. i'm sure most users would sacrifice an extra mm to get an extra 20-30 hours.

deep inside their heart, samsung fans are admiring iphone. they always hope someday they will swith to iphone, and say goodbye to the ugly bloaty touchwiz.
1000 euro for a phone? it is insane ! it doesn't matter if it's Apple or Samsung.
come on, I can buy a very good laptop with these money.
there is no common sense anymore. The companies are too greedy and of course, the people are so stupid to change their phones yearly. for what? for some extra pixels which you do not notice them anyway? :)
4K video = useless for the human eye too.

But have you any idea how annoying would it be downloading each and every song and video every time if you need to lísten or watch continuously say fòr 1 hour.. Can your money buy back the time you wasted for this even if yot are on a faster network. Whereas you get instant access to everything on an sd card including uninterrupted music and video for hours . What you gonna do when you need to download sone thing inportant from cloud but out of network area. In my opinion cloud storage is only good for storing something that need more privacy and security than on the phone itself and for things you dont need very often. You are just a hardcore fan covering up iphone's weaknesses.

ya and iphone always did that.
When is everyone just going to get over the fact that phones are very personal devices and we all use them for different purposes? iPhones do what the iFans want them do to and Android does what Droidfans want them to do? Comparing such vastly different OS and hardware philosophies is pointless. They should just reduce this website to a Yes or No format for features and functions of each phone and whether users like it. You'd probably get more useful information across than people arguing optimisation over raw power or what's best between an open or closed OS. Each have their pros and each have their cons just pick one that best suits what YOU want out of a phone and grow the hell up.
I like nd love apple phone alot but i cant aford when i save money 4 ds even i cant buy becz its expensive plz do som give us low price

I will admit this is by far the best iPhone ever produced and I'm pleased you guys finally have some long awaited upgrades but that base 16GB model is a joke. It'll be great for those that want their iPhone for being a phone but it is NOT enough storage. I appreciate that the GPU is great for developers and it's cool that apps and games can and will be rendered quickly and with more elements, etc but it's no real use to the general public who will eat up the base storage option (usually as the pricing for higher levels of storage are silly) which won't allow for much when it comes to the great stuff these developers will produce.

Apple has demurred in the face of competition and produced a phone with superfluous features that would've been more palatable had the status of the smartphone market not been so tenuous.

Of course it is, it gives developers whole new playground to play with and they showed the preview in keynote what is possible with all that power and 3d touch
Anonymous, 02 Oct 2015I don't see any problems with 2+ year old androids. As long as it is running 4.0 it'll be fine.Whaa...? Sure they are fine with 4.X.X, but a lot of those droids that are still running 4.X.X are absolutely capable of running Lollipop, if not Marshmallow. One X, Galaxy S III, Galaxy Note II, Galaxy Nexus, just to name a few. Face it, Android update cycle sucks. Google and other OEMs just don't bother to update their devices.
Take Nexus 4 for example, its hardware is more than capable of handling Marshmallow, yet Google apparently just cba to update it and decided it should just stick to Lollipop for the rest of its life. Same case as Note 3, One M7, and S4, the other three mainstream devices of 2013. We even got to see how Motorola just decided not to update their last year's flagship and this year's budget device from Marshmallow, even though their hardware are far from obsolete.
Anonymous, 03 Oct 2015bro that comparison is by real world tests. use all those device then come and talk. As if we have some synthetic benchmark of how fast a mobile fingerprint scans a finger...
Fear, 03 Oct 2015Nice article and good explanation of how the 8 cores are distributing the workload.
But as i ... moreWhat they have done in that article is how things works in real life under normal usages.
And a CPU with 8 cores can use much lesser power than a CPU with 2 CPU-cores. Not only that, but the Exynos 7420 CPU that is in my Galaxy S6 edge+ is generating much lesser heat over the Galaxy Note 4 with the Snapdragon 805 that i also have. And the more heat generated the more power it will use.
You are correct that it's not a "true" 8 core CPU as it's a Dual Quad-Core CPU. But all 8 CPU-cores can be used when needed.
And the thing you said about Samsung pushing the speed to the maximum under benchmarks. I find it funny that you actually are saying that, because find me any benchmark applications for a computer with Windows that isn't pushing everything on the CPU or GPU to the limit?
The reason i'm saying this is because it's normal that a benchmark application is pushing everything on a computer or whatever to the maximum speeds and so on.
Or are you saying it's cheating to utilize the speeds the CPU and GPU comes out of the box with?
And no, i'm not fooled by anything because i'm enough technical and expert on the field of computers and smartphones. I buy the phones that let's me decide how i'm gonna use my phone. Peronalization is the most important thing for me as i'm not gonna be comfortable with things i can't personalize.
