ljames, 09 Apr 2016Im not an apple fan but i like the se actually. Power in a compact device like one of the xper... moreExactly. I miss the old minis...
I currently use both a Samsung S6 and the iPhone 5s. Love S6 camera, performance and superb screen, but gotta say that the 5s size is quite practical for ordinary activities (not so much for media viewing). Perhaps I will upgrade to the SE, don't know yet - it seems to be a lot faster. But anyway, it is good to know that there is another option for people who prefer smaller screens.
Is cross-platform benchmark reliable?
i always wanted and Iphone especially the se is simply my favourite. Yah, dont say I'm an apple fanboy, but i konw that apple products are really reliable. I am currently using a 2009 mac book pro and after 7 years, mann its still really awesome.
Compared to my android device, i dont have updates from android nor samsung, once you get the phone, its not updateable. Looking at its attractive price, i have to say NICE APPLE. Their absolutely amazing build quality, and snappy programs (thanks to iOS) made me crave for this iPhone
Im not an apple fan but i like the se actually. Power in a compact device like one of the xperia minis.
z5 compact is much better than this surely expensive. se although released after cant beat z5 . i wish the z6 compact or whatever with sd820. sony

SolTsiolis, 08 Apr 2016So i guess you don't sync your iphone on itunes and upload everything?But again your pictures ... more"They hear from apple that their product is x times faster than the original iphone and they buy it."
Sadly, this is very true. You can have the faster CPU and with most ram on the latest Android, using it still feeling kinda cranky. I mean, look at all the Android phones now, 4GB of ram and counting! Games performances are still not as fluid as on the iPhone. To make things worse, Touchwiz itself already taken more than HALF of the amount of available ram.
Everytime there is a review about an apple product there are so many disadvantages while if there is a review about a samsung product there are minumum disadvantages.. they even ddnt announced s7 has the same design, no fm radio, no 3d touch, no infrared, no removable battery, no modular design, no ois in front camera(coming in htc m10), same ip68 on s5 (need ip69 for improvement), still 1st gen finger print scanner on s6, etc.
AnonD-308243, 09 Apr 2016haah, main disadvantages on the introduction page is exactly what apples engineering goes agai... moreTrue!!!
I've noticed that people who don't give a f**k about technology and just want a phone that will work 'out of the box' will go for iPhone.
As for updates, with iPhone, it's very seamless; but of course with Android as well; but iPhone people won't admit that or won't even bother.
And will be totally unimpressed with whatever feature Android or WP has over iPhone. They will simply force themselves to live without it.
haah, main disadvantages on the introduction page is exactly what apples engineering goes against anyway. no micro sd card, non removable battery. yeah truth is apple customers dont want to fiddle with phones anyway they want a unit that come ready to work as it should and fast with no issues, coz recently i noticed that stressing over updates and hardware was for immature minds unless for those who can and are engineers of the consumer products such as these iphones. for the ladies and gentlemen on the consumers section i say pls mates relax and enjoy them gadgets dont be all angry and all bitter on benchmarks and the likes.
sub hd screen, 1.2 mp camera, what is this 2010?
the z5 compact is alos $400 and its light years ahead of this it seems.
but who am I kidding, iSheeps deserve this and more.

If u love it buy it if u dont just dont say its bad :)

Anonymous, 08 Apr 2016I love mine. I did not buy Android because I did not want to be stuck with old OS without update. The not update is done, the ammermetru, in the cave?
To say that this is a smart phone, it is a blasphemy. An example, rear camera phone, 1.2 F? It still uses in this century, so, from prehistoric times?

Also I have phone numbers of managers working in Fortune 500 companies. Obviously my needs are different from someone whose primary purpose to buy a phone is to watch youtube videos.
Value wise, iphone is far superior. Immediate updates, FDE out of the box, Hardware encryption. BYOD environment support unlike nothing else. FIPS certification. Worldwide warranty, True world phone. Customer support that is second to none. No lag. Reliable and robust. Curated app store. Among many others.
Even the finger print management system is far superior to your mate. Does it have a secure enclave to store prints?
Gorgeous phone. If I had not bought an iPhone 6S for Christmas, I would be buying one of these today. Classy, classic design. A real phone and not a glorified tablet.
