Performance tests prove that iPhone is the best out there so let the haters hate.

Do you know that Microsoft have voice command and dictation as early as 2002-2003...
Was that ever use-able?
I think the best thing Apple and the new MS is doing on their ecosystem is to wait and refine the technology and make sure it is useable before they put it in their product and sell it to people.
The issue on the high battery capacity and fast charging is one example of that. Samsung pushed the limit too much and too early... Is the current technology that we have really can support what they wanted to achieve?
I am not a blind follower... it so happen that I learned about Human Center Design... I've had an android before. My first smart phone is P990i, then I used Windows Mobile, then Android, then Windows Phone, then iPhone.
I criticized iPhone a lot of times before... Then I realize, they really good in making products that are humanly useable...
Anytime LG G5 over iPhone 7 or 7Plus..
Much better in almost every aspect.
Specially the G5 Camera is unbeatable.
I really do not understand the continuously extreme over hyped situation for a phone that (also and again) has at least two problems (home button and sizzling sound).
In my view this 'new' phone is actually noting new, or a least not a lot. In terms of design it is miles behind the competition, especially that of Samsung, but also most other brands make nicer phones that this one.
For the 'fans', I am objective to this and will admit if there would be any great innovations... but I cannot find them.

But for those who objectively look at various options, will see them as deficiencies....Apple iPhones in terms of specs and features, way behind the competition. They are excellent in few areas but thats about it. They ask too much for doing few things great!!!
Weight is good but i wouldn't disappoint also if it has bigger battery for more weight(i prefer 7 plus for this matter-battery scores are not so good)
display is good and .... iphone loses some of it's wow factor every year.
A10 Chip would be impressive if it was 4 months ago and for now i think qualcomm would kill it in less than three months(nothing i care, SD600 series are good enough for me) ...
I just want to say common apple... what happened to you, until iphone three and three S there we used to had an iphone and till next iphone we absolutely could say it is the best phone in the market.
Anonymous, 21 Sep 2016Thank you for the review! My next phone will now be LG V20, not iPhone 7!Congratulations! You're not an iDiot! :D
Hello. I want to address a few things I found you are concerned about in the comments section.
1. GeekBench 4. The GB4 scores are incompatible with the GB3 ones because the test routine is different - hence the different numbers you are seeing now. Also, as far as I know, GB did something that made Kryo better in single-core than A72 when it shouldn't have been.
And don't you worry - no developer will push Apple in its scores as some of you are thinking. There is no conspiracy, just great CPU design.
2. The battery test. Before Jan 29, 2016 (the review of Redmi 3), we tested the phones at 50% brightness set by the brightness slider. We didn't measure them first say 500 nits and then set them to 250, we just put the brightness slider in the middle and that's it.
You can see in the case of the iPhone 6s that the 50% brightness equals 150 nits - it's in the table in the review section. In fact, you can use these tables in the old reviews to get an idea of the nits difference.
And while we now use 200nits fixed brightness, the final endurance ratings are rather comparable as the biggest impact has the standby test (21 hours, no screen involved), then we have 1 hour of 3G talk (no screen involved), and 1 hour in each video and browser where the screen is active component. So while the separate video and browser scores will be VERY different if the brightness was set to 150 or 300 nits, the final endurance rating would move +/-3 hours at best.
3. iawnaek, thank you :)
Fast phone with average display ,average battery and average camera . There are better looking phones with better camera ,better battery ,better screen . This phone is only faster and called iphone .

Guaranteed.

Sun Sand, 21 Sep 2016This silly company still going with proprietary port instead of "USB C", how lame is that!!I agree with you on this...
If they decided to remove the headphone jack, they should at least use the standard USB-C... It's kind of weird for headphone manufacturer to provide interface for Lightning as well as USB-C (if ever other phone manufacturers follow the same step)

Micro SD card - I selected the 64GB 6s+ and I no longer require SD card...
Customization - of what? UI customization - for children
Higher display resolution - Can you tell the difference between 720p, 1080p, 2K with your bare eyes? Do you really need to use your phone that close?
stereo video recording - yeap I still wish for this but not that of Android but that of Lumia 1520. Their High Definition sound is so good!!!
Fast and wireless charging - I had a 1520 before with wireless charging, never used it at all. I find current charging as acceptable. I never dreamed of super fast charging...
and of course.. headphone Jack. - I wished they didn't take this out though... but to innovate means to disrupt... but let's see where is this one is going...
