That's the thing... People are starting realising that similar phones like Huawei p10 do the same for much less, apple no longer is the standard of innovation and they are really expensive. Most of the performance you won't need for everyday use. Many of my apple friends want to try different devices

AnonD-66340, 30 Sep 2017Look at Samsung Benchmarks and then, see it lag and hang :D SHAME!Those who want Fastest and greatest will go for iPhone 8 because it has fastest mobile processor on the planet currently. And even upcoming Snapdragon 845 will be much slower compared to A11 chip.

Snapdragon 845 that will launch in March 2019 will give single core scores of 2600 which is same as given by A9 launched in September 2015.
When your iPhone 6 is 3 years old and yet, you still can't afford an upgrade and you claim, that people with Galaxy S8 in hands, who are critical towards Apple are "poor" android users.

1. Poor interconnectivity - If I want to transfer an image/file from iOS device to iOS device, or iOS device to a Mac I can easily via a Bluetooth and Wifi using a builtin OS service called AirDrop, if I want to transfer iPhone to Android, I have to email it, which isn't helpful if you haven't got a signal.
2. Slow Memory and insufficient backup options - I want quick access to my data, and Android doesn't support NVMe flash storage. In addition, with iCloud and iTunes backups, if something happens to my iPhone I can quickly restore from backup. If I buy a new phone, I can restore the old phone's backup to the new one and be running in a little over an hour. If I upgrade, one iPhone will transfer its settings to the new phone just by placing them near one another. With no external memory card, I don't have to worry about someone stealing it and getting my data. No tightly integrated backup scheme, no phone to phone transfer scheme, not interested thanks.
3. Chaotic environment - I find that Google's control of things to be chaotic with unconvincing security. It seems there's always malware roaming around in the Google Play store, with second class apps which developers spend less time on because Android users don't pay for apps and the only way they can achieve success is by offering a free app and showing advertisements. Google just doesn't exercise enough control over their platform.
What I find quite interesting is most companies don't allow Android phones due to their chaotic security situation, and have standardized on iPhone even though they're more expensive.
Point counterpoint. You have to look at the situation from both sides of the fence.
Verne, 01 Oct 2017Like Google did last year when their Pixel was number 1? Like it or not, most of these site... moreThey sure did test it thoroughly, shame they did not include in results camera ui, shutter speed in low light and audio recording, of which at least 2 are as important to shooting as that bokeh. Or more.

Anonymous, 01 Oct 2017 No it's not Agreed. Removing the headphone jack just creates more wear on the USB-C/Lightning port causing earlier repairs or premature failure of the port. Removing the MicroSD card slot makes users forced to buy the higher capacity phone, not to mention faster wear on the flash storage instead of having the removable storage be the one subjected to wear.

They are sooooo average from quality to everything els, that actually the only thing you pay for, is a way inside the prison of a Corporation.
AnonD-368020, 30 Sep 2017In short, It is a killer phone with big bezels and no 3.5 mm audio jack. Apple doesn't pay reviewers because they don't have to - though I do recall a scandal involving Samsung paying posters.
As for exposures - Samsung tends to oversaturate and slightly overexpose. Apple's exposures are generally more lifelike, though now with HDR always on it seems like you get more bluish skies.
