iPhone 6 and 6 Plus vs the best of Android: has Apple caught up?

September isn’t even half-way through and it’s already been an awesome month for mobile technology. Last week saw the announcement of the Xperia Z3, Note 4 and new Moto X and now Apple has unveiled the latest members of the iPhone family. While Android and iOS are two very different animals targeted at different kinds of users, it’s still interesting to see how the latest from Cupertino compares to the greatest Android handsets on offer, especially considering the fact that Apple has finally closed the display size gap.

Obviously on-paper hardware comparisons only give us one side of the story, but it’s still a nice way to get a glance at how the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus stand when compared to the Android camp. For this comparison, we are comparing the biggest and most well-known Android offerings against Apple’s latest. Due to its sheer popularity (notoriety?) we’ve also included OnePlus’ self-described flagship killer and there’s also the Nexus 5, as it is currently the ‘face’ of stock Android.

Despite Apple’s best efforts to convince folks its retina standards and tiny displays are good enough for their phones, we live in an age of massive displays with 1080p resolutions, or even QHD in the case of newer devices like the Note 4 and LG G3. While the iPhone 6 still doesn’t compete in the same display league as its competition, the new iPhone does close the gap a bit more this time around. The iPhone 6 packs a 4.7-inch display, a .7-inch jump from its predecessor and just a little smaller than the 5 to 5.2-inch standard we see with Android flagships these days.

Turning to the resolution, the iPhone 6 comes in dead last when compared to recent Android flagships thanks to its less-than-impressive 1334×750 resolution which brings 326 PPI (same as iPhone 5S). In comparison, most Android flagships range between 401 – 538 ppi.

As for the iPhone 6 Plus? This 5.5-inch monster is more akin to what we find in the Android camp, particularly so-called phablets like the Note 4. Resolution wise, there’s also a jump to 1080p, offering 401ppi, which more comfortably fits in the range you’d expect from an Android device — even if it’s on the lower-end of the scale.

Comparing Apple’s processor and RAM isn’t exactly easy. On paper, it’s obvious that the quad and even octa-core giants of the Android world kick the crap out of Apple, coupled with RAM sizes in the 2 to 3GB range.

Of course, we have to remember that Apple’s processor is 64-bit, which could give it a tiny edge (arguably). Second, Apple has always been less about spec wars and more about optimizing its OS to play nicely with minimal hardware prowess. Apple fans will argue that this dual-core A8 with 1GB of RAM (rumored amount, unconfirmed at moment) will work as nicely with iOS as a quad-core with 2 or 3GB RAM would running Android. Are they right? Yes and no. Apple does optimize its OS to work (to a point) with lesser specs, but we still can’t help but think that a beefier CPU, GPU and more RAM would make a noticeable difference nonetheless.

Still, even if Apple can get by with modest specs, why not throw something a bit beefier in and really wow Apple fans? It’s 2014 after all, and dual-core/1GB-RAM setups seem more than a little dated. Turning to graphics however, the early demos showing off the A8’s prowess look pretty promising and could even upstage the performance of high-end Android devices when it comes to gaming.

Somewhat similarly to its CPU/CPU, Apple’s on-paper camera specs don’t always give us a full picture. Typically iPhone devices produce fairly decent images, even if their sensor sizes often aren’t quite as good as many Android flagships.

Until we get a closer look at the iPhone 6, it’s hard to really say how the 8MP shooter compares to some of the beefiest Android cameras. The good news is that Apple is introducing a new sensor, and the Plus model even gets OIS technology. Unfortunately, the iPhone 6 will stick with digital stabilization tech. Bottom-line, we imagine the experience is similar to most Android flagships, though it’s hard to say if it’s a little better or a little worse at this stage.

We’ll let the chart speak for most of the extras here, but it’s worth noting that there’s one new extra not mentioned on the chart that’s pretty much a given for Android device’s but a first-time thing for Apple: NFC. That’s right, Apple has a new “Apple Pay” system that appears to integrate NFC technology into the mix.

Otherwise, it seems that things like fingerprint scanner and other special features are about the same as we saw with the iPhone 5S.

Wrap up: has Apple finally caught up?

samsung galaxy note 4 vs lg g3 quick look aa (1 of 2)

Until we get our hands on the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus or start hearing more hands-on reviews and details about them, we can really only judge the new phones based on on-paper specs. As it stands, the new iPhones seems to have caught up in a few crucial ways such as screen size and the addition of NFC. Of course, there’s really nothing that new here either, at least from what we can tell.

Apple’s latest handsets seem like a step in the right direction, even though their on-paper-spec-prowess still pales next to most Android flagships. Actual real world performance, however, could be a very different story.

Personally, I think that the latest Apple devices are interesting additions to the mobile world and that Android OEMs should take notice, though I’d never choose either of the handsets over a good Android flagship. The reason has less to do with blind hatred or fanboyism, and more to do with the fact that I like customization, options, new hardware innovations faster (NFC just got added by Apple..), the Google ecosystem and I simply don’t enjoy the walled garden that is iOS. What do you think of Apple’s latest, how do they compare to 2014 Android flagships?

Note – not all Apple specs details are fully laid out in the charts above. When we get more official details we’ll be sure to update where applicable.

      everyone at that keynote came in their pants looking at those bigger screens

        yeahhh all off a sudden 3.5 isnt perfect because of 1 handed use bolloks

        • kg2105

          Seriously, the one handed use thing is the stupidest argument against bigger screens. For those few times where you are already doing something and need to use the phone at the same time, use voice commands or speakerphone. Rest of the time big screens are so much better for browsing, reading, videos, playing games, social apps, even messaging.

          • Suidan

            What are you talking about. Unless your iphone is taking up most of your pocket space which it obviously isn’t then a fraction of an inch increase in size does not make a difference, your wallet takes up more space, and keys, do you have keys? Bigger screen is better let’s just be honest with each other, no one chats or texts one handed and the only time people use one handed operation is when making a phone call, which is easily achieved on a galaxy note phone so you are talking absolute nonsense!!!!

        • ThunderCrackR

          Actually, Apple studies shows that people’ hands got bigger over the past 2 years, so they can easily fit an 4.7 and 5.5 inches screens!

      You’re right! Just compare: Widgets, changable keyboard, predictive words in keyboard, extended notifications etc. are all features which Android has for years, also voice, video and location iMessage sounds like they copied WhatsApp, best display with 326/401 ppi (but we have Android phones with over 500ppi screens), wi-fi ac, Voice Over LTE, LTE-A at 150MB, NFC (all features which Android phones already have), then, when it comes to the comparation with Samsung: 2.5D curved display protector (like S3, Note2, Note4, also like Lumias), barometer (Samsung has barometers in their phones starting with the S3 in 2012), Health App (S Health, anyone?), phase detection Auto-Focus (first introduced on the S5), best photo (first introduced on the Note2), Apple PAY is just like PayPal with Fingerprint scanner on the S5 and Note4. Also, the Galaxy Alpha is thinner than all the iPhones. So, Apple is trying but for people with brains they have to work harder.

          • TimL

            Don’t worry about tiger. Every time apple announces something, he runs to the net doing damage control, trying to justify all the corners that apple cut. 1gb of RAM? Oh, extra RAM would drain the battery. Only a rookie would think that RAM makes enough of a difference in battery drain compared to screen and CPU. Not even sure how he tries to justify the outdated screen resolution and the 1800mah battery.

            The only trump card that the iphone has is the CPU. While it is impressive, it makes very little difference to the end user who can’t comprehend the difference between a 4 second wait to a 4.5 second wait for an app to load.

            His final retort is always to educate yourself. Coming from a guy who is obviously ignoring facts that are in front of him, it’s hard to take him seriously.

          Does this mean they are all stupid? bc switzerland is globally seen one of the most educated countries!

      • Name goes here

        All true. I think the strength of Android is that it’s not just a single manufacturer like Apple. Dozens of companies keep pushing the bar.

        • tiger

          That is actually a huge problem with Android! Dozens of companies doing their own thing…none get it right with all the features. Too many brains = too many ideas = diluting the experience.

          Vertical integration is superior to horizontal integration.

          • Andrew T Roach

            Agreed. Look at the batch of flagships releasing now. Brand new 32bit Processors that can’t even fully take advantage of Android L’s 64bit code; and the free battery life and performance improvements that come with it.

            ON THEIR NEXT UPDATE.

            That’s fragmentation folks. Obsolete software from the start because OEM’s are dependent on obsolete off-the-shelf parts.

          • is4u2p

            Are you serious? 64bit is about addressable memory man and having a 64bit CPU without the RAM to support it is just plain stupid.

            Seriously, I will take a G3 with 3 Gigs of RAM over an iPhone 64Bit with 1 Gig of RAM.

          • Cole

            It depends on the opera rings system. IOS is designed for 64 bit. Android is designed for. 2gb of ram. Plus this website is completely bias it is in the name!

          • Cole

            Meant operating system

          • Oleg Vorkunov

            Cole, really. So how do you compare 64 bit to 2 GB?

            64 bit CPU provides 5% increase in processing power IF (big IF) application is using 64 bit integer. Plus it allows to address RAM greater than 4 GB. iPhone runs on 1.7 Ghz while all android phones runs at 2.5 Ghz. That is almost 50% increase in processing power. So tell me then, which CPU is faster?
            iPhone dies not take any advantage of 64 bit using only 1 GB of RAM.

          • tiger

            Ignorance breed stupidity…read up on ARMv8 architecture. GHz is only valid if you compare two chips using same architecture.

            Apple A7/8 uses a modern ARMv8 architecture…delivering massive performance improvement despite the lower Ghz.

            Qualcomm S800/801/805 uses ARMv7, which was introduced over 20 years (!!!) ago. Inefficient junk.

            Really? Then why is the shield tablet smoking it and the Tegra 4 actually beat it in many areas.

            Oh and why is it that the Apple CPU is always way behind in physics tests.

            Time to go back to the drawing board with that…

            Quotes from above:

            “Looking at the table, the first thing that becomes apparent are the truly impressive top speeds of 6.08 cpb for BLAKE2b and 4.07 cpb for NORX6441. These values translate to throughputs of about 230 MiBps for BLAKE2b and to about 343 MiBps for NORX6441 (assuming a frequency of 1.4 GHz as available in the iPad Air). For comparison, AVX2 implementations of BLAKE2b and NORX6441 achieve on Haswell about 3.15 cpb and 2.51 cpb, respectively.”

            “Apple’s LLVM commits indicate a massive 192 entry reorder buffer (coincidentally the same size as Haswell’s ROB). Mispredict penalty goes up slightly compared to Swift, but Apple does present a range of values (14 – 19 cycles). This also happens to be the same range as Sandy Bridge and later Intel Core architectures (including Haswell).”

            No it really doesn’t…

            Without the addressable memory you will see minimal benefit from going 32bit to 64bit.

            You will however see an increase in file size.

            The A8 is a nice piece of work but, don’t kid yourself, Apple’s biggest gain is in their nand drives and anandtech showed toast with benchmarks.

          • tiger

            Educate yourself…it is not about memory…it is all about: ARMv8.

            Your Android chips are based on tech 25 years ago! Ancient history. Qualcomm has been screwing its ignorant customers (YOU) by increasing GHz and calling it a day! Pure MARKETING.

          • is4u2p

            I know what arm v8 is and it has nothing to do with that, it has to do with Apple’s half hearted attempt at 64bit!

            For the record, I use an iPhone 6 after years of using Android, because I finally feel that Apple is listening and iOS has finally given people most of the features they want without Google’s bass politics.

            Don’t like it? get a Samsung flip phone.

          • is4u2p

            You say this without evidence…

            The only company trying to copy the iPhone is Samsung…

            HTC is doing its own thing… LG gave us a 1440P screen, 3 Gigs of RAM, an edge to edge screen that is as big as the 6+ screen and yet the footprint is actually close to the same size as a phone with a 5″ screen.

            Reality is, only Samsung with their S5 has had designs on copying Apple.

            Oh and, who had beats audio first?

          • tiger

            Closer than Apple? In what? Stupid 2k display with a processor that can’t run it? 16 MP camera that can’t take a decent pic in low light? A Nexus phone that has shitty audio processor (DAC and amp)?

            Oh yeah, Android is getting close…getting close to being purely marketing! You know…the accusation that you Phandroids been leveling at Apple all these years!

            What has Apple done? Camera is top-notch. Processor is top end AND efficient. Materials are top notch. Display is consistently ranked the best in colors, brightness, and saturation…and yeah, 6/6+ displays are top notch too. Customer service top notch. TouchID is ranked by far the most useful.

            You tell me how Android is getting closer?

          • is4u2p

            Are you serious?

            Notification system Android got it right, Apple copied…

            3rd party keyboards… These were huge in giving Android an advantage and Gesture typing was even put into the stock Android keyboard.

            Allowing 3rd party apps to talk to each other? Yep, Android did it first again and Apple didn’t even have a structure in place for that until iOS 8.

            Swipe to close apps (WebOS did it first), Android did this before iOS as well and then Apple followed them again.

            Predictive text and limiting the number of correction options were both done on Android first. iOS just got these features and before that the spell check was horrible!

            How about on the hardware… NFC again, Android phones did it first, Qi wireless charging? Android phones did it first. Geo-Location based actions? Android phones did it first. Nanocoating? Again, Android phones were first, no case needed.

            I can go on all day with this but, I think you get the picture. Android manufacturers were pushing new features and even Apple is being forced to play the new feature game now.

            As for iOS, it was horribly incomplete in features where as Android was replete with them.

            You can say what you want but, if the best thing you can say is, we have a next generation SoC, then your platform is way behind and has some serious soul searching to do.

            Oh and fingerprint scanner was on an Android phone first as well but, never caught on.

          • tiger

            3rd party keyboards etc all about security, and limiting exposure to sensitive info.

            You talk so much about Android being first…how many freaking FLASHLIGHT APPS are there that have stolen information??? Even today, there are still flashlight apps stealing personal info! Why? Because of lack of proper sandboxing of each app.

            NFC? yeah, and how popular was that again? LOL. Why? Because Apple was not involved…until now, and only thru Apple Pay. Apple is the key to high end stuff. So, if Apple is not involved, there is no traction where it matters.

            Geo-based locations? Hell, on some high end Androids, the GPS sensor is not even working from factory!! LOL. How many Samsungs have you heard that GPS does not work??? LOL. Are you freaking kidding me?!

            Nano-coating? That’s OK…i prefer sapphire usage where it counts, like camera lens and fingerprint reader.

            Yeah, but look how good TouchID vs. the Android versions. No comparison in tech and usage.

            Android may be first in a few, BUT the implementation is shoddy. Apple may take some time but they get it right. Take sandboxing…Apple took its time to implement talk b/w apps until they get it right. Android went all out in allowing apps to talk to each other………and then you have these Google’s TOP APPS stealing your info!!!!!! WTF?!

          • tiger
          • Colin

            The Note 4 camera 8 better than the iPhones not just my opinion but in tests too. Both are great cameras with strengths and weaknesses but the Nother edges it and you can take higher resolution pictures if u want.

            The Note has the best screen too a step up from the iPhone which is not in the same league.

          • tiger

            Tell me ONE Android phone that has good design, good camera, good display, good audio (headphone) performance, and good processor that is future proof.

            Samsung probably comes closest but still suck in camera…and still lacking in processor. Note 4 probably comes closest of all Android…but yeah, still behind iPhone 6/6s.

            ONE example. That’s all. Just ONE.

            Basically Android cannot compete with the vertical integration of Apple…so, they go all MARKETING to fool ignorant folks to buy their phones.

          • etienne.jean.theron

            Well, you do get a lot wider variety of hardware to pick from, and the software can be mixed and matched from the innovations you like and the ones you don’t can be left out. That’s the power of AOSP and software such as Xposed

          • jay

            “innovations” lol!

          • etienne.jean.theron

            Uhm well yes. It is the only platform where the manufactures are experimenting with the latest technology. Apple is playing it safe. You won’t see a flexible phone, ISOCELL, Ultrapixel, AMOLED, Clearblack, Stereo Camera, Stereo speakers, Self healing back, flexible lithium polimer battery, head tracking, IR blaster, UV sensor, Air gesture, Hyper sensitive capacitive display (glove mode), External SD card, MHL, USB OTG, USB 3, Replaceable battery, IP 68 (or similar), 3GB 1866MHz RAM, NFC, Dedicated Camera key, or the price of $300 for a flagship in the Apple camp. What exactly did Apple innovate? A logo?

        • Guest

          Apple got it right. it’s called iPhone. What every android manufacturer is trying to be.

      • tiger

        And yet, android features often fall flat in practice….

        Just a few examples…

        Widgets that eat battery.

        iMessage that is light years superior to anything Android has now.

        FaceTime that is superior in quality (and ease of use) than any Android apps.

        500000ppi screens that have shitty outside viewing, poor colors, and eats battery for lunch.

        2000 MP cameras that can’t beat a year old camera on the 5s.

        S Health that gets about zero support from medical community.

        Vault thingy that gets zero support from business community.

        You are right about keyboards. Remember, unlike Samsung and other Android OEMs (that always try to beat Apple to the punch), Apple has their annual announcements same time every year. It is not that Samsung beats Apple with phase detection (for example); it is that apple introduces it same time every year. It is Samsung that RUSHES out the door features that are half-baked (or half-assed); you guys know this more than me by now!

        You know…it is sometimes better to be late to the party…but you get it right. TouchID that actually works well. iBeacon that is still not avail on Android. Display that actually works out in the sun or gives realistic colors. A processor that based on an architecture that actually is made in this decade.

        I see that you did not mention processor in your argument…kinda important, no? While Android is clamoring for the FIRST generation of generic ARMv8 processor, Apple is already on their 2nd gen CUSTOM design ARMv8 chip.

        Before responding back, please think about what i wrote.

        • Jake Wrigley

          I like how you mention battery life multiple times at least android can afford to get their batteries eaten ha!

          • tiger

            So, you agree with me…good.

          • Jake Wrigley

            Not necessarily but if they do then I wouldn’t imagine it would be much at all and they can afford to get their battery eaten… Iphones are crap full stop

          • tiger

            Such ignorance. Where are the techies that ACTUALLY care about technology???

            Are you dealing with limited IQ of your brain, or what?

        • AndroidAuthority

          S5’s camera is really better than i5shit. Check out the flagship camera shootout 2014 of phonearena’s or Phone Dog’s camera shootout mid 2014. The best display ever tested the 1080p Full HD Super Amoled beat the iCrap’s not even 720p display. The S5’s battery delivers superb battery life + the Ultra Power Saving Mode let’s you use the phone for days. You have to charge the iCrap 5s more than 3 times a day. Look at HTC how brilliant their design and their features are. Look at LG’s G3 and G Flex who innovate, Look at their Display’s, Their Design. Look at Samsung how great their display’s are and their many other features. Look at Motorola how flawless are they in offering great Stock Android powerhouses. Look these people including all other Phone manufacturers move the way forward. From 1280×720 displays to 2560×1440 displays while the iCrap is not even 720p it is 640p. Shame.Compare that to the iCrap. iSheeps will never learn. Look in future when android completely dominates the mobile market. iSheeps will have nothing but to please their shepherd.

          • jay

            i5shit? wtf?

          • tiger

            DPreview Connect…look it up. The S5 now shares #1 ranking with a phone that is ONE YEAR old.

            You may want to check the latest in display…Samsung AMOLED is nice. No argument.

            Ultra Power Saving Mode = limp home mode. Yeah, it saves battery…at the expense of the user.

            I love that you keep on mentioning displays over and over again. One little problem…the ONLY one worth mentioning is Samsung latest AMOLED. G3 display sucks…too advance for processor, which heats up and cuts down performance…stutter/lags….

            YET, the one thing that NONE of the Android can get right is…packaging all of what you said in ONE package. NONE.

            Let me help you understand…iPhones consistently have:
            1. Great displays where brightness (outdoors), colors, and saturations matter. Resolution is PURE MARKETING.

            2. Great cameras that shoot CONSISTENTLY good all the time.

            3. Powerful efficient processors that OVER-ENGINEERED for the phone and display.

            4. Build quality and materials.

            5. TouchID that actually works and helps you.

            6. Security with Activation LOCK.

            7. RESALE value.

            8. Customer service.

            9. Retention rate. People who buys iPhones will buy it again.

            10. Android has market share due to appealing to the poor. People own Android…but aspires to iPhones.

            11. In business world, do you see Android? On Airlines, do you see Android? In schools, do you see Android? In medical world, do you see Android? Who did IBM pick to partner with? Remember, IBM should pick Android bc they deal with Linux.

            12. Despite Samsung selling tons of phones, their profit margins are less than Apple. Why do you think that is?

            THINK before responding.

            Sorry dude but in my office we had a coleague’s iPhone6 and my new Xperia Z3C…
            iPhone have connection problem with the Wi-Fi, also didn’t want to connect with the office Bluetooth speakers that’s why we using my Z3C as party juckbox after work.
            I could go down your list and prove you wrong of almost every point you made.
            1. Display.. Well Sony is brighter, sorry, point not valid.
            2. Camera may be the one thing Apple does better actually. I admit it.
            4. It feels a little bit more premium at first, but after two days iPhone 6 already had scratches at the back… Seriously for 1000$?!?!?
            5. My colleague never use that…

          • is4u2p

            Seriously? Build quality and materials?

            iPhone 4 could short the antennas…

            iPhone 5 had faulty power buttons…

            All iPhones have a huge point of failure with the home button.
            iPhone 5c would actually set some poor girls pants on fire when the plastic backing cracked and ruptured the battery… No plastic Android phones have done this.

            iPhone 6+ has a weak area near the volume buttons (Proven to be there).

          • BP

            This is classic compare all of the good features of multiple android devices against one iPhone. Each phone has room for improvement in certain areas, iPhone included. Going up against any single phone out there, iPhone has advantages and disadvantages, but ultimately it’s not getting crushed by any single phone like you think it is. If it was, it wouldn’t be selling like crazy. You can make up as many reasons as you like for why consumers keep buying iPhones, but in the end consumers aren’t total idiots. If you can’t come to grips with this in any other way than “the consumers are iSheeps” then you’re the one who is blinded.

        • Marcus Ray

          “FaceTime that is superior in quality (and ease of use) than any Android apps.”

          Uh….Wrong! Hangouts is a lot better than Facetime. FT is always full of glitches and boots you off the video chat at the most inopportune times. So……no, in my experience, it is not superior in quality and ease of use. Google Hangouts is awesome and I’d argue that even Skype (while it may not have the ease of use) is better in the quality department than FT as well.

          • Andrew T Roach

            Nope. FaceTime on a new device sh*ts on Hangouts. I’ve used both extensively on new devices. It’s no contest.

          • Marcus Ray

          • Marcus Ray

            Um……okay? Is there a point in that statement? You should be grateful that Google keeps their app suite on your OS. Remember when Apple removed Maps? I thought ios users were going to revolt……especially when Apple Maps still suck. I used to be brainwashed like you but I’ve been enlightened to the truth. Android is just a better OS with more customization and ios, without Jobs, is no longer innovative. Heck, you can argue if they ever really were innovative since they still everything from Android. Go do your research. If you have any questions, I can tell you the entire story of how these operating systems received their starts….

          • You do know that Hangouts is available on iOS.

        • Higa

          Wow, you have very detail info. After reading your comments, I still think that Android is better than Apple. Meh~

        • Hellz

          ill ignore your personal thoughts and lack of knowledge about widgets, messaging, display and camera of both phones and stick to facts you provided in your comment. i have samsung s4. for me, s health does exactly what i need. keeps track of what i eat and how much i work out. knox does what its supposed to do, keeps your personal things locked on your phone so no one can access it except you even if your phone is stolen, rooted or if anyone tries to get to your data with any hardware or software hack. you are wrong about samsung rushing things. they also release their products on yearly basis, every year at the same time. x64 architecture is made in1961 (this decade started in 2011). apple uses that architecture in their phones but it does not give them any advantage because they refuse to use its full potential like in multitasking or more RAM addressing, other uses you dont need in your phone. touch ID is useful but i would use it only to unlock my phone. iBeacon is useful only in US. other parts of the world dont live off fast food and when we go out for coffee we sit in a coffee place( which is equal to your pub in most parts of the world and drink espresso coffee not some instant mixed crap with million flavors in it, so there is no place to use it except for advertising and i think we have enough ways of advertising as it is.
          And now for the things apple STILL doesnt have. Easy way to share files with any other device, way of customizing user experience other than a different keyboard, standard charging port,which will change in 2017 atleast in EU, expendable memory and changeable default apps just to name a few. oh also i have friend that used iphone for 4 years and it inexplicably ate hit data plan at a rate of 3-4 times faster than his new HTC M8

        • And yet, android features often fall flat in practice….

          Just a few examples…

          Widgets that eat battery.

          – Some of them do, most of them don’t. And still the average Android flagship outlasts an iPhone, even with battery eating widgets

          iMessage that is light years superior to anything Android has now.

          – Nope it isn’t, Hangouts is really as good, whatsapp even better than iMessage.

          FaceTime that is superior in quality (and ease of use) than any Android apps.

          – Nope, Skype and Hangouts are better

          500000ppi screens that have shitty outside viewing, poor colors, and eats battery for lunch.

          – In several tests, most smartphones come really close when it comes to outside viewing and color saturation and gamut. And the reason they eat battery! Bigger screens and still they outlast an iPhone

          2000 MP cameras that can’t beat a year old camera on the 5s.

          – Mosts tests they can, even the newer 6 and 6 plus. But true, it aint all about MP’s

          S Health that gets about zero support from medical community.

          – But what about Android Health? And so far Apple doesnt get it either

          Vault thingy that gets zero support from business community.

          – Not true, for instance Airwatch mobile manager (which we use at work) has better support for Samsung Knox than Apple.

          You are right about keyboards. Remember, unlike Samsung and other Android OEMs (that always try to beat Apple to the punch), Apple has their annual announcements same time every year. It is not that Samsung beats Apple with phase detection (for example); it is that apple introduces it same time every year. It is Samsung that RUSHES out the door features that are half-baked (or half-assed); you guys know this more than me by now!

          – True, although Apple rushed out iOS 7 with all the major bugs

          You know…it is sometimes better to be late to the party…but you get it right. TouchID that actually works well. iBeacon that is still not avail on Android. Display that actually works out in the sun or gives realistic colors. A processor that based on an architecture that actually is made in this decade.

          – iBeacon does work on Android, since it only needs LBE. And they do have a display that works in the sun and gives realistic colors, just depends on the settings. And phone screens aren’t always about realistic colors.

          I see that you did not mention processor in your argument…kinda important, no? While Android is clamoring for the FIRST generation of generic ARMv8 processor, Apple is already on their 2nd gen CUSTOM design ARMv8 chip.

          – And they might be on 2nd Gen Armv8 chipset, bottomline is that all current chipsets are almost equally in speed.

          • tiger

            Hangouts…can you see video that you took outside the app? No. On iMessage, i can send up to 90 seconds of ANY VIDEO taken by any app!!!!! Hangout can ONLY take 10 seconds video thru Hangout app ONLY. In other words, if you took a video thru your stock camera app, then you canNOT send it!!! WTF?! The ONLY way to send video is to use the Hangout app FIRST, take video, then send it…BUT it has to be less than 10 seconds worth of video! That’s horrible.

            iMessage is super fast, almost real time. And now, you can send AUDIO MESSAGE with your own voice. No more need for dictating a message and then checking to see if your phone heard it right. Just send your voice instantly!

            Average Android handset better battery? No. Look it up.

            FaceTime connection is faster, more reliable.

            Outside viewing? Actually, no. The ONLY ones that are good: Samsung latest AMOLED and HTC. That’s about it.

            No, Android camera sucks. No debate on this. Only the S5 is able to match my 5s, which is ONE YEAR old. And of course, the 6/6+ kills all.

            S Health has no support. Apple Health kit is being supported by major MEDICAL companies and hospitals.

            In schools, businesses, airports, medical…do you see Android? No.

            Aren’t there bugs in every release on iOS and Android? Are you saying that Ice Cream Sandwich was bug free? Or Kit Kat?

            iBeacon is for Apple. Android will come out with their own…called Nearby…in the future.

            As for ARMv8…note that Apple is custom design, able to do 6 instructions at one time. Even the latest generic ARMv8 chip from Qualcomm (810 etc) can only do 3 instructions…because it is based on the old generic design.

            READ UP. EDUCATE YOURSELF. Be what Androids have been saying all this time…Androids are the tech folks…show me that it is not just hype.

          • Hangouts…can you see video that you took outside the app? No. On iMessage, i can send up to 90 seconds of ANY VIDEO taken by any app!!!!! Hangout can ONLY take

            Like I said, whatsapp is superior to iMessage, yet you seem to cling to Hangouts. Everything iMessage does, whatsapp can do too, but cross platform and doesn’t give you shit when you move to another platform. Also iMessage is terrible to use when going on holiday, not fast at all not compared to Whatsapp or Hangouts

            Average Android handset better battery? No. Look it up.
            Yes look it up

            FaceTime connection is faster, more reliable.
            No it is not

            Outside viewing? Actually, no. The ONLY ones that are good: Samsung latest AMOLED and HTC. That’s about it.
            I rest my case, thanks for helping me on this one

            No, Android camera sucks. No debate on this. Only the S5 is able to match my 5s, which is ONE YEAR old. And of course, the 6/6+ kills all.
            Wins by a small difference, won’t be long before they are beaten again. S5 has a slighty better camera to the 5S

            S Health has no support. Apple Health kit is being supported by major MEDICAL companies and hospitals.
            Outside USA? Nope

            In schools, businesses, airports, medical…do you see Android? No.
            Yes I do, in the rest of the world, there is more than USA you know

            Aren’t there bugs in every release on iOS and Android? Are you saying that Ice Cream Sandwich was bug free? Or Kit Kat?
            Bugfree? No, but the same amount of bugs as iOS. Even iOS 8 is one bug fest

            iBeacon is for Apple. Android will come out with their own…called Nearby…in the future.
            Since iBeacon works on LBE, Android phones are supported,just depends on the app.

            As for ARMv8…note that Apple is custom design, able to do 6 instructions at one time. Even the latest generic ARMv8 chip from Qualcomm (810 etc) can only do 3 instructions…because it is based on the old generic design.
            Yet the Nivida K1 Denver kicks the A8 in the but and has 7 instructions at one time

            READ UP. EDUCATE YOURSELF. Be what Androids have been saying all this time…Androids are the tech folks…show me that it is not just hype.
            No need, since clearly you’re not that techie yourself

            Whatsapp can only send 10-15 sec videos! Don’t lie dude. In addition, the app is as slow as traditional texting. Seriously?!

            Iphone camera beaten again?! Hell, Samsung S5 did not even beat a year old iPhone 5s!!! Lol. Was that a joke by you? Or were you serious?

            Actually since Mayo Clinic, EPIC, etc support Apple Health, it will become international soon enough. The world is watching.

            Show me an international business using Android exclusively??? Don’t put your foot in mouth at this time!

            IBeacon works with Apple. Google is developing their own software, called Nearby. Unfortunately, iBeacon is being adopted everywhere. Nearby will lag support.

            Show me an Android app supporting ibeacon.

            K1 Denver is nice. Now show me a phone that has it. Has it even come out yet on tablet??? I know that the 32-bit one came out on Nvidia tab, which is inferior to A7/8.

            You think Denver will be in a Samsung or HTC? Nope.

            See? Your ignorance is profound.

            Anything else kid? I am wasting my time respondinf to you here.

          • traditional texting. Seriously?!

            Perhaps it’s slow on your device. And I can send an entire movie using hangouts, so dont talk bullshit.

            Iphone camera beaten again?! Hell, Samsung S5 did not even beat a year old iPhone 5s!!! Lol. Was that a joke by you? Or were you serious?

            Yes it did, perhaps you are blinded by your Apple love obviously.

            Actually since Mayo Clinic, EPIC, etc support Apple Health, it will become international soon enough. The world is watching.

            And primarily judging, in my country the privacy guard dog is trying to forbid it.

            Show me an international business using Android exclusively??? Don’t put your foot in mouth at this time!

            Not exclusively, but Toyota Material Handling is switching over to Android. Show me an international business using iOS exclusively

            IBeacon works with Apple. Google is developing their own software, called Nearby. Unfortunately, iBeacon is being adopted everywhere. Nearby will lag support

            Show me an Android app supporting ibeacon.

            Here is proof that Android does support iBeacon: http://www.businessinsider.com/faq-beacons-and-apples-ibeacon-system-2014-7

            Also an article how iBeacons doesnt take off: http://www.businessweek.com/articles/2014-08-28/apples-ibeacon-retail-stores-make-little-use-of-it-so-far

            K1 Denver is nice. Now show me a phone that has it. Has it even come out yet on tablet??? I know that the 32-bit one came out on Nvidia tab, which is inferior to, A7/8.

            Nexus 8 & 9 will have it, also the 32 bit K1 is still faster than the A8. And K1 Denver is more than nice, it’s a lot faster than the A8, even considering the benchmarks were run on a 32 bit android OS

            You think Denver will be in a Samsung or HTC? Nope.

            See? Your ignorance is profound.

            There you go again…lying thru your teeth!

            Hangouts limits video (only taken thru Hangout) to 10 seconds. FACT. Horrible liar.

            Blinded…google this: DPReview CONNECT. Go to that site, which is an unbias camera-specific website. Very informative.

            What country are you from? Really, they are “forbidding” Apple health?

            Toyota Material Handling still showing iOS and Android.

            Link: http://www.geekwire.com/2014/apple-joins-ibm-massive-enterprise-push/

            According to Apple, 98 percent of the Fortune 500 and 92 percent of the Global
            500 use iOS devices in their business.

            iBeacon: .
            Only iOS 7 devices constantly scan for BLE and wake up relevant
            apps — even if they are closed — when they come within range of a beacon.
            iPhones and iPads can do this thanks to Apple’s iBeacon protocol (more on that
            below). Android devices, on the other hand, do not have a beacon system of this
            type at the operating-system level. Android apps must therefore scan for BLE, meaning that for
            Android users to interact with beacons, they have to have the app running on
            their phone, at least in the background. Beacon scanning at the app level
            means there is more of a battery drain for Android users.

            Hmmm, does not seem very good on Android end.

            Again, show me an app.

            Macy, Lord & Taylor, MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL…and this: “We have half of Fortune 500 developing with us,” says Steve Cheney, a senior vice president at startup Estimote, which designs hardware and software to work with iBeacon.

            Not too shabby for something that was introduced a year ago.

            Oh wait…has Nexus 8 or 9 come out??? Where can i buy one?

            No, K1 32 is NOT faster than A7/8.

            What phone do you have?

          • There you go again…lying thru your teeth!
            Hangouts limits video (only taken thru Hangout) to 10 seconds. FACT. Horrible liar.
            * Since you can share to hangouts from any app, any file, it doesn’t limit the 10 seconds. You can not even add a video taken thru hangouts.

            What country are you from? Really, they are “forbidding” Apple health?
            * Netherlands and yes, the privacy concerns are a big issue, although one hospital thinks they shouldn’t worry, but there is still a debate going on if they should allow it, especially after the iCloud fiasco, they are wondering if it’s safe enough.

            Toyota Material Handling still showing iOS and Android.
            * Yes, like I said they are in the process of phasing out iOS in favor of Android. Mainly because Android is a lot easier to manage using Airwatch. And iOS gives a lot of problems with internal websites. I should know, since I work there. Dunno what the link about IBM and Apple has to do with Toyota

            According to Apple, 98 percent of the Fortune 500 and 92 percent of the Global 500 use iOS devices in their business.

          • tiger

            So, you have to share thru a 3rd party? No, what if i want a video i took with my Samsung phone camera…and share it to another person? Why going thru a 3rd party? iMessage does NOT have this limitation.

            DxO is one part of the story. This is why S5 may beat 5s in DxO, but fails in real world. THis is why Z3 may have great DxO but sucks when you actually take the picture. This is why Sony DSLR or mirror/less camera has higher DxO than my brother’s Canon full frame, but obviously, this is not the case. You as a PHOTOGRAPHER should know this…or are you just pretending to be ignorant??????? Hahaha…gotcha!

            Bullshit about Netherlands. Dude, don’t lie again.

            Ok…Apple lie…how about this from above: “We have half of Fortune 500 developing with us,” says Steve Cheney, a senior vice president at startup Estimote, which designs hardware and software to work with iBeacon.

            Well, iBeacon is with Apple…so at least 50% of Fortune 500 is using Apple…and why would they be developing if Apple was not exclusive, right? ???? Think. This is not from Apple…so, there you go. Ouch.

            K1 32-bit…check Geekbench 3 or any of the CPU benchmarks. A7/A8 beats the crap out of it.

            BUT, since your brought up that link…notice that you’re pitting a LENOVO THINKVISION vs a puny iPhone 5s. LOL. Do you know why this is significant???? THINK dude.

            Like i said…if you’re gonna discuss, then do it fairly. You are lying thru your teeth to make an argument…esp the photography thing about DxO. Any ignorant photographer would know that DxO is like a benchmark…good in isolation, but near worthless in real life or in how you interface with it.

            It would be fine IF you provided some fair argument…instead you use smoke and ignorance to make an argument. That is pure FAIL.

          • So, you have to share thru a 3rd party? No, what if i want a video i took with my Samsung phone camera…and share it to another person? Why going thru a 3rd party? iMessage does NOT have this limitation.

            But iMessage has limitations on what to send, I can send zip files, avi’s, word documents, excel documents, can iMessage do that?

            Once again K1 32bit kicks A7, not A8 K1 Denver kicks A8. You forget that it’s more than just CPU, GPU comes into play too. Or are you that ignorant

            Ahh..i can use any 3rd party to send anything i want. The point is with iMessage, i can send pics and videos of extraordinary size VERY QUICKILY. Text messages are almost in real-time. It is THAT fast. Now, i can send audio too…so, no need to dictate while driving.

            DPReview…uhhh, you may want to do research into that. DPReview is AUTHORITATIVE. Just like CameraLabs, except CameraLabs don’t do mobile.

            Ok, show me this GREAT DEBATE Netherlands are having…show me.

            Ahhh, so, now everyone who talks good about Apple is a liar…i see your logic…funny.

            So, you think that Apple CEO would blatantly lie that 90+% of Fortune companies use Apple? You’re saying that it is actually 5%, but he exaggerated to 90%?

            In mobile, you rarely use more than 1 core at any single time…and if you do, it is easily manageable with 2 cores. This is not XBox 360 or Play 4. This is why single-core scores are so important…because it shows how advance the core design is.

            But, again, how many PHONES will have Denver or any K1 version for that matter???? ZERO. And we’re talking THEORY here.

            Yes, it DOES matter dumb dumb. Heat sink. Lenova is a full size 28″ whatever it is…HUGE heatsink!! Why do you think an iPad outperforms an iPhone with the same chip? Why do you think your Nexus 5 has to be in a freezer to get high scores? While a tablet with S800 does not?

            See…this is why i love ignorant Phandroids like yourself…you get caught with your pants down every single turn! A photographer who does not know DPreview and treat DxO as the holy grail. A guy who thinks 28″ tablet or something is same as iPhone 5s. That’s just dumb.

            Again, open your eyes and brain…educate yourself.

            Like I said before, I take photos out of hobby and not into all the ins and outs. Just seen a couple of site tests where the S5 came out better than the 5S.

            Ahhh, so, now everyone who talks good about Apple is a liar…i see your logic…funny.

            No but giving Apple as a credential nor a firm that develops for them is hardly an unbiased reference.

            So, you think that Apple CEO would blatantly lie that 90+% of Fortune companies use Apple? You’re saying that it is actually 5%, but he exaggerated to 90%?

            Where do I say it’s 5%? You are twisting words in your own benefits. I am saying that an Apple CEO is hardly a unbiased source and that there is no proof of all those companies using iOS exclusively.

            In mobile, you rarely use more than 1 core at any single time…and if you do, it is easily manageable with 2 cores. This is not XBox 360 or Play 4. This is why single-core scores are so important…because it shows how advance the core design is.

            In several tests, geekbench, antatu, graphics tests, the iPad Air (A7) is outrun by the Nvidia Shield (K1)

            But, again, how many PHONES will have Denver or any K1 version for that matter???? ZERO. And we’re talking THEORY here.

            Phones will come in the future, tablets there are already K1 versions. And not just 28″ ones

            Yes, it DOES matter dumb dumb. Heat sink. Lenova is a full size 28″ whatever it is…HUGE heatsink!! Why do you think an iPad outperforms an iPhone with the same chip? Why do you think your Nexus 5 has to be in a freezer to get high scores? While a tablet with S800 does not?

            Even tests between an Apple Air tablet and a Shield tablet, the K1 is clearly a winner

            See…this is why i love ignorant Phandroids like yourself…you get caught with your pants down every single turn! A photographer who does not know DPreview and treat DxO as the holy grail. A guy who thinks 28″ tablet or something is same as iPhone 5s. That’s just dumb.

            Again, open your eyes and brain…educate yourself.

            I don’t treat the DxO as the holy grail, just one of many sites that think S5 is better than 5S and not biased

          • tiger

            Can it send 3 minute videos?? No? Then, why are you still debating? And no, 6-10 seconds is NOT the same as 3 minutes.

            Yeah, there is debate about Health and privacy here too…but, Duke, Mayo, etc are going forward with it. People will panic with something that they do not understand. BTW, these hospital systems are top notch in the world.

            Outrun? Define that. Obviously, you cannot because you equate 28″ big ass computer as being equivalent to iPhone 5s (or even ipad).

            Hey LET US BET. Paypal. Within next 6 months, you will NOT see any phone from major players (HTC, Samsung, Sony, LG) with K1 Denver. NONE. From now to MARCH. $50. If a phone from these companies come out with K1 Denver, then i will personally deposit $50 into your Paypal account.

            IF none, then YOU pay me $50. Hey, easy money on your end, right? Lets bet.

          • is4u2p

            It has nothing to do with heatsink dumbass… It is a power consumption thing! A plugged in device can run the chip towards Mac capabilities where as the smaller battery powered device cannot.

            This is like saying the iPhone cannot run the SoC at peak performance when, it clearly scan and it can do so until the battery dies.

          • tiger

            Heatsink has nothing to do with it? Really? Are you dumb or just born that way?

          • tiger

            BTW, it is pretty funny…after finding out that i was 100% true about Hangouts, you accuse me of focusing on Hangouts…then you talk about Whatsapp, but when i exposed your blatant lie, you went back to focusing on Hangouts. LOL. The classic response of an ignorant phandroid “techie”.

          • Whatsapp can send a max of 16MB video, not sure how long that is, but surely longer than 15 seconds. Also had to check something on hangouts before I could make a statement of sending any files you could want. And that last sentence, typical reaction of an ignorant apple fan.

          • tiger

            FYI…16MB video is about…….ready? 6-10 seconds.

          • More like 30 seconds depending on the quality. A genuine question, what compression does Apple use when shooting this vids to send?

          • tiger

            Not sure, but very good on the other end.

          • is4u2p

            Depends on the resolution.

          • tiger

            BTW, i was wrong…people are sending 2-3 minutes video via iMessage…i have never tried that big, but i know that i have send 1:30 min videos with ease…and quick too!

            What resolution are these videos?

            Plenty good…very clear.

          • is4u2p

            Are you high…

            DXO is a calibrated test of the sensor and lens and how well they’re paired… DPReview is some guy eyeballing a chart and proclaiming one is better.

            As for Canon Full Frame vs Sony Mirrorless… This is entirely plausible given the fact that Sony’s sensors supassed Cannon’s Sensors about 6 or 7 years ago and if paired with the right lens it certainly could be better than the full frame Canon.

            Oh and many of the highend Canon bodies cost so much due to features not related to the sensor but, you would know that if you were really that knowledgeable about cameras.

          • tiger

            Yeah, ok…keep telling yourself that…i have a sony and my brother has 5d…trust me, DxO or not, not even close.

          • is4u2p

            Maybe because you have no idea what you’re doing with the camera!

            I’ve been an enthusiast photographer for years and believe me, you can get a great picture from any DSLR but, the DXO is still a measure of how good the lens works with the sensor.

            Also, DXO will accurately measure noise and PF or CA where as eyeballing it and assigning an arbitrary number just doesn’t quite have the same scientific approach.

          • is4u2p

            Here you go… You obviously have this stuck in your head…

            http://anandtech.com/show/8554/the-iphone-6-review/6

            Look at the benchmarks and remember the A8 is a system on a chip so You have to consider CPU and GPU.

            The A8 is only better at web based things.

            And you can buy the shield tablet at several different stores. It was actually out before the iPhone 6.

          • is4u2p

            I know, he’s ignoring the K1 benchmarks in the anandtech iPhone 6 reviews!

            In some areas, the iPhones weren’t even Damn close and that was a 32 bit SoC!.

          • Krasimir Argirov

            That’s why Apple paid couple of billions to have Watsapp…

          • is4u2p

            Actually the S5 did beat the 5s and the DXO optics tests proved that. DPReview tests are subject and DXO is measured by machine.

            Until the iPhone 6 came out, the S5 was king.

          • tiger

            DxO is a measure of sensor and lens. That’s it. Software, processing, etc. makes up for a lot. Just like “Physics” test that you keep referring to. Means nothing.

            Did you know that my shitty Sony camera has DxO higher than my brother’s Canon 5d? Do you which one is better in real life?

            Hangouts can have a video chat between 9 people on a mobile phone and even more on the desktop…

            Can FaceTime do that?

          • tiger

            Can Hangouts sent video of more than 10 seconds to other recipients?

            iMessage can send videos of over 2 min to recipients in a flash.

            Reality Bites !! The iPhone’s resale value holds as high as 80% after a year.

            android samsung?? nahhh… buy a samsung in the morning (full Price) if you sell it in the afternoon.. its value is equivalent to a primary school calculator.

            no class, no character, no value….and the customer service and repair time frame is horrible……..

          • Krasimir Argirov

            Overpriced stuff always get “value for money”, but really…
            Second hand Dolce&Gabanna jeans cost more than brand new Levis.
            Do you get a second hand ones..?

            That’s not value for money, that’s just stupidity of modern society – they pay more for a brand than less for the quality without designer’s mark on it.
            Everyone decide for himself, no wrong in that respect, so please don’t trying to convince us.

            Ps: far from Samsung fan. ;)

          • is4u2p

            80% are you high???

            The 5s could be had for under $300 when the 6 was announced.

            That’s not 80% regardless of the math you use!

        • DadOfGod

          Ignorance of a typical iFan

        • is4u2p

          What???

          I message??? Have you seen Hangouts? Yeah you don’t have to choose which friend you want to video chat with as you can video conference with 8 at once.

          SMS, Google Voice, and IM are all integrated into Hangouts, does I message actually have VOIP calling built in?

          As for screens… Sorry but, 2009 called and they want their comments back. Samsung Amoled is notnow the most color accurate display on any phone.

          LG’s G3 display also trumps what Apple has to offer even in their 6+.

          As for cameras, laser focus trumps phase detection for speed and lowlight… LG has it and Apple does not!

          Apple’s 8 MP camera is also incredibly soft and lacks the detail of other smartphone cameras. They make up for this with features but, don’t kid yourself into thinking it is better, it simply is not.

          As for health, ever heard of fitbit? Yeah, teams with your phone and has industry support… Having all this in a phone is a waste as it companies like LG put it in the watch and fitbit built a band (Apple has it integrated between the watch and phone).

          Now how about that Touch ID… Sufficiently bypassed with a fingerprint removed from the back of the phone within 30 minutes but, your dumbass thinks it is great and will even store bank account or credit card info in the phone. Sorry but, doesn’t matter how it works if it isn’t secure enough for the job.

          As for you, all you know is Apple and that’s why you’re clueless as to how much better many of these other phones are in most ways.

      • Andrew

        Android is claiming Whatsapp now? A third party implement to something android lacked, with apple closing that gap?

        • ThunderCrackR

          No, Whatsapp is Facebook property, but this is not an excuse for Apple to do this thing: to copy!

          • jay

            android is a copy of iOS. I would keep my mouth shut if I were you.

          • ThunderCrackR

            Yeah? Tell me more! How is that? Did Apple invent a background with icons on it? No, it was Xerox PARC. So, how is that? Let’s see who copied who. Who was the first with a notification center? Android. Who was the first with a voice assistant, through Voice Actions? Android. Who was the first with widgets? Android. Who was the first with Extended and Actionable notifications? Android. Who was the first with customatizable keyboard, with predictive keyboards, with interactions between apps, with multitasking panels, with battery status, with Direct call (you raise the phone next to the ear to talk, it was introduced on the S3 -an Android phone- and now it is also available on the iOS 8), with hotwords (if you do not know what that is, is that Hi Siri you could use in iOS 8 to wake up Siri, just like S Voice and Google Now did years ago), with NFC or with Health packages (remember S Health?). And there are so many moooore things. What Apple really “invented”? Multi touch (no, it was the DiamondTouch from Mitsubishi around 10 years before), swipe to unlock (no, it was the Neonode N1m), gear settings and green dial icons -as they even patended those- (no, that was Sony Ericsson), a special smartphone (check the Samsung SGH Z610, with a 3.5inchi capacitive display, 5MP main camera, secundary camera and a round home button, it was released a whole year before the first iPhone), a computer with an intuitive UI and a mouse (no, that was Xerox PARC)? Even iPhone 4 design si made by Sony. Maybe those pictures could make it cleaner for you. Now get out of here and keep YOUR mouth shut if you do not know even some elementary things about your prefered company, iSheep!

    • kureno

      Kinda silly how the 4.7″ iPhone 6 version have higher benchmark score than any other released smartphone.

    • I agree with you,but the thing that’s bothering me is,I have an apple ipod 5g(mediocre specs compared with many mid range smartphones) ,but it doesn’t lag that much hen it comes to apps such as Real racing 3 and other good apps however i have seen that mid range android mobiles with better specs sometimes lag at these apps,
      how does apple manage it?

      • jay

        Apple integrates hardware and software so they can do more with less specs.

        architecture is far more important that specs on paper.

        specs are just numbers thrown around by insecure companies.

        • Then why does a Denver K1 64bit outrun an Apple A8 on Android 32bit?
          True, architecture is more important than cores, ghz and ram.
          Apple throws around specs as well, just different ones. Also insecure?

    I think Apple were already ahead anyway.

    • Nathan Borup

      ignorant iSheep… BAN HIM! ;)

      • mrochester

        Not ignorant, just my opinion. I don’t think Android is as good as iOS.

        • Kevin Kuo

          Give the Nexus 5 with KitKat a try. You’ll be in for a treat.

          • mrochester

            Had one, and it went back to Google for a refund as I didn’t think it was very good.

          • Kevin Kuo

            Why?

          • mrochester

            Android just doesn’t feel right, or feel polished or responsive enough in comparison to iOS. Things like typing or web browsing on Android, no matter what keyboard or web browser I use, just don’t work as well as I am used to on iOS. And typing and web browsing are by far the two biggest things I use my smartphone for, so they need to be the best I can get. There are many other reasons here and there too.

            But, I’m an open minded kinda person, and I test and evaluate devices from all three of the major smartphone platforms so that I form a balanced opinion on these matters.

          • Kevin Kuo

            I guess iOS is just the OS best suited for you then.

          • mrochester

            It sure is, hence I said that I think iOS is already ahead of Android, so the question being asked doesn’t make sense to me!

          • Kevin Kuo

            Interestingly, your explanation didn’t make much sense to me either. I just couldn’t stand Safari and the keyboard on the iPhone. They just feel slow to me and aren’t as robust/mature as their counter parts on Android.

          • mrochester

            I’m entirely the opposite and wonder how people stand to use the stuff you get/can get on Android when iOS is available!

          • eddy4690

            If you think Android is behind apple then why are you here? From my experience Android is ahead of apple heck it took apple years to punch out a bigger screen and what they did today is a sign that they admit they were wrong. They are still playing catch up. Android>IOS all day everyday. :p

          • mrochester

            Why shouldn’t I be here? Android Authority isn’t a religious hangout for only the believers. Everyone is welcome here :) .

          • kg2105

            Because you are just coming to troll. I think Apple makes crappy products then overhypes them and sells them at a ridiculous price. Do I go to Apple blogs/forums and tell them that over and over? No, I leave them alone and most of them have the good sense to leave us alone so we can each enjoy what we like. You are just coming here because you like the attention and want to annoy people as much as you can. If you really just wanted to say you like Apple and not piss people off, you would have just posted once.

          • mrochester

            I’m afraid I don’t see things as black and white like you. It’s not ‘us vs them’, it’s all technology to me. This is a discussion forum, the intention is to discuss things. The discussion in this case is the premise of the whole article about the idea of Apple catching up. There is no discussion if everyone just agrees with one another.

            I’m sorry if it pisses you off that I continue to post. You might want to step away from this discussion if you don’t like that.

          • Kevin Kuo

            Hey, have the Android spirit. Be open to everyone’s opinions. Also, he’s expressing his opinions in a respectful manner.

          • mrochester

            Exactly. Thank you! I can’t stand closed minded, arrogant people.

            Same here.

            He is here because this is a tech site and they have article about iphone! Who the fuck are you to ask him or to allow him to be here or not

          • Kevin Kuo

            Hahaha. I’m the complete opposite with you here again. I question why people would want to use iOS when Android is the more mature OS of the two.

          • mrochester

            Yep, we couldn’t be more opposite, my thoughts exactly again!

          • Kevin Kuo

            Well, despite opposite views on tech, I’m glad we share the same views on life. Which is more important.

          • mrochester

            Absolutely. I’m just a lover of tech. And a rising tide lifts all boats, as they say.

          • Kevin Kuo

            I absolutely agree. Tech for life.

          • KIR

            Slow? Are you serious or you just lie to bring an argument ? I will agree that browsing the web on ios is a lot better ,android has tweaks ,i agree , you can customize it as you wish ,i agree and the reason i like the android is exactly this,but man , browsing a web ,it is a lot faster on iphones ,apps look always better on iphones , games are always better in performance , i dont know you if you use both systems ,but i use all three ,ios ,android,wp ,as about performance and smoothness it will go ,ios and wp together and second comes android , wp is the platform that performs perfect as ios do !!! Android with kitkat became great ,but if you use both you will see the differences always !

          • Kevin Kuo

            Why do you instinctively attack people personally in a agreement? Come on, stop being so radical.
            I own all three platforms, and I agree iOS and WP preform relatively well for their specs. On Android, while surfing the web, I can flick down and I can be at the bottom of the page, but iOS requires multiple swipes. “Apps always looks better on iPhones” Seeing this, you haven’t spent much time on Android. There are a lot of high quality apps on Android. Also, it wouldn’t make sense for developers to implement two drastically different designs for the same app on two different platforms. So, that comment does not make sense. By the way, I own a Nexus.

          • KIR

            If i somewhere came with insults i apologize ,it was not my intention , i use all three of them too ,i own an moto g device ,yes it is low spec android device but still for it money it is the best smartphone you can buy and it can do anything ! Thats why i like android ,you can own a smartphone with low prices ,but i will not ahree with you about apps ,yes some apps are almost same ,but lets take facebook app,it is better on ios ,ebay app, viber app, whatsapp app,kik app , twitter app ,almost all social apps are better the only that it is the same is instagramm! The games ,all simple games are just better on ios !

          • Kevin Kuo

            Well I wouldn’t be so sure about Facebook. Its UI is web based and the Android version is just the iOS version with its toolbars flipped. Unless if your using a table, then Facebook is an abomination. As for games. The same game on both platform looks the same to me.

          • KIR

            Try to play san andreas on both devices and you will see that on iphone the fps is higher and almost always stable !

          • Kevin Kuo

            Well if you use a Nexus 5 or a flagship Android phone . I don’t think that would be the case.

          • #androidftw

            Noo I tried on both an iPhone 5s and an HTC one m8 and the m8 has way better frames
            .

          • Nathan Borup

            ha ha that is what every iFan says when asked “Why do you not like Android?” It’s obvious that you actually didn’t detect anything, so you just throw out “It was laggy and doesn’t work as well”. No factual evidence. Android runs at a constant 60 fps… the same as Apple. If you’re going to come to Android forums to troll, use some factual evidence and you might actually have an argument we might believe

          • KIR

            If android runs at 60 frames ,why even the note 3 and i am sure the note 4 are so laggy ????? They lag as hell you cant deny it !

          • Nathan Borup

            That’s because of touchwiz. No fault of android

          • Nathan Borup

            I don’t deny that any samsung phone is laggy, but it’s no fault of android… it is touchwiz that causes that

          • KIR

            So you just proved me how shity samsung is ,because they lag one great o.s with their bloatwares ! Then stop talking about samsung ! I used a nexus 5 kit kat,i was impressed i can say ,but still ,it was there but not at ios levels yet ,maybe it will catch up i dont deny it ,but till today ios win ps at that level

          • Nathan Borup

            WHERE DID I EVER SAY SAMSUNG WAS GOOD??? oh that’s right, i didn’t. I said Android is much better… Nexus, Moto, LG, and HTC are much better than any apple phone. Samsung however sucks… Period

          • it runs on 60fps constantly with occasional dropped frame depending on the hardware

            *fixed*

          • Nathan Borup

            Yeah, which if you have a modern android phone IE OG Moto X, Nexus 5, Nexus 7, etc. you won’t have issues. But yeah if you’re comparing this to the samsung stellar running jelly bean of course it’s going to have dropped frames because the hardware can’t handle it. It’s like trying to run iOS 8 on the iPhone 3GS

          • Malhar Nagori

            I agree that (for now) ios does seem more fluid and more responsive…
            But android is extremely customisable… Which gives it a big advantage…
            Plus, android L is gonna be really smooth… Just wait till it catches up

          • Nathan Borup

            Actually Android is just as fluid. Ever since Jelly bean Android has enforced 60 fps… which is the same that iOS has. Find a better argument than “fluidity”

          • Evan

            I take it you haven’t used android in the last few months. Personally, I have an awful phone – iPhone 4 specs (almost exactly). But by changing the app runtime from the old DALVIK VM to ART (KitKat only feature), I have seen about 200-300% gain in performance. Especially in web browsing and typing. Lag and touch latency is so low its basically nonexistent.

            I suggest you at least try a nexus device in a store once the android L release is out (the release which really brings all the performance improvements), and you may change your mind.

            Cheers

            Yeah that’s it, I’m totally just so old I can’t figure it out! I like icons all over my screen. That’s precisely what I want (and the way both my iOS and Android devices look). It’s the best and quickest way to getting to the apps and functions I want.

            No contract required, took the AT&T SIM card out of my Note 3 popped it into the OnePlus. Works flawlessly…

          • KIR

            It is there ,but still poor performance comparing with ios ,iphone 5s!

          • Kevin Kuo

            It depends on how you define performance. Its performance based on benchmarks is only a tiny bit behind the 5s (can be considered within margin of error). Not to mention is has a much larger display (1080p). It’s performance is about to increase significantly once Android L is released, due to ART. Assuming Google’s numbers are accurate.

          Android is good , the OEM (Samsung,HTC) make it worse – in my opinion . I think that android should be make by google and very small modifications by others . But from other point of view i love android because it is smart and i can do a bunch with it . I don’t like my rom , no problem i have 20 diferent ones i can use especially CM so that OS is better the answear is yes and no . In truth android is made to work with “dumb” people and to be a great OS for geeks .

          • mrochester

            I just don’t have the inclination to do that sort of thing with my phone. I grew up in the generation where you did that sort of thing with your desktop PC as smartphones weren’t really a ‘thing’ back then. I remember dicking on with copies of Windows Whistler back in the day :)

          • David Avila

            What I dislike from Apple is that they sell things like NFC as innovation, when NFC has been around for quite some time, in fact my Xperia Z1 has it (a Year old phone) also, Apple pay? I’ve used Google Wallet for a long time (2011, to be exact) so what is the deal? where is the innovation? Apple Watch? Pebble, Smartwatch 1-3, Galaxy Gear, etc…. and go figure, Apple sues Samsung, Google, and everyone else for “copying”, ironic isn’t it?

          Despite rumors and predictions to the contrary, Apple did not revolutionize the smart watch “industry”. This is still a device that cannot function on its own. The only company pushing forward with a watch that could be used without a connection to a phone seems to be Samsung; and they are not doing it very well. It will be several years before the smart watch industry catches on.

          You may see a few of these devices in the wild but I don’t think they will be very popular with most people.

        • B. Alex

          There is a saying : If you polish a turd , it is still a turd . Not making the apple watch a turd but there are better watches then that . Not to mention that they were working on it for the past 2 years so , really , not impressed :D

        Why would I want wireless charging? It’s slow and makes the phone uglier and thicker. Water resistance is a marketing gimmick thought up by Sammy when a 5s resists more water than an S5 Active, IR blasters are oooooh so high tech, more like welcome to the 19th century, multi-user support for cheapskates who can’t afford to buy their 2 month old a brand new iPhone 6 Plus, split screen apps-iOS 9, app installs from browser-just tell the people the truth MALWARE installs from the browser *cough* NSA plug-in *cough*, virtual buttons-I prefer my sapphire crystal, touch responsive, and fingerprint reading buttons thank you very much!

    • Name goes here

      Did they actually mention NFC? I don’t think it was promoted. We only imply NFC from the Apple Pay demo.

      • nilbud

        So instead of using the long established NFC they for once invented something and have gone with that non-standard apple system. No.

      • DavidVarghese

        It’s been confirmed through many news sources, but they made NFC their own, and I’m not sure how (if at all) it’ll react with other Android devices.

    Catching up? Android are the ones that need to catch up, oh wait they can’t since Android is a crappy clunked up operating system.

    People who say Android have been offering it for ages obviously have something up their ass. There’s no pleasing those dumb Android fanboys, Samsung can come up with a brick with a label on it and the Android users will still defend it over anything else.

      • Dessi

        Cancer causes death, joking about it is sick.

        Android’s clunky OS will make it seem like you have half that to be honest.
        The iPhone 6 Plus has a great battery for those who care, they’re two different phones for two different audiences, personally I’m getting a iPhone 6 because the specs and battery is fine for me, though I do wish the iPhone 6 had the higher resolution like the Plus.

        Android needs to sort itself out and be more simple and clean, then its devices will run better… I don’t really like the design of Android either, from a graphics designers perspective I just think IOS looks better and doesn’t have unnecessary options.
        It’s really an opinion thing I guess.

        • Mike Russo

          How can you say from a graphic perspective that IOS looks better? You can completely design every aspect of how your Android looks. Hell I can slap on an IOS looking desktop if I really wanted to. That’s the #1 reason among many why I choose android is customization. You don’t like how it looks stock? Change it! Make it fit your personality, and your needs. Nothing about it has ever been clunky for me, although it does have a learning curve I will give it that. But the fact of the matter is, I can easily google anything I don’t know how to do and the answers are right there.

        I am sorry pal ,but your z1 is a laggy turd , shitty phone ,you souldnt mentioned at all ,

        • B. Alex

          interesting is how you know my phone . Yeah , out of the box , not optimized , not the best . But with latest updates , it is a great phone . Android is not made to use it out of the box , i mean it is good , but not great . That is the difference between iOS and Android . You can customize the android experience and make it better . And i agree that iOS and even windows phone are better then Android at this point (for out of the box experience)- also i had windows phones , iphones so i can make a comparison . But because i enjoy customizing my OS and have more then half a brain i vote android but i cannot say i will not buy another iphone or another windows phone in the future . I enjoy the 3 OS’s but for what i want , Android is ahead .

    • Nathan Borup

      I hate samsung and would never buy a phone that has samsung branding again… yet I love android. The OG Moto X is so much better than this new iPhone anyway.
      What people are saying about Android offering things forever before Apple is true… Android has had mobile nfc payments for at least a year, I know, I’ve been using it. Also the screen size? Really you are going to deny that Android didn’t have larger screen size with better resolution to offer? Every phone i have had for the past 3 years has had a 4.7 inch screen… All of them were Android.
      Basically what I am trying to say is, STOP TROLLING AND GET OFF THE ANDROID FORUMS! You obviously don’t know what you’re talking about

      • Dessi

        I’m not trolling I’m just being honest lol… I question the intelligence of people who would hate something at all costs (just an FYI, I don’t hate Android, I just think Apple is better).

        Personally from my standpoint, I prefer a smaller phone, perhaps now I realise that I’m not other people, and that other people have different tastes however that’s irrelevant now since there is a bigger phone same with the resolution thing.

  • Roberto Tomás

    my thinking on it is:
    pros
    • single core performance — still top dog according to geekbench, but they don’t have a lot of modern processors listed.
    • gpu performance — it’s there but .. this is severely limited by RAM —what good is even an Nvidia 780TI when it is coupled with 1GB of shared system RAM?
    • size, resolution — better, finally
    • wifi, LTE — all caught up!
    cons
    • camera — that 1.5μm is on par with the pureview from lumina isn’t it? that’s bad-ass .. but not having the resolution to record 4k video is a pretty serious limit, and they should have known better. The M8 in the USA is lower, but they also have moved on to 13mp in newer phones, and pretty much no one else, even at mid range, is still on 8mp.
    • water resistance — this is gaining recognition as a must have for phones that you intend to take with you throughout your day
    • ram — how could they? this is really sad. they had the option to compete for mindshare in 2015 with killer gaming. How are they going to break out of bit-bucket gaming when the whole system only has 1GB? And they actually have the gpu to back it up..
    • 16GB, and not standing out — another place they could have distinguished themselves is by getting rid of a 16GB option. Its really not anything to complain about except .. the phones don’t really stand out for anything, and 32GB minimum would have been easy for an already expensive phone

  • Anonymousfella

  • Aki I.

    I laughed while reading the news of these phones on Engadget. Nothing on these phones is news except maybe the processor. But I did see that battery size on the plus and imagined how pleasant that would be if apples battery optimization prowess are to be believed. It could make for a very long lasting phone.

  • Rohan Shankar

    Well, I’m considering a mid-level handset, both Xperia M2 and iPhone have 4.7-4.8 inch screens, 1.4 Ghz dual core processors, and 1GB RAM.

    Guess what? M2 has a dual SIM option.

    • Tjaldid

      There is also Aqua that is waterproof

    • mrjayviper

      lol. I somehow doubt the dual core in the M2 can beat the dual core A8 though. or are you trolling?

      • Rohan Shankar

        Honestly, no it can’t.

        However, considering that the M2 is exactly one-third the price of the iPhone 6, it’s performance isn’t one-third of the iPhone, or even one half of the iPhone 5S.

    • tiger

      You should really learn about tech before posting……………if you think 1.4 GHz dual cores are the same.

      • Guest

        Perhaps I’m oversimplifying the whole thing… one statement and you assume I don’t know technology?

        The point is this: Apple’s 64 bit A8 might perform as well as a 2.1 GHz Snappy, or the 1.7/1.3 big.LITTLE in Samsung’s processors (the previous gen), but no way is it outperforming the top droids (especially if I do what I always do – slap CM on them).

        The point is this: if you compare the “just works” model of iPhone with some of the Android devices coming out today (mid-line, not top draw), you’ll find that they “just work”, too. Take the Moto G (2), Moto X, Xperia M (2), and the Nexus 5.

        There’s absolutely no justification why one would pour another phone’s worth on something that doesn’t offer much more.

      • Rohan Shankar

    “Caught up”? Not at all, no ;-) iOS is still extremely limited (especially in terms of expressing your individuality), only largest iPhone model has OIS for its camera, none of them are completely waterproof, have stereo (or any kind of front-facing) speakers or offer any kind of wireless charging. Not to mention using more widely accepted microUSB connector or any kind of removable storage. These features aren’t really “essential” but are useful for many people and were available for many years on various Android devices ;-) I’m sure Apple will copy some of these too for all their future models, but not this year ;-)

    • TechMad

      Loooved the last line

      Well i wish apple will copy so mthing from android , android by it self is a cheap copy of ios anyway ! So apple gave the operating system ,give something back ! Oh and i see how you all worry about the iphine 6 that will outperform every android high end phone ! Iphone 5s still outperforms every android device ,even the lg g3 ,in speed ,browsing and games ! So you can hate all your lifes you applephobic individuals ,come out from the closet ,lol ,you all love iphines

  • Sere83

    A lot of fantasists in the comments section today. I’m an android head, I own a oneplus but be realistic. The Apple A7 when it was released in the iPhone 5s was equal or better in benchmarks than most of the high end qualcomm chipsets at the time. People forget apple usually include monster GPU’s in their chips and the also only have to optimise for one set of hardware.

    Secondly the camera, again fantasists all over the comments ignoring the facts. The 5S remains a very solid performer camera wise and still crushes most android phones in capture speed and auto focus speed and also in image quality. The 6 will do 48mp panoramas, not seeing many android manufacturers doing that and ACTUALLY IMPLEMENTING IT WELL. Panorma photos are a absolute joke on the one plus, low res, fuzzy, slow, appalling. So many half cooked poorly features in these android manufacturers camera software its ridiculous. Also 240FPS super slo mo, again, which android manufacturers are doing that and doing it well? The sad fact remains weather fantasist fanboys like it or not is apple can implement and optimize their camera software and hardware much better than the majority of android manufacturers and i wouldn’t be surprised if the iPhone 6 again wipes the floor with most high end androdi devices. Take the HTc One m8 a supposed iphone 6 contender, APPALLING camera, literally a joke. It’s not about Mega pixels, some of the autofocus speeds and image quality on high end android phones is really weak. In fact googles native camera app is weak, don’t fool yourself, its severely lacking. The Moto X will almost certainly be a joke camera wise next to the iphone 6, it’s already been panned on the verge for its weak camera.

    Say what you will about apple, im not a buyer of their products either but they pay more attention to imaging and more attention to detail in their products than 95% of android manufacturers. The Apple watch being a perfect example. Looked like an absolute champion of engineering next to the bulky android watches that have been appearing. Android wear is a poorly implemented clunky beta product that was rushed to market with beta hardware. Unlike Apple android manufacturers aren’t actually thinking much about how people will interact with the device, just slapping android beta wear in some janky hardware and hoping for the best. And before people say ‘moto 360’ but im sorry that black bar at the bottom is weak and anyone who knows anything about design would not have let that get out the door, it’s also very clunky in comparison to the apple watch.

    That said the iphone 6 wasnt a huge step up, but the android competition still need to up their game, especially in the camera department which for me is the weakest aspect of android phones at the moment.

  • Jonathan Kramer

    You guys might have included the price point comparison as well. Apple is offering the 6 Plus, 16 gb model for $299 WITH a 2 year contract.. Yikes! This makes the One Plus 64 gb UNLOCKED at $349 look like the bargain of the century, not to mention the Apple Watch at $349 ! Ka Ching!

    • John Doe

      I contacted apppe support and yes said the IPhone 6 plus (16 gb module) is $749… Ya one plus is better in every way, also the the 128 gb module is nearly 1K it is unbelievable, with android get a 128 gb SanDisk micro SD card for $100

  • Sondrek17

    “That guy” is here. Sorry if this has already been mentioned, but; processor is not that importnat. Apple does a fine job at making OS’s and user interfaces that does not require too much power. Or they limit the OS so that the processor can keep up. Anyway; I am impressed over what they have done. It is great to see one of the most important companies in the smartphone world make such a move. Yes it is true that they are gettin where we in the Android universe have been years, but this is good. Now there will be more focus on quality than size and specs. If I’m not wrong the xperia Z line, htc M8 and samsung galaxy alpha are the only, current, phones that focus primarily on built quality. The specs are great already, but we need better built quality and better battery life. Now that all the OS’s use pretty much the same screen sizes we can now move on to other things.

    In addition; I have not read much about the Apple Watch, but it is not good looking. I still prefer the LG G watch R.

  • Catching up?? Until Android have proper kill switch like Find My iPhone, iOS still ahead.

  • JayMars84

    Apple will never catch up because there are too many things Android offers that Apple believes would confuse iOS users. Hard to to believe its it’s an OS meant for adults.

  • iamtravis182

    The iOS/Android paradigm has truly changed.

    In the beginning, Android was playing catch up by looking at what was working on iOS and taking it over to Android.
    But SO much has changed since then! Now, Google and OEMS are innovating so quickly, that new stuff comes out that isn’t quite ready for adoption or is not very polished…Google Wallet being a perfect example. So what Apple does now is look at the features that Android
    has released, picks and chooses some of them, refines them by making them simple and pretty looking, and then sells it to the public.

    Apple lets Android take risks at implementing new technology, and sits back to see what the public will do. Meanwhile Android (although not always to very much success) tries new stuff and truly innovates, which is why I will always be an Android fan.

    • Karman Nagra

      Don’t you hate when people say that android copied apple, when 6 years later, apple “invents” third party keyboards.

    • tiger

      Innovate? You mean like shitty chips that can’t keep up with the displays? You mean displays that are worthless out in the sun or have piss poor colors? You mean 20000 MP cameras that can’t take a picture worth a damn? You mean processors that are based on architecture over 20 years ago?

      Apple may not be innovative in all areas…but when they do make a product, it all works well. Can you say that about Androids? Think about it.

      • B. Alex

        i enjoy android and not all android phones are great . yeah there will be fails along the way . But at least they learn from them . Also i am not forgetting , although apple did not invent the smartphone , they made it cool at that point so apple has a +1 from me :D . Also i am sure that they will make a lot of money with the iphone 6 and 6+ so i have no reason to pitty them . If they can sell ice to the Eskimos , great for them .

      • iamtravis182

        I can say that my Nexus 5 is a fantastic phone, comparable to even this latest round of iPhones. I am more of a fan of Android as a platform than a fan of any particular OEM who makes Android phones. There some great android phones, and some not so great android phones.

        But I will always be a proponent of stock Android and the phones that run it because I do believe stock android to be superior compared to iOS.

  • Why would they have added NFC any sooner if they hadn’t deals in place to implement Apple pay? Apple don’t just add features to please nerds looking to put a tick in a check box.

    • Maskakos

      You are right to a point. The problem is that now that they have their deals and apple pay only i phone 6 users can take advantage of it. If they had put an nfc chip in the 5s then more could benefit from this. But that is what apple does everytime to make you get next device. They hold up alot. Same goes for ram. Next year you will need 2gb and old users will get screwed.

      • Ok Apple could have added NFC to the iPhone a couple of years ago but what if they didn’t find a satisfactory implementation? Carry on adding the chip or remove it 2 or 3 upgrades? Again, it’s added to be used, not added for a checklist.

        “But that is what apple does everytime to make you get next device” – applies to every new feature by every company making phones. Would you be happier if new features/technology wasn’t added?

        The RAM thing, you don’t know what Apple have planned for next year and thats one of the iOS/Android user divides. Why so much talk on here about spec? It doesn’t matter if your phone has the latest & greatest processor & RAM etc, what does it matter if it still sucks?

        It’s a phone. No one is forced to buy it, or love it, or hate it. The only people looking at their 5s and thinking damn I need the 6! are nerds like me. With or without NFC the nerds are going to upgrade, just like me. Normal consumers don’t think like this and don’t make irrational decisions like that. If I preferred Android I’d want the newest all the time, it’s not an iOS thing. I know it’s not normal and I’m fine with that. A normal consumer is happy to carry on rocking their 4s or 5, I know that causes us nerds pain but thats reality.

        The iSheep/iZombie thing needs explaining to me. Isn’t Android like 80% or 90% of the smartphone market? Is iSheep an ironic thing?

        Catching up or caught up? I’m not sure to be honest. It would be interesting to hear the views of Android OEM’s as to where they think Apple sit in the mobile market. I’m sure there are a few that would swap places with them in a heartbeat, I think they would love to be lagging behind like Apple.

    Not a chance,android phones have better ram,expandable storage, and there are way too many choice of phones for all kinds of people, low end,price, mid,high,price, and specs,and the playstore from Google is way better for all kinds of apps,and other needs!

  • SRPat

    iPhones don’t have mid range specs, with the exception of RAM. Apple’s dual core SOCs tend to have better single threaded performance and better GPUs than competing Qualcomm SOCs. While the cameras have less pixels, they tend to have larger pixels, this combined with the software processing leads to more consistent pictures when left on auto. It’s likely that the A8 will have better single threaded performance and a better GPU than the Snapdragon 805.
    Display size is arguable due to personal preferences. I can understand screen resolution, however I believe we have reached the point of diminishing returns, as an increase in resolution will lead to reduced battery life as the GPU has to run at a higher frequency, without providing any significant advantages to the end user.

    • Karman Nagra

      *Brags about larger pixels, doesn’t realize large pixels are a fancy word for pixilated images*

      • SRPat

        Larger pixels, allow better low light photography. Most high end DSLRs have a max of 20 mp despite having significantly larger pixels. For smartphones, I would argue that 8 mp is enough as it allows you to record in 4K, a greater megapixel count would be useful if you tend to crop your photos or use digital zoom. A counter argument would be that a high megapixel camera would enable the use of pixel binning, (like Nokia does in the 930, 1020 and 1520), which provides the advantage of larger pixels, however a 20 mp sensor would only allow pixel binning for 5 mp pictures. Also, none of the Android OEMs have implemented pixel binning in their flagship phones, not even Sony which has the largest 20 mp sensor in a smartphone.

        • Karman Nagra

          There is difference in mega pixels and pixels on a screen…. So. Anyways why are you advertising apple products to us *smarter* android users?!

          • SRPat

            The larger pixels I was talking about were referring to the camera, and my previous response to you was about the camera. Sorry if it seemed like I was trying to advertise Apple products, I was trying to point out that Apple’s hardware wasn’t really mid range. As an android user I’m hoping that we don’t fall into the trap of bigger numbers being better. We have seen this in the SOC market where people believe more cores are better, but what’s more important is architecture, that’s why the NVidia Tegra K1 Denver is an interesting SOC. The same has happened in cameras with people thinking a higher megapixel count is better, but they don’t take into account sensor and pixel size which are arguably more important in low light photography, which is where all smartphones struggle.

          • Karman Nagra

            I agree with your statement that specs are not everything and its definitely true. However there is a cost for using such a limiting os, and most people are not going to be happy to switch just because of a bigger screen or slightly better specs. There is one thing you should know. It’s not the GPU that is better or faster on apple. Its just that they alter the way apps are made and designed so that they apear smoothing, even though it probably doesn’t go over 40 frames. But the point is that the app size is often doubled in the process and since there is no expandable storage, its often a downside to most users. So yes I do agree they so a good job at optimizing software, but they are very limited in freedom to the user. The way I see it as is apple products are more for older people and kids who need a simpler interface and they just use the phone for basic tasks, rather than heavy tasks or customizing etc.another thing is that apple doesn’t have better chips than Qualcomm . their performance is soley based on software optimizations. Hope this clears some misconceptions.

          • SRPat

            The GPUs Apple use are from Imagination Technologies, based on testing done by Anandtech, which shows raw performance, they tend to perform better than Qualcomm’s GPUs. Obviously, Apple’s vertical platform allows them to optimises their software and also allowing developers to create native apps due to iOS only running on very few hardware variations, therefore leading to better performance and battery life. I personally prefer Android over iOS, however the ability to customize Android is something that the average consumer isn’t bothered with and they choose Android phones due to marketing, price points or brand preference.

          • abazigal

            There is a fine line between advertising, and clarifying misunderstandings and flat-out lies.

        • Karman Nagra

          The best camera for any phone would be the note 4, and iPhone cameras do not compare even closely to a flagship device. You have to really that apple is just using cheap gimmicks so that people would actually buy their overpriced pieces of metal.

  • iTvez

    que se podia esperar de una pagina dedicada a android XD, y esta comparacion para que? es un sin sentido, el que tiene la plata se comprara lo que le guste y ya, lo unico ue tengo que desir es que android ni con sus 30 mil cores o sus 1000 8000 gb de ram puede funcionar fluido…

  • Ashley

    Apple tried to save on every single shit – 1 gb ram, 16 gb storage, display, camera. But the price goes sky high, lol. So inovative and revolutionary!

    • Leif Shantz

      I’m pretty sure that the manufacturing cost is under $150 due to using outdated Icrap parts and price them 5x higher
      I am going to convert my moms iPhone 4S to a cheaper Android phone when our 3year contract in Canada ends.
      These specs are really 2012 NFC, dual core crap, and another thing that phones had since 2011: 1GB ram
      Btw I am not a fan of Icrap stuff but I use a ipad 2 which is three years old but plan to get a android tablet ASAP

      • B. Alex

        i have an android phone and the specs are only a part of a phone . the other half is the OS . iOS is made to work with 1 gb ram and a dual core proc . That is how it is and it work 4 them . Same with windows phones , the OS is stable even with 512 ram . It all comes down to how much you want to pay for the Brand / Specs / OS and what you actually need !
        From my point of view iphone is more of a stance , for show and good function . They have great apps and a great store . I feel that android has a lot to lean when it comes to the OS . Yeah it is good but the OEMs (Samsung/HTC/Sony) screw the whole thing up . They should have less access to modify the OS , faster updates and Android will be the true winner in the battle . We can argue that apple has old products and things like that but apple is laughing all the way to the bank .
        Same thing applies to the smartwatches . Moto 360 nice but not even a full day battery , that is a deal breaker . If the apple watch can do 2 days even for 350 $ is good . So yeah we will see a lot of smart wear in the future and not everything will be good .

        • cellabonez

          you know using sony as reference for messing up theming makes me think you never own a sony, correct me if am wrong

          • B. Alex

            wrong , as a matter of fact i own the z1 at the moment and will upgrade in about a month to the z3 . Even if sony does not do as much customizations as samsung , they still poke there nose in there and they should not do that in my opinion .

          • cellabonez

            ok cool

  • raven myers

    There is no 4K video, it uses an 8mp back camera…

    • Karman Nagra

      It might as well be 0.4 k and apple would advertise as 4k.

      • raven myers

        An 8mp camera isn’t capable of 4K

        • Karman Nagra

          I know, but its not like apple has never lied before in order to sell their product

  • Matthew Dorris

    I feel like my note 3 from LAST YEAR is way better than either new iphone. Lol maybe next year apple can attempt to compete with the note 4. Oh and did you hear the news, apple invented this new thing that let’s your phone communicate with other devices when held close together… sounds kinda familiar

    • Karman Nagra

      Haha. True very true. Apple should just give up because people are getting smarter every year, and eventually they are going to realize what a scam apple is. And then nobody will buy their products. Then the CEO would commit suicide and thus the world will be a happier place.

    • Chicoman

      They have to present it as new to avoid a lawsuit for copyright/patent infringement as Apple has said anyone and everyone who has even come close to their phone features so trying to implement anything on an iphone that’s already on android is going to get them sued as a result. Great strategy iphone, well, at least the lawyers got rich, the customers got….#$%^

      • Matthew Dorris

        It doesn’t change the fact that they could have implemented all these features two or three years ago when everyone else was instead of playing catch up then putting such high prices on these iPhone that have 2 year old specs and features

    • DroidGuy360

      i feel the same way with my note 3, lol.

    • tiger

      It is called iBeacon…and Android has no clue what it is. You may want to educate yourself on it before posting…..

      • Matthew Dorris

        Oh yeah. Us android users are just so jealous of those annoying pop up ads while walking around our local department stores. Lol

        • tiger

          AirDrop. No need to bump.

          • Matthew Dorris

            I had an app on my Samsung Droid charge that shares files almost exactly the same way apple airdrop does… that was 4 years ago

          Most ironic comment ever!!

  • K.

    The Apple stock rose to $103, from $99, at the beginning of the event and at the end of the day it fell to $98. The investor must just thought “Meh”.

  • sammyl

    Happy with my LG G3! Way better than iPhone 6 plus and way way way cheaper :)

  • Kazahani

    They haven’t caught up to anything. My LG G3 is better than this in literally every way.

  • Name goes here

    I like Apple products. I don’t consider myself a fanboy. I like what I’ve seen of Android, but really don’t like Google. I don’t like being the product they sell to advertisers. So after admitting my biases, I think that Apple surpassed (or stayed in front of) Android as soon as they released the Touch ID.

    • DroidGuy360

      hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

  • gilahacker

    @Andrew Grush – Article fails to list that the Note 4 has OIS for the rear (primary) camera, and I think the LG G3 does as well.

  • Jayfeather787

    pffff. What a joke.

  • apolloa

    Some of the Xperia Z3 Compact specs are incorrect in this report, like the screen resolution and RAM, also the Nexus 5 has optical image stabilisation but that isn’t in your grid of specs :)
    But on the topic, no, definitely NO Apple has not caught up, and why are we talking about them catching up in the first place? I know that is the fact, but when the iPhone costs so much, more than some of the better Android handsets, and we are talking about them catching up! For their price they should be at the front, not far behind the curve as they really are. People are talking about NFC payments like it’s a totally new thing now, just because Apple announced it, they all seemed to have forgotten they have RFID chips in their credit and debit cards already that they never use…

    I would like to see the comparison against Samsung Alpha as well.

    As usual. AA new phones specs are full of errors and “unknowns”. Thats old articles data (rumors) shoved into new articles. One of the worest iPhone 6 coverage on the net.

  • gommer strike

    But one needs to wonder…how did Apple do, what they did, with Apple Pay? They somehow corralled all these companies into playing ball with Apple Pay and their NFC payment system. Android’s had NFC for *years* ahead of Apple. For god sake they even got Whole Foods and even McDonalds(!) to comply? WTF?

    I don’t understand why Samsung, LG, Google, et all didn’t manage to get the exact same thing going for them, that Apple did with Apple Pay. And by that, a unified credit card payment system that all these disparate retailers all suddenly decided to go OK – we’re doing this.

    It’s almost like a repeat of what they did to the music industry and iTunes. What’s going on?

    • abazigal

      That’s what Apple gets, which the rest of the industry don’t.

      Other companies simply dump an NFC chip into a phone and call it a day, expecting it to somehow just work itself out for the consumer. The problem is, if everyone just waits for someone else to push for NFC, the reality is that nobody will at the end of the day.

      Conversely, Apple understands that getting the right user experience means getting many different aspects to work harmoniously together. They don’t just put NFC in their iPhone, they specially go out of their way to set up partnerships with other companies to make this service worth it.

      Apple doesn’t sell you a product; they sell you an experience and a solution which “just works”.

  • Rohan

    Although I totally love android phones and qualcomm, the A8 chip has an edge over the snapdragon 800 even though it might have 4 cores at 2.x GHz. The GHz war is over now. The CPU architecture is much better in the a8. This has been proven by the geeknench scores.

  • Ewa2t

    where is the sapphire display???

  • Rugby

    Still ur plastic Android phones sucks!!
    Apple is in war with no one.

    • Umer Farooq

      Ermmm. I raise you HTC One series!

  • Samastrike

    Yeah so most of the information here is wrong…
    Firstly you guys have clearly never heard of cyclone if you think the A8’s 2 cores are somehow comparable to just 2 Krait cores in the snapdragon 800’s. iOS optimisations have nothing to do with the A7 still crushing snapdragons in CPU benchmarks.
    1GB of RAM is not yet confirmed so don’t say this like it’s true.
    The camera sensor is actually larger (1/3″) than the sensors used in most android phones so wrong again… Also you ‘forgot’ to mention slo mo.
    TouchID is a thing you also ‘forgot’.

  • Ian Huntly

    At least for the Apple fan boys, they can get a phone that is closer to state of the art, than the relics they have had to live with up to now. The Apple Watch however is a big step forward in principle and and easily betters the the ho-hum efforts from Samsung et al. and it is reasonable looking too. I could be tempted on the watch. In a couple of months I will be getting my 3rd generation phablet, and it will be either Note 4 or LG as things stand.

  • B377

    There is a mistake in the first table “Display”. Same specs are listed for Z3 and Z3 compact.

  • Jeffrey Tillack

    I’ve only just come across to the Android and have to admit, I’m mightily impressed. I love the Samsung Galaxy’s and their features. And everyone’s right, Apple is only (almost) catching up – there’s nothing new in the offing. But at least they’ve recognised the world isn’t theirs anymore. However, I do love my 10 year old iMac – it still works perfectly day in day out (sorry!)

  • nilbud

    They could have put 2GB RAM in but then they wouldn’t be able to squeeze every last drop of profit out of the applezombies.

    • Flip Jumpman

      I think they’ll put 2gb ram on the 6s. Then OIS and make it thicker for a better battery.

    Why are people comparing specs? They’re all pretty much the same. Some are a little faster or better than others. Some have better features. That’s it. What is the big deal? It’s the OS. If Apple, Samsung, Nexus, HTC, Sony, etc all ran a choice of either iOS or Android, then people will just be choosing the brand they fancy and installing the iOS they like. That’s it. Some folks may get like their HTC with iOS8 and some may like their Apple with Android. For now, many people are buying Apple because of iOS and the others because of Android. It’s the user experience that people are buying into. Don’t people get this fact? Comparing specs make no sense at all.

    • Andreas Larsson

      What are you talking about? Most people here are talking about the new hardware apple presented yesterday, and it’s really not that far fetched to make comparison to competing manufacturers hardware is it? This article isn’t about the software, it’s about the hardware/phone

    • Re: “If Apple, Samsung, Nexus, HTC, Sony, etc all ran a choice of either iOS or Android, then people will just be choosing the brand they fancy and installing the iOS they like. That’s it.”

      However… ….that’s a scenario that simply couldn’t happen. Android has to run on all kinds of hardware and Devs are in a position of supporting not only all the variables that introduces, but also how many versions of Android they want to be able to run on.

      With Apple able to target a much smaller universe of parts and being able to move the big majority of its base to the latest OS versions in much shorter periods of time – and controlling its own CPU – they’re in a position to deliver a much more cohesive and more tightly integrated hardware/software experience by being able to optimize for that ecosystem. Which is their advantage. And why, e.g., they can deliver comparable performance on platforms that at first glance seem way under-specced compared to Android devices.

      Android’s strengths, OTOH, lie more exactly in its diverse and heterogeneous “wild west” ecosystem, with all the software forks, mods, skins, and all the different companies competing to build distinct devices, etc., despite the extra complexities involved.

      It’s an interesting contrast, but iOS would never be able to compete if distributed across the entire OEM universe, nor would Android prosper to the same degree if consigned to any single current Android maker (including Samsung) without a wrenching transition into something it’s not.

  • oisinmcguigan

    let them have their 2 year old device. Its almost year end and I cant wait to see some of the things we get as cutting edge adopters.

  • Mihai Andrici

    Ok, I know that AA is clearly biased towards Android, but that’s not a problem. What is a problem is that you guys still think an octa-core CPU just HAS to be better than the best dual-core CPU around.

    Here’s how the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 in the Galaxy S5 fares against the Apple A7 (the chip inside the iPhone 5S) in terms of raw performance.

    http://www.anandtech.com/show/7903/samsung-galaxy-s-5-review/7

    “On paper, it’s obvious that the quad and even octa-core giants of the
    Android world kick the crap out of Apple, coupled with RAM sizes in the 2
    to 3GB range.” – writing that shows that you have NO knowledge of CPU arhitecture, and are one of the people that buy a phone because it comes with octa-core CPU… hehe, you make me laugh!

    Message for Bogdan: I know that you have to make due with the writers you have, but maybe you can send them some material they can use for learning more about how a CPU / GPU works, and why an octa-core 2.7GHz CPU isn’t necessarily better than a dual-core one at 1.4GHz.

  • Mike Vass

    lol!! Caught up!! xD

    Apple are way, way ahead of Android in terms of delivering a polished, cohesive, bug-free and fast system. It’s not all about how many features, third party apps, hacks, pixels and inches you can possibly cram into a device.

    • PeterBlood

      Exactly. Well said Mike.

      • tpdallas

        Bug free my ass.

        • PeterBlood

          Of course you are referring to Android.

    • tpdallas

      Bug free? are you freaking kidding me dude wow

  • Re “Of course, we have to remember that Apple’s processor is 64-bit, which could give it a tiny edge (arguably).”

    …That’s way short-term thinking. In the longer run 64 bit software’s going to be able to do many things that 32 bit can’t. And Apple’s control over hardware means they’ll be able to drop all support for 32 bit in another two gens of iterating their iDevices when the last 32 bit ones will quit receiving updates. Having a single 64 bit target will not so gradually allow much richer and more functional applications.

    (It will also bring Apple’s full PC and iDevice lines into closer alignment and allow greater cross-functionality.)

    Moving to 64 bit is going to take many years with Android (if it happens at all in the medium term, given that Android will continue to be the platform that serves much of the developing world – and which depends on getting the most inexpensive devices possible into the hands of non-affluent users). And that means more complex and messy development cycles in a two-tier 32/64 bit system in terms of both the OS and apps.

    And despite a few 64 bit flagships starting to hit the market, it’s going to be a long time before robust 64 bit apps become the Android mainstream.

    So jus’ sayin’… …y’all (the article writers) are blowin’ smoke here…

    • PeterBlood

      Uhh no they’re not. U.S. Android market share is down, Apple’s is up. Samsung sales are down. And guess what’s further going to happen to Android share once the iPhone 6 is released here in the States…? (And elsewhere.)

      Will Apple take over? No. Android in all it’s cheap no-brand permutations will still have majority market share but Apple will increase it’s market share and take most of what counts – profit share. 1.3 million apps and rising. watch on the way next year while Android sufferers deal with hapless Shamdung and Gaggle useless droppings. They won’t be able to easily match Apple’s watch and things like Apple Pay.

        How can Apple Pay become ubiquitous with those numbers?

        And whilst Google Play has similar numbers of apps, what does it matter how many millions each has?

        There’s maybe 10 you actually use.

        • PeterBlood

          Classic Fandroid.

          IPhone 6 sales are through the roof. Many Android switchers.
          South Korean CEO’s wetting and shi**ing themselves right now.

          Apples pay solution will be far more trusted, work better and Apple customers have been proven to have the money and will to spend money. It will be the most successful and widely used regardless of market share where Android users are largely poorer and less intelligent. Apple’s ecosystem is just better fundamentally over anything Google has.

          The figure is an average of 17-20 apps per user. Just more choices is all. And fragmentation still haunts Android as well as far fewer apps optimized for Android tablets to the point of it being a joke.

          • Mike

            Woah, calm down. You’ll bust something.

            I’m an android user and that makes me less intelligent? OK.

            I won’t resort to insults.

            I’ll simply say that Apple Pay may well work for most iOS users.

            By definition that means it has no value for anyone else. In Europe, anyone else is 80%.

          • PeterBlood

            Sorry Michael. I don’t have a lot of respect for most amped up Android fans, at least on these forums. They do come off as major dufuses much as they like to pretend others are. You did sound a bit dismissive (“Classic fanboy”) and use stereotype judgment as if that automatically invalidates an argument.

            Obviously I was referring to Apple Pay in the U.S.. Foreign solutions will come no doubt as well. Apple’s solution will be the most popular here and probably there too. Android worldwide is too fragmented and security issue prone to garner the confidence of financial institutions elsewhere, at least as much as Apple has with far fewer phone models to support. Granted there were some iCloud security issues recently but those have been patched and additional security is in the works, and iCloud security is a different animal anyway.

          • Mike

            Hey, no worries mon ami. Yes, I am an android user – we are on an android fan site after all.

            I actually like some Apple stuff. What I don’t like – indeed, loath – is this constant arrogant shoving-down-the-throat rubbish that we get from the fruit fans. You’re doing it now – “Shamdung and Gaggle useless droppings”….”Android worldwide is too fragmented and security issue prone to garner the confidence of financial institutions elsewhere”.

            How weird then that I have no issues with HSBC or Paypal using my phone. A Gaggle useless dropping.

            ALL computer systems are potentially suspect. The fact is that bad guys aren’t stupid. They focus their efforts on the biggest number. And in mobile, even in the US, that means android. And yes, aided by the OS’s inherent freedom. Freedom includes the freedom for users to do silly things. That freedom is why we like it. We want to fiddle. We want to customise. We want it how we want it, not how we’re told to have it.

            You like that, or you don’t. It doesn’t mean that one approach, in itself, is better than another. They’re just different.

          • PeterBlood

            Sorry, it’s just hard to hold my contempt for companies like Google and Samsung who copied their way into the market and did not reinvent their devices in ways Microsoft did in order to differentiate.

            I do think Apple’s pay system will be the more trusted system. You may be right in that Google will figure it out to their satisfaction but just call me a skeptic. For the moment Google’s Wallet effort is considered unsuccessful. Everyone was waiting for Apple’s solution.

            “Google Wallet essentially failed with an NFC-based offline mobile payments system; what makes anyone think that Apple will succeed with Apple Pay? It’s also based on NFC technology. However there are some significant and subtle things that Apple has done that give Apple Pay a better chance of mainstream adoption.

            At the highest level the twin benefits of convenience and security will appeal to many iPhone owners. In addition, Apple has enlisted numerous household brand names to participate in the program. The day one involvement of major retail brands gives the program additional credibility and offers “comfortable” and familiar places to test it out.

            The fact that there’s already an active credit card on file with iTunes here is also a big deal. Apple Pay is ready to go “out of the box,” so to speak. Google struggled with payment card options for months. (In fairness, Google also faced carrier obstacles that Apple won’t.)

            Beyond the iTunes credit card Apple has made it easy to add new payment or loyalty cards by simply taking a picture, using the iPhone’s camera. Those cards are then stored in Passbook, realizing its full promise as a true “mobile wallet.”

            Apple has clearly thought through the overall user experience, emphasizing privacy and security in the keynote and on the website. These are consistently mentioned as concerns or obstacles in consumer surveys about mobile payments.”

            Of course Google will try to copy Apple’s Pay solution.

            One of those cards iTunes has is mine. I’ll still never use Apple pay. Neither will 80% of smartphone users in Europe. Why? Personally, I loathe their arrogance and whole ethos. The rest don’t use an iPhone.

            And who’s copying who now? Google and Samsung created the mini tablet market. The format Jobs said would never work. Google and Samsung created the bigger phone market. The format Jobs said would never sell. And what have they done?

            Look, I hold no brief for Samsung. But Google and Apple represent two fundamentally different ideas. Google bring out half-cocked ideas that need user feedback and may or may not ever see a real launch. Think Glass, driverless cars, the internet of things. High definition displays (what is this “retina” rubbish? It’s a word). Wireless charging. Devices which compare with the best but are priced in the hope you’ll buy their content.

            Real exciting stuff that gets even an old guy like me juiced up. And whilst I do buy their content, I buy it elsewhere too. I have that freedom.

            Apple see what others have done, including the mistakes, and in their eyes, improve it. So there’s years between the first digital music player and iPod, years between the first “smarter” phones and iPhone, years between slates and iPad, years between smart watches and Apple watch. They charge top dollar, then lock you into their garden. They insist you use their software and hardware to watch their live launch stream, and then it doesn’t work.

            You prefer that approach. I don’t.

            Criticism of your beloved brand drives you insane. To the point of insulting us with intemperate language.

            These are gadgets FFS. It’s not the meaning of life.

            Continue your tirade if you want. I’m done.

          • PeterBlood

            Any perceived “arrogance and whole ethos” is illusionary. You WANT to perceive them that way. Name anything they’ve done to warrant that? I think you confuse enthusiastic and at times overzealous Apple fans (and there are equally zealous Fandroid) with the company so you punish the company with your attitude. The “walled garden” BS is equally illusionary since Android if anything is even more walled in. Search for articles like “The truth about Google’s “open” Android ecosystem” and others to see how unopen Android is.

            I’m sorry but that fact that Google and Android came out with a smaller tablet and that isn’t innovation, neither is larger. The iPhone had a larger screen than phones before it but it was never called an innovation. It won’t be an innovation when Apple comes out with a 12″ iPad either.

            I give no credit to Samsung for larger phones. Like that wouldn’t have happened anyway? Give me a break. There’s no genius in being larger, they were just trying to compete any which way they could. That is also an end sum game. There’s a limit to how big and “bigness” preference is in the eyes of the beholder, it’s not the be all and end all.

            Exactly. Google may takle a stab at stuff but little has come to any successful fruition, like with Microsoft. You know why? Because these companies don’t know how to execute. They have neither the taste nor the design sense to build something thoughtful and useful. Granted some people prefer crass technology.

            I’m pretty old too and yeah we can celebrate the choices and all the goodies on parade. Frankly there’s no need to buy from anywhere but the Apple App Store. Apps are vetted and as safe to use as you can find. I want it simplified and one stop shopping works for me. Have fun!

          • Mike

            I see your particular brand of bile and hatred is evident elsewhere on the internet. You clearly find it impossible to cope with any criticism of your beloved brand. Have you considered a program?

            Trust me, foaming at the mouth is unseemly in those of advanced years, and indeed is not particularly healthy.

            You may wish to consider an alternative path in life, particularly if you also experience similar levels of stress in other areas.

          • PeterBlood

            There is no higher hatred, level of lying and specious command of the facts on the Internet than Fandroid with Apple Hating in their veins. Seem to go hand in hand like a disease and has nothing to do with Apple fans. Their viciousness and disingenuousness holds no bounds. You have precious little objectivity or you’d say otherwise.

            You’re the last person who should be dispensing psychological advice since you are also one of the clueless class aka like the inmates in the Android Asylum.

      • StanS

        You state things as fact, but are not.
        SHOW US THE NUMBERS!!! Where are these figures you spurt as true?
        The only thing apple [and you] is good for is laughs.

        • PeterBlood

          People like you live in your own delusional world and believe what you prefer to believe despite all evidence to the contrary. It’s hard to argue with the clearly & disingenuously insane. I leave you with your meds and a mental ward staff that I trust treats you patiently and well.

          • StanS

            Still no numbers Forrest?
            Really shows the world how meaningless life would be without the iphone being invented.
            Run Forrest, run!

          • PeterBlood

            Still no brains hillbilly banjo boy? Can’t Google this stuff for your clueless half-wit self? Typical Fandroid ultra-maroon without any mental resources of his own. So feeling sorry for your handicap here yah go:

            4 million iPhone 6’s pre-sold first day offered IN JUST ONE DAY.

            42% Apple U.S. market share – up 1% YOY

            27% Samsung U.S. market share – down 1% YOY & S5 sales tanking

            11-12% Worldwide Apple iPhone market share (Huge percentage of Android phones sold are cheap knock-offs. Samsung’s marketshare decreased from 32.2 percent in 2013 to 24.9 percent in 2014 as China brands, etc. undermine their low end. Apple is attacking their high end.)

            60% Apple worldwide profit share from all smart phones

            43.9% Apple worldwide web usage market share

            52.3% Apple U.S. web usage market share but levels of traffic generated by Samsung smartphones remain significantly lower than the traffic generated by Apple iPhones @ 26.4%. iPhone 6 is expected to boost this percentage even higher for Apple.

            iOS users spend more money, more often than Android users. According to a new analysis, iOS users tend to make more purchases online compared to Android users. This continues to send an extremely strong signal that iOS is a lucrative platform for eCommerce, never mind the fact that Android has picked up its fair share of users over the years. The study showed that iOS users spent around $93.94 on average, which is nearly double of what Android users spent at $48.10 per order. Cheapskates = Android users/losers

          • StanS

            So these figures are made up?

            The Samsung figures only mean other ANDROID phones are catching up.

            Stop being an idiot. Spending more on icrap doesn’t mean it’s better.

          • PeterBlood

            Only to dingleberries like you who refuse to accept the truth. I’d say look them up for yourself but obviously you are incapable of doing so, as well as most other things requiring a modicum of intelligence.

            What Android phones are “catching up?” (love how you get defensive when you’re on the side of needing to catch up but take no prisoners the other way, and now you have no clothes with the larger iPhones out.) They all use the same OS with minor manufacturer crap (which is why Android is not a terribly unified ecosystem like iOS is which has a 92% adoption rate.) Samsung is the market leader in Android phones stupid. I know many prefer HTC over Samsung though. Not my cup of tea either way.

            The idiocy is all on you who refuses to accept market realities or any level of reasonable conversation. All my figures are from accurate sources. I can’t spend time on an Ostrich Man who buries his head in the sand intentionally. Apple is better – lots better – and iOS 8, Apple Pay and Apple ecosystem will continue to prove that fact. I genuinely feel sorry for those who have gulped down the Samsung/Google hemlock. I welcome the many former Android users fleeing back to the extremely desirable iPhone 6.

          • StanS

            You are an idiot. You put all these numbers, but no sites where you get them from. You fail miserably as you live your pathetic life. By trying to convince yourself that your guru is NOT stupid enough to try to cure cancer by eating apples.
            Truth, you can’t handle the truth.

            OK, I’ve wasted enough time on you kid. You don’t want to find these sources (when it’s easy) or more likely are incapable with the excruciatingly low level of brain power at your disposal. You’re moronic posts demonstrate all too clearly the type of individual you are. I love the irony of someone who is exactly what he accuses others of being. Bye Tardboy.

          • StanS

            Apple Pay? Isn’t that Google Wallet? Suck on that Ned Beatty!
            Cutting edge?
            HA!

          • PeterBlood

            Yeah and how is that ill-thought out, nobody is using it Google Wallet working out fer yah? Google will never take this to the heights Apple will, and hasn’t. For one Google wants to hoard user information while Apple doesn’t. Apple is the much better service executor. Google throws out crap before it’s truly ready and has the pieces in place when Apple doesn’t, like you go off before you’re actually inside the other guy’s posterior.

            As far as completely well thought out Apple is the cutting edge force to deal with. Google is an also-ran. It’s not about being first, it’s being the best. What a fool and unmitigated loser.

          • StanS

            Best? You don’t even have one transaction under your belt. Plus you NEED to buy new phones to use it, Ned. I’ve used Google Wallet 4 times in the past 7 days…
            Can you say that about ipay?
            It’s not even out and you say it’s great…
            You are drowning in your apple cider flavored Jim Jones kool-aid.

          • PeterBlood

            It was just announced idiot!!! Google Wallet is a total failure! Let’s talk in a few months when iPhone sales continue through the roof and Apple Pay becomes the dominant pay service that Apple had the foresight to get everyone on board with dipwad. More importantly Apple is far more TRUSTED. You are about to be served up a heaping helping of crow dumbass. I can’t wait!!
            —————–
            “Google Wallet essentially failed with an NFC-based offline mobile payments system; what makes anyone think that Apple will succeed with Apple Pay? It’s also based on NFC technology. However there are some significant and subtle things that Apple has done that give Apple Pay a better chance of mainstream adoption.

            At the highest level the twin benefits of convenience and security will appeal to many iPhone owners. In addition, Apple has enlisted numerous household brand names to participate in the program. The day one involvement of major retail brands gives the program additional credibility and offers “comfortable” and familiar places to test it out.

            The fact that there’s already an active credit card on file with iTunes here is also a big deal. Apple Pay is ready to go “out of the box,” so to speak. Google struggled with payment card options for months. (In fairness, Google also faced carrier obstacles that Apple won’t.)

            Beyond the iTunes credit card Apple has made it easy to add new payment or loyalty cards by simply taking a picture, using the iPhone’s camera. Those cards are then stored in Passbook, realizing its full promise as a true “mobile wallet.”

            Apple has clearly thought through the overall user experience, emphasizing privacy and security in the keynote and on the website. These are consistently mentioned as concerns or obstacles in consumer surveys about mobile payments.”

            So you think this would work because of an i in front of it. nice going Forrest.
            Why Apple Pay Might Succeed
            Do you see the word “might”. I see the word “might”. Steve Jobs might be around for Thanksgiving too, and I’ll give it the same odds.

          • PeterBlood

            Apple Pay doesn’t have an “i” in front of it hillbillytard boy. It’s not out yet. Most think it will succeed because it IS Apple. Google has already failed. No one else is coming out with this kind of service nor can do it properly like Apple can. You are an idiot by any definition as is also clear.

            It’s like we know the watch will be the success in smart watches none of Google or Samsung effarts have been, BECAUSE it’s Apple. Sorry Charlie. You just hate facing up to that fact being a total dyed-in-the-wool sSheep and gSheep.

  • Frederick

    Apple’s major processing power that provides its smooth performance lies with the GPU, the last A7 chip has a quad-core from Power VR, this time it might escalate, but never forget that some Android phone out there also uses the same GPU just its software isn’t tuned well with. Least lets not forget we still have Nvidia’s Tegra K1 SoC that has 192 kepler cores, which hasn’t made it out as a main stream on Android devices as to with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon SoC.

  • bklm1234

    Apple, are you kidding me? A flagship (iphone 6) with less than HD display? Apple robs the iSheep blind. Thank God for Android. This side of the world prices are trending down, customers are getting more value and more freedom. We have so many great low cost flagships such as the new Moto X, OnePlus One, Huawei Ascend Mate 7, Xiaomi Mi4, Meizu MX-4. Even the premium priced flagships like Note 4, G3 pack more values for lower prices.

      A Fandroid Fool and his cheapskate BOGOF money are soon parted. Good luck with the 99% malware, craptastic fragmented ecosystem, Google data mining and overall lousy bull-in-a-china-shop execution. Yeah you got a grate phone all right.

      • StanS

        Ehhh, “grate” is what you do to cheese. You are an idiot and deserve to stay ignorant in matters that you don’t have the capacity to understand. I see that you can spew terms that came in the brochures that came with your icrap.

        • PeterBlood

          Grate as in “grating” is what you and your ilk are and anyone of intelligence would know that. The sophomoric insults from you bespeak a total moron in training. A steaming stew and vitriolic spew describe you perfectly as one of the sub-class Fandroid humans who are incapable of recognizing quality, nor seeing the truth, nor acknowledge actual history, preferring to make up your own. Crap is something you worship and prefer to own. Good luck with that loser. My heart goes out to your family members who have to put up with your tripe.

          • StanS

            You must of been the model they used for the Forrest Gump movie. You are one ignorant SOB. Pity you don’t even understand how stupid you are. Calling me a loser because you love a phone. Really shows the world how meaningless life would be without the iphone being invented.

            So you as a movie guy best resembles the inbred hillbilly banjo player in DELIVERANCE who just carries an Android Slingblade slicing off the head of real facts. real tech history and any real common sense. Uh huh.

            Better dish up another heap of tater lies. You wouldn’t have the Android phone nearly so fast without Apple reinventing it first and best. Your (real) hate has made you powerfu…, I mean diarrheic. Look in a mirror, you are the thing you hate most. And ignorance is the thing you do best.

          • StanS

            Sure, if you are Ned Beatty.

            Squeel, like a pig that you are.

            Again, it’s like Apple didn’t steal from Bell and Marconi.

            I remember apple stating no one would buy large phones… What an insight of what people want.

            Now, apple, the cutting edge company that it it, has brought out a phone in late 2014 with the same specs as my 30 month old phone as their “flagship”. And fools like you can’t wait to fork over cash for them.

            Sucks to be a isheep. Can’t defend it so you need to sling your icrap on those who don’t buy icrap.

            You really are showing the world how meaningless your life would be without the iphone being invented. Good thing you can sleep next to an almost real women siri.

          • PeterBlood

            Ned Butty is more your speed with the Google and Samsung hillbilly sodomist having his way with you. You are just another disingenuous geekturd who doesn’t want to give ANYONE credit for reinvention, innovation and changing the landscape of tech overnight. An hilarious breed of inhuman monster. There is just no satiating clueless wonders like you if it doesn’t fit your view of the world.

            Sure because it didn’t appeal to Steve Jobs (in early iPhone history) he assumed no one would want a large phone, UNTIL applications and other usages began to sprout up over time. Jobs didn’t exist in a vacuum or in a stasis field. (He was late putting CDR burners in Macs too.) He would have done the same thing and evolved as the smart phone system evolved. He died 3 years ago yah know and was sick before that. You are a supreme moron to keep bringing it up. CEO’s change their minds all the time and there’s nothing wrong with that. I would love to see your personal history and lay you to waste on something you might have said you later changed your mind on. Whats good for the goose is good for the dufus gander.

            Good luck with your 32-bit Antique Dealer Android phone. Mine’s 64-bit for a year now moron. Of course when you finally get 64-bit you will disingenuously be singing it to the mountaintops. SUCH a two-faced loser.

            Sucks to be an sSheep donut? You can’t defend anything, only spew nonsense. You’re the proverbial Martin Short attorney character Nathan Thurm who steadfastly refused to acknowledge anything that resembled truth or accept anything that might rock your own rationalization biases. Look it up Bozo and accept the truth.

            You’re showing just how meaningless your contribution to the world is in general. In my career I have contributed to things people have seen around the world while you stay holed up in your hovel playing video games and pleasuring yourself junior.

            No, your guru spent his time eating apples to cure cancer. How stupid is he? And you who follow him chanting mantras? Wait, maybe that’s why apple is failing so fast, he’s dead and feeding worms. Go suck on an apple while I check your pulse.
            64-bit? Who cares when there are no apps, and you can’t see the screen.
            And who copied who to make an iwatch? or the plus?
            Squeal, you pig.

          • PeterBlood

            It’s amazing how using an inferior & antiquated 32-bit phone can make someone such an embittered person as yourself. Keep tilting at windmills as Apple takes Samsung’s lunch & market share.

            Clearly you have no idea of failure except when you look in a mirror. Apple is the Number One company in the world dope and makes most of the moola – it’s vaults are bulging with billions. As I said you are a clueless wishful thinker who maintains his own little dream world and refuses to let the real world in. Something children do.

            Such a disingenuous moron – If Android had 64-bit and Apple didn’t you’d be all over that fact and you know it. 64 bit IS used on the iPhone especially nice for gamers which you no doubt are 24/7. What a total abject loser.

            Noose Knot Tying

            Form a loop in the end of the rope. Tuck a bight of the standing end through the loop. Make the bight larger and pass it around the object. Pull on the standing end to tighten the noose.

            Really, You are on Android Authority and criticize people. I am just here to show you how to tie your noose correctly. I would rather talk to Jehovah’s Witnesses then to isheep like you, but since you insist;
            Here’s another Watchtower for you:

            Noose Knot Tying

            Start with a piece of string or rope that is 3 meters (10 feet) in length. Lay the string in a big “C.”

            Bring one end of the loop down parallel to the original rope and fold it into thirds. It should form a wide, sideways, “S.” The lead (the left side) should be left long so that you have some string left at the end for tying to something.

            Now with the bottom of the original “C” wrap the end of the rope around the loop several times, from the bottom near your hand, upwards. When you are finished, there should be a loop at both ends.

            With the string which has been wound around the “C”, poke the end of the rope through the top of the loop left by the “S”.

            Once the string is through the loop, pull on the loop at the other end to tighten the loop, until it securely holds the end of the string.

            Once the loop is fully tightened, you are finished. It should have one giant loop at one end and a piece of string at the other end.

            Make sure you use “string” strong enough so that when you kick the chair it will hold 3X your weight.

            Get lost loser. There’s a village somewhere missing you as it’s idiot. You offer nothing but nonsense to any intelligent discussion. Please strike up conversations with 3 year olds for whom you are a better match in maturity and level of knowledge.

          • StanS

            You still trying? Really lonely aren’t you?
            Maybe I’ll see you on an Apple blog site and make fun of you there.
            But that would mean that MY life is as worthless as yours.

          • PeterBlood

            I don’t see you backing down and shutting up so obviously you have nothing going on in your life. Your life is indeed worthless, shiftless, mindless and a waste of skin.

            But you are right in that there’s no point continuing to have a conversation with someone as mental impaired as you. Feel free to blather on but you’ve won no victory except for the art of stupidity. Further posting on your part constitutes acknowledgment that YOU are THE BIGGEST LOSER. Bye.

            Thank you! And thanks for admitting you ARE The Biggest Loser and prime clueless bonehead in the tech universe. I accept your utter admission of defeat.

            Now go jump off a cliff somewhere and make the earth a better place.

          • StanS

            See you are a FAILURE. Those were YOUR words which are as good as your phone, WORTHLESS.
            Get off Android Authority. Grab that noose and pull.

          • PeterBlood

            The difference between you and me is you’re clueless about facts and I’ve been honest. You are morbidly religious about Android to the point of mouth foaming rabid.

            Apple is a hugely successful company making premium products for premium customers at premium prices and nothing you can say changes that. And Apple will continue to be the Number One company making the most money and best devices. You may continue on your cheaptard ways and keep thinking market share, cheap phones, being taken for a data mine ride by Google and loving fragmentation (37% KitKat to 92% iOS7 in U.S.) are the only things that matter. So long prime loser!

            Screens as big as the iphone 6 [2012]

            Screens with double the resolution of the iphone 6 [2013]

            Being able to pay by using your phone [apple Pay] [2011]

            Wireless charging not yet – iphone 7? [2012]

            All irrelevant. Apple is ascendant. Apple is superior in an overall ecosystem way. Apple already has Samsung on the run. Look at their pathetic ads. They can’t talk about anything great on Android so they resort to disingenuously insulting Apple since they have nothing left to argue the point, just like YOU.

            cnbc_DOT_com/id/102001385

            When others shortsightedly race to the bottom, Apple always wins.

            Google launches $105 Android One; eyes low-price smartphone boom
            reuters_DOT_com/article/2014/09/15/google-india-smartphone-idUSL3N0RG24L20140915

            Android is pushed to users who are, in general:
            a) confused about why they should be choosing an iPhone over an inferior knockoff and therefore might be less prone to understand/explore their devices’ capabilities or trust their devices with credit card info for shopping; and/or
            b) enticed with “Buy One Get One Free,” “Buy One, Get Two or More Free,” or similar offers.

            Neither type of customer is the cream of the crop when it comes to successful engagement or coveted demographics; closer to the bottom of the barrel than the top, in fact. Android can be widespread and still demographically inferior precisely because of the way in which and to whom Android devices are marketed. Unending BOGO promos attract a seemingly unending stream of cheapskate freetards just as inane, pointless TV commercials about robots or blasting holes in concrete walls attract meatheads and dullards, not exactly the best demographics unless you’re peddling muscle-building powders or grease monkey overalls.

            Google made a crucial mistake: They gave away Android to “partners” who pushed and continue to push the product into the hands of the exact opposite type of user that Google needs for Android to truly thrive. Hence, Android is a backwater of second-rate, or worse, app versions that are only downloaded when free or ad-supported – but the Android user is notoriously cheap, so the ads don’t sell for much because they don’t work very well. You’d have guessed that Google would have understood this, but you’d have guessed wrong.

            Google built a platform that depends heavily on advertising support, but sold it to the very type of customer who’s the least likely to patronize ads.

            iOS users are the ones who buy apps, so developers focus on iOS users. iOS users buy products, so accessory makers focus on iOS users. iOS users have money and the proven will to spend it, so vehicle makers focus on iOS users. Etcetera. Android can have the “Hee Haw” demographic. Apple doesn’t want it or need it; it’s far more trouble than it’s worth.

            Apple will soon see idiots like you disappear as you run out of inane-munition. Apple phone share will take a dramatic turn upward in market share for premium phones (not the cheapskate bottom of the barrel models you buy since you can’t afford anything else with your hairnet job).

            You know what “peerless” means? It means it has no equivalent in the Shamdung or any OTHER Android manufacturers product line. MUAHAHA!!!!

            “Don’t settle for less than the best. With Apple’s all new, 64-bit smartphones, the gorgeous 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and the stunning 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus, there’s never been a better time to stop settling for imitations and make to move the the real thing.”

            “When others shortsightedly race to the bottom, Apple always wins.”

            Nice, you have realized that apple has won the race to the bottom of the pile [with an 11.9% share].

          • PeterBlood

            Apple has won the race to the top of profit share moron. Businesses like to make MONEY. It ain’t got that swing on market share alone.

            * Over $600 Billion market cap – World’s Most Valuable Company
            * 4 million pre-sold iPhone 6 phones – IN ONE DAY!!
            * The envy of the industry as millions clamor for their product
            * Near $200 Billion in the bank
            * Apple Pay – a new service that will run rings around Google Wallet
            * New product watch which will be the industry leader and sell multi-millions in 2015
            * Etc., etc. etc.

            As Charlie Brown was saying “You got a rock.” Android is flying on fumes and your hot air.

            You don’t see how bad apple is. You also don’t see all the advantages that Android has given the cell phone industry for 3 years now like:

            Screens as big as the iphone 6 [2012]

            Screens with double the resolution of the iphone 6 [2013]

            Being able to pay by using your phone [apple Pay] [2011]

            Wireless charging not yet – iphone 7? [2012]

            Aftermarket keyboards like the iphone 6 [2010]

            NFC swiping not yet – iphone 7? [2011]

            Cutting edge iphones? Yeah, right….

            Android =

            * 32-bit Ancient Antique Dealer chips (Apple’s had 64 bit for a year now)

            * 99% malware rate of all smart phones

            * Poor OS fragmentation – Kitkat 4.4 only runs on 1 in 5 Android phones (iOS7 92%)

            * Apps not as high a quality as their iOS counterparts

            * Developers not as attracted to Android because of so many OS versions to test

            * Poor implementation of services like Google Wallet which have mostly been ignored by users and the industry. Not as trusted as Apple’s Pay will be.

            * Google data mines as many Android owners as possible and uses/sells their data

            * Android ecosystem is clunky and scattered

            * Android interface not as polished as iOS

            * New apps usually come out on iOS first (Developers know where their bread is buttered most)

            * Built-in technology (like Bluetooth) doesn’t work as well as iOS or at least not as consistently.

            * Poorer picture quality – megapixels is not the best judge of great picture quality.

            * Android switchers to iOS discover what a superior & smoother product the iPhone actually is.

            Steve Jobs: February 24, 1955 – October 5, 2011
            He believed that his company could heal him.

          • PeterBlood

            He believed in more holistic natural approaches instead of the surgery he should have. When you’re dealing with pancreatic cancer you don’t mess around. But you deal everyday with your own stupidity yet you’re still alive. Amazing.

          • StanS

            That worked well for him, didn’t it? So did small screens, and no NFC, wireless charging, LTE and voice calls at the same time, the list goes on.
            And you call me stupid, but you have lost to me on every attempt that you have made to best me. That makes you bested by an:
            A: advanced Android owner
            B: stupid, slow, idiot, fool
            Either way, you like Steve Jobs, have failed. Just figure out who you would rather lose to.

          • PeterBlood

            Steve made a mistake about his personal health but he always did have some different views about it but that was just how he live his personal life. I suspect you spend lots of time at Burger King & McDonalds which you shouldn’t either.

            Hardware is not the be all and end all whether Apple or Android is first. There are plenty of other considerations like ecosystem. But you’re far too immature to understand that. Spectacularly like a 9 year old. The fact you feel you best anything or anyone is laughable because of your basic clodhopper buffoonery and lack of basic understanding. You can have Android, third best, just like you as a human being.

            Failed? Tell that to the billions flowing into the Apple bank right now idiot. Apple is expected to have an amazing year and my stock is worth a fortune. But I would guess you don’t have much in your van down by the river except unfortunately an Internet connection.

          • StanS

            You must like being beaten by a 9 year old. You keep coming back for more
            Steve failed more times than he succeeded, but you keep apple floating by investing money for second rate, old ideas. Apples killed Steve, not McDonalds, perhaps Steve would be alive today if he wasn’t such a pansy.

          • PeterBlood

            So now you’re repeating my statements about you? How droll and unimaginative. Better get back to your Playskool video gaming junior where at least you’re a better match at the 4th grade level.

            Like you have a long list of anyone who’s done more than Apple and Steve Jobs who make billions with a handful of devices:

            Apple transformed and reinvented:
            * Computers – the Mac
            * Music players – the iPod
            * Smart Phones – the iPhone
            * Tablets – the iPad

          • PeterBlood

            Plagiarists implies simple copying. Apple doesn’t copy like Samsung & Google do. They reinvent devices into something new we haven’t seen before adding plenty in the process.

            So you point only to the Apple products that failed or were special edition mostly when Steve Jobs was not CEO? I’m afraid Google and Microsoft both are littered with far more failures, as is Samsung dopey. How about we compare successes azzhole?

            Those figures are meaningless, as is your argument. What does Google make yet they are behind Apple who sells things [after they plagiarize them]. I still have you scrambling for proof of those statements which you have made. Where is all this malware you tout as being out there? 5 years ago apple had a huge share of the smartphone market, but in 5 years they have lost most of it. I see why you are sooooooo bitter against Android. Plus Android as an OS is advancing and their phones are putting a bigger hit on apple, to gain a greater market share.

            thenextweb dot com
            Report: Android reached record 85% smartphone market share in Q2 2014, Xiaomi now fifth-largest vendor

            Market research firm Strategy Analytics has put out new numbers for the second quarter of 2014 that estimate the Android platform’s share of the global market at a record 84.6 percent.

            Strategy Analytics reported 295.2 million smartphone shipments during the period, just 0.1 million off from IDC’s number. Growth seems to have tapered off, with the firm recording the market’s slowest growth level in five years.

            Android widened its lead on all its competitors. The share of Apple iOS reportedly fell from 13.4 percent a year ago to 11.9 percent, while Microsoft dropped from 3.8 percent to 2.7 percent, and BlackBerry shrunk from 2.4 percent to 0.6 percent.

            Strategy Analytics also put out a separate report detailing the breakdown of how smartphone brands performed in Q2 2014.

            Your mind is meaningless. I reported the industry facts you refuse to acknowledge being one of the plainly stupidest individuals it’s been my displeasure to converse with (as you would to a child) on the Internet.

            God you are totally pathetic. It’s been reported for some time that of all smart phone malware Android has 99% of it:

            99% of mobile malware targeted Android devices last year
            bgr_DOT_com/2014/01/21/android-mobile-malware-report/

            I believe I already said Apple had 11-12% worldwide market share. Congrats on being able to Google at last. But you have no gotcha moments here. Apple is still selling phones as fast as they can make them and iPhone 6 will pull a lot of people back over from the Android camp. And I mentioned Xiaomi is kicking Samsung’s behind. You don’t listen very well because of the voices in your head.

            Obviously you know nothing about the smart phone market. It has continued to grow for everyone. Apple is selling more iPhones than ever since people are buying more phones than ever. The demand has not slipped at all, it has steadily increased regardless of market share numbers. They have a hard time keeping up with the demand as it is. No way could Apple alone (or ANY one company) supply 100% of the world demand. So fortunately losers like you can use second and third tier inferior phones since it matches your own inferior make and status as a human as well. You should also pick up a Windows 8 Phone to make your failure as a choice maker complete.

            Also you disingenuously attempt to paint all this at a time when Apple is just introducing new larger iPhones (and new and better services that will actually be accepted by the market unlike horrible sounding crass dreck like “Google Wallet”) and so Android now has ZERO perceived advantages.

            We’ll see what happens to the premium Android market next year as a result. I’m betting it won’t be pretty. You’ll be the last dufus standing I can predict holding a sad little BOGOF Android phone.

            11-12% Worldwide Apple iPhone market share (Huge percentage of Android phones sold are cheap knock-offs. Samsung’s marketshare decreased from 32.2 percent in 2013 to 24.9 percent in 2014 as China brands, etc. undermine their low end. Apple is attacking their high end.)
            60% Apple worldwide profit share from all smart phones
            43.9% Apple worldwide web usage market share
            52.3% Apple U.S. web usage market share but levels of traffic generated by Samsung smartphones remain significantly lower than the traffic generated by Apple iPhones @ 26.4%. iPhone 6 is expected to boost this percentage even higher for Apple.

            Samsung has a shrinking worldwide share (losing 7% from the year previously) of only 25% which includes their entire cheap to premium phones and Apple still makes far more money than they do. Doesn’t that send you into an apoplectic fit? Doesn’t that reel your world?

            You quote current numbers. Those numbers will change in the premium end with the iPhone 6 – continue to watch. As I said Apple is not interested in the race to the bottom.

          • PeterBlood

            Yeah Apple sucks with selling more and more phones than ever & hardly able to keep up with demand, near a couple hundred billion in the bank, status as the WORLD’S MOST VALUABLE COMPANY worth $600+ BILLION, HOT selling new 64-bit Touch sensor iPhones that rival Android now in size (Android’s ONLY previous advantage), New pay service that will kill Google’s early but not best attempts, new watch that will sell millions next year, etc. etc. etc..

            All you clueless idiot Fandroid ever clue into is mindless market share and THAT is why you FAIL. Success is measured in a great product making lots of money and in that Android is only second best.

            You don’t see the failed and poor implementations Android has dummy. Apple does it successfully. The Android Emperor has no clothes. It was only a matter to time before Apple made larger phones and truly clean Android’s clock. Larger or smaller sizes are not innovation so much as desperation in Samsung’s case. And now they’re lost.

            You don’t understand at all it’s irrelevant to be first. Much more important to be BEST. Apple is best. They had one recent misstep with Apple Maps (they should have called it a Beta) but now it’s better than ever. I hardly use anything Google related anymore – no need to.

            People who still use the word and tired cliche “kool-aid” (or should I say “Kruel-aid”) have been sipping it by the gallons since they were born. It’s why your brains have been burned out & depleted.

            What about the iphone with no cell coverage? You couldn’t hold the phone up to your face without it losing it’s signal.

            “Apple is best. They had one recent misstep with Apple Maps (they should have called it a Beta) but now it’s better than ever.” Better than a complete failure is still failing.

            You’ve had crappy tech and mostly just a larger phone with no real advantages, only delusionary ones. And now you have no ‘size’ clothes to hide the mediocrity behind. Meet your Destroyer:

            Google plagiarized iPhone. I wouldn’t be talking if I were you.

          • guest

            I don’t know where you are getting your facts but I checked yahoo finance and on September 2 2014 Google’s stock was $577.33 and Apple’s stock was $103.3. So unless Yahoo is lying to me and a few other sites like CNN Money and NasDaq then you don’t know how to find information or you are lying. Please correct me if I’m wrong on how to use Yahoo Finance to find information on what stock prices were in the past. Also if I am correct take your lies about stock on companies somewhere else. I prefer to have facts in an argument than lies and slander. If you would like to start using facts and have a logical argument I am ready whenever you are.

          • PeterBlood

            I’ll try and be kind here since you are obviously not very stock savvy. Apple just split their stock 7 to 1. Stock price is not an indicator between Apple and Google and tells you nothing about their relative worth by itself. Market cap is though. Look at ALL the Yahoo Finance information.

            As of today (this fluctuates depending on stock price) Google is worth 387.6 Billion whereas Apple is worth $608.5 Billion.

            Unlike Fandroid (desperate to conclude everything is working in their favor) I have no need to lie about it since this can be checked readily by anyone. All these figures are at anyone’s beck and call so there’s no point in trying to deceive. As I said I don’t lie, I always try to use up to date information. (Opinions about products are another thing altogether.)

            You shouldn’t make such automatic negative assumptions just because it’s not something you want to hear. Kapeesh?

          • jay

            you just get dumb and dumber don’t you?

          • jay

            Because McDonald’s is a lot healthier than fruit right?

          • jay

            Steve Jobs is listed as one of the greatest people of all time. NO ONE at google will ever be on one of those lists.

            Apple and Apricot seeds cure cancer while chemotherapy kills within 6 months. Western medicine and being exposed to carcinogens early in life killed him.

            But you’re just a Fandroid and research has shown that you are not well educated so I don’t expect you to understand any of this.

  • Nkansah Rexford

    In light of these stats (on paper stats though), I tend to ask myself this whenever I see someone using iPhone:

    “On what basics, with what reason, did he or she buy this iPhone? Was it because he or she has money more than I do, doesn’t know what to look for in a phone, or is just interested in being locked down?

    Or on the other hand, am I being the dump guy following Android blindly?”

    How could you release a phone with less than 2k battery juice? Its like intentionally making a plane that is designed to traveled half the average distance of planes today.

    Forget about optimizations. What is the mistake in putting in a 3.2k battery juice and appending optimizations on top? Would 3-5 days battery life not be achieved?

    Why is Apple always trying to be stingy and punishing their users by always depriving them of what’s cool and nice? What do they do with all the money they get? Their products are mind blowingly expensive, so what is going on?

    Looking at how flexible I want my use of phone to be, I can’t use iOS for probably a day, as I’ll either send it for a refund or just sell it.

    That’s me, but I find it a nightmare when I see people using iPhone and end up complaining some Google apps features should come to iOS as early as possible, meanwhile, Apple themselves gives them features after the features are no news.

    Dang, Apple!

    • Andrew T Roach

      If you give someone a device that they are 100% satisfied with: What is the incentive to upgrade?

      Smartphone makers aren’t into making devices that last forever. Its bad for business.

    • [email protected]

      apple blows their money on marketing, and research and development, in that order from highest to lowest. That’s why they are marked up so high. BoM never amounts to retail price.

  • Andrew T Roach

    It’s obvious when reading the article that I know more than this guy about mobile SoC’s.

    “Apple does optimize its OS to work (to a point) with lesser specs, but we still can’t help but think that a beefier CPU, GPU and more RAM would make a noticeable difference nonetheless.”

    “It’s 2014 after all, and dual-core/1GB-RAM setups seem more than a little dated.”

    Those are some gems there. More cores + more Ghz is all that matters right? RAM takes power you know? Why add more when iOS freezes apps? Spec sheet bragging?

    Denver K1 is ARMv8 and Dual-Core, and that’s hands down the best and only custom design to come out of Android since Krait. And it hasn’t released yet. Samsung just released their first 64bit ARMv8 device a full year behind using stock ARM cores. Snapdragon is 3 years old and Qualcomm is switching to stock ARM cores to compete with low cost SoC vendors.

    There’s room to criticize Apple on many of its design and software choices, but the work it’s done on its custom SoC’s aren’t one of them.

  • Absurde

    Finaly Apple made a phone that is equal to Samsing Galaxy S2, 4.7 inch screen, 8mp camera dual core cpu 1gb ram…

    • yep

      but specs arent everything!!!! – says every appleFAG.

      course they can’t have things like widgets, multitasking, multiwindow, incredible amount of customization, etc. with their little dual cores and 1gb ram.

    Your 1st chart of comparisons list the z3 compact screen as 5.2, it’s actually 4.6. Actually the whole line of the z3 has been copy paste for the z3 compact. Just a small edit, but can help avoid confusion for some and accuracy for future

  • Caman

    iSheep? Really? Why is it necessary to put people down just because they do walk the same path as you do?
    I never have understood that. To me it’s way better to be happy for what others like, for their sake,
    than to be sarcastic and even hateful over people choice that doesn’t correspond with mine.

    • yep

      hey, you mind shutting your stupid.fucking face? thanks biatch.

      • Caman

        I presume that was meant to make me feel bad. Yes, absolutely, spot on, I feel bad for you, wee one, that doesn’t know how to use capitalisation, how to construct sentences nor how to spell properly. Maybe a few night classes could solve that conundrum.

        • yep

          hahaha, you don’t even understand why there’s a period in there do you? That’s the sad part.

          Capitalisation isn’t even how you spell it, fag. But I’m the one who doesn’t know how to spell.

          And I’m so sorry, i didn’t know comments sections needed 100% proper grammar, retard. See, I spelled grammar correctly. But you couldn’t spell capitalization right. You are the typical iWhore.

          • Caman

            From Cambridge Dictionaries Online: English definition of “capitalization”
            capitalization
            noun UK (UK usually capitalisation) /ˌkæp.ɪ.təl.aɪˈzeɪ.ʃən/ US /-t̬əl-/

          • yep

            Hahaha. Thats worse than liking apple, you’re british. I feel so bad for you.

          • Caman

            Well, wrong again, so you are. I might know how to spell, except for ad to which I added and d too many, but I make no claims to be a dictionary. Thus, UK is a reference to the English in question, not to my nationality. As I understand it; Using swearwords and insults in a conversation is a way to hide a rather crippled and substandard vocabulary of a feebleminded individual. Is that painful to you, living such a substandard life, or do you simply not notice that yourself?

            Fuck off nigger

          • Caman

            Oh, here comes the redneck. Well, that was no surprise at all. Maybe I should lower myself to your standard and put it in a way that you would understand. Go and fuck yourself, you little shit, you cock-sucking mother fucker. You inbreed dad should have pulled out before impregnating your fucking grandmother, so the world didn’t have to have you in it, you spawn of Satan. Buy a pig or fuck a relative, but that’s probably the same thing for you. I have more and better thing to do than to hang here. I’m not a sad, lonely, get, stupid, moron who can’t even get laid by the alcoholic village fool that you so much long to have doing you up the arse. I have a life, so I’m not suicidal like you. Did I bully you at school? Is that why you try to take a swing on me online, instead being a man and face me in real life, you fucking little creep. And you think I really care what you write here, cry baby. Whawhawha. Sob, sob, sob loser. Hahahahahahahahahaha. Burn, you asshole, who care about you. Now call your mum and ask if she need a fuck. Only one dumb enough to fuck you, with you tiny little baby dick. Or is she out making change trying to do a few blow jobs again? You sad, poor cracka. hahahahahahahaha

          • yep

            lol, obviously you do care what i write or you wouldn’t waste so much of your life writing article long replies. get over yourself, Jew.

          • yep

            You know a lot about those things, you do don’t you. I’m sorry, but I have to let you down, since my sexual orientation doesn’t correspond with yours. I solely have an interest in women.

    Apple doesnt innovate anything… everything feature/product that apple released isnt something new… they just know what their users want and throws it into a package then calls it a day…

    • PeterBlood

      Spoken like a true Fandroid Goober dufus.

  • Jamal Adam

    Lets be honest, for years, Apple has been telling everyone that one size fits all but not finally that have admitted that they have been wrong all along and that one size doesn’t fit all.

    • PeterBlood

      Apple’s first iPhone was among the biggest out at that time. True the company probably waited one year too long to come out with a larger phone but it’s here and wonderful, totally outclassing the Android IMHO and the many rave reviews by prominent reviewers and sites. (Even Steve Wozniak is dumping his Android phones enthusiastically for iPhone 6.)

      It’s not a right or wrong issue, it’s a marketing issue. (And size is not an innovation.) In the past the design would have been to make devices more miniaturized but obviously now a larger screen design with just more stuff packed inside seems to be the more popular approach (though there are people who will still prefer smaller 4″ phones).

      Even if Steve Jobs had lived he would have changed his mind about phone size (as he did about other things in the past), especially now being able to add features that makes it better than it would have been a few years ago. The time is now ripe for a larger Apple iPhone and they will make a killing. The market is seeing many switchers from Android too.

      • jay

        Correct The original iPhone was criticized for being too big in a time when flip phones were racing to be smaller. Remember the movie Zoolander?

        • PeterBlood

          Gotta love the size irony yeah since Apple was criticized for “being too small” later.

          And now people just gotta exercise a modicum of care with any smart phone by not sitting carelessly on the largest ones. No portable device is invulnerable, nor can it hold up to rampant abuse being dropped, sat on, etc.. Sheesh.

  • Milk

    (This comment is not to offend any Apple or Android users/fans, but for those who have the need to feel superior and bring others down. My intention of writing this is not to attack Android/Apple users. I hope I have not offend much people. But if you understand what I have written, its not about using Android or Apple products. Its about your attitude towards others)

    Wow, I can’t imagine you guys would be so disrespectful. I think end up it all comes down to personal preference. Why do you have to make it sound like those who buy Apple sound like rich, spoiled or stupid?

    I will admit that Im using an iPhone 5 now. I have also used an Android based smartphone (Sony Xperia S) too. If possible I would like the best of both worlds, I can afford it both but I don’t see the point of having two smartphones and buying another tablet.

    You know what is more hilarious? Still having to see people like you appear all over the internet for the battle of Apple and Android fans, making one another sounding like retards who wasn’t educated well enough by your parents. Such arrogant. distasteful, disrespectful and closed-minded attitudes.

    So, is that all you can say about iPhone users? They think highly of themselves because they can afford an expensive but low-spec premium smartphone? Is that the only point you guys ever can emphasize on? Come on man, what century are you in? Then how about you Android users, I can say then why do you have to be so down right technical and compare everything single thing you see? Why are you so fussy? Is it the need for you to compensate about something you are lacking or feeling inferior to? Therefore needing to flame other users and highlighting your own advantages every single moment?

    Do you use all and every single special functions that Android has to offer and all the time?

    I’m just so tired of seeing people arguing over this matter time after time.

    As I said, its all comes down to PERSONAL PERFERENCE.

    But I do agree on your point that Apple does outright overcharge their phones.

    Thank you all for your time and have a nice day =).

  • peace

    please people. Stop attacking people who doesn’t agree with your point. Android and Apple are equally good. It’s all depends on personal experience towards the product. By the way, good specs or lots of function doesn’t mean good. It’s only good if those functionality suits you. Peace.

  • Darcy Hart

    Apple know exactly what they’re doing. They know that software development doesn’t move forward until the market leader does, because of this Apple doesn’t need to full heavy hardware. Instead they give just enough to ticket the market, and nothing more.

  • Will Maitner

    I love reading the Android boards comments about the iPhone 6. They don’t realize the issue here. iPhone wins for the simple fact that it is designed hardware and software together. They are not designing hardware after the fact for software already developed. This is why a 1.4ghz dual core processor with 1gb of ram outclasses these 2.3ghz quad core processor/3gb ram Android flagships. You talk about things that don’t matter and totally miss how badly Android is spanked by iOS.

  • evelluchia

    my personal opinion about the whole apple and droid war is this I have an iPhone and a Samsung galaxy tablet with the really great amoled screen but honestly I like the two just fine but when it comes to resorce management and stability ios has it because its the same OS across all devices like android should have been instead of the manufacturers playing and messing with the os and sticking all kinds of needless bloatware in the os making updates slower to get for some devices im not trying to take sides I like both ios and android just the same apple has the advantage of the 64 bit addressing and instructionsets but lack the amount of ram to take full benefits of the capabilities of the 64 bit arcatecture namely the 32 bit 3GB ram cap (still an issue with ARM chips) apple could have used the 64 bit to bump the ram to a lot higher levels but theres one thing apple has dome to beat the droids and that’s true multiprocessor resorce management with the smaller coprocessor to handle the mitpicky stuff like manageing resources thus freeing up the full main processor for the user verses the droids using the main processor for all tasks with some exceptions regarding the NVidia tegra based devices (excellent processor BTW and definetly very capeable) but the tegra still doesent do the same as the apple setup of having the OS resorce management and system management on a sepret processor and giving full main chip bandwidth to the user on top of having a dedicated GPU core androids use the main prosessor in most devices to do all these tasks that’s why the lower specs of the apple device can still hold its own in a market of supposedly faster devices (im not an apple fangirl but I do notis the attention that apple pays to the actual practicality of the device over the game of who ever has the most gadgets and toys wins) like I said before I like my Samsung galaxy tab a lot with its quadcore its a great tablet (aside from that total PITA usb port that tends to break bricking loads of droid devices) apple has definetly got a leg up there with a very reliable port that’s noron proof and a lot less prone to damage verses the nano USB port used on everything these days that if you brethe on it wrong it brakes and also all the loose fitting cables that the cheap Chinese cables fit better then the OEMs lean me more tawards apple with the lightning port being it holds the cables better and the idea of as long as it goes in the port it works theres no up side down (a new USB port for the USB 3.1 standard will be a lot like the lightning port) all devices have their drawbacks and highlites like apple having a more user friendly port, better system management and one OS for all mobile devices and android with better gadgets displays and quicker and more veriety of hardware (tegra and snapdragon chips being the two most popular) as well as more features across devices but they have their short commings too like apples closed system, slower older hardware, and being slow to add new goodies and android with the devices USB ports being very fragile and poor fitting, (had to get the port replaced 2 times on my tablet and I don’t toss it around ot jam the cable in or anything) androids stability is often a pitfall and also a lot of android devices having poor built in and headphone volume just the name a cupple for each they are all great devices and very impressive in their own ways but they will never all be perfect apple does have higher build quality them amny android devices but theres plenty of droids that are made very well (newer sony experia Z series for example are made very well and feel like they are made to last) while Samsung while having a lot of great features and really wonderful displays (I love the amoled displays they are simply incredible for watching videos and movies or playing games on) are not built with the same quality and deurability as apple or the sony (Samsung is really well known for the ports to break rendering the device useless till repared you can have all the fancy gadgets and goodies you want but if the quality isent there its not going to last as well as the slower but better built device this droid vs apple war is beond stuped its all dihard OS lovers butting heads just get the device you like and deal with it I like both I also like windows phone 8.1 its definetly different and uneque from the rest of the crowed and also surprisingly stable and quick and responcive pitty there isent a lot of apps for it

  • Mighty Shepherd

    Theres a sweet spot for megapixel vs sensor size and Apple found it. Forget 16-24 megapixel on a tiny sensor it will just produce more noise and artifacts.

    As for CPU/RAM No matter what spec Android you have, the OS is batsh#t

    Sorry but after using both Apple and Android, Apple OS wins hands down.

  • Cole

    What you didn’t mention was that the whole idea of the modern smartphone and the modern computer were both apples. Also Android shipped out there first modern smartphone a year after the first iPhone and it was a complete joke. Plus apple pay is way more convenient than the PayPal thingy. And apple put a fingerprint sensor in their phone before android. Also the apple watch, though more expensive, wrecks the competition. And saying haha Steve is dead is horrible Steve jobs changed the world.

  • Goos

    Icrap 6 Is the ugliest phone I’ve ever seen and the priciest, it has the worst performance/price ratio from all the phones the world.

        Fandroid in denial is delicious to watch. Laughable as the iPhone 6 gets rave reviews all around so naturally clueless Android fans have to pretend it’s junk so their world doesn’t fall apart. Defend your rationalization biases at any price, including credibility. Hilarious buffoons. You can have your Google data mining & tracking, fragmentation, scattered ecosystem, sub-quality apps, malware, poorly refined UI, etc. You more than deserve each other being a perfect match of mediocre examples of people & devices in general.

          Pretty heavy rambling from a delusional idiot who thinks ! GB of ram is worthy of a 2014 flagship phone. Good luck with that. I got an idea, why don’t you waddle on over to your local flea market and pick yourself up a used Galaxy Note 2. The Note 2 has better specs than this latest abortion of a phone from apple and will save you some big bucks.

          • PeterBlood

            Hmmm you seem to be the same kind of person you accuse me to be. But of course you expect that from the clueless Fandroid breed. Jealous much? Apple iOS is a much more efficient and consistent OS than your piece of clunktastic code nightmare. That’s your problem Bunkie all you think about is in terms of specs (sorry you don’t get a serial port or floppy drive too). I want overall excellence and great execution in ecosystem. Spoken like a true clueless geektard. Maybe someday you’ll be a member of the 64-bit club but by that time will anybody be buying Androids? Have fun with your 32-bit Antique Dealer phone and dwindling premium Android market share!

          • Jerry Rich

            When you said, “I want overall excellence and great execution in ecosystem”, were you talking about a phone that will bend when placed in your pocket?

          • PeterBlood

            I was waiting for this idiot style ignorant comment. You mean bend like ALL phones and devices do?

            Did you know (apparently NOT) Samsung is NOT making the A8 chip designed by Apple (TSMC is) and after a year still has no 64-bit chip for it’s Android phones, you misinformed pathetic mindlessly aping Fandreck moron?

            Here’s the Fandroid recipe for iPhone FUD:

            1. Identify an issue that all other smartphones have (i.e. cellular antenna attenuation, screens that can be scratched with materials that are harder than the screen, metal casing that can be scratched with materials that are harder than the metal casing, phishing easily-guessed passwords from people who fail to utilize two-factor and other provided protections to obtain photos taken with smartphones from online storage, metal cases that bend under extreme force, etc.) or concoct an issue which has no factual basis at all (i.e. iPhone 5c, which outsold all other non-iPhones on the planet, is a “failure.”)

            2. Important: Pretend that issue is only attributable to Apple’s iPhone. Feign “concern.”

            3. Make goofy videos using iPhone only to illustrate this issue THAT ALL OTHER SMARTPHONES HAVE. Continue to feign “concern.”

            4. Blow said issue wildly out of proportion via the media echo chamber with much wringing of hands.

            5. After Apple’s iPhone destroys you in premium smartphone sales, wonder why your iPhone FUD failed yet again.

            I can’t wait to hear your wild excuses and pathetic rebuttal now that you’re cornered.

          • Jerry Rich

            Calm down peetee, no reason to go ballistic. 1st you should check into that A8 thing before making a bigger ifool of yourself. If you google a8 and Samsung, you’ll see what macworld among others are saying. On the apple bending fiasco, watch the follow up video on youtube where the guy tries to bend a Note 3. Bottom line is you have done no research, have a distorted view of the quality of your favorite brand and are content to live in your fantasy world. #bendgate

          • PeterBlood

            You do the same thing. Samsung is not making the majority of A8 chips, just 40% and soon 0%. You’re being stupid. Any phone will bend and Android phones bend and crack/break easier too. S5 has a poorer rating in this regard. Your research sucks and as always inadequate and a match to your poor thinking in general. Fantasy world is a state of mind you’re all too familiar with. You know you got nothing, just don’t want to admit it.

          • Jerry Rich

            No peetee you’re wrong again. I see you did what I asked, google a little bit before making stuff up. You see now that I was right about Samsung making a8 chips for your under powered icrap. You need to keep googling and you’ll find that not all phones will bend while in your front pocket. Only apple i6 phones do. I think it’s caused by too many recycled beer cans in the aluminum apple uses. Seems like a big problem to me and it’s getting bigger by the hour. It’s not too late to do the smart thing and preorder the Note 4.

          • PeterBlood

            No JR I’m not. You were wrong. You implied Samsung made all their A8 chips. They didn’t bunkie. TSMC was supposed to make all of them, a situation that will be corrected in the future. Apple has been in the process for years of shutting out Shamsucks.

            Under Powered? Says who? 64-bit, 30% faster apps with iOS which is a more efficient OS optimizing the hardware with the software (the advantages of a vertical system) than that Qualcomm crap you use that’s all over the map. You’re higher RAM (needed I guess due to Android OS deficiencies) actually also will slow your system down depending. Apple has surpassed your lousy quad core performance. 6 & 6 Plus outperform most Android phones. You lose.

            iPhones aren’t bending in people’s pockets without a reason and certainly not a trend as much as you desperately want it to be. A non-issue trumped up by the usual desperate Fandroid mental breakdown. I think it’s caused by too many Twinkies dipped in lead paint & mercury. Android phones by far crack and have durability issues (like Fandroid). And you can’t fix “cheapskate” even if your last name is “Rich” and your pretty rich all right.

            All Fandroid are now certifiable dwindling market share laughingstocks. Stop embarrassing yourself. It’s not too late to order a iPhone 6 Plus and rectify your losing ways. Though certainly there should be ample supply of Note 4’s gathering dust in the warehouse or being used as door stops. Or maybe sold as easy-bendable toys at Toys R’ Us.

            This is so great. I can tell you know you’ve lost the war and it feels so GOOD watching you try to make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear. Now all we need is Samsung’s failure to be complete by ghost town blowing tumbleweed, passing wind Note 4 sales. (Watch how they won’t report how many are actually sold like Apple does because that would give away their epic FAIL.)

            peetee, look up the definition of “implied”, and re-read my posts. You’re conception of your beloved icrap is truly misguided. All of your facts came out of your butt, they are not true and and you’re too lazy to research them. The latest crop of apple phones are not better made or faster than the current group of Android flagships. That is a fact. Look it up. The 6+ does bend in peoples pockets and it is a trend. I have read more than one review where lag has been detected on the iphone 6. So you really have no clue as to what you’re talking about and no one should pay you any attention.

            I did, that’s why I used the word implied.

            You have an overinflated idea of the complete crap Android ecosystem you use to the point of lunacy. Typical Fandroid delusion. Millions of people who no longer have to compromise are switching from Android to Apple and I know that eats at you. You desperately cling to a deeply flawed platform who little redeeming value except to geeks without much of a life.

            Apple iPhones are faster than Android, get over it. Proven. Next. You can protest all you like ’til the cows come home and you’d still be wrong.

            If bending was as big an issue as you like to pretend it would be a debilitating PR problem. But it isn’t, because you’re wrong. Isolated incidents at best. NOT a trend. What’s a trend is Fandroid loving little problems and pumping them up out of all recognition like the clueless bumpkins they are.

            You really ought to see a shrink as your mind is severely impaired and cannot discern anything resembling reality.

            Here’s the disingenuous Fandroid recipe for iPhone FUD:

            1. Identify an issue that all other smartphones have (i.e. cellular antenna attenuation, screens that can be scratched with materials that are harder than the screen, metal casing that can be scratched with materials that are harder than the metal casing, phishing easily-guessed passwords from people who fail to utilize two-factor and other provided protections to obtain photos taken with smartphones from online storage, metal cases that bend under extreme force, etc.) or concoct an issue which has no factual basis at all (i.e. iPhone 5c, which outsold all other non-iPhones on the planet, is a “failure.”)

            2. Important: Pretend that issue is only attributable to Apple’s iPhone. Feign “concern.”

            3. Make goofy videos using iPhone only to illustrate this issue that all other smartphones have. Continue to feign “concern.”

            4. Blow said issue wildly out of proportion via the media echo chamber with much wringing of hands.

            5. After Apple’s iPhone destroys you in premium smartphone sales, wonder why your iPhone FUD failed yet again.

            Apple iPhone record sales will continue apace as Samsung Note 4 is about to get a dose of the new market reality. Dyed-in-the-wool Samsung shills like Jerry Rich will desperately continue to try to flog the FUD ad nauseum, but will be unsuccessful.

    I’m a tech guy. I own Apple products such as Macbook Pro, iMAC, iPhone 4 & 5 I also currently own a Samsung S-4. I feel that I can share my unbiased opinion on how I feel about Android vs iPhone. I enjoyed the experience of owning my iPhone. It felt good in my hand and was always responsive. Never had to reboot due to freezing. As for my Samsung S-4, it is a better phone in some ways than the iPhone 4 or 5. The screen resolution and pictures were way better. The feel and response was not. There were some apps that I just could not get from Apple, like a WiFi Analyzer tool. I must say the details that seperate the two platforms aren’t very important. It really comes down to some people like the feel of the iPhone and some people like the specs and diversity they get from Android. Lets not act like iPhone is not a good product. The truth is I enjoyed my iPhone 4 for 3 years and never had one issue with it and I can’t say that about any other phone I have owned. Android is cool and if you are doing great things with their platform than good for you, but I think hating on people just because they like an American made product like Apple isn’t being fair. I like both products and if you are truly a tech person you would find the greatness and ingenuity in both platforms.

    I am an android owner and love my samsung s5. However, there is something the iPhone has been doing forever that android can’t, and that is having a phone conversation, check your calendar and / or messages and / or email all at the same time. With my samsung, it’s a one thing at a time machine:(

    “…could give it a tiny edge…” I have begun to detest Apple haters as much as I do Android bashers… your objectivity is non-existent, and your command of facts misses all kinds of key nuances about Apple’s products. A straight side-by-side comparison isn’t the full story. But you know that already, and chose not to mention any of that stuff… lol.

    I still prefer android over iOS.I am using iPhone 6 but i really love HTC ONE M8.It is the best phone ever without a doubt

  • john harris

    Reality Bites !! The iPhone’s resale value holds as high as 80% after a year.

    android samsung?? nahhh… buy a samsung in the morning (full Price) if you sell it in the afternoon.. its value is equivalent to a primary school calculator.

    no class, no character, no value….and the customer service and repair time frame is horrible……..

    The thing I like about android most is its customizability. Things like launchers, ànd live wallpapers. apps like noyze, go locker, pie controls, and multitasking. If you want the iPhone look but android flexibility you can do that. I set it up for my sisters, and although not the brightest, a lot of the people at my school thought I had iOS on my s4. These are things you can do even without rooting on android, yet you cant on an iPhone, even if you jailbreak. I also like the choices. Companys like HTC, lg, Motorola, and samsung all offer different devices and you chooses the one you want. With iOS, no choice except for size. Don’t get me wrong iOS is great. But to me it isn’t even close in terms of greatness to android.

    As I’m in love with my new Xperia Z3 Compact, you have almost all of it’s features wrong.
    It’s not fullHD, and it didn’t have 3gigs of RAM, but it’s still the best phone I have ever had BY FAR, even downgrading from those high specs screens…
    Kudos to Sony Z3C is the best phone money can buy right now!

    Apple does things better than Android and visa versa, but one thing that iOS does better than Android that I wish Google would do is block carrier bloat. My gawd is it annoying! Or at least make it mandatory that they can be removed by the user without root. The second thing I think is an iMessage service.

    But the LG G3 and the Sony Xperia Z1, Z2 and Z3 have also Optical Image Stabilization. *Look at the “Camera” table.

    Apple’s NFC is locked. Presently, its only function is using Apple Pay. Anything else is strictly disabled until (presumably) the near future.

    I wouldn’t say Apple has “NFC” as a feature, pre se. I’d say they’d added soft pay to their list of features, but not full blown NFC (which has quite a bit more capability than just paying for your meal at McDonald’s).

    Well, I know of one area where it’s Android that’s catching up with iPhones – Sound Processing.

    Check this vid for a more scientific explanation – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mR5bfLL7RBU

    I know that’s a niche, but still, worthy of adding to the discussion. ;)
