Wait so my note 3 which is from 2013 has better features including better screen resolution than the brand new iPhone. Why do people buy apple products again?
@Kliment Voroshilov, because they're sheeple.
@Kliment Voroshilov, because spec sheets don't translate into real world performance as has been shown time and time again. My 5s still has less lag all round than my Dad's S7.
@Kliment Voroshilov, The main reason I use apple is because all app/game progress won't transfer over to non apple products. I didn't know this or how much apple sucks when I got my first apple product. My enslavement will never end.
@Kliment Voroshilov, I like iMessage. The messaging system is nice because it uses wifi. Group messages are great as long as everyone has an iphone
@Jackie Chan, idk how you make a phone lag, but I think it's cause you're using it wrong :o
@Jackie Chan, good one
@Kliment Voroshilov, because I have forever and don't feel like changing to something new. I won't but the iphone 7 though, so i'll be forced to try something new eventually unless i want to hold onto my iphone 6s forever.
@Feral Snorlax, let go and start a new, happier life maybe?
@Jonnasty, yeah Samsung can totally use Wi-Fi to text. Doesn't have integration with a computer like Apple does though. I'll give them that. Not a selling point for me though
@Kliment Voroshilov, because Apple products don't explode
@eleven, Touché my friend. I actually bought a note 7 before the recall came out. Luckily it didn't catch fire though apperently it could have.
@Caine, there's 5 people that got butt hurt about a joke and non of them had the nuts to comment as to why.
ANDROID FOR DA WIN BAISS
Watch out, iPhone users! In two years, your phones will explode! You have been warned!
I've owned iPhones and androids, and I like them both equally because they're different. In my experience iPhone hardware and software has been more reliable and less buggy than android(even though the phones rarely have new breakthroughs), also iPhones seem to be generally faster and have longer lasting batteries. Also I don't see the big deal with no headphone jack on the 7, it comes with earbuds, an adapter(which you don't need to use the earbuds it comes with), and they're are plenty of quality affordable wireless headphones.
@MeninistPosts, I have a Windows phone, iPod touch and nvidia shield(android) tablet. I have to say that Android is the least stable of the OS's. It often loads random apps when I unlock the screen, sometimes it will be non responsive for seemingly no reason. IOS has the freezing thing too. I don't get this on my Windows phone at all. People dismiss it saying "but it has no apps". Yes, but it is a more stable device. If I want fun apps, I use my other devices
Now benchmark the A10 and any android phone you want and show me the one that beats the iPhone
@hodorhodor, Just so you know, the processor speed is great and all, but doesn't matter much on its own. Much like the government, just because it *can* handle something doesn't mean it *will* handle something. The Snapdragon processors have been beasts specifically because they perform well in day-to-day use rather than controlled parameter benchmarks
@HiroAntagonist, and is like to tell you that the iPhone 6s has been undefeated champion in speed tests until now(only the OPT coming close, finishing three seconds later). So even in real life iPhones have been faster XD
@hodorhodor, "and is like to tell you" those are still under lab conditions, not real world. And last I heard, the latest Snapdragon beat it before the A10 came out. Haven't checked the numbers in a while
@HiroAntagonist, and go and check benchmarks he A10 is way way faster than the SD In single core( life double the score) and a bit faster in multi core.
@hodorhodor, Okay. Nice and slow because you keep missing the point. Benchmarks. Don't. Equal. Better. Performance. Hooray for your slightly higher numbers. They don't mean as much as you'd like to taut.
@HiroAntagonist, LOL DUDE. I'm only asking you WHAT Can be used to compare the two phones then haha. User review? Il love for you to go read the review of iOS and android. None of them are as fluid as iOS except pure vanilla, which comes close. I hope with the new pixel phones coming there'll be a change and android will be faster for a change XD
You know what, screw you iPhone haters... Take THIS!
*Pulls pin on Note 7*
*throws at h8ers*
@4Chan Ambassador , *light amount of shrapnel cracks iphone screen*
@StrikerSigmaV, I've had my 6 since it came out, no case and only just put a crack on the edge of the phone because of a 4 foot drop on asphalt. iPhones are solid. People just don't know how to take care of things and make them last longer
@The Legend of Mully, I know, I like to joke around because of the trope. Androids aren't that better off, my S5 had a 2 foot fall from my bed and cracked in the corner exposing the front camera.
@StrikerSigmaV, mine may just be indestructible. I've had my s5 for quite sometime and have never gotten a Crack in it. And I've speed it several times on all kinds of surfaces
@StrikerSigmaV, having a phone case and tempered glass makes a world of difference. I've dropped my S6 multiple times with no cracked screen.
At least iPhones don't explode
@thelemonzester, Samsung has officially recalled the defective devices.
@DarkRevolation , the phones are still officially exploding...
@DarkRevolation , this is the one thing apple users will bring up now. Defective batteries happen.
@TheGoogler, Apple phone users aren't haters like people that use "other" phone users.
@Mit, uses "other" phone users? The last bit of your comment really didnt make much sense. Also, android users for instance arent haters. "Hater" indicates that apple is better and/or has something android users want and andoid hates them for it. This isnt the case, android users hate apple due to the over priced/old tech that android put on the market long ago. They also tend not to force "innovation" releasing several different models of the same phone for different users. But thats for instance.
@TheGoogler, "force". "Innovation". "Price". It's simple. Take your money and buy what you like. Those that constantly attack something that they don't like and "hate" that it's successful is humorous. I take my money and buy all brands that have features I like and move on.
@Mit, I, personally, don't hate Apple because they're successful. I hate that they blatantly lie to their user base. Their tech serves very good, specific purposes. But they play like they're leaders in the field when their stuff is drastically behind, and not even developed by them in the first place. The iPod didn't succeed because it was the first mp3 player. It succeeded because of marketing
@TheGoogler, "haters" indicates that you "hate" something. When you "hate" the iPhone's cost... You're a hater
@big freedom, the term haters will hate is coined from people who are doing better than another. The term hater is used by someone who thinks one is better than the other.
@big freedom, and if we are talk the literal meaning of "hater", that would be the "general" dislike of something. Like i have a "general" dislike of beer. If a person has a reason they dislike something then it tends not to be a general dislike. But the way hater is used nowadays is like i said in my previous comment.
@HiroAntagonist, I completely agree with you. That is true for every consumer product out there. Marketing is a tool that is used to draw you in telling you what you want to hear and see. Example: restaurant food. Photos on menus and tv. Have you ever received what it looks like? Never. But we flock to it anyway. That's why it works.
@Mit, Well yeah. But I think there's a stark difference between "this burger is thick and juicy" and "we literally invented this technology special for this device and no one else has it give us $800"
@HiroAntagonist, I haven't paid attention enough to hear them say they invented a technology. I think right now all are just vying for market shares for repeat customer and bring over new ones. Right now there's nothing really new and exciting' just twisting old features. It's a game and we fall for it even though they are all made on the same assembly line in China
Android user here and to be fair, most of the points made here are very skewed.
@TheCaptn, actually, I just compared the specs between the 2, and the only thing the iphone7 has on the nexus 6 is a more powerful front facing camera.
Apple is known for being 1-2 years behind the competitors when it comes to power.
@Ted Mosby is a jerk, but to be fair what do they do have is an arguably more user friendly U.I. and the tech has been around so it very unlikely to have ANY problems at launch. Samsung fan boy here but there are certain pros to an apple product
@Ted Mosby is a jerk, A10 benchmarks blow the most powerful android phones out of the water
@hodorhodor, Just give it another year or two, android will most likely have a chip that'll double the A10
@BigHatLogan, and by then the A12 will be out XD
@TheCaptn, not at all actually
@hodorhodor, Benchmarks matter bupkiss in real world setting
@HiroAntagonist, yea. Go and see speed tests. No android phone has beaten the 6s until now(when it's a year old already) so beating the 7 is like never happening XD
@hodorhodor, I go and see speed tests. Speed tests say they happen on environment control, not real world. In real world processor have little to do with performance. Just because one part go fast fast no mean all part go fast fast or work together good good.
God it was hard typing that. Was it easier to understand?
@HiroAntagonist, haha. then tell me where can it be proven that any android phone is faster than the iPhone. And the speed tests happen in "equal" environments by which they mean that both the phones have the Sam apps installed and no background processes running. Never have I seen an android phone being as fluid as the iPhone with the sole exception of nexuses.
@hodorhodor, Well you answered your own question there at the end. In addition, there are never *no* background apps running, since system processes are required. Lastly, I'm not disputing the speed difference. I'm saying, repeatedly, that better speeds do not instantly mean better performance. Some Android models are ridiculously slow. Most are not. Most iPhones run the same across the board solely because they have the exact same hardware. But even then, it isn't a guarantee of performance.
Hard data on performance is hard to get because of the vast number of variables involved. But it's been shown repeatedly that the higher end Android lines are as fast, if not faster, than previous versions of the iPhone in real world settings
@hodorhodor, And also, these arguments that android phones have the features first are flawed. They have features that anyone barely used while when the iPhone introduced a new feature, it becomes universal( looking at fingerprint scanners, 64 bit processors, touchscreen operating systems, etc)
@HiroAntagonist, that has never been shown and another point id like to point out is durability. Because Apple makes both the hardware and the software, iPhones get SW updates for five years( iPhone 5s started at iOS 5 and last update was iOS 9) and they're still considers my fast. Compare the iPhone 5s on iOS 10 with the Galaxy note 3 or s5 or nexus 5(which have stopped getting updates eons ago except for the nexus which got them until now) and see. The iPhone will still be fluid while Samsung crap will be as good as dead XD
@hodorhodor, I mean 4s started at 5 not 5s
@HiroAntagonist, also when a new Samsung phone comes out, it's shown to be faster but when the six month review comes out, there's lag everywhere. Idc if you agree but only nexuses(pixels) are the android phones worth buying because of on-time updates and vanilla android.
Until you can pick up and use a phone while it is being charged wirelessly, it is completely useless.
@iOS10, not entirely. Most truly waterproof phones have a cover for the charge port to keep water out, however this can wear out and break. So inductive charging can extend the lifetime considerably.
@ReeseBobby, that's not what I meant. :). With wireless charging, the phone has to sit on the wireless base to charge the battery. Which means I can't pick it up unless I want to stop charging. Though, when I have a cord plugged into my iPhone, I can pick it up and use it while it charges. And with the 12 foot cable, I have a pretty good range.
As someone who's had both android and iPhone I can say android has more powerful phones but iPhone works better as a smartphone in general. The operating system is nicer and it gets better reception than my android friends with the same network. Phones a phone though
You haven't used android until you've tried a nexus, just saying
Notifications on lockscreen?
Contextualy word predictions?
Siri app intigration?
These are features that have been on the iPhone since 2014 - if not before. Why is the creator cherry picking things like they are new to the 7, and comparing them to something Nexus has also had since then? This is ridiculous.
@onetoendall, Which third-party apps has Siri been integrated in, exactly?
@HiroAntagonist, "Siri set an alarm for 6:30 am." "Siri read me that text message." "Siri search for Italian restaurants in my area." Is this not "Siri app integration?" The post created by the snarky "Vish" says nothing about third party Siri app integration.
@onetoendall, Oh, see, that's because we're used to being able to use Google now and voice commands with apps that aren't from Google. Using Siri to control stock Apple apps isn't "integration" because it doesn't use anything other than what's already there. Third-party app developers are extremely rarely allowed to use anything other than the basic access Apple lets them have. Whereas Google is totally cool with people modifying and improving their software as they are fit.
To be fair, water resistance, Siri, and definitely notifications on the lock screen have been on the iPhone for a while. And I don't really know or care about screen or camera resolution
@Pedophile Tom, The iphone has never had water resistance before unless you bought a waterproof case. For the screen resolution steve jobs said that nobody can differentiate pixels denser than something like 226ppi so theyve been lagging behind competitors there for a while.
@DeadLogic, while they never actually advertised the water resistance, I've dropped my 6s in water, as well as jumped in the lake with it on accident, and it's been fine. It hasn't been submerged for a long period of time, but it is at least water resistant to an extent.
@Pedophile Tom, they were not water resistant. There is a literal test that phones are put through. This is the first year that an iPhone can actually pass said test.
@Buffalonian, I'm just giving my personal experience. They may not have been able to say they were water resistant because they couldn't pass this test, but, at least the iPhone 6s, can resist some water damage
@Pedophile Tom, water resistance is a testable feature on a phone and all high end phones go through said test. This is what determines whether the phone is water resistant not your personal experience.
At least the iphones dont explode
Still on a note 4. My last best phone before this was an overly jailbroken and moded iPhone 4. Didn't lag at all and had Al the features it's 8 had without the moving pictures or sheer hardware capability. Or reason I want a note 7 is camera quality. Everything else is kinda pointless unless you hardcore game on it.
Hey, that's my phone! The Nexus 6, that is.
Oh thank god for this joke again
PRAISE GOD FOR THIS JOKE AGAIN
WHAT WOULD WE DO WITHOUT THE ANNUAL APPLE HATE JOKES
Welcome to 2014?
Have I been writing the wrong date?
I have an iPhone 6s, and I'm thinking of getting the galaxy S8 when it comes out in a few months. i used to love apple because it was easy to use, but they really are behind on designs and technology, so I think I might finally be sick of it. Anybody else switched brands? What did you think?
@TheDoctorsTARDIS, I switched brands after the iPhone 4 for the S3. Although iOS is "user friendly" you can easily adjust to android with a month or so of use, and the spec upgrades in pretty much every category is nice.
@arabTerminator, yeah that's what I mean by user friendly; it's simple and basic, but the Samsung allows freedom of use
