My first smartphone was an Android. The Samsung Continuum. Excellent phone until it was updated to the latest Android version for it (Which I think was Froyo). The phone then became unreliable, crashed often, slow as molasses, couldn't do much besides call and text. I elected to get an iPhone 5S as my next phone, and I don't think I'll ever go back to Android. I'm looking to trade in my 5S up for the 6. It's just a preference thing now, almost like a pair of shoes.
As far as hardware goes, I find it trivial really. Octocore CPU? What's the point? if the OS is coded efficiently then the hardware doesn't need to be decked out. The iPhone is developed to have the amount of hardware that is necessary for iOS to run efficiently. If dual core CPUs and a gig of ram is enough to run well, then so be it.
Of course the battery Is an extemption. I admit iPhone batteries don't have the greatest amount of battery life.

I have not seen such a retarded comment in a very long time, which is surprising.
You obviously know nothing about tech; Android has better specs, yeah, because the system is based on Linux and fucking Java, and it uses up to TEN TIMES more processing power doing simple tasks. iOS is based on Unix, and it's TAILORED specifically to each indivial iPhone, whereas Android is made to fit EVERY phone, therefore making it A LOT less optimized.
As for the camera, iOS has better optimization. That's why the screens are better on iPhones than high spec Androids too, because of the DPI, the optimization. I have a Nexus 5 which has an insanely high resolution and the screen still is only just as good as the screen on my iPhone 4S because of the DPI ALONE.
As for the Windows phone, it's shit. The specs are shit which is bad in this case because the OS is built on an unstable Windows kernel making the phone shit overall, plus it has almost no apps and it's more locked down than the iPhone.
I'm not saying iPhone is definitely better than Android, but Jesus fucking Christ you have to be such a stupid fucking cunt to think that it's "overpriced". The iPhone is hardly much more expensive than the Nexus 6 or the Galaxy S6, just a tad more expensive and it also ensures that the design is better, the system is more stable, and it gets updates for MUCH longer than any Samsung device EVER has.
You literally do not have any idea what you're talking about, the most preferable option in this case would be suicide; goodbye

you cant really judge processors just on the amount of cores and clock speed. octa core 2ghz isnt going to be nearly as fast as quad core for a computer because theyre almost like a different technology. even between two computers, two processors at a similar speed and price, one with 4 cores and the other with 8, the quad can still outperform the 8. this is especially seen in amd versus intel. while amd might have an octa core, it wont have the same amount of threads(which are like sub cores) as a quad core intel where it loses performance. i dont know a WHOLE lot about processors but quad core or octa core dont really mean too much. also there is more to it than just processor speed
#135 - charizarddad (05/30/2015) [-]
well its(from what ive read, usually) more like dual quad core. and while it is octacore it wont perform like a pc's might. i still agree though. dont really spend enough time or do anything important enough on my phone to need 8 cores. www.trustedreviews.com/opinions/octa-core-vs-quad-core-what-s-the-difference
#137 - charizarddad (05/30/2015) [-]
website i linked explains it better. "Modern octa-core chips, meanwhile, simply have two sets of quad-core processors, which split various tasks between them according to type. Most of the time, the lower-powered set of cores will be employed. When advanced tasks are needed, however, the faster set of four cores will kick in.
A more accurate term than octa-core, then, would be "dual quad-core". But that just sounds confusing, and it's not nearly so marketable. So, octa-core it is."

I've owned products from both Microsoft and Apple, since I was 8. Based soley on my ability to work on them,tweak them and customize. Microsoft. Apple requires a larger workaround for that. Same with concept of Android or Apple, Android is my go to. It might have to be personality and how the brains work and navigate correlating to it's phone. But ... I don't care one way or the other what someone else has.
#84 - anon (05/30/2015) [-]
I have owned an Iphone, and I can't honestly say you are wrong from experience. However it IS a matter of taste/opinion, so you can't say it is flat out better than any phone, simply because appearance is very subjective. However I agree that physically they are well made and feel like a higher quality piece of hardware. I had an android and while it wasn't terrible, I could feel the plastic buttons, and it didn't feel as sturdy, even if I was less worried that the screen would crack.
#73 - anon (05/30/2015) [-]
I've owned iPhone, Androids (various), Windows Phone, and a few Blackberries. Windows Phone has always won. It feels so much better than any of the others, is a lot more durable, and although there are less apps, you still get all the apps you really need. My only complaint is the current SnapChat issue, but that's SC's fault. They can go fuck themselves.
Also, just for a reference on how much nicer WP is over the others, I use a Lumia 635 and used to have a Lumia 520 (which I personally liked better). They are ~$50 phones without a contract and perform better than an iPhone 5 or your average $400 stock Android in terms of reliability and smoothness.

idk man, I've had the galaxy S4, HTC One S, a Windows Phone, and even after all that, I still prefer my current iPhone 6... That being said, I'm also a massive brand whore and maybe that's why I like the feel of owning an iPhone, but the main reason I personally love it is because it's %100 retard proof and I personally don't like being given so much power to customize my phone yknow? I prefer just going with what is given so that I don't go crazy and slow my phone all the way down. But I agree, Windows Phones are a very very close second

If you like iphones because of how they look outside, yes I think they look good, but so do some android phones, in my opinion samsung galaxy S series looks better that's subjective though so I can't refute which one is best to you
If you like them because of they way they feel to use, you can do the same on an android, you can get custom kernels and various software that gives you the feel of a lockdown OS
spec-wise, androids almost always win, it's objective so there's no real argument unless you cherry pick the few androids that have worse specs
so overall, I'd say it's better to get an android and use a custom rom to achieve the feel of Ios and still have the better specs and the personalisation ability to tailor it to your specific wants.
But if you prefer Iphone that's your choice, you actually know the differences and chose for yourself rather than just bullshitting your way through it like some people I know

I hate apple as much as the next guy but "If you like them because of they way they feel to use, you can do the same on an android, you can get custom kernels and various software that gives you the feel of a lockdown OS " is precisely why people buy apple, they don't know how to change their software and settings to their likings and even if they do know they don't want to do it because that takes effort. They want their product to come simple and to their liking right out of the box. Anything that takes more effort than that is too much for the average consumer.

i think it's nicer for people who aren't used to using technology very much. most people i know that want more customization options end up switching to android. the ones who are content in a controlled environment are usually the ones who really don't fiddle with electronics in general.
#116 - ugoboom (05/30/2015) [-]
Someone on FJ gave this analogy:
People who will enjoy apple products want their phones and laptops to be like their toaster: an appliance. They want it to fucking work and do its job no problem. So what if it's not the MagnoCooker 5000, they don't care, they just want a thing that toasts and that's it. They don't need or care about having a modular heating element or touchscreen panel.
Windows and Linux PCs require varying degrees of love and care. I wouldn't spend more than 5 minutes fixing a toaster, which is where the "I hate windows it doesn't work ever" comes from. This is why Apple still has an existing fanbase. As for the techies that are into apple, god fucking knows.
Apple are fucking top notch at marketing though (samsung too, I don't like the galaxy S series but they know how to make those fuckers sell like hotcakes), and until Motorola and Sony and HTC and the rest can match that level of marketing, Apple products will continue to be popular.
It sucks, I would love for every single person to be using open-source operating systems, but it is what it is.

Well, I don't know man. Here in Europe, if you want a phone that just works without any surrounding BS then buying an iPhone makes you sound like you are buying a Bentley just for its function of driving. It just sounds extremely unnecessary. I mean you can have an Android and just don't put a shitload of shit apps in it and you have a perfectly functional phone without any problems or complications. If that still doesn't do the thing for you, then just install a ROM that makes your phone to be literally exactly like iPhone, with iOS system feel and everything, just on an android phone. So in the end you are basically paying a shitload of extra money for the lack of effort. At least that's what it sounds like. Mind you, I'm just talking about the functionality argument. I understand that there are some people that just "want" an iPhone because they simply want it. Or for its design. Everyone has their own taste.
Oh, and completely agree about the marketing thing. Apple knows how to do its thing.
#194 - elaxx (05/30/2015) [-]
If you are afraid to void your warranties and buy an iPhone instead, it just says that you aren't as concerned about money as you think you are. You can buy a decent iPhone alternative for almost half the price, which means even if you screw up you can pretty much get a new phone and still be within an iPhone range... I generally think that iPhones are a tad bit too overpriced. They are good phones, but just not worth the price. So not being tech-savy and all that... It's not that hard to learn if you put some effort to read a few articles about it... You are just paying quite a chunk of money basically because you are lazy. Still not talking about -matter of taste-. If you like iPhones because you just like them, then it's a matter of taste, nothing wrong with that. Just don't tell me buying an iPhone over an Android is more efficient. Because it's not.

a big advantage android devices have, you can flash a custom rom on your device and there are a lot of good ones like cyanogen, which you can personalize to the last button, or you can chose another custom rom based on android. I have MIUI v6, which has a very similar style to iOs and similar features. because even i cant deny, that iOs has some good features, but i dont want to miss the personalizing option you have with an android.
