iPhone 6, the fancy new addition to apple's line of smartphones. I'll be honest with you, there are reasons why I do not like it and here are the top 5.
not very convincing
Part 2 would definitely be convincing..... And if you are an iPhone user I will make you switch to android. Coming soon!
Android's amazing. I just got my Galaxy S4 back today and im real happy about that. but man, just stop. this is super weak. nobody cares. i mean it, nobody. this isnt even an article its just a dumb flamebait typed like a high school playstation/xbox fanboy, but with phones instead of videogames... nobody
not convincing as well..
I hate Apple but these points are weaksauce. :/
This was just a trailer!!! Trust me
I hate my android galaxy s 4 I welcome apple with open arms
Wow droid fanboys spend way too much time talking and writing about the iphone. Just keep your mouth shut and enjoy what you prefer. No need to praise a piece of plastic.
People just like to justify their purchases like this. But to be honest, many of these Android users actually know their stuff (not referring to the article), unlike Apple fans which seem more like a cult. Me? I don't really even consider phones that cost more than 100$/€. Personally i think It's a waste considering how even the budget phones nowadays run literally all the apps you might need on your phone. I'll bite you in the ass far less if you break/lose the phone as they are far cheaper to just replace. if you want games just buy a console or at least a tablet.
I'm a year into my 5S the battery lasts at least 24 hours the camera is still 8MP although I'm sure apple have upgraded it in their own way as it's normally top end of what they say, 2 sizes although I think I'd have to go middle of the road as that bigger one just looks a bit too large for me but that's the problem the battery is better on the bigger one and a few other things are slightly improved on the bigger one ie the screen and camera but for the extra £100 in the U.K. Think I'll wait a year for next years new version and either jump straight on that or get a short contract with a cheaper 6/6+ the only other major thing that makes me wanna jump ship is they've now gone up to 128gb I'm sure other phones may have loads more and this isn't a big thing for some people but my music alone fills up a good 50/60% of my 64GB and it's not like new music comes out daily haha, but yeah gonna wait it out this time and leave myself with some options next October ;) 6+ or the new 7 with a 10+ MP camera and 128gb at least if not 250 ;) but at apples prices for memory I dread to think what that would go up to, but yeah no rush this year, they do look pretty nice, but it's a bit like when the 4'a came out, pretty unnecessary so just went for the 3G at the time ;) The thing to remember with these phones is that for the average Joe (some people just have more money than sense and buy out of contracts and all that rubbish, at what cost?) but for most of us were normally signing up for 2 years and the fact their is a new version every year so far since launch you'll only normally have the latest version for 1 year if your current older one is still doing the job just hold out the extra year and get your "free" upgrade on the latest handset of it not try get a 12 (if they even do these anymore) or 18 month contract with the upgrade to yours just not the latest one and ride it out for a year, there's not normally all that much difference apart from social status?! Yay ;)
After being Nokia for years 3210, 3310, 7110 (mad roller), 8210 and then moving on to Sony Ericsson been apple since 4 came out ( I got the 3G day 4 came out) haven't looked back since, sure they've got cameras on phones with 15-20 MP if your lucky but they are normally not top end of the specs they are advertising, it's like broadband speeds, it may be up to this but general it'll be this, at least apples specs are exactly what they say they don't try and bend the truth, the majority of other handsets are just far to large, don't get me wrong I wouldn't mind a slight increase in size on my 5S screen but I still want to be able to hold it in one hand get it in pockets and not be carrying around something the size of an old portable CD player, it's a phone at the end of the day, if I want a tablet sized phone I'll get a tablet, but since owning an iphone I've not even bothered with a PC. Use family laptop from time to time but generally can do anything needed through phone, mainly buying games and tickets for concerts/festivals, I never have a problem with my phone crashing constantly or breaking full stop, apple products just work and for that it'll take a lot to get me off iphone, call me a fanboy or whatever but looking at my gaming consoles and you'll get laughed out of town own em all accept xbox one but yeah iPhones just work they may be pricey but at least if you look after them you can sell them for a very good price normally so it's all good in my eyes, apple all the way for the time being but think it would have to be a sony if I jumped ship, not gonna happen anytime soon, got another year with my 5s then I'm going 6/7 ;)
MicroUSB is absolute crap! Just like normal USB, you have to turn it around 2 or 3 times before you can get it into the socket, yet somehow microUSB harder than trying to put in a normal USB. I honestly really do not like all formats of USB. It's an ill-conceived concept from the 90s that somehow became the norm. And I seriously cannot wait for the day that USB is phased out.
I agree with you on that. It can be so much better. But the thing is that it is the standard. Everything has a Micro USB.
you have to turn it around only once if you are not completely incompetent. The new USB standard (type C) can be plugged in at either side. Good luck waiting for USB being phased out.
Competence has nothing to do with constantly plugging it in on the first or second try. It's pure luck! Or you're diligently watching what you're doing every time... which shouldn't be necessary. As for the 'Type C' USB... That's not going to be out until 2016 or so. But seriously, why couldn't they have done that years ago?!?
