Exclamation Confused Between iPhone 6 and Galaxy S6?


I basically have my mind set on S6 but im worried about Samsung price slash {S5, ehem ehem} and Android update problems {lag,stutter} on samsung devices. And I HATE samsung, i rather get micromax than samsung. But S6 looks worthy enough to get it. Last Samsung phone i used was S2. Changed 8 devices after that but none were samsung. Currently using OPO and previously Nexus 5. Not getting oneplus 2.

So i6 or S6?
IF S6 is this the right time to get it {40k retail}?

I never thought a day would come where I will be recommending a sammy phone, but S6 is the flagship phone to buy this year. Also it helps that the iphone 6 luks like a turd

If you're worried about lag/stutters, then the S6 is no different. iP6 has zero stutters and instant screen responsiveness. There's a lot to love about the S6, and responsiveness is NOT one of them. Blame Touchwiz.

If you can wait up, then the iP6S would be gem worthy device.

Re: Confused Between iPhone 6 and Galaxy S6?

Believe me. 2 years down the lane u will be lot LOT happier with the iPhone. I was an apple hater without using it. Having used it now I can safely say Apple is not Apple for nothing. It richly deserves it. Battery backup may be one issue due to slim size. Other than that. Boy. Just imagine. It's software is so well optimised that it does better with 1gb ram than any android does with a 3gb ram. Software is the key here. Though apple also has good hardware, vest resale value, less price cuts and to top it all, the FLAUNT VALUE

Just to add: look how much apple respects your security - u cannot remove a password lock on screen by factory reset. A feat easily possible on Android by doing reset via stock recovery, it's Icloud lock is the best in business. One more overlooked fact - everytime u install am app in Android, u HAVE to give permission for everything listed there. But on Apple, suppose u install WhatsApp, u Can use WhatsApp without granting it permission to use your camera or mic.

I have iPhone 6 from like 10 months now and saying iPhone 6 has zero lags/stutters is just a big fat lie. Weather app lags, video app lags , iMessage lock screen notification removal lags, restarting the iPhone and unlocking it will give u lag when showing the homescreen. 3rd party keyboards lags. Batter backup is wore, I am thinking of buying a new phone and it'll probably be mi4i or OPO2 or this year's nexus.

I am not saying s6 is the same, hell I hate the software on samsung. Right now best UI has to be of iOS, MIUI or stock. and to add to this thread, I'd say to OP go for iPhone but he will be very frustrated with the iPhones shortcomings too. OP better wait for 6S or this year nexus or if u want to have a phone, just get mi4i for now, so that u don't get much loss when u sell it for this year's flagship's.

Maybe upgrade to iOS 8.4, do a reset, and tinker with the numerous battery backup suggestions on the web, unistall useless apps?
Come'n man, don't assume that your experiences might be the same for others or worse. I should have added the word "YMMV" in my earlier post.

There are people who jumped the ship from iP6/6+ to S6, and returned their S6 within a week, complaining how unresponsive was the S6's software.
And there are people who absolutely love their S6, and touting it blazing fast.
And there are people too, who had nightmare of an experiences with Nexus 6, being a snail, out of the box (you can find whole lotta threads like this on Reddit).
And there are people whose Moto Turbo's battery dosen't last for even 2 days.

But that necessarily make the Nexus 6 a "laggy" phone, as we all know how fluid it is (atleast with the two models i used); or make the Moto Turbo's battery claim any less.

"YMMV".

I have used plenty of nexus phones and other android phones in the past. The thing abt android phones is some may feel lag in certain areas, other feels lags in completely different areas. The lags I mentioned to you is same on every iPhone (I have 4 iPhone 6(+2 6+) in the family so I know. Doing a reset and all is known to me and makes no difference. I think I can call myself a advance user in iPhones and android phones, as I love to jailbreak or root android phones and believe me , 8.4 makes no difference at all. Even apple music app is not well built for now, sure the library is great for now. The same lags u will see people mentioning on reddit or iDownloadBlog and other variety of other websites. Apple even said it will fix 3rd party keyboards as its nt the dev's fault but the limitation in iOS itself for not opening up the system to work with 3rd party keyboards like for example with spotlight. That lag is shit there. Even first gen moto g or android one phones performs better with 3rd party keyboards compared to iPhones. I'm sure Apple will fix this with new iPhones though. Same as spotlight light pull down lag which got fixed with iPhone 6, where as people who bought iPhone 5S had to wait for an entire year to get their fix for that lag.

Well i do own a iphone 5s and yes it does stutter/lag and becomes unresponsive from time to time. 8.4 does not fix any issue and the battery back up is not good even with no apps running in the background. Also if you know how ios works is that it doesnt really support true multi-tasking like android so basically apps & their running states are not kept in the memory for long usually within 15 mins the app states are flushed from the memory by the os. Android on the other hand is notorious for keeping app states running in memory indefinitely causing battery drain due to some rogue apps or processes. I do agree however that touchwiz is still crap, but on the s6 one at least have the luxury of installing any ASOP or AKOP ROM.

S6 battery obviously doesnt last that long but of course it lasts more than enough compared to iphone 6
