So, it's coming soon. Big improvements advertised are the screen, the camera, the NFC pay system, and the fact that you can make calls via wi-fi, despite just about every android phone having been able to do that since 2007.

My upgrade is in October. Is there any reason to get one of these over an Android? Tell me, Iphone savvy friends.

lol I will never understand why people ask these inane questions

It's a phone. most likely you will never utilize even 50% of the features any given phone has. And if you do, then you already know exactly what you want.

basically it doesn't matter

...modes and scales are still useless.

android > apple

Thoughts?

it's nothing less than sublime

a little big to get used to at first, once that's overcome the battery life is fantastic (for today's phones) can get a day and a half to 2 days out of one charge even during standard use.

camera is good, but i don't really use my phone's camera other than taking pics of normal stuff, not arty or professional photography

it's really quick

waterproof (trust me, i've tested it)

the fingerprint unlock is good, iphone you can register 10 fingers, S5 can only register 3 but you just need one really (i just use right thumb)

you can be a jedi and wave your hand in front of it to scroll down web pages etc

S Health is a fun add on, but nothing more than that really

all the usual apps are there, anything you can get on apple you can get on android, and it's often free on android too

the speaker on the S5 looks puny, but it's got a decent sound coming out of it!

yes it has a plastic back, but that's because it's got expandable memory (micro SD) so you can't complain, the plastic back is still grippy and looks cool

i have the white one, but all colours look good!

can't think of anything else, but if you want to fire away any questions please do.

Well the processor of the iPhone 5 kicked the S5's ass, should be even better with their new super special awesome iPhone 6 chip.

Plus the software is plain better.

The shape never really got me though, so I have an xperia mini pro.

iPhones totally f*cking suck Apple are like such a corporation and they use slave labor and i hate them and they are sooooooo expensive and like i hate them and f*ck Apple and a core part of my personality is that I hate Apple cos they f*cking suck.

If you like the look of the iPhone 6, buy it. End of.

EDIT: Also I hear IOS 8 will make the phones waterproof, so that's a bonus.

Gonna get a smartphone soon and am deciding between this and the Galaxy. I really like the Galaxy but I like that the iPhone would be more compatible with my Macbook and the Apple TV I got for free last month.

Also 64 GBs of storage, tho I guess the Galaxy can use outside storage. hmmm, decisions....

The stupid thing about that picture, is that pretty much all of those features mentioned on the iPhone 6 are features that have been on previous iPhone models. So none of those are brand new to the iPhone like that pic is trying to convey.

If you want a big phone, the iPhone 6 Plus is too big for its screen size.

http://mobiledevicesize.com/compare/#474,434;1

That's the Lg G3 vs. the iPhone 6+. Same screen size, yet the LG is a much more manageable size. Most of the new features they announced have been on Android phones for years already, so I'd stick with Android if I were you.

I hade the LG G2, got the Nexus 5. Go with the G3. Iphones are for wankers.

Wait what was that about selfies???

What is the best phone for taking selfies

Oppo N1



The part with the camera is on a swivel, so you can use the rear camera to take selfies yeh.

Word. I didn't even get a smartphone until this year, and I still mainly just use it for texts and calls. I can use an actual computer for the rest of that shit.

NICE. But only 16 gb and no SD card slot? Not optimal for selfies 😿
