    The one year old iPhone 6S smokes the new Galaxy Note 7 - it's not even close.

    The one thing Apple is doing better than anyone else that no one is really talking about is their chip designs. They fucking destroy the competition.

    This iPhone 7 is supposed to be almost 30% faster than the 6S.

    :rolleyes: every iPhone owner I know that has touched a nexus 5x or 6p has left jelly of the pure Android goodness. Apple jumped the shark a few generations ago.

    Don't care. More marketing hype and planned obsolescence.

    I had a Nexus I was testing through work for a couple of weeks. My biggest problem was Android... and the fact it's an ugly mess. The apps are all so inconsistent from one another, etc.

    A few apps I tested still lagged through a large scrolling list. The way iOS handles dequeuing table rows is superior in every way to Android.

    Just my .02

    People are all pissed off over the earbud thing, the wireless ones are sold separately for $160.

    They include an adapter so you can plug in your wired ones, but the same single port is also used for charging.

    I used to buy an iPhone and then the next year buy a Nexus. I did this from the Nexus One through the Nexus 5 alternating. At some point, I just realized the applications were better in IOS and I was tired of dicking around with Android. The final nail in the coffin was when Google pushed an update to my Nexus that had the wrong radio (Im att and they pushed another to us). After three weeks screaming in the forums, I realized I am getting to the point I just need a phone that works and a phone that I can take into a store when it doesn't. I was really toying with the 6p, but my two peers who bought them both broke screens within a month. Sticking with IOS for the Apps.

    Apple crowing like they invented Bluetooth headphones.

    Wake me when someone does something cool again, like a foldable screen or a projection keyboard or an app for hand jobs.
