    I just think they are limited because they truly cannot do as much as an Android can. I have shown my aunt an Android and she says it is too complicated. I would say that iOS is too simple but to each their own I kinda do have both sides of this argument. OP2 and iPad.

    Lol. I'm typing thus on my iPad as it happens.

    I get that peole love to flash stuff and play with Xposed modules, but for the everyday, average user, it really doesn't hold much interest. I guess age also has a lot to do with it. I rooted and installed Xposed when I first got the phone, but I just found it irritating tbh lol. All that is generally for younger dudes than me. I have other stuff I'd rather be doing with my spare time than constantly tinkering. Plus, how many threads have you seen on this forum beginning with HELP!!!! from people that really shouldn't be 'customising.'

    I sensibly got out before I became the poster of one of them. :rolleyes:

    Lol. In every day performance the iPhone blows Android out of the water when it comes to smooth lag free operation. The iPhone also handles games like a champ. Not sure what iOS being a locked ecosystem has anything to do with performance.

    Ha! Maybe you should credit Samsung as they are the one's who are manufacturing these chips with their 14nm technology.

    Because humans just love being "one of the lads" and there's also,as you rightly point out the financial issue.When you can't afford something rather than just shrug your shoulders and say "Ah f**k it I just can't afford it" most people will invent any reason not to have , say, an iPhone 6+ as if they have to explain themselves to the "in" crowd .Thus Apple sh** this Apple cr*p specs that,no customization ,locked into their system ( Google??o_O).
    Yes there a lot of people who legitimately prefer one over the other but all the rest is mouth and self delusion.
    If I could afford to have all my gadgets from Apple ,iMac, Macbook pro, iPad and yes even an iPhone I would consider it.( only consider mind, because as you said the tax evading,smug, holier than thou, money grabbing company is quite disgusting really)

    Edit; and that wank*r who fawned over the "emergency selfie" works for them so maybe I'll never buy their products after all:p

    Totally agreed.. Apple's strategy is to upgrade the software, make the older phones slower, force ppl to upgarde.. Repeat..

    Great single-core score. Even the multi-core is above average, considering the thing is a dual-core. Now that's what I call efficiency. But then I wouldn't expect anything less of Apple.

    LOL! I'm a born tinkerer. When I was persuaded to stop hacking processors, I didn't have a single white hair in my beard. Now they can be seen at a glance. The layoff clearly aged me :( :D. I've already taken the OP2 apart and made some changes to it's cover. :D
