5c aint flagship buddy.
I don't even have to try, Samsung is the only android manufacturer that sucks in design and UI....that too big time.
So before you start pointing fingers...try looking in the mirror. Also, android gives a lot of options but it has become like a junkyard and will continue to degrade into that.

Given that the DROID line are the hottest selling phones next to the iPhone, I'd say pretty good. Time can only tell.

Tell me again how HTC was able to pull off better results with a 4MP than the one found on the iPhone 5, especially in low light?

so what, 1 billion people also don't listen to heavy metal!

Does it satisfy you that so many people condone your choice...lame

Also, Samsung has an android phone at every buck...we were comparing flagships and sorry sales doesn't bother me coz i get none of their profits lol

So, "again" last i checked 5C is not flagship and while all Samsung flagships are. I'd advise them to customize their phone's design before they brag android customization rights.........

That iOS can address memory that is not present, not to mention that apps can't take advantage of the non-existent memory, because there is no 64-bit SDK? aka Total vapor. Or, total gimmick.

Samsung having a device for every price range has got them where in the mobile world? No. 1?

I thought we were comparing iPhone 5S features to features found in all Android phone models. Good thing you stopped there, because you would have lost.

iPhone 5C is their "mid-range" now, with a $549 price tag lol. You mentioned plastic, I mentioned iPhone 5C. Doesn't have to be a flagship to join on this discussion. So tell me again how many people put cases on their cellphones, which hides the design completely?

Unfortunately, for you at least, you are the one who needs informed, as do most of the trolls on here, including the PA "writer" who sent out the trolling article the other day. Addressable RAM is far from the only advantage for 64-bit processing.

64-bit is useful in mobile for future proofing. Minor, but not insignificant.

64-bit has more usable registers, and wider 64-bit data paths, meaning that heavy calculations are done much more easily. Audio/video encoding and decoding and encryption all run faster with less overhead. Not only that, it isn't just about how much physical memory the CPU addresses, but it also addresses more virtual memory. The A7 will also have double the 128-bit registers of anything else on the market. These things all speed up every day processes. Sounds useless, doesn't it?

64-bit OSes are usually more secure, and can utilize much more complex security and encryption protocols. ARMv8 is no exception, and it provides better native encrypt and decrypt than ARMv7.

laggy droid? lol even a phone with cheap dual core mediatek is not laggy today with custom ROM. Where do you live? In a cave?

WRONG. You couldn't be more wrong. XCode is already running 64-bit.

yeah, 64-bit is useless unless we have 4 GB RAM. Even many apps in PC are still 32-bit.

I wonder if iFans would have so much hatred for the other Android OEMs if they were going toe to toe with Apple like Samsung is.

I'm guessing they would, but you all need to get over it. Apple isn't going to make SS going away and SS isn't going to make Apple go away. Both companies have far too much money to just disappear like some would like them to.

You're right, Moto X and iPhone5 have a 1.4up, but MotoX 10MP camera still lags behind the iPhone5 8MP camera... so, MP doesn't really count.

I love Moto phones, but, truth be told, their cameras are awful... in comparison.

So the benefit is being first. Simple truth is the iPhone really doesn't need it, but it was first so we'll give that to Apple.

Dude, isnt just Sammy working on better CPUs. All chip manufacturers are working on advancements from larger flowthrough, to 64 bits, to faster clock speeds, to more cores, to more GPUs, ....let the iCrap boys have there day! They only get it to blow there horns once a year! Andriod users get the other 360 days for there favourite models to out do eachother! I pace of improvement on the Andriod side of the table is much faster than other OS.
