Don't know where you're getting this stupid story from, but please post the link. Simply head to the search bar, and find the article I said that on. The iPhone came out in September, so narrow your searches there. I'll be waiting... In the meantime, I'm enjoying you being my personal troll. How does it feel to be my little troll w***e? You follow me around PA like dog in heat (a female dog is called a bitch) rite? At least according to some dictionaries it is. You call my life fake, cuz you don't have it, you're a sad little internet loser, coming to PA to be a bother to iOS users. How pathetic dude, and I'm not kidding, I'm being dead 100% serious. You must be a sack of s*** in person, to resort to this type of behavior here. SMDH, and I'm waiting for you to provide that link, and substantiate your claims. PA can limit me if they want, I just thought you should know. Now find that link, copy and paste it here, so we can all read about this new born. FYI, my son is 17, graduates in June, and heads to UNLV, on a full ride, unless he takes another offer. I live in the real world, and there I have a child millions wish they had. Now post that link, we're waiting "female dog".

He is 17 years old now? Hahahahaha sure your kid is growing fast, like really fast. Not long ago, he was only few months old, and now 17. Anyways, i don't have to waste my time proving to others something that they already know, that darkk is nothing but a 13 years old kid living in his own online fantasy world, creating an inconsistent stories. Still, i will try to believe your beautiful story, and that your kid is now 17, which makes me think that you're at least 35 years old. With that said, i think that: 1- I feel sorry for your wife(if she exists) for marrying this immature man who spends his life posting more than 13000 comments, either highfiving kids who own an iPhone, or trolling those who didn't like to pick one. 2- I would find it alarming that a 35 years old man, is spending his time sweet talking a 10 years kid(who other than your bff Mxyzbtlk) day in day out. No one believe your stupid stories kiddo, it's time to jump to another site, steal some selfies from another grown ass's profile, and start a new fantasy world of yours.

I guess you couldn't find the link huh, so you came up with this instead. Well I'm done with you "bro", all I asked was for you to find the link, but you just wanna do a back and forth argument. I'll tell you what: I won't respond to you anymore until you find and post the link to that article. The floor is all yours now, comment away. Find that link though, we're all waiting.

PapaSmurf (Posts: 8974; Member since: 14 May 2012) $499 on contract price is probably the biggest turn off I've seen in years for phones. posted on09 Sep 2014, 14:301 3. E.N. (Posts: 2377; Member since: 25 Jan 2009) Agree completely. No chance posted on09 Sep 2014, 14:48 16. Berzerk000 (Posts: 4117; Member since: 26 Jun 2011) For a 128 GB phablet? It's not that out of reach. The Note 3 was $300 for the 32 GB version on contract when it first came out, and it has less expensive materials, not sure about the cost of the components. Almost no one will buy it, but still. I'm just glad the 64 GB version is the same price as the 32 GB was on previous models. $100 extra for the jump to 16 to 32 was ridiculous, and from 32 to 64 was still bad. Overall, I'm happy with the iPhones. The watch was a complete failure though. posted on09 Sep 2014, 14:521 18. PapaSmurf (Posts: 8974; Member since: 14 May 2012) There's a difference of $200 on contract between the two. Note 4 has 32GB in storage, and can support SD cards up to 128 for less than $100. 32+124=156GB (theoretically) total. posted on09 Sep 2014, 14:591 in response to #18 20. Berzerk000 (Posts: 4117; Member since: 26 Jun 2011) But SD cards are slower and less reliable than built in storage, that's why they're cheaper. I'm sure if Apple used crappy memory the price would go down. posted on09 Sep 2014, 15:081 25. maherk (Posts: 1294; Member since: 10 Feb 2012) Less expensive materials? Lollll this has to be the joke of the day, actually best 2nd joke because the 1st one goes for the iP6 buddy, if aluminum was that expensive, you would ve already seen Coca-Cola plastic cans, not aluminum ones. posted on09 Sep 2014, 15:20in response to #25 29. Berzerk000 (Posts: 4117; Member since: 26 Jun 2011) There's a HUGE difference between the aluminum used in cans and the aluminum used in phones. The HTC One M8 is $600 unlocked, but the One E8, which is the same thing but plastic, is just a little bit over $400. You can crush an aluminum can without even really trying, but it would take a great amount of force to bend, not even crush, the aluminum body of the One M8 or iPhone 6. posted on09 Sep 2014, 15:242 in response to #29 30. maherk (Posts: 1294; Member since: 10 Feb 2012) Don't you dare to compare the HTC's aluminum with the iToy's one. We all whitenessed what a scuffs, scratches, and dent magnet the iPhone can be. you must be really high to compare them both! posted on09 Sep 2014, 15:34in response to #30 32. Berzerk000 (Posts: 4117; Member since: 26 Jun 2011) HTC's aluminum isn't any better than Apple's. You just don't hear as much about HTC's phones being damaged because there's a lot less of them out there. More people owning the phone = more people who can drop the phone = more people who can complain about the phone being damag

Tell it to the frogs, I don't care. I have my own eyesight and judgement, and it's the best camera experience on any mobile I've used by far.

Ain't no one but super nerdy Asian/white boy that used Canon or real camera these days, those that carry it around their neck. Literally no one uses nokia phones or their so called window platform. Samsung is experiencing one of its worst years in sales, how is Samsung a good example? Meanwhile I hear Apple just broke another sales record. Im sorry no one uses the devices you mention.

Just goes to show, more sales/use does not equal better. Just because it is the most popular, doesn't mean it comes close to actual cameras, especially DSLRs. And the camera on the IPhone is one of the worst in the phone industry. Just look at the blind comparison between the Nexus 6. All the iPhone photos had an orange tint to them.

Same as unit sales, the more sales doesn't equate good quality.

Those professional retards at dxomark have no idea what they saying when they reviewed the iphones 6's having the best camera on a phone back then. The amateur's at phonearena are to be considered. P.S. I know 3 people with 6's and not single one of them ever had a yellow tint. Maybe an issue with that comparison unit or something deliberate?


Posts: 182; Member since: Jun 15, 2014

LOL. And that review predates both the Nexus 6 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 by about a month, or two months in the case of the Nexus 6. However, some interesting facts are easy to discern. The Samsung Galaxy S5 closely follows the iPhone 6 and 6+ and is rated higher than the 5s, a fact which iFanatics vehemently denied and still deny. The entire Sony Xperia Z line, of which the Z1 predates the 5S, were all rated higher than the 5s. So make of it what you will. You are the one who supplied the infographic.

A US-based photo-sharing website states that a US-based mobile phone company (Apple) beat out cellphones from Japan and Korea. SHOCKING. Next, you'll tell us that the most visited website by Americans American website. SHOCKING.

Apple iPhone cameras are poor and silly. Samsung and Sony cameras a miles ahead but this result surprises no one and doesn't generate one iota of admiration for Apple. Just another example of the Apple PR machine using media to promote their products.

And to let everyone know SONY makes Apple's camera. so don't think that Apple isn't the best phone in the market they are only good at sales.

Why are DSLRs and smartphones are on the same list? Cameras take 10 pictures of mountains, monuments and buildings while smartphones go through 1000s of selfies and other trivial moments.

The iPhones have the best camers in the world, people love them and use them more than any other smartphone. They lack the mpixels but they have by a mile the best and most profesional image processing software. You simply can't beat the IPhone cameras. The iPhone is also the most used hand heald gaming device because the App Store has some fantastic exclusive games and with metal for graphics some console quality titles aswell.
