A decent comparison rather than some other sites that say it's a draw if if one is clearly superior

HAHAHA, actually how I interpreted these statistics, is that Apple users run out of space on their 16gb memory so often, that they're forced to dump their photos on Flickr (cloud). Everyone else has memory cards to keep them stored offline.

LOL, I run out of space VERY quickly on my iPhone, and the fact it has no memory expansion option just makes me wanna throw the phone away. All the time I have to delete my photos, and today I did over 400 photos. I should consider cloud service.

This sounds like you don't have an iPhone, but just wanna bash incognitos.

What if I told you, to capitalize "what" and "I"?

What if I told you that you have no idea how to use a comma? Your command of punctuation leaves a bit to be desired so get off that soapbox.

I have an 808 pureview and IMHO it's the best for taking pictures ONLY however my girlfriend has an iPhone 6 which I bought her and I although I prefer my 808 and also my 1520 I must admit its a great device and takes very good pictures.

I have 808 and note 4. note 4 take better pictures than 808 in most conditions, except when zooming in on the computer screen. we can only see slightly more detail in 808 when you zoom in other wise 808 holds no superiority over note 4. Note 4 produces very good and accurate colors while 808 is bit coldish in many situations and I sometime have to increase saturation manually to make the pictures look pleasing.
