i really dont praise apple a a whole, they do make good looking phones but thats sugestive at best, what i do praise is their app devs, those guys are the real geniuses of the company, able to make apps and games run smooth on their devises compare to other more beefy smartphones, but the game is showing lately, some games on android gives you options to run the game at higher graphical level think of it as pc games, while iphones come without those options, meaning that the games on iphones run smooth but only at a certain level, after that it would look choppy like a low entry phone triying to run modern combat 5.

Apple continues to be inferior products for stupid sheep. Welcome to tech from 2 years ago.

The Apple fans just don't see it. There are plenty of people who are just content to get something better. Even if it's .5% better, to them that's acceptable.

The iPhone doesn't need 4GB of RAM. But if they allowed iOS to do full multi-tasking instead of that half-@$$ lame multi-tasking, then 3GB would be sufficient. Of course with a 64bit chipset, 4GB would be a huge plus.

I doubt they need 4GB of RAM or 20MP camera. 2GB is more than enough for iOS. though they should put 1080p on iPhone 6 too. there's nothing to complaint about spec when it comes to iPhone. cuz they aren't about spec.

Why do people compain about the iPhone not having top specs when the user experience is the best?

I think with the base model of 6s 12MP and 2 GB RAM is fine. But with 6s Plus they should have atleast 16MP camera with more than 3GB RAM

They've already taken a dump on apple with S6, and even Note4 will destroy plus 2015 crap. Samsung way too strong here.

No this is not revolution and I doubt anyone claims so, but every Apple user should be happy that Apple FINALLY added another gig of ram. It's true that iPhone 6 runs perfectly smoothly most the time, BUT having more than 4 tabs opened in browser makes it practically unusable. I know that for Android even 4 GB of ram isn't nothing special, but laugh at me if you will but for me this specs bump is big deal, it will be enough to not switch it for another phone in 2-3 years, I don't like changing my phones, that's why I would like to buy once and good one. And it means with jailbreakable iOS :)

When you jailbreak iOS you are turning you phone in to a featureless Android device. If you like that, you might as well root a Nexus 6. You wont believe what is out there in the developer community, how they make kickass kernels with epic battery life & other features not yet available on stock Android. Your mind will be blown.

I know, I am into modding Android for like 5 years now, and right now I'm playing with S5, but I just like iOS more and how all the tweaks match each other and blend into iOS design.

Yet it will receive updates faster than any other Android phone and be officially supported longer, have a better camera and preform at the highest level with a smaller battery and less ram than the highend androids. And I'm a Nexus fan.

And still using outdated specs when all the iFans still praise apple nwith their limitless NFC feature. I hope they still kept the best feature #bendgate

Yes it doesn't mean that. But let me ask you a question and I do realize phones by brand are different. When you pay top dollar for a product and you compare it to a product that cost relatively the same, do you not expect them to offer similar options and capabilities. Example, the present iPhone 6 and 6+ are both using specs from 2012, yet they cost equal or more than newer phones which have newer hardware. I dont care if Apple cheats to make their old hardware work almost as good as everyone. Would they need to if they just used the latest?

Ugh. There's so little news surrounding the iPhone that Phone Arena has to write an article about "suspected specs" of the next iPhone 6 months before it comes out? Apple suuuucks!

well said general,its like what ever apple does is a first,as though it never existed before. which is because its ios is exclusive to itself,if it were to have oem's people would pack it up with 4gb ram, 20+ mp camera,and who knows what else.

They doesn't deserve more than 8MP cam and 1GB RAM. "If it ain't broke don't fix it," right? Seems like they are happy with these. Also I would say there is no need for 64GB and more storage for them. When looking what saying that so called marketing guru about 16GB storage, it should be more than enough. They would buy it even with 8GB storage.

I didn't hear anybody say revolution. But at least its not fatally fragmented like all the droids out there.
