iPhone 7 / 7 Plus = King of smartphones As evidenced by sales. No annoying lag? Check No touchwiz? Check Top notch performance? Check Great Battery life? Check Brick and mortar locations? Check Apple - King of the Mobile industry. Competitors don't even come close.

Samsung is selling more phones than Hauwei and Apple combined. PA forgot to post news that has negative impact for Apple as usual. https://www.canalys.com/newsroom/huawei-overtakes-apple-cee-xiaomi-rockets-top-five

Nah they didn't forget. They hate Samsung literally, by their own admission. They hate posting any good news about Samsung. When I first came to this site and just watch the article, I thought they didn't like Samsung because they weren't an America company. But the negative press they give Samsung, they give to no other Android or Windows OEM. Though in some fairness, they hate Windows Phone too. But they flat out hate Samsung, because Samsung is the King. They make their own stuff. Have the least amount of legal squabbles and they make great products that have received more award sin the past 5 years, than Apple have received since 2007. It burns them and the fanboy up like crazy. They can't just like all tech and enjoy the fact we lived in a era where we saw a major progression in mobile devices, lead by Apple; but made stronger and better because of Android; with Samsung begin the top single seller.

Annoying lag exists in iphone 7 plus

Every phone has lag. Some just have more than others, and a few have very little, like the iPhone.

"Every phone has lag. Some just have more than others, and a few have very little, like the iPhone." Just like every phone crashes. Some just have more than others, and a few have very little, like the stock Android phone.

Even Samsung phones crash less than iPhone's. Which is a huge deal considering the Galaxy is chalked full of features.

Reply to your first paragraph: I know that. I just stock Android because it's the standard Android version out there.

My Moto E has either stock or near-stock Android, and has indeed crashed a few times in recent memory, in the last six months or so. Started getting worse as my internal memory began to fill up.

Very little isn't equal to zero. The Appel fans claim they have none. Yet the web and Youtube shows every single iPhone model is slow as dirt after just days of usage. Again most lag is cause by the fact, many mobile apps are server-side and thus they have delays that can't be optimized. The speed in which data is retrieved depends on your carriers and also how fast you modems are. Which as a fact the S8 have the fastest modems, but ti wont matter if your carriers network is bogged down with 80M+ users. If you don't install garbage on your device and don't save larges amount of data you don't need like saving 1000's of texts or saving 1000's of media and photos on your mobile, it won't slow down.

Well, if they think they have zero lag on an iPhone, then they are burying their heads in the sand and denying the fact that there is lag on iPhones... just not as much as others in most cases. I am also aware that iPhones crash, but that depends on a lot of variables, and I doubt that iPhones crash so much more than an Android phone would. Windows Mobile was the king of crashes... if I was working on one of my spreadsheets on my T-Mobile Dash, and somebody called while I was doing that, I would have to pull out the battery just to silence the phone ringer because the call couldn't be answered in that state. I still liked that phone, though I've had much better phones since.

According to Forbes, iOS crashes more than all Android versions combined. Just Google the facts. But start with this link. https://www.forbes.com/sites/tomiogeron/2012/02/02/does-ios-crash-more-than-android-a-data-dive/ Now I have seen a race t article by Forbes that claims Android 7.0 crashes apps more than iOS 10. I can't speak from any experience. The k my app tbat crashes on my Samsung is the chase banking app. But it o ly started after its last update. Any app tbat crashes on Android, shows a message onscreen. On iOS they crash so fast, that many just think they didn't press the icon properly the first time. But they did, the app simply crashed.

I like the iPhone too. I just don't have misconceptions about them.

Lag exists in ALL computers no matter what OS they run. They are all buggy, have performance issues at times and have defect and more. Some may be better or worse, but it depends on the user and what he/she does with their device. Just don't feed the trolls and they will die off. And even if they don't we can still ignore them.

Apple fans will always think their s**t doesn't stink, buy always pointing out how someone else s**t stinks. They have always been this way. They have no taste, no class and they are the dumbest people when it comes to tech. Because they believe what they are told, without doing any research on their own to get the actual facts.

It can't be true. My iPhone 5s has very little lag and that's a four years old device. I have never experience lag on a newly released iPhone.

My iPhone 7 lags and it's not even a year old. Especially with the stock keyboard.

Slugglish laggy Apple Watch -https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pZENqJNKHuM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=viW-wAtUcn4 - How to fix laggy iPhone 6/6S https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cGCA_v4WUaI - iPhne 6 frame drops https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1P9PMxdVazE - How to speed up your iPhone 4-5C https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CxIAx-cI0FE - iPhone 7 frame drops Galaxy S and Note = King of smartphone due to availability, user features and more. Doesn't lag any mor eof less than any other smartphone. TouchWiz is why Galaxy devices outsell all Android smartphones. The S8, burned the iPhone 7 Plus in Antutu benchmark. The Galaxy has EXCELLENT battery life lasting up to 2.5 days on a single charge. Able to look a full 1440p for 16+ hours in a single charge and recharge from 0 to 100 in 90 mins vs the iPhone taking over 3:30mins Stores? APple sells most phoen via retailers and carriers. Because Appel doesn't direct;ly offer discounts on phones in general. The only benefit is maybe you can take your phoen in if somethign happens to it. But theer are far mor ecarrier locations and retail loocations vs Apple store. So it isn't an advantage. Also, retailers can sign you up to carrier promos while Apple does not. I can walk into Best Buy or Costco/Sams and any carriers and walk out with a brand new phone of any brand with no money upfront. At Apple you have to pay full retail upfront, which is not how the majority buy their phone. So as per usual, you trolls never make any points. iPhone crash more than all Android combined, no matter the version - Check iPhone have the highest failure rate vs any phone ever made at 60%+ - Check The iPhone has the least secure mobile platform - Check The iPhone is mostly purchase because of popularity and not because of any specific benefit - Check. Sales are the only metric in which fanboys have any ground to stand on. All the rest of the ground has fallen through because the iPhone loses at everything else. It is the least reliable, most buggy, crash prone phone, that breaks easier than any other even over phones that are 90% glass and is the only phone where mass models bent in peoples pockets, drop calls simply because of how you hold it and can be scratched with a cashmere cloth.

No popcorn needed. It's just another Apple fudge story. Not that it's sales number are bad by any means. However if Apple sold 41 million iPhone's in the last quarter. That means 32 million were iPhone 7 and plus versions. So Apple's sales of its iPhone 6s, 6s plus, 6, 6 plus, and iPhone SE totalled 9 million for the other 5 iPhone devices still currently being sold. So something smells a little funky. Or it could be Apple just fudging some numbers for another sensational story to keep Apple users happy.
