Apple Fans how do you defend yourselves after seeing this.......

In the middle of several books.
Nothing to defend.

I don't care what features Samsung has compared to Apple. At the moment, I am happy with the Apple products I own and how they integrate into my life and needs.

If Apple not having the same features as Samsung all the time hurts you, it would behoove you to to seek help from a professional and find out why that is...because that isn't rational behavior, in my opinion.

I love and own apple but this hurts. I don't see how iPhone can be defended with this comparison.
If I understand well this comparaison : the camera from the S6 was a lot better that the one on the S8 (only 12MP !!!! what a joke !)

That's just numbers without details. iOS don't need 6gb RAM, 12MP camera (Samsung only add dual with note 8, welcome 2016 I suppose?) can be a lot better than 16MP, galaxy S8 is 8mm thick (this run for the thinnest smartphone is over),.....

The only true feature here is Wireless charging. OLED is ok but LCD from the iPhone are not bad at all.

Not a troll just wanted to hear what other apple users had to say about this. I don't know what to say about it. I have a 8 plus 256gb on the way.

Is optimisation on that list? I think they left out optimisation.

Seriously though, who cares? The phone is personal to you. I know people love to defend their purchase and we all get caught up in it but anybody would think this was a football rivalry.

Anyone can defend something if they believe in it. It's an opinion. It doesn't have to be right to everyone else.

That being said, I started with Android. I laugh when I see how impressed some people get with features I've been seeing for years.

I like iOS but not as much as I did prior to iOS 11.

I'm ready to go back. It's just a matter of finding a device I like enough spec, price and looks wise.

Yea I've said this before, Apple used to lead by 2-3 years, now they are behind by that much. And iPhone 7 corroborated that Apple didn't need to do much to sell like hotcakes, so it seems they have no pressure to innovate anymore.

How do I defend my Porsche versus a Ford that has more power for less cost? I don't.

In this case I'd say bring your S6 and face off against a 6s, which is 2 years old and half the speed of new releases.

Well as a owner of an S6, it certainly isn't ip68 lol.

Nor is it IOS

But it does have an IR blaster!

But it doesn't have Face ID tech.

And it has a home button and FP reader which the X doesn't have but the 8 does.

Oh, it has quick charge as std, including an adaptive charger. Works from the same lead as well.

Doesn't have 3d touch.

Great phone.

But it's not an iPhone.

Wasnt that the gimmick Samsung used where their users could share information by putting their phones together?

Guess how many times Ive seen people using that feature?
I use NFC regularly to charge up my travel card and to pair with Bluetooth devices. Works great

Why do you have to say anything about it. Everyone just buys and uses whatever phone they like. Why are people so insecure about it. I'd rather here from whoever made the graphic why they care so much about proving that someone else's phone is inferior.

There's one of these for every iPhone release, by the way. I remember seeing one comparing the 5s to the Nexus 4 or something.

The the android world might well be laughing at Apple and Apple fans in general with the features android has had for years and now using samsungs displays but at the end of the day people buy what they want and Apple have a very loyal fan base who will buy anything that's put buy what you enjoy
