    Some of the disadvantages are no FM radio and it lists 8mp as a disadvantage despite saying its improved year on year.

    It seems no matter how good a product Apple make theres always a reason to own Android instead well according to these sites.

    Live with it. There are sites that are against Android (MacRumors for example). Sites against Windows Phone (Verge), and sites against everything (The Onion).

    GSMArena is definitely an Android site. They contradict themselves so many times in there iphone 6 review.

    Have only scanned the review, but it looks balanced and impartial to me. Why do you feel it necessary to highlight a couple of the article's negative conclusions, rather than any of the positives?

    "We started this review with a rant we had been holding in for a while. Having gone all the way, we got to see a better side to the iPhone 6, inevitably warming up to it. What these few days didn't change however is how we feel about Apple's way of doing business."

    While disagreeing with a corporation's business model is their right, they cannot do an impartial review of a product if they allow those misgivings to color the review of the project, which it's very clear that this is what they're doing.

    If they want to review a product, fine. If they want to criticize Apple, fine. But don't use a product review to skewer in your opinions of the company and then call it an impartial review.

    The reviewer is a self-confessed 'Apple fan' but appears to have concerns about the company's conservatism: basically he thinks the company should be 'pushing the envelope' a little more. But I think the boundaries between 'product review' – what the phone is – and 'opinion of Apple' – what the phone could/should be –are sufficiently maintained.
