    IMHO, the sapphire screen won't be going on a larger iPhone for the foreseeable future - just too expensive. Thus, people will have to make a choice: Bigger screen, or sapphire. I'd also be willing to bet that the larger iPhone will sport a metal-reinforced plastic back a la iPhone 5C. That will help hold down the cost.

     

    So high-end aluminum-cased iPhone with smaller sapphire screen or larger plastic-cased iPhone with tempered glass: Which would you choose? Me, I like the size of my 5, so I'll be going with the high-end version. With that and my iPad, I'm set.

    Learn, instead of using old images that are just wrong and simply show how ignorant of other OSes you are :

     

     


    Apparently Fandroids forgets that Android not only copies iOS but also Jailbroken iOS and OS X

    How did you determine they require a 64-bit processor or are even made better by it at all?

    Apple - Elegant interface.

    Samsung - Management to engineers... "Copy Apple more closely." Samsung attorneys to jurors "Rectangles with rounded corners!"

     

    Apple - iPhone 5s elegant fingerprint solution. Fixed bugs within months. Press, hold lightly, unlocked!

    Samsung - Galaxy fingerprint swipe... swipe again... try again... one last time.... Oh go and enter your passcode. We too have fingerprint unlocking!!!!

     

    Apple - Sapphire everywhere we can use it. 

    Samsung - We are moving from Gorilla glass to plastic because our customers demand it.

     

    What next????

    No. That's what kept you following the anti-Apple cult.

    They are expensive, so that must mean they are good. What other possible conclusion could be reasonable?

    It's sure not helping with app loading speed. This cheap Android phone can already beat it.

    That's a strawman. I didn't say it was faster than his phone. I just said it worked well with the processor, contrary to what you said.

    You didn't answer about that image. Apparently you never heard of WebOS and didn't know that quick toggles came on Cydia before. And you call us a cult? Get better information.

    We need to figure out a way to harness Samsung's enthusiasm for copying whatever Apple does and use it for some greater good.

     

    Maybe we could convince Samsung that Apple is building an economical fusion reactor and this would inspire Samsung to figure out how to actually do that. Or asteroid mining robots. Or an interstellar space cruiser.

    Apple's current interface was in no way copying Windows Phone or Android.

    So it is not a faster phone. Even though it is twice as expensive?

    So you are saying Apple copied from WebOS?

    So you want Apple's competitors to be as good as Apple at being Apple, so you can buy products from them? Sounds logical. I think Apple should have classes to help them. /s

    I want Apple's competitors to be better at building good products so there are as good (or even better) than Apple is today which will push the state of the art harder and faster.

    My only concern is having the best possible kit for my specific needs every single day of my life. I care not whose brand is even though that has been Apple for all of the 21st century. If that continues to be Apple then great, if it's someone else, that's fine, too.

    IOW, my loyalty to Apple begins and ends with them serving me the best product just as their loyalty to me begins and ends with my interest in wanting their products. It's only concern.

    Hilarious considering we were just now talking about spec overkill. 1080p displays are not necessary...but 64-bit processors that don't do anything are vital, and worth advertising. Ok. 

    Yeah, kind of like that octo-core chip Samsung throws around. And benchmark cheating. Doesn't serve a vital purpose, but boy do the Fandroids lap that shit up.

    He's NOT SURE. Fear, uncertainty, and doubt always trump facts. /s

    and 

    [another pointless video]

    Clearly you don't understand what the processor does. Perhaps you might want to read up on the benefits of the new ISA in ARM64, especially how that specifically benefits apps written in Obj-C.

    If you actually do that, which Is doubtful, you can then read up on how even a 64-bit version of Android won't have the same benefits because the inherent issues with the Java virtual machine. Android OS and apps will certainly get benefits from the new ISA (eventually) but not to the same degree or ease.
