  1. Samsung have realized what Apple has years ago. Do what you can technically to impress the enthusiasts like us, but at the end of the day, we are not their target market. Enthusiasts want the very best, but would like to pay as little as possible for it, and we are a relatively small group relative to the general population. The general population do not care too much about the specs, as long as it is not noticeably slow. Furthermore, changing things drastically year-on-year is bad for business. It costs a lot and does not make too much of a difference to the general user.

  2. Exactly I'm glad you said it they work with each other and the fans argue for no reason everyone has what they like I personally like the phone that gives me the best funds for features

  3. That’s actually a lie because it actually is because the new software being pushed out isn’t very well put for old phones but my iPhone 6 does work perfectly on beta iOS 11

  4. OK everyone like if you agree with me iPads are the best tablets in the world and destroy all of the Samsung tablets and the Google tablets or really any time but with android and android dominates being one of the best smart phone operating system in the world and is way better than iOS and for PCs or computers it would be a Mac just because you don’t need to worry about something updating randomly into freezing and restarting randomly

  5. Every since iOS 11 update my 6s has slowed down but I’m not updating to IPhone X. 2018 will be time for a change…Watching Oneplus, HTC, Motorola, Nokia, and Huawei.

  6. It's embarrassing that the only profit Samsung make these days comes from Apple's pocket change. It's no wonder their next big things a Galaxy iClone X… What, I'm just saying. ??

  7. I think these benchmarks are fake since it's showing 5GB ram when Samsung are definitely putting 6GB RAM in the S9 Plus so I think the benchmarks will be much higher than this. The multicore should be around the 9000 range due to 30% increase in performance and single core should be at least 2600-3000

  8. If you have a 6s the slowdown since ios 11 is very noticable , benchmarks just confirm it. I was surprised by just how much slower my iphone 6s is compared to my galaxy s6.

  9. Apple is doing that to force people to upgrade. The 8 did not sell well and the x did not do as well as they thought. Ever since they took the headphone jack out there sells have dropped.
