    Tbf nexus 5 battery life was appaling so not that surprising. Not sure i could go back to the restrictiveness of ios though
    My S6 is worse. Lasts about 2.5 hours but my N5 would cross 4 to 4.5 with a custom kernel

    Android has 80% global market share
    Most people I know, particularly young people, have Apple products so I was basing my comment from that fact

    Well at least now you have first hand experience not to reach conclusions based on anecdotal evidence.

    Personally I prefer Android. I really don't get why people prefer Apple... They're not exactly flexible and can't really do as much. Like, if you get an Apple product, then you can only use it with other Apple products which is really annoying. E.g. I recently found out that you can't connect with other phones via Bluetooth unless both phones are iPhones. Dayumnn... OK so perhaps Bluetooth may have died out recently but this is just one example. But then again ngl, they do look way cooler xD If only they were just more compatible!!

    Can't believe android is leading the way.....

    In the society we have today, apple is seen as something of higher standard than android.....
    That's my opinion...

    Same :five: couldn't live without that 45 min charging time. I was considering either through G4 or the S6 funnily enough.

    I don't get why Android manufacturers make phones thinner and thinner when all I want is a thicker battery. Looks like Samsung took a step in the right direction with the S7 in terms of battery life

    Yeah by the sounds of it the s7 (especially the edge) have great battery life. Yeah its kind of annoying, i mean my screen is nice and all but id happily have a hd one and better battery life. At least if i need to i can buy another battery and swap them or even buy an extended battery case but i havent had to do that yet

    Definitely a big fan of Apple products to be honest!

    To the extent that although I don't particularly like the design of the Smart Case, I'm still getting it just because...

    Personally, I prefer to use android. They're much easier to customize and easier to locate if you end up losing your android device. I've not lost mine (so far) but it's still a useful backup in case you do lose it. Getting music onto android is also much easier to do than with apple.

    I have an iPhone rn and I honestly still prefer android, a phone I had 3 years ago that cost half the price of this phone and could do more or less everything the same, not worth the money imo

    Ive only ever had android phones (because all i need is a cheap one as i dont speak to anyone).
    Ive owned (and still do own) both an ipad and an androis tablet.
    Ive had two ipads (1st gen and Air 2) and both work perfectly still!
    One of my android tablets is new so it works whereas the other one has the same specs as an ipad yet barely worked.

    Apple FTW!! Cant fault their products (just make them a littlw cheaper!!)

    I used to like Andriod, but the software becomes too slow when you've got loads of stuff in your phone. I've gotten an iPhone recently and I am really happy with it, it runs smoothly and has a better security system than Android.
