    If I may,... These are things that I find myself repeating to iPhone users and nexus users alike. The way I see it, I want the proverbial "kitchen sink" of phones and as of right now, it's the note 7. below is my list for both things that iOS can't provide, and some that vanilla android can't provide.

    - Set 3rd party apps as defaults.
    - copying files directly to the phone.
    - expandable storage.
    - wireless charging.
    - Samsung pay (mst: seriously, this **** is magic. nfc is great, but useless at O.G. terminals)
    - best camera with manual controls and doubletap to launch (possible with vanilla android , impossible with iPhone (jailbreak?))
    - Dat screen
    - QC (wish it was 3.0, but whatever. still faster than anything apple has)
    - Real widgets (ex. calendar and agenda on a screen that are both actionable, scrollable feedly feed that is also actionable, google keep todo lists on a screen with different labels in quadrants. long story short, when someone wants to race to see how fast we can open our calendars, feeds, etc.. i'm done once the screen unlocks while their app is still opening.)
    - Customization (nova, action launcher, zooper, klwp,.. etc. etc.
    - S-pen (me: "hey hunny, write down this number,... wife: hold on, (starts to unlock phone to open notes on iPhone) me: "nvm, I got it" writes on screen, places phone back in pocket.

    I can keep going, but here's the reality, these vids where they're launching like 50 apps at a time and opening multiple games, that's not how I use my phone, and i'm willing to bet that 90% of peeps also don't sit there and open apps nonstop for 3 minutes. I'm currently on vacay in Japan/Thailand and have been using maps side by side with AC open so that we can get around while reading through forum posts about my new note 7 sitting at my house in florida awaiting my arrival. All while bouncing back and forth with hyperdia, tripadvisor, yelp, airbnb, pokemon go (*shakes head), and skype and guess what, no memory issues or redraws (GS7E). This is real world use and my phone performed flawlessly all while my poor wife's IP5s died midday.

    Use what you like, but let's face facts, iOS is simply not as flexible as some users need it to be. Vanilla android is adding features that manufacturer skins have added, admitting that even they need to match what others have done. If I were to cherry pick things I need daily, only one phone checks off ALL boxes, and that's the note 7.

    I also would like to mention that my wife is converting. silver and onyx waiting at home .

    if you want a phone that's quick out of the box and simple, I'm sure the Iphone is wonderful. As for the Note 7, I've never seen so many different settings abilities in one phone. I like being able to make a phone quick through my own preferences.

    Reasons people buy Samsung phones:
    "Look at the screen!"
    "The camera is amazing!"
    "I like the S Pen!"
    "The amount of things it can do is crazy!"

    Reasons people buy Apple phones:
    "They're simple"

    Couldn't have have said it better myself!...... And I would say 99.999% don't use a phone like that, pretty ridiculous video IMO.

    Oh I agree 100%. However, I'd rather have the features that I want even if they're slower by seconds, rather than not having the features at all. Nothing Is more satisfying than watching someone try to use their iPhone/nexus to pay at a home depot after I've done so with my S7E, not realizing nfc isn't available. Or, visiting an Ikea and nonchalantly dropping my phone on their wireless chargers while watching others drop their iphones on them assuming it would "just work". This is why the "kitchen sink" approach works for me. Its not a question of how long does it take me to do something on my phone as much as it's IF my phone can do something that would bother me.

    lol Exactly ....they have no widgets to worry about running in the background or anything.....Just jump from app to app to app with little to no interface.....
    ios does have widgets. You can also replace the entire keyboard and not change just the color.

    You don't have to use the phone like that to be faster. The iPhone is significantly faster in standard day to day use.

    I used the iPhone 6 Plus when it came out to try. It works but it wasn't like it somehow was light years faster than my Android phones. IMO performance is fine. I don't see people in the real world opening 6 games on their phone back to back to do it... They launch the app and do w/e it is they wanted to do with said app.

    The notification tray widgets on iOS are a LOT different than the interactive widgets on Android.

    I don't personally think asking for a more fluid and resource efficient operating system is to much to ask
    Well, if you need to open 300 apps as fast as you can in 2 minutes, stick with iOS. It's a pretty simple scenario. If you actually use your phone to get things done in the real world, the Note 7 is fantastic for that.

    Depends on the widgets you use. But they can be interactive.

    Yes you can.

    Also while you cannot set default apps at the os level you can at the app level. Any link I select in outlook opens chrome. Any link in chrome opens a Google app. I set default browsers in other apps as well.

    Enjoy your saved 0.01 seconds of time while we're wireless charging and setting 3rd party apps as defaults. That's the difference. Again, for at least the tenth time in this thread, Android users in general and especially Note 7 users will always choose more features over that saved 0.01 seconds. Yes, you can get to your app drawer faster but once you get there there's nothing for you to do.

    99.999% of people don't ever need to download an exe on their phone. Really a non issue in all but very few specialized cases.
    The iphone really isn't as locked down as you think. They've been opening up more of the OS to developers recently. Most of the standard old complaints aren't really valid anymore.
    that's because Android is stealing their lunch money

    I have used the S6+ and the Note 7. Note 7 blows the S6+ away for use experience/function and I notice no performance issues. I Do notice the better display, a lot more storage for the money, more flexible UI, OS, apps etc. Thought I would post this before mods probably lock it.

    Also. at 1080p 6+ res, the battery life is equal or better.

    What good is a widget if you have to pull down a screen to see it? Widgets need to be on homescreens where you cannot forget them nor miss them.

    Not a fanboy. Just clearing up misconceptions. The iPhone 6s plus was my first iPhone. I've owned windows phones. I've had a ton of Android phones. I have computers at home running multiple linux and windows versions as well as a mac. I've owned windows PDA's. I used an apple newton at a previous company I run it all.
    I've rooted and run a variety of roms.

    So, no, not a fanboy.

    I declare Shenanigans. I wouldn't consider milliseconds to be "significantly faster" on a feature deprived iDevice.
