    Apple's restrictive and highly oppressive grip on iOS takes the fun out sometimes. I hope that helps.
    And yet it is the "restrictive and highly oppressive grip on iOS" that makes it a safe and secure platform for those with no interest in jailbreaking. There are definitely times when issues arise, but by and large, iOS is more secure because of Apple's "walled garden" approach. And for the majority of users, it does still "just work".

    Out of the box, the iPhone is limited on customizations because it's made to run efficiently for the 95% of users who don't care about these tinkering functions...they just want the device to be optimized, efficient and reliable, and that is exactly what Apple delivers
    Perfectly describes me. Whether it is watching a baseball game, updating an Excel spreadsheet, checking email, or mirroring a PowerPoint through my classroom AppleTV, I require reliability and efficiency. My iPhone delivers every time. As long as Apple produces iPhones that out of the box meet 95% of their customers phone needs, the company is going to continue to be the top player in the mobile device industry.

    Android is not always lagging behind the Apple, the title you said, What does Apple need to do to compete better new S6 and S6 Edge, in fact lots of Android devices are better than iPhones or iPads in hardware configuration, higher definition, NFC, multiple core CPU. Personally I think those Android phones made the development of cell phone hardware. Apple needs to improve its hardware, but it haven't take any radical actions.

    Apple doesn't need to drastically improve hardware to match the spec sheets of many Android phones. If a dual core iPhone with 1 GB of RAM performs as well, if not better, than a quad/hexa/octa core Android phone with 2-3 GB of RAM, why would they need to upgrade? Playing the spec comparison game between the iPhone and Android phones is an exercise in futility.

    I think what Apple needs to do compete against not just the S6 but Android in general is to allow some customization. Say...themes. Allow themes for iOS right out of the box. No jailbreak needed. A theme could include icon sets and fonts. That would go such a long way to appeasing a lot of people. Not interested? Don't theme. Apple should implement this and there would be tons of themes created. If Apple has to strengthen iOS to support themes, then so be it. God rest his soul, Steve Jobs is gone and in IMO so should be limitations he envisioned.

    A theme feature, like the one in Sense 7 on the One M9, would be great. I personally love the look of iOS, but for those that want some customization, I don't think it would hurt to have themes.

    I'm trying to figure out if whatever it is you're on is really good stuff or if you got completely ripped off.

    I normally don't get involved inwhich toy/car/smartphone/ect. is better than the next, but when I'm out and about in the "REAL WORLD", I see more iPhones than Androids or any other platform for that matter everywhere I go. That alone tells me who's actually trying to play "catch up" and the ones that don't have iPhone stare with envy. Androids are good smartphones for some, and iPhones are good for others and Blackberry, Windows ect. are good for who wants them.. Everyone and I mean everyone uses their phone differently. I choose to use iPhones because that's what works BEST for ME....It's really just that simple.....Just my .02 cents.

    I could not have said better!
    "Which phone is better?" varies on individual preferences.
    And because I prefer iOS does not mean the other ones are crap, haha XD
    I am a VW gal, even if some might not like them. What matters is that I do =)

    I don't know but I do know my Note 3 will be the last I buy if they make the Note without a removable battery and expandable memory.

    Samsung is making me mad by removing those trademark features I love.

    Actually, I'd put it another way:

    Samsung phones are hot pieces of garbage that I will never touch. To me, they are absolutely crap. I will not be convinced otherwise, and in my mind, I am absolutely right.

    However, a Samsung fan would likely disagree and might even think my phone of choice is crap. And, in his own mind, he is right.

    But you know what? We don't have to agree about what is crap and what isn't crap. We're two different people; it's okay for us to have two different opinions. My opinion that Samsung is crap should not affect others' self esteem, so they shouldn't be mad. It's not a personal attack; it's an opinion about a phone.

    Now, if someone is so wrapped up in their phone that they can't separate an opinion about a phone/OEM from a personal attack, then that's their problem...

    I used to be a Samsung fan... But it didn't last.
    Personally I think deep down, my brain works better with IOS than Android, period.
    But while I was easily dazzled by Samsung's bells and whistles, I found zero consistency in their system.
    Every software update was a nightmare.
    Eventually I made the full switch after hopping between Apple, Samsung, Motorola and even Blackberry and I couldn't be happier.

    Yet... I often meet people who swear by Android and absolutely adore their Samsung phones, so obviously, Samsung has its niche of customers.
    ... I just don't find daily software induced headaches to be the ideal turn on, though.

    I have to be honest, I like my Note 4 a lot. I'm just not sure how I'm going to feel about the Note 5 depending on what it does and doesn't have. I'm pretty sure, though, that I'll like the 6 Plus' replacement. I may end up with both, we'll just have to see.

    Why is it that you choose iPhones because those are what works best for you while others with Android phones "stare with envy"? That's unfair. Why isn't it that many Android people are also choosing what works best for them?

    It is a sad for Note fans but who knows, perhaps some will hop over to iOS. I'm just happy that my Note 4 is in like-new condition. Gotta keep it that way as it may be the last of the great Samsung phones for a while.

    I think so, especially since I think they can even be found with decent discounts/rebates. If your Note 3 has Lollipop how is the S Pen doing in S Note now? Mine didn't behave so good after it got the Lollipop update.

    That's one thing I haven't had to worry about with iOS. The updates haven't borked anything on my iPhones (that I've noticed).
