    I have to concur. Android is no where near the same as it was 3 or 4 years ago. Not even close. It has gotten a lot better. Once iOS was the cream of the crop but I believe they falling off some. I currently have the 6 Plus and my phone once and awhile acts like it doesn't want to type when I press buttons...gets stuck in landscape once and awhile too. So iOS has its issues as well. I'm currently debating on getting the S6....just not quite sure yet. Still weighing my options.

    I like the Galaxy s6 edge. The screen looks great, and it does look very refined compared to previous galaxy phones. However, I love my space grey 128gb iPhone 6+ so much that I will probably not upgrade until it falls apart and stops working.

    I guess it boils down to which system you prefer. It is those small stutters in android that gives me the feeling that I'm not on a premium experience. On IOS everything is just so smooth that it feels like premium system. Some people don't mind this but I do. Oh you can experience stutters in IOS too, but it requires you to install a 3rd party keyboard 😄

    On those 6 plus problems, well I have heard that those are 6 plus-only bugs. Dunno is it rendering problem or what but my six is free of those.

    My wife has the S6 in gold platinum and wow that color is gorgeous. In comparison her brother has the 6+ in gold and there is no comparison the S6 gold looks better. As far as using the phone her S6 doesn't really lack anywhere and the screen cant be beat.

    My child's 5c, iPad 4 and iPad mini 3 alll have their random issues just like anything else. Sometimes they freeze, sometimes they don't react to any input, random stuff. It's really just lying if you say your phone just runs perfectly every day, all day. Not a chance.

    The Galaxy S6 is an amazing device as is the iphone 6. Just depends if you want flexibility vs familiarity.

    I got an s6 edge on Sunday and by Thursday I had exchanged it for an iPhone 6 plus lol with that being sad I've tried android devices countless times and just cannot find the same user experience I get with an iPhone. Every time I use an android device I'm wow for couple hours after that I'm like ok now this is to much on top of to much lol. Android I think does one thing very well and that's complex there os

    I do like the "theme" feature they implemented right into the software. And the font feature that they've had forever now. Only things I'm missing from jailbreak right now. Other than that I just couldn't fall in love with Samsung devices.

    Then I'm a liar. My iPhone 6 Plus, my iPad Air 2 and wife's iPhone 6 all run perfectly. All day. every day. Are there improvements to be made? Sure. But my iOS devices do run pretty darned well.

    That's what I figured. It's a great phone.

    It's not the phone, but the company. I don't do Samsung. Yes, I know they make the internals on some stuff I have, but I can't control that.

    Is it the child's device that freezes, or a poorly coded app that freezes ?

    Flexibility vs familiarity ? If you say so... You've never seen how a Mac, iPad, and iPhone work together. Drop the cliche's please.

    Never had Mac so that experience is yet to be seen. Many people do say that continuity is an awesome feature.

    I switched from the 6 plus to the galaxy s6. The s6 camera and screen are way better. Battery life is better on the 6 plus obviously but the quick charge on the s6 makes it a lot less painful. I really like the s6. My iPhone was doing the same things yours is. I might get the next iPhone if they smooth it out and give it some more powerful specs.

    The only good Android phone would be a developer edition or a nexus phone. They are stock, no touch wiz or anything to that effect. It in essence is like an iPhone. It's strictly software from Google. Nothing from the phone manufacturers or carriers on it. All that extra software in my opinion is why Android has such problems. I switched to Android for about three years. I went through about dozen phones, never happy. Worst was LG, most tolerable was Samsung. Best was Nexus and Developer editions. Finally back to Apple as of last November. I WILL NEVER GO BACK!

    Whatever they do its always the bad android , iOS is the best !
    Than we can talk about hardware , it can be good but not better than iPhone !

    I used a lot of android devices and I know what I'm talking about !
    They make me angry when they say that android is easier !
