Tell me /g/ should I get a 6s plus over a Note 5? Can I even hook up a Iphone to my linux laptop? I just like the idea of having a Iphone and being able to keep it for 3 years or so.
If you're the kind of android user who would even consider getting a note 5, then yes the iPhone is better for you.
If you're ready for a real android phone then get something like a g4, 5x, or moto x pure. They're cheap and perform at the same level or very close to flagships.
having an iphone says you're a pleb who wants to look rich.
having a high end android says you know your shit.
having a low end android says you're a pleb.
mfw coworker that's probably smarter than me shows me that he got a new phone, some LG sub 5 inch on a straight talk plan. i mean that's fine if you only use it for a phone. i consider my phone a laptop replacement that makes phone calls.
In the US, everyone who uses android likes to brag about how they like the customization, and the openness of it, and 95% of them use Samshit and the preinstalled shin, and only apps on google play, so its the same deal different type of phone here.
>having a high end android says you know your shit.
kek. Everyone I know with a high end android is running the stock skin, mostly touchjizz. I know more people with jailbroken iphones than those running custom skins on android.
I have a Note 5 and recommend it, really love the pen features, the camera is great and easy to get to because of the short cut they added, there's a lot of features to compensate for the bigger screen and offer some light multi tasking that works fairly well.
I mostly use it for sketching when I'm waiting and taking quick notes here and there. Also the screen is fucking gorgeous.
I can't comment on the quality of an iphone 6 plus because I've never used one and don't care to.
The iPhone is a God tier product if you want to use it to do what a phone is supposed to do, so I'd go for the iPhone, plus the durability of an iphone is fucking amazing, the only reason for why I changed to Android is because I'm an autist that likes to have a customizable home screen.
>iPhone is a God tier product if you want to use it to do what a phone is supposed to do
I always thought the call quality sucked when I had iphones. Then again the last Iphone I had was a 4. However, it always sounded worse than my old clamshells.
Fuck you people.
For the average /g/ user a fucking moto E would be enough. Do you really need more power on a phone?
The only times it will lag is when you run a lot of apps at once or playing games (but why would you even play games?)
Well a friend of mine who isn't biased at all in terms of phones got a iphone after he lost his Z3 and he hates it. His main reasons being the lack of customization on the home screen / no dark menu option and the thing he hates most is the media transferring, that you have to use itunes and can't choose the format or just copy it onto the phone easily, also no folder based music player.
Also, don't buy samshit. Overpriced shit
>Get over yourself, organising your media library manually isn't something you should be doing in 2016. Man child.
Not him, but organizing my media library by folders is a lot more efficient that tagging music that isn't properly tagged if your collection is old.
I also like having a certain level of control over my music structure.
I know several people that use old Iphones only for chatting/phoning/browsing. Thats OK, you're only a retard if you always get the newest Ishit product and hype it.
Those Iphones have amazing build quality and run pretty fast and stable, but with massively reduced freedom.
Also Samsung is now cloning Apple, I wouldn't buy it. You could look for Xperia phones. Otherwise, I heard some Windows phones should be worth a look, when it comes to pure productivity.
Not that guy but
>implying I want to listen to music in shirty mp3 quality
Media Monkey is where it's at. Makes sorting music easy and syncing with the app on the phone.
It just werks
