What is it?

What does that sentence even mean in english ?

Is "WCS 30" a new standard above LTE at 2.3GHz for E-Ultra ?

I thought, pretty much, lately, all the phones were quad frequency.

Since UMTS (4G) came to town, there are more than 4 bands to worry about

The move to software based radios has enabled breaking that original
hardware wall. I believe the iPhone 6s supports 29 frequencies now.
(although this may represents blocks within a frequency group, for
instance, 700mhz has 5 paired blocks A B C ,C1 and C2 (some countries
may have carved them up differently)  and then 1 each of upload and
download D and E which few phone support).

So from a marketing point of view, you could claim 700 as 1 frequency or 5.

The different blocks start to matter when AT&T and Verizon start to use
predatory practices. They got handset manufactiurers including Apple to
not support 700-A "because of interference". This is the 700 block that
T-Mobile had gotten.  (they did the same to delay by many years the
iphone's support of 1700 for 3G, which is what T-Mobile was using its
1700 for).

LTE Advanced is not unique to iPhone.


August 13, 2015 -

    Bell first in North America to introduce Tri-band LTE Advanced, the
fastest mobile network technology available

Speeds of up to 290 Mbps with the new Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ and Galaxy
Note5 smartphones available from Bell next week


(Note: Telus network shares with Bell, so Telus is likely to make
similar claims but with different handsets).

How does "LTE Advanced" differ from "LTE" or "4G/LTE" ?

And, which of the big four carriers have it?

What does that even mean ?

Every basic 802.11n WiFi radio is MIMO !

Was the older iPhone not even basic 802.11n ?

no it doesn't. its price is comparable to other similar phones.

the galaxy note 5 actually costs *more*.

but why let facts get in the way.

The Nexus 6 is far better on almost all important features than the iPhone 6s.
And, you can buy more than TWO Nexus 6 phones, for the price of one iPhone 6s!

Apple is great at separating people from their money.
That's why they are the most profitable company in the world.
That people overpay (by double) for an iPhone is why it's the most profitable
product in the world.

You can't have such profits without people paying double what it's worth.

This was the first link I looked at:
"Determining a victor is rather tough, especially when there?s not a  
single phone that greatly proves to deliver the better performance over  
the other. With that in mind, we can certainly agree at the very least,  
that you won?t be disappointed picking up either of them"

So doesn't really grok with your hyperbole. Plus, an entry-level

Worth is meaningless. You can only charge as much as people are prepared  
to pay for something. Apple have the ability (for whatever reason) to  
charge more than many. Samsung products are around the same price or  


One also has to wonder if Google makes any money on their hardware at  
all. Their model is based purely around services and advertising, hence  
why all their stuff is 'free'. Are they selling phones with low margins  
just to ensure their userbase?

that's exactly what they're doing. amazon does the same with the kindle.

apple doesn't make their money by mining user data or pushing ads.

Actually they do. They broker ads that app makers agree to have in their
apps. So when app maker agrees to ads, Apple provides the ads and gives
a protion of proceeds to the app maker.

Of course, this is not as huge a piece of the business as it is for Google.

Secondly, while Nexus 5 was sold likely at cost, the Nexus 6 was sold at
a profit for Google.

in other words, you're picking which features to compare.  

the only fair comparison is with *all* features.

compared to an iphone 6s, the nexus 6 lacks a 64 bit processor,
advanced lte, a fingerprint sensor, 3d touch and live photos, just to
name a few.

also keep in mind that the nexus series is subsidized by google so
you're not actually paying the full retail price. google makes money by
monetizing users with ad revenue.

no you can't.

when the nexus 6 came out last year, it was the same price as an iphone
6:

<http://www.androidcentral.com/nexus-6
  The Nexus 6 finally arrived in the Play Store in mid-October,
  starting at $649 in either blue or white colors, but was severely
  limited in availability until U.S. carriers started to sell it in
  early November.

since the nexus 6 is now last year's model and because it didn't sell
that well, google has cut the price by $150, so it now starts at $500
on the play store.

Maybe so. The only useful comparison is with those feaure that are
relevant to me. I agree that's hard to generalize, so one should read
different comparisons from different paople and discard those, that look
at irrelevant stuff.

No, definitely so.

The only valid comparison is one that takes everything into account -
something apparently some (including you) are unwilling to do. That's
all well and good; just don't expect the rest of us to ignore things you
wish to ignore just because it's more convenient for you to ignore them.

Everything that is important to you.

Say you are a man and the phone has some feature that is of use only to
women. That feature has no use to you. So the fact that phone 1 has that
feature and phone 2 doesn't means that both are equal since phone 1 has
a feature of 0 value to you.


And when comparing specs on the "tech specs", it is not only impossible
to compare fairly because manufacturer s never put exactly the same
stuff on (for instance, Apple doesn't put CPU speed or RAM amount), but
often the specs can be misleading.

For instance a 8MP camera for an apple phone may appear to be inferior
to a 12MP camera on some Samsung on the specs. But when you dig deeper
and use your own experience, you may find the camera on the iphone
actually yields better pictures because of better exposure and colour
balance etc etc.

Similarly, the user interface on one phone may be better than on
another, yet, this is a highly pejorative measure and worse, one which
requires expereicne on both phones before a judgement can be made.

It is not fair to compare a phone with which you hyave years of
experience  against a new phone on which you have 5 miniutes experience
and haven't learned any of the tricks to truly use it effectively.

So it truly isn't easy to compare two phone.
