What customers say about "Display"
Apple iPhone 6 Factory Unlocked GSM 4G LTE Cell Phone
  • It's a very nice iphone. I love it. The pictures are better and the display (screen) more large
  • The Retina display is the same as it has been since the iPhone 4. 326 pixels per inch is a good looking display overall.
  • The brightness is outstanding and it also drops very low too, which is a benefit if you are trying to read something in a dark room.
  • The brightness and pixel density has improved which ideally means you will find watching videos much better. Owing to a better graphics procesor the iPhone 6 is better for reading, viewing videos.
  • My Iphone 6 died after 3 months of use. I didn't drop it, but the display suddenly stopped responding and vertical lines appeared.
  • I bought this phone in november and it was working find, but then I tryed to remove the screen protector and the display went off too
Samsung Galaxy S5 (G900A) Unlocked Android Smartphone, 4G LTE, 16GB GSM - (Black)
  • Amazing screen resolution and highly sensitive touch screen
  • The display is very vivid and very responsive, in fact it really surprised me. You can have the s5 in a clear plastic bag and have clear gloves on and use the device perfectly with no problems. (Without increased touch sensitivity)
  • The screen is bright, crisp and big enough to be able to use it as a navigation system in my car or to view videos
  • This is my husband's absolute favorite phone. Big screen big not as large as the note... more pocket friendly. Great graphics, functions well.
  • I can see bits of glue where the screen is affixed to the shell. I'd call that sloppy work.

What customers say about "Processor"
Apple iPhone 6 Factory Unlocked GSM 4G LTE Cell Phone
  • The software is clean, smooth, and works well, especially when upgraded to IOS 10.
  • It comes in configurations of 16GB, 64GB, and 128GB in terms of storage size. It has a A8 chip and 1GB of RAM which could certainly be higher in order to not have to keep refreshing tabs in Safari and have apps not crash as much.
  • This phone can be used by you in a variety of ways, whether that be for business or pleasure. Through the App Store you can download games, picture editing applications, word processor applications, company applications, and almost anything else you can think of!
  • Slightly faster processor than the iPhone 5
Samsung Galaxy S5 (G900A) Unlocked Android Smartphone, 4G LTE, 16GB GSM - (Black)
  • The processor is much faster than my Samsung tablet. The WiFi is also much better. Although it is an unlocked phone, it is still designed for AT&T, but it's a very good phone.
  • Fast processor and fast connection on my wifi network when compared to other devices on my network
  • I'm not a gamer, but I can only imagine playing games on this phone would be delightful
  • It's typical Samsung software installed. Tons of bloatware that much of it can't be disabled and constantly uses processor. I would like the device a lot better if there was an option to drop all their junk ware.

What customers say about "Camera"
Samsung Galaxy S5 (G900A) Unlocked Android Smartphone, 4G LTE, 16GB GSM - (Black)
  • Fantastic camera & video (better than my own stand alone's). So customizable!
  • I bought this for the camera quality, which is exceptional. I have no complaints and have experienced no disappointments
  • The camera takes terrible photos, it will often eat my texts so I never know that someone tried to get a hold of me
  • The camera is good but the images I took looked washed out compared to my s3. The stock camera app comes with plenty of features for you to fool with.
  • I hands down love everything about this phone more so than an iPhone other than the camera. The camera can be slow to start up. The camera also does not take close up pictures as well as my previous iPhone

What customers say about "Features"
Apple iPhone 6 Factory Unlocked GSM 4G LTE Cell Phone
  • The touch ID on this phone is also very accurate. Unlike the 5s, this one recognizes finger prints near spot on. Overall this is by far the best phone I've ever had
  • Touch ID works flawlessly. Battery life is great. I don't have any of the "effects" modified, and I'm on my phone quite a bit.
  • Item arrived on time and without any issues. The iPhone was flawless as described and came with original charger and headphones.
  • Thumbprint scanner is excellent and almost never fails.
  • Video buffering in Safari browser such as Netflix takes quite a while, even while getting 25-30Mbps.
Samsung Galaxy S5 (G900A) Unlocked Android Smartphone, 4G LTE, 16GB GSM - (Black)
  • I just got this phone today, did all the set up & I really like it, love the fingerprint feature & the ease of setting it up. All my contacts did not move over from my memory card, but that's ok.
  • We love that it has the option to add a micro SD card for additional storage space.
  • Love the fact that it has microUSB, replacable SIM card and battery though.
  • I love all the features such as S Health (heart rate monitor), the fingerprint unlock feature, gorilla glass, water-resistance, dust-resistant (or proof, not sure), and gestures.
  • The only disappointment so far is that the S Voice, voice recognition, will not wake up by voice command when you are using a Bluetooth device.

What customers say about "Power"
Apple iPhone 6 Factory Unlocked GSM 4G LTE Cell Phone
  • The phone does everything I'd like it to. Battery life is not the greatest.
  • This phone has worked very well since day one. Even the battery was a good quality battery that hasn't caused problems like the last one I ordered.
  • Battery life is one area that the iPhone 6 could definitely stand to improve. Fast or wireless charging would be nice, but I would also like to see the ability for the phone to just have a larger battery that lasts longer.
  • The battery didn't last long. I could see the battery percentage dropping from 100% to 90% in less than 10 minutes.
Samsung Galaxy S5 (G900A) Unlocked Android Smartphone, 4G LTE, 16GB GSM - (Black)
  • Replaceable battery.
  • The battery typically lasts one to two days of moderate use without charging and charges quickly with the provided charger.
  • Battery life good, and is a little better than the S4. Due to travel, I have several spare batteries so I usually have a battery around to swap out if needed for all day usage.
  • The battery does not last long on this phone.
  • The battery is complete garbage. From 100% to 85% in 45 minuets when not even being used. Budget extra for a battery if buying from this seller.
