  1. It’s disingenuous to say tha larger battery will have an upside. It depends entirely on how the whole phone has been ‘tuned’. It’s perfectly feasible that the iPhone might last longer on a charge. Likewise, you cannot claim that the iPhone is for beginners because the LG with Android allows for more customization. A well ordered OS shouldn’t need customizing – it should be a beautiful thing from the get go. Finally, why don’t you actually do some side by side testing? I’m not sure the reviewer has actually handled either phone.

    • Considering the cost of two phones, the Google LG Nexus 5X is worth purchasing. But iPhone 6s has a advanced configuration, if you have extra budget, you should pick it. iMyfone Space Saver for iPhone can free up iPhone space faster and make iPhone run faster. You can have a try.

  2. I’m not really a techy, but this review was extremely helpful to me! Thanks for the spec reviews and the thoughtful way you didn’t bash on either phones.
