Apple may release a cheaper iPhone in the coming spring
While everyone is rejoicing the new Apple iPhone 6S and 6S Plus, some people ask the question – why hasn’t Apple brought out a less-expensive iPhone like the iPhone 5C yet? Now an analyst from Brean Capital, Ananda Baruah says that Apple may in fact bring out a cheaper handset in the next coming spring. Although Apple may surely be working on the next big iPhone, presumably the iPhone 7, releasing a cheaper version now would not be a bad idea.
Google claims the camera in the Nexus 6P is much better in low-light conditions than the iPhone

The Nexus 6P especially, has larger pixels and is optimized for indoor photography and gives great low-light camera performance. The Nexus 6P has a 12 MP rear camera and an 8 MP front camera. Google actually showed off the better camera by comparing it to the iPhone’s camera to prove that the 6P’s camera takes better low-light shots.
