i prefer iphone 5s or even 4s rather than iphone 6, 6+, because previous iphone are affordable,obviuosly worth the price. It has a good design, premium build, stable and fluid. Great iOS. Some careful consideration for sony z3 and htc m8, those phones looks promising for me. It has firm material, nice design, higher specs, and most off all, lower price. Just my opinion.

Next year apple will answer to the 64b snapdragon with a 64b quad core A9. See those words? Mark em. Having samsung, htc, and now apple the hardware is obvious. I defended android to the death, but they let me down. Good tech, just in polished. With smartphones at a plateau, mobile devices have literally become the "my CPU is bigger than yours" game. 8 core processors? Come on...... Android seems to be the kid in moms basement slamming bigger hardware in just for bragging rights..... You all know that kid, don't be him.

Pretty poor spec. I recently bought an LG G2 for £175 and it blows this phone away for a fraction of the price. Apple always seems to be for non-technical wannabes. People who want to tell people they have an iPhone rather than get a great phone at a much better price.
All of these "this phone is so 2012" posts are killing me. You are embarrassing yourself....so please stop. This so called phone from 2012 is whooping every phone on the market in benchmarks. If apples dual core processors can beat other companies quad cores....then i cant wait to see apples quad cores. Im sure android os phones will need 12+ cores to spit out the same multi core performance. Like everyone else, i was super skeptical about this phone. But its performance is there.
Look at all the bench marks. It outperforms every phone on the market except for battery life. Looking at the CPU numbers is like looking at an engine and assuming it's fast because it's big......A school bus has a big engine, it must be fast.....right? It's all about the architecture. Compare that principle anything, all companies have drastically different numbers and perform just about the same...apple/android...nvidia/amd.....Intel/amd. Educate yourself before you make retarded comments. The iphone 6 has it's flaws. It feels solid but one time of rolling over it on the bed and It could be toast....however that could be said with any of those large phones. Ios8 is premature but it will get better and more efficient. It's a solid phone in every aspect. It's funny that this so called phone from 2012 outperforms all the 2014 phones by every single company.....and yes, it is right there with the new unreleased note4. Right on par with brand new tech. Don't believe me? Look it up. If apples dual cores can complete with and beat androids quad cores......android is in trouble. I've used both android and apple now. I like them both, I just state the facts.

So this was a subjective review not an objective one.
Very disappointed, most of test results shown iphone 6 camera has many many issues and far away from best one.
But you considering it as best...
I know editor is an apple fan but it doesnt mean that he/she can't be fair!
Here is the specs of HTC One X, released in April 2012:
-4.7" HD display
-1.5 GHz Quad core CPU
-1 GB RAM
-1800 mAh battery
-protruding 8 mp camera, 1.3 mp HD front camera
That is from 2.5 years ago.
Heres me on about iphone 6 screen and its big for me so might get Nexus 6 only to see report today that it could be 5.9 inches..This is getting stupid TO ME it is supposed to be a mobile phone still thats portable and fits neatly in a pocket,,these things are stupid TO ME.
I truly love apple; its desing touch's your heart but when its come to processor i take a step back it provide only 1Gb ram & processor under 1.4Ghz. I will say only one thing you in higher range for the apple series but why there is lack of avalability. People also advertise your brand but 80 still thing its not a money wroth cell phone
Think about it
UmarSHA, 30 Sep 2014Is this RAM is DDR3 or DDR2? Please answer me....Its been DDR3 since the 5s model using Hynix RAM.
Anonymous, 30 Sep 2014I donno wich to buy... iPhone 6 or 5s? honestly like the 5s's shape and size more but still no... moreWell ive had iphone 6 an hour and at moment prefer 5s..It does feel light but very big to me.How the hell folk are loving 6+ my god that thing must be massive.
Screen is superb,audio superb fast focus video record works fast and speaker high quality with average loudness...It just looks wrong to me its like i am using an Android phone with IOS theme on it or something.
Will see over next few days but prefer space grey 5s.
Nowadays $100 android phones work so well enough for every funtions. You can't believe if you haven't seen those phones with same lcd screen of iphone. This iphone 6 is slightly better, that's all.
