I don't know about that maybe they will just include better optics and bigger sensor inside of cramming more megapixels. Even Google is trying to shift away with SD cards because they give sluggish performance to devices but OEMS are trying to not listen and include it again since there are many customers who want that and it's a selling point. But you are right Apple charges way too much for memory upgrades
Really it doesn't look like it has what my Note 3 lacks. The camera isn't any better (8 MP and 1080p/60, my Note 3 can do 13 MP and 2160p/30 or 1080p/60). Quad core, that's nothing new. 128 GB? I imagine that model will cost around $600 and for $200 less than that I have a phone with a 128 GB card in it and 32 GB onboard. Just about the only thing this can do that my Note 3 can't do is scan your fingerprint and if I wanted that, I would just get a GS5 for STILL less than a comparable model of this phone when it releases. It has nothing extraordinary and really nothing new...well, maybe new to iPhones but nothing new as far as any other smartphone is concerned. If it has RAM in excess of 3 GB, then I will rethink my opinion but for now, more buck, less bang (as is typical of Apple for the last 7 years).
Karim, 03 Jun 2014bezels are hugeWhat happen to you guys. All the sudden everybody hates bezel on every smartphone after lg announce and launch the g2/3 series.
Just a thought but i buy 16gb second hand iPhone but what if iPhone 6 has 4k video? 16gb will be gone in no time forcing folk higher up the megabyte ladder..With Apples rip off memory upgrade will folk take them seriously...I love 4k video its future proofing for when 4k tv arrives..i can look back at videos and glad i recorded them in 4k..
I used S5 for recording 4k but was limited to 5 mins but Apples lightweight o/s may get round this but the 32GB model has to be their base model..

I really dont see what all the fuss is about.
Its slightly bigger than the 5S and has NFC, quadcore processor and has a tougher screen material. Other than that, its exactly the same as the 5S. The camera has exactly the same specs as the 5S. I really dont cant understand why iSheep insist on paying £600+ everytime a new iPhone comes out. iOS8 really isnt that impressive either, when you compare it to Android 4.0 ICS (which was released 2 years ago). When Apple first released the first iPhone everyone was WOW-ed by it because it was the first of its kind and was nothing else on the market at the time. Since then they've stuck with same idea and have barely changed anything. If Apple keeps doing this every year, people will start jumping ship and switching to an alternative OS. Ive seen it happen before. Just look where Blackberry is today, because they refused to change.

Stop being a spec whore you know to make a great phone is not all about specs. And your claim that Apple 6 won't sell well is preposterous. )
Just remember, give a man a match and a lighter and tell him to start a fire, he will use the lighter, not knowing that it is empty, other flagships like sxamsung, lg and nokia are lighters, oversized phones filled with air. apple is quality used to get it's max potential. (in case of a misunderstanding, i'm supporting apple)
