Apple have been proven wrong for holding back basic common features.
Why not give people the choice of using or not using them? You pay the same price just as other flagship phone buyer.
Why make them wait years for the incremental adaptation of these feature?
its really easy to buy iPhone in usa only $27 per month that's why iPhone have strong market share but here in india it cost $999 unlock. if iPhone available in india as a $27 per month deal for two year. I guess iPhone hold 70%approx smartphone market here.
nithyakr, 12 Sep 2014What features are you talking about?
The gimmicky "S" features on Galaxy?
iPho... moreI mean common features like removable battery, SD card, dual sim, Water resistance, back button.
Apple tell you they are not needed, but Thats what they used to say about larger screen.
Is Apply copying Samsung now? Seemed they are playing catch up now instead of innovation or revolution. iPhone 6 4.7" vs Galaxy S5, iPhone 6 Plus 5.5" vs Note 4/Edge, and it's a lose-lose for Apple. It's a dead ahead for Apple.
iPhone 6 vs Lumia 920 (2012)
iPhone 6 plus specs vs Lumia 1520
Nviko, 12 Sep 2014Overpriced for 2012 specs! Fairly priced for premium build quality, premium material.
Samsung on the other hand overpriced plastic toys.

iPhone Gives you the best premium feeling, smooth experience no hiccups no lags.
Easy to use Camera and shots are 90% of the time looks professional.
Now only Samsung trying out premium materials. It took samsung long hard 5/6 years to bring premium material to Galaxy lineup.
WorksLikeMagic, 12 Sep 2014It's unlocked and works with any carrier worldwide.Wrong. It's not.
DAN13L, 11 Sep 2014When I went to the Apple website, the only full retail option was next to the t-Mobile selecti... moreThat is exactly correct. That model is not an LTE model and it is LOCKED to the T-MOBILE USA network. You can use any T-MOBILE SIM with it though.
There is a much confusion about this because many people don't realize a few things.
Phones can be locked to 1) Single SIM, 2) Single CARRIER (any SIM, 3) Single Country (any SIM/Carrier in the Country).
Also, T-MOBILE has a strange LTE spectrum because of the way they got part of the spectrum required to run LTE from AT&T when the merger with them failed.
So unless you live where one of the other frequencies that T-Mobile uses for LTE is available (which is only a few T-Mobile markets) or the radio firmware won't handle the AWS 1700/2100 split frequency, you won't get LTE with the iphone on the T-MOBILE network.
Sure Apple makes nice phones.
But it seem insane and insulting that they won't give people the features everyone else get.
Why tell people those features are not needed then add length in one year then add some more width the next?
How many more years do people have to wait for those common features?
China is making phones with higher specs under $400... and sharp has already proved near 100% bezel free phones are possible with the Aquos Crystal and crystal x.
Good price, actually.
Might pick up the 4.7" and will be ready for my next car, which will have CarPlay :)
Tim, 12 Sep 2014I don't think half the people here realise tgat this is just the phone price ... you are still... moreBuying iPhone no need to leave early.
Its sure to last for 2 years.. Even after 2 years its still live and kicking.

I don't think half the people here realise tgat this is just the phone price ... you are still uo for the service contract costs. So all T is doing is giving you interest free payments on the outright price IF you sign up for 24mths.
I wonder what the break fees will be if you leave early ....?
