I have only had the phone a couple of days, I really like it with one exception. The power button is now on the side. When I squeeze it to put phone to sleep, I'm also pressing the buttons on the other side. Would prefer the button to be placed back on the top.

iOS hides all the complexity from the user.
Android throws all function available to the user, its like saying "there! I don't care how you take a picture, just tweak it yourself!"
While Android showing more function is good for experience photographers. iOS works for all ages.
As for 8MP or 16MP, it does not show the quality of the sensor, or how much light is focus on the sensor. But by reviews of photograph of iPhones, you can tell the 8MP sensor is awesome compared to competing brands of 13MP or 16MP.
Always remember, its the OS that uses the camera module, not the person. And when it comes to capturing life's best moments, its better to rely on the fast action of a computer OS then human reaction. iPhone 6 does that very well, all pictures comes out perfect.
its not just 8mp go read more about the iSight camera and get some hands on the practical part of it.....you'll realize why instagram was first an only iOS app
Design, Features and Performance:
Headphones and music quality - unsurpassed by any other phone manufacturer out there (this is a music player first and a phone-pc-camera-gps-gaming device... second)
Screen - 4.7 inch screen is perfect for one hand use, beautiful high definition ips with vibrant colors and brightness
Home button - seperate so it doesn't take up screen any screen room, very responsive, finger print reader (easy unlock or verification), "Reachability" - double-tap to bring down top of screen.
Mute/Silent button - don't need to take out the phone to swipe screen just click down on the button
Aluminum body - the phone is thin but feels solid and well made, also not bulky even with case on
Software - iOS is constantly updated so you be disappointed not being compatible with certain games/apps, 1GB ram is plenty for iOS no lag whatsoever even when playing 2 games at the same time while browsing and watching videos
Camera - excellent quality for a phone (if you're really into photography you wouldn't be using a camera phone anyway)
Carrier compatibility - compatible with any carrier around the world.
Hopefully this helps someone.
lossprevention, 24 Feb 2015Thank you for your comment, you are probably correct, I was just trying to bring across that f... moreOnce and for all folks, I had no intention of bashing Iphone and I really don't think I did, All I wanted to say was it is not for me, at least right now, I seem to have sparked a feud among users of both which was not my intent, however I do believe I have the right to voice my concerns in both the turbo reviews has well as the iphone reviews since I HAVE had both, or had, I have the discussions with both my sons who are in their mid thirties and there is a lot they disagree with as well. I believe all of us are stubborn when it comes to our preferences but that's good not a bad thing. Yes I do try to learn even at my age but it is hard to change at my age. I originally only wanted to ask some questions and also voice my feeling and somehow it got turn around into a pissing match. I could care less if its android or ios. Which ever phone works best for you is what I was trying to bring across, Im not going to mention any of my concerns anymore in this setting, I believe it just breeds more questions and issues than constructive answers.

I think the reason why that button doesnt exist is that Apple doesnt want you to close those apps. Its not like android you can leave everything "open" so if you want that option to keep the multitask bar clean i understand, but if you want to use it to close all the apps because they might slow your device etc. dont worry, you can leave everything in the multitasking window, for example i have 75 apps there currently :)

I have years of android , and only android , i never owned a iphone before , and now after a week i can say i learned alot about it , and for me , i repeat for me is the best phone i can have, it suits all my needs. And yes maybe i am arrogant but after one week i can say that i am not going back for android. And no i didnt buy the phone for the image or for being fancy , there are alot of phones that look really hot. I bought it to give iPhone a try and i am not dissapointed at all. A user few comments before asked me about bugs in the ios 8 ... well seriously ? Android has hundreds and hundreds of bugs that no one gives a fk for fixing them and i can let you know that in ios 8.1.3 allmost everything is fixed. I am not saying that ios is the best or iPhone is the best phone ever , still there are futures in android that i love and i would love to have on ios ( like the button to close all apps at once , landscape everywhere , or plug in and use it as a media drive , even though i send files on iphone with "send anywhere" app , from pc or android and is alot more faster and more convinient for me , to not stick in and out the usb all the time...about the micro sd card... i dont miss it , 64 gb are more than enough for me , and i can back up everything through cloud dropbox etc and have them on pc with just a click , and the list can go on with pro's and con's ) Just a little reminder everything i said i refeer only to me , myself and I ! I dont claim iPhone is better than any android phone or anything else , it is just better for me . And i dont care i paid much more than it is worthin and i could buy something better with that money , i dont need something better and i am satisfied with what i need and have...

Just like a watch, you never ask what processor is running in the watch, so long as it shows you accurate time. Same with iPhones. Its the results that counts.
I do not know whats the hate with all the comments here, but i can tell you. Besides connecting to non-Apple devices. This phone rocks!

But I do appreciate any good information instead of feelings,so thank you.

Interesting this guy didnt say what was wrong about it, so we could have maybe helped him if its possible. But most stupid thing is say something is bad and doesnt say why.
Same if i try android phone, i have used iPhone for 5 years so android just doesnt feel right, i still dont spend my time in android phone areas talking how bad android is.
For 56 years old who havent grew with tech, the learning curve is also lot bigger to get used to new things, thats also fact.

Is it worth buying the iphone 6? In my country there is no contract system and you have to end up churning out the whole amount for the phone which is damn expensive.And this phone still fails to impress me but I am attracted to IOS. Please suggest

And if you do admit learning, Good. Why not learn more about iOS/OSX? Why not learn more about iPhone? Why so many companies still continue to compare with iPhones?
Learning longer does not mean learn alot. Nor is it wise to use your age status as an argument, you do that for teens trying to beat down a child. Adult should compete with reasoning, not by physical or age.

People buy the phone that fits your needs, that's it, I'm a 56 year adult who does not have the time for this nonsense,I'm glad Duet does, when hes looking at all the phone reviews from all the manufactures. I just wish people could meet and see each of us in person and then let them see who is truthful.

People judge for yourself and get the phone that works for yourself, I'm a 56 year adult who hasen't the time to play games with this kid.
