I think Apple have missed a trick in releasing the basic version with just a measly 16gb capacity.
I did give serious consideration to buying this phone.(My first iphone) My ipod touch 64 gb(3rd gen) is now a little dated and as Apple don't seem to be supporting this product anymore I did consider getting the 6 instead. It has some neat features, the slow mo at 240 fps, the finger print security, high quality gaming, a decent camera and the updated operating systm.
On paper Apple seem to have ticked a ll the boxes then and especially in regard to screen size, I do think 4" 7 - 5 inch screen is the perfect screen size range for a smartphone and it is concerning that Android manufacturers seem to have lost sight of what a phone (a device you can can hold in one hand to make calls and also fit in your pocket) is primarily for however one gets the feeling that the 16GB variant, in particular, will soon be redundant and pretty quickly due its chronic lack of capacity. Providing only 16 GB with no micro SD card really is very poor given the cost of the device. Apple are thus forcing its followers to buy the 64 GB variant as there is little or no value in buying the 16GB version. The 64gb version though is far more expensive than its Android competitors (a good £10-15 month of a difference) so it really isn't good value for money in comparison especially given the low res screen.
All its main rivals will soon will be releasing flagships with a minimum of 32GB storage plus a Micro SD expansion slot. Apple will be forced to respond and to compete its 'S' version will need to have at a minimum, 32GB storage plus support for 4K recording and perhaps a full HD screen, thus rendering the 16GB variant obsolete. In saying that if the new Androids don't inspire a purchase though I might just hold off and wait for the release of the iphone 6s.
Anonymous, 19 Jan 2015if you can't afford it, then don't buy it :) good things are expensive...yes. I too share your iphone mentality. I am debating where to go on my holiday. Tickets to Afghanistan seem to be quite expensive right now, but that means it's good. Also, Justin Bieber is having a gig, it's £30 more than a Radiohead one, so I rather go to Bieber, Radiohead is for cheap people who can't afford it lol x
Well sad to state that I sold my iPhone 6 after 3 months of use to get a Samsung note edge and have the following statement.
IPhone 6 : lag free but slippery and limited to use
Samsung note edge : may lag to big games but innovative and will never bore u.
Download whatever tones or songs or videos without the need of any software in your pc.
I miss is but will forget it sooner once I am used to android.
Please apple why your implied profit margin is around 100% ? Take less profit around 20 % your phone actually cost is just $230 . And you will be not only reach but responsible too.

So after a lot of evaluation, reviews and contemplation, I have reached a c... moreThe same thing was told when iPhone 4S vs iPhone 5.
People was shouting iPhone 5 is ugly compared to iPhone 4S, the tall remote control joke even.
Guess people's preferences will change going on.
to all android user who will read this, the best test to a smartphone if you want to see its best is for gaming. try to compare all that android sucks in gaming in my iphone. lets see
BOTCHED UP DESIGN
So after a lot of evaluation, reviews and contemplation, I have reached a conclusion that Apple has messed up its iphone looks. The shape of 5s is the best ever shape I have seen. The edges of 6 are not only slippery but unattractive as well.
Before its launch I wanted to buy one but abandoned the idea because of its looks. The company must go back to its 5s design and iphone 6 size.
Well, Dear 6 users, please don't feel offended, its my personal opinion.
Anonymous, 19 Jan 2015Okay granted this is a very good phone with an amazing camera and very intuitive software, wha... moreYou could in fact change on the spot / or swap with Apple without any payments should you see that.
If their QC is bad, Apple's loss. Not ours.
I never experience bad QC on regards to new models.. look like isolated events.

Hey, but my N6 loads game at an instant.faster than iphone 6 (maybe he wasnt using a stock N6)
Okay granted this is a very good phone with an amazing camera and very intuitive software, what I'm now seeing with Apple iOS devices (and even Macs for that matter) is how common it is to get brand new units with dents, scuffs, scratches or dead pixels out the box! Apple's QC is definitely going down - Ironically there was a BBC report in December on how their testing line had workers napping on the job!) I've used so many Android phones and almost all of them never had any "cosmetic" problems out of the box.

IPhone 6 has lot better graphics and yet the iPhone is the smoothest, android optimization is really bad as usual.

Limantara, 16 Jan 2015Hi Pluto, I note that you use Sony Z3 Compact and I like you analysis. I am thingking of bu... moreHey, my Z3 c only heats when I'm playing games for over a long time like 30 minutes. It starts to heat up a bit also when browsing for a long time. But it takes a lot for the phone to heat up which impressed me. The camera is perfect in low light indoors and outdoors, I take selfies a lot and I'm very happy with it! Just get the white or black version from a certified store in your country because most ppl get it online shipped for a lot cheaper then the phone gives them problems but I got mine at a store and no problems. The colour versions have some sort of glass problem at the back so get white or black.
Some think think this phone has best design but I don't agree with them. This phone has greater top and bottom edges than other phones and suitable for at least 5.2" phone if reduced these unnecessary waist edges. Next thing is camera lens is like tower on the plain surface. If this camera were designed by other asian companies western reviewers would laugh at it.
