The hardware cost for apple would be less than $200. profit would be more than double the build cost. Truly innovative company to truly greedy company.
All iFans, please buy iPhone because you are not just buying iPhone but also doing charity.

Adding more ram is definately goi... moreI have been in IT for years (A+, CCIE, MCSE plus B.S. in Computer Forensics and M.S. in IS Management). I use Android because it is faster and more flexible. The hardware of the Galaxy S5 is light years ahead of Apple and the iPhone. I use Cricket (AT&T's prepaid) and couldn't be happier. More RAM is definitely no gimmick. Multitasking is a thing I value highly. Moreover, the photo quality on an Android rivals anything an iPhone can do. What else to say?
SamsungDeveloper, 09 Sep 2014no IR, no water resistance, no bigger cam, no OIS, no camera features (as many as Samsung or L... moreYes, in the last few years Apple are slowly copying Android.
Maybe the Iphone 13 will have luxuries like USB drag & drop on any computer without the need for extra software, (I'm looking at you Itunes!) or QI charging?
TAFB, 10 Sep 2014ENOUGH ALREADY!!! everybody CTFD iphone 6 is by far the world's best smartphone not to mention... moreThis hardware config is the same stuff Android has had for years. Android is now up to 16 megapixel cameras, higher screen resolutions, and better CPUs. Quite simply: You are biased and closed minded. You have no ability to see past the end of your nose. Apple is persistently 2 years behind. All that, plus their interface and software structure has never changed since day one. I give Apple credit for one thing: Sparking the energy behind the smartphone market. But that in no wise makes them the best.
Iphone 6 has good size but lacks 2014 features
Iphone 6 Plus is too big but has some 2014 features
The Iphone 6 needed the features of the 6 plus, in the box of the 6. I consider both these phones a FAIL.
Everyone I know is so disappointed. The iphone 6 is a Galaxy S3. Apple stock closed down today. I was hoping Apple would at least catch up to 2012 phones but Tim Cook is a loser. Bye Apple, it's been good knowing ye but the iphone is dead. Good luck with your huge android copy watch. Note 4 it is!
chavocarlos, 09 Sep 2014Piece of cake ... Currently I have 200+ apps in my Nexus 4 and works like a charm!!!Totally agree,
My mothers Nexus 4 is as fast as the day I bought it her. Doesn't seem to matter what is thrown at it.
20 Tabs open in chrome, 10 apps open in the background....No problem.
Even my G2 mini look better than this :) i have the gold variant... iPhone 6... nothing inovative, nothing special... On g2 and similar phones i love the most position of power and volume buttons they are on the phone rear cover, also has ir remote... That is inovation!!! not the crappy expensive iphone...ok, its made from pure metal... i dont wanna inox plate with glass cover... Even my other phone lumia 625 has better wow effect when i see and use it... Cortana is awsome.. Windows 8.1 is the best :) Kit Kat is pretty good too... Someone say... Apple died with Steve Jobs... I m affraid he is wright...No more simplicity, Inovations... no more performance, high and stuff... no more shine and wow effect...
expert, 09 Sep 20141 gb of ram on apple 6 running ios 8, is faster than 4 gb of ram on android devices, so stop b... moreFaster than a LG, HTC, Sony or Samsung running some crappy Android skin maybe....
Faster than my 1 year old Nexus 5 or my mothers 2 year old Nexus 4, Hell no.
ENOUGH ALREADY!!! everybody CTFD iphone 6 is by far the world's best smartphone not to mention OS on their apple watch is waaaaaaay better than samsuck's ooh! yes that includes.... well you got that right.
hahahhaa... i burst of laugh
no 2gb ram, no water resistant and no crystal sapphire..
LG G2, 09 Sep 2014I have been watching all the rummors and leaks of iPhone 6 for a few past months, and even on ... moreYou are correct and apple are different because of the architecture. The don't require a huge amount of resources to run. But at what cost? Can't connect to anything other than a iPhone, no third party apps, and updates adding on basic add ons. It took soooooo long for YouTube to get to ios, and the ability to use NFC, even landscape mode has only been added. And for big screens, its been done alot, other companies have moved to curved screens. How long will it take apple to apply that. The specs and upgrades on the iPhone 6 are really bad, sure look at galaxy note 4, it kills it on everything from ram, screen resolution, camera quality, battery time, cpu power and functions. Look apple do great products, but the whole apple leads with innovation is long gone and its a game of catch up, not leading.
All apple products are EXTREMELY over rated by media compared to the other vendors and by the people who are enjoying spending thier money on something they feel is unique and expensive !
LadyMephisto, 09 Sep 2014Would someone pls tell me the WIDTH, in inches, of the iPhone 6. I don't really understand th... moreThe width is 0.27 inch=6.9 mm. The is how slim or thick the device is. For comparison it slimmer than the galaxy s4, iphone 5, 5c and 5s.
Camera is shameful. It looks like camera sensor size is 1/3", which is really poor comparing to Sony Z2 or Galaxy S5. Looks like this iPhone is to skip, like it was with iPhone 4, and to wait for 6s...
200+ apps on Nexus 4..Are you sure this dsn't slow the device? I have about 200 apps on samsung core but its terribly slow..I thought apps slow the devices...
Anonymous, 09 Sep 2014And can you tell us what the 1gb can not handle?with 1 gb ram, you can run only like 5 apps at once. on android with 2 or 3 gb ram you can run every app on your phone and go back to them an hour later and be right where you left it.
