Ipad Air 2 goes for 450 dollars, Iphone 6 plus - 680 Dollars. How can this phone be more expensive than an ipad by 230 Dollars? Has apple given a reason? To make it worse, it goes for 1,093 dollars in my country. I dont think the cost of compressing an ipad to a smaller iphone would cost that much. Iphone uses less raw materials than an Ipad. There should be an offset in the cost of developing a chip and the cost of reduced raw materials. That means, the better chip costs around than 400 dollars more. The difference between ipad, ipad mini and iphone is very little. I am very sure that they wanted to cash from people's appetite for a bigger screen phone, but if you dissemble an iphone, item by item and you start costing them and factoring in economies of scale, marketing costs and administrative costs, you cant arrive at such a price. For what reason would an iphone cost like a high performance laptop. Why would HP make premium laptops ans sell at a lesser price than an iphone. I will never buy an iphone so long as they keep having unjustified prices. Some people buy iphones for status, not on performance and the prices are this high, partly for this reason. After all, a phone can easily get lost, break and its simply, A PHONE

the iPhone 6+ is just too boring,sorta tired of seeing the same look over and over again. its somewhat lost its creativity. id stick with android devices any day besides, its not limited or too restricted.
If apple wants to make a powerful phone they do, but I can't stay how they stick with 1.2 front camera, still not (4K) the others are ok even Ram is enough! T
who cares about specs? Specs is just about money. If you don't want to waste your money for something you tought could be cheaper, just don't buy iphone. Buy an iPhone means we pay for an ecosystem not merely buy a product. I was a fanatic android user untill iphone 6 opened my mind about what a smartphone should be created. Functionality, eficiency for daily heavy use are much more important than specs. *just sold my note 4 few days ago*
My #1 problem is the ABYSMAL 1GB RAM. I know that iOS itself runs efficient, but have a few apps suspended and run one or two heavy media apps and the phone is paging RAM in no time. This is really inexcusable. 2GB should be the LOW END (iPhone 6) and the Plus should have 3GB. Sorry Apple, but this is atrocious. I eat WAAAAAAAY more battery in use swapping to NAND than I ever would to maintain 3GB RAM powered during standby/lock. You need to fire some engineers or management.

mean machine, 07 Feb 2015Can we share large files with wifi like in android phones by using apps like esfile exlporer?? Unfortunately, ios doesnt have a native file system that can be accessed by 3rd party app like ESfile explorer. But...
You can install virtual file explorer app in ios called usb disk. The usb disk pro allows you to transfer file through wifi (not wifi direct). Method: open usb disk pro in iphone, open a browser in pc/android and enter the ip address (i.e. http://192.168.1.xxx :8080) and you can browse the iphone files that is kept inside the USB disk app.
However it needs a router to transfer. Not like android wifi direct. I haven't got time to try to connect it to android's tethering. Maybe you can try.
Anonymous, 10 Feb 2015Crappy camera and non existing customer service. No sir, iphone 6+ Camera is great, probably even better than android (I'm a Note 3 user). Easy access from a locked screen.
Never tried the customer service. Better just google it if you have any questions. Haha.
Great battery, in normal use (no multimedia, no video, just plain phone and messaging) 12hrs = 40% usage, 24hrs = 80% usage.
Crappy file transfer between ios to pc/android, but some apps already provide connectivity through wifi. airdrop is bullshit. use USB disk pro for file keeping and transfer, use xtreme player for multimedia/movie files keeping and transfer.
Very fragile glass, my wife accidentally dropped it from 1 meter high and smashed to pieces.
ps: I love my Note 3.
sakashita, 09 Feb 2015please see oneplus oneCrappy camera and non existing customer service.
feels good to go back to iphone.
I was told how great android was, so I left Iphone back in 2012, during the years it was truly a struggle, although android is good at customizing the home, screen.... THAT WAS PRETTY MUCH IT. by a year later the phone was always craching, and I always had to reformat it, every month, it got tiring. I finally had enough, and chose the 6 plus. what a relief. Unreal how a good friend can lie to me about how good android is. stupid updates take forever to come.
[deleted post]You can install Tunein radio and have access to FM stations the world over
this is my first time using Iphone. i've bought a week ago. i just want to say it's awesome smartphone. never back to android...
I am an Apple fan past 4 years. But I am confused really which one to go for ? Whether 6 or 6 plus ? My use would be just for social applications & sometimes a few games. For calling I have another phone. Pls suggest me better of the two in terms of speed.....
