ohhhh great... How many year behind competitors? 3-4? I am pretty sure Apple was not rushing to "new and unproven" technologies like water proofing until they were sure it is best for their customers... surely... appalling
If you can't afford it then don't buy it.
If you don't like it then buy a different phone
WOOOOW! apple is bezt! they invented waterproofness! i bet apple will soon invent wireless charging and stuff! LOL, android is miles behind!!! apple forever, my biggest love.

Aniket, 26 Apr 2016Water resistant,
Are these really 2016 features?Does it really matter? It's the whole package that counts, not just the individual components.
Waterproof and solar powered phones were reality since 2009, so we're not really talking about any groundbreaking innovation in recent years. Retina screens on phones also existed since 2006. Like I mentioned before, the first fingerprint enabled device came out around 2003/4 and optical zoom on mobiles happened around 2004/5.
Anything else you guys think is "recent" that I need to list here? Let's move on from this "my specs are bigger than yours" rubbish.

Zune, 26 Apr 2016But they did kind of made the touch screen phones back in the day "smart", phones before that ... moreYou are kidding, right! Not so smart? Symbian is still the most powerfull system for mobile phones, hands down. It died because of the lack of greater hardware and microsoft. When iflop came out, it didn't even installed apps man! A retard phone they called smartphone. That is why nokia laught at them. What nokia never understood is that the market will never learn symbian, cause well, is not a system for avarage people. And this retarded phone got hyped like something called smartphone. Ios became a smartphone os, just now, with io9. And still has retarded function coming from the era of DOS. I worked with symbian since 2002. I see nothing that can compete with it. But just some way faster phones. But let's not forget, symbian never got 8cores and 3 gb ram;). It worked with 680mhz cpu and 256 mb ram. I would like to see an android , windows or iphone doing that with all the capabilities Symbian has;). Yeah, right. Don't talk if you don't know and don't understand. Ignorance is not bliss in technology market;)
imaniac, 26 Apr 2016I read all of comment here some are on pro other cons but I can bet you if iPhone comes withou... moreI don't remember a conpany, besides samsung copying Apple! Really don't. Please tell me, one? Touchscreen? Was here before apple ever existed in europe. Fingerprint? Was here on pc devices before. Now name me a Manufacturer that copied Apple connection ports and i refute each and every claim of yours. Apple will go for no jack, to make more money, selling their crappy hardware. Some sheeps will follow staying in their cage and slowelly locking the door, some will go out and never come back;). But for sure you won't see ms, the future Nokia , sony, htc, blackberry and all others going the apple route. All i see now on the market is Nokia legacy, so please man: Stop praising something you can't even understand where it comes from;)!
AnonD-114015, 26 Apr 2016Seriously mate, pay attention more to what you read.... i wasn't talking about brand value, bu... moreStop with the semantics. Exploiting is what all brands need to do to maximise their value, it's not a unique tactic used by Apple, but a known and desirable marketing strategy.
But brand value in itself is not something that Apple just created, it is driven solely by the consumers perception of the brand. Exploitation can only be done if consumers respond positively to the brand and its products.
Samsung, Xiaomi, Huawei, HTC, LG, they all do it - some better than others.
Would this certification allow them to achieve their ever soaring launch prices to $1,500-$2,000 range?

Now its time to copy HTC Fingerprint sensor tech. I would love to watch their announcment video to see how they say " innovating the home button". Then it will be samsung and the rest of the world :)
