No Matter, 11 Feb 2017A glass back... what is the matter with all manufacturers? Glass back is necessary for wireless charging. Plastic can also be used but people tend to think it looks cheap.

And when Apple does it, boom, it's the best thing ever. Then OLED displays. This displays already mature in 2015. But people say that OLED STILL sufer burn in and dead pixel. And by the time Apple have it, boom, all those burn in and dead pixel will be gone. Lol
Wireless charging. Who says it's slow? Samsung have something call Fast Wireless charging. It will charge your phone about the same time with a cable.
Edge screens a gimmick? Sure, then when Apple does it, boom, it's not a gimmick anymore. Lol.
Apple is now playing cathing up.

No Matter, 11 Feb 2017A glass back... what is the matter with all manufacturers? To support wireless charging, metals do not allow this feature

Here I have a IKEA wireless charging table and it works pretty flawlessly. It has been working since long. Only that company is taking time to implement it to rip their customers. And gullible people buy into that jargon
AnonD-82281, 11 Feb 2017What are the chances of Apple using Qi standard or creating a proprietary wireless charge? Dear Apple fanboys,
Dont be too amazed. It is the same wireless charging technology in Apple Watch. Quit being a monkey. All that banana Apple is offering you is the same old thing from the past.
Likely to be proprietery cause they can charge loyalty to accesory maker like they did with lightning

It acts as a night clock/alarm clock. I can use it on the wireless stand if I desire, easier to take it off then place it back when done. It doesn't matter if it's not dead center, although I usually try to square it up. I have both Samsung fast charger and Verizon QI nightstand models and both work well.
Some of these comments! I currently have a s7, wireless charger, but want a phone that has decent internal storage, and similar features to what I have(water resistance, wireless charging, etc) but tired of Android OS fragmentation as well as the carriers jacking up the updates and making it take forever. By the time I get Android N it will be old news. I want the latest OS that works. That limits me to Pixel 2 or this whiz bang iPhone coming up.
AnonD-523334, 11 Feb 2017Congratulations. Apple caught up with Sammy . but there is a catch. Only 5" version. to catch ... moreit wont be a gimmick when apple does it.
its pretty simple, when apple does their implementation, they make it work.
ive tried samsungs earlier versions of wireless charge and its nothing but a gimmick period.
phone is unusable while on wireless charging.
if you move the phone 1 millimeter the charging is interrupted.
and the charging is slow.
Apple will make wireless charging work, that why their slow compared to samsung.
And samsung will copy apples version of wireless charging, as it will be a game changer.
why do you think apple has not copied samsung edge screen?
one answer, its a gimmick.

So this anniversay model will just be there to test it out. And only 5 inches? That's not much bigger than the 4.7 one. They better make the bezels much smaller or they will look so out of place this year.
The main reason I hate Apple is because they always offer kinda-good products this year so that they can release a little-better product the next year. Apple can easily make all the iPhone support wireless charging, but no, it's an exclusive feature. Fooling customers at its best
Unlike some companies, like Samsung, they always offer the best tech around. So when they released an awesome-product this year, their products will be seen an a minor upgrade in the next year. meh.
With other phone companies already offering what Apple keeps promising and the fact that the new model is projected to start at $1000,I think I'm going back to android. Also,their tablet prices are ridiculous. I bought the iPad Pro and I use my Samsung tablet more than the iPad. Apple has an overinflated ego. I'm not willing to pay these prices just to have a status symbol.
