Because Americans will support its own product and company of course....theyl definitely support APPLE...they do have nice things i agree, just hate being a monopolizing company...im using android os but no iphone, and still owns a macbook tho...
so that iphone 6 will be over priced of course... i think it'd be priced at $800 16gb off contract... not to mention the 32gb and 64gb

Apple also relies heavily on product placement (a form of ads) amongst celebrities and TV shows, further enhancing the notion that it belongs to "an elite subculture".
On the bad side, Apple is a monopolizing company that does not play nice with standards and competing products. They push "proprietary everything" to keep full control of their costumers and "milk them" the most they can.
I'm surprise how they have eluded being fined in the EU over their shody practices (that range from not complying with the mandatory 2year warranty to featuring a proprietary charger which goes against anti-waste directives).

I don't like Apple but doesn't mean that I don't respect them.

Which leads me to the next question: why doesn't everybody else use this coating -instead- too?
Recklesslife85, 26 Feb 2014Galaxy S6 - Now with Sapphire Glass.agreed... lol

DerAstar, 26 Feb 2014no ">", "No hate, but you've got your syntax wrong. You have three quotation marks; you need one each to open and close, but you have three.
Lets be honest. iPhone have made a reputation for being premium phones. People are willing to pay premium price to match. The marketing strategy of Apple is to create this elite phone market and have done so successfully. Apple could change an extra 50/75 for the device i am sure they would not struggle to make profit from the device. I am in no way justifying this mentality but its supply and demand. It is true in many different industrys both in and out of tech. The feature is also improving an element of the handset samsung, sony, lg , motorola, blackberry and nokia users critise apple products for so its a nature progression to improve on your weeknesses.
Yeah really excite bcoz every tym APPLE bring out sumthng, its stunning nd new... Nd moreover ny product of APPLE is worth waiting for...
TJ TJ, 26 Feb 2014iPhone 6 > AllIf, and only if it comes with a full hd display at 4.7 inches or greater, a 13MP+ camera, 32gb default storage, and a quad core A8 processor clocked at 1.7ghz or more. It should score over 5,000 via Geekbench. If Apple does this, I just may make the switch from Android.
This will clearly increase costs for us consumers. The iPhone 6 will cost us much more to purchase. To be honest, I'm happy with Gorilla Glass.
