NFC, Sony has been using it for a while now and its applications are quite useful, so apple will allow NFC between the Iphone and the Imac (wait, i have been doing that with my Vaio and Xperia for a while)

That's why Apple will never again have the top mobile OS in the world, nor will iPhone ever be regarded as the #1 smartphone again...regardless of how many parts it has Samsung manufacturer for it. Lol.
Apple will always be behind Samsung in all aspects, including the "highest consumer satisfaction ratings" that you mentioned, which Apple hasn't been #1 at in over three years. Actually, in 2014, Apple is behind Amazon, Sony, Samsung, and Microsoft.
I'm just saying...
big boss, 05 Aug 2014i dnt k now why people cus apple
they are a good brand produce quality products

Never had an issue with the ip4 since I first bought it. The S3 was OK for a couple of months, after that it started smelling like crap & now it has evolved into a pile of crap.. lol. Now my wife complaints about it everyday. Never gonna use a droid ever again.
I'm using an ip 5s 64gb, though at the expense of an arm & a leg.. such an awesome phone. I think I'll donate one of my kidney when the ip6 comes out to replace the S3.. lol lol
What I see in this thread: "Intellectual property anti-evolutionary nonsense, apple fanboys delusions, samsung fanboys delusions, more IP nonsense, rinse repeat."
NFC will finally have an intelligent purpose, now that Apple is ready to implement the technology. Once it introduces it, Android manufacturers will facepalm themselves, at the obviousness of its applications, rush to copy it, and the fanboys will say "We had NFC 2-3 years now!" lol. Typical
FreezeGame, 06 Aug 2014Bad idea to announce after Samsung's UNPACKED event on September 3rd.
Once consumers are le... moreMost Android fans know not to throw a feature list anymore, as they know that Apple operates differently from other manufacturers. iPhones don't boast an exhaustive feature list, rather, they focus on whatever features they have, and try to do it well.
This is the reason for iPhone's continued success, and the highest consumer satisfaction ratings which have placed it as the number 1 smartphone for 7 years back to back.
Bad idea to announce after Samsung's UNPACKED event on September 3rd.
Once consumers are left in awe, astonished by the long list of innovative technology and features that Samsung reveals, it's going to stick in their mind.
In turn, Apple's short, uninspired, copycat list is going to be very embarrassing.
"Look everyone, we incorporated NFC, 802.11AC, and another weird resolution! Enjoy!"
Some things will never change here. People are still comparing specs with Plastic Samsung and ignore software, brand reputation, built-in quality, ecosystem,...
Waiting for this phone and iOS8 with continuity feature.
Anonymous, 06 Aug 2014It has already been released almost 2 and a half years ago, it's called the galaxy s3. lol too... moreThe S3 doesn't have 5.5-inch screen, is not 64-bit, doesn't have TouchID, is not beautiful as an iPhone.
big boss, 05 Aug 2014galaxy alpha is just a poor attempt at apple share
samsung cheap way
comon make a bette... more"Come on make a better device than that"
This will no doubt be the consensus of opinion after the presentation
Whilst I do not pretend to bean Apple expert, this is the first time Apple have bought a presentation FORWARD.
Considering the fact that the 5.5" was to be pre announced for a later launch, that was unaffected if the announcement was held on the original date of 19/09/14.
The hype(hope) that each iPhone will have and the reality must be evident to even iPhone users.
The market us flooded with affordable high spec phones which will eclipse those of rumoured specs of the iPhone6
Bringing the event forward by 10 days is to salvage customers who are buying the many higher specs phones which cost much less than the base price $850 and $1012 which Apple have already leaked as the price of the 4.7" and thee 5.5" iPhones
The price of the metallic Galaxy Alpha will be high but the specs will be better than the rumoured 4.7" and like most phones cist LESS than an iPhone
Apple my bring a large screen becoz its time for a large display and apple must release the phone soon
Sept 9 will be a good day to sleep.
Every iPhone announcement after 4s was a letdown. I doubt this will be any different.
I'll wait for Note 4 instead. or iPhone 6s next year.
ricknos, 05 Aug 2014the spec must be so last year (NFC for example) people will still buy it anywayHow many times did you use NFC on your phone anyway?
Like every iphone since the 3, skip the 6 and wait for the 6s model.
