There are no LEDs logo?
As usually, Apple to cut cost and gain more profit...
you should be happy : form now on you`ll be able to take selfies all day , only charge overnight instead twice per day:)) that led was the drain :))
Oh man, that was the only reason I was going to buy the iphone6, no LED on the back - what a sad day.
Anonymous, 12 Aug 2014Most of the people mentioning "innovation" and "Apple" in the same sentenc... more...A strange association that peaked and began to take a nose dive just before Mr Jobs died. Apple seems more content with claiming refining/fine tuning technology as 'innovation'. I'm not so sure about this distinction. Slight advancements maybe.
I'm no apple fan but I think a glowing back logo will be good advertising using the same basic principle as their mac books & desktops.
If it keeps all other OEMs on their toes to develop more REAL innovation to compete, then surely it's good news for everyone :)

Congratulations you just proved yourself wrong in two sentences...

Lupu, 12 Aug 2014I have been trained ? Iphone fans are trained to not think.Meh, suit yourself. Carry on and keep doing what you consider to be thinking. Continue talking about iPhone and innovation. It's the same reason people associate "copycat" and "Samsung" or "lag" and "Android." The ironic and funny part is that you Apple haters don't realize you're the ones perpetuating it.
Anonymous, 12 Aug 2014Your statement does not support the insane benchmark of the A7 chip.
A7 is comparable to th... moreIt's because of the ARMv8 pipeline, not the 64bits per se. If you have doubts benchmark the ARMv8 only in 32bit mode and see the results.
Make no mistake, you were the "64bit advantage" as the lone cause for performance increase... I was the one pointing for the pipeline -- the one you are conceding in your reply to have a part in it.
it will just eat battery for bling purpose. apple wouldn't do such.
Anonymous, 12 Aug 2014You dont know what you are talking about... OPENGL is there to increase performance...... OpenGL sits between your CPU/GPU and your games.. ie. overhead
Metal as its termed, means Games have Direct access to CPU/GPU bypassing opengl layer, thus improving draw speed.
OpenGL is an api... not a improvement. They however do make improvements to the api to improve performance in new versions.
How Metal will improve the existing A7 is yet to be seen. But as it stands now, the GHz / Core count vs other existing SoC in terms of benchmarks does show how armv8 or 64bit does have massive impact on performance.
AnonD-289393, 12 Aug 2014it's good to save battery life, because we don't need to use the logo backlit, it's just a luxur You say that because you spent your money on this junk. The fingerprint sensor was useful, but if they woukd've left it out, you yould've weote the same comment. Pathetic.
Apple is only going downhill. Look at the rumored pics, looks similar to the iphone 5 with those stupid lines on the top and bottom, who the hell ever told apple that its nice. Its sad sad sad.

Such a huge fuss over an outdated overpriced phone with the shitiest specs of the year .(in flagship zone)can't even call it a mid range specs
The battery of the iPhone 6 won't even last for a hour...(no matter what you tell me, talking won't charge it up ;) )
Its not like the device itself will last any longer.
