Anonymous, 08 Sep 2014No not really. That's because this is the way it should be done. If you compare it with samsu... moreWell, altough you have a good point, I think it is more a point of the market they aim for. They only aim for the high end market, so they need only one successor per year. If they aimed at the lower market they would have had a phone range there.(the 5c is barely cheaper than the 5s)
Reaper8, 08 Sep 2014Cant wait, considering that the iphone 5S is one of the most powerful phones ever made, slaugh... moreIt didn't "slaughter" any android phone running a Snapdragon 800 or better. It lost a few benchmarks to it, but won most marginally, in a smaller than 5% range. Considering that the droids were tested running on Dalvik, and ART is already available since 4.4.2, you can't even say it comes close. The ART runtime boosts the performance of Android by an average of 100%. So, even if Apple makes the A8 twice as powerful as the A7 they would still be behind. ART is the default runtime on Android 5 which is being released this September, bit it had to be manually activated on any version from 4.4.X +
zviki, 08 Sep 2014Hm... I think that logo on the back should be illuminated...That would look awesome but would cause unnecessary battery drain. Therefore, they should have used it for notifications..
Anonymous, 08 Sep 2014You are so right, they didn't invent Operatin System, they didn't invite mices, they didn't in... moreI'm so glad you realise that they didn't invent the computer mouse(Stanford Research Institute did however), the operating system(Unix, developed by AT&T), and seriously, fonts(which was developed by Xeorox Parc.)? In fact they did revolutionize the tablet, phone, and MP3 player (looking at you sarcastically and also knowing you don't bother to state they invented these) which only proves my previous point. They don't invent anything, they refine it and make it desirable and makes boatloads of cash off of it. And I dont't know anything about the evolution of technology? Look at you, you don't even know the basics (including how to use Google's search function apparently)
Anonymous, 09 Sep 2014Iphone have to kill only smartphone for any specs,
1. Iphone 6 have better brightness and sh... moreUhm no. You clearly have gsmarena at your disposal why not use it to compare smartphones instead of making false claims?
1. You don't know, it havent been tested.
2. Looks are subjective and many people hate and love the new design
3. Again. You don't know. There are no benchmarks for the A8.
1.All you are listing is the display size. The rest such as "retina" means nothing. Apple just used the moniker to sell more phones when they crossed the 300ppi mark. Most high end phones are much higher than that even crossing the 530ppi mark.
2. Again most high end phones of 2013 has 2GB RAM. It's the end of 2014 if you chech your calendar.
3. It probably is the A8. No benchmarks, for now it doesn't mean much.
4. It is aluminium. It is a nice touch but doesn't really add anything but a hefty price tag.
Now lets work with stuff we do know, shall we? Lets compare the already tested iPhone 5s to a high end Android of the time (2013), say, the LG G2?
1. The G2 has better contrast, ppi, better footprint-to-screen ratio and brightness
2. Again body design is subjective, but:
-The G2 has a better footprint to screen ratio
-The G2 introduced the controls on the back where your fingers are, no streching to reach the power button or volume keys
-Volume buttons can be used as shutter keys or quick launch toggles
3. When the Sapdragon 800 was benchmarked against the A7 they were extremely similar but the A7 bested the S800 by a very small margin (the s800 did beat the A7 in some tests). However, using the ART runtime gives the s800 (on average) 100% increase in speed, easily demolishing the A7.
1. G2 has 5.2" screen versus 4"
2. G2 has 2GB RAM versus 1GB
3. Snapdragon 800 versus A7
4. Plastic versus aluminium
And as with iPhone 5s before it, iPhone 6, the new generation for the world of yesterday
swipe left swipe rigt and the same 20 rectangles. IOS its so boring ........
Iphone have to kill only smartphone for any specs,
1. Iphone 6 have better brightness and sharpness display screen of Nokia, Samsung, HTC and LG,
2. Iphone 6 have better body desing of Nokia, HTC, LG..
3. Iphone 6 have faster processor of Nokia, Samsung, HTC, LG
That's is 3 specs how liked everyone in world
1.Display.- 4.7" inches HD+ - IGZO + Retina ( water resistant ) tru wooowwwwww
2.Memory.- 2 GB RAM
3.Chipset.- Apple A8
4.Body.- Metal aluminium
That is new generation smartphone in world for now
AdamBoy64, 09 Sep 2014Well, sales = money. And in the corporate world, money is everything.I think Aashhu is going to bore you with his theory of why sales isn't everything now... lol
Loepoes, 08 Sep 2014The phone to beat all phones. And the sales fugures will prove this in the weeks to come. Sales aren't everything. There is a long theory behind it which I'm too lazy n uninterested to explain on keyboard.
The phone to beat all phones. And the sales fugures will prove this in the weeks to come.

If you carry a bag, it is fine.
You are right, 5.5" will be ok.
Boring ui..... Switch things up like a few widgets, clocks, weather.

Anonymous, 07 Sep 2014All these features we have seen before, nothing new to see here. I am curious of the rear lens... moreIt protrudes because they wanted better optics in a thinner phone and that two is in direct conflict with one another. And no, since when was Apple the first to put their toes in untreded waters? Never. Apple hasn't invented anything. They look and current tech, see if it can be bettered and sell a user experience, they don't try to bring something new to the table, they only try to refine it. And charge you heavily for it, of course.
