[deleted post]Are you certain that iphone 6 plus is that expensive?! Are you even believing those shops who sell iphone 6 plus at a very high price?! Please Re-evaluate on how you post.
here is the real big picture that a lot of you people are not paying attention to. If the Chinese are buying 20 million of the 6+ iPhones then that means their economy is skyrocketing. In America it was less than 10 million total for iPhone 6 and 6+ but 6 being the greater purchases of both phones. Now America is the third world country. Thank You Apple for securing China's market. And they are the same butt-holes who keep hacking your systems.
Fake news, its not true, everyone knows now how apple makes marketing
mcool93, 14 Oct 201420 millions?? must be a mistake in translation! That's crazy if it's true. GSM arena would not post it here if it wasn't true...

The big loser is Samsung. The Chinese will either buy cool looking branded IPhone or budget yet good looking Xiaomi.
Mattt, 14 Oct 2014I'd rather pay full price for Apple than waste money on Xiomi, Huawei or those other rubbish b... moreso, people have to buy their phone every time they release new one... thats why they create rubbish one with cheap price ~
nikky1999, 14 Oct 2014sammy fanboys are stunted , after all the fuss and bending issues this phone prove to be a killer.If you believe everything you read from the internet, then believe, this is Will Smith talking to you .
Seems like we have a lot of people here who know nothing about China.
1) Xiaomi, Meizu, Lenovo etc.. are far from rubbish. Xiaomis are particularly well built and excellent.
2) The Chinese certainly do like Apple, but they are MASSIVELY far behind pretty much all other brands.
3) 20 million sounds like a high number until you realise that probably 50-75% of those are from carriers and Taobao (ebay) sellers. Leaving only about 6 million pre-orders from actual people.... in a country of 1 billion.
And yes, I live in Shanghai so I know what I'm talking about.
There's no doubt that the iPhone6 does seem to be the most popular one for a while, but you can all stop thinking it's the 2nd coming of Christ just because you saw a 20 mill figure. ;)

Nothing unusual about it. Even the 4S was selling like hot cakes there.
Those bending issues are just for the haters, that got nothing else to say.Seems the 6+ does it's magic to plunder the sales if the already sad N4.
XXX13, 14 Oct 2014Then get a Blackberry Passport. yea those sucks too.

When it reached 2 million an announcement of record breaking sales, now a commentator has wildly extrapolated figures nothing http://www.gsmarena.com/two_million_iphone_6_reservations_placed_in_the_first_6_hours_in_china-news-9820.php
Apple must hope all this hype generates more interest.
The sheen will come off after ownership http://www.gsmarena.com/compare.php3?idPhone1=4910&idPhone2=6378
IPHONES were leaders until 2011 -when samsung galaxy s2 changed the world- hence apple patents lawsuits never ending against samsung s2 -then s4 - world leaders .. IPHONES are benchmarkers.. but iphone 6 has inferior specs than samsung galaxy s3 of 2012 .. in each section ! iphones are elites -for elites .. APPLE must compete fairly in market place - for customers choices and sakes ..BATTERY life is a sore issue for all smartphones ..
