All the summaries that Apple has been a technology leader are erroneous. Before iPod, there were other disk based players, there were PDA's and other devices before iPhone, there were other hardware implementations before just about everything they introduced to the market. The same goes for enhancements, e.g. video on iPod, etc. What Apple did, was to take this stuff out of "propeller head" domain, and brought it to non-technical user until the User Interface and the ecosystem was ready. (For example NFC with the pay application makes lot more sense to me than the silly friend's phone bumping. I had several ways to transfer pictures with other people without physically bumping their phones.)
They continue doing the same thing. As the "telephones" become internet devices and multimedia devices, the "size matters". Younger people do lot more texting than phoning, browsing than watching TV and streaming will soon replace other methods of Audio and Video distribution, so as portability is the norm, the screen size need has changed - so Apple responded. I am an older guy, and I appreciate the larger screen. When I used just the phone, I wanted the whole thing to fit in my ear. Things change. Apple didn't make a mistake, but even if they did, they would be stupid not to change with the market demands, no matter what who said in the past.
Even though I myself don't like all the Apple's heavy handiness, I like the ecosystem better. They always were and continue being solutions oriented, and making sure that whatever feature they offer, it actually works.
I found many items I cannot do (or do well) on my Samsung, so I am switching. I used to have the iPhone couple of years ago, and switching back and forth is a big pain courtesy Apple and Google. I would wish that I were rich enough to have both, but wishes don't pay the bills.
So I had to choose I pick the iPhone....
Those panoramic picture do show a lot of stitching issues on both the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. More so on the iPhone 6 plus. Look at the street at the bottom, the white paint lines on the street. Pretty bad.
AnonD-314503, 07 Oct 2014Youve really got the poorest taste, LOL! How pathetic. Now I can conclude. Thats hell why you ... moreComparing Apple with MB is a mistake. I don't think MB buys engines, chassis and the rest from a different producer, they develop and produce their own, Apple doesn't develop and produce anything aside from the OS.
And a same category MB doesn't offer you less features than a KIA.....
Will take "LENOVO VIBE Z2 PRO" any day over this iCraps.
Apple's engineers should learn from LENOVO, how to make a aesthetically designed phone with an unbeatable camera & battery.
AnonD-314503, 07 Oct 2014Youve really got the poorest taste, LOL! How pathetic. Now I can conclude. Thats hell why you ... moreTroll much? Because MB is 3x expensiver than that and brands like KIA rules price/performance wise, but ofc MB has more quality and prestige so its price is deserved if you can afford it, unlike with the apple example here, for which you pay premium and get lesser specs and features in a shiny shell. Also it screams of deep pockets instead of prestige, do you seriously think any phone is prestigious? What's the world coming to lol.
I've been using iPhone for already since the first iPhone comes out and I had bought lots apps already, around total worth of 400€ but if Apple keeps on using old technology on iPhone, it's a very big disappointment. I might go jump ship to Samsung Android or Microsoft Phone for good.

It does not mean they are more talented singers.
Try making sense for once...
And you obviously have no clue about anything about the cameras in question....or cameras at all.

The iphones white mark is 600 point too cold. So not perfect colors.
The Z3 has near perfect white mark, accurate colors, and better contrast with comparable sunlight visibility.
And that does not change you are trying to make it sound like a bad thing the users can set the screen colors to how they prefer on Sony and not on the iphone....
