One has to respect Apple for having their own way.
Everbody else use Android, which Google makes, only Apple has unique OS.
Everbody else use quad or octa cores and 2 or 3 GB RAM, only Apple uses dual core and 1 GB RAM
Everbody else are in megapixel,race, but not Apple. 8 mpx is enough, and camera is superb, better that 20 mpx units
Most of commpetition offer sd cards, removable back, battery etc, but not Apple. They say "use iTunes and leave picking on hardware to us"
One has to respect uniqe way Apple has gone
As I see it:
Great design and premium materials
Excellent camera, maybe the best
Great battery life
No1 in performance tests overall
Bezels could be smaller
Front camera could get a bit more mpx
Stereo speakers would be nice touch
Exposed camera lenses don' look good
Anonymous, 02 Oct 2014The specs are just as important as the the software driving it. The software is good, but the ... moreYes, specs may just seemed decent like mere dual core 1.4GHz (but why it outperformed other 2.5GHz quadcore? You can see it in the benchmark), just 1GB or RAM (but why it handled multitasking as 3GB RAM), just 8MP (but why it performs quality wise as other 20MP fones?) and despite all the issues ang mockery, why it still flooded with record breaking number of buyers? My friend, no matter what you say, its is still Apple, its has the badge that nobody has. Yes, specs looks underwhelming but apple made the best out of it to match specs-flowering competitors.. Its like comparing ferrari with Aston, yes, Aston has cars that outperforms ferrari but Aston dosnt have the badge and prestige of ferrari..

lets go, 02 Oct 2014Clearly you did NOT understand that this was a negative review
The iphone6+ is gInormous
... more4years same nonsense. Ifans don't like to compare specs. It hurts their inner feelings. White paper will still be white paper no matter how you look at it. Until you draw something on it then it becomes art
An iPhone really is just another iPhone. The irony in all this is that iPhones are in 1 infinity loop.
Don't make Ifans sad...Cheers.

The only thing that gave them a bit of lead is that it comes out later than those devices and uses a newer graphics chip.

The iphone6+ is gInormous
iPhone6+ 158.1 x 77.8 x 7.1 mm & weight 172g. Screen display 5.5”
LG G3 146.3 x 74.6 x 8.9 mm & weight 149g. Screen display 5.5
Note 4 153.5 x 78.6 x 8.5 mm & weight 176g. Screen display 5.7
No microSD slot phones have for a long time had microSD slot so plus 32Gb multiple times
32 GB should have been the minimum memory all that APple have done is added a 128GB version (e.g. Galaxy Alpha 16gb is too low)
If this was CNN do you think they have rechargeable video cameras or battery packs?
2 hours plus to recharge a battery from flat, a removable battery or spare, NO official repair for battery replacement required.
8Mp camera since 2011 iPhone4S, even Nokia have upgraded the MID-RANGE 8Mp Lumia 820 to 10MP Lumia 830
No 4K video and video sound is still mono?
No enhanced resistance to liquids or dust, no Sapphire Glass and the Gorilla GONE.
Apple Pay the biggest NON PHONE GIMMICK of this decade, if you do NOT have a credit / debit card then you may be able to recreate Apple Pay by using CASH / Cheque/ Money Transfer or magic beans.
Apple pay is a money stream. Apple receives 15c per transaction, NFC (Not for Charity)
It has already been stated the iPhone6 or 6+ is the phone you upgrade to after 2 years on contract on the Iphone 5 (Take away Apple pay and all you have is a larger display iPhone5.
So again 4 years same specs you have bought EXACTLY the same phone http://www.gsmarena.com/compare.php3?idPhone1=4910&idPhone2=6378
Not so much Futurama but Pasterama, the clue was Bender of course
Great performance,great camera,great display especially under the sunlight and Great battery.The only problem is the bending issue.
Anonymous, 01 Oct 2014Hahahaha..you're funny. Ok, let me clear things up for you. This is 2014, not 2012.Instead of laughing go and see the test.
Where are htc m8 and samsung s5... In preformance test... ?!?!?!!? That is real comparison. Android vs. iOS
Meanwhile, Apple’s brand new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus features a “disappointing” dual-core Apple A8 processor and “just” 1GB of RAM. But guess what… it turns out that those seemingly puny specs just crushed quad-core and octa-core rival smartphones in a number of key performance tests carried out by the world’s leading blog when it comes to technical gadget analyses.
Larger iPhone not the phone Apple wanted to make.
Overall the Note 4 and G3 still has the edge with the quad hd screen screen.
Sony Z3 credible alternative to the IPhone plus on 1080p.
Apply's Retinal display concept totally shot to pieces.
Artem V., 01 Oct 2014Apple is also offering a new feature called Wi-Fi calling. If both parties support this servic... morePreviously Facetime was Apple to Apple only
FaceTime over Wi-Fi: this means FaceTime has been extended to include NON Apple phones via wifi
FaceTime over Cellular: An entirely different thing
This is VIDEO Calling and you will be charged at the rate for making these Video calls
I have not heard myself of any network offering a video calling allowance
ANY WIFI is "FREE"
CELLULAR is NOT FREE
On NON Apple handsets Cellular (video calls) have been available for years, but you paid. Apple have joined the club, wifi calling will see the major uptake

Dudz628, 01 Oct 2014Whats funny? Just because apple doesnt go with pixel race? Its not about the no of pixel, its ... moreThe specs are just as important as the the software driving it. The software is good, but the spec is only decent.
If they used the same tuning on a larger sensor the results would be much better.
Don't be a blind fool. It's not the best. It's outperformed or overall outperformed by a few other phones....
And this is just us talking about the camera. Basically the same thing works for the entire device.
