Well, just had my first look and feel of the iPhone6 and reckon Apple have another winner, regardless of design, it's the latest Apple and thats all that matters isn't it?

Sadly, we appear to have morphed into Samsung and the Android world and with the shape and feel of the 6, the software first and now hardware transition is complete.

I agree, I had the first iPhone and it's virtually the same, except much slimmer. But reminded me of my first 2g

What goes around comes around.

Given the almost the sole purpose of the iPhone 6 is to win over Android users, it should be unsurprising that a lot of research went into making an iPhone that they would like.

I used to hate the bigger screen but I just bought the iPhone 6 and browsing/texting is much easier. The thinnest of the phone makes up for it's big size.

Although what is Android about it besides the large screen? The user interface still resembles previous IOS....besides the 'predictive text'

Fine, but what about Apple fans that felt the iPhone was superior, and distinctively different from the gazillion other phones.

That is one reason you can still buy the 5c and the 5s.

My guess is over the next couple years they will see how many of the models previously mentioned sell and then decide if they need to keep a smaller version in there product line.

Apple will always have a distinctive design touch that sets them apart, no worries on that front.

No. A company's products should be judged on their merits, not the fact that they come from a particular company.

I agree, though of course all major platforms try to "lock you in" to their platform and eco-system so that it is difficult to switch platforms. I have zero interest in changing to an Android phone for various reasons I've pointed out in other threads, so what Apple gives me when my contract is up is what I'll take (or keep my old phone for a while longer). Luckily, they generally make stuff better with each iteration, teething issues aside. Those who are "locked" into the Android platform (willingly or unwillingly) likely feel the same way.

Depending on the person's needs, budget and other factors, I'm happy to recommend a non-Apple smartphone if that's genuinely what's best for their particular needs. Competition is good, and none of us should want to live in a world where Company X's options are the only options.
