Re: iPhone 6

That looks suspiciously like a Samsung design to me. Also, it looks like the follow-up to the 5c, not the 5s.

Looks like a fake. I doubt that Verizon would use full hd, and I am assuming that it would be on ios 8

Re: iPhone 6

Could you find a photo that is more obviously fake? Doubt it.

Looks like they took a picture of a Note 3 and added an apple button.

Fake, as proven on macrumors. Wrong fonts, bubbles copied over, etc...

Couldn't believe that Apple would make one of those stupidly large phones.

5" screens are 'stupidly large' now?

Already been debunked.

I'll look at an iPhone 6 when it is in a store

No why would anyone do that. It's a completely ridiculous idea.

Re: iPhone 6

Yes the pics look fake.

4.7" screen == awesome
5.5" screen == too big
Dual core GPU == good
Four core 64bit Cpu == very good
Finger print scanner == waste of silicon
NFC == good
Better battery life == always good
Siri == entertaining, but pretty much useless after the novelty wears off
Health apps == ok
128 gb flash == good
No memory card == bad
Map app == just use Google

The fingerprint scanner is fantastic, IMO.

Just a gimmick like voice assistants, voicemail. Entertaining, but not of much value once the novelty wears off.

Re: iPhone 6

I'll upgrade. But if rumor is true, I'm sure I'll get the small of the two. I only carry my phone in my pocket, so I doubt 5.5" (or whatever) would fit in my back jeans pocket.

I'm very excited about the health book in iOS 8. Especially if it ties into Nike stuff.

Making judgement on features is a little odd. Features like apps are very individual.

Voicemail is a gimmick? What?

I love the fingerprint sensor. I never used a passcode before my 5S. Now my phone is that much more secure.

This new-fangled "voicemail" will never catch on.

Re: iPhone 6

My contract is up, so I can get a new phone for "cheap", or something like that, because I changed my plan.

I will try to wait as long as possible, my iPhone 5 works fine.

Plenty of people make lots of use of voice assistants. By voicemail I assume you mean visual voicemail, which is very useful for organizing and saving voicemails, as opposed to calling a number and listening for prompts.

As for the fingerprint scanner, in iOS 8 it will be used for third party apps, which will greatly increase its usefulness. Logging into the phone securely alone makes it worth it for me, but being able to make secure purchases or make secure logins to sites and apps will be huge, and in time this sort of technology could be used to phase out passwords.

So no, fingerprint scanning isn't a gimmick. As usual, you've confused your opinion on a subject with actual pertinent facts.

i just set up my fingerprint scanner on my new 5S yesterday. It is very cool. I like how I can use it to make purchases as well.
