9 things that could have made the iPhone 6 an even better smartphone
posted by Nick T. / Sep 09, 2014, 4:03 PM
The iPhone 6 is shaping up as an awesome phone and a worthy successor to the iPhone 5s. It is larger, faster, with an improved display, and with an upgraded camera – we couldn't possibly ask for anything more. Okay, we lied. There's a ton of things that could have made the iPhone 6 a much better smartphone than it already is – things like design improvements and extra features that could have been added. Check them out below!
A lot of those are ridiculous subjective to major nitpicking.

The points missing on this list are change the damn 7 year old design 1gb of ram, seriously? Dual core! Lower the damn price, it is a phone not a Bentley Continental. Let the customers customize the home screen of their $900+ property the way they want, even WP's home screen is better than this.

The design has changed quite a bit. 1 GB of RAM was pretty disappointing. High performance dual core that beats most, if not all, quad/octa cores out there. Same price as Android flagships I agree, iOS should have their own version of widgets.

Wow, two examples out of the dozens of Android flagships over the years, and one of them isn't even available to 99% of consumers. You sure showed me! HTC, Samsung, Sony, LG, etc. all have similar prices for their flagships. The only exception would be Motorola, and even they're not too far off.

That's a big one for me, Apple is clearly out of their element with larger screen sizes. iOS needs to change a bit more to adapt, as well... Their one handed use option is a bit embarrassing considering this is Apple we're talking about.

"As usual, the price difference between a 16GB and a 32GB iPhone is a whopping $100 even though it costs Apple about $10 extra to produce the latter model." There is no 32GB model or am I mistaken. It's 16, 64, 128.

Couple things wrong with your list, PhoneArena. First is that the iPhone 6 Plus will come with OIS; and second, as NoFanboy above stated, there is no 32Gb iPhone 6 or 6 Plus. The capacities go from 16 to 64 then to 128. The 64Gb is the price the 32Gb used to be, and the 128GB is the price that the 64Gb used to be. Third, as many people before have said in the past, it doesn't really matter how many megapixles the camera is, it's more about the quality of the sensor and the software. I used to have a phone that only had a 3.2MP camera and it took just as good if not better quality as a phone that I had later that had an 8MP camera.
