  • $649 full retail price for 16GB model
  • $749 full retail price for 64GB model
  • $849 full retail price for 128GB model

Apple iPhone 6s Plus:


  • $32.45 a month for 16GB model with monthly installments and no annual upgrade option ($37.45 for 64GB, $42.45 for 128GB)
  • $37.45 a month for 16GB model with monthly installments and annual upgrade option ($42.45 for 64GB, $47.45 for 128GB)
  • $749 full retail price for 16GB model
  • $849 full retail price for 64GB model

Or you know - for people who prefer iOS simply because of the ecosystem. Stop fishing for likes like a typical troll.

O really? If he hates and spoke of truth, he's a troll. Lmfao. Wtf. Can't take a jab , knowing Apple users get bashed and insulted. That's like being a rapist or a peadophile. If you are one, and getting called and poked. You can't face the truth. How in denial. Then why the fart use Apple , when you can't accept the truth...? Apple is a status brand. When you see the prices of the unsubsidized phones approaching $1,000 and realize that a lot of folks spend less on their cars then on their iPhones, now you realize that many, if not most, are buying Apple for the brand. And there are far more people who get excited about brands than those that get excited about technology. However one of the things that can damage a brand tied to status over time is the slow bleed of visible, low status buyers using a product.

As a Note 4 user and an iPhone 6 Plus user, I prefer the iPhone for day-to-day use. It has nothing to do with status brand for me. Stop generalizing all users based on what a certain few do. You could say the same thing about Samsung buyers or any phones that people buy even if they financially can't justify the purchase.

Both Samsung and Microsoft aren’t attacking the Apple technology so much as they are attacking the perceptions that surround the brand. Both are pointing out shortcomings to the Apple products and Samsung in particular is portraying Apple buyers are mentally deficient. Now I’m not convinced this kind of campaign alone will do much to increase the sales of their own products directly, but they clearly are having an impact on impressions - which is why the viral numbers are so high. People push things they agree with and far more are pushing the Samsung spots than they are pushing the Apple spots – suggesting they are more likely to poke fun at their Apple buying friends.

So ask yourself, when you look around, do you think the smart people buy Apple products or the not so smart people? If you are like most, you are likely drifting or already in that latter class. Long term, this is a problem for Apple.

People pick an OS because they prefer that OS. It has nothing to do with smartness. In fact, your comment is a sign of a dumb/ignorant fool.

No mr. Z people buy an apple product because it's an apple with the latest tech for its apple product, and wherever you get bored you can sell it and buy flagship android. See you can buy 2 flagship with buy an iPhone

iPhone fanboys are status-seeking, ignorant sheep brainwashed by Apple marketing, according to some.....

And you are brainwashed by Android. See the difference (or the similarity)?

Why can't apple release an ipod 6 with a celular capabilities with the same price

last-gen iPod touch hardware is good actually (similar with iPhone6), and the price is lots more reasonable (compared to i6)

It looks like a really great upgrade. The fastest, moste efficient, 3D touch, hugely improved cameras and iOS 9 with tons of new features, better battery life and basically everything has been revorked on that phone. But I really hope that the next one will be much thinner than this.

Citations for fastest and most efficient? Better battery life? Apple said equal (and like all smartphones, their claims are usually optimistic).

fastest and most efficient apple proccessor, ever.. lol they always compare their new spec with their old spec, and totally ignore smartphone hardware competition

Probably because nobody has really caught up with the a8 as of yet

Lol the A8 was smacked down by the Exynos hands down, mostly demolished by the SD 810 and matched at least by Intel chips. I don't think it won one metric conclusively (this is based on Anandtechs testing, the owner of which now works for Apple).

Apple caters to the mainstream consumer, they can care less how fast the chip set is. The main demographic wants a device that does what they need it to do, not clock speeds and cores. That's why Apple does so good.

That's perfectly cool and all but let's not twist the facts. When he mentions the objective metrics we must be objective and look at the facts. The subjective side of things isn't in contention here.

Only my points were not subjective, they're academic. All the polls, year after year strong customer satisfaction ratings, and market share cement that. We techies are the ones that go nuts, for the tinkering, rooting, and romming. I'm not attacking your post, but it's like you're trying to move Apple into an area where it adamantly refuses to compete....specs.Pprior to ios 8, which was horrible stability wise, Apples user experience was awesome. That's where they compete, and it's why they dominate the mainstream market.

Perhaps people should start looking at actual benchmark tests. Even the iphone6 topped the charts on GPU performance. The really telling statistic is the test on consistent graphic performance. When playing a game you want consistent fast performance not fast for one frame and slow for the next. E.g. the Samsung CPU speed is the peak burst speed and cannot be maintained, so for instance a quoted 2.7GHz peak CPU speed has to be quickly throttled back to ~1.3GHz, whereas Apple quote nominal consistent CPU speed. SO the one REALLY interesting speed test is "GFXBench battery test performance" which as well as battery, also tests FPS (frames per second) stability. It gives the lowest frame rate over 30 test runs. iPhone6 scores 2943, Galaxy S6 scores 848 - a third of the speed!

Thank you people usually focus on number of cores and not overall performance with software optimization, just look at Apple bring a 12mp camera that takes better pics than everything out there.

Once again, please actually go read on what you're talking about. In this case both the GFX battery and performance degradation scores have to be taken into account. The iPhones get demolished on the battery life test but destroys on the performance degradation. This is because the Android OEMs decided to throttle for the sake of battery life and Apple decided to sacrifice battery life for performance and both show that very apparently. Yet, now there are additions to iOS 9 to throttle the CPU and GPU much harder than before. So all iOS devices need to prepare to lose in both metrics now. Apple refuses to increase battery size to save money and they plan on increasing battery life by sacrificing performance when needed. Now they are likely to lose in both metrics since Android OEMs have larger batteries and generally more efficient hardware/software.

Thinner I don't want. I am waiting for the 7, but if you're on one of those yearly plans, I would get this in a heartbeat!!
