Sounds good to me and just get rid of that ridiculous 16gb option and make 32gb the base model. I just might own my first iPhone this year if this information turns out to be accurate.

They won't do that coz 16 gb variant provokes a consumer to go fo 64 gb or higher variant and boost the company's profit.

Well I for one will not pay for a version that will cost extra on T-Mobile no matter how good the phone is. That is the one thing that I will not side with Apple on. I rather deal with carrier testing and slow updates on a rivaling platform than to pay extra for something that does not cost nearly as much in terms of SD cards on reality. Or I'll just deal with the 16gb option. This is the same reason I chose the Sony Xperia Z3 over the iPhone 6 and boy did that blow up in my face.

And maybe throw in a 2800mAh battery too.

Rofl. Delusional much? Even if Apple could fit a 2800 mah battery in, you think they will give it to you without overcharging even more? Puleeze! In fact, they might go smaller since its 14nm now just to squeeze some more money out of the isheep. The 32gb suggestion is even more ludicrous. This is the same company that wouldn't sell you a 4s for less than an iPhone 5 without first stripping the 16gb model to an 8gb model. And if they don't have a 16gb option,now do they make it appear like they are giving you a great deal in the 64gb option? Lol They have the most disgusting practices in place and will probably die before they give you 32gb standard, lol

My predictions. 4.7 inch 750p display. A9 processor 1850 mah battery Will look exactly the same as the iPhone 6 Wil cost like $100 more than the iPhone 6 due to the dollar or the new 14nm process. Either way Apple will come up with something to charge more and the itards won't give it a second thought and take it as a reasonable explanation. Yet if an Android device gets a price increase it will be blasphemy. I think I am going to be bang on here with my predictions. Sigh. Lol

It was meant to mock you itards for accepting the same specs and design more than it it was meant to state a prediction. Although I am probably bang on. Of course since you aren't smart enough to pay 2011 prices for 2011 specs I don't blame you for not catching the intent of my post.

as far as i can tell the iphone 6 wipes the floor with 99% of android phones and that last 1% still dont run as smooth. Not to mention the apps and games are much better looking and demanding than anything android offers (apart from the tegra stuff). If the iphone 6 is 2011, what are those android phones? And dont give me that "oh but android is soo much more powerfull" crap. What can it do that the iphone cant?

I think you are a lost cause and I don't see the need to counter but I'll leave you with this because it's fun. Why do other companies charge you much less for better specs and how does that factor in Apple having 194 billion in the bank and being wealthier than most oil companies? The answer is simple. They are raping you hard and you enabling them.

Multitasking, Customization, file share over NFC....

iPhone has multitasking to an extent, customization for what?, file share over nfc is archaic and terribly slow but there cloud file share, email attachments over 1gb and apple to apple file transfer. Try again.

Iphone does not have multitasking. It has the ability to switch between apps, that's what you must mean.

The iphone has started at $649 off contract since what the iphone 4? The prior gen always got a $100 price cut with the introduction of the new model so I am not sure where you would get that they are all of a sudden going to charge you $749 for the base model.

Look at the Canadian prices. And no, the iPhone was $549 before or something like that. I think the iPhone 4s was $549. I will have to research and get back to you. I think the 16gb iphone 6 is like $849 cdn or 949 or something mentally retarded like that.

i can bet on couple beers that this guy is right. apple dont need anything new, just new model name for phone and isheeps will run for it. i am not saying its so bad, but 750p screen now days is joke, if the battery life would be 3 days at least it would be ok, since its almost 1 day than other companies with 1440p screens does same battery life or more. my good old lumia 930 holds for 1 and half day easy, wifi/4g on always, tracking steps always auto screen brightness, and yes 1080p screen.

The only things 2012 about the iPhones are the Ram and Display RESOLUTION. Despite the Lower resolution, iPhone displays are among best in class when it comes to the accuracy of the display sans the Galaxy series (starting with the s5) since they are using AMOLED. Processor is on par with its Snapdragon counterparts and leads in single core scores. GPU is among the best. Design is of course gorgeous although I admit that the iPhone 6 design is a bit flimsy. Let's not forget the r&d cost that comes with the in-house processors, exclusive software and design. Unlike Samsung (especially before s6) and other Android OEM who offloads most of R&D to chipmaker such as qualcomm and Google for Android, Apple do their own stuffs. Android might be the better OS, but iOS got the quality apps.

You forgot software and battery. The core parts of a smartphone(price wise) are display, battery, CPU/GPU, ram, and storage. 5 things. You can't say it's only a 2012 phone in 2/5 areas because that's a lot. That's almost 50% which is still damning since they are charging you 2017 prices for a phibe that is almost 50 percent 2012. That's best case scenario. In reality, the iPhone 6 display is garbage and costs LG nothing and they would never use anything similar in any of their G series. In fact, what they consider their flagship display is so far removed from the iPhone display and a lot more expensive it's hilarious. Truth is colour accuracy is a paper tiger champion that's ifans came up with to justify getting ripped off. As far as software. IOS 1-6 were essentially the same and IOS 7 -8 are the same barring stealing some Android features like notification swipes and calling it their own. And it doesn't have true multitasking while all other Operating systems do. So let's do the real tally here. Out of display,cpu/GPU ram, battery, and storage. Only one is 2014. So if 4/5 key parts to smartphone hardware is 2012, then it's 2012. Software you can argue, but even then that's a stretch with no true multitasking.

Let's not pretend that G3's 2K screen is good. With washed out colors and the SOC struggling to keep up. Many reviewers noted this. Baterry life is very much acceptable. Especially on the 6 plus. Android has lots of feature. But who uses them. Sometimes it's more about the apps which are of course better on ios devices. I mean even android versions of Instagram and Twitter don't know a thing about scaling.
