According to a report published on Monday, Apple expects to sell a record number of Apple iPhone 6 units following the launch of the device. The report cites those familiar with Apple's plans as saying that the Cupertino tech titan is asking suppliers to produce 70 million to 80 million units of the iPhone 6. That figure combines the 4.7 inch handset, and the 5.5 inch phablet...

I agree to the first statement.!
I am a die hard android fan but this is the 1st time I am afraid for android or rather samsung. They'll be the biggest fish to feel the hit.

Really hoping note 4 brings something amazing to the table which can withstand the blows of iphone6. But its difficult for note to do so.. since apple has been feeding itself by selling its product to a number of jerks who just need an increase in screen size to flock to apple store and note has been a product for power users and users who could handle power and features.. so yeah adding something so ground breaking as an increase in screen size is one hell of a job.

Wish samsung some luck.!
May the force be with you.

RIP iPhone 6 by the GALAXY NOTE 4 WITH a curved display screen. ioS8 using outdated software with out dated NFC.

IOS 8 still isn't as advanced as Ice Cream Sandwich and its optimization is HORRIBLE.

KitKat runs smoothly on 25% the power of the iphone 5s and it has more features.

ICS? Are you serious? I'm not even going to reply to that... But the problem with KitKat is even after all this time after the release only about 10% of android users got it (and mostly by those who bought the new phone with it installed). It does not address, but rather proves that the biggest problem that Android has is fragmentation.

Now, before you deny that there isn't read the paragraph above. Due to this fragmentation you are therefore denied any creditability that Android as an updated OS is now optimized (or whatever) because in order to make that claim majority have to be able to use it. At apple that majority standard is 85%+ (not 60%, not 51%).

For crying out loud, the next version "L" is coming out soon and KitKat is still waiting to be installed by almost all android users: what is it like half ICS/ half JB - dude, half of android users are stuck in 2010.

Delet that post, and save it - you can claim that when KitKat reaches 5 times the penetration it has today (at least).

It's like telling everyone how cool I am that when i grow up I'll buy a Ferrari, while you still ride your bike to school.

Sammy's next CEO will get buttkicked due to GN4's epic fail, just like the current ond to GS5's.

Apple just has to dominate the high end segment.
Stuck to the low budget market, Android vendors will starve.

No matter how much you are writing about Apple on every article. Your fruit company doesn't even give a damn who the hell you are.

So stop being Apple's bitch and grow up. I laugh when I read your comments mate.

I won't be one of those millions buying the new model. Contract doesn't end till 2015. Perhaps, I'll give iWatch or whatever it's gonna be called a try.

Hopefully, iwatch capability will come to your version of ios 8. Not all versions of ios 8 will be created equally.

It's laden with features (what some would call "bloat"). So yes, the Note 4 is the supreme feature phone. You should be proud. :)

He thought you meant it was one of those crappy feature carrier phones not a feature packed phone.

But it is a crappy feature carrier-branded phone. :D

What this spells for Apple is a 15 billion dollar quarter in profit. The first in mobile industry history. Also roughly 300-400 million iPhones sold by Sept 2015.

I see here big expectations from Apple fans. Be prepared also for dark side of the moon. It can happen like always do.

Lots of hate going on both ways here. I've had Android, WP and iOS and the only OS I have not been tempted to leave is iOS. I can't properly explain why, but it just does everything I want it to do simply and effortlessly. The iPhone 5S is a bit too small for me, but the LG G2 was way too big, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Apple keeps those bezels as small as possible to minimise the increase in device size.
