The issue is with the non plus model which has horrible battery, its the only reason and I mean only reason I sold my iPhone 6(dont like the plus, personally its too big of a phone for 5.5").

100% agreed. I have the Note, so it gets thru the whole work day fine, but my iPhone lasts quite a bit longer.

Wireless charging is you dont need to charge your phone in conventional way. The wire is just for to connect to the power source. And I hope I dont need explaint to you about it. And Samsung have battery case that charge your phone. Do you live under the rock?

Perhaps its a joke to you, for me it's a lot more convenient. I have several pads (including an ikea lamp) at home and at work. And when I'm close to one, my phone is on it (unless already full). So never any problem using it in bed, since it's never (close to) empty anyway. Nor am I even long periods on my phone (I don't game on my phone) and put it on the charger pad on my nightstand in between. And while true wireless charging that tech companies are developing, will be more advanced and convenient, I've more than enjoyed the induction version until now.

Good for you but its still a joke for most ppl. i dont feel like paying for pad to put all over the place when a simple USB cable can plug in any usb port and charge my phone. For me this is more convenient. Beside i have a charging cable thats retract itself and is super small and attached to my key.

The copycats are at it again. First, they copy Samsung's "Plus" moniker. Now they want to borrow Xiaomi's "Pro" designation for the phones. What's next: iFone Galaxy Redmi Pro Plus Note edge?

There is nothing "Pro" about iOS. Let's get Apple to put ISO on both their flagships before they start adding more.

Without RAW, it can never be taken "pro" seriously. And don't give me the "RAW is useless for phones" nonsense. I know better from experience, rather than guessing.

What are you going to do with the RAW files?

Post process

38. AlikMalix unregistered

I know what they're for, I'm just curious what post processing you need to do to a photo captured by a cellphone. And how's all that post processing really different from all the filters and apps like pixelmator or Lightroom? I'm not arguing - I'm really curious.

various post processing just like RAW capture from someone's camera... the answer is limitless.. imagine RAW file as RAW meat.. and Lighroom as microwave.. U can cook various food out of that meat, and if u use stove (other app), u can cook even more various stuff from that meat

So excited for the next big thing of Apple. Even if they have the issue on FBI they still manage to stand up.

The dual camera being game changing is debatable. The only game changing dual camera is the LG G5's camera. The chance of it being game changing is low based upon their other ideas like 3d touch. If the iPhone 7 has wide-angle camera the like the G5, it'll be game changing for LG.

I dont know about this year. Previous dual camera phones are fail

..and how much will this cost? As much as a 13" MacBook Pro Retina?

39. AlikMalix unregistered

You guys keep making these insinuations that iPhones will cost more if they add features, yet year over year it's the same price.

Same price of what? The dual camera is set to appear on a "Pro" model.

51. AlikMalix unregistered

All rumors and speculations. Maybe the next iPhone will transform into a car at s push of a button and it will cost $300. All I'm saying is your post is irrelevant at this point since we're still speculating on features but you're already trolling that it will cost as much as a laptop. iPhones in history always cost the same as the one before that. The only difference is the storage tiers.

"Pro" is such an abused term, what's so Pro about a these phones, not just Apple? It's like "GT" you find on car names, plastered over 4 door sedans or family SUVs. Pure marketing BS right here.

And the price will be pro high! We will see, still they can't beat Nokia/MS Pureview Phones!
