Do you also think the price you pay for hand-lotion, deodorant and other cosmetics has got something to do with production costs?

Do you also believe in the tooth-fairy?

I've had my 6 for a couple of weeks now and I love it!! Hubby still waiting patiently for his 6+ though!
6+ came today. 4 weeks after release date… not bad! Makes my 6 look small … it's great though!

My wife has my former 6 now and I have a Plus - ordered it from Mobilezone and had it a day later. I freaking love that thing. I've had many, many phones in the past, as most of you know, but the Plus is definitely one of my all-time favorites. Now I'm just waiting for that N6 to come out so I can replace my work phone with a stock Android + Android Wear package.

Re: iPhone 6

I upgraded to the 6 plus.

To be honest, I did not expect myself to do that, and had not wanted a large screen beforehand... i would have considered myself against such a concept!

but playing with the 6 plus in the store convinced me very quickly that it would be be leaps and bounds ahead of my 5. In terms of what you can see on the screen, its great, and finally having 128gb to play with meant that i didn't have to compromise so much on what i put on the phone.

It does take some getting used to in terms of portability but I'm overall very pleased so far.

Re: iPhone 6

I've noticed something strange. When ios 8.1 was released, I signed up for Apple pay with my US credit card.I had previously placed my work badge in one of the slots of my "wallet case" that holds my iphone. Now whenever I place my case with the card on the terminal to enter my building my apple pay comes up! It makes me wonder if in a few years we can use our smartphones as our work badges to enter buildings, clock in/out...etc. It would be more convenient because I always forget my badge, but never my phone. They could also be linked to your fingerprint, thus making the whole process more secure (for the employer) than it currently is.

This is very easy to implement with any smartphone that has NFC and it is not locked.
But Apple has locked NFC in its devices and it is not available to app devs to take advantage of.
At the same time, your employer can easily install an NFC reader at the building entrance and upload an app on the Google Play Store in which you login and which "talks" to said NFC reader and says that this is you. You are not proposing anything revolutionary. E.g. in Germany there are NFC readers at many train station and you only have to touch them with your smartphone to get schedules at this station and (I think) buy tickets. But not with your iPhone because NFC is locked by Apple.

How do you actually do this? Not that I have a US credit card, but I don't see any option in passbook to add credit cards.

Re: iPhone 6

well i was just comparing the iphone 6 with the iphone 5 today. It was the black and grey iphone 6 against the white iphone 5. The I phone 6 simply looks cheap and nothing that one would want to throw 900 franks out for.

Re: iPhone 6

I don't want to interrupt your eloquent monologue here, but I have to ask why you are so interested in the iPhone even though you have no interest in buying one?
As an iPhone user myself, I couldn't care less what somebody who will never buy one thinks about a certain model.
I certainly don't troll Android forums to try to convert people over to the Apple side.
