Iphone 6 and iphone 6 plus opinion

So, how does TA community think about the new iphones? I personally don't like the still large side bezels, and their prioritizing thinness over battery capacity.. I guess I'm sticking to my mini retina 😉

I'd love any upgrade as I'm still rocking an iPhone 4. But I do have an ipad air. Which is nice.

Quite like the idea of a plus-sized phone. It reflects the fact that the device is 90% games machine and 10% thing for making calls on as far as I'm concerned.

I doubt I'll splash out on one though, I'm more likely to pick up a cut price 2nd hand 5 or 5s from someone who upgraded.

I moved up to an iphone 4s, saw a huge difference, no games crashing, plus it was much cheaper to buy a 64 gig version. The 64 gig iphone 5's are still very expensive.

I know what you mean. The size seems decent but i cant believe i can carry it in my pocket easily and i'm anti man-bags so unsure how i would carry it !

I'm quite happy being behind a generation or so, my iphone 4s was cheap on ebay and it runs everything fine.

How much speed does a person need? The A7 chip is fast enough to handle any game you throw at it, can't imagine why someone would need something much more powerful at this point in time

The back of the iphone looks hideous. Should have kept glass on the top and bottom of it.
