    Iphone 6 coming out end of year.

    Apple Inc.’s rumored iPhone 6 is now expected to carry an even smaller frame as the company focuses more on slim contours, a move that raises the difficulty level for component makers as they reduce the thickness of battery pack, CNET reported.


    I'm hearing more power, slimmer design, and a few surprises. Can't wait

    iPhones are already too small for me to consider getting one.

    They'll just be thinner; your sausage fingers will appreciate the larger screen size(s).

    Keys, phone and change . . . hate them in my pockets. Less keys, small phone and give away change is how I compensate.

    I do enjoy a bigger screen so it is a balance of small phone with big screen, but the iPhone works well for what I want. My little gift to my self is when a new version of the iPhone comes out.

    Media consumption differs according to platform, a study by the Reynolds Journalism Institute has found. This is also influenced by demographics, including age, education and earning capacity. In the recently-released 2012 RJI Mobile Media News Consumption Survey, researchers have determined that Apple iPhone users are generally older, better-educated and earn higher than those using Android. This may account for Apple’s market dominance over Android since the beginning.



    Also while android is catching up in sales, profit per unit is dominated by apple . . . I think it's apple who is laughing.

    I'd laugh my ass off too if I could sucker millions of people into buying an inferior phone because of the name.

    In Vegas my girlfriend's Iphone shuts itself down due to the heat. My Note 3 sits in a bodyshop that is usually over 100 in the summer wrapped in a stocking cap to protect it from dust and never gets hot.

    Well that's one reason to buy a android over an iPhone

    Just a matter of preference, but I don't think either company is fooling anyone. Apple is a much better run company, but the phones are just a matter of what you want. Heat tolerance seems to be your criteria :)

    Yep. I know a lot of people that love their galaxy and others that love their iPhone. Which one is a better phone depends on what each person wants.

    I want something something small sturdy (don't like plastic phones) that is simple and intuitive. The iPhone fits what I'm looking for. Can't wait for the iPhone 6.
