TechLucia: The iPhone and The Corning Gorilla Glass are going to part ways with the introduction of iPhone 6 and Sapphire Screen, and this may make iPhone 6 costlier.
That is quite possible I guess.
Of course it will be more expensive, but not because of the glass. Because they know the masses will pay for it.
exactly, they target those who like having the newest shit that is on market. hell people pay more even for a exclusive color :)))))
Oh c'mon!. not again, another expensive phone!.. Let's just stick to Android everyone!
I haven't seen anything outside of my sgs3 to upgrade to >.> iphone is kind of lookin tempting at this point
Agreed! I can't stand working on rigid Apple devices. @kevinsheeks - get the SGS4 or wait for the SGS5. The iPhone should never appear tempting to an android user unless you recently experienced a lobotomy. :)
Yes. Device looks great screen.
Even MORE expensive?? Isnt $650 for 16GB, $750 for 32GB and $850 for 64GB enough!? Do people know how much an iphone 5s costs to manufacture? Only $198, $208 and $218 for all three versions! http://www.isuppli.com/Tear... Even after adding marketing and selling expenses it does not justifies those price points. Apple is earning ridiculous profits on each iphone and I dont know why people continue to get ripped off by them. I really like the iphone 5S and want to buy one but the pricing is just crazy! And now they are looking to increase it even more!? I really wish some competitor teaches Apple a lesson and forces them to lower their prices to fairer levels.
Is what made me lol is the fact that my sapphire glass screen protector front and back cost £10-£15, so you can where I'm going with that.
I wonder if this phone will have any resolution approaching 1080p.
'Iphone 6 to be costlier..'' No shit Sherlock
Apple is losing marketshare against Samsung and other Android OEMs. Why would they make more expensive phone?. Makes no sense. I used to think that the reason why they released the iPhone 5c is to cater the low-mid class consumers that can't afford the expensive one.
So essentially no real evidence that it's gonna cost more.
Definitely a possibility.
With Tim Cook as management this trend of releasing flagship then "premium price" mid-range phone will persist for god knows how long.
Coming from a person with an iPhone 5 and how buggy I notice it is most of the time I'm definately looking into Sony xperia z2 a Samsung galaxy s5 specs and I'm seriously thinking of switching to the darkside. Like what's so good about iPhone these days the specs for every flag ship iPhone are under par and can't even compare to android phone specs yet it costs more. The camera is mediocre, amount of ram is medicre, proccesor and speed is mediocre nothing except apples arrogance justifies the premium price tag of iPhones. No waterproof or dust proof is a big deal breaker for me and all those screen glasses scratch when you breath on them no matter how special they advertise it as. Only thing I'll miss is iTunes but I'm hoping android has a similar popular service. I'm leaning towards the xperia z2 but the missing fingerprint scanner has me bringing my attention towards a Samsung s5 ;however I do wish the build quality was better. And the dust water proof was as presitigous as the xperia z2's
i wish that iPhone 6 will have a big screen than the iphone 5S . By the way , please guys take a look at my website, it's talk about heaphones , hope you guys like it : Link : http://www.headphonesworld.... http://www.headphonesworld....
