Thread: Apple iphone6 launch on Wed 9 Sept '14

  1. #21
    Can't help agreeing slightly with the person in the report who reckons carrying something that cost that much around in your trouser pocket is perhaps not the most sensible! Having said that, I don't fancy one of these ultra thin phones tbh as they are harder to hold. I tend to drop things a lot and prefer the thicker, chunkier shape of my 4s. I do have a case that protects it if dropped but even so - I like to feel there's something to get hold of and grip properly.

    I couldn't agree more Catlover. I always spoil the look of these phones by buying a leather or matt plastic holder to encase them.

    The first iphone was a slippery character as it was shiney with lovely curved edges. It came quite natural to want to rotate the phone in the palm of your hand because you could. But it was a slippery eel until I attached a Powerpack.

    I've already got an Apple IPhone 6 leather case from Apple coloured black. It's sort of sticky which is good because I have dry hands. I have always slipped my mobile into my back pocket but don't sit on it!

    Or maybe not; its still open to debate with arguments on both sides, usually about what is meant by 'liquid'.
    You get terms like 'amorphous solid' and 'supercooled liquid'.

    You don't notice this in normal use because the type of glass we are used to seeing is for all practical purposes a solid.
    But there are different types of glass, a lot depends on what chemicals are added when making it.

    Anyway enough of the technical stuff, you can buy flexible glass, it even comes on rolls.

    Android's are so much better. Also could get the Galaxy S5 because they are so much better than the Iphone 6.

    Good news. Apple have been in touch and my new iPhone 6 well be delivered on Friday 3 October via UPS - not time specific unfortunately.

    So now I have a date I can start thinking about selling my metal fully working iPhone 5 16mb unlocked phone running OS.7

    This phone can be ungraded to OS.8 but I wouldn't until the bug fix is released shortly.

    Just looked at a website that is happy to buy my present phone off me for £160 - postage extra.

    Now, that would be my hassle free route but I'm just seeing if any Forum users might want to purchase it off me.

    Here's what is on offer

    Unlocked 16mb working iPhone 5 / original box / plug and lightening charger cable / unused ear buds. Running OS.7 but easily ungraded to OS.8 for free over internet

    It's 4G ready. I've been using a nano SIM card from EE. You can choose any network as it's an unlocked phone and you can have your existing mobile number moved to this phone.

    I could post the phone out for extra or it could be collected for cash. Other payment methods are bank transfer or Pay Pal.

    If picked up you can also have protective black plastic protective outer cover, OS7 system software A4 book

    This is just a gesture to anyone just out of a contract. It's on a first come first bought basis. If you are interested and would like to know more just ask.

    Wow that\s interesting!

    I know the IPhone I've got was trading at £235 just before the iphone 6 came out.

    The price I was quoting was what a company would pay me before reselling at a premium.

    I think I'll get the new phone I'll delete icloud before transferring the nano SIM to the new phone before trying Ebay for a sale.

    I really don't think people know how advanced the technology is in these phones otherwise my arm would be ripped off!

    A lot depends on what you want/need from your phone.

    I am curently using a Samusung Soul SGH-8500 that I have had for three years now. It does everything that I want, calls, texts, and internet access, preferably on WiFi.
    It lives in my side pocket and looks like new, I'm not going to sit on it and bend it..
    Last year I got an upgrade (as part of my contract) which is an Galaxy S3 mini.
    Its still in the box, my current phone is still great and is a metal case, the S3 is a plasticly thing.

    I have friends who still have old phones, usually passed down from their kids, that won't do anything but call and text.
    Buts that all they want and so thats good for them.

    One thing I have noticed where I live is that Iphones are usually faster when not on WiFi, but that could be down to which service you are on.
    We dont yet get 4G around here, its about 30 miles off yet..

    TECH BIT.
    My current phone runs on the BADA operating system. Never heard of it? Neither have most spammers/hackers.
    OOps I've just told them, but its not worth their while yet.
