Anybody ordered one yet?

I'm just waiting for Tesco to announce their deals (on their site etc.) before I decide to stay or go to another provider.

My 5 has been f*cked since I dropped a dumbell on it a few weeks ago!

Prices don't seem too bad compared to previous models:-

The thing with the iPhone is that it seems to be behind the times slightly. I saw a graphic somewhere on Facebook comparing the iPhone 6 specs with the Google Nexus 4 - it was pretty much neck and neck. But then you consider that the Nexus 4 is a phone I got for free on a 20 a month contract 2 years ago...

I can remember when my friend on his iPhone 5 got all excited about the update to iOS 7 from 6. He showed me all these functions, and they were basically all things that my phone could do as standard, the year before.

And now they've finally got a sort of market standard sized screen and they're charging 650 or whatever for it... I picked up a new phone over the weekend and went for an LG G3 which was free on a 30 a month contract. It is amazing - quad HD screen, brilliant cmaera, 3gb ram etc and the design is fantastic. Plus you don't have to faff around with iOS. I've got an iPod touch so I'm fairly used to it, and all I can say is that Android is so much easier to use.

To be fair, that was a very selective 6 or so things that rightly Goophone had before iPhones, and then conflates those things to be to only (or most) important specs on the device, which simply isn't true (although it's momentarily funny, at least, which it's true reason for existing, to make you laugh, not to be taken seriously):

http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/iphone-6-vs-ne ... ne-1465284

There are an equal number of things that iPhones have now had for a while that Goophones don't have. It will be interesting to see when the first Goophone with a full 64bit stack inc. h/w and s/w comes out, for example. Stuff is different, and everything cribs from everything else. No-one has ever criticised me for the brand of my microwave (Panasonic), I don't get why people criticise other people choice of phones and computers. Live and let live. As Groove Armada once said; If everybody's phones worked the the same, we'd get tired of bitching at each other.

it looks okay, haven't seen it in person yet, but will most likely have the 6 rather than a 6 plus as i have small hands, although the big one would make a nice satnav!
