My name-brand phone that I've had for ages -- and had Apple users asking me what it was, then telling me they were going to switch to Android -- has the exact same resolution as the iPhone 6 Plus.
And it's performance in every way is significantly less. When they had the smaller res, they lacked the CPU/GPU the modern Apple hardware has now. The modern Android hardware has the better GPU/CPU but the screen res is killing performance. Apple let them dance right over the sweet spot.
My phone looks better, it fits a pocket better, it weighs less, it's waterproof,
So it's smaller? Behind them times already I guess. Otherwise the six is pocketable for anyone.
Waterproof is something I use a case for if I need. I use the phone in the rain briefly without issue as I always have.
Your phone basically sounds like a fish-mash of things not important to anyone anymore (FM radio....)
Literally the only feature from the iPhone 6 Plus that I can find which my phone lacks is the fingerprint sensor,
Which actually works and opens a whole world you'll be left behind with as you listen to... FM radio.
no disabled NFC here
Fully operational and utterly useless.
Oh, and my smart watch is here now, not some vague date in the future
I wouldn't want what you have now either, but at least it probably also supports FM radio!
Apple are late to the party once again,
They are never late, they arrive when they feel they have something worth selling. I as a buyer appreciate not having to tolerate half-baked crap any longer, that was fine when I'm young but like Danny Glover I'm too old for that shit. Including FM radio.
