    Your memory is very short, Lostrune2. Last year, China was among the 8 first countries that received the model on day zero - and there were long lines just like now in USA, China and everywhere else.

    I've several friends that have had some trouble with bending in iPhones 6 that they kept in their front pockets.

    Well, it's clear that based on what you said and what tests reports are saying, that you and your friends are not apt to own a smartphone. Better stick with a dial phone, you know, that black model with a cord? This way you and your friend are not going to have it bent when you sit on it.

    Consumer Reports has just released the results of a test on iPhones 6. Not surprisingly, the results dismiss the bendgate by saying that even under very strong forces, they didn't bend as shown in Youtube videos.. Quite the contrary, the iPhone 6 Plus is more resistant than the iPhone 6. The worst result goes to HTC 8 - which bent at a smaller force, but even so the force applied to make it bent is uttlerly unnatural, as reported by CR. The best result goes to Samsung Note. In other words, it's just a small group of mo**rons trying to find a reason to get some money out of Apple. Case dismissed.

    I would say jealous and angered. Can't see people who buy Apple feeling bothered by other companies at all. On the other hand, take some comments in this very topic: people who say they hate Apple seems to be more aware of what's happening to iPhones than the the very owners of them, LOL. And they're in every article about Apple, but not in the ones about Android. I am a huge fan o Apple and its technology, but never minded to watch the keynote, let alone learning what's going on in another OS. On the other hand, there are guys here who say they hate Apple but are specialists in this field, more than Applemaniacs - all the while holding a Samsing, Windows on their hands. I think they suffer from paranoia. And I don't know if you know guys: paranaia makes you confuse love with, well, jealousy and anger. Go get a treatment, it will be good for you.

    LostinNagoya, his eyes squeezed shut and his fingers in his ears, "Lalalala-Ican'thereyou-lalalala ..."

    What is the point of me retorting to guys like you? You hate Apple and make your statement in every Apple article. I don't care, really. Want call me shepple? Well, I am honored. For I buy every Apple device I can, they work great for me. What I care about is guys like my friend Clayton who opened his small smartphone store after his divorce, totally broke. And now he is doing a decent living out of trading iPhones and iPads, solely. That is what matters to me, and it's one of the reasons I admire Apple. If there's a second-hand iDevices market out there, it's a statement to Apple's quality.

    I just dropped by my friend's smartphone store. He is getting 3 to 5 orders, a day, of iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. Right now his lists of buyers have 60+ names on it, mine included. What's surprising is the number of people buying the 4S, he's selling five devices everyday, mostly to people trying iOS for the first time after experienciing other OS. I asked him if anyone commented on the ¨bending¨ thing, he said yes, his customers have, but they know it's not like it's being reported. It is only a bunch of mo**rons who are pushing it hard to make a case out of it.

    I read in an article that there's a group of paid ¨customers¨ by rival companies to discover ¨weak¨points in iPhones, when they are not weak whatsoever. Of course Apple designed it thin, and of course an intelligent person would never use it in a way that is contrary to common-sense. But you will always find people complaining about the back material, the glass, and so on. There's a CNET article pointing that all big and thin smartphones are prone to bending, if the user forces them in an unnatural way. Smartphones were never meant to be resistant to a 85kg person sitting on it in a tight jeans. What's faulty here? The smartphone or the brainless user?

    Only stupids would buy a $300 dollars phone, only to keep sitting on it. It is made of aluminum, and it bends if the wrong force is applied to it. If a guy wants to buy a phone on the basis that it can be sat upon, then get a cheap thing from Samsung, at least it can be replaced by cheaper models when if finally break. I read a great comment about this: iPhone 6 - this model is not for reta**rds

    @Gaijin Dilemma: I am sure Apple has thought of solutions. But let's be honest: why would a company that reached the status of ¨cult¨ avoid such a free PR? No matter what other envious company fans say, most people in line are true fans of Apple. No matter what logistics Apple could adopt, there would a line anyway. For there would have a day that stores would start selling new iPhone models. So, good manners is up to customers, it would be a joke if it was up to Apple to try to educate them. This imbroglio with the Chinese is China's govt fault. If they had licensed Apple months ago as other countries did, China would be among the first countries to get the new iPhone 6. Hope this is a lesson to them, in time for the release of the iPhone 8 some point in the next couple of years.

    I have had the an iPhone 6 on my hands, it's amazing. If iPhone 5S was like a jewel, the 6 feels like a pure gem. The touch of it is exquisite, and the screen is gorgeous, the iOS 8 is the best version of all them. I strongly recommend an upgrade for those who haven't done it yet. It is worth. I loved the 4S and 5S design, but this one has no comparison. No wonder analysts expect expect 100 million iPhone 6 to be sold in the next months.

    There's a major component in the Apple Pay that will make Japan adopt it fast: the tourists coming to the 2020 Olympics.

    Fandroid guys: go to the article about Samsung launching something I can't remember, that poor thing no one cared about. It received only one comment after two days, while all iPhone articles are the most commented. Let Apple alone, you're looking like more and more envious of us.

    Back to the topic: I have been using a 16G 5S for one year now, never used to the full. I wonder that these guys in need of a 64 of 128G take pictures of everything they see. I am highly dependent on my iPhone, but I can't imagine using 64G and thinking it's not enough. Wow!!

    IPhones are a powerful engine that are moving hundreds of millions of dollar, if not billions, in the secondary market. Take my friend Clayton: he opened a small smartphone accessories store three years ago, in the first three months he saw that the real money is on iPhones, so he got rid of the other brands and is now a dedicated unofficial reseller of iPhones, brand-new and second-hand. Now he flies to Miami every month to bring back at least 15 iPhones 5S, he takes older models as a front pay, all the way to 4S, and resells them too with a large profit margin. Like him, there are at least other 5 other businesses dedicate solely to Apple, not to mention the authorized representative shop in the city of 400 thousand inhabitants where I live now in Brazil. So, no wonder people of every nationality where iPhones are not immediately available travel to other countries to buy and resell them. There's a rich and huge gray market out there.

    Mine is ordered, a 4.7¨one. One of the best things about iPhones, besides being good, is that they retain value. My current 5S, unlocked, cost me U$650 in September last year. One year on, I sold it for U$550. I will just add another hundred dollars and get a brand new one. If only TVs, and other electronic gadgets had a such a good market...

    @cierzo98: you knocked at least 40 guys here with just one punch. Right between the eyes. LOL.

    Back on topic, I think that Apple Watch was not only beautiful (visit Apple official site to see large pictures of the various models, then you can see how gorgeous they are), but also useful, mainly to US users that will be able to use Apple Pay first.

    I am not hypocrit as these stars. I MYSELF share photos of my beautiful naked body to anyone who wants to see it. Well, on the article: I doubt it was from iCloud. Most photos must be fabricated, as stated.

    People are people, but the Jihadists don't belong in that category. And who right now can compare to groups like ISIS, Al Qaeda, Hezbollah, Boko Haram, Hamas seriously, who?

    Answer: the state of Israel, only that it has US support, thus it makes it look legit.

    Let's be honest: kanjis are losers in the language field. Chinese characters are more than 5,000 years old and they haven't become the lingua franca one could expect, given that Chinese culture has been appreciated by almost every other country. Only China, Japan and 3 or 4 can understand these things, that take time to be learnt and are useless outside Northeastern Asia. On the other hand take other languages such as English, Spaniss - no comments necessary to show how they are internationally understood languages, and, thank God, are written in a logical way than billions of people from different countries can relate to, the latin alphabet. As I lived in Japan for a long time I see now that learning kanji was not that smart. Of course, you can use it when searching a job related to these two countries and show off to friends how their kanji tattoo is wrongly written. But if I had used the time to learn, say, advanced math, it would be more useful now. I think Chinese characters should be treated as a form of art, an ancient and dead one. And both coutries should follow Turkey's succesfull example.

    @YuriOtani: It is business. Why would Airbus deliver two aircrafts that have not the prospect of being paid? For friendship, because Japanese can't lose face?? Call it a joke. And your analysis is totally wrong, do some research.
