Was going to buy a 5.5 incher

-expected it to be $100 more than the counter part - Check, aint mad cause its better
-Was going to get 32GB for the price of $400 - Im getting an extra 32GB for the price I was gonna pay CHECK
-Has better battery, screen, camera, ipad landscape - Check
-Releases same day as 4.7 - Check

Everything I was worried about was alleviated. Now i just hope its not supply constraint.

I'm quite happy too.

The people that expect Apple to reinvent the iPhone every year aren't happy, and will never be happy.

Agreed. For some people, if they don't get exactly everything they want, this is the worst iPhone ever.
Exactly. "*insert competing phone here* has *insert feature or spec here* and the iPhone doesn't so I'm done with Apple and Apple is doomed!"

It's a tradition that started with the first iPhone and continues to this day.

I'm good, I think, at least in this regard. I like the 4.7 and wasn't expecting more than it has, really. A bigger battery would be swell, but I don't watch video on my phone, so...

6 Plus is better than I expected.

Still likely to be 1gb ram which is a bummer, but I have to say, I've never felt it to be an issue on my 5S, unlike the iPad where it's a pita.

My happiness does not depend on phones. But glad you are happy.
This is a forum about phones. Context much?

Eh, I wasn't blown away. They kept that ugly horizontal framing on the back of the phone. Would have preferred it just be all one solid color. But that's minor I guess. Was expecting more as far as the camera and screen strength go. What happened to the sapphire screen we were supposed to see? I couldn't care less about the landscape feature. NFC is definitely a welcome addition. Sucks you have to get that 5.5" monster to get certain features like the better of the two screen resolutions and whatnot. I don't want a huge phone and planned all along to get the smaller of the two rumored phones.

Interesting.
I think of happiness as coming from various random happenings in everyday life. It could be the wink of a friend to the gentle smile of a co-worker.
Possible too, if one is open to accepting all avenues of joy and happiness, it is located in the announcement of a vibrant and new iDevice that is by its very definition, provided to bring convenience and pleasure to ones life.

I'm generally happy. The 6 seems like it will not get a lot of the new layouts in landscape. The watch not being lefty friendly is a huge disappointment.

I was going to get the 6, but after seeing the improvement of the Plus' battery life over the regular 6, I am very excited to get the Plus.

Totally agree. I am just happy because my fingers are pressing the keys of my keyboard right now. Ahh, happiness!

Unless Apple cracks open the market for mobile payments and takes this NFC thing to soaring heights, this phone is just more of the same. The thin profile is really cool and I love the rounded edges, however.

Ain't that the truth.

Not at all. I was also expecting the 5.5 model to be more expensive, but a 64GB model for $400? That sold me right there. Can't wait for September 19.
