    Ill probably be hated for saying this but 2gb ram should have been standard on the 6 plus... I bet apple knew it stutters - but decided to put 2gb ram in ipad Air 2 (which flies in terms of performance) but alas now the iphone 6s plus is out soooooooo more money to them...

    PS - I sold my iphone 6 plus due to this!

    Would be nice to have had it but not a deal breaker to me or a reason alone to upgrade to a 6S plus.

    this is why they didn't

    they make far more money leaving it off last year and adding it this year so people would upgrade

    Agreed. I hate how Apple forced me at gunpoint to buy my 6 Plus. Bastards.

    Happens every year. Personally, I see no excuse for it. Everyone knows how the number/S cycle works at this point. You jump in where you jump in knowing what the deal is. They upgrade. Every year. Your phone will be a generation behind in 12 months no matter what.

    I just love the people who claim their 6+ doesn't stutter or reload safari tabs. Fact is, it does. It's the iPad 3 of iPhones. Extremely underpowered.

    I wouldn't say that. I get some tab reloads from time to time but not to the point of distraction. Considering everything it does the 6 Plus performs amazingly on one gig.

    I haven't had tab reloads at all since installing iOS 9. On iOS 8 it happened a lot.

    I owned an iPad 3 and the 6Plus... They aren't even close as a comparison. I haven't noticed issues on mine unless I have 20+ tabs open.

    Neither Do I. I'm not complaining about getting more RAM in my 6S plus though.

    You can always look at the specs and decide if the phone is right for you. Personally part of the reason I stayed away from the original 6+ was that I thought it was underpowered. I was telling people I expected it to be discontinued after a year. The only other device I really thought they released underpowered was the iPad 3

    I don't think there's a single Apple product that was blatantly missing a feature.

    iPad Mini should have had Retina
    iPad Air should have had Touch ID
    iPhone 5 should have had a bigger screen
    iPhone 5s should have had NFC to allow Payment with TouchID
    iPad Mini 3 should have had iPad Air 2 specs
    iPhone 6 should have had 2GB RAM
    iPad Mini 4 should have had an A8X instead of a plain A8
    iPad Pro should have had Force Touch

    While I don't necessarily disagree with you, if you look back at everything we've gotten over the years then I'd say the iPhone 6 and iPad Air 2 are the most longterm iOS products they've ever made. (That said, I'm still upgrading from 6+ to 6S+)

    YUP pretty much accurate

    A8 CPU struggles with 1920x1080 thats why the regular 6 is faster. Also 1GB of RAM means its an Obsolete device and won't be getting many new features or Split view.

    The Whole 6 Line was a bust the last Gen with Dual Core CPU and Series 6000 PowerVR graphics and 1GB DDR3 RAM

    Sold me 6 for a nice $450 cash, brand new one too Apple had just replaced it due to a bad LCD on previous one.

    In no way can I see that Apple is screwed. My iPad Air 2 does not greatly outperform my iPad Air but if you think so, that's great.

    Yeah because Apple never used or tested the phone before they released it :rolleyes: You won't be hated for saying although it does make you look like you have a low IQ.

    Yes that iPhone 6 line "was a bust" but sold more than any iPhone in history. Get out much?

    The 6+ isn't discontinued as far as I know. If you mean upgraded then I agree but this is the case every year with every company that makes phones.

    Huge bust.
    Nobody really bought any.
    Just 75 million sold in the 1st quarter to shatter all previous sales records set by iphones before.
