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!

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.
