    They might do improvements like a tiny bit clearer or faster shutter.
    But I would go android...
    I mean
    2GB ram and 2.0 GHZ will be good as a update but not enough at all.

    Any improvement would of course be welcome, but I really don't need a better camera.

    The current iPhone takes great pictures and higher megapixels mean almost nothing. Clock speeds aren't really an indicator of performance either.

    I actually am impressed so far with my iPhone 6+ camera, but I rarely take pictures anyway for it to matter much when picking a new phone. So no, I wouldn't leave Apple for it.

    Buying a phone because of it's camera is like buying a sports car because of it's trunk.

    A better camera will never make me upgrade. I am happy with my camera now so it does not matter. If the picture quality is so important I'll bring my dslr or point and shoot.

    Making some sort of "out of principle" decisions about something purely subjective as to what phone one might want or not over some specific function/feature...well...that's simply a personal opinion. If you really only care about that one thing for some particular reason and that's it, then you go for it. Many people take a somewhat more general approach to things of this nature and not stake a principled decision on some specific thing of some type.

    As a person who earns revenue from photography, I'll say that the camera on my 6+ is superb. In fact, some of my clients have even bought my work which were shot on my iPhone.

    Even full length films have been shot with iPhone. Just take a look at the well-received Tangerine film, which was screened during the Sundance film festival.

    If the camera is the same, I would be fine. I would just like some flagship feature that really shakes the boat. 2GB of RAM and a 2.0GHz processor would be nice (especially if it means that Safari tabs don't auto refresh as often and that my phone does not bug out). I will get the 6S no matter what as I always sell the old device and get the new one as it is more cost effective. I'm just excited to see what they bring.

    Same here. Quite happy with the 6+ camera.

    Poorly worded title. You mean if the only upgrade was the camera, as nobody would leave Apple just because the 6 gains OIS featured in the 6+.

    Apple could put out a 9 inch pink iPhone 6S and most of this forum would buy it.

    I skipped the 6/6+ so Ill be getting the new 6+S (if its called this, that would be a shame)

    Why do people think that more megapixels mean better camera? I'd rather have an 8-megapixel camera with a better sensor and software optimization than a bigger megapixel camera. Bigger megapixel also means bigger file size. iPhone 6+'s 8MP camera and Galaxy Note 4's 16MP camera seem the same to me. Plus, my 12MP DSLR beats the hell out of them both. What you need is a bigger/better sensor, not more MP.

    The current camera is just fine. I have a Note 4 and while that camera is good, it does not take significantly better photos than the 6.

    I'm perfectly happy with my 6+ camera, so I wouldn't mind if it didn't change. I'd just like to see an improvement in the smaller version of the 6s, that way I can get the 4.7" with the better image stabilization. I'd actually like it if they didn't give me a reason to upgrade at all. I've been buying every generation iPhone since the 3GS. I'd like to be able to settle with one phone for a longer time.

    Your current phone still working fine and doing all the things you bought it for should be a good reason to not upgrade. You don't have to buy into hype.

    I'd like to. But the truth is that the other two platforms don't work as well for me.

    If I would leave, it would be for a Lumia 1020 (or its successor) or a Samsung Galaxy Zoom.

    As it is, I've been considering a Sony QX camera for my phone.

    Asa far as a better camera goes, i will say this, i have sony xperai z3 with its fancy 20.1 mp sensor and that camera is atrocious compared to my 6plus.

    I know, i know megapixels aren't everything, im very well aware of that so save the comment about that. Sony is a major player in digital cameras in fact i have Nex 5t which is fantastic camera. I cannot fathom how the same company which makes stellar DSLRs and point and shoots cannot make a decent camera for their flagship phone.

    The camera on the 6 and 6+ are great already and have been proven to be one of the better smart phone cameras.

    What kind of improvements does it need to have??

    I really hope that Apple doesn't increase the pixel count of the iPhone photos. For a small sensor like the iPhone's, more pixels would likely means more noise. 8 megapixels are a lot of pixels for what I do which is mostly displaying on my 1920x1200 24" screen or my iPad. Even on a 4K screen, 8 megapixels is more than enough. Depending on the subject, you can print a good 8x10 portrait with a good 3 megapixel file.

    Most people use their iPhone to take picture of their cats. More pixels would mean unnecessarily large files of cat photos and that would crash the internet :eek:

    Apple will continue improvements other than pixels for now.

    I have no issues with my camera. In fact, it's ine aspect of the ohone I have zero issues with. It even takes great low light shots. I really can't complain.

    I would like to sees. Few other improvements though, namely performance. I couldn't care less how that is achieved. If ram helps, great.

    Nowadays I would call that an analogy that simply lacks relevancy. The most popular cameras out there are smartphones and most of them are iPhones. Smartphones have become the number one way for people in general to capture and film their moments.

    To deny the very fact that a camera has become one of the biggest selling points for a smartphone is simply ignorant. One of the many reasons why iPhones sell so well is because of the fact that Apple has always delivered great cameras for their respective time.
