I haven't seen a thread like this in a while, so I might as well share my thoughts. In terms of lower end phones, there has been a lot of rumours about 4-inch iPhones, whether they are shrunken down versions of the iPhone 6, or plastic phones with the internals of the 5s (for this it will probably still be called the 5c and not the 6c, because it will make people think that it is a plastic 6). I honestly think we will see both. have a very strong lineup at the moment, with modern phones (phablet included) at the high end, small phone, and small plastic phones with lower end internals at its cheapest. could retain this lineup by doing what I said below. Here is a comment that I made a few weeks back on another thread. I must confess that this lineup wouldn't be ideal for me, because I was planning on buying an iPhone 6 plus when it's cheaper. But I'm deciding to be optimistic rather than realistic. What do you think?
