    Maybe the technology wasn't ready for prime time or, there wasn't enough benefit. Don't know.

    The rumors have been so spotty with the 7 that I don't even know what to expect anymore.

    What I think is that this will either be the most disappointing or the most surprising phone to date. At this point it's going to take something from left field for me to get excited. Seems every rumor is worse the the one before it. Yeah, I realize they're all rumors, but none have excited me.

    It needs to be at least on par with the s7/s7 edge to be worth upgrading for that reason alone.

    I think there is going to be some disappointment for many on the 7. Most rumors I read do not point to the 7 being the big jump. Time will tell.

    I like that the rumors are all over the place. Maybe Tim gave up in doubling down on secrecy and decided to double down on confusion instead. At any rate I look forward to being surprised at the next release. If it sucks as badly as we all rant that it will, I will be surprised. And if it's truly exciting and tempting, I will be surprised. Either way, I've got a surprised face ready: :confused::eek:

    I read a rumor that said Foxconn is hiring employees "months earlier" this year because of the difficulty involved in assembling the iPhone 7 (presumably due to it being water resistant). Wouldn't that suggest that it is already in production? It seems like it would be too late to go back to the drawing board now.

    I'd say it's too late for a rumour like this to be true. The 4.7-inch has already gone into production and the 5.5-inch won't be too far behind.

    If this rumour came out a month or two ago, you could consider if it was true or not.

    I can't see how this is possible this late in the game...

    Unless it was never true to begin with...

    People want (presumably) lesser capabilities because a second lens looks ugly to them? *sigh*

    Would be nice for a larger f/stop. But the quality....depends on your scene what you get.

    Would agree

    It's going into production now so how can they pull it? Would ruin their plans

    This is definitely what I would believe. Seems it would definitely put things behind this late in the game.

    Plus it's one of their main features for the 7 so from a sales point of view it would seem madness

    Hope this isn't true.

    Yes, I know they're all just rumors, but the idea of a dual lens is exciting.

    Regardless. As long as the phone is faster, stronger, better (which it will be), I'll be happy.

    Fast Focus, better lens f1/7 like Samsungs, and I'm fine.

    The optimistic side of me wants to say that Apple's PR is putting out all these crappy rumors to get the public unexcited... and then BAM, announce the next best iPhone since iPhone 4. Although I'm not sure about the likelihood of this happening:rolleyes:
