For those of you deciding to pass on the iPhone 6 at this time, what are your reasons?

For me, my carrier will only have the 16gb base versions and I absolutely will not buy less than 32gb as I'm completely out of memory with my current 16gb iPhone 4. So I'm buying a used 32gb iphone off ebay to hold me over until the 6s.

1. Fugly.
2. Protruding Camera (see #1)
3. No black (NO, gray is NOT black!!!)
4. Not really interested in iOS 8, or iOS 7 for that matter although I'm stuck on it.

P.S. The above is just my opinion and personal preference. If you like the phone, I don't have anything against you.

1 gig of ram after numerous jailbreak tweaks i dont think is enough. we will see, when the jailbreak comes, what users think.

i am waiting on nexus 6 announcement and what phones will be the first to use the snapdragon 810 processor.

the limits of app development, even for ios8, are a bit limiting. i was hoping ios8 would allow for changing the default browser and maps apps. i was also hoping for theme support (besides the keyboard).

if the nexus 6 doesnt have what i want, then i might have to decide between a 6s and a qualcomm 810 android phone in 2015.

until then ill be using my iphone 4 with redsnow 5.1.1

No

Because my bill stays $27 cheaper per month if I keep my 5S. Plus in a few months there will be plenty of used iPhone 6's on Craigslist for great prices.
