    Sarcasm is boring. They can't be folded yet in real world mass market products. When it happens that'd be another story.
    Thinner and lighter: iPhone is thin and light enough, a 10 gr reduction in weight won't change anything.
    Greater saturation and contrast is not so great in comparison with the last iPhone and small improvements OLED will give in that area are outweighted by its burn in issue.

    Which is why I hardly ever use it, except when someone writes something that makes no sense whatsoever.

    If you actually believe what you wrote ("OLED issues outweight its small benefits"), then how do you explain manufacturers moving to OLED?

    It's not black paint. The mirror finish and water proofing lowered yields. The hurdles are different every year, if they were the same, it would be the same phone.

    iPhone sales have leveled off because sales are higher than the 5S. You not replacing your 6 is not proof of Apple failing, more like you being bitter for no reason.
