    Hi folks,

    I have a HTC One M7 right now and I would love a new phone as I've had this for 2 1/2 years now.

    I'm considering the iPhone 6 but can't decided if I should get it or wait for the 6C...

    The main questions I have is, on average, how does the battery life on the iPhone 6 compare with the HTC One M7?

    Also, my other concern about the iPhone 6 is the bending issue. If I had a good case for the iPhone 6 would it reduce the bending risk?

    There's not really a bending issue, and yes you should wait. It's been 2 1/2 years, what's another 2 months.

    Why wait though? What advantages will the 6C have over the 6?

    The 6C? The last I've understood there's no 6C this year. Or are we talking the 6S?

    Perhaps the op has supply chain sources?

    Unless your M7 is dying, I'd wait. Also, there is no concrete evidence that Apple will be releasing a 6c.

    Exactly: wait. If the "6C" has no benefit for you, just buy a 6. After the new iPhones are announced the price for the previous generation drops.

    Even if there is no 6C this year, which is very likely, the 6 will have a good price tag. The 6S will have Force Touch, much better internals (if history repeats itself), better cameras (not sure how much), and possibly tweaked design.

    Just wait... less than 2 months of wait time.

    There have been a few rumors that it might come around with the same body as the 5C and presumably similar specs to the new iPod touch.

    As for the OP I'd say wait regardless of if you are interested in a possible 6C or the 6S. It might have something you want, and if not then the current 6 will be cheaper after the 6S comes out.

    Yes I definitely agree with this post. In 2 months the 6 will Still be a good phone, but it's gonna be $99 cheaper.

    I would also advise you to wait, we are very close to launch and then you will be able to make a more informed decision having more devices to choose from. You will be able to buy a 6S, 6 and possibly even a 6C. If you decide to go for the 6 then you'll also earn yourself a nice discount, so waiting will save you money.
