    Hello, I was wondering what the biggest letdown for people is with the iPhone 6/6 Plus, from the seeing it in the Keynote and whatnot.

    No one has an iPhone 6 yet, how can there be a let down (other then pre-ordering woes)?

    The whole pre order process. It was almost a totally fail. Got one I think

    Would have thought battery capacity on iP6 in comparison to iP6+ would have been on the list. That's certainly my biggest problem and what swayed me towards buying the iP6+

    1. Pricing.
    2. Huge top and bottom bezels.
    3. No sapphire display.
    4. If the rumor about lag on i6+ is true then I'm out.

    unfortunately that seems to be the case each year.

    Other

    Inclusion of just 1 GB RAM. Was that done to increase battery life? But since the resolution has increased and new kind of multi-tasking expected in future versions of iOS, I believe we will see more tab and app refreshes.

    Geekbench screenshot of iPhone 6 says 1 GB RAM. But let's see if 6+ has 2 GB or not.

    You can always buy 5S at cheaper price.

    They hit all the points I was expecting, except the Sapphire glass. I'm a little disappointed with the news post today that says the Sapphire glass would have been on the 6 and 6+ except that they were just 2 weeks behind schedule.

    OIS would have been nice on the 6 but it was rumoured long ago that it would would only be on the 5.5 phone so I was expecting that it was only on the Plus.

    Protruding camera and antenna bands.

    In other words I think it's ugly.

    What's this about lag on the 6 Plus?

    Also, I know the bezels are still big but there's less space around the Touch ID button on the new iPhone. The sides aren't too bad.

    That spider web antenna band design on the back looks ugly. Far cry from the clean look of 4/4S and neat tri-color band of 5/5S.

    Good thing I'll be covering it with a case (whenever a well designed case is out)

    The lack of OIS in iPhone 6, and less PPI on its display.
    I wanted both phones to have the same premium specs. Of course the 5.5 has a bigger battery so more battery life, but OIS should have made to the iPhone 6 as well...

    1)No 32 gb option (would probably have gotten a 128 if they would have priced different)

    2) Improvements to screen to allow better outside viewing

    3) no mention of speaker updates.. I really want to see some significant speaker improvements.

    Overall I'm happy since I'm upgrading from the 5

    I was hoping for a 5 inch display and 5.5. I think if we had the same choice as Samsung customers with android had. Not as many ppl would have been on the fence and stressed on which phone to choose. I myself went with the 4.7 display. But up until when preorders, i almost ordered the bigger size.

    After the rumours I was hoping for a sapphire screen which didn't scratch, meaning I no longer needed to worry about keys and phone in the same pocket, but I guess that will wait for iP7

    Dealbreaker = RAM
    Would have been nice:

    Sapphire glass
    Better quality loudspeaker
    Trimmed bezels and a smaller home button
    Thicker casing so that the camera didn't protrude
    Half-priced 32GB storage option

    Keys and coins cannot scratch gorilla glass, they are softer. They might cause those microscopic scratches in oleophobic coating (which are barely visible, even with the right angle).
    Sapphire wouldn't help with those because that screen would also have oleophobic coating.
