iPhone 6 omnibus thread

Recommended Posts

They're back now... not sure if I'm crazy or not. :P

I manage space well on my 16GB, I consistently have 3 or 4 gigs free. I also would rather not spend an extra $100 on storage that costs apple $10 but that's just me.

And man I need to change that avatar, it's getting pretty old. :o

My Missouri license plate is SB 35 47 in a Ravens frame. That was such an awesome Super Bowl run.

I'd seriously go to the store and see if you can preorder. I did that today and will be picking up my iPhone 6 on Friday.

Pre-order in store for a 6+? They have 3-4 weeks availability at this store.

If there isn't walk up inventory, then I'll order it.

Just based off of what I'm getting I doubt you will find one that big. Maybe a lower storage size but I'm not getting any in 128. One of each in 16 and 64. Gold only.

Good plan at this point preordering just means you wont get any of the store stock phones friday and will instead wait for your specific phone to come in.

So I am wondering if the curved glass might be a week point in the phone? One drop on the edge case or not might cause it to crack.

A lof of the reviews I've read said that a case seems like a logical move because the phone could be a little slippery. I'm using kid gloves until I can get it in that Spigen case I ordered -- the last thing I want is a screen blemish/breakage on Day 1.

The 5s is slippery enough. I am not a fan of cases, but this phone case is actually really thin.

 

I just realized its not as thin. Very close though.

I'm using a $6 Ringke SLIM case with my iPhone 5S - it's as thin as a credit card and is durable enough that over the course of the year, I've only had to replace it once.

 

This will be my first Spigen case. I ordered the Slim Armor in Metal Slate...

I am pretty sure my brother has that for his 5s. It's a very nice case. Is it the one with the hole in the back?

So, does anyone with a tracking number actually have tracking info yet??

 

The one I ordered for my wife on the 12th has a tracking number, but on UPS it says they are still waiting for the shipment to be dropped off at their facility. 

 

I am pretty sure her device will come in tomorrow, but I am thinking mine won't show up until Monday since I ordered it yesterday.  Oh well.  I plan on doing a rather intensive RF comparison between my N5 and her iPhone 6 over the weekend.  I'll probably have her phone more than she does.  :lol:

That's the same spot I'm at.  The tracking number showed up yesterday morning so I didn't think it would take this long for the package to be dropped off with UPS.

UPS does "bulk" tracking updates on these suckers...last year I got my 5s before UPS even said they had it. Got it on the release day.

      iPhone XS and XS Max are Apple's newest flagship phones, and the successors to Apple's 2017 iPhone X. They have the new A12 Bionic chip, improved cameras and faster FaceID, and come in a beautiful Gold Stainless Steel finish in addition to the Silver & Space Gray options. They are available in the same 5.8" Super Retina display as with the X, and the bigger 6.5" Super Retina. They are available in 64GB, 256GB, and 512GB configurations.
      Apple added Dual SIM technology to the 2018 iPhone's, with one physical SIM, and one eSIM. (eSIM feature not currently supported by Sprint, but is said to be coming later). These phones also feature IP68 water-resistance (iPhone X was IP67) which gives you protection in water for up to 30 minutes in up to 2m of water.

      Many of us enjoy the freedom that rooting or jailbreaking our phones gives. Adding custom ROMs, removing “bloatware” or Carrier IQ, and adding additional controls are just the start. We knowingly take the risk that that we may turn our phone into a brick, and our warranty will likely not cover repair or replacement. But will we knowingly commit a criminal act to unlock our phones?
      Apple has claimed that jailbreaking the iPhone was in conflict with copyright laws. Given the amount of time they spent locking down iOS, it’s no surprise they oppose it. In July 2010, the U.S. Copyright Office eventually decided that jailbreaking and rooting was not a violation of the Digital Millenium Copyright Act (DMCA), as long as it was not done with the intent of circumventing copyright. However, this decision was not permanent. If it is allowed to expire next month, jailbreaking and rooting could be considered breach of the DMCA.
      Development websites like XDA started out with the public perception that they were underground gatherings of hackers and pirates. Since the U.S. Copyright Office published the finding that jailbreaking and rooting was not illegal, those development websites have become widely popular and have largely changed the public's perception. Even Steve Kondik, aka “Cyanogen”, creator of the widely popular Android ROM CyanogenMod was hired by Samsung.
      Due to the liberties that millions of us enjoy about to be removed due to the sunseting DCMA, the Electronic Frontier Foundation has begun a campaign to keep our phones free. They are undertaking a campaign to convince the U.S. Copyright Office that we should have the right to unlock not only our smartphones, but our tablets and video game consoles. They have a petition that they will send to the U.S. Copyright Office, and they are asking for Concrete examples of legal uses of jailbreaking that “will help show the Copyright Office why they should renew and expand the exemptions for jailbreaking.”

      The iPhone is something many people see as a status symbol. Many who have never owned one, long for their upgrade date so they can go out and buy the "exclusive" iPhone that they have been denied access to for years. Even some who had the iPhone, and then switched carriers, long to repurchase another. Yes, the iPhone is a well made smartphone with access to a loaded app store, and has many desirable features. But is it really better than Windows Phone, Blackberry or Android models?
      When Apple entered into a contract with AT&T, they remanufactured the RAZR craze and how the artificial scarcity of the device created such huge demand. The RAZR was a good device, and you may argue it was well ahead of other phones at the time of its release, but the other manufacturers caught up quickly. Apple used a similar strategy and it has paid off immensely. The iPhone is now available on the top 3 carriers in the U.S., but is still seen as a status symbol in many circles. As if only a few people have access to it. One could make a strong argument that the Samsung Galaxy SII is a superior smartphone, but still many customers line up to get the iPhone instead, because their inner hoarder says they NEED it, and the products perceived coolness and limited availability only add to the whole experience.
      The concept of artificial scarcity is simple. You take a product that is plentifully available to manufacture in mass, but limit distribution to a limited time, limited area, or in the case of the iPhone, limited retail outlets.
      The strategy has worked perfect for Disney. Why let your movies make the gradual descent to the $3.99 Wal-Mart bargain bin? Just keep "taking them out of the vault" and offering them at full price for a few months every couple years and people pull their credit cards out to pay $17.99 for an 85 year old movie and thank Disney for "allowing" them the opportunity to purchase Snow White. Oh, and you get to be a part of a limited privileged club.
      Another notable example is McDonald's McRib. If it was on the menu full time, many people either wouldn't bother going to McDonalds or would order something else, but artificial scarcity commands us to rush in to McDonalds and get several McRibs at a time because we won't have another chance at it for another year. What do we end up with, besides a belly ache and a reason why we don't normally eat at McDonalds?
      We should be immune to this form of advertising by now, as we are constantly inundated with limited time availability and special edition products all around us. However it is still alive and well here on Planet Earth, because it still works. Big time.
      Can Apple keep the air of exclusivity over its iPhone as it continues to broaden its distribution? Or will smartphone buyers move on to other devices? Only time will tell. But many doubt that Apple will play its hand as well in an era post Steve Jobs.
