iPhone 6 omnibus thread

Great pictures, but what what?

 

 

 

It enables images like this in a way no other camera ever could, no matter the cost

 

Sorry that just screams fanboism, there are dozens if not hundreds of other cameras that can be stuck on mounts to capture the same photos in the same manner.

Even though they are shot with an iPhone being a professional photographer makes all the difference.

I wish more people realized this.  It irks me when I get "oh your camera takes really great pictures" when I use my DSLR.  Yes, but you have to know how to use it or it's no better than a cell phone.

I realize that, and I'm sure you know I do. I was more surprised with the fact that photos like that are capable of being taken on a smart phone...some of them with no editing at all.

I'm enjoying living vicariously through you folks that preordered. With all your tracking numbers and stuff. I feel like my invisible

6+ 64gb space gray is being delivered tomorrow. :)

Mine has arrived at the UPS shipping center within walking distance of my house! If only I could pick it up a bit early... ;)

I don't think my pre-order is in at the store. I would probably have it tomorrow if I had just done it online

I couldnt agree more but if you dont have a good camera that doesnt matter either. Apple and HTC have worked on improving the camera sensor and fine tuning things instead of relying on the marketing power of Megapixels. You need those Megapixels if you print alot of big photos otherwise you just dont get the quality. What happens when you take a picture on a 13 Mp camera or even an 8Mp camera and view it on your smartphone..... The best smartphones have a 2Mp display and can't display all those pixels. The latest greatest 4k Super Hd screens only display around 7 Megapixels..

 

If you consider how many people dont consider they are viewing a 8Mp picture picture or larger on a screen that can only display 2Mp and think they are seeing the quality or can really see all those Mp's really havent thought it through. You lose even more quality becsuse when you post pics to facebook the picture quality is degraded more to keep web traffic smoother. You can click on pics to load better quality versions i believe.

While it's tempting to run B41 into the ground with SpeedTests, let's all act like we've been there before. There are many other users on those towers who bravely blazed a trail so that we, the last to the party, have capacity to look at pictures of cats, videos of consenting adults in compromising situations, and of course, this fine web site.  :tu:

Or leave it up while people track their shipments and call it the "Onthebus" thread.

I went to our local Sprint store tonight, in hopes of finding out if they would have any 6 Pluses tomorrow for those who didn't pre-order. The rep said that they had none in the first package, but they would be getting a second shipment tonight. She said my best chance of getting one would be doing an in store pre-order. She said she did a pre-order for two 6 Pluses on Tuesday, and they had already arrived for tomorrow. I ordered a 64 GB Plus in Space Grey, which seems to be pretty popular. She said mine should be 3-5 days, but we will see. Doesn't quite sound right to me!

Nope. I've heard many stores didn't get any at all for non pre-orders.

      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.

      Sprint 4G Rollout Updates
      Thursday, January 26, 2012 - 12:01 AM MST
       
      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.”

      Sprint 4G Rollout Updates

      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.
