    Well having a play on my 6 now and it is a thing of beauty and my first experience of 4g , nearly fell off the sofa when I tested the speed at 50gb/sec and 12 upload !! Why am I paying for fibre optic at 20gbps?

    Love it so far feels a big improvement on the 5 and no way would I want it any bigger. It feels just about right :)

    Yes. Easily. Getting used to the new predictive keyboard.
    When 4g finally gets cheaper surely it will be the end of the phone line.

    The camera is astonishing. Not sure tapatalk can do justice. Just in the garden this morning. So many more adjustments to make. Loving the sweeping up and down to lighten or darken [​IMG]

    Oh wow. Oh wow. Yep. Just decided. Of course, now I want one by the time I leave for Disney on Wednesday, and there won't be a single one to be had...

    Lovely photos. Love the one of Ben with his arms tossed in the air. Can just hear him squealing "scoooooore!".

    Chris did you get the 6 or the 6+?

    My Chris is thinking about the 6+ so I just wondered.

    The photos are gorgeous :hug2:

    Got the 6 wen no need for the larger and it lives in my pocket so need it to be compact. Saying that it feels quite a bit bigger than the 5. Screen feels huge. Very little border around the edge.
    The oleo phobic screen is a bigger upgrade than it sounds. Looks mint and haven't cleaner it once

    over here you can still get the 6. Not every shop has them, but quite a few still do and people who were told apple would be sending their phones mid october have been told to expect them early next week. So it seems like stocks are coming over all the time!

    SO fingers crossed I think you may be lucky

    :lol: well thank you but he shouts 'goal' as any young Englishman would and the only reason I linked to flickr was in the hope that it would upload a higher definition pic of the rose. Will try something better later but was just Playing in the garden with Ben and took a snap :)

    Actually the only truly annoying thing so far is the moved on/off button. I'm forever squeezing the top of the phone and wondering why it isn't turning off. Has meant a couple of times I've stuck an on phone in my pocket

    Welllllllllllll then, I stand ashamed AND corrected :) "goal" it is ;)

    And the camera really does seem a nice bump...

    Andrew said they had 70 phones on hand yesterday when they opened. They were completely tapped out by 3pm. He said he'd do some checking for me today to see if any other stores had them.
