Other phones and notebooks also get thinner. Why do we have this discussion every single year? When the iPhone 5 released people said the same thing. Today, Android phones are thinner than the iPhone 5 and nobody complains. I just don't get it. You can bet your house the next wave of high end Android smartphones will be thinner than the iPhone 6. And if Apple drops the headphone jack they'll bundle the iPhone with bluetooth earbuds. (btw, if they do that it would also help to make the next iPhone waterproof).
The Macbook is definitely overkill but that's just one product. There's still Macbook Air and Macbook Pro. You can't stay still in this day and age. Other manufacturers do the same thing.
I complain. My M4 isn't very confortable to hold, to wide and thin. Preffer thicker with more baterry life and keep more buttons and I/O to have flexibility
Samsung's A8 phone is thinner than the iphone, but is has a 3,480 mAh battery. Its specs may not be as good, but how is that possible?
I don't know. All I know is that my iPhone 6 Plus lasts me 3 days on a single charge, 4 days if I activate battery save mode. That's perfectly fine to me. You can't just look at battery size, designing a smartphone means balancing different features in a way consumers appreciate it. Apparently Apple hits the nail on the head with its products.
You must be a magician, liar or very light user. Because I haven't found a smartphone that survives 12h of very heavy usage.
Do you want me to post a screenshot? I'm a light user, yes. Stop being so defensive.
As for the first part of your post: In that case everything is fine in my eyes! I respect your opinion and I see where you are coming from. What I don't like is when people say *Apple* makes phones that are too thin. Complaining about phones being too thin in general is perfectly fine.
No need for a screenshot (I don't think Iphone have worse battery life than other manufacturers) I just found it strange to have the battery being ok for up to 4 days (I know my phone say standby it can work for almost a month), because the only time my phone get close to this is when I absolutely don't touch it and perhaps even cut wi-fi and data so whatsapp and facebook don't drain it.
I'm not to fond of Apple but just because for me they charge to much for what I need. But I couldn't care less if they made the phone 1mm thin because if their market want it then it's their business. My 5S was just a little too thin (like 2mm more would be very good), but it wasn't too wide so it fitted very well in my hand, but the ArcS from Sony Xperia were perfect and it was almost twice as thick as 5S (but I think battery life was worse).
I would preffer that Apple keep the 3.5mm jack even if they manage to make it thinner. Or perhaps shrink the connector and if people want wire they use adaptors or we will also see smaller jacks from manufacturers, but getting a port out isn't good on my opinion. But I agree that the market that buy iPhone and the others that follow the trend will copy as soon as it's show it sold well and customer didn't bother much.
