    At least they are in luck this year with the note 7 having its issues. I like Apple but man they are slowly taking a back seat to samsung. I hate to admit it but the s7 eats the iPhone 7 for breakfast.. no I'm not trolling either I love apple but it's getting sad to see the decline

    Hawk, do you ever have issues with software updates on Samsung devices? That's why I left Samsung, I didn't like that after refusing the KitKat update several times, Samsung forced it on me anyway and it totally bricked my Note 3.

    No they really cleaned up their software a ton... I used to despise using a Samsung because of the bloat and sketchy operating system but since marshmallow it's a finely tuned beast. As for hardware as much as I tried to be bias and like the iPhone 7 more because I'm an apple guy at heart I just can't deny the s7 is phone of the year hands down. (My opinion only)

    It is absolutely hilarious to me that people still feel like this was some kind of "poor planning" on Apple's part, lol!

    This ain't rocket science.

    I'm torn people picking up a Silver 128GB tomorrow from Apple, then exchanging it for a Jet Black model later this year when they're readily available, or waiting for my ridiculously delayed Jet Black 128GB preorder to finally ship to me. I preordered before the system went live on the east coast (2:49 am EST), but I ended up receiving a shipping estimate of 10/14-10/21. Seeing my wife with her Gold 128GB that I preordered for her after mine was submitted is additional fuel to the fire!

    With the fingerprints and the micro scratches on the Jet Black model, I could never get that one.

    I think Apple is a genius marking company. By having short supply compared to the demand has them all over the news feeds and not in a "phone catching on fire way". Plus they are sending out phones faster than they promised users. I was a late September ship date and I am typing this on my black 7 plus.

    I'll preface this by saying that my tech IQ starts with a decimal point, BUT:
    This phone has the biggest set of balls I've ever seen in a phone. Wow.
    Oh and battery life? Check.

    Just go buy an android. All your ******** isn't going to help. You want to force apple to change? Don't buy an iPhone or iPad or mac. Go with another manufacturer who can give you what you want when you want it!

    Both phones are amazing and I love them both in certain ways, but Apple just works better and cleaner for so many people. Simple, reliable, a physical store to support them if needed. The Iphone is a legend and the spec battle has never been a concern with them. Samsung (and others) will always win the spec battle, but having 3 or 4 GB of RAM means NOTHING to about 95% of the population..

    I could care a less about specs as well you are right. I actually enjoy the eco system better these days myself

    Sounds like youre whining about others whining!
    The point OP is making is a valid point. Apple didn't plan this right. Its not whining, its simply stating the fact that Apple dropped the ball on this release. Its nothing like previous years. They shipped ZERO plus models to thousands of stores.
    And yes this is just about a phone, but so is this section of the forum, about a PHONE!

    If they sent every Best Buy and Apple Store a million phones each there would be no lines at stores, no threads about "how can I get one". They know that a few months from now they will have sold more phones than if they just released them all at launch.

    I had an Apple employee tell me that they had more phones in the back but were only allowed to sell so many per day ( I think it was the launch of the 6).

    I am not saying that I am immune from the hype. I was in the the store and they had "just a couple left" and I scooped them up even though I was not in the store looking for them. I was looking at an ipad and left with two phones.

    It is brilliant and incredibly effective and I applaud Apple for being so smart
    This would explain how stock is added on the in store Apple reservation page. At our local Apple store, stock is added 4-5 times daily it seems. One minute they will have 0 plus models, then they will have a few of various carriers and storage options. Then will show sold out and miraculously have more inventory a few hours later. I know FedEx or UPS isn't delivering multiple times a day.

    And yours is what model?...

    Exactly.. It is brilliant and Apple is so spot-on on every detail, do you really think that they misjudge a major launch event?
