    I'll take a point from the OP's first post in this thread.
    " The 5S only added Touch ID" as if it was a incremental addition.
    Apple has built a book of business around Touch ID with Apple Pay which seems to be very lucrative for them. So Touch ID is not such a incremental addition. Not my opinion but fact based all of the financial institutions that are on board.
    So did the OP think out what he posted?
    Don't blame the folks that responded with well thought out opinions based on fact and Apple's successful business model.
    If the OP thinks a certain direction is better than what Apple does explain it champion your point as to why it's better.
    If he felt like a "*****" (His words not mine) maybe it's because he realized he didn't think out what he posted.

    My point is we are WAY WAY blowing this out of proportion! Lets all put on a big boy and big girl pants and agree to disagree and walk away as friends!

    I think over all we get along pretty good! You guys were even able to accept a BB guy like me in to the fold and THAT is saying something! (Of course I DO own a iPhone, several iPads, and a Mac Book Pro, but who's counting )

    And you decided that you are the decider of what is bile and what is not. That's the issue. You are The Decider in Chief.
    I just call it how I see it...I don't DECIDE anything...proven by the fact that you disagree with me, therefore formulating your own opinion on it.

    This lack of empathy is the heart of the problem. It is obvious to you that it must be that the OPs like this must certainly have 'deep-rooted personal issues'. It can't possibly be true that maybe you were just a tad unfriendly.

    I know it's hard to recognize when our own behavior could use a tweak or two but give it a try.

    My flaw? Same as Sean's I presume: I like to argue. And I have a hard time keeping quiet about an issue.
    Empathy? Why would I support/share an opinion that is blatantly wrong? There's no lack of empathy here, there are just people who have very thin skin but want to participate with those who don't accommodate such. Then there's the backlash of the OP when he himself was not treated unfriendly or brash really, people just disagreed with him on different levels and spoke their opinion of the subject. Not one person attacked the OP himself personally or otherwise when he shot back with his tantrum.

    I don't see my enjoyment of a good argument as a flaw...if you see yours as one, that's on you. I won't be tweaking anything because I enjoy real world discussions vs. get along gang circle jerks.

    Maybe somebody needs to put on a striped shirt, blow a whistle and call a big "time out" ... then we can all sing a rousing round of kumbaya and get busy making everyone feel special. Sean, do you still have that closet full of "participation" trophies? We could give one to each of the new kids so we can get back to discussing all things Apple.

    Wow.

    Sure as soon as everyone stops labeling threads as trolling, calling it 'horse-$:$&(' and saying posters have 'deep personal issues'.

    Nah, never got any...I got trophies for being good at something, and moved on when I wasn't...taught me where my talents should be focused, instead of building me up to think I was good at everything, but essentially making me good at nothing.

    That's a good thing.......Numerous members have taken the time to participate in a discussion that contains varying degrees of emotion. The numerous members and visitors who are reading this thread are probably agreeing and disagreeing with some of the replies, but all are witnessing the fact that members do not have a problem engaging in a sometimes heated discussion.

    One of the things I love about iMore is that people can express opinions without fearing retribution from a lynch mob. That's what a forum is about. Not abiding by the company line.

    The OP had a point. He expressed it. There were counter arguments. Nobody got lynched, harassed, banned, etc. That's why I love it here.

    Thanks for the thread, good read. I am about to upgrade from a 5c to 6 and I was just wondering if I should wait for the 6s. After all it is only a few weeks away. But I think I may still go for the 6 as the improvements to the 6s may not warrant paying more and waiting longer. Thoughts?

    Being that we're 3 weeks away from Apple's keynote, I'd wait to at least see what the new iPhone has that may be more appealing than the current iPhone 6, if you can wait that long. If not, there's absolutely nothing wrong with getting the iPhone 6 now.

    Some key features I have heard about are a much stronger aluminum body and the same force touch that is currently used in the Apple Watch. That is the ability to use pressure on the screen to bring up additional features and menus on some apps and functions.

    Congrats... but personally, with the new models coming in about 3 weeks, I would have found a way to limp through and get the iPhone 6S. However, I am sure you will be happy with the iPhone 6.

    I hear ya. But I'm sure this will be enough if an upgrade to keep me satisfied for a year or so. Im really happy with my 5c, its just the storage that's bugging me. Plus I would like apple pay. I can always get the 6s in a year (when all the issues are worked out).
