  1. I think we are getting used to the iPhone, yawn …… Camera, Storage ,Processor,
    Im beginning to question the need to upgrade at the rate they churn out these phones.
    2015 smartphone still performs great be it android or ios.

  2. I think this release is proof that innovation in smartphones now requires longer release cycles. Storage, Camera, Processor and Software are what they have left to change. They spent minutes talking about a case, and they tried to get away with convincing us that losing a headphone jack is an engineering feat

    1. there is NO new inovation at all from Apple here, they just refreshed the old technology and put their expensive tag name!

  3. standard features really, nothing exciting here!! Wireless headphones have been on the market for donkey years, they have just refreshed the presentation and design of them!!

    Besides exploding batteries and risk of putting your house on fire, l think Samsung have a winner with their eye scanning unlocking feature. Its something new and a pacesetter

  4. Great Article… I love to read your articles because your writing style is too good, its is very very helpful for all of us and I never get bored while reading your article because, they are becomes a more and more interesting from the starting lines until the end.

    1. If you not the author of this article then you must be his girlfriend, if thats not the case then you have a crush on him, if you a guy, dude, you super gay.

  5. “Airpods” are just Bluetooth headphones costing $160, WTF. I could get decent Beats headphones for that price never mind a pair of Bluetooth headsets that cost $75 each.

      1. I know, my point is Beats are pricey, yes, but they are more value for money than zvimaearphones izvi

  6. hahahah clearly many haters here who either cant afford the new phone or are loyal to the defunct Samsung, please be quick in sending back your explosive devices to Samsung to fix the battery issues. Apple is a brand and they sell quality products, their target market isn’t people who count pennies or who find faults to hold a conversation. If you don’t see the need to upgrade that’s OK, some of us will without even checking the price tag.

  7. @willo nice!!! Totally agree! Funny thing is the same stuff was said when Apple introduced biometric fingerprint scanner on iPhone 5s and look now all phones are doin it! It’s only a matter of time till Samsung also gets rid of the earphone jack, that’s a fact!

      1. Dave, Willo na Team marovha. Hadzishandi boyz idzi. Vanogara vari pa bhiriji mu raini mangu, vachibhema weed.

    1. The Chinese came up with these bluetooth headgear, and its not a new thingy incase you might give credit to Apple. Just a different naming, “airphones” and ommiting the jack port on their device.

  8. i used to love this forum but now it sucks..unbalanced reviews,you seriously don know nothing about technology…1334 x 750 pixels @ 326 ppi screen rangu re xperia z1 ya2014 rinocheka kupfura reiphone seven (1080 x 1920 pixels ~441 ppi pixel density) saka for a next gen phone we would expect something better….from you as a blogger we expect to hear not only what apple said but what you think from a tech point of view…after all its techzim right?
