I think the point is that Samsung is still dependent upon Qualcomm. Apple is designing dual-core processors that run as fast as Qualcomm's quad-core processors and are more power efficient. Samsung is designing double quad-core (which is what "octa-core" really is) big.LITTLE processors that are slower and less power efficient than Qualcomm's. So yes, Samsung can ship a Note 4 that holds its own against the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, but they are enriching Qualcomm in doing...
Squaretrade rated the iPhone 6 Plus the most durable phone with a screen greater than 5".
Apparently some people in Australia had some issues with 8.0.2 when it first rolled out, but now it seems to be fine, if comments on Macrumors are accurate.
I'm having this issue, too. iPhone 6, OTA update, AT&T.
Because of all the issues with the preorder site, I quickly found myself going from 0 pre-orders after 3 hours of trying to 4 in about 30 minutes. I decided to cancel the three extra orders, but I can see why someone may have decided to try selling them on eBay. In my case, with a grand total of 2 hours of sleep in as many days I ordered the wrong color, and also ordered from Verizon directly before finally getting the one I really wanted.
The T-Mobile versions bought direct from Apple are unlocked. I bought one to use with AT&T. I'm posting from it right now. I did get an SMS to change my SIM but that took 10 minutes at an AT&T store Friday evening.Also, the Verizon phones are all unlocked. Apple Stores will sell them device only, even if Verizon itself won't.
One thing he needs to address is how to reconcile reducing carbon output with shipping the vast majority of their products through airplanes from China to North America and Western Europe. That said, capitalism has done more than its share to improve the environment. Fracking, as controversial as it is, is responsible for reducing US carbon emissions to levels last seen in 1994. We need to make sure it doesn't have other unintended consequences, but generally speaking it...
 Which is exactly what they are going to do.  They are decent phones, which is part of the reason why they have sold as well as they have. A lot of the bashing is because the ads look like a desperation move.
So did Samsumg forget about the first smartphone with a 5" screen? The Dell Streak, which predates the Note by a year. http://www.gsmarena.com/dell_streak-3353.php
I finally gave up on the website and just ordered through the iPhone app using AT&T Next. I guess I can always pre-pay and get AT&T to unlock it if I plan to go overseas. It still shows delivery on 9/19. iPhone 6 64GB Space Gray.
