U2 are so 1980's and 90's. I would much rather see someone more relevant from this decade. 
Samsung at least offered two models. If people prefer the wrap-around edge they have an option and if they don't also an option.    Here are the specs.
I am open to any idea that is safe, secure, and makes it easier for all of us to access sites, apps, email, etc..without having to use long and burdensome passwords. I think temp passwords by text would be the easiest but I don't know much about Bitcoin. 
That is one ugly watch. I would like a modern smart watch type device for lack of a better term but I also don't want to wear plastic or leather bands. The design of a watch is even more important than a phone since it is so visible on your wrist. You can hide an ugly phone in a case or your pocket if you wanted but on your wrist it will make a far bigger fashion statement. I want something I won't be embarrassed to wear. My Breitling that I bought nearly 25 years ago is...
I am waiting for the day when passwords are a distant memory. To be safe and secure you have to use long and difficult to remember ones. You also should never use the same ones on different sites and change often. I would much prefer a temp password sent by text that only last 15 minutes before it expires then only need to remember the email address or username. 
I have all the major cards, Amex, Visa, MC, and Discover. Recently I have pretty much switched all my purchases to Discover for the simple reason they offer more cash back along with additional promotions. September is the last month of a 6 month promotion where I will get $500 additional cash back in addition to the normal ones. I will assume if Apple releases NFC they will likely include Discover as well. 
 I saw recently one of those breakdown type sites that estimate parts to a fairly accurate degree. I believe they priced the 16GB storage in the 5s at around $9. I can't find that article but did find one a little older. "Apple spends at least $191 on components to build a 16-gigabyte iPhone 5S. The cost rises to $210 for a 64 GB unit. The cost of assembly adds another $8 per unit, bringing the range to between $199 and $218m [...]On the iPhone 5C, the lower-priced model...
You would be right. My 5s has a 1560 mAh battery and my battery case has a 2300 mAh battery for a total of 3860 mAh which more than doubles the battery life. Even under the heaviest of usages my iPhone is still usually going strong from early morning till very late at night. 
I really don't care if they use IGZO, OLED, LCD, or any other type of display as long as they mange to improve every release and stay competitive with displays on other phones. I have to say I am very impressed by the latest generation of OLED though. Their one weak point used to be bad visibility in outdoor light with the sun but they managed to overcome that with the newest OLED displays. No honest person that actually does a number of side by side tests with a 5s and S5...
 I hope they go beyond simply maintaining battery life and instead manage to extend battery life by 2 or 3 or even more hours over the 5s. With an additional 2 hours I could likely forego a battery case for my iPhone 6 for the first time ever.
