    Not really.


    But then I hardly ever use a microscope to look at my phone's screen, YMMV...

    i think they need to cut off the web stream to stabilize the Apple Tv stream. Well the stream is completely off now.

    Well the news is now history, in that sense you could say it's historic.

    Nothing, apart from the fact that a live stream is not needed when what you are releasing is totally underwhelming.


    Mr Cook, it is time to GO...even Woz would do better at this point.

    Tim Cook has some 'splainin' to do. Did he choose a Gateway 2000 for his event server?

    The psychological turn-off to the 4.7" for some customers would be that it is less than full HD -- reasonable or not.

    They won't stream shit until.... "and that folks was, one more thing!"

    So the 5.5 inch has real image stabilization, while the 4.7 does not? That's disappointing.

    "Historic" is different from "historical", mind you.

    But you said only products matter.


    If you beleive your own BS you would not care about the live stream only the product.


    The terrible live stream is just the icing on the cake.

    Streaming is a no-go here in the Midwest (St.Louis). Both AppleTV and Apple’s website are locked up tight. You get a few frames and then choke. I guess the servers have given up all hope. While disappointing it means everybody and their cousin are watching.

    What we're seeing on our screens right now is "slo mo video."

    But WHY only have OIS in the 6+. Obviously there's more space to play with, but it sucks that one new iPhone flagship will have a noticeably better camera than another model.

    Not even remotely close to the first time there's feature differentiation in a product line. Having the only difference be screen size would be a wasted opportunity. I noticed they went a tad thicker to get better power life from the larger device as well: another differentiator.


    Image quality is more than the literal number of pixels. Somebody will no doubt do side by sides of what the cameras can actually produce and that will be the proof in the tasting. For instance: low light yields crappy images given the longer exposure times lead to inevitable recording of camera movement (and that will happen even with OIS, I've just got back from NYC with smears of night shoots from the High Line of the Empire State Building with no tripod taken with my Nikon D800... IS can only go so far if the camera has too much time to be moved) so a faster sensor can yield sharper final images than a slower sensor that just has more image points to get smeared....

    This is the best announcement ever! Apple does pretty much everything right with the iPhone and as a bonus I get to watch the delusional fans lose their minds as Apple follows the Android OEMs in all sorts of ways that have been “terrible decisions” in the past. Large screens? Noooooo! Standard resolution of 1080p? Noooooo! More than 326 PPI? Noooooo!

    Oh don't be an ass- whether it's more accurate to say more detailed or whatever, I think it wasn't hard to understand what I meant. For example - using a photo taken on my iPhone to use as my desktop wallpaper (27") - it doesn't look great, even taken in daylight.


    Sure it's fine for a phone wallpaper or sharing on social sites, but it'd be nice to be able to use them everywhere else.
