Apple iPhone 6 or the 5C?

I am considering buying either the Apple iPhone 6 or the 5C. Cost is one reason I am considering the 5C. Which one would be better, the 6 or the 5C? I am not going to be pre-ordering this phone. It will be a Christmas present.

Samsung s5 active or iphone6

I am looking to upgrade from my iPhone 5 but unsure if I should move to the Galaxy s5 active or the iPhone 6. I've only ever had iPhones and I'm getting bored with them. My job requires 24 hr availability and a decently sturdy phone. I've had an issue with the iPhone 5 battery life. Which one is better and why?
If you don't mind the sh!tload of bugs iOS 8 is currently experiencing, then stay with Apple and get the iPhone 6. Wink

But, I think it's more of what you're looking for. Check what both phones have to offer and see if they satisfy your needs.

VoLTE

Has anyone tested VoLTE on the iPhone 6? Im curious as when the LTE singnal degrades how is voice quality maintained? Also, if the other caller does not have VoLTE phone, can you still use data while on a call? In other words, do you still use VoLTE even if the other caller does not?
iPhone 6 has a "Cellular" menu, then LTE selected as "Data Only" by default. Changing this to "Data and Voice" enables VoLTE. All VoLTE calls use the data channel, and as such effectively let you use data and voice simultaneously for every call (ass...

Apple iPhone 6 Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connection problems?

Hello everyone. I have been hearing reports about the new iPhone 6 having issues with connecting to wi-fi and bluetooth and also having problems with the fingerprint scanner. Has anyone experienced this issue? Is this something that could be fixed before December? I am considering purchasing one of these phones during that time.
Here ya' go:

Bluetooth in iOS 8 has very little signal strength.

iPhone 6 on cricket wireless

I bought an AT&T iPhone 6 and got it to work with my Cricket Wireless service! Just make sure to remove find my phone service, factory reset the phone with "Reset all settings" and during initial activation/setup pop in your cricket SIM card!

It is working great!
That is cool you have gotten your iPhone 6 to work on Cricket Wireless. How do you like the phone so far? I am considering purchasing one, but not until December.

Difference between OIS and Non-OIS images should have been quantified.

That difference is something that regular consumers cannot test. Given the past comments regarding phone details like pen tile LCD pixels, the width of bezels, and uneven display scrolling the ability to identity differences in image quality should have been too compelling to pass up. Furthermore, if there is actually zero difference between cameras, regardless how images are taken, that is a scoop in and of itself, because Apple would be guilty of false advertising. Hopefully, these cameras will be scientifically compared in a future OIS specific iPhone 6/6+ review.

VoLTE: Simultaneous Voice and Data

So the one thing Apple's iPhones have been incapable of doing on CDMA is simultaneous voice and data. With VoLTE this is supposed to be remedied and yet no mention that you tested the ability to surf the Web while on a call with VoLTE enabled.

VoLTE is a battery killer on the iPhone

I have an iPhone 6 128gb. Great phone and all, but the battery seems comparable to the 5s. Turn VoLTE on and your talk time will be cut in half, but you will be able to talk and browse at the same time.

VoLTE voice quality?

Eric, have you been able to test the voice quality of a VoLTE call with another VoLTE-capable device on Verizon? It's supposed to be better, but I'm curious as to how much better.

Don't be fooled

If you try and get this in the first few weeks after launch you will likely find it to be out of stock. However, it is not out of stock because it's such a great phone and everyone and their mom is buying it. It's because they constrain the inventory so much. We just got word that we will be receiving only 1, that's right, ONE per location with only 1,000 available to order for financing company wide. Back-orders are expected to be filled in 4-6 weeks.

You gotta hand it to Apple's marketing team tho, no one can hype up a new product like them.
Got an update, looks like we will be getting 2 per store!

The "new" iPhone 6

Has the same specs as the 2012 LG's Nexus 4. You can compare it yourselves:

iPhone 6:

Welcome to 2012 iSheeps!
Hmmm, I guess if you're talking just about screen size, you're right. Otherwise, I don't see any other similarities. The good news is if you're still using that Nexus, you should be eligible for an upgrade soon.
