    I'm really hoping that Microsoft will announce a few game changers soon as well. Otherwise, their market share will drop and people will lose interest. The 830 and 735 are great, but not what I would call "game changers". Still waiting for Microsoft's smart watch too...

    Nah...I do want a Microsoft watch.
    I'll probably get a Ipad mini later in the year.

    The iPhone 6 is not a game changer.

    Give me a real upgrade from my 920 on ATT and my money belongs to Microsoft.

    It's funny, the 1520 has a better display than the 4.7", is on par with the 6+, just fewer PPI, more memory with SD card, a much better camera and is $100 less.

    If the app story was 1:1 MS:Apple, you'd be hard pressed to justify an iPhone.

    While I'm not terribly impressed with what Apple put out today, I will say that they continue to hurt WP at least here in the States. Due to the fact that Verizon is the only carrier selling the Icon, the 930 not being available at all, and the 1520 being too big for some, Microsoft doesn't really have a regular sized flagship or phablet flagship accessible to anyone who wants it on any one of the carriers. I love my 1020 but I'm looking for something a little thinner, lighter, and with a faster processor but sadly that's not an option as I won't buy an HTC out of fear of them not providing updates in a timely manner. If I did bail for anything, I think it'd be for the new Moto X.

    And I like the 1520 design better. The 6's look like the 925.

    Nope. It's an app-launcher OS on a bigger screen.

    The M8 is calling me though. I want to get on my family's plan on Sprint though so come on Sprint, let me know when yo9u are getting the M8!

    Because of the size and thinness of the 6 Plus, it will have larger flex stressors top to bottom (imagine trying to fold it in half) and also corner to opposite corner (twisting). Some 1520's have some "phantom tap" issues for this reason. Apple certainly has top notch engineering, and with the example of the 1520, the benefit of hindsight, but engineering is ultimately the process of managing failure, not necessarily eliminating it. Apple also tends to give an upper hand to design (form) over engineering (function).

    I think more than a few iPhone 5/5s screen breaks could be attributed to their flex stability as compared to a user's experience with previous models.

    I was but in all honesty I am mot downgrading to a lower res camera and I was really hoping apple would increase the resolution of the ffc. I like the 6plus but I am staying with my 1520. Besides I hate the colors of iPhones.

    I like the screen size of the 6 plus but that bezel is awfully big and I'm still interested in seeing the next generation of top-end Windows Phones. At this point, it's probably wait, 6 plus or Note 4. All is subject to playing with various models in the store, of course.

    I'm not "bailing" for the iPhone 6, but I could see myself carrying my 1520 AND an iPhone 6 Plus!
    No, I'd never "leave" Windows Phone for another platform now, but I don't see why someone couldn't have both. The best of both worlds! Why? Because I can! That, and I'd have access to all those apps that I've been missing (I came to WP after being an iPhone owner for 4 generations - I had the original iPhone, the 3G, the 4, and the 4S) then switched to WP8 when it and the Nokia Lumia 920 came out... Been here ever since! Upgraded to a 1020, and now a 1520 and LOVE this phone! I'll definitely be keeping my 1520 on this line until MS decides to release a real flagship successor. Until then though, no reason why I couldn't get the iPhone 6 Plus on my other line and have both!

    Or not.... maybe I'll just wait a little longer... and wait some more.. Come on Microsoft, we're waiting!!!!

    If you call the ip6 a game changer, then MS/Nokia released a game changer long ago with the 1520. Basically what the IP6 is But better!

    If you are into apps then IP6 is better, but I'd have to say being here on WP most of us are not into Apps.
    I love my live tiles and Cortana and the IP has nothing to offer me.

    It's just crazy to pay almost a $500 premium for the 2 year old tech IP6+ over the sweetness of the Lumia 1520.3.

    I'm getting the 6 Plus. I like Windows, but I want a new phone and the 6 plus will hold me over until Microsoft releases their new flagship phone. There's really nothing to lose by getting the new iPhone. When I get bored with it, I can sell it for more than enough to buy off contract whatever is the latest and greatest Windows device. And while I was really close to pulling the trigger on the M8, being an HTC really scared me off. If Microsoft would have released the M8 under the Lumia brand I would have jumped on it and not looked back.

    As soon as Microsoft releases a 64 bit phone with a 64 bit platform and a fingerprint reader I might be inclined to return, but until then I'm getting an iPhone 6+ on Friday.

    Fingerprint readers is old tech it will eventually become something that someone can still your identity with on another level. The iPhone is not a game changer it's just catching up with the rest of the smart phone world. The I phone is just popular not innovative. 64 bit is good for a IPhone but our 32bit windows phones perform just as well if not better. The I phone just got NFC android and windows phone has been rocking NFC for awhile now but now that the iPhone has it now it's "popular" "innovative":) apple makes good hardware but not the best. Apple is smart in that they have become part of pop culture, they are a household name, it's part of the trend to rock a iPhone even in Hollywood.

    Right, capacitive fingerprint readers are old tech and 32 bit preforms just as well as 64 bit. ;)
    Your very funny.

    Actually, fingerprint scanners ARE old technology, judgeing by your response you were probably not around in the early 90s to have one on your laptop computer. And they are no longer there because they were and are unreliable. My Father's IP5 scanner worked only about 40% of the time, and got so annoying that it's shut off. Then theres 64 bit. Yes, it could be a good feature if ANY PROGRAMS or APPS actually used it. That's a smoke and mirrors spec by apple to make you think your getting a super fast phone, when my "un revoloutionary", un hip in the eyes of holywood (god help me), nokia windows phone is just as fast and smooth as anything released from the great minds at Cupertino.

    Next up, REALLY? You buy a phone because HOLYWOOD thinks their cool? Really? that is the lamest most fanboy'ish reason to buy anything I have ever heard.

    That's too funny! I almost snorted beer out my nose when I read that. ha ha ha.

    I agree with the above. We had NFC for ages, but lordy lordy look was is "new and revoloutionary" in the land of the turtle neck, NFC. Everyone else stole that idea 2 years ago from apple....ha ha ha. I am going to sell black turtle necks with apple logos on them for 150 a piece because they have a built in new revolutionary neck warmer.
