    iPhone 6, how many people have got it here on Hubpages and how many have not or not interested. State your reasons

      I'm an Android girl. I can't be bothered with the high prices it costs to be assimilated into the iPhone cult.

        I do like the Apple products, but I'm an android girl when it comes to phones. I recently updated to the HTC One M8 and I love it.  I'll never buy an iphone.

          I have an HTC One V, on VirginMobile. It does everything I need, and I don't pay an arm and a leg.

    Don't have one; probably won't get one. I have an outdated flip phone, (dumb phone) that I rarely use. Signals are a bit spotty where I live.
    (I do, however, have an iPad mini.)

    I would love an iPhone, but I won't be getting one. The monthly fees are just too expensive here in Canada. I make do with a basic cell phone.

    I don't rush out to buy new technology if my old stuff works just fine. It would be a total waste of money. Add to that, new items these days often aren't fully tested (eg, how about that iphone which bends in the pocket etc). Even if you were to buy new, it would be best to wait until the first round of guinea pigs had tested theirs and the price comes down a bit.

    Here are some examples of the longevity I have experienced from my items:

    - a cheap $15 pocket usb mp3 player from a no name Chinese brand which I use 5 days a week. It is now 12 years old and I'm still listening to it every day at work. Name brands are not as long lasting as this one!

    - I've owned 2 computers (including the one I am working on) since year 2000. I just fix the broken parts.

    - I used Windows 95, then upgraded to XP, now Windows 7. I only upgrade software when a version seems to be really well accepted by everyone, which is loved in the workplace and which is widely popular on the net and talked about. I do not upgrade on the in between versions at all as once again, the market is being milked to be test guinea pigs.

    - I paid $120 for my printer several years ago. I did my research and have a printer that prints 50,000 pages per cartridge of toner. So it pays to do your homework.

      wow, that's really true. I'm not a fan of iOS but I won't mind getting one for the sake of curiosity. Only if money were flowing in my backyard.

    I didn't get one and am not interested. I have an iPhone 5c that is less than a year old and works just fine. There don't seem to be enough differences in features (that are meaningful to me) to justify going out and spending that much money. I'm also considering an Android next time around.

      Maybe a few inches to the size made the difference

    I was given one for my birthday in early September and it arrived this week.  This is my first smartphone.

    We, my wife and I, both have the LG Optimus G which operates on the Android OS and we are satisfied with it.  These were upgrades from Sprint with no additional cost and do many things.  So many things that over the last year or so we are still finding new things out!

    I have found more things to be compatible with the Android OS versus the Apple product OS.

    I happened to have a Galaxy and an Iphone. I think I'm getting rid of the Iphone when the contract ends. It's just not as user friendly as the Galaxy in my opinion. It looks nice though.

      I guess the iPhone is popular for its looks. There are always glitches in the Firmware update. Taje for instance in the past and now, the new iPhone 6 wwhich was quickly updated to iOS 8.0.2 because of connectivity problems

    I think for what we do,  everyone should buy the Samsung note.  I had an iPhone.  But was okay but just not enough features.
