Reaching down and plugging in a cable in the middle of the night in a dark room is a pain. When I get to work, I just throw the phone n my pad, charging. No fiddling, no getting stuck on a dock. On my coffee table, I have installed charging pads - put your phone on the coffee table (simple IKEA table) and it starts to top up the battery...cables are for chumps With every iteration of a device, it should not be going backwards. So when Apple feeds you BS like "The fastest iPhone EVER" of course it is. It *SHOULD* be faster than ever. It *SHOULD* have better battery life than ever. These are not things we need to be told, they are EXPECTED. Phones are fast now. We need reasons to upgrade. My phone is playing up so I need a new one, but if it was acting as intended to start with, I would be pushing out my phone for another year. A bit of extra RAM on one of the models. A bit faster processor, slight improvements in screen tech, a button that no longer clicks or moves. If you think these are features you are eating into Apples marketing BS. A second camera with 2x magnification - that's a new feature, and they bought OIS to the non-plus. Water resistance too, but really that took too long for them to bring to market. Fast charging was marketable, yet there is no mention. No specs that I have seen either. This would help me consider sacrificing wireless charging (begrudgingly) but I really need to see proof it isn't just vaporware.
