Would this help? I did a quick search and google spit out the kind of antenna's that mounted on the back windows of cars in the early 90's. Is that what you are referring to?

Better would be a high gain yagi antenna pointed at the transmitter. Then using as little low loss cable as possible (<25') to an omni directional antenna in the area you want the signal gain in.

The 6+ is just massive. With a 5.5 display it might be kind of a pain to carry around.

Saw the 6plus yesterday. I'm a front pocket phone carrier. This one wouldn't survive a day with me. Where do you high tech contractors who are hands on keep these huge phones. I'll stick with my iPhone 4

Re: Iphone 6 Or 6 Plus?


A few days ago iOS 8 swayed me to use my upgrade to go Samsung. Then I looked at the size of these new phones and they're all huge! Maybe I'll be sticking with Apple after all. Maybe I'll just get a 5c. I still haven't been in the store to put my hands on any of these pocket tablets.

So much for that sapphire glass being better. I got to have mine in a case if I get one so the 6+ will be the size of my iPad after that. Looks like it will have to be the 6 for me.

Until phones are way more durable I will always have mine in a case. I have probably dropped my 5 at least 100 times in 2 years I would guess at least 75 of those have been at work. One 13' fall, one tumbling down the road, a few on gravel, some concrete, etc. it's in an incipio dual pro. No damage to the phone at all. It will be sweet when we have at least flip phone durability on smart phones or better.

Yeah. The reach function has been coming in handy for me. Haven't had to readjust my grip to hit anything in the upper left corner yet. Overall, I'm happy with the phone.

Me to, except the finger print scanner on works about 50% of the time. I might just have to re calibrate it

I scanned my right thumb twice so it can use either of the readings for a match. Then added my right index finger and left thumb and index. Been 100% so far.

Is it possible for you to engage in conversation without throwing around the term "fanboy" at every turn?

Because it was the fanboys who wouldn't shut up about how much better sapphire would be over other brands glass choices. Just a bunch of hype from the fanboys and then it don't even include it lol.
