    Hey JR, how much of a lip does the NGP case have? I am using a Dualpro right now and It's nice but it's kind of big and not as grippy as I'd like.

    Bought a Coke with Apple Pay at Walgreens, just to try it out. Surprisingly satisfying. Can't wait to use it more often.

    So far I've bought rubbers and green tea with Apple Pay. They stil rush you when you bag your own stuff.

    Is that some reference to the rubbers?

    I usually find that they give you a bit more time...

    It's a fairly streamlined case. Thin and doesn't have a large lip. It offers protection, but it's not a tank or anything.

    My laptop charger just broke off. I knew this was coming but I really wish Apple would use something more substantial than the crap they use to cover cables.

    Apple's cables and chargers have always been an issue. I've had both the classic 30-pin and lightning cables break on me many times over the years.

    Same bad luck with cables and chargers here. But, pretty good luck with the EarPods. Probably shouldn't have said that....

    I ended up giving the EarPods that came with my 5 to my dad, so the set that came with my 6 are the first I have used. I find them surprisingly comfortable.

    So I got the 6, been using it for a few days, but I still feel like it's too big. My old iPhone 5 was the perfect size for me, I could use it one handed easily, it was easy to grip and easy to pick up. The 6 is slippery because of its curved edge design, and the screen is at this awkward size for me where I can't hold it securely and use it with one hand at the same time. Of course this depends on hand size, but nonetheless I still find myself longing for my old phone

    Word of warning about the Incipio NGP. Doesn't provide as much protection as I assumed. I have a small crack by the home button near the bottom of the phone. Nothing bad, but I feel like the case should have prevented it. I think I'm going to look into a slightly thicker and more robust case to switch out too. These phones are so thin that I'm not really sure a minimalist case like the NGP is needed.

    I have grown to really like my Dualpro. At first I wasn't so sure but now after a week I'm really happy with it. The rubberized part is peeling just a little bit in one of the corners but nothing to really fret about.

    I've had the 6 plus since launch day and it feels like a normal sized phone to me now. My hands are pretty small, but i have not had a problem with the 6 plus. I wear super skinny pants too and no signs of bending. I needed something to do a lot of reading on, didn't want to lug around a tablet just for that reason. 6 plus does it all and i rec it.

    Camera is also amazing and has replaced my canon s110.

    Does anyone know if Apple will be releasing a new iPad 3 in the future?

    I've never really been into the Air series.
