i think the reasons for Apple ’s failure with the iPhone4 are complex and unseparable from the
company ’s success among consumers. They prioritized looks (which made them popular) and
as a result had to compromise function. The
antenna design allows for a slimmer device,
however exposing it to the bare touch makes
reception a lot more vulnerable to interference
during normal use than for any other phone. Most of Apple ’s customers value their philosophy (form before function) and therefore will be
content with a cosmetic solution such as
changing the signal bar algorithm. Apple rely on
their fans ’ shallowness, and thus react as they did — which is disappointing to anyone capable of critical thinking.
The opposite to denial and cosmetic solutions — to take measures and fix the technical issue — would have to start with admitting that they
made a mistake. For a company that heavily relies
on a religious fan base, that would be a very hard
step which they chose not to take.
So, to answer briefly, they screwed up in all ways
possible, but they stayed true to themselves … and to their profits

Why spent so much time and energy trying to change something you can't? besides does it really matter?? People will buy what they want. Unfortunately a lot of people buy iphone 4 to be accepted or feel important. Let them be if they want to be shallow.It is their right to be shallow and have no personality. Now a real tech geek that will mod a iphone or Android phone are the people that will appreciate the phones ability. I had a 3GS it was a brilliant phone. I now have a Moto XT720 and it is also awesome. So get what you want, life is to short to get worked up about things like this.

[deleted post]How is it that you, the one with the high IQ fails to realise that the phone to beat is the Iphone? Every other smartphone released these days the question asked of it is "IS THIS THE IPHONE KILLER?" So many have come and went this phone still stands and to make matters they've not even released the white version.
Nokia fans are stuck in Symbian's past glory the world has moved. IOS and Android are a new breed, I must admit it's never easy to convince the world to move on. This time next Android would have took over the top slot. Nokia are the world's BIGGEST phone manufactures but NOT THE BEST. Sony Ericsson and Samsung have both dumped Symbian, gave em nothing but headaches.
2011 is going to be interesting. iPhone 5 will be exciting to see. Android in my opinion is going to lose market share because of WP7 as an entrant, as well as the one third of users in the survey that will move platforms.
Blackberry I predict will continue to lose market share, unsure about Nokia and Symbian. WebOS yet to make its mark. Things are going to get exciting.
The war of the smartphones of 2010 is nearly over, but the winner is already clear. iPhone 4 stands tall over its competitors.
Will the iPhone 5 win 2011? No one knows, but the dominance of the iPhone 4 this year is plain for all to see.

The iPhone 4 is one if the best smartphones on the market, steamrolling the competition with its sales. WP7 is going to take back market share from Android.
