Apple iPhone 4S mania continues: 1M preorders in first 24 hours  - read the full textNot that we had any doubt of the iPhone 4S market prospects, given that iOS fans had to wait 16 months for an upgrade, but the latest numbers provided by Apple are simply stunning. It turns out that 1 million pre-orders were placed in the first 24 hours after the 4S page went live in the Apple...

Good thing about NOT changing Iphone 4S physical appearance is that I don't need to change all those casings, bumpers and accessories that I bought for the Iphone 4.

Apple also considers other businesses like case manufacturers, etc.

it looks like the times when cigarettes were cool. You looked sophisticated if you smoked and holded a pack of cigarettes on your hands. History really repeats itself. These apple fans are just addicted to the products, its all psychological. I don't see how using an iphone is making your life better however a lot of people have a lot of money and for sure they will get the latest and coolist phone, its not a surprise about it.

Hmmmm...some impressive statistics right there,wish one Steve Jobs were alive to hear this. But opening the iphone 4S specifications page on GSMArena.com tells a totally different story! Why are guys rating this apple new kid on the block so low? Seriously speaking by now I was expecting my S8500 wave to be holding position 3 on the ratings table!

I would be interested to see how Iphone 4S will fare in Samsung home turf in Korea. I do hope, Iphone 4S will beat the hell out of Samsung there!

Now if you go to SG and HK and just observe people in the trains, almost all of them uses an Iphone or any iOS product for that matter - true!

> In reply to [deleted post]Branding really is important. I have to admit, if you have Iphone, you are cool.

If you have an Android, you still have to prove to other people who don't have an Iphone or an Android that Android (and their phones) are equally levelled with Iphones.

But for us, just show the flashy Apply logo, and they get the idea.

Like it or not...iPhone is an Icon just like Jobs.
You can name dozens of mobilephone that you've think of is better than the iPhone could offer. But the truth is, iPhone is on league of it's own. Can't touch it. A galaxy will always be just a, well...a galaxy.

What cn i say....really surprised. Are people that desperate? Don't get me wrong iphone's are cool and all, but this iphone4s is a big disappointment. Maybe we should'nt be having this iphone 4s vs SGSII argument at all 'cos either AVERAGE folks don't really care about specs in a phone or those with pre-orders are die-hard iphone fans who want to celebrate their hero...Steve.

> In reply to [deleted post]I would disagree with that, my GS2 is brilliant, the os works perfect without any issues. My apps are set to auto update which is brilliant, runs so smooth and i think its a brilliant phone. I am not a fan boy, my wife owns a 3gs and i think that is a brilliant phone, the os is good, runs smooth but I just don't think that it is as good as the GS2, I am not comparing the 3gs to the gs2 im saying the os isn't as good and smooth as android. Would completely disagree with you thing of apple = cool. Android means your in denial or can't afford an iphone. I can easily afford 1,2 or 3 iphones, sim free or contract but they aren't as good as an adroid phone. Like I said, i aint a fan boy and think apple is a good phone but not up to scratch. And everyone is up in arms about the iphone camera, mine records in 1080p, brilliant quality sound and the stills are even better. My mate has the SE Neo and that camera is just as good if not better than mine. So don't understand the hype about the camera being 8mp either. Its a good phone but not good enough I think.

Users has a 1 year guarranty to enjoy it without that feeling of uneasy that in weeks time, another "Galaxy" will be available.

That was when it was with only 1 Carrier...with AT&T it reached 600K in 24h. Now it has 3 Carriers and only at over 1 Mil?? Do the Math and see that it actually shrink in numbers not really grow....should have had over 2 Millions to actually surprise me!
