They are illegal and manipulative. Im not being angry. Nice though your comment was random and had nothing to do with what I said.

what the iphone 5 should've been.
4.5 inch 720p screen
1.5 quad core
micro sd card slot
removable battery
12 mp camera with optical stability.

but at apples pace I should get this in iphone 7. so I just got the samsung galaxy S3 instead.
but the new LG optimus G looks very interesting.

what apple would do without any competition.
1. charge $2000 a phone.
2. make no improvements every year.just change a tiny bit and call it revolutionary.
3. brainwash everybody and steal everybody's savings and take over the world

I'm not saying the iOS6 or any upgrade needs to be ground breaking, it's just that not alot has changed since iOS4.

There is no one "right" or "best" phone. Each has their own pro's and cons. People, stop hating and supporting blindly. Take a little time to do some research and try out (without prejudice) what's out there - then choose the phone that's right for you.

That's the whole idea of choice and free market.

Some examples .. upcoming Sony Xperia V, ip57 cert. Water-dust proof, 13 mp, 720p screen, also slim and light / Samsung Beam, it has a projector built in / Samsung S3, Quad core, Amazing fluid screen, also very light and slim, plus a wonderful shooter/ Nokia Lumia 920 , wireless charging, puremotionhd screen which can be used while wearing a glove, Amazing camera with stabilization and anti-shake / Nokia Pureview 808, 41mp camera which kills all smartphone cameras, crisp ultra clear sound recording.

These are some unbiased examples :) outside Apple's jailed world there is a bunch of cheaper, better, and a variety of smartphones and some are targeted for the enthusiasts only, this shows that some companies do care if u are into cameras, and some people do care if ur a traveler who needs a ip57 cert. smartphone, and others give the geeks the heep of power they lust in a smartphone.

One advice, wake up.

hey guys remember sonyericsson xperia X1? that phone had a 311ppi screen back in 2008. so who was first to use 'retina display'? if retina is a screen with above 300ppi was apple the first company to use a retina screen in 2010?
