People make w big deal out of apple mistakes because apple followers always carry on like apple is the best and perfect device ever made. So logically when an issue arrives people will remind the fan boys that their beloved device is not as perfect as they think. Of course the fanboys take it personal as a cult would. Without Steve Jobs apple will go down

Yet people buy the iPhone because they know how good it is. Myself and many people with good experience in smartphones and IT simply agree Apple is a much more solid product in general. Every phone has flaws, every Droid has been far from perfect. It's only because the iPhone IS the premier product that any flaw - no matter how few people get effected - will be highlighted.

What makes me laugh is a post about fault mentioned on the iPhone attracts more attention than the release of a Droid! Come one, be honest, you hate Apple for no justifiable reason. Most iPhone haters do. I used to be an iPhone hater 3 years ago just like you as listened to fellow haters with rubbish about iPhones, then when I experienced the brand myself I knew that once you go Apple it's hard to go back. The iPhone IS the superior smartphone, you need to get one if you dont believe me.

I mean many experts agree that whilst Android is far more customisable than the iOS, the iOS is far more stable, polished and User Friendly. That's a Fact. I tried out a Galaxy S2 last year but after a while I quiet happily switched back to the Apple. I dont need several home screens with live wallpaper and widgets, I need a phone that works to my every need and an iPhone does that. I found the Galaxy S2 with glitches and bugs, thank god I dont listen to Android fanboys telling me how superior a Droid is to an iPhone. Most people with an iPhone know how good an iPhone is.

As for use. I have had my note for 10 months and now rarely use my tablet and use my laptop a lot less. I would say try it before you knock it. ps I used iphone for 2 years but was sick of limited hardware and being tied to itunes.

the thing is that the purple flare happens with th 5 but not ther 4S. Therefore IT IS A PROBLEM.

Apple has really dropped the ball with the 5 and can no longer be considered the gosh
D of mobile devices. Personally the new urber device seems to be the NOTE 2.

WOW!!!! So you pay £500+ for an iPhone and that's what you get!!! SHOCKING!!! Pity other manufacturers handsets don't do that!! Admit that its a fault and not that we should expect this to be normal! that's bloody outrageous!!!!

Do realize that iphone never been superior to android since 2010.its just an overpriced simple phone sitting under the shadow of apple logo .when you look at the evolution of iphone and ios compared to android phones ,you will come to know that iphone is silently losing its grip from smartphone industry meanwhile, apple is taking the advantage of the ignorance of their blind brand loving customers like you and including ladies as a solution and they programming their customers in their ecosystem to follow them in future.
Being an android power user ,i feel iphone like a premium toy..thats all

The reason why android users hate on apple users is because we did the swap to see what android is all about and realised that it is far more superior than ios. So we as android users want to convince you.

There is LTE reception problem. If you don't believe me, google it. Also, your statement is wrong that they were forced to leave google map. No, they did it themselves. Just google it too. They thought they are confronting google. By they way, why did they dump the Youtube app then?
(Don't think I am praising google. I am not a fandroid.)

I have a 4S which is immaculate and no issues whatsoever with the camera. So I love the iphone, it really is the best smartphone in general. However I think Apple are going a little over the top n arrogant by not acknowledging there is a fault with the camera. If we're going to pay premium for a product then we expect premium as a customer. Hopefully this is just a minority of customers experiencing issues, just like those experiencing issues with paint chips on their phone body. Again I hope it's just a minority and not many people experiencing issues.

For those Android fans coming here to bash the iphone due to issues being highlighted, seriously this is desperation. It's been proven the iphone is superior to Droids in many areas so a minority if faults does not make the overall brand inferior.

What has S3 or any other phone has to do for an issue of another company's product? Admit the issue, Address the issue, Rectify the issue, make the customer feel valued.
