So that you telling us that our classiness / status is based on a phone? lol iphone 5 dont need quad-core because it cant multitask. iphone is not the most expensive as you think. theres are still many android there are much expansive than your god iphone 5. iphone 5 is only overprice crap. you want to be class? buy vertue kido the real expensive but reasonable price. i think you only buy your iphone its only because of the price tag not because the functinality! i do read some of your comment everywhere and you always talking about price tag and about classines and you are not talking about your expirience using your superb product. or maybe you are just counting replies upon your comments. dont allow other people call you stupid for being sarcastic. so dont fool your self! sory but if this what you meant. i'm not here only to hurt you just saying :-) peace!!!

Cheers!

If you want a prestige phone buy a vertu or a blackberry porsche. They are made with quality materials. They are basically high end jewelry with a phone attached. Iphone on the other hand is overpriced and cheap to make. No iphone in the history of iphones cost more than 300 to make. Iphone5 is the cheapest iphone in history 150 but it sells for 900... With less functionality than samsung and less innovation than nokia. You are better off with a motorola phone. They are water resistant and made with kevlar.

I was going to buy the iphone 5 in the last couple of days from the apple uk site and i was stunned in how much is the 64GB price; and from your post it sounds promising and well its sounds amazingly good price because usually traders all over the world would have to cut down the prices for the iphone in which it is ridiculously expensive, Well Apple should announce hopefully their official pricing for their products soon.

And you wrote this comment sitting in the rear seat of your Maybach Landaulet with an EX F1 race car driver as your Chauffer, driving along the roads of Monte Carlo or whatever on the way to the airport to get onboard your Private Jet or an Antonov like the rich Russian guy has in 1012 movie right?

Get real dude, you seriously think there are 10's of millions of celebrities and billionares out there in Ameriaca buying IPhones. What we have are millions of IFans like you, who buy and IPhone and feel as if you are living life as I mentioned above.

I'm pretty sure you have an IPhone and also sure you drive a Tayota or a Nissan

Majority of iphones are sold on 2 years contract.. how about that? are they all rich?Anyways.. i prefer to save few hundred $ by buying flagship driods (more functionality @ less price) rather than be i-Guy and pretend to be rich.

in our country, it is worth P45,000 ($1,100) for the 16GB, It is priced almost the same with a Dell alienware laptop, it is overpriced for a phone that doesnt have a premium design, hardware and software. . Icrap.

Prestige costs more than functionality. Vertu are dumbphones but cost several thousand Galaxies. At least with the iPhone, you've got a beautiful capable and iconic smartphone with great after-sale support and the largest number of certified apps. Yeah, even all our farting apps are of high quality. And who cares about functionality with no practical use? I bet none of you has ever used your phone's NFC. And 400ppi, 720p, 1080p and 5-inxh displays are not necessary for a phone. Even a 55-inch HDTV only has 1080p. And a phone should never have a screen larger than 4.5". Instead of increasing the screen size with every new phone, why not settle for 4.5" and just increase the quality of the display?

Personally, Motorola is the brand i am using. It is more durable then most phones in the market. and has long history of making phone that last and it comes with quality. I don't bother about being a "first class" smartphone user in using iphone.

iphone is tooooooo overrrated!!!!!!!
most parts of iphone comes from other manufacturer such as screen from samsung etc.

iphone is cheap to make, expensive to sell. I keep wondering how on earth can a phone cost so much~~~

Even Nokia cannot catch up but still their phone is still the most trustable brand. Their new windows phone is what i call innovation and good collaboration with Windows.

Iphone just try want to make big money.... period..
