IBM Simon, Neonoide n1m & Lg Prada..
Google them and you wil know what iphone is made of..
Same old design and that familiar o.s.. yuck!!
No expandable memory, no bluetooth sharing with other devices,download only from itunes.. "unsmartphone"
Pixel density which iphone "used to" boast of, has already been beaten by HTC , Lg & Sony..
Bring a common man and show him all iphones generation wise.. he will surely mistake 3gs as 4s or 4 as 4s..
If apple is the real innovator, why use Samsung's chip, Sony's lens etc etc??
Why are you paying for Facetime??
Why you were told to post on your site that Samsung didn't copy you??
Why
Google maps for apple crossed billions of downloads the day it was launched whereas ios maps was a disaster??

Nok n95 can cut and paste.... 1st gen iPhone cannot do this simple task. Nok n95 can send MMS..... 1st gen iphone cannot send MMS......... wallpaper, ringtones, bluetooth fileshare and many simple tasks to mention.

After many gen iphones and updates, customer can finally send MMS, cut & paste, record video and so on.

Just imagine LG, motorola, nokia, samsung or any other company without the fruit logo designed this product........ the outcome would of been completely different.

1st gen iphone sold like hot cakes bcos of the fruit logo. Simple as that.....

Grow up apple.... You have copied from others and yet you have the nerve to sue. Stop the nonsense patent BS and start innovating like a proper tect company.

Sigh..........

Ohh it has a 3G with what you can brows web site
Ohh you can play games with it
Ohh you can record videos with it
Ohh you can listen music and radio with it
Ohh you can read email with it
Ohh btw you even can record audio with it and use it as dictaphone
ok it does not have touch screen
and dont say anything about IOS system cause it's only on apple products and you cant get one from other products so you cant count it in as one thing that it have
same thing with app store
i really dont know what is facetime so i cant really say anything about it

and app store is basically same as google store or any other version of some other store that sells apps it's only a name of a page

and thats from the year 2006 where as nokia earlier phones like from 2005 5140i had cam on it to and color screen that did most of the things for you to

and please dont say anything about quality of the fabric if all are mass production

if apple iphone 64GB cost 899 euro and samsung s3 16GB cost 469 euro (32GB microsd cost 20 euro) then explain me why is iphone better ? does the aluminium and glass cost 430 euro to make ???

explain me why is it smart to pay 430 euro more for a phone that does same things ???
iphone 8GB is 699 euro and16GB is 799 euro ... where as 32GB to add with microSD card to samsung cost only 20 euro

make me understand the point please !!!
you need itunes accaunt to activate iphone
every move you make cost you on a iphone

everything you need on android is basically for free
lots of android apps are for free

you want to be different so you pay extra 430 euro for a phone is totally stupid

Apple corp and customers are all hypocrites

Q1.Did apple really invented or released the first ever rectangler smartphone?
A1: Palm did, in 2001

Q2.Does iOS homescreen look kinda like Nokia's symbian s60 but with more icons?
A2: Steve Jobs did admit he was very inspired by nokia,he was so inspired millions of iphone users get to see it everyday. (boring icons, look kinda like symbian s60 doesnt it)

Q3.Did apple released the first ever app store?
A3: First ever application down feature was invented by Linux in 2002

So..... why didn't google, nokia, linux and many more companies file a infringement lawsuit against apple?

Because...... they spend more time in the lab researching, developing and innovating more products. Not in an office looking for pathetic patents and sue your biggest rivalry in the court room.

Why target samsung?.... You got it, they are apple's biggest rivalry

If you have the cheek to use other peoples ideas and made it better (or not in some cases), do not claim is yours.

Steve Jobs quote in 1990 : "Picasso had a saying, he said: 'Good artists copy, great artists steal'. We have, you know, always, ah, been shameless about stealing great ideas."

Facetime (2003 videochat tech with 3G at launch), Android notification bar, DO NOT DISTURB from google's voice which is also called DO NOT DISTURB and so on...... lots more.

This is the most laughable argument regarding plastic casing..... +90% of iphone users covered there phone with a plastic case (most bought from cheap internet sites and cheap market stores) because aluminum is scratch prone and 4&4S glass back is smash prone. Most iphones are wrapped round with cheaper plastic... hmmmmmm

Peace from a tech lover

Coming from HTC HD2, I tried Samsung Galaxy Note, Samsung Galaxy SIII, and I ended up selling both in favor of an Apple iPhone 4S. The iPhone 4S is much more professional, more sensitive to the touch, more ergonomic, but more complicated to be considered the only negative point. After the launch of the HTC One, I am thinking about buying one, or opting back to HTC.

a good thing that could come from this is if samsung just scraps "touchwiz" all together and goes completely stock. I'd love that too

Personally, I think most Samsung products in general feel cheap to the touch. I'm not surprised at all how many people have shattered theirs from short drops.
Unless you're gung ho about Samsung, I'd recommend a different brand.

I dropped mine just 2 1/2 feet the (day after I bought it) while on my way to get a bumper case. Screen cracked all to hell. How ironic.

The bezel is too thin and weak.
