Aluminium is not a "cheap" material.
Especially not compared to plastic.

Aluminum is soft and the cheapest metallic material to use. No wonder it is easily scratched. How can you say it's premium when it uses inferior material? That is why aluminum can be made very thin as in Aluminum Foil because it's a SOFT metal. I would rather have a plastic phone that can take all the abuse than get Disgusted with a phone that bends once you put in the jeans pocket.

There you go.
so funny looking at apple fans so afraid about the company falling down.

"“We are pleased to report record March quarter revenue thanks to continued strong performance of iPhone and iPad,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “Our teams are hard at work on some amazing new hardware, software and services, and we are very excited about the products in our pipeline."
"Apple posts $9.5 billion net profit in Q2 2013: sells 19.5 million iPads, 37.4 million iPhones"
just like I said earlier, another great results from Apple and who is surprised?
ISJ5, 23 Apr 2013nice pretending..but fail! im iphone user and im switch to S4.. what a old comments.. I know plenty of people who have left iPhone for Android lately. It's hardly a troll, when you look at how Android has grown. I've also seen people in the past switch from Android to Apple. Whoopie.
With all that said, Apple is still projected to report more profit than Google and Microsoft combined. Enough said!
"But it appears that between them, analysts have a good idea of how well Apple’s really been doing this quarter. Averages for over 40 analysts predict revenue of $42.59 billion, with earnings of just over $10 per share. They expect Apple to have sold 36.5 million iPhones, 18.3 million iPads, 4.1 million Macs, and 6.25 million iPods."

Luckily they have IMAC, IPAD and IPOD, Samsung, Sony to name a few has these things too.

Shock horror! They could always produce multiple devices to encompass people who have different requirements. Perish though we might actually get a choice!
This is so funny, everytime we read these comments about bad sells etc. And all the haters keep commenting and commenting how apple died and apple is doomed etc. then apple releases the q numbers and these haters are very silent next week etc.
I mean EVERYTIME this same happens, just wait under 5 hour to see :D
Apple meant to had very bad holiday quarter an haters said how iPhone doesnt sell anymore and all thr other crap as usual, yet they sold more than ever.
gillieee, 23 Apr 2013Hi Friend, I am still a fan of Apple, When we are the best, what is wrong in being arrogant. ... moreSo having a phone with inferior actual internal hardware that costs more is OK as long as it is well built? That is the equivalent of saying my car is very built, never mind it can't do more than 50 Km\ hr.
What a shame. I am a big fan of IOS, but not on the phone size itself, they are too tiny for me. Even if the screen size is increased to 4.7" for their upcoming phones, I wont buy it. The phone width had to be 86mm and above, then I will be Iphone's No.1 fan. I was hoping that IPAD Mini will have the phone calling capability but was disappointed it was only for data and I bought GALAXY TAB 7.7 instead since I want long lasting battery life.
The problem with IPHONE (APPLE) is that they only listen to their current user/customer (based on alleged true survey) to stick to smaller product (Iphone) which I know since 2009 will pose a negative profit margin in a long run. They don't listen to their "wannabe" customers. I know most of the iphone fanboys and fangirls here in GSMARENA have said "who needs a bigger phones". It's people like you are the root cause of the diminishing profit margin by giving apple a false phone size requirement by the general public.
Anyways, I am only giving my opinion. This opinion may not be what the fanboys wants to hear. I would really wished that APPLE to go as open source instead of "close source" to be back on top again and I want to few iphones sizes in the near future, let the different customer pick what phone size to buy.
I am still a fan of Apple, When we are the best, what is wrong in being arrogant. Now samsung is trying to Monopolize, its the nature of every company. We here has to see, which out of this is the best in Quality. Can you deny apple in this. Quality comes from inside till the outer screws.
