But still better than lot of Android high end or med end phones with 720p screen it's even better than 1080p except htc one, even though S4 Super Amoled 1080p it's an excellent display but still not as sharp as Retina display on Iphone 5.

after begins era of Cook - i has bad feeling about this

i say in 2011 apple can survive 2 years than start falling

i was biggest fan of apple, but after iphone 5 release it was huge dissapoitment for me

everyone see the market, and as nokia dont saw it in 2007 - thes start falling
now apple - marketing and ridiculous - why people want or buy iphone on their page-

galaxy S3 - have stupid graphics and display ppi - but other aspects of phone are brilliant
iphone 5 - have just design and ios - as tradition, but from softvere ios - nothing new
the same phone like 4S for me
if apple continue to ... people with S versions of iphone they will die
- if they dont increase display - they will die - bec of market not bec of my wish
- if they froze inovations they will die


---- and this year show us why dont buy apple
i has 3G, 4 and now iphone 4S but if i think about next phone im not sure about overpriced iphone 5S or Galaxy s4 with tons of sowtware innovations

well, it sounds so unfortunate.. i have read a few comments regards on the apple's product which is ridiculously expensive.. bluetooth and other stuffs are limited as well.. i think they should focus on what people want and what people need.. not just focusing on what steve jobs started.. in order for the apple to get rid of those headaches, they might need steve jobs to come back to life.. which is pretty impossible..

it's called business. every product has its own ups and downs. even though each smart phone has a lot of features, what matters is if customer can and know how to use it! they all come up of buying smartphones and due to un-userfriendliness, it comes up as crap

First: Don't trust analysts. They're the same genius wizards that never saw the economic crisis coming.

Second: Jobs was right to limit Apple's merchandise to high-end products only. No iPad minis, no cheap iPhones. A cheap iPhone is gonna be what the Porsche 928 was to the 911 - a laughing stock of a car, never to be repeated in history of auto production.

Now apple is screwed. As apple still remains to be stubborn and keeps to produce mobile phones at a ridiculous price. People will just go for android esp Samsung. Well Steve jobs did the right thing by satisfying the customers. Whereas Tim cook keeps concentrating on design and cost only. Tim cook should be removed from CEO of apple and Samsung profit will grow for sure for another 5 years.

it's not rocket science...the strength of apple is in good marketing and product placement,once they implement "the changes that people want" they will become "just another phone maker among others"
