I think most of who want sgs4 are already lost customers for apple, they buy even sgs3 before iPhone.

Looks like Apple might be looking for a new CEO to replace Cook. Just do a Google search for "Apple looking for new CEO".

What do u mean no more innovation.
If the next iphone comes with a micro sd card slot, perhaps live wallpaper, a decent file manager & remove that useless bluetooth restriction then yes that would be true innovation, WHY....
COS IT HAS NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE!
Go apple.

well like most people on this site will say. who cares. i support Samsung. having had a iphone and the restrictions that ios provides. i now own a note 2. and enjoy every minute of the android device. the os is perfect in every way. and unfortunately more people will realise this. lastly if the iphone 5 or 6 had android on it. you would have the perfect phone.

You know they can innovate many things but are they useful for big crowd?

I think the innovations come from somewhere else next time, maybe from smart watches? TV? Or something else.

They have charged heavy amount from their customers and the people who bought that phone can get even a better phone with better specification in lower price with a better build quality and better looks. Thus they have provided a loss to their customers, so they are going towards loss.

Perhaps if Apple had spent less time in the court room and more time developing their new products they would be in a better position.

Best news I've heard this year! Serves them right.

Last quarter 50 millions shipped and this quarter only 25 millions shipped. That a big drop for any company to swallow. I guess ppl have learned now that iphone 5 is not up to the hype. It is not much better than iphone 4s or even iphone 4.
