Well, instead of having "budget phones" like other companies, Apple should have the best phones possible, otherwise they would be like any other company. I would love to see a metal unibody and a proportionate screen to the body, also changing the design. iPhone 4's design when it came out was clean and simple but very good, now this design has gotten very boring and people will stop buying if the same design comes out with the next iPhone.

On a side note, I couldn’t help but notice that Apples new Iphone iteration due for an Autumn release features something very similar to Jolla’s ‘ambience’ function – coincidence, I think not. In IOS7, it appears that by changing the wallpaper on the homescreen, you also change the look and feel of the phone which seems (like the ambience feature in Sailfish) to reflect the colours in your wallpaper image.

A lot of the other features in IOS7 seem to have been heavily influenced by MeeGO, Web OS and many other operating systems. There go Apple again taking from others and calling it their own!

So let’s support the real innovators and help get Jolla up there with the big boys!

You Samsung employees are a joke, HTC and SONY both make better android phones. I think you spent to much time focused on what Apple was doing, but I guess it's better than watching Samsung stock go down.

And guys just keep in mind don't trust the liars and deceivers or else they will control you by the virtue of faith since faith is a control mechanism.
Once you act upon faith you're nothing but a sheep waiting in line for a phony phone.

And talking about things like covers and materials used to make a phone is nothing but a DIVERSION used by marketing trolls in order to divert users attention from things that really matters by constantly talking about things that don't matter.
Don't let yourself fooled by these jerks they are nothing but high skilled charlatans crooks and deceivers.

I'm actually looking forward to the plastic casing iphone, because I don't use phone casings(they increase the thickness), and I can't remember how many times my fingers have been zapped by my iphone 4 metallic basel already..

As an apple fan, i think budget iPhone is the way to go as high end market share is saturated. everyone who wants a Galaxy or iPhone already have one.

But the colors of iPhone Lite is not nice :( should have used the beautiful colors of iPod touch!

Is it just me or does this plastic look toyish?

At least the Galaxy S4's plastic looks mature and premium.

Apple really can't do plastic designs.

The cheaper one looks more durable. So, maybe Apple will name it iPhone Active.
