With $349( + tax + shiping) we get a Nexus 4. Without a premium feel, I doubt that, it will no longer be an intelligent decision to buy this cheap( looking)iPhone.
kind of expensive for a cheap looking phone with plastic wrapped around all over. Very toy-ish look. Plastic is ok, but there could be a better implementation of it and better matching of color scheme if they really want a colorful variant available.
I've always believed that Apple would be better off taking the hit and ditching its 3 year iPhone sales cycle.
Just offer the iPhone (4.3" screen) and the iPhone mini (4" screen, plastic case). Just like iPad and iPad Mini.
Should keep the sammy fans happy. Apple copying the plastic of Galaxy. I think this could be a good move, well done chaps.
Wait... so you mean Samnsung and the other Korean company have created something new? I mean besides cheap phones sold as good phones? lol
If Samsung is selling more is becase they're phones are always given away for FREE.
Remember... Samsung makes the phone thats it... so when you say... Samsung would "beat" apple... you actually mean.... Android = Google. Which Samsung does not do anything for or is part of...
The day Samsung creates their own OS then lets talk about Samsung "beating" apple. Meanwhile is just another company selling cheap phones at high prices with an OS NOT made by Samsung.
Remember as well... iphone5 has been sold more than the galaxy 4....
People are buying the galaxy 2 more than any other galaxy phone... reason "its cheaper"....
What's happening to their design? Are they in partnership with lock & lock or Tupperware?
Anonymous, 09 Jul 2013I cannot imagine bigger apple fan than me. I have every possible apple gadget that exists in ... moreBut what else can they do every bloody phone is a boring monotonous miserable slab with NO DESIGN.Apple runs fast enough on dual core so no need for more power,the only thing they can upgrade is battery and camera with proper shutter button like Nokia N-Series...They really want to keep things phone sized which i agree with these Androids are even bigger hideous boring slabs..So what else can Apple do they wont open up bluetooth or give file system the smartfone is boring now after years of me been mobile obssessive.
Only when things go full circle and they return to sliders and clamshells with proper buttons and precision D-PAD will things change again...How the hell can people game with silly tapping at a touchscreen with no precision is beyond me..I hate todays smartfone their boring everytime GSMA announce a new phone its just another boring slab.
Apple will produce a plastic phone and advertise it as a revolutionary product then sue Nokia and Samsung for producing plastic phones before they did
haha! backward to first ipod nano era. They have nothing new. An innovative company could not keep pace with the competition. In few years Samsung and Sony will eat Apple.
Vega Sirius, 09 Jul 2013looks like apple invented a new material called "plastic" !They will sue all the other OEMs for using it! They invented it back in 1779! HaHaHa Apple!
Anonymous, 09 Jul 2013funny... this news is not even from apple but fandroids are in full battle mode again! afraid ... more"funny... this news is not even from apple but fandroids are in full battle mode again! afraid of iphone?"
Well what else you expected :D of course they are very afraid that this phone going to beat the hell out of those cheap android phones, because that what this is for sure going to do.
Its going to be most sold smartphone ever and android oems just looking from side how their marketshares going down after this comes.
If it comes this fall, i think the numbers for this year going to be like 80 million only for budget iPhone.
Shutup, 09 Jul 2013Take a look at the original galaxy s it is also a bit heavier then iPhone 5 and it uses plasticYou are comparing Samsung's three years old phone with the current flagship from Apple? You are pathetic!
