Unacceptable inefficiency to do things that way, its so laughable and sad that they still didnt improve in this most serious shortcoming of theirs.

And WP8 is not smooth to use, its slow and annoying, you are mistaking smooth animations for performance, thats very far from the real life. With WP8 you wait and wait while being "entertained" by smooth and painfully slow animations, very inefficient workflow. iPhone use some of the same illusion, just not in a so annoying way.

It's perfectly fine. I have a Galaxy S at work and if I compare iTunes to Samsung Kies, I honestly don't know why people whinge so much about iTunes.
I can easily sync my songs and videos, and backing up and restoring my phone is SO simple. If I upgrade my iPhone I just restore my backup onto the brand new phone and everything's restored as it was before - messages, email, apps, etc.

I dont like iPhones but im impressed with this fingerprint thing, just too bad its mounted on such a poor small phone that need its diapers, also known as iTunes.

I think this is a rather subjective matter though. Overall the performance and general behaviour of iOS is very slick and smooth, very much like Windows Phone.

The Apple ecosystem is made to squeeze money out of users, and they are very successful in doing just that. Samsung otoh doesnt make any money from any ecosystem and their average handset profit is much lower.
India is one of the countries where iPhone has a very low marketshare, extremely low, and still they managed to run away with 14% of the total smartphone market profit in India.

It's the implementation that differs. With other devices, you slide your finger across the sensor, which is located in weird places.
With Apple it is built into the home button, which is easier by simply touching the scanner, and located in a highly LOGICAL place, making the customer journey much better than any other implementation.
That's why Apple are good at what they do - they do things right. Just wait, Samsung & Co. will soon start doing the same thing...

What's wrong with future proofing your hardware, or expanding it for better games and apps? If HTC or any other Android device would make use of a 64 bit processor you guys would equally gloat about that.
Stop being such a child and give credit where it's due.
"Progress Is A Beautiful Thing"
Are you kidding? Putting a fingerprint sensor on the same old design and adding 1 new color is progress?
Oh, and fanboys, why does the iphone 5s need 64 bit architecture? It's because of the lag, right? Why does it need a faster processor? It's because of the lag, right?
Now you see how silly the comments you make about other manufactures look when they come out with more powerful phones.
Progress? Go eat mud - LOL

And on your joke Apple is the most profit making company, it used to be before two years, since last two years Samsung replaced apple in terms of revenue and profit, however I dont have samsung product other than LED TV. (Many people like me leaving or planning to leave Apple)

Wheres Droid Ghost these days? I expected to see him post about the next Moto X featuring a 65 bit processor, or some of his usual insane stuff.
Most Iphones i've seen are already more than 64bit or rather the screen is in more than 64bits after dropping it.
To think how 99.99% of companies have wasted million in R&D when all they needed to do was change the colour of their product.
