Apple know very well when to bring new product. Without any big changes with little overhauling on last years product if they can earn profit for next year or so. Then they will try to keep pushing this strategy as they dont want big size bla bla and they will bring big next year sayng variety of the products.
Fingerprint is nothing new and not much useful as they know but advertizing as security will bring more importance so they will push like that ghey know without doubt people will buy it. As profit margin will increase as most of the parts are as old even body making machines only changed coulours and bring the fresh look.
I think i phone 4s best phone ever they could make and will never again will make.
I am sure they have i phone 6 design ready but why they will bring that if they can still cash money old stuff already produced.
Well think apple.

So are you saying why should any one buy a Galaxy, WP, Xperia or iPhones if they can buy a cheap shit Chinese knock off for 3rd of the price?

I will answer your question, its because Apple supports their devices with updates for a minimum of 3 years.
Its because Apple has an awesome eco system that ties in with everything seamlessly.
I barely spent $100 in 5 years on iTunes yet i get the advantage of using cloud backups that allow me to easily migrate to another i device.
Use Photostream that works across windows and apple devices

Do you think Samsung's useless features is innovation?

Show me a company that innovates every year in any industry

Event Sony's new Z1 is pretty much the same as the first Z, so is Sony shit as well?

Just because Lexus has more luxury then a similar Mercedes and costs cheaper does not mean that everyone is an idiot for buying a Mercedes right?

i was going to say similar stuff.

Car manufacturers update their models every 3 to 5 years and German manufactures do it every 7 years such as Porsche.

in between they are simple incrementals such as face lift and little tweaks.

yet people complain that iphone only changes design every 2 years LOL

No one cares about the specifications, people care about usability and in that iPhone wins in every aspect

i had GS4 and it was shit, i couldn't operate it with one hand and it did not feel secure in my hand due its massive size.
i went back to iPhone because Samsung cant build phones for crap.
I listen to music every day and when i tried using my headphones on GS4, they sounded as if speakers were blown why? well apparently Samsung saved on built in amp and it cant handle high quality ear phones.
Called up Samsung and they said if you are not using Samsung headphones, we cant help you, WTF?
However outdated Apple hardware runs them perfectly with extreme clarity

I do not have much interest on Iphone. Have use the product before, too many restrictions and specs not according to users feedback. I prefer to use other brands such as Samsung, HTC and Sony. They understand and cater to the needs of customers.
