apple offers the same phone under a new name iPhone 5S. The "S" stands for "same" or "sucks". Well done Apple, I'm sure Samsung and LG are celebrating their roadmap righ now! :))

The iPhone (or any other phone) is *not* cheaper on a contract! You pay less up front but you pa y a monthly fee afterwards and, really, you'll have paid the full price if not more at the end of those 2 years.

evolutionary at its best
nobody complaint about porshe having the same design for 40 years, and people pay hundreds of thousand for it

this is the different between the whinning poor and the afforded rich
poor look at raw spec,rich look at the tasteful stuff,they don't like a big phablet make them look erect all the time in their versace slack
