popye, 11 Sep 2013It's the best tech right now so it's just necessary to bear a premium price tag so only those ... moreno it is not at all, the majority of the phone is recycled from last year, meaning not totally new parts any more, most can be manufactured for way less then they could have 12 months ago, the camera is still from sony, the screen is still from sharp, the memory is still from samsung, and so on, the only real bit of good tech in there is the new A7 chip, but its being held back considerably by that tiny screen, it maybe fine having great looking games but once on screen controls come into effect you lose 25% of screen space even with my large screen phone i still feel like im losing out because of on screen controls, that processor will really look good in the ipad mini and ipad 5 though, the fingerprint reader is old news, its been done on laptops and phones YEARS ago, BUT i do like the way its been implemented into the home button, it certainly is the best LOOKING reader available
x, 11 Sep 2013If anyone is thinking buying this for £710 then it has a serious mental problem.Really? So what can you say about people who spend hundreds of thousands of dollars for Vertu and Gresso phones? There are even people who buy basic, old-fashioned Swiss watches or wardrobes for a million dollars. Are they out of their mind too? Not all people want to drive just a regular Toyota or Kia car especially if they have the means to drive a more expensive Porsche or BMW. Apple is the Rolls Royce of smartphones.
It's the best tech right now so it's just necessary to bear a premium price tag so only those worthy will get their hands on this marvel.
