Anonymous, 20 Sep 2013and while you do that, the more sensible among us won't waste money on extras and simply upgrade.You do realize that there are a lot of people worldwide (most people, I'd guess) that actually have a life outside phones, and instead of buying overpriced phones every year, would rather keep the same phone for 2-3 years and, yes, buy a battery if needed... Even if most people I know that own Droid phones use the same battery for, yes, 2-3 years...
So, it's not being "sensible" buying a new phone every year, paying more than it's worth... It's a) now knowing where to spend your money; b) buying a phone for status; c) all of the above...

You are happy to wait for the same phone that will be in plenty supply in 10 days..I cant even believe they have low stock it was a marketing ploy to get folk to wait in line.
EskeRahn, 20 Sep 2013All the hype made me think a bit about significantly different alternatives... Have a look ... moreAbsolute brilliant link I love these type of phones..I await the day we return to proper mobile phones with clamshell design,real buttons with 2013 spe.
People don't really care about their families' future by risking their savings.

Ever heard of a band called Hypocrisy? Sure you did. You are a great fan of them. Guess what! Not everyone is a fan of Hypocrisy, like you. Some are just full genuine hate. :))
Can wait for even whole night in a queue for getting iPhone 5s. Apple rocks...

Most people are gonna sign a 2 year contract anyway so its actually p... moreNo way is that true in UK they can charge the same as other phones on contract but what they do is actually make you pay upfront as well..Lets say Samsung S4 is free for 35GBP on 24 month contract,you can get iphone for the same 35GBP contract but have to pay 240GBP upfront.In fact the iphone is the only phone in NORMAL price contracts that often has to have you pay extra upfront.O2 in UK was first stupid operator to stock iphone 1 as an exclusive but this year its not even stocking it and only selling it online now hows that for turn around.
Have you seen how greedy apple are getting even more greedy by the article on gsmarena blog about BLOCKING third party cables in ios7 ,,so you then have to buy apple multi mega inflated priced cable..If they had used USB like every other smartfone on this planet complied too we wsould be ok..Apple got round this by SELLING us a USB adaptor..This company would steal the glass eye off a blind man.
I'm indifferent but honestly, who really cares about all this craziness. This might be a nice unit, yeah, truth is, there are some really terrific, highly attractive phones out there with genuinely better specs and battery life. As for this hype and hysteria. In the big scheme of things, it’s a little bit sad really. Just sayin

Most people are gonna sign a 2 year contract anyway so its actually pretty cheap. The real reason people dislike iPhone is simply because its too restrictive, and doesn't have much innovation since iPhone 4. Its lacking the 'wow' factor since then too. I used to have 3GS, in case you're wondering. But after that I switched to Android, and never ever looked back since. Based on true story
