Apple should continue selling IP5. IP 5c is rather colorful and it is inferior IP5.

The only thing I see keeping Apple alive are those who are already in the ecosystemm. It's just too expensive and hassle if you're switching OS especially with apple. Also don't forget the Fanboys

Last last year's hardware, teeny little 4" screen, walled garden, iTunes, locked-down filesystem, premium prices, soft aluminum body, non-expandable memory, non-removable battery. The only good things about the iPhone 5 is the quality and calibration of the IPS LCD panel.

You can't even put music in the thing without setting up your PC. Buy a Mac? Haha. People justifying being locked in an expensive ecosystem by your expensive hardware is the only reason Apple make super profits. Their markups shouldn't even be legal.But it's an iPhone, and nothing else matters.

It doesn't matter if some say Lagdoid is a superior OS or that the iPhone is not a "smartphone". iphones will always be superior to any other phone because of its superior quality build and sensible OS and reputation for excellence and matter it's deficiencies I'd still buy it because it's still iPhone.

I used the S3 and the 4S (I still have both), and I would have to say that it all comes back to what you want in a smartphone. If you want a fast reliable long lasting battery, then go for the iPhone, if you want the big screen with a more user friendly UI and features, then go for the Android. I would say that both the S3 and the 4S are great devices, but for me I would pick the iPhone for daily use.

If you remember bluetooth has many viruses thats why apple doesnt put it into there ios devices. i have a laggy xperia z and iPhone 5 even if apple has dual core 1.2ghz 1gb ram but even then it is faster than any type of quad core 1.5ghz 2gb ram. even if samsung,lg,sony,htc etc put octa core 2.5ghz cortex a15 5gb ram even then there phones will lag !
