i'm a huge apple fan , i got the macbook, ipad , and previous 4s user and recently i switched. i was waiting for the iphone 5 to released back couple of month ago and finally when it released i was hoping it didn't . all the excitement were totally gone and it just really look like either a rush product or they just don't have any new ideas. when i went to my local phone shop they have a iphone 5 on display and i was amaze no one want to look at it , there isnt anyone playing with it. i guess there is nothing much to fiddle with as is pretty much the same to the previous and the previous ,previous .........after seen my gf galaxy note and some new androids on the market it just make the look iphone really outdated. so i've switched to galaxy note 2 and enjoyed every feature that is missing on the iPhone . oh yeah one warning :using the iphone for to long makes you dumb, as there is a amount of learning curve when you switched to new upmarket device . there is just too much feature on other devices.
Apple stock BEFORE iPhone 5 release= $709 per share
Apple stock AFTER iPhone 5 release = $609 per share
The END is near...
Anonymous, 20 Oct 2012That's pathetic because almost all those features you mentioned are already present in Android... moreClearly,apple are a company who's supposed to be called 'chicken' cause they afraid of what other company can do that they can't..,so that's why they sue samsung and patented for the face unlock..c'mon..be real apple fanboys
iSJ5, 21 Oct 2012thats only a false info so dont worry, apple will not fall because we still buy their product!Remember Nokia, Microsoft, RIM? They were all the top companies during their time and now all of them had fallen victim to changing market trend. Soon Apple will join them because too many people are already sick of the litigations that Apple had been throwing to every tech company plus the restrictions of the Apple ecosystem.
iSJ5, 21 Oct 2012thats only a false info so dont worry, apple will not fall because we still buy their product!Don't be so confident because Apple really are ripe for a fall.
Because Apple almost totally relies on iPhone and history has shown that tastes can quickly change, and while they doing well now who knows what's gonna happen in the near future, because Apple could just sue the wrong person and seriously affect their reputation or other manufacturers team up against Apple and not let them use any of the features that they patented which makes iPhones even more basic.
I mean there's any amount of huge companies that took a sudden fall for any amount of reasons and since Apple has all their Eggs in 1 basket they have nothing to fall back on like Samsung has.

This is just the beginning of the FALL OF APPLE.
iphone 6, 20 Oct 2012Next year On September,Iphone 5s or 6 going to out.
The spec as below:
-Super Retina Display... moreApple don't need to make an announcement to know what the 5S will have on it, because again it will be an identical phone using the same processor maybe 20% overclocked, possibly a 12mp camera with burst mode like S3 has and probably have NFC and probably take some popular App from the App Store and include it in IOS like they did with Siri.
I mean this is just how Apple works by giving as little new features as possible each year so each new phone looks like it has something new on it.
And the average Apple customer knows F all about advancements in the Tech world so even though things have been around for years they think it's new and think Apple created everything.
iphone 6, 20 Oct 2012Next year On September,Iphone 5s or 6 going to out. The spec as below: -Super Retina Display... moreThat's pathetic because almost all those features you mentioned are already present in Android for quite a while now. So Apple just keep catching up whatever features that comes out with Android so as not to be left out in the smartphone race. Remember the notification bar that Apple had copied? The face unlock that they claimed as theirs then applied for patent?
Anonymous, 20 Oct 2012Richness or cheapness is not just bout money always... The pathetic mentality of sufficing for... moreWhatever you say boomerangs back to you because it is Apple that's the master of being CHEAP! Imagine setting up a factory in China where labor is CHEAP and that it also uses CHEAP materials that easily scratches and dents, screen that easily break, expensive but laggy and crashy apps, inferior camera with purple haze.
GrammaticasT, 20 Oct 2012A 64gb iPhone 5 costs an arm and a leg if not the earth. 32 gb micro sd card costs £13.... moreThat's how Apple got rich by overpricing their products ridiculously just for similar upgrade.
I dont have this phone but i own one of the best iphone and I say it is amazing . I know many haters in this forum will disagree with me. But let me ask you this. What are you doing here if don't like this phone? Are you trying to convince people that already bought this phone and hate it as much as you do? Or are you just plain and simply bashing out this phone and hold up high your own phone? People who bought this, love this and use this as a communication tool. Remember, the basic function of the phone is to stay connected. Games and apps are only secondary or do not count much. I take care of things I own cause I want them to last. So, whatever phone you own, the most important thing is that your are connected to the people you value in your life!
Anonymous, 20 Oct 2012Take your own advice my dear... Beast??? Ya its ugly that's for sure... Your beast with double... moreSo you don't have anything better to do rather than catching up to phrases, seriously,, you ip5 user r just so overwhelmingly stubborn,, I which aspect do you think that android applications r worst? As far as I know android offers a total independence when it comes to utilize and customize the entire os,, you know, its a real shame that you guys r so preoccupied by the apple logo that you all even buy a piece of rock paying 900$ just because it has a apple logo on it.
[deleted post]Yes,I'm totally agree with u,100%..by the way,why do u change ur note for?
iphone 6, 20 Oct 2012Next year On September,Iphone 5s or 6 going to out. The spec as below: -Super Retina Display... moreWhat?4.1' screen?8 mp shooter..that's maybe the top spec if were in 2011..clearly.,apple has no sense of what they're doing..c'mon apple,just leave mobile world and continue with ur mac
just been over a week since im using the iPhone 5 and im disgusted of it. earlier i was using the Note. i regret having changed it for this. it aint a phone for power users atall. one can barely multi task anything and the battery life sucks. i am an executive with a field job and dont always have a power point handy... barely in a few hours of usage my iphone shows low battery.
I feel android was much more flexible than iOS.
iOS in comparison feels very restrictive. I dont understand for what did i pay the cost of an Iphone5 for? the screen is smaller the battery life is bad and it cannot multitask efficiently. also for most apps i need to pay and buy. not to forget many features like FM radio NFC etc arnt available in it.
Feel like an utter fool having spent somuch and gotten so less.
The user interface feels good enough only for dummies. there arnt many detailed customization options like on an android device. I agree the iOS is smoother and quicker but then it also does far lesser work and has far lesser options to give the user. its perfect for ladies and rich dummies who want to feel expensive and operate brainlessly whatevers thrown at them and feel its d worlds best wearing horse blinkers. not tech wizards.
