But Apple uses all these vague little patents to attack their competition and slow down the evolution of tech.
And yeah it is good in one way because it forces people to come up with completely different ideas but it's bad for customers if they don't want to share those ideas and that will seriously slow advancements down, and Apple really is most to blame for future phones not being as good as they could be.
To those looking for a case for iPhone 5, check out the Lunatik TakTik.
One gorgeous case and will transform your iPhone into a tank! A bit pricey though.
AnonD-56991, 08 Oct 2012That monolithic level of patent trolling is exactly why Apple is killing off future innovation... moreAlso just to be clear, most in the industry know Samsung to be a clone manufacturer, from the Sony Ericsson copies and even Motorola Razr like models, to Blackberry styled, until they saw iPhone and suddenly all became huge touchscreen phones. The fact is LG is now suing Samsung as well just that it's not reported.
They learnt their lesson tho during the lawsuit, and produced the SGS3. Not hat they couldn't do it before, but they were just lazy. So, in a way, sometimes lawsuits can produce innovation.
AnonD-56991, 08 Oct 2012That monolithic level of patent trolling is exactly why Apple is killing off future innovation... moreYup I agree, however it is NOT just Apple who are stocking on patents, it is EVERYBODY. Unfortunately, the patent system is broken, and everybody is forced to protect themselves. Even if you didn't sue anybody, you would still have to protect yourself to PREVENT from being sued,
Apple going after Android however, is quite straightforward, Eric Schmidt was on the board, he saw IOS, Android for phones suddenly magically transformed from Blackberry clone to iOS clone. Steve blocked Eric from iPad, and Android suddenly magically slow on tablets unlike in smartphone case, the industry already has silently acknowledged this, just that they needed a counter to iOS so most kept quiet.
Now that WP8 is gaining strength, more people are talking frankly about it.
Anonymous, 08 Oct 2012Interesting article on why Apple beefed up its patent portfolio. http://arstechnica.com/app... moreThat monolithic level of patent trolling is exactly why Apple is killing off future innovation, because they've become so powerful if anyone wants to innovate or just have the next logical step in phone tech Apple will try to block it if gives anyone a financial advantage over them, and Apple doesn't really innovate anymore so you can't just sit and wait for them.
Even long time Android champions are getting fed up with Android's unsolvable problems.
This writer was a strong Android campaigner and ALWAYS recommended Android above iOS, yet got fed up and changed to iOS. Why? Due to Android's unsolvable problems.
[deleted post]Can you even read? I didn't write that, that's why I wrote I the top line "From the article". Starting to find an illiteracy problem amongst Android users lol.
[deleted post]It's important to note that other phones have serious issues but they don't get covered by he media. Just as you haters say, don't be a sheep lol.
SGS3, instead of scuffs, actually crack for no reason at all, and Android Authority reported this. At least iPhone owners are informed of possible flaws, Android owners have no due and discover when it's too late. Just check SGS3 page and every comment page has a complaint by SGS3 owners.
Funny how this is not true on the iPhone page, all we hear are complaints by non-owners hating on Apple lol.
nice phone but wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy to expensive not worth it
Interesting article on why Apple beefed up its patent portfolio.
Turns out Creative filed for a patent and the moment it was granted, they immediately sued Apple for 100 million and won. Apple then realized it was important to patent their inventions or approach to design. By the way, Creative sued them on keeping songs, in a list!
[deleted post]Because, like what the bird says, it's CHEAP! CHEAP! CHEAP!
AnonD-27473, 08 Oct 2012Why did you say that,bro? iPhone 5 has a great resolution on its retina display!!! Although ... moreAre we getting any update to fix this prob..... I mean the screen doesn't fit for hd games.......

Cracked my screen already just from the table. its not very sturdy at all.. Apple﻿ store said will﻿ cost £170 to fix :(
Xml, 08 Oct 2012 Worse part is playing hd games on iphone 5Why did you say that,bro?
iPhone 5 has a great resolution on its retina display!!!
Although the games screen is not fit the 4.0 screen, but it's not a problem.
Still a great phone than the others.
From the article:
"Now, almost a month later, itís time for me to get something off my chest: Iíve made a huge mistake. Iíve had the iPhone 5 for about a week and a half, and Iím still annoyed about the dock connector thing. But itís a small problem, and in retrospect I was wrong to allow myself to become overwhelmed by dock-based frustration.
Thatís because, in all other ways, the iPhone 5 is the best phone ever to grace the earth. It beats every single rival on just about every metric you can think of, including speed, battery life, and especially beauty and workmanship."
After the media hype has died down, Slate's reviewer changes his mind, says that iPhone 5 is a marvel and the greatest phone ever made
