After owning every iPhone and being disappointed when the 4S was announced and still buying it because my purchases were locked to iTunes, I thought the next thing will blow my mind but if you look at the specifications, these were features that should have been in the iPhone 4. The reality is, don't take my word for it, this phone will be Apples demise and it's unfortunate. Every one can comment about trying "android but then moving to iphone" or "iphone but then moving to android" and you won't know if it's true or not. I have in total £60 worth of purchases on iTunes. Android has 70% of market share, while Apple has less than 17% (August figures). 70% of the world can't be making bad decisions right? Brand loyalty cost me hefty. People who had iPhone 4 never bought iPhone 4S. The only people who bought iPhone 4s were people who had 3GS or people who never had an iPhone and you can ask anyone. The only people who want an iPhone are because they feel socially excluded if they don't have one. But the market share figures will tell you that it's cool to have an Android, not iPhone. I know that shouldn't affect whether you buy a phone, I just thought I'd point that out. In my opinion, Apple have been using all these gimmicks to dress up things in fancy words. iPhone 5 has the same evolution as the iPhone 4S did compared to iPhone 4. What did Apple followers say? The one after 4S will blow your mind. Now the 5 is announced, they say no no the NEXT iPhone will blow your mind. What really offended me was the profit margins. It's not a premium phone... you're only paying a premium. These phones cost around 140$ to make and Apple sell them for around 800$. Work out how much profit they're making. People keep using this term that iOS is "polished". I've been a LONG TERM user of iPhone and while at first it was, this line of thinking was eliminated with Androids ICS and the only ones who still deny/argue it are the ones who've never owned one. I've never owned one but I have tried it and I'm missing out on so many things. The battery life on the S2 and S3 is phenomenal. Me and my girlfriend went on a honeymoon together. She has way more friends than me and was texting and calling all day (she had the S2 and S3 with her) while my 4S only lasted 4 hours. Ask ANYONE with an iPhone. Some might say "because of apps". Well funny I should mention this. The average iPhone user has 50 apps while Android users have over 80. iPhones push system is more efficient than Androids but the way the iOS system is built, it kills the whole battery. Apple, rather than innovating or fine tuning their OS for battery efficiency, they claim that "battery technology hasn't improved". Yes that's true, but every other company make their applications and hardware make more EFFICIENT use of the battery, whereas Apple force the hardware requirements to spiral. Some will say that the iOS 6 can be installed on all previous generation iPhones. Windows XP can be installed on my 3.1 machine. But will it run though? Look on YouTube for people who updated their iPhone 3GS< to iOS6 and rendered their phone useless. I'm only mentioning this all because it's important to know that you will only get lies from Apple and empty promises. They don't care about the consumer, only profits. Whereas other manufacturers care about balancing profits with giving the user what they want. Hence why we wanted faster phones, we got quad core while Apple decided to put dual core. What the f? Anyway take this as my opinion of course, but the market share percentages are accurate, please Google them to verify. Sorry about the randomness, this box is very tiny. Hope I haven't made anyone fall asleep. Take care.
Unfortunately Mobile failed too after all this time there is no memory card does not receive any Bluetooth device camera disappointing and there is no Java failed too
Not a Samsung or apple fan but as Samsung already said they will sue apple if iphpne5 comes with LTE functionality. Therefore get ready to see some trouble apple. Hope you loose this time.
This is a joke.
It's just like my 4s
Did apple think a slightly bigger screen size would fool people?
The only real interesting thing is the lowered price! Not much of a phone. the battery seems didn't change much, so i expect battery life is gonna be bad. Hope I'm wrong.
It now makes sense why apple was suing everyone else.
They've obviously run out of ideas, the iPhone 5 clearly is a testament to this.
Empires come and go ... bye bye apple!
rst, 12 Sep 2012Am I right in saying that Nokia lumia 920 kicks the iPhone 5's back side?... Nokia lumia 920 i... moreAfter i saw the iPhone 5 specs, i thought the same thing you said, and im going to wait for the nokia lumia, also i love the xbox live option of it.
Very disappointing , i waited for this phone to be released very long and what i see in the end, really crap.
Lol right on cue just as predicted, all the Samsung sheep and haters flooding the comment section and downvoting too hahaha. When will you guys learn:
1. The voting really affects nothing but your egos
2. No matter how much you rant, people are still going to the stores, test it, and find out its great (for them) and buy it.
This cycle already happened with the iPhone 4S which was identical in design to iPhone 4, yet resulted in record sales. What do you think will happen with this phone with actual larger screen, huge performance increase and new design?
Lastly, if you don't like it please don't buy it. Also after you have not bought it and pretend to hate it so much, please don't spend the rest of the year here because you can't stand it so much lol. So much stalking can only be described as secret love, not hate hahaha.
