fnanfne, 12 Sep 2013Sending files to-and-fro using bluetooth was a novelty that quickly wore off when I still used... moreYou must have been living under a rock because I see people all the time sending photos, videos and apps over bluetooth, and if iPhone could do that a lot of them would be doing it too, But all you doing is the typical iPhone owner thing of defending what it can't do by saying it's pointless up until your leaders at Apple say you need the features and you'll roll over and agree.
jayesh pipada, 12 Sep 2013It is said that it has a 12 mp camera.what about that??Where does it say that it has a 12MP camera?? unless gsmarena is lying to us.
FarshadPersian, 12 Sep 2013Apple doesnt like to go with the "Spec" game hence why as a lot of people have menti... moreOh gosh, no wonder why many ppl mock the Apple fan as a "brainwashed shxxp". After reading so many ppl's comments, you still don't get the point on why there are so many ppl complaining a lot on the Apple products??!
The iPhone 5s or even the 5c cost more than almost every latest Android flagship currently. While at the same time, every latest Android flagship came with much much more powerful spec technically. Compare to iPhone 5s, the spec is even lower than a mid-range Android Phone like Xperia SP, GS3 mini and etc.
Yes, you may say "I don't need that high spec" and "I hate big screen". So? Do Android OEMs only produce big screen phone? There are plenty of 4" Android Phone with better spec and lot more cheaper price available in the market like Xperia L.
Further more, IOS is far far behind from Android in term of features, No Card Slot, No EDR in Bluetooth, No Pen drive support/ USB OTG, No HDMI/MHL/DLNA/Slimport, No NFC, No File management, No customization, No PC Sync and many many more.
If you say :
"I don't need them at all"
(No one forcing you to use it, can't you just take it as an extra stuff?) ,
"I hate lag and app crash"
(Seriously, just some occasional lag/app crash like what you experience in Window PC, especially in high-end phone, rarely happen),
"I hate malware"
(Do you think IOS is immune to malware? Tot Android is more vulnerable in statistic, but so far none of my friends/family using Android encounter malware problem ),
"I hate no update"
(If you love update, you may get a Nexus, but as long the phone works properly I don't care much about update anyway),
"I hate customize, it makes me confuse and looks complicated"
(If you don't like it, simply don't, like Any PC OS, they allow you to customize many things like wallpaper, taskbar, desktop shortcut and etc. If you don't like it, NO ONE FORCE YOU TO DO THAT, just use the default one, simple as that),
"I love IOS UI, it is beautiful"
(With the power of customization in Android, you can even customize an Android UI looks almost as same as IOS UI but you still able to enjoy any Android features that is not available in IOS),
"App store has more apps"
(Most essential/key apps are available in Android even in WP, and many pay app in Apple store are free in Android and WP),
If all above still can't convince you to use Android, why don't use WP instead? Most of the features above are not available in WP as well (since you "don't need them"), it is smoother than Android, you are able to find a 4" WP phone now (like Lumia 520), it also get more frequent update than Android and thus safer from malware attack, some even support SDcard/NFC/wireless charging/better camera and etc, but WP phone cost far far lesser than iPhone like Lumia 720/520 (I don't use 925 or 1020 since you are satisfied with iPhone 5s spec).
So the MAIN POINT of why so many not satisfied with what Apple offers in iPhone 5s/5c simply because with this low-end spec + so limited OS cost with this hell high price tag is really ridiculous, unreasonable, unacceptable, unworthy, and too overpriced. so do you still insist to pay LOT MORE to GET MUCH MUCH LESSER? Does it still make sense to get an iPhone?
Though many Android/WP phone doesn't looks as premium as iPhone does, but will you willing to pay 3/400++USD just for the look and you still get far far lesser stuff? If yes then I'm speechless....
dheerajmehta, 12 Sep 2013modern android phones have bluetooth 4.0...even iphone 5 has bluetooth 4.0 but its of no use s... moreSending files to-and-fro using bluetooth was a novelty that quickly wore off when I still used a Nokia. There really is no need
Its not the same phone...The finger password its new the camera its upgraded and same the processor more fast with more stability.You damn haters,samsung its a shit and every phone that have android its a shit on iOS you don't ever have lag or freeze's.The best at OS after iOS is the WindowsPhone on the Nokia.Because Nokia still remain the best.
Do you really think having fancy specs for your android devices makes it superior than iOS devices? haha. Have you ever seen the games on Apple AppStore vs Android Market? in terms of graphics and memory usage? hahaha.
I own a Samsung Galaxy S4 and I'm not very happy with it.
A very funny self-contradict for Iphone user & Apple Company.
1) Iphone users always say their phone never lag but frikin funny they will keep buy the newer vers which just little change & which they actually no need use such big graphic or RAM for general apps.
2) Apple try to give ppl a kind of "Innovative" image for them so just add a thumbprint sensor partly purpose to antitheft, prob is ppl steal ur phone they can just sell it without need to unlock it.
3) Apple come out another 5c defeat it's own purpose, from then till now Apple always shows the quality of a best phone body, epic fail to get the China market but now make ppl felt that Apple make itself phone quality "cheap", It's not neccesary to lower the price to suit ppl, good quality normatter how higher price it is, as long as it's worth people still willing to buy it!
FarshadPersian, 12 Sep 2013Steve said that he thinks a 4" iPhone is beautiful and larger then that isn't practically... moremodern android phones have bluetooth 4.0...even iphone 5 has bluetooth 4.0 but its of no use since you cant share files with other users(except iphone).
the galaxy s3 ad adresses this issue very well where in real life situations bluetooth is all we use to share files....connect a keyboard,mouse,etc......and it is faster than ever.cloud services are not a great solution all round the globe...
Steve Jobs is died and Apple is going down .. When he was alive he do a good job but now they release new phones but always with same specifications i dont understand ....
the samsung galaxy S3 ads were pretty spot on with how ifans react when anew iphone comes up....the next big thing is already here....its funny how they say we will get this in the next version.
can't get better than this....by the way this is last years video...you can imagine apple still didn't get it right even this year....
even S3 rapes the iphone 5s
is there anything we haven't seen???
I am excited about what General Honami has to offer from the android Army
By the way, the 'S' in the iphone 5s stands for "surrender"
as it has surrendered to the android army
I just hope next year Apple will step up their game MUCH MUCH more. Next year iphone 6 will be released, and if Apple wants to get their reputation back as the trendsetter in the mobile industry, then ERASE the "s" and "c" series (the "c" is not even cheap, i guess "c" is for confused). If Apple make the c series cheap, then i'll be okay with that. Just don't ever release an "s" series again, because i think the pace is too slow if Apple only release one flagship phone every 2 years, while the competitor is busy thinking and continuously improving what to do with their next flagship phone in less than 2 years.
So, 2014 for iphone 6, and 2015 for iphone 7 i hope. Apple only release one (for this year, two) phone every year. So, if they were generous and smart enough to spend much more of their fortune (i know Apple's one of the richest company) into the R&D Department, i think releasing one new flagship without the "s" series every year is not too big of a deal for them. (Just make sure that the newest iphone will reach every corner of the world in a maximum of 2/3 months after release).
I don't hate Apple, i'm also not the fanboy of WP/Android, but i just hope that the current Apple will continue all the hard work and dedication Steve Jobs did before, and be confident that they can do it even without Steve Jobs on their side.
I guess Apple will really push themselves harder if people will be patient enough to not buy the iphone 5s/c now, so Apple sales will drop, and with their sales dropping, they finally realized that it's not gonna be okay if they keep their tradition like this over and over.
The Screen size and Resolution are a major draw-down for iphone 5s.
Discontinuing iphone5 making way for iphone 5c is a tricky strategy.
There was a Time when I wanted to own an Iphone..
There was a time when lame samsung owners tried trashing apple like fools and failed miserably..
There was a time when Apple could hold his head up high, did not need to be defensive because they knew their phone was the best in the World!
But tragically.. that time has passed on..
It's okay.. Nokia rules the world once, apple had its time..
Samsung is undoubtedly the King now!! Everyone who doesnt agree with this is just living in Denial.. Be the bigger person, accept the truth! :)
