ALonZo, 16 Jul 2011Rumours rumours rumours......that's all they are! The bad stories are probably created by Appl... moreI wouldn't call that clever marketing, thankfully SGS2 has been filling the void.
Everything is getting out of hand... Just because of a rumoured theory. Incredible what an article can do doesn't it?
REMEMBER everyone - this article reads "Theory"... not proven fact. For all any of us know this may fall into 2 categories:
1 - Its false and just drummed up by someone that wanted to see the Fandroids foam at the mouth and act all superior.
2 - Its true.. but is old news as far as Apple is concerned and the new iPhone is past this stage and that problem has been eliminated.
Or perhaps this:
3 - Its true, but the heat problem may not be as serious as many phones that make it to market with this problem and are never corrected... but Apple wanted to do more to reduce that warm feeling from the back of the device when playing Asphalt 5 or watching a movie.
Again remember folks... its listed as a theory, not a fact. Just theory. Which is based on "rumor". Which is "somebody heard something from somebody and told somebody and they told their sister and she then told her boyfriend who told somebody who works with so and so". Get it? For all any of us know this is complete hogwash and the A5 is fine.
Anonymous, 17 Jul 2011wat u on bout samsung galaxy s 2 alot better! n ppl buy apple cuss of status! Nope, people buy Apple products for many reasons, status is not one of them. Usability, longevity, reliability, etc. Those are the reasons I buy Apple products. They last forever!
Anonymous, 16 Jul 2011You know, the price of a certain product comes from its production cost and the later customer... moreWell maybe since you cannot identify the reasons why anyone would want to buy an iPhone then perhaps you are not at all in touch with the wants/needs/desires of the average smartphone buyer at all. Apple's iPhone has a strong and commanding lead in terms of its customer approval ratings... well over any Android device. That says a lot! And the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 are the best selling smartphones - both selling over 30 million, each!
As for production costs - Apple has not been known to throw cheap plastic in its products, just to get that product into production. They take design and aesthetics just as seriously as they do software and function. They are not always perfect at it but at least they try, unlike others that just slap some plastic all over the phone. And its only some of the Android devices that can be had cheaper, not all of them.
Apple doesn't act as if their phone is the only one that can do video calling anymore so than any other device out there claims it. The difference here is that Facetime actually allows someone with an iPhone to call someone on a Mac. That person on the Mac can then call someone on their iPad. Then add in the iPod touch. Its a cross platform thing. And no buyer is ever "trapped" unless the government is there holding a gun to their heads saying they must buy this phone. People can freely choose which phone they want. The iPhone is the clear winner at most carrier locations in the US, being the most requested phone. Notice I said requested and not forced. "Trapped" lol, really?
And I do find it funny how the rabid iHaters (like yourself) use all of the "brainless" and "apple coolaid" and "religion" terms and perspective to try and justify and degrade why so many iPhones sell. Dude - the iPhone sells well because its a great phone with a broad appeal that is easy to use. Plain and simple. And the sheer notion that you think that I should stop saying that somebody would buy an iPhone because its better... Seriously? Nobody can tell anybody to stop talking, understand? If I know a multitude of users that have purchased the iPhone and they claim solid reasons why they got it - then you cannot argue with that, whether either of us agree or disagree. It fits their needs and they knew what they were getting when they got it. And don't act like all Android buyers know exactly what they are buying... had a lady at work the other day that had no idea she could download apps on her Android phone. What????? I think she got it because it was "purple". So don't even act like Android buyers are smarter than iPhone buyers.
And to even suggest that Apple is laughing at its own buyers... really? Nothing more than silly iHater talk with no substance.
Blankman, 16 Jul 2011How have Apple failed when they haven't even released the device? If there's overheating probl... morewat u on bout samsung galaxy s 2 alot better! n ppl buy apple cuss of status!
i choose samsung,htc,lg,motorola,SE,balckberry even nokia than the apple,
apple is a new brand in cellphone world but they choose to compete in searching all the cellphone factory fault according to their own opinion than choosing to compete professioanlly in the global market.. i think its too childish.. but thats just my own opinion
How is Samsung not doing any about heating?
Where is the heating problem?
iphone's days are over, now competetion between only Samsung & HTC.................
Unbiased Observer, 16 Jul 2011Judging by what I see here its quite clear the Android fanatics have no idea why consumers buy... moreSimple: it's like Beats by Dr. Dre, they buy it because of all the marketing saying that their product is the best.

By apple failing i mean to have a smartfone thinner than sgs 2,they have already failed ,i wonder if they burnt the lab down???

AnonD-5197, 16 Jul 2011Lol you didn't get my sarcasm and you didn't read the comment which I replied to.Actually I have understood you and it was sarcastic, but pretty good example. :)
The Iphone is smooth, works well, easier to use, and at the moment has more apps. Good phone for the masses. Android has more choices of phones and features, more options like widgets, hepatic feedback, more customizable. Better for techies.
time to wake up, 16 Jul 2011That has to be one of the dumbest comments I've ever read; don’t confuse vocal talent for grea... moreLol you didn't get my sarcasm and you didn't read the comment which I replied to.

alphashort, 16 Jul 2011You techie nerds really don't get it, do you? People want an i-phone because it is a status s... moreAlphashort, I want to answer your question of who the smart one is.
CERTAINLY NOT YOU!
Status is for people who dont have confidence in themselves. IF YOU WOULD JUST READ THE NEWS ON THIS PAGE, YOU WOULD SEE, THAT GOOGLE MADE A LOT OF MONEY WITH ANDROID, it is just one Newsspot below this one, so it is really pathetic what you say, that are no old news, that are the new from like 10 minutes before this news here were posted by GSMARENA. Something like BRAND LOYALTY is probably one of the most stupid things, somebody can have... I dont have anything against you, but almost 100% of your post is stupid and seems like an last excessive act, because the number of arguments run out and your facts are not facts, just something you made up. I am sorry for destroying your post, but I hate people, who cant really name true fact, to establish a true and fair discussion.
ALonZo, 16 Jul 2011Rumours rumours rumours......that's all they are! The bad stories are probably created by Appl... moreHahahaha Alonzo, your a funny one. Cant believe, if perfect Apple has some issues with their Chipset, which is almost the only thing Apple created by themselves (and probably the only thing, that doesnt work like it should). That is not a rumor with the overheating, if you like it or not.
By the way, i think it is funny to see, how all Applefanies tried to crush the SGS2, because the Display becomes a little warm, if you use it for some time with its resources used to the max, but it aint overheating. But like you see, even apple secure from heat, even more insecure than others like it seems, so I give all those laughs of Appelfannies back to them at once in a big big laugh!!!
