Your last sentence: "Without the apps, iphone and ipads are useless!!"
I'm agree with tou, but here is the catch: they have 500000+ apps!
I'm no Apple fan, in fact I'd go as far as saying I wouldn't keep an iGadget is it were given to me, but theses figures just go to show there's still a massive market for smaller screened, cool looking phones. Apps? Android Market has more, so it must all be about the pose factor. You may have the latest quad core'd million Ghz Android phone around, but the only bragging rights would be with geeks.. at least you could feel smug inside though and not feel like a sheep.
This could have been 2 million pre-orders if Samsung didn't threaten to sue Apple on IPHONE 5 on wireless patents.
AnonD-24999, 09 Oct 2011To everyone that say the iphone 4s cost too much. iphone 16GB= $649 unlock. samsung GS ll ... moreBut don't forget the GS2 was tested with a 64gb mirco sd card in it. So you would then have the internal memory and the micro sd... think about it.
Stringz87, 09 Oct 2011I like i-devices, they have a slick design, and are really easy to use! But for adverage p... more iphones and ipads cost as much as any other phones or tablets...check out prices on google..dude this isnt 2007 now every phone costs 500 to 800 dollars also the build quality of the idevices are really high so i think the prices should be higher than other devices
Hi there, I've preordered a 4S. I've been told that there might well be a delay and so who knows I might end up getting the new Nexus. I've had two 2 iphones and a HTC desire.
It's not about specs in the end. It's about software, support and apps. Apple make sure that they get the most of their hardware and tend to give great support through updates. It's not all rosy by any means! iphone 4 camera under florescent lights anyone????
I've always said that I would only buy android again if it was for a nexus. It's simply for the support. I'm delighted that Google have purchased motorola and hope to buy moto again in the future!
When I look at the specs of a lot of androids it just leaves me cold. How many times will it crash? How many bugs will I encounter. How many months do I wait until I receive the update? Apple is like how consoles used to be. Gaming on consoles used to be great since everything was optimised. Whilst you're PC gaming for me was just too much of a hassle with patches etc..even though when it worked, it was great!
THESE ORDERS ARE INCLUDING HANDSETS FOR THOSE WHO THOUGHT THEY WERE GETTING AN iPHONE 5.
I have seen the original list breakdowns on-line, go look for yourselves.
GSMA, report on transparent statistics please! (if you can find any)
AnonD-1825, 09 Oct 2011"Apple's bigest inovation is not their tech"
Apple biggest innovation is they mad... moreI like i-devices, they have a slick design, and are really easy to use!
But for adverage people... not really. Why not?
They cost too much for a lot of people to afford, and their tv ads just make you feel bad cos you can't afford one...
"If you DON'T have an i-phone..."
I have a blackberry, cos i can get it for £20 a month. i-phone 4 is £40 a month.
If the cost was less, i might get one, but we both know that will never happen...
But if you have one, enjoy it!
The thing is about apple products is that you pay more for the quality. id love to see anyone still having a structurally sound gs2 in 18 months. Plus Apple products utilise the hardware better than any other products, thats just a fact. dont be a spec sheet bitch or a fanboy have a go on one and then judge.
[deleted post]"Apple's bigest inovation is not their tech"
Apple biggest innovation is they made tech for average people friendly and that's huge thing, i mean there's millions and millions potential customers.
[deleted post]You really need to educate yourself about tech... Just because one thing came before does not mean it is the better... Take for example tablets... Werent they there long before iPad??? Still iPad was the one which made people really consider tablets... Same for dual cores... Optimus 2X was the first phone with dual core but S2 was the one which first became a hit... And about the 8MP bit, most flagship phones got a 8MP camera.. Why dont you complain there??? Because your brain is wired to just find faults in iDevices, thats all...
Anonymous, 09 Oct 2011You do know that the iPhone 4S has sold out at the pre-order stage right? How do you sell more... moreFirst of all no one makes those comments.
There are some people called " trolls" who start insulting.
If u don't like iPhone then get out of this article.
And they call people dumb as if they are so smart.
the publisher, 09 Oct 2011So there are at least 200,000 really naive people. Blows my mind. They prey on the uninformed. its called "choice" I research all these phones have own them both Android and iOS and i'll still buy the iphone, when it comes to heavy day to day usage my iphone battery last me all day long where my Samsung died @ 1600. You buy the Android because it suits your needs so why cant all others buy what works for them without all the hate?? We could say the same for Mac vs. PC
AnonD-19959, 09 Oct 2011Lolz, 200,000 pre orders is only a fraction of the Apple flock out there don't you think?
Im ... moreYou do know that the iPhone 4S has sold out at the pre-order stage right? How do you sell more than sold out?
Also, everyone here needs to chill out. A few modifications to our sentences can make a lot of difference:
Sentence 1: iPhone's new 8MP is exciting, with the new improved optics. I can't wait for this.
Sentence 2: OMG you guys are idiots! iPhone 4S camera is so the best. Don't you understand?
Seriously, both sentences convey the same meaning, but which one do you think will get a nicer response? The truth is, we can probably all have a great discussion, if we just left out the personal insults.
Coolcyclonef5, 09 Oct 2011its so nice to know one apple iphone is competing against numeros android devices .........but... moreIt's funny how you manipulate an OS comparison to a device comparison when you want it to be in your favor. Plane and simple it doesn't matter if it is an Apple iPhone 4/5/6/7.. etc it will sell like hotcakes regardless of design, hardware & software do to its fan base alone.. No argument there. All I am saying is wouldn't it be great if Apple continued to "innovated" and release something mind blowing instead of using outdated hardware and software (app drawer) and do something new for a change. I have owned an iPhone 2G/3GS/4 and with the iPhone 4 I got a bit bored honestly. It did what it was attended to do but it lacked luster right now Q4 2011 compared to other offerings. I think what really is holding it back is its tiny screen. I mean come on you put a dual core cpu with dual core Gpu on a 3.5" screen?
Matt, 09 Oct 2011iPhone 4S is just a huge disappointment to a lot of people.
- iOS 5 is not bad itself, but
... moreAre you kidding me? Stereotypical android fan who has no idea what he talking about just looking specsheet, OMG! :D
Yes bigger numbers of course mean better everything? right...
AnonD-16809, 09 Oct 20111ghz A5 is faster than 1.5ghz of tegra2 so u can think how much faster it is than 1.2ghz exyno... moreyour words just as expected from a fanboy only.....so love your handset even more.and more..don't express here..there are lot of handsets better than yours....
Lolz, 200,000 pre orders is only a fraction of the Apple flock out there don't you think?
Im going wait for the actual sales numbers because i have
a suspicion that it will only be composed of the same old apple flock and that the iphone 4s won't significantly expand the user base of Apple or Apple's market share.
New phone buyers would not invest in something that still looks like the same phone from almost 2 years ago.
I mean why buy something that uses the same old design inspite
inspite of the updated specs?
It can be mistaken for the old iphone 4.
Spin this as you will.
It should've been higher than this to be a real success.
