There is not any strident demand of iPhone 4S anyway. It's just a sensational-promotion exploiting the people (world).
[deleted post]iphone 3g got software updates till 2010..that is 2 years after its release android phones such as galaxy s get outdated in 6 to 9 months and samsung has already stopped giving official software updates for galaxy s...
[deleted post]Mine was reasonably priced. I responded to your question earlier to further clarified what I paid for. So I think, it's not overpriced.
coffmad, 10 Oct 2011please someone answer me this, when you have phones like the galaxy s2 available or the nexus ... more"please someone answer me this, when you have phones like the galaxy s2 available or the nexus prime coming very soon, why?"
:D First of all most of people still prefer smaller phone, now Apple is only one who make smaller phone. Sales numbers clearly shows that those huge phones cant sell that much, except sammy did good job with galaxy s2, but it has slowed down already.
Second reason AppStore, all the games and apps. Devs are doing great things for iOS devices.
Third reason very good camera
Four, all the gadgets for iOS devices.
Five, Apple products are made to work perfectly together.
Six, fastest phone out there and you actually can enjoy AWESOME stuffs what devs make for iOS devices instead watching your specsheet.
IPhone and iOS looks very good and finished, android look cheap and ugly.
I could say much more things but i think this is enough. Just wanted to say, everyone dont want your huge android phones, i mean 4,6" screen, just buy tablet :)
Ando fans are going Krazzzzzzzzzzzzzy after reading this.....I phone's 1GHz dual core out performs Samsung's 1.2GHz dual core in every aspect of functionality.....man that's why apple fans always go for performance instead of So called Specs Sheet.
Duel, 10 Oct 2011All the android fans (especially galaxy s2 fans) you like to see spec numbers, why not look th... moreso in english what are the time frames in speed are we looking at. 1, 2, 3 or 10 seconds? The GS2 is pretty fast.
CB, 10 Oct 2011Branding really is important. I have to admit, if you have Iphone, you are cool. If you ... moreandroidians considering their money ..they don't wanna get fooled by throwing lot of money for simple specs phone..they making the right choice for what they have paid..you cant even show off with an iphone infront of atrix,gs2,Can't you?..no one will look at you...androidians can have 2 or 3 iphones...but they won't get fooled instead COOL..then these record pre order are only to show honour to steve..
1st..Ando fan said iPhone 4s has nothing new it will be a flop..
2nd...When Steve Jobs died they said now apple will be not in same pace as it was..
But after reading those figures now they are saying that this is fake...1M people are fools..etc. I am looking forward for some more excuses when it will out perform every upcoming Droid do't even think about the released ones.
If Steve Jobs did not pass away I'm sure the pre-orders number would not have been this high. This is a way for Apple fans to pay tribute I guess.
iFAN?, 10 Oct 2011Php 8,674.00 on a regular plan? it means that your paying it monthly? well it's not cheap your... moreSo inshort, after paying $200 to get the phone (one time charge), the contract requires me just to pay $40 for the next two years which is all CONSUMABLE with free data!
CB, 10 Oct 2011not really, I got my Iphone 4 for around $200 on a regular plan here in the Philippines. I am... morePhp 8,674.00 on a regular plan? it means that your paying it monthly? well it's not cheap your service provider is ripping you off and also if you will do the math it will cost you more than the original price of the phone. when the iphone4 first released in the philippines the sim free phone cost US$924.00 so its way too expensive than other high end phones in the philippine market that has a much better specs than the iphone4.
Anonymous, 10 Oct 2011no, i don't need.. i saw more eyes staring at my HTC than my gf's iphone just because iphone i... moreAnd yeah people will ask "What's that?" and then you start explaining that you have HTC and this is Android and "like" the Iphone its also touchscreen and "like" the Iphone you can also buy apps.
Whereas your GF, people would say, oh you have an Iphone!
All the android fans (especially galaxy s2 fans) you like to see spec numbers, why not look these numbers instead :) First benchmark, a BrowserMark score of 89567. For comparison, it appears that the BrowserMark score for an iPhone 4 running iOS 5 is 44856, so the new iPhone 4S benches twice as fast in the browser. Galaxy s2 got 50504.
Also sunspider test: iPhone 4S 2222,1ms, galaxy s2 4338 (lower is better)
So what was already clear for everyone else than galaxy s2 specs fanboys, iPhone 4s is much faster than galaxy s2, there isn't any phone which get even close the speed of iPhone 4S. :)
I already have a 32GB iPhone 4 and I plan to update itis software to iOS5 on 12 Oct so it makes little sense for me to get the 4S when they are almost similar so I'll be getting Nokia N9 instead which is running on MeeGo and it can't get cooler than that ;)
[deleted post]I agree, android fans are jealous! And for sure almost of all them are samsung's.
Anyway, what to expect from them? Lol!
Btw, Im a nokia fan.
beckon, 10 Oct 2011Like it or not...iPhone is an Icon just like Jobs. You can name dozens of mobilephone that yo... moreyes, this is very true.. just like LV or the rest, they are just bags and people are buying only the brands and not the functionality.. that's the truth about iPhone.. you don't care, as long as there is a half eaten apple there would do..
I find this hard to believe (possible though). It rather smells like a propaganda, or a marketing move (spread rumors like "look how much I sell: I'm gooood ... so come on and buy my product").
anyway, I won't be in the first million, nor in the second, not in any million that buys iphone :) I'll just stick to my old time favorite: nokia (actually, I'm buying their n9).
Anyway, iPhone users: enjoy your phone (as much as I'll enjoy mine)
