Its just such a hype, i don't believe these figures and people should not.Its just to reclaim the market shares which fell few days back. Apple always done it before best way to success is to lie abt it and hype around it.
AnonD-20221, 10 Oct 2011Having a dual core in a phone does not mean anything... Unless you put that to use... Admitted... moreI guess we will see when ICS is released if it utilises the 2 cores. I don't think that phone maufacturers would released dual core phones for the 2nd core not to be used. There is a reason and they will be used. A lot more efficient than the iphone.
CB, 10 Oct 2011Branding really is important. I have to admit, if you have Iphone, you are cool. If you ... moreno, i don't need.. i saw more eyes staring at my HTC than my gf's iphone just because iphone is soooooo common people don't need to look at each other's phone.. it feels exclusive to own something different than the rest of the people..
AnonD-669, 10 Oct 2011Being ripped-off? What? Once a year? And Android user...every 2 months lol!explain how android users are being ripped off? yeah new phones come out every 2 months but if you notice not EVERY phone released it high end. Some if not most of mid range phones. The new galaxy W and Y. They are mid range don't compete with my GS2 but apple release 1 phone at such a high price for everyone? Not everyone can afford or would see the point in paying that price for a phone they mainly want to use for calling and texting. Thats why android has sooooo many phones being released. So explain how we are being ripped off?
Lets not make any fuss about this anymore. I mean it will still come to pass anyway. If people really want the iPhone 4s then let them be. Somebody will post how great the iPhone 4s that its really cool and the best phone there is. Whatever people say about the iPhone 4s, either good or bad. It will come to pass sooner or later.
So I have an ipod touch 4g and I need to upgrade my phone, I waited for iphone 5 but I got zilch!!! Same retina display, same technology and same size!!! Well 4s is a big disappointment indeed, still iphone 4 was a great phone so I am guessing this will be even better but....after Samsung GS II which is an awesome phone, such tiny upgrades are not acceptable for me. Ok the strongest point for 4s now is the camera but the small screen is just a big turn off and to top that what GSMarena posted today about the RAM!!! I think that settles it for me. I will either get Samsung Note or wait for the Samsung Galaxy S II HD LTE or maybe LG with their super perfect display.
Hmmm.. i would rather prefer to "wait and watch" bcoz ever since i bought my previous iphone... i have been a little "(or maybe more) disappointed with my phone in comparison with Nokia and Samsung. Every time they release a new iphone after few months the customers come up with some new difficulties or defects or missing features..(whatsoever u call it) including me.. There a lot of features in iphone 4S just like the "SIRI" which is already been in use in other mobile phones like the Nokia and Samsung with different names but still apple claims that it is the first phone with "voice input". That's totally wrong bcoz i have being using my Nokia with such a feature for over a year...!!
the sentiments behind Steve Jobs demise is one of the factors too... as I see it..

Unless you put that to use... Admitted Android phones came out with your so-called old tech a year ago but my question to you is how many apps and games are really optimised by those two cores inside your phone??? And Siri isnt exactly new but it is much more advanced than the voice app in your Droid... Quad cores??? Droids do not even fully utilise dual cores... Maybe an education will help people learn how to use a thing instead of just owning the thing...
i donn like iphones so i donn care i think htc and Samsung are Better
1 million is impressive but not as impressive as some may think. The phone was released in 2 more countries and two more carriers in the US and sold just 400 000 more. And to be honest I think Steve's passing also helped. You can imagine his passing made front page on possibly every newspaper worldwide. That is a huge amount of advertisement for Apple since I'm sure the papers made the connection to his death with the iPhone and how his passing just followed the announcement of the 4s. 1 million is great but I don't think it is "Apple" great.
I just don't get it.
How come a mediocre device with a 'premium' price attracts gullible persons like horse dump attracts flies.
CB, 10 Oct 2011True, but unlike cigarattes, you don't get lung cancer when you use an Iphone. but ur head gets cooked instead! lolz!
[deleted post]having an good education allows us (android users) to search and get a phone which is better and cheaper phone than the iphone. C'mon man, don't think that because the 4s has ONLY just got dual core and a better camera, that tech has been out for how long now? Easy start of this year and apple have only just got it out now. Same exact design too, the only new thing is siri and that really isn't new to the market. i aint no fan boy but I have an education and know that apple are ripping off their users where as android yeah may have some issues (minor ones if that) I am still £100/£200 better off than if I had an apple with tech that is old. Also we should see the introduction of ICS soon with possibly quad core processors not too far away not either. Which if they come out early next year will put the 4s way behind the times just the 4 was this year with the release GS2 and sensation and Optimus. An education will help you realise your being ripped off
CB, 10 Oct 2011I would be interested to see how Iphone 4S will fare in Samsung home turf in Korea. I do hope... morei saw what u say about SG in the train but i just got back from Bangkok, Sammy is much more powerful there.... so it depends actually....

You are so lame. Haven't you heard of any Android user that had been switching brands in a month or so...at least with iPhone... It's 1 year baby.
i wouldnt say they r i(diots) but i'm a Android user and i've played with iPhone more than enough. i would say this, both have their own appeals for different users.... iOS r for those who dont customize and use what is given by Apple whereas Android lets u customize as much as u can.... i like the customization but my sisters, friends and parents who dunno how to customize begs to differ. so at the end of the day, u can know what the current smartphone populations look like. dont get me wrong, iOS hv its appeal but i like to make my phone mine and not just like what every Tom, Dick & Harry's phone. well, anything with the bitten Apple logo sells.... try asking those 1 million pre-orders, i bet 90% of them dunno what's Siri or iCloud, worse, dual-core....
I for one am happy to hear this even though I don't like Apple's products. Its providing great competition to the market which in turn is good for the consumer (US).
I've noticed something, I REALLY Like Android. Samsung, LG and Google are absolutely great with a few companies coming up also, Sony Ericsson, Huawei (surprisingly) and more. Android is a great OS and very user friendly. The MAJOR flaw and turn off to me about Android are some of the FANBOYS. They have got to be some of the most obnoxious, arrogant and disrespectful fanboys in the mobile market. This crown used to be held by Apple fanboys but recently Android fanboys have taken that crown. I won't give any examples but some can be seen in a few of last weeks articles regarding the passing of Steve Jobs, not just on this site but alot of other sites as well.
I REALLY Like Android and my next device will be an Android device until Tizen comes out and I know the experience will be great because Google is a very respectable company as are it's supporters. I have to choose between the Nexus Prime, Amaze 4G, Optimus LTE (if it comes out in the US), LG LU6200 and the LG K once they are released. I love choice and great competition and this news brings healthy competition to the mobile market. Can't wait to see what devices come out next year.
