Finally they are back. NEW IPHONE 5. Highest pixel than 342pixel? Fast LTE? S4 Processor? 13megapixel? Slim @ 9.8mm? VS Xperia V. Apple might be aching
I don't find it necessary to have a 128GB space, when you'll just upgrade your phone each 1 to 2 years. Except if you'll stick to it till death do us apart...What really making me choose apple over android phone is the simple fact about less complicated, more stable release, better compatibility, and easy to use and not to overly complicated...even though, I have both phones to be fair, and I also have that blackberry that really doesn't do anything decent but BBM...but...I don't give.... at all...Why must we be a fan boy while we could just easily open up our mind to all available options? Don't prejudice, it'll limited you to the choice you could made :).
In June 2012, Apple withdrew its product line from the global registry for greener electronics program, Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT), reporting the line no longer qualified for EPEAT's ratings for green certification; the San Francisco Department of Environment then notified its agencies that Apple computers no longer qualified for city purchase funds.
Apple has also been criticized for its methods of tightly controlling information regarding product launches, deliberately passing out misinformation in an effort to find leakers and keep the media unsure of Apple Inc.'s current developments. Therefore Apple's methods result in more hype surrounding product launches. In some cases, Apple deliberately leaks information to the public to gauge potential viability of products such as the Apple iPad. Many attribute Apple's secrecy to Steve Jobs' reclusive nature where "he has always kept things close to the vest...and only confided in relatively few people."
Workers in factories producing Apple products have also been exposed to n-hexane, a neurotoxin that is a cheaper alternative than alcohol for cleaning the products...
Selling expensive products but cost cutting in production, shame on this brand..

AnonD-324, 05 Sep 2012Waiting for this section to get 1000+ comments. Wherever Apple is involved, it's possible. ... moreActually, I've noticed that articles that say something negative about Nokia gets the largest number of comments.
I noticed Apple articles ususally generate lots of comments from both Apple-haters and Apple-lovers.
Other phone makes just fail to generate so much comments. LOL
[deleted post]ease of use is one of iphone's stongest points. Android has quite a bit of a learning curve to master and to the average joe it's too much of a hassle. Let me tell you a story:
I bought my wife an android phone(entry level phone, nothing really special), most of the time she complained about how she couldnt use it. Had she taken her time to learn the basics, im pretty sure she wouldnt have complained as much. Bought her an iphone 4 a few months ago, she uses it everyday, learned the works qquickly. My point: the average joe doesnt want to spend time learning how to get the most out of their phone, they want it to be simple. Blackberry did it, but besides bbm they offered nothing else and soon fell behind.
Things dont get simpler than ios interface(which im not a fan of) everything is right there, click it and pops up. Personally speaking, i prefer customization, make the phone my own, which apple doesnt provide or approve.
Anonymous, 04 Sep 2012"but consider that most people base their comparison on paper specs"
How wrong yo... more*sigh* let me spell it out then:
What is the trend on smartphones right now? Quad cores, what does apple offer right now(with 4s) dual core, which is the norm right now.
What was the trend when the iphone 4 was launched? dual cores. what did iphone 4 offer? single core.
Apples phones are underpowered when compared to their rivals(Was that too hard to grasp?) Samsung, Lg, HTC, Meizu, etc are making phones with greater specs than the iphone, that is what i mean by underpowered. So basically you end up paying more money for a phone with lesser specs than its closest competitors.
We already know that that doesnt mean the phone would be laggy, optimization has been one of the keys to apple's success. Strong app strong app support has also been part of their success,but most of their success relies on marketing. on convincing everybody that their products(Which are ok or good) are the best, despite being "inferior"(specswise of course)
Here we go.....the I phone 5 is definitely worth the wait.here we go.....One and Only apple
AnonD-8850, 05 Sep 2012Easy to use smooth and the best apps cant argue there no wonder they have a gazillion dollars ... morewinphone 8 could have all that, easy to use, good specs and all the latest apps, but it's still missing something crucial, which is what apple knows how to do best: Marketing. That is apple's true success, convincing people to buy their phone(despite the fact that there are cheaper options that offer a lot more specwise)
I'd still stick with my Nokia 3210 LTE with Gorilya Glass and WiFi!
