AnonD-59657, 23 Sep 2012Do you know that the material used in metal casing is made of aluminum alloy? It is the same m... moreExactly, hence all that chipping in the Boeings' fuselage /S
Same material doesn't imply same quality. There are good things about the iPhone 5, but build is a cheap. Just face it.
Apple is not selling phones.
It's simply selling on it past reputation now.
Android ICS is a much better OS than iOS6, and i cannot wait for jelly bean to come to S3.
MicroSD slot is always a forgotten additional for Apple user.
The screen size has long been a time of the past.
How many phones has screen bigger than 4".
So fault or no, Apple products will still sell but everything that goes up will come down one day.
Judging by the new ipad and iphone 5,Apple will not last long.
Apple: Just as planned. now i will sell them the patented and revolutionary "Lightning iCase ", complete with innovative plastic. only $49.99. available at your nearest apple store :)
apple better patents those chippings before Samsung decides to make scratches on their phones too
candid, 23 Sep 2012Is this why iPhone 5 sold only 2m in pre-orders vs. 10m in pre-order for Galaxy S3? To be fair those 9mill pre orders happened in about a week. I suspect there were more than 2 mill but apple about it's aside of accepting pre orders down.
By the way I'm not an apple fan, just being objective with the facts... something apple fans struggle with it seems
AnonD-59657, 23 Sep 2012You should blame this the contract manufaturer Foxxcon for this issue and not Apple.
Apple ... moreWhat the.., If they made a good product, you said apple is the good thing. IF they made a bad product, you said foxconn is the bad thing. seriously?
short sighted thinking using aluminum. looks fancy in a showcase but not in real world useage. my S3 still looks new, even if I dropped it. and I can get different design battery covers like carbon fiber, leather, or different colors.
[deleted post]That's just cheap talk like yourself! how could you insults other country like that? It's the corporate that should be the target not the country itself!
inder , 22 Sep 2012due to made in chinaNo because it is apple. Most products today especially electronics are made in china. And the reason that it is chipping, in order apple can sell protective cases another source of revenue.
Sometimes i just wish a huge hand from the vastness of space would just bitchslap all these people about "My phone is better than yours"
You get the phone that best suits YOU, you choose the car YOU want, the partner YOU want, the food YOU want.
I love the way we have variety.But this "You're a loser for having X,Y,Z" is just pathetic.
When did the human race become so shallow and self absorbed? Did i blink and miss the time it happened.
So things can arrived scratched or damaged, just tell those concerned in the store.
Silly Truth, 23 Sep 2012Is Apple copying Microsoft? Every release takes at least few iterations to "work" p... more
crApple is using the ifans as guinea pigs. here is the flow:
1. unveil the the new phone and brainwash the ifans and don't mention about any bugs. mention only the positive (it's lighter, thinner, longer, blah blah blah...)
2. sell the buggy new iphone to the ifans (which are now brainwashed).
3. collect the money, give them some sugar (remind them how thin, light, and long so the ifans can't focus on the negative)
4. put the money in the bag.
5. promise a better (buggier) iphone next year.
6. go back to step 1.
AnonD-58527, 23 Sep 2012Nobody lined up for the S3.
iphone5 will crush it in sales.
They're taking 49million by xmas... moreWow!!! Didn't know you can stand in line for pre-orders... Is that a new imaginary Apple culture thing???? Even if you can, real people with real job and life don't waste time standing in line... They simply order via Web.
Aluminum itself does not make it premium. Take carbon for example is dirt cheap but weave it into carbon fibre and walla! It's the processing that counts. If u want to do aluminum u shud go htc way. Micro arc oxidation turn aluminum to ceramic hard. Instead apple chose to go the soda can way. That explain the low production cost of iphone. Dirt cheap process. LOL at soda can iphone5
inder , 22 Sep 2012due to made in chinaAlmost everything is made in China, my phone is, and doesn't have any dents, shame on Apple
AnonD-59657, 23 Sep 2012You should blame this the contract manufaturer Foxxcon for this issue and not Apple. Apple ... moremaybe apple should start manufacturing their own products now instead of relying on other manufacturers. they are indeed the most valuable company so they should invest their money properly. not use them for petty lawsuits. look at samsung, they manufacture their own products up to the chip.

As a windows Phone fan, i did say by this time

But I'm scared.
