AnonD-85453, 22 Apr 2013It happens when you keep making the same things over and over with minor changes. Apple needs ... moreWhat happens? Last time i checked Apple sold more iPhones and iPads than ever and new numbers are coming tomorrow, everything before that is just typical pointless speculation.
If earlier signs repeats, apple again sold millions and millions devices even analysts think they didnt.
What apple need to learn from samsung? Apple sell more hi-end devices than samsung and makes a lot more money.

IPhone 5 can take hits very well, you find videos from youtube. Try for example iphone 5 extreme droptest
Also iPhone 5 is very good looking phone, especially in white. Of course this is just matter of taste. I think first phone which can compete with iPhone looks is new htc one, which is very good looking phone.
AnonD-132821, 22 Apr 2013Better looks?? Better build quality??? Apple is superior in those two things any day. You kidding me? Better looks - Why iPhone5 didn't win any award in MWC2012? Why it breaks easily just by dropping from your pocket which is not on much heights. You are just an Apple fan boy so I assume this would be coming from you. I own an iPhone 4 and 4s BTW but I post only on facts and what I am current experiencing.
USA USA USA, 22 Apr 2013You've not seen the drop tests where SGS3 smashes up while the iPhone 5 takes minimal damage then?drop tests are really irreverent to any argument IMHO, any modern phone if dropped and lands in the correct place will smash, even more so i suspect with the newer edge to edge screen phones, less to protect, i work in a phone and repair shop and i see plenty of all models iphones htc, samsungs, u name it, none of the new ones are safe unless you buy rugged, simple.
I am one of the 8 million who returned iphone 5 with 2 chips in it but never bought another iphone 5 got 4s..What if the other 8 million or so people did the same?? Apple may say they sold xx million phones but if 8 million were returned and folk did not rebuy how do we know true figure Apple sold??
AnonD-1825, 22 Apr 2013Nope, samsung started everything by copying iPhone.what did they copy, the original galaxy looked nothing like the iphone 3gs which was one of the first main legal battles between the 2, the dispute was regarding the HOME button, yes that makes samsung look like their copying, bear in mind apple are copying plenty of other manufacturers and have been targeted for exactly that reason, this is not a comment about samsung though this is an apple vs all other manufaturers
do people just not read this or...?
'With all that said, Apple is still projected to report more profit than Google and Microsoft combined.'
do you know how much money they have in the bank?
pft some people!
instead of paying £1200 on contract for iphone 5, i live on htc 8s which costed me £150 sim free. I pay £10 a month for sim only plan. In two years, it will cost me at most £400. For £800, I can travel around europe from UK for 14days :D
USA USA USA, 22 Apr 2013You've not seen the drop tests where SGS3 smashes up while the iPhone 5 takes minimal damage then?And you've not seen the blog about 8 million faulty iPhones on the right of this page?
Apple are a world apart from other Smartphone manufacturers. Who else gives updates for three years on their phones? Who else has the best apps first?
Let the Sheeple believe specs and useless features are better than quality and let them buy eastern imitators.
People know Apple have quality products, they are up there with Sony, and Nokia now. HTC and Samsung still seen as low class competitors.
you_troll, 22 Apr 2013drop an iP5, drop a GS3.. who has a better build "quality?"You've not seen the drop tests where SGS3 smashes up while the iPhone 5 takes minimal damage then?
AnonD-132821, 22 Apr 2013Better looks?? Better build quality??? Apple is superior in those two things any day. better quality ?? with those 8 millions phone defected that returned to Foxcom ??
better look ??? that depend on people taste, not your taste. iphone look ugly to me plus hundred millions of people who choose other phones over iphone
Killer Droid, 22 Apr 2013Stop it i know you want a galaxy phone.I dont need expensive smartphone, just like my friend. He have sgs3 and then he bought iPad mini. I asked how much he use he's sgs3 nowdays (he has owned iPad mini 4 months now). He said he hardly use sgs3 anymore anything else than calling because he uses he's iPad almost all the time and he's thinking to sell sgs3 and buy very cheap phone.
I think tablets sells are going to grow while smartphones sells are going to be smaller, more and more people are buying tablets and they doesnt need expensive smartphones which they hardly use.
Thats why i think its going to very smart move for apple to make low cost iPhone, but we see if its happen.
