Tha truth, 22 Jun 2013lol..you guys are like a bunch of kids arguing about which phone is best..blah blah blah..well... moreAll good and dandy except that a lot of people dislike IOS and crapple for its restricted, illegal, and manipulative crap. Not mine is better than yours
And jobs just jumped on the early bandwagon.
lol..you guys are like a bunch of kids arguing about which phone is best..blah blah blah..well, if you're an apple fan, iphone is the best phone to you but if you're like iphone but not really a true die-hard fan then iphone is just an nice phone but replacable..so is android fan..anyway, let me tell you guys a story. it might be a fact or it might just be an self opinion..you judge..
once upon a time, there was a best and biggest phone brand in the world aka Nokia. the whole world was in love with its phones and the brand for a long long time however one day people just slowly forgot about this nokia name and turned to a new name and that was "iphone". well, there was a phone that could be considered the very first touch-phone in the world called LG Prada from LG. This very first touch-phone was known in other parts of the world such as europe, asia and maybe south america but not really in north america so a guy name Steve Jobs might have seen this phone and had an idea. He thought why not make a phone without buttons like nokias but still can be used like having buttons and maybe better, so he created the iphone based on the concept of the lg prada since not many people in america have ever seen the LG Prada and that was how "iphone" was born and Steve Jobs was named "the father of touch-smartphone" and "the man who created the touch-phone that changed it all"..lol..however we can't deny the fact that he changed the cellphone world and started a new big turn in the way the cellphone makers have been doing. Now back to Nokia, this phone company thought they owned the cellphone world and that nobody could push them off the leader's chair they've been sitting on for years, that's why they did not want to change, they kept their boring design, no need to innovate in their software. the result, they were slowly left behind by the others like the story of the rabbit and the turtle racing. now apple is going the same footstep nokia did, that was lacking in innovating design. the software may change a little once in awhile but the design did not change much while samsung and sony and even nokia now are speed up in the game and slowly leave apple behind. The iphone that we once fell in love at first sight and heart-pounding when holding in hand is now getting the same boring look and feel everytime and it seems like everytime theres a new model of iphone coming out, it is nothing new but just getting a little thinner and taller...but apple does not know that they need one and only one little change will make the iphone "the iphone" again that is the width aka bigger screen.
wake up apple

Poly carbonate is high grade premium material that is much smart than aluminum or glass. Glass shatters and scratches. Aluminum dings and really scratches. Both are bulky, heavy, less malleable, more costly, more fragile, and do not always look better. Not to mention be worse on heat distribution.
The Cosmicist, 21 Jun 2013Can we please stop making ludicrous proclamations like this? Design is a subjective preference... moreGlass is the luxo beverage container (pleasing to the touch, but comparably expensive to produce). Aluminum is a step down, but still a step up from cheap plastic bottles. Your poor example doesn't support your argument at all.
Ram, 21 Jun 2013Me being a iphone user am very disappointed in this new iphone. Samsung has really put iphone ... moreYes! You right! Samsung gs4 is bestest and very different than gs3. Gs3 had a 3 and the new has a 4 SO different! People should now immediately buy samsung fons cause they bestest!
Me being a iphone user am very disappointed in this new iphone. Samsung has really put iphone in the back seat, they really need to stop holding back on the features when other phones already have them, to add a (s) to the current iphone5 is very point less, i work for a cell phone company an iphone sale a very low compared to samsung
Wow what a nice new product, but wait....how will my friends know that I got a new phone?? Apple is laughing at the world lol. Its time to wake up people. Once u stop buyingthe rubbish products they sell then they will wake up and be ininnovative again
EthosEvoss, 21 Jun 2013I dont know if it big coincidence or what but always when i see owner with iphon crap they has... moreI don't know why, maybe it's just a coincidence, but every time I see a person who is both barely literate and loves to use ALL CAPPS, they never have an iPhone :)
I dont know if it big coincidence or what but always when i see owner with iphon crap they has ALWAYS shattered screen .. every single person i seen with iphone have cracked screen ..
and i seen people with android phones or nokias never cracked screen ..
The Cosmicist, 21 Jun 2013Can we please stop making ludicrous proclamations like this? Design is a subjective preference... moreThe Cosmicist: "Blah, blah... I think the iPhone looks like cheap crap."
I suppose taste is subjective. But overall most people agree on a few things - otherwise we wouldn't have models, but use street people in fashion ads.
Plus, you are mixing materials and design (and yes, the iPhone's body is rather expensive to manufacture, compared to most other phones).
I don't know if you've ever held an iPhone, but if you have and still stand by your statement above, I'd hate to see your significant other.... (yuck!)

What's more this is a tech site and I referred to regions where you can not have a iphone 5 so easy not to mention drug lords agree?
Blankman, 21 Jun 2013The top of the range Androids don't even do much more than the iPhone these day, unless you co... morei use bluetooth file transfer pretty much daily so yes the average smartphone user does use that.
USB on the go not so much but it's still there as an option.
TruthSeekr, 21 Jun 2013Give Apple a break will ya? If it weren't for them we'd still be using bulky keypads on our p... moreYou know there were touch screen phones before the iphone like the LG prada and HTC right ? if it weren't for LG and HTC not apple but for LG especially we would still use keypads, iphone is an LG prada rip off.
By the way, anybody want to take a guess as to how much longer Apple's "tick-tock" upgrade strategy will last? It seems like these days, hardware is evolving so rapidly that Apple's practice of redesigning their phone only every two years really puts them behind everyone else.
