IOS 7 is an overstatement. Trying on Andriod and Blackberry OS 10 are much superior platforms and the smaller display is no help either.
The changes are cosmetics and mere eye wash at most. I dont feel like I have had a major upgrade from iphone 4s to 5s. Some basic features are missing and the iOS feels a closed platform compared to Android, which I must say is a treat on Xperia Z and S4.
Apple has lost its innovation edge and iphone feels a complete drag

"Apple Boosts Quarterly Revenue Guidance on Strong iPhone Sales"
"Alongside today's announcement that it sold a record-breaking nine million iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c models over the launch weekend, Apple made a regulatory filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission revealing that it now expects revenue and gross margin for the current financial quarter to come in at the high end of its previously issued guidance."
Why would they do such a move if they really isnt selling super well?
You have hated apple for years, just admit that you desperately try to find excuse why they still doesnt do well even they are doing better than ever :) its not easy to be iHater ;)
Why is it so hard for some folks to understand a simple thing; stick to a product u like. U waste your time talking rubbish whereas these companies make millions every second. Save ur energy

How is that different from any other company?
What is there channel inventory?
And point out this part of the article:
Samsung and Amazon, for example, two of the most prominent Android device vendors, famously refuse to share either shipment or sales totals in their quarterly results. There are no legal requirements that companies do so. But that secrecy can be used to imply that Samsung or Microsoft or ZTE or whomever are “channel stuffing,” which is retail lingo for shipping a bunch of products to a distributor even if a business can’t or won’t sell them, just to make it look like there’s demand for its product.

Zahir Hussain, 23 Sep 2013Hello everyone,
first of all I am a apple fan, but I wanna say my view about apple here..
... moreFirst of all, it's funny how so many people have to state their not an Apple fan, unless they want to risk the mindless fanboy flaming that will follow.
Apple cannot purposefully inflate their numbers because they risk regulatory penalties. They also risk losing the trust of their shareholders, which is extremely important. Companies aren't required to publicly disclose how many devices they sold. They could just say something like "Sales were robust" or "in line with expectations" (a la Microsoft and their surface). The fact that Apple actually released their initial numbers speaks volumes. Apple, and every other company out there, does not publicly release extremely detailed information for the exact reason you want it. That is valuable information that competitors can use to find out more about their strategy or sales. Eg: where they shipped most initially, which carriers are their strongest and weakest.

How cold it be cheap, it cost hell of money. I would rather spend this amount of money on note 3, at least it looks good and big screen.
