iPhone5User, 03 Aug 2013I'm not a fanboy at all! It's simple fact. Sony, HTC AND Samsung have all copied Apple in some... moreI say you copied the humans, you copied many parts of humans! You copied The vision of humans, Hearing ,thinking, eating, standing, loving, and other else, don't say you copied humans, even all the people in this world, including me also have those 'features '.
You can't say android phones copied iPhone or iPhone copied android phones or windows phones, all the brands in this world are copied from one thing - cellphone!
In this high-technology's year 2013,all the smartphone can be a phone or your life companion .Many phones brand are leaning the experience from one thing and change it into other thing, even scientist also want to learn or realise why a bird can fly? And then change it into other thing - airplane.
Stop saying who copied who! Please be polite! When giving the feedback! We just need to say is 'what they can improve it '.Apple need to improve what? Screen size? Security?
Samsung need to improve what? Plastic body? Lagging?
HTC need to Improve what? Mega pixels Camera? Features?
Sony need to improve what? Waterproof level? Screen resolution? Battery?
I will say about my experiences when I was using smartphones from many brands .Apple, nice design, will not follow the current to update the size bigger and bigger (I mean 5++ inch ).Samsung, nice vewing angles with Super Amoled Display, the latest features like air view, smart stay etc.,nice camera outside. Htc, unique body, nice launcher,nice display with IPS-LCD, good camera in low light (ultrapixel camera ),good entertainment with beat audio(boomsound ).Sony, grand feeling with glass design same like IPhone , waterproof features, nice camera with RS, amazing display with Trilurminos and X-Reality technology, good battery with stamina mode.
Many phones is design for Humans. So, you choose yourself to match you life, make it better, forget bitter.
Sony Xperia Z Ultra is the best of huge Sony! Amazing display, good battery life with Stamina mode, great size for me!
iPhone5User, 04 Aug 2013Those figures are completely false. Theres no need for jealousy at all. Your silly Sony device... moreDear iFan,
You claim HTC and Samung have copied Apple? And you say your sick of Sony copying "all of Apples hard-thought-out innovation"? Here's some food for thought by Steve Jobs, Your very own idol. The creator of apple and your blessed iPhone “Good Artists Copy, Great Artists Steal” "We've always been shameless about stealing great ideas". He "Shamelessly" admitted that he (Apple) copies. So why don't you zip your mouth when Apple itself is the biggest robber of all ideas, concepts and technology. Androids notification center? Yeah, Apple copied that too.
I strongly suggest you go vent your frustration elsewhere and leave the people who bought android powered devices alone. End of the day they excercise their freedom of choice. And they buy what suits their requirments. Not something that is non customizable (without jailbreak), full of restrictions, poor quality chasis which chips and scratches and limited bluetooth availabiltiy.
iPhone5User, 04 Aug 2013Those figures are completely false. Theres no need for jealousy at all. Your silly Sony device... moreDid you know that iPhone 5 only records mono audio for video taking? Did you know Apple designed it not to transfer files directly via bluetooth or wifi so they can squeeze you to buy media? You're using their competitor's Maps app because they their own is uselessly erroneous!
The iPhone's hardware quality isn't all you boast to be - easily scratched side & back with poor anodized aluminum; and you need a non-metallic exterior case just to compensate for the grounding with your skin that results in weaker cell signal. That's why they're going polycarbonate (wrongly described by your lot and used to ridicule Android phones - "cheap plastic". And then you talk Android users are jealous about it?!
Apple is copying hardware, software and quality of what premium Android devices are already killing Apple's shrinking market share. You only look at the business news. That's why their CEO needs to be even in China to ensure they work on loosing a foothold there. You didn't get that memo either?
The iPhones is merely performing as a mediocre device. Tell us what else can it can do than the so many things I've already enumerated Android can do? Stop, you can't because there isn't any.
Anonymous, 01 Aug 2013Omg.. what a crap screen like that, even if it come with Snapdragon1000, 4GB RAM and 40MP came... morePicture doesn't do justice.
Look at the phone in real life then you judge.
I have too and it's freaking AMAZING.
Those figures are completely false. Theres no need for jealousy at all. Your silly Sony device can call and text? What more do you need. I'm simply stating the fact that hardware, software, and over all consumer satisfaction wise, Apple achieves supirior results, every time. I'm not saying Sony is a rubbish handset.
Anonymous, 02 Aug 2013I have Xperia Z now so I know I need led flash. Do you bring a digital camera when you go out ... moreNo flash why?,this small mistake of sony beneficial for others ie HTC,Samsung etc
iPhone5User, 03 Aug 2013I'm not a fanboy at all! It's simple fact. Sony, HTC AND Samsung have all copied Apple in some... moreYet another wasted comment space from an Apple aficionado who pretends to be otherwise. Apple is losing period sales, with Android gaining 80% in their own country recently. Didn't you get the memo?
I'm not a fanboy at all! It's simple fact. Sony, HTC AND Samsung have all copied Apple in some way or another. which is why they've all had successful lawsuits against them. iPhone technology is the best put together concept and is innovation in it's purest form. Like I said earlier, iPhone C will be out soon (Which is the budget iPhone, again innovation as Apple is reaching out to a greater market range and tailoring needs for ALL customers, even if they are in poverty) So I would highly reccomend you go purchase the iPhone C. Trust me friends, you won't go back to your cheap laggy Android mongrel devices after!
pouya kavemajd , 02 Aug 2013omfg! I have sumsung galaxy s4 and watching movie in a 5" full hd monitor is really cool ... moreahhaha excatly sony is far ahead than samsung in terms of specs nowadays..samsung phones are shit same old shit design..all phones look the same
This looks like one monster phone..u have everything in this phone,,looks..specs..battery life..full hd.. 2.2 ghz.. i don see any reason why this phone shouldnt hold an upper edge than samsung s4 with this..latest sony phones are really good phones..
iPhone5User, 02 Aug 2013Firstly, I don't think any of these silly Sony phones can even compare to the mighty iPhone 5,... moreDude, please go back and read the transcripts of the recent Apple vs Samsung case where Apple openly admitted to Judge Koh that the it was inspired by Sony. So you are clear, in the context it was used, it meant "we copied Sony" as it was in response to Samsung stating that Apple copied others! Stop trolling and spouting rubbish as your blind fanboyism is showing. Not even sure why you are on this blog as you have absolutely zero to contribute!
iPhone5User, 02 Aug 2013Firstly, I don't think any of these silly Sony phones can even compare to the mighty iPhone 5,... moreSony copying apple? Dude iphone design inspired by sony concept. the design sony makes pass few years before iphone being invented .
iPhone5User, 02 Aug 2013No I assure you its true! Apples innovations are limitless, and the OS being (very slightly) r... moreGosh. I started to create more automation for my Android unit with Tasker. I'm practically writing small apps to tell my device on certain triggers, making it smarter than a poor excuse of an Apple product. I use gestures like tapping, single multi-finger flicks, and pie menus to launch my most commonly used apps. My screen only has a clock to tell me the time.
I even wrote my phone to automatically lock/unlock itself on certain places I commonly spend time, and can remote control with my Smartwatch and/or my bluetooth earpieces, like launching my Internet or my regular 20GB worth of music stored on my 64GB micro-sd card. This is added security while commuting so you don't have to take your device out.
I can even change my battery after some 12 hours of heavy use so I'm assured that I can still download torrents, listen to Internet radio and surf to my heart's content without the need to plug in to a power source in the middle of the day.
Oh, wait, I'm sorry -you can't relate. iPhones can't do any of those. Very innovative indeed.
