Canada.com - Oh cool, the iPhone 5 has a 4" screen that allows for an extra iOS icon vertically. Users have been able to do that on my 4.3" Android phone for years.
How many people use his phone?
Its an amazing thing that people have the power of their own free thought to where I should invest my own money. ITS CALLED 'CONSUMER CHOICE' - its an amazing concept.
Wow, that guy was a douche, wasn't he?
What a childish article.
Hardly, all you hear about Apple (especially iPhone and iOS) is about how much better it is than the competition. Admittedly he could have made it less of an attack on Apple but it still makes valid points. What the majority of iPhone users don't know is the amazing features that get added in each iteration of the iOS are more often than not already a part the Android OS, and have been for a LONG, LONG time. My personal favourite is the notification bar that was added in iOS5. Shows a few words from incoming texts/email so you get an idea of whats been received without needing to open it. Innovation? Yeap, welcome to the 21st century chaps. :)
I think it could have been presented a much more mature fashion though. I agree that iOS 6 is ONLY now introducing a number of features which Android had for ages, but the mannerism which he did it was just as low as some of the Apple fanboys out there.
I had features that weren't on android through the jailbreak/cydia community on my iphone. Many forget that you can have a sleek looking phone with all the customization you can basically ask for from a robust community. To be fair, android also has it's own form of jailbreak, but it seems people act like this stuff doesn't exist.
I actually loved it. it had a sense of humor with a dash of wit. Android users being condescending for once.
there was no wit. let sum it up for you. look a map. android this. next. look a 4g. android has that. its really pointless.
not really childish. its factual.
its basically an android user talking in the tone of an Apple user.
good points which are true.
but watch iPhone5 users talk about how awesome their phone is and how Apple is continually revolutionizing the industry.
See my reply #4.1.1
How does his android phone have iOS icons?
the android home screens are filled with icons o.o.
Or widgets :) Maybe Apple users will get widgets in iOS 8 or something and the community will rejoice at their genius and innovation only to be told on forums like this that they have been available on Android for years.
Whatever innovation iPhone 5 brings, Android will make it better.
He has a point. But one thing apple has the android will never have is class! So on that note have a great day.......
Class? Suing competition because your losing ground is class? Apple is trying to create a monopoly and you call that class ? Right. Galaxy Note 2 here I come :) iPhone folks can play with there "Amazing" "Lighting" dock all they want http://phandroid.com/2012/0... How brainwashed ppl are. It's amazing if you ask me.
Let's say you invented a great gadget and everyone loved it. You put a patten on it so no one can steal your idea and copy you. Some guy on the other side of town decides to break apart and remake his version of the gadget using your idea. Then he trys to get other people to buy his copied version of your device so he can steal money off of your ideas. Wouldnt you want something to be done about it?
I think your confused. Apple is a hardware brand and Android is an operating system, android is what the mobile companies make it. Whether you like it or not companies like Samsung are closing in quick and with android and windows consumers are offered alot more freedom. You like many Apple users are locked in a bubble but I have also noticed alot of iPhone users around me who's heads are beginning to be turned. First point of business, never underestimate the competition. On another note: its not that Apple are protecting what they have created it is the fact they are trying to patent as much as possible to limit innovation of others, I mean, curved corners, that's bordering on stupidity as many other courts outside of the US have proved.
Apple could put every tecnology availeble in their phone, come on they are the richest company in the world. I mean i was one of the first to buy a hdtv in my contry and for what........for noting what i did was to buy a very expensive divice when there werent even hdmi in a DVD player. When Apple bring something to the table is because they are sure it will function and you will use it. When Android went out with 3G in usa wasn't easy to find a company that offer 3G but whe Apple bring the iPhone 3G it was usable. I can go on an on! That's why Apple is the company with more satisfied clients in the world!!
But the iPhone 5 does not bring anything new to the table. You could easily carry on using an iPhone 4s for another twelve months and not lose out. IPhone has become the call of duty of the mobile world, you know what you're going to get before its released. Apple are too affraid to change anything and it could be that fear that continues to lose them ground to the android market.
Why the hurry, the trend in Apple products is the same since 2007. I' m happy with my iPad first generation and that is a good thing to happen after 3 years of use and is the same with my phone. I have the iPhone 4 and iknow is enogh for me but i deside that i will change my phone every 2 years and i will see a huge difference with iPhone 5. In my opinión iPhone 5 is not made for iPhone 4s owners is made for the owners of iPhones that can't be updated with the new features.
