Which? Conversation: Our survey found one in five iPhone users intend to buy the iPhone 5 – even though they haven’t seen it yet. Is this blind devotion wise? Or are we being brainwashed by brilliant marketing and Apple’s ‘cool’ factor?
Of course not. I still have a first gen iTouch. I just bout an iPad 2 and don't plan on upgrading till the iPAD 6 or so.
not upgrading till the iPad 6? so next summer then?
lol, that actually cracked up. Good one.
I'm the same way. I'm only getting the iphone 5 because I have an 8 year old ipod ready to break and a 9 year old phone held together with scotch tape.
Damn dude, 9 year old phone? Props to you for keeping it alive that long.
Whats with all the Apple products being cool hate. They're on top because when they release something it sets the new standard again and again.
what standard does did apply that android phones didn't do first? I hope you dont think facetime was invented by apple.
I don't know much, but ever since the iPhone came out, EVERY phone looks like it. I am pretty sure Android was looking completely different before the iPhone was announced, the same with Blackberry OS. ( I remember someone posted a story about that, I will look for the link) The same goes for the iPad, look at every other tablet and they look just like the iPad, even Kindle will look like one now. Apple may not do much, and it leaves some features out to introduce them as the next best thing on the next iteration, but Apple it is doing something right because EVERYONE is playing catch up. I for one, am expecting the iPhone 5 to come out since I am almost done with my contract and I want a new phone, and I've never had an iPhone. So for me is good news.
WRONG!!!! windows phone 7 looks nothing like iphone and with the mango update its a beast!
Everything that's popular is cool to hate on the internet.
Those people are walking tools.
I think the ones that are tools are the ones that care so much they hate on people that buy Apple products solely because their droids aren't as "cool". Apple's sets the standard in how well it does everything whether it's something innovative or not.
Only idiots buy something blindly... no matter the brand.
yep... i only bought one apple device... and iphone 3gs.. then i went to android... i'll never look back
Exactly, couldn't have said it better myself.
LOL how funny that Apple/Jobs supporter used to buy igadgets every year..
dude... it's reverse psychology
I'm sorry, I just like flash, hdmi support, a 4.3 inch screen, open app/game market/8mp camera, hd video recording. oh...AND 4G!!! As far as I know, Apple still doesn't offer these things in their phones...so much for innovative huh? Then they overcharge the zombies that buy them because "apple is cool"...lambs to the slaughter, lol
I had the 3g and 3gs. Both phones performed well and I was very happy with them. Paired with a mac computer iphones are so user friendly its ridiculous. I recently lost my iphone and decided to go with samsung galaxy s2. Right away I was struck by how much crap is loaded on android phones out of the box. Its like buying a dell computer that has tons of useless crap pre installed. After an hour of cleaning up the phone I am happy with it and it reminds of having a jailbroken iphone. I wont go back to iphone now but I see why people like em so much they are good phones aand yea they look real nice.
what's an iphone?
its funny how satisfied droid os phone users are satisfied with their low end builds. They may do something different but the quality is pretty low. Apple products had component out cables long ago. And when the iphone is jailbreaked nothing compares to its customization, or the app market. I believe the app store has a far greater number of apps compared to the amazon or droid app stores. Flash does work on the iphone btw. There is a reason why the iphone receives much more attention. Android is now a knock off of ios. windows mobile is a choke imo
Are you kidding me? You seriously think the Iphone has better components?????? Ok...answer me this... 1) is the iPhone 4g? 2) What MP camera is in the Iphone? 3) What is the size of the Iphone screen? 4) Is the battery replaceable? 5) How much can you store on your phone...oh wait it's fixed because you don't have memory cards 6) By the way, does the iphone have flash 10.3? (don't count rooted, because frankly having to hack your phone to make it cool is the most idiotic thing I've ever heard of. I'm getting tired of typing but the list goes on...answer me these questions oh Twora sir!!!
