Chris Buffa (Modojo): For months, Apple fans have impatiently awaited the company's official iPhone 5 announcement.
Turns out, they may have to keep waiting.
Yes they are.
No, every time they come out with a new revision of their iPhone its miles and miles ahead of the competition. Competitors are just now catching up to the iPhone 4, and in some respects still are not there. The mixture of hardware and software is unrivaled. Its not realistic to think they could innovate yearly.
That's...not right... I may be a fan of apple products, but at least I can see that there are things out there with better hardware capabilities than iPhones and macs...
The hardware doesn't matter that much. The iPhone 3GS still "feels" snappier than all dual core 2.2-3.0 android phones. We know its because Androids UI isn't hardware accelerated, but the reason doesn't really mater. You can talk tech specs all you want, but in the end it comes down to the user experience. Not everyone has the 4G so, its not like it isn't worth an upgrade. (Contracts are 2 years in length) Im not an apple fan boy, i don't even use an iPhone. lol, just my experience.
What you been smoking? Galaxy S2 surpassed the iPhone the day it was released, MONTHS ago.
On top of that the current iOS isn't exactly holding up well, iOS 5 announcements show a bunch of new things that Android already has available. The updates will only benefit those who are blinded by Apple products, the rest of us have had that functionality for a while.
Oh and could you define 'snappier'?
Well to me they are, but they have made plenty of mistakes in the past and have got away with it.
Meh... I'm dumping my 3GS for one anyway.
It's a must have ONLY if you don't allready have a iPhone 4. Otherwise wait for a REAL upgrade. Sorry Apple, you messed up big with this release!
Though its hardware and ios5 have everything and more, i want a bigger screen and a new look. This is a disappointment. who cares about fanboyism, its what the people want to pay for not how much longer can they milk they iPhone. Had it not gone to Verizon, the iPhone 5 would be here. Droid may have these functions in the form of a 3rd party app, But these are part of the ios, its tweaks and new functions, will be far superior in how it runs compared to any other droid for a long while. The droid os still doesn't compare to the iphone 4. Most of these new features already existed on the app store of if you jailbroke your iphone btw. siri for example is a just like the dictation apps that came out(dragon or something) about 2 years ago. But this looks much more intelligent. Apple takes an idea and makes it a far better user experience.
I don't get why people want a redesigned look already. The look of this phone to me is one of the best. Very thin and sleek. I agree with Gondee. The iPhone is quicker and more responsive than android. My mom has the evo. I'll scroll down on it and it will actually lag a bit and skip every so often. It does the same thing on my g/f's mytouch as well.
one thing i dont get about why droid users make huge uproar about their phones, when the iphones screen is the only that can work as well as an iphone due to it being copyrighted. Droid os touch screens don't feel as smooth, and droid os looks like a Chinese knock off
Im not disappointed at all , love the design im glad its still here. people nowadays want a new design every 8months ridiculous, should be every 2-3 yrs. what was more concerning for me was having dual A5s,bluetooth 4.0,Duel PowerVR SGX543MP. thanks Apple ! cant wait to finally pick mine up this winter :)
