iphone is an all-round good phone. the first phone i've stuck with for this long, three years, and the same handset. i'm also the type of person that always wants new phones, and i don't want to give up my iphone after three years.

I'm usually a massive Apple hater etc etc but I do have to say that iPod Touches and iPhones are actually really good pieces of kit. I think one of the major reasons Blackberry can compete is BBM, so this might throw a spanner in the works there.

To be honest, BBM and a physical QWERTY keypad seem to be the only things that keep BlackBerry from getting royally fucked.

every single thing being added in is available in another OS

iCloud, app updates OTA ->Android
Twitter->WP7, Sense
iMessage-> BBM
pull down notifications->Android
tabbed browsing->Android and plenty of browsers in the app store
physical camera button-> WP7 (and plenty of devs had this identical app in the app store and apple pulled it for being "too confusing for a standard user")


nothing is new here

poor comparison when the majority of android handsets have a larger engine than the iphone (the cpu&gpu benchmark higher)


/edit and before you say looks of the device, the galaxy s series looks similar to the iphone and looks are a personal decision.

Im pretty excited to update and jailbreak iOS5. they "fix" a lot of the problems that apple left out, but i still couldnt live without my JB apps, especially text quick reply (biteSMS), and activator.

The only thing iPhone is good at is the screen. rest is the aame or less than om other phones. The shiny half-eaten apple om the back is half the price. Why? Because you are willing to pay that much for it.

Thank Autocorrect for the sheer amount of time it took to write this.

edit: fixed some of Autocorrect's doings.

The only thing I was interested in was OSX Lion and I didn't like it at all. I didn't expect them to come up with anything that was interesting for the time being anyway.


TS: You come across as an obnoxious nerd. We get it, Android and PC platforms are more flexible under the hood and are cheaper. Believe it or not, not everyone gives a shit. They like Apple for various reasons. Sure, some of them are technologically illiterate so all they're buying into is hype, but it's not impossible to find someone with legitimate preferences for Apple. It's the standard for entire industries for good reasons. So maybe you should worry less about what other people use and more about yourself.

...modes and scales are still useless.

Android might have more features but the appeal of iOS (or any Apple product) has never been in the raw number of features. iOS is just amazingly pleasant to use.

The Android OS is really easy to use as well. More handy in terms of multitasking as well. And the "back" button, only a "straight to home screen" button...

Can't really be surprised. I don't know why anyone is, Apple have a history of generally incrementally different updates, they only seem to come out with completely new innovation much more infrequently.
#38
I'm pretty excited for iOS5. Yeah, it may not be new or cutting edge, but it will improve the iPhone/iPad experience.

People need to realize that the phone they use doesn't affect the size of their penis. Also, why do people who use Android feel the need to criticize something they will never use?

Yeah, because everyone have used the same OS their whole life?
Also, a lot of the quality aspects of the iPhone 5 are already found in other phones, for instance the LG Optimus 2x. Much more handy than iPhones, and I have treid both extensively.

I am not sure what "better notifications" exactly is, but I assume the new OS will cause the iPhone to be more expensive still. Though that iMessage thing just seems like a get rich quick type scheme trying to capitalize on the popularity of bbm.
