Anonymous, 19 Sep 2012im an engineer im getting one don't even joke about u being an engg. otherwise why would you be a hardcore fan of iphone. we can't even customize the look we want to. its all just icons frigin icons man. not even true multitasking. in android or wp8 u can put notes upfront. but in iphone u got to frigin open up the app to check the note. there are many other things missing in iphone. back in the days iphone was known for not crashing but now non of the other OS crashes except for the few Symbian versions.

name a friging awesome thing about iphone not hardware but software. don't even bother telling about hardware as all phones have aprox. similary settings.

Does it come with pre install apps you know like a laptop comes with office? Will I have to get a new tariff say 2 years in order to get the Iphone 5 and then pay a whopping amount still for the phone. At the same time most carriers hasn't come up with 4G yet so is it the phone that makes Web browsing and applications run fast or the signing up of the 4G network. Reason why I'm asking is isn't it overpriced like majority of apple products? I'm not an android or apple fan just finding what's more cost effective. I'm really interested in what does it do instead of all the hype seen on tv. Well I guess I have to wait until someone uses the Iphone 5.

the way I see the buyers of iphone are mostly non-engineers. well we can't blame them for their lack of knowledge. iphone is certainly a great phone but u cant rule of The Android & WP8(which is still in its early stages).

He told me about iPad... I'll leave the rest of the story for u to complete, since you know everything about me.... Now i use it for net browsing and as my alarm clock...

Exuse me, GS3 Had 10 Million Pre-orders before it came out in the market, So why so amazed to hear that 2 million iphones pre-ordered at the 1st day?? :D

>>This single sentence reflects your entire attitude.
You want to buy something ? go to a store and try it.

Are your friends , salesmen to you ? If u have any doubts regarding iOS or OS X or related to hardware of iOS Devices or Macs , there is single place to clarify any of these things i.e Apple Store.

Go to a store and tell them exactly what features you want , and they will answer all those questions.

"they don't bother about what it can't"
>>No phone today is having a Xenon (8-core) processor and maybe after 5 years phones would carry a xenon processor , So people are crying that "my phone doesn't have xenon processor" ? and did people whine that touchscreens didn't exist widely during their times (1980s) ?

If u want to buy something , go to a store and ask what you want , Just stop pretending to be a desperate and stop trolling.

these Android fan boys are funny ...is something wrong with their head or what ???? why do they keep on cursing other os phones n think they are the best ???? are these people have been exploited by apple or nokia or blackberry ??? i dont see any android fan boy appreciating other os phones....why ios 6 has come with 200 changes ....everyone appreciates wp8 but i dont know what is the problem of android guys .....i dont see any iphone or windows guy saying anything stupid about android......go n see the doctor

The iphones died with Steve and you don't even know it you dinosaur. Steve was the only great inventor for the Iphone and have respect for him. Ok use your 3G sim card in a 4G LTE phone and see if it works faster. I'm not talking about WIFI. Then compare it when you do get a 4G enabled sim card which is provided by your network and see the difference dummy. Some people don't want to wake up as they are still in Steve Jobs land.

try harder and you'll find windows users as well who hate iPhone.

Still a fan of iPhone3's design! Could've been improved on the same lines. Was never interested in 4series iPhones for it's boxy looks & shiny cheap glass back panel! Also it just felt less durable then the 3series.
I hoped for a truly improved iPhone5, but it just fell short of apple's trademark of surprising/amazing it's fans.
"Steve must be really unhappy up-there rightnow"
No choice... Can't wait anylonger for a worthwhile upgrade!! Have to switch now, from my faithful but NOW a very slow iPhone3G. (slow due to recommended software updates!)
