No thanks, I'll buy the 920 with my money. If someone is giving it for free then I wouldn't mind having a nicely designed toy as well.

i'll buy an iPhone once it gets these features:
- bluetooth file transfer
- NFC
- wireless charging
- pureview camera equivalent
- puremotion HD+ screen equivalent
- SD card
- solid quality (no breakable glass)

otherwise, i will definitely go with nokia lumia 920!

Almost 1000 dollars for the unlocked version of a 4 inch phone. Pretty much is a mini computer but not sure on the cost above that of a tablet.

The iPhone never appeal to me, it is not that I don't like, it just it doesn't attract me. I don't find anything attractive and value for money for it.
The only things that's very appealing to me, Nokia Windows Phones and Samsung Galaxy Note 2.

I find it rather interesting that the Canadian dollar is currently worth more than the U.S. dollar, yet the Canadian versions cost more.

import tax and the cost of shipping, simple as that. here in aus we pay close to $800 for a 16gb iphone 4s. a samsung galaxy nexus is $496 and a samsung galaxy s2 is $538. current flagships (one x, s3, note) are still cheaper than the base iphone 4/4s/5

Who pays that much for an Iphone that are missing several features that the Android now has, OMG Greedy Bas#$@*DS, I'm so tired of Apple. Thats like rent money, a car payment, a trip I could be taking. I'm sorry I would not be paying that much for no damn phone that's ridculous & who ever goes out & purchases it for that much are stupid themselves
