without Siri, not working apps, problems with wifi, purple photos, inferior maps, no an email link open in Opera, use it as an external drive etc..... just an inferior product

Apple has so many devices and great fragmentation in contrast to Nexus Android devices with no fragmentation....what a shame, Apple

Obviously as the production will be relatively slow, they may keep the price a bit more high to avoid shortages by keeping the price cheaper... Further apple product and affordability never comes together, except in this line...

first apple deliberately holds stock and releases production units slowly to create demand and charge higher...thats hoarding BUT now they are genuinely facing production issues!
I don't buy it...This Apple is rotten!
Ithink its a move to keep charging premium prices

I notice u post that on nearly every apple related article u post on. It sure would b nice if u had some concrete evidence of that allegation, and not jus b blowing hot air. If u notice no one really commented on ur post, cuz there's no truth to it. Even the most hardened apple haters acknowledge that apple has a huge following, and always have lines out the doors and tons of pre orders for their products. Point being apple has no reason to do what u r saying they do. They sell out due to high demand and pent up demand for their products. Apple is a popular company, jus cuz u and a lot of android users don't like apple doesn't make them not b popular.

first off buddy you are posting on my comment :)
and unlike others i dont post a commet here to start a trolling session...i personally hate that but when i do post most of the time (if you have ever read any of my other posts than just on Apple which i doubt you read cause you are a fanboy) you will notice that they arent very short cause they are news and evidence backed!
As an android guy I am not denying Apple's fan following (iSh33p anyone) but that's the sick part of it. Those people are so loyal to Apple and what makes me sick is that Apple screws its loyal fans over and over again. I actually feel for the apple fans here (iPhone 5 and iOS 6)

and buddy what's your problem with my posts? looks like you have been following them keenly. I can post my opinion as long as its not fiction!
What i don't get is whay you have to be such a fanboy and bash me? HMMM figures I guess :)

And whats that about people queueing up? Its freakin 2012 if you cant manage a few thousand customers and meet their demands or make life easy for them yoou are either an inefficient organization or you aare just too much of a prude to respect your customers!

I hate to break it to you but iPhone 5 started out great due to hype but the sales are slower than ever before or else PA would have been full of articles relating to the sales figures of Apple.

Of course and without the iPhone, Samsung is nothing. What is your point? Samsung should have been better than the original iPhone even before its release. Right?!?! It's called excellent engineering and design from Apple. Samsung manufacturer's its own parts, so why did it take to the SII and SIII to catch up to the iPhone. Hmmmm I wonder why....Design time took awhile to get up to speed?

There is a difference between designed and manufactured. It takes a good design team to make a product. You go to the supplier to manufacturer your product. The iPhone is not dependent on Samsung parts moving forward from their processor, screen, and flash. I believe they only supply the A6 and NAND Flash. Even they are looking for Toshiba to supply their NAND Flash. So are you saying that Samsung designed their A6 or manufactured their A6? Can we get this straightened out please?

Come on! You think a tech company can did everything they want to? Samsung is the Korean biggest company. Everything in Korea depends on it and the goverment subsidy them.
