The Apple news is done, and now it's time to have a good laugh at the craziness surrounding the new iPhone. We've already seen the Apple announcement of Nothing, and people who couldn't tell that the iPhone 4S wasn't the iPhone 5. Now, let's have some fun with all the Apple haters out there...

Lol so true. I even saw some comments of people saying they never had an iphone and never will. I wonder what would happen if apple comes out with another great iphone 1 day.they will have to eat their own words.

So definitely you'd be talking about iPhone 7 or 8.

No 'cause im not a fan of anything,eventhough right now im going for an iphone, but im sure you will be talking about 7 or 8 since youre a fan. Youre 1 of those who expend their time trying to change peoples mind.instead of accepting what they like and respecting that. By looking at your picture is so easy to tell you expend a lot of time "ihating".

Then apply your own rule for yourself and accept that he hates Apple and respect that. ;)

1 thing is to hate it and i respect that.but if the person is here almost everyday checking out new phones,and technology. Comments such as "i5 is just larger" to just show hate is pointless samsung,htc and others are doing the same. So is like talking trash about the companies he also likes. And i reply from his first sarcastic comment saying ill be here for the 7-8 iphone.when i said nothing to offend him or any1in here.done here.

Hosker, I think you are acting as if no one comments on any of the Android or WP8 articles and says how stupid or lame it is compared to the iPhone. I see it every single day on here. The only difference is that in reality Android users and WP8 users that say anything negative about the iPhone or Apple are given a warning because apparently Apple seems to take offense. I had a warning one time because I said something negative about Apple that I didn't even feel was that bad, but apparently they think differently.

iPhone's use to impress with its smoothness but that's in the past now.android is just as smooth plus faster....and that is a fact.

Everyone amazed by the iPhone 5. There r so many ppl out there who can't tell the difference between an iPhone 4 n iPhone stretch (i mean 5).

It is very hard to switch to dis phone unless u never own an iDevice. Same crap year after year. They didn't feel shame while presentation the way they were just stressing on how they made this phone larger, Slimmer n taller in the last couple of years.
If Samsung copied their technology then y didn't Apple produced even better phones than Samsung? It was just an excuse from Apple to stop Samsung's phones which they couldn't. Because they only had threat from Samsung.

Bottom line is Apple is just dieing slowly after Steve Jobs.

The note 2 is huge how can it be confused, it also has a pen!?

22. hosker (unregistered)


Bravo,its huge and has a pen. 'cause the s3 isnt big neither and the pen is on display not hidden.btw im not hating on the s3 or note 2. They have a nice design. but just like there are people who know nothing about technology and dont know the difference between 4s and 5 there are also people who cant tell which is a note and which is s3. Why?because they dont know much about phones. They are not up to date with every new release.

My point from before is people hate cause the i4s is like i5 just larger well the note 2 is larger bigger than the s3 so before anyone "ihate" should look into the fact that other companies are keeping the same design as well.

Not to sound like a jerk or anything, but the people that walk into my store and specifically ask for a Galaxy S3 and not wander blindly into the light (flashy lights at the apple section) know exactly what they're getting and would be able to tell the difference between the gs3 and the note 2. Same as people asking for the Razr or other devices. Typically means they've done their research not because "it's the thing to have"

Yes, because every Android phone is a 'Droid, right? Of course, how could there possibly be people in the Android camp who don't even know what model phone they are carrying, just that it is a 'Droid and it is Sprint/Verizon/AT&T/etc. Only the iPhone attracts dumb users is your point, correct?
Doctors, lawyers, captains of industry, Nobel laureates, they must all be Android users, judging by the tone of your comments. The next time your mommy or daddy takes you to a place where professionals with advanced degrees work, pay close attention to the devices they hold in their hands. I would make a bet with you, but I would hate to wipe out your allowance.

You know, onething that sells the iPhone is the media. I have never seen a tech site really criticize the limitations of the iPhone. They have a way of making you feel like lack of ordinary Bluetooth is a simple thing not to have in a phone. They have ways and means of playing with words that makes you to think the iPhone is the perfect device to use. I was once a fool till I decided to go try s3, afterwards I knew what I was missing when I didn't go android. Now I am sticking to android,rain or shine.

So did u find the quality with that cheap sgs3 ? I'm impressed !! Congrats if u found it trough that crappy copied phone !! NEVER FORGET THAT WHO BROUGHT THE AMAZNESS FOR THE MOBILE INDUSTRY ... if u can remember its better that how the hell people's were wonder on iPhone original.. When it zooms the pictures with pintch the display & when scroll the display as fast as ur finger dicided. That's the stunner in smartphone history !! So what would u guys looking to c trough the iPhone as a innovation .. They almost innovated it !! Now all they have to do z improve it .. Look at the way that they thinking. They made the display at bigger even still thinking ez to handle it on your one hand. And even slimmer and lighter with more power than ever in iPhone history !! Anyone can made phones just making the big displays and making speeds without any proper quality.. C the new iPhones beauty ?? It's amazing dazzle looking man .. I'm just telling you cz you are in blind side ... Can you c the keypad on iPhone 3G and sgs3 ? When pressing buttons (touching) sgs3 still can not find the smooth quality letter pops up system. It's look like just damn lagy . c the reality bro !! Apple just brilliant !! And Samsung and others are just guys who trying to get closer to em !!

I thought the iphone 4/4s was a gorgeous phone. The 5 is kinda ugly.

ios6 will run great on that hardware and between that and 4g it'll be a decent phone.

I think apple could have done a lot better if they had really wanted to, in just about every aspect.

Its going to sell like hotcakes and for most the people who buy it it'll be exactly what they want/need.

I wont buy one, but like the comic implies, i'll damned sure play with my girlfriends iphone 5 when she picks hers up.

Hard where is standard with whats coming out and thats understandable. But the Real problem with all the Cr@pple is that the iOS is the same on all there phones. It holds them back and really if you dont care about the processor or the screen or bluetooth there is no reason to ever get the new one. Just hope they step up their game so that way they can push for a better smartphone market. Also the iPhone wasnt the first to do a lot of the stuff that ranting nut said i had an HTC 8600 that came out before the i phone that could do most of what your saying.

hey, i like the new iPhone. i don't like iOS of course but that phone is just really a sexy piece of craftsmanship. Apple really didn't need to drastically change the design of the iPhone this year (although i hope there'll be a tear drop shaped one next year) but i do think that this is what they should've done last year but of course with the A5 they had at the time. (Phone Arena!) :P

"although we're not sure where Apple would have gotten the Qualcomm radio or the A6 processor, but we're not really looking at reasonable arguments here."

Are you really insulting your user base? It's not the exact hardware that should have been released last year. There were dual-core processors last year, 4" screens, features that iOS is JUST now coming out with. A whole list of things. If Apple would have come out with a 4" screen and a dual-core with even half of the "new" features last year, by this time now, they would have a much larger competitor. Them coming out with a phone that meets last years standards (minus the A6, I'm actually looking forward to see the kind of punch that gives), sets them back a notch in the phone wars. While I will never say that the iPhone is a bad phone, I will say I feel like they took short of a step forward, and that puts them further behind in the race.

This is my personal opinion and I know many people will argue with me. Overall, I say get a phone that works for you.
