Humor: The magical disappointment of the iPhone

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...

Funny that how you have never had a GS3 and compared everything side by side. Makes the whole thing pointless

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.

In actual, there are more people wanted to touch my white Nokia Lumia 900 than my old Iphone 4. In fact, nobody ever ask to touch my old Iphone 4... >_

I wouldnt be caught holding the iPhone 5 unless it's for a drop test.

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

famous quote of the day :
"Watching Twilight movie over and over again is better then buying same iPhone over and over again for double price"

Exactly. It's like waiting and waiting for the "O" in twilight that never happen, and force you to cheat with Vampire Diaries and True Blood.

"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.
