"There's iPhone and then there's everything else," says Apple in response to Samsung Galaxy S 4 unveiling

0. phoneArena 16 Mar 2013, 19:48 posted on

With the Samsung Galaxy S 4 catching 99.99% of the buzz in the last two days, Apple is fighting back with a post on its website explaining why you should buy an Apple iPhone 5 instead of the Samsung Galaxy S 4; expanding on the "it just works" thought, Apple says that owners of its iconic smartphone say that it does so many things, so easily...

scared of what? Where's the innovation because many people were disappointed with the SIV. I wouldn't call a bunch of new features with -S in the name, innovation.

The eye scrolling is pretty sweet.

If Motorola pulls off the process described in the latest X phone rumors, that'll be smartphone innovation too.

It doesn't actually follow your eyes to scroll. Head position and tilting the phone activate it, which isn't any better than current motion scrolling on Android.

I doubt it. They'll refuse to update it just like they did with several other phones.

At least.those are more than 2 year old phones unlike the android that forgets to update 1 year old phones so Android followers are the worst when it comes to updates..

But here's the thing, manufacturer skins kind of take away the need for updates. Those custom UI's add features to stock Android, so even if some Android users get dropped for support, most don't mind much or were looking to get a new phone anyways. I'm sure most Galaxy S3 users on 4.1 wouldn't mind much if the 4.2 update took longer to happen; because they know they still have more features than the Nexus owners with 4.2.

However, I do think the update from 4.0 to 4.1 should be mandatory on all phones with over 512 MB of RAM. It's a basic update that actually increases performance and adds a few useful features that wouldn't take long at all to implement into the software. Most manufacturers have already or plan to update their device with over 512 MB of RAM to 4.1 except for HTC and their 2011 devices, which is kind of sad.

@Mxyzptlk: Let's say there is no innovation so far from Samsung, HTC, LG, Sony, Motorola and Asus in phones and tablet market.
Could you please tell me a single feature or piece of technology which Apple has invented?

A fair advice to you 'Mxyzptlk' please don't comment like a 2 years old kid on each and every post. You need to show a little maturity and some respect to real innovation.

You know what I mean if you know a little bit of technology and also stop being a marketing guy for a company which doesn't show respect to other companies.

But I'm quite sure that you will call innovation to a 5 with an S in the front...

The only thing I was disappointed about the S4 was with how little the design changed from the S3. As far as innovation, they had Smart Scroll & Pause, IR Blaster so it can act as a remote, the ability to record with both front & back cameras simultaneously. I don't know, sounds pretty innovative to me.
