"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...

The only thing people disliked about s4 is they maintained the design of s3..other things are leap ahead.. IPhone 5 is no chance but I have a feeling that next iPhone will be great though not as great as Sammy.

Apple must think everyones is retarded because no sh*t they are the only ones with siri(because its patented, trademarked, and has a troll watching over it), no sh*t they are the only ones with retina(because they have it patented, trademarked, and has a troll watching it) there phones suck and yes they are incredibly user friendly that even a 4 yr old can use it or old people who barely know what decade their in can use it. Just because they made a sexy phone that can break because its premium materials are glass, doesnt mean its a good quality phone.

Dude you don't need to argue with these fanboys.. You can get your Xz and you can't go wrong with it.. It's a great device.. Even I am Sammy boy but that's my preference. I will pick s4 but that doesn't mean I hate Xz..

the point is that others never use their sense of logic like you
they only comment out of emotion. one thumb up for your logical and beautiful comment.

stronger? how so? Ive seen them bent, ive seen them with shattered screens, ive seen people spend hundreds of dollars new charging and music solutions for the new port, ive seen people complain about hitting the max memory on their iPhones with no micro sd card slot, Ive seen them sent away to be fixed because their battery sucks instead of just replacing it with another $40 battery.

“Only iPhone has the Retina display.”

Latest droids have higher pixel density than the iPhone’s Retina, so in a way… the iPhone 5 is the last of the flagships to have that low pixel density. :D

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.

Can Apple spell 'desperate'? Trying to take consumers back in time by bragging about past glories. If they want attention, perhaps they can put up a website showing what they could actually produce and sell.

What a ridiculous campaign!

"iOS6. The world's most advanced operating system."
OMG, iOS6 is barely just an app launcher with still no bluetooth file transfer and they dare call it the MOST ADVANCED OS! Smh..

"Only iPhone has Siri."
Who needs that gimmick when we have Google Now?!

And the best of all...

"Only iPhone has Retina display."
Bitch please! This crap(I like retina display btw xD, I even prefer it to the TFT on the XZ but there's nothing to brag about!) is not even a 720p display while competitors have been offering HD displays since 2011!
