Even Apple's own members do not like the company's policies. Personally I would like iPhones in screen sizes 4, 4.3 and 4.7 inches with WVGA, qHD and HD displays. More choice for consumers = More sales.

Just watch, if they start to see iPhone sales significantly eroded by the SGS3, they'll come out with a 4.7" iPhone Plus and then claim it was their plan all along. It's already happening to the iPad.

Galaxy S3 sales already boosted during Apple's troll-lawsuits took place.

Yeah, but that's relative to other Android devices. Apple has no incentive to change their strategy until someone seriously eats into their own sales.

You are wrong. "More choice" sucks.

And "One-size fits all" is right?

Even though I'm a huge Android fan boy, I can honestly say i truly respect Woz. Even though he is the co creator of Apple he is unbiased. He just recognizes and criticizes technology for what it is. Need more people like him.

Is odd that this comment is coming from a person that wanted a bigger iphone but Unless I am wrong which I am not.. has the iphone5 and is using it as we speak.. there is a name for people like that.. can't remember what name is that.

The name is honest tech genius. He recognizes a shortfall of the device, and unlike the lemmings that can't admit any faults of the iPhone, he talks about it.

I wish my SGS3 had a bigger battery, like the RAZR Maxx. That doesn't mean I can't use it.

I wish my ip5 had more widgets, was a little more customizable, and came in more colors. Great phone though, and I'm getting the note2

then why did you get it?
widgets- apple is too far behind to add them.
customizable LOFreaking L
came in more colours- S3 or Lumia is your friend

I got it cuz I like the iPhone line, and this is by far the best of THAT line. I mentioned colors, cuz I like the colors of the new iPod line.

but answer this, just because you like a certain phone line doesnt mean you have to accept a disappointing phone just to stick to that line up.

why not buy something that offers more or keep the previous one. why accept a half hearted phone just to stick to apple

you cant use something and voice needs for improvements to it at the same time?

Your talking about the Woz, who buys pretty much every gadget that comes out and says something about it one way or another. Me thinks your fanboy tail feathers are just hurt because apple's co-creator said his own company is arrogant.

I think he would know a lot more about it than you, chickenhead.

is not his company anymore.. why would he requeste a big screen when the market is flooded with big screens...let me tell you why.. he knows Apple is not repleaceble.. he wants the Apple logo on the back.. so is not just the big screen.. he also wants what all the haters want...

ohh shut up you complete apple troll

Woz knows more then you will ever know, he's unbiased and see's things as what they are. he dont care about the logo if he did why would he bother with android etc. he'd be like you then stuck in an apple bubble thinking he has the greatest thing ever............

but no he isnt like you. apple is easily replaceable now, can you give anything that makes apple a needed presence in the phone world?

what are you talking about? Woz gives big props to other phone makers for things like BIGGER screens. Apple, just like every other company and person on the planet, is completely replaceable. They havent even been in the mobile scene for 7 years out of what.. 30? They are still a blip on the radar in the scheme of things. A big blip for a few years yea, but a blip non the less.

Yo mix I feel u. Good comment... Did u see the iPhone 5 vs gnote 2 comparison, and if so what r your thoughts?

al i am saying if you like big screen on a phone then don look at Apple... is going to be hard for Apple to make big screens on their iphone because on how they sold everyone on the screen size and an Apple co founder should know this

Calls his own company arrogant but flys to Australia to get in line and be the first to own an iPhone 5. What a douche.

Without that douche, Steve Jobs would have died a relatively successful used car salesman.
