Wozniak says the Apple iPhone is "somewhat behind" on smartphone features

0. phoneArena 07 Feb 2013, 15:05 posted on

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak praised Apple iPhone fans for being loyal, but warned Apple that loyalty is not always a given and that the company still needs to turn out the best products; the Woz said that the iPhone has fallen behind on features as other manufacturers have caught up to Apple and he mentioned Samsung as an example...

I actually dig Apple's iPad but the iPhone holds nothing up to mid range android phones today IMHO.

I think it all depends on how u use ur phone

I personally don't use my phone for such heavy tasks
I just want it to work when I need it to, take decent pics, surf the web sometimes, do some navigation and facebook basicly I want things to be as simple and easy as possible

and also the 3.5 inch size for me is a very imoprtant factor I dont like my phone to be so bulky and big that said I dont really like the iphone 5 that much I hope they release a smaller one

But on tablets I want to take full advantage of that big sweet screen I want the os to be more flexable and not just limited what apple thinks is necessary

I dunno, to be a good /phone/ it has to have decent reception. Even the 5 drops calls more frequently than apple launches a new lawsuit or files for a BS patent, and doesn't get great signal reception in comparison to its competitors. Therefore, not a great phone. It's a toy, an ipod with a data plan.

Same here. I love my iPhone, but it's features are definitely falling behind. If a certain few apps I really love would come to Android (which I know for a fact that they aren't according to the developer), and if the Galaxy line wasn't so huge, I would be a Galaxy user in an instant. But with iCloud syncing my phone, iPad, and computer, having those apps that I like to use, and having a smaller phone size, I just can't switch over. Step up your game Apple. This isn't going to cut it for much longer.

Actually it's time for apple to take notes, which they have. Why do I think they replaced the iOS designer? Apple sees the need for change, and they are in the process of doing it. Eclipse, man if u were at CES you'd know what I'm talking about. Apple doesn't have an official booth/presence there, but just trust me I say a big change is coming for iOS. I attend CES every year, and lets just say apple low key there, and change is coming bro.

How do they plan on doing that without Steve Job. This man was stubborn but brilliant and without him, it's just of matter of when it turns on its face.

If there's one thing Steve lacked is the vision to raise successors toexceed even him. I have a ffeeling Google has the visionaries that have the skill set to push the envelope and continue to produce relevant and new products.

Apple has grown to big and I doubt the pioneers in the company have room to ideas to work on paper. But who knows Steve was a pretty smart guy. He might still have products for the next ten years to keep consumers stimulated.... I doubt it.

I think there are some ways to make ios less stagnant. If your reading this apple. I suggest introduction of live widgets to keep the o's fresh.

I hope you're right, I've been hearing that since the iPhone 4 and haven't seen much "Change"

Yeah a big change is definitly coming for iOS.. once again Apple will "add" 200 new features, although you can't really see or use them.. but they are there, lurking in the background somewhere! You just have to take Apples word on that.

Can you give us an example about cool features?

I dont want "COOL FEATURES" from Apple
I want "BASIC FEATURES" like bluetooth file transfer or USB storage etc..

But as long as iTunes exists...
