iOS 5 Review

0. phoneArena 13 Oct 2011, 09:24 posted on

From its very first edition until today, iOS has been an example of how you build a super-smart and super easy to use mobile operating system. It is the software that spawned a revolution in the mobile space, leading to the proliferation of smartphones as primary tools for content consumption, web browsing and much more. Now, we've just been treated to iOS's latest major update, called iOS 5. The newest version of the software brings a lot of new features, some of which should be considered pretty important...

My evo 4g had wireless updates when it came out last year. Apple started the touchscreen craze and Android has elaborated on it extremely, Apple is playing catch on some things like their notification center. Its gonna continue to go back n forth on new innovations which is good for us. BTW I love my Evo 3D but the new Sprint S2G2 is sick.

I got iOS5 on my Ipod Touch 4, all works good (except Airplay with Apple TV % no Siri). It runs fine and ive had it on iOS5 since last weekend. I like how notifications are on the top of screen instead of intruding on what your doing.

Cree I love you ! I completely agree with your analysis ! BTW, I am waiting impatiently for the Nexus Prime. Almost considered the Iphone 4s because it's pretty,(yes) despite the small screen. It has a great camera. BUT, Iphone lacks 4G, 4+ inch screen and
it's considered just an application launcher. I really don't understand that but I equate that to 14k gold jewelry versus 14k gold plated jewelry.

I am a die hard android fan but I got to say SIRI is nice, im playing with the iphone 4s demo that we got in i say to it "i am getting sleepy" siri says back, "listen to me right now, put the iphone down and take a nap i'll wait here"

i ask, "what is you favorite color?" siri says, "my favorite color is ... well i donr know how to say it in your language. it's sort of greenish, but with more dimensions"

i said "s**t!!" it said, "im going to act as if i didnt hear that"

among all of the othere things that is a NICE feature there other than that same ol same ol but NICE (one)

In school, college & uni, we are taught that copying is wrong. but it's not quite the case in the real world, especially with technology, which changes rapidly. one company will look at what is available (in their own product as well as competitors), copy/emulate (whatever you want to call it), make it better and put it in their next product. that's what is happening between iOS and Android. if anyone of them remains stagnant, they are out of the race. the newer iteration of a product needs to be better than the current product of its competitor --> progress.
for the end user, we have the option to choose what we like. some choose to whinge/criticize, some learn to adapt to what is available and make the best of it, until a better product becomes available.
if you think your android phone is good now, a better one will come out soon. if you think your iphone 4s is good now, there will be iphone5, and so on.
the bickering from both sides seems so childish.

AGREE with Hallucinator!!.. Relax.. Chill.. enjoy what you have. You have both iOS and the Android plus the RIM... Cool!!! Everything's cool.. =) It's a bright and happy world we live in. Why waste time arguing pointlessly? Stop and smell the roses. Take their pictures if you want using all three phones...compare then see how we could improve them all. That's what RIM does.. that's what Steve did.. don't waste time. Carpe Diem.

This message is for everyone:

Nexus Prime doesn't exist at all! If you're talking about the next Nexus phone, then it's called GALAXY Nexus! Also, hasn't anyone seen this DROID ad yet? :D
