Humor: iPhone buyers may face a real dilemma

Humor: iPhone buyers may face a real dilemma
The highly anticipated iPhone 6, or “new” iPhone, or whatever it will be called, may be available in more than just a variety of colors. It is widely expected that we will have a couple different sizes of iPhones to choose from two.

For the Apple faithful, this is going to become the epitome of high-class problems as they begin to tackle the glaring challenge presented to them: Which iPhone to buy?

This is sure to be “bigger” in a way that only Apple can communicate. Perhaps a “bigger different,” or, “a new bigger.” That might work for a single product, but for two? We can envision the tension now. In fact, Samsung is certain to have a barrage of ads at the ready as soon as we see the announcements of new iPhone or iPhones.

So, which one do you want? The big one, or, the big one?

I liked it... I chuckled. And now I am happy I got an opportunity to use the word "chuckle". On a serious note, this may be the first iPhone I purchase.

The "V12" stands for how many times you've gotten banned, doesn't it?

Yes... after the 11th ban way back in 2010, I decided not to get banned. I've been playing nice since then.

A coworker of mine is freaking out because of any increase in size. He was convinced that 4" was the perfect size for a phone and all it would ever need to be. When I told him the iPhone 6 will start at 4.7" his jaw just dropped and said "Why would they do such a silly thing?. A 4.7" phone won't even fit in my pockets or my hand..." I had to laugh lol. I told him I had the Note 2 for a year and I actually loved the size... had no issues in my pockets... He will come around I am sure :)

I can't imagine myself brainwashed to use this piece of s**t. Just to maintain status zombies will buy an outdated products at premium price. IOS lacks basic smart features , I'm still wondering how these zombies enjoy their "smart" phones rather than displaying the logo at the back. Pathetic

The iCHUMP is actually pondering: "Geez, for $850+, I could have bought 2 Nexus X's with their Far-SUPERIOR specs, and have $150 left over to feed my SMACK/Meth/Crack addiction!

Apple trying to get more money by luring its customers to buy both, when they are both the same.

Still probably 1 GB ram, dual core processor, no sd card or no changeable battery. Have to be a moron to keep buying the same phone every 2 years! Apple never changes. Apple never again!!!!!!!

You are moron if you go to 2 years contract. If you can afford to buy by cash why not. Unless if your budgeting you money, than you have no choice than to get 2 years contract. Here in the Philippines, it is NOT easy to get Post-Paid or Plan like that. To many requirement needed before you can get 1 or 2 years contract for mobile. Anyway, it because you cannot afford to by in cash, yes you better go to your carrier and get 2 years contract and don't argue here or to yourself. Buy Samsung phones because they have SD card , 3 GB RAM with Octa Core processor and try to compare with the Dual Core and see which is faster in web browsing, don't lag much and etc.

Wow, been awhile since I heard the elitist "You're mad because you can't afford it" accusation. The problem with your logic is, here in the US, the bigger carriers don't discount the price of the plan if you buy full retail. So unless there is another reason to buy full price (like being on a legacy unlimited data plan or having a discontinued promo), what logic is there to buy full retail? If the plan cost is the same either way, there's zero benefit. Until all carriers here in the US offer a discount if you buy full retail, the subsidized plan model will continue to exist.

aba71983, I never said I buy phone every 2 yrs. I've had same phone for 3 yrs. now. Only get new phone when one is good enough to get and apple won't ever make my list agian. I personally think they suck and just can't keep up on technology. Just last year when they came out with LTE. Really? Yea, they are phones for people like you. Like I said, Morons.

Don't take seriously about what I said but that is true. So what if they just implement the LTE last year. As far as I can see, there are most popular the LTE for Apple compared to Samsung and other android phones. Did you clean and clear your RAM after you send reply here. Don't forget so that you have enough RAM, ok!

Seriously dude need to work on your statements . I know auto correct sometimes is annoying but I don't think your statements are due to auto correct.

Really iPhone don't lag? I'm not a samsung fan but compare to s5 vs 5s . 5s is blown away . Your logic is irrelevant. Even the upcoming iPhone 6 I'd bet that still a catch up smartphone toward android.

Who say iPhone don't lag? It lag sometime but not just like android phone that most of time get lag.
