For once analyst thinking right at least. Cause Apple knows how to redesign their phone unlike Apply just put a big fruit on their same phone in last 5yrs or so people will still buy it and don't care what the phone looks like as long they get their apps. SAMSUNG WILL CRUSH APPLE again 2013. Can't wait to see their newest commercials

Apple needs to allow customization and choices for its consumers.... It needs to allow people to turn the "iPhone" into a "MiPhone." Samsung (or Android in general) allows options for people. People already complain about being stuck in a 2-year contract with carriers because they can't change it, they're locked in it. Apple worsens the contract because you can't even customize the phone to make it yours. So now, not only are people stuck in a 2-year contract, they're stuck with a phone they can't even make "theirs." At least with android you have more to choose from than just a "round-edged rectangle with a round button inside of it that has a little round-edged sqaure inside that."
