"There's iPhone and then there's everything else," says Apple in response to Samsung Galaxy S 4 unveiling

0. phoneArena posted on 16 Mar 2013, 19:48

With the Samsung Galaxy S 4 catching 99.99% of the buzz in the last two days, Apple is fighting back with a post on its website explaining why you should buy an Apple iPhone 5 instead of the Samsung Galaxy S 4; expanding on the "it just works" thought, Apple says that owners of its iconic smartphone say that it does so many things, so easily...

"There's iPhone and then there's everything else," says Apple in response to Samsung Galaxy S 4 unveiling

Hmm, spoken like a true (and, er, scared) marketer. Whatever. As they say, you can fool all people some of the time, and some people all of the time, but you cannot fool all people all the time. Enough bs already. Instead of mouthing off rehashed press releases and defenses, kindly show us something that would tempt us to buy the best product out there, regardless of the stamped brand on it.

I m not a apple or android fanboy and my first and only(yet) apple device is the iphone 5 and guess what?Im not diisappointed with my purchase at all. i switched from android(galaxy s2) and hated iphone back then but since i bought iphone i m very happy and proud owner of iphone.
My point is that i dont understand why their is so much hatred for Apple here no matter what they do you people criticize. this is so idiotic. you people should really get a life :-(

There is hatred for Apple because they are constantly trying to win market share by getting the competition banned with frivolous lawsuits.

Because of Apple, my smartphone choices are more expensive than they should be, and less advanced than they could be.

I work for a carrier in tech support and i deal with iphones everyday! i cant even tell you how many more problems customers have with battery and wifi issues. Since ios 5 almost every update a majority of calls are wifi not connecting, short battery life or audio quality issues! And there have been tons of andriod devices that had LTE before the iphone. If you look on their website the one slide missing is their awesome customer support which is bs! You have to pay 36 dollars if you didnt buy their 99.00 apple plan so they transfer you to us and we fix your issue! not apple! point in fact Apple is making false claims about their devices so called "awesome features!"

Apple: "There's the iPhone then there's everything else. But once we bankrupt those other companies by dragging out thousands of frivolous lawsuits, there will be only the iPhone. "

The problem is that Apple still sees the iPhone as a music player that can make calls. Everything is centered around iTunes. The world has changed. The use if iTunes, the small hold in 1 hand operate with your thumb rule, the silly requirement for a proprietary expensive connector. Samsung is making all the right decisions and Apple is not.

Lmao that's exactly what I tell my apple fanboy friends when they say android sucks XD

You have a valid point though, I just laughed because I never thought someone would use the exact expression I do (sorta). I always say it's an iPod with cellular service XD

The iPhone is a great phone, for minimalistic people that want essential things right there, at the home screen and prefer a closed, secure ecosystem... The S4 is another great phone, for creative people who want to push the limits of what they're able to do with a smartphone and who prefer all the wonders of open source at the expense of possibly bricking their phone if they don't know what they're doing. Overall, I choose the Android world, but not with the S4 cause it's not the phone for me (I won't use it to it's fullest), instead with the HTC One (it has everything I want/need and some extras I would enjoy).

" "Because Apple makes both the hardware and the software, iOS features are designed to work perfectly with iPhone features like the Retina display, gyro, and accelerometer."

Uh...what? I thought Sony made the cameras and LG produced the display. Lying apple is a liar that lies.

I have been reading many comments from everyone here at Phone Arena, some exhibit great insight, some don't, giving me knowledge to purchase the right phone for me. Thanks to all. What I haven't seen, and forgive me if I've missed something, is phone reception. I use a Galaxy Note (use the pen often for many of my job functions as a Design Engineer and for fun, BTW). My office is on a lower floor of a large building and I consistently get two bars. One HTC and one Motorola user gets one to two bars as well. All three of us get acceptable reception in that our calls have acceptable clarity. There is one iPhone 3 (my boss' phone), one iPhone 4 and one iPhone 5 user in my company and the maximum reception for all three phones is ZERO bars. (All six phones are in the ATT plan.) My wife's Galaxy SII has clear reception there also.)

I purchased a microCell from ATT to enhance the reception for the iPhones (and the others as well) per my GM's request and the HTC, Motorola and my Galaxy Note all get 5 bars, the iPhones 3 to 4. On another note, at family gatherings, my good ol' Note blows away the iPhones 3, 4 and 5s in races with apps and online downloads and searches.

IMHO, despite the (great) features that all these phones have, I have chosen the phone best suited for me in working and leisure environments, and know it's more reliable then the iPhones - again, just in my humble opinion. Q.E.D.

So why can't the US get the octa-core version again?

I find it funny that the word that you get when you combine "crap" and "Apple" together is BANNED on here. Suck on my SGS3, Apple fanboys.

I'm sorry anybody that votes something like the Ford Tarus to be the best car in 10 years straight should be bann from awarding any manufacture or products!!!! Yes I do mean JD Power and Associates, and no it was not a consumer survey report either. And no I'm not trolling, because history proof its that they have awarded to many outrages garbage stuff and to companies with poor customer service or results!!!!

And of course Apple will mention something because all they have is repeats of products. Just take the IPhone clone it, and called it the "S" ....Sh*& we screwed lets release the fix on the next release. And all Apple fans will just play alone its a great new product when it's really the same with the fix. If you can't see the difference in specs dont say nothing at all about other brands!!!!!!!!!!!!!
