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

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

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 can't wait to get an iPhone I don't care if it doesn't have all the features of android but all that matters to me is the sound quality which is excellent and camera quality also excellent

Camera is good i agree, but sharing and editing? are you serious, try to share anything on android and see how much options you have there, on IOS you can only share to facebook and twitter period, you are so tied up in your ecosystem you have become delusional mate. There are so many brilliant native and third party video/picture editing software on android. Please dont just come and start ranting nonsense, IOS is way behind says Apple co-founder so stfu!

iOS has far more sharing capabilities than that lol, and try to mms a video on an android device without selecting limit to mms and see how far u get. And I will not STFU either...mate

You are forgetting USB OTG, connect any peripheral to your own satisfaction, keyboard, mouse, USB flash drive, SSD, Hard drive etc, thats mind blowing and IOS users can only dream!

my CR-V does not have all the feautres and gadgets my neighbor's Audi, so because of that should i feel embarrass?.. does you car have the latest and greatest... dont you think is kind of dumb to judges thinks base on specs alone... all the features you describe... are the least used by users.. my iphone has all the features I used on a regular bases..

Does your CR-V cost as much as that Audi?
If I want to spend much money, I must get the best product, and of course the one that has more features. This iPhone, is a mid end device, has less features but costs as high as hi end phones.
If I can get a cheap mid range phone that has the same features & specs like the expensive one, why should I buy the more expensive one?
And you compare it wrong, Audi is like apple, Honda is like android, because Japanese cars are cheaper but offer better mileage and same features as expensive european cars..

The Iphone is best known for its NON-SHARING abilities. (NO Bluetooth sharing, NO SD Card, NO NFC, etc..)
It's certainly way behind everything in the market at the moment. Android, Symbian, BB10, BB7, WP8. All has better sharing abilities than an iPhone5.

You might want to get you just a regular smartphone then with a great camera, What's the point of getting an Iphone if your not going to download apps or use the web. kinda pointless if you ask me.

Have you heard of the HTC WP8X or One-series with Beats or the Lumia 920? They have superior sound and camera tech to the iPhone (though the iphone's Sony camera is quite good)

I somewhat agree with the woz. Apples core features are among the best there is, novelty features however like popup video is another story. Apple needs to revamp iOS, and make it more fun to use. I have an android device, and the iPhone 5, and although the ip5 is my go to device, the android is more fun due to novelty features like split screen, and popup vid.

Those are not novelty features, they are very practical and makes your phone usage much more easier and quicker, this is what you call innovation, your android device is a Samsung and im very sure thats what you use more cos just face it, browsing the internet, watching videos, playing games is just a bliss on that lovely screen, keep the iphone 5 and ego in the drawer please cos it cannot compete

My android is the note 2, and it's in the drawer more than my iPhone is. As I said the ip5 is, and shall remain my go to device, and I see no reason to change that.

"Actually I love it, sweet device"

Yeah, it's so awesome you sold the first one (still don't buy that), bought a new one, constantly say how much better iNovelties are, and keep it in a drawer! That's love right there.

Ok I'll dumb it down for ya. The first note I bought had the same average camera as the first one, which is part if the reason I returned it. The other reason is that they were going for the low 4's on Craigslist, so I returned the one I paid $703 for here in vegas at AT&T. My ip5 was bought via full upgrade forcing me to purchase the note 2 at full retail. The one I got on Craigslist was $425 and it was white vs the drab gray, do the math. How's that, did I make it layman enough for ya? Now get outta my business...please.

Thank u Bucky. Why can't I simply prefer the go to device that I prefer? I love how people how've never owned an iPhone try to blast it, they are missing out on a sweet device due to...wait for it..........ego.
