    If I was a Justin Bieber hipster, I would 100% buy one. As it stands; It's the HTC 8X for me... in green.

    Getting a bit tired of all the arrogant "isheep, hipster" comments, it doesn't help any discussion and they are good phones (shock horror!) they're just not for everyone.

    Having played with a few, I was very tempted. They look nice, the interface is good, the App store is decent - all the major apps are iOS at any rate, 4G check, battery life is standard but fine, NFC I can live without. As for price, all phones are overpriced.

    And then they ditched Google Maps.

    It's a 920 or a Galaxy Nexus for me.

    A company like Apple which is arrogant itself will mean people will come back with the arrogant users comments all day long...as you can see on this board the majority of people are against Apple more so than the product

    Tempted but the high price compared to the s3 is a big put off! If it was affordable on a 12 month contract I'd go for it, but it isn't so I'm not sure I want to make a two year commitment!

    Certainly not. I've owned a couple of iPod Touches (both broke) and I'm now on an iPhone 3GS (second hand) and when this dies on me I'll be switching away from the Apple brand entirely. Overpriced, planned obsolescence, unreliable hardware, anti-competitive monopolistic war mongerers.

    Re: Features - QOTW: Will you be buying the iPhone 5?

    They release the iPhone 4, which was essentially the 3s with a better camera but in a nicer package so imo a worthwhile update. They they con people and bring out the 4s that did little extra or better. Now they essentially bring out a wide screen version, and should be called the 4s(wide edition).

    Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice,..... Screw you apple!!!

    Hi, I totally appreciate everyone has an opinion, I really don't like the way Apple does business, it's just the comments dripping with condescension aimed at people who own iPhones, as if they're idiots who know nothing about tech, it's just a little ignorant and boring

    Not had, nor ever will have an Apple device. My blackberry integrates beautifully with my works machines, and my laptop surfs and "internets" perfectly. Why pay for something that nearly does all that, and costs me more. I don;t get this phone "arms race" to have the latest and greatest.

    Definitely becoming middle aged.

    a tech based board means people are going to argue against a company who seems to have lost it's way a little. They are not innovating half as much as they did back in the Steve days. He would also not have released ios maps in the state it was released...
    As much as you argue against it Apple are seen as a bad company and many iPhone users regarded as using phones that restrict what they can do unless Apple wants you to do it....it used to be a great idea but appears to be losing it's way with many, especially people who are more technically minded. I know so so many people who have defected to SGS 3's because they are either fed up with Apple or see the iPhone 5 as another small incremental step rather than a leap

    I hate the way every ad is done in a talking slow hypnotic sense like the Church of Scientology does in all their ads too.

    If I won the lottery tonight I would buy a Galaxy 3 or Nokia 920. I want to give my money for innovation, not legal costs to sue all the competition.

    What was the massive leap from SG2 to SG3, processor, screen, camera etc, hardly revolutionary. Nokia 900 to 920, processor, screen etc. Its not like they need to re-invent the wheel, its a smartphone. Apple invented smartphones. Most people so far have said, "screw apple I'm getting a Sg3 or Sg4 when it comes out" etc etc, who are the sheep now. Its a certainty that there is a serious cause for concern with the big companies and there litigious nature, but surely that's for the US government and Patent office to resolve. As for comments on the connector, remember, SCART, SCSI, IDE, E-IDE, you cant expect the same connecteor for ever. I note the Samsung Galaxy tab has a similar 30pin docking port.....
