    iBaaaahhhhhhhhh! lol
    Seriously...look at the reviews bigsnake, the unbiased ones are all saying it's another evolutionary step. Some people are due a change, others will go for an iPhone 5 that's how it is...but on this board the majority seem to be saying no they don't fancy a new iPhone

    So thats nearly every vital element of a smartphone, except you forgot android 4.0... which is a pretty big step.

    What!? Apple didnt invent the smartphone. I have been using smartphones since the Motorola MPX200 in 2003!

    Im confused, are you saying people should stay loyal to apple even though their product is mostly pants?
    Are you saying by changing their mind and going for somethhing else, that makes them sheep?
    Personally if what you say is true and masses are swarming to alternatives then i would say it proves the previous statements about most iPhone fans being sheep are just plain false/

    Video and computer interconnects are standard across brands and are changed/developed hand in hand with protocol and technology advancements. Most phone companies now use the Micro-USB connector because to do otherwise would instantly score you minus marks in reviews.
    Apple has its own connector across all its devices and there is a vast array of devices which use it, how can you not see why people are annoyed?
    At the same time, they did need to change it sooner or later as it was an oversized and awkward connector. Why they didnt go to the micro USB il never know.
    The samsung tab connector is stupid though.

    It boils down to personal preference, they are all awesome smartphones, they do a massive amount of things really well. If people want to apply their pre-conditioned bias that's their choice. But I will state, again, buying an iPhone does NOT make you an "iSheep" it doesn't make you any less tech savvy and if people can't seem to see that without looking down on everyone then I feel sorry for them. Power to the consumer, buy what you want not what someone else tells you to buy. My next phone is probably the 920 but it might be the S4 if I can be arsed to wait

    iPhone 5`s returned as damaged out of the box!

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...st_read_module

    Many excited Apple customers stood in line for hours Friday to get their hands on the shiny new iPhone 5, only to discover nicks and scratches on the smartphones straight out of the box.


    Dissatisfied buyers took to message boards dedicated to Apple products, complaining about slight yet pesky scuffs and scrapes near the antenna markers on the side of the device or close to the screen

    But apple's product design is the bestest, everyone who buys one says so. Its not as if glass + glass was bat crap insaine, and whilst HTC/Nokia are going further in to the polycarbonate route which is stronger, hides scratches etc, anodized alluminum, which I thought was shoddy on my Glofiish back in 2007 is the technology of choice!

    iFixit says this is the first iPhone that's designed to be easily fixed with things like screen though - so a step forward from Apple

    Yeah i saw that, it is a good move from apple but, as Animus said, they use the wrong materials in the first place.
    The poly on my one x still appears to be scratch free a good 6 months into its life and i have no case/cover, its just free in my pocket the whole time. Not only that but i have dropped, thrown, fell onto and all sorts of stupid things with it, its seriously robust!
    Few scratched on the 'gorilla glass' but you only see them in certain light if you look really hard.

    iPhones are getting damaged by the machines that make them for christs sake. For £500+ you should expect a much higher standard of QC.

    I see no reason to upgrade. My Iphone 4 does everything I need. If I do get a new phone I would be more likely to go to an android as the iphone is way to easy to break the back and front glass and have had to replace it twice now.

    Nah. Both as a matter of principle and as a matter of common-bloody-sense.
