    Features - QOTW: Will you be buying an iPhone 5C/5S?

    Pre-orders are now open, but will you be buying Apple's latest iPhone?

    Nope, I won't. I prefer Android and the choice of handset that android offers.

    Missus said she will though as she only ever gets the S models after Apple has ironed out the bugs in the first model.

    She finds android too fussy and wants a simple phone that just works.

    Android allows me to chose my handset and go with the flow, having both hardware and software at the mercy of single entity does not appeal to me.

    But looking at these, they just look the same as previous models with some interesting features - Seems to me that current iphone 5 users don't need to upgrade - but should see a surge of 4s users flooding the 2nd market with their handsets when they go to 5c/5s

    I am really pleased to see 64bit come to the mobile arena though as this could be seen as laying the foundations for the 'next big thing'.

    No, haven't changed my mind about Apple products, not worth it.

    No. I got a new phone last year, and see no point of upgrading a new phone every two years, let alone every year. No company has convinced me that I *need* their newest and shiniest, and every smartphones nowadays are priced beyond of my idea of an impulse buy.

    Nope, I got a S4 recently, and all my investment in apps is in Google Play.

    But ... I might get an iPod Nano, because I'm at my wits end about the abysmal state of syncing music between my mac and android - and I do have doubletwist and airsync and all that.

    I went from 3G to 4S. I'll probably stick with Apple as I'm fairly heavily invested in the ecosystem, but really what extra functionality has emerged on any platform since?

    Faster processor? Meh.
    64 bit? Meh.
    Better camera? Meh.

    I'll probably just keep using this one until it's uneconomical to repair.

    I've been cured of general upgraditis by buying an iMac. It's not possible to keep upgrading the GPU for an extra few frames/sec.

    Re: Features - QOTW: Will you be buying an iPhone 5C/5S?

    I never liked Apples phones if i'm truly honest, but this generation just seems more vulgar than the last. Especially on the 'low end' version, the plastic case makes it loose the only appeal it ever really had...

    Maybe. Never ever ever buying another Android phone ever again after the problems my S3 has.

    Either Apple or Microsoft will get my custom, next time.

    No. If I ever stop buying Windows Phone, it will be to buy an Ubuntu phone or something with Android. I can't think of any good reason to buy Apple, and every time I've bought Apple devices and laptops it's become a miserable disappointment within months: charging for minor OS updates, insane prices of replacement parts, and gangsterism via built-in obsolescence (seriously, making Chrome and Firefox useless unless I pay for an OS update? Get out).
