IPhone 5 - Good or just another simple upgrade
« on: September 12, 2012, 11:07:20 AM »
They just unveiled the Iphone 5, what do you think?

I'm not too impressed, but that can change once I see it in person.  Almost seems as if they're are just making minor improvements at this point, but not the revolutionary changes that made so many people fall for the company.

Essentially, what they have is an improvement upon the display (taller screen 4 inches), LTE (4 LTE capability), A6 (New faster chip with better processing), cameras (They made the camera better), they now have 3 speakers (back, upper front and lower front), dock connector (smaller dock connector) and the release of iOS 6.

I just lol at the people who expect Apple to reinvent the wheel every fuckin year. As if "only" 3 times a decade wasnt enough. And at the level they are right now, keeping the quality is by itself an honorable achievment.

so it grew taller warranting it to be called version 5?  Sigh.  People will still line up and get something that is exactly like their current phone but dish out more cash for it.  So lame.

Does anyone here own the Galaxy Note 2 or have any information regarding the Nokia Lumia 920 in comparison to Apple's Iphone 5?

Looks like they are improving the GPS / directions thing.  The current one sucks and has gotten me lost or going the wrong way numerous times.

very dissapointing. I was hoping for the new smaller iPad.  I guess I will go with the Galazy 7 tab 2.  I was thinking of the New Fire but the 32GB doesn't come out until late October

A little ironic that the gay man started this thread.  What is the obsession about apple from the gay community?

design, status, you know gay shit that women and fags care about

I will admit I bought the first iphone when it first came out. but the only reason was that it was the only decent smartphone available at the time.

now there's tons with better specs/cost ratio than iphone which you basically just pay for a more exclusive brand.

Should have had at least 2 GHz quad-core processor to make something happen in my pants.

Not a single valid reason to switch from Iphone 4S to the 'taller Iphone5".....
