Quest you've always been my favorite poaster. Epic adulation.
I try my best lol
I slammed the car door on mine after getting out & not seeing it fallin the door jam... Yes, with my Otterbox defender case my $850 iPhone 5 & all of its info is fine. I love my tank ;-)
This is only 1 story lol http://youtu.be/e1GsZUSyumk
I got the otterbox defender today and it is causing me to fall out of love with the iphone 5.
The case is a huge, overweight brick. Some problems I've noticed immediately with just light use:
-typing is difficult because of the massive thickness of the case
-the screen protector makes the touchscreen very unresponsive
-the bulk and size make you feel like you're carrying a phone from the 1990's.
I guess I'll use the defender for the next few days as I shop for a lighter, more user friendly case.
I have the note2 and use the otter box defender case. Feels normal size after a few days just hang in there.
I'll have to use the case anyway for a few days while I shop for a new case.
I'm not optimistic about the otterbox: your hand position while typing is inherent unnatural.
I also can't fit the case comfortably in a pants pocket. In a jacket pocket, the entire side of the coat is pulled down by the bulk of this thing.
It is far too much protection for most people in most situations.
Flipped back to my iPhone 5 last night. Yes I'm tired of the same old iOS interface but it sure beats the Android platform. I just can't get into it no matter what I do. Not switching again. Galaxy S3 is no more in my book.
Reportedly; demand for the iPhone 5 is diminishing rather quickly. If the Samsung Galaxy actually takes the lead; I'll probably start rooting for Apple...
If they had a bigger screen and something akin to widgets, I'd probably get one.
It's a phone. A toy. Its gonna be ok.
Ok, whats up with you Apple peeps/bots?
I'm starting to get worried; my patriotic leanings are starting to take hold. Apple needs to step it up! I'm up for a new phone in about 5 months; hopefully Apple will have something fully competitive by then...
S4 will most likely beat whatever apple comes up with
Still lovin' it.
I feel bad for folks who take it that seriously. Just a phone, but a great one for me.
Its not just a phone its a choice. I take my choices seriously. You may still be loving it, but it looks like you're representing a smaller and smaller group of consumers.
I want Apple, and other American companies, to do well. Apple needs to adapt and quit resting on its laurels or the high praises of its loyalists...
Upgrading my ipad2 to the 4 today. I love the resale value of Idevices. I sold a couple and my upgrade to a new ipad is less than $100.
You seem to have a hatred of Apple. Not sure why you are so passionate about a phone but to each their own.
you're comprehension must be lacking...
Nah, I just don't believe your recent statements. There is a deep down illogical hatred of the iPhone in your blood. It's all cool, I used to work with a guy like that.
You're ridiculously mistaken (believe what you want)...
I definitely want to give the iphone a chance; Apple just has to step up its game! I'm thinking they will soon given the recent results regarding the 5.
I have a Mac at home; having an Iphone would make things that much easier, especially itunes integration. but i won't buy the 5; it just doesn't compare favorably and is way too small.
Regardless of my personal choice, i still like it when American companies are dominating. However, it looks like Samsung is pretty much #1 right now (world wide at least).
I've been mistaken before but never ridiculously so. Always firsts in life. OK, enough messing with you. Serious question, do you have Apple TV?
Completely useless thread. Please lock.
Why read it then?
Going with the iPhone 5. I used to be a big hater, but owning the stuff now, I like it a lot.
I was in Starbucks today and I heard the cashier claim iPhone was GOAT.
Blackberry Z10 looks promising. Too bad it won't be available on any major carriers until March-April.
Same here. I got an Iphone 5 today and I can't believe I thought it was not a big upgrade over the 4S. The extra real estate on the screen really jumps out at you and the display is just so much superior to the 4S's; there are no more dark edges and the quality is ultra crisp. Oh, and I can't forget how speedy incredibly speedy the phone is.
Did you have a Wifi or 3G ipad 2? And how much did you sell it for, if you don't mind me asking. I'm thinking about selling my Ipad 2 also.Its a beautiful device, but I can't find much use for it. It would be a good idea to get some cash for it.
Actually, I'm really excited about the Q10. I love physical keyboards. Not upgrading any time soon, but it is good to have one more player on the scene.
iOS 6.1 update a game changer? Meh
Wifi version. I got $230 for it.
The 4 is just like buying a new i5 in terms of wow factor. The screen is just incredibly rich and crisp now, and obviously it is a lot faster.
I use my ipad literally every day, so I like to update every 2 years.
It's an epic update.
Anyone here have any thoughts on the LG Nexus 4?
iPhone is better I think.
Extra real estate
its the same width and only a little longer.
The Sony Xperia Z is what the Iphone 5 should have been!
It looks like a great phone for less if you can find it. Only $349 for 16g unlocked is a great deal plus you can use something like Straight Talk which is only $45 a month. If I didn't have the s3, I would have probably got this for the low monthly price.
I still have my old 4S laying around in my room. The screen looks unbearably cramped on the 4S compared to the 5. The extra row of icons really gives the phone a less cluttered and neat looking appearance and when I watch Youtube videos or surf the web , I find that it is a much nicer experience than the 4S provided.
how big will the Iphone 6 be ?
I'm hoping at least 4.5 to 4.8 inches! i really want to try iOS, but it has to be much bigger than the current 5 (including wdth)...
Right now i'm leaning towards the Samsung Note, but the Sony Xperia Z seems like a really nice phone.
Yeah, that's what she said....
Anyone have any experience or thoughts on the LG Nexus 4?
Yeah. I bought one. Got it a couple months ago. Great phone. There is a bit of rattling in mine, but thats due to the camera apparently. Other than that, its as smooth as butter. Camera could be better but when posted on the web, it looks fantastic. Build quality is very nice also. Data works on both AT&T and T-Mobile. Both HSPA+. Some got LTE to work. I prefer "Googles" line-up for phones. They all come pre-unlocked, quadband to use other GSM service data and have overall great performance.
iOS 6.1.2 update is an ele.
HTC One looks like the new king of the block in terms of Android phones
Though of course, the S4 has only just been released:-
I have to say, that although I don't own an iPhone, I do have an iPad 4 (which I assume is similar bar the phone calls) and I think the Apple OS feels quite a bit dated in comparison to the latest versions of Android, particularly given some of the enhancements provided by Samsung and others.
The S4 & HTC One both have some cool things about them. I'm very intrigued with the things the HTC One has to offer. Seems like it will have a better build quality, I'm not a fan of Samsung's plastic phones.
How big is the Iphone 6 ?? and what is this Iphone 5S people are talking about ?
Just a general rant here that does not apply to my glorious iPhone. Microsoft never seems to fix the bugs in their Windows software. They just change the appearance with each new version. All the familiar things you are used to, they move, rename, hide or discontinue.
According to fedace the 6 is going to have a 5 inch screen and is due out in 2014.
According to Fedace? LOL. He's a well known troller who just makes things up to hook people in. He kept on making up quotes from various ATP players until he was called out on it and eventually banned. Now he's re-registered as 'Nostradamus'.
I was going to upgrade to the S4 from the S3, Samsung usually do offers where you trade in and only have to pay a small fee to get the upgrade.
The improvements don't really seem that big though, kind of like a 3.5, like Apple do with the 4, 4S way of doing things.
Hopefully the S5 blows me away
