Mugato: TuteTibiImperes: Mugato: That's the big upgrade that people waited in line all night for, a fingerprint scanner? People think their shiat is so important they need MI6 level security for their phone?

Most people aren't  upgrading from the 5 to the 5S, so moving from a 4 to a 4S the difference is bigger.  Plus, the 5S also has a much faster processor and more powerful graphics chip, which personally seems like a bigger deal than a fingerprint scanner.  It also has an improved camera.

I guess people don't care that they have the technology five years ahead of what they're releasing and they're just dolling it out a little at a time to sell more units. But look, new hat!


There's so much competition in the mobile segment that I highly doubt Apple is doing any significant amount of sandbagging when it comes to new features and performance.  Sure, there are more powerful processors out there than the ARM chips used in the majority of phones, but they have to strike a balance between performance and battery life.

Apple could have put in a finger print reader before this, but they wanted to wait until the technology was mature enough (and I'm sure affordable enough) to make sure that it provided a positive experience for owners and didn't hurt the bottom line.  The same goes for LTE, other companies got there first, but the first LTE chips sucked up battery life incredibly quickly, Apple waited until low power chips were available before they integrated it.

cameroncrazy1984: I went from a 3 year old phone that stopped being updated by Android at 2.3.


Android to Apple, now I know there's something wrong with you.

cameroncrazy1984: And now I don't have to. Why are we still talking about this?


I agree, lets talk about you dropping a couple bills for a minor upgrade.

Wait until the next iteration of the iPhone, the EyePhone, where you have to actually have your iris scanned to get into your phone so only you can gain access to your cat pictures. You won't even have to take off your glasses with no lenses in them.

freak7: cameroncrazy1984: Me, I just like not having to enter a passcode every time I unlock my phone. The sh*t works.

Why do you lock your phone, are you carrying top secret CIA documents?


This.

People like to think they're more important than they really are. If your friends are snooping around your phone, get new friends. If your phone gets lost or stolen, call the phone company and have them shut it down until you get another one.

People will sit there texting back and forth with their thumbs pressing away at buttons in a blur, but typing in four digits to unlock your phone is to much hassle?

Do you have email on your phone?  Then congrats!  If you're not locking it, anyone can easily get into any online account you have, except maybe your bank, with about 2 minutes with your phone.  You should really be locking it if you care.  Either way, it's good policy for people to be locking their smartphones, so I'm not sure why you're discouraging that.
