Even as an Apple user, I feel like the days of getting excited over new cell phone releases is over (well, until there is some substantial new innovation).

Getting rid of the universal jack sounds like the dumb sort of thing Apple would do.

Hopes for a minimum 5 inch screen -- reads article. Well, looks like a nexus for me.

Seriously, I dont have any religious attraction to apple (I own a nexus 7 for reading etc) , but I've always liked the iphone except for its too small screen.Heard they were also putting out a 5.5 iphone, I could go for that.

Shouldn't this be the iPhone 8?

Right Subby, because the Galaxy G5 looks completely different from the G4, which looks completely different from the G3.

(That's sarcasm, BTW. I can't tell them apart.)

It's hilarious that Apple is supposed to reinvent the wheel every year or two, but it's fine for other companies to just crank out the same old crap with minor upgrades.

Fandoids are always so obsessed with a dead man's cock. Dig him up hand hate f*ck him already. If cremated you can put the ashes in your fleshlight or something. Be creative, but you need to get this out of your system. It's unhealthy.

The iPhone has remained about the size of a man's wallet, making it very pocket friendly. Samsung, meanwhile, have gotten big enough they cut into tablet sales.

And what the fark is up with those curved phones?

thornhill: Even as an Apple user, I feel like the days of getting excited over new cell phone releases is over (well, until there is some substantial new innovation).


Samsung, LG, HTC, or Apple users can all count on that. Changing the size or curving the surface means nothing. Phones will be like desktop/laptops are now... just a 'thing', nothing to be excited about.

As much as you'd like it to be that, it's not.

The first iPhone was an exciting product because it completely redefined what a cell phone was and what it could do. And the first few versions had substantial design changes and additions.

Surool: Can you imagine how twisted fandroid panties would be if they had changed the form/function of the new iPhone?


I don't really care.  I have an HTC One.  I talked my wife out of buying an S4 and into getting the 5S last year, and have talked my mom into sticking with her 5 instead of swapping to an Android phone (There are several hiking apps my mom uses that either don't exist or aren't as good on Android, and the iPhone has better battery life when not in use).  We have Android tablets and an iPad at home.

As far as I'm concerned Apple makes good phones, and Samsung & HTC make good phones.  Which one you should get depends on what features are important for you and how you will use the phone.  It should not be treated as a religion or team sport, regardless of which OS or brand you prefer for yourself.

/Except Windows Phone, fark that OS.

This just in:  some form-factor changes result in different/better functionality, and aren't just about styling.  It's more like asking BMW to build a car with a bigger trunk, that seats more than two people.

My Note II fits just fine into my jeans pocket, and I'm not a big guy.  I guess if you're a hipster wearing skinny jeans, you might need to stick with the iPhone's tiny useless screen size, though.

I have a new Windows phone. I turned most of it off due to the data plan limitations predicated on my unwillingness to pay more than $20 a month, but I use it for FM radio/MP3 playback, as a reasonably decent daylight camera, and as a receptacle for a load of technical PDFs I use in my work. Browsing? I use a 12" netbook with a load of security apps and hotspot utilities. Reading FARK on a phone, to judge by the biatching, must be awful.

Hence, my Windows phone is slightly more than all the phone I need, and if I need more, I can turn on enough stuff to cost me more.
 
2014-06-13 02:08:10 PM  
Oh, and the Windows phone. It's a Nokia Lumia 625, and was free with a 24-month re-up on a $20/month grandfathered plan. It replaced a dingy little flip phone that wasn't charging well anymore.

All you need to know about how the press covers Apple, and how people react to it, is this business about replacing the headphone jack with the Lightening port.

All Apple did was quietly file a patent to use the Lightening port to power headphones with some advanced features. Lightening provides more power and allows headphones to communicate more data back and forth with the phone. You could have better control of your music, better noise canceling tech, louder headphones...

It's clearly intended as an optional feature for more advanced headphones. Apple has given zero indication that they will ditch the headphone jack. Zero.

Yet, all the idiot tech journalists now start telling people "Apple is ditching the headphone jack to make you buy proprietary headphones!" and "The new iPhone is not ditching the headphone jack as is rumored!"

This is what passes for tech journalism these days.

It's really a question of market.  As someone else noted in the thread, Samsung phones have gotten so big they are almost mini-tablets.  I want something that fits comfortably in my pocket, and I assume Apple's market research has indicated thats the most "sellable" size.  Apple's habit seems to be averse to multiple iterations of essentially the same product, they only make one basic workstation, one basic phone, two basic laptop form factors etc.  So like computers, if the iPhone doesn't float your boat, there are a million different Android phones out there that work perfectly well.

What JPEG and tiny sensor? I'm using RAW in the DNG format and the sensor is much hardly small. Not DSLR big but not small.

Also the shutter is mechanical and not rolling allowing manual iso and shutter speed.

God, I hate that shiat.  I'm a photographer and I hear this all the time...  "But my phone has more mega-pixels than your fancy Canon DSLR!"  Marketing types have reduced digital photography down to a number, so that mouth-breathers have something they can use to 'compare'.  It's too much effort to explain that the sensor in something like a 70D is far larger and more sensitive than the sensor in a tiny phone, or that the glass in those expensive lenses might allow for better results, or the million other things that make a proper camera generally better.  Nope, it's all about the megapixels.  It happens with cars too.  I mean, in theory my Toyota truck has more horsepower than my VW Jetta.  So why is the Jetta faster?  Torque, gear ratios, et cetera.

Sorry, bit of a rant there, touched a nerve.

I'm not carrying a DSLR around all day when the mobile phone I have is ranked with DSLR. Sure near bottom but I'm not carrying around a huge DSLR.

The best camera is the one with you.
