    Now that he got this out of the way, I hope he gets his damn staff to figure out how to make an iPhone that has a battery that doesn't die so damn quickly.

    Sounds like you'll be playing for the same team as me now.

    I have to admit I laughed a little bit. Thinking of some folks here. Have to wonder if some will be trading in their Iphones? (They suck anyway)
    ...or buying an iPhone because of it. Shallowness runs deep in our society.

    Seriously, probably the least important reason to buy or not buy a particular product.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Would it be so tough to program an app that actually shuts off when you close it? And Im all for a bigger battery. Add more memory while you are at it. And if it helps, hire lots of engineers to make it happen. If being gay would enhance the research, make sure they are all gay. Just build a better product.

    I had the original iPhone years and years ago. It was a very good phone for its time. I had the original, the 3G, the 3GS and the 4. But after the 4, the tech in iPhones started lagging. I switched to a Galaxy Note 2 a couple years ago and I've loved it. The screen is large (which, by the way, the iPhone now imitates), I used the stylus quite a bit in the first few months (it was useful in something I was doing, but haven't used it much since) and, most importantly, I'm not forever stuck with the phone being the way Samsung sold it to me. I've been running CyanogenMod for roughly a year now and I still love.

    I'll probably get a new phone soon, because this one has developed problems from usage, but the point I'm making is that, just like in any other area of tech, success is imitated, not a product.

    Just like other smart phone makers followed the lead of the iPhone, the iPhone is now following the lead of Android phone makers. And that's not necessarily a bad thing, it's just a thing. And there's nothing wrong with iPhones, I have no problem with them. They just don't do it for me anymore.
    Yeah, to each their own. I don't want or need a stylus - I'd probably just lose it and, even if I were to get the iPhone 6, I wouldn't get the bigger version as I often have my phone clipped to my belt. For what I use my phone for, iPhone has always been reliable.

    It sure seems an odd thing to be proud of. I am proud of my blue eyes? I mean, give me a break!
    Seemed clear to me the meaning intended was the opposite of 'ashamed.'

    Good multitasking systems do that: the task in the background isn't using as much juice as the one in the foreground, which the iphone actually does pretty decently. To test that, turn on a huge energy hog like apple maps or a graphics-intensive game and feel the phone heat up like all hell. Then hit the home button and open a low energy app like messenger and bam, phone cools down. The Nokia had a phone a couple years ago that couldn't organize its multitasking and the battery would be dead in an hour. I wonder if Apple incorporated a larger battery into the larger version of their newest phone. Welp, I won't know. I won't get a new contract and I ain't shelling out $750 for a new phone when my current 4s is meeting my needs just fine.
