    Nope. Apple isn't the top dog in phone hardware/software any longer. The Android phones (and software) have surpassed Apple, who surprisingly couldn't even eek out some interesting features this time around.

    That said, the iPhone is a decent phone for less advanced users. I, as a computer professional, prefer the flexibility/configurability of Android Ice Cream Sandwich.

    Apple's gaffe with GPS/mapping displays how rushed that decision to move away from Google was. I also use Google products (mail, voice, drive) extensively, and the integration on Android is superior, and will likely get worse on Apple.

  3. I've got one and love it!

    to each their own.

    i am so over spending money on things. i now spend it on experiences. i currently have an android with a cracked screen. it makes calls, gets me to your blog, texts, and emails just fine.

    I'll upgrade once they get the bugs worked out of the camera and Maps app. Siri alone is worth the upgrade (from my iPhone 4 that only goes up to iOS 5).

    Not really. I'm a student and have to live within my means.
  7. I'm not sure I do. I was pretty disappointed in this new iPhone which only seems to be catching up to Android, not surpassing it. I have a 4, no Siri, but I think the novelty of that would wear off quickly. DH just got Siri on his iPad 3 with the IOS update, and all it does is terrify the dog.

    As for turn by turn directions for the map, I already have a free app (Mapquest) that does that just fine (although it once instructed us to make a U-Turn on a 5 lane freeway in rush hour--I think it might be trying to kill us).

    And the thought of buying lots of adapters for my stuff, ugh!

    No, Apple is quite an awful company actually. They are good at brainwashing the ignorant masses, though.

    @b-nasty Believe it or not some computer professionals would actually prefer something that works well out of the box rather than something so poorly designed that people feel the need to spend three days replacing the keyboard and othewise 'setting up' their phone :)

    Apple releases minimally useful stuff for outrageous prices to pretend its a 'quality product' to compete with other 'quality products'. 90% of their market succes stems from people who want to be alternative and "Not Microsoft"

    That is no longer the case, since apple had degraded the map you can't even set up your phone to fix it. So it is now shit out of the box that you can't even fix, and if you want to set up phone you can do it with hardly any effort just by googling for the fix/change that you want. Much better options then praying that apple will not fuck up something unchangeable again in your new phone.

    Apple is stagnating for years. Nice design...but the iOS6? Really looks and feels old and rigid compared to Windows Phone. I'd say Nokia is now design leader and Windows Phone is the best OS. Now they need better marketing. Still I consider Apple a good choice, just not "Wow." anymore for quite some time.
