In Apple's own words they are using low grade 6000 series aluminum alloy, when they should have used forged 7075 T6 with a hard coat anodize and Teflon coated.Had they done that the iPhone 5 would be far more wear and marring resistant and overall a more durable device.Generally I think the iPhone 5 is just a pain in the ass design that requires way too much exact precision to get right.
II have to agree. The iPhone 5 design is svelte but not practical in many ways. It requires quite a bit of precision to build correctly and defect free, but doesn't use an especially high grade aluminum or anodizing process.The iPhone 5C should be far easier to build right out the box, and wear better.
As long as there is an iPhone sales channel, I don't see Apple losing much sleep over this. And I would expect a massive brick and mortar shop as well. With the carriers not playing nice, a Russian Apple store will have blockbuster lines for iPhones.
    Think twice, because in reality you'll be paying the equivalent of $1,298 for an iPhone.   How...   Subsidized plan pricing + monthly phone payment plan.   AKA Double Dipping customers.   T-Mobile's Jump is much better.
Is this supposed to make sense, because I really hope this is not your best attempt to articulate something intelligent.
It wasn't his fault...The S-voices told him to do it...
I think this story is a bit of an exaggeration.   The biggest issue with Windows Phone is app support.   The hardware is competitive from Nokia, but MSFT is doing a complete piss poor job with their mobile strategy.    For example...the name...Windows Phone. It's a stupid freaking name. Calling it Tile Phone makes more sense. 
Sprint might be a player in 6 months to a year with their new funding and huge supply of spectrum.   Today...they still need too much work for me to consider switching back.    When Sprint has 90% LTE market coverage maybe then I will consider changing back to them.   For now, my AT&T HSPA+ is so fast and coverage so huge, there is no way in hell I am leaving AT&T for a half baked competitor...especially a CDMA competitor. 
Interesting, but nothing to sway me away from my iPhone.   I like my 4S and 5 photos and look forward to the 5S camera improvements, but a 41MP super camera is no proverbial "killer app" to make me dump Apple.   And I do not see the appeal of 50mb pics eating up all my storage space.
We don't know the specifics of Verizon's commitment to Apple, so this whole story could just be headline grab-ass tactics.However, when Verizon signed on with Apple back in 2011, Apple had no real smartphone competition, and the smartphone market had less overall saturation.
