I have seen a lot of your arguments, as I have seen Solips arguments and I don't believe they are good just because of membership seniority nor ownership of Apple products. However, even in a time with an abundance of commenters with single digits of comments and no seniority trolling here, I think a little bit more constructive criticism of Apple, and tolerance for that, could elevate this site.
I do have several of the solutions like that, including a number of battery cases that no longer fit, so I have resorted to my old dumb-phone as backup. And change to what? My son's HTC is a pretty good piece of merchandise, and is has the larger screen that he wanted (and if he wanted a Samsung I told him to pay for it himself). The size was the reason he refused to have an iPhone, but battery wise it is not better, and it doesn't run iOS. I am perfectly happy with having...
I do not want to argue that our employs occationally do other things with their phone than work, and so what; the phone is actually made for it, and were I live we pay tax for being fortunate to have a company phone so we never have to leave work. I actually do myself occasionally, like  when I spent hours upon hours on various airports recently, checked into a hotel at 5 am and was picked up 2 hours later for a full day of meetings, the entire trip not able to reach an...
Please tell me what claims I made that I can not back up. As far as I can see I have not referred to Steve Jobs doing this or that (but why should that in itself be wrong?). And I do not believe that Tim Cook should be fired. Far as I can see I said that I (and a large number of my collegues (first hand, not hearsay!) would like more battery time, and that I would like a larger screen. I have used Apple products where available since the SE, and I don't like to be insulted...
Just like size doesn't matter? For years the single most criticized topic on this site has been that 3.5, then 4 inches is perfect and wanting more was trolling!
Believe my I am happy to see a larger iPhone, and hopefully also a choice between two sizes, but I would be even happier if it had happened sooner, both for my own uses, and because Apple has left this field open for the competition for way to long.
I don't think you are right that people don't care about this campaigns by Samsung. A standard theory in marketing is that criticizing competitors in general is not an approach that works well, and if not very cleverly done may backfire. Based on my assessment of these campaigns by Samsung, I would believe that Samsung may actually be loosing customers because of the stupidity.
I totally agree that critics and trolling are two distinctly different things. However occationally some people on this site may be a little short sighted in their support of everything Apple chooses. All design is choices and priorities, and priorities changes over time. People use their iPhones much more heavily now than when it was introduced. When I had my first iPhone, my reaction was that the phone was HUGE, I currently use a 4 and a 5, and I was shocked by how much...
The better battery life that would have resulted if they didn't choose to reduce the thickness, which is the single most criticized feature by the 5000+ users of the iPhone where I work.
Couldn't agree more.We don't want any critcism of Apple here, and people who criticizes Apple should not be allowed to buy their products. Have myself had all generations of Macs since the SE, and a handful of iPhone models, but obviously I have never experienced anything other than perfectionism.
