I hope you realize that even the most current iPhone is not made of gold either, just the same plastic and glass. The glass is very fragile though - not Gorilla glass found in other premium phones. Dated LCD technology, no AMOLED, screen size is smaller then credit card, still 512 of RAM, no NFC, no removable storage, no removable battery. It took Apple 2 years longer to give ifans dual core, 8mpx camera, multitasking, voice command (siri) and notifications.

Customer service and support? It took Apple 18 month to fix the antenna problem. Just go get a "premium quality" bumper

Someone still lives in 2007! This bullshit list of specs already proven to be useless crap.

We'll find out in the fall if they agree.

I seriously doubt this new item will be an iPad mini. However, it wouldn't surprise me at all if its a new iPod touch.

"


Youre confusing two different stories here.

It's more accurate to say it's "glassified metal". The glass portion refers to the disorganised amorphous (rather than crystalline) arrangement of the metallic molecules. The radio transparency derives from the amorphous state, which is not subject to magnetization or the shared electron flow of crystalline metals that results in them acting like molecular faraday cages.

Cubic zirconia and zirconium are different things. Apple investigated using ceramics based on cubic zirconia but this is completely unrelated to liquid metal.

The iPhone uses aluminosilicate glass. Corning markets their alkali-aluminosilicate glass as "Gorilla Glass." The frame of the iPhone 4S is stainless steel rather than plastic.

Apple iPhone LCD technology surpasses competitors. The X subpixel angular subtense at 12" of iPhone 4S is 0.290 and the Y pixel angular subtense at 12" is 0.869. Only one Android-based smartphone surpasses this benchmark. Furthermore, the new iPad provides 99% Color Gamut Standard conformance which is also industry-leading to the extent that this is actually a revolutionary development in contrast to the cartoonishly over-saturated AMOLED screens you tout.

Android-based smartphones are returned more often.

Yet despite having half the RAM and one-third slower CPU clock speeds, the iPhone 4S outperforms virtually every Android-based smartphone and rivals newer Android-based smartphones. The venerable iPhone 3GS can upgrade to the latest version of iOS, iOS 5 while most Android-based smartphones still ship with an 18 month old OS.

I have never seen a NFC terminal, ever. NFC is pointless until widely deployed. Google deserves some recognition for their failed attempt but this is no different that any other "feature" Google deploys; i.e. deploy a feature so they can check a box then take years to actually make the feature function reasonably.

Apple doesn't need removable storage. Sadly, Android smartphones don't offer free cloud storage and require such poor workarounds.

Pitifully, the removable battery in Android-based smartphones is a cheap trick to account for horrible battery life and force users to expend more money.

This comment is made even more hilarious by the fact that Google is still trying to provide decent multi-tasking capabilities.

Siri isn't voice commands and the fact that you believe so belies your ignorance. You have failed to recognize that Apple released voice control on June 19, 2009 whereas Google needed until 19 October 2011 to have a feature that begins to compete with Siri, released on 14 October 2011, but fails to make a mark.

Since we know that all mobile phones experience attenuation, can you confirm that your mobile phone manufacturer or Google offered to accept your returned product, pay you $15 for the case of your choice or give you a case they manufactured at no cost to you?

Apple iPhone has the highest customer satisfaction.

You will ignore all the facts and bask in your ignorance. I truly pity the people Google, et al. has fooled. A rational, reasonable person would investigate and question their beliefs rather than drink the spiked Kool-Aid from Google then gloat on a forum dedicated to a competitor. Truly saddening that a person would do this.

Which is why I didn't waste time trying to rebut with a cogent argument.

I don't think it's about Google fooling him, I think he would hate anyone or anything who is winning. Relic has stated something along the lines that she always votes for the underdog regardless of whether they are in the right or not. That's probably the myopic mentality of many people. So long as Apple is overwhelmingly dominate there will be people who innately hate them. Çest la vie.

I'm often accused of being too wordy. But this^^^, my friends, is minimalism in true Apple form!!!

That was actually very good.

I don't understand that mentality. Personally, I evaluate products (especially electronics) thoroughly and purchase the best products I can afford. Currently, virtually the entire line-up of Apple products is market-leading.

My family had the Apple II, Apple IIc and Apple IIe but in the 1990s the IBM clones caught up and surpassed Apple, in my opinion. During that dark decade, I bought IBM clones. When Apple released the 17" TFT Widescreen LCD with 800 MHz PowerPC G4 iMac "iLamp" and 60 GB HDD with optional Apple Pro Speakers. With Mac OS X version 10.2 "Jaguar," I knew Apple had recovered.

No, no, no you're saying it wrong "iPhone 5, the 6th generation , now may have 4G technology in countries with 4g networks such as the US and Canada but not necessarily in your country or on your network".

That should keep government bodies who think their citizens are idiots happy.

Something along those lines could be done within the current iPhone size envelope. And Apple has shown, I think, with the new iPad that insignificant increases in size and weight are acceptable tradeoffs in new products, so I don't expect any slavish conformity to current iPhone specs or industry trends.

Likely any new form will follow function. I would not be surprised if Apple improves the grip on the sides of the phone in order to reduce the bezel width. Maybe a curved back so it can be balanced most easily in a secure grip?

A screen dimension of 1024 x 640 would give 302 ppi at 4 inches - still a retina display. That would keep the phone width down, adding only some pixels to the length where there is room to grow.

Current apps would work fine unchanged, filling the screen width while a few pixels at the top or bottom might go unused and unnoticed. An aspect ratio of 1.6 would be better for movies and browsing.

The phone would be hardly wider, possibly the same length. A bezeled back would make it fit better in pocket than the current iphone and better in hand.

The same resolution on a larger screen would of course mean lower PPI, and unlike the iPad they could not say you hold it further so its still Retina class. Add in the rumor that the next iPhone will use an enhanced A5X (by which I assume means lowered power consumption through lower clocks and on-die RAM unlike the iPad), and I'm thinking there will be a resolution doubling. That again would lead to easy scaling.

Another year with the same CPUs would be a bit disappointing though.

4.3" is hard to use with one hand IMO, 4" like my Nexus S would be perfect if you ask me.
