To most here, reasoned opinions and discussions are welcome.
I think iPhone is a decent phone, simple, practical and with good build quality, now that they have A7 processors, the competition will fire up. I am surprised that a little larger screen with Full HD resolution was difficult to achieve for Apple. I think they were so busy with the new A7 processors, the finger print (which are all impressive). I hope to see a larger Full HD screen, more RAM and a different iOS that won't persuade some of its users turn to the dark side by jailbreaking it. Some of these innovations will be made with the iphone 6 but until then, who knows, Full HD resolutions, more RAMS and other innovations from other brands will be on their way. Apple still needs another perspective for its innovations.
I disagree with the need for "Full HD Resolution" (whatever that is) on a phone -- reasonably-priced tablets are a much better vehicle to deliver HD.
Also, I think that iOS7 (which I have been using since July) is the best mobile (and dedicated device) OS out there. I think that users that root or jailbreak their devices are an infinitesimally small minority -- and tend to buy on the cheap. Sure, they are the "hobbyists" of today, and they help advance technology -- but they aren't worth targeting by Apple or any other OEM.
I would not be too relieved with the brand new A7 or the finger print sensor, there are yet many things to be done. But still, good move not to let Samsung manufacture their processors anymore. Late, but good decision. Now they should make sure that Taiwanese won't tell the secrets.
Hopefully... Once burned, twice shy!
I know this site is visited mostly by apple fans and admirers but still I should say: Even if exynos 5 octa is not 64 bit and below the new A7 , it still is a very good processor unlike many exaggerated offense to it, here in this article. I accept the fact that exynos octa has cons but it still is very good. Come on, it is not "disastrous". There are many good points with resources in this article but let's be honest, it is written with a little hate.
DED, the author of the article, has an agenda and biases -- sometimes they just simmer in the background... Other times they overwhelm the message and defeat the purpose of the article...
This one, I agree, some "hate" shows through -- but not so much to totally defeat the message of the article.
Don't get me wrong, I am not a troll, I have an iPod touch which I like very much. I never call it "disastrous" even if Safari refreshes the minimized windows everytime which makes reading offline impossible. Some apps crash, but it is not the fault of iPod, if I maintain and know how to use it, those will be seen less.
Talking about iPhone just needs other changes not only in processors but radical innovations in general, in order to persuade users like me to buy it. I hope the 6th or the 7th gen will be the one to buy.
Thanks for the article anyway, have a good day
You don't come across as a troll!
I think most of the things you are looking for will happen in iOS7, the iPhone, and iPads in 2014 -- at the same time the competition is trying to match where Apple is today.
