post #41 of 84
Ok it looks fine... As if anyone really cares what their phone looks like anymore. Metal and glass im various iterations...

Does this thing perform authentication and location service for payments, unlocking doors, etc?

Does this have 160gb space and the ability to alter tags for my lossless music collection?

Can it last 24 hours in full usage while also running bluetooth?

I am a long apple investor but I have been waiting a LONG time for my wishlist to be fulfilled and getting impatient. i know i am not the only one.

I want a premium phone with all of the above requests and I will pay for it.

LOL

I like the blurb on the Goophone:

"New Goophone i6, Forward thin, light design

Goophone has always been forward thinking . With new design, this new Goophone i6 you have never seen it. Goophone i6 is super slim body, Because of the better processor and flash, so Goophone i6 feels solid and smooth operating experience by your hand."

Yeah, guys, forwarding thinking all the way and a class act all round...

I had an interesting thought the other day. Remember before the glass multi-touch trackpads came out on the Macs, the rumor was that these new trackpads would have displays behind them, mirroring the main screen? Didn't happen of course—they were just multi-touch screens without the display.

What if now, with the rumored 12", fanless, clickless-trackpad MacBook (probably be too expensive for a MacBook Air), they're finally going to do it, and the 5.5" "display" is really a trackpad with the display? Could this be Apple's answer to the touchscreen notebooks like the Surface—all the advantages of a touchscreen plus you don't have to hold your arms in midair, block the screen with your hands, and get smudges all over it?

It could also explain why we've never seen any pre-production parts—nobody's trying to get the scoop on the latest Mac, it's iPhone all the time! (Sadly).

I like how the top and bottom bezels are black and under the glass to make it match. It will make me switch back from my Moto X - if this is real. I must admit, Apple makes the best hardware.

This is a hoax. No way this phone is an apple phone. It looks to unfinished and un-elegant. I believe this is the Samsung alpha or F or whatever it is.

What a terrible looking device. Apple would never have the top screen attach to the phone in such a way that it formed a lip like these pics show. Apple would have the screen flush with the sides.

 

This isn't an Apple device.

There is absolutely ZERO chance that Jony Ive designed something that looks this utterly horrendous.  I agree with those here who've been saying it looks like a cheap Chinese knockoff device.

The first iPhone and the iPhone 4 were the best designs in my opinion.

As for the 5 and 5S, pictures never did justice to them. It was when I saw the 5 physically that it felt like the elegant Apple hardware I love so much.

The 5c actually looks great too, like a throwback to the 3G and 3GS.

No matter what the new phone looks like, it is something I'll be wanting the moment it is announced and I'll be getting the moment I can get my hands on it!

Tbh I like it on the bottom and due to component build and weight most of the time in loose pants or shorts the phone would often settle in my pocket upside down anyway which often ruined my headphone cables prior to the change to the bottom maybe that's partially the reason for the change and keeping it that way

It looks like a device or screen sitting inside a dummy shell. The recess on the lightning port is too deep. There appears to be a gap between the screen and the shell as well.

If you'd referred to the ring in the first place, the misunderstanding wouldn't have arisen in the first place. No need to jump down his throat.

Because the problem with speakers on a tablet is that there isn't a wide enough soundstage? The sounds-like-banging-on-a-tin-cup 1/2" speaker turned sideways fed through a metal grate is okay as long as there are two, discrete sources of distorted din?

 

May I suggest a pair of even modest quality headphones instead?

If you don't wish to suffer hearing loss, it's better not to wear headphones, so ClemyNX suggests a better solution.

Maybe even a portable Bluetooth speaker. I'm not a fan of Bose headphones but their Soundlink Mini is pretty gosh darn good, though a little on the expensive side. I have to give the Nokia 360's the best buy for all around price to sound ratio, their fantastic. You can even pair two of them together, their battery also lasts longer then any speaker I have ever owned.

I really hope it is rounded; it would make it much more comfortable to hold than the iPhone 5/5s.

1) I like to keep my phone upside down in my front pocket so when I grab it, I have the home button as a grip location, safer not to let it slip plus it is in the proper orientation to view the screen when just checking the time, hence the earphone plug is a better fit pointing up when it is in my pocket.

 

2) If the jack is on the top, the wire is hanging down sometimes getting in the way of using the screen,

 

3) If the plug is on the bottom, gravity allows the wire to naturally flow downward instead of on the top and bending back putting stress on the insulation where it connects to the plug.

 

All minor points true, but still a better design to have it on the bottom in my opinion. I'd be interested to learn why you would prefer it on the top.

 

I thought I preferred it on top until I did some "evaluating" while sitting on the bus (it was that or stare at my navel). I made the same kinds of observations you did -- maybe not exactly the same points, but similar enough -- and ultimately decided that the state of my navel was a better subject of my attention than coming up with reasons that one location was better than another for a headphone jack!

 

It may be of no interest to you, but I'm glad that J. Ive thinks about every little detail; there is always a reason for a decision.

Headphones don't cause hearing loss any more or less than any other sound hitting your ear. Typical hearing loss is a function of sound pressure level combined with length of exposure. In other words, listening too loud for too long. There's no rule that says headphones must be turned up too loud. Just use common sense. If you don't wish to suffer hearing loss, don't subject your ears to high sound pressure levels for extended periods of time.

Because the only advantage to stereo over mono is spacial diversity, and there is none when the speakers are separated by less than an inch.

 

And, because the tiny little shitty speaker on a phone is quite obviously not intended for listening enjoyment. It exists for ringtones and alerts and convenient quick listens. If you're actually listening to music that way there are concerns much, much greater than whether you're hearing the hi-hat in the correct spacial perspective. Like whether that solo is being played on cello or chainsaw.

 

Seems like both of these issues are rather painfully obvious. Are you trying to be funny? If so, you really need to hone your craft.

Not so.

 

It's very easy to damage your hearing by wearing headphones in noisy environments, by turning them up too loud. Listening through speakers, if you are at home, you are likely to be in a much quieter environment than when commuting, and so are much less likely to listen at a damaging level.

 

It's no good saying just use common sense; it's very hard to tell what is too loud in a noisy place. In Europe, there is a setting to limit the iPhone's headphones volume, but that setting will be much too quiet for many situations. Therefore, the safest course of action is to avoid using headphones wherever possible.

You're drawing the right conclusion but for the wrong reason. It's not the headphones that are the culprit, it's the environment. Using your example: if one was using speakers in a noisy environment, one would also have to turn them up too loud. If one was using headphones at home, there would be no need to turn them up to damaging levels. Your suggestion that one avoids hearing damage by using speakers is a flawed premise. You're saying that one has to turn it up to 11 to overcome commuting noise. That will be true when using speakers, too.

 

It's not the headphones that are the problem. The problem is exposure to excessive sound pressure levels. The reasons for the excessive levels don't change that.

Flawed argument. No-one uses speakers in public, unless you're feeling particularly anti-social.

Oh gosh your right, still doesn't stop the kids from doing it though. My kids favorite place to go too eat is this place called Podium in Zug, it's a favorite amongst the pot smokers and social outcasts in general because of the tolerant atmosphere. Every time we've gone, there has been at least three people pumping out their favorite jams via a Bluetooth box. Problem is, not everyone enjoys the same music, so you have techno on one end, rock in the middle and some ethnic crap at the other, by the way I'm throwing Swiss music in the mix when I say ethnic crap. Thank goodness the food is out of this world and the kids enjoy it because of the amount of other kids that are there or I would never go. The cooks are mostly students trying to get their degrees so they always try their best and it shows. Because it's a teaching restraunt the prices are very reasonable for what you get.

Here's a reason why my kids love going their;

I want which ever old fart who purposed that legislation to be locked into a room for at least 3 days and forced to listen too, It's a Small World on a loop with the volume turned up so high it causes his ears to bleed. These assholes need to stay out of my business, thankfully it's just a dialog box that states turning the volume up may result in hearing lost but it only takes one idiot to ruin it for the rest of us, to add insult to injury the little f@#$%r probably worked as a demolition technician but since some hippy organization had a stick up their ass we the consumers have to pay for it. If I want to smoke crack while doing the wobbly H with two players from the starting lineup of Manchester United, it's my prerogative. Stop forcing your shitty laws on me because you weren't laid enough, most likely ever in high school.

Now before any of you get the wrong idea about me, I'm really not that easy, I expect at least a meal and money for a cab ride, I'm a lady after all.

Those that can handle my conditions can find me at the Lowen café in Zug, don't forget, bring a friend.

So WHAT? That has nothing to do with the point! Where and how people listen doesn't change the fact that what you asserted is plainly untrue. Headphones do NOT cause hearing loss, loudness does. The fact that some people use headphones to damage their ears doesn't make headphones inherently harmful any more than some people using bridges to commit suicide makes bridges a cause of suicide. Both are a means by which people inflict harm on themselves through their own choices, and NOT a case of the means being harmful in and of itself.

 

In fact, if one were to use headphones with decent isolation, one could attenuate outside noise and actually listen at a LOWER, safer level. In that case, headphones could be said to be PROTECTING their hearing.

 

Argue around the issue with obfuscation all you want, it doesn't change the laws of physics and physiology.

Another flawed argument.

Ever since portable music became popular since the Walkman, people have been damaging their hearing by wearing headphones. Their hearing will be that much worse as a result. It's a fact of life. You can't cloud the issue by saying that everyone should use noise-cancelling headphones; they don't. Most people stick with the earbuds that come with the phone.

Clubbing and rock concerts are two areas where speakers are likely to damage your hearing. Some jobs are likely to. We often encounter daily environments which exceed safety levels, but as long as it is not too long, it's okay. The problem with headphones is that people listen for hours at too high a volume, which is what makes it worse.

So let's stop using speakers altogether !

 

More seriously, it's not because it's not YOUR usage that it's not MY usage. I like listening to videos by myself while I am at home and whether it's on my iPhone or my iPad I get mono sound which totally SUCKS. If you want to argue that stereo isn't needed I'm not even going to answer. I want stereo and I'm disappointed that Apple hasn't added it, looking that many other manufacturers have for a long time. I'm sure they'll do it eventually by the wait is annoying.
