    Well, seeing an amount of said devices in use to give weight your claims would be nice. We just aren’t seeing that.

     

    Your standard of proof is impossible.


     

    Mmm… no, since we can pretty easily see what devices are and aren’t in use.

    <h1>Samsung handsets top iPhone for global Internet usage</h1>

    And Nokia wasn't far behind with nearly 22% of the internet traffic? Seems a bit off to me. Since they are talking about devices, I wonder what the per device average is. It clearly has to be much lower for Samsung as they sell a lot more units than Apple since they mostly sell in the budget range.

    According to Tallest Ski Samsung has not sold even 1 phone since they don't release unit figures on their financials

    I have no idea what he wrote but of course he believes they'd sold at least phone. He's seen at least one Samsung handset. What I assume he's questioning is the number of handsets, which can't be verified simply because they don't list units in a transparent manner.

    I could while away the hours,

    Conferrin’ with the flowers,

    Consultin' with the rain.

    And my head I'd be scratchin'

    while my thoughts were busy hatchin’

    If I only…

    the lack of vision is astounding.

     

    i mean really. how much more proof do you need?


    For me it would be Tim Cook holding one up at the key note or perhaps Gizmodo stealing one.


     

    I'm not inclined to put my faith in thieves.

    When they were forced to reveal their numbers in a court of law. I can't remember the exact figures, but I think the difference between the published figure and the actual figure was between a factor of 10 and 100 against Samsung's favour. It was a seismic disparity that was well publicised by Apple Insider at the time.

    Samsung sold 200,000,000 Galaxy phones

    The proof is undeniable.
    People want large phones.

    How the hell do you come up with these conclusions. Galaxy phones does not mean just the Galaxy S and Note series.

    That's a big fucking phone alight¡

    edit: I see, you oddly didn't write Galaxy S which completely altered your statement.

    So how do you explain the iPhone having sold twice as many units as the Galaxy S, that smaller cellphones trump all larger cell phones in unit sales, and Google's very own stats about the number of users with devices over 4.5" (and I'm giving you a lot of leeway there because those Large devices could be as small as 4.2" according to the stupid methodology Google uses)?

    No one has to be 6'7" to want a bigger phone. 

     

    I have used ALL kinds of phones from 2.1" to 6" phones because I enjoy things that light up and beep. 5.5" will be perfectly usable 1 handed by everyone, well, other than you and your tiny tiny hands. 


     

    Don't you realize that there was a Fatwa issued against large phones by the forum Ayatollah.    We are not allowed to prefer a large screen/photo because the 5S was the perfect size (and before that the 4S).    That was the size that God (SJ) said was perfect and there can be no change.

    So… don’t. Carry both and use HANDOFF with iOS 8. Problem solved. Leave the phone in your pocket WHERE IT WILL FIT. Use the iPad.

    But where is it stated that handoff will work iOS <> iOS? All I've seen is OSX <> iOS. Correction: OSX <> iPhone/iPad. No AppleTV anywhere mentioned, iPod touch I'm 'out of touch with'.

    Hmm, the 4.2-7" models are dropping sales numbers (Jan 2014 - May 2014) and the overal >7" is declining as well. Proof there won't be a 5.5 iPhone after all ¡

    Even though a possible 5.5" iPhone won't be my preference, I sure hope they'll release it, just to stop seeing pages like these:

    I’ve heard iPhone <–> iPad, iPhone <–> Mac, and Mac <–> Mac. I don’t see why it wouldn’t be iPad <–> iPad and iPhone <–> iPhone, too.

    Any idea where you heard Mac <-> Mac?  I've only heard Mac <-> iPhone/iPad.

     

    Handoff is even advertised as a Mac to iOS feature in Yosemite: http://www.apple.com/osx/preview/  and http://www.apple.com/osx/preview/mac-and-ios/  (doesn't preclude Mac to Mac, or iOS to iOS, but definitely doesn't suggest it either)

    It was here, so it may not have been right. I’d check myself, but I only have access to one machine with Bluetooth 4…

    I agree to the 'why wouldn't it', but simply haven't seen it mention that it does. I do have 2 Macs close enough for BT4 to see each other, but only one of the is on 10.10 and I don't feel like installing 10.10 on my main machine. Though if it keeps on raining today I'll make it a rest day (need it for a 10k run tomorrow anyway) and install it on a spare disk. Though these things should be out on the Internet, I'm just no good with Google search.

    I've been searching and can't find either confirmation or denial, and barely a mention of the question.  I can see Mac <--> Mac as being something of a niche, but I'd have thought iPhone <--> iPad would have a wider appeal.

    YOu said you would self ban yourself for 3 months if the 5.5 came out.

     

    Don't be a coward.  Pay up.


    Where is the 5.5"? You acted like a child. I will not post a message in AI from 9/9/14 to 12/9/14 only if 5.5" WILL come out in the next 3 months by Nov 18 (3 months from your post date).

    Some one lost a bet to me and cant post for 3 months.

    Apple is out for blood against Samsung and bringing the 5.5 is the death blow.

    Yeah? Who lost? The damn thing is not even announced. That means you're not winning anything.
