BUT I'll give it props on how durable the screen is
1. Most users don't miss flash, get over it. You can thank Apple for pushing HTML5 as it's now starting to gain momentum.

2. You don't need a better battery because it's already got a good battery and good battery life at that. I got a friend with an EVO and that giant Seidio battery pack and my phone still lasts longer than his between charges.

$2000, seriously?

The Apple fan base is a fan base I will NEVER understand.

Why do they pay this much, when they could just order it from Apple at a much lower price?

Or getting it for a couple hundred with a contract. Or paying the early upgrade fee, or what ever.
Wow, i might consider putting the phone up on ebay.


That would be enough for an Ipad and an ssd or 2.

If 5GB is enough, how come you got a 64GB iPhone?

You didn't address any of my other gripes. Besides, for music, I think I'm set with Google Music and their 20000 song capacity, I just signed up today. I bet Apple will find a way to block that service.

Anyway, I don't want to turn this thread into arguments. Let's let it be.

We'll see what the Prime is saying next week.
I wasn't saying you don't need more than 5GBs of storage? I was talking about iCloud. Out of curiosity, why didn't you go with iTunes Match?

1. It's not available yet.

Quote:
iTunes Match will be available for U.S. users late in October, but international users will have to wait. No announced timeline for release in other markets is yet available, and it will probably take some time for Apple to work out the licensing deals necessary for that to happen.
I'm in Canada, so...

2. It's $24.99 a year.

Google music is free right now for a 20,000 song limit, iTunes Match will be 25,000. I doubt I will use beyond 20,000 songs.

I'm loving Google Music now, no way I'll ever use the 20,000 song capacity.
