You know there are many more problems in the world that are more worthy of being deemed as humanity failures before someone's choice of a mobile phone?

Why are so many people against people wanting to buy the fastest (hardware) phone on the market? I understand it isn't #1 in every single category (and neither is any other phone, so lame argument) but it is at the top in more categories than only perhaps one or two other phones.

It also includes features not found on other phones such as Siri and the very well integrated cloud. It's sad that so many people are trying to use arguments that perhaps fit with previous models but not this one. It is still one of the best built and fastest phones available.

That's the problem.

It's not the fastest (hardware) phone. Neither does it include features not found on other phones such as Siri [and a notification bar - as I hear people state]. These features are and have been around previously. Good features? Yes. New features? No. Siri isn't even new.

Do I think it's a good phone if [not] coming from an iPhone 4? Absolutely. Is it for me? Absolutely not.

Wow, I had no idea how many people had a grudge against Apple products and Apple consumers. I've never bought an Apple product in my life, but decided to buy the iPhone 4S because not a single Android phone looked appealing to me, and now all of a sudden I'm being called a sheep, retard, and blind idiot.

I can't believe how much extra time people have on their hands.

I'm typically an apple hater, but I would have seriously considered the new iPHone, if it had LTE...

I would be really interested to see how many of these were verizon sales, and also if they were sold in a market where LTE is available. I think anyone that lives in a LTE market, but locked themselves in a 2 year contract on 3G, is going to be disapointed in a few months.

I find that voice command on my phone works perfectly fine in the rare times I care to use it... Siri doubling as glados/cleverbot is cute and all, but how does that help functionality? Dropbox works quite well for those with their head in the clouds. Ios may feel more "polished" because apple makes the whole thing one large app drawer, but I like being able to theme my os and add widgets. Also, I pity the fool who got the iphone 4s on verizon/sprint and their craptacular ev-do rev a 3g networks. Or for that matter att's fast but unreliable hspa. The only decent data connection you'd ever get is when it can actually get a signal from att, or wifi. What an amazing phone...

Not really; you give the people far less credit than they deserve.

A relatively small percentage will actually know the specifics to the hardware; but everyone buying the phone understands that the iPhone is the one with the best music management style, the largest app collection, the simplest and most recognizable OS - while also being (arguably) the most developed -, a true AI and voice recognition software, excellent build quality, outstanding battery life and great hardware - being able to handle all of the previous features seamlessly.

So yes, they might not know how many cores the CPU has, or the architecture of the CPU, or the amount of RAM on the phone. But people know what the phone is capable of.

Currently, if you look to other phones available and their pricing; the Apple iPhone is not unreasonably priced - I don't know why people are saying it's overpriced. And it is one of the most desirable phones on the market based on features (hardware, software, etc..).

Apple does not market to "technophobes." Coincidentally, technophobe means someone who fears technology. No matter how simple a laptop or a phone is, it is considered technology, and so a "technophobe" would not approach any of these products - whether they are easy to use or otherwise. Besides, Apple markets simplicity and nothing else. Just because people want simplicity does not mean that they fear technology.

Also, the Apple iPhone 4S is the best most powerful phone currently on the market. So I have honestly no idea what you are talking about.
