innovate a little more? Samsung doesn't innovate anything besides putting components together and some android UI, as they get everything else from Google and TI. Apple designs everything from their A4/A5 and software iOS, retina display.

Competition is great for the consumers. Its time for Apple to step its game up with an iPhone 5.

It's about time Samsung finally passed Apple.

Hardware isn't a major factor when it comes to choosing a phone. It has more to do with software.


iOS: 1 manufacturer, 3 different models
Android: Hundreds of models from dozens of manufacturers.
WP7: Dozens of models from a handful of manufacturers


Apple isn't really competing with the other manufacturers, since people that want iOS have to buy an iPhone. If someone wants an Android phone they can choose from Samsung, Motorola, HTC, LG, etc...

Samsung doing so well against other big phone companies like Motorola and HTC is far more impressive than Apple using its iOS exclusivity to push expensive outdated hardware.

Im tired of this whole "apple dont innovate" bull.

Yes they are anti-competetive and monopolistic at times, but they litteraly started a revolution in smartphones with the first Iphone, all the other companies sorta just followed(or copied) Apples idea.

Same thing applies to the GUI OS, which, no offence, windows just copied. Ipad for example, how was that not innovative? It was "innovative" enough to start a completetly new market. Look at the ipad, now think android honeycomb tablets. Look at the iphone, now think galaxy nexus. Look at the Ipod, now think zune:-).

Get the message?

Claiming that Apple dosn't innovate is ridiculous.
Just because Apple dosnt release a new phone every month dosnt mean that they don't innovate.

If your idea of innovation is cpu clock speeds and memory size then have fun upgrading phones every month.
