Yep, they were so disappointed that they went out in droves to buy it, right?

Clearly, actual consumers were not disappointed at all. It was all the nerd-blogging that was disappointed because they had such high expectations based on the rumors THEY created.

ForumViewer: I am not saying that the iPhone 4/4s is a bad phone, just the fact that I've noticed the mentality of some *not all* Apple buyers that, "It's an Apple product so it's automatically the best". However, I agree with you that some Android phones can really be a hit or miss. But as stated, you really don't have the same variety with Apple phones as you do with Android devices, so browsing through multiple reviews to find the best one isn't applicable. With android you might be looking for high battery life, speed, size, or many other things that Android phones can offer. With Apple you are really just stuck with 1 phone, and I have to admit a great one at that. So, coming off of your point a little, Apple buyers already know what they want, so there is no reason to look for reviews. Because there is no variety, like there is with Android phones.

Lastly, please don't think I am "hating" on the iPhone, the iPhone 4S destroys the majority of Android phones. It's really just a personal preference.

Out in droves? Lets put some numbers on it. 4M sold in the 1st three days. On track to best the kinect as the most successful consumer product launch ever. (by the 1st week sales it already has, but lets see what kind of legs it has) Wall Street has Apple selling 26M iphones this quarter. Wait times are over a week and currently Best Buy is sold out in most cities.

A good majority of people who buy Apple products:

A) Don't really know that what they are buying isn't the best around

B) Are so loyal to a brand name they do not care what the product is, if it has the Apple logo on it, they will purchase it

C) Will go into deep amounts of debt to continuously buy the newest Apple products, even if it's a rehash (iPhone 4S, obviously)

Your argument is quite invalid when the people buying the products are borderline cultists.

The iPhone 4S is a new product, it just wasn't a new design which is what everyone was expecting due to the "leaks" of the iPhone 5 prototype.

A) It's pretty top notch
B) That doesn't happen
C) Very few would make a mistake like that

People just like the UI that iOS offers, they like the experience.

If only Android phone manufacturers could market their products like that, right?

(Maybe in a million years)

Apple fans and everyone else where waiting for a New iPhone. Once a Sheep you are always a Sheep. Just because they did not get a iPhone 5 that did not stop the Sheep from getting the 4S because to their view even if it not as good as they hopped its still better then anything else and best Apple has to offer and to them having the best Apple Phone is more important.
