[MR] iPad 3 with LTE, Quad-Core Processor and Retina Display Set for March Launch - Page 25

post #241 of 253
The battery issue on the 4S has been known for a while now. 5.0.1 was suppose to fix that but it didn't do much and 5.1 is suppose to fix it this time. I don't really know if it does or not as I'm running a 4 with 5.1 beta 3 and everything has been running fine. 5.1 should be released in the coming weeks.

My friend who had the EVO 3D and someone on here said that he didn't know how to use it, how is he suppose to use it? He did everything with it that he did with his iPhone 4 and it ended up not working for him. The main reason he got the EVO was to get off of AT&T as it's horribly slow in Florida where he lives now. He loved it the first month he had it, then he started complaining about the battery and it starting to slow down and they by the time he was going to get a 4S, he completely hated it.

My dad even got the iPhone 1 when it came out and he despised Apple products much like a majority on here do. Since then, he's had every iPhone up to the 4 and will be getting the iPhone 6 when it comes out later this year. When you have invested a lot into apps and such, it's hard to switch to a different OS. I for one won't be switching to Android or anyone else because of that. I just realized that my whole family has iPhones now, being the main reason why is because it just works. They've had everything from Motorolas, Blackberrys, and a couple Androids and now they've all switched. We've even got my grandpa and grandma on them now. Do they need everything that the iPhone offers, no, but for what they use it for, it just works. Not hating Android or anything as I find the products that have it are sometime above and beyond what the iPhone or iPad offers, but what I'm finding out why people are picking the iPhone over anything else is because of the "it just works" thing.

you know, I can live with bugs on a new os or device, it happens to the best of 'em.... what ticks me off about Apple is the attitude. The telling people that they are holding their phone wrong, the denial... just own up to it and say "we're fixing it". I think people would accept that better.
We as customers demand new tech and we demand it fast... stuff happens, bugs happen, just fix it and don't blame me for your mistakes.

I tend to agree with you there. They haven't always handled those situations well. They got a little defensive about it and ruffled customer's feathers, but in a way I can understand it too. People work really hard to put out a product that 95% of the users had no qualms with, and then there's the vocal minority "death gripping" the phone to accentuate the problem. I'm still on the 4 and in day to day talking I've never once thought about how i'm holding the phone, and I don't use a case. I can get a bar to drop if I bridge the gap on the bottom left of the phone, but it's never affected use.

I never really understood the big deal with him saying to hold it differently. I laughed my head off when I heard about it and it certainly wouldn't have bothered me if I had an iPhone 4 at the time. I could either take it back, or put a case on it. They managed to get themselves out of it pretty well though... they never admitted anything was wrong with the phone but managed to suppress the press pretty well.

Some people prefer to hold their phone the way they find more comfortable and easier to use. thumb.gif

Yeah? But I still don't see why everyone threw a bit fit about what he said. Like I said, I thought it was funny. Even if I owned an iPhone 4 I wouldn't have been offended. If the phone was good enough I'd just put a case on it, else I'd take it back.

Probably because you don't work in a repair center like I do?

Why are you making excuses for an OBVIOUS design flaw??

Because antennagate is a total joke. If it were that serious of a problem in reality, iPhone 4 would not be the worlds number two selling phone. Period.

An Apple product that gives everybody within a 10 mile radius cancer would still sell like hotcakes.

No, I don't. But I've still not heard of them on da internetz.

That'd be because everyone is making it into a big deal when it isn't.
