While it was temporary (the 4S's release saved Apple's ass from remaining #2) it has already happened and is evidence enough that it CAN happen.

Lolllll and BARELY.

The irony… :doublefacefalm:

I'm sure Jansport sells more bags than Louis Vuitton. It's not about numbers it's about status and recognition dummy. rolleyes.gif

Movies, Music, Art and the mainstream media are synonymous with iPod, iPad and iPhone. When people talk about a phone on TV they say iPhone, when they talk about a music player they say iPod. What you will never hear them say is "Samsung" or "Andriod".

Seriously, stop trying to defend a futile argument, but I guess it's futile, of me, trying to explain to a person who is completely clueless about status, recognition and class.

It's like trying to convince someone to buy a Hyundai Genesis V8 over a BMW 750Li. Who cares if a Hyundai has higher sales numbers? Who cares if it's cheaper? Who cares if it has better features? Who cares if it has the best warranty? Why? Sorry, but it's something you'll never understand.

When do you guys think the Galaxy Note 2 or Quad Core equivalent will come out?

I'm upgrading to the Note over the Nexus, but man, there are some really Quad Core phones that were announced. I'm gonna be renewing my contract for 3 years, so gotta make it worthwhile.

fyi i do own a wacom and i use it regularly for photography, so i'm not some ignorant fool ranting about how ****ty styluses are. i just see multi-touch as a better tool for handheld devices than what the note is doing with a dual interface.

i like what the note is doing because its moving handhelds from content consumption like watching movies and listening to music to content creation. now, i got quoted several times here mostly about my issue with accuracy, which depends on a lot of things. who's to say that multi-touch can't be as sensitive and as good as a stylus (or better!).

i'll give two examples of how the iphone got rid of the stylus while retaining accuracy and usability. first it was the hold to scroll which got rid of the TINY scrollbar on the right side that needed a stylus to manipulate on earlier touch screen interfaces. second, it was the ability to type on a screen while retaining feedback with the popup letters as you type them which was a big hurdle for people who are used to typing with physical feedback (aka blackberry users).

none who quoted me answered the questions and issues i posted about styluses. i'll add one more: when using a stylus, how do you pinch zoom?

ps: i'm really waiting for those answers.

That screen size is so 5 years ago! biggrin.gif

While Apple is still stuck at 3.5", I'm getting a 5.3" Super Phone.

They came up with some "innovative" idea, and are pushing it as the most important feature a phone can have. Meanwhile, most users won't ever use the feature. Apple has done this forever. Take, for instance, the iPad. I am convinced that having one is completely useless for most of its owners. My wife has one, and she uses it to go on the internet. She also has a Macbook which would do the job better and just as conveniently. She has to use Macbook for everything else such as photo editing.
My point is thus: Tablets are a mostly useless "innovation". The only reason why anyone owns one is because of Apples' insane marketing abilities. So, other manufacturers have to race to catch up with the "innovation", and Apple is heralded as being a great innovator. The other companies probably thought of making Tablets, and decided it was stupid because Laptops make 100x more sense.
This also applies to other Apple innovations, such as button-less devices. My Samsung screen doesn't have buttons, which sucks, because old fashioned buttons are so much easier to use than touch sensors. The only reason why the screen has sensors over buttons is because Apple did it, advertised it as being important, people bought into it, and now every manufacturer must follow.

You forgot to add that an ipad is the most expensive child pacifier in the history of western civilization!

Maybe if they didnt have a 'trained' user and just some chick who was given the phone 5 mins earlier it would be half fair.

The iPhone user could just go find apps on the app store that can do those things...

Personalised Birthday Message - Just type "birthday message" into the iTunes store

Directions - Find My Friends

Powerpoint Editing - Keynote

There's a part of me that screams "Oh yeah!", but I don't think it'll actually be practical for me to have such a large smartphone. I couldn't say without using it for a time. But congrats on it anyway, it looks pretty awesome.
