It doesnt make me regret buying a Galaxy Nexus a few months ago
Really.. its not a horrible phone but I also just feel it should have been better...
-The screen is weird, sure its finally 16:9, but its an odd resolution instead of a standard resolution, Why Apple? You could have sourced any number of 720p displays but instead you went all different on us... Its not the biggest screen on the market, Its not the highest pixel density on the market, and its not even equal to the competition in terms of resolution if you want to be VERY pedantic (Since the competition runs 720p displays(
-The processor is not that much better than whats out there
-The battery life isnt really THAT impressive, its obviously been cut down because of making the phone slimmer (thus smaller battery) 8-10 hours.. Eh... Motorola is offering what.. 21 or something with theirs?
-New proprietary connector, Actually from a business standpoint this could be the worst thing, Because now everyone has to either buy an adapter to make their existing accessories work (At $30 a pop too) OR they have to buy all new accessories, For some users the accessories might be what was keeping them with an iPhone, having to either adapt or buy all new stuff could be the final nail in the coffin that drives them to the competition
This aritcle sums up why a lot of folks are disappointed on it
Apple just isnt offering anything the competition isnt anymore, which would have been fine back in the 3G/3GS days when Apple had little competition, Apple used to have a great combination of power, performance, good screen, rediculously good battery life, good OS and good design, Now its all just good design and everything else is more "Ticking the boxes" as opposed to pushing the envelope...
Its not that its a bad phone, Its just a phone relying too much on "Being THE iPhone" to sell now... which is bad when the competition is matching and outdoing Apple now
Which means yes, I think Apple has lost its magic...
