My galaxy s3 has this, it always lands on the battery side because it's so "plasticy" and "cheap",as stated by my friends.Their Iphones with aluminum corners tend to land on the aluminum corners biggrin.gif

Exactly. They complain because iPhones break easily (which they don't) then when Apple try to do something about to make the chances of it breaking even less than what it already is then they start complaining.

The best example I have seen of blind Apple hate on OCN is when Apple donated $2.5 million to charity.

Yes, because those aren't all in different price brackets, with different feature sets, marketed towards different types of people and sold in different regions of the globe. No, of course not, they expect customers to "upgrade" with every new release rolleyes.gif

I suppose you think people are supposed to "upgrade" from an ipod nano to an ipod shuffle, and that they are both in the same market segment as the ipod touch?

Yeah, some people are blindly apple-hating here, just like people blindly samsung hate in samsung threads (or in this case, you, in this thread). These people fanbois will continue to hate on everything that isn't their phone company of choice baby. Ignore them.

Those of us saying that this particular concept which this particular thread is about aren't apple haters, we are just pragmatists. Phones are not airplanes, and they do not benefit from the features found on airplanes. They DO benefit from cases. Doesn't matter what company makes the phone, the same still applies.

They still released 43 phones in the same time it took Apple to release 2 phones.

Just the flagship phones then.

iPhone 4 - June 2010
iPhone 4S - October 2011 (1 year, 4 months)
iPhone 5 - September 2012 (11 months)
iPhone 5S/6 - Q3-Q4 2013 (unconfirmed)

SGS - June 2010
SGS2 - May 2011 (11 months)
SGS3 - May 2012 (12 months)
SGS4 - TBA 2013

And who said I hated Samsung? I actually do like a few of their products, I just hate it when Samsung/whatever other company "fanboys" claim Apple is milking their customers while their beloved company which doesn't actually care about them, only their money is doing exactly the same thing.

As for that last paragraph, read this

You should also read the last bit of that post I quoted.

You realize that those are different versions of the same basic design, in different cost brackets and for different regions, right?
It is like counting Windows versions in different languages a different product per se.

They are still phones that Samsung released, and it's not really like counting different versions of Windows based on the languages, it's more like counting counting phones that have been released be a company. You should read my reply to Zero4549.

post #100 of 115
I use a thin case on my iphone, for scratch protection mostly. I have owned iphones for the last 4 years and I have only ever broken the screen on one. dropped it in a parking lot face down on asphalt. Ive dropped my other iphones alot with no breaking - it also helps not to be a clutz smile.gif

I dont like those huge otterbox cases either cuz it makes it more difficult to fit into a pocket. Iphone 5's entire design is based around it being slim, yet end users put gorilla boxes on it or whatever and it looks liked a darned walkie talkie! biggrin.gifbiggrin.gif
