IMO Out of all of this we are getting competition and samsung is trying to win the battle but people are hung up on Iphones since it was really the first smartphone.


Edit: Plus if apple employs 60k people and samsung employes 360k people. I'd rather see samsung win period because of more jobs. Even if they aren't american jobs.


Ummm........what?

The iPhone 4 is free on 2 year contract. And the iPhone 4S is $99 on 2 year contract and frequently goes on sale for lower than than that.

inb4 the iPhone 4 or 4S isn't competing with the SGS3 which makes your argument invalid.

I just want to point this out. I don't know about prices in the US or Canada or anywhere else, but



Both on exactly the same plan, yet the iPhone is made out of a much more expensive material (plastic (specifically PVC which is what it's made out of is $0.04 per pound) being $88.16/metric ton whereas aluminium ($0.47 per pound) is is $1035.88/metric ton) is cheaper and in real world usage there isn't really any difference between the two other than the OS it runs and screen size with is annoying to use everyday if you have human hands.

You might want to re-read his comments. The sarcasm is quite apparent and just flew right over you.

I know the iPhone 4/4S aren't anywhere near the same raw spec power as the SG3. Does the mass of people besides those on OCN know that? No. The mass of people out there want a phone that isn't fully plastic (SG3) and don't even care about the specifications of the phone. That's why the iPhone 4/4S still compete with the Samsung Galaxy S3. At least realize how the market works, even if you have some sort of stupid vendetta against Apple. I honestly don't care. They make good quality products, but that doesn't mean that I have to "rage 'n hate" on them like every Windows/PC user. They have their niche, let them have it.

Its almost comical watching the hypocrisy in these threads. Does Apple's products affect you in a life-altering way? No.


Then why in hell do you care?

I'm pretty sure that isn't sarcasm. Anyone who understands how the market works knows why Apple phones (even older ones) are doing just as well as much more powerful slightly cheaper in some cases phones such as the iPhone 4 vs SGS3. Kinaesthetic explained how the market works pretty well. If people cared more about raw power then I am 100% sure the market share would be in favour of the Galaxy SX phones rather than the iPhone X.

Whenever I buy a new phone i always ask the same thing:
"Can i Bludgeon someone, instagram the result and then call 911 with it?"

Sadly the answer tends to be a sounding no, which is why I ask:
"No because it's illegal or no because it won't take the beating?"

Since the answer on both of those question is a no to i rarely by a new phone, I'm currently wielding ZTE Blade. It might not be fast and it might not be more durable but it sure as Dynatac cost less.
So in essence this import band won't affect me, I'm not an Usanian nor would I buy aluminum blob with a giant safety hole in the front.

ZTE Blade, For all your neopagan blood rites!
