What I wonder is how people become so devoted to their cell phone brand they are almost as zealous as the posters in the God threads! Whatever the methods one day this will go down as a case model in future marketing classes.

Don't worry they'll just keep suing Samsung.


'Apple' will be changing their name to 'iTrolls' in accordance with their current corporate brand image.


Sad but true. How the mighty have fallen...pretty petty response to a seeming inability to remain competitive/frontrunner. Jobs must be rotating.

i wonder if Samsung is busy drawing up some knock off products right now to try and cash in on apple's iphone 5 incoming success

Do yourself and your wallet a solid and pick up a new iphone 4s at a much discounted price. Great phone, i promise you won't be disappointed in getting it over the just slightly improved iphone 5. Spend the savings on the components for the 4s that you will need anyways.

my wife already has the 4s, how would that look if I just matched her. don't you know a marriage is a competition?

On paper I like Lumia 920, I prefer larger screens. the weight and size is not an issue, but might be too much for female buyers..

if you prefer a lighter and smaller screen, iphone5 is fine. but the lumia has higher pixel density.

LOL alpha male. My gf has the latest Samsung phone while I have quite possibly the most antique craptacular (a M620 ) one that you can get (no worries about the flip button I never use the other side) but it none the less makes calls and can do text and can even take pictures or work as bluetooth if I really wanted it to and there's no way in hell I would trade - my phone has two batteries and can go a week without being charged.

Nope though I do remember people stomping over each other so they could get cabbage patch dolls for Christmas. I didn't understand the obsession with fads then I and still don't.

Those phone makers sure are expensive unless you bet on the current unfavorite but boy of boy does that anticipation to walk into another three year contract ever make me LOVE holding them dividend paying telecoms!

Be sure to talk, text, and surf a lot!

In their defence, apparently it's great for accessing a network remotely when you want to do work outside the office.

Dude don't buy Bose earphones...You can't get much better value with other brands. Also, I'd be genuinly shocked if these Apple earphones were high end. Their previous ones were utter garbage.

Go in store. The website is usually a mess. You'll be able to resolve any contract conflicts that may arise in store (upgrade eligibility, fess, etc).

haha.

You have zero concept how the smartphone market works right now. Basically, there are 3-4 big companies (of which Apple is one) and they are constantly one upping eachother. The IPhone5 will probably be the best phone on the market. Then 2 months later somoene will release something better. Then 2 months after that an even better phone will come out.

Currently phone like the OneX and the Galaxy S2 blow the IPhone 4s out of the water, as it is a 1 year old phone.
