I don't see the big deal about the iPhone . It's more expensive . The whole being locked out thing is unreal . They don't have insurance plans .

I wouldn't own an iphone.  I have much better things to spend $700 on.  What bugs me is the people who come in for the Apple accessories and complain about the price.  They are the ones who chose to buy one without looking at the extra costs, not me. It's not my fault they got soaked by Apple.

I had someone come in looking for the power adapter to plug into the wall at the place I work at. They had an iPhone and decided to grab the Apple power adapter, a whole $32... All it is is a power adapter with a USB port on it. You can buy a huge powerboard with normal plugs and USB ports for less. Or you could just jump on eBay and spend two dollars or so on a USB power adapter. All these people getting sucked in to the allure of Apple and their overpriced products...

self delusion also comes with a delusional price tag I guess ... with Steve gone ... I wonder who is the next Prophet of self aggrandizing delusional existence ...

I don't think you can replace Steve. The guy was nuts. Every second of his breathing day revolved around the company for him. The share prices are reflecting where Apple is heading. And it's down.

More and more people are realising their practises and methods. I've even had old people (not being agist here, wait for it ;) ) who aren't the most tech savvy know about how Apple lock you into their products. Every one of them who walks through the door asking about an iPad or iPhone. Though we don't even stock them. I always let them know about Apple business practises.

Me, too!  Once the package is open, we can't touch the product if it is faulty (except iphones)  because Apple will not reimburse us for faulty products.  They want to deal with them.

And now, after the HUGE success of the Samsung Galaxy Ace II x, they are bringing out iphone minis.  Should be interesting to see how those go over.

Apple have enough money as it is!

It is great to see Samsung doing well against Apple.

I am not holding my breath for the minis ... the telcos here have a package plan for choices of apple to samsung and samsung success is ten to one ... conservatively speaking ... because we don't count the non satisfaction 30 days return policy ...

but the iPads are doing well here still ... the kids love them ... well since they are not the ones paying ... :lol:

I think the minis are a desperate move by a desperate company.  But, that is just my opinion.  Lol.

I haven't even heard of them until they were mentioned here.

Apple make things bigger or smaller and call it innovation. Or just use their marketing ability to claim "I'm first" on something that already existed long before. Face palmed at their presentation at the WorldWide Developers Conference.

I finally got my new S4... I love this thing. I may be a bit biased though considering that I upgraded from the original Motorola Droid to this. That's kinda like going from from an old 386 processor to an i7 processor. ;-)

Posted 27 June 2013 - 05:51 PM

has anyone got any thoughts on Samsung's Galaxy S4 Zoom, which has a slightly different spec to the S4, a bit less processing power, screen is not 1080p but on the plus side it packs a 16Mp camera. for looks and style it looses style compared to the S4, but what you gain is one of the best camera phones out there?. am about to get a new phone, i've always be a fan of substance over style and im in the market for a smartphone with a great camera. im not sure if the Zoom is it? hence why im asking on here to see if anyone else has a view on the phone and its abilities.

out next month July here in the UK.
