seems the apple fan boys are easily riled up....calm down Egame. It's ok for people to have differing opinions. iPhones might not be "cheap plastic", but theyre still nothing special. Alot of people will agree with me, and alot of people will disagree, but it's hardly worth getting your panties tied up about it.
And i'll still say that Apple released this phone WAY too early. It's literally selling out for no other reason than it's the newest phone on the block. It offers next to nothing in the way of an upgrade over the 4S. The iPhone 5 wont be worth shit until the 5S comes out.
Oh and stop whining about patent infringement...there was a website (im trying to find it now) which listed every single patent apple has applied for. They have applied for patents on squares, circles, rectangles (this one can be found by googling "apple owns rectangle"), and other shapes. How the fuck are you going to try and patent SHAPES?!
edit: oh, and apple is patenting finger swipe motions...http://venturebeat.com/2012/06/26/apple-list-patent/
very clever. When threatened by the thought of competition, make sure you apply for patents on anything you can!
