I have a charger at home, a car charger and one at my desk. I just plug it in if it gets low.. simple as that.

Never really had an issue of being w/ a dead phone for more than like 2 hrs max and that was 1-2 times ever. and usually due to me not planning a head and charging the phone over night like a tard.

It might and probably will if I am looking at Apple's given spec from their site.
I am not saying that. The Maxx was made to have huge battery life as a key feature. No one denies that lol.

Right, all the android phone owners. The 'entire' net. lol. No. 98% of which have never used an iphone, held one, or can afford one. Yeaaaa. Most of those people complaining won't buy one anyways, and Apple doesn't care. Those people can't afford the high end Android or iPhone, so it's not their customer base anyways.

Where do you think the vast majority of the Android market share comes from? Crappy-a$$ free or $20 phones from the carriers. AKA, the iphone iPhone 3GS from 3 years ago beats.

How can you guarantee that without knowing anything whatsoever about the specs of the iPhone?


thats like me throwing out the blanket statement that I can beat a Mustang in my BMW.


what mustang? what kind of race? what details.

the S3 is listed as having 800 hours of standby time however many people are reporting losing 10% battery per hour in standby mode out of the box. Certainly I can tweak the phone to get more battery life. but so what?

Apple is advertising 255 hours of standby time but the difference is their phone will actually do it. I haven't seen a single report of someone getting 800 standby hours out of any android phone ever.

The only time my phone is seeing excessive use is at my desk at work or in my car as navigation. other than that my phone mostly is in idle state.

any phone will die quickly under heavy use I realize that. (and thankfully my phone is near a charger when i use it heavily as I have a charger at home/work/car) and will continue to have 3 chargers for all my phones.

I'm not impressed with the new iPhone.

I'd buy one for the wife though if apple didn't piss me off with their lawsuits.

Used to recommend iPhones to my non techie friends. Not anymore.

Why do you care?
Samsung sues Apple today, Apple sues Samsung tomorrow, and on and on. So what? Are you mad Apple happened to win $1.02 billion to add to their $650 billion market share and $150 billion cash-on-hand?

If that's the scenario, what do you think *could* happen here:

http://gizmodo.com/5942815/how-the-n...-the-ipod-nano

Let's not even get started on that one. lol. I don't know if Apple has any beef with Nokia, none that I've ever heard, but if a lawsuit happens, pretty sure that Apple would win that one, too.

Not really.

maybe........MAYBE. half the internet. and as far as I've been able to tell it breaks down like this:


1/4) Blind haters. like you, not a single valid reason of why you dont want it other than you just dont want it. (which is fine your the same way about your american car vs my european cars, I dont care its just different tastes and your not going to agree with me regardless of how many actual facts I give you)

1/4) Burned iPhone fanbois who are still pissed they spent extra on a 4s and then realized they didnt get jackshit for it.

1/4) People who dont like Apple and have real reasons, like Kyle and his iPad and dislike of iTunes


1/4) Apple fanbois who realized the 4s was a waste of money and held out for the 5, and converted android people (like me)
