Why I hate the iPhone 5 and despise anyone who thinks it's "cool and innovative"

I've been meaning to write this article for a very long time. I literally HATE the iPhone 5, because ultimately when it boils all the way down, there is nothing innovative and cool about it. If we time traveled back to 2010, then I would think the iPhone 5 is pretty cool, but sadly, it is 2012.


The "Innovative" 4 Inch Screen 

Whoa.... the iPhone 5 has a 4 inch screen!?!?!?!?!?!? SO INNOVATIVE I CANT BELIEVE IT - said no one ever. The HTC evo came out almost 3 years ago, and it had a 4.3 inch screen, not to mention that is was actually 4.3 inches from corner to corner, all they did with the iPhone is stretch it longer. It is not wider at all, just taller with yet another "innovative" feature, an extra row of apps on the homescreen.... truly mind blowing technology Apple makes, said no one ever. 


The "Innovative" LTE

This is probably what makes me most mad about the iPhone 5. LTE has been around for almost a year and a half now... in an ideal world, the iPhone 4S should of had LTE, because at that time was when we saw a surge in LTE devices coming out, however, Apple being Apple, held out on the technology, because quite frankly, they suck, and for some reason, people still buy they're phones anyways.


 The iPhone 5 copied a few tricks from the almost 1 year old Galaxy Nexus (my current phone)

Let's make a list of things that the iPhone has taken from Android, or more specifically, my current phone, the Galaxy Nexus. Let's see, multitasking is the first thing. People don't realize that the Android OS has been multitasking for almost 4 years now, and not to mention Android also has had a notification pull down for 4 years too. Another thing, panoramic camera.... My phone (Galaxy Nexus) and most Ice Cream and JellyBean phones have been doing it for a long time now. Overall, it just blows my mind how ignorant apple fanboys are. The iPhone 5 doesn't even have NFC, but I'm sure that next iPhone will have it and people will think they are so cool. I laugh in people's face who try and tell me the iPhone 5 is the best phone on the market. I have countlessly made so many people feel like idiots after I basically tore they're "innovative" phone to shreds. I am begging all of you, please dont waste youre money on the iPhone 5. If you want to be stuck in 2010 of phone technology, then by all means go for it. But what I ultimately boils down to is, do you want something you think is "cool", or do you want the best thing for you're buck. I will never own an iPhone unless it is the best phone on the market, and in that case, I never will. My next article will be suggestions on phones to buy now. Android or Die :)


  1. "Should of"? Really?


  2. As proud Android user and Galaxy S3 owner, I can only say you are the worst example of Android fanboy.

    1. I think the author did a pretty decent job, and considering all of us being android owners, can you blame him for disliking the iPhone?

  3. Well, the CPU of iPhone 5 seems to be the best on the market. Ecosystem is also a point and LTE models on Android is very very rare.
    Proud to use an HTC Desire HD running JellyBean.

  4. Author, get a life. It's just a phone. Go get a girlfriend or something to occupy your time.

    1. well i have a girlfriend, and work 30 hours a week, and go to school full time, so i do have a life? why dont you get a life and go troll somewhere else
