iPhone and the Competition
I don't care if you call me a stupid Apple fanboy, or criticise me for calling myself a tech specialist when I am just a foolish Apple admirer :) But I've always believed in this: No one has yet matched Apple's iPhone in terms of technological advancement. You may ask why I am doing this: well, it's just my opinion. It doesn't try to achieve or benefit anyone and I guess that's fine. And I want you to know what you guys think about my opinion. After all, isn't that what a forum is about?
Here are two excerpts from reviews about iPhone 5s and 5 that are related to what I believe about the iPhone.
For anyone who needs copious amounts of screen space, a 4-inch display likely won't cut it, but to be fair, the 5s is the best small phone you can get -- we can't think of any other device with a display smaller than 4.5 inches that even comes close.
No other company on earth right now could, nor likely would if they could, make a device that packs as much technology into as relatively small a frame, at such high a quality, as Apple did with the iPhone 5.
iPhone 5s (which is derived from the foundation built by iPhone 5), in many other reviews, is compared against the competition in a way that talks features. And it's perfectly fine. But I wish they dedicated at least one line to how advanced this device is, compared to the competition. After all, the reviewers are geeks and tech enthusiasts. As apple-fanboyshy as it may sound, iPhone 5 truly packed industry-leading or competitive technologies into a much smaller and elegant package than anyone. iPhone 5s extends that even further, by packing some industry-beating technologies into the same design. Again, that doesn't make it the best smartphone for everyone, as no smartphone will ever be, but it is a deserve-to-be-recognised achievement that still no one has come close to. The reviews aren't doing justice to say that iPhone is losing out because it doesn't have a big display or this and that.
What do you think? Do you believe in the now-common opinions that other companies have so called "caught up" with the iPhone?
