The design is hideous. One thing though - why don't they make the notification led's similar to those of the MacBook Pro? I'm talking about the tiny, invisible laser cut holes. That could be rather interesting and relatively easily incorporated since they already do it on MacBooks and it wouldn't even be noticeable in the design as they're pretty much so tiny its barely possible to notice them. Do we need them though? Not sure considering the added cost.

These kinds of drop tests are SO POINTLESS. It very much depends on the angle the particular phone hits the ground as well as the bit of ground surface it hits, particularly on asphalt cause it is really uneven. Every phone has it's weak spots and it's just unpredictable when the screen will and won't crack. That's why we see some people shatter their screens from 2ft drops and some surviving 10ft. The fact of the matter is, you will probably not bee too happy using a phone which has disgusting dents and scratches all over it. On the flipside, as long as you don't shatter the S4's screen, you can always change the cover and it will be as new. Now, I'm not a fan of S4 and I would choose HTC One over it any time of the day, but it's just a matter of fact that uni-body phones are destined to become ugly, especially the black anodized versions. I mean - look at the iphone from this test, even after the first drop it looks so ugly, all the edges are scratched and it looks like the phone has went through a war. And there's nothing you can do about it apart from using a marker pen, but how cool is doing that on a 500 something pound phone?

Screen and display are two different things... They're talking about the display, the part, that is under the screen/glass, not the cover... So I believe this article is a bit misleading.

@Brooks Barnard So an iPhone 5 with a back like SGS3 would be great in your opinion?
7 months, 3 weeks ago on Current Android Owners Are 2.4x More Likely To Switch To iPhone Than Vice Versa
@Brooks Barnard I'm sorry, but I did not see any material or manufacturing price comparisons. You say it's not cheap, because it's used in riot shields, plane windshields and stuff, but forget to mention that it's a different grade anyway, just as there are different grades of aluminum, some of which are much cheaper and less durable, some more expensive and more durable. Also then you go on saying "It makes manufacturing things much cheaper and easier than metals or ceramics." So it is cheaper then? Or is it not? What are you saying? You sort of say it's not cheap, but then, emm, it is. It's like saying apples taste bad, but they taste good. Also, it's about the feel of the device. Does the SGS3 back feel better than HTC's One X? No it does not. And that is what people are complaining about. Also, the whole argument about the backs purposes and stuff is highly discussable. Different materials for clothes? Some are cheap, some are expensive. Both of their purposes are the same. Which would you prefer? Even if there were two identical pieces of clothes (in terms of color and cut) which both cost the same but were made from different materials, one of which looks cheap, but the other more expensive, which would you choose? The choice is obvious. The same applies here. To make it a bit easier - if the new iPhone 5 had a back made from exactly the same material as SGS3, WOULD YOU NOT COMPLAIN ABOUT IT? REALLY? If you say no to this, I just refuse to believe you. Think about it.
@BrainRoopull I know how carbon fiber looks, haha, no need to explain such obvious things. It can easily be made matte black so that the end result is similar to the new iPhone 5's aluminum back. With a clear coating, I don't think many people would like it. I mean, at first you would think it's really cool, but you'll get bored by it very fast. Although, it's a matter of taste. However, I don't think many people like patterns over plain color.
7 months, 3 weeks ago on Could Apple's next iPad have a carbon fiber casing?
Now clearly the coating on the carbon fiber can be made black so that you wouldn't even know its carbon fiber just by looking at it. Therefore I don't really understand the argument against it looking classy and sleek.
As long as Android phones are made of cheap plastic and other cheap materials (talking especially about Samsung here), this will be the case. Even I considered to get the 5th iPhone in a while, however, some reports of the paint coming off and camera flares have put me off a bit.
It's 600 dollars for you, 500 pounds (800 dollars) for us. So how should we feel?
7 months, 4 weeks ago on iPhone 5 scratching issues? "That is normal" states Phil Schiller, SVP of marketing
The question arises - it's four nights of sleeping on the street. If you can spend 4 nights on the street, that means you don't have a job. If you don't have a job, where the hell do you get the money to buy a new iPhone? Those are either drug dealers or stupid people on benefits sitting there... Or maybe they have rich old parents or something. Anyway, the fact is they probably have no brain and are iSheep as LV2355 mentioned...

@kanoneyez I'm not sure why you're even mentioning this here? I did not say a single thing about this feature. Also, I'm from UK. AND I probably wouldn't use this feature anyway.
8 months, 1 week ago on Would You Leave Android For The iPhone 5?
@LV2355 Wear? Less wear?! Tell me please, good Sir, how worn is your current plug on your phone?! I cannot possibly see how wear could influence anything on these types of plugs. Cause it's basically the same design as a USB plug, just a different form factor and you can plug it in either way.
And from a company point of view, why spend more money on something that only a maximum of 5% users will only consider to use, not even talking about using. Instead of spending money on wireless charging, they spent it on making a proper glass/aluminum body that makes the product much more pleasant and it just looks classy and more expensive. Spend money on features that no-one cares about like Samsung and make a cheap plastic body that everyone hates + a screen that cracks whenever you sit on it...
8 months, 1 week ago on Phil Schiller on lack of NFC, wireless charging in iPhone 5
I'm an Android fan, but I now consider switching to the 5th iPhone, cause it's finally all black. Why? Mostly cause of the high quality feel and the materials used. Samsung plastic? I mean really? WHY ON EARTH should I choose cheap plastic over all aluminum and glass? What sense does it make? + the screen probably doesn't bend when you press on it harder like on the HTC One X. Android phone manufacturers had SO MUCH TIME to catch up in the design department, but they've wasted it all caring only about the latest freaking hardware they'll put in the phone which won't be new anyway after a couple months of the flagship phones release... the camera is still better on the iPhone though, as is the screen quality. Size is a relative matter. I do have to agree that making a phone wider makes it less comfortable. And why couldn't HTC move the lock button to the right side as Samsung did? How easy is it to stretch your fingers up the long phone to the top?! Why couldn't Android phone manufacturers move the headphone plug to the bottom before Apple? Is it somehow convenient for the wire to be bent when you have your headphones plugged in and are holding the phone and texting or whatever? It is things like this that they should have thought about and thrived upon. Instead they just improved the size of the screen and put more powerful processors in. Also Android should have concentrated on getting rid of the bugs and making it's OS faster rather than letting it get slower and slower as the phone gets older. Pity really, now I'll have to get an iPhone... Don't get me wrong. I by no means am an Apple fan. In fact, I hate Apple as a company. However, unfortunately I have to admit they do know how to win over some customers...
Why would they include it? NFC? Extra cost to the company, extra problems implementing it + 90% of us don't need it anyway. Wireless charging? Again, the same thing. + for me personally I don't see how it would be convenient. Not at home at least. If I want to charge my phone in the kitchen I would have to move a second device to do that? What's the point? In a cafe? Wouldn't want to leave my phone unattended, even behind a counter... Don't see the big deal about either of these devices. The question we should ask is - why didn't they implement Android in it? haha
This is b*******. Where is the research? Where is any kind of proof or anything that would prove that exactly Apple is the reason? Apple started out making stuff in black, why wasn't the black most popular before then, but silver, according to that guy? I know you guy's don't have anything to write about apart from a few lawsuits and new iPhone leaks every day, but common, this is getting a bit ridiculous.

Only if it's waterproof. But the problem is - how much would it cost? The LG wrist phone was just so expensive no-one could afford it apart from the properly rich. With all this inside, there would be no point of ipod shuffles and nano's. iPhone sales would probably drop as well as people would buy either this watch or the iPad. Is Apple going to do it? Of course not...

Stopped reading after this sentence --> "The Galaxy’s over exposure has resulted in a loss of detail."Cam, did you know that there is actually MUCH MORE detail in overexposed areas? If you edit the picture and darken it, you will get detail out of overexposed areas. If you brighten a darker image, all you'll get is noise. Full stop.
