quote: In any case, Verizon said they'd refund overage charges so other carriers ought to, as well.
quote: What should be done is to send a giant bill to Apple.
quote: I think the Carriers should foot the bill. Did they not test the device before they sold it?
quote: But MS doesn't make the world's most expensive, and most defective, consumer electronics devices. Apple does.
quote: Comparing the XBox to any smartphone also is weird given that it is a static platform that hasn't changed at all since 2005.
quote: As far as product support goes, compared to other smartphone vendors Apple is in the lead
quote: As for signal issues, I went caseless with an iPhone 4 for over two years and never had "grip of death problems". I took a picture of the sky with my iPhone 5 to test it out and I had no purple artifacts. I took another one just now and the sun was blown out and white.
quote: All of these things that people here harp on has never been a problem for me.
quote: The iPhone 5 is currently the most powerful smartphone on the market while also being one of the smallest, and overall it works great.
quote: The defective 360's haven't been a "mainstream" device since 2005.
quote: It's so non-relevant to this discussion only an idiot would bring it up in the first place.
quote: This is called "myopic" and counts for nothing. People ARE having issues. And given your obvious bias, we cannot even count on you to have not just made this stuff up.
quote: lol why are you advertising in the middle of a conversation? Do you get paid for this cheesy bs?
quote: My launch 360 RROD died as did its replacements .
quote: It was somewhere close to 60% in 2009, which is insane.
quote: We are talking about degrees of failure though, and for Motoman to say that Apple ships the most defective hardware is asinine (standard) given that their defect and return rates are nothing close to what Microsoft and Sony have had in the past.
quote: Antenna problem. Your holding it wrong.
quote: Chipped paint. That's typical.
quote: Yellow screens. Give it time, just the process.
quote: Purple haze. Your pointing it wrong.
quote: While none of the problems are at the MS severity level, they are real and are legitimate issues that Apple ignored. Your anecdotal evidence that just because you can't reproduce those issues doesn't make them less real than the numerous reports of Xbox failures while my consoles work fine. There is an issue with Apple's quality.
quote: Defect and return rates aren't even close, single digits versus high double digits.
quote: The new iPhone hasn't even been out long enough to HAVE any reported "rates" in the first place.
quote: MS software doesn't blow up in your pocket and set you on fire.
quote: MS software doesn't cause your phone to not be able to make phone calls.
quote: MS software doesn't make the camera on your phone make everything look like Smurfs.
quote: MS software doesn't cause you to rack up thousands of dollars in data fees because your phone didn't correctly switch from cellular to wifi.
quote: You're comparing Apples to oranges this time. And if you think I'm some kind of MS fan, go and look at my Win8 posts among other things.
quote: An extreme exaggeration. Unless you are trying to take pictures of people standing on the edge of the sun. Then perhaps you are right. I've never noticed this problem, nor do I anticipate ever running into it.
quote: but please keep cherry picking.
quote: I took a picture of the sun, no purple haze.
quote: The original comment about exploding batteries was in regard to Sony
quote: And just because you have an iP4(s) with IOS6, and don't get the purple glare.. or don't get the cellular data overages while on wifi.. doesn't mean these problems don't exist -- they exist exclusively on the iP5.
quote: Yet the brainwashed masses continue to throw money at Microsoft for its broken products, and its closed proprietary ecosystem.
quote: but extreme LOL @ quoting a neowin poster in a DT article
quote: Honestly, it might be a great thing if Apple chooses not to as it would probably be the biggest disgrace and fumble the company has comitted and hence good for breaking Apple dominance.
quote: a Telstra customer blew through 5GB of data in just one week resulting in an A$1300 ($1,330) bill. A Vodafone customer is said to have used 20GB which was good for an A$6000 ($6,140) bill
quote: It's called good customer service.
quote: Carriers are a company in the business of providing a service, which in turn they expect to earn a tidy profit from...Carriers absolutely want you to go over your monthly allotment because the price/service ratio scales up very quickly, increasing their profits. The carrier networks can handle quite a few people exceeding their "allotments" and paying more for it, if you complain, hey you signed the agreement.
quote: iPhobes don't care about Apple consumers, they hate them and despise them
quote: looks like the galaxy has more issues than iphone to worry about!http://www.watoday.com.au/digital-life/mobiles/iph...
quote: Man - get a fucking life before it's too late. Really :)
quote: Q: I love my Black & Slate iPhone 5, but I've been seeing some scuffs, scratches and marks throughout the band around the phone along with many others. What should we all do? Any plans to fix this? Phil Schiller: Any aluminum product may scratch or chip with use, exposing its natural silver color. That is normal.
quote: Meanwhile in the real world…..
quote: Guys - you are flogging a dead horse - nobody is listening
quote: I only come here out of curiosity
quote: So you're basically saying that Apple customers are so dumb they'll buy Apple products no matter what and will continue to do so no matter how crap they are?
quote: You don't buy Apple products but feel compelled to post comments about them.
quote: And you post on Android articles but don't use them, and you feel compelled to spew your bullshit...
quote: blah blah blahAnd you think people actually care what you think.
quote: Apple's already been humiliated in the phone arena; it used to have a commanding lead over Android but now it's an also-ran. I'm sure you have plenty of stats to 'prove' otherwise but ultimately all that matters is that far more phones are sold running Android than are sold running iOS.
