Unprecedented Demand for new iPhone
The Demand for The iPhone 5 Is Absolutely Unprecedented | Cult of Mac
This is funny to me. Especially with so many people constantly telling me "Apple will need to do something really amazing this year to compete against Android manufacturers"...
Nobody even knows what the next iPhone is yet, and 31% of people want to buy it, with 66% of current iPhone customers ready to buy again.

Yeah I am one of those on the fence. I don't consider going from an A4 to an A5 a drastic upgrade as I feel the i4 runs just fine. I'm fine with the current camera. I'm fine with the current design and as you can probably guess, just overall happy with the i4.
What would it take for me to lean towards upgrading? Who knows, but a bigger screen would be tempting. I am waiting for the LTE version.....maybe iPhone 6.

AT&T. I refuse to go to a provider who can't offer simultaneous voice/data. Verizon still is going to be using CDMA for a long time for voice and that will be the fallback if LTE coverage is nonexistent. That and plus I am satisfied with AT&T's coverage in Houston. I average download speeds of around 3-4 mbps and upload around 1. That's plenty fine for me. Plus I am grandfathered into unlimited data.
I donno, I always find that while playing certain games I get lag while the device is searching for signal on the subway, while music is playing, often times when I receive a notification (under iOS 5), etc... So to me, the performance could certainly be improved.
Also, take a picture of a white wall inside your house. Observe the green tinge towards the center of the photo. I'm definitely not satisfied with the camera on the iPhone 4, for this reason alone.
Finally, if Apple is not going to put notification icons in the status bar, they need something to tell you you have some items waiting in the notification center. I've been against it in the past, but I feel like with iOS 5, a notification LED is really needed.

I don't like them either but it's beginning to annoy me that you never know whether or not you have a notification, and Apple seems to have made it quite clear that they will not be adding icons to the status bar.

"There is a functionality in the Thunderbolt that allows simultaneous voice and data while on the VZW 3G network, however, we cannot promise the experience will be one that is consistent with our brand. As a result, do not reference this functionality as a benefit during your conversations with customers."
In other words, yeah it may work, but we don't guarantee it, but it should work in most instances.

I don't know if this has been discussed before, but what's the consensus on whether the iPhone 4 gets the A5? Here's one hypothetical lineup (to make it simple all devices have the same screen size):
• iPhone 5: A5, 1 GB RAM, 16/32/64 GB storage, better cameras, starts at $199 subsidized
• iPhone 4: A5, 512 MB RAM, 8 GB storage, $99 subsidized
• iPod touch 5: A5, 512 MB RAM, 8/16/32 GB storage, 3G data, starts at $349 unlocked
Data rate plans same as for iPad.
But this is kind of unrelated to the article and thread. lol~ We have a problem in the iPhone 5 forum in particular with users kind of morphing the threads together and they all become the same thing...
