    Default iPhone 5 = Fashion Statement

    Anyone feel the same way?
    I think it's just so much sexier than the Note 2.
    I'm switching from the Note 2 despite all its great functions + pro-work abilities.
    Cause I get to use it with my element case teehee so excited. It's so sexy.

    I respectfully disagree with the notion of purchasing a smartphone solely because it could be a fashion statement. Having said that, do I think the iPhone 5 is a great looking device? Yes, I do, but I also feel the same way about the 4, the 4S and several non-Apple smartphones.

    I just gave up my note2 for a shiny black iphone5. I know exactly what you are trying to imply here.

    The only thing i miss is the note 2's monster battery backup. No matter what i did. It had around 40% juice by the end of the day. I normally drain my iphone to 3-4% towards the end of the day. But i love it more than the Note2 for sure.

    Cheers!!

    I would have to disagree with that. I wouldn't regard the Nexus 4 as the best Android device. And I really don't see what makes it better than the iPhone 5.

    We are talking about looks, but if you want to go with specs
    It is easily in the top 3 if not the best, the only other phone that has better specs than the nexus 4 is the the galaxy note 2. way better than the S3 and half the price.

    These also have better specs than the Nexus 4 in my opinion. And if you are speaking purely on looks, I don't see what makes the Nexus 4 so appealing over other phones.

    The iPhone 5 is a beautifully made device. Anyone who appreciates design would appreciate the iPhone 5 and the premium materials used to make it. I really haven't seem anything out there that would rival it. I do like the design of the DNA. Someone mentioned the Nexus 4 beats everything. From the front, the 4 is nothing spectacular. The phone isn't the thinnest. So I'm not sure why it would be regarding as better than anything out there.

    To answer the OP's question, I do think a phone can be a fashion statement and I think the iPhone has been that since the beginning.

    The iphone 5 is a nice looking device. As are many others. The Sector 5 Element case on the other hand.......

    Companies spend a lot of time designing their phone to look 'sexy'. You can't deny that the iP is a good looking device and it it looked like plastic cr@p you wouldn't see so many of them out there. Today's cell phone is as much of a fashion statement as the pair of pants you choose to wear. If you just want functionality, buy your jeans from Walmart. If you want something that makes a statement, then you'll spend more. Both will keep your legs warm.

    I personally think the Lumia 920 is a nicer "looking" phone than my iPhone 5...then again, that's literally the first time I have ever thought of the phone's in such a way, and in no way represents which phone i would prefer.

    I use my device for work and some play, but I beat the heck out of it. Yes fancy by design, but overall very very functional and I think that is what matter in today's world... Something that works and does things well.

    Actually, I think iPhones are typically not known for looking good, and the 5 is really rather hideous. It is weird proportions and looks "cheap." Indeed, all Apple products are kind of "ugly-chic," especially Macbooks with their out-of-the-eightees case colors, dark chiclet keys, and stupid glowing Apple logo on the back.

    But they *do* make a statement. They are "distinct." Just not exactly attractive.

    And definitely not sexy. It's a phone. If you think your phone is sexy, you're holding it wrong.

    I think that a lot of people would disagree with you.

    So what if it is? That's what forums are for. Talking about current devices, plusses, minuses, this/that/the other. Shutting it down because it is another Android/iPhone thread is pointless. What else do us nerds have to talk about? The two greatest smartphone OSes on the planet, and apparently their looks, as well!

    I think the majority of phones now all look alike at a distance - black slabs. The Lumia is set apart because it comes in so many colors.

    BUT...almost everyone I see has a case on his phone, so it doesn't much matter. We should be looking for sexy cases!

    The title of this thread troubles me... All tech devices including Apple's products are just that - tech devices. The moment you start to have an emotional need for them (or any material object for that matter) it may be a good time to stop and reflect.
    If you have jailbreak woes, you can iMessage me at iDonev@me.com. I'll try to help (provided I have time to spare).
