    While I know it's popular to hate on whomever is at the top of the corporate pile, the iPhone is a really great phone and Apple is doing something with the internals that noone else but Samsung is doing. Each iteration of their A-series processor (of which there have only been two) have thoroughly trounced established giants like Qualcomm and TI.

    As someone who recently switched from the original iPhone 5 to an HTC One (I like playing with technology) there are a ton of small features missing from Android and from the hardware itself that really do make using an iPhone a pleasurable experience. The two biggest that I miss are the keyboard prediction of the iPhone (nothing on Android even comes close - no, not even Swiftkey) and the ability to skip tracks and turn the volume up/down from your headphones.

    Localytics claiming the 5s and 5c now account for around 1% of all activated iPhones and the 5s beating its lower end sibling three to one.

  11. What has the world come to when 9 million people in one weekend by a phone that is hardly any improvement over the previous model. Heck....what has the word come to when phones are getting so much global attention, it almost sounds like a religion.
