iMore show 342: Mobile accomplishments


Damn, no discussion on Large Screen iPhone? Again, People are buying iPhone because of status in China. So Cheap iPhone just wont work. You can get a Cheap Android iPhone look alike for less then $100.

Re: "...the newly competitive mobile market..."

You mean the current two-horse smartphone market? Apple vs. Samsung?
Apple should thank Samsung for crushing all other Android handset makers.
(Especially for crushing the ones with better products than Samsung's.)

Exactly. I really don't get it either. As a former Samsung owner (S3) I don't get it. Their UI is just so not attractive lol. Their hardware is also kind of cheap feeling too. HTC makes much nicer hardware yet people don't buy them as much. *shrugs*

Most people do not buy HTC because of the Sense. Everyone I talk to hate the look Sense brings and the lag it brings to some phones as well. However, the hardware is ALWAYS amazing!

You didn't mention The Verge App. Worth a dThe second app hit after iMore for news and updates. Good conversation.

Hi Rene, I gave you a brickbat a while back for show # 339. Time for a bouquet - great show, great listen. Informed, and affirming and critical in the best sense. I hope you will pause, and consider why this show had such appeal and #339 had so little. I'm clearly not alone in this sentiment.
