iPhone: Shine on you crazy diamond!
Samsung Galaxy Note, S2, S3, Motorola Droid RAZR; shout it out as loud as you can! But the iPhone is iPhone. No matter how customizable UI Google tries creating, no matter how many free apps are being made available in the Android market; it doesn’t get better than that goddamn iPhone.
I personally own a Galaxy S Plus and have used the Galaxy S2, Galaxy Note to a great extent. I am also eagerly waiting for May 31st to come for hands on the S3. But that still doesn’t stop my craving for the iPhone. And not only mine, I am sure of few other people too. Especially of the fan base who stands in the queue utterly ignorant of the hunger and cold. And this is a fact; the craze is so much so that even people who can’t seem to afford this form a part of that queue.
What is this crave for but? Is it the finest quality material that the iPhone uses? Shouldn’t be; because even the Nokia Lumia uses 800 uses some equally polished ones. But how many websites highlight it like they way they do with the iPhone? None. What else then? Retina display, is it? Well the Galaxy S3’s Pentile Amoled not only reproduces color; Sammy has focused on the durability also to a large extent. (Read more of this).Audio quality then? HTC’s Dr.Dre Beats audio is so much better. Camera? Have you heard of the Nokia Pureview or for that matter even the Galaxy S2?
It’s the brand value and the origin according to me. It started from the iPhone guys. The user interface, the apps available on a phone, the sleekly interface. Yes, IBM Simon is there, but the improvisation to the name Smartphone was materialized by the iPhone. Moreover, IBM Simon didn’t bring any evolution with it for people to reminisce. So, no matter how many phones come out now, that authenticity of the iPhone would always be searched and craved for. Just like Black Sabbath would always be on the top; irrespective of the innumerous heavy metal bands out there. They were the pioneers; leaders in shorts who always have followers in copious numbers to the grave. The S Voice of Galaxy Siri right; a slight look at Siri and anybody could judge from where has this concept being taken from.
Apple offers a stunning user experience that’s rationalized, and simplistic enough even for kids to use. Google, on the other hand is good, but then the fragmentation sucks. Thousand of smartphones in the market fails running the running the latest version of the OS.
Oh, and have you noticed? There’s no manufacturer logo in Galaxy Nexus; by far the most popular Samsung Google phone. They used to have it before. From where has this idea suddenly stroked Samsung?
