iPhone 5 - Page 175

So Piob - you invented this peculiar spelling of "fanboi." Is it a Canadian thing? Are you a closet Avril Lavigne fan?

Have not been keeping up with the thread, but liking the iPhone after a few weeks of use, other than a few fairly minor annoyances.

Noticed the new Nano came out for $150. At that price, I'd rather go with a 16 GB iPhone + 16 GB nano than a 32GB iPhone. Extra $50 gets you another charging cable, another pair of ear buds (fwiw - not much to me, but others might like). Am I reading this correctly - Apple charges $19 for the cable, and ANOTHER $19 for the little thing that plugs into the wall?!? I like that the Nano includes an FM radio, and the combo would allow me to listen to music on the nano w/o using my phone battery. I'm all for one do-it-all device, but battery life in the iPhone is still not where it needs to be. I still say a major breakthrough in battery tech is my most-wanted feature.

Example - in android, if I receive a text message, I can swipe left to call, or click and hold to add to contacts/view contacts. In iOS, I have to click on the thread, scroll to the top, and click a button to call or add/edit contacts. This is not simply different; it is inferior. More time/steps to accomplish the same thing.

Also, iPhone would be vastly improved if they would add at least one more button to the bottom.

Let me guess -- you want a 'back' button.

So if I'm in my mail, tap a link and my browser pops up...if I hit the home screen button twice my mail will open again? I just tried that twice and what I got was the search screen.

I would not be opposed to it. No reason the button can't be user configurable, though. As it is, generally to go back there's an onscreen button at the top of the screen in iOS. Buttons on the bottom are much more convenient.

The screen should shift and you will see the mail app appear at the bottom. Maybe you're not double clicking fast enough?

Back would be nice and a menu button would be nice. That is a major beef of mine with the iPhone. With Android you have a menu button that will pop up any settings on every screen. It also explains why Android is much more customizable. You don't get one global setting in the setting->this->that->more this-> finally at that setting. Then talk about a back button? You have to back all the way out of every submenu. Very inefficient. Hit your home screen button and next time I hit "settings" pop me up at the Settings homescreen vs. five sub menus in where I was.

Thanks for that. How many windows can I open like that?

when it's up, scroll left or right.

also, if you do the home screen quick 2-tap when the phone is locked, some ipod controls pop up.

and there's the quick access camera option from the lock screen, something that has come in handy for me on the street or the subway when I just have to capture something for the "things you can't believe you just saw" thread.

It's not the same as actual windowing. It just sequentially pops things up.

Btw, have smashed Avril Lavigne look alikes years ago. That's a pretty common look amongst French trailer trash and has been around a long time.
