Can't "nest" folders.

Speaking of Newstand, any good free subscriptions?

THE DAILY is ok. I hardly use Newstand.

Newsstand is definitely annoying. I have all my apps on one screen - a few of the most used apps at the top, and the rest in various folders. I like being, at most, one click away from any app. Would much rather replace Newsstand with something I use, though.

Interesting. I don't think I have ever used spotlight. Turning it off.

Ha, I'm totally gonna get shit on for this but I can't help it.

Friend of mine finally got his new iPhone 5. He previously had the 4s and paid a bit more than the $200 the upgrade usually costs cause he did an early upgrade. He walks into morning report and is talking about how much he loves his new iPhone and how it's "so much better".

So, wondering what he'll come up with, I simply ask "Why?" and he gets a startled look on his face for a split second and the best answer he can come up with is "it's so much lighter!"

I waited for more. There wasn't any...

I could understand him being so amazed by how much better it was if he came from a 3GS or maybe even a 4 but to hear him prattle on about how much better his new phone was than his 4S was hilarious. I guess that's the iHype.

Full disclaimer - I'm an Android fanbois and I'm rocking my 3 year old Evo 4G for which I've been eligible for an upgrade since Dec 2011. It's getting a little long in the tooth but still does more than enough.

For me it is the clearer screen, and speed that does it for me. It is actually useable for internet surfing between the processor and 4G.

It's thinner, lighter, has a bigger screen with better color reproduction, improved camera & Wi-Fi, LTE and a faster processor with more RAM. I wouldn't upgrade over a 4S myself, but it's laughable to pretend it's not a nice improvement. It's not iHype.

Sure, if he had said any of those things I could understand.

But he didn't. For someone who was enthusiastically proclaiming how much better his new phone was the only reason he gave was "it's lighter".

Really?!

I'm pretty sure that the reason he upgraded his phone is that 5 is a bigger number than 4.

For the record, I thought it was the same camera...just an upgraded lens. Cover.

I honestly see no difference in performance of the camera from the iPhone 4

Some people just want the new thing. People who spend extra to upgrade to a new phone, instead of waiting for their contract to be up for renewal, fall under this category.

It's got much better low light performance. That's the main improvement they made to it.

I'll take your word for it.

I upgraded from a 4s and the LTE alone makes it worth it for me. Plus I only pain 80 USD to upgrade since I sold my 16 GB 4s to a friend. (I bought the 32 GB version this time)

I will also get the 5s when it comes out and I will sell this phone for for at least what I paid for it.

Oh and I use the camera a lot, that's a plus.

iPio, do you use tapatalk?
