It's also a fact that it happened a year after the 3GS was released when iOS 4 came out too: no multitasking support, no task switcher, no orientation lock, no lock-screen wallpaper, and no bluetooth keyboard support.

The one that always sticks in my mind was leaving out mms on the original iPhone.

Even back the the sympathisers justified it and we're proven inherently wrong by the jailbreak community. Not much has changed since then sadly.

Oh and let's not forget that you can lose functionality too!

Apple foisted their on maps on iPhone 4 users but they do not even get the privilege of having the one feature that might make it worth it: turn-by-turn navigation. Priceless. (I would have mentioned the lack of Flyover for the iPhone 4 but I figure not too many folks fly around like Superman and would get any use out of it.)

I'd be surprised if most of the negative comments about the nexus 4 have any weight at all considering the phone is a rarity right now. But, since I own one, I can say these comments are wrong and short sided. This phone is a giant **** you to the cell carriers. If could Google can get the states on to a European model it would be a god send. **** lte if it means I have to be gouged by these *******s.

That's like saying "if she was 2 pounds lighter I would have married her in a second."

Yeah looks that way. Lame fanboy responses all around. LOL, someone even said the build quality was better on the iPhone 5.

Weight is a continuous variable while LTE is binary. Its more like saying "if she was skinny I would have married her in a second"
