Honestly. This is just a combination of my personal experiences of products that for some reason got a lot of attention about being flawed or not working as was supposed. After all I end up thinking there are way way more actually working units than malfunctioning ones. Some people and media just tend to make the whole story sound more dramatic as it is in reality. So... iPhone 4: Known because of antennagate and malfunctioning rear camera with poor white balance. My iPhone 4, my dad's iPhone 4 & my sisters iPhone 4 + many of my friends and relatives units how ever were all perfect, flawless units without any issues. I believe that this is actually the best gadget I've ever owned. It was superior smartphone back in time and mine is still working perfectly. MacBook Pro with Retina display: Known for ghosting, yellow tinting and other display problems. Also known for different fan problems varying from fan speed issues to weird fan noises. No ghosting, no yellow tinting or any other display problems with my unit. Also my friends unit is totally perfect. No fan noises or fan speed problem. Media and people made this problem look much more widespread than it actually was. iPad Air: Known for safari crashes, whole system crashes, random reboots and other nasty stuff. I've owned this thing for almost a year now. During this time my Safari has crashed 2 or 3 times so the problem exist... but really? Because safari crashed 2 or 3 times in a year period people makes it to be a huge problem? Seriously. Other than that. No system crashes or random reboots. Perfectly fine with it. iOS 7: Got a bad reputation about being buggy and slow compared to previous OS's. Some people didn't like the redesign. Well... after all I was completely happy with the iOS 7 from the beginning. No major bugs that actually affected my user experience. Redesign was welcome and I personally enjoyed it even thought this is subjective. I'm happy that Scott Forstall got fired. iOS 7 was hugely better than iOS 6 or anything before that. iOS 8: Having a bad reputation about being buggy and slow and stuff. Truth is. It's on my iPad Air now. No major bugs. Actually better than iOS 7 was at the beginning. No problems with it. Of course I understand that these things may vary and you guys may have totally different experience than I have. However, the question is why do people like to make a big deal for nothing?
