    When I look at iPhone 5, I think, WOW. Bloody orgasmically high quality.

    Now, iPhone 4 quite frankly looks like it wasn't made by Apple, but Samsung.

    Tim Cook took the most ambitious company, and IMO made it better.
    Under his leadership, the finest of all products was created: the iPhone 5.

    I love Steve, r.i.p, but do you think he would have allowed iPhone 5?

    One person doesn't create the iPhone. A big team of people make the iPhone. These efforts aren't the cause of just Tim Cook or Steve Jobs.

    Show me someone who claims the iPhone 5 is bloody orgasmically high quality and the 4/4S is el cheapo made by Samsung and I'll show you 5 people who claim the opposite and 5 more people who insist the iPhone 5 is just a longer 4/4S.

    Samsung would of never made a phone out of stainless steel and glass on the back. Though the iphone 5 is nice, the iphone 4 design IMO will be remembered more then any others.

    lmao the iphone 4s doesnt look plastic like samsung devices. it just looks like its not the iphione 5...

    and supposedly steve jobs had left a "road map" of the next several phones/products post iphone 4s..
    so steve prolly still had some design on the new one.

    and most importantly like the second post.. not one person makes the phones. hence why in every keynote they say we have made..

    I claim the iPhone 5 is "bloody orgasmically high quality". But, I still think the 4/4S is good.

    And as for the difference, mate there's much more to it than that. If you paid attention to the keynote, you'll have realised that they are vastly different.

    it just so happened that Jobs was dead when the iP5 was released. Technology will advance even Cook is not there.

    I'm pretty sure you could find more then 5 people who say an iPhone 5 is a longer 4/4S. :D ;)

    Look I agree at the time iPhone 4 was amazing, and the leap from the 3G/S to that was huge, and great.

    I'm just saying I'm really pleased with the direction Apple seem to be going in.

    Yeah I agree, and I think the starter of this thread is being a bit one dimensional in his thinking.

    Still, he does have a point, the iPhone 5 is a BIG improvement.

    But that isn't down to any individual, that's for sure.

    I can't yet afford an iPhone, but still think about them for many hours of the week.

    It's a ratio. 5 people for every 1.

    IMHO: Steve would have loved the hardware, but pushed the software a bit more before he would have been 100% ready to ship. The iPhone hardware team is innovating way faster than the software counterpart.

    I'm still in love with my ip4 design, stainless steel and glass is perfect.

    Although there's plenty to love about the ip5, it certainly isn't as durable...

    I'll see your question and raise you a better question: who cares?

    Seriously. You? Do you care? If so, why? What's it to you? What's it to anyone what Steve would or wouldn't have "allowed"?

    I'm so sick of this "Steve this, Steve that" crap. You wrote above that you "love" Steve. If so, then why are you essentially trashing him?

    Maybe more like a 20 to 1 ratio. ;) I for one am one of those 1 for every 20.(I like the iPhone 5 design) I'm sticking with my 4S until my upgrade next year anyway though.

    The iPhone 5 was probably designed with Steve's input. It's probably the last one he designed and that's why I'm buying it.

    Both the iPhone 4 and 5 exude quality to me. The 5 is the next step over the 4. Nothing cheap or Samsung feeling about it.

    There are some things one owns that when it serves its useful purpose you toss it around or take it to the trash can. I have many Apple products that I no longer use but still dont throw away because of the high level of craftsmanship, I just keep em around like a pack rat or eventually sell them.

    You get a new device so you trash the old device. Even though, when you had the old device you trashed the older device and the current device is and always was designed by God.. I mean Jobs himself.

    zzzzzzzzzz :rolleyes:

    "iPhone 4 is not only the finest product that apple has ever made, it's probably the finest thing humans can buy.

    How can making it thinner make it better?

    I DON'T WANT IT THINNER!"
