    Apple ‘cuts order for iPhone5 parts’ after weak sales but Samsung powers on after selling 100m Galaxy S devices

    Apple has slashed orders for the screens used on its iPhone5 because of weak sales while arch-rival Samsung has sold its 100 millionth Galaxy S device, in a sign of changing fortunes in the mobile market.

    I had a Droid and switched to an iPhone a couple years back. I am not an Apple fan boy by any means but I love the iPhone. It's a lot more stable and easier to use than my Droid was. :dontknow:

    I guess you can get the iPhone 4 and/or iPhone 5 at Walmart with their $45 monthly plan now, you just have to pay full price for the phone.

    I'd be a lot more inclined to get an iPhone if it was under $100, but that'll never happen. I have no idea how much the Samsung Galaxy is.

    Droid depends upon the model. I have both, work and private. My bionic is faster and more stable than the iPhone.

    I heard someone say that they can get a new Iphone 4 with a plan for $1, and the 4S was cheap too, so that's one benefit of new ones coming out, the older models are still good and worth buying.

    i feel the same way about Ford since they stopped supporting my car. right after they released a newer model suddenly they;re not stocking replacement parts and i can't even get them to do regular maintenance on it. ever since the Model T started selling I feel like my Model A is a dinosaur to Ford.

    They fucked themselves with the iPod touch 5. It's like $300 for the cheapest version I think 32gb, but it's not worth it.

    So when 6 comes out and the price comes down I might buy it, I have ipod touch 4 and it's great, but the camera is shitty, no flash and like .70 mp like a still on their hd video camera.

    There is no denying that other smart phone producers have not only caught up to but also passed iPhone. Apple forced LG, Samsung and Motorola to step their games up and should always be remembered for that, but iPhone is in no way the king it once was.

    iPad are stupid too, especially the mini. You can get an android one for like $100. The real dummies are Microsoft thinking people want that stupid Surface for around the same cost as an ipad.

    You can get fair pictures in good lighting enough for like a 5X7 enlargement or if you are outside on a sunny day. The video is pretty decent. I think it's 720. Eventually I plant to get the ipod touch 5, hole iphone 6 comes out soon :giggle:
