Ok, those are fair arguments. But I object to holding Samsung up as innovators. All they can do is copy- and handsomely punished for it, too.

re: Why I Returned My iPhone 5s
I would respectfully dispute the point that the 4 and the 4S were the same. The 4S had a more advanced chipset AND it introduced Siri as a feature.

(Whether Siri counts as an improvement some might debate, but those two phones do definitely offer a different experience from each other, IMHO.)

Author, you say "...iOS 7 on the 5s was a bug-ridden mess..." Really? That tells me your anti-Apple bias gets in the way of your facts. Your article is a FAIL.

re: Why I Returned My iPhone 5s
Calling Apple lazy because they keep the same design for two years is a weak argument especially when holding up Samsung as an example of non-lazy design. Apple and Samsung could not be any different in their approach to design. Different is not necessarily better. Rather than demonstrating industriousness, Samsung's approach to design is undisciplined and haphazard. The reason that Samsung brings dozens of new product designs to market in a year is because they employ several competing product groups in the hope that if they throw enough ideas up against the wall, some of them will stick. Apple is much more deliberate and disciplined in their approach to design. Some of the folks who really appreciate Apple's disciplined process are the third-party developers who make accessories for the iPhone and the owners of iOS devices of which 64% are now using iOS 7. How many Samsung devices are running the latest version of Android?

Your household must have money to burn with all those (11 !!!) Apple devices. Very few can afford that much stuff.

A radical step. Such reactions also remain as clear indications about the marketing techniques of many providers which create a hype even before the formal launch of the product. Its good to know that somebody has shown the guts to protest in his own way. The mobile ad network companies like appnext or adcolony should also look into such incidents before framing out their apps and games

re: Why I Returned My iPhone 5s
This author is really suspect. His article history shows that he covers Android and Windows by talking up new products, but covers Apple by criticizing the crap out of them. Same for his Twitter feed. It's okay to have biases, Eric, but admit to them up-front so I can save my time avoiding your stuff. There's far too much noise out there nowadays as it is. Why add to it?
