Is the iPhone 5 dissapointing? – Galaxy S III vs iPhone 5

Is the iPhone 5 really dissapointing? Or is it offering just the right features?

Some of the new innovatives features claimed by Apple – which are not so innovative:

  • Panaroma Mode – heaps of phones and 3rd party iPhone apps have been doing this for ages
  • iOS6 reject a call with a text (eg. ‘Sorry, I am busy. Call back soon.’) – Android has been doing this for a long time.
  • Take still photos while you record video – This has been on the major rival manufacturer phones since start of the year
  • Many might think the iPhone 5 is disappointing, but the pre-orders disagree. Apple stopped pre-orders after only 4 hours.

    Samsung hit back at the iPhone 5 and lapped up the lack of new features by posting this simple ad. They took on Apple Genius’ with the tag line ‘It doesn’t take a genius’, implying choosing the SIII over the iPhone 5 is a no-brainer.
