. damn you, samsung! why must the s3 be so pretty?!?
I actually agree with you about everything, unfortunately, however, I am already running ios 6, and to be honest, its nothing special at all. Yea you get the GPS, but its useless if you have no service (and just driving through upstate NY on a trip, or through the tunnels leaving manhatten, I lose service ALOT). I know that some phones with GPS are useable even offline. Yea, 3D maps is cool, but for me, completely useless. The rest of the features are basically useless as well, they are cool little add ons, nothing special. Apples new maps is not even close to up to par with google's maps.
Too add too all of this dissapointment, your gonna give me the same phone, except stretched out? Everyone was waiting for the redesign last October when the 4s came out, now almost a year later, and I'm not sure if I even consider the rumored iPhone a redesign.
In my opinion, only a few things are keeping the iPhone desired by many.
1. Usability, its easy. (But its time for a redesign of the os, we are all getting bored.)
2. Apps. (No other system comes close.)
3. iMessage. I know its not the biggest feature, but I, as well as most of the people I know, have grown acustomed to it.
I'll end my rant now. It's sad that I have this much negativity about apple, when I consider myself a "fanboy."
