The iPhone 5 is set to sell like gangbusters. Every analyst on the planet has already voiced his or her opinion on the phone’s expected sales during the first month, heck, even during the life of the product. That’s great; I hope consumers dive all over it and get what they want. But I don’t want the iPhone 5.
Maybe it was the leaks that killed it for me. I feel like I did when I snuck under my parent’s bed when I was five or six and found all of my Christmas presents. I feel like I did when I realized, at that very moment, that Santa wasn’t real and would never exist.
And don’t get me wrong, I think it’s going to be insanely successful. I think Apple will continue to sell millions of iPhone units and will continue to catch up to Android’s market share; though that could change. IDC, for example, suggests Windows Phone will surpass iOS by 2016. When TechnoBuffalo reviews the phone, we’ll review it for what it is: a new smartphone on the market. If it’s great, we’ll give it a great rating. If it’s not, we won’t. This is just my personal opinion here, and I like surprises and advancements more than I do seeing leaks. This is, of course, if we take those leaks as the real thing, but this far in and with so many it’s hard not to.
See, I think the big misconception is that Windows Phone 8 and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean are playing “catch up” to iOS. That’s really not the case. In fact, both operating systems are doing their own thing, separate from one another and separate from iOS. I think both are pushing the boundaries a little harder than Apple is, too. You can find, for example, 12-megapixel cameras on Sony devices, NFC in tons of Android devices and in future Windows Phone 8 phones. Both offer tight integration with social networks already. Android offers removable batteries and removable storage in many devices, two options I require in a smartphone. Windows Phone 8 will offer removable storage, too. Neither are playing catch up, they are playing their own ballgames…
