Personally I am an iphone person, I had a galaxys3 and while I loved the size of the screen...other products do not operate as smoothly for me. Yes, Apple does come up with "I" this and that which are rarely used in my experience but turn on most channels and its Apple (especially computers) which says a lot. I am not an amazing "tech" person but I do not see why nit would be so hard to take some of the qualities of screen size like the galaxy and some the features of the better droids to the smoothness of the apple phones.

That's what happens when you put the same iOS on everyone of your devices.
People just kinda get bored with it.
Its a great OS.
But it's lack of innovation & extreme repetition.
Coupled with a horrid lack of customization.
Definitely make it boring.
My 2 cents.

I know something that has not been cool for some time.

Yes you know he was never in it for the money. Believe me when it comes down too it NO ONE doesn't want extra money, whether they are greedy and want it for them or want to donate it to charity, no one doesn't want money, especially off their own sweat and blood

The coolness factor has to do with its wide spread popularity now. I remember having the 1st iPhone, people would actually stop me and ask what kind of phone was that. I only knew a few people who had one. Kind of like when the iPod first came out, you saw someone with those white headphones on, not everyone had one. A product because less cool, when everyone has it! The iPhone is probably the first Apple product that took the world by storm at the right time. Now you see iPhone's everywhere, people with the same exact phone as you, maybe just a different case. So of course it's coolness looses some of its shine.

Once upon a time, Microsoft was the coolest thing under the sun. The midnight launch for Windows 95 was legendary, with people literally running through store aisles to grab a copy. But then...
There will come a day in the not-so-distant future when a smart phone is no longer considered a "cool" device. It will be a utilitarian, every day device. Something you HAVE to have, but not something to get excited over.
Hard to imagine? It'll happen.
Something new and better will come along that makes what a smart phone can do look quaint. Who makes it will determine who is "cool."
Because, look... If some company starts selling a home robot that can do your dishes and wash your clothes, Siri won't look very "cool" anymore, will it?
Apple has to keep innovating or others will pass it by.

I think that the iPhone will never stop being cool
And jail breaking will help that but one of the things
I think will help the apple iphone is making the screen
Bigger like a 5.5 inch screen

As far GPS, depends. Most can have it turned on when swiping the status bar down or with the new Motorolas swiping the screen to the very left. Now, how exactly do you turn the GPS off on the iPhone (and I'm not talking about location services, I'm talking about completely disabling the GPS).

The only thing that can keep a coolness factor going is revolutionary breakthroughs I'm not talking the crap apple has started crediting with that title lately but the new "touch screen" which is on track too be holograms/laser-sensitive tech. Both of which are real but are expensive and can't fit onto the common device. Once that happens whoever gets the first punch will probably end up taking over the market while apple falls behind, however apple will still have game because people have learned to realize apple does eventually show off its product that is better. The competition will need to kick apple out at least 8 months before apples next product release.

As far as GPS, when u turn off location, GPS is turned off. Maybe not on android. (Source: wikihow).
