Also, I highly doubt the fingerprint on iPhone 5s will work correctly at all. The sensor is too small for some people with bigger fingers and I have a feeling people are going to experience a lot of problems.

    4) your forehead might be red please stop face palming.
    They're not new to you, but even when they were new to you, they still weren't new! that's the point! You think that they were new when Android implemented them, but they weren't! So why are you giving iOS users grief? Probably because you don't realize it wasn't new when you first saw it, just like you're ripping them for.

    you don't think the sensor will work? You must have missed the multiple reviews and hands-on videos showing how well it works! Sounds liek you assume it needs to read the whole fingerprint, not just a partial. And it really is new in the way that it works. All you have to do is press your finger down, not scrap it across a sensor like old fingerprint readers. I'm sure this existed before being put on a phone, but I don't think it was how it worked on the Atrix. Also, Apple took the extra step of incorporating it into the home button instead o making it a completely separate input from the home button, which is a smart move to keep the device more simple and clean.

    But since it existed on some obscure device that barely sold any units, Apple should have not bothered in the first place, right?

    These arguments are stupid. All of them are.

    I like my iPhone 5 with iOS 7. I choose to stay with the iOS ecosystem because I like it. You like your android? Fine. To each their own.

    At the end of the day both Apple and Google reap major profits off of both operating systems!

If apple makes 5 " phone, 3gb ram, 2.0ghz+ processor, expandable storage, somewhat open ios so we can drag and drop files rather than usin iTunes, I'm sold.
    You use both a S4 (less than a year old) and a Note 3 (not yet on the market)? Is that true or are you simply listing off the most expensive devices you can think of? In an earlier post you mentioned owning every flavor of iPhone, Galaxy, and Note device. Either you're a liar or you burn money to stay warm in winter. Which is it?

    If you were on the fence waiting for expandable storage, a larger screen, and more independence from iTunes then I could understand, but that spec war you speak of is a losing game played by those unfamiliar with the word optimization, and we don't play futile games like that in Apple-land.
    They can have my jailbreak when they pry it from my cold dead fingers.

    Folders
    Siri

    If you would take time to even read what I wrote maybe your little mind can comprehend the facts. It says on "pre order". Talking to some apple fans is like talkin to a goat. You guys are willing to pay 2000 dollars for a mediocre Mac laptops just to sit in star bucks coffee shop and show the apple logo in the back. Open your mind that there is stronger and better technology in the world that exists.
