It need to be a radical re-think from the ground up...

For Apple to have any chance of regaining its mojo the next iPhone needs to be the most radical re-design of the entire concept of a smartphone since the original iPhone 5 years ago.....

They can't be satisfied with these minor, incremental changes any more...a longer battery life, a faster processor, a slightly better camera, they need to rethink everything from the ground up...

The next iPhone needs to be as radical a change in philosophy as Windows 8 is from Windows 7.....only this will make the iPhone the 'it' device again.....

If they make yet another minor update....Android wins and iOS loses...

600,000 + .
That's the amount of applications Apple has.

$1,000,000,000.00-
That's the amount of revenue their ecosystem has generated.

On average, that's the amount of hard resets I've do on my "daily driver" Android hanset a month. (An HTC One X, Galaxy SIII, Galaxy Nexus, HTC Inspire, Nexus One (AT&T) in that order.)

Absolutely nobody else comes close. Google Play is somewhat close in the number of apps, but the quality is dramatically inferior to that of iOS. You can look at phone sales (there are more Android phones sold than iOS phones), but at the end of the day, it is an ecosystem game. Apple's building a content/application ecosystem above all else

A radical change puts them back at square one. That's what's hamp...

Sorry Blue But the new iPhone sounds like the phone the rest of the world has had for the last 18 months. Cellphone are a lot more than just a pretty face. Cellphones are about the radios they use. and Apple is way late adding LTE radios. This time Apple is just playing catchup with all the other cellphone makers.
I don't know how good the Win8 is going to be, but atleast its totally new. Something Apple can't say.

And Android currently has 68% market share....which is pretty good for a platform that didn't exist 4 years ago....

I have a Galaxy Nexus GSM unlocked and a Motorola Xoom, both running Jelly Bean....the last time I needed to reset the Xoom in November when it was running Honeycomb (which everyone agrees was not a very good build) and I have never had to reset the Galaxy Nexus.

If you go to the options, then go to 'about phone' or 'about tablet' then hit 'status' it tells you how long it has been since the last reset...

Currently my Galaxy Nexus stands at 1,293 hours, which happens to be the exact number of hours since I installed Jelly Bean....before installing Jelly Bean, then count stood at around 1,500 hours, which is the exact number of hours since activation.....so I've gone about 1,800 hours without a reset,...those 1,800 is equal to the numbe...

Never had an issue with my EVO 4G LTE, never had any issues with my previous versions of the EVO (and yes I have every version of the phone). My phone can do everything I want it to do and everything that the Iphone does. Iphones are highly overrated and Apple is sitting on their hands thinking they have nothing to worry about as far as which phone is the best. The so called "new Iphone" is just a bit bigger and from what I've read doesn't have anything new to brag about that Android doesn't already do.

I have quite a few co-workers that have had the EVO, and have had numerous issues, my sisters husband as well. Mainly the charging port went bad for all of them and the replacements seem to have the same issue. You were one of the lucky ones. I work for Sprint and have dealt with a lot of replacement orders for the original EVO. Yo were one of the lucky ones then.

"from what I've read.." Apple announces the phone on the 12th, wait until then to base your opinions on rumors, nothing is set in stone until Tim is announcing it.

We are talking about software issues....no matter how good the software is, it can't fix bad hardware....if you want to talk about hardware problems, I know that the iPhone has long had a problem with battery life...

Updates for the evo's were rather slow as getting the latest iteration of Android, the iPhone 4 had GREAT battery life..until iOS5. From the beta testers, the iPhone 4 and 4S were getting better battery life on iOS6 than iOS5. IDK where you are getting your facts from, but from personal use, my iPhone 4 has had nothing but great battery life. iOS5 caused less battery life, but it's still better than most phones out that are 2+ years old now.

The original iPhone4 set records for dropped calls that will never be broken
.
It took months for Apple to even come close to fixing those problems

I have an iPhone 4 and have had a case since day one..have never had a dropped call. Shocking to say about AT&T, but they are great in my area..

The reception would only drop if you held the phone over that particular band without a case. They didn't necessarily fix the issue, (as it's part of the design) but the 4S didn't have the issue.

I work for Sprint as well and have worked here for many many years in the call center, some of my co-workers have had the charging port issue with the original EVO and that is a known issue with it. Guess I'm more careful with my phones that some people. (aside from me having to have the latest phones cause I'm a phone junkie lol)
