This is a true statement...if the competition is the iPhone 4s. While it is true that ultmately the phone you choose will be based upon personal taste and need, you can't argue with fact. The fact is that you can't be unbiased and say that this phone offers more from a technology standpoint than the Galaxy S III or the HTC One X. The HTC has been out for 8 months already. The Galaxy S IV is in the final stages of design and testing and the next HTC One X is due to be released soon. This doesn't even cover the quantum leap of technology that the Nokia 920 has. The shortfalls are explained away by making them seem unnecessary or unwanted. MANY people with large hands actually prefer a larger screen and we don't look at it as "too-big-to-use". The excitement about this phone is simply a matter of die hard Apple fans who's minds will never be changed and propagated by the media who loves to print, show, and display stories that they know are going to be home runs for their medium. I have tried the several iterations of the iPhone and to me, the real innovation ceased with the 4. They polish it and shine it up with an additional bell here and there, but all in all the iPhone is and has been unremarkable for at least two generations. Sooner or later, the Apple fans are going to look beyond their self imposed borders and see what else is out there, and without some new, true innovation Apple may be in trouble for the first time in a long time.
