3 Ways the IPhone 5 Disappoints Yet Again

Pin It

Apple may be the leader in smartphone technology, but the iPhone 5 and iOS 6 are still disappointing to me on many levels, as I feel more attention to detail is required to reach perfection.

First off, why is there still no customizable display as offered on Android devices? I want live wallpapers and the ability to arrange my icons as I wish. Come on Apple, you going to tell me that's too hard to achieve?

Second, why haven't the dictionary and autocorrect been fine tuned yet? How hard would it be to offer an "add to dictionary" option? How about language detector? If Microsoft was able to figure it out, surely you are too?

Third, I resent these permanent apps you have added to my phone. I don't give a flying crap about the stock market or the news stand, and it bothers me that I can't just delete them. It's my phone, I should be able to do as I please with it. You're like an over-baring mother that won't let me leave home without my mittens.

In conclusion, I'd say I have a love-hate relationship with Apple. On the one hand, I love my iPhone and iPad. On the other, it really bothers me that they keep releasing the same products with incremental improvements every year.

It bugs me even more that I sincerely think this is a well thought out business plan, an evil genius idea to take advantage of the masses, and society's constant need to one-up each other and to keep up with the neighbors.  It's a conspiracy, you know it's true.

  1. Great article, I personally went with the Galaxy Nexus, that has the new Jelly Bean OS, but I owned an iPhone 4 prior to purchasing my new phone. My iPhone was pretty great, but I was frustrated with some of the issues you pointed out above. The iPhone would be much better if they would just spend more time listening to their customers.
