Good phone with ios
17 November, 2012
Apple has done something truly remarkable with its smartphones, something that other platforms like Android and Windows Phone can’t touch. That something is called longevity and it’s represented in two ways.
One, the hardware. When you buy an iPhone, you know that you’re buying a phone that is not going to be overshadowed the next day, next week or next month by a better iPhone. If you buy a phone on another platform like Android, chances are, your phone is last-generation only a short time after its considered next-generation.
I’ve never liked that about Android, but I don’t blame people who do. Windows Phone devices don’t get released as often but you better believe they will if Windows Phone 8 gains much traction.
Second, the software. I’ve owned my iPhone 3GS for around three years and I am still getting the latest software, even if it’s a stripped down version. Folks who just bought the Lumia 900 Windows Phone, which came out earlier this year, won’t be getting the Windows Phone 8 update this fall. Instead, they will be getting stripped down version version called Windows Phone 7.8.
And don’t even get me started on Android.
I never had to worry about that with my iPhone 3GS and I can’t tell you how comforting that is.
