Do you know how old these pictures are? They just get recycled whenever Apple releases a new product.

What do you mean? What's stopping you from simply importing your music into any other phone?
#1, storage space. The One X+ has recently become the only other phone with enough integrated storage for me. Other phones I like, like the 920 and (especially) the Nexus 4, have paltry and pathetic storage capacity, respectively.

#2, the various music players and sync utilities. I've done research and nothing is really convincing. My friend lost his One X and used my old iPhone 4 for a while. He mentioned that the main advantage of the iPhone in his view is that there is no player/music organization setup as good as iTunes, with Genius playlists and what not. Although he did eventually get another One-X.

If you don't want to plug in your iPhone, why don't you use Wi-fi automatic syncing and iCloud backups? You can wirelessly update software too.

I do, but it feels like every time I have to use a back up something is missing, not configured properly, etc. iTunes is very clunky for me. I don't know why.

I don't jump on everything Apple introduces blindly. I pick and chose the technology that best suits my needs.

I bet you voted straight line ticket.
Actually, are you of voting age yet?

Stare at it on the corners in good lighting conditions and you MIGHT notice miniscule bits of paint coming off.

Otherwise I just got a retarded one... but at least it hasnt shat itself yet

You have a rare phone, or maybe the rare phone. A phone only spoken about in hushed tones in the grand corridors of 1 Infinite Loop, when Tim Cook is out to lunch.

What do I mean, you may ask. Well I'll tell ya what I want what I really really want... err what you have. Right. You sir, have the only durable, black iPhone 5 in all of existence.

Mine is still black too, I think I got one from the good batch. They apparently changed the anodizing process or what not.

Perhaps you should stop responding. It's a no-win for you here. :dunno:

wait for it. They all end up the same way.

I've heard plenty of owners bragging about their flawless black 5s, including my best friend that was in denial. they all come around.

Go to any store and every black iphone will have some kind of wear on the anodized coating. It's not a big deal if you can get past it, but it's there.

Shame too because I love the black color. If not for the coating issue, I probably would have gotten it. It just looks so good...

I keep mine in the griffin case, but just take it off and leave it in the car when I'm gonna be at work. Too bulky for slacks.
