Rather, it keeps the viewer's attention to the center of the image. Doesn't seem to be out of focus on my computer, especially considering the image was edited through Instagram and probably posted up at a low-resolution. It's a nice, minimalistic image that introduces a nice blend between soft, warm tones and a colder feel as the eyes of the viewer progress upwards. Gives us the idea that it was taken around sunrise. Just my two cents, as it's certainly not an image to brag about the iPhone 5's camera with, but it's also not something to be bashing on for all of the wrong reasons.
The only thing that was not subjective in your analysis was the focus. Unfortunately, resolution has nothing to do with focus.
Problem is... none of what you said was intentional when he took the picture.

Well for any other phone they would have to do the same thing if it had issues....And try making Samsung give you a new replacement on the spot---NOPE.

I can think of maybe two times I've actually been in an apple store.
I don't often to the apple store either. It's too busy but I am going to go buy another lightning cable since they sell it for $21 and best buy wants $40

Apple gives users without apple Care get 90 days of technical support by telephone. If you're past 90 days you have to take it to the apple store.

I don't know if apple does this but blackberry used to mail out replacement phones and then you send your old one back. All on their tab.

Nope. They have had the same connector for 8 year, about time they changed it up. Plus it plugs in snug much better, doesn't get in the way as much, reversible, charges faster, and replicas will happen soon.

It's better than having to change all my chargers every time a got a new phone. At least with the iPhone I was able to keep the same charger for a while, and use it across several devices and generations.

I sympathize with the hassle the new connector causes, but we need to look at this from the correct standpoint. Apple hadn't changed the connector in nearly a decade. The new iPhone is thinner and can now be held up by the new connector quite safely.

My last bit of perspective: The only reason people are complaining about this connector is because Apple products have become such a huge part of their lives. I'm long AAPL

They have not changed connectors in a decade? Why not use a standarized small pin USB like the rest of the world? Ah that's right because you can get those connectors for $4 anywhere...The new connectors have chips in them to make it difficult for replicas to be made. It is simply another way to keep people stuck in the Apple ecosystem.

You over paid by $6 minus whatever your final bill was.

But this won't work in BMW (at least not in mine).
I see the USB end, but where's the audio pin?
