If you're ok with paying $6.25 per gig of flash memory that Apple got for significantly less (and you probably don't need the extra space) then go for it.

What? When did you get a 335? Is it stock?

Your math assumes the screen is a square, but it's not, and the increase is only in one dimension.

Also screen size =/= phone size.

Wish I could say it was mine, But it's a company car. My family has a bit of a thing for diesels. I just commute in the D since it gets great gas mileage. I'm between letting my two cars go and picking up a special order s4, or just sitting tight and hoping my Kickstarter project goes well, then getting the s4.

Yep, shouldn't have squared it up, sorry. The area is proportional to 1136/960, which is close to %20, still an appreciable increase IMO. If we go by the phone size published in Apple's site (instead of the screen size), the difference is %15.

When you say it like that....



The 16 it is! If anything, I'll use the cloud. Does that count towards your data usage per month?

Those cars always intrigued me, I bought a 335iMsport for my DD, I put about 30k a year on it. Get about 22.5 mpg 80/20 highway/city. What do you get on your 335d?

Fixed math below. Screen is about %20 larger, phone itself is around %15 larger than Iphone 4/4s.
You are a very 2 dimensional person.

I don't look at it that way. Many 3d games are now over a gig for a single app. A hd movie at 720p will take over a gig for an average length movie. You can try to break it down to the cost of the flash memory but that's not really how the value works. You'll also get a large portion of that money back when you sell the phone down the road. Do you have a laptop to take with you on vacation if you want to switch up videos for long plane/train rides?

And yes iCloud/iTunes match counts against your data.

Mmmmmm god dammit. You have a point for the resale value. I'm selling my current phone for 200, so I guess 100 for a new iPhone isn't so terrible

Does anyone know when the AT&T store starts preordering online? I figured they will follow suit and doing the midnight pst/3am est thing right? Or is there a chance they do midnight est?

Guys on AT&T with grandfathered unlimited data be careful of the applestore tonight/tomorrow morning


http://gizmodo.com/5943061/how-to-bu...ited-data-plan

EDIT: Nevermind

Quote:
Preorders through Apple's online store begin Friday, September 14. While the start time wasn't clear at first, Wired has since confirmed Apple's preorders will begin at 12:01 a.m. PT. Bookmark store.apple.com right now, assuming you haven't already.
Apple stores will open at 8 a.m. local time on Friday, September 21. Traditionally Apple customers have been able to reserve a new iPhone or iPad through the Apple Store app on an iOS device. It's unclear thus far if reservations will be available for the iPhone 5.
Sprint has announced the iPhone 5 will be available for preorder September 14, at 12:01 a.m. PT (3:01 a.m. ET) for new and existing customers at Sprint.com/iPhone. Along with the online preorder, you can purchase the iPhone 5 in Sprint stores on September 21.
AT&T just announced it will also take part in the online preorder frenzy. Customers can visit att.com/iPhone to preorder on September 14 or visit an AT&T retail store on September 21. AT&T just confirmed to CNET that preorders on September 14 will begin at the same time as Verizon, Sprint, and Apple -- 12:01 a.m PT.
Verizon Wireless has posted a press release announcing iPhone 5 preorders at 3 a.m. ET (12 a.m. PT) on September 14 at verizonwireless.com/iphone. Or you can visit a Verizon Wireless store on September 21 or after.
Cricket has announced the iPhone 5 will be available on September 28 in "select Cricket markets." No further information was given surrounding preorder plans, or what markets would indeed carry the iPhone 5. You can visit mycricket.com/iphone5 for more information as the launch gets closer.
C-Spire, a regional carrier in the U.S., will also be carrying the iPhone 5 beginning on September 28. As with the Cricket announcement, no further details were given surrounding the timing of the launch. You can visit cspire.com/iphone5 for more information.

When I was commuting to SF (during our mild rush hours), also doing about an 80/20 split, I averaged 32+, Pure city driving getting 26-28 (lowest it's ever been is 24). Going 80 it gets 33-34, at 65 it's closer to 35-38.Put about 5k miles doing that drive and it was very consistent through all of it. Not to mention the gobs of torque it has, it really is a perfect commuter car. Just wish it had the MSport, light colored headliners kill me.

What are the odds you will actually be able to pre order at 12 pm?

apple.com will probably crash. Luckily, I'm on Verizon. Hopefully all goes well.

Wait what? If I can't hook it up through my car stereo and control it like I can now it's a deal breaker.

This seems to answer the question, it refers to iPod out as the ability to display video not audio.

And to save battery life. I wish it supported VoLTE so we could at least have a future solution.
