Yeah I ordered 3 of them at 8 bucks a pop on Amazon... but I don't trust them now given that article.

I feel like the taller screen is very nice... I can see much more information in the notification center and when preview texts come up on lockscreen.. Also I really like that you can see more than 2 lines of text when you have the keyboard up while texting.

I agree that iOS6 wasn't a HUGE change, but either was iOS4 to iOS5... They will constantly come out with updates, so I'm happy with it. For me the Voice to text option is REALLY, REALLY awesome!

Maps is for sure going to need some work, but I hardly see any problems with EVERY DAY TRAVEL. No one here is going to have to worry that some runway doesn't show up correctly, or that the hover damn doesn't look right, as long as it provides a good turn by turn and doesn't get me lost, I couldn't care less about the "details" that google maps gives, 80% of the stuff that google maps shows that apple maps doesn't is completely useless to me.

It completely eliminates the #1 reason why I buy iPhones... because they are sleek and thin. Putting a case on an iPhone that increases its volume 2x is ridiculous. There are other cases out there that protect the phone just as well. The rubber cover makes it impossible to remove from your pockets.

Not only that, if you are handing your children a $800 piece of glass to play with, you need to reconsider what your doing. A Nintendo is about 20% the cost of that phone your giving them.

I apologize for the rant, and I'm not trying to sound like a d**k. However, I just pointing out the things I disagree with.
LOL... I know you're not trying to sound like a d**K and I'm sorry you have to facepalm yourself everytime you see the Otterbox, but for me it has been a great case. I do have to draw the line though on the comment you made about my kids... more and more parents are letting their kids use the educational apps they download off iTunes. Slapping the Otterbox case on my phone has been great in that sense and my wife and I prefer the educational apps for the iPhone versus Nintendo so there's nothing for her and I to "reconsider" as you mentioned. Different strokes for different folks and to each their own.

LOL... to each their own, fellas (plus I'm not here to get your approval/disapproval on the choice of case I use). Funny thing is I've gone to 3 interviews so far (I sadly am getting laid off from my federal gov't IT job and my last day is on 10/1/12) and at all interviews they really liked the teal color of my Otterbox case (as well as the Otterbox case itself) which ultimately led to them asking why I like that color and then I tell them about my car/heart awareness efforts and see their jaws drop when they find out my heart is mechanical, lol.

No adapters needed because HTC decided that it's ok to use a mainstream connector

i have to agree with the earlier post... iphone + huge ugly case (ie otterbox) seems silly to me. if you're going to buy a pretty phone, why cover it up with dog poo poo?

Because glass has a tendency to shatter when dropped?

Not if you watch the drop test videos, guess you missed that? A basic slim case is what I'm going to use that covers all parts that can get "scuffed" because this thing would be completely silver if I didn't.
