Apple As expected, Apple announced its new iPhone tonight, dubbed the iPhone 5. The rumours and leaks nailed it, with the most prominent feature being the move from 3.5" to 4" (1136x640). Due to the way iOS handles resolutions, applications need to be adapted for this new display, and if they are not, they will be letterboxed (black bars). It has a faster processor, better camera, LTE, and several other improvements, while the. As always, Apple does it right: shipping 21 September in the US, UK, Canada, France, Germany, Australia, Japan, Hong Kong and Singapore - the rest of the world will follow later.

Does it make sense?
How many of those apps do you actually use vs are obsolete or you regret buying?
What is the cumulative price of the apps you actually use?
Is that price bigger that the difference in price between the iPhone and the other phones with better specs?

Yes, I don't need to replace every bought application, some I can easily miss or may have forgotten all about.

But I'm happy with my iPhone 4 and a 5 is the same, but much better (well, so they tell us). All my iStuff complement each other and share data, it would make no sense for me to use anything else but an iPhone.

Well, my dropbox connected each other too. My firefox, my chrome.
I think to get an Android dual SIM phone for $200, 5.2" screen, android, mail, google drive, firefox, and dropbox. I think MY Stuff too, complement each other ;)
