I’m am an apple product fan. Huge fan of the iPhone and the iPad. I own a first gen iPad and still use it. Even though I am an android phone user I can still appreciate Apple hardware.
Every product refresh they make they include great enhancements but I think there is one move they have yet to make but I think would be an absolute monster boost to their sales.
A larger iPhone to me would be a monster hit. As a Samsung Galaxy s3 user I really appreciate the extra screen real estate and I appreciate even more the ability to strap on a cheap aftermarket battery to the back of my s3 which triples the battery life.
I believe there are many people out there that want the smallest and lightest phones they can get but with the sheer computing power available on today’s smartphones they are being used more as portable computing machines and I think there is a distinct trend with people who want larger phones to be able to hit the keys easier and navigate easier, see videos more clearly, ect, ect ect.
Although I recognize that Apple will probably never let you open up your iPhone or add a micro sd card slot for more memory a larger iPhone would mean more space internally for a larger high capacity battery. If there’s one thing that sucks about a smartphone for a power user it’s the amount of life a battery on a small phone has. Bigger phone, bigger battery.
For me the ability to get many different android smartphones with detachable backplates allowing for huge batteries and larger screens are the difference and why I’d recommend an android phone over an iPhone. But if I was a casual non-demanding smartphone user it would probably be iPhone.
The success of the Samsung Galaxy Note which is basically a Samsung Galaxy with an even larger screen shows there is big demand.
I don’t agree with Apple’s tactic of offering a low cost iPhone either with the 5c and it’s plastic parts. Apple has always been synonymous with unapologetic top grade hardware and premium pricing. people were and are willing to pay for it knowing they are getting the best hardware without ever questioning it.
I equate coming out with a lower grade iPhone to a brand like Tommy Hilfiger who for a brief moment was competing with the likes of Polo/ Ralph Lauren and then went and sold out and buried there products into discounters like Marshalls and TJ Max. Forever to be equated with a poor man’s Polo and never will they ever be able to command the premium pricing they once did.
I say instead of offering a cheaper iPhone option that they should have offered a larger iPhone option with a mongo battery and charge even MORE for it. That would have pleased Wall Street I bet.
