Holy **** calm down. I'm just saying as someone who hopes their investment will hold some value for at least a year, I'd be annoyed when manufactures release and updated phone every 3 months.

I do think Android manufacturers should stop pushing out so many devices. However, they're trying to capture the low-end of the market. Apple devices are priced pretty high so there are a lot of people who would like an iPhone but can't afford it. So Samsung/HTC/whoever make phones in that bracket. That's the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini. They also have phones that are designed to compete with the iPhone (Samsung Galaxy S3).

Unfortunately, they mess up when it comes to brand management. Apple makes sure to distinguish between their devices by generation. So an iPad 3 and iPad 3 Mini should have basically the same performance. Samsung on the other hand, is trying to use the Galaxy S3's name to bolster sales for their cheaper Galaxy S3 Mini that has a lower price with lower performance.

Yes, Samsung is still standing behind their Galaxy S3 and the Galaxy S3's resale value shouldn't drop. The resale value could be higher if Samsung focused on making fewer phones with a clear differentiation between price, performance, and name.

I doubt that will happen anytime soon though, since most of these companies' bread and butter before the iPhone was making as many devices as possible each year to put a flashy "NEW!" sticker on it and have Verizon/Sprint/AT&T/T-Mobile try to sell mom & pop on the "latest and greatest".

Ya I agree with a lot of that. I'm just saying for me, who buys a phone to last for at least 2 years and then expect a decent resell value, that's something that annoys me.

That's my opinion and that's all I meant.

I got mine yesterday. There's either something wrong with the cable or something wrong with my phone's port

I also liked the insinuation that your post was "over reacting" after the absurdity of the "stand behind your design" comment was pointed out.

Push it in all the way, the new one I bought takes more force to push in for some reason than the one that came with my phone

Ya, there's a huge difference there. The iPad has been out for several years and they did stand behind their design with the iPad 3 keeping it the same size. Since the iPad is like 70%-80% of the market right now and what they're missing is users who go the cheaper and smaller route. If they can capture that as well they're looking to lessen the gap.

Ya that's what Samsung is doing too, but there's a much smaller margin and id say it's to compete more directly with the iPhone 5 size. Samsung was hard marketing the size of the original device and then do this.

That's all I'm saying. If you don't get it or understand, pm me. I don't want to clutter this thread with the arguing nonsense.

I'm still waiting on mine from best buy. I'd recommend not ordering there unless you signed up for phone freedom and get $50 off. That's the only reason I did.

You're just an apple fanboy that cant see anything else. No use in PMing you to hear more of your ramblings.

I think I see what you're saying. Apple came up with a product that hasn't been seen before (at least, wasn't popular). They designed it, marketed it, sold it, and it's been hugely successful. Now, they're taking their design and slightly updating it to stay on top.

Samsung, Motorola, etc. never had that moment. The Xoom and Galaxy Tabs all came out after the iPad. So right now they're just trying to stay in the game while they're hopefully working on something that will be the next game changer. A new product that we haven't seen before (or again, wasn't popular).

So while Apple is trying to squeeze out Android manufacturers from the lower price points, Android manufacturers are just trying to make enough money to fuel development (hopefully) of something that will make Apple play catch-up.

I did too. I've kinda given up on that, especially since LTE has disappeared from my Verizon iPhone today for no reason.

Sounds like a network issue rather than a phone issue
