Yeah, you guys knew this post was coming sooner or later. At first I really liked my iPhone 3G; I felt like I was on top if the world, it was fast, had nice apps and was a good phone. Then the 3GS came around and right then I knew there was a problem with iPhones.

In the past people used their cellphones until they either broke or burned out the battery. Then smartphones rolled around, saying 'hey! I can help connect your business and make your life easy!' which was fine and dandy.

Then iPhones came out. If you notice, each release of iPhone has only little increments of improvement, between the 3G and the 3GS there was: faster processor, better GPS, and a compass. Now unless you're the real outdoorsy types why would anybody need a compass?

Plus there were many features iPhone lacks and still does for example an SD-Mini reader. Lots of older phones are better than iPhone just because of this feature, the ability to increase the storage without buying a new unit.
With custom text tones, apple is only now coming around to the idea of custom tones, which have been with other phones for years and years. It's really sad to see such a forward thinking company be so sluggish with changing times.

Apple wants to make iPhone 5 a global phone, capable of being on any network. The thing is though, motorola already beat them to the punch with the Photon. It puts the previous iPhones to shame and running for it's money.

Technology moves at a blistering pace and while everyone waits with bated breath to see iPhone 5, I can assure you that there are plenty of phones currently available that can match or exceed apple's next offering.
