We could get into a semantical argument here, but it wouldn't actually be fair. After all, I am a native English speaker; you, clearly, are not. I won't get drawn into that, you're perfectly capable of making a fool of yourself without me helping you.
Why offer further assistance when you've made your self a spectacular example, eh?

The pride you must feel at being capable of mastering your own language. Perhaps next you will enthrall us all with your ability to grow hair down there.

Merely making the point that if you want to debate in an English speaking forum, you should probably ensure that you can speak the language adequately.

If these arguments are difficult for you, please ask for help.

People who pick on other people's command of the English language are usually hitting below the belt. While this is an English speaking forum, we do have international users(like me) whose first language isn't English. Please be respectful and don't imply that we are not welcome.

I am respectful. As I stated, I merely ask that people don't enter into a debate using words that they clearly don't know the meaning of. Seems like common sense to me.

Incidentally, if you want to be a moderator, you should probably ask someone. Till then, might be best to lay off the whole telling people how to behave thing.

I don´t think you are respectful, I think you are snide. Of cause english is my second language too, so now you can tell me of too. And then I can make snide comments in swedish and feel superior cause I have better command of that language than you.

Also, I believe that those of you that are native english speakers should be more understanding and probably try a little harder to see the meaning behind, considering the advantage you have over those of us that have english as a second language and are trying our best to make our meaning clear.

Perhaps its like politics -- if you cannot contradict the persons argument or success, you attack the person. I will not be a politician.

Certainly, there are minor concerns with the new iPhone, but they seem to worry only tech enthusiasts. Vocal minority.

Consumer enthusiasm and sales to regular consumers are higher than ever.

Maps? eh.

Scratches? eh.

“Apple is facing significant production constraints due to a move toward in-cell display technology,” Ben Reitzes, an analyst at Barclays, wrote in a research note yesterday.
Quote:
The supply constraints may be short lived, Dinges said. Because of the large sums Apple spends on components, the iPhone and iPad maker will be the first in line for parts, he said.
Quote:
Another component that may be causing challenges is the new baseband chip that helps the iPhone 5 connect to LTE, or long- term evolution, wireless networks being introduced by mobile- phone service providers including Verizon Wireless and AT&T Inc. (T) in the U.S. and Deutsche Telekom AG (DTE) in Europe.

Qualcomm Inc. (QCOM), the biggest maker of chips for mobile phones, has said supplies of those parts have been constrained as it moves to a new manufacturing process to build them.

Flagship Smartphone Display Technology Shoot-Out

Apple iPhone 5 – Samsung Galaxy S III – Apple iPhone 4
Result:

Quote:
Based on our extensive Lab measurements the iPhone 5 has a true state-of-the-art accurate display – it’s not perfect and there is plenty of room for improvements (and competitors) but it is the best Smartphone display we have seen to date based on extensive Lab measurements and viewing tests.
Quote:
While it’s not quite as accurate as the new iPad, it is still probably more accurate than any consumer display you own (including your HDTV), unless you have a new iPad.
Quote:
Suggestions for Samsung: Keep up the good work in improving OLED displays! To produce a better OLED Smartphone, use a smaller size display (that uses less power), add a bigger battery to increase the screen Brightness and running time on battery, and most all – please calibrate the display so that its Color Gamut matches the Standard Color Gamut and the display delivers accurate rather than distorted, exaggerated, and gaudy colors!

Scratches out of the box, or simple to come by, are not a minor issue for such a high priced item.
