Hurry Up iPhone5, My Patience Has Ended

Tue, 04 October 2011, 9:52 am

Listen up Apple. I’m eagerly awaiting your announcement today of the next iPhone that I WILL buy. BUT…I’m putting you on notice. If you ever, EVER, make me resort to a tethered extra battery again to keep my next iPhone functioning for a year, I will quit you and go to Android. Plain and simple. It was bad enough when your iOS update caused my perfectly functioning iPhone 3G to suddenly become slower to render than running AOL via dial-up circa 1996. Then, you had the audacity to ask for $100 for me to replace my 3G with another one just to get a functioning battery while you release 2 better phones to the market. This boy isn’t going to put a drop into an old phone when you go obsoleting it every 6 months. So, I went the alternative route. I bought a Philips backup battery¬†to limp the phone along until the iPhone5. You know, the phone that you always update in June. Except this year, you decided to wait until October. That’s a full 4 more months of aggravation as I tore through more charger cables than I care to admit with my phone and my “phone-pon” (my friends thought it always looked like I had a tampon coming out of my pocket)¬†wearing holes in my pocket.

So the glorious launch day has arrived, Apple. All I have to say to you is that this thing better have a decent battery in it (preferably replaceable), and you better think twice before forcing some shiny new iOS onto it before the end of my 2 year contract. Thanks for your time.

    You can swap out a Droid battery any time you want. In fact, if you are not happy with the capacity of the battery that came with your Droid, you can get a bigger one! Plus you can buy it from a gazillion vendors. You are not restricted to buying it from 1 vendor.

    Oh, and if the internal memory is not enough for you, you can upgrade that too. No need to buy a whole new phone.

    Just sayin…

    Good luck buddy!

    Interesteng coincidence…The first time I visited this blog via my DroidX, my phone locked up. Is that a sign?
