    Yeah is it really a surprise a 4g LTE phone beat a 3g phone?

    It was the one miss Apple had, IMO, for the 4S but the sales of the phone today tell a very different story. Although I live in a tiny town in NH so I probably won't see 4g for like 38 more years. So 4g speeds mean little to me.

    Yeah I live in Florida and they all went crazy over the phone. People waiting outside of Verizon, AT&T, Best Buy and Apple for 24hrs+. Stupid for a phone that is almost identical as they iPhone4 most of them most likely already have.

    By the way, keep in mind that just because you dont have 4g now doesn't mean you never will. My city got it out of nowhere in Sept.

    IMO, there is no such thing as a phone "killing" another phone. Every device has its pros and cons. Just saying…

    I get great 4g here in Florida. And as far as I'm concerned this SIRI or whatever the voice this is is a gimmick. Who's going to be talking to their phones? Google has had the capability to speak stuff for a while. Personally I only use it for navigation.

    If anything Android needs some better games. My kids just got ITouch's and the games rock.

    So true. There has been iPhone "killers" since its launched....and it doesnt look like its going to die anytime soon. Like OneTenderRebel said....sales say otherwise about ppl saying it underwhelmed, disappointed. There are some ppl out there that wanted it and sales show it. What shocked me last year or this year... I saw a few articles about the next iPhone being the Android "killer". Android has finally arrived for ppl to mention Android "killers"...lol Although....one could say the iPhone was the old Win Mo killer. It never recovered after the iPhone launched and Android knocked it down some more. And the iPhone and Android is affecting WP7. Then looking at RIM probably getting replaced with Android in the govt..RIM losing market share.

    One might can say the iPhone and Android were Win Mo and RIM killers..time will tell on that tho.

    For some reason my girlfriend wanted to try the voice features on my Droid X1 yesterday and was surprised how well it worked for using the GPS. Is it because of all the attention Siri is getting? Who knows...but if it is it shows Apple does as least one thing very, very well: getting peoples attention. Personally I would only use something like Siri with a Bluetooth earpiece.

    Its not 4g,but apple tried to brag on their "revolutionary" new antenna design and saying that you would get 4g speeds with a 3g radio. Obviously that didnt work out too well.. lol
