iPhone 4 Failings and Affects on iPhone 5 Sales

From the moment that I took possession of my iPhone 4 I knew that I was not going to have the same feeling as I did for my 3GS. Yes the handset looks much nicer, but by then I had already started to hear of those Antenna problems. Most of us assumed that it was an isolated incident — we all know different now.

I am not going to lie to you, I am an Apple man and every year I pre-order my new iPhone to see what amazing things they have done this time. However, I just did not get the buzz as I have in the past, and for me this presents a huge problem.

The thing is I have now found myself wondering if I should get the iPhone 5 when Apple launches it next year? I am certain that I am not the only one who thinks that the failings of the fourth-generation iPhone will affect their decision in the fifth-generation model? If this is the case, then surely sales of the iPhone 5 will suffer?

I know that other handsets have had their issues, but how can Apple expect to be taken seriously when they launch a nice looking device only to have it covered up to stop you losing signal?

My wife still has my iPhone 3GS and as you know, I have the iPhone 4. We are both on the same network — so how come she constantly has more signal bars than I do? So much for that improved antenna.

I have not had the time to contact Apple about another issue I keep getting. Often when I look at my phone I see the message “No sim installed”, not certain why this is, but I will have to get to the bottom of it soon.

I have a tough decision to make in 2011, do I stick with Apple or do I jump ship and move over to Android — losing all my apps in the process?
