8 Things the iPhone 5 Still Can't Do

http://finance.yahoo.com/news/8-thin...-can-t-do.html

In terms of specs, performance, and features, the iPhone 5 is Apple's best to date. This doesn't mean it's as good as it could be, however.

There were a few egregious omissions from the keynote presentation – features that we not only want in our iPhone, but that we feel are overdue.


NFC for mobile payments

Instead of building NFC into the iPhone, Apple would rather have you use its Passbook system, which lets lets users store tickets, gift cards, boarding passes, and the like.

It can handle some (but definitely not all) of the tasks that you might use NFC for. For example, you can't use Passbook to wirelessly send money to a friend via PayPal.

NFC also lets you beam content between devices just by tapping them together. Samsung's Galaxy S III takes advantage of this feature.


Swype
An improved texting solution on the keyboard, like Swype

Swype is something of a mainstay on Android phones. Instead of tapping out your texts letter by letter, you can drag your finger over them without lifting it. The end result is that you get your message out much more quickly.



SD card support for extra storage

We'd like to be able to extend our device's storage capability beyond the 64 GB maximum. History suggests that external SD card support isn't going to be in a mobile Apple device any time soon.



A 128 GB option

The iPod Classic offered users 160 GB of music and video capacity. Many people (ourselves included) had no problem filling it right up.

Now that the iPhone is an easy replacement for your old iPod, we'd love to be able to carry the same amount of content around with us without having to pick and choose what stays at home.


Non-proprietary dock connection

We've never understood why our iPhones can't use a standard USB port and a standard USB cable to sync. Now the iPhone 5 introduces a new micro-dock connection requiring the use of its own special cable.

If you want to use your old sync cables, you have to buy this $29 adapter.



A micro-HDMI port

Once again, if you want to get video off of your phone, it requires the use of a special adapter. (Unless you buy a $99 Apple TV.) The Kindle Fire HD and several Android phones use a micro-HDMI port, letting you run a cable straight from your tablet to the television.

This makes it easier, better, and more affordable for the user.



Replaceable battery

The battery life on the iPhone 5 has seen some nice improvements, but for the power users who are glued to their phones all day, it won't suffice.

We'd love to be able to carry an additional fully-charged iPhone battery that we could pop in whenever the first one bites the dust.


While we're at it, better battery life!

The iPhone 5's battery life is about the same as the iPhone 4S'. Yes, it has a bigger battery, but the new 4G LTE radio and bigger screen use up a lot of that extra power. We wish Apple had included a better battery in the iPhone 5 like the one on Motorola's Droid Razr Maxx. The Razr Maxx can last several hours longer than the iPhone 5.

It's not a bad thing. Economic analysts have been projecting that the iphone 5 would help boost the economy quite a bit...

Quote:
In a note to clients on Monday, Feroli said sales of the smartphone could add between 0.25% to 0.5% to fourth quarter annualized growth in the U.S., Reuters reported.

“Calculated using the so-called retail control method, sales of iPhone 5 could boost annualized GDP growth by $3.2 billion, or $12.8 billion at an annual rate,” he wrote.

Analysts at the financial services firm project that Apple will sell 8 million iPhone 5s in the fourth quarter, each with an expected sales price of around $600, according to Reuters.

With $200 in discounted import component costs, the U.S. government can include $400 per phone into its GDP for the fourth quarter, the agency said.

Feroli added that his estimate for annualized growth should be met with some skepticism, as it “seems fairly large,” but emphasized that “recent evidence is consistent with this projection.”

He pointed to the iPhone 4S’s strong sales — which outperformed expectations — when it launched last October.

And they are idiots.

In reality, it is either a SLIGHT positive(negligible) or more likely a NEGATIVE due to the fact that a large amount of that money goes to only two places. Apple's cash reserves and China.

The ONLY way it adds to the economy even slightly is if people are spending out of saving on the iPhone (and they weren't planning to buy a new phone anytime soon).. otherwise that money would have been spent regardless, and likely in a way where the money would be spread around and go back into more spending.

This is all based on one note from one guy who made huge assumptions and didn't look at the bigger picture. If you look online there are plenty of economists who have debunked this already. BUT that's not what people want to hear so it isn't as popular.

I suppose that stock growth hasn't done anything for anyone over the past 10 years or so, right?

No, but most of what I do on my iPhone wouldn't be considered an Apple feature per say. That's the point of jailbreaking. No different than rooting.

Same reason Android users choose to root.

Well of course you can. That's exactly why I jailbreak. You should see the themes that jailbroken iOS is capable of....

I'll have to agree here. Yes you can do more with rooted Android phones but only marginally so.
