RE: iOS 5...

The camera problem happened to me last night. Switched it off and on again and it seemed to be fine. I've finally managed to sync tonight and everything is once again working as it should be. Just a bit of a pain to have to reselect everything that had to go back on the Touch, but hey ho.

RE: iOS 5...

IOS5 - basically every feature is already available on android, and IOS5 is a blatant copy. Good luck on your 800Mhz Iphone 4S with only 512MB ram and crappy 3.5inch display.

 

And how much has it cost u?

Hilarious. Follow that sheep - oh wait ur already in that flock....

RE: iOS 5...

I'm an Android person as well, on my 3rd Android phone (HTC Sensation). I've played with an iPhone extensively. I've never felt that it was underpowered or slow. I also thought that a 3.5 inch screen is perfect size, which enables easy one hand operation. I have to reach out to access the top button on my Sensation. Larger screens may be of use to some, but I don't see any advantage.

With regards to features, remember that Android platform itself is an iOS (or OSX as it was called before) copy. Yes a lot of features in iOS 5 were already present in Android. Let's use an example. Google voice is already present in Android phones....have you noticed it appears pedestrian as compared to Siri?

All I want to say is this; this argument of "my phone is better than yours", or "android is better than iOS" or "iPhone processor is a lot slower than some Android phones" doesn't hold a candle. Use in real life is all that matters. Some prefer Android & some prefer iPhone. Let's stay that way without ridiculing the other camp.

So by having an android device you're somehow unique? Just like everyone else that has one?

Nothing wrong with either os. You choose whichever you prefer.

Would you say this to iPhone users in public? Complete strangers? Including the big lairy looking ones? (Don't worry they're only sheep).

Probably not.

Couldn't you have criticised the phone without insulting the users?

RE: iOS 5...

I updated my iPad yesterday to iOS 5, easy enough process, without any glitches.....or so I thought.

Backed up the iPad first using iTunes and then downloaded the upgrade.....iPad seemed to sync OK with all appropriate apps added back and working.

However went into my diary this morning and it's deleted all my appointments and diary dates from the calendars......FFS. This is my work diary as well which makes its even worse. Not had a chance to check iTunes to make sure they backed up, as they should have done....not a happy bunny at the moment.

I have heard various reports that people have lost apps/music and videos on the iPhone when undertaking the upgrade.........not good at all!!!

How times have changed - it was not too many years ago it was the Apple users that were firing comments like this at PC users [insert ironic smiley here]

I will wait a week or so until the dust settles before exploring this for my ipad2

RE: iOS 5...

Despite my very slow wifi the download went very smoothly, just under an hour. First restore crashed and then subsequent ones also claimed to have failed. In fact everything restored - except all of my music has been wiped! :mad: This is just over 3000 songs and will take many, many hours to restore, very frustrating.

Not had much chance to experiment with the changes, but the predictive text now appears context based and is much improved, as is the appearance of text messages when locked. Not fundamentals, but still good.

Why can't you just re-sync the phone? Are you saying the iOS upgrade wiped the 3000 songs from the iTunes on your computer too?

RE: iOS 5...

I think some people are misunderstanding the chain of events with syncing the phone on iOS5

 

The only difference is that the phone is no longer disabled when syncing data, its only disabled when updating the OS.

 

Previously, new OS means a restore, the phone is not accessible until the data is transferred, which takes ages.

 

Now, the phone updates in a short period of time, but the phone is fully accessible whilst the music is syncing.  It still takes ages to upload the music, but you can access the phone whilst you are doing it.

 

The phone has been restored on OS install.  If you un plug the phone as soon as the GUI is accessible (and don't wait for the spiny update icon to finish spinning) the the music has not been uploaded yet.

 

It is not faster to upload data, it just gives you access to go about your business on your phone whilst it updates.

 

Hope I'm not telling anyone how to suck eggs.

I can and am re-syncing. Got about 1,000 done when i left it running yesterday night, at which point I imagine my computer went to sleep. It takes a very long time as it compresses to ?128k to fit so many songs on.
