this is why apple stock and product is done. when i got to store i want the newest and best new featured phone on market. Apple brings a new product with 2 year old tech. Thats why people buy 4s its the same phone with a #$%$ new plug. who doesn't put nfc and other great features in there new phone. Or you could buy a new car and say i dont need power windows but thats just dumb.
when a phone is older than a year from any other company its put to bed cause its OLD tech. Guess what happens new tech comes out but not for apple fans they love old tech and not because its so far ahead cause the 4s was old before it came out. If you like old stuff i got a commodore 64 to sell you. As for features thats funny here we go . wifi direct, nfc, picture in picture,open source, google maps,goggles,drive, all free no fees, rapid shot photos, widgets, and new cool feature best face look it up every phone should have. there is some many more just dont have enough space on page. You might not know what these features are and wont get them till 2014 good thing world ends in a few more days.
Or, perhaps they buy 4s because the price point allows them to finally own an iPhone. That's what the people I have actually spoke to say anyway. OUS, people definitely aspire to own an iPhone, if they can afford one. They love American made products and AAPL is an icon.
