There is always the GREAT upcoming Samsung device for you to purchase IF Apple ends up disappointing you. You know the one that might be metal instead of plastic. Or the one that might have a working 64-bit microprocessor instead of a 32-bit microprocessor for the US and a different one for the rest of the world because... Or the one that might have a working fingerprint scanner if it's suppliers can get it right this time. Or the one with a retina scanner if it's suppliers can get it right in time. Or the one that will have wireless charging if... Or the one that has a newer flexible inflexible display. Or the one that will let you choose the resolution for photo taking. Or the one that... Oh wait, you would have to purchase multiple phones since that company does not seem able to put working technologies in one phone. Well, at least you be would happy.

I hope Apple will let us pick the resolution of photo taking. Otherwise, 64GB iPhone will not be enough.
