The highly anticipated launch of iPhone 5 yesterday wasn’t actually that impressive. Apparently, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak didn’t seem all that convinced and hoped iPhone 5 takes better pictures than his personal Samsung Galaxy smartphone.
When one of the Apple co-founders uses on a daily basis a smartphone by the company’s biggest rivals, it’s just a bit suspicious. Isn’t everybody at Apple convinced their gadgets are the best and everything else is just a cheaper rip-off? Steve Wozniak was interviewed today in Shanghai about his take on the iPhone 5.
Bloomberg notes that Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has at least one prerequisite of iPhone 5, one that his Samsung Galaxy S III is great at. “A better quality on the pictures will mean a lot, because when I show people pictures on my iPhone 4 and my Galaxy S III, they always say the Galaxy S III, or even the Motorola Razr, pictures look better”, Wozniak explained.
Of iPhone 5, Wozniak noted there have been a lot of changes made since the previous models. There’s a larger screen, a microchip that helps it run faster and better, plus the new apps that come along with it. Maybe one of the best things about iPhone 5 is the inbuilt map application which is wanted to over class the already famous Google Maps.
“I think they took some very important steps” Wozniak said. But he still has a small doze of uncertainty regarding this new gadget. “I’d like to get a product, use it myself before I judge it and compare to others. I’d like to have it myself and tell what’s good and bad about it” he said.
As a fair judge and clearly a tech enthusiast, Wozniak talked also about the dispute regarding the patent trial between Apple and Samsung. “I hate it” Wozniak said, adding “I don’t think the decision of California will hold. And I don’t agree with it — very small things I don’t really call that innovative.
He ended his interview expressing one of his wishes about the gadget world saying he would wish all developers should come to peace and just do their best: “I wish everybody would just agree to exchange all the patents and everybody can build the best forms they want to use everybody’s technologies.”
