iPhone 5: Nine Reasons Not To Get It: Update

Okay there are no doubt many reasons the iOS faithful out there will tell you why you need to purchase the iPhone 5, but what about any reasons not to purchase the next generation iPhone? Well what we have below is nine reasons not to shell out your hard earned dosh on the latest iOS smartphone when it appears at some point.

The nine reasons comes our way courtesy of the guys over at iDownload Blog and is basically a humorous look at the reasons people shouldn’t purchase the iPhone 5 done by the guys over at MacTrast, which can be viewed below.

The nine reasons include such things, as the iPhone 5 will not have a replicator to dispense hot beverages, the iPhone 5 cannot be used as a defibrillator in an emergency, and the iPhone 5 cannot transport you to any point in time and space.

All of which means of course is that Apple’s latest piece of iOS tech isn’t the ultimate futuristic technological marvel the iOS faithful would have you believe, and is basically just a smartphone doing things that smartphones do.

Of course it’s all done in the name of humour as obviously none of these nine reasons actually have any baring on whether you would purchase the iPhone 5 or not, but it does go to show that at least someone doesn’t take the iPhone 5 as seriously as others.

My favourite is “The iPhone 5 does not come equipped with a zombie killing laser,” which is a good thing as no doubt rather than targeting zombies which are in short supply, I figure users would target Android users in an attempt to get rid of the opposition…just joking folks.

As I said earlier, there is an abundance of reasons why people would purchase the iPhone 5, some through loyalty to Apple and no doubt some will defect from other platforms, but we’d love to know why you will pick up the iPhone 5 once it becomes available, so feel free to let us know your reasons by posting to our comments area below.

My personal reasons for not purchasing an iPhone 5 is, firstly I am one of the Android faithful, and secondly no doubt it will be way beyond my financial means.

Oh and if you feel you have another reason for not purchasing the iPhone 5 feel free to share that with us as well, and we’ll see what ingenious reasons our readership can come up with.
