Among the sea of smartphones, Apple iPhone has stood out and become the darling of the new era. Do you know why people love their iPhones? Recently, Apple has unleashed a new advertising campaign about why iPhone to remind potential Galaxy S4 adopter, like “iPhone feels substantial in your hand and perfect in your pocket.” “Loving it is easy. That’s why so many people do.”

Actually, many people love iPhone, not because of the retina display, longer battery life or iSight camera, but just because “So much more than before and so much less, too.” Indeed, iPhone makes us do so many things so easily and brings us more colorful user experience and less constraint. With an iPhone on hand or in the pocket, we can go anywhere, capturing interesting shots, gathering new contacts and taking notes of inspirational ideas on the go.
