Looking to upgrade after used my trusty htc HD2. looking at all android goodies, and iPhone. One thing I catch myself forgetting is , Its a phone...I dont want to control the shuttle from it. Its a phone. So what do you expect from a phone. Making calls, listening to music, bloomberg, exchange integration, decent batery life, decent snapper. It seems all of them provides you with that. Where I think apple is ahead in my choice is the clock that takes the iphone to doc, mynhifi, my landrover seemless integration. It just seems that there are soo much more dockable gadgets for apple. My upgrade is not going to be an easy choice...

Same story day in day out. Everyone hates iPhone so much, it's the worst phone in the world.

Yet you guys hang out in this section all day long 24/7. It is difficult to live in a world of collies when all you see is black and white.

Apple's success is due to 'user experience' and this cannot be measured purely in tech specs. Companies are scrambling to emulate, but not always successful.

Haters call names when they don't understand something. iSheep. Wonderful insult isnt it? Yet iPhone is replacing blackberry in enterprise, iPads being used by pilots. Studies show university students perform better with iPad. And iOS has a huge list of achievements in the medical field used by doctors.

If all the above are iSheep, then please, call me an iSheep :)

Well, i don't when people will understand, its not the iphone's specs, but the ios, which makes more efficient than galaxy s2 even at lower specs(iphone4), n now when it has the best specs available, it will outperform every phone on the planet present right now. If you're looking for a computer out of your phone? then dont go for iphone, if you want yoyr phone to be a portable companion, then go for it.

acceptance will set u free..

accept the fact that 96% is not appropriate to 6.0.

apple won because of the word "apple"

admit it if the specs quality performances

apple is in bottom 3

as I've said brain first before mouth

Just in case people get ideas about Samsung high votes, the company has been caught many times, engaging in voting and fake reviews, by its own employees. It may be the reason why there seems to be haters for Sony Ericsson, Motorola etc, as well as Apple, yet strong praise on Samsung in forums, did nobody ever wonder?

Nto to mention the fake testimonials for the Galaxy Tab series, which was even discussed in androidcommunity:

I don't care either way, I love tech, but some people might care about this kind of thing.

Sure the specs are better than a iPhone 4 but that's all it is a refurbished iPhone 4. Bionic or galaxy s2 is a better choice for now.

> In reply to [deleted post]Just in case you dispute this, according to your logic, the N82 is a much better phone than most smartphones today, LG Optimus, Nokia N9, and Sony Experia Arc lol. The voting system here is broken.

> In reply to [deleted post]Anyone who has studied statistics will know that the average can be brought down by low voting. Please do not repeat this argument, which has been done in the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS voting as well.

The voting system here is such that one can vote multiple times, what do you think happens when there is constant 1.0, 1.0 1.0 voting?

GSMArena in the older days, before flame wars, were frequented by people genuinely excited about tech, and voted with their hearts. Unfortunately, this system has been rendered useless by troll fanboy voting.

Infinity Blade 2 demo at the iPhone 4S launch (notice that there are even koi fish swimming under the reflective pond in one scene):

Also, funny how actual software programmers keep going on about how powerful the iPhone 4S is, with Unreal Engine 3 graphics techniques (same engine as Batman Arkham City and Gears of War 3) running on iPhone 4S:

Just a reminder what optimized software is capable of:

It is one thing to have good tech specs, which iPhone has also in any case, but it is also that there are apps that take advantage of the dual core. Otherwise, it is useless. This is where Apple excels.

If you check carefully iPhone 4S resolution is way better than SGS2. 640 x 960 vs 480 x 800.
and iPhone is 9.3 mm thick all around but SGS2 is 8.5 mm
in its thinnest area.

World War 3 would be Fanboys War!!! :D
Anyway, apple products are just way overpriced. My family has 4 iphones and I just don't get it, the phones were just used for facebook or children apps (my 2 & 4 yrs old nephew threw iphones A LOT).
