Hi ...apple is the best comp ever. I have been using
android phones for the
past 2 yrs and an S3 user
for the past 3 months.
Bought the iPhone 5
couple of days back. The
first that struck me was
this is beautiful , both the
hardware and the os. My
S3 has a lot more features
and it got updated to jelly
bean yesterday. I have
never felt the need the
most of them ( at least for
a business user like me )
the only thing that caught
my attention is the smart
stay but the irony is you
have to help the device to
stay smart most of the
time by holding the phone
close to you or stand
against a bright source of
light. With all the power of
quad core , the S3 still
hangs and stops for a
second or so while opening
an app or a picture after
the jelly bean update. All
this happens for everyday
use and not while gaming.
Finally I have started to
understand iOS and its
simplicity. It works flawless
and is pleasing to look at.
It comes at a high price
tag but I guess it's worth it.
My only worry is the home
key as you are dependent
on it everything you exit to
home screen and I hope it
lasts for a long time.
well, i don't understand about you guys. its clear that the android's are much more user friendly that any iphone version. everyone knows it since like what? 4 years ago?
apple is not selling specs, apple is selling design and idea. You gotta give them that. Owning an iphone is something. i've had my hands on iphone 3g and its still butter smooth till today. The only reason i won't be using it is because i can't use a simple bluetooth transfer function without modifying it LOL.
on the other hand androids are easy to customize and reliable. Doesn't make it fast, compared to IOS 4, the latest android still lags with all the specs, 4 cores, 1gb ram etc.. you name it.. had my hands on S3 and note 2 its not nice and boring. Design is crappy and doesn't feel good on my palm not to mention it's ultimate lag-ness with all the cores LOL.
moral of the story is, design matters in a phone and iphone 5 delivers it. its more like a feel good professional phone rather for the IT junkies.
i'm personally using an android because i have no choice. i need the msd card, bluetooth and easy file transfer. But Iphones have WAY better design and they feel WAY better on hands over any android device.
Androids beats Iphones on customization on any given day. Not to mention the cyanogen mod, aokp, miui roms which are handy in many many ways.
Just choose what you need and buy any phone. They all are good. If you have that extra money, buy an iphone and an android. you wont regret either way. why this argument?
akskmr0000007, 27 Jan 2013i still hav my iphone 4 and for those who are on the galaxy side can your galaxy s play temp... moreBuddy, play temple run 2 on a note 2 then you won't talk lol. I cant imagine I just commented on a temple run post
[deleted post]..The changes cannot be seen without research.
iPhone 5 is a very strange released device. It got me thinking.. battery remain virtually unchanged.. how is it to power a 4inch device with LTE and yet have similar or better battery then the 4S/4?
It is clocked at 1.3ghz.. Much faster then any previous version iphones, how did it manage better or similar battery life as the previous A5/A4 chip??
A6 is running on Cortex-A15 vs a Cortex-A9 chip. Which by right should consume more battery then A5.
Cut long story short, A6 is a highly configured version of C-A15.. which allows twice improvement @ lower battery usage. Most noob geeks do not see this.. and thus miss it..
There is alot of optimizations and efficiency going on with apple products, most of which is silent and unsung achievements.
Anonymous, 26 Jan 2013Hi i have iphone 5 and an s3 . Iphone is good for day to day use but When you play the same hd... moreYea???? really???? You f in rich enough to own both? Welcome to my world.
I have both too. But my s3 started to lag as I started to add more apps. It seems like runs like a f in computer. The more programs, the slower it gets.
I have 64 gb ip5. I have 2gb's left of space. Guess what.
I sold my s3.
Thank you thank you.
10 days with new iPhone 5 and my lightening coonector now does not recharge the phone. Does any one facing the same problem. Didn't know what happened to the connecting wire, the connecter really gets HOT and not charging the phone. Will be going to apple care tomm hope so they change the wire. Didn't expect this from apple. They Boost about there new lightening connector and now mine got spoilt in just 10 days.
Yes I have been using the Iphone for one month, its quite good and additional features are excellant...
akskmr0000007, 27 Jan 2013i still hav my iphone 4 and for those who are on the galaxy side can your galaxy s play temp... moreoh so do you do temple run all day to make it the basis of a great phone? that's so mature LOL
i still hav my iphone 4 and for those who are on the galaxy side

oh sorry you dont have enough power to do so so shut up i also own a lg optimus 4x and i can say that its better thatn s3 and at last iPhone 5 is better than both not on paper but in real world use
ISJ5, 27 Jan 2013there is a new rumour about the next gen. iphone. I hope apple increase the screen from 4.0 to... morea better spec is better but for me i think it could be better if we stick to 4inch iphone. Because this is a phone not a tablet. I hope iphone dont do any phone larger like samsung. Iphone should maintain its simplicity yet stunning.
The main reason to buy Apple products including the new iphone 5 its because no one can afford them or Iphone 5. it demeans my image to use a popular product or phone... so I know for a fact not ANYONE can use and afford iPhones and other Apple products. no wonder why there are so many loosers who patronize iphone left right and centre. I'm a proud user and carrier of Iphone 5..
there is a new rumour about the next gen. iphone. I hope apple increase the screen from 4.0 to atleast 4.3 or 4.5 inch. And make it 13 mp camera then it could be perfect.
Hi i have iphone 5 and an s3 . Iphone is good for day to day use but When you play the same hd video in a S3 and an iphone side by side , the s3 just blows the iphone away . Amoled hd is truly awesome.
Bharani , 26 Jan 2013Hi. I have been using android phones for the past 2 yrs and an S3 user for the past 3 months. ... moreThere is a feature of "Assistive Touch" from iOS 5 or above by which u dont need to press home key physically, by it can make u able to press home key from touch screen... :)
So, no hardware buttons required except power on/off button... :)
