[deleted post]Those stated points are subjectively good or bad.. not a comparing between ip5 or note2 or any apple/non apple products.
Split screen view sound nice, but most ppl do not have the attention of doing 2 things at the same time.. and the back key becomes awkward to control 2 application at the same time.
Smart alert/smart stay and face unlock does not work well yet.. and very dependent on surrounding lights.
The rest of the features are those for your android UI.. widgets/live wallpaper, both are battery intensive.. thats the reason ur carrying that massive battery all around.
Quad core is because android requires more processing power for it.. Toggles for wifi/bluetooth/ are made readily for your device because they drain massive battery compared to iphones/ipad which you do not even need to touch.. just leave it on.
Ppl like android for its features, but don get carry away because it offers more specs and features..Step back and think awhile, if those features could help make my real life easier? and if they justify the cost or not.. ? do they work well in all conditions or not?
Of all the features provided by Note 2 / S3 i find productive is as follows .. not those listed "features" you give:
1. physical led notification light
2. Bigger text (easier for old people to read on)
3. expandable memory / battery (subjective between people thou)
4. buddy page

Advance happy new year GSMArena, to all iOS users and to the people coming here! This is my last post here at gsmarena this year, coz my plan will expire today hehe... to all iOS users just enjoy your product and just ignore this hater coming here! REMEMBER HATERS ARE THE SECRET ADMIRERS HAHA...
[deleted post]Use it. And then talk. Did you see the speed comparison test between iphone and gs3? Check again. Why on earth are there so many people worrying about iphone? It seems like it is a real thread......I used iphone, note 2 and gs3.....and the fine tuning told me to get rid of the plastic phones with the droid inner.....
[deleted post]Words, specs.........please use the phone yourself, on a daily basis and in business....your list say nothing! I had note 2 and GS3 and gave it away! Smart stay?? It's not even working all the time! Weather widget on homescreen? You have to manually update it! Apps running in the background? It's eating your data and battery! Two tasks on one screen? Some people can't even operate ONE task! Use it and decide. Everybody on this forum and using phones know all the specs. I myself is reading and scrutinizing all top phones. And if a phone suits u, use it. But it doesn't make it a better phone for everyone. All the things you named....I bet that 99% of users don't even use it or know how to use it. And it is all gimmicks. All phones do have certain features that make them unique. Htc, sony, samsung, orange...name it, they are all depending on google for their os. Iphone on the other hand is writing their own. They have only ONE model competing against ALL other makes....and all manufacturers are comparing their many products with iphone!! What does that tell you???
[deleted post]It's the other way round, no matter what Samsung does it cannot get out of Apple's shadow. And even when they win, they lose, they outsell iPhone and yet cannot match Apple's profits, even with their cheating copycat ways, saving on R&D cost.
Kadaver, 28 Dec 2012Yeah, having scratches, especially out of the box isn't cool. Another thing is the rattling so... moreScratches out of the box agreed isn't ideal, but the rattling sound is the vibration motor, which is meant to move, not a flaw.
i love iphone 5, but seriously we need something like wifi direct for faster sharing. shoot video of my family and to transfer that to other device really take so much step on apple product. its always been the major flaw of iphone, they rely on another tech so much(fast internet,itunes,pc,mac,etc).
[deleted post]Apple is building their own phone, developing their own os and marketing their own product. All other smart phones, and I mean ALL, are at the moment using some other os and marketing gimmicks. Apple products have all the gadgets and innovations there are in all smartphones out there. Just easier, smoother and working better. No need for them to compete with google. Why on earth would google make available to apple their maps? Cause they know the power of apple. All other manufacturers (look at samsung) are flooding the market with different phones and models and gadgets etc etc....apple got one phone, and everyone is comparing this one unique product with all other crap flooding the market? And still Apple is one of the biggest! Let one think hey?

hy guys, i really love i5 but i have one question, does the i5 will never slow down or kinda lag even when multitask with a lot of apps open?
[deleted post]You are on the wrong forum! These type of comment belongs in samsung forums. And by the way, what features are there that you think samsung is better than Apple? I used both, and gave my note 2 AND gs3 away...like cheap ice cream with a camouflage at the outside. I'll rather go with the real ice cream without the camouflage.
logg, 29 Dec 2012do you think other iphone 5 have loose screw rattling or a noise inside? their phone? have an... moreLoose screws that you can hear? Take it back and they will replace it. But it's laughable that one buys a phone and shake it to see if you can hear something. Buld quality is best on iphone. Samsung is plastic and slippery!

And the loose battery is just a sales gimmick! Most people won't do that. And widgets running etc etc?? People don't even know what the widgets are for! What on earth are you doing with your phone when going out? Sounds more like an outing to play on the phone! Then I rather stay at home and play with my phone at home. And while you carry an extra battery, then I will get myself an extra charger and carry it with...
Cikguhar, 29 Dec 2012Yess ip5 is better than note2 already tested browsingIphone is faster and more smooth. It's a phone! Note 2 is a mixture of things....too big as a phone and too small as a tablet! I know! I tried it! Iphone TOTALLY the best!!
ruIin, 29 Dec 2012If you want to talk about android then get the shit out of this forum.I have tested both the p... moreThanx! I also tested and used both, iphone and note 2 AND, I forgot, GS3! Iphone is totally the best!! It's like cars...all cars can be driven, but a Rolls Royce just got that little extra that you can't really eaxplain....just that edge that makes it special! Same with iphone....use it and then talk again. That's why we used them both, and iphone just got the edge! In the end its so much better!! And for anybody that want to put a cover on....Qdos Smoothie!

We are using the hardware but operating the os!! Iphone's os is best! Easy and smooth and just right! All phones bigger than 4 inch are too big!! Iphone is best!
