So no matter what Apple propaganda you hear about why Apple doesn't include certain features it is almost always about simply making more money from customers by restricting features and giving you no choice but to buy a whole new phone when you end up short on memory because after getting a Smartphone people inevitably want to do more things with it.

Widgets too are ok only with few of them if you just too lazy to tap just one more time to actually reach the app in menu...plus with more of them it just ends up as another menu... i am a Samsung user and if you can track down my internet provider with my imei then would know which model i use, but still i rarely use widgets apart from certain like msg, camera, and weather, that's all...
and btw what are u - pampering the company (android) that its too difficult to code multitasking and all...!!
dude we care for end results don't we?? unless we get paid for the technical jargon... multitasking should be there but as of now given the ironic battery with almost every smart phone, its too stupid to use it casually that way...the only thing is that we can just show off - my phone has this that and your phone doesn't... where's the point in actual usage, unless we scumb to use almost anything any company gives, even if that was useless to us or just say could be achieved by another method...

Polycarbonate plastic seem to be more scratches resistance , lighter and better signal transmission.

the real truth between ios and android. apple haters will not mention to a friend to avoid them from buying apple iphone.

What makes apple superior to any android phone no matter what.

Applications.

Programmers are more focused on developing high quality applications for the apple because it's easier. Thus giving them much better apps. Android users say "no no they are the same" the truth, is, this is not. Apple's os have much much better applications then the android. Source : this is not made up, this is straight from a friend who works at a programming company that makes apps.



SD Card. We won't know whats apple reason for not having a micro sd card slot. However, apple is fully aware, (as they work very close to those programmers) that these programmers DO NOT ALLOW these apps to be able to run out of the sd card. This is "most programmers" do not allow this. so its utterly useless, since apps cannot run out of the sd card anyways. it's only good for storing music and photos I guess. Which is kinda useless too, since there should be more then enough space on a 16gb iphone. How many photos do you really have? 20000? Cmon, how bout songs? are you really going to have 800 songs?

IOS update. The iphone will suport up to the next 3 updates. So for example, the iphone 5, can be upgraded up until the IOs8, as for android, it can only be updated once! So pretty much, that S3, you update the android once, and thats it. It will not allow another update, and you will need to buy another android phone.

Thus why apple is superior to any other phone out there.

Android users can feel free to brag about how great it is. Go ahead. But this is the real truth, apple applications >>>>>>> android applications. No joke. If your not writing programs for the iphone, your not a reputable programming company. Once they prove their worth writing android apps, they will go to apple, and hope they make it to the big boys, to the "real phone company"

iphone 5 is a real bitch go wild in US of A but it's sucking crock in other areas eg here in Nairobi.
all I ever hear applets say is "ooh it's long, OS6 has probs but hop apple gon fix this, it laggs behind android in software functionality thought offering excellent performance bla bla bla..".
kiss my (ㅅ).
after weeks of explorations I realized the phone can't beat my original galaxy note® released 1 yr before.
iphone is snappy and with the executive feal but that is all it has 2 offer coz OS is all β version `coz of A lot of bugs` and expensive for nothing.
hey` never ment any harm but iphone`s great. according 2 u.
.....

Nothing special in iPhone 5.Overpriced phone with lot of restrictions.Size just 4 inch.Not ideal for Web browsing.

BGR iPhone 5 review: Month With The iPhone 5

http://bgr.com/2012/10/22/a-mo...he-iphone-5/

"The iPhone 5 is undoubtedly the most impressive iPhone Apple has launched to date, but it’s also more than that: it separates Apple from its rivals by a wider margin than ever before. In terms of hardware quality and in terms of core software performance, the new iPhone has no peers.

Apple’s competition still offers a number of advantages over the iPhone in different areas, but the complete package the iPhone delivers — the end-to-end experience that results from hardware, software and services that are cohesive and elegant — is in a class by itself."
