> In reply to Rukkie @ 2012-09-16 04:13 from MsN% - click to readDear Rukkie, YES you are paying for Apple's name because of quality. When a certain brand is known for quality, the name rises. Apple makes products of very high quality that's why it's name is sought out.

Ferrari have made a good name for their sports cars, because of quality and user experience. Same with Audi. Ferrari does not make the fastest car by the way, Bugatti does, yet a Ferrari remains a very desirable thing.

So yes, you are paying for the Apple name, but it is because the LTE, the 28 megapixel panoramic, the unibody aluminium is made with such quality and precision it takes your breath away.

Of course the beauty is we have choice. There are many other good phones out there too. Sony and Nokia have the Xperia T and Lumia 920.

But repeatedly posting a huge list of have/have not lists is annoying as it constantly takes up space and is disrespectful in general. Have a good discussion, hate Apple all you want, but do it in a respectful manner to the comment section.

Anandtech has discovered that the CPU inside is not a modified A15, but a powerful version of created by Apple:

http://www.anandtech.com/show/...-custom-core

From the article:

"However, just prior to the announcement I received some information pointing to a move away from the ARM Cortex A9 used in the A5. Given Apple's reliance on fully licensed ARM cores in the past, the expected performance gains and unpublishable information that started all of this I concluded Apple's A6 SoC likely featured two ARM Cortex A15 cores. 
 
It turns out I was wrong. But pleasantly surprised.
 
The A6 is the first Apple SoC to use its own ARMv7 based processor design. The CPU core(s) aren't based on a vanilla A9 or A15 design from ARM IP, but instead are something of Apple's own creation."

I'll repost so you can see why a lot of applefans are disappointed

Applefans! Brethren! Watcha say about this...
Features/Specs Iphone 5 doesn't have that other handsets already offer:
Iphone 5 has...
No NFC
No Radio (non data)
No Real Multi-Tasking (2 or 3 major apps running at the same time)
No SD Card Slot
No Burstshot (Camera feature)
No Best Photo (Camera feature)
No Concurrent Voice and data LTE support
No water, dust, and scratch resistant exterior
No Customizations
No HD Screen
No 3D Screen

Features/Specs that iphone 5 has that they copied from other phones that had it first
Panorama (Camera feature)
Simultaenous HD image and video recording
4G LTE
Video Call over Network
Notifications

Now look at all of these technologies that iphone 5 lacks and copied from other flagships...
Tim Cook's Apple is a hypocrite...they claim to innovate but as you can see Apple now is the one behind in technology...

Apple points fingers at others and shout: "They copied us"! Hey Tim Cook and Applefans! Take a look at all the tech you COPIED...
Before you acuse... take a look at yourself!

My iphone 4s is an iphone...the best one there is...
Iphone 5 is not an iphone...it is a NO phone It is an utter disappointment! :(

> In reply to stanley @ 2012-09-16 03:07 from uHQQ - click to readiOS still better for me (even if i dont know about other os'es)! in terms of software and quality and i love it! i personally dislike this phone with lacks of improvement with extra row of icons (iOS6). just upgrade your iphone (i know its available also in 3gs and present but not good as we expect) and you will get this software/os and the screen size and the speed is good enough for me (i also dislike nano sim, 9-pin connector WTF) and i love iphone 4s cos its made specially by steve jobs! and i dont like this phone made by tim cook! (please learn to respect and be polite for the opinion of others. peace)
