iphone 5 can't do voice and data at the same time which is a pity unless you get the GSM version.

The screen is what i want to see its proper specification SRGB which in easy terms means its got CRT(cathode ray tube) quality .

I also want to check audio quality and see if the camera does have low light quality photos .Its using 2 F-Stops up so see how noisy photos are in real life.

Apple means quality....those who have used iPhone 4s will surely go for iPhone 5 ...Samsung copies from apple..Samsung can never beat Apple....

even tim cook and his partners looked no really enthusiastic when presenting iphone5.

Pity. I actually want to replace my galaxy note with iphone5. But what stays good form iphone5 is the design. The rest is still crap. Galaxy note can do much more than iphone.

I guess if you want a good looking phone and cozy OS, go for iphone. If you want freedom and more capable phone, go for android

im not saying apple are not any good, they make very good products.. the iphone4 was a game changer, the iphone4s was also an awesome phone (which i owned) but it took apple a full year to put a slightly better camera unit in the ip4 and call it the 4s, i have no doubt the ip5 will be a great phone because surely it cannot be worse than the 4s but in real terms the ip5 has a better processor and thats basically it, there are slight improvements here and there but again none of these things in real terms will be distinguishable from the 4s.
again i went from the 4s to using android now and was hoping the ip5 would be something special, and i cant justify selling my 4s to paying a massive amount of cash for a new phone so similar to the old one i just sold.
I guess apple looked at how well the 4s sold over the iphone4 despite a minor upgrade and decided to do it again with the ip5
as much as im a android fan, im a pretty disappointed iphone fan also

apple develops software.

Samsung develops amoled, flexible amoled. They even has transparent screen laptop prototype. Hardware

So, nobody wins or loses.
