I used to be a Symbian fan (since N95). Then the iPhone came out. Nokia fanboys at the time were reluctant to give the iPhone a try, but kept saying that it sucked. But the moment I tried one, I couldn't believe how I've lived in denial.

Then I became an Apple fanboy. At the time with my iPhone 4, Galaxy S2 came about. I gave it a try and, well, there were goods and bads. The apps on Android just don't look as good as on the iPhone. Seems like developers develop the iOS version ahead of Android. But the good, I can use my S2 the way I like it, especially with saving files and using it as a USB mass storage device. Different browsers that actually behave like different browsers. What I don't like is how background in is implemented here. I have to keep watching out what's eating my battery. And rouge apps could be running without me knowing. IPhone background in is not real but I actually like it because apps can be truly suspended.

Now iPhone 5 comes along. I think I'll give it a try. My point is, for Apple fanboys, iPhone 5 does lack a bit of customizability, Android gives you much more freedom. But if you like stock everything then what can we do. For Android fanboys, if you haven't tried an iPhone, you really should, you'll be surprised. If you have, you'll understand when I said that both have some shortcomings.

Be open, and be nice.

ok heres the thing i spend way too much on mobiles like an embarrassing amount, swapping brands/os constantly..
and a part of me was hoping the iphone5 would be special.. im almost relieved now after the announcement of the ip5 cas now i no longer feel the need to spend the cash on yet another mobile phone.
take care mate

Here's the bottom line: if ever Apple makes the iPhone5's price equal to any best-selling Android phone, people will not buy anything else other than Apple iPhone5. U yourself will scramble for the iPhone if I throw the iPhone and the world's best-selling Android phone...

Sorry to burst your bubble!

If u know anything about Engineering and design, a more advanced dual-core can beat the quad-cores with more RAM. e.g. an quad-core Intel core-i5 can beat a six-core AMD processor. Apple's processor is by far the best and smartest. The software iOS-6 is so designed to work at peak with it's A6-processor. None of the Android smartphones in the planet can match an Apple iPhone in looks and performance.
