With the current iphone 5 price (£529) people should get what they paid for which is:
Proportional designed phone
New Tech (NFC)
Stunning New Design
These are just a few of the price of which other competitors offer on their new phones. Apple should be offering these new stuff to their loyal costumers and new ones.
Also people are expecting the new iphone should top the new phones around like in speed or multitasking capabilities.
Feel sorry for the people who are going to buy this phone. You are getting less tech for the amount.
Reality, 20 Sep 2012- Dual core Apple iPhone 5 A6 processor at 1GHz
- Quad core Samsung SGS3 proc... moreDude get your facts straight...
Galaxy s3 - 1756
iphone 5 - 1539
People are getting ripped off with the new iphone...and thats a fact. Reason is NO NFC, NO radio, NO 4 cores, NO expansion, NO Multitasking, and more...
Watch this if you want to know about "proper" multitasking on a Smartphone, watch it till d end so uL know and moan after:
'Apple’s new Maps won’t be as good, according to Waze CEO'
To all compare ip5 & sg s3 with geekbench is unreal... it is optimized only for ios not fully for android... SG S3 holds good and vice versa... those who need 'i' take ip5 and others not... LOL
Anonymous, 20 Sep 2012android still better than iOS6...:)point out the reason?
bcoz ios cant be installed ur cheap phones?
I see Samsung soon admitting its SGS3 had only ONE core to be able to explain consumers why it's beaten by a dual core Apple A6 :)))))
Norbie, 20 Sep 2012Around the world, went shopping spree iPhone 5, a media report about the next record sales. Ho... moresorry incorrect
1601 versus 1788...
[deleted post]obviously not a chip designer or you would know better...
geekbench ip5 1601. versus s3 1788
thats the s3 running on ics.. when the jb update kicks in s3 performance is boosted another 40%..
not bashing, just getting facts straight
- Dual core Apple iPhone 5 A6 processor at 1GHz
- Quad core Samsung SGS3 processor at 1.5GHz scores bellow 1600!
That tells alot how much innovation went into each processor!
It takes two Apple cores running at two third performance to beat four samsung cores running at full speed.
nothin new...normal ifone wid a reduced weight and thinner but cant beat S3
