Funny how some people compare Iphone with an Android phone.

Basically you buy an android phone, for example a Samsung, for a good price/quality phone.

You buy an Iphone if you have enough money or borrowing cause you want to join the hype, and like to pay a lot for memory, stability and security.

Choice is yours. It is basically a choice how much money you want to spend on a phone.

this is a good phone not much different from the last few models but ipohne, apple needs to make a leap with the next step like from iphone 3 to iphone 4. they need something different bettet, from change in design to unbeatable specs. look a little towards android and give more customizable option, no one wants a bubbly selection of apps you need an iphone that will look just as premium as it does on the outside as it does on the inside. Basically something you would like to show off from the outside, in.

> In reply to james @ 2013-12-05 17:55 from v0qJ - click to readI agree, buying a phone because of the games it has is retarded. But I think people look at the specs to much and judge just on that. I have yet to see an S4 thats quicker than my iPhone, most S4's have a few lags after a while, and one or two that I've seen have serious lags. Also, jailbreaking an iPhone these days isn't such a good plan. The apps and security apple gives are good enough without having to look elsewhere. I personally think the Android stores need some regulation as some of the worst apps in the world can be found there. The Specs of the iPhone may be lower, on paper, than other phones, but it's super fast, browsing is crazy fast and smooth, and the screen, to me, as as good as it gets.I prefer an iPhone screen resolution and brightness and colourfullness to any other phone. And the speed, again, it may have a dual core, but my iPhone 5, not 5S, is quicker than the S4's and S3's that I've had experiences with. The things you listed negatively, make up for the fact that the phone will do a better job, lag free, incident free, virus free(hopefully), for longer, and perform more consistently than any other phone.

(600-700euro) for ihphone?just for modern combat 4? then you go to your friends and tell them.. oh look guys, see how beautiful modern combat 4 on my iphone 5s, it has a quadcore gpu an a dual core 64bit cpu!hell yeah you do not have this kind of technology


android user(in mind): so what?Can I not run the same game on mine? what else can it do? other than thoose sh**ty specs?

Think again dumb! you can have a good laptop for 40k and do gaming. not on a sh**T handheld phone. which can only do call,text,game,take pictures(but can not send to other platform via bluetooth),gps(with a wrong map), watch movies on a mp4 format only,can not watch sd videos on youtube, listen to music with the help of itunes only, limited storage capacity, a nonsense finger print sensor,(do not tell me you buy your apps?I know you do jailbreak),no nfc capabilities,can not use your lightning connector to other handhelds, mono audio recording etc. the Hel^^ man think!you are not dumb!

I will be more convinced if you tell me that you bought an iphone because you like ios usefull apps which android do not have.

Smartphones are made for adults that need to communicate with each other, and carry out tasks that affect their daily lives, children like them because of games. And this page is to discuss iPhones, go to the Nexus page to discuss that, people who end up on this page are interested in iPhones.

The videos of the Nexus vs the iPhone really don't put it into perspective.The iPhone in general is more reliable, and is faster than a Nexus, the Nexus is just another Android, nothing special.

It runs more smoothly than any other smartphone... but your gaming experience is limited by the small screen. It runs smoothly... but you can't play any video you want on it. It has a premium look aluminium casing... but it breaks as easily as any other plastic phone in those crazy drop tests. It's far more expensive than any other device... That's right, no brand out there is able to beat that. =/

Regarding speeds:
On Saturday I purchased an iPhone 53 16gb from T-Mobile USA. I migrated from the LG G2 (various bugs and a screen issue), and I've used the Galaxy S3 and Note II on T-Mobile USA. In my area here in Houston TX, the S3 and Note II had faster download speeds; the LG G2 was much faster. Maybe it's just this iPhone, but it's not fast on my local area LTE as compared to my previous three phones. Using the local BN Wi-Fi, this iPhone pauses YouTube videos up to 10 times during a download. This was never experienced in my previous phones in the same location.

Regarding battery life:
I use Skype video calls, KakaoTalk, and WhatsApp several hours each day. Video calls drain the battery extremely fast. With heavy use, video chat, and running on T-Mobile's LTE, this phone will not make it through my full day.

Screen sensitivity:
I often have to press the same location on the screen several times before the iPhone registers the touch and takes action. I've only experienced this on an ancient iPod Touch.

Android will never be fast as the iOS OS...
NOTE iphone (dual core) galaxy (quad core / octa core)... and Android is still lagging... it restarts and get tooo hot because of so much power in a soo little device... Android is trying to optimise their system with powering up the specs... but it not gonna fix anything... just the phone gets overheated...
try with an Android to play 6 hours modern combat 3 multiplayer and without overheating and crashing...
my iPhone 5s didnt got hot at all... u can hold it without any problems... try that :)
