Do not worry folks. They will release software update that will turn you dual core phone into single.After that you will get good battery life and poor apps performance.That is the life with apple products. They are good only as fashionable accessories.I am rich, why not buying an apple.

With great power comes great responsibility.. TO CHARGE YOUR PHONE!! ;-)

Seriously though, makes a change from Apple fans poking fun at the poor battery of their power sucking dual core Android counterparts, but sure there will be some excuse now the shoe's on the other foot..

I know what it's like, sorry Apple people. You see, my Nokia has a battery problem too - I keep abusing it, using it for everything, all the time and everywhere, and my battery lasts two days. They told me it should last one day. Maybe I should complain directly to Nokia and ask for a replacement...

Again, focusing on the positives, AirPlay Mirroring (with Apple TV) turn your iPhone 4S into a wireless console.

Electric Guitar on iPad using GarageBand. GarageBand was just made available on iPhone as well, so you can now carry a music studio around in your pocket.

bit concerned how a software update will actually sort out a hardware fault. the battery is not big enough power wise. so they a bigger mah battery. not an update.

ithink that is the ianswer to this iproblem. isimples.

dont get me wrong, not every android phone is amazing - but that is the point, there is a phone for everyone, from the basic users (who would suit apple) to the advanced users (who suite the GS2 or HTC Sensation)

the bottom line is apple make great phones, Samsung make (more) great phones, they steal some ideas, but so does everyone.

People keep coming on here just to throw rocks, and most who slag off the oppositon either have never used the product, or do not know how to use it to its full potential.

we all know apple fans love Apple, and samsung fans love samsung. however your both wrong. neither of you should soley commit to one brand. your just being stupid.
