You should learn to be happy with some other "things" regardless of the money you have . P.S. Only thing better in iPhone (say "4S" ) than in Samsung (say Galaxy S2 ) is its materials and maybe audio quality . . . Hoping for Apple to implement bluetooth sharing,support for a wider variety of video and audio codecs and native mass storage mode ,and then it might be practical as Androids out there .

Sale management personal are rubbing their hands because of people like you . . . waste of water and carbon-based matter . And I doubt you have that kind of money ... you would not come to GSMArena to look for this kind of stories because you would not care what the hell is going on with technology these days .... you would just buy what is most expensive and be done with it .

I'm not even in that kind of people, but i've been using 3GS, 4, 4S. And im no longer satisfied with apple! It looks the same! Try Android once, you'll know what I mean.

You're joking right? You're talking about an OS that is on many different spec smartphones here. Every different region version of ICS is an update. Tek the SGS2. It has LP1 to LPT and loads in between.

it is simple: if you have money enough you eat overpriced food in restaurants three times per day, spend money on exclusive products like apple products,pagani zonda cars,overpriced of course,but wich will make you be more happy and people start to envy you. apple products is gor another league,wich do not care about certain adroid advantages. personally i have iphone for its powerful headphones amplifier,the best device for music,photo,vidoe,interne,talk,alltogether,but especially the music department is superb. if you are a geek, a hunter of specifications,but tasteless,you can live happy with samsung,lg,huawei. personally, i can't. i have money. wht a pitty for you

I have one requirements for mobile Operating systems. Never lock up. I am yet to find any touch screen OS that is compliant with this requirements. I have tried all; 3GS, Vibrant, N8, HTC Advantage. they all locked early and often... In my experience dumb phone OS's don't have these issues for the first year or so of operations.

What did they copy? Green phone for calling (like in many many phones before the iPhone)? Cloud shaped dialogs (like in the comics and many other graphic arts)? Gear/wrench shape for settings or person shaped silhouettes for contacts (I'm not even gonna explain those)?

Do yourself a favor and

you dont hear Benz bitching about how Ford "copied" the concept of an "horseless carriage that operates on a gasoline powered internal combustion engine" from them.

if Apple wants to prove how good their products are, prove it through sales. not revenue - but volume of units sold. the better company should have more volume sold.

Too many Apple fanboys here. Yeah, Android copied a lot of stuff from iPhone in its early days but then, with 2.3 Gingerbread, Android became undeniably better than iOS, and look at the situation now. Apple copying from Android, trying (and miserably failing) to catch up. And on top of that, Apple uses marketing tactics to create an illusion that everything works perfectly and hide the lack of basic functionality.
However, Android isn't perfect either. In 2011, almost EVERY SINGLE Android was great, and that's why I call 2011 "The year of Android's victory". Now in 2012, however, things aren't that great. While Google secretly tries to pull Android away from microSD card slots and USB mass storage, HTC can't get a single phone right (that's right, ALL OF THEM SUCK), Sony and Samsung still make Gingerbread phones although ICS has been introduced 9 montwhs ago. It seems that Android will fall apart in about 5 years. Still, it's light years ahead of iPhone.

Well all we know is that after the lawsuits suddenly SGS3 was totally different from any Apple product lol, in a way, an admission by Samsung of previous copying.

They will probably be kicking themselves and salivating looking at what they cannot copy at the iPhone 5 launch woot!
