Motorola has been a very good company though the phones quality is quite insignificant to it. Yet as Google Inc. gain Moto, on the other hand, it will be a nice fight between Apple baby and Google Boy.. Good thing that their patent license will be less steal in their part..!

So it lags and crashes too while being nothing but an app launcher. Just slightly less unless you where a 4s that crashed and messed up more. Then you have droid that may hang a tad more, but not drastically while being a not jail celled system that actually runs more like a whole PC system. Then a whole bunch of idiots run around saying apple invented everything, is the best, never crashes hangs lags freezes or anything even once and claim they don't need anything that apple tells them they don't need.

Just a heads up i am in a senior role with a major telco and Android is what the tech support department say make up 85% - 90% of major/minor faults are Android and take 2 - 3 times longer to resolve....Ill take restricted and working thanks.

I am a great fan of APPLE and have been using apple since 2006 starting with apple ipod shuffle...however if the apple has copied the patents, then its really pathetic for the company like APPLE as the customers trust them and this brand....by copying the patents they are trying to take the engineers rights as well as cheating them....not appreciated APPLE!!! Also if MOTOROLA trying to just play with APPLE by filing fake lawsuits then u r nowehere today and will not exist in the future...

No, it is not okay, that a company I like sues, but the game changed and to be on top you have to change with it, Apple started that Gamechanging policy and now has to taste its own baked cake. It was uncompetetive and unfair, this way, it starts to be fair in an uncompetetive way. If someone punched u in the face every day for the next 3-4 years, you want to tell me, that you would never punch back, because it is unfair or because it is ok, because the guy standing next to u likes u and tells u its okay? BS!

Why should Google/Moto have a huge amount of patents and not use them, if Apple uses its own patents for each shit. Bounce effect, rounded corners and such stuff. It is ok, if apple sues everyone, but the ones who made real innovation, stuff a normal person would not see, but is there and makes the things work like they do now, komplex systems only an engineer would understand, real science so to say, but thats worth nothing, not allowed to sue over something like that? But it is okay for Apple to sue over some crappy design, yeah right. iFans really say anything in here, to defend Apple... why do you care? Will your iPhone get banned? No, only new ones of those models which get banned. Big mouth when Apple "deserves to sue over something that is definetly their own". See, Apple did not buy licences from Moto, now they pay differently. Sammy didnt buy Apples licences, because it was hilarious, what apple wanted for that deal. 30-40$ for each device and you get apples patent portfolio made of bounce effects and slide to unlock crap, but they were really generous to offer a 25% discount in order to get Sammy patent portfolio^^. Apple patentportfolio costs apple maybe 10 million, Sammy had to put in like a billion or more to get their patents, so who is evil in this game, who is uncompetitive and tries to act like an angel with its white colour?

Oh well... Google wasn't supposed to interfere on Motorola operations...

But if Google were to bring out the big guns and counter attack Apple, it will be fun. Most of the times, Apple is the aggressor. Guess its about time for Apple to taste their own medicine. Then we can stop the crap law suits once and for all. At least most of it.

A 700USD graphic card is easily top of the line and the mac doesn't carry that. For the same specs, anyone can easily DIY a computer of mac specs at a fraction of the cost.

Why ain't you comparing the 60USD graphic cards against the mac?

Another lawsuit...from a drowning company, I would not buy a Motorola product if you PAID me.
This is getting out of control,just focus on selling and innovating rather than suing people!
I dont see an end from Apple as they have a loyal fanbase and good products to match, who cares if Apple is restricted?
If you dont like Apple, move along get a life and let those who enjoy Apple products do so without your pointless and repetitive garbage coming from your mouth.
If you get wound up over a phone as much as i have seem on GSMarena, you need a life, you need to get outdoors and you NEED to get laid and stop worrying about if your phone is better than the person next to you and BRACE YOURSELF....the probably dont care how restrictive/un-restrictive their phone is!
