Apple iPhone 5 prices for UK and the rest of Europe revealed - read the full textThe UK prices for the iPhone 5 will start from 529 (around 660) for the 16GB variety. The German and French SIM-free prices start from 679. Since the German and French pricing is the same, I guess those would be the starting prices for the Apple iPhone 5 lineup throughout most of...

I dodnt understand complains about plastic parts on Samsung. What is the difference is you still going to keep it in a case all the time. Plus it makes the phone lighter so when you'll drop it it will have less chances to broke.

I have reviewed most of the phones, from S3 to Apple-4S.
First come to hardware part
Some say we have better hardware CPU: Quad-Core.A-5 Chip, 1 GB RAM, 512, 1GB ROM. Do you think that android can use immense hardware? From my point of view is NO. It is just gimmick only. Already phone OS (android/Apple) are already optimized by phone manufacturers time to time and device dependency. A big phone hardware pictures are shown in comparisons, to boost their sales.
They make certain changes and the price of that thing increase up-to 30 to 40 percent.
And the second they have monopoly launching the phones country wise.

too expansive, it only has a metal heavy body, but the hardware still low quality. I wonder, can iphone 5 vs GLS III or HTC one XL run benchmark?

Consumers who wish to go down the iPhone 5 route on an unlocked outright purchase basis can pick the bottom of the range 16GB version up for $649.00. Stepping up a tier will raise the price by $100.00 with the 32GB model retailing at $749.00 and the top of the range 64GB iPhone 5 costing $849.00. The unlocked devices are a fantastic offering for the customer, but come in three different flavors that each provide their own support for 4G connectivity on various networks.

if someone want to experience iOS without paying alot, just but an ipod touch.
i have ipod touch4 and galaxy note. Actually i was eager to buy iphone5. But after saw it, i disappointed.
So my plan is to buy ipod touch5, and saving for galaxy note 2.

Galaxy note2 is more worthy than iphone5

FTW....£529 for 16gb which means £629 for the 32gb which is the only memory size worth having unless it is 64gb, presumably, £729. As they fools and their money are easily parted. If you've got the iP4s, stick with it or go android and get better value/phone for your money.....

Even I liked Samsung Galaxy SIII, but my next phone will be Nokia Lumia 920!
Batteries it's no doubt much better had Nokia
Screen resolution slightly bigger and slightly brighter on Nokia
Photo camera no doubt much better on Nokia and best in all kind smart phone range.

Also Nokia Windows 8 will have integration with Microsoft Office. Only one Nokia got disadvantage - WEIGHT!

Here you can compare both of them:

Happy GS2 user
