They will show it off to their friends, see I got iPhone. I pre ordered it and got it before others could. And guess the reaction of an Android Geek ----> *facepalm*

The test results are nothing short of amazing?
What is amazing is that Apple's new iPhone SUCKS.
I expected the new iPhone (5) to be BETTER than anything else on the market...not WORSE than a phone that was released over 3 months ago.
The iPhone 5 is a (techonological) became outdated before it was released.
( NFC to swipe like memory replaceable NANO SIM meaning your old SIM won't work...)
There are so many things that they could have done with the iPhone 5.
Instead of giving us a TRUE new generation phone, Apple gave us repackaged GARBAGE.
Thanks alot Apple...If you manage to get iPhone 6 right, I'll upgrade my iPhone 4 then.

Did u ever notice how the 4S or the IPad never ever ever slow down? Yet, even the tegra 3 quad core transformer prime managed to hang at simple menu switching animations. The 4S has a dual core 800mhz CPU and it managed to out benchmark the Galaxy s2 running a dual core CPU at 1.2ghz. Check your facts my friend..

This is reason enough for many people to stay with iPhone. Those who hate Android will not pick an Android phone even if it outperforms iPhone by 1000%.
