One thing I have noticed about Apple Fans, is that they don't usually read websites like this. They aren't bothered about benchmarks or what resolution their screen is, most just appreciate the iphone for the high end device that it is. And they make more use out of its key features more than Android fans do.

Apple has taken Nokias crown in that respect.

2. If you need your smartphone's housing to be light for you to feel good, you should get a doctor or psychologist ASAP.
3. If using a phone's screen fatigues you, you should excersice more often. (Btw, wasn't 3.5 inches the perfect size?)
4. Retina display, speaker and camera like never before? I thought those features were out there for 2 years already.
5. I've seen latest WP and Android flagships operating. Buttery smooth applies to all of them.
6. iPhone 5 is the ONLY phone created by Apple after SJ passed away. It's clearly the best though.
7. They're surely reingeneering, but not because of the reason you mentioned. I'm sure GS4 will look nothing like iPhone 5.

Omg.i have noticed dat iphone fan boys or loyalists are saying dat they hate cheap plastic that too when they are comparing ios and android os!Noob iphone(y) fans can only blame sgs3's "cheap"plastic body and pentile matrix because thay don't have any choice reason being that samsung galaxy s3 is far better in everything else but plastic body and pentile matrix than ip5.I guess the noobs will dig deep to find more flaws with the sgs3 !Why kiddos why are you people not able to compare the hardware?Scared ifans?Also when talking about android you think only samsung has android os and htc,sony and lg run on some imaginary os ?Here aswell ip5 fans are scared to compare xperia T and htc one x.Lmao i doubt you won't be able to use your as usual "cheap plastic" term for htc one x...hahaha...Stupid apple loyalists.When crApple said wireless charging is not required for now apple fan boys will support it even though d ip5 fans admired Nokia lumia 920's wireless technology !!!Get some life

I'm going to do what any sane person does. Wait and see what the reviews say about the iphone before buying one. It will be only part of my decision as I've experienced iOS before and liked it/

im using sgs 2 and i rember exactly whay iphone fanboys said, that the lightness of my phone (116gr) make it feel cheap. now look -,-

they said 3.5 is the perfect size, and my 4.3 inch AMOLED is too big to hold.now they have 4 inch elongated LG's IPS LCD display. even xperia s have bigger screen +more ppi density + BRAVIA engine -,-

its surely the best phone ever created by apple because its an update from 4s -,- (duh)

yes thats right!inferior engineering of samsung has created ram module and modified chip for like all iphone's.

About being cheerleader of a company to get nothing on exchange, sure you are right, it is quite silly. And for sure I don't live neither in a bubble nor artificially content/happy, I just try to get my facts straight.

there is nothing new in IP5 except 4" screen, iOS 6 and A-6 Chip. Where is Apple's creativity?!! I think its gone with Steve.. No more..

> In reply to [deleted post]yes and no. Yes there are foolish fan boys in everybrand.... but you have to remember apple entered the cell phone market about 5-6 years ago, and back then it they didnt have these fanboys. Alot of people switched from blackberry and even android just because its a stable product. The fact is, android cannot provide the support that apple can....and not to mention the compatibility between other apple products (which is probably the reason majority of apple fans are apple fans).

..regardless, nokia is gonna take a HUGE hit on both apple and android with WP8. There will be a third horse in this race very soon, and i wanna see it stomp all over google/droid (aka. a pathetic excuse for an OS).

Only Apple consistently innovates and creates new iPhone each year.

iPhone 5 might be a great phone but Galaxy Note 2 is God of smartphone right now,.........because the customization power you get in Android device you will never get that in iPhone.
Apple wants to make it UI buttery smooth that's why they don't give you customization power.
