Whichever way you want to view it, the truth is that apple makes good quality phones. They are very good at what the do and they take their time to work on their products. Having said that, I also want to say that there can never be a perfect phone if you think deep. I love htc, Samsung, nokia and also blackberry and also iphones. Whichever one I feel like buying, I buy and when I'm tired of it, I discard it. That's it.

nope youre wrong, youre really typical iphone user,i dont use iphone because i dont like the UI and the OS. not because i cant afford it, i bought sgs2 directly after launch and im still loving it until now.

apps and technology? please -,- a phone that can only connect to itunes without special tweaking. best camera? its iphone 4s's camera with new lens cover. look at nokia 920 it has a active image stabilisation , and not just a software tweak.Say 3 things (not including apple service) that iphone can do but android cant an android user and i like it, iphone is actually a good phone but it simply cant do what i wanted it to do, and what makes iphone name bad its the act of people that using it, just like you who thinks all people that dont buy apples phone just merely because they cant afford it. you simply wont look around , just blindly believing what apple told you.

oh have are you waiting at the front of apple store right now? i bet youre :P

And yet I do not care for such product, I'm all fine with my LG GW520, at least it has a full qwerty keyboard, rather than a mini-cinema screen.

Maybe that's why Samsung made that ad. They are getting scared.

Oh, while I have never owned an iDevice, i have played with multiple iterations of the iphone from the 3gs to the 4s -.-

most of the android users hate iphone because of several following reason :-
iphone is expensive, they cant afford it
ios lies above all in terms of apps and technology
android users make themselves happy by believing that since they can't afford it so its bad
most of the android users have not even used latest iphone in their whole lives so most of them are unknown about the on the hand experience of iphone
when iphone 5 was launches they just saw it marely n said its bad
camera quality of iphone is superior then anyphone but they just know how to count it in terms of mps
although i am sgs3 user but i admit to the fact that iphone 5 is a good phone.
sorry cant live in a fake world by calling it bad
and result will speak in the end numbers matter
2 million iphone got booked in just 24 hrs whereas sgs3 took 2 n half months to reach the benchmark
i have seen because of above reasons android users hate iphone & iphone users just give a dammmm
And last but not the least one bitter fact , one who lies on top will always be criticised the most ....
