buying iphone 5 is a waste of time.. waiting with a very long que and wasting money people don't realized that they're paying for huge for a mobile phone which not so good for a smartphone.. people is just paying for it's name.... s3 is superb.. it value what people really spent for a mobile.. i know s3 is also expensive.. but every money you spent on that mobile.. counts....... waiting for the note 2

okay its out, the phone is not as hyped as the fans make it. compare the specs to any high end smartphone and you wont be all that impressed.

i have a very different take on recent events. I heard of a survey conducted on those people waiting in front of stores . It said that almost 80 % of them were previous apple users . Less than 10% were android users and remaining were using other platforms like blackberry and windows phone. This news may be a bogus but it is still interesting to see that the new iphone created very little interest in users other than apple .

But still...all that lines are already Apple users...the difference from 4S to this one is nonsense because is obvious many of iPhone 4 users stayed in home and decided not to buy 4S for being so similar...but now here they are...and maybe a few 3GS users amongst them ahaha good luck with your new taller device with a design you never seen before uahaaaah

If that prediction comes true, Samsung Galaxy S3 sales from the day it launched will look like a big joke
