Even if you can, real people too busy with their job and life and can simply order it on-line...

So what is so special or significant about the 8 million prediction, which is not even the pre-order? Galaxy S3 sold 10 million in pre-orders alone.

that figure includes the black market sales to china.
As u cant sell the iphone in china with facebook and other restrictions on it. But u can by illegilly from hong kong and other places

Samsungs galaxy s3 figures do not include the amount of phones sold in china. As they already have the restrictions on the phone to china specs.

See there you go again. Lying and putting words in my mouth. I have never once claimed Android never lagged. In fact I have admitted it every time. You purposely worded that in that way because that seems to be the manipulating way you work your pathetic trolling.

The issue is that you keep going around saying Android lags excessively and that your windows phone...or in return to your name calling LagPhone..Lol.. Is supposedly 100% lag free and perfect. What I have stated is that no system runs perfect.

by q8qQ.

Yes Android doesn't lag and has never been
described in reviews as been laggy or buggy either.
Jellybean is only adding features and has nothing to
do with trying to make user experience smooth and lag free due to continuous complaints from users.

I'm Sorry for spreading lies.
and I'm jealous.

all apple haters i dont know why you guys hate apple iphone 5. it is a excellent phone and more fast than samsung galaxy s3.first use it and then say anything about it as most of you commenting about apple iphone 5 have not even tried any iphone product ever in their life because if you even use an iphone you will not like any other smart phone.sales of iphone 5 will say how good and how bad it is.

Comeone guys. Buggy maps dose'nt means that whole phone is buggy. Its jst one app. and they gona resolve thier issues in the next update. Iphone still the fastest and smoothest phone. Jst saw the benchmarks how iphone beats the android top phones. Its not means that android is not good. SGS3 and ONE X are exceptional phones but iphone jst have better performance.

Seriously..i rewatched those Samsung versus Apple adds of last year(S2 v/s 4s) and could not come to grips to what apple has done. It has added what ever feature was missing(which the advert points out) when the Samsung S2 came out and remarketed it as an IP5. Talk about irony and talk about who is really innovating?

i dont think this time apple is going to get a big market for Iphone 5. cause people had been expecting a breakthrough out of them. but not a big change other than the shape. so really unexpected performance from Apple. very much disappointing.

crappy app from crappy crApple.
it's not Google Maps, it's called crappy mApple.

it has lots of features:

iLost the street, iLost the city
iLost the country including the Statue of Libery

if these features are bugging you
don't worry Google is coming to the rescue
