I sold it and bought Samsung Galaxy S3 and it's a little bit better than the one S but it lags too. I am on Iphone 4S and it doesn't lag. Everything plays smoothly. No lagging in games. People should try phones before they post on gsmarena.com. If you haven't used a phone before, don't post lies about it.

I can see here Apple creating new religion, no matter what they doing, how little they trying upgrade most worst phone you can get for 500 pound people love it and that's it, next year apple will release iPhone 5 pre-s with upgraded pin connector it will features 7 pin instead of 8 and will break another records in sales, hail the apple!!!!!

It's not about quality, specs or performance, it is sth purely related to trend. Less than 1% of the customers make an analysis before buying a phone. The others get attracted to (or trapped in) publicity. The more it is debated, more people want it, whatever it is worth or rationale. Anyway, congratulations to Apple! They seem damn brave selling a 'status' phone, competing so even the Vertu likes.

But the lag on the S3 isn't as bad as the HTC One X.
Even watching the video of the new LG optimus G showed lag.

Windows Phone 8 should run nicely on the S4 chip.

THE IP5 Gsmarena measures 4 inches maths Pythagoras
A^2=B^2+C^2
3.2 X 2.4 inches. screen area 7.68
THE IP4S Gsmarena measures 3.5 inches maths Pythagoras
2.8 X 2.1 inches. screen area 5.88

Albeit 30.61% increase in Total screen area adding a 5th row means the icons are now smaller?

I have hands on the IP5 which WILL no doubt be better than the IP4S in being lighter and quicker, but for all those shaved off nanoseconds amount to what over 2 years.

it's the hefty price tag that some are willing to pay
Still NO expansion and ITUNES which many find restrictive
