"Folks, to quote our Darcy LaCouvee, the iPhone 5 is “rock solid”. It’s not often that you see such words on Android Authority. What could have pushed Darcy, an Android fanatic, to utter such radical words?
Well, as much as we hate to admit it, the iPhone 5 did amazingly well in our drop test, while the Samsung Galaxy S3 came out in pretty bad shape. It’s the cold hard truth that we can’t hide and we can’t ignore.
This morning in Hong Kong, Darcy dropped the Galaxy S3 and the iPhone 5 a total of four times, each time from an increasing height. To make our drop test more realistic, we tried to recreate the accidents that happen most often in real life. We ruthlessly let the two devices fall to the hard pavement, just to see what happens. Needless to say, it wasn’t pretty. See for yourselves. Dayum!"
Anonymous, 22 Sep 2012Did you guys see the drop test comparing iphone 5 to samsung gs3? yup,i saw it.that was the greatest upgrade in apple iphone 5 so far i've seen at the moment......LOL.
Dont care even if 100 million was sold in a minute..people bought what they want..and if they are happy,thats a good thing,..but i hate "i,i,i..",i love 'you'you' only you'...esp in the field of technology..samjha...
brandnew234, 21 Sep 2012Why? Because lugging around a phone, tablet, and camera is cumbersome and a phone is cheaper t... moreandroid doesnt even allow you to download full maps. (Tom Tom, Magellen, Garmin they all allow full map download) Iphone has so many great apps compared to what android has. Dont get me wrong I like android for what it is and I like ios for what it is. For pleasure I go android all the way with great apps like torrent, music wizard and etc but for work iphone has way better apps like a real gps app that even works when theirs no reception. and apps like in.sight, St@sh, podcast and etc
iPhone Fanboy, 22 Sep 2012iPhone 5 is insanely much superior than Galaxy S3 in many ways such as quality & reliabili... moreYes because people are going to buy phones to drop them off. SGS 3 has superior hardware, deal with it and keep it in your stomach.
Anonymous, 22 Sep 2012No new invention, behind technology!You feel that way because iPhone 5 is always 5 years ahead of Galaxy S3.
iPhone Fanboy, 22 Sep 2012iPhone 5 is insanely much superior than Galaxy S3 in many ways such as quality & reliabili... moreso that makes it better overall? Did you know that ip5 doesn't have removable battery? Those are the pros and cons if you know them. You can't replace iphone 5's battery by yourself poor thing. Smartphones are precious gadgets why not buy a protective case and protect your super expensive smartphone? I doubt that nobody will buy a case for their luxurious iphone 5. As well as for S3 to say. At the end of the day Android still has the best customization and much more functions available for users.
the dual core CPU of your precious Apple iPhone 5 is made by Samsung. So please shut up and you have nothing to be proud of vs Samsung.
iPhone 5 is insanely much superior than Galaxy S3 in many ways such as quality & reliability, appearance, feel...etc.
Galaxy S3 can break easily with back cover flying out while dropping from a height of a man but iPhone 5 remains intact.
Didn't samsung sell 10 mil galaxy s3 on just pre-orders alone, even without all this crazy and biased free PR, hype, brainwashing from media and analysts that Apple always gets?
So why is this such a big deal?
Reading between the lines, shall we sell our Apple stocks now?
Why don't you ask yourself why people buys cars that worth millions of rand? If you earn half a million annually which phone will you use? It's all about money... if you can't afford iPhone go and buy Nokia 3310.
Anonymous, 22 Sep 2012Have to wonder how many Samsung employees post here to try to make their products look better ... moreWhat's with all these butthurt Apple employees here?
Apple: Mac vs PC ads LOL
Whenever some manufacturer makes a better phone than Apple, Apple says, "HURR STOP COPYING US!!!"
To the soundtrack of a whistled, discordant and down-tempo version of "Heigh-Ho", a long line of blindfolded businesspersons slowly makes its way through a dusty, windswept landscape to a cliff, where one by one they fall to their doom. A voiceover notes that the 'Macintosh Office' will soon be announced. The last businessperson in the line stops just at the brink, uncovers his eyes and takes in the situation, as the announcer states "you can look into it". A second line of people is then shown, as the announcer continues, "or you can go on with business as usual".(Wikipedia)
In the 80's apple came up with the "Lemmings" advertising commercial for their Macintosh Office (failure). Guess what... today, Apple's iPhone is the Lemming's magnet! iLemmings take off the blindfold...
Your favorite company can no longer out-innovate competition, so they're resorting to lawsuits instead. Before, it was like: "Go ahead and copy. Before you're done, we're already ten steps ahead." which encouraged innovation from within apple and competitors, and was good for consumers.
