Yeah Apple acts childish by suing other company, which clearly shows they are afraid of others success and afraid of losing their customers.

Yeah MAC is damn too pricey, and you can't just visit different shops to build a MAC, unlike PC.

Yeah it's a cheap phone, not a good multimedia phone. But a lot of people are still using it specially in our country. Blackberry is like a 2 way radio, not that popular but very usefull.

Unlike your iP5 which is pricey and you have to pay for everything and it lacks basic features like i mentioned earlier. Oh I can't even expand the memory of iPhone at least my berry can expand up to 32GB and can swap anytime I want.

It's sad knowing, the most expensive phone on the market, is not the best phone, with bad apps, bad easy to scuff, scratch and even dent material, not the best hardware. But yet most selling phone. What could people thinking when they bought it? for the top brand? but it couldn't be a top brand if consumer smart enough to value their money for the things they bought.

Hello, GSMArena

Just had an idea about an article you should write: How much does it cost to get a phone with a contract in comparison to buing an unlocked phone and get the carrier deal separately? Is there any difference in the costs?

Lumia 920 beats iPhone 5 in display/screen, camera, and just about everything else. iPhone 5 has nothing that tells me to buy an iPhone 5 instead of the Lumia 920. Apple stopped innovating since the iPhone 4.

Why people spend a fortune on iPhone for the functions that they don't use? The cheapest Android phone will serve the purpose anyway!

'Phone crazy' make me still keeping all my Nokia-(N-gage QD,N80,N95,N95-8G,N97-Mini,E72,E90,N8&Lumia8­00), HTC-(HD2,Desire-HD,Evo-3D,Sensation) & Samsung-(Galaxy S2,Galaxy Note,Galaxy S3). Now i m using Blackberry Porsche + Iphone 4s + GS3 + Iphone 5 (just got it 2days ago). Now I love & proud using my Bb & Iphone much which i hated 3years ago. Funny, there is something u never know why i say my Iphone is nicer than my Blackberry. Bluetooth, battery, external storage, keypad etc is just a simple thing when discussing about smartphone..bcoz there are 'something different' inside 'There' u must have a try & feel with open heart.

Yes, it is easy to teach elderly to use iPhone and my 5 years old using it to watch youtube as well, but should we educate our customer that there is a cheaper options to do the same thing? Our business was bad in the past 2 months all because of the speculation of the iPhone 5 coming out, people wait and see; I just blame myself that I did not push harder to educate our customer.

Just wondering how many people from those 5 millions know what is Siri, Facetime, App store and iTune. I already have 20 people in my list.
