It's gotten to the point where they negate any value of the comment section. Just look at DAN13L. Guy has an Atrix yet, masquerades as an iPhone user.

Apple should recall itz ipad 3 which has a pink tint issue.

Here in India, Apple behaves as if they do not know what a pink tint issue on the display means. Apple is a FRAUD. Cheats.

Steve after you left the World, Sweet Apple has become SOUR.

Cheers!!

Other companies have faulty products too. I had to return my HTC with a failed logic board, googled and found that others had the same problem. It was a Wildfire S, not top notch but not cheap either (just like any HTC). So? It happens to all phones but only iPhone-related problems make it to the headlines.

Now, under Tim Cook, Apple apologizes, slows down production and what not, but trolls come and write nonsense. What is acceptable for you guys?

Look at the Android articles above and below this one. The people talking about Apple or iPhone are Android fans. The truth hurts. Android fanboys have become (many times over) the Apple fanboys of yesteryear.

As completely different OS's you can't run all the same benchmarks. Sure, i5 beats SGS3 in a few, but this leads to the next issue in that benchmarks don't always indicate real world performance.

Then there are all the subjective issues - which is probably the majority. Larger screen vs smaller, saturated (very bright) colours vs more natural, Closed ecosystem vs open source fully customiseable. look / feel / quality of finish & materials... all is individual preferences and this isn't even the tip of the iceberg!

Which is better depends on the individual and their need/preferences.
