Does the update fixes the fast draining battery prob on iPhone 4S? And does this also fix the automatic shutting down on iPhone 3GS? Thnx

Dear ios user,
I am using iPhone 4S with IOS6 but I have some problems with email and music. I cannot load email properly and when I play music, it seems to work not smoothly. Any suggestions?

Being a little brighter especially on an indoor setting is only a preference that most dont need. Not to mention the superior quality of Amoled.
2. it being thinner is a preference and not a surprise for having no memory slot and a built in tiny capacity lithium polymer battery.
3. DO it's lighter because it's way smaller
4. Yes one handed use is obviously easier on a smaller device
5. the materials is actually a preference. and at least the s3 does not come out of the box scratched.
6.It may get IOS slightly quicker , but you also almost had to wait almost a month and a half for their first update to fix many bad bugs where as the s3 didnt face nearly as many and has seen needed updates way faster...and iphone is the only phone apple even works on.
7. Because it gets updated faster and for longer? Youb are saying stupid bs you dont even know to be true you would have to wait two years to even find that out. and as your previous false comment gets pointed out the s3 was actually updated faster and less buggy already. and you dont know which has more longevity the same as you dont know which will get more updates.
8. If maybeyoure looking for that extra app ios has a few more, but android hasplenty apps and some of their own exlcusive as well. they have more free ones and just as many good premium.
9.extending from the last crap i see. is often better on the ios side. That is complete isheep talk. they both have their share in similar and better or worse. trying to use one app out of all just to make your point? pathetic.
10. Yes this is the first ever durable iphone because of the aluminum casing and finally more properly tempored glass, but it also comes out of the box scratched. actually did something usefull. the charger can be plugged in either way. its alsothe downfall of being a completely unique and over priced cord.
12. a vibrate switch.....kinda useless and waisted space, but a preference to some i guess.
13. I would hope two speakers are louder then one!!! Nice failing to mention its two speakers. At that rate I would expect them to be even louder, but why do that when you have two i guess right?
14. Its only a little faster because ios is locked down and restricted not because of speed optimizations. though its newer cpu is well customized and might be the first time they ever actually customized it rather then just taking samsungs and claiming they customized it.
15. Siri is a little better. its also a huge coporation theybought and that has been worked on for a long time now.
16. talking to siri by raising phone to your head. prefernce i guess, you can also choose to activate a call that way with the s3
17. Nifty little feature with the web and font. They have to give you something with all their bs.
18.Risizing/ compressing video is also nifty for messaging is nifty. bout time they add some things after all these years of playing catch up.
19. ITUNES!? Bwahahahahahahaha! LOLOL Is crapware and not exclusive to apple products if you really want it. Yes it may possibly have more music, but play store has plenty and you can just drag and drop your music with android on any computer almost. or even hooking up flash drives and externals directly to the the phone now.
20. if find my iphone is included in the phone then yes thats a really smart thing for them to have implimented on the os. there are still many alternatives for both androdi and ios
21. UI more intuitive? Are you on crack?! There is nothing to it. It launches apps. OH MY GOD! IM BLOWN AWAY!
22. Yes its gpu is a little better. congrats. S3's is still amazing and looks better on its bigger more beautiful screen to majority.
23. im not sure about the game center weather its more than the dinkygame shown here or if its actually usefull
24.Well with only one phone a year that ends up being one of the most buggy premium phones i would damn well hope that there are many people to help specifically with that device.
25.UM HELLO! IT HAS APPLE APPS INSTALLED! You completely just lied your way through that one! What the hell seriously? Just saying stuff to make it to that 50 mark?
26. S3 has emoti icons too..Im so confused. many devices have for quite some time. how is that an advanteage? Does it have more or something?
27.Yes letting you use volume for camera shutter is a win feature for apple.
28. yes tapping top to go righ to top is nifty but as ive seen i think droids have something similar plus a swift swype will take a fraction of a second longer.
29.Choosing notification on or off or seperate way is also nifty. so is steeling androids status bar but not making it as good too i guess.
30. Steeling technology and suing others for using it does not make it better!!!!! and Some areas the s3 still has universal search. EPIC fail
31. I dont know for sure if its any text but the s3 and other phones can read aloud text too. as usual trying to take old features and claim them as awesome unique ones for the iphone.
32. Guided access looks nifty. Could also work against ya, but nice.
33. lololololololololololol. Android apps havetold you for years from the moment you go to download them what they have access to....REALLY!? COme one awaiting the next bs just to say you have 50 reasons to wish and pretend apple was better.
34. Im pretty sure Android does this in ways too, but IOS might have it slightly better
35. You can encrypt you files or sd card on s3 and get a couple apps for the extra features.
36. Keyboard shortcuts is IOS6 specific? In your dreams!
37. Accessing Siri from lock screen is cool
38. location reminder is ok, but as many other false points show i doubt its ios specific.
39. Swiping or clicking icon camera is realy prefference and definitely not ios specific.
40. Custom vibrates is ok
41. imessage also ok. couple good features
42. Android has definitely had something like VIP
43. text messaging pop up on lockscreen is nifty but could also hinder privacy. as long as its an option thats cool
44. Um....really? You think only apple devices can wirelessly mirror on to tv? And does it really only work with apple tv? Wow. Lol. Andyou people are supposed to know things here?
45.bUm. Hello you can control music from the s3 as well. Its even in their comercial.
46. Again itunes is crap! And UI is preference and definitely not everyone would say its better on iphone.Nor are gstures and shakes ios specific. and hello Samsung has had 5.1 and 7.1 and dnse out for ever not to mention EVEN OLD CRAPPY PHONES HAD EQUALIZERS!
47. I dont know about passbook, but seeming how half the other things here are lies I can assume there is an equvilant.
48. That does not proof its more popular. It just shows that there are more accessories for one phone as compared to one out of a whole line up.
49. Not sure about this either, but again probaly as decisive as the rest.
50. For the last time. Itunes may offer a couple features but its an extreme hinderence in overall and thing like it. NOT

Hers's another youtube link with 50 reasons why the Galaxy S3 is better than the iphone 5, and guess what, it's done by the SAME guy in the video you posted lol.
Type it into youtube and look at the viewing figures, 10s of thousands for the iphone5, and hundreds of thousands for the galaxy s3. Oh and take a look at the comments under the video

Wasn't paying much attention to iPhone as my next upgrade. But with so many bad mouthing iPhone here, Apple must've really made a product worth bad mouthing. I have to fit iPhone in my possible next upgrade list.

Look how the ipad is advertised as having a 5mp isight camera (not front facing). Nevertheless, it is still ridiculous. Putting a fancy name to common hardware just to make it sound more "innovative".

The SGS1 was shown to run ICS, and Touchwiz was changed dramitically for the SGS3, yet can run on the SGS2.
