They dont even care what they do need or what they should have. I guess you are like them. No offense. If you remain happy using a stupid iPhone and always think like " yeah I am like the celebrities and unlike common people" then thats good for you. good luck. only wise people know what they really need and do according to that.

Samsung = F.C.Barcelona - Practical, down to earth, brilliant play (features), new developments (new youth players), spending investments to invest more..

Apple = Real Madrid - Expensive, Prestigious, Overhyped, amazing presentations, worldwide reach and you get to say "I have an apple/I play in real Madrid so I can take a dump on your front porch"

Same with a Tag watch. You can buy Casio for $50. but its not the same thing. Some ugly girl or guy, compared with orlando bloom or Mila Kunis.. Sorry but things are not all the same.. and if you cant get it.. dont hate. Just suck it up and try harder.

$849 for a dual core phone... SOOOO LUUULLZZ!!

You can buy THREE!! Google Nexus 4 for just $897. Each of them being absolutelly superior in every aspect (except internal memory but with Dropbox, Google+ and other clouds services thats ends being kinda irrelevant) than the iPhone5.

So sad how many people is blind to buy things because "people tell them they are the best" but they have no real idea why their phones are so expensive, just because "they are iPhones" lol. iPhones are good devices indeed, but ridiculous and non justified overpriced.

I know the strengths and weaknesses of each one. I won't say that the Galaxy is absolutely better, it depends on the user but I prefer the Galaxy BY FAR. May be "YOU"... do not understand the joy of owning an Android device. So pleeeeeease do not think that all people are idumbs !!!

Why pay so much for a obsolete phone (same widgets, impossible to have different size, colors and live) plus need to buy a connector! really Lumia 920 has a better resolution, bigger screen, better camera, free navigation working off... and much cheaper!

The price doesn't justify the product, it is the product that justifies the price. Apple is trying to fool people into thinking iphones are great. Its not every trend that american superstars set is ok, most of the trends are dumb, duh!

He said 3.5" is the PERFECT size for a mobile phone screen. And now, the iphone5 comes with 4" screen. What say you?

He said 7" tablets would be dead on arrival. And now, apple launched 7" ipad mini. What say u?

My 5 year old samsung phone can transfer file via bluetooth. And the divine iphone cannot. What say u?

My 5 year old samsung phone supports external storage. And your holy iphone and ipad cannot. What say u?

In Japan, most phone have NFC. Japan is one of the technologically advanced country in the field of mobile communication. So, u say Japan is outdated then?

I noted two things here
1. The fact that the US prices are the same all these years despite the more expensive hardware shows that Apple is seriously jacking up the prices on these phones. So unless it sells even better than the iph4s we can expect a fall in profits since marginal revenue will b less
2. There is no doubt in my mind that the drastic increase in the UK price is Apple's retaliation for having to publicly say Samsung did not copy them. Apple is like a little child smh I hope people in the UK see what is happeining and decide not to buy the iph5
