It's amazing how Africa is never considered part of "the world " the iPhone only sells to people who don't know better or are just brand junkies , Android still the leading OS in the continent in smartphone terms , BlackBerry is the most sold because of the communication packages .

smartphones back then weren't their forte.

I wanted to hear some comments about the less heard companies and how their quality is, from the users who have tried their products. But all I hear is how Apple is better and how android is best. C'mon guys, life still goes on.

first of all , let me face palm 1st .

You just swallow everything apple feed you . "2 times , retina " isnt a industry standard . The 4s is dual cortex A9 clocked at 800mhz , so if iphone 5 is 2 times it would be quad A9 level . Its not considered as top for today standard .

And its isnt on the top of benchmark test also . The 1st place on benchmark ranking is quacolm s4 pro following by exynos 44xx .

But in case of Samsung, they release many models therfore customers have a choice which one to buy. If you compare the no of smartphones apple and Samsung sold since launch of iphone 5 samsung will definitely win
