we all decide for ourselves what's worth it and what's not. i think iPhone is definetly worth it, but not everyone agrees, and that's fine. you can basicly have all the necessities on a cheaper Android too, but i love how "premium" iPhone looks and feels to use.

it's like "why would you buy a Ferrari when you can get from point A to point B with a cheaper Prius too?" i love quality, and i'm willing to pay from it, if can afford to do it. unfortunately, i often can't...

overpriced? maybe not, seeing that Android manufacturers haven't come even CLOSE in build quality. i would've paid the same price from premium Android hardware, but it doesn't exist. yet. according to rumors Sony is at it.

It's pretty laggy for me because of all the crap I have in there. But i love Noth of the device as each has its strengths.

My experience with iOS is good. Smooth and stable despite the insane restriction.

But what i don't like about iphone is the price. Way overpriced.

p.s i use galaxy note2 which is more powerful and capable, yet a bit cheaper than the lowest spec iphone5

For those who never had experience yet with iPhone, please stop talking BS words. You need to own it first then you can talk, as far as I know I love iPhone. iPhone 5 is my 4th iPhone very tin and yet light weight. The iCloud oh super cool.

I cannot say something about Samsung galaxy’s because I never had it and maybe never will. But with HTC I had once & I don't like the android OS.

if iphone is tagged with unlocked price in US, will it still be popular and sells like hot cake?

Here in Indonesia, ipad is very popular, but not iphone. It is extremely expnesive. I can get a good quality laptop with a price of the lowest spec iphone

There are those who can buy an iPhone easily, and there are those who use hard earned money. Those who afford apps and those who jailbreak. Likewise in Android, there are those who easily buy high end, and those who buy low end. Those who buy apps, and those who download free.

Conclusion is, stereotyping either platform is a waste of time, as it involves millions of people. Buy what you like, and enjoy!

Basically apple fanbase is split into 2 sides.The one that can afford the phone but not the apps and the ones who can afford both.Yet those who can afford both the over priced phone and app told the once who cant afford the apps to go get an android and the jailbreakers are called the "cheapskate".

While in the android community everyone is treated equally.
