Multi view is a great function to have that i will personally use everyday, and the revamp of the image gallery is to give touchwiz some new faces. your iphone 5 will always look the same as it did since the iphone 3g. The lumia 920 has a better screen than your retina crap lol tell apple to stop using title terms when its been proven the lumia has a better screen. By the way there is no need to worry about our battery dying because from what the endurance tests shows the iphone is barely any better on battery than the s3, but hey atleast i can remove my battery :)

multitasking = battery life murdering.

This is a freaking phone, and not a computer. Might as well add a shaver somewhere to the phone. How bout a ear pick? How bout a projector to it? How bout give it mouse pointing features. Make it a scanner too. adding a bunch of really nonsense features to a phone. I'm glad Nokia and apple is not focusing on these useless features, that rather affects phone performance, sucks out processing power and destroying battery life. Average phone user is doing 1 thing on their phone anyways, its not a freaking computer. In the end it's a phone. Very soon, samsung is probalby going to add satellite functions on their phone. As long as it's competing against apple, it seems like Whatever Samsung does is justified. People don't look at the big picture. This is why the iphone5 is the best overall smart phone on the planet along with the lumia 920.

Proud to be an owner for this great device SIII I'm looking forward for Quad A15 Exynos, A9 Exynos already beat A15 Krait.
