iPhone 5 is the best... that is just another lame justification by apple users... Hahahaha... Kind of funny... if all the lame excuses by iphone users put together, they might be winning comedy of the year awards.

Ok, ok. I agree that android is a bigger market than iOS and has hundreds of phones, apple launches just 1 in a year. But still, App store is the biggest app store in the world, have most number of apps (over 725,000) and has marked 25 BILLION downloads almost 6 months before google play! Why so?? I mean 1.3 million new activations everyday... Then still why so?? iPhone has 6 models only till now, nearly 108 million users of iPhone worldwide!

also, SG3 in north america is a piece of crap and a joke. secondly, iphone hasn't been in asia too long, where as Samsung is a ruler in that territory. The mere fact that one apple phone can compete so well against the hundreds of androids released a year ALONE shows how well apple is doing.

and when you use both the SG3 and iphone... there is no comparision with how smooth and flawless the iphone is....samsung wouldn't be where they are if apple didn't give them a reason to compete.

What if iOS became able to be installed on other devices? Like on Galaxy series.
I think Apple will win the war.
