That too with such flawless browsing experience. Can any android do that ??? I don't think so. Even Note 2 and Droid Maxx cannot get those figure with 3100 mAh and 3300 mAh batteries. What a waste of resources !!

The cars in which you'll be racing in Real Racing 3 are made up of 30,000 polygons, Oebrin said, which is roughly six times the amount that was found in Real Racing 2, and the same polygon count found in games on current-generation consoles. This attention to detail is prominently shown when in-game and panning around the cars off the track, as everything from the treads on the tires to the in-vehicle cockpit view are extremely detailed. It's astounding to know that Real Racing 3 runs on mobile hardware."

No wonder why ps vita is discounted over 30% and also console sells are strugling when you can play games like that with your mobile device, i mean think about it, look mobile games about two years ago and look them now.

Apple is the boss. Apple decides how consumers suppose to use the smartphone.

Apple has a lot of die-hard fans who're willing to pay premium for the out dated hardware because Apple always brain washed the consumers the optimization of iOS is enough to make the iPhone "fly"...

What kind of nonsense is this!!!!!!!!!!!!

GS3 dual core owns iphone 5 no matter how much optimized it is.

The whole specs argument is pretty much invalid these days when it comes to iOS and Android.

Android pushed boundries thanks to manufacturers always trying to make their devices future proof. It has recently started to work as well.

iOS doesn't need as much processing power for it's simple intuitive OS which leaves more power for Apps. Hence the slower CPUs

Optimisation is the key here, and is why some prefer one to the other.

let me guess,a quad core 800mhz cpu still 1gb of ram with the same design as the iphone 5, exactly what they did with the iphone 4s! from this we can guess what the iphone 6 will be like! a quad core 1066mhz cpu with 2gb ram and a slightly different design,probably a slightly larger display!!
