But actually typical from android fanboy, when they havent anything to say they go low.

No im no American, very far from that, thousands of miles. English is actually my third language, so sorry if my english isnt perfect, i only use english when writing in internet. I dont have situations in real life where i can use english, last time i studied english was ten years ago, but i try to maintain my english "skills" writing these blogs, its good practise and im learning when reading others people comments.

So end of day, you can call me fanboy but i cant call you? Thats interesting... I only called you fanboy because you called me. If you ask me this fanboy thing is so stupid and childish.

I could google a video to prove everything i say too!! But i am not that big of a geek and working in the telecoms industry i kind of see what all phones are like for usability....sorry that means how user friendly a phone is, thought i might dumb it down for you

Apple with prehistoric hardware runs that game smoother than any other phone, also it looks better on iPhone 5. Oh know, how could that happen...

Hear how that guy say game is laggy in every other phone than iPhone ;)

Like i said great value for money, these kind of videos are good way to show how powerful iOS devices really are in real life performance, and end of the day thats only thing which matters, no numbers on paper or cores.

But you are typical fanboy who have no idea what he's talking about, so its ok, i get it.

Apples technology now is prehistoric compared to all other brands such as Sony, Samsung, HTC and Nokia. The designers are incredibly lazy and have no innovation. iOS is an awful operating system and you are incredibly easy to wind up....Oh how i love fanboys!!

Only thing which you see from those numbers is android is more popular than iPhone, but what you said is entirely different story.

"iPhones are bought by brainwashed people who buy them because they are "Apple"

And samsung phones are bought by brainwashed people who buy them because they are "samsung"

Also people who buy samsung televions are brainwashed, because product cant be good right... I could continue this list forever.

By the way that brainwashing thing gets so old, millions of people are buying iPhones and going to buy in future because the device is great value for money, deal with it.

It would be interesting if they made their own components to see how good a company it actually is??? I am also going to take a wild guess that the 5S will run jellybean.....i mean iOS 7 and the 5S will just be a 5 with some 'new features'.

Try this

"According to new data from Retrevo, 81 percent of current iPhone owners will buy another Apple handset when it's time for their next purchase."

"81 percent of current iPhone owners will buy another Apple handset when their contracts are up and they have to purchase another device. Another 14 percent of current iPhone owners identify themselves as "undecided." Just 4 percent say that they plan to switch to Android."


Then android users: "It's a different story on the Android side. Just under two-thirds of current Android owners -- 63 percent -- say that they'd stick with a handset running Google's operating system. Another 12 percent plan to switch to the iPhone, while 23 percent say they're unsure what they'll buy next time around."

12% plan to switch to iPhone

Like i said more android users buying iPhone than iPhone users buying android phone.

why I prefer Android? because I don't need to rely on Itunes all the time. I can use different launchers with different looks and functionality. There is even a windows 8 launcher if you want the look of windows 8. With IOS you can only change the arrangement of you apps and the wall paper.

Granted i will say Apples customer service is brilliant with regard to their products. However iPhones lag just as much as the rest, anyone who thinks otherwise is viewing through tinted glasses. More and more people are moving away from iOS to android and even windows (not sure why as it is the most limited platform) because iPhones just haven't progressed and even their big new launch iOS7 is just going to be Jellybean with odd "Apple Tweak".

> In reply to Pewdiepiebro @ 2013-07-01 06:46 from PU3J - click to readi am completely in accord with u...but let me tell u something: 90% or + of android users dont know what is custome rom,root or other stuff,inside the rest of 10%,5% dont know to flash their here is the thing,neither u buy a high end phone to run it smooth or u gonna meet up some lag,i know people using android,a lot of people and most of them dont have high end ones,i can even say that they use low end samsung(just for the brand and the ads they see in tv)thinking that they will have same experience as S4 or S3 and some others use other brands like huawei...and those people finish to tell u that ur iphone is so cool just because it dont lag,and they will buy iphone if they can afford it,so google should start thinking to low end phones and not only high ends or apple will start eat that segment if they put a low end iphone on the market...
