IPhone 5 vs htc one web browsing speed. Again good example how well and fast apple devices works in real life even they have smaller specs on paper. IPhone won that test hands down opening every pages faster than htc one.

It does you no good, when you hide in your shell and stay denial to everything.. and soon your comments will sound more trollish then facts.

What i stated is the hard truth.

Different look, same conpany (yea i ment to spell it like that)
Same phone, different name.

How many things has Apple pinched off android now? Or other phones for that matter, intuitive through other peoples ideas? The iphone died with Jobs.

HTC One next to any of the iphones, just makes them all look a bit silly really.

And to the user talking about lag in android, your obviously doing something wrong because my phone is way faster than any iphone and easily smoother, not to mention that iphones can have their bad days too.

Can't wait for this to launch, funny watching the cranks rushing out to buy it.

Will be buying one and a Nexus 5 if it's the same price as the Nexus 4. Stick to Apple for my main phone, can always rely on it, no hiccups.

So when you want to change the phone for newer you dont have to pay much.

Many many iPhone users does this with every model, they get new model with very small amount of money every year, because there's always people who want your old model and pay very good price for that.

It's okay you always have the option to upgrade to IO7 and make your phone look like Android

I used Android phones for last 4 years(xperia x10i, galaxy S2, galaxy Note etc) then moved to iPhone 5. I am not apple fan but I love the way they design the phone(look) and the smoothness of iOS.

I had played with Galaxy S4(friend's).. initially I liked it because it has got too many features but somehow found most of them are useless. Like why should I make gesture/ air control in my phone? Only few mad people will do so when your phone held by your one hand .. its nice in TV only(but not that perfect I have samsung TV). So seems to ME it's just a useless feature just show how innovative is S4. I had worse experience with S2 and Note ... the famous emmc - brick bug.

Although I like android since I could use TSF, next etc launcher or cool widgets like HD, missedIT etc but just adding more cores, wired looking in-built launcher(TW nature UX- senseless naming) , unnecessary features seemed to me useless.

It's funny that when I was using Android most users tried to imitate the iPhone icon, looks etc. When I was on Xperia people made ROM looks like Samsung and when I was with samsung ppl do the reverse.

I still like Android (not Samsung ..they just add more and more phones everyday just to confuse people) because I can develop apps with minimum cost and I dont have mac. But my primary phone is iPhone 5. I think samsung should make a deep copy of iPhone so that they can produce good phone with useful features....the funny thing is they cheaply copied first iPhone to make Galaxy S (with some wired looking icons) and continues hard to improve that thing with adding useless features and COREs.

I had really bad experience with 3 top Samsung phone. Now I am happy with iPhone 5 and again xperia ZL(for development only)
