iPhone quality started to go downhill after the 4S. iPhone 5 has the most quality issues of current smartphones.

"iPhone has 4 major unbeatable strength.

1. Form factor.
iPhone is designed to be held in one hand, its width measurement is 1/3 of a avg human hand, so 1/3 for resting the hand .."

So you're saying that nobody else has produced a phone with the same specifications. So you're saying that nobody wants a phone that does not match the Apple form factor.

So that is not just a unbeatable strength, it's a "major unbeatable strength"

Sorry, I won't waste my time reading the remainder of your comment when your first point is so very wrong.

iPhone has 4 major unbeatable strength.

1. Form factor.
iPhone is designed to be held in one hand, its width measurement is 1/3 of a avg human hand, so 1/3 for resting the hand .. 2/3 for griping the phone and lastly good coverage by the thumb. It leads to the "remote control" comment by haters.. but it increases the screen size without compromising usability.

2. Touch response / performance (Lagfree).
Most people who ever tested or use iphone on long term then switch suddenly to an android device will find android having "lag" and bad touch.

When you use iPhone, the UI objects / tableviews "stick" to your hands and fingers, it gives you the illusion that your touching the actual stuff. When you use android, it feels like unreal.. seems like your disconnected with the graphics on the phone. This effect is known as 'lag' of android.

When you first bootup android.. it shows you the launch screen even before everything is loaded.. thus it gives the impression of "lag" as the processers and services are struggling to keep up. Android does not have the "smart" aspect of iOS, as it simply load as fast as it could.. it does not take into account of smooth animation.. and thus results is the sudden jerking motion of the UIs.. horrible gaming performance etc..

3. Battery performance.
You might think "are you crazy?" how can a device with barely 1.5k battery be considered as good battery performance?

But the truth is.. iPhone5 battery is comparable to Note2 when both are fully loaded (16gb w/ sdslot vs 64gb) with social apps, games, videos and pictures.

Battery life of android degrades as more applications are installed, while iphone stay constant. Most android users will "uninstall apps" if it drains battery.. you see that constantly in play store. You NEVER, see battery issues with iPhone apps.. unless its very seriously wrong.

4. App quality.
Applications on android is mostly worse. But this is not because of developers not putting in effort.. but the truth is its "harder" to develop lagfree/ smooth android application compared to iOS. It has nothing to do with supporting multiple screen size that cause this or fragmentation (although it play a part).. but rather the way the sdk is setup, if you guys have time, look at a typical android application source code... your eyes will bleed.

Apple is bad for your brain, kids.

Other then that.. it only hinders mobility.

I am hoping that the new iPhone 5S would be in a bigger screen. Same size is too outdated. Everything goes big now. Come on Apple impressed me please with your new innovation. I'm still an Apple product fanatic.

Buy HTC One, its much closer to the premium feel that the IPhone has.

Oh come on...
S4 I will says that it has good spec or better spec than iPhone
But u should realize iPhone has ios
Which is why iPhone has better performance compared to android
So if on the book, s4 is better, but on hand, iPhone much better where it is smoother
