Like really? Did you wake up high or are you simply trolling?
Ok here is an intelligent response to the rather uninformed points that you raised
8 MP camera?? Don't get me started... Even 5 MP is more than enough
True fan boyism at its best. By the time Apple gets round to releasing a 13mp camera module you would exclaim and say how wonderful Apple's 13mp camera is. But since Apple doesnt currently have a 13mp camera
then it is completely unnecessary(at least until Apple tells you that it is necessary). And no 5mp is definitely not more than enough except you want low resolution pictures that wont scale well to larger screens
Appreciate technological innovation when you see it.
The iPhone is perfect
Please dont make me laugh. The Iphone is a fantastic device but it is by no means perfect. The Galaxy S4 is also a fantastic device but it is definitely not perfect. There is no mobile phone in the market that is
perfect and has everything that everybody wants. By virtue of the variability of human needs there would always be a flaw.
When the first iPhone came out the 3.5 inch was a really big screen that time. And now the 4 inch is perfect for typing
Do you like really get tired of being a fan boy? If Apple didnt release a 4 inch phone you would be saying that 3.5 inch is perfect for typing. Do you know that Steve Jobs said that 3.5 inch not 4 inch is the perfect form
factor? Get your facts right. And as for 4 inch being perfect for typing try typing on a netbook and on a laptop and then tell me which one is perfect for typing. Personally I think the 4' to 5' range is good for typing
and above 4.3' is much better for typing because of the increased real estate.
It has a 5.0 inch screen and an octa core processor (quad core on some versions) yet it sucks battery life like you drink water after a hard time at the gym
Fan boyism at its most unenlightened peak. Are you aware that the Galaxy S4 has far better battery life than your much vaunted iphone 5? Here are the figures below
Endurance 51 hours
3g talk time 8:42 hours
Web Browsing 9:52 hours
Video Playback 10:12 hours
Endurance 69 hours
3g talk time 18:03 hours
Web Browsing 7:24 hours
Video Playback 12:30 hours
Dont take my word for it. You can confirm these figures yourself from GSM Arena.
The moral of the story is simply that you should read up more often, dont make uninformed assumptions and try thinking for yourself every now and then.
This is actually my first contribution to GSM Arena but I have been a fan of this site for years.
The next apple products like iPhone 5c and 5s will include a face recognition for lock screen
All this has become here is a Apple v Samsung slagging contest, such a shame :-(
Sure there has been the odd little quip/joke about such things be it is turning vile.
Everyone talks about how crappy and old 8 MP camera is, how dual core is slow and so "2010", how 4.0 inch screen is small. Well allow me to say something to all the Samsung fanboys. The galaxy S4 has a 13 MP camera yet you don't use more than 5 MP for casual life photos and shots. It has a 5.0 inch screen and an octa core processor (quad core on some versions) yet it sucks battery life like you drink water after a hard time at the gym and you don't even need the octa core processor. The iPhone is perfect. Who needs a big piece of brick in their pockets? When the first iPhone came out the 3.5 inch was a really big screen that time. And now the 4 inch is perfect for typing and using the phone with even one hand. People complain about the dual core processor yet the iPhone is one of the most efficient non-laggy mobile smartphones out there. Dual core is more than enough to run a phone very smooth and remember that dual core doesn't suck battery life. 8 MP camera?? Don't get me started... Even 5 MP is more than enough. What's the use of a 13 MP camera if you don't need more than 5 for a very bright and good picture. Keep in mind the MP doesn't really make a difference, it's the camera quality that does and Apple has the quality not the quantity. And people want the quantity.
Duel, 14 Aug 2013"But its your opinion" Its not my opinion, apple sold 5 million more iPhones than... moreit's the growth rate that's falling, while the growth of android devices is increasing. well, typical apple fanboys will pretend not to understand such a simple context.

Its not my opinion, apple sold 5 million more iPhones than year ago sametime, they sold lot more iPhones than any analysist expected. So how selling more iPhones is falling? You android guys clearly have weird way to think :D
"People are already tired of the same boring design with no major improvements"
And yet more people bought iPhones :D dont be such a FANBOY and accept the facts that apple going to sell tens of millions iPhones and you cant do anything about that but crying how people are bored with iPhones :D
J2ME User, 14 Aug 2013Wrong!
You reads statistics, as the devil reads the bible.
Apple lost 3% of the market.
... moreIt doesnt matter whqt android sells, android isnt one company.
Appple sold 26 million year ago and noq they sold 31 million, so it doesnt matter if they lost marketshare because they still sold more iPhones.
Duel, 13 Aug 2013"Samsung sold 20 million Galaxy S4 devices in just two months" This news came alm... moreThat is dumb because new i5 is not out and will still be old boring design and already new LG and Sony better that comes next month with better look and performance and not freeze on Facebook like iOS.
The i5 that I owned was garbage and couldn't wait to get rid of it for HTC 1 and now happy because no problems with apps like Facebook freezing i5. Apple is old and tired and nothing new so good luck sticking plastic cover and features other phones have for years already. Only people who caring about brand name will buy because Apple no longer quality or best tech.

All of them are made in CHINA. Get over it.

But its your opinion.. and i can't wait to prove you wrong.
Calibrated things with highly precision make you do anything in your real life... and thats what iphone has. whether its IP3GS or IP5. your choice shows your level of thoughts not just buying the samsung's increased spec. devices with cheaper built quality (Always vomit the color painted on it)Unnecessarily which gets many issues after a months due to also its cheap hardware quality and the bull shit services.
Although Apple is Apple and it is on its top position for delivering world class quality deisgn products always no matter what the share statistics is. Apple does'nt launch its products for a competition with others, Apples agenda is to show world how a technologically invention (Not an innovations) can be so powerful and so precise people can feel. E.g Rolls Royce (Apple) & Honda (Others)
If you like a bigger screen, I recommend you to buy samsung galaxy S4 or note 3
If you want a small screen, i recommend you to buy iphone 5 or iphone 5s
If you want a play game smoothly, i recommend you to buy iphone5 or iphone 5S
For me, i prefer iphone coz i like games 😆
The commercial tells all...

You reads statistics, as the devil reads the bible.
Apple lost 3% of the market.
Even if there are unsold IP4 and IP4S (and soon IP5 too) at bargain prices besides an average price cut, Apple lost market shares.
Yes, the smartphone boom is still rolling on, and Apple could gain production growth.
If a production growth of 5 million iphones resulted in a lost of 3% market share.
Then how many million sold Android phones does a 10% market share growth come down to? You do the math...

It's ironic because the real techies and latest tech projects tend to use iPhones as their base in industry.

We might have hard to understand that, we judge these devices in big way and complaining about things which most buyers doesnt even know or care.
We see these devices so different way than normal consumer.
