iPhone 5s and 5c reservations in China to start from Sep 17 - read the full textApple's latest smartphones - the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c will hitting China since day one for the very first time. The Cupertino company has announced that the consumers in the world's largest smartphone market will be able to reserve their iPhones, starting from September 17. All the consumers...


Sort by:

The I see it (not that it matters), it's all about personal choices.

Now, don't tell me iPhone 5 is better than SGS4, it's not, and specially, it's not worth the money... Here, SGS4 costs 650 and iPhone 5 690 (pratically the same as its launch price)... I'm not saying it's a bad phone, I'm just saying it's not worth the price and it's not as good as SGS4 (anyone who really tried them, not just held them for a while, can atest to this)...

Now, stop saying iPhone 5S or even 5C is better or worst than SGS4... They're not out yet, so, it's impossible to really compare them just based on specs and whatnot...

Either way, like I said, it's a personal choice, I'm not a Samsung lover, even less of an iPhone lover, but at the moment SGS4 is one of the best... Let's wait 'til iPhone 5S is out and maybe some people will shut up (be them Samsung or iPhone fanboys)...

And please, PLEASE, stop comparing iOS and Android. Each of them has its pros and cons, and it's an argument that's getting really old, really fast... And people, you don't really go anywhere here...

Not because it is sold out. Sometimes I really wonder can they even comprehend some common sense LOL!
Stop lying...dude

Im sick of you kids arguing for iPhone and Samsung. Im going somewhere else. iOS vs Android. I dont care what brand but Android sucks. Thats it. Even on power save YOU SG4 keeps occupied 1.5gb RAM thats why SOON to reach the speeds of a future iOS phone, android will need to be run on a supercomputer which is impossible to be mobile not for size reasons but for battery reasons. Your Android with a 4" screen and the same hardware would drain the battery within few hours. Thats why pray every year to get 1 inch bigger screen so you can have bigger battery too. iOS has its own drawbacks as well. Some very annoying. Everyone can choose what they like. Quit the argument

My SG4 never lagged.
Iphone equals to pay more for less. Why do you need smart stay, smart scroll etc. when you can pay more (SG4 is cheaper) for less.
Optimized apps ? Is that all you can tell. Funny story.
Does your iphone knows it is in your pocket. Like SG4. Does it have adapt sound ?
Some prefer smaller screens ? Try using 5S as navigation. Then try navigation on SG4 with the awesome 1080p 5" same sized and weighted as SG3.
Try some game like Asphalt 8 on SG4 then on 5S.
Hundreds of facts.. Rofl the new'ish 5S

Moreover,you have no idea of optimization for quad core and full HD,am I right? because you have never used quad core phone LOL. try to use or test some android phones with real power before you do idiotic complaints,for example,Gameloft has optimized all of their games for full HD and quadcore LOL,wanna know one of the game name? it is amazing spiderman. Try and do research before you make funny comments. can make really funny stories by changing name and changing stories? Is that what iphone losers doing now to protect their already losing phones? FYI,ip5 and 5S still can't beat the SGS3 LOL! ok?

comparing a 2010 phone with a 2013 phone but still winning in some aspects? if you compare a 2010, or even 2011 or 2012 droid in that matter, iPhones (even 3gs without the screen performs better (hope you understand PERFORMANCE, not just in benchmarks, i mean REAL PERFORMANCE in REAL LIFE, but I must say, for the sake of not being bias, that iPhone's battery life sucks)
but bro, looks like you're the hater one with your racist speech.

iPhones and Droids have their own problems. just admit that many apps are optimized for the iphones especially the games, as games nowadays come to the iOS platform first (some might not even reach droid, heck, devs are now thinking twice about creating a game for droid platform cause of PIRACY,). that's it. iPhones have a crappy memory - non expandable and non removable battery with a small capacity. admit also that not all people want larger screens hence the petition. the camera's as good as it gets (i'm not saying topnotch) in those days. why do droids need to have a proper task killer anyway? because it might lag? not to mention overheating issues in which you can already cook an egg on the back of the phone :)

these are the phones that i tried (the ones that force closes)
- SGS4 (LTE), SGS3 mini, Xperia Neo L 4.0.4 (heck, even on homescreen it still lags), LG L7, and recently, a PH brand, cherry mobile razor (though it is really inferior to the former phones save the neo L, mediatek quad core chip, 1gb ram, 4.2.1 also)

everything have their shortcomings dude. no need to deny facts :)

and for that quite hate text in regards to my incapability to switch to lumia 520, sorry but i'm still a student. if you change phones yearly, then i must say you're pathetic :))

enjoy your octa-fail sht SGS4 or whatever you're handling. gonna enjoy my ip4 and xperia mini pro.
*just to take note, i have not heard an app that is optimized for quad-cores, am i right? correct me if i'm wrong.

I don't agreed with your force closing and laggy droid. It is buttery smooth and the real users know it but not an iphone loser like you of course. Well, people do prefer bigger and better screen for sure,5inch is pretty ok with 1080pHD screen, best for watching movies,youtube,web browsing etc. I know you need to put an extra effort to look small stuffs from small screen LOL.He didn't say features are must have but good to have. How about sensors that phone can help you something more than the other phone? No reason from you? iOS's Optimization is sbetter? Don't you say,iOS doesn't even have exit button in apps and games. Android is still the best in optimization out there with proper task killer and real multi-tasking(hope you understand,real multitasking).I am really curious about your story of android 4.2 LOL. How about camera? no stereo recording and voice quality is very low. I am pretty curious how many reasons do you have to make up to protect your useless,crappy phone? Save your sorry ass before it is too late man. Wait,what? you can't afford to change to lumia 520? which part of the world are you from? You should use lumia 1020 and get it with contract or find a better job rather than doing useless stuff like protecting the already losing company and its product XD.
Good luck.

Is A7 processor so-called 64bit better than SGS4, quad core? no,cos no proper speed is announced when it come out you will see it is still way slower than quad core.Why? it has no widegets to do so no strong CPU is needed for ip5s."

- Is the quad-cored CPU of droids make iPhones run buttery smooth compared to the laggy and force closing droids?

"again M7? is it really better than Adreno 320 or 330 GPU? nope,sad for you."

- Who cared 'bout that? We have the so called "optimization" system. No matter how "old" your device is, if an app is optimized for it, it will run very good (a lot of great games are optimized for the "old specced" iPhone. Heck, even Cytus lags on my friends quad core 4.2.1 jellybean phone but runs buttery smooth on my single cored 512 ram iPhone4).

"screen size? still chick size? "

- Not all people prefer bigger screens, heck there was a petition for smaller screens right?

"Smart scroll,Air gestures; barometer, temperature, humidity, gesture"

-Really? How often do you use them? Well, I hope you do REALLY use them.

**Not a fan, just saying.
Actually I wanted to switch to Lumia 520, just can't affort YET :))

Touch ID,good luck for you when their data is stolen even god can't save you. They are having problem in making it work that they can't allow you to buy it yet. How about battery? same,old,weak,irreplaceale battery?
screen size? still chick size? resolution? ouch still can't even hit 720p HD yet and the reason is that sheeps' eyes can't see it,actually you can see it,it is just that they can't make it good enough for you to see it T_T. Android phones are in 1080pHD,everything on its display is crispy,so-detailed, and very sharp.
Features? nope, SGS4 has Smart stay, Smart pause, Smart scroll,Air gestures etc.
Sensors? just some minor sensor but SGS4 flushed out ip5S by having Accelerometer, gyro, proximity, compass, barometer, temperature, humidity, gesture.
NFC? nope,then why are you even saying it is 5+ year ahead,I'd put it rather like 10 years behind Android.Not to mention,old Android-like ios7 and HTC camera has been used. Good luck and try to look something beyond apple pond,cos Android Ocean can offer you so much more and so many things to be discovered inside. Android and Microsoft FTW!

I believe the better translation read: Acquire (your) iPhone from those who really understand (master) the iPhone.
