If you think sensibly there is no need of home screen and battery eating widgets
Many people are wondering that why apple is not opting for quad core but let me tell you we don't need it IOS works efficiently on dual cores ...
Jelly bean is so heavy that it will crash a dual core phones that is the reason previous phones are not getting its update

Too bad we don't have a cross-platform benchmark for hardware. The Galaxy S2, S3 and S4 would wipe the floor with any iPhone.

I switched to Lumia 920 after iP4, Nokia beats the iphone in terms of camera and design, iPhone5 is nice but it's becoming boring with the same UI.

The major difference between an Iphone and ny other phone is the performance.. Iphone works smothly even if it's storage if 'full' and try it on any other phone they hang. Just try it u wil know.. Comparing Iphone to any other phone is bullshit!!

Apple iPhone 5 - Fastest speed, Best camera, Best hardware, Best UI, Awesome touch.. I used Sony, Samsung, Nokia and HTC but no one can match the quality of Apple.. Don't worry about how much applications are open.. It will work as fast as it will without any app open. It is truly an amazing experience using my iPhone 5... I am bit upset with the sound quality of headphones.

I suggest everyone not to go by numbers (specifications) when to plan to buy a phone.. My iPhone’s 8 MP camera is far better than Sony’s 12 or 13 MP camera phones.

I am an audiophile...n for me, the fact that iphone 5 has taken a step back in the music department is enough for me to consider the iphone 4s

"What prevents us from giving full points to the iPhone 5 is the amount of unused space at the front. It's the use of space that sets high-end products apart from the rest, but the iPhone 5 has acres of unused glass at the top and bottom. Need proof that a better job could be done? The Motorola Razr M has virtually identical surface to the iPhone 5 and yet fits a 4.3" screen of the same aspect ratio."
Its iPhone 5, not Motorola bro. Its the iconic design of the phone and i wana keep it this way i love it this way and i wud never want to get it shedded away.
