Fair point. BUT, Apple has key elements that are consistent in every iPhone, and have not changed.

The home button has never changed in size, design or shape. Volume, power and mute buttons are consistently used. Looking at iPhone from the front only, at a first glance you'd have a hard time telling the generations apart.

That's what makes a high-end brand what it is. You'll always recognise a BMW, no matter what generation, same for iPhone.

HTC, Samsung and LG - if it wasn't for the fact that it's written on the phone - a lot harder to differentiate

Iphone is much better in term of functionality, simplicity, OS reliability, and design stylish. Where is the practicability if you need to operate the phone with your two hands. If u need bigger screen go with tablet. You're not buying a toy thta has gimmicks like smart stay etc which in the end you'll never use it. A handphone will be with you all the time but wiill u carry a cheap plastic toy?

And in stand by it will switch over to 1.2ghz. So you will essentially gain minor battery gains. I'd still prefer the LTE using 1.9ghz quad core all the time. For better performance. Rather than battery life... Snapdragon make some good stuff. I'm uncertain about the support the rom community will give the Exynos.

> In reply to ruIin @ 2013-03-26 02:59 from rJXK - click to readAre you sure?? I'm looking at the mobile review site. Look @ the starhucks sign of S4 comparing to iPhone 5. The logo showing for iPhone 5 is so washed out with the green color! Words are also not sharp for the iPhone 5 photos. Even S3 has a better green than the poor iPhone 5.

Then look at the coins photos. iPhone 5 ones are too over exposed. And look at the man face for iPhone 5. So orange in color??!

S4 is much better in almost every photos imo.

IPhone is still the best from the functionality, reliability, and simplicity. You don't need gimmicks such as smart stay etc as you're not buying a toy. Need larger screen, go with tablet. You need to be able to use single hand because this is the concept of a handphone. IPhone is proud and confidence to produce only one high quality product. You looks inconfidence by producing wide variety products with range of quality. Finally, I won't be part of cheap society by carrying plastic toy in my daily activity....

OMG! An entire 0.7mm slimmer, 0.8mm narrower and a whooping 3 grams (!) lighter. I mean, MARVELOUS, right?!

Statistically insignificant, I say.

Also, get your facts straight, half the things you're spouting are false.
Have you even checked the benchmarks? Or the fact that the S4 and HTC One has the same CPU for many countries, but S4 at a higher clock speed?

I am disappointed that the Samsung Galaxy S 4 does not have a radio unlike its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy S 3. What a let down!

Especilially a speed test between the two different chip sets.

Right now the biggest dealbreaker here (for me) is the non-LTE variant which has the better chip. I just thought that if I would ever buy another phone, I would use it for about 2-3 years minimum. So I should get the most out of my money. Will probably wait for the review here and personal hands-on for HTC One and S4.

And guys, chill. It's just a phone. You really don't need to bash other people's opinions. After all, it all boils down with our preferences. Go try it yourself if you're confused which to choose.
