[deleted post]I have the Samsung Note and the iPhone 4. Frankly the operating system of the iPhone is better than the Note but Apple does not cover the market spectrum as does Android and most Android users have never experienced an Apple iPhone as they are too expensive for them. In this regard Android covers the bases, which Apple could have done if they were not so bloody fixated on margin. So Apple made the running but shot themselves in the foot in doing so. Where are their new products?
Ok, Samsung announced there is no upgrade for Galaxy s and note, Which means you can't put ICS on to your cell phone.
how long ago samsung announced Galaxy s and tab?
I think it's little bit more than 1 year.
after support 1 year. then what?
This is the biggest android phone's problem.
just simply think about this. does iPhone 3gs have any issue with upgrade o/s? It's over 2years old. but still you can take support from apple!!!! which is amazing!! once you get android phone it might satisfy you once, then few months later? No more supporting. look at the andorid market all the crap shits. Can they supply high quality applications?
Do you still think android phones are better?
Then go for it!!!! and Do not regret it!!

Keep your obsolete Flash on Android, it will stop working soon since Adobe quit supporting the mobile version.
Need more ?
Lets be fair here.
both Android phone and Iphone has their pro and cons.
Iphone does have a very atractive and solid physical build. I see some of my friend still using the 1st generation of Iphone until today...look at the solid built of any Iphone, I think it can last for at least 5 years for most of them if you dont drop it. very well built indeed but it is not unbreakable. besides, it is very simple and straight forward, you get what you think..they also call it idiot proof. Apple is very too smart to make it simple. not much of thing can be added to it and which make them continue to run smooth...it is good for simple user.
Of course, most android phones are less solid built (from the handling or the look of it) but android do give the users a lot of freedom which we all needed. a lot of free softwares availabe and make it very versatile. It is good for those who want to squeeze out more functions. it is good for sophisticated user. Android phone maker such as samsung is also very smart to take advantage of the trend. people like android always look for more.. any android phone will not last a person for more than 2 years. people likes android always look for improved model because they never get enough...
As end user, I wish to have the goodness of both. there is no need to argue which one is better. it makes more sense for us to post our view on technical issues so that each comment on gsmarena can benefit everyone and the manufacturer to improve their service.
I think we all are winners in this sense. A million thanks to gsmarena for such a wonderful site where we can get our problem solved.

MicroSIM card support only, No Flash support in the web browser, No true multitasking for all applications, FaceTime video calls work only over Wi-Fi, No file transfer over Bluetooth or USB Mass Storage mode, No FM radio, No stereo speakers, No microSD card slot, Non-user-replaceable battery, No high speed 4G or LTE connectivity, No gorilla glass display, Very small screen at only 3.5 inches.
The reasons yo buy this phone: you can find unlimited number of apps that is used. not all apps can be found with nokia samsung etc. the touch screen is the best you can imagine, better than any other in the market. Also you will appreciate how fast iphone 4s is, comparing to any other iphone. There is a lag time between the moment you press the button and the program actually opens up. with 4s this is minimal. it is almost like similtaneously

"Smart phone"- without knowing how to edit or even save a document.
Boy, with a SAR level of 1.18, that's pretty high. Oh, but i'm going to buy it anyway because it's an Apple.
I just have a logical question!
why should I buy this phone? compare to what are in current market?
please give me good reasons that I should not buy this? or if I do why?
thanks very much
Anonymous, 18 Dec 2011I disagree. Interest in Nokia phones went down because of its stubborn insistence with the use... morei totally agree... with your comment on Nokia's false pride about non acceptance for android... there on the verge of extinction coz of that,
