sunny, 27 Oct 2011you right android market really sucks + android phones too I just don't understand wats the us... moreyou should note that Android runs on Java base, and Java runs on a virtual machine, wich means the real system on your phone has to create a full sub-system so the OS works with it.. that sucks most of the phone's resources
on the other hand, the iphone runs on objective-C which is basically C++ so to speech and that runs directly on the hardware it has, no sub-system required
I have both an android phone and an iphone (a 3GS) and that iphone is way faster than the android, although it's maybe 2 years older on the market
AnonD-21350, 28 Oct 2011Also, I forgot to mention, the Voting Results for Design, Features and Performance are less th... moreDown voting can bring down the average no matter what. People however are not fooled by such tactics no matter how much Samsung pays the trolls.
People read reviews, and so far reviews have been overwhelmingly positive including here on GSMArena. 4 million sold on first weekend, and 22 countries launched today, be prepared for even more records breaking soon.
WP7 also coming up, and interesting that after given the chance to study both Android and iOS, they chose the more integrated and 'closed' approach like iOS. User experience FTW, and Apple knew this from long ago.
Also, I forgot to mention, the Voting Results for Design, Features and Performance are less than unacceptable for the best phone in the world! LOL :)
iPhone is really touch phone, android base all phones are press phone.
bob, 27 Oct 2011apple put a picture of this out ages ago but no-one noticed bcs it looks so much like and iphone 4it cool but u aint put its real pics
I am torn in 2 minds whether to get the 4S or just get new bb bold and wait for the Iphone 5....
1. Could get 4S on 18 month contract and upgrade after 15 to 5
2. Could get BB and go for 12 month contract and upgrade to 5 when it is out.
I have never owned Iphone so anyone with some valid opinions would be much appreciated to help me make my decision.
P.S Iphone is currently out of stock and i can get BB now if i wanted
Anonymous, 28 Oct 2011Apple Asia Pacific sales up by 174%: http://mashable.com/2011/10/28/apple-net-sales-asia-pa... moreapple sales from 74% decrease to 34% thats the fact android kills ios5 android is android ios5 boring.
However, things are much rosier if you focus on the Mobile phone division only. Samsung mobile phones sales rose "low 20%" on QoQ and "high 20%" YoY. The company become the world's leading smartphone manufacturer selling 27.8 million in the past three months, overtaking Apple, which only managed 17.1 million.
I have a iPhone 3GS near 2 year an it did not slow down if have not thing to do not talk about iPhone or not write any thing I use it all Nokia.samsung .lg,se an ect all Is pack of crap iPhone is the best phone in the world an the iPhone 4s is the boss of the world an u no it
[deleted post]Nothing in this world is guaranteed my friend. The iPhone is certainly not perfect. Neither is any phone. The best phone is the one that serves you best.
The blind or disabled would probably find Siri to make the iPhone best for them, apart from iPhone's other great accessibility integration. Those who prefer more freedom to tweak and install stuff, would prefer Android over iOS. Those who simply are brand loyal, may choose to stick to Nokia, or Sony Ericsson, due to nostalgia. Some are even nationalistic, and may buy Samsung or LG out of national pride.
One thing is for sure tho, spending time online, on a phone page you don't like, listing out weaknesses, is lame. How difficult do you think it would be for me to list out weaknesses for SGS2 for example (fragmentation, too big etc etc), and then keep repeating them? Not difficult at all, but I would rather focus on the positive.
Why Google and Microsoft need to fear Siri (and Android fanboys):

[deleted post]I certainly am waiting for the iPhone 5, just that in the meantime, I am using the iPhone 4S, one of the fastest smartphones in the world, smoking even the SGS2.
[deleted post]Android is already being killed from another side, WP7. Mango has been released and available for 100% of eligible WP7 phones, following the iOS model.
Microsoft had time to study both models, iOS and Android, and despite all the trolling, has followed a lot of Apple's philosophy in the OS game, with a more integrated approach, better OS updates, and certainly avoidance of fragmentation.
The open OS approach is wonderful on paper, but brings with it a host of problems, which Microsoft has seen being suffered by the Android manufacturers.
In the end, a product should be reliable, secure, and just work.
