And you might call that overkill but a lot of people will use 4K and it's always better to have too much than always have not enough and be forced to compromise like you have to do with many iPhone features.
antonio escuadro, 07 Sep 2013Apple is total crap. Even chinese xiaomi has a full hd phone or 1080pixels but iphone5 is only... moreYes i agree edgardo that the iphone5 is an absolutely shit. Yes u are correct the apple A5 and A6 chips are actually based on the cortex A5 chips of circa forgotten era. Even Anandtech recognizes it. Anand thought first that upcoming apple A7 would be somehow more modern, but it is still based on the cortex A5 A9 variant. Apple is known as crapple since everything is fake and obsolete technology. In asia, u wil fimd iphones every corner of the side street being sold as if candy bar, but no takers since smartphones from india and thailand are far superior at only a frqction of its price. Samsung, a mid level brand is popular since it offers the best bang for the buck. Sony is the most sought brand and the brand of the rich when it comes to android, aside from their blackberry. Apple is the common cellphone of the poor since as i said, its sold everywhere at dirt cheap prices, hence apple store are closing.

Then use a smaller screen, HD screen is already enough, that's the part which is the most power hungry. It just doesn't make sense at all. Plus what's the use of playing a 4K video on a full HD screen and it takes up so much space. I'm not saying Samsung is bad, note 3 really impressed me, and I like the fact that Samsung always being so creative, I just think that Samsung is going way too far, anyway I'm a Samsung user, I just hope to see Samsung has something more practical in the future like multi window, not just blindly focus on improving the specs. =)

Whether its 3gb or 4 gb ram, the fact is that samsung phones are not optimised with the android software...the hardware does not compliment with the software ... Dont tell me dat u need a quad core device wid processors clocked at 2,2 ghz (snapdragon 800) to make a phone run smoothly...iphone doesnt need a quad core chipset...!!! Please give your useful suggestions on pages for your favourite and cool android devices

And you obviously have no idea how ram works if you think 3gb is too much because it means the Note 3 can handle things like 4K videos, do more things at once and the phone doesn't have to keep closing tasks so everything opens quicker.
no more Samsung for me! i don't like the cheap build quality and i think Samsung is focusing on something that is completely not practical, eg. octa core, 3GB RAM. you're not really gonna tell the difference between quad core and octa core, and most of the features on Samsung are impressive but not usable in daily life. one year later is Samsung going to release a 12-core phone with 4GB RAM? hey guys this is a phone, and it's all about the usability and durability, it's not about how extravaganza the phone is in terms of features and how great is the processor. and a 13mp camera is totally insane, no matter how good the camera is, its standard will always way below a proper camera or DSLR, a simple and basic camera will do a pretty good job on a mobile phone
Yingyang, 07 Sep 2013Intact they already released it. The 3 and the 3GS. But they don't look cheap. And they are mo... moreNo matter what materials you use big phones are always easier to break than things like the little tiny iPhone, Because even phones a quarter of the price of iPhone with the same little 3.5"-4" screens are almost as strong and reliable, So all Apple does is give expensive materials because it makes people who don't know any better think that it makes a better phone when it's actually just for show to give people something to brag about.
س , 07 Sep 2013I see Android phones at 1/3 of the price with the same specs here in UAE. What is so special? Apple devices are only actually worth a fraction of what they charge, But just like designer clothes are often made in the same factory by the same people with the same materials you really just paying for the brand name, And with Apple they target those customers who have money to burn and want a device that's easy to use, But people are getting better at understanding smartphones so more and more of those people are going for Android and Windows Phone because the phones are a LOT better and do a LOT more and they willing to use them because the average person knows how to use them now.

It's just the brand name that has given the luxury to offer at a premium price. Nothing more than that.

Umi, 07 Sep 2013Iphone 4s gets 6.7 ; 6.8 ratings and iphone 5 gets 5.6 what is this?? Is iPhone4s better t... moreIt's not better but there was an expectation. This means, that people thought they wuold get better o/s, redesidned look and feel to the phone. There was nothing really new introduced to the phone which is why the market does not think it's better, and that is why you see the lower rating. Personally I use iphone and galaxy phones but on my personal phone I switched to galaxy when the s2 came out. There was no comparing, iphone is miles behind.
Really curious to see what old technology and features are going to be repackaged and sold as "cool and exciting NEW" features that the iphone brings. Let's face it, the Iphone was great and has built up a lot of momentum, momentum that has been carrying it for the past 2 years. I really hope Apple will come up with something brillian, otherwise there is no incentive to move from android.

But you should turn it off also because your phone wouldn't last a day if its on. Hahaha. And anyway. Your samsung would not last a year.

Iphone 4s gets 6.7 ; 6.8 ratings
and iphone 5 gets 5.6
what is this?? Is iPhone4s better than iphone5?????
iphone has less features than android but enough. but some features of todays phones are required.it run better and faster than android in less ram and smaller processor. the problem is stupid restrictions like that prison itunes. irritates too much. and that theme
on ios 7 is very ugly. i think 5s wont be good and not much new but make 6 innovative and give freedom. please dont follow "make everything large" like sheep. not large than 4.3". make iphablets for those who are asking for large screen
