Epic battle of phone opinion continues. Very entertaining (as a spectator's point of view). Keep it coming guys :)
[deleted post]the issues of the S3.
The Google and Samsung does not support any new updates after 1 year. So pretty much, the S3 becomes obsolete in terms of upgrades when a s4 comes out. Pretty much means, no updates will be available anymore when the s4 comes out. Which means, lower resell value. Apple on the other hand, allows the phones to be updated up to 3 years. So this make its a much better long term investment. So right now, yes, my ip4s is like the ip5, only because apple allowed it to be like that, even though the ip5 has superior performance over the ip4s, features are the same, once again, (because apple allows it).
Feel the ip5, feel the s3, one feels lika toy, one feels like a quality phone.
Breakable screen. Very very fragile screen.
Plastic build doesn't feel good.
Very broken, operating system. That has more to do with android itself, with its glitches. As to date, Android is very fragmented because everyone (HTC SONY, Motortolla) are all using android.
Random dropped calls.
Random phone reboots.
Random phone cycling.
Text messages sometimes not going through.
Extreme Battery Drain / Slow Charging
Bluetooth Is Basically Broken
Lockscreen Widgets / Camera App
Anonymous, 22 Jan 2013Been using this phone for a week now, so far battery drains so fast on average use. Performanc... moreliar! Im a iPhone 4S user and my pal IPhone 5. My iPhone 4S battery sucks compare to my friend IPhone 5. Loading a content and watching my 1080p video via AV player that i installed at the same time, texting, calling and even the notification is on is not bad. Both are good enough. I use my iphone 4s for almost a whole day and iphone 5 till another day (both heavy usage).
Given the negative feedback about the iphone5,and Samsungs market lead, is there anything on the horizon from Apple in the near future,ie iphone6?
Anonymous, 25 Jan 2013What I actually meant was some people come here and say "s3 has 1.5 GHz quadra core hahah... moreyup.
Samsung uses the "our specs are higher and price is lower on our products. buy it now." but the ip5 defeated the s3 in performance tests. This shows specs doesn't matter. by 2020 Samsung is also going to have a million core cpu, and a 30 mega pixel camera. who the hell cares about specs. Oh right, fandroids do.
Anonymous, 25 Jan 2013What I actually meant was some people come here and say "s3 has 1.5 GHz quadra core hahah... morewhat kind of argument was that? have you just said that iphone is better just because it is better? you expect anyone to buy a cellphone based on that, i agree that just higher numbers don't mean a better phone, despite it must be highly considered, but user experience became less reliable since people start to think that Iphone(ios) and galaxy(android) are soccer teams(i'm brasilian), and cheering has no relation with the real performance of the team or the cellphone.
Anonymous, 25 Jan 2013Really? Well I have come to the conclusion that Iphone fans are worse. Of course people are go... moreWhat I actually meant was some people come here and say "s3 has 1.5 GHz quadra core hahaha Iphone only has 1 GHz, s3 beats iphone, why you even buy an iphone, its really expensive and it has only 1 ghz processor etc.". These comments are worthless because when it comes to daily life experience, Iphone offers better speed, better connection, better sound etc. Maybe it has lower specifications on paper, but in real life it offers better specifications. We live in real life, not in numbers' world :D Thus, having a lower Ghz processor doesnt mean this phone is slower, people must understand this firstly. In addition, some guys blame people for buying an expensive phone. These comments are worst comments in the universe, everyone cares for his/her own economy. We shouldn't intervene in other people's money issues. I think my post is clear enough.
Anonymous, 25 Jan 2013Really? Well I have come to the conclusion that Iphone fans are worse. Of course people are go... moreThat's exactly right! Iphone fans always insist specs are not important just to defend their beloved phone that's been outpaced in specs by the Droids. Why then iphone upgraded the screen from 3.5 to 4 inches? The RAM from 512 MB to 1 GB? And add more features like LTE and even copy Android's notification bar?
The specs are not important just in cpu and battery but in camera or resolution or network or any other things specs are so important.
Anonymous, 25 Jan 2013Really? Well I have come to the conclusion that Iphone fans are worse. Of course people are go... moreComparing specs for android vs iphone is meaningless .. its only used for similar OS, or phones with almost same features.
Give you an example:
I have phone A with 3000 mAH .. and i have phone B with 1500 mAH
Phone A audio playback 35 hrs .. Phone B audio playback 40 hrs
Both allow video playback of 10 hrs.
Which news better judge the phones? The specs or the actual playback time or the specs?
Sure specs will give a rough idea on how good the device is.. but the actual performance gauge is still real life reviews.
Ricky Ong, 25 Jan 2013Screen only 4" not impressive. Battery capacity also small.Have you seen the SG3 battery in action? The galaxy battery lasts less than 8 hours with 3g connection. I cant even use whatsapp the whole day, thats a smartphone for you?

"I totally disagree with you. Iphone is not complicated. It's the simplest ever and the most user friendly. In fact even toddlers and elderly can use it with ease. It's especially designed for the not so tech savvy people."
As far as I am aware tech experts are experienced with the more complicated tools.

Of course people are going to look at the specifications. It is called competition. It is in our nature to compete. If comparing specifications were not necessary then we are better off going back to the basic brick phones.
the iphone 5 is now only 25,999 in the nashville tennesse it contains the more volume in our site its very volume and pretty phone in my whole world!!
I read some opinions that they said Android is for experts.Why?Which feature of Android makes it for experts?I saw everywhere that great and apps for expers are for iOS not Android.You can see all of programming languages are available for iOS.
