IPhone 5 with dual coreprocessor doesn't lag even when you are multitasking between 6-10 apps . I guess what made s3 so successful was just its popularity . People bought that phone due to Samsung's reputation. For me the best phone is iPhone 5 and the second best is HTC ONE X+ .

What da hell Android octa , quad , i donnow what de hell is comming next a CPU with 100 core " hundra core " lol . With no real perfromence thats Suckssss
iPhone 5 battery sucks big time. I am a big apple fan, but now after spending so much on iph5 (950 $). I think I made a big mistake. Should have waited for next one or androids with 1080p with battery like 3100 mah ( may be note 3). Just can't realise that apple being such a big company, can't they just think that with same battery and a bigger screen the phone will run less. Totally disappointed on 5 after using 4,4s.I think I wasted a lot of money on apple. Had thy increased the battery to 2000 mah this would have been a better phone.

I already posted this around a week ago, but I mentioned that I've never a smart phone prior to 3 weeks ago. I used the nokia x302 for the past 2 years. So all this os is new and news to me. During the past 3 months, I have extensively tested out IOS, through iphone 4 4s and 5's. I only have a few friends who own the iphone 5. I have a bunnnnnnnch of friends who own the s3. and a lot of friends who combined owned 4s or 4. To be perfectly honest, nothing impressed me at all abou the s3. Extremey disapointed, and shocked to hear that , the s3 outsold the 4s. Im not sure why. Nothing impressed me about it, from the second I felt that phone. That being said, I can understand why too.
Bell a local carrier for us, is literally giving the s3's away on 3 year contracts. You don't have to pay, but I guess thats the price samsung is paying to compete against the ip5 in our area. Anyways, as you know, I have no biased against any of these, as I said, Ive never used any other os's. I even had the chance to test the windows os, on my sisters phone. Out of all 3 major os's, for me its apple easily. LIke I said, I chose the x302 for simplicity, and I like things simple and easy to use. I had my sight set out for a iphone5 or a 5s, by the time I made my decision, 5s rumors, came out. I got a 4s for christmas, best christmas gift ever!. You guys can tell me, ios havent changed in the past 3 years. Android has probably evolved. That fine. But for me EVERYTHING IS NEW, and I like the quality of apple products and I love their os, because it's simple. I give props to the note 2. Credit given. It is a different and wondful phone. But I don't need such a big phone, as I am a male who traffles light. I have my phones in my jean pocket. the NOte 2 will not fit in my pocket. Sure I guess there are some restrictions, and that's their downside. Can't go wrong with the apple. Thanks for reading. Also why do you android users care so much about apple? you guys keep sayinig apple fan boy. I am confused. Am I a apple fanboy? I even said, all these 3 is new to me. But in the end I chose apple, because of simplicity.

Great phone for what it was, no contest vs iphone. My wife had the iphone 4, and she reckons there isn't much difference, but then it's what you do with the phone that matters. Even if I had a 4s, i would still have taken the 5, purely because my contract allows me to get a new one for "free". I am a speed freak, so having a phone that can keep up with everything you can throw at it, is first prize. The performance is spectacular compared to any android or windows phone out there, except of course the new razr running on intel core.
I have the iphone 5, and I can say that is no upgrade from the 4s, and I had the 4S! I dont see an significant improvement over the 4s, as the 4s was snappier anyway, I dont like the 5, because it puts all my applications in 4's box style, the only thing which works is the video, aesthetically this has very minor improvement over the 4S, and the 4S is 80% of Iphone 5, Games are not optimized for Iphone 5, and you may get the letter box effect, only a handful of games support iphone's 4 inch resolution, 85% doesnt, might as well wait till the next Iphone if you want to upgrade! I am planning to return it back to the store, which i paid $650
Firstly, I always research phones extensively before upgrading. I am not knocking Samsung or HTC or Motorola for their hardware, but Android is crap. I have 4 friends with Galaxy S3's and it doesn't take long for the phone to become slower and less responsive. Scrolling through a picture library feels like something is holding it back.I have the Iphone 5 16GB. No matter how many apps are open in the background, everything simply works instantly. No lagging whatsoever. It just works. No need to reboot every couple of days like Android. Apple is more stable and more efficient than any Android i've seen up to date. Like I said, nothing wrong with the hardware....Android is the problem. Unfortunately the general public seems to like the extra "fancyness" of Android, but the simple, sleek operation, look and feel of IOS is so much more efficient. So much so, that the Iphone 5, with slower CPU seems to outperform the Androids my far. Bigger isn't always better. If you want a big screen, get a tablet. If you want a trouble free smartphone experience, get an Iphone.

apple will release a larger phone. I recently found another link that said they will release a phone with a 4.8 inch screen. This article said, a 4.5 inch screen. We'll see.
[deleted post]Nay. No one .. not even samsung can squeeze tech into 4 inch like that of ip5.. Be happy with your bloated phone.

Watch how Google is secretly a tool by the NSA to monitor all electronic devices. Ultimate lie to its users, who actually they are using the most free product hoh hoh ho:
Android users, beware.

1. Screen increase without losing 1h usability
2. LTE for once...
3. Twice ram then 4s
4. better cpu
Only down side is why release 16gb versions.. not enough.. might wait for 5s to get 128 gb..

That's the irony, the users don't realise that they are actually the Androids lol.
One of the best selling phones in the world is now called a flop, or 'floop' by this intelligent guy hahaha. Amazing job Google, I look forward to buying your book Hypnosis for dummies, or more accurately, Hypnotizing dummies for dummies.

I've never used a smart phone before. I tested .
and the IOS works best for me. It's easy and simple. Sure a bigger screen will be nice. But simplicity is what i am looking for.
Iphone 5 is a floop, same everything, apple shares drop 16%. Why becuz sales not as expected. It has to be an eye opener to all. Everyday is not Sunday! look at Nokia, BB, repenting. Should announce iphone 6. Or slash prices to halves. Guys comments please.
I hope next iOS would support more video formats not just MP4 like now.
I'm using iPhone5 (32GB,white) since a week now, earlier was using iPhone 4s. After reading all reviews, wud say I find battery back-up is same as I use to get from 4s with my 56apps. 1-2 times a day I've to charge this device.
About scratches, yes iPhone 5 seems to be prone to scratches if not handled properly, just like 4s' glass front & rear panels can get cracked if not handled with care.
So I dont find any more risk in using iPhone5 if compared to its earlier versions. Still ip5 gives u very nice feeling than 4s, as it is very lite, sleek & fast. Its best smartfone in market as of now.
iPhone always needs care, infact all smartfones needs care & brain to run it hassle free with better battery back-up. Thanx for reading.
