jellyman_7100, 20 Dec 2012Overpriced, low on specs but premium and a clear style statement.Overpriced? Not in my country. Same as GS3. Low in specs? Not a chance. All the specs the GS3 got are available....just easier. Only thing GS3 got extra is that it looks very important flipping through all the windows/pages....a few things...
1. icon for diary on iphone is exact day and date...GS3 just an icon....
2. Deleting things..swipe on entry from the right and delete....
3.Bookmarks a lot easier than GS3
4.Settings on clock for example.."wheel" that can be turned for date/time/year....
5.Pages on net...fit in screen..no need to swipe up and down
6.If you leave app at a certain stage..when returning to that app it is still where you left it
and there are a lot of these easy things. All of these are maybe on GS3, but it's easier on iphone. It's personal!!! And after all, it's someone else who earns the credit/critisism for the phone...not you and me...
Don't let some fools distract u , use it and decide what's good for u
My experience using iPhone 5 , out of this world , very satisfied for over a week now
[deleted post]Google maps are out thr now so wake up ,this is what happens when U don't own iPhone 5
if you are in the philippines if you have an iphone people say WOW you're a rich and attrach many people, even you are not in the middle class it makes you rich. but if you use samsung phone ahh ok she/he have a samsung phone..i go for iphone ^_^
[deleted post]Scratch and maps.....lol. What else are you people gonna get to degrade the iphone? Google maps is back, and what should be the reason that Google offer it for free as an iphone app? Cause they know where the volumes are. It's an old story, the maps and scratches. To find the map app on android is a bigger job than to download google maps on iphone....And the scratches...are you using your phone as a paint stripper tool? If these are the only flaws you can come up with, I still go for the 99,99% other features.....By the way, Nokia Maps are a lot better than google...turn by turn voice navigation....so..in the end it's a personal thing.
Overpriced, low on specs but premium and a clear style statement.

If you want a phone as well, it will be different story. My granddaughter's friend uses a galaxy note....but they are on the net all the time and playing games. If you need a phone to work with it is just too big. And to surf the net it is just not big enough (the 4,8 screens). Rather get your son a mini tablet or a tablet. All they do is playing games and surfing. It will be better for his eyes as well.
The funny thing is that only Android fans are always trying to convience Apple users how good SG3 is... It's never the other way around..
I've never seen anybody that carry IPhone trying to prove how good iPhone is..WHY?... Cuz is obvious....l
Android fans are like Mercedes owners that are trying to sell Benz to a Bugatti owner...lol
chrishd32, 18 Dec 2012As much as I wanted to stay away from Apple I must say they have won me over with the iPhone 5... moreWhat really matters is the size or the features? my 8 yrs old son uses gs2 of 4.3inch and he didn't complain about the size he wanted to up grade to gs3.
jralph23, 20 Dec 2012That's being a little closed minded, don't ya think? There is no way that anyone could say th... moreYour own comment gives the answer. Iphone is easier, but is still doing the job. 99% of smartphone users are not as technology literate like you or me. Therefore iphone would be best for them. One thing you dont mention is that, although iphone is easier and less complicated, its doing same job as GS3. Lot of people talk about "pressing a button and its done". But the problem is to set up the phone for that. While you like playing with your phone and customizing things, my wife just want to call, sms, mail, facebook and take pics and videos and share. I like more and use more. But everything that should be done is there. Just easier on iphone. No problem with GS3, but iphone works for me. And when i need size, i use my ipad. The size on both phones are just too small to play in the net. I think the whole size thing is boggling with people's minds.

Apple is by far the best device out thr , forget cores , ghz, still androids lags and hangs , so my opinion iPhone 5 anytime
This software update works for me , battery life is better now and wifi issues solved ,wow
iPhone5equalsme, 19 Dec 2012iPhone 5 is the best phone there is. Period.That's being a little closed minded, don't ya think?
There is no way that anyone could say the the iPhone 5 is clearly the outright best phone of them all. The specs alone have been surpassed by the likes of HTC, ASUS, Samsung and even the Chinese company Oppo, just to name a few.
To say that the iPhone 5 is the best phone is just another Apple fanboy who has no interest in what else is out there and is just following the herd.
I agree that the iPhone 5 is a great piece of hardware, but it is by far not the best phone.
But then this depends on how people define the word 'best' in this context.
I am an Android fanboy, I'll admit, but there was a time I considered buying an iPhone, and I did, a 4S. So you cannot say "Oh, you only don't like iPhone cause you've never used one."
I used it for a week and just couldn't get used to the brain-dead simplicity of iOS. The next day, it was on eBay.
Now my dear old father is looking into buying a smartphone, and keeps asking which to get. Either the Samsung GS3, or iPhone. I keep saying that he should get an iPhone because of how simple it is to use. This allows me to get away with not having to sit next to him for hours on end teaching how to use Android. In this case, the 'best' phone for my dad would be the iPhone as he is not exactly 'up with the tech of today' if you know what I mean.
So you see, while I'm an Android fanboy, I still have an open mind.
In my opinion, Apple just isn't quite there yet.
Tkz, 19 Dec 2012I like your articlelol. Pretty much every trolling comment into one giant comment from you. LOL. It's been beaten over and over again. Know the pro's and cons. I can pretty much write a similar article on the s3. What's your point.
[deleted post]What features and pros blow the iphone clearly out of the water? Both phones are great. Its a personal choice!
anup90210, 19 Dec 2012I got a software update for my new iPhone5 with ver 6.0.2. Should I update my software?Yes. It will normally be for the better to stay updated.
[deleted post]I use both...price same on contract...and choose what I personally feel is ok for me...I dont care if its apple or samsung...I am not the inventor, manufacturer or whatever is to do with the phone. It is someone other's brainchild. All companies are making money with their products. Therefore it doesnt matter what my choice is. They are making money. It should remain personal for what suits my needs. Calling people sheep cause they do have a feeling for a specific product, is not the name of the game. Everyone is free to make a choice. I use iphone and GS3...what do you call someone like me? Cause I love my iphone I am a sheep....what if i like the GS3 more? Not a sheep anymore? Technology let us decide what we like. And both phones' technology is of a high standard. Its just a matter of personal choice.
