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.

[deleted post]Wow...what is pros and what is cons? Look more like a list of features...the average cellphone user will not even understand what is said and will also not know how to use it! All phones can make up that feature list...gsmarena allows u to compare phones and the most important basic features are shown. I owned a GS3.... Stay while i looked at it? Not always. What most people want to know is, can i phone, msg, mail, diarise, noting, typing, take pics, and all these type of things thats important. Funny how we all scrutinise reviews etc to suit our own choice. Use the phones side by side in your daily activities, and then talk about it.
iPhone5equalsme, 19 Dec 2012iPhone 5 is the best phone there is. Period.AGREE!!!! Without doubt the best! IPHONE 5!!!!!!!
[deleted post]Wait till you need basics. Windows 8 for pc is missing drivers and lack features of 7. Same will be for os. Ios and android are the only operating systems thats in a class of its own. Do yourself a favour and experience iphone. In a class of its own. Compare apples with apples....ios6 with android jelly bean. Other os is not on that standard.
korbiye, 19 Dec 2012I owned both S3 & Iphone 5, yet i left S3 at home, because Iphone 5 battery life its just ... moreI agree with you. Gave my S3 to my son. And best of all, it's not only the battery. After playing around and starting to use the phone for what you need it for, the iphone suddenly is superior! Thank you!
I owned both S3 & Iphone 5, yet i left S3 at home, because Iphone 5 battery life its just so amazing, even now its shows that usage for 7 hours, and yet left another 37% of battery since last full charge.

futuretech2, 19 Dec 2012iPhone 5 is the successor of the iPhone 4s. For many, the iPhone 5 may be the best gadget out ... moreOnly thing I regret is going after comments and bought GS3! Overrated and not in same class as iphone. I gave it to my son. He is still struggling with sim card that connects and then not. but I suppose its not the phone. Easy to degrade a product. But the good is a lot more. Change of ringtones?? How often is that done. Swipe through homescreen? Most people dont even want to play with phone! They want to use it. And that should be easy. Most complains and claims are made to degrade phone. Maps were a wrong! But how in the world would Google supply the maps now for apple....for FREE! Pros and cons for all phones will add up to roughly the same number. In the end its your personal needs and choice that will decide...
iPhone 5 is the successor of the iPhone 4s. For many, the iPhone 5 may be the best gadget out there. But if you look closely, it's not as good as you think. First of all, the iPhone 5 is extremely expensive. The iPhone 5 tear down suggests that it would take Apple only around 178$ to manufacture one iPhone 5. From there we can get a idea how expensive Apple have tagged their products with.
Most of all, iPhone 5 lacks flexibility. Although iPhone 5 is powered by Bluetooth 4.0, you can't do basic thing like transfer file from one device to another. You still have to be dependent upon iTunes for file transfer. The User Interface looks dull and boring as it always looked. The still aren't home screens to swype through. The notification bar doesn't give you quick access to settings. You have to go through a hefty process just to change your ring tone.
Although Apple has finally increased the size of iPhone to 4 inch, that may not be enough for hard core smartphone users . At least, a 4.3 inch screen would have done the job. Though the screen size has been increased all the apps from the Apple Store are not optimized for iPhone 5. So, we see back empty spaces in many of the applications. Apple decided to remove Google Maps and that was one of their main mistake. Google Maps is the best navigation software so far. Like the iPhone 4s, iPhone 5 has most of it's part made of glass. If you drop it once, don't be surprised if a part of the phone is cracked. Some people say why not keep protection cover but if you keep it, what's the point of having such glossy back?The iPhone 5 also lacks support of micro-sd card. That means you can't expand your device as per your wish. The 32GB and 64GB iPhone are terribly expensive. While a 32 GB micro-sd card only costs about 20$, if you want to have a 32GB iPhone instead of 16GB, you will have to pay 100$ more just for 16GB extra storage. Further, iPhone 5 lacks removable battery option which means no third party powerful battery like mugen batteries. If you travel a tot, you won't be able to carry spare battery due to closed battery cover. In addition to that, the battery life of iPhone 5 isn't that good either. You use a lot of application, then be sure that it won't even last for a day or so. iPhone 5 is no huge leap over iPhone 4s with most of the things kept same.Most of all, Apple's decision to remove Google Maps was a blunder. Apple Maps is nowhere near Google Maps is full of error.You won't get street view feature either. Don't be fooled and never go after apple. Be smart and chose smartphone that best suits you!Honestly, if you don't go for brand name, iPhone just isn't the device for you. Keep all the things I said in mind and you will never regret.

anonymous00, 19 Dec 2012too many complains and claims, It's about personal preferences.... what suits your lifestyle a... moreExactly what you say....it all depends on your needs. And if price is not a factor on your contract, you can pick and choose whatever suit you. For me its iphone, for someone else GS3. And the irony is, that all the complaints and claims I see, neither me nor my son with his GS3 are aware of it or experience it. It's a personal thing! And if ANY phone was ok for you, why in the world would the manufacturer invent something new? That is the main problem with Nokia. My wife and daughter are using N8 and when they upgrade they will go for 808 pure view And all Nokia needed to do was to keep it the same with a few improvements....nokia belle is 100%! Needs speed and hardware things, and it can compare with any phone on the market. That is the recipe of Apple AND Samsung. Look at all the new phones from Samsung...same recipe, just a different package....lol
