I wish the apple install the FM radio station for more features. This is the dis advantage for the Iphone compare to Samsung galaxy. In FM radio station i want to hear my favorate djs. Now im planing to sell my Iphone 4s and buy samsung note s2 a lot features are there and applications.
Are you crazy........apple is the best
I agree that apple Iphone5 has some disadvantages
I am useing Samsung galaxy S2 for one year now but its qualty is not good as iphone
You feel samsun is a toy phone
Apple software is better
If you jailbreak your iphone you can get free apple paid apps so now android market 70 percent of it is free but apple apps which is better is 100 percent free after jailbreak
Ios is more simple but i see that there is no use of widgets of android
The battary of iphone is 100 percent better than any android battary
If you does not use your iphone for 2days the the battary of it will not lose even 1 percent but android phone canot set for 2 or 3 days without chargeing
Anonymous, 18 Nov 2012It's not inferior coding it's all about optimisation of system resources, because if you make ... moreFailed optimization i would say...
If you have a little of brain or say it is not brainwashed by the illusion of freedom shown to u by your windows or android than you would see that iOS works just as smoothly in all different intel processors... Its not the name of the brand or the category(like gaming pc) which counts but the type of processor via which binary commands are given and channeled...
Talking bout lowest of the denominator my friend, iPhone 3gs is is the lowest denominator with iOS while jelly bean doesn't have this low a denominator so please recheck whatever u said only actually says how crappy android and its inferior coding is...and how superior iOS is...
Proper multitasking is not hard to pull, its hard for android and google to pull it, there are a number of useful apps in iPhone which does proper multitasking with awesome smoothness...
Widgets being useful or not is just bout different opinions, for some it is useful some only consider it as a waste of power and useless complexities...but still compare it to windows live tiles if u r talking bout constantly running weather and news and lot more, than you'll see how buggy android is...
IOS is definitely not basic...only people who don't go deeper into it say such foolish notions... If you feel android is for tech geeks and iOS is plain and simple (like many fools think here) let me tell u its not...its quite the opposite in reality...try cracking iOS and u'll know your answer...
iPhone user, 18 Nov 2012I have a 64GB iPhone 5. I don't have to worry about saving my apps on my phone cos it goes on ... moreAlso in addition to what was just said, you can move any App or file to external SD using App called Directory Bind and technically there is some viruses but I don't know anyone that's had one and you don't get viruses from Apps from Google Play, Amazon Apps etc. and you only find any kind of Malware usually on "Cracked" Apps, and what you call spam is simply Ads that mean almost 75% of Android Apps are free, and Google actually cares that people get peed off by Ads so they allow Ad blockers free to download from Google Play even though Google make almost all of their revenue from Ads.
iPhone user, 18 Nov 2012I have a 64GB iPhone 5. I don't have to worry about saving my apps on my phone cos it goes on ... moreHahaha! Very funny! For your information SG3 comes in not only 16GB storage, there are also 32GB and 64GB SG3.
And an additional option of external SD card memory of up to 64GB.
Putting it together, the 64GB SG3 + 64GB SD card gives you 128GB of space!
Who needs the useless Emojis? It is not that significant.
The "Force close" you are talking about is not from the unit, it is the defect from the application itselt.
It has nothing to do with the performance of the unit.
Even PC applications and programs experience this thing you are refering to as "Force close".
That is why there are softwares and applications updates to get rid of those bugs from the apps.
I'm really disappointed at what the Ip5 has to offer their specs is like from 2011.. its 2012 now and all I can say is apple is the one who has a lot of catching up to do.. These Ip5 Specs are nothing compared to the S3... even the S2 can match up to this specs..
Just my honest opinion..
AnonD-78436, 18 Nov 2012Widgets are not hard to run my dear... Its hard for android to run them... Its not bout multit... moreIt's not inferior coding it's all about optimisation of system resources, because if you make an OS that only has to work on a single device like Apple does it is much easier to make the hardware and software run together.
But Windows and Android both have to be coded for the lowest common denominator, which means it has to work on the lowest powered devices as well things like Gaming PCs & S3, Note 2 etc, and Google has worked incredibly hard on making optimisation easier for phone manufacturers and anyone who's spent a bit of time on a Jellybean device knows they right up there even though S3 is still running on the old A9 cores albeit 4 of them.
And proper Multitasking is incredibly hard to pull off while still looking smooth while still running a load of Apps, and the Note 2 and soon the S3 will have in December the next stage of multitasking called "Multi-Window" because you can have 2 Apps running side by side on the same screen, and Widgets aren't as hard to do as full Multitasking but it is still very difficult because you can have dozens of Widgets all running and it's able to give you things like constantly updated live news, weather or anything you like really.
And I know for a fact that if Apple ever does add Widgets people are gonna realise just how basic IOS is and all they've done is taken IOS from 6 years ago and keep polishing and most of the features can be achieved by just installing an App.
Anonymous, 18 Nov 2012It's very sad that anyone can actually be delusional enough not to see Apple leaves out or won... moreWidgets are not hard to run my dear... Its hard for android to run them... Its not bout multitasking that makes android look crap in front of iOS, it is its inferior coding...
IOS has achieved superior quality smoothness and robust mechanism even with inferior specs even on mac books which my friend do have multitasking...
The sad part is indeed that how much a user can be delusioned by features, that are not even needed or can be moved around and done, that they bind themselves to it so much and still talk bout freedom...!!
TryUsingIt, 18 Nov 2012I mean less tan a year after i bought my unit the "upgraded" version came out. I did... moreFrom what the expert rumours are saying the 5S will be out in march so that's only 6 months between models, and if that's true it's almost certain they doing it because even the Fanboys are complaining the iPhone 5 isn't as good as it should be and it's had a huge amount more criticism than anything they've made since before the iPod.
iam confused tht which one is better black iphone 5 or white both r nice colour but obviously i wil take one
Anonymous, 18 Nov 2012Ha ha ha ha. You speak as if android is ahead... Even with taking two steps ahead its nowhere ... moreIt's very sad that anyone can actually be delusional enough not to see Apple leaves out or won't allow a mountain of features that could make the phone better, but they only allow anything if there's a lot of money to be made, where Android developers have almost total freedom and you get almost anything anyone can imagine.
And anyone who's used a phone running Jellybean knows speed and smoothness is almost matching iPhone now, and since multitasking and Widgets are seriously hard to run smooth that is a serious achievement, where because IOS is only single dimensional and only has to do 1 thing at a time and is optimised to run on just 1 phone instead of hundreds anywhere from $70 up then IOS really isn't impressive at all.
Anonymous, 18 Nov 2012what R U Talking about???!!! an entire year between each models, I mean less tan a year after i bought my unit the "upgraded" version came out. I didnt buy my phones immediately after they come out. So now ill wait if/when a 5s version comes out.
The size is juss growing bigger this phone is embarrassing we expected better not worst l hope the iPhone swill b much better
I will still go for Gs3 bcz of the tech use in it , its massive & wonderful , iphone 5 got nothing just watse of money
I still cant decide if i should buy this phone or not. Im kinda waiting/hoping/fearing that apple will come up soon with an iphone5s. Like when i bought my iphone3g then the 3gs came out. Then when i got my iphone4 the 4s came out.
I ended up buying samsung note 2 which now resides inside my locker as i went back using my iphone.
I dont understand why many people claiming one device is better than the other because of better looking spec sheet. Why not just compare the actual performance especially on consistency and connectivity.
Nobody, 17 Nov 2012Admit it, Apple is dead! Just like Steve Jobs. 1. Its too expensive. 2. No slot for memor... moreI have a 64GB iPhone 5. I don't have to worry about saving my apps on my phone cos it goes on automatically. The SG3 phone can't even save apps on the SD card only on the phone - ha ha! The apps are way better on the iPhone. The iPhone has Emojis which are well cool - the SG3 doesn't - ha ha! The iPhone NEVER gets virus' or spam pushed through their phone but SG3 does - ha ha!! The SG3 has to have an antivirus app installed. Oh yeah, when you're on an SG3 you sometimes get Force Close. The iPhone doesn't get that. .
