iPhone 5 looks like an incremental upgrade on paper, but once in your hand, only then you realise what a phenomenal upgrade it is. Best choice I ever made.
This is simply put, the best smartphone out there, by being the ultimate package and combination of software, hardware, design, performance and efficiency. Coupled with the superb app store, it is second to none.
There are phones that can beat iPhone on certain individual features, but never together, that's why you need an SGS3 for the screen, the Lumia for camera etc, but the single best package?.... iPhone 5. No contest.

Despite inferior specs, the iphone5 is still the fastest phone on the planet.
No joke. The specs aren't high, but it does everything faster then its top competitors.
How do I know this?
Youtube iphone5 speed tests vs xxx phone. It even beat the note 2.
Apps. Developers focus more on ios then android. Thus giving apple the edge, in fact I think they have a huge advantage on apps.
HOw do I know this?
I have 2 friends who are developers, 1 of them develops apps, the other develops games actually, and he even he said, his company focuses primarly on IOS, because reason 1. Easier to program. reason 2. Finished product is always good even if there is an android version of it.
The retina display to some extent, is already an hd display. Beautiful display.
Quality of the phone.
Check out "drops tests" on iphone5. This phone can really last forever.
So stop accusing apple users of being uninformed. Maybe some of them are, I can equally say the same thing about android users, for buying a phone that has glitches, malware, and scammers.

to me, It felt like I just gave you uppercut to your throat. Apple is operating at different animal then Samsung or any electronic company in the world. They are right up there with Cocao cola right now, and was ranked as the 2nd fastest growing company on the planet behind Coca cola. Apple is fully aware there is competition. You may hate them, but don't over look them, and what their products have to offer. If apple is not for you, then it's not. Android is not for me, because of its choppiness, non stop adds, and inconsistency in their apps. But yes, apple will start to decline a little, but still. It is an amazing accomplishment to dethrone Microsoft. Anyways, if your just here to argue, I suggest you go away. theres no point. You can point out all the flaws you want, doesn't change a thing. Apple is doing fine right now. Is there an apple store near you? Go to it. The apple store in my local mall has 4 times its customers then the Samsung store. No joke.
It costs around $207 to $238 to create an iPhone 5, so by purchasing it we are actually feeding the company itself, not the quality of the phone. I think 4S is still better than iPhone 5, as it seems like there are more complaints with the latest iPhone.
PS: I heard iPhone 5S is just around the corner - 4.5" screen this time?

And then they realise the only reason IOS seems so good is because they focus on the popular minority of features which makes things look good, but then when you looking for anything else you have a choice between an uncool Android or seriously compromising and carrying and iPad and Mac Book to make up for what your iPhone can't do.

But really in the end, ios operates much better then android on any device. Props to them too, the note2 have some very very cool features, like note taking, diary taking, some really really cool widgets. But really in the end, Ios is a much better os then Android. It really is. Apple fully developed the ios to operate and it's max potential, and integrated it's apps to the ios flawlessly. It's really no comparison when developers tell you, that they much rater develope a app for the ios vs android. It's that much better. Problem free. jb.4.2 might be super smooth, but because it's an opened based software it will never catch up to the ios. This is why people will cointinue to buy iphones. It's easy to use, the average person is only doing the following.
making and taking calls
surfing the net.
Maybe watch youtube.
apple is made the following things a top priorty, and you can do any of the above with an ip5 with ease an no issues. While its competitors have added a bunch of features, the average person is just making phone calls and checking email. A lot of the stuff is pretty much not used that often, thus apple has filter those things out. However I do expect apple to make a bigger screen for their ip6. They really have no choice but to make a phone with a bigger screen.
Anonymous, 13 Nov 2012You right, Android and especially Samsung massively outsells iPhone on amount of devices sold ... moreerrrrrr..... everyone knows samsung is the biggest phone manufacture on the planet. Apple was never the biggest, its just that their models are always the most sold on the planet. Samsung releases one new phone every hour, of course they are number 1. Also the S3 barely outsold the ip4s in the time it was released, (6 months) because 6 million other people were waiting for the ip5. Apple is not going down anytime soon, as they are they are the most profitable electronic company. But give props to the S3, it is the most popular phone on the planet. Right now it's a 2 phone race s3 vs IP5. I think once ip5 is fully released in 100 other countries as it's scheduled too, it will be number 1. China is still waiting for this phone, and other countries.
It Looks same as the Iphone 4, But kind of Stretched Half an inch, Disappointed with that, Apple just Rushed this one, S3 Much Better.

http://www.businessinsider.c... moreYou right, Android and especially Samsung massively outsells iPhone on amount of devices sold and 1 thing I do believe in is democracy, because a huge majority of people chose Android and right at this moment the S3 is outselling the iPhone 5, and if you count the other high end Androids that cost about the same as iPhone 5 that means the people have spoke and given a equal choice they'll pick an Android device because it is simply the best.
But with iPhone it's just the wealthy minority that have the most power because sadly money does equal power, and they spend all that money on Apple devices without even thinking which makes Apple the richest, but like I said the people who have the money but are able to make their own decisions mostly go for Android because it is the best choice.

Using emails on iPhone is simply wonderful, and much quicker to come through. The camera is so much easier to get to, and taking pictures in low light is better on iPhone 5. There are more better apps on iPhone, with no adverts/spam interruptions at all coming through to the phone. I noticed with the Samsung Galaxy S3, you cannot move apps onto the memory card. And if there was an app, why should we have to download it when Samsung should've thought of this themselves. When using apps on the SG3, sometimes they would Force Close which isn't very good. iPhone/iOS has the best security system, as you cannot get viruses. Android loves Malware, and is more complex to use. So, that's another app you would have to download for the Android phones via Google Play Store. Why should we have to do this??? Apple has thought of everything, when it comes to stability and security of their operating systems. By the way, I do have both phones so I know what I'm talking about. To conclude, I would definitely recommend any iPhone (particularly the iPhone 5) to anyone who wants a good reliable phone (even the BlackBerry phones are better than Android).
