Terrier, 20 Oct 2012Google allows Apps on the market you need to Root to use, some phones and tablets come pre-roo... moreroot is for people who wants to make their phone a petri dish.
there should be a manual that comes with root, to guide those people who dont know the risk ( 99 % of users), and prevent them from bricking their phones. (as much as 1.3 getting activated daily, .5 m is getting phased out/replaced, .3 m is getting bricked/deadboot)
as for iphone and lumia phone, you dont need root to get the most out of your phone.

But Apple tried as hard as possible to make Jailbreaking illegal so they have even more control over what people can do on their phones but luckily for once the US courts saw sense and didn't make it illegal.
So if you had any sense at all you wouldn't be proud Apple devices are hard to crack because it just shows Apple doesn't want people to use the devices they paid good money for the way they want to.

Stupid android is already crack able and customizable... It takes real brains to crack iOS and customize it...
People who just want to feel and show that they are some tech geeks easily fall for android.
even if it's polycarbonate if it aint unibody, the moment you drop it... it'll shatter to pieces. ip5 and that beast of a lumia is unshatterabble. unlike that cheap cellophane gs3 (or any shamesung out there)

I just upgraded to the iPhone 5 from the 3GS and I am very impressed with the phone. The speed is awesome and LTE is just amazingly fast. The taller screen and thinner phone are perfect, it fits in my pocket without it bulging. The feel and weight are also perfect in hand.
I used it without a cover for over a week with not scratches, its a shame to cover this beautiful phone but it goes on when I leave the house.
This phone is not for everyone, each has his or her own needs and tastes. For me it a familiar operating environment, its works flawlessly and syncs with iTunes on my Mac Book Air through my home network, no need to plug cables unless you want to restore the phones OS or do an update of the OS.
For those looking for a light and slim phone this is the perfect choice.

But people just want to believe the iPhone's better quality because it has the more expensive materials when it is 100% style over substance.
I mean metal's fine on a car because you just hammer the dents out but a dent in the iPhone is permanent, and I admit the S3 should have had better side protection which is why it breaks easier along with the sheer size of the screen but that's just the way it is.

I experienced it. A friend of mine has it & another has an S3. I have a Note II. Iphone 5 is really depressing

I was like most and got so worried reading about all the initial problems, then I played around with my friend's iPhone 5 and was super impressed.
Ordered mine, and checked in the store in case of any scratches and got a perfect unit. Best buy ever. This is a thing of beauty. Super fast (feels faster than my SGS3). Build quality, apps, games, this phone is simply phenomenal. I don't know how to describe it in words. SGS3 has the edge in screen size, which makes browsing a bit better, but I have to say iPhone 5 feels perfect in the hand.
It's a great smartphone. I am not saying its best, but anyone here saying they bought it and regret it, are simply lying. It is just not possible.
