absolutely no doubt the iphone5 is a good looking phone,shoot,the 4 is awesome looking with the glass on both sides,but unfortunately,THIS handset was introduced with some faults,right off the bat.not many other HIGH end devices have been introduced as praised and regarded as this one, and have had the president of the company come out and say "we made a mistake"(maps)this quickly.i am not trolling but simply not keeping silent as i was in line to buy the new IPOD touch but have turned my back on apple for being brats in the AMERICAN courtrooms and no longer being innovative.
iSJ5, 11 Oct 2012lol note 2 is not a fone! its so stupid to compair it with iphone 5. :pThis is one reason why I will never buy any iPhone http://www.youtube.com/watch?f...Ey2u2n_XTQ#! United States Patent http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi...+AN/Apple%29

Making scratches and dents to iphone5 out of the box is such a difficult process that makes it quite reasonably an expensive unique phone, the best of the best.

People were just sayign s3 is better because they hated apple so much they had to side with the next most powerful android phone. They don't even dare admit it's flaws, with the risk of it showing signs of its weakness, (s3 users) , in hopes to take the ip5's title of top phone on the market.

iphone 5 is made out of titanium..... but, if you think so , then lol on you. The only other phones that use (some) titanium on the planet is vertu' phones which cost 50 thousand us. dollars. But, hey, thats your honest oppinon then so be it. I think it's insane they considered using titanium to make a phone.
I got my iPhone 5 on 5th October! And I was so excited! I am for sure a loyal Apple fan and my last 3 phones have been iPhones, as good as these Samsung galaxy phones may be there is simply no comparison when it comes to iPhone! The operating system is amazing, and the UI is crisp clean and simple unlike the galaxy s3 which I find a jumbled mess! Apple keep it simple and easy for people of all ages! It's simply the best smartphone in the world and I won't have anything else!

And Samsung has absolutely nothing to be embarrassed about because they do every sized phone anyone could possibly want and this fits the market for people who need to carry a tablet but don't want to have to carry one strapped up in a padded case.
So Note 2 just fits that narrow market that some people need and Apple don't offer, and for some people with iPhone and iPad it would be the best thing for them, but it would be ridiculous to say all iPhone owners should buy one.

Even Samsung is embarrassed to call it that and calls it a phablet. They had to call it something else, because even they knew holding up that gigantic thing to the ear looked ridiculous and would just bring on the laughs. Calling it phablet, distracts people, and fooled some people into actually using it. Note 2 sales will be lower than Note. Maybe there will be Note 3 or not, but it will be the last.
Teach me how to F***, 11 Oct 2012APPLE Next phone iPhone 5S. lol Not sure why that would be so funny.
iPhone 5S will probably be faster, with a more mature iOS6, and generally more polished experience. Looking forward to it.
iSJ5, 11 Oct 2012lol note 2 is not a fone! its so stupid to compair it with iphone 5. :pIf Note 2 isn't a phone what exactly would you call it?
You know just because it's too big for you doesn't mean it isn't a phone, I mean an iPhone could never replace an iPad and vice versa.
But the Note 2 can do a fairly decent job of replacing both of those and still fit in your pocket, and that's why people call them Phablets because Note 2 is the ultimate compromise between phone and tablet where with IOS you have no option but to carry both.
So to me the Note 2 is easily one of the best devices to compare to iPhone for a lot of people.
Now I know that IOS is the best in the market. People were saying S3 is better than iphone 5. What happened in the real world iPhone 5 was the better choice. subsequently, Note 2 has arrived now everyone is comparing IPhone 5 with Note 2. I have to conclude that every best phone for it to be best it has to beat iPhone 5. that's why I love iphones. come month end I will be using iPhone 5.

no shit it's better. It came out later, and samsung purposely released this phone after the ip5 with intentions of making a faster and stronger then the ip5. As samsung will keep using this tactic everytime apple comes out with their one phone per year. We all know this, apple knows this. you get the ip5 because ios >>>>>>>>> all versions of androids. Have fun dealing with the note 2 glitches too buddy. In before the note 2 complaints starts piling in like the s3.
well its quiet better in usage as compare to the previous one.But I wasn't expecting dual-core,it should be Quad-core processors.
