overuse phone it will be with u for a short wile, jus like human....maintain it well, u'll enjoy it for long.
Went to my apple store in my area. Metrotown Burnaby.
Did a scratch test on my own. Keep in mind these are units that are used by thousands of people per week. Looked at a white unit, no scratch marks. Decided to give it a good scratching. No scratch marks appear.
The rumors that this phone is easily scratcheable is the biggest b.s known to man. If you don't treat any phone devices with care, it will be scratched! No questions asked. Anyone who owns a ip5, is stupid not to get a protective case for a 700 dollar phone. But anyways, but on the scratch, there were not visable scratch marks after I scratched it. People complainging about the scracthing issue, is probably a careless iphone owner, or a Android phone user posing as a ip5 owner and complaining about it. Nuff said. You don't believe me? go to your apple store and just scracth the phone. Of course not superhard, just regular scratch. B.S. Android users will use whatever tactic they can say to slam the ip5.

I got like at least 7 friends that own a s3. I decided to play around with his Galaxy 3. One of the things Galaxy s3 users will not there admit, is the glitches and problems with their phone. Because this will expose that phone for what it is. A great phone with many features, however the problems are still there. The S3 is an easy bandwagon to bash the crap outta apple. It's obvious, and a lot of times, we have android users posing as ex apple users saying they are moving to the s3. Really?
Dropped calls, random phone reboots, random crashing, random page reloads, waiting for updates, waiting other updaters to fix another problem, have fun with that android users. I was on a call with my friend who just got a s3.
Dropped call!. LOL WTF!
Went onto youtube, I wanted to see the trailer for the movie "looper". First time, It loaded up resident evil ressurection trailer. 2nd time, it loaded a trailer for another movie. finally the 3rd time, it loaded up Looper. Is this a youtube issue, or the phone issue?
Was on NCIX.com, I needed the wide view, to look at the page, so I turned the phone sideways, to see sideways view, bloody thing reloaded the entire site!! So I lost my search! WTH.
Is the S3 really that good? Or just hype! Hype matters too, but for a phone that has this much problem, they must bull sh itting. Anyways Ip5 >>>S3. Ironically, you can go into the s3 page on gsm arena! There is someone complaining about the phone on at least 1 per page.
2012 is quadcore era. this is only dualcore and poor battery capacity too. low screen size only 4 inch. huawei is better than iphone 5. samsung LG sony high end products are far far better than iphone5
I was an iPhone 4 user before I switched to a Samsung Galaxy S III as I was bored with my iPhone 4 and I wanted to try something new. And so I did. The Samsung Galaxy S III was good phone but I eventually got pissed by it occasionally freezing and some apps crashing. It was a nice phone but the my experience with it unfortunately wasn't all that nice. And now, I've purchased a new iPhone 5. It's all so different from and better than Samsung Galaxy S III. It's so fast, and buttery smooth, never encountered a single crash on my apps. I just love it. I don't get the hate. People should really try the iPhone 5 first before bashing it. Because I've already tried probably the best Android phone and my experience with it is just not comparable to my experience with the iPhone 5. To me, nothing beats the iPhone 5 for the best user experience.
[deleted post]what phone did you get? :p
i also saw your post in iPhone 4S section.
Anonymous, 07 Oct 2012Many people can give you many reasons, but you should only buy it because you want to. I'm an ... moreThats a brilliant answer ..
What folk should do is write down what they expect from their device..Then make a choice a basic fone will do most folk without spending as much.

buppy84, 07 Oct 2012Can someone give me some reason, why i should buy this.Because the upper management of Apple doesn't have enough solid gold Rolls Royces yet.
I have to say, I own an iphone 4 and it is nothing short of an amazing device, however I got my hands on an iphone 5, and really surprised, first of all the the phone feels cheaper in quality than the iphone 4, yet its more expensive, I expected them to add 4mm to the width on just must make it dis-proportionally longer, you worse off with ios 6, no native you tube app, maps not the same,my car does not recognize ios 6, lost huge functionality here. Before Steve Jobs launched a product he made sure what he launched was nothing short of perfect, and that case delays paid off, but now Apple's strategy of delivering on time shows a standard rushed product, that does not fit with the apple culture.
No majors apps where prepared to launch with this phone, how different it was when Steve launched the iphone 4!
2. I believe Apple have also go wrong with its new operating systems. I never want my MAC BOOK PRO into an IPAD type Gadget!! Most people have standard professional applications they want to use on there PC, many people are not interested in cluttering their pc with semi professional applications which end up being used a few times as they would on an iphone. What hurts even more is the core programs that distinguished a mac have not been well updated to function smoothly. In the past Apple used the motto 'everything Works with a MAC' Apple lived to that Motto, now before Apple keeps launching a new OS every year I think they should make the software companies have their software updated in time so that 'EVERYTHING WORKS' AS things stand now, as third parties update the software to work properly, Apple launches a new OS,many people just upgrade blindly and then face the music after with things not working as they should.
Apple should forget their call values if they are to keep their success, with iphone 5, I think Apple are going to give an open hand to SAMSUNG to sell more S3 phones and soon to be S4 versions.
As for the iphone 5, I'm giving it a miss till they launch a better iphone.
