AnonD-8044, 29 Sep 2012Ive had s3 and eye tracking does not work when you want it too at bedtime,,nfc to swap a photo... moreLook, I posted much more comments on the S3 forum than here. :P Anyway, the S3 is better. It has a bigger screen, better battery capacity, it has more storage, more Ram. Iphone has a better built in quality which is very important I admit.
Main disadvantages ::::::lots
Aluminum body looks cool but is easy to scratch
Proprietary connector, incompatible with previous-gen accessories (needs adapter)
The new display is not proportionally bigger, but only taller
Unadapted apps run letterboxed due to the unusual resolution
nano-SIM support only
Apple Maps app not up to scratch
No USB Mass Storage mode
No FM radio
No stereo speakers
No microSD card slot
No NFC connectivity (though that may be nitpicking)
Stuck with iTunes for loading content
Mono audio recording in video
Y u no hd display. Almost all high end smartphones have HD 720p display. The best display is provided by Sony and Htc Example: Sony Xperia S, Htc Rezound.
guys i have an android phone but i prefer iOS because it is simple and easy to use than android.... iPhone 5 is better than Galaxy S3....right the S3 has quad-core but the ip5 is faster than s3 if u dont belive watch comperasion in youtube and siri is much better than s voice and there was more apps in app store than google play and gaming on ip5 is better than s3 because the SGX543MP3 is stronger than MALI-400MP...this is my opinio and thanks.
apple wins in power consumption against s3
Essentially its meant to be a premium product. yeah right.
its a happy shopper product built in a cheap chinese factory, sold at rolls royce prices.
Anonymous, 29 Sep 2012The best is any phone that serves you best. Thank goodness you wrote that commen sense comment..Its a pity 90% of folk on here dont think like that..The best smartfone ever on the planet is the one that suites your needs..
Mobilemaster, 29 Sep 2012I am not interested in Apple products, I am a Samsung and Motorola fan. Iphones are too limite... moreIve had s3 and eye tracking does not work when you want it too at bedtime,,nfc to swap a photo how many times a day do you use this..Maps i dont use ,dont need it in UK ..All your doing is bashing iphone digging up any pathetic item which is of no real use to anyone..cough gimmick.
You say its got eye tracking but did you know it draws more battery powering the front camera than it saves turning screen off =fail...Eye tracking i tried in daytime and it sort of worked but reading at night then looking away at tv does screen go off,NO,=fail..
NFC is non existent in uk and to swap a photo is rubbish what photos are you swapping everyday come on how many and what are these photos of?..I email them at full res after downloading to computer if anyone wants to see my photos..
Now i know your nitpicking because lots of other phones DONT have these feature but you dont pick on them just iphone...Iphone is not right for you so you bash it which is very mature..
The folk who purchase an iphone know all this and dont care..Its only you who is bothered..Why it bothers you so much can only be down to you cant afford one or jealousy,,after why else would you be so concerned about iphone when their are 100's smartfones to pick on.
You have to pick iphone as choice because your jealous or cant afford it ,,you dig up point after point that everyone buying iphone knows,,millions of them.Why are you NOT bringing up these points in the LG,SONY,SONY ERICSSON,ALCATEL,BLACKBERRY,HTC forums ,,come on why not,,why are you not nitpicking all these other companys smartfones???????????????
Its because your jealous of iphones popularity,you cannot bear anyone buying iphone,,it eats you up everyday that folk buy iphone..It will shorten your life getting so irate over a box of silicon that is NOT EVEN ANY OF YOUR BUISNESS,,you dont own iphone but you spend your life on this forum which is stated in dictionary as jealous hypocracy..
You can keep coming on here with your silly gimmicks of the sgs3 we buy iphone because it has no silly gimmicks..I cant believe you said about eye tracking when it does not work generally and sucks up lots of power keeping the front camera alive to track your eyes you big dimwit.
You state at the end your SAmsung fan,,so you spend all your time in iphone forum?? certainly not sure of yourself are you..If you think logically a Samsung fan would be,lets say, in the Samsung forums unless you bought an iphone today and you want to talk about it.
this will cheer the iphone haters up,
Denzo, 29 Sep 2012Hey guys so I thought I should post up a review of the iPhone 5, from my short experience with... moreDude. thanks for sharing your knowledge I'm waiting for mine to come... thumbs up iPhone 5
I am very amazed that Apple does not have its own factory, all the Apple concerned products are made by Foxconn.
