This article just shows the disadvantage of using aluminum. It's a soft metal, scratches easily and extremely sensitive to a simple drop. Putting a rubberized plastic case in it will just make things worst because dust that get through the casing will definitely leave ugly scars. What a cheap choice of material. Kevlar or polycarbonate is still better.
what a waste of money one day of use and already the phone has scratches...
Anonymous, 22 Sep 2012More bad for iPhone 5... build quality big problem Aluminum? Was iphone 4 & 4S made out of metal sides?

AnonD-8044, 22 Sep 2012So here we go for all the spec obssessed fans the iphone obliterates SGS3,,thats because of pr... moreumm sorry mate, not quite starters that article shows only 2 benchmark results of about 8.. secondly those results shown for the s3 are completely incorrect.. myself for v8 bench reaches over 1800
while an iPhone 5 scores 1601(geekbench) an S3 scores 1788, but if you were to use JB this jumps to 2052.
integer: iphone 1220 vs 1313 galaxy s3
floaing point: iphone 2051 vs 2355 galaxy s3
What is interesting is what happens in Jelly Bean.
integer: galaxy s3 ICS 1313 vs 1805 galaxy s3 JB
floaing point: iphone galaxy s3 ICS 2051 vs 3163 galaxy s3 JB
gettin facts straight
To me it's just in SGSIII league. The problem is SGSIII is 4 months old and we'll be getting more advanced smartphones in the near future. But right now it's probably the best time to buy this phone. With apple's pricing policy, it wont be a good buy in 3-4 months. Right now it's just a little bit overpriced.
iphone 5 has very bad quality http://www.gsmarena.com/certain_black_iphone_5_reportedly_come_with_dents_out_of_the_box-news-4844.php
''it's iPhone against the world'' very well said. You really cleared the truth.You truly have a good sense of choice. Thank you.
AnonD-65637, 22 Sep 2012what!!!dualcore phone ?? O.o Yes the dual core smartfone that blows the competition off the planet.Period.
So here we go for all the spec obssessed fans the iphone obliterates SGS3,,thats because of proper highly polished coding and Apples 1000 engineers working to maximise the A6 chip.
AnonD-64903, 22 Sep 2012Factory Unlocked iPhone 5 16GB in Cambodia is 1200$ . This is stupid price in this poor country. Not even available there pure BS
Although its a big shitty phone apple fanatics with their Iglasses will continue to buy it...
The SG S3 is a far more superior phone than this, and after the JB update it wont stand a chance to it!
FAIL! relieved that I got the SG3 and not this!
well people are finally realising its just a 4s. slightly longer. thats it. nothing more nothing less.

iphone 5 might have a great CURSE from God,
if Apple continues to suppresses other manufacturers out of jealousy.
....the whole world will definitely started hating Apple inspite of their rights.

Sony has higher rated fones and your Samsung Note but they sell very few..
To be honest i am dying to try LG OPtimus 4x thingy but dont trust them..I dont trust their components or updates.
Each person should sit down and jot down what they want their Smartfone to do ticking off really needed specs or apps..If you use your fone as alarm clock,calender,mp3 player text,sms,mms a basic 70 GBP fone can do that.I buy iphone for its consistancy all the time and simplicity,thats what it does thats Apples vision..If you want specs and hacking and big tweeking community Android is the way..You dont spend hundreds of pounds on iphone to put a custom ROM on it and change the Baseband and tweak the CPU do you.
Every company aspires to equal the iphone and i think by the time Android releases Key Lime Pie code it might equal the consistency and fluidity of iphone .Jelly bean is still not their but whatever power and updates they throw at android it it wont stop "Force Close"..
