I used to be a Symbian fan (since N95). Then the iPhone came out. Nokia fanboys at the time were reluctant to give the iPhone a try, but kept saying that it sucked. But the moment I tried one, I couldn't believe how I've lived in denial.
Then I became an Apple fanboy. At the time with my iPhone 4, Galaxy S2 came about. I gave it a try and, well, there were goods and bads. The apps on Android just don't look as good as on the iPhone. Seems like developers develop the iOS version ahead of Android. But the good, I can use my S2 the way I like it, especially with saving files and using it as a USB mass storage device. Different browsers that actually behave like different browsers. What I don't like is how background in is implemented here. I have to keep watching out what's eating my battery. And rouge apps could be running without me knowing. IPhone background in is not real but I actually like it because apps can be truly suspended.
Now iPhone 5 comes along. I think I'll give it a try. My point is, for Apple fanboys, iPhone 5 does lack a bit of customizability, Android gives you much more freedom. But if you like stock everything then what can we do. For Android fanboys, if you haven't tried an iPhone, you really should, you'll be surprised. If you have, you'll understand when I said that both have some shortcomings.
Be open, and be nice.

ok heres the thing i spend way too much on mobiles like an embarrassing amount, swapping brands/os constantly..
and a part of me was hoping the iphone5 would be special.. im almost relieved now after the announcement of the ip5 cas now i no longer feel the need to spend the cash on yet another mobile phone.
take care mate
i just hate the all i sucks ...by the way all 2012 can do better than this useless thing ... especially android devices

If u know anything about Engineering and design, a more advanced dual-core can beat the quad-cores with more RAM. e.g. an quad-core Intel core-i5 can beat a six-core AMD processor. Apple's processor is by far the best and smartest. The software iOS-6 is so designed to work at peak with it's A6-processor. None of the Android smartphones in the planet can match an Apple iPhone in looks and performance.

The best smartphone on the planet. Apple has done it again. The device is truly a jewel to hold, the hardware processor is "the best and smartest". With the latest dual-core ARM-Cortex-15 design, which makes it compete and beat the "quad-core" smartphones. The iOS6 is going to be even smarter (as the iOS5 is already the best mobile-OS in the planet); making the iPhone5 the greatest smartphone ever.
