It has the best CPU in the world. I dont even care what else it does, it has the best OS, thinnest, aluminum, glass, apps, and now we know its fast with the latest A15 processor (first to market with A15 - even over power house SGS3, which has old A9 tech!) You wouldnt think Apple, ye of little innovation, has the best CPU.. how is this possible?
I'll tell you how, you get what you pay for.. you want old cheaper tech wrapped in plastic, get an SGS3, you want style and power, its comes at a price and its called iP5!
why do you not give us 1700 frequency?! another reason why samsung>apple
AnonD-70590, 15 Sep 2012Well I grounded my iphone 4 (gave to wife ) and ipad 2 (gave to daughter) and bought tab 7.7. ... moreSo true but Jelly Bean should bring screen refresh rate up to 60FPS in line with iPhone .Yes the thing is most Androids are fragmented and ICS is rare on a device never mind waiting for Jelly Bean.
Trent33, 15 Sep 2012and where is your proof of this mr. steele? aside from your obvious bias towards iphone 5...yo... moreInspite of just being jealous and throwing such comments, u should actually do research on it...as MULITASKING word has been grabbed from some review in 3GS and 4, not 4s or 5...i want you to check the review when gsmarena releases it...and yes i am not saying iphone 5 is the best handset!!!!
iCedie, 15 Sep 2012There are a lot of bitter&sour people talking about iphone5.. They are just insecure.. Duh... morenot insecure at all :) the iPhone 5 cannot hold a candle to the Quad-core Androids. If anything the Android fans can smile knowing anyone with the iPhone 5 is still sour/upset that Apple didn't try innovate something new which they never did not even with the 4S. :)
iSJ5, 15 Sep 2012i agree with you!Thats your opinion but millions disagree..They wont do here on gsmarena because no one visits that i know personally..Only few thousand folk visit this site and the normal person on the street just buys iphone no questions asked .
What i mean is voting here on gsmarena or comments mean nothing in reality..I was pretty fast trying to order iphone but still lost out on first batch so have to wait 3 weeks now..Mind you thats still quicker than waiting months for Nokia or Samsung to release a phone..You lot can try all you want here on gsmarena to put folk off iphone5 but it will still be fastest selling electronics device ever..It will still sell millions.
There are a lot of bitter&sour people talking about iphone5.. They are just insecure.. Duh?!? They do rather choose plastic/copycat and no originality products.. Hellerr?!?!?! Buy your very own Samsuck Fandroid!
Anonymous, 15 Sep 20121. Although the second one has quad core processor, two of them are virtual, and the rest are ... moreyour right about one thing the there are no apps that use the quad cores however there will be in the future so it's more of when there will be an app that uses 4 cores.
appledestroyer, 15 Sep 2012this phone is horrendous apple are yet again ripping there customers off by slightly changing ... morehey plz boii.......iphone is the best phone.....in 2007 everyone said tht....now every1 turned against apple ....haha.....the original inventor was apple and vil remain on the top always
Trent33, 15 Sep 2012Can you answer this question...? Can iphone 5 do REAL MULTI TASKING, such as...play a saved vi... moreHe will ignore your question because it puts apple and iphone to one of its greatest disadvantages...apple ios is only fast because it can only handle one major task at a time...even if apple will put a 10 core on the iphone it would be useless because iphone 5 CANNOT multi task...AND WHY BOTHER...MR STEELE WILL BUY THE IPHONE 5 EVEn if the only thing it can do for him is hit him on the face...hahahaha he will buy iphone 5 even if it was made of stone! hahahaha he can't answer your question! lol
AnonD-52562, 15 Sep 2012Does everbody knows the Russian LADA cars ? Look at this, but dont interest with BMWs :) And... morewell You said that its not the thinnest not go on to the reports or things like that, search for urself. Are those phone easily available which are having 6.1mm I didnt even knew whether they exist or not. But yeah samsung is the first competitor of Iphone so iphone beat it by this.
iphone presentations used to be exciting, and always had the WOW factor...back when steve jobs was still alive...but most of the apple fans here (aside from blind duds like, mr steele) are afraid to admit that apple failed us fans...htey failed in the design and made it ugly by stretching the screen...did NOT do any REAL innovation...aside from copy panorama and LTE from HTC and Samsung, etc...and they did not live up to the promise that iphone 5 will be the best smartphone of 2012...my iphone 4s is a much more beautiful device because its screen is balanced...but I am not afraid to admit that apple under Tim Cooks leadership is going downhill with the iphone 5
Well I grounded my iphone 4 (gave to wife ) and ipad 2 (gave to daughter) and bought tab 7.7. which served both purpose. I was waiting for the iPhone 5 so that I could go back to more stabler OS with significant hardware upgrade. but this release of iphone 5 was like another incremental similar to 4S only thing good here is the slight bigger screen still smaller then the enter level of 4.3 which has become a norm. The processor is powerful but I think iPhone 4S processor was more then good for this iOS. Atleast they should have changed the shape and not look like hammered 4S to make it longer. Very boring design. The Nokia 920 release looks more exciting then this. Now I will hold for few months to decide between Window or iOS. Need to move away from Andriod as it is fragmented took ages to get ICS and no chance of getting Jelly bin.
