The basic answer to everyone who says Android is just a plastic copy of iOS. Android came much before iOS,and as well the features,specially the drop down notification bar,which released in Android 1.0 prototype,which was not released.It came in the stable release of Android 1.5 cupcake.Oh by the way,iOS 5 is just android! and people who say Samsung sucks,Apple used Samsung parts on the previous models of the iPhone! So think before you speak!!

fastest smart phone upto today is not iphone5,
It's Sony Xperia SL (1.7GHz)
Qua-core has nothing to do with the speed,
It's the ram that take care of tasks.
You can put Dual-core with 2G ram
And it still beat Qua-core
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!

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
