Samsung is about to dump this rotten Apple:
AnonD-71638, 15 Sep 2012Hi, Parker...my friends have been reading your posts and you are one of the most objective sin... moreJust go on eBay and search NFC tags and there's any amount on there but I picked the Sony Xperia tags 2 for $4 and just waiting for them to arrive.
I mean I won't know that much myself until I get them but basically I just turn on NFC in my S3 settings then there's any amount of Apps on the market where you write information to the tag then set each tag to do a certain task on phone when the phone is within 10cm of it, and what I'm gonna do is stick a tag on the phone holder in my car so as soon as the phone goes in holder it'll turn the Bluetooth on and switch to driving mode.
And I'm gonna use another tag on my bedside cabinet to switch phone to silent mode.
And I'm sure I'll have more ideas eventually.
If steve jobs should alive the ipohne 5 should never look like this
AnonD-56991, 15 Sep 2012Also if anyone still thinks phones don't need NFC then just imagine this... You buy NFC tags ... moreHi, Parker...my friends have been reading your posts and you are one of the most objective since you are not biased...you give credit to where it is due even if its an Apple product...I own a 3gs and 4s but I'm thinking of trying S3 because of NFC...how do you get the NFC tags and how do you put it on the phone...please elaborate, Thanks :)
iSJ5, 15 Sep 2012no! its not about bashing! i still Deppend apple but this is realy sucks!Your english really sucks too and I dont tell you that your a piece of crap!
Most of the comments here express the actual feelings of iphone fans all over the world...and that is a feeling of utter disappointment...as an avid Apple follower myself, I bought the ipad, iphone 3gs and 4s...but I will definitely not waste any of my money on an iphone wanabee like iphone 5, which is by Apple's high standards...really sub-standard...Yes its not the worst phone in the world...But still Apple did not deliver as they have bragged about for months on end and then we end up with an $800.00 loser phone...This would not have had happened if Steve Jobs was still CEO...go to hell Tim cook! U Suck Bad!
chris, 14 Sep 2012this phone is over rated no big difference with the iphone 4s : IMAOThen don't buy it and continue on living your life...
Im making the move from an iPhone 3gs to an iPhone 5 and believe me, its way better and faster than the 4s
wash me, 14 Sep 201280% people using ANDROID phone in USA And 50% people using APPLE.That means 130%...
WOW man, you must have rocked in junior math class!!
All of this for their new iDumb 5 and STILL no radio??? LOL
No NFC either (claiming Passbook will do this) LOL
Must be the aluminum case (which they had issues with before) blocking all sorts of radio-type signals, etc...!
I have a Samsung Galaxy S24G and with a few mods or software I can have the same if not better (except for the battery-life): I can even add the S3 stuff with not too much trouble with software, etc...!
I don't even have to use iTunes, etc... LOL
I wonder when the next Samsung vs iDumb court case will be, or what about?? LOL What a joke iDumb!!!! Samsung should just stop making chips for you!
Nice TRY for a nice looking phone though!!!!
Perhaps its time Nokia should also get a 4G phone, provided they do not use Win8, they have most everything included in their phones now and have done for a long time. GO SYMBIAN!!!! LOL: You would never think I am still a heartfelt Nokia fan, now would you? LOL
wash me, 14 Sep 201280% people using ANDROID phone in USA And 50% people using APPLE.Thats because google get there software on anything they can
This phone without FM is useless. SEC. camera is only 2MP which is also not good. Further its cost of about 680 Euro is not justifiable
wash me, 14 Sep 201280% people using ANDROID phone in USA And 50% people using APPLE.80% + 50% = 130%. Good one, mate.
Overall iPhone5 is a bit dissapointed as compare the current market mobile devices that available. However, we must also appreciate Apple team to create this new iPhone 5 with detail cincern to the user. Such like the handy issue so the iPhone to be taller rather than maintain 4:3 ratio which would cause problem for certain stage of ppl like ladies.Tmprovement from 3.5" to 4" screen size is another breakthrough with 7.6mm thickness. The overall phone design material is really high quality as compare most of the phone out side which still majority uses plastic case which looks less in durability. New in cell touch screen make the phone thinner with aluminium metal body also make the phone lighther for convenient carry for every user. However, son't all of us notice that iPhone still maintain better graphic density wuth 326ppi at the screen size of 4" because most of the market phone is apply less ppi with bigger screen size means less detail when the screen is being zoom in?
iPhone 5 is without NFC function which is one of the surprise that as we compare with the rumor but believe there is reasons behind. May be one of the issue is the e-Wallet is not yet common in market and this function may appear in the coming iPhone.
With al the specs reveal in the iPhone 5, I truely believe Apple is making a phone that is sincerely design for all user but not sertain group of people and everything design is base on Quality, Productivity, and performance.
Credit to iPhone 5 and apple team.
people r crazy to buy iphone 5 and before launching long lines created outside apple store is it possible for any android set definitely No.And iphone share is 16% in the world then u also know that with limited sale apple get maximum revenue thats mean its sale on premium.and apple is the richest company in the world while samsung has huge variety products but can not come near the apple.
