Apple may have won the battle when it won the lawsuit against Samsung, but it now appears they are losing the war against Samsung and Android OS.
it seems sad that everyone just look at skin deep.
there are tonnes of re-design changes internally.
iPhone 5 speed is way faster than Galaxy S3 with new CPU design
facepalm at Sammy supporters who only know the big screen size and its brand. LOL
2010 iPhone 4 came out, 90% hate posts, and say SGS is way better. Global iPhone 4 sell proof.
2011 iPhone 4s came out, 90% hate posts, and say SGS2 is way better. Global iPhone 4s sell is proofing again.
2012 iPhone 5 came out, 90% hate posts, and say SGSIII is way better. Global iPhone 5 sell will proof again.
For all the shallow criticism of Apple and the iPhone 5, one of the best features that set even the iPhone 4 apart from the Android offerings at the time was the superior camera. That still holds true with the 4s and now with the 5. The iPhone generally outperforms almost every smartphone camera in side by side tests. The only phones capable of outperforming it have been the N8 and the 808... big Nokia camera beasts.
As for everything else... the iPhone 5 is up to speed with the bulk of the industry, with only a few minor exceptions. And having such a popular phone now being LTE it should theoretically help push the LTE growth globally. Add to that Siri's expanded integration, navigation improvements, HUGE selection of QUALITY apps (not some of that defective junk found on the android market), larger screen (perfect size for me yay) and you have a very awesome sleek phone. This thing WILL sell well. I'm on a smaller local carrier... Now I have to see if they can special order one for me :-) Seamlessly integrating my whole Apple ecosystem! Works like a charm.
While Apple hasn't revealed much technical detail of the specifications behind iPhone 5 and its components, its new A6 processor is reportedly using next generation ARM Cortex A15 cores, making it the first to market with the technology.
According to a report by Anand Lal Shimpi of Anandtech, the performance gains Apple reported for the new A6 chip and other factors means that "it looks like Apple has integrated two ARM Cortex A15 cores on Samsung's 32nm LP HK+MG process."
The site added, "This is a huge deal because it means Apple beat both TI and Samsung on bringing A15s to market."
Previous generations of the Apple-designed chips used in iOS devices used ARM Cortex-A8 (the iPad / iPhone 4 A4) and Cortex-A9 (iPad 2 / iPhone 4S A5) processor cores. The Cortex-A15 is the next major jump for the ARM architecture, which calls the core "the highest-performance licensable processor the industry has ever seen."
So it's true that apple = jobs.
There is no new innovation at all on iphone 5. Lumia is far better than this.
Anonymous, 13 Sep 2012So you want Apple to change its design style? Why? Samsung isn't. LG isn't. HTC isn't. Why h... morewho wanted design change? they INSIST they changed their design, the "all-new design" which is a fail.
they should've said new SIZES.
Apple are misleading their ads again.
You know, the Samsung Galaxy S II is superior to this in all ways bar the screen resolution and ppi. And that phone came out nearly 18 months ago. A poor play by Apple to market old technology as "innovative", "groundbreaking" and "new" technology.
Nowadays we can sum it up to one thing:
Apple = SSDD
we expect you to surpass the s-3 , you disappoint us, we waited this long, and then you've been left behind by s-3., still so far away.., i wont wait for iphone 6, or i can say, can it match from s-phones?, apple can't compete anymore then sue!!
Apple failed to reinvent themselves this time. With these specifications has dozens of smartphones iguais.E usb cable proprietary? Why not a standard usb where we can purchase on any corner?
"creating an entirely new design meant inventing entirely new technology.". ANYONE knows what to say to this?
bean, 13 Sep 2012...have LTE on iphone 5...? ..samsung, you know what to do right...SUE THEM!!!!Samsung doesn't hold the patent on LTE... Nice try.
Verytired, 13 Sep 2012Is it IPHONE5 or IPHONE4s(w). Wide version on 4S. I don't see any design change. Apple fails.So you want Apple to change its design style? Why? Samsung isn't. LG isn't. HTC isn't. Why hold Apple to a different standard?
This just proves that Apple is going downhill w/o Steve Jobs. Nokia should sue Apple (iPod Nano) copying the design of their Lumia 800.
Same old generic design, good thing there are a lot of BETTER alternatives in the market, now there is the Lumia and the Xperias which is better looking than this,, even my Xperia S are far more better looking than Iphone 5, where is steve jobs???? hehehe
Lol at all of the haters out there. Only a bunch of geek droids on here complaining about their insecurities to make themselves feel better. No one cares and there will be millions of people lining up for the iPhone 5.
The iPhone 5 is the sexiest phone ever made to date carved from an aluminum block off from an already successful 4s design but made it thinner, lighter and stronger.
Twice as fast with the new A6 processor with twice as fast graphics. From those who have experience the apps and game differences from android vs iOS right now will be in for more of an ass kicking android will take. Someone said its outdated? Right! Wait for the benchmarks and don't be surprise that it could prove to be the fastest phone out there.
Better connectivity on all facets with minor upgrades everywhere(speakers, cameras, mics, etc.)
But the biggest thing and why one company can't capture millions more sales for their devices including the SG3 is that everyone don't have to carry a Damne suitcase around to protect their oversize bricks. Apple has increase the screen size(beautiful screen that is) but yet be able to keep in a slim beautiful form factor that will attract hundreds of millions of people. A phone should be more compact with higher technology squeezed in a practical form factor. Feedbacks are starting to trickle out after the hands on explaining the purpose apple kept the size down so you would never have to stretch your fingers. And boy I have to tell ya! They were all delightful.
I'm saying this is a perfect phone but Damne it is going to sell over 200 millions of them. Mark my words.
Is it IPHONE5 or IPHONE4s(w). Wide version on 4S. I don't see any design change. Apple fails.
It should not call IPhone5. Should be IPhone4S(w) wide version. Don't fool ppl with new design.
