becose of poor perception (anodised+glass+hardware location/radiation) during prototape testing they decide to paint, after produktion of aluminium case start they know it will happend but they were in loose way becose IP5 in that case will be delay more than 3month and lose nearly 23mil USD to reproduce alu case. Im so crazy becose my best friend was killed - this was not selfkilling. They are very bad people. Goudan.
[deleted post]just youtube it! watch gs3 vs. iphone 5 drop test. its like Aluminum vs. plastic you know that im saying a truth! lol!
Agreed .. though Apple launched capacitive touch and awesome display.. but Nokia took it to the next level with use of screen even with gloves on .. thts gr8 help in winter and better pixel density of screen.. best in class maps,camera and wireless charging.. wow.. Apple is really lagging ..

wow iphone 5 has built in dents ? i dropped my sgs3 10 times today to copy this unique apple patented dent but alas my sgs3 is still dent free . shame on sgs3 it is really missing the dents .by the way how much money it saved me from compensation in lawsuits i dont know ?
