By the time apple launches 13 megapixel camera,sony or samsung got its 1/1.2inch sensors camera. Apple always lag behind in terms of hardware not to mention their tiny screen still has not improve. Such a pity a good platforms with such outdated spec
Android zombies are obsessed with Apple! It's like an unhealthy obsession. You know the type, where someone has a stalker like obsession with something. Very, very unhealthy. I'm thinking of opening an online support site to help Android fans obsessed with Apple. It should be called www.itsonlyaphonesorelax.com
Please someone use Google Translate and tell me the freaking price.
It has numbers 10000/ 20000/ 27100..........
Whatz all this.
Will the next gen iphone have stereo dual speakers.
But wow it has dual shot camera, that's innovation from Apple. (WTF CopyCats)
Denzo, 01 May 2013Because all the normal things most people need from a smartphone - Looks, Battery, Portability... moreDenzo has it right. Spot on.
I find that a lot of younger people go for Android, while older people go for the iPhone.
I've been back and forward from Apple to Android, and I have to say that iOS is the better experience, and the App Store and iTunes are far superior to Google Play.
There are actually few very few features that Android has over Apple that can be applied to an everyday life.
ISJ5, 01 May 2013the most sensible comment yet!!! well done denzo!Each to their own. Personally I like to have a choice how my phone looks and such like. I also like to be able to swap to a 2nd battery during the day should I wish to do so. Let's face it many smart phones struggle to do a whole day now for heavy users. I want the choice of inserting a memory card in to my phone with music already on it, and not be dependent on iTunes.
Anonymous, 01 May 2013Apple sale will go down down I'm not analyst bs, but watch next quarter will be the worst ever for Apple since 2010.
u-m-add, 01 May 2013allow speed and multi tasking Soo, u used u phone to listen to music , while playing game ,... moreHow can u browse web,listen to music ,play game and watch a video at same time?how can you have web/video/game on screen at same time and how could you concentrate on all 4 at same time????
Jeanandroidfan, 01 May 2013I do not know why people buy iphones while there is sony and htc and nokia ( yeah even wp8 is ... moreBecause all the normal things most people need from a smartphone - Looks, Battery, Portability, easy to use, an excellent camera, fast and fluid UI, latest games and apps, and beautiful graphics probably help.
The fact that its Music store and App store are hands down the best doesn't hurt either. As well as so much exclusivity on many games (eg Street Fighter series to mention one of many) and apps as well.
Other things which are a draw are things like iMessage (I just works and uses very little battery), iCloud is seamless, and it woks with everything at home perfectly if you have an iMac or Apple TV.
Its not for everyone, but to me things like eye scroll (doesn't really work at all) and gimmicks like that probably don't draw in people who know what they are doing. maybe If I was a kid I would be attracted to these sort of things, but as an adult, I want stuff that just works, not incomplete ideas. Hover touching? What is honestly the point? You are holding a little phone in your hand, and you have your finger right there.. why not just touch the screen?
Or the other "new feature" Samsung has where if you are watching a video and look away it pauses.. that's great.. but again it doesn't really work, and requires your entire head to leave it field of view, which is impractical particularly if you are holding the phone to begin with.. just press pause.
Obviously the majority on this website wont agree with me, I don't mind, to me that's what it is. And you don't sell 35million premium phones a quarter to many engineers, lawyers, doctors, teachers, finance people.. if the product is rubbish.
but hey, what do I know? maybe eye scroll is the new way to go.
[deleted post]same spec, but can $200 phone match with iphone 4 ?
my review : because android a little uncomfortable for me (i have using Xpera Z for A month and, it's still laggy! trust me!) what the xxxx? it's quad core right? latest graphic processor (look at i5..it's just 2core + 3 or 4 core graphic processor but it's really fluid!) and then i have to sell it (yes, just a month with Xperia Z!)and 1 again, my friend, using xperia arc and install 1 game, but i couldn't install it (it says that Xperia Z didn't support it! what the xxx?! latest high-end gadget but doesn't support?what a shame... *dungeon hunter 4)
WP?it's better than Android for me. it's stable and fluid but really2 lack of software support :( (i lived in 3rd world and didn't have any credit card, but i could use itunes gift card to buy legally application)
Check this iOS app too. I am sure you will like it too: (both full and selective area effects)
guyver12005, 01 May 2013I use mine down loading movie from torrent apps while down loading music from mp3 skull using ... moreso ur phone internet must very very fast, can download torrent and download porn and web browsing at same time. i envy that. i have to used home internet to get fast speed on downloading .
if. "IF" i can do like u do on my iphone i will not do it. better i do that using my pc than using my phone. duh!!!
Hesht, 01 May 2013I'm gonna guess: same design, possibly thinner, higher MP count on camera and. . . gonna guess... moreI doubt they will upgrade the 5S to a quad core, because then they would have to finally upgrade the battery, and then make the phone bigger. I feel like Apple is not willing to go that far just yet.
