" but will upgrade the graphics from a triple-core PowerVR SGX 554MP3 GPU to a quad-core variant of the same graphics chips."
Do you mean they will upgrade to SGX 543MP4 for the 5S? The iPhone 5 doesn't have SGX 554, that's iPad 4. IPhone 5 has SGX543MP3.
ifans alway in defensive mode no matter what. They used to say "CHEAP" does not exist in Apple's dictionary. What happen now ??

budget iphone may have a SINGLE CORE cpu used in ip4, n 4 inch screen ,nothing new

Seems apple is changing their strategy to copy samsung. But android is much better than ios, thats why samsung will be the king for next 5 years. Android is the best mobile OS for next 5 years.

I believe Samsung make... moreInside any Samsung phone you'll find chips from Qualcomm, Toshiba, Broadcom, Samsung, ARM, etc... same as you'd find in a iphone. Iphone camera and Samsung camera are both made by SONY. All these phones are made in China. Lets not forget that both companies are paying royalties/licensing fees to Motorola, Ericsson, etc...
You're buying a brand, a brand that compiles multiple components into a usable device. Apple has the advantage of also having it's own OS, where as Samsung depends on what Google produces.
Still don't know why every Android user wants to hang onto Samsung, Sony has much nicer designs.
Zedger, 09 Jul 2013I'm sure it runs all the modern apps smoothly as well.If they were optimized (ie made available) for Symbian, probably they'd run smooth enough. Symbian is by far the most resource-efficient OS out there.

And Android has poor RAM management, its apps and features getting a few MB of RAM, otherwise the Galaxy S$ and HTC One would run apps very fast. In terms of hardware, no iPhone comes close to what was made after 2011, even today.

. It's not a budget iPhone but it's an iPhone which is still costly even with the budget tag with it. iPhone 5S all the way.

And alloys might be even cheaper than pure aluminum.
I much rather get the iPhone 5 when the price drops after the launch of iPhone 5s then this shit
