Really?, 28 Sep 2013So to summarise: 1. Apple has created synthetic test monster, yet again, for 2013. So much... moreLet me add another. 11. People usually puts plastic case or bumper which eclipse it's beauty and increase its size and weight hence making it just like other plastic phones.
So to summarise:
1. Apple has created synthetic test monster, yet again, for 2013. So much so that the phones main function, the web browsing (other than calls) is ridiculously better than any other phone right now.
2. Its battery life is more than acceptable.
3. You can get up to 64GB, with most people only needing 16GB I am sure.
4. Its screen is fantastic, although not as big as you'd like - even though sales figures clearaly suggest that people like smaller screens for their phones - you guys still seem to think bigger is better when it comes to MOBILE phones.
5. iOS7 does everything you need from a phone for most people, and arguably, does what it does better than any other phone available. (I dont know a single person who would use eye scroll)
6. Its expensive.
7. Its the most refined and expertly crafted phone, that oozes quality in your hand.
8. It offers 64 bit processing - a world first in a phone. (guess what! Samsung is now PROMISING to sell that soon as well)
9. Its butter smooth to use.
10. And although GSMArena says its a disadvantage being smaller - its also a lot more comfortable and easy in your pocket!
Quite frankly, I dont care about the Android stuff the same way I do about the Apple, but all these people, most probably paid, get some some sort of personal vendetta against Apple - just cause they are a premium brand.
if you dont get it, dont worry about it, just enjoy your plastic phone with laptop size and awesome BENCHMARKS and leave the people to enjoy their iPhones - I know what I like as well as most people.
The only thing I find amusing, is how android people seem to think because they spend more time, or need to spend more time I should say, operating their phones, that this some how makes them smart... as if operating a phone requires some sort of education.
The fact is - professionals with varying backgrounds in finance, law, engineers, etc either have an iPhone cause it does everything unmatched and beautifully - unless of course you need rock solid security for emails in which case you get a BlackBerry.
All these people like mobile phone sales people - think they are educated because they operate a phone with moving backgrounds. thats just funny.
Best smartphone in the world. I can't wait to have this phone. The only phone that is worthy replacement to my Lumia 920.

People are too lazy to get it fixed or it's too expensive. Apple now provide accidental damage cover for such scenarios with Care+.

You need to try iPhone to see if it suits your needs or not, then make a call whether spending that kind of money is worth it.

Few months ago gsmarena shows that , millions of mad apple users still using their iphone with shattered glass. Apple fan's only need some gimmick names, like retina .
[deleted post]It's a fair comment. I've had my iPhone 5 for 7 months now and tried to take care of it the best I can, but even in a case it will scratch the aluminium, especially when dust or sand gets stuck in between it accidentally.
It doesn't make it less functional, but from a resale perspective it's not great.
AnonD-5197, 28 Sep 2013Cons - TouchID is greatly underused. Absolutely as expected.What GSMARENA are saying is that the use of TouchID within the OS is limited, not that people are not or won't be using it.
According to PCMAG, only 50% of users use a passcode to protect their phone. TouchID could potentially increase this number because of its simplicity.
TouchID will eventually be extended to other services, I'm sure, but for now, let's get people using it for the most basic of things.
[deleted post]Before you throw around baseless accusations, what makes you think the Note 3 has been at GSM Arena for weeks? Get a grip and stop being idiotic.
This is the honest review of iPhone5s
4"with 320 PPI on a 2013 flagship?
With limited ios?but people love to pay and get this..
Am sure apple is falling slowly for now despite their sales innovation lags.people buy apple only for its looks.
Htc one combines both power and premium feel.some 2012 flagships are way better than this iPhone5$$$$$$$
[deleted post]With the iPhone there are a lot less features to cover than with a smartphone like the Note 3. With an iPhone "s" review, they edit the review from last year a bit and it's done.
AnonD-191159, 27 Sep 2013Still not possible to bluetooth your mp3 or pictures to your friend using the iPhone? The blue... moreIn some other way Bluetooth may not be as functional as others...
But I used Bluetooth on my iPhone to control my keynote presentation on my iPad...
Stunning! My audience appraised that kind of synchronicity between iOS devices...
So true... "As long as the cash keeps pouring in, Apple can go on and play its own game and make its own rules."
It is you die-hard fans that make Apple to be complacent, snobbish & lack of features but still selling at a premium pricing!
What happened to Quad core Androids? Dual Core IPhones beat the hell out of them in. Bench Marks!
They are now readying for 64 Bit Octa Core Droids Flagship!
But wait iPhone 6 with Quad Core 64 Bit..., again, it will beat those Octa Cores!
Peace Man... Upgrading now my 4S to 5S!
AnonD-36554, 28 Sep 2013Can anyone explain me how can a dual core 1.3 ghz come on top against the likes of snapdragon ... moreBecause Android has a lot of things going on in the background compared to Apple which runs pretty much only the apps on screen. A good analogy would be you racing with Usain Bolt whilst he is brushing his teeth with one hand and flipping up a french toast with the other. Maybe you can keep up with Bolt but are you actually faster? If you want to bench equally then you'll have to load a light rom with no background process and then run the benchmark. Only then will Apple be smoked.
