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.
yes,dual core 1.3 is faster than android quad core.
but for the least amount of money,i can get more,won't that be great?
700 bucks get a dual core 1.3 with 1560 mah in 2013 doesn't really cut it (i can get more than that with least amount of money)
It nice to see apple do a nice phone like IP5s but it a bit pricey without a contract..anyway,nice review...thank
MisterCats, 28 Sep 2013Have you not heard of ALAC (Apple Lossless Audio Codec)? It's been out forever.Yes, because converting your music every time you wan't to copy it to your phone is really convenient. I mentioned FLAC because it is way more used than ALAC, and all downloadable music I can find is either mp3 (terribad) or FLAC. You won't find ALAC, WMA, WAV, m4p, etc. easily and converting some 30GB of music to put on your phone is PITA. They could've added FLAC support for free because it is FREE SOFTWARE. And nobody should be using mp3 anymore. 2004. has passed so lets leave relics of the past to the past.
AnonD-146024, 28 Sep 2013In 2011 I bought iPhone 4s for me & samsung S2 for wife. Whereas S2 only survived its shor... moreHTC One is a quality device with better build quality and a good size to use in one hand. So stop making excuses and switch already.
Well Apple continues to provide a very average product yet the sheep still come. This phone is a top 10 at best and is lacking in many ways. Apple is stuck in the past. Have fun with your neon colored and "touch id", which was hackex in less than 48 hours!
I really wished GSM review pointed that Atrix was the first to have finger print scan .. so the novelty isnt Apple's :)
