but according to android users...there is never anything new that iPhone does, so why even be curious? the hoopla has been since the first iPhone and the opinion of android fans has never change..."iPhone never does anything new". so why show up to down play what Apple does.

HAHAHAHA! The Flop device of the year really. How can they top or even equally match up against Samsungs/Sonys/HTCs/Nokia's flagship devices?

LIKING iPhone and iPhone actually BEING better are 2 different things. Everybody has their own opinion, but that will never take away from the simple fact that 1 device is flat out better than another in any given field

that's the problem though..."better" doesn't come down to spec for spec...it comes down to what the individual thinks is important in all aspects. if that was the case, anything that had the best specs would be the only item selling. you use to find people on this site biased x10 against Android...now its all Android fans biased against anything Apple. You can just type the word Apple...& you'll get 65 thumb downs. I have yet to see a valid argument yet on why iPhone isn't good. with all the specs packed into the latest androids...it can still be out-performed by iPhone 4S (& 4) and i'm not talking about the dumb benchmark tests...i'm talking real world, everyday use tasks. coming from my iPhone 4S to the S3 the only thing i was say was lacking was GPS and 4G on my iPhone. battery efficiency, call quality, camera/video (about the same for both), navigating thru menus, & yes Siri were all superior in performance to what is offered on my S3. S-Voice is terrible...don't have a need for NFC or facial recognition...its kinda cool to be able to take out my SD card again but *shrugs*...battery life is better than most Androids out there but still not as long as my iPhone. A lot of features on the S3 that are shiny but not necessary (to me at least). HTC? no room to talk about same ol' same ol'...all of their phones have looked the same since the HD2 came to fruition. i'm Motorola'd out as far as Android goes since i've had several. so there you have it, a laundry list of reasons why i prefer iPhone.

Thank god you went to the iPhone, if you think HTC's designs are the same, you deserve to have the iPhone, meanwhile, I'll just chill here with my retina screen S3 with the most amazing OS right now called Android.
We're not mad that apple releases the same phone year after year, but what bugs us is that i$heep continue buying it right up smh

I was expecting something better. But it seems boring. I mean nothing special or new. On a comical note, I think Samsung is gonna sue them for 4G LTE. And the bigger screen.

Nokia’s PureMotion HD+ has a 60Hz refresh rate, making it “blur free” and the fastest display on a phone. Throw in ClearBlack for super saturated colors, 4.5” inches in size and a massive 332ppi that dwarfs the iPhone 5 and we know the winner.

But that didn’t stop Apple from exclaiming, "This is the world's most advanced display and I couldn't be prouder of it."

Sorry, but bulls**t.

I don't know what's worse. iSheeps defending every Apple products to the death. Or extreme fandroids hating on every Apple products to the death. Seriously, it's just soo tiring to see the same thing happening everyday in this website. No wonder it isn't as popular as other tech sites.
