The point is that this concept of the iPhone outperforming its competition will probably last a lot longer than its actual reign.

It's so funny to see android fanboys trying to see reasons "what happens, why it happens" :)) Don't worry guys, samsung still have quad core and more ram's :))

you just kidding me. how come dual core 1Ghz can defeat quad core 1.5Ghz? that's the fact, wake up, guys. a junk os is an os which has performance issue, slow and need big processor speed. same like iphone 5, win phone 8 does not need quadcore processor yet. only android need quad core processors to match iphone 5 and wp8 with dual core. now, android deviceS need octacore to beat processor A6

Nobody uses this test on android

And you must pay for it

we don't need to talk too much about specs & benchmarks, what consumers need is the usability & real life performance. personally for me, android gives me much more freedom than iOS & WP.

we are talking about ARMv7 here, what about the quad core krait ? hardware nowadays grow very quickly & in 3 to 6 months, iPhone 5 & s3's hardware will probably considered as normal.

yes, i know samsung uses plastic for their products. but let's think this way, you drop your s3, the plastic back shattered, pop it out, change into a new one & there you go. iphone 5 or even ipad on the other hand, drop it & you might regret it until you change into a new one

and this matters because... its like comparing a windows pc vs a linux pc to many different variables to make it fair. and a benchmark dont mean s**t anyway. Benchmarks are easily manipulated... anyone that is a pc gamer remmebers the time when nvidia used to optimize there drivers so they gave off false readings back in the day.....

They say Apple doesn't rely on specs, just the user experience. Reading the iPhone5 articles, you'd never come to that conclusion. I think there's too many people who just can't come to grips that no matter what you buy, there's always going to be something better in one aspect or another. Get over it, let it go, and move one, there's more to life. Technology is in a constant state of improvement, until that changes, one phone will always be better than another, until the new one comes out.
