When I get to a computer I can link you to articles that call out the benchmarks which claim the iPhone 5 wins. Or I might not. I'm still recovering from launch weekend.

The iPhone 5 is a nice phone, but some things which should be simple are ridiculously complicated. For instance, there is no way to manually push photos directly to icloud from an iPhone or iPad.

What up Sniggly,

Your right.... Another feature that the iOS lacks, and I wish it had, is seperate mail icons for each of my mail accounts... or capability to allow a different notification tone for the mail accounts

I hate that iOS lacks in many areas... I wish iOS would addapt may of the feature that Blackberry used to have. That would be awesome!

Well, there is still the 20 million units in 100 days metric set by Sammy for the GS III. I wonder if the iP5 is going to beat that one?

Ip4s did 37,000,000 in less than 100 days. Wonder if gs3 will beat that.

You care about your phone more than the life of the kid who made it for you. Good luck with karma in your life.

I still have the old iPhone 4. It's a good device and I might upgrade to the iPhone5 all depending on reviews and seeing it myself. I can't help feel ashamed that I'd be in the same grouping as some of these Apple fanatics though!

This past weekend during football Sunday, I saw those Samsung commercials & loved that they were sticking it to Apple. My wife couldn't help laugh because she said & I quote "That is so true it's like those people are brainwashed." This is from a person who trust me with tech & is not into the Apple VS Android mess.

2010 technology?? Wow then all of the Android devices must be stuck in 2009. It crushed Android in speed tests, has earpods which are a significant improvement, has Siri which really has no competitors, has nearly a million apps, oh and you can update the OS often.

My Android was supposed to get ICS but it probably wont. Android uses imitation apps to try to compare to apple, not to mention Android crashes so damn much.

I must say though, anyone getting that excited for a phone needs a life

Synot check the articles in Phonearena. They did speed tests and the iPhone 5 hammered the GS3 :)

Fandroids can't admit when they've been beat. There will always be the GS4 :-D

They each have their strengths. I still don't think anyone's come close to the enterprise integration that BB has/had, though I know Microsoft is working on it

Dude seriously??
I don't understand why you hate RIM so much
You feel shame to stay at bb nation... In the mean time we feel that your country is awesome!!! You can't find a country to be so unique like yours...

At least the country does not load too much ifans :) I admit that ifans is annoying >.
