are you sure you could use it on sprint?

I mean, bought directly from Google play store, and not from sprint. I ask this because I'm sure you won't be able to buy the phone directly from sprint for anywhere near $350

Sprint's HTC One comes with a SIM card. I'm not positive, but there's probably a way you could get one from Sprint. Y'know, if you begged or something.

Even though it doesn't have the quadcore processor and the 2 gb ram, Iphone is a smooth device.

1,000,000+ pixels less at a time.

(Although I'm not positive these tests take pixel-count into consideration or not.)

Boosted results. You can pretty much look at the G2 for actual benchmark scores. Same exact hardware and also has a bloated version of Android as well.

What makes you so sure Apple doesn't boost their scores?

You use the same exact argument without knowing what Apple does. Typical.
