I disagree, it's the only way to get Apple in there twice, albeit with the same model. Otherwise, the utter disgrace of just having ONE teanie-tiny little ole' phone in the top ten, especially when Samsung has FOUR in the top ten and HTC has THREE; all different models (not colors). The phone that probably occupies the tenth spot legitimately is the DROID RAZR/MAXX. In support of this article I am going to paint my white iPhone 4 black just so that I can say that I have TWO iPhones. Then, I'll high-gloss shellac and say I have THREE iPhones and thrice the validation.

They are learning how to feed the hype via ads and events...I hope next iPhone is insane so sammy calms down with prices.

If an ugly phone like SGSIII TOPS the chart surpassing iPhone then iPhone surely suks. I

In the end, all that matter is that you are contented with your device. If you like that iPhone whatever model that happens to be..good for you but you have no rights to interfere with the preference of others. Not all of us have the same taste and you cannot say that your choce of iPhone is good for others because that is only in your opinion and not the others.

Then maybe you should tell the Apple haters above me. Because I can make a newspaper on how much I hate Android. Obviously if someone wants to come in and buy a phone from me and they have it picked out, its theirs, but if people ask me I am giving my dead honest opinion. And I'm sure the people above me will get fed up with Android eventually and consider the iPhone. I couldn't be happier with my iPhone, so no one should be bashing anyone.

Oh in fact most of them are fanboy haters.
Actually poor you. Your level is pretty low compared to taco.

Exactly! And that works both ways because many of the Android guys on this site behave just like some of the over the top iPhone folks!

Go SGSIII, your so much popular now imagine almost a week from the day it was sold but the response was so amazing....
18. Dj21o (Posts: 437; Member since: 19 May 2011)
Lol no. Apple makes a great product and people don't see it because of these Android lovers on here.

DJ21o you've lost.....hahaha, hater going to hell...

Actually, I'm pretty firm in my beliefs (not phone operating systems) LOL. You are dumb.

He may be a hater, but you are the worst, a TRAITOR!!! Idiots support American corporations. Hope we can take all of you and ship you to S. Korea.

You do realize that Samsung has quite a few american employees right. Did you know that they have factories in the US? Retail employees? training staff? PR peeps? Quite a few thousand.
54. Dj21o (Posts: 437; Member since: 19 May 2011)
Lol nice. I actually don't mind Android, I just wanted to see how much of a reaction I could get out of people. Phone arena actually is one of the worst for arguments between Apple and Android. I think in such articles that can spur a little bit of hate should just eliminate comments altogether. I am really not biased at all. I am trying out the iPhone though and seeing what I like best.Ive rooted all of my phones and actually have been very impressed, and I'm still debating whether or not to JB my iPhone.
And believe it or not, there are A LOT of products over areas that are sold in the US, not just smart phones. So keep that in mind when you buy anything. Didn't mean to be a weiner toanyone today lol.

The iPhone colors were either separated to show two iPhones or because the two combined are bigger than the GSIII and PA is trying to hype up Samsung. Either way what does color have to do with anything?

I think what you actually mean is you own both SGSII & iPhone store display models with printed cardboard inside the screen.

I'm curious.. what is it you hate about Android so much?
Neither phone is perfect to be sure.. both with their quirks and issues, but I really see hating either to such a degree you profess.
Now.. I'm an Android fan.. and I hate Apple.. I have respect for the iPhone and don't begrudge the people who enjoy it.. just not for me and I really abhor Apple's corporate practices.

IOS actually has the most crashes...source PA. If battery life was a concern of yours why didn't you mention the razor maxx..I'm assuming you didn't because its not on sprint. Most high-end androids, saving sprints evo LTE, have replaceable batteries...effectively doubling their power output. I am also guessing you didn't kill a lot of apps running in the background as you are complaining about crashes and battery time. Google play will likely pass the app store in total apps this year and I bet you can't name an app in the app store that doesn't exist in the Google play store or at least a similar app that is on par with the iOS version. IOS should have plenty of battery power since it is merely 4x4 rows of icons without true 4g or LTE connectivity. So, since you don't need customisation or high data speeds on that truly unlimited, no throttling network of yours, then the iPhone is indeed for you. So, why limit your iPhone?????...when the iPhone itself is limited....and that's just the way you like it.

So, the question is:
Since the 2nd place 4s doesn't say white, is it all models of the IP4s, or only the white? If it is only the white, what is wrong with iPhone users, buying white more than black. The Black looks soooooo much nicer. White makes things look cheap.
Either way, it makes no sense to break it out that way. White or black, it's still the same phone.

dang, those Apple fanboys are really hittin the S3 hard with their nonsense and bs, little afraid out there boys? i refer to you as boys because you just accuse Android of copying, which is elementary school material, while in all reality you are truly and utterly clueless about anything. The US version is still dual core because the 4G LTE frequencies aren't supported by current quad core chips. Your beloved iphone 5/ "The New iphone" will also have a dual core. the day after the 4S released i downloaded an app in the app market to do the exact same thing. Nothing "revolutionary" about Siri. how's your tiny screen treatin ya? Probably well because of your tiny hands because you are boys. btw, my 4G LTE Droid Charge is over 10X faster than your iphone's data speed, and yes, it is a big difference. You can tell Apple is gettin frightened by Android because they are doing everything in their power to sabotage new Androids. Hence the suing of HTC because they made their phone a rectangle, the best design to any phone. Come at me bro, i'll put your iphone "facts" to rest in an instant.
