I wonder how long before the parodies of the iP5 ads start? This is going to be a fun 4th quarter!

There are enough on youtube already. Each one mocking the iPhone 5 in its own way.

So the Applephiles known to overpaid for old technology just to be hip are left to battle with parodies instead of facts. That's so sad.

This war between members loyal to each OS is startling at best. I am curious as to whether things will ever change.

Why would they compare those two phones I do not even know.
How can you compare a super phone with well just a phone IPHONE
I have the galaxy S3 and man I don't think the iphone7 will have these features. The next big thing is already here. Apple said it themselves "THE BIGGEST THING TO HAPPEN TO IPHONE SINCE THE IPHONE".

Nice self promotion. Without going too much into detail, fyi: tests by reviewers said that S Voice actually works better than Siri, not the other way around.

Hilarious how the parody makers obviously had no clue what they were talking about. The iPhone 5 costs even less to make than the 4S, at least in parts. The feature bulls**t was already covered by others.

Both iFans and Android fans wake up. What sort of s... you talking about when you say iPhone is good only in design.

What design? That squared brick? With a big physical home button at the bottom of the screen?
The phones are coming without any physical buttons and edge to edge screen.
For me Nokia lumia was great design.
Even S2 nice slim phone with big screen and minimum of a bezel.
But never iPhone.

Now I know why they say love is blind.
Good luck with having the headset connector way below.

Btw. Don't you Android fans still get it that you basically trying to have fight here with 12 years old kids?

Why would I be wasting my time for that?

all these ads (if you call the apple's supporters' as ads) is just a free promo for the iphone 5. seriously apple should thank samsung for including the iphone on the latter's own print ad. it's not everyday that a product is being promoted for free by it's own competitor.

Of course you value very much free upgrades of your ios when you are used to pay for everything. Adaptor, new cables, accessories....
When I bought phone (not iPhone) all the accessories and adaptors came with a box. So for me free updates are something I don't even think about.

Not sure if people hate iPhone 'cause they are sick of Apple's suing antics or 'cause they don't really like iPhone.

Also do people hate the iOS compared to Android or the phone build too?

Personally i don't like anything that restricts my freedom and forces me to do certain things a particular way (how to hold a phone/tab for example, forces me to pay huge preimium between 16/32/64 GB models and doesn't allow me a sdcard, forces me to put my data hostage over cloud for some corporation to charge ransome to keep the data active or i lose it in case i don;t pay the recurring ransom ... and so on )

Some of the iP5's features are already sported by GSII.. Nothing's really new about the iPhone but the materials.

Ok so how does Aluminium on back cover help? I expect an intelligent answer and not some stupid rhetoric ... why did Apple has it's head up @rs3 for all these years if Aluminium is/was so good ...

Not sure why they chose aluminium, probably to look like a Mac Book. Probably the big reason why the iPhone 5 still does not have NFC.Metal and NFC do not mix.
