The iPhone 5 might look like this when held

0. phoneArena 08 Aug 2012, 09:43 posted on

Chances are that the iPhone 5 will be taller than the current model, but how exactly will it look like when you're holding it? Well, here are several renders of the next iPhone that can answer that question with decent accuracy, as long as the device's rumored design and dimensions turn out to be true...

Android really can't do anything I can't do on iPhone

Not necessarily....People just want something that works. Android is known for having major lag. If Google can get rid of the lag issues and beef up the security issues, then Android would be a strong contender. Right now they suck!!!

You kidding? It has an app that can build you an island, then it turns into a jet and flys you there.

Can you switch WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth, Sync and Brightness right from the homescreen on iOS? No. You have to open the settings app and scroll through menus which is very impractical if you're in a rush.

I know it takes me an extra 2 seconds. You must be very busy that you can't spare 2 seconds.

Guess what my battery lasts all day with wifi on, Bluetooth on and gps on. It's only android you have to constantly toggle to get every last bit of battery life out.

i addressed what people want from iOS and Android has come far, lag is really not a problem now, it really hasn't been for a while from most high-end devices and besides iPhones aren't lag free. i've seen it myself. i have a friend that's just gone from a 4S to an SIII and a Nexus 7 and hasn't looked back.

same thing goes for the iPhone, the only differentiating factor is the lack of advanced Network Technology from the iPhone, something i'm sure it's about to get a taste of.

lol u mad? cause ur argument is skyrocketing. dude why not take 2 seconds off this little website and maybe ur your brain will have more battery life at the end of the day.

"basically an app launcher. There is no flexibility. On Android, you can have whatever you want. Widgets are not gimmicks, they function and provide quick information so the user doesn't have to go to the app and open it unlike iOS which is simply an app launcher. Static icons with no flexibility." - hes right, now go act in denial somewhere else.

I'm sure there are other websites that could use a good laugh at you.

I'm talking about the homescreen / icons, nothing else. I'm not talking about iOS as a whole.

And @taco50 'it's only android

And @taco50 'It's only android you have to constantly toggle to get every last bit of battery life out'....are you stupid? Android is on a wide range of devices so you can't make such a general statement and you know that. Pathetic statement.

My droid 3 is more than a year old now, its running an ICS build, and it hasnt lagged or seemed bogged down by anything. just saying.

And also to comment on the actual article. The Iphone 4/4s was a sexy looking phone. Stretched out, not so much. The first couple times i saw stretched out mock-ups i was hoping it wouldnt be true, but since no other styling has been "leaked" I'm pretty sure this'll be the final look of it, which is kinda a bummer.

You don't get what I meant of launching apps. There's no need for me to explain farther coz your brain to dumb to understand. It's already too occupied by apple's closed system, your brain obviously affected now.

Seems nothing special to you but maybe next year apple will include it in iOS7, then you will say widgets in iOS better than android, right itaco50??!!

Have you seen videos reviews of any high-end Android smartphones since mid-2011? Hardly any lag, if at all. Plus with the newer phones coming out; GS3, One X (S), Atrix HD, Razr HD (soon), there isn't any lag at all.

Droid Razr MAXX lasted over 14 hours streaming media over WiFi and the iPhone 4S lasted close to 6.

Anything else you want me to prove you wrong in?

Let me be helpful by answering what i can do and will use right out of the box with my att service on the galaxy nexus
1. Live Wallpapers
2. Tether Wirelessly without a fee from carrier.
3. Free App with existing Gmail account that right no credit card. my god no credit card wow that alone kills apple iOS.
4. Share Contact with NFC enable phones. what i can really do that awesome XD.
Share apps using NFC Phones. e.g Galaxy Nexus , SGS3, Asus Nexus 7, Etc.
5. Voice Guided navigation. which has been on Android for a while now.
Send text by voice using google voice. has also been added to stock android and is update independently like google maps/navigation.
I could probably go on but you get what i mean.

ps. i can't wait till next nexus series is release i hope JB 4.1.5 or something keeps adding features.

i feel like most people like you don't even try a decent android phone and have no personal experience. therefore post either out of strong support for a company, or just for the hell of it i can't tell but at-least with your user name i'm inclined to believe it is because you love apple. could be wrong but how could you even choose a name like that it the same as some one choosing apple sucks. see i just don't get it but eh what ever....

your partially write but not 100. when you have a widget that controls functions with out leaving the main screen its a bit different. For example I have google music running i added the widget and want to change track pause or play or like. that just one example i used sms apps that let me reply right from the widget which is great and make it a bit faster not that popup reply isn't good but if you can swipe through different conversations thought the widget it is much faster.

What do i know right I only fix Apple iPhone's And different Android Phones from Samsung, HTC, Motorola, and computers/notebooks with Windows, Mac and Linux. (Already know not so relevant just thought would let you know)

have you not seen project butter on android 4.1 jellybean. and you can't really use the whole lag thing because ios force closes alot more often than andoridhttp://phandroid.com/2012/02/03/android-vs-ios-which-is-really-more-stable-new-data-may-surprise-you/
and the lag can be down to a bad install of an update which can easily fixed

i beg to differ have you seen the motorola razr maxx with its 3300 mah battery which annihilated the iphone 4s
http://blog.gsmarena.com/samsung-galaxy-ace-duos-s6802-battery-test-concludes-the-results-are-here/ although this is for a samsung galaxy ace duos if you expand the tabs it show every device tested by gsmarena which includes the galaxy s3, note and alot of other devices.
and yes we use the power widgets because it saves us time that can be spent doing other activities like going outside, running, using the internet without having to enter the settings menu

Android can connect to a 4G data stream. Good luck with your 3G phone.

Now that's a real widget the rest still have to b touched to receive more info. Ios6 does need widgets I admit that but essentially there the same thing. App launchers. Do u agree?
