But buddy those are like pretty ordinary stuff what you mentioning here aren't they ? Screen widgets ? That thing you can do with Nokia n900 as well. ( in Nokia n sieries ) and wifi stuff u just need to set it on and let it b then once you revived wifi signal via any router u can select it and log trough it to the Internet !! (with apple)in iPhone also we can move our icons trough the display know.. Not like we wanted lie u mentioned ( but are they important ? ) do not misunderstand Can I ask your age ? Anything else ?? Do you believe that iPhones HDR photos ugly than your nexus ? Or do you believe your nexus holding a dazzle display than iPhone ? Do you believe that your nexus having solid rich quality look than iPhone 4 / 5 ? And do you know that iphone4 used to shoot some shots in the movie call AVENGERS "(the Hollywood blockbuster)(I know u know that ) so buddy think and get the idea which is the best ? -(here I'm not fighting with anyone , just trying to get the best )

If it's so ordinary, why doesn't the iPhone have it?


We're not comparing Nokia here. We're comparing Android, vs iOS. I only gave you the most basic features which is common sense to have, and your iPhone doesn't.

You go think about that.

Cz as smartphones they doesn't deserve it! I didn't compare Nokia with ios and android. I just wanted to prove that widget stuffs that's much of odinary even Nokias old devices too used to do that feature. And you call it that's one of reason to love android @ personally . ( that's y I asked bout ya age ? LOL ) so tell me some of good things more than advance that doesn't have in ios

Those things are very useful, to pretty much anyone. It's always basic features that people look for in their devices, and the iPhone lacks it. Most people DON'T EVEN KNOW that Android offers all this. All they know is the iPhone, that's it. If you watch that YouTube video I replied to you with you'll know exactly what I mean. iSheep. Dr. Android gave a pretty good list of features too that the iPhone doesn't have. But one more thing I'll add, Google Voice Search. Siri is a piece of s**t compared to this. No it doesn't have stupid useless answers telling you it loves you, but it's actually SMART. It talks to you directly telling you what you want to know. Also, almost all the search results from Siri, come from Google, which is ironic. Apple is stupid for trying to beat Google at their own game, search. It will never work.

I'm 25.

if u really want to get the feeling, u have to use an android device for a couple of days. & u will see why those who know both ios & android prefer android.
there are many small details that make use of android so easy & very useful.
next time u go to liberty plaza, go to one of the phone shops, get hold of a sgs3 or the one x or even the sony xperia s, play for a while and see.

C'on buddy .. I have check till sgs2 .. I didn't take a look at sgs3 ( for the real ) but I don't c qualities over iPhone !! I didn't c the super quality display trough sgs (till 2 ) specially the retina display far more better than amoled display.. U can't c the pixels on retina but in amoled u will clearly c the pixels .. So can you tell that sgs2 display better than retina? I don't c that quality yet buddy if I c it I will move to it

thats why i said to check out sgs3 or the one x. they have better screens. and personally are you happy with the 3.5 inch screen of iphone? even the 4" screen of iphone 5 is small if you are used to a larger screen.
you may think the widgets is a basic function. maybe it is but it makes a lot of stuff easier.
and what about not having a micro sd slot? isnt it easier if u cud just take out the sd, insert it to another phone & get the stuff, rather than having to go through a PC?
and when u go out somewhere you have to carry the cable and charger & stuff bcos nothing else would fit the iphone. whereas standard micro usb cables are abundant for android phones.
and dont u think its nicer to have a home screen, where u can see a lot of info, some nice animated live wall paper..etc rather than to have the app dock staring at you all the time?
and what about the conduct of the company? trying to bar the competitors from selling their phones, suing any company who they think is going to be a challenge, extortion of the poor workers at foxconn..etc. ? (i read somewhre that the annual pay of one such worker is less than the price of one iphone) do these things look really acceptable morally?
well...if you dont care about any of these..and..lots of stuff the others pointed out...i guess iphone is the best phone for you..:)

U people asking question from me ? And I'm giving the same with throwing another questions on u guys! Is this necessary ? I do not know man .. Personally I don't like to c ae live wallpapers .. One reason is its like "gode" to me !(LOL) and other thing I think it would kill The battery unnecessarily .. And widgets aren't my things too like I said. It's k just 4 get it . What is your phone ? Sgs3 ? And are you sure that sgs3 and HTC one x having better screens than retina ??

no machan, dont have a smartphone at the moment. cant afford a sgs3 or one x anyway :). but i have seen & operated almost all smartphones. one x and sgs 3 have larger, higher resolution screens. pixel density is around the same as iphone 4s. i prefer larger screens. cant settle for 3.5 inches after using the hd2 :).

No the screen doesn't "look" better, because it's bigger on the SGS III. But being at 4.8 inches, it's pretty damn amazing. The Retina just looks a bit more clear because it's a smaller screen. If you packed those pixels of the SGS III into a 3.5 or 4 inch screen, it'll destroy Retina.

But I agree, it seems like you personally prefer your iPhone, and we prefer our Androids. Let's just stick to that and agree to disagree :)

Buddy !! U almost agree with me that the retina look better than sgs3 and other android !! (so far it is ) but also u mentioning that if sgs3 display pack to the size of 3.5 it will distroy the retina. It can not be right buddy ,,,, cz the displays quality will build by their ppi... So if sgs3 having more than300 of ppi then it will look nice even with 4.8" display.isnt it ? If not it is false bout pixel destiny on sgs3. And I'm 23 !

62. The_Innovation (Posts: 632; Member since: 18 Jul 2012)

I said it looks better because it's smaller. Duh? Did you know the ppi is a little less now on the iPhone 5 because the screen got a little taller? It's how it works for the most part. Just because Apple throws a name like "Retina", don't think they came up with something revolutionary like they claim. Just look at numbers. Like 1136-by-640 at 326 ppi for the iPhone 5. The 4S was 640 x 960 at 330 ppi. My phone has 1280x720 at 316 ppi. So as you can see, and as I said before, the bigger the screen gets, the more the ppi falls.

But here's something revolutionary for you. The Sony Xperia SL has 1280x720, at 342 ppi! That my friend, destroys the iPhone "Retina", by a huge margin. So the iPhone isn't the "best" display. There's nothing to agree with you on. Know the facts, then say such things.

Man, I just don't care anymore lol. Not going to convince you of anything.

dear jshan
im 13 (dont make fun of that) i love smartphones at first my uncle got an iphone 3gs i played with it every time i get to and of course i ws saving up my money to buy one then the 4 came out and i was pissing my pants then the 4s came out then GOOGLED the price for it and holy sh** ฿20000 -฿25000 (i was in thailand), i moved to New zealand later on and it was $1000 or more there, then my friend bought a galaxy mini i played with it and fell in love with android and found out that u can get better phones for a cheaper price, so my personal xperiance is that android is much better and not just the widgets, hav u heard of the whatsapp app? on IOS: $0.99 on Android: FREE!!!!!! so conclusion I like android better and u should give it a try.

Buddy here is 3 number of people.. U , that kid and our inovation guy.. :) its not fair to make decision like that. The favour will depend on vivid reasons.. That kid mainly talking bout the expensiveness of iPhone ? And inovation talking bout display size , And widgets ...u talking bout what ? ( can't remember ) but machnag my prefer is uncommon , the build quality and the brand .. So I think I'm on my correct path ... But I will change to any other if anything here to beat apple on the way that I can feel it clearly.

Hey little buddy !! What is your current phone ? Didn't you go for iPhone 4 ? 4s ? I'm still using my iPhone 4 , now it's almost 2 years and 2 days :) !! But u believe me it's look like a brand new phone !! Not even single scratch. Cz of that sapphire like glass.. And no any repairs.. (even it has fell like 6 , 7 times or more / also at once it fell to complete water bulk ) but it didn't get system fail. ( and some of my friends are using sgs phones, not even old like one year but they are almost making system failures... ) so how can I trust android and the samsung also ... ?? Its fine buddy will c when I'm gonna happy with android !! :) and to all u, My country man &innovation I'm not arguing with any of you... Just we are just talking bout em... Right? Are we good ?

yep..no issue with me :)..but i still suggest you use a high end android device for some time & see. if thats not practical have a look at some of the video reviews here at PA. i suggest you have a look at the motorola droid razr review, one of my favourites .

Compare to the screen display, processor, and build quality...
You know who is the winner :)

i like this phone because of it's specs but judging from the video, it looks like samsung galaxy s 2 (design). I hope once it is launch few days from now, it has really a beastly specs and hopefully a better design.
