    Person typing in red here. I have both an old car that has metal bumpers and a new car that has plastic bumpers: I would trust my life more in my plastic bumper car any day.

    Trust me I love old cars ( I have 3 of them).

    My point exactly. People don't care because it doesn't matter. The device is smooth. If the device was laggy people might care more when picking a phone.

    Indeed. People wouldn't love the iPhone as much as they do if it didn't work well and work smoothly. But it does, and yet it does all that without having amazing specs. I've seen how fast the iPhone 5 can switch between apps or open new ones, and I would never guess that it doesn't have top of the line internal hardware (although it is arguable that it does indeed) if I didn't know better.

    Now: what are we arguing about again? ;-)

    How the iPhone is the only high end smartphone that is small. I argued that it's internals aren't very high end for an android device besides the screen and the processor (to an extent)

    But yet we have a spec race in the big device consumers market. So that doesn't count?

    The only real competition that Apple has in small form factor, AFAIK, is from Sony Xperia. And if you are going to pay $800 for the SX SO-05D, you might as well get the iPhone 5 -- Sony Xperia SX SO-05D availability? - xda-developers

    I use the Xperia Ray which is smaller than all the iPhones, but have to compromise by only getting 2G on T-Mobile and slower speeds. The Ray is now 2 years old, but can be had for $250 off ebay.

    after using the note 2 for 2 weeks, i dont think i would ever want to go to a smaller screen. when i pick up my ipod it seems so tiny in comparison. everything is much easier to see on a big screen
