    Oh boy is right, the iphone 5 is not out yet and we still dont have all the final details of ios6. Yes the ios is becoming stagnant and going the way of rim with os 5,6,7. However, the hardware of the iphone 5 might make the difference and gain back some market share for apple camp. Lets wait till we know what apple is packing. As of right now the gsiii is king compared to iphone4s and i can argue that the gnex running jelly bean is too. Lets wait and see.

    Gain back market share? Do some research, as Apple's marketshare is increasing while Android is decreasing.
    GS3 king? Just an opinion. IOS going the way of RIM? LOL!
    I have had Android since the original Droid, and recently switched to a 4S. I can say for myself, and probably 95% of users, that the iPhone does what we need it to do. I know that there are techies that love to tinker, and maybe Android is best for them, but 95% doesn't "tinker".
    Maybe with "Project Butter" Android will be as smooth as IOS, but then again, Jelly Bean will be a LONG time coming to a lot of phones, if ever. That is a shame, as Android is a great system, and users deserve to get the updates in a timely manner.
    Lastly, NO Android phone has a camera comparable to an iPhone, IMHO. Android manufacturers need to "step it up" in the camera department.
    I am not bashing Android, as I still have an Incredible 2 as a backup, and may activate it every now and then just to play with it, but as far as a stable platform for the 95% of smartphone users, IOS is the way to go. Just my $.02.

    And I think that we should buy American, rather than a bunch of cheap Korean knock-offs!
    Who is supplying some of the chips in the iPhone? Samsung

    Where will the iPhone most likely be assembled? China

    Just thought you may want to consider these items. I am Korean-American born/raised and proud of it.
    The gent/lady above said it correctly.

    Also, regarding Apple, the company blossoms on hype which it has in spades. That and putting out a solid product with excellent customer service. At this point, they could release a phone that is shaped as a coil of poo and it would still be eaten up by the masses. I mean, the phone release announcement hasn't been officially made and the media is heralding it as the biggest tech release in the universe.

    The following video clip MAY offend some, but I find it humourous and you don't need to click it, but this is what Apple has as a following

    PS I still love my Apple products, so take my post with a grain of salt.

    that could only end badly!!
    Well, I used to make crappy little text games using IF ERRORLEVEL and the CHOICE command, and then I learnt some stuff to do with text and border colours there was another EXE that could do clever things to the screen such as give it a coloured border, and stuff like that, but for the life of me I forget the name of that EXE, i bought a book about it. But this was sooo long ago!
    Infact the best thing i ever did to autoexec.bat was just before i left primary school (i was 10! ) and i left this on tthe machine:

    CLS
    ECHO THIS IS THE MILLENNIUM BUG. DO NOT PRESS ANYTHING OR EVERYTHING WILL BE DELETED
    PAUSE ;this makes "Press Any Key To Continue" appear
    CLS

    I got told a few years later that they diddn't dare network the machine up because of that message hahaha!!
    Coupled with the day I found all the Microsoft Music WAVs in the program files folder, and put the Electric Guitar sample as the start up sound, and cranked the volume before going home....good times.

    As far as apple being an American company, sure it is at the head.

    But you have to look deeper to see that all of their devices are made in China or surrounding countries, mostly at Foxconn.

    Any company can have products made there to apple's specs, but most companies don't want to pay $1500 for a midrange laptop with an aluminum case. My Dell that I bought for $500 2 years ago had twice the specs of a comparable MacBook at the time. I have had apple products before. A MacBook and 3 iPhones (3g, 3gs and a 4), and I still use an apple router for my home network.

    Will I buy from them again? No. That is not hate, just an understanding that I don't like to be dictated to as to what is good enough for me by a company.

    As for the iPhone 5 being better than the SIII, I don't think it will be, but that is a question that you will get different responses from all that are asked. As stated previously, some people don't care about the specs as long as it does what they want it to do when they tap an icon. Also there are the people that have their whole lifestyle tied to a specific app store.

    So when the question is asked, is the SIII better than the iPhone 5? You also have to ask yourself the question, at what? Pure processing power, data handling, media consumption, customization etc.

    doesnt most of that profit go to major shareholders who probably dont pay tax in US and probably spend most of it on imported goods?

    Well, that Korean company he mentioned is building a 4 billion dollar factory in Austin Texas (using american workers) which will employ American workers to build parts for Apple

    In other words, ignore the troll. They call it a global economy because it's global.

    I agree, a great phone can be made by multiple companies. Sometimes we forget, we all love TECH!

    Seriously who cares about hypothetical devices that haven't come out yet? Depending on the user buy a phone that does what you need. The og evo to this day is 2 yrs old and honestly can do about the same thing that my new evo does. Yes its a hair slower. Yes the screen is a bit worse etc but this fascination with should I wait and which is better gets rediculous. That's the problem people are greedy and want to feel they have the best.

    I think iPhone 5 will beat GS3 for sure. I'm talking about this from the hardware+software perspective, not how well will it sell. Reason? The separating months between the release of gs3 and iphone 5 (rumored to be some time in Sept this year). GS3 and all other major android phones are already available in the market.

    Apple now gets to study, pinpoint their weaknesses, and tweak iPhone 5, so that when iPhone 5 is well positioned to compete with GS3 and next year's android phones.

    If iPhone 5 does not beat GS3 this time, it certainly indicates quality change in Apple's management after Steve Jobs left.

    No. I feel like they could match it hardware-wise. I have not tried iOS since 5.0.1 so I have no idea what iOS6 will be.

    Lets just say they will both be great phones for the users.

    Apple has something like 1,000 chip design engineers. They designed the chip and Samsung manufactures it.
    iPhones are assembled in China and Brazil.

    Who is supplying some of the chips in the iPhone? Samsung

    Where will the iPhone most likely be assembled? China

    iPhone 5 hardware and iOS 6 features were set in stone long before the G 3 was released. We haven't seen all of those feature either because not all are in the iOS 6 beta's.
    The iPhone 5 will do quite well obviously.
    I seriously doubt Apple sees much of anything in the G 3 they want to copy and would probably find it amusing anyone thinks they do. No not notifications. Pull down menu notifications were on mobile devices long before Android or iPhones.
    I have a 4s and a G3 and will have an iPhone 5 on release day btw.

    These topics are pointless. Why? Well, whether iPhone is inferior or not, people will continue to buy it and will continue to buy Samsung products due to preference. I bought the galaxy s3, because I liked its predecessor and I like android platform over ios. Guess what? Some people prefer ios over android, and that is not going to change.

    In what ways does the iPhone 5 fall short? For that matter, how does the 4S fall short of the GSIII?


    Sent from my iPhone 4S using Tapatalk
    The 4s falls short in almost every category in terms of specs. I'd certainly expect the 5 to at least match the gs3 in these aspects if not better it.

    The industrial design and build quality will almost certainly be top notch on the new iPhone. They will use what will most likely be the fastest mobile GPU in any phone, which will make gaming on it a beast. Battery life will probably stay the same as the 4S (Apple hates making a sacrifice in this area), and if not won't be significantly worse.

    The thing I'm most interested in is the screen. It almost certainly WON'T be 720p, but some one-off Apple resolution. If they do that IMHO they are doing a disservice to everybody that enjoys watching movies on their phone. 720p is a standard resolution across pretty much all major media formats, and Apple just won't go with it. If that's the case then they are already far behind the S3 and other Android phones in this area.

    From what I've read the screen is still going to be significantly smaller on the iphone 5. If true then iphone 5 is really missing the mark. I think it's obvious from looking at the sales of the top 10 phones that people want bigger screens. When I see an iphone anymore they look dinky to me. And if the iphone 5 still requires itunes then guess what, it's still going to suck. Even people with iphones hate itunes.

    well the tv was invented in scotland
    Actually, not quite. Television can be traced back to the discovery of the photoconductivity of the element selenium by Willoughby Smith in 1873, the invention of a scanning disk by Paul Gottlieb Nipkow (German) in 1884 and John Logie Baird's (American) innovation of broadcasting televised moving images in 1926.

    The Scotsman you're talking about was John Logie Baird. He gave the first public demonstration of televised silhouette images, at Selfridge's Department Store in London. He didn't actually invent anything.

    Germans and Americans have pretty much invented everything.

    Actually, it's probably one of the huge monopolies from back in the 50's, 60's, and 70's. Think about Standard Oil. HUGE.
