    Dropbox works without data? Didn't know that. Even so that seems a poor alternative to having proper shortcuts on the homescreen.

    If this was an Android issue, you would be hailing it as failure on a massive scale. And I never claimed it as anything other than my opinion.

    Not at all. Having to go into an app instead of being able to put it on a homescreen is not an issue. Its just different.

    I dunno, going to an app and going through a bunch of folders to find what you want (or keeping it all in one big folder and scrolling through endless crap) seems more time consuming than just tapping on a home screen icon. If you use it a lot, it could get really annoying.

    It could get annoying. But so could having your screen covered with shortcuts to documents. Its all in what you need.

    Well about 5 posts ago u said the galaxy s3 is better than the iPhone 5 in every aspect other than battery life and eco system. I don't ignore benefits of Android it can do a whole lot more than iOS for sure I own and use a galaxy note on a regular basis. But when people are complaining o wow look at the minimal upgrades bla bla bla like android doesn't do the same thing? Razr, razr maxx,razr HD. Wow ya those all must be huge upgrades. O wait they are the same minimal upgrades that u guys are praising on android and and downplaying on iOS. The iPhone does a lot of things right and just because u don't like the os doesn't mean the phone is mere crap compared to most high end android phones out there. Just because u don't like a 4 inches screen doesn't mean the iPhone doesn't have one of if not the best screens available. Same for quality/fit finish of the phone. Great camera great hardware.I can admit those things and still say that iOS isn't for me. I can also admit android flaws when I see them. A big one for me is battery life and smoothness of the device. Minus the nexus on 4.1 because that really does close the gap to ios in my opinion

    Except we get those kind of updates every few months rather than once a year. The iPhone is falling behind. You can guarandamntee than by January every new Android handset coming out will have definitively better hardware than the iPhone5. Also, don't you guys find it suspicious that Apple has refused to release the actual specs of the CPU of the i5 even when it's being sold on shelves? I'm betting it's inferior to the current Android flagships and they didn't want to draw attention to it.

    Well if those geekbench benchmark tests are real then that says something about the CPU as it got better than any phone one there. But who knows if they are real and how it will translate in to real world performance which is what matters. If a phone has 512mb of ram and a single core 500mhz processor but performs better than the new dual core 1ghz with 1gb of ram then I'd be getter the single core.

    Links? I really can't think of any reason Apple wouldn't release their CPU specs if they were better than the Android flagships, it would be another great advertising point.

    theres benchmarks posted that favour the s3 or the ip5.. wait till AC get hold of one and run sum proper tests against s3 running Jellybean
    itl probably be close and well done to apple.
    i still prefer android and a larger screen

    Nah, it needs to be a local thing. My wife for example has a PDF of her bus schedule as a shortcut on her Atrix and a shortcut to a picture that she took of her diet/nutrition paper. JHBthree was saying that a lot of these things we think are not possible are actually possible through the use of apps and saying I was spreading misinformation, so I would like to know how to do this on an iPhone. I was not calling you out as having claimed this, just figured one of you might be able to explain how it's done.


    Rev.
    Glad this thread turned up something useful. How is this done? I have been trying to do this for months. Anycut app? I havent looked into it more to see.

    And about the iPhone 5 benchmarks......its not just the cpu that gets it those scores. Apple may have optimized the memory on the phone or be using the latest memory specs. Good job iPhone 5 on the benchmarks tho. I stopped being a benchmark fiend when the GS1 and Droid X1 came out. The GS1 had the better specs...but the Droid X1 had the better benchmarks out the box. Samsung handicapped the GS1 performance with the file system. So I do agree somewhat thats specs aren't everything. WP, the iPhone and the GS1 proves that specs arent everything. I just dont agree that specs dont matter as a whole.

    Thats another reason why I dropped out of the specs debate in that other iPhone 5 thread....lol. That and Ry made a good point about Windows OS requirements.

    Because apple doesn't care about releasing their Specs. It is not relevant for them.

    You should read anandtechs analysis of the chip. It breaks down why it is better than most everything out there, and how it does it.

    This is another thing that I will agree with JHB on.....the iPod Nano, Nokia post was clever....lol.

    I have no problem giving Apple props, credit .........where its due. I just dont get the high pedestal it gets put on.

    Apple actually spends less on R&D than pretty much every other tech company.
