...and a wave of Hipsters that think they aren't Hipsters all called him a "Fool!" and "explained" how S3 is the greatest thing on the planet, and not a slightly upgraded phone from its last iteration, just like the iPhones.

Phone elitest have no life and constantly obsess over someone has likes something different or popular and spew hate. Mommy must've not given them much attention.

I have an Iphone and they definitely don't. I wan't to make the switch but i've bought so many apps n shizz over the years I'm kinda locked in.

Compared to everything that came out this year, I'm having a reeeeeally hard time seeing what the iPhone 5 did so above and beyond that makes it gadget I'd the year. It doesn't even do anything above and beyond the last model.

No, they really don't. Not anymore.

I think S3 should be Gadget of year. Samsung is more inovative then Apple

R6ex2052d ago

Galaxy Note 2 more like it.

edward32222051d ago

But note 2 was just released u cant compare it with iPhone 5

Neither should get it then . The s3 is basically a more powerful s2 with a few fancy toys .

I'm amazed how you guys kept piling up sh*t over apple and its iphones and ipad , deservingly so ... then suddenly samsung get free passes

The s2 was on par with phone of when it came out, and the s3 was above par of other phones when it came out. Heck the iphone 5 got features we had for a year in a half. NFC? Still don't have it LTE? Just got it this year. 4 in screen? we are moving on to 5 in screen. Price? more expensive than phones that have those features that the iphone doesn't have. Apple hasn't shocked the world steve jobs used to. The only thing iphone has on androids anymore is the eco system.

So what is gonna happen when the iPhone gets to a 5 in. screen?? lol U think Samsung will go up to 6"?? No.

All of these phones are getting to the point of diminishing returns when it comes to specs. You can only use so much specs on a phone.

Once we get to the point where specs are about maxed out, it will all come down to the "experience" you get with the phone. That's actually what matters to me right now.

I could care less if the Galaxy S4 came out next year with 16GB of RAM and 500GB of Solid State Storage. It's all about "will the specs be enough for the average user?" If the answer to that question is a "yes" then that is plenty. The iPhone 5 is a very well put together phone and has plenty of specs to do anything most people need it to.

"The s2 was on par with phone of when it came out, and the s3 was above par of other phones when it came out."

Not at all . S3 was a rinse and repeat . Same thing more powerful .

If you guys are going to call apple names , again DESERVINGLY so , and make funs of apple fanboys following everything like the gospel ... then take a cold look hard at yourselves , and your android religions .

That's all i'm saying
