Iphone vs any individual Android phone...no contest.

iPhone vs all all Android phones combined the last two quarters...no contest.

IPhone vs. some number that no one can agree on: http://tech.fortune.cnn.com/2012/04/...es-than-apple/...Samsung "may" have won.

Not as cut and dry as you think it is, pal.

Seems that previous leaked images quite accurate, and although it's packed with much features, the design is unusually ugly for a flagship smartphone. Honestly I like S2 or Note's design much more compared to this bizzare looking S3, pretty much resembles an HTC. What were they thinking. Wanna get another sue??

Well then iPhone still keep the crown for having the best design for me. Seems like I have to wait for another decent Android phone.

To think the galaxy note, made this phone look small! Man, i have never seen one of these oversized phones in the wild, and i know why.

My phone has never timed out and gone to sleep while I was reading a single page, it's a phone, how long does it take to read everything displayed on a small screen?

My phone is set to autolock in two minutes, and if I don't touch the phone screen for longer than two minutes, then I'm probably not using it at the time.
thats like saying siri is useless, i could just type it myself

I can't believe you're still saying this. Oh wait, yes I can.
Here's a screenshot from another thread in which you said similar things to what you're saying now. I responded to said things.

And it's pretty obvious that this is inspired by the 3G/3GS, especially the back. I didn't know that Apples codenames for those were Water and Pebbles, though.

4.8" is way too big. I think 4" is the perfect size (and 3.5" is good too).

It's not me who is saying it. It's USPTO. If you want a source for this information, you can find it on many web sites. Here is one example.

Samsung I blooming hate them bloody copy cats but Apple what the hell are they doing? Rolling out just enough every time, I wouldn't be surprised if the iPhone 5 , oh sorry 2012 generation iPhone is again only a slight increase.
I have a horrible feeling apple is doomed to failure letting others once agin steal their idea's and mass market them leaving Apple to be the cult overpriced following it has always been made out to be.
What happened to the Pro Mac's and software, gone replaced by consumer hardware and software, Lion is ridiculous ! who the hell uses "Launchpad" where the hell is Logic X? will it get as much stick as Final Cut Pro X where is the next generation Mac Pro? Apple is to busy trying to invent something new than something reliable and professional. Jeez c'mon Apple you have a golden opportunity here and your pissing up against the wall.

And for those who say that "benchmarks do not matter" and "iPhone UI is very smooth" here is a quote from anandtech: "As Brian put it when he first got time with the device: it's butter."
And with 4 A9 cores running at 1.4GHz vs the iPhone 4's 1 A8 core running at 800MHz and with no out-of-order execution, it only took Samsung & Google 8x the CPU cycles to do with Android what Apple has been doing for years with iOS!

My Galaxy Nexus was constantly overheating and rebooting. I'd pull it out of my pocket and that ugly ICS start-up screen (the one with those twisty things) would be on the screen and the spot on the case where the SOC was would be burning hot. No thanks.

Everyone knows that eventually someone is going to jam a big enough, hot enough, battery-hungry-enough CPU in an Android phone to match the smooth UI of iOS devices of 2 years ago. Maybe this is it. Even my GNex, which was very good, still wasn't nearly as smooth or as apparently fast my 4S is.

That's part of the reason I chuckle when I read these benchmarks. Every one of these android phones feels so noticeably slower than any iPhone I've ever used, and I still haven't owned a smartphone that had anywhere near the battery life that my iPhone 4 had (not even my 4S, unfortunately). My GNex was terrible for battery life, and I had to order away to Korea for an extended life battery to make it halfway acceptable. And 'buttery smooth'? Exactly what they said about the GNex. "So does it still have the touch-screen slop that Android is known for?" Yes, it did. "Does it still halt and shudder when following intents to a new application?" Yes, it does.

Maybe with 8x the CPU cycles to work with, Samsung will finally get it right.

Well that's the Android game...stuff as much as you can and hope for the best. The gnex constantly overheats and reboots, and ics is a buggy mess. I hope with the s3 that Samsung has finally stuffed enough into their phone to make it compete with the iPhone ui.

Hundred dollar says there will be stutter when scrolling through your contacts though, lol.

Tell that to my friend, who keeps trying to claim that his Nexus is the best phone despite all of the horrible experiences he's had with it (and all the times he's needed to borrow my iPhone 4). I think the only reason he buys the Droid is so he can be in the minority.

What's your point? Check the many threads on this very forum about iPhone 4S heating up. That's what these phones do. Unlike iPhone, SGSIII uses CPU manufactured with 32nm process (45nm for iPhone) which reduces power consumption. We'll see how it works. And your GNex is faster at many things than your iPhone 4S (as was SGSII): web browsing and app loading being two important ones.

It needs the backpack because of its dimensions, not its weight.

All I see is Samsung continuing to copy but I hope that Apple see all this and responds with a big improvement in battery life, larger screen and more power!

Lol, benchmarks mean nothing. The galaxy nexus absolutely doesn't perform as well as the iPhone, although as far as Android phones go the nexus is one of the best ones I've seen.

Wait, I've never heard anything about the 4S heating up, and neither of my parents have ever noticed anything.

There have been complaints about the iPad 3 heating up, but they must be insignificant, judging by Apple's stock price and the media's attention on it. It doesn't have to be a big problem for them to all talk about it for weeks, and they haven't really said anything.

Are you suggesting that Apple should copy Samsung?
