Well, there's at least one thing where iPhone 5 is definitely faster than SGS3..

    Am I the only person who finds these videos distasteful ? A pure testament of a wasteful culture, that serves no purpose. How is breaking something, entertaining ? We used to just call it vandalism.

    It's a very cheap way of advertising their blenders.

    It gets them loads of publicity and web hits because they are blending the latest newsworthy products. It would cost a fortune to get that exposure using traditional advertising methods.

    I too dislike these, but was intrigued. The so called "flimsy back" on the S3 lasted quite some time.

    I would imagine the audience that watch these videos are not the type who go out buying these blenders though....

    The only reason the s3 lasted longer is due to its larger size the blades had more trouble grabbing it.

    They've been doing it for years so it must serve some purpose.

    I always watch them and fear for his health. Heaven knows what is in that dust whenever he opens the blender to tip it on the table.

    It's not vandalism if they're doing it to their own stuff. Deep down many people get a sense of satisfaction watching expensive things being destroyed, I know I do.

    I can ask this same question about them choosing to treat their stuff how they want.

    Nope, the S3 lasted longer because it is the best phone on the planet and made from an indestructable substance. Not even Chuck Norris could blend it with his fists.

    Treating their stuff how they want doesn't make it any less meritless, distasteful or wasteful, but if that's what they want to do in their own private world, fair enough and I have no objection to that.

    This changes when they are putting in on the internet and having people post links to it as if it was something worth sharing with the world, worth being proud of, at that point it means that I am entitled to say i'm disgusted by how utterly redundant and moribund it is.

    This thread is sarcastic, right?

    In the US, the iPhone 5 gets the latest version of it's OS, and benchmark wise is faster than the GS3.

    I'm confused.

    You joined less than a month ago, yet are on iPhone forums with an Android phone.

    :confused::confused::confused:

    To each their own.

    Maybe you should be confused.

    This is a Mac forum, not just an iphone forum, and where I have posted is in the "Alternatives to iOS and iOS devices"

    Each to their own :rolleyes:

    Yes, phones in a blender are not any sort of industry test or benchmark.....
