    being an owner of an iPhone 4S, i can say that i enjoyed this device. lately, it seems that apple is having extreme difficulties staying up to par with many other android devices, mainly the recently announced Samsung Galaxy S-IV. what are your thoughts about this? i personally will be switching from apple to samsung (maybe the S-IV or Note 2) in the following moths. its funny because people used to switch to apple and not the other way around. also i find the "why iPhone" (http://www.apple.com/iphone/why-iphone) page very pathetic - its such a beg on apple's part #smfh. honestly, the points mentioned in the page is so obvious and not worth mentioning since it is already in the main description pages. it can be concluded that the phone has traveled the most it can for this form factor but until apple reinvents the phone again, you will surely find many more users like myself. i found myself looking at past apple introductions of new products and found that apple just finds a different way of saying something simple for example: fusion drive instead of just hybrid. this gets the general people hyped up and they have no idea what is really going on. i wish apple all the best with its future endeavors but come on can you really compare iPhone 5 with the S-IV? don't think so

    You should check out the new Samsung S4

    Its an amazing device that Apple will be playing catch up with for years to come.

    You should try the SG4. You will find out just how similar it is to an iPhone. Oh that's right, Samsung stole all the patents, no wonder.

    The SGS4 isn't all that much "better" than the iPhone 5 hardware wise. It's different size wise and that will certainly appeal to some but if you've ever read anything about the A6 and the chips the SGS4 will use you'll understand why an "octocore" isn't all that much faster in real world use, if at all, than a dual core A6. Hint: More cores are for battery efficiency and making spec sheets look good not raw speed as almost no apps (even Android) are coded to take advantage of those extra cores. Besides, the SGS4 can only use 4 cores at a time anyway. Source

    Phone hardware all around is great these days. It's the OS and ecosystem that make the most difference. For power users iOS definitely needs to kick it up a notch. However, for hardware ecosystem (AppleTV, Airport Express) Android doesn't even come close. Too bad too because the cancelled Nexus Q would've bridged that gap.

    Nope. Just fine. Didn't fall for all the Samsung brainwashing.

    I think you meant Apple brainwashing.

    Nope. Samsung brainwashing. Of course it could be similar to Apple brainwashing. I'm sure Samsung stole that too.

    Did Apple patent brainwashing too?

    Along with squares and book flipping. Too good.
