Seriously, I can see where this statement existed with validity when the iPhone 1st gen came out because it was the benchmark for which all upcoming cell phones followed. Apple carved the market and now other tech companies have caught up, but the tech is so close and good now that to say any phone "kills" another is just plain BS. If people are referring to specs, it is not applicable because the tech is neck and neck. If they are referring to popularity, again, Android and Apple fans are neck and neck in their enthusiasm. The ONLY way a phone could become a Killer now as it stands is if they came up with a transparent holographic phone that could read your mind and obey your mental commands. The "iphone killer" train left the station 3 years ago when Apple was in the lead. Now everyone is just CAUGHT up is all! Either way, gettin tired of the "iphone killer" articles or statements. Oh and I bought a SSGS3 today and am very excited to get a chance to play with it. I still have my iPad 3 and giving my iP4 to my mom so it will still be loved for a couple more years! Saying any phone is an "iphone killer" is almost as stupid as saying flavoured ice cream is a "vanilla ice cream killer". Nothing kills the original prototype esp if it has stood on the top of the hill for 3+ years. Everything else is just catch up or improving upon the original product.
