"TEST-ERGEBNIS

Auch wenn sich das iPhone 5 nicht kabellos laden lässt (was andere Smartphones bieten) und der Bildschirm beim Lesen dunkel wird (was andere vermeiden) – bei Leistung und Design setzt Apple Maßstäbe, an denen sich die Konkurrenz messen lassen muss!

"

That may upset people who are overly into spec numbers. ^^,

No HD display, no NFC and OS that is showing it's age... truly ahead of competition.


Retina display is HD....

iOS 6 is released today...so it's not old by any means...lol?

It's not HD based on the official classification. It has a very high pixel density though so it doesn't matter much

But yeah, I think price should be talked more about in reviews. This phone is way more expensive than alternatives from other manufacturers.


Such as...?

Galaxy S3...

I guess it just depends on where you live. I just checked out the AT&T page and guess what iPhone 5 starts at $199 and the Galaxy S3 is $199. Wow, so much more expensive! Oh, wait...

I just checked at two carriers in Japan. One has the GS3 and the other has the iPhone 5. The iPhone 5 is free (16gb), 10,320 yen (32gb) or 20,640 yen (64gb) with contract. If you want the GS3 it costs 19,110 yen with contract. Hmmm....

You lost me at AT&T ;)

Now compare the prices if you want to pay for it in full immediately and not be stuck on a goddamned contract



So it was suggested that Apple will flog 6 million over the weekend which does make you think iSheep, hard not too really. It was also suggested we put those iSheep against a wall (Would have to be in China only wall big enough) and shoot them.

But is it really their fault after all you read articles like this from the Guardian who claim Apple have produced a perfect phone and you start to realise its not all their fault. Also its not a bad OS or phone so its a bit like the old phrase nobody got sacked for buynig IBM. I am with Kowenicki the "journos" still thinks the world still spins around Apple, after all desktop publishing is not possible on anything else.

Slimebeast mentiond he thought WP8 would die because nobody cares and everyone hates on Microsoft (Mostly irrationaly) and this may well prove prophetic. If this did happen it would be a real shame as for my money some of the best phones are coming too the WP8 ecosystem certainly I see more innovation and invention coming from the likes of Nokia in the shape of the 920.

WP8 is also getting some of the best Andriod hardware, this time I am thinking of the Ativ a relative clone of the SIII and later today we will probably get a HTC One X equivalent. So it may come true but for me this is the area where things are geting stirred up.

Winner of the 2010 VGC Holiday sales prediction thread with an Average 1.6% accuracy rating. I am indeed awesome.

Kinect as seen by PS3 owners ...if you can pick at it   ...post it ... Did I mention the 360 was black and Shinny? Keeping Sigs obscure since 2007, Passed by the Sig police 5July10.

Too big to fail.



Ongoing bet with think-man: He wins if MH4 releases in any shape or form on PSV in 2013, I win if it doesn't.

I've used a phone with a Retina Display and I've used a Galaxy S3. 'Retina Display' is just a fancy term apple made up to make it seem fancier than it is.

lol it's not.

 

Er yeah its a made up,  its not a standard. Try looking up "Retina" in your display standards.

It isn't just about the hardware alone, i do agree with that. It is possible to argue that the Iphone can be matched by many phones. However, what put me off previously was Android. I agree with others that Andoroid is a total mess. Its all over the place. I cant stand it, its terrible!!

Windows8 has changed this. So I can now go for a equivalent (perhaps better) UI/OS and also choose from phones from other manufacturers that will, without any question, surpass the iphone5 soon if they haven't already. The Nokia 920 is better in many ways.

How am I wrong? Hit me.

Please don't mention Apps, its a red herring. Windows has 100,000 apps already and this is going to explode once windows 8 and tablets launch.



I'm not really here!

Shouldn't this go in the Mobile Section.

No, it's fine where it is.

WP8 phones are the only real alternatives to the iPhone, in my book.

It's the only OS that tries to do things its own way, like iOS does.  And, although I haven't got the chance to try one yet, is looking really intuitive and user friendly, as well as being sleek design-wise.
