I'm seen people get just as pissed with Gamestop selling pre-opened games and that has zero effect on the product so this doesn't really surprise me. It would sort of piss me off to although not to the extent of this guy.
Guys, maybe there's one thing we can all agree on: I wish Apple and Android phones weren't all being subsidized in the US. $650 for a phone with $200 in hardware? And I bet the best Android devices are the exact same. I wish the phone manufacturers would stop using carrier subsidies to hide the true cost of their devices so they can milk us consumers.
The reason I'm writing all this is because I'm on prepaid with PagePlus. The iPhone5 and the Galaxy S III both must be smooth as hell compared to my HTC Incredible (running CyanogenMod), but at this rate I'm never going to own one because they're so damn expensive.
There's no good reason why these phones should sell for more than legit tablets. But more power to you if you can afford one.
What about benchmarks where the iPhone5 loses? I'll wait for the links..thanks.
[H]....benchmarks doesn't matter. Freaking LOL....
Can you benchmark real life? You should try. I'm pretty sure analyzing benchmark apps misses the forest for the trees. What good is a fast processor if I can get my camera open faster than you every time with my windows phone? Hardware specs don't tell the full story and this is how a "faster phone" can still be slower at tasks.
The dated xperia S with 2 year old hardware can take a quick photo faster, easier and with more stability than the iphone 5
You like iOS and iPhone5(or 4s ?), good for you. I like Android and my GS3, good for me. Now let's stfu and respect each others opinions, this also goes for everyone hating on Apple in this thread, not just you.
I expected Android fans to claim that there will be an Android phone out soon that beats this.
But that is missing the point,
iOS does more with less. Thats why a 4S, with waaaay less power than an S3, could keep up.
Now we have a phone with supercharged hardware, still running the super efficient iOS.
Even if an Android phone comes out that scores 2500, it still wont match the iPhone 5 in real world performance.
Sucks to be an Androiud fan right now. Losing out on both raw power AND efficiency.
At least you have copy and paste now which only took apple how many iterations to implement?
First people were obsessed with benchmarks until we figured out they werent really that telling. Now we talk about real world performance which is better, but then you think about it and realize that your real world performance concerns are only because you need to fix your angry birds cravings, because as far as real world performance, the iphone doesnt email, text, google search, web surf, or take pictures any better than its competitors do. Those are real world tasks.
Heres another "real world scenario.". You drop your phone and your glass cracks. Lol.
Buy the phone that you want for the price that you want. To suggest that either the entire Android ecosystem or the entire iOS ecosystem is better then the other in every way is shockingly inept. Each one is better at certain things. If I wanted the best camera on a smartphone it sure as shit ain't going to be an android or iOS device as it is.
Congratulations you missed the point (surprise). What made that faster? A faster processor? A faster camera? Software? Interface? Also don't you have to turn it on first still teehee.
I can see where this is heading. My OS is better because it takes 2 clicks to do something versus your OS where the same action takes 3.
Sorry phandroids, gone are the days of claiming hardware superiority over the iPhone.
The funny thing is, the 4S scores in the 700 range, and still keeps up with a SGS3 due to iOS6 optimizations. Now we are getting a phone that not only has more raw computing power than the GS3, the software is still just as optimized. It'll take a octo core at 3ghz for Android to match this iPhone in real world tasks.
Some people have gotten their GS3 to top this score, but the average for all GS3s is in the 1500s.
iPhone: Even beats Android tablets in raw horsepower.
And what do we have here? Validation of all my claims:
This is by far the dumbest thread on these forums right now. The entire content of the OP is written by a fanboy, and is written in such a way to incite other silly fanboys to riot. Key phrases bolded above are the ones intent on starting a fanboy flamefest. I'm actuallly surprised somone managed to out troll the fanboy's in the video card forum.
Congrats OP, you successfully trolled the forum.
no wait but the next generation of android phones is going to [size=+2]BLOW YOU AWAY[/size].
It is a technical achievement.....problem?
wow, the iphone 5 beats the galaxy s3.
but then i was shocked that the iphone 4s beats the galaxy s3 as well.
wtf? why is samsung us carrier hardware so slow? did it launch stateside like 3 years ago?
As a guy who writes offline utilities that actually WRITE firmware, yeah, it's not a technical achievement for the people who double clicked on an exe. But surely, you must be talking about the less than 1% of people who write the tools right?
