I am a Windows Phone fan, but seeing an Android guy bashing the iPhone with those "reasons" is just unbearable.

These speculators are not real users, but they re-sell the phones immediately - to countries like China, which has big demand for Apple products because it's a "Name Brand"/"Status Symbol" to most of them. In China, majority of the owner of iPhone or Apple computers do not even know how to use their phone for anything else other then making phone calls and sending SMS; which any mobile phone can perform!

There are other countries, let's say S-East Asia, where iPhone 5 is not available yet, so speculators are placing orders for them in countries where the phone will be available first, then ship them to those other countries & sell them as Grey Market phones. These speculators can easily mark-up 400-500 Dollars on each one these phones, depending on the demand at the time...this is good business!

Again, most Apple iPhone users or Apple computer users are buying them because of the "Name"; nothing to do with the "Function" of the phone. In other words, just for show, not for go!

Apple fans thought they were about to get something new,while they got the old pizza with larger size nothing more. They were in for a mistake or by mistake.

2. iOS is not "above"/ahead any other OS in terms of anything, it has been playing catch up to other OSs for years now.
3. If someone hasn't got to use an iPhone in their whole live, he/she maybe lives under a rock or inside a cave. Everybody has a friend with an iPhone.
4. Nokia 808's and Nokia 920's cameras are far better than iPhone 5's one.
5. SGS3 reached 9 million pre orders before it was even announced. Nuff said.
6. Learn better English ;)

I won't quote them here because, i think i'm not fool enough to enter same debate all over again.

And as many tech lovers, i always go for high end products not midrange, midget or trend ones.

> In reply to rahulrajnarula @ 2012-09-17 18:04 from utSK - click to readget your facts right. SGS3 got 9 million pre orders, and in 3 month it sold over 20M. And the fact that apple sells more iphone, with such a craptastic phone, only means that the people who buy it, doesn't compare what they have with the competition, they just live in their Apple bubble.

Yeah, the one on top is the one who gets the most criticism. Tell that to apple, who has been suing (criticizing) Android since stone age.
