Mugato: So did Samsung's check clear, Drew?


If you can get them to write me one I'll cash the hell out of it

Where is gingerjet claiming that the iphone 5 has the fastest processor in the market?

I am an tech manager at one of the largest carriers in the US.

My phone, an s2, never had a problem with it, and with juice defender, i get two days out of fairly heavy use.

But then again how many people leave gps and wifi on all the time?

Call me when apple lets you schedule every app on the phone, wait because you cannot.

My phone came out in 2011, I am running jellybean, 4g, nfc, and have a 64 gig chip in it.  Sorry, the iphone sucks, and I have only my most used apps on the home screen.

And I wanted to, I could buy a bigger battery...

We just did a study at work, and the largest part of our tech support dollars go to the iphone for either faulty hardware which apples says is our fault, or iphone users not understanding how to use their phone.

Mikey1969: I love my SIII, awesome phone. Wish I COULD upgrade, going to have to wait another year and a half, though.

Fun fact: Samsung has sold 100 million of the Galaxy line. Apple has sold only 85 million iPhones, and has had a longer time to do it in. Samsung must be doing something right if they were even able to overtake the cream of the "Buy a new phone every year with the same features" crop.


There have been 6 iPhones. There have been 45 Samsung Galaxy devices (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samsung_Galaxy ). If you're suggesting that flooding the market with cheap devices and a few flagships is doing it right, you're correct.

timujin: Klitch: So when does Samsung become the same as Apple for putting out new iterations of the same phone with small unnoticeable tweaks every year?

So... do you actually think the differences between the hardware under the current SIII and the proposed hardware they're talking about here are "small unnoticeable tweaks"?


Just to chime in, personally I don't believe that. But that exact criticism has been levied by Farkers against iPhones when they include camera, RAM, CPU, and body design upgrades.

Mostly because Apple can't get on the largest China mobile carriers and Samsung can.

unlikely: And an extended battery life of 37 very long seconds will be one of the many reasons you love this device.


And done.

Seriously, who needs this, 8GPUs in a phone for gods sake?

Did anyone here read the part about how it will have an eye tracking feature? Why does me phone need to see where I am looking? Targeted advertising perhaps?

Actually, the way thes emobile chipsets work, often only as many cores as needed or the task are actually active.  The rest just sit there.


I've heard this claim plenty of times, yet somehow the battery life still gets progressively worse as new models come out.  I suppose it's possible that it could be more to do with the unnecessarily high clock speed.

Easy way - "Fark party in Seoul, brought to you by Samsung, and probably Jose Cuervo".

ajgeek: Great... Why? And "because they can" is not a legitimate answer. Neither is "e-peen" or a variant thereof.


Because they can is the best answer. Otherwise we'd all be on old 50s computers, that take up 2 storey houses.
