Review: Apple iOS 6
Widgets on Android aren't done right
First, the lag-
There's often a noticeable 1-2 second (sometimes turning into a 5 second on start-up) pause before a widget refreshes if it isn't on your primary home screen, which on iOS is enough time to launch the app, see the info, and quit the application to go back to what you were doing.
Usually upon reboot, I have to swipe across all of my home screens to get each widget to 'load.'
Then, the drain-
On several occasions I've had widgets turn into complete battery drains, constantly calling on things like location services. Because Android's power meter isn't exactly transparent, you usually have to re-boot the phone or re-install each widget...
Dont get a iphone ... i deal with them all day an they are the worst phones , all the custom settings you are used to on your android phone are useless, unless you jailbreak the phone , killing your warranty. Dont let their fancy spaz droll you over to the darkside ........ if you are avid android user ....... you will hate the iphone
You will ind how limited it really is
It's just a phone. I just looked at the benchmarks for iPhone 5, and it's crazy. I might want to get one and if I don't like it I can always put android OS on it. lol. I knew someone who did that.
Get a Galaxy S3 or better yet wait for the next Nexus to come out. Should have the newer S4 with the better GPU. Don't become a sheep. If you have to leave Android get a Windows Phone but please don't go to the dark side.
Its screen is worse, TouchWiz is terrible, its build quality is awful, and Samsung has been horrible providing upgrades (even denying them on compatible hardware because of TouchWiz.)
It is a lot, a lot stronger than any iphone. The display is plain amazing and a lot more usable than the iphone's and even if not rooted, there are a lot more things you can do with an Android Phone.
Of course It will not have access to all android updates, no android phone does, even nexus phones get discontinued.
In terms of performance, build quality, versatility... SGSII is the best phone available. (Not to mention is far more customizable, the phone will be "yours" as the iphone will never be)
Now being honest. Any Android phone will be the second sexiest thing after the iphone.
If you think this ain't true. Tell me who's receiving the most attention?
The GSIII is tough, it can resist some abuse (as the one X it has a very strong built and design)
The iPhone 5 is may not be as unbreakable, but it just beautiful.
GSIII is tough, the best hardware from samsung, it has a very strong built and design (like the HTC One X); it is very, very resistant.
The iPhone 5 may not be as unbreakable but it is just beautiful.
