[Verge] Apple's iPhone 5 event - Page 46  

post #451 of 934
It's a good phone, right up there with the other flagship models. I say at this point you can't go wrong with any of them. Edging out insignificant performance numbers that equate to nearly nothing in the user experience is a complete waste of time and makes all of you look like bickering kids.

- I own an HTC One X and S3 work phone
- Fiance preordering Iphone 5

It's going to shrink 720p just like the iPhone 4 and 4S.

I've seen plenty of Samsung fans talk about how far ahead the SGS3 is. How is a dual-core Cortex A15 and quad-core SGX543 graphics not "ahead of the curve"? The processor rivals what the competition uses and the graphics far exceeds anything else on the market.

And yet all that power is being wasted on a 4" display......

And while yes it is faster then anything out there, can the end user see or feel a difference between it? Nope.. .

The end user will see a difference between the screen size and resolution....

The 4S and the S3 already run pretty much everything at stupidly high frame rates, often way surpassing the 60fps mark or constantly bouncing on the V-Sync limiter so what will adding more GPU power do? I suppose cause they won't release another phone now for 12+ months they need to mark it future proof but in 6 months it'll be behind again.

They also don't have the highest PPI any more either...

^ Except the PS Vita, lol.

It's not ahead of the curve. It's an increase in performance. Ahead of the curve would be new features before everyone else, like Siri.

They will also see a difference between good graphics and great graphics. Of course there's no benefit to existing apps unless they're running under 60 FPS, but enhancements can be made to them to take advantage of the better graphics, and new games can look much better on the iPhone 5.

Is the significantly faster dual-core Cortex A15 and more equally importantly quad-core SGX543 not "new features"? It's the thinnest, lightest most powerful smartphone available.

Keep in mind that you are posting on an enthusiast site in which performance is most important however minute it is to the casual user.

So how are they getting off with saying it's the thinnest and lightest smart phone around if it's not true?
