All of this GS3 vs iPhone 5 **** is insane. It's a PHONE people! It calls people, sends/receives texts, checks mail, YouTube and browses the Internet. You can play games on both, too. It's absolutely ridiculous that people are literally fighting and insulting each other based on a technology choice. OCN is such a cesspit for elitist USERS. Remember that, you're all USERS. None of you developed either phone or gain ANYTHING from the success or failure of the devices. All you do is USE it. Go and USE it and leave others be.

Still bought the iPhone 5. Don't care. I've been Android for around 5 years now with my latest phone being the Desire HD and a change suits me.
I don't like Apple, I don't like their business mechanics, but I like their products. That's all.

The biggest deciding factors for me are the replaceable battery, NFC and screen size.

You forgot ease of customization, ROMS, ease of root

What is the point of this post? The article gives features that would convince a user to buy a phone over another phone. Picking between iOS and Android is a big deal. You're investing time and money into an ecosystem and consumers should make informed decisions. Get out of here with your stuff and go to the rants/raves section if you want to complain about OCN users.

BTW, we do gain from the success or failure of a platform. If Android fails, I'm out money because I've invested time and money into Android and the same thing goes for iOS users. If the platform is more successful, developers and hardware manufacturers will flock to that certain system and develop more apps and accessories that consumers can buy to customize their experience even more.

This is much like saying a computer is just something with a mouse and keyboard that surfs the internet and plays games and it's not all that important. It's no different than ATI/nV and Intel/AMD. We are fanboys for the most part, we do have personal preferences that we believe are correct, and we will defend such decisions. Not everyone does it constructively, however, all of the debates are the same in nature.

As stated above, this is OCN. We are powerusers.
