    Great first impression. I thought I was going to find a press release being rewritten as a review :) It’s probably not a big of a jump but iPhone users will definitely love iPhone 5. Pre-ordering tomorrow

    I look at a lot of the same things you do and it was nice to get that perspective. The physical size is more important to me than screen size and I’m with you on “thumb reach” and OS.

    I never had a big LTE concern, but that’s because I generally have a (Verizon) mifi and AT&T reception in NYC has been written about plenty.

    I am an Android fan, mainly because I believe in open source software (Free Software).

    That being said, I always envy how fast the iPhone is and how smooth the user experience is. I will never buy one, but I am glad it exists because I know us Android people will achieve that sexiness too someday!

    I know some of the ROMs are just as fast as iOS but stock Android just isn’t. Apple is milliseconds faster most of the time, and those milliseconds make a better experience.

    Android 4.1 made a pretty big leap in terms of speed and I know the Android team is working on this, I can’t wait for the next release of the Nexus!

    the only thing that I like is the bigger size, and I am still
    hesitant to pay for it.

    you obviously have not used a S3, it address all these issues you just mentioned, with stock rom.

    As an Android user since day one, I’ve been on the fence for the past year about switching to Apple. I said if the iPhone 5 had a bigger screen and 4g I was in. I’ve been looking for an iPhone 5 vs. Android comparison so your post is perfect. Thanks for taking the time to put this together. After reading this, I think I’ll have to take the plunge…although I wish Apple would have made the screen the same size as my Droid:) I like big screens…did I mention that?

    I am shocked that Apple would steal turn by turn navigation from Google. Google better sue….

    Or rather they licensed it from TomTom, but you know don’t let the facts get in the way of your anti-Apple bias.

    Danny you say you are a thumb typer and you want to go to the iPhone 5? Have you even tried the Smasung’s Swype type feature? I guarantee if you use swype type for 4 day you won’t go to the iPhone!

    “I want to go to …” works with Google Now.

    You may be right but I don’t think S3 is fully open source. I think they have some proprietary hot sauce mixed in. I am speaking about stock Android not the mods Samsung or anyone else makes. If they don’t contribute back then it doesn’t help the community.

    wow! tom tom? one more reason not to upgrade to 5. any of you ever own a tom tom? had one before i switched to iphone 3gs..it was so bad at figuring out where it was going that i literally chucked the 400 dollar P.O.S. out the window and felt better. Mac should have gone with garmen if they were going to liscence.

    Licensed it from TomTom, and a ton of other providers. I’ve been using iOS 6 for two months and have to say that turn-by-turn is better than on my HTC One X.

    AT&T and Verizon use different technologies for their cellular network, so they can’t make a phone that works on both. Apart from that though, it’s global. (not on a single chip, anyway, which is what thay did to make it so thin)

    I am switching to iPhone because guess what? iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and 4S are getting iOS 6 at the same time. Unlike Android who has such a fragmented nature that some popular phones will never get updated to Jelly Bean.

    I’m having a world of problems with Bluetooth Audio skipping on my iPhone 5. I didn’t have this problem with my iPhone 4, so it’s either the new phone or iOS6. It’s crazy, I can physically touch my phone and the audio will stop playing. Hopefully it’s a software issue that can be addressed in the next iOS update.
