    EverythingEverywhere are getting the go ahead to start their LTE network in the UK. The infrastructure isn't really there yet though. They only recently got 3G to my hometown (after I switched networks to GiffGaff/O2 which still hasn't bothered) so I'm gonna say it'll be a while before we get anywhere with the coverage. There's also a bit of a row over them getting this go ahead as the bands for LTE haven't been put up for auction yet and other networks view this as EE getting an unfair headstart.

    lol everyone always complains about things.
    All networks were complaining about the price of 3G.

    To be honest, I am more than happy with 3G. They should just improve the 3G coverage before going above that.

    Let me guess? still no micro sd slot, and max is 64 gb (and probably $18,960 for the 64gb)?

    Apple is so lame; they should give up and conform.

    How about teaching them what the word NEW means. Like instead of the NEW iPad, why don't they get real and stop lying and say the "IMPROVED" iPad.

    Apple could give people the same thing and they wouldn't know.

    Saw an article on Verge that points out the main flaw of the iPhone at the moment. That the UI remains identical to how it was originally despite the advances made by other OSes. I suppose if it ain't broke don't fix it but some kind of change would be very welcome and have the phones feel a lot less same–y

    I didn't jailbreak my iPhone, still iOS crashed while using much RAM.
    You always try to make me look like a apple hater, but that's not the case,
    the fact that I had an iPhone proves that.

    The thing that everybody is complaining, but you refuse to accept is:
    Everybody is disappointed with iPhone 5 because they expected something innovative and revolutionary
    This iPhone 5 was just more of the same,
    it didn't inovate in anything,
    and is inferior in many specs to many android phones.

    No one is saying Apple sucks or iPhone suck,
    we're just saying it didn't impress us.

    But it COULDN'T be a RAM issue as you can't effectively use too much RAM on an iPhone. I linked that article for a reason.
    Well, then it was just an app problem. It's not like Apple can check out every app out there for bugs. Some app you had was bugged and made the iPhone crash.

    Want to know what's revolutionary? The A6 is based on the Cortex A15. Apple is the first one to market that architecture. And it did beat every other manufacturer out there.

    That's innovation.

    Well, that makes it SUPERIOR to most Android phones out there, right? ;)

    Okay you really need to do some research. The Galaxy S3 has the S4 processor, and many more phones as well. Apple's playing catch up

    Excuse me dear sir but...

    MSM8960 is based on Krait, which is an ARM variation from Qualcomm.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Krait_%28CPU%29

    It is custom made by Qualcomm, and while it shares something with the A15, it is in no way a real Cortex-A15.

    Man, you did go a long way to show erroneously that Samsung is always better than Apple for you, huh?

    But specs don't really mean very much when the device is already very capable and Apple controls the hardware / software. When you control both it becomes easier. Also, we don't know many of the actual specs, I mean, we don't know the CPU clock rate, how many cores the CPU has or anything like that. Heck, we don't even know how much RAM it has.

    Any problem I've every had with my iPhone has always been while it was jailbroken. That's my main reason for not doing it anymore.
    I have a few android tablets in the house and the wife and I both have iPhones and we love them both. Going to be getting 2 iPhone 5s for us when they go on preorder tomorrow.

    There is just too much fanboy BS on here anymore.

    Saying the specs do not matter is saying almost every iPhone is the same than thing.
    The better the specs, the better the product are.
    If I'm not mistaken, it was already posted that the new iPhone has 1GB of RAM,
    which is lower than the 2GB of S3.
