      If you cut up the apple & remove it's core, then you don't get the pip, like you do with orange.

      Yeah if you was going from any iPhone other than the 4. The phone is a nippy piece of kit to start with, both the 4 and 4s run at 800MHz (common consensus) the addition of an extra core isnt going to make it feel x amount faster than the 4, it just doesn't work like that. As for increased GPU performance again if you are playing COD then great you will love it but most people spend all their life twanging cheesed off birds around the screen in glorious 2D.

      I don't love Apple, but my iPhone is the best phone I've had, and I've used various smartphones and various OSes in the past.

      I don't show it off - I use it.

      Not everybody is like that. Why the hate and constant ****-taking?

      Why do they "suck in general"? Some of the stuff you said previously isn't even true (no third party apps, you get caught if you Jailbreak, and "there os is the same as it always is its never changed"). You don't even like apps, anyway, and said you just want to text, call, and use Facebook, so wh ydo you even care?

      As I said before, sure you get "Apple fanboys" who can go OTT with their praise of Apple and inability to see anything Apple's done as bad or stupid, but it always seems to be the Android owners who do all the slating of the "other side", not the Apple owners. [Certainly is on every other forum I go on!]

      Mobile gaming isn't all about Angry Birds and the like.

      Infinity Blade 2 will take advantage of the increased power, for a start:

      If 4 to 4S isn't noticeable, what about GS to GS II?

      Re: Samsung Galaxy S2 "No1 Phone"

      Rather than get into a silly spat over which phone is better than another, for no more reason than to justify a personal choice against another's, when I believe some individual's may not have all the facts to hand, can we just accept that each phone has it's advantages?

      If any particular phone was that bad, then the people who do earn serious amounts of money would not but them.

      Personally I was using a mobile phone for work just before they were getting popular. I regarded it as a tool to enable me to be contacted by the office & vice versa.

      Since then texting has taken off, games have changed, navigation tools have become available and many other gadgets.

      The important thing to ask is: are you getting value for money from your mobile phone?

      Whether or not someone regards it as a status symbol is relevant to them and their chums, not to the 16 year old who texts her boyfriend because it is cheap & able to be done easily, or the 35 year old who wants to check his email as his boss is sending something important.

      I also know someone who uses her phone regularly when travelling between work sites. She plugs it in to her car stereo, uses it for navigation & to play her MP3s. When someone calls her, she is also able to respond without handling the phone. When she isn't driving she can use it for Skype calls or texting via MSN or Yahoo.

      I'll let you decide which phone it is.
