Good: Simple, Larger Screen, Smart Look.
Bad: Apple Own It. Its the same in most ways. Another way to take your money.
Comment: I am an Android Fan, Running S3. And yes i still rate this highly, because of its looks its simplicity (which are what apple are about). Besides ripping you off apple have got a good product here, with its functionality, easy to use design. Great for people who are fairly simple, shallow or have too much money (and sheep's of course known as iSlaves) However thats all apples argument is now, IT just 'Works' or its 'Simple' etc, but with phones of a same or cheaper price that are so much incredibly more powerful like Samsung S3 & Note2 + HTC X + Nokia, why are you still paying outrages amount of money for something that is a year behind. A6 processor? is it dual or quad? dont matter because it still better value for money with an android or windows phone, why? Cheaper to buy, Cheaper Accessories, Better Performance, Better compatibility with windows, Expandable Memory, Removable Battery, the list goes on. To argue againt iTunes, you have amazon MP3 Downloads, or Spotify. To argue Against FaceTime we have Skype. Apple Maps = Google Maps. Android has had Facebook integration for ages. Safari = Internet.
