I can't listen to youtube if I minimize the app, that's bunk.

I think my android phone is the best. I've got it rooted and customized and flashed with a new rom. I've got replacement widgets and apps that work differently than the defaults (including replacements for the most basic apps like the dialer and the photo gallery). It absolutely works better for me than the alternatives I have looked into.

It was time for my mom to get a smartphone this past contract renewal...you know what I thought she should get (and ended up getting)? An iPhone.

But what does it say about me that I have an iPhone and my mom has a Galaxy S3? lol8[1].gif

Here's a question for our resident Geniuses: sometimes Siri repeats back what I told her to text, make note of, etc., and sometimes she doesn't. What determines this and how do I make her always do it?

As someone who had an iPhone 4, then a Galaxy Nexus, and now an iPhone 5, I can safely say that the iPhone 5 is the superior phone (in terms of meeting my INDIVIDUAL needs).

I like how the Android UI is constantly revolving, for the better, I must say, and I hate how stale the iOS UI feels by now. I much prefer the browsing functions in my Nexus' browser over the iPhone's but other than that, the iPhone does everything better, faster, and smoother.

Battery life is the biggest differentiator in my case. I can use my iPhone the entire day and come back at 60% battery life. I'd be struggling with 60% battery life on my Nexus by noon and be experiencing battery anxiety by lunch time.

Hmmm. I can't use my iPhone 4GS more than about 5 hours unplugged before the batt gets perilously low. Is the 5 better in that regard?

I will say my battery life has been good.

getting my phone in a week, woop.
post #2829 of 4017
Still don't have mine. At this point I'm going to go ahead and just order it online instead of waiting for stock to hit a local store.

From what I understand a lot of stores are getting new stock the first week of November. You can always order and continue calling local places and cancel the order if a store gets a shipment.

I haven't had an iPhone 4S but I've heard the battery life was shitty compared to the 4, which had AMAZING battery life. So that being said, the 5 definitely has slightly less battery life than the 4, but it's more than acceptable. Whereas I might end the day at 40-60% battery life on the 5, I would have ended with 60-70% on the 4 with similar usage. Thus, I'm deducing that the 5 has better battery life than the 4s, but worse than the 4.

Mind you, I don't stream videos or music or shit. I'm going to get a lot of shit for this, but watching videos on a tiny smartphone screen in public is kinda lame. Nothing I want or have to watch is so urgent that I can't just wait to go home to watch it in comfort on a big screen. So that saves me a lot of battery life (and data). All my music is locally stored.

And all in all, my phone is mainly used for texting, browsing, phone calls, and email. I actually don't have any games on my phone either -- mobile games seem boring to me. I can't have fun in any type of game unless some sort of co-operation or competition is going on with another person(s). Single player games bore me to death. So that's that.

How much do you guys use your phone in a day that you run the battery down so much?

Mine is active constantly- My email is sync'd with corporate, plus some other notification and chat tools, plus wi-fi etc... so it's humming quite a lot.
If I unplug it but don't touch it all day, it will still be dead by evening.

I can usually go two full days no problem.
