    I agree. I can't find any reason to be loyal to a single company unless it's giving me all kinds of stuff for free such as a house and a brand new exotic supercar each year. Both phones are fantastic phones, but both also have their own flaws. I own both because each one has features I want. I love S3 because it's customizable so you can change practically anything you want once you root it (very easy to do using a one-click rooting app) such as the font type, size, screen color, font color, etc. The widgets and ability to have so many options that appears by a mere touch of practically any screen is just really, really convenient. Battery life is great if you root it and install a ROM. But S3 is too wide for me, although it's light for its size and quite pleasing to handle with the hands because of its smooth curved edges. And that's where Iphone 5 comes in. Iphone 5 is just a beautiful device in terms of hardware that fits my hands perfectly, although its sharp edges forced me to hide its undeniable should-never-be-hidden beauty behind a case. And as I discovered, the quality of Iphone apps are much better, and much nicer to look at. Unfortunately, having the back button in IOS at the top drives me nuts constantly so I feel compelled to jailbreak the phone. Once you're used to doing what you want with your OS, IOS just feels so outdated and no longer user-friendly. Android is introducing many new features including "undelete" in Gmail (which I think will soon appear in Android) that S3 feels more like a computer than Iphone. But none of Android's features will serve me well when the hardware is just humongous, and still getting bigger and bigger, and so a burden to carry anywhere. The bottom line is, the current state of technology is already so advanced that the decision to pick any one device over the other has now been reduced mostly to personal preferences. And there's no point in arguing over personal preferences.

    I think the iphone is quite boring coming from android but it's a very reliable phone and does the basics very well, I'm quite envious of the note 2 btw.

    How about almost 24 hours with LTE and a 4 inch screen on auto brightness and all the radios running. All that while running a 1440 mah battery.

    You forgot to mention the battery size. In the interest of full disclosure, you should say that it is a 3300 mah on the Razor HD MAXX.

    Also not remotely a fair comparison. If the iPhone 5 gets the battery life it does with a battery that's half the size of the Maxx's, then it would eat the Maxx alive if it had the same size battery.

    Go look at the my post and your reply. I showed a pic of how long the battery lasted, running lte, all the running radios, screen size/brightness, and battery size. You omitted battery size. Why? This is dishonest. That is what I mean by full disclosure.

People make statements about iPhones last longer than android phones on batteries all the time.... That's like saying your car is faster than mine... But after we race, you say "well that's not fair because you have more power than I do." So what? You said yours would go faster... You didn't specify that our engines had to be the same before we raced. Lol.

    Still feel the same way

    Dude, give up on this guy. I got into this same debate earlier; he still doesn't get it.

    For battery comparisons, I don't even consider the Maxx since it's already at the top of that list. We're comparing similarly sized phones with batteries of about the same amperage.

If that is true, there are alternate android forums for you to share your love with other android folk. Here you simply spread negativity and argue with other members. Perhaps you enjoy that. Perhaps you are indeed trolling. Regardless, you don't seem to agree with others so perhaps a nice Galaxy S3 or Razr Maxx forum would better suit your tastes.

    Alright, first of all look at the title of this thread. It's been said before in this very thread that the OP is basically inviting the argument... I didn't start it, just participated in it.

    Second, not once have I started a thread myself with the intent of arguing about this kind of crap. The threads I have participated in lately were for the most part intended to compare the two platforms in some way. I haven't come here with ill intent.... But having had the 4, 4S, and 5 along with the S3 and Maxx HD I believe it gives me the right to have an opinion on the matter... Probably even more so than some of these apple fan boys that had an android phone 3yrs ago and didn't like it.

    And third, i am a member of an android forum... And these types of threads don't exist over there, the only mention of apple I see is how glad the person is to have something different or "better" for them. In fact there's not much mention of an iPhone at all. What does that say about this forum if there's so many people talking or considering android? Seems like there's a lot more unhappy people over here... Lol.

    So to follow up, I'm here partly because I have an iPhone still on my account and I like to keep up with what's going on, so I read....Partly because people on this forum insist on starting threads like this that inevitably turn into complete BS... And partly because I have every right to be, just like you.

    This thread was a retaliatory thread towards all the trolling threads that started when the iPhone 5 was released...all the so called "comparison" threads that were little more than bait material for arguments.

    Also, you don't find people trolling on the android forums because, at least around here on iMore, you don't have members trying to go else where to PROVE one phone's superiority over another...that seems to be a trait of android fanboys (for the most part).

    It's all good though, this thread should have been closed weeks ago.
