Show me what you can do with a 3.5 inches screen.

It's galaxy s3 with new 2 ghz 4 core exynos cpu and new mali gpu. It's best smartphone of 2012. Sit back and watch. You will gulp down when you see SGS3 specifications I guess its even better than your pc .

I won't buy it either way cuz it will run crappy software and the next iPhone will surpass it anyhow.

I fear the SGS III will be (another) unusably large phone.

Sure, android phones are beasts specs-wise.
But what's the point, seriously.

Android looks far less optimized and far less smooth compared to iOS.

iOS doesn't need a quad-core to run.
Is that a drawback?

The choice IMO is (lots of great apps + smoothness + user-friendly = iOS) vs (geeky + highly customizable + freedom = Android).

Pick!

I don't get what apps look so bad on android? Facebook, youtube etc all look fine. Deadspace and other high end games play well. You just seem to think android is super laggy when its not. You can make any phone lag but I don't think my android is notably lagging personally.

Edit: the bragging bit was mistakenly addressed to you but was intended for the commenter about the gpu, I probably should have multi quoted.

I installed facebook and the weather channel on my asus transformer and on a new iPad I just purchased. Apps look different and way better on the iPad. Same goes for many of the apps. I rarely see lag on the iPad compared to my Android tablet. Typing is a lot easier now too...every time I make a mistake on my Transformer and try to go back and correct it i can't even get to the word half the time; on top of that keyboard lag pisses me off. You are talking to a guy that hated Apple products until I actually tried them myself. Specs mean nothing to me anymore since I tried their products instead of blindly bashing them like many here do. Android will always have more lag then iOS and WM 7 and 8 until they re write the whole OS and this is fact.

I agree ios is usually smoother than same spec android phone but more recent ics phones are much better than older ones so lag isn't really a big problem anymore.

As for hating Apple I've actually always thought their products very good even though I don't like their patent war against android.

But regarding transformer yes I have heard its bad.

It's a money trap with low hardware.

Why Iphone doesn't need high specs?

Because it doesn't have real multitasking - multithreading even an actual home screen to show something.

And. MY SGS IS SMOOTHER THAN ANY IPHONE. Because I can see what eats ram and delete it. Even I made a gaming mode which disables everything before game start. I can overclock my sgs if I wish. It's 1.4 ghz with stock voltage. Even GPU is %25 overclocked and stock voltage.

Which app is crap? Are you crazy??? Google API's are way better than any apple ****!!!

Don't tell me story about fragmentation. Every phone has a GPU which is different. Every PC is different too.

But all are using OpenGL 2.1 or Direct X.

Iphone is most buggy phone in the world. I can't tell all bugs now.

-3 hours battery time: (Apple: "We know It's normal")
-Call drops: (Apple: "You are holding it wrong")
-Camera button takes images rotated
-Alarm is not working after every year change. (If you set an Alarm in 31/12/2012, It wont work at 01/01/2013. That bug presents since 2006.)
-Lack of security (You can't see most lacks because it's closed source. If there is an exploit, you can never know it.)
-Safari just sucks. What the hell is it. (You can't compare it with Chrome on ICS. If you do it you must be crazy.)
-WTF is Retina Display? It's a typical LCD with no specialty.
-Stealing stuff from android.
-Trying to hold the atmosphere with HTML5 but no success.
-Android 5.0 will be based on native apps, which is 15x faster than Java and dalvik.
-When you update your Iphone 3GS to IOS5, It's more laggy than my grandmums android.
-Siri is Voice Dialler from Android.
-When you update apps from AppStore, app remains will stay. There is no dalvik to clear there.
-Nokia 3310 is smooth too. (What's the difference? It has 12byte of ram. It must be best. Even it doesn't need QUAD CORE!)

That's probably the reason I use a Nokia 1100 as well then. Specs are pretty worthless. Who cares about a colour screen? Who cares about your GPU? It can run Snakes II and Space Impact + without lag at all without your quad-core or ICS or Retina Display, plus according to sales, it's the world's best phone of all time. Must be the best then.
But, seriously speaking, tell me specs don't matter when you've tried a 3GS updated to anything after iOS 4. It's absolutely terrible. That's why old Android phones don't get upgraded after they've passed their best before date - smoother older version is better than newer version that can't run your weather app properly anymore.
