    Attached is the great "unbiased" review of the iphone 5 sent to me today by my rabid iphone friend.

    What impressed me most about the iPhone 5 is this drop test. It held up really well with some real hard drops:

    Must be a great improvement over the 4 and 4s. I had two 4's and they both failed my vodka night drop test horribly.

    The thing is, I watched an iphone4 glass shatter last weekend from a rock smaller than a little fingernail, when it was dropped from less than two feet high. Drop tests prove time and again to me that, no matter what they do, these things aren't real world scenarios.

    A real world drop test is dropping it from waist level to the ground... carpet, tile, pavement, and stairs.

    I've dropped my Titan (no case) on pavement (getting in/out of my car) 4 different times, and I have exactly two scuff marks on it and no marks on the screen.

    A coworker cracked her iPhone 4S sitting at her desk and dropping it when I startled her one day. It fell maybe 6-8".

    I hope that the iPhone 5 is better for the sake of its users, but I have my doubts... especially considering scuffgate.

    Terrible, biased review from an obvious Apple shill. It's a shame that sites like TechCrunch, Slash Gear, Gizmodo, Engadget etc employ guys who clearly have a bias towards Apple products. Their bias is evident when they have double standards - praising Apple for one thing, but then knocking other products for the same thing.

    Engadget and Gizmodo actually give WP high praise. THey just like the iPhone too.

    engadget actually leans pro android. The verge on the other hand... that Topolski just gave it an 8.8 despite saying that if it was exactly what the leaks said it would be, it would be a disappointing, but "IT'S TIME TO STOP GIVING WINDOWS PHONE A PASS". an 8.8 with flawed maps and apps that now have black bars on the top and bottom, welcome to fragmentation city.:@

    Well,from my own opinion,Android phones still do not match Apple's innovation, quality, service, customer support, quality, hardware and software integration, tightly integrated ecosystem, quality apps, ease of use, stability, and tech support.
    Yeah, I hear that a lot from Apple enthusiasts. I'll tell you the same thing I tell them: if I'm paying twice as much for a product, I sure as **** better be getting top flight service for it. My Mac Book pro (if it hasn't been recalled) better get me coffee in the morning for the obscene price I paid for it.

    As to that article, the writer is a pure unadulterated shill and a hack, and his piece is about as useless as it gets.

    This. I just got a friends 4 year old HP Vista Laptop (loaded W8 Preview on it) to come back to life. While talking about it he stated, "and this is why I got a MacBook". So I asked, "what did you pay for that MacBook". $1,100. And that consumer grade HP Laptop. $499. Why would you expect anything else.

    I think The Verge's "unbiased" review will probably top this one, but I haven't read it yet

    Buddy I do agree with that, actually this things doesn't exist in real world. That's what we say marketing strategy.
