    I wouldn’t be so excited and pay for something that is over priced and over-rated….. Iphone 5 has got much to offer for me and it is not that much faster than S3 in benchmark especially when S3’s has more features on the phone (which actually helps slows down the system)…. The one to look out and to drool like Homer thiking about beers for is the new APQ 8064 quad core chip which is on Oppo Find 5 x909 and it will not be over priced like the Iphone5.
