    That's fan-speak. Apple's originality passed away when Mr Jobs died, and the so-called quality only ever existed in the marketing spiel. Fan boys choose to ignore that the more advanced and better regarded manufacturers are using components and software which, time will tell, are superior to old Fat Apple.

    As an owner of a Samsung S4 I can tell you their software is crap, build quality crap, glitches galore. I would also say a iPhone probably has more Samsung components in it then the S4

    Sadly mate, I can't deny it, having neither, and given that I rely on our forums' members a lot to give me advice on my next purchase.

    Several problems with all modern phones, drop them, they break = Expensive to repair, lose them = expensive to replace. To many options on many phones that 95% of people never use. To many people carry their life around in their pockets.

    I can't argue with that. I have tried talking my skate boarding mad son to go old school for a phone. Unfortunately teens don't seem to communicate with texts anymore, it's all messages based for them.

    An S3 Mini is also not getting anymore software upgrades. Avoid. Better off with a Motorola G for that money.

    At this stage that is probably quite true considering that Samsung is one of the few companies that can meet Apple's global demand for selected component manufacture for the various models of iPhone.
