You are a somebody just like me. But like I said you are here on a tech forum so people like you and me don't really represent the general public very well. Most people that don't frequent sites like this have no idea what AMOLED, DPI, color gamut, or anything else means. All they know is the size of the display and that that it says 1080P since they recognize that term from their TV's. That is the point I am trying to make is that non-tech folk which is 99% of the buying...
I have checked. My best friend has an S4 and I have an iPhone 5. I have spent a lot of time looking and using his phone just to check it out. I have done side by side comparisons. Both of of us play a game called Modern War and opened up that app side by side. It looked gorgeous on the S4 as it did on my iPhone 5. But because the display was just so much larger you can see nearly your whole base on the S4 but you have to scroll and zoom a lot on the iPhone to see your...
The reality is that the display on the S4 is miles ahead of what was used on the S3. You can not dispute this point. You are also correct that there is still a gap especially when it comes to solid white background where the S4 will look slightly grayish compared to an HTC One or and iPhone. But the reality is unlike a TV where people would really notice these things especially if they are watching a 2-hr blu-ray movie , on a phone you really are less likely to notice or...
You already answered your own question. Small towns might only have a few or even just one tower so the transition is very quick and easy. Big citieis can have hundreds of towers which takes a massive amount of time. It also depends on regulations. Small towns typically will push through all the red tape necessary to do changes on base stations very quickly and you have fewer interested parties you have to deal with. In bigger cities there is a mountain of paperwork and...
Although it would be very surprising to have a major  redesign of the 5 it would be very welcome. Most of us are expecting a 5S type refresh which is to say a few internal changes but nothing major on the exterior very much like the 4 to 4S. But Apple could surprise us and really shake things up. My biggest wish would be for the speakers to move to the front of the phone like the HTC One. That really makes a big difference by no longer needing to cup your hands to...
As far as coverage, I agree with the previous poster that is a highly localized question.   I find that these two offer the best answer since they are user reported   http://www.sensorly.com   http://www.rootmetrics.com
  In the U.S. at least this will benefit Sprint the most by far once their network vision with multi-mode LTE advanced is complete by early to mid 2014. Since Sprint is the only carrier that will offer LTE on 3 separate bands I really had doubted Apple would support any band other than the one they currently support which is 1.9GHz. But if they can support all 3 and along with unlimited LTE I can see a lot of defectors from AT&T and Verizon wanting unlimited data as long...
If this is true this is easily the biggest news yet about the next iPhone. One iPhone to rule them all. The elusive rosetta stone that a few years ago was thought to be impossible is finally here. Not that the iPhone will get it exclusively, I am sure Qualcomm want to sell this to to any and all companies with cash in hand. But I really see this as helping Apple more than anyone else since now they will be able to be used on literally every single phone network in the...
This has nothing to do with a single Korean carrier. You are missing the big picture. More and more countries all around the world are adding LTE monthly. And there are far more variances in spectrum and bands than there ever was with 3G where a tri or quad  phone would allow you to talk on most of the networks around the world. Take a look at this list.   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_LTE_networks   So instead of Apple needing to make maybe a dozen different...
Apple would have needed to include a second CDMA radio like the S3 and some HTC phones to allow data and talking while not on wifi. There was nothing Verizon could do to turn this feature on since the iPhone lacked the hardware to allow for this.
