Apple should have waited until their app was perfect before releasing it. Nevermind the fact that you need user generated data from millions of people in thousands of different locations all over the world to perfect a mapping platform. I truly believe had Apple's small team of 5 engineers and 8 software developers been willing to put in 24 hr shifts years at a time, partaking in hiking, boating, driving, flying, skiing, and hovercrafting all over the planet, this would...
You don't have to pretend anything. Just walk right into wherever they sell Android phones in Canada and buy one. It's really that simple.
I don't have any problems with Apple maps and think Apple made the right decision. I say good riddance to Google maps and I know I won't miss it. Bring on the future!!!
Silly argument. How can you say I preferred google maps? How many other mapping systems are out there outside of google maps that people use on a daily basis(there are over 13,000 on the app store alone)? Apple hasn't elminated the competition. Google is free to produce their own mapping application. Ego? You don't think Apple knows this is their first iteration of maps?
Preach on, brother!
Gathering user generated data is how you perfect a mapping application, and I think Apple made the correct choice to do it now rather than later. People who claim Apple could have done this 'in-house" are out of touch with reality - Thus the notion of waiting to release it until it was "perfect' is just foolish.   Like all hard decisions, Apple will take this one on the chin, and in the end, a more capable and user-friend app will emerge.
The consensus is that performance matters, not specs. Which also happens to be what this benchmark validates. You have a Dual core processor besting Quad cores and giving credence to what I've said all along: If your OS and hardware are optimized specs shouldn't matter.   Adding a quad core processor doesn't cover up your insufficiencies... When Apple runs circles around you with a dual core processor, it highlights them.   Imagine what Apple could do with a quad core...
If this is not setting the bar, I don't know what is. Think about it for a second. Compared to the Android "elite", the iPhone 5 is under-spec'd, yet still bests them in performance.   When winning the spec race is more important than winning the performance race, you've already lost.
Download the 'Fake iPhone 5 Launcher' and compare your Nexus to the iPhone 5... lol
Cool! What's it mean performance wise?
