Get used to it PC World is becoming anti-iPhone. They posted a rating for the new iPod Touch but didn't for the iPhone 5. You have to go MacWorld for that rating.
If you think about it 30 million Galaxy SIII phones sold in 5 months isn't that much of an accomplishment when you consider how many overall Android phones are sold during that 5 months. The only reason it's seen as an accomplishment is because 90% of people who own an Android phone bought either a free or cheap phone. In comparison if Apple only sells 30 million iPhone 5's in 5 months, it would be seen as a failure to both Apple and Apple fan boys. The point being is when someone is willing to shell out at least $200 for a smartphone, 9 times out of 10 they're buying an iPhone.
I mean Android phones aren't bad to use as just a phone or if you wanna just buy a cheap phone. But come on who in their right mind would pay $200 for a virus ridden phone who's security updates are iffy and there are no guaranteed updates when you can pay $200 for an iPhone 5 and get guaranteed updates, literally no viruses and is the most secure OS? I mean even looking at the apps and games themselves the iPhone 5 wins that war.

And putting tablets aside, speaking only about smart phones right now...
The Apple iPhone is an ever smaller and shrinking portion of the Worldwide smart phone market, only 17% and shrinking. However they will likely always have strong support and growth from much of their loyal following for the foreseeable future, and that's a good thing.
However adoption is FAR higher for Android, triple+ the rate of iOS.
There is a strong trend of people switching from iOS to Android.
Android phones from dozens of makers [not just Samsung] with dozens of models and specs [not just the galaxy S3] run very wide price ranges. So there is always something for just about everyone’s budget.
Above are facts, below are opinions:
Say what you like about the Android OS, but I use all OSs and Android is clearly superior to iOS.
Security attack issues happen to the biggest targets. Always have and always will, and that evolves too. Why waste time going after a little fish when you can go after a big fish.
Summary, the iPhone is an excellent product, just not the best, and iPhones have become your grandmother’s cute little phone.

Then there's the whole nightmare of getting forced into a transition out of Mobile Me into iCloud. iCloud corrupted the Outlook data on my PC, and when I uninstalled it, my 4,000+ outlook contacts are corrupted, groups, teams, categories.
iPhone 5 ARE YOU KIDDING ME? i- anything.. not for this chick.

You do realize this is only one model of an android phone. IPhone had a short period where it was more useful than others, but that time is over. They will always have there following of people that think they are some sort of status symbol as has always been the case for apple products.
Yes, I have always thought people that used apple products were far superior than everyone else. (sarcasm)

Yes, I have been forced out of MobileMe and into iCloud - and I have yet been able to figure out what happened. All I know is - my MobileMe 100 per year fee, which I have paid since 2005, stopped about 2 years ago. Since then, I have enjoyed 4 times the storage AND added 2 iPads and iPhone - each of which had the nerve to ask me 2 questions - and then all of my devices are in sync - email, texts, iTunes, music, calendar, bookmarks - geez, I can't imagine it being any simpler.
I recall one analyst bullish on Apple - 'Apple will continue to make HUGE inroads into the enterprise market, because people just don't realize how well their devices work together. When they do, it's lights out for the competition.'
