The iPhone 5 launch received over five times more Twitter buzz than the Samsung Galaxy S 4 launch, according to Investing Analytics.

PiperJaffray analyst Gene Munster notes that this data illustrates the mass appeal Apple's handset still carries with the marketplace.

On the day of and day after their respective debuts, the iPhone 5 garnered 2.4 million tweets; whereas, the Samsung Galaxy S 4 only managed 440,000. Notably, this is an improvement for the company but it is still far from that of the iPhone.

"We believe this demonstrates that while interest in the Galaxy S 4 is growing, Apple continues to hold a meaningful lead as the smartphone with the broadest consumer appeal," Munster said.

Interestingly, 81% of tweets about the Galaxy S4 were positive compared to just 73% for the iPhone 5. This is thought to be due to leaks which left consumers unsurprised on launch day.

The wire connected to the Lightning plug is badly designed & breaks much too easily because the outer wire is made of Aluminum which has a low fatigue value! I broke three wires in just 3 weeks! Even though I was real careful because I knew the wire is badly designed!

Well, of course it did. One is a plastic piece of doggie doo-doo and one is the single best mobile device in the world. Duh! The HTC One is, similarly to the iPhone 5, beautifully crafted. No plastic shhit on the One.

and to your definition the iPhone up to the 3GS was non existend? i owned one iPhone 3G and i did like it. This hate against samsung is seriously nothing normal anymore. And as you can see plastic isnt an argument for hating the S4. (btw im an iPhone 4 owner so pls no arguing that im a fanboy or something). best regards littlea
