Sounds like Apple paid you to write this story. Have you all tried KitKat lately?
If they paid me, I sure don't have the money to show for it. Bye.
Jump ship to iPhone and have a downgrade? Thanks but NO thanks!
Err no. I have used both. Felt restricted on iphone. I can use any rom I want on my android, and there are many. Trouble with Android phones is, they are not supported long enough with new firmwares officially.
The jailbreak community for ios is huge so they have you covered for almost any tweak. Roms included.
unstable apps from 10% of developers...for anything that you need an app for, there are 100 to choose from to get the job done and most of them are all free. if an app is unstable, uninstall, try a new one or alternatively you could pay for an app the first time round. from experience, it takes 3 tries max. simplify smartphone usage? you mean having no added options to explore your expensive device to do as you please thats just like everybody elses out there? thats the whole point of customization, to make the phone comfy for your individual needs. its not mandatory for everyone to change the default settings anyways. heck, it took Apple right up to the iphone 5 to add mp3s as ringtones by default and not having to by an app for it. really? coz setting an mp3 as a ringtone is way too much customization on any device. keep up with current trends...so u admitting that owning an iphone is more about status than what it does better than other devices on the market. not to mention, if you already own a number of apple devices you pretty much stuck in their web. not all movie files play well with them...unless you BUY an app. better selection of apps...erm no. thats the joy of open source. for every app thats pay for only, you have an equally good app thats free and has ads. dont like ads, buy the app. what do i think you ask...you shouldve asked apple to read this article and sponsor you some cash for doing their type of PR work. edit: you fail to mention the things where apple really shines...like build quality of premium devices, longer support for older devices, the ecosystem they created...stuff that really couldve counted in apples favour.
Apple is like a dictator. they are like communists.
Perhaps but Google is no better and I am an Android user.
Uhhh! Simple answer is No.
iPhone is less of another ship and more of an Iceberg
Why would I want an OS that doesn't allow me complete control? The only people I know personally that likes iOS are absolutely terrible at problem solving with software and need all those restrictions in place to prevent them from screwing up their device.
My 5S is jailbroken and is customized to hearts content.
I'm great at problem solving and I prefer iphone over android all day every day.
If we are bringing mods/hacks into this then I would just go with the hardware that has the best price/performance ratio. Android while more open is a mess but there are cleaner things out there to replace it with for those with the will to do so.
Why would I? Android OS is far superior than the iOS.
I now the feel bro :)
Itunes... I don't care to muck up my pc up with it. Plug and play is what it should be.
You can always add more memory.
USB really does mean USB, it's amazingly non-proprietary.
No, I like to be able to do what I want and how I want with my smart phones and tablets. I don't want to be using softwares like itunes for everything. If I want songs or videos, I should be able to plug it into a computer and simply copy and paste it over. No need to convert videos or music to certain file format to be able to play or set as a ring tone. Android developers are getting really creative with their ROM's and I'd like to be able to flash the latest and greatest ROM's as well. A lot of people don't have the luxury of getting a new phone each year. So with a clodse and restricted platform like the iPhone, I would rather get a great android smart phone and at least have the option of changing the icons, fonts, layout, basically anything to the look and feel of the phone to keep things fresh.
Jump ship from Android to apple?.. Fuck no!, why would I do that?.. iPhone or iDevices are stuck at one specs, now innovations, whatsoever.. The iPhone 6 was just announced and guess what, it is stil equipped with dual core at underrated 1.4Ghz clockspeed. Whereas their competitors are now enjoying the latest CPUs from ARM like Qualcomm with whooping 2.5Ghz chips.
Can I simply copy videos into iPhone and watch them from the get go? Then no.
It gets me these people who are pulling a £600 Iphone out, but when you ask them to borrow it to make a quick call, they have no credit. Or these idiots who say i cant get a signal but yet you are stood at the side of them with a really old Nokia phone on the same network with 4 bars just to prove a point. Its the same with the macbook , my nephew was preaching about it the other day, saying how great it was and that it cost 2 grand etc , anyway he come around my place with it and cut a long story short he didnt even know how to unrar/unzip something. Priceless It is quite clear that Apple products are very expensive food for sheep, and the bottom line is Android destroys IOS because of the simple fact that you aint locked in, but then again sheep dont seem to mind being locked in a square field as long as they are being fed the Apples.
I have a MacBook Pro 2009 and it still runs like brand new. I'm know sheep. I like what I like. It's funny that M$ changed their format to try an be like apple. You know apps and that tile thing. http://www.businessinsider.... Yep looks like a lot of sheep out there.
Uh nope, to busy loving my ZTE Nubia Z7('! ') Sorry androids been there done that already.
nope. i'm jumping ship from iphone to android. after years of iphone, enough is enough. my contract expires end of January and Sony Xerpia Z3 is next.
Not because of that but it is a nice addition. I already got PS Vita for remote play
I'm getting a Z3, coz I just got a PS4, remote play FTW!
