pag1107: So the largest company in the world has failed epically by having a band people have heard of play at its press event. Holy crap. If that's all you can find to biatch about then you're as blind as a horses ass. The iphone is a steaming pile. My wife has an iphone 4 and I hate its little electronic guts. It was inferior to my galaxy 1 that was already a year old. Sure it looked pretty, but when it came to actually doing stuff with it, my model-year-old samsung phone had it beat. I'm sure fanbois can thoroughly debunk my analysis with a discussion of superior pixel depth or color palettes or icon and app prettyness but when it comes to having a phone to do real world work that doesn't drop calls constantly and can't be battery-pull rebooted when it's glorious little apps brick it, the iphone sucks butt.


My Galaxy S1 was a total piece of shiat. I would have taken my wife's iPhone 4 over it any day, no hesitation. The S3 I have now is great though.

My Galaxy S1 had some issues under the hood (data speed, anyone?), but several things made it hands down better than iPhone for me. Swype. Free apps. Rooting ease.

Really? Maybe you're just farking retarded?

My phone never drops calls, I only use a hand duo of apps because I don't need them and don't collect worthless things like a digital pack rat, and don't give a shiat about your phone? Mine has been a reliable work phone, good calls in metro areas (Dallas, downtown) non metro (Lancaster) and BFE west easy north Texas. Same for texting.

Data sucks though. I don't use the camera and have found the touch screen adequately responsive when clean, dirty, and in between. Dripping sweat on the screen will bugger it though. Either from fingers or from ears.

I have a 2 year old 4 that has been used and abused.

It's just a hunk of electronics, stop wetting yourself to prove how damn special you are for hating it. It doesn't make you any more special than the people who wet themselves over having one.

It was extremely stupid of me to assume that the article was going to be about how Apple sold out by neglecting to innovate with their newest phone, knowing full well that they would still make a killing anyway.

Well, that person isn't that far off. They're one of the only major bands left that play their instruments. There are plenty of guys underneath the surface that still know how.

Steve Jobs -was- Apple. It failed without him, he came back, it succeeded. Now he's gone again, and you can already see the dust and pebbles falling.
There is not one thing that is "breakthrough" or innovative about the iPhone 5. All they've done is caught up to where Android was 18 months ago. What Apple still has though is marketing and the name. Through just name recognition alone, people believe that they're on the cutting edge, just because it's new.

What is innovative? The LTE? The Galaxy SII was LTE before the iPhone 4S even came out (android is now on the Galaxy S3, which buries the S2 even). The bigger screen? The Dell Streak did that years ago. The resolution isn't even as high now as the leading Android phones. The software is incredibly dated looking. No functionality on the home screen. Just static images.

I'm really surprised you're not on the inside scoop with the talk of the town this year. Read the comments on any iPhone 5 article on the engadgets and gizmodos of the internet. Everyone is talking about: the Nokia Lumia 920, the flagship Windows Phone 8 device.
While Apple is still trying to sell resolution, Nokia has now moved on to refresh rate. The 920 will have wireless charging, whereas the Apple CEO says that wireless charging is "confusing".

Nokia and Android are leading the way, iPhone is now playing catch up. And they're failing at it. Sales will still be strong, but it won't be what it was. Mix in Apple's very unethical business practices, and you have a recipe for a decline of yet another empire.

I'm a Mac user, an iPhone user, and have used mostly Apple computers since my family bought our first computer, an Apple //c, in 1984. And if I ever met this dude walking down the road, I WOULD pop him in the face, and tell him to STFU, hipster fanboy douchebag. It's a farking computer/ telephone. Use what suits you best, and shut up about it.

Personally I find wireless charging stupid, at least right now. You have to lie your phone still in one spot. That's every bit as useful to me as just plugging it in.

Eventually, I suspect there will be wireless charging systems that work over range, and so it would charge anywhere in your house, or car, for example. That would be useful. Right now, I just can't make myself give a crap.

Still, the Lumia 920 looks awesome, and it's definitely on my shortlist of "phones to play with before my next purchase."

See, I don't WANT a huge farking brick of a phone. I want something that fits in my hand and pocket comfortably. The giant 5" screen things are a step back, in my opinion. And the widgets on the home screen? My wife uses an android phone. I don't remember the model, exactly, but it's a higher- end, well- rated Motorola, and it annoys me. I like being able to hit a button, go to the home screen, and tap the app I want to use, without digging around. If I want the functionality that the widgets provide, I'll pull down notification center. It stays out of the way until I want it. I also like not needing to charge my phone twice a day. My wife and I use our phones about equally, and while I have battery remaining when I plug my phone in for the night, she has to swap out her battery with the extra one she carries around. I still get all day out of the original battery in my 2 year old iPhone 4. That's not to say Apple does everything right. For example, I like to keep everything on my phone, including pictures. So a memory card slot would be nice.
But my point is this: some of the things your Android does that the iPhone doesn't aren't necessarily better- they're different ways of doing things. Like I've said before, I'll use what I like, you use what you like, and we'll all be happy.

Another thing: people that biatch about fragility regarding the iPhone 4 and 4S also need to shut up. Why would you purchase ANY $300 device to carry around and NOT put it in a case? I'm an auto mechanic. And I'm clumsy. My phone gets dropped on concrete, used with oily fingers, gets crap sprayed at it, tumbles down stairs, and generally abused every single day. It's in a simple Otterbox Commuter series case (their thinner one) and has no cracks or other signs of damage. Prior to my first iPhone, a 3, I never had a phone make it more than a year. The 3 finally broke for good RIGHT before the 4 came out- I had to fix it a couple times in the last 6 months, and yes I did so myself-(so it made it 2 years,) and my 4 is going strong- I opened it up once to clean out a bunch of dirt, lint, and crap that was muffling the sound, etc- (2 years again)

This is my phone. 4.3" screen. Still kicks ass.

The beautiful thing about Android is that, whatever you want, somebody makes it. Want a gigantor phone? You got it. Want something a little more pocketable? You got it. Want something with a hard keyboard? You got it. Want a phone with two screens? You got it. Want a phone that powers a tablet shell? You got it.

Give me a break. Sure, if durability is important, there are always options to improve it, but that doesn't change the fact that having a glass back was a really farking stupid design decision that was made for purely aesthetic reasons and resulted in a whole lot of headaches.

I'm more addressing the passing of an era, and the fact that people don't realize that Apple is behind now. I couldn't care less who uses what. It just bothers me to see articles in USA Today or whatever saying how they nailed it, and how it's so innovative, etc.

This reminds me of some douchebag who complained when the iPod (the old white ones) went USB and how it meant that "all these filthy Windows users" were going to infest his "private club".

I buy some Apple products because I like them. Not because they define my social status or give me the illusion of being in some club. But I'm not a fanboy of anything.

That's all great. You can get any type of Android phone you want. But if you get the hardkeyboard, do you then make fun of the one's who don't? I mean, your point seems to be that one can get whatever he or she wants. But what if her or she simply wants an Apple? Why make fun of them any more that you would make fun of someone who got a Samsung instead of an HTC? What if I want a closed system because I like knowing that every app I download has been vetted by Apple? What if I like the iPhone because it does everything that *I* need a phone to do for *my* needs? Why hate on that? I couldn't care any less what type of phone you use. I really couldn't.

I want a band that reflects the image of Apple that was cemented in my brain over the last decade, so I don't have to be reminded of the company Apple has become.

I love my Galaxy Note. It's perfect for me. My girlfriend thinks it's an idiotically large phone. I don't care :)

The biggest money-maker for Apple is the accessories they sell for their products. This is precisely the reason why they changed the power port on the new iPhone5 so they resell all the shiat people already have for their iPhone4s.

Ed Grubermann: This reminds me of some douchebag who complained when the iPod (the old white ones) went USB and how it meant that "all these filthy Windows users" were going to infest his "private club".

I buy some Apple products because I like them. Not because they define my social status or give me the illusion of being in some club. But I'm not a fanboy of anything.


Apple users did similar things when Instagram was made available for Android... All the more reason I enjoy mocking them.

Greek: And the widgets on the home screen? My wife uses an android phone. I don't remember the model, exactly, but it's a higher- end, well- rated Motorola, and it annoys me. I like being able to hit a button, go to the home screen, and tap the app I want to use, without digging around.


Open the app drawer, long press on the app, drag it to the desktop to make a short cut, quit your biatching. :D

Oh and if her phone has ICS, drag the shortcut onto another one and you get a folder automagically.

UrCa: It's paying $300 for a pair of name brand jeans that don't fit you well. We're glad and all that you're happy with it but kinda think you're an idiot for it too.


Kind of a bad analogy, because the iPhone fits me very well.

sure haven't: fortheloveofgod: sure haven't: It just bothers me to see articles in USA Today or whatever saying how they nailed it, and how it's so innovative, etc.

Why? What difference does it make to you? Are you on some global mission to spare the world from (what you believe) are exaggerated press claims? Or does it worry you that someone might read it and then think that you are using an inferior phone and that would make you feel bad? I'd really like to hear why you care so much.

Because it means people are being incredibly stupid, and that bothers. And it should bother you too.

That and I really dislike Apple's business ethics. They're a terrible company and don't deserve the accolades they get.


I thought according to Farkers, ALL companies are terrible? If people being stupid bother you so much, your life must suck from all the worry, as pretty much all of the general population are stupid.
