shiate: Marine1: They need somethin', that's for sure. Apple hasn't done anything innovative in quite a while.hmm, ok, i'll bite. what has samsung done that's innovative?
Mikey1969: They also don't have an app drawer, your apps have to be on one of your screens
tbhouston: as someone that use to work retail, i would push apple on anyone under 14 and anyone over 40 because i knew they would be able to use the device, wouldn't return it and would think they are being edgey and cool...those are not the cool age brackets
RexTalionis: The iPhone user became decidedly less cool when it became the phone that your parents want.
theurge14: For the last farking time, it's not about "being cool". It's about having something that works exceptionally well. Yes, there are always the handful of idiots who really do think it's just about a status symbol, but the rest of us are glad to use a product that doesn't suck balls in some major way. Brand loyalty is built up over time when the whole "doesn't suck balls" thing is discovered to be true for a number of different products.These "tech reporters" who write click-gathering articles like this aren't getting it. "Cool factor" is not only factor here, or even the major one. Otherwise all the products listed would've been chucked away and rejected by people long ago. iPods have been around for 12 years now. iPhone has been around for 6 and more or less looks about the same. The current Macbook form factor has been around for about 7 years. Same with the iMac line. "Cool factor" doesn't apply to that sort of timeline.
Endive Wombat: I was honestly considering an iPhone, but when I held it side by side with the other phones on the market, I just could not do it. The main reason I stuck with Android was because of screen size. To me at least, the iPhone screen is comically small by comparison to most of the other offerings out there running Android or Windows OSs. I ended up getting the Note 2 and love it. I will not go back to something smaller.
