YodaBlues: weave: Meh, I have them both (Verizon on new iPad, AT&T on my iPhone 5) and I find them pretty even.The one difference that really pissed me off about Verizon on iPad is, they don't allow one to buy international travel on it unless you are also a regular contract customer -- ie, not just buying data on the device.With my older AT&T iPad if I went overseas I could just pre-buy a bucket of data to use on it.Don't believe that? Go into a Verizon iPad with cellular and try and buy an international data package.ReferenceBecause Verizon uses cdma, which is pretty much US only. the rest of world uses gsm. your Verizon iPad lacks the necessary radio for overseas use.
TonyDanza: Animatronik: its hard to understand phone snobbery, if the other phones were crap, logically no one would buy them,I would say most people that have a preference don't honestly believe the "other" phone is crap, it's just not really as good as their choice, and tbh, for some people the reasons they have to like "their" phone can be totally legit, and for them "their" phone actually may be better. I personally go with Android, and will never get an iPhone as long as you have no option to throw in more memory, or be able to swap a battery when needed.because smartphones have been around for years now and ppl arent that stupid.Errr...yeah, they are.
steamingpile: Sooooo what area do you live in that has Verizon 4g but no att 4g?LTE is in every major city for ATT and unless you live in one of those you aren't getting LTE. Not even Verizon gives real LTE in a lot of areas, they just prep towers with the hardware.
Surool: I can see from the "Stopped reading right there" comments that the local droid users missed the best quote in the article:"Most Android users never caught on (to their phones not using real LTE), as after all it's merely a platform for those geeks whose whose sense of self worth revolves around hating Apple, and those mainstream buyers who don't have the any clue what they're buying."nailed it

Some folks like me use Android because they like it better,and would use iOS if it were the only game in town. iOS is Ok, I used to havea Touch and Im not an Apple hater./the point being that someone is better painted with his own brush,if his sense of self worth requires that he defend his favorite company in such a manner...
Surool: but seriously.
Surool: Weird, because I've seen days of non-stop Apple attacks and Android phone spec circle jerks on a fairly regular basis. I've used the same phone for 3.5 years, it runs the most current OS and has yet to fail me in any way... but Apple!Nice of you to jump in as the alleged reasonable droid user, but seriously.
avalanche: FTFA: sorry Android users, your iPhone ripoffs are still stuck in 2009 and you got played by the salesgeekStopped reading right there.
Surool: I'd like to thank you all for proving the point ever so perfectly.
kyuzokai: I'll overlook the rabid iPhone love, since there's just no convincing some people, but the stuff about 4G LTE made my brain hurt. I know AT&T has "faux G" as the author described, but a simple speed test would show you that Verizon's 4G LTE is wicked fast. I consistently get 18 Mbps to 35 Mbps, and have since my first 4G phone (Galaxy Nexus).
Dokushin: Also, this guy has a mac.com email address -- that's a domain that Apple owns. He might be a little more directly in their pocket.
Aldon: There is one thing that has followed me with at&t bill I have ever received (in the last 20+ years). Eventually (sooner than later) they will bill you for something that they shouldn't.
RAWISRADFORD: Dokushin: Also, this guy has a mac.com email address -- that's a domain that Apple owns. He might be a little more directly in their pocket.While your assumption might be true - the use of the Mac.com domain is not proof./ You could probably find thousands of people here on fark with a Mac.com email address.// Mac.com is a relic of apples suite of online tools (still have mine)
Droog8912: avalanche: FTFA: sorry Android users, your iPhone ripoffs are still stuck in 2009 and you got played by the salesgeekStopped reading right there.Same. I installed a FF addon (BlockSite) specifically to stop giving any traffic to the Examiner after the non-stop links from there. The rampant douchebaggery in that article got me to add a second website. Congratulations on the trolling, I guess.
