Pajson89, 01 May 2016iphone the copy catI wish apple get new model Iphone 7 looks the same to 6 so it will be good if I see different screen or whatever
technically they are all copying....it's what the technology field does....and TECHNICALLY they are all copying Alexander Graham Bell....as phones didn't exist before him
Waterproof....well Apple are fairly slow when it comes to competition! Yes I love Apple products however, IF this so called iPhone 7 is going to look like previous models then I would say that I'd go else where and part my money for something different! I'm on an iPhone 6...yes not the latest but it appears to me that Apple aren't bothered in giving their fans a boost so why should I bother parting with my hard earn cash! Oh no...I'm neither a Samsung fan so will try harder to look elsewhere i.e. Sony! 6, 6s and now 7 all look same! Zzzzzzz.....C'mon Apple!

Once Android matured and the hardware performance was acceptable, the freedom of not being locked out of the filesystem, customization of the interface, fonts and not being locked into itunes provided me with an ecosystem and experience which is much better than what is available with an iphone.

Windows has graced the smartphone world for over a decade, and it's also radically changed the most - from porting the Windows desktop experience onto a 240 x 320px screen on Windows CE / Pocket PC, to the overly simplistic Windows 8-10 versions we are being served these days.
I guess throughout all these years, Microsoft based its developments more around assumptions and following trends rather than testing consumer behaviour. Quite sad really, since to this day it still hasn't got the experience right. I wanted to throw my dad's 920 against a wall, that's how much it frustrated me.

The only things i was able to do in that phone without any issues is call, sms, social stuff like fb and whatsapp etc, camera(great camera!).... everything else was a hassle if not little troublesome (especially maps, which got worse after few months for some reason). All these could also have been just for me, i cant be certain...
But the point is, its a damn good OS for a newbie, but needs to evolve alot more nad sure it will....
Anonymous, 27 Apr 2016http://pokit.org/get/?b0496f28f1a9159ff8104be8662ac07e.jpgimpressive table... assuming its legit, iam glad that it supports all of my claims, although it misses out on few key ones.... first of all, numbers make sense only when you compare similar stuff. these 3 OSs are anything but similar. "quality of apps" is mentioned, but "feature set" isn't. Its common sense that a feature rich OS will be more instable, will drain battery faster, performance will be hit unless the specs are high enough, security will be harder to setup and so on.... But still, android is the most used mobile OS as of now, just like how windows is on the desktop platform bcoz its worth it for those you use it just like iOS is worth it for its users.... AGAIN, it comes down to personal preference...
I mean is it fair to compare a car with a 2litre engine and another with a 5litre engine? One will be fuel efficient while the other will be powerful, can you say which is the best objectively? (not saying, android is this and iOS is that, but just that there are different and built with different scope in mind).
K Sen, 27 Apr 2016wow, fancy words...you sound like a fanboy, if so have pride in admitting who you are mate....... moreSee, mature people can acknowledge a company's success and failures without labeling themselves or anyone a "fanboy".
I did say that Apple succeeded in the implementation, right? You saw my posts about the F505i in 2003 and its implementation of fingerprint tech? I know what I'm talking about and my posts aim to address every reader in this section, no matter which "camp" they're from, because I'll shut down an "Apple fanboy" as quickly as any other if they are talking crap.
And a lot of people here are talking crap.
But please, go on...
K Sen, 27 Apr 2016well said.... but did you ever stop to think that, the well designed ecosystem is what drives ... moreYep, and I agree with that also and never argued that. It's just that small competitive difference it does have over others, for some an advantage, for others not so much.
I was once use the first iPhone, at that time not many people in my country acknowledge the iPhone and now the iPhone has become one of the greatest. *wipetears
Vj14, 27 Apr 2016Ok, you are very annoying and dumb. Let's just ignore each other!kudos.... a very mature statement and a sensible reply... jeez, i wonder what iam gonna say to that :P
aussiehk, 27 Apr 2016Where iPhone "revolutionised" the fingerprint reader was purely in its implementation, not so ... morewow, fancy words...you sound like a fanboy, if so have pride in admitting who you are mate....
anyways, how apple integrated the fingerprint sensor like you said, is a true achievement, no denying that for sure.... Its like the final refined version of it and apple deserves the credit for that and that alone... lets not act like fanboys and boost as if apple invented the whole thing.
When an achievement is over rated, opposing fanboys start bashing and the war goes on :-/

The thing is, apple has a closed ecosystem, which for certain people is exactly what they prefer. But there are those who prefer an ecosystem that is compatible to others....essentially it comes down to personal preference...
Simple as that...
aussiehk, 27 Apr 2016Oh come one, get off the bandwagon of blaming everything on Apple. Like I said, ever well esta... moreLMAO, again, nobody can justify "exploiting" so well like you jsut did.... I dont recall blaming apple for anything else as of now, do you? :)
Assefa, 26 Apr 2016wow i didnt know that ok then, motorolla was the first smartphone to implement the fingerprint... moreWhere iPhone "revolutionised" the fingerprint reader was purely in its implementation, not so much the concept.
The finger-activated multi-functional home button fingerprint sensor had not existed like this on any device before. Fingerprint sensors were usually a separate, swipe-operated feature, but now Apple combined the home button and sensor in one, to integrate seamlessly into the existing customer experience.
That's the difference to the other players. The customer experience.
