Jealousy is rather an ugly quality... If non iPhone users are happy without one don't try and persuade yourself you don't actually want one by putting down others who do have one

Most reliable yet breakable? That's just about the most inconsistent conclusion about anything. Ever.

I could take this opportunity to rant about the iPhone, but people still flock to buy them. I'd be flogging dead sheep....

It's an application called Fring, not FaceTime. I suspect both devices need Fring for it to work, so the issues are pretty similar to FaceTime, and as I said with ordinary videocalling both pieces of software would be redundant.

another apple loving report. surely if you are comparing all htc phones to apples then 3gs and 4 shopuld be grouped together and thus having a higher malfunction rate. good one guys

> In reply to [deleted post]No but i do use my phone to help run my successful IT business and the iPhone just couldn't cope when I used the 3G so it went.

Android and replaceable battery for me any day of the week.

To me, you are nothing more than a typical iPhone user who can not see the phone has faults and isn't for everyone.

No one can deny that gaming is an important part of smartphone strategy now. Nintendo has admitted that Apple is their biggest threat, not Sony.

Even WP7 highlighted games in their launch, which in my opinion is stronger than Android's potential.

Gaming on smartphones are here to stay, and will be an important component to be considered by the smartphone companies.

Even Android want a piece of the pie hence there lame attempt (remember you used the word) at a deal with Sony in actually getting some decent games for Android as it is lame to play games on your mobile nobody will be buying that ugly and mean truly ugly old designed handset then.
I wouldn't say that I only use my phone to play games but I do have a few on there.

ok... my motorola milestone literally went berserk and retired itself upon my reading this post. sometimes i really ponder the seemingly mutual exclusivity of technology and practicality/usability.
damn it.

Just bring a screwdriver and your spare battery if you're on a camping trip.
