I know a lot of iphone fans, and they certainly know the difference between an Android, and what it can do, and the iphone 4 and what it can't.
I have never heard in my life, of someone on here telling us a true story, or giving an example of an Apple "sheep". It seems to be some sort of myth that fanboys make up, to make them feel better about the iphone outselling most handsets.

the league of extraordinary OS:

- iOS5, Android, Symbian, Windows 7

We just need to be satisfied on what sort of handset we are using,to give satisfaction..to make us smile while playing games, talking to our love ones, exploring via internet.

Operating systems are important YES!

but the battery, the life span and the durabily is the MOST IMPORTANT.

He can only get Nokia rumours correctly. Once Nokia goes so does Eldar.

Maybe it's Apple's turn to get sued...

Talk about "blatantly copying".

If you remain grounded, and don't listen to the sensationalism, you begin to understand that Apple never claim that their features are new, just repackaged. It's clever business.

Apple is a big company and i love to as what they have brought to the world...but too much off hype i cant stand along with it. Too much of chocolate is not good for your teeth.... thats all i want to say to apple and thier fankids.

There's no Samsung vs Apple battle going on, it's just posturing, with lawyers.

> In reply to iPhone Freak @ 2011-06-06 17:34 from ftZ3 - click to readHey I phone Freak... You talk about copying and making it better(android). Probalbly you are not aware that the new IOS5 they have copied everythng from android. Notifications, Live Widgets, Dedicated camera during lock mode. Infact even the OTA facility. If you think apple is so good then y to copy. Dont take me wrong.. I aint trying to diminish i phone but just defending android like the way you do for apple. Like i said...i would like to re-iterate myself..... I dont hate apple. I just hate them of doing too much of thier hype... whenever they sense a fear of any manufaturer getting better( not getting close but better) they try to sue them. Do you know even after suing samsung for thier patents they still purchased stuffs worth 5.7 billions and samsung didnt denied them... cause they beileve in healthy competition( so what if products purchased are by them) and not a monopoly....
Thanks for reading and i hope you will definately reply back strong.... :)

There's nothing earth shattering there. Notifications are a significant improvement (Android fans will no doubt claim Apple are copying Google, shuch irony there), and I like the idea of integrated Twitter. iMessage is also very interesting, but surely everyone who owns an iphone now uses Whatsapp, which is very good across different platforms?

I suppose it will be popular in the US.

My freinds,Apple is no revolutionary,First thing of all the screen,the hardware is not made by them,Samsung produces them,camera eighter sony(if not wrong) so as you can see they revolutionize nothing,When they will build theyr own hardware then i would say "they revolutionized something",until then shut the F UP!
aND OFCOURSE IOS is bit smoother cause has no effects,it's simple as a brick! and super boring scrolling through icons "WOOW THAT SO AWESOME!!!! ". Video call?pfff uselless if you cannot call on computers and share your moments with dear ones. Have any of you seen Google I/O?seen what android brings?seen theyr future plans? well that si revolutionary Google TV and Google Home.
