All you fanboys are making this "war" about YOU like it is so personal to YOU on which phone people enjoy the most. Do you see fanboys of different car manufacturers telling this person to stick to your favorite brand?

Arguing over phones is like a religion or politics to these people. Remember 10 years ago when Apple was still a niche brand? So even if they record losses next time, they are not going to go belly-up overnight. We get you don't like Apple or their fanbase, but who cares? That is not going to stop them from making money.

Apple and Google are not going away anytime soon. All this doom and gloom talk for each one is for insecure fanboys who can't afford them all.

comparing the samsung gallaxy s 2 with the iphone 4 is like comparing a MERCEDES BENZ S 65 AMG with a toyota corolla , wich one sells better of course the corolla , but wich one performs and gives you the ride of your life well you know wich one ...... biggest delusion in the history of electronics ... iphone ......

this is fake info,, at least for the ipod. Try multiplying the money with the number of ipods sold. The earnings come about 600$ more that the value of the ipod. Production cost of an apple device varies to 200$ in total while companies like t-mobile at&t get fucked really hard.

I am sorry for not being stupid but this apple bussiness is fucked up. Seriously. Iphone cant even considered to be a smartphone because it doesnt have real multitasking, a file manager,,,, things that even the oldest OS symbian has. People who buy apple products must be extremely stupid or easy to fall for ads or marketing strategies. When you ask a person why did you buy an iphone they say because its the best while they dont even have a fuckin clue. When you ask them is iphone4 4g capable they say yes.
Personally I buy only nokia/sony ericsson because these are the only brands tha deserve respect and loyalty not some iDIOTphone which loses signal and doesnt receive calls over 3g. Regards from europe

Can anyoane of you "fanboys", IOS or android please explain to me why you think that one or the other is better. And I really don't want to hear the talk of apple has more sales, or android is better because they have cheaper phones..etc.

Cant hear it anymore... Applefans are really sick and tell so much false info, that most other Applefans believe them and give it to others. iPhone doesnt even have one argument, which is really worth anything. Instes of talking your brainwashish, why dont you try to make iPhone look good, based on real and true facts, which actually matter, not like "So many people like it". Apple has no innovation, just design and people act like design is all thats important, doesnt matter, if they brainwash you, at least your phone looks so neat and nice ^^

> In reply to theaffidavit @ 2011-07-21 13:17 from ut3u - click to readfor example a survey done on iphone-4 users tells that
more than 15% of the people think that iphone-4 is
capable of 4G-network lol"

Even most smartphone user nowdays dont know what 3g mean, they just know they have internet connection in phone, average joe's buy smartphones and they don care to know about tech or tech words. Also many android users and rim users think they have 4g, many would think iphone have 4g because many use iphone 4G name, which is wrong.

"he ended up buying iphone-4 and i was shocked really .
(actually he isn't tech-geek , he knows nothing about OS
or what processors phones use) . i asked him the reason , and he replies this way " i went
to apple store and played with iphone4 sometime it felt
very classy and then i played with galaxy s2 .i felt it
plastic-cheap-phone and he said it wasnt as smooth as
iphone-4 at scrollings and moving across screens" and
itseems he liked games on iphone 4 so he buy it . i went nuts really because he don't want dual-core
phone o0 ."

I think you are the funny here, i understand your friend fully.

So why he should buy that dual core phone? If iphone 4 is smooth, fast and have a lot more quality games.

Where you need that dualcore because almost every heavy games comes for iphone first or ever and they all run smooth on iphone without dual core.

Because you can say your friends that you own dual-core phone and "know" about tech? Still you hardly can use it :)

"I find it so funny that 85% of iPhone user are arrogant and think the phone is the best thing in the world lol. You ruin it for the iPhone users who actually know things about phones... You lot are as bad as the old school Nokia fan boys lmao."

well i partly agree this because most of the people have no knowledge of what they buy .

for example a survey done on iphone-4 users tells that more than 15% of the people think that iphone-4 is capable of 4G-network lol .

apple does good marketing .

for example , my friend asked what phone to buy to get good multimedia and games , i said galaxy s2 or iphone 4 , he went to apple store and samsung store to see both phones .

he ended up buying iphone-4 and i was shocked really . (actually he isn't tech-geek , he knows nothing about OS or what processors phones use) .

i asked him the reason , and he replies this way " i went to apple store and played with iphone4 sometime it felt very classy and then i played with galaxy s2 .i felt it plastic-cheap-phone and he said it wasnt as smooth as iphone-4 at scrollings and moving across screens" and itseems he liked games on iphone 4 so he buy it .

i went nuts really because he don't want dual-core phone o0 .

the same way those ads and marketing and beautiful looking apple stores just attracts them and they buy it .

they only see outside the phone , they don't see whats inside lol . so they think that the phone they have is the best one because they bought it from a store having little bit bells and whistles and they think others are crap .

but when i see android users , most of them are aware of what they use because of different hardwares and price-points they enquire about the phone before they buy to choose which one to buy and get it finally .

iPhone - is the best thing in the world. I think it would be clear to you if you ever owned one. Looking at it online and comparing spec numbers across different phones is really a crappy way to make an opinion, moreover to brag about it.

it's not the best product. but is the most expansive (from normal mobiles wich can be seen in avarage on the street,in the malls, at normal people), the most beautiful and THE MOST WANTED. Everyone, but everyone, everytime take in their hand my iphone4 and:" woow,how beautiful, i can't afford such a mobile.",and that are people with nokia n8, samsung galahy, htc hd and other very good smartphones, not junks
