Apple iPhone 4S mania continues: 1M preorders in first 24 hours  - read the full textNot that we had any doubt of the iPhone 4S market prospects, given that iOS fans had to wait 16 months for an upgrade, but the latest numbers provided by Apple are simply stunning. It turns out that 1 million pre-orders were placed in the first 24 hours after the 4S page went live in the Apple...

Dont bother bashing Samsung either because too many companies rely on them to get their hardware... if apple makes money so does Samsung.

Yet with that in mind blinded preached how it was better then anything out there and that is what makes up 90% of Iphone users and is where the the majority of the android iphone wars on here start. Aside from the atrocious illegal actions of Apple. haha

He didn't know all the features of his phone, and did not have an up to date picture of the smartphone landscape? I am appalled. Good thing you did not release the name and address of this person, oh my god.

In the mean time, there is starvation, wars, bad economy and other little things that you might want to focus your attention on. Not everyone is a rocket scientist, and not everyone knows the full features of Android or WP7 or even some dumbphones either.

Chill, and you will probably avoid the heart attack that is somewhere in your future if you keep this up.

In the length of my message I forgot a couple things. From everthying I said it is not to be assumed by all of you who seem to love assuming, twisting and misreading so much...That there are not the same kind of people out there for any other phones ie se, samsung, nokia, lg, so on and all other electronics.

The point is how many more it seem to be with Apple. Mainly Iphone and Ipad.

I have done plenty of bashing and arguing. In the end like I said I don't hate the Iphone and it works decently. What gets me is everywhere I turn is someone has one and majority don't realy know much about it or any other phone. Yet they still think it's the best just because they were told and it's what they have. AGAIN NOT TO SAY THATS ALL OF THEM! What usually gets me to that point is all those users getting on every forum, surrounding me daily in the real world, and posting on everything that everything sucks, is an iphone copy, and that iphone has and always will be best. It urks me. lol.

One of the recent situations (in the physical world) was me talking to someone who had an I4 and he refered to the droid as the droid as the entire platform and everyone was only one device. he told me how it was so much better. I told him many points of both and mainly only said good things about the iphone like the fact that even though its shorter and had an lcd that it was still slimmer the gs1 which was very slender. and stuff. He knew nothing about any of it. His reasons for the Iphone being better was because it had thread texting and he could listen to music while texting....Antient phones can do that. He had just come from a crappy phone never having a nice on and never used a smart phone before...In his shoes it would epic I understand, but he knew nothing. Then he played a song and said not the loudest but best quality speakers on any mobile...I dont think thats Samsung or Apples feature thank you. Then he said its just better and after I told him everything about android and the galaxy he said there are phones that play videos better but thats all they do. He didn't have the foggiest idea of what he was talking about or doing and these are the people that make up majority of Iphone users and posts around places like this and that is whats o upsetting to us! Not to mention apple stealing tech and claiming it and trying to sue everyone. They even got away with photoshopped evidence. And I never once said anything about it being funny Jobs died. I didnt like him much yet i made an fb post on how i wasnt a big fan but he was an important innovator who worked very hard til the end and will be remembered for decades to come.

Also whoever thinks Android is hard to use is severily misguided. I would have to say both Ios and Android would be equally as easy if it werent for some of the caps and setup of Ios. With Android every last single thing you need can be one tap away. I believe this is slightly less true with Ios. Now a jailbroken Iphone is fairly on par with Galaxy phones, but in my opinion still slightly behind, but not by much.

Ok then.... I don't normally like this, but let's just see since you are a noble fella, and soo principled, whether you will change your mind after this:

1. Microsoft, HP, Samsung, Acer, Logitech, Asus all shamed because of prison like conditions of workers:

Apple is a favorite as it is a great target for media. This is a China thing, not an Apple thing. By the way, Apple has voluntary internal audits and have forced Foxconn to integrate a lot of improvements for the workers. Have you read of similar from Samsung? Will you now give up smartphones after reading this? Somehow I believe the answer is no.

2. Samsung engages in fraud, is corrupt and silences critics:

Reading the above, do you think all the 'noble' SGS2 users will now move to LG or HTC? Something tells me no.

I work and earn money just like everybody else, that is why when I buy gadgets, I don't limit my options to one brand, and hate all others. I research and find out which serves me best, and gives me the most value for money. For now, that is iPhone, as I love gaming as well, it is a great all round phone, no I don't bluetooth files all day long, and I appreciate the battery life compared to other smartphones.

Lastly, while I enjoy the iPhone very much, I in no way feel that you have to buy an iPhone too. You are free with your choice, so no need to infringe on my right to enjoy mine.

Peace.
