Sun, 10 Oct 2011Recently, Gsmarena presented a poll in witch about 90% of iphone users said they remain loyal ... moreThat is true, but recent various polls also pointed out that many Android users were considering the switch to iPhone, around one-third to be precise. This is surprising, assuming android is all powerful like the fanboys say, why would they (Intelligent android users), make the switch to the oh-so-inferior iOS?
Wow 1,000,000 pre-orders I wonder haw many will return those phones under buyer's remorse.
Recently, Gsmarena presented a poll in witch about 90% of iphone users said they remain loyal to it...they are upgrading now to iphone 4s,so the numbers aren't really that surprising...I think there is also to some level an emotional responce by the public in regard to Steve Jobs' death...But the big question is if Apple without Jobs, will be as succesfull...
[deleted post]why do you say stupid, why do you say supporting steve jobs? your comment is non logical, maybe people that are buying the 4s is because we truly love iphone and everything it does, from its simplicity to its reliability. people who buy iphones are not brainwashed, ask any iphone user how he liked his phone and he will say he loves it, so that word spreads to a new user. Iphone is amazing, ya the design is the same, whos to say that the iphone 4 design was ugly?
the design won iphone design of the year, pure glass, stainless steel, how much more better can they make? 3.5 inch screen is more than enough, making a 4.3 inch screen targets a certain group of people where not everyone wants a big phone.
So stop the hating, and just start appreciating.
[deleted post]Seriously, I've been using the Galaxy S2 for four months now and right now I'm thinking of going back to iOS with the iPhone 4S once it becomes available in my country. I really did tried hard to like the Android ecosystem (in which some aspects are really good) but with all the bugs, FC's and crashes I've been through, I really don't think that Android would be a phone OS I can rely on. I came from an iPhone and had "upgraded" to the Galaxy S2 because I was excited about the specs. In the end I learned the hard way, SPECS don't really matter when your software is BUGGY and not OPTIMIZED. When I used my iPhone before, apps rarely crash but when they do, the system/OS is still usable and I can just open the app again. With android, to date I have more than 10 crashes most of which needs a restart. The most prominent crash would be that a certain apk has been terminated and I can't go back to the home screen or the app drawer. Pressing the back button would only open system apps like messages and contacts. Even the camera app is buggy for photos and videos (problems with focus and exposure no matter how many times I tried different combinations of settings, aside from the FC's), the photos oftentimes turn out soft. Sometimes the videos have orientation problems especially on HD. Some apps are still lacking in the market and while others have Android counterparts they're not necessarily equal in usability and function. Take for example the UStream app. I had videos using my old iPhone 3G back in the days live streaming on our events and stored on my UStream account. When compared to the videos I streamed recently, the videos recorded by my SGS2 looked like a scratched dvd with all the freezes plus the audio quality is unbearable, despite both using the same wi-fi of the same venue. Even if I can enjoy the features of the SGS2, the battery life is just poor. That's why I keep saying (and I hope Samsung listens), why upgrade to a speedier processor or one with more cores plus all the bells and whistles if the phone can't even last decently with the current spec (which are already good enough if only the software is optimized)? And I hope Google will polish up Android with ICS. The settings are all over the place, the buttons are somewhat confusing, the new Android Market is slow and even more buggy. But what do I care, Samsung may not be even thinking of releasing the ICS update officially via Kies for SGS2 even by the end of this year. Talking about Kies, it's far worse than iTunes. Software functionality, reliability, and ease of use (which truly works) is what matters most.
Anonymous, 10 Oct 2011I agree, android fans are jealous! And for sure almost of all them are samsung's. Anyway, wh... moreWhy are other brand buyers jealous? I bought a Samsung because it ticked all the right boxes for me,if I'd wanted an iPhone I'd have bought one instead of the Galaxy S.I can have any phone I want,so how does this make me jealous of ones I choose not to won?
so yer at least £45 a month in the uk for a frankly average phone dont get me wronk iits an ok phone but when you can get likes of gs2 or sensation of £30 a month why would you buy i phone
[deleted post]No dude.. NOKIA isn't dead.. Haven't u heard "when the cat is away, the mice will play".. :P
yellow, 10 Oct 2011iphone 3g got software updates till 2010..that is 2 years after its release android phones suc... morenot factually correct, but even if it was, the difference is that iPhone users pay a premium for their handset, whilst most Android handsets are free. So while iPhone users can upgrade their software they would have to pay for an upgrade to get a new handset with the latest software, Android users can get a new phone with the latest hardware and software for free.
Nabero, 10 Oct 2011I am a great admirer of Steve Jobs and his creations. I am planning to buy a MacBook. But I do... moreiPhone lacks charm, user frienliness and style??? Surely you are another guy who never owned an iPhone... All the features for which you are going for 701 is crap except for the NFC... So maybe you need to reconsider your decision...
no wonder iphone WAS a great and truely revolutionary handset when it came out, but now its more like a style thing, just like buying a LV bag, now spending that money dont make sense other than just showing off. And for the people saying that android users cannot afford an iphone, let me remind them that SGS2 and iphone are pretty much the same price. you get a lot more for your money buying a SGS2 then buying an iphone. i am neither a fanboy nor a hater but just a smart buyer.
[deleted post]I am a great admirer of Steve Jobs and his creations. I am planning to buy a MacBook. But I don't have the same feelings for his iPhone. iPhone lacks the charm, user friendliness and style. I would prefer a Nokia 701 over the new iPhone because its got classy design, its got NFC, the new back-lit IPS TFT display, got 3 hours more talk time than iPhone,its got 1 GHz processor and moreover its got Symbian Belle, what more could you want? Ah, I now remembered that iPhone got a huge number of applications but honestly can single use all the applications, NO and that's where Symbian and Android rule by limiting the number of applications for doing things with a mobile. SO APPLE USERS enjoy the last great creation by Steve Jobs and we'll be waiting what disaster will be next. NOKIA RULES & IT ROCKS
No wonder Apple was not confident to make a mention about its RAM size, a lowly 512MB. What are they thinking of, how futuristic is it to handle complex multi-tasking apps.
Amongst the fastest smartphones on the market right now. King of gaming. Never before seen AI with deep integration. Amazing camera quality.
Yet, people who buy, are supposedly brainwashed? Wonder who the brainwashed really are.
Oh yeah, maybe the ones who keep improving hardware, with nothing to run on it.
I think Apple is taking consumers for a fool. How could the 4S iphone have just 512MB RAM to handle the sort of computing hardware and apps? I believe the party will soon the over.

that pretty much sums it up...
