Android lovers will try and justify their handsets byt saying "ooooh we have Flash" and "ooooooh we can customise more". Wow wee. Androids have 7 (pointless) home screens and can have a weather widget in one, a calender in another, have a rainy screen saver. Wow wee. iPhone users have 1 home screen that accesses everything you need. Called simplicity and effectiness.

Samsung phones are overhyped and clones of each other. I did switch to the Galaxy S2 from a 3GS and went back to the iPhone as the GS2 was just not as great as an iPhone.

When I looked at the new Google Nexus I almost laughed! And people laughed when iPhone 4S came out, even though Apple have enhanced the phone dramtically.

Samsung = too many phones = deception = just aint good as people think :)

I actually owned a Samsung Galaxy S2 and returned it after a few days as it just wasnt as good as an iPhone, Android is just not as polished as the iOS. I mean whats the point of having 7 home screens? Someone please explain why as I have yet to meet an Adroid user who has even filled more than 3!

I myself like the Razr a lot I think its great. I also like the Lumia 800.

Most people are under the assumption that iPhone fans are brainwashed. The fact is, we just like elegant engineering and well thought out products. I also like Audis, Sony NEX5 camera, Motorola Razr, Nokia Lumia 800.

It is ironic that the most close-minded people are the ones busy spouting "open source! Open source!" all day long. An iPhone fan is more likely to praise another product, as opposed to an Android zombie fanboy so STFU lol.

And wouldn't exactly call downgrade on features like:

* 720 x 1280 pixels Super Amoled HD 720P screen
* 3G HSDPA 21 Mbps and LTE
* 4.7" screen
* 1 GB RAM
* Yes, 1080p@30fps video recording
* Android OS, v4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich)
* Dual-core 1.2GHz
* Li-Ion 1750 mAh battery
Etc Etc..

You want a smartphone with camera, buy SG2. If you want a pocket portable tablet hybrid with HD display, fast connections LTE, browsing, media and business purposes, get Galaxy Nexus.
