I think you need to rephrase that. And crapple users can get unpaid apps too. Dont you dare try and peg that only on android users. The samse could be said about music and movies as well. Or anything. that is completely off point here.

Until four posts down under you it's only Apple defenders and the fourth one is nothing extravagant and over an hour before your comment....So I'm confused.

And Iphone is overrated. I would not call it garbage though. But HEAVILY HEAVILY HEAVILY overrated. And it is not better. Just because you like Apple better does not mean the os is more stable or that it feels more premium. But at what you pay I would like to boast that it had a premium feel too.

People prefer Apple in a majority because it is more popular. Everyone has Apple and says oh it's the best.....popularity doesn't mean crap. The most popular music in the US is pop music that sounds the same and all has singers that can just carry tunes and have about 2 octaves. Same lyrics and music and overplayed. Meanwhile you show them people who can sing and have 3 or 4 octaves and have well thought lyrics and sing to different genres it's crap. It's all over the radio and over played again and again and again. People live their lives claiming how amazing their music is and that those unique ones are garbage. Pretty much same with Apple and Android.

Ipad cheapest and best??? You are high as a kite. Anything Apple is almost guaranteed to cost a couple hundred more because it's Apple. Seconde...Where is it the fastest or best?

Next Laptops.. For $1200 for a mac air or a Samsung.
I7Quad Core(2GHZ-2.9GHZ)/I5Dual Core(1.7Ghz-2.3GHZ)
750GB HD/128GB Flash
2GB Dedicated Graphics 1344MHZ/Built in up 350MHZ-1.15GHZ and Allocated memory
Bluetooth 3/Bluetooth 4
4 USB Two 3.0 and 2.0/2 USB 2.0 and a Thunderbolt
Multi Card reader/None
Wifi B,G,N/A,B,G,N

So where are you getting your info? You are getting a vastly greater amount of everything with the Samsung.
And rich spoiled "kids" as you put it go for Apple. Since when did they go for another company in majority?? And People like them find it easier to go to Apple because everyone has it and tells them it's the best. Most of them don't take the time to find or need something better. They need something now and sadly it's Apple that has the NAME and POPULARITY.

HD was useless til apple got it. And wow somehow apple supposedly having 100000 kids and adult apps means Android doesnt have great quality kids and adult apps... You have great logic. And others dont sell?? So because more brainless idiots or the misinformed get ipads and bring more sales to apple means that others suck and dont sell at all?????????????

Second of course some developers go to Apple because they know there are billions of dumbies that will pay anything for anything. This however does not mean that plenty of people do not develope for Android...cause plenty do and there are many great top notch apps and developers also make profit off the adds. And people can jailbreak their Iphone and do the same thing.

The GS2 did not lag, freeze, skip, and mess up once. Please point out were it did. And the only major difference between the two was the camera recording them. And UGLY? POOR? How? Please I would LOVE for you to show me where the GS2 had ugly or poor graphics...or anything

here's galaxy s2 graphics, not so amazing :) actually very ugly. That's like two different games, it looks so much better with iPhone 4S. Didin't even know that.

Also it doesn't run smoother like you said like you see from those videos, iPhone 4S can handle 4 car in screen perfectly smooth with those amazing graphics.

> In reply to [deleted post]Gotta laugh! The iphone4s is got the worse battery life. I've got a mate who's got an iphone4s and his battery runs down like water running down a hill. Its been apple's major flaw since the tried to upgrade the iphone4 to the level of the sgs2. I recently downloaded asphalt 6 free on my sgs2 and his. When we load the game same time his takes a longer time to open and not as smooth as mine when playing. If you doubt google battery problem with the Iphone 4s and not the Iphone 4. I hate it when people try to make the iphone look perfect its not.

For example if I backup in android I can't restore it unless I use same account and only if phone is activated and it's same with iOS. Infact it back up ur settings , position of icons , volune u setted during last use , data inside apps , whole data including how many times u played a song etc etc.
Android doesn't have such functionality. Everything must be done manually like by using Kies (Kies is lot worst than iTunes). Or 3rd party apps.

iPod touch 3rd gen has 256 MB Ram and it runs games like infinity blade 2 and great applications like GarageBand(500 MB). Who cares specs if u don't have good apps ?

Coming to SD-slot as far as I know why do u need it ? U tell me that android phones never use a PC/Laptop ? If that's the case Samsung won't give u Kies software.but that's the case everyone uses PC atleast once a week. (smartphone users).

See, android tabs bring USB host functionality, system wide file management and immense codec support in hardware. That makes them more PC like. I love the great base functionality provided by honeycomb. It will just improve by ICS. All I had to install quick office pro and ez-pdfreader from the market. And it gives me a very pleasant web browsing, light document reading experience.

As for the guy who believes, wanting data on your physical memory being 1999, well get some sense. Your iCloud is always slower than any commercial flash memory. Plus your data is in someone else's domain. Of course, we understand that you trust apple. ;-). But I don't. And it consumes data to merely operate.

lol, not big deal in it. i am using SG2 and Iphone4 and frankly i have nothing on my Sg2, all cheep apps.! where as ive tones of apps on my iphone and ive not paid for anything. And its good that there is a competition goin on between android and ios coz apps store started giving loads HD full games for free and ive downloaded almost 10 HD games for free last week. Forget about all these.. I hate my SG2, just bcoz of the pooorest battery life i have ever experienced on mobile. i don carry it , i just keep it on my room. I am so unhappy with cheep android apps. even if u check the user comments on apps of android market, users themselfs has commented on most of the apps that it is so cheep and waste , dont download it. The only thing i luv on my GS2 over iphone is the screen size and widgets. Rest all iphone. i dont care ppl talk abt depending up itunes and all, but it has loads of advantages as well, it is the best way to organize songs. i am planning to sell my SG2 and purchase samsung note, hope it has a better battery life. its shame that ive a smart and i cant carry it. battery wont even last for a day. real shame. i am game lover and wen ever i gets free time i relax my mind playing games and SG2 dissapointed me with poooooooooooorest battery life every with over heating and cheep quality games and apps.!

even angry birds series are free in Market.. not mentioning the recent 10c apps promo..

it's kinda expected for AppStore to get much more revenue than Market simply because they force customers to pay for most of the apps..
