I work tech support for one of the top 3 cell phone providers, every single phone out there has some type of "issue". Manufacturers plan for their phones to last about 1-2 years......so you"ll keep purchasing their product. Cell phones are really for making & receiving calls. We should all be happy with that!

Battery backup is very good now and it looks like present update brought us some relief to power users. Thank you Apple for optimiZing OS

That's not true. I have iPhone 4s, and only thing what pisses me off is battery life (new OS or old, doesn't matter).
Its great to offer new features, better screens etc... but what about battery? Looks like everyone forgot about that. And looks like people are more exited to get few megapixels more for camera (what doesn't give anything for picture) than better battery.

Android does not have an as good app store as Apple. My mom has an android phone and tablet. I have used them and there smart phones are fine. Thier tablets SUCK. Apples iPhones,iPads,and IPods are AMAZING. If you wanted an bigger capacity you just buy a larger GB Apple product. My mom has the Android tablet and I have an iPad 2. I do know whitch is better. The iPad 2
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

The removable battery is being obsolete right now. Just look at the new phone htc is releasing like the one x, it's battery is not removable. As for the other features you've said like the hdmi etc etc do you even think its a lost if you don't have 5 or 6 row of icons or the hdmi that you will be having in DVD or Bluray players right now or the generic USB port. There is a reason why apple is not getting a generic port for their devices one is ofcourse profit but aside from that they have developed their own port for speed optimization

i clearly said ''this is not a list of features that can be found all in one phone, but most are''.
And even if we take tablets in the consideration then some new ones like:
-the lack of micro usb or any usb
-i guess this includes USB on the GO
-also proper tv out as in full mirroring
-micro sd ?
-mass storage mode ?
-multitude of materials and colours and dust/water proof
Why do you sign yourself as ''IHATER'' ?

let's just be honest here and see what iOS realy misses. Of course this is not a lsit of features that can be found all in one phone, but most are, still it's this great list of options that makes andoid so attractive to so many types of buyers. SO let's see:
-3d screen, 3d camera( optimus 3d),
-microsd(universal on android, bada)
-widgets
-screen customisation
-custom launcher
-5th, 6th etc row of icons
-mass storage when you feel like it
-bluetooth transfer between everything and anything
-USB on the go
fingerprint reader for thsoe that want one(motorola atrix)
-flash all over the web
-multitude of screen sizes, multitude of colours, trims, buton configurations
-shutter buton
- hdmi out for those who hate mhl link, keep usb free for sticking usb stick to use with USB on the go
- Google Now wipes the floor with Siri, just look on youtube
- removable battery
-shows the crashes, doesn't hide them by going back to home screen !
-different build materials, IP67 etc certification phones available
-Playstation certification
-full screen mirroring
-miracast, that's full screen mirroring no cable
-real multitasking
-split scren now on Samsungs touch wiz, to be used with the real multitasking above
And there's probably more. but this is just enough to show how far behind apple is.

Galaxy s2 received 4.0.3 an year ago but we received it 8 months ago with a lot of bugs! Believe me and we had to wait 1 year to receive a new version of andriod , cross figers and prey this time to be ok because otherwise we may not receive any update. Btw probably sammy will releasethe 4.1.2 by summer.

Inconsistency amount devices running android. Yes, Isheeps really hating on not having those features. Yes yes. Keep up the good work, trolls. Jelly Bean came out in November. Apple already released 2 updates since then. Well done apple.
