iOS for beginners: Setting up your iPhone - read the full textWhether you love it, hate it or even loathe it, Apple’s smartphone remains a desirable piece of tech for many out there. And whether you’ve bought one, are thinking about it, or even trying to find reasons why you shouldn’t, it's important to find out what makes it stand apart...

Lately I've been harboring a TON of interest in the iPhone 4S (long-time Android user, so please refrain from being a 12-year-old about this), if only for its great audio quality and DAC support. I may very well take that dive into iOS soon.

"Setting up yuour android SMARTPHONE" and "Setting up your iPhone"
Guess even GA knows the difference, n is aware of the fact that true multitasking is the essence of a smartphone
Size difference of the articles points out the versatility of android
Though on another note-will like to see one for WP coming too......

Using a so called smartphone doesn't make you as smart.

Is this the worst trolling attempt ever? The Note 2 isn't perfect, but I'm yet to see any bug or lag for more than 3 months now.

On quality apps, somethe of the included ones (s-note, s-planner, paper artist, camera app and stock browser), some you can buy cheap or get for free (evernote, switch, sketchbook pro) and premium apps (Adobe's Photoshop Touch and Ideas) work like a breeze and are excellent quality.

You can have really crappy horrible quality apps or well built high quality apps on any platform. Troll harder. I don't even think you really have a Note II. Btw, saying an open source OS is like leaving your house door open could also qualify among world's worst analogies.

Am an Android & iOS user " SE Arc S GB ROOTED & iPhone 4s 5.1.1 JAILBREACKED .
Well the Article was very good and this is the way for GSMArena's posts Orgnized & Useful and i like that very mutch .
Now somebodies in here are comparing deffirent Android devices with iPhone ! Thats unfair .

If i would compare iphone 4s with Arc s i would say this for Share :
1 iphone's battary is better then Arc s . Long life fastest charge .
2 iphone's display quality is also better .
3 Arc s screen is better coz of its biggest size .
4 jailbrakin iOS is very similer to rooted Android .
5 Rooted Android is mutch Powerful .
6 iphone 4s is havy but comfortable in hands , arc s is light but not that much of comfrtable .
7 same apps same games with prefrence for iOS " stablity " .

Thanks to you too GSMArena .

It seems to me Android fans are really backwards. Entire books and university lessons are dedicated to user-friendliness and to these guys, having a 50 page long user guide for a system is better than having a 10 page long guide. Weird.

Before iP5 launch on my country , i always hear bad news and problem about apple ... Like purple flare, wifi problem, scratch , batery life, many more... But when it available, i also buy one and seem there no problem at all... I cant find any problem that everybody talk about... Especially the purple flare... I try so many way to find where the purple flare ? i also point directly to the sun and try many angle there no purple flare?? Like apple say.. u do it the wrong way.. yeah... i try S3 on the wrong way also got purple flare ....batery also not bad... Standert this day phone can stay about 1 day batery life depend on how they using.. And who want to put the key and phone on same poket?(easy scratch) Even i used nokia 8310 i dont put key and phone on same poket.. It make my poket big cause i always wear jeans...

Soo.. I wonder did android people tell lie about all this thing soo they hope nobody buy apple product?? I only see war android vs apple.. Thats why i say "android people"
