Anonymous, 01 Jul 2012Keep on hoping, Apple will shut down Android because they copied the core patents of AppleYou are aware that patents don't last forever and are intended to allow someone to be the sole seller of their idea for an amount of time, i believe it is around 3-5 years?
Shocking that people actively encourage and enjoy brands monopolising markets too: "Yeah Apple, that phone directly competes with/ is a lot better than the iPhone, lets whack a lawsuit on them because we probably have a great deal more money than them due to clueless hispters and their obsession with our overpriced products, then we'll throw a massive tantrum like a child and get them pulled off the market."
Monopolies like this actually HOLD BACK technological advancement, they make the market stagnant and unimagineative and they make companies far too buig for their boots. Apple are a prime example of this, just look at what they were 15 years ago and compare it to today.
It genuinely disgusts me how many people still buy this phone considering just how naff it is.
Most sellers in my area (northwest GB) sell this phone at £499 for the 16GB version (AS THE PRICE IS SET BY APPLE)sim-free, or £36/m on a contract.
Now consider that the samsung galaxy s3 costs a mere 95p more sim free and can be purchased on a very reasonable tariff for £36/m too, and also it's one of, if not THE, best handset(s) on the market and it seems plain silliness to fork over any more money to apple (especially considering how atrocious and expensive their customer care service is when you go to get a repair or some help).
Next, click the compare button next to the iphone and compare it to a Galaxy S2... notice that the spec of the S2 is either equal or superior to the iPhone 4S in every way, then listen to this:
S2 sim free price: £439.95
S2 min price/month: £26
So in essence the S2 made the 4S obselete around 5 or aso months before the 4S came out.
The final (and in my opinion, the most important)thing to bear in mind about iPhones is that any apps bought in their store can only be used on IOS, meaning only on other iPhones, whilst Android runs on a huge variety of branded phones.
All in all, you buy an iPhone for the apple on the back and because it's the "cool" phone for some bizarre reason, you keep buying iPhones because you've invested too much in apps for a second rate product to change your mind. You buy an Android because youve done a bit of research beforehand.
for me, i think iphone 4s size is good enough already for one hand use.perhaps apple only need to do is just to upgrade the iphone software and some other specs like the memory capacity,the cpu speed,much better os,better battery,perhaps better than razr maxx a radio and a little bit changes on physical features to brings new looks.

If you are looking for a legal phone and not an illegal plastic copy choose
y iphone have bluetooth but only function of bluetooth is for headset...very useless...android better...
Don't follow the hype...if you are trying to decide between an Android phone and an iPhone you should consider the services you want without having to mess with (Jail breaking/Rooting) the phone.
If you are looking for greater customizations (changing look and feel), playing flash content (which is used by most Web sites at the moment), fm radio, expandible memory (card slot), replaceable batteries (esp if you want to carry a spare), ability to open and edit MS office documents (out of the box), more free apps, independent music source, larger, vibrant, scratch resistant screen then your choice should be a high end Android device. You should choose Apple if the above is not important to you, if just want to be with the more established and reputable company, if you want the platform that currently leads (by a declining margin) in the number of Apps available.
Both platforms are reliable (no freezing crashes), good camera, screen quality etc.The galaxy s2 for example is very reliable offers all the features of the iPhone and more...the s3 and one X are even more advanced.
All the new features in ios6 (which is not in any device yet) is merely allowing apple to keep pace with those phones.
Android leads the world in market share so the support community is quite huge .
company responsible is make a recall like failure from vehicle. iphone 4g reception problem. 4s battery problem this is seriously. how do you know best inthe bechmark ?

Samsung Electronics Co. (005930), the world’s top handset maker, fell the most in a week in Seoul trading after Apple Inc. (AAPL) won a court ruling blocking sales of the Galaxy Nexus smartphone in the U.S.
