hi, i must share my apple service experience. they have a nightmare sevice. they don't change any common parts such lcd panels or acumulators, they replace the device with a new one and take your broken device. if this may be appealing for someone, think your broken device may have data wich you don't want to reach in anybody's hands never such important contacts, mails, card's pin. and after guarantee period they DO NOT MAKE ANT REPAIR. be very careful when you buy iphone4 and check before where is making after-sales service, where is the point of service. go there and ask them what operations they do in the guarantee and post-guarantee. check this!!!

Best are these iHaters who write long list's what you can't do with your iPhone, in EVERY iPhone news :D
I'm sure most of us know those already before buying expensive iPhone, why we still want it? some other's reason maybe?
Have you iHaters never thinked that we might can do those same things but a different way? or they are not that big cons for us?
I know all those cons what iPhone have but still going to buy iPhone 5 because there's so much more interesting positive things for me than negative things.

The point is, no brand is perfect. I like iOS, doesn't mean I have to spam the Android comments sections with "OMG Android sucks, iOS is the best!!!" right?
Basically, iOS fans and Android fans don't have any problems with each other. We both have problems with trolls, from either side. I am an iPhone fan, but I am against iPhone fanboys trolling on Android sections.
Same with Android fans, they are just minding their own business, enjoying Android. But the Android fanboys, are trolling on iPhone sections.
The trolling fanboys are actually the common enemy of iOS and Android fans. Troublemakers.

I use iPhone and Android and love both approaches to technology. I just happen to love my iPhone that little bit more, because I do more than just transfer files over bluetooth, and listen to FM radio lol. (Is that all Android fanboys do? Seriously?)
I love my iPhone because I love gaming. Gaming is far superior on iPhone than any handset at the moment. I also love the whole eco-system that has grown out of Apple's oooooooo closed system approach. The iPhone is standardized, so people can write programs easily, knowing the hardware available. That is why today, not a single Android phone can accept my electric guitar, and allow me to jam or record music. iPhone can, so in that situation, which do I use?
I love my SGS2, which I think gives me the best of both worlds by the way. Why choose? I don't recall Apple giving me a memo saying I had to use on their products. I'm also waiting for Samsung's CEO to give me that memo, hasn't arrived either lol.
Use what works for you, and stop insulting the ones you don't. That's just for kids.

1.Either your home screen gets locked,
2.Battery will die before you download anything..lol..of course because the phone is uncompleted copy of an iPhone,
3.Even if download is completed,all you could see is bunch of cheap plastic melted all over your hands,so this glass of milk i'll pass onto you,so you could use it to stop your skin from 1ST degree burn..hahahaha

Don't look at specs,experience all the phones,and then judge them

before it's released on the market
Apple will sell millions in a week you like it or not,and while smart people getting rich on Apple stock market,because of Apple's development,and quality,you stay home stuck on your Android's stupid video games..
I'll take play station,and my big screen over any smartphone's video game,if it's really that necessary to play video games,and if i'm gonna lose some sleep if i don't play any..
There is a very simple explanation for this.Apple are masters of propaganda.It is a skill they have mastered.Since the release of the SGS2,HTC sensation,Atrix and EVO 4G it's pretty clear that the iphone 4 is outclassed.All you'd have to do to get one of the above mentioned is to folk over a little bit more money.People will readily pick the iphone 4 over any other phone because it's a CULTURAL ICON!Politicians have it,the rich have it and most importantly celebrities have it. We love celebrity worship.We want to dress like them,eat like them and live like them so why not buy the same phone they have? Apple knows this and the continue to brainwash the masses."The iphone is the best,there is nothing else,ask the celebs" and with that they cripple Android.If even it's not true that a lot of celebs get the iphone 4 they make it seem that way.Perception is reality.As for Nokia and Blackberry? it's their fault they are falling behind.They keep pushing out rubbish for us.Blackberry needs to master the art of an EFFICIENT touch screen device.In this day and age the only touch totally touch screen device they have managed to pull out is the storm and that's not good enough! Nokia just dropped that ball totally.If they had given the N8 and Android OS they would have started climbing the ladder again! I don't know what these CEO's are thinking.

Lets recap the problem people have with the apple fanboy crusaders. They mistakenly believe shelling out for their premium, aspirational lifestyle device, gives them some superiority complex and great technical nous. This is pretence though. True innovators feel Jobs is limiting them at every step. Which he is. Jobs spoonfeeds fanboys. He gives them a few tricks, some stunningly coded GUI's, and tells them that is all they need. Pre iphone 4, the iterations had half a dozen brilliant features, industry changing level features, that everybody copied. Like capacitive ultraresponsive touchscreens, kinetic scrolling, and the brilliantly simple app store and OTA downloading of media. And Apple did it with panache, better than everybody else. But then they screwed it up with Job's control freakery. Pre-iphone 4, apple screwed up 3 chances to produce clearly superior phones, for lame reasons. No multitasking? Even nokia phones 5 yrs old had that. Excuse? Battery drain on O.S.! Cut and paste? Such a simple little thing. Bluetooth and file management features? Sorry, no. WTF apple? 2 mp cameras when even nokia are churning out 5 and 8 mp handsets? Crappy screen pixel count when my X1 had 315ppi! Everything could have been so much better, for an industry leader. And its not like people wouldn't have paid for these superior features! It was their purely software approach, which limited them. Luckily, they never dropped the ball as much as nokia then sony ericsson did. Iphone 4 was released, and was a clear industry standard leader, in many ways. But underlying it all, there's jobs and his philosophy that you need to like what he wants. True, he countered a lot of the tech issues that iphone was lacking. Apple haters are a sophisticated bunch though. They loathe the closedness of the ecosystem. Apple's makes it hard to transfer all your stuff to non apple devices. They say DRM, but we see it as future blackmail. You will stay with them and pay over the odds on apple tax. Iphone 4 was the best device, and the fans got what they wanted. A premium aspirational device that was their passport to technological sophistication. The real tech savants weren't tricked though. But they had to respect the device's power. Then Android OS finally reached a comparable level, without Jobs's limiting vision. And handset makers took note. They led the next jump, and we're waiting for them to match or surpass. The sgs2, and even the atrix, sensation and optimus 2, are better than iphone 4. They're all dual core and 6-12months more advanced. No shame in admitting that tech has advanced so quickly. And until iphone 5 is released, fanboys need to realise that they're behind the curve. Then they can argue the toss.

That battery'll last all day, if that's what you want. And when the sgs2 runs out of power, browsing twice as fast as iphone 4, you'llbe spending your extrapower time, waiting for your snail processor to complete downloading what I finished hours ago! ( though I gather that may suit you, at the pace you appear to be thinking at!)
Thanks for spellcheck. Very mature of you. Enjoy your glass of milk at playtime on me. Gold star :P

Gaming for instance. The new games that will run on Android Nvidia only, require quad core, yet run fine on iPhone. Why? Optimization, due to lack of fragmentation.
This is a problem that cannot be overcome. As a developer, one would write to include the slowest machines possible, so that they can sell as many copies as possible. This is less of a problem on iPhone.
With iOS 5 coming soon, as well as the iPhone 4S/5, plus Nokia attacking on the other side with WP7, Android is going to have a very bad year in 2012. They have already started losing market share by the way. As usual, please google all that I have mentioned here, before coming in with mindless rants lol.
Android fanboy losers are gonna be in for a world of butthurt soon, can't wait! Hehehe
I love my iphone, but I have been giving it some thought to why this is recently.
The Touchscreen and UI are second to none. Better than Android
The lack of "Out of the box" applications actually works for the iphone, as you get to customise your device how you want, and most of the time, 3rd party devs make better software than what is shipped with your device.
Connectivity. For a device that's supposed to be "closed off", it supports just about every social network known to man.
