Yeah apple's market share is growing in US,
Just because things are apple friendly there!
AnonD-977, 23 Dec 2011Nope, Android lags with nothing running, just rendering the screen is enough due to the way i... moreAndroid, Windows mobile 7 even Symbian is Phone OS. Just that Android and Windows use Java and C sharp modals. Symbian uses C++ which is harder for apps creation.
iOS uses objective C use is something like C++ but apple invested alot on xcode IDE environment which makes it programmer friendly as well.
Your statement on android are typical Apple fanboy's claim which is bias to the core.
I own android, symbian, iOS devices so i know its not true that one is better than the other. Every one has pros and cons.
Android has many music software as well, just that the lower end phone or tablet will have problem running it. Compatibility check in google marketplace serve to inform user whether their phone/tablet can run the software so as to prevent user from buying high end software that don run on their present phone.
Samsung Galaxy S2 is the phone you must have, the only advantage of the 4S is siri and that's it... go android phones!
Dude, 23 Dec 2011Sorry dude, but lags after opening many apps is normal especially when u have OS that operate ... moreWhat multitasking do you need? I can be listening to music and play a game or surf the web at the same time.
Dude, 23 Dec 2011Sorry dude, but lags after opening many apps is normal especially when u have OS that operate ... moreNope, Android lags with nothing running, just rendering the screen is enough due to the way it's set up, processes can't be given priority at the kernel level.
That's why there are no good DJ or musical instrument applications on Android, they stutter too much.
There's nothing that can be done about it until Android undergoes a complete rewrite, like what Microsoft had to do with WinMo and Blackberry had to do with their OS.
This is something that everyone should learn, whether that be Apple, Google (Android), Symbian, Meego, Bada, etc :Except for death and paying taxes,

AnonD-977, 23 Dec 2011Music through headphones on the S2 is crap compared to the iPhone and not just by a little bit... moreSorry dude, but lags after opening many apps is normal especially when u have OS that operate under a true multitasking capabilities like Android. Because all the apps that opened are running in the same time..so lag a bit is normal. For iPhone, that doesn't seems to happen even if you open 50 apps (just an example) because their multitask is not really multitask, it just freeze the apps in the background..so if you open 50 apps, 49 apps in the background are not running, it is freeze, and only 1 apps is running which is the one seen in the screen. So, if only 1 apps is running, of course there will never be lag, but..BUT...this shows that iOS is not really a multitasking OS. Try to open SGS2 with one app, it will never lag as well, or open HTC Rhyme which have less juice inside, with one app still it never lag. So, iPhone is all about opening one app.
Anonymous, 23 Dec 2011How's Infinity Blade, Arkham City Lockdown, and Megaman X just released today running on your ... moreExactly. Thats the word, for now. Treasure it while you can. At least you can tell others of this moment in the future when android dominates the market, like any market analyst forcasts.
lets all buy iphones and all look the same!!!
>>iOS is worth paying for alone. Every game on the app store works for it...
buy a mobile phone just to play games?
so in conclusion Germany is doing bad and UK rocks financially ... yeah right!
move on people, nothing to see here; it is just a patent troll getting spanked
Anonymous, 23 Dec 2011iPhone 4S has shortages due to demand right now.isn't it because of the factory incident with injuries ? http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/12/19/us-pegatron-idUSTRE7BI02R20111219
I do have a Samsung Note and an Apple iPhone 4 (not 4s). Overall the iPhone is a superior soft ware experience, but Apple cannot just rely on a Margin only business model. The only reason Android is capturing market share is because iPhone has been essentially too expensive for the vast majority of people who otherwise would have enjoyed the Apple experience. In doing so Apple generously handed the market to Android which is ok, and getting better, for the vast majority of people to enjoy an experience similar to iPhone. Frankly Apple needs to grow up a little and capture a great market demographics. Every Android buyer was essentially an iPhone buyer (forgetting about those that despise the close nature of the OS). My Note is great for document viewing and being a general do all gadget given today's hardware and software limitations. Oh, by the way I also use a Blackberry 9900 for business which is my preferred mobile as I travel a lot and have many sim cards.

Android has many good points, but gaming is currently a win for iPhone for now.

That's right Samsung patented the smiley in 2001, long before the iPhone was around, patent EP1215867 to be precise.
Here's the patent:-
Now if only Samsung wasn't dumb enough to know that iPhones don't use these.
mirciro, 23 Dec 2011Apple created great devices and iphone 4s is one of them. they had great marketing to go with ... moreMusic through headphones on the S2 is crap compared to the iPhone and not just by a little bit either,
I even asked a Samsung rep why that was and they had no answer.
The S2 still lags sometimes, it's an inescapable flaw in Android.
