Anonymous, 05 Jul 2012A brief description of benefits of ICS over iOS(these are basic things that a non-geek look ou... more1. The one with sharing is implemented on iOS 6 , where u install each app and as u install them , sharing options increase.
ICS used by 1/10th of users , froyo also has that sharing feature , isn't it ?
2.cutting cellular data is only extra option u see.
3.well , that contact feature is nice , but why didn't they include that for SMS , I clearly missed SMS folders though , I wouldn't care much about contacts , but pansi app has folders for SMS.
4.If u want spotlight , press home button u go to home screen and press again u are in spotlight , not very difficult , as far as I know , s2 doesn't have search dedicated I think.that feature on implemented on nexus.
5.On iPad multitouch gestures are way better implementation , 5 finger pinch to close apps , four finger up for task bar and four finger side gesture for going to next app directly , but iPhone iOS still has something missing l but iPad has no issues in this case with switching or killing.
6.Only widgets useful are stocks and weather , maybe an analog clock because if u have feeds u have to go to app to read news anyway , widgets are half functional , show only previews , I used windows vista for years and also 7 from past year , never used a widget in it too since they not fully functional as notifications or apps and make the screen big clutter.
7.In ios 5.1 , just swipe screen up to launch camera , the double press feature is on iOS 5 but iOS 5.1 just swiping up launches camera.
8.Really ? Galaxy s also handled ics and jellybean but not yet updated because the user experience is sluggish and rom of official samsung ics of SGS is too big.
iPhone 4s uses ear smart technology which makes siri work even in noisy areas and they didn't include this tech in iPad 2 as well but they included this only in 4s and iPad 3.
9. Voice dictation on ICS isn't that good as jellybean , iOS dictation similar to jellybean , but not offline ver ofc.
But even though there are little things to be improved , iOS is very easy. Stable , smooth and app quality is good.
As far as argument about "iOS is boring" , I still don't get those people , I use my device for web browsing , some apps and emails etc. what is boring with those ? , I want a device which just works right out of the box and also have good quality.
When. Said ICS still not smooth enough , lot said android is smooth as ios but google exactly showed what ICS was missing with project butter demonstration , if u used iOS for long time and then use android , u still don't feel it "right" , as if it's not good or something is missing , jellybean did nice improvements in User experience but as far as ICS is concerned roadmap was horrible , with so less users using it , only devices I like from android are nexus.

Dear Apple, if you are listening, please do not use the new Exynos 4 chipset in your iPhone coz it will screw up streaming buffering and cause horrible I/O buffer problems not faced on HTC devices. Samsung, please buck up your chipset issues on streaming compatibility!! Your S 3 has a great design ergonomically and look but the internal engine chipset is a letdown. Very disappointing for power users indeed. HTC keep up your well done chipset implementation but try improve your physical outlook on sets. Apple keep up your good work and stay focus on what you have been doing right so far. Ensure software streaming compatibility yes!
I wonder why Apple fans go on these forums or sites anyways. Like many i have had multiple devices of different OS. If i want lag and feature free then i would go for WP7/8 not iPhone. Sure after you jailbreak the iPhone its fun. But don't update or you'll break it or worry about unlocking or have to wait. If Apple stops supporting a device, does it still get updates? I have a HD2 that came out i beleive same time as 3g that still gets the best stuff. Things i use on android in real life that iPhone doesnt have, i can launch messages mail phone etc from lockscreen. i can mod buttons for swipe2wake. i can enhance camera, sound, graphics. Oh and i can overclock to become LAGFREE. someone said iPhone you can customize if you know what you are doing. If you know what you are doing, Android can be lagfree. I have a GS1 that i strip to bare apps and runs way better than an iPhone 4. just sayin

You know my 3GS smokes my friends' SGS2 doing MOST things in realistic real-world usage. Yeah, surprise surprise, you don't need an octa-core 7983276493GHz processor for your phone to work.
hohoho, 06 Jul 2012clearly, youre clueless about what you're talking about. nough saidYeah, and you know what you're talking about, right? /s
well i dont knw what android have that users brag abt:S
lol the android app store is bad enough to neglect it..let alone its lagginess and unstable OS....talking abt customs ROMS what will u do with it? just change its looks?....my frnd bought GS III and i was randomly trying fuit ninja on it...i was like WTF? why it looks bad like its stretched...then i opened it on my iP4...just day/night difference, another thing i noticed is the quality of apps...they r just AWFUL
a jailbroken iPhone can piss on Android anyday......i mean ANYDAY...dont believe ? TRY IT ;)

Tell me one feature of IPhone 4S over mid-range Android phone that will justify the cost difference. Hopefully you will not say it is premium device and hence the cost.

LP7 upwards is smooth as butter. Lol.
iphone user experience > Android user experience
quality of iOS apps > quality of Android apps
iphone customisation = android customisation
You just have to known what you're doing. Sticking a launcher over iOS is just like sticking a launcher interface over stock android. Look at Touchwiz/Sense for example.
can anyone give any good examples of how superior Android is over iOS? And i'm talking REAL WORLD applications, and usage. Not some obscure feature that 1 in 50 people use.

if you doubt that a s2 running ICS has any problem at al, here's the evidence to prove i am right. if it's only one or two complaints then it could be just an isolated incident. but count all of them, and eventually you'll need a calculator to add all of them.

So App... moreon the contrary, there are many more manufacturers out their, NOT JUST SAMSUNG. the only reason apple let's samsung buil their hardware (and vice versa) is because apple and samsung have a contract which indicates, you guessed it, samsung is the one that should manufacture apple's hardware.
we all know that breaking a contract have major issues.
