I was a apple fan , but after buying iPhone 3G , and they announced playing 2x faster thing on a same shit i decided to change to android. i am happy that i am an android fan now.i can do anything with my phone that i forgot that i have a laptop . android is the best and its much better when its on a Samsung flagship phone.i am using first galaxy note. and its still better than iPhone 5.and i will sure go for galaxy s4.
i would rather have outdated updates, but real updates, real differences that you can notice rather than the so called apple updates that make no differences just small fixes and twitches, not even the major apple updates don't have any differences. When my droid gets an updated you can clearly see it, also there are lots of custom roms and u can do it yourself , a thing that a iphone can't or better said one of the many and as gsmarena pointed out: "iOS has what is now a four-years old user interface"
TheNeighbor, 14 Mar 2013iOS is the one so limited. With the S Pen on the Samsung Galaxy Note II, I can do digital pai... morePosting your fake pictures as usual I see. And what does a digitizer have to do with the OS?? This has nothing to do with anything in this article. Go away.
Now, that's a pretty good way to shoot your self in the foot Schiller.
How about you think with your brain instead of the other head you have before you spew out lies?
Just to show of freaking ridiculous Schiller's claims is, then take a look at this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=buGpyCgqmfE
The funny thing here is that Armando in the video is using Gingerbread from 2010 to show that Android is far from having any fragmentation problems.
I can't do anything else than just doing this to Phil: http://fc09.deviantart.net/fs42/f/2009/093/5/9/Double_Facepalm_by_ScotlandForLife.jpg
ASH, 14 Mar 2013jellybean just like any 0ther android os drinks your battery!! at least apple's os is battery... moreSorry, my Galaxy Note II lasts 16 hours + with heavy usage with WiFi/3G, bluetooth, torrent downloading and with about a total 8 hours + of screen on. You have a cellphone with media player, we have a cellphone that has a digitizer, multi-view & multitasking functions like a computer... & plays music as well.
We cannot compare Samsung with Apple. Android is an open source,so you could do whatever you want. IOS is so ugly nothing new. There is no wights, no home screen, just home menu. Samsung will be the first company in just couple month.
I will choose cupcake against ios6! which is I think 4-5 yrs old. coz android is an ultimate os.
Actually I don't know why all of you sensitive with these kind of article or news .... Just always compare compare and compare does it matter with you ?? Or important to you??hello, this just a different brand,design,built quality bla bla bla but both of them have same fuction like make a phone call, SMS and take photo or video etc....phone only need not to argued..
iOS is the one so limited. With the S Pen on the Samsung Galaxy Note II, I can do digital paintings using Sketchbook or Photoshop Touch for professional results like this:
No, you'd have a harder time drawing with your FINGER or a capacitive pointer for the details. You'd need the useless iPad so that you can do the details better for iOS. iOS doesn't have a an active Wacom digitizer system like the S Pen. iOS is not so productive for me.
Wow. Dated OS, coming from the mouth of an Apple Exec.... Speechless...
apple sucks plain and simple stop hating sammy i like but i would not trade my sony for s4 unless the design is changed. and they throw in water proof but apple is the worst i dislike with a passion update ur own os same thing since first iphone sad.
What Mr Schiller does not realise the majority of the users dont care about updates nor do they understand what they bring to a phone.
Can't really say I have any sympathy for a phone that costs an arm and a leg to acquire for no obvious reason..so my two cents is..way to go Samsung,one up for the masses...
Phil has gone mad, barking with a lusterless 4 yr old outdated ios...,android made him psychotic
Blah blah blah mr. Phil did you ever asked your self how many of iPhone consumers are still with your remarkable, amazing, brilliant, exciting phone etc etc using old software from god knows when???
Not every one have money to buy your latest miracle of an iPhone 5, many are still using iPhone 3G and 3S, and many iPhone 4 and 4S customers are disappointed with your latest number 5.
Are you scared that your consumers will leave you for other alternative solution for example Android, WP8, in the near future Ubuntu?
Also this game of telling who is better or worse with mobile phone makers is becoming really utterly annoying and stupid. Because of mobile industry and manufacturers like Apple, Samsung, Nokia etc etc poor people are dying from Congo which is a main provider for the minerals (tantalum, tungsten) used in making mobile phones mr.Phil and your main problem is Samusung using 2 year old software...Shame on you!!!
Apple be Apple - Yeah it's easy to say about fragmentation when Apple makes only one phone at a time with a stale and safe OS without even 50% of features that Android has and even then the iphone 5 has screen issues with many apps. Try not fragmenting the millions of different devices at different price ranges.
