HooDooVooDooMan, 23 Sep 2013Noone copied anyone with the OS thing, its like saying Google and Mozilla copied Microsoft on ... moreNice try, but NFC works just fine on all aluminum bodies such as the HTC One or Xperia P.
In fact, if you look at it strictly from a theoretical point, it should work even better on aluminum bodies than plastic ones (unless you have bad coating in the antenna region and your fingers short the antenna. Reminds you of something?)
In reply to:
"NFC is good for plastic back covered phones it does not work very well on metal backs such as the iPhone."
Gonkun, 23 Sep 2013looks like "evolution" stops. time for the iOS and wPhone to kick-in.We have yet to see the new features of Android Kitkat 4.4, so I think it's a little to early to say that it is bad. Also, I think that IOS and Windows Phone 8 are not as versatile as Android is, in terms on cutomization and accessibility and much much more, but that is only my opinion.

OS Android may rules the world for many years so on...In Apple's iOS7 we'd found a bug letting people bypass the phone's passcode lockscreen...Apple sucks!
Kunal, 23 Sep 2013Not bad...

Technically speaking they disguise GUI & add a few apps on the Homescreen & deceive it's a new stuff. iOS beats them @ innovation & 4eva they remain King in d Smartphone World. Apple beats Samsung Hands down in technology. Hail Apple
Anonymous30, 23 Sep 2013FYI, apple don't want that crap NFC features due to lots of seecurity issues. Take time to rea... moreYeah.. so they went with a (proprietary) Bluetooth interpretation of NFC (called iBeacons) because everyone knows that if there is a technology which trumps on security it's Bluetooth. (It's a sarcastic remark in case you lack the ability to notice it)
They don't have NFC just because they believe they can (once again) get away by shoving down their costumer throats a closed proprietary version of what NFC does.
If anything, their security is even worst than NFC. On top of that, it lacks compatibility with the latest services that are starting to use NFC, it's cheaper for them (Apple) but more expensive for anyone who wants to develop for it.

I already had an idea that 4.4 would be very similiar to jellybean,,,just like froyo and gingerbread...smart me..:)
well curious about the changelog though..
Thats another homework for OEM's(slackers)..
ooh most iphone users here probably never held an android long enough,you can do almost everything on android, even make programs you want to. i held an iphone ,and got bored on it easily, calling ios7 innovative is way far to be true, i just laughed when apple introduces panorama ,when its way too old on android, now we have photospheres and alot more,finger print scanner?bah,old school. its not introducing stuff one by one, apple is just too slow or cant think of something original. android will never copy on a useless os like ios7, android is way ahead of ios,and thats the real truth
popye, 23 Sep 2013iOS7 has the nicest UI. Android is just so overdone.Android has many UI. You decide what you like best and go from there.
Android + KitKat rocks! ... However i see no reason to why people compare iOS vs Android!!! Which also means they compare iPhone with S4 or Note 3...
They are completely different, just go ahead with what makes you happy and respect whatever somebody else has. One might like to have a Nokia for the sake of its 41MP camera, another loves android because of its features yet somebody just likes Apple products perhaps because of design and simplicity....
At the end of the day we as consumers have the right to choose, just bare in mind Androids are powerful devices and need high specs becauses they need to compete each other within the android world such as Galaxy S4 vs HTC One....However iOS doesnt require so much tech power but requires a optimized OS for its iPhone.
As long as a device does what you want it to do then excellent choice you have made.
jaz, 22 Sep 2013ios7 copied all android features and you are saying that android copied ios7 features. FYI.. ... moreFYI, apple don't want that crap NFC features due to lots of seecurity issues. Take time to read tech news instead of commenting nonsense.
i also notice the more flatter icon. look at that google play and chrome icon. the gradient is gone and traded with shadow block. me-likey.
Please do something about the security issues and spyware with Android. Version 4.4 or Version 10, it does not matter - just fix it.
Windows phone is the Best... IOS now looks like a clown... Android sucks
jaz, 22 Sep 2013ios7 copied all android features and you are saying that android copied ios7 features.
... moreandroid is the only OS who's copying.i have a wp phone, an android tablet and in the past i had an iphone.i know what i'm talking.because is an open source, developers can integrate wp ans ios's features.
ps:sorry for my bag english and thank you for understanding.
Tornado Red R32, 22 Sep 2013No one is copying Apple!!!!!! People have been using gold as a status symbol and covering book... moreAgreen on "64 bit processing is a natural evolution that is available to everyone who makes mobile phones,the same with all other technology evolutions in this industry." part.
Yes, 64 bit or whatever bit they have... It's technology, and all of us have the right to use it. When we say technology, it involves the whole world. So guys stop saying that Apple copied this from Google or Samsung copied this from Apple.. Remember that we adapt or copy or whatever term you have as long as its useful and will gain benefit.. its inevitable..
Idiot, 23 Sep 2013all you dumb android and ios users just shut up and use your own phones. While you fight over ... moreKudos. Well said dude! Nothing is perfect. iPhone lacks features and Android is laggy sometimes. The reality is, they are yet to make us a phone which keeps everyone happy - which is not possible.
