One can't fit a proper power amplifier in such a small device cramped with stuff. The real music maniacs go as far as using vacuum tube based amplifier to get real sound. and only one vacuum tube is volumewise as big as the iphone.
As for real time phone calls are as real time as it can get. I suppose that you have talked to someone with an Android phone, right? weer his words delayed? Or did they come in the wrong order?
Let's not repeat clichés like "lag" and "latency" without any meaning in them.

you see what you want to see...
Funniest thing about android fanboys is that they think they now what other needs and wants. They keep coming back again and again talking about how superior android is and how much you can do with it, without understanding that we all have our own taste and needs and we buy stuff based on OUR needs not OTHERS.
If someone want to buy android or blackberry or wp phones, what I have to say about that? nothing, it's their choice and they know what they want, I don't try to turn anyone to buy Apple products like these android fanboys try to do everyday again and again.

ios = apple, apple, apple
you're expecting ios to come 1st when you have a lot of competitors? not to mention the restrictions of iOS (yeah i hate them, i can't even sync music with other libraries -_-) that many can't bear?
just buy what you want. you don't need to compare market shares, unless you're working in those companies, right?
popye, 06 Oct 2013Android is the biggest copycat of all. You'd be amazed how fast Android has evolved but the tr... moreI dont like Trolling for no reason, but you started it, so here we go--
1. Android-"Hey Apple Do you have useful Widgets?"
Apple-"No.What is a widget??"
2. Android-"Can you transfer using Wifi direct?"
3. Android-"iOS is simple to use. Can you transfer media files directly to iDevice?"
Apple-"No. Yes. I mean Sort of. 1st you convert media files using our software, only then you can transfer them. Damn easy. Lot easier than copying directly on device using USB."
4. Android-"Was that Sarcasm? Nyways, Do you have Notification Panel? Its very useful!!!"
Apple-"No, but we can copy it from you Android"
5. Android-"Do you have quick launch toggles to easily switch ON wifi/bluetooth/data/to mute etc?"
Apple-"I didnt, but I have copied it from you. Shh.. Juz to make sure no-one knows, we call it control center & pull it from bottom, instead of top like you do. Innovation..!!! Tada..!!!!"
6. Android-"Do you have custom launchers/skins/lockers, so users can change the look of device?"
Apple-"No. We dont allow that. Users must use what we offer."
7. Android-"But still Apple, users can Jailbreak & do such stuff"
Apple-"No. We dont allow that also. From now it is a criminal offence to jailbreak. We call it SECURITY"
8. Android-"Do you have NFC? Users need it."
Apple-"No. I already told you Android. Users must use only what we offer them to use. Cant you understand? You are dumb Android"
9. Android-"Are your apps FREE?"
Apple-"No. We want users to pay more & more for any app. You must understand. If they can buy a $700 device, they can easily pay for those apps also."
10. Android-"What about those who cant afford such aggressive pricing? You offer less features in your devices"
Apple-"Who cares? We make devices for RICH. We can sell our devices cheaper also like $300, but we target Rich. For them, there is no difference between $300 & $700. Our target is 400% profit."
11. Android-"Can you transfer files between devices with Bluetooth?"
Apple-"No. Only iDevices coz who cares about other devices."
12. Android-"Why don’t you increase size of your iPhones?"
Apple-"Listen Android. You are dumb. If we increase the iPhone’s screen size, it would replace the iPads. We don’t want that. We want EVERY single user to buy an iPhone , an iPad & a Macbook. So that users can use iPhone for calling/texting only & nothing more. If they want to surf web, they should use iPad coz its clumsy on small device. But here’s the catch. The iPad is juz a larger iPhone, Its limited & cannot serve as PC, so people have to buy Macbook also. You get my strategy? LOL"
13. Android-“You launch iDevices every year without any major improvements, same design, same UI same icons etc. How do you convince users to buy all your devices every year?”
Apple-“ Listen mate.!! When we 1st launched these devices, users became crazy , so crazy that it was far more than our expectations. They started worshipping iDevices & Apple. In short they became iFANs. LOL… iFans are so dedicated & loyal to us that they buy anything we release. I’m surprised to see that it’s the 7th time I released the same device & they still don’t notice that it’s the same as previous one. You must also do the same Android. Copy from Us.”
14. Android- “Sorry Apple!! Android is FOR the users, BY the users and for EVERY user.!!! That is my strategy.”

Anonymous, 06 Oct 2013Sorry, I did not see your needs that only iOS can satisfy. Could you list them? Im musician and apple and all the devs and 3rd gadgets can offer me a lot of things. Android have latency problem while iOS have very very low latency, which is very important thing for realtime playing. Thats why there isnt much to offer for musicians in android world. For example you cant use your android phone as guitar amp for your real guitar. That would be pointless because you cant play the guitar in real time because of the bad latency in android.

It would be too shameful for you to even think about touching anything without the official Apple logo even for a test.
Duel, 06 Oct 2013The point is that iPhone share grew a lot in US in last year, nothing less or nothing more.

I also only gave facts - nothing more, nothing less - from the same nature. And data about market share of mobile phone OSes is countries have nothing to do with market share of mobile OSes in a country. Really???? Maybe next time I should talk about making pies or pancakes or putting up make up in order to be closer to the topic?
Now you can continue your name calling...
[deleted post]You know users prefer different things. It has nothing to do with smartness.
If you like iOS and apple ecosystem the only option is iPhone. If you want to stay in iOS ecosystem you need to figure out, are those missing android features more important for you than what you already have.
So far for example i havent seen for my needs anything which come even close what iPhone offers me.
