[deleted post]I am a Sales Manager and in my workplace all of the field team use mobile devices extensively.
When it is contract renewal time, one workmate goes for the iPhone every time and his reasoning is "because it is an iPhone". Did you even consider or even look at any other device we ask? "Nah, iPhone is better" is the standard response. He then spends the next two years moaning about what he can't do on his beloved iPhone.
What's a mobile file explorer he asked the other day. File system...what's that.
He can't even send me one only email with multiple and seperate Word, Excel, PFD, jpeg, GPS link, mP3, vCard etc attachments and gets frustrated. All has to be done on seperate emails.
If you want to be an iSheep...shut up and get on with, and stop the moaning because it is BORING.
sutton0028, 18 Oct 2013i think millions of android users dont get it either... he is not alone. and we thought hard. ... moreSutton, point #1 is a fantastic point.
I think there are a lot of people who are buying the iPhone because they prefer the smaller size. And Apple do that well.
I would just like to start by saying a phone is a phone i have spent many years being a andriod fan i have had samsung devices and htc devices i recently went from my samsung s4 to a htc one i enjoyed the htc but decided it wasnt for me so i went back to my samsung when i went back to it i found myself bored with it there is nothing special about the s4 yes it has all the air gestures in it but unless u want to look like a retard waving your hand around in the air u dont use them i have now taking the leap and gone to apple and im glad to say i love it i love the size i love how easy they r to use to me it comes down to personal choice i personally got sick of basically caring a tablet around in my pocket and im sorry but if samsung and htc r all out saying bigger is better then why the hell did they bring out the s4 mini and htc one mini they r the same size as the iphone 5 so im soory but apple fans and andriod fans r as bad as each other they bitch and whinge about everything oh and to clarify the reason i went to apple is because my Samsung S4 was crap kept freezing and shutting off on me so how about samsung and htc make a device that doesnt die on u after a month of using it i have had my iphone for almost a month and it hasnt skipped a beat
sutton0028, 18 Oct 2013open your eyes for just a bit... iphones are the top selling because there are no ohter flags ... moreSo Blackberry should be doing amazing because they're the only flagship using BB10 right?
why is bigger screen is better?
with bigger screen, thus bigger device
with bigger device, thus bigger battery
with bigger battery, thus more power
with more power, thus better hardware.
gam30toronto, 17 Oct 2013You don't get it but millions of us get it. so it's time for you to THINK hard on what is wron... morei think millions of android users dont get it either... he is not alone. and we thought hard. there is no answer.
here's what i think:
1. the only reason apple is stuck with 4" is because android makers have little interest in 4"... so it seems 4" is the only possible way for apple to develop.
2. WHO'S THE MANUFACTURER OF IPHONE'S SCREEN? SHARP AND LG. where both of them are android manufacturers. "so let's give them the screen which size we dont really use for androids."
oops... Apple users ego have been stepped on with this article. Let the comparison war begin.
fonehunter, 17 Oct 2013And yet, justin bieber uses iphone. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V6ieTPL3bK0 one strong reason i dont buy iphone.
- click to read, 17 Oct 2013Really?
So how come iPhones are the top selling phones?
How come there are so many small... moreopen your eyes for just a bit... iphones are the top selling because there are no ohter flags selling phones based on ios.
try comparing ios versus android... ios is a midget.
I am not sure if the entire article is valid. But there is one absolute fact: With a considerable same price level, android has a quite higher level of hardware.
*Hardware-wise = iphones are overpriced (compared to most android phones with the same level of hardware)
the title is very obvious, can you compare the lcd of both phones if the other manufacturer is using the same technology from their Television sets?.. (i.e. Sony is using bravia technology to their smartphones)btw, nice to see alot of comments from those fanatics of their smartphones. VERY LAME and HILARIUOS... ROFLMAO..
ALonZo, 17 Oct 2013IOS 7 really is not the best OS. Ive had iPhones for 3 years now and recently made the Android... moreI agree with you sir... I made switch too and realize that iOS is boring compare to android.
ALonZo, 17 Oct 2013IOS 7 really is not the best OS. Ive had iPhones for 3 years now and recently made the Android... moreIt's funny cause I'm from android but now I buy iphones. what can you say about the heat on s4 and new lagging games on HTC one? iPhone is best
IOS 7 really is not the best OS. Ive had iPhones for 3 years now and recently made the Android switch to a HTC one. There is a massive difference which iPhone users don't realise until they actually switch. Iphones are great smartphones, there is no denying that. But they really do control your phone. You can't customise anything except the background wallpaper and lock screen. You're stuck with the keyboard, look, app look, everything. If you're happy with that, great. But if you want personalisation and be free on what you do with your phone, Android is the phone os you want. I downloaded iOS 7 on my 4s and found it just basic when comparing to my HTC one. If you've never used Android you'll think its "wow". If you've used Android you'll just laugh and say "is that it".
Anonymous, 17 Oct 2013ios 7/iphone is so much better & in so many ways than any smartphone.Hopefully for the next model, if they keep the same 4" size, they'll start selling them with binoculars.

iPhone 5S is tiny, useless and with short battery life. For me, 5" is bare minimum while closer to 6" is more optimal. Also, A7 was rushed and flawed with blue screen of death. Since Apple didn't want to listen to their customers and offer a larger iPhone I ended up getting the Note 3 which is much more practical and useful.
