AnonD-45523, 24 Jul 2014receiving features that were present on android cellphones since 2011. using an iphone stil... moreThe majority of android smartphones are either mid ranged or entry level that cannot run the OS properly. The fact is that android flagships don't sell so well. S5 couldn't sell a lot more than 20 million units. Other android flagships sell less than S5. Since the introduction of iPhone 5s, apple has sold at least 70 million units. An iPhone 6 with big screen out of sapphire would kill any android flagship. The android is surely losing the top end sector of the market to the iPhone. And without much sales of flagship androids the future doesn't seem so rosy. Then, of course, android is against the trend for more privacy. By the very same nature of Google that relies on tracking its users, there is nothing google can do to change that. I love the fact that Apple introduce duckduckgo, for example. It listens to people concerns and follows the trends.
This is Sony NWZ-ZX1 128GB Walkman vs iphone/ipad quality:
And thats exlusivity a 700 dollar Walkman.Iphones surpasses android phones in term of sound by miles.
Also I found iphone/ipods in term of music surpassing any device. I have a custom in ear headphone with a dac i had so many problems with android phones ipods/iphone capabilities are collaboration are just insane
John, 25 Jul 2014If you dont need to spend all your free time looking for a useful app, or dont waste time play... moreI don't play games first of all.My apps is Bloomberg professional,s&P iq, open table among others. Not only ios is much much professional for apps suggestion but they have exclusivity of some very useful apps as hopstop. The rest read why i had hate android, not only that but apple is a politicized and takes a huge role in politics apple does not take that much a role. If you watch featured you tube videos they promote politicized issues. The main revenue from Google comes from being a search engine. That with mistakes and take in account with what I said and the fact that all their products collaborate with each other, and you have a nightmare mess. Google even sells the data to prism and gets data from government.They are the main reporters to nsa.While apple has a far more limited data agreements with nsa. Other thing apps that are installed in android take access to almost everything even though they have no need to get to like a notebook getting acces to camera or mic which was approved in android store. Really android is a mess. No thanks Bb died long time ago time accept that no professional uses anymore.

tony, 25 Jul 2014Also another thing in term of security on the apps it approves apple is way ahead of android. ... moreIf you dont need to spend all your free time looking for a useful app, or dont waste time playing games all day, then the best os is blackberry by a long shot. Give it a try and you might be really surprised.
Also if you search ex I hate democrats in Google and same gmail account you associate it with google store in andoird and phone number they create a profile and suggest apps that have to do with democrats or pro since google analytic capture only the word not the entire sentence.I had nightmare with google apps getting suggestion not apps similar to what i had i had but what I detested or was a trend. Was almost like a logical fallacy. Its was insane. Google is notorious for many problems. Im going back to ios as fast as they release it i never had this with ios.
Also another thing in term of security on the apps it approves apple is way ahead of android. That is another thing I miss.
Great improvement use to use ios 5 with cydia . I'm switching form android with google constant data leaked and data collection last thing is to go back to android. Had the worst of experiences with idiotic profiles created by google almost border retarded and app suggestions that had nothing to do with what i had or liked. Never happen in ios store. Google app store drove me insane just hated it. The rest cydia is still there. Im out of android and google services for good and back to ios.
I still feel Apple should consider providing the call making & receiving option for the Ipad with SIM.
Nothing new. Just a lot more features copied from Android and others.
I already runnin it..:-)
I found itunes more usefull. Better arrangement of my media than an open file ststem
Lololol, far behind the android. Now i think they have half of the android features in ios8. They cant beat android even after 5 years.
I read all feature list thoroughly (yes all pages), but in the end I feel disappointed, because I don't see any significant changes. Most of those features can be found easily on other mobile OS.
I do hope Apple can bring something unique and interesting in iOS 8. But seems I get my hope too high.

I disagree with one statement:
"And it's Apple after all, so the safety of your personal data shouldn't be a massive concern either."
No. Quite the contrary, with iOS you don't have total control of your own data.
yeah, 24 Jul 2014People keep saying that all new features in iOS are already in android. that might be true for... moreyou JUST contradicted YOURSELF!!HA!these are two DIFFERENT operating systems.what this article is stating is that APPLE is finally letting their guard down,SORT OF.semi "open source"i like ipods and iphones but REFUSE to give in to ITUNES every time I want to do something to my device.F that.
In our country.. Apple is a symbol of prestige and luxury. Even people squeeze their pockets, choke their neck and dry their stomach just to have these wanthing-a-mobobs.. its for the rich.. me i have got a huawei y511 and it stands out.. just the camera is a major problem. android is a poor mans apple.
