My old Nokia 3310 works as intended but is now out of date. People go on about iOS being stable, smooth ect.. But when apple announce a new feature everyone loves it even though its been on android since day one. Like Facebook integration ect... Apple drip feed all the features to its customers because they know you will pay for it as they now "have you" hooked. They manage to change the world with the original iPhone and built up their fan base then. Now they are just about holding on to those people.
The best thing about apple is the build quality of their phones, they are the best out there with in my opinion the best screens.
Younger people have gone with android yes, that says a lot for the brand. In years to come those people will be older and still picking android because apple doesn't give us the features people want.
If you see the flaws in androids source code then I'm sure they do too. I'm not worried about a bit of malware. I've never come across a single person who has been moaning about there phone having a virus or they have been hacked. Anyhow, nothing is safe. Psn got hacked, Xbox live got hacked, everything gets hacked at some point. If people can jailbreak an iPhone they can produce malware for it.
Apple know google "android" and Samsung are a threat, that's why they are cutting all ties with them. If they know it why is everyone on here blind to it?
That all said, I like my iphone. But it would be nice to be able to lose iTunes, drag and drop my music and movies to it without any conversion. Maybe have some expandable memory too rather than pay over the odds for a 32gb or 64gb iPhone.
if u like ios, get apple. if u like android, get an android phone. nuff said. no phone is superior to the other. its catered to the users.
You are incorrect. Because for a phone to be a phone it must be able to dial and receive calls. Android based phones, thru no fault of the users, can miss calls because the user simply installed an application. That can not happen with iOS as of today.
Now if you wish to discuss that microcomputer side of the device, by removing the requirement of it being a functional phone, then I would tend to agree with your opinion.
well, i have had many calls missed with my iphone. my dad as well. i called him on his iphone 4, and he never even recieved the call. not even a missed call, nothing. he had full service. not blaming it on ios or the service or anything, but it happens. and vice versa ( we are using ATT ). when i had android w/ verizon, i never had an issue, but then again it could be because verizon > ATT. but i still think its weird that when i have full service and missing a call, it doesnt even notify me.
not trying to start a debate, just saying everyone had their own preference. i like IOS because its simple. there are things android phones can do that my iphone cant, and vice versa. so to me no phone is better than the other.
i switched to the gs3. it was an awesome phone. did not miss the iphone. but because the phone is so huge, i was unable to hold it with one hand and type at the same time. had to switch back to my iphone 4.
God what a slap in the face.
Apple is such a fashion statement, I wish they focused on performance a bit rather than making minuscule incremental hardware update each year and calling it revolutionary each time.
Sucks that I actually love iOS and how it's written. Catch 22

^ its not.
back on topic. im still using an iphone 4 right now. home button contact sucks registers only like 1/2 the time
thinking if i should just pick up a used iphone 5 right now, or wait till a 5s comes out and get it unlocked without a contract, or get a 5 when the 5s comes out so the price is less. any opinions? >.>
If you haven't already tried to reset the home button, then try this real quick..
Hold the sleep/wake button until the slide to unlock prompt appears. Release the sleep/wake button and hold the home button until the slide to unlock prompt disappears. This helps my iPhone 4. I have to do it about once a month though.
On the note of the iPhone 5 vs. iPhone 5S purchase, I think I would just wait and see what new features (more than likely hardware upgrades) the 5S has, then make my decision based on that.
Although, the android/iOS debate needs to stop now. It's not on topic with this thread.
Let's get back on track so we can leave this thread open.
