    Default Where did this whole "iOS is just simple" lie come from?

    I hear that all the time about iphone.

    What about it is so simple compared to a Galaxy S3?

    Want to make a call? Press the phone button

    Want to take a picture? Click the camera button.

    Want to send a text? Press the button

    For basic features this phone is just as simple as an iphone and even simpler setting up the app market, copying music (can be a real headache on an iphone) closing all open apps, and a couple other tasks.

    Then using the Facebook app, if you want to refresh you can't just press menu then refresh. You have to close it then create open it

    Want to turn off wifi because it's holding onto a weak connection? On the iphone you have to go through your settings, then turn it off. On the GS3 you simply pull down the notification bar and tap the toggle for that, gps, Bluetooth, flashlight, hotspot, airplane mode, auto rotation and even adjust brightness.

    Much easier on this phone than the iphone.


    You don't want to tinker around under the hood? Then don't.

    You don't have to because the OS just works, right out of the box at that.

    So where did the whole "iphone is just so much easier" stuff come from?


    And no, the point of this thread is not to bash apple (I'm a former iphone 4 and current ipod touch user myself) but just wondering where this idea came from?

    Look at the mobile phone landscape when the iPhone first came out.

    The people stuck in the lie haven't noticed that its been 8 years and things have changed.

    I used to be a fruit head, just got my first android. All phones have learning curves!

    Go sit in on an I phone workshop at the apple store. People are convinced by their kids to get the phone because once you figure it out, you won't mess it up.
    Mostly.

    I totally agree! When my teacher got her iPhone 4 two years ago ( she still has it, she's 52 ) she said she was scared to open the box because she thought it will be too hard to understand, then opened it and said it was easy and simple. But since her two year contract is over she's looking to get a new phone and I tried to explain android to her but she always says not convinced and thinks android will be too hard and I try to tell her it's the same if not better, she doesn't believe me.

    Seriously they have workshops for the iPhone, wow. Its user interface is so simplistic a crippled/disabled monkey could learn how to use it.

    Seriously though I see way too many children showing their parents how to use them, its foolproof really.

    Android isn't much different (in terms of usability) than how the op described iOS albeit a few extra customization features here and there.

    Why do iPhone workshops surprise you? It may be simple to use but that level of customer service and support is unmatched.

    Got nothing on iPhone as I came from iPhone myself but when it comes to sharing nothing beats the simplicity of Android. In iPhone you have to copy paste link to share to other apps that aren't integrated to the OS. And I love widgets. iOS doesn't have widgets. I use widget all the time.
