    Default Re: When will the media and public's love affair with the iPhone end?

    I have been using iphone's for a long time and just bought the samsung note 2 firstly i am no fanboy of any company nor will i ever be. I also have a macbook pro and a gaming pc. Now i like apples iso because its simple to use and just about anyone can use it. Now with android its open like windows and you can do so much stuff with it. But there are more apps for iso then android. They are both great os like how mac and windows are great. It depends what you want from a device or computer. I got the samsung note 2 because of the big screen and you can do so much other stuff like have widgets etc. People of both sides just complain the other is better because they only have that one or they are just like a sheep lol. Any way you will not know what is better for anyone else apart from your self because we are all different and we all like different stuffs. I really don't get why we have these kinds of threads. Its not helping no one but only causing problems

    First windows is not open it just is more heavily supported in the PC market.

    Second iOS does not have more apps than android anymore. You could make a quality claim but as far as sheer number android is now neck and neck.

    I actually don't mind iTunes as a player. I've also used it for years and remember some of the bad releases but there are some things I do like about it and have used it as my daily player for years. I've tried many other players and just never found them to be as good. It could also be that I have a very fast computer so I don't notice the problems with lag etc anymore.

    Very true, you hit the nail right on. I don't think it's going to be long before millions more switch to android now that they truly created a great user experience( Jelly bean!). I came from an iPhone as well, and was fed up with Apple's OS and childish games they try to play as a "revolutionary" company. Everyone else is light years ahead of em!!

    I guess with all of your 8 posts you would be what is called a troll? Maybe not Anonymous69. Nice name.

    Your gmail account is a login to your account which is no different than having to sign in to your itunes account. You don't have to use Gmail for email.

    The only time public's love affair with the iPhone end. Is when the public uses an android them self and see how great the os is. But every one is different tho so if the public's don't ever try an android they wont know what there missing. Anyway i have been using mobiles for a very long *** time since the time of the them brick phones to brick smart phones. And i have to say if you want the best smart phone now then the note 2 is the best and i have had many smart phones and different os like sony ericsson p900 etc. But we need competition or else companies will get lazy and there wont be any new inventions

    How many replies and views does this thread have again? Seems an "Apple thread" pops up during every major phone release recently.

    I'm not starting the conversation about Apple in phone forums here, I'm just joining in on the discussion.

    Threads like this make it seem like Android fans are jealous if this supposed love affair with that the media and general public has with Apple.

    My point - if people wanted an iPhone right now, they would have one. Yet there are more Android phones than iPhones.

    If there was a love affair with the iPhone, it's already over.

    Personally I see it more and more. The success of the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 have proven that to me. And I see more and more of them everyday.

    So go ahead and call me a fanboy. Even though it's a personal attack on me, I can take it. That's not my credibility at stake.

    You picked one snippet of my entire OP, distorted the context in which it was written, and missed the original point of this thread.

    I'll say it again: this was never intended (at least not by me) to be a "let's bash Apple" discussion. That's why I pointed out the things they do well IMHO, along with a few things I don't like about them. No, this was really more about the creepy love affair that exists, and not even so much from fanboys. (Yes, Android has creepy fanboys, too.) But the ubiquity and omnipresence of all-things-iphone in our entire culture and public psyche is just...well, it's been said. I just wondered out loud if/when it will end.

    And for the record, the BlackBerry to which I was referring was the BB of 5 years ago...not the BB of today. I apologize if I didn't make that clear.

    Carry on.

    Maybe I did, but I hear you on the "love affair" perspective and I think it's true too, hugely. I reflected on that snippet I quoted because I think that that's the whole point of Apple in the first place and that their products live on that as a premise. Which is why it DOES appeal to the masses. It's a culture, and it's high tech, polished, slick, cute, and dare I say "just works!"

    This is my first and possibility last iphone. I can't out into words how restricted it is. Don't get me wrong for people who just text, talk and browse its good for that it the phone is if you want more.

    For instance all my droids were slow phones, evo design, evo 4g galaxy nexus that some pink kid scammed me out of cuz the esn was bad so I couldn't use it. These phones had heavy lag and was annoying but the multitasking in android is very good. My favorite app was tube mate which allows me to dl YouTube videos and I could leave the app and the download would run on the background while I do something else but on iOS I can't do that, I have to pay for the same type of apps but its not a true download more like a cache so it's stored where I can't retrieve it but if I leave the app the download starts all over again.

    The music app for iPhone doesn't display in the pull down notification so when I want to change songs I have to reenter the app of double click to bring up the list of lastly used apps.

    Trust me its annoying and I'm thinking of selling and getting a galaxy nexus.

    It's all good, man! No one can argue that Apple's products and business model have been wildly successful. They are perfect for many, many millions of people. And I have no dispute with them at all...just like Android better because it suits my personality and need to tinker.

    As an American company, I hope Apple continues to be successful and make a lot of people wealthy in the process!
