    Nope. The hardware (which was the main problem in my opinion) looks like the same crap they've been pushing out for years.

    I don't think they will return to their former customer numbers but it could turn some heads and bring some people back. It looks pretty slick to me and better than Windows.

    Agreed, Android has much better hardware and I think Windows like ios; doesn't look very customizable.

    When I originally decided I wanted to add a line to try a new platform I looked at windows phone for all of a day. Their app selection is terrible. I couldn't find most of the apps I use regularly, so I lost interest. It's a shame too because the hardware and software both look very nice and aren't like the Microsoft of old.

    Maybe give it some more time? The OS is still fairly new.

    I think it's all about not making bad choices now. If Windows or BlackBerry don't have the app selection then people will opt out. It's a chicken and egg conundrum to some degree.

    As for blackberry hardware I'm not sure what you are talking about. The last few BB devices were very well made and very nice looking. They were still blackberries but they have always been tough devices. The new ones look pretty nice. I hope they make a come back but they will not get any of my money regardless.

    My main problem is the lack of major improvements in the OS, then specs being outdated and the issues/bugs that pop up with the hardware/software. And no apps as well.

    I have a friend who works for Best Buy and he tried out the new BlackBerry 10 device and said it was really really nice he was quite surprised by how cool it was. I hope that it's really good and that everyone gets a fresh look at blackberry again. And that they can get a lot more app developers on board because even though blackberry is getting a bit of a bad rap these days they still do have a lot of people that use them especially outside of North America. There certainly further ahead than Windows Phone is right now. At least in terms of overall users.

Now if an artist was OK with that because it led to fame and fame led to the ability to sell out concerts and selling out concerts led to money in their pocket, well good for them. But that doesn't mean that other artists should not be able to profit from the distribution of their own work.

    The real problem with napster was the large scale and ease of the theft and how until the lawsuits started, to the average Joe, it seemed like there was nothing wrong with what they were doing. It was on the internet, and if it was on the internet, it had to be OK, right?

    It is okay, I see you are cooling off. Fyi, I have just stated "opinions," nothing to call out really lol. I would have stayed and got into a healthy debate, but all that was way to personal and heated. No reason to "call people out ever really," just state your truth, provide the evidence, and carry on....
    I used Napster when it was not a crime. Pittiful me.

    What do you sell? I will buy 10 and support your cause :-)

    I dont want to see "Wannabeyou" go either. I have gotten infractions here, so I don't even mess around with dancing on the lines of forum rules (I try my best anyhow.) If someone states something I disagree with, it is beast to avoid jumping on them, and quoting them with judgment. It is not my job, and I don't need to prove any points. I don't agree with all of the drm laws, but I do play fair and abide by them. With disagreement, the best debates just happen when people stick to their truths, and evident their arguments, that way we all have fun and discuss! Legit? He he

    Just felt the need to chime a day late, rather then getting into it yesterday. Thanks AC for providing a most awesome platform for us to discuss, and a place people can feel safe to do so. I love this place! Much respect to all!

    I just dropped my iPhone for my note and do not regret it. I have not been able to find anything that my iPhone could do that my note currently can't. This thing even has its own version of siri.

    Right path in most ways? Yes.

    Right path in all ways? No

    Form and visually they are only half a step better than they always have been. The cliche "cheap plastic samsung phone" still holds an alarming amount of truth even for their latest. And their phones, while dont feel bad in the hand, don't feel great either.

    If they fix these 2 things along with making touch wiz a little less bloated visually and they will be come the android power house they have been advertise as. Until then, they will still have the sigma of selling cheap crap compared to the iphone "premium"

    This is a problem across android and not just with samsung, but samsung is one of the top offenders. The only oem stepping up to the plate with this is surprisingly moto. Their new HD line looks and feels great and solid with great materials.

    That "cheap plastic" is far more durable than you think. I have thrown my rocket full force in anger during an argument and although the backplate sim SD and battery flew out the phone sustained no damage. The screen has no cracks or scratches. My wife can attest to the force at which this phone has been thrown lol. No not at her or because of her.

    The only thing I think is better on iOS now is the apps. I think the Play Store has come on loads and gained more features in the last few months but I still think that you when someone makes an app they make it automatically for iOS and the good apps on iOS that get ported over to Android mostly get done badly. Other than this I think that Android excels whereas Apple just bring out the same bland products each year and have never really changed much since the iPhone 4. I always have preferred Android since I got my first Android phone but always hated how iOS was such a smooth OS. That was the only reason I would ever buy one but now I've got my Nexus 4 which is unbelievably smooth its unreal it smashes iOS into the ground. Basically no one will stop buying iPhones because they're something which people see as cool to have and they're easy to us.

    Please enlighten me: give me a couple of examples of POPULAR apps that suck for Android but are fantastic on iOS. Keep in mind I've got 4 Touchs in the house, so I'm not totally unfamiliar with iOS, which I've abandoned in favor of Android so it's not like I don't know about iOS app quality (at least for the non-iPad versions). I dropped out of iOS before the iPad had received many iPad-specific app updates and we are on a PHONE forum, so the tablet apps aren't really relevant anyway.

    While I agree that in general, app quality on iOS is higher than app quality on Android, this gap is closing - and closing fast.
