    A list of reasons that I don't like the iPhone:

    Screen is too small.
    I am restricted to only one keyboard. You can't have widgets.
    You can't expand notifications in the notification bar.
    No notification led.
    You are restricted to only one texting app.

    We have a common music library legally purchased, in our family laptop. We can't share it between our iOS devices. If Apple wants to stop piracy, they should build their iTunes to recognize legal & pirated music. "Blanket Rule" to increase AppStore revenues is audacity. If my family can enjoy our music which we paid for in our home system, we should be able to enjoy in our devices which we paid for.

    And what's with Bluetooth only for dongles? Can't share camera photos, or does Apple have a copyright on my face?

    What are you talking about? You can authorize up to 5 devices to play from a single library.

    Nope, we aren't trying to make ourselves feel better. We are just discussing what Apple is missing and how complicated it can make things.

    By the way, why did Obama give Apple special treatment when the iPhone 4 and the older iPads were about to be banned.

    " Administration officials said Mr. Fromans decision was made without involvement by Mr. Obama or his senior aides in the White House. A 2005 executive order signed by President George W. Bush delegates the authority to act in cases like this to the United States trade representative, officials said."

    Why did you ask a question you already knew the answer to? Did you even read the article?

    They didn't get special treatment. Samsung was granted an injunction using Standard Essential Patents, which everyone and their mother in positions of regulatory authority have said is totally improper. Given samsungs history of abusing them, it is not surprising the ruling was vetoed.

    Oddly enough, the veto will certainly have a positive influence on a court case involving Samsung and interdigital.

    Why? This is Android Central, which has nothing to do with Apple.

    I'm sure there are other Galaxy forums for you fanboys to gather and rant; don't ruin this one, "galaxyboy."

    Dont understand how people can have so much hate for androids top competitor. They make each other good and push each other. If apple wasn't in the picture android wouldn't be making the big strides they are making and vice versa. Accept the competition and enjoy. The iPhone does a lot of things great just like android does. Just because you form an opinion about it doesn't mean its a POS.

    Really. Let people have their fun. At the end of the day we have freedom of choice. I personally like to choose everything. I am a glutton and eat up every new device no matter what OS is featured.

    You never see a thread like this on iMore, only Android users feel the need for these kind of threads, compensating for something maybe lol? Anyways, since this is about Apple, let me chime in, I used Android for 3 years before I ever owned an Apple product but now, everything pales in comparison when it comes to quality, going from Android to iOS was like trading in a 1996 Ford Escort for a 2014 BMW! Happy Android boys?

    I will say that iTunes is a chore to use and the worst part of using my iPhone. But you can play pirated and legal music just fine using it. You can also share just fine with up to 5 other computers (this actually only applies to video now as iTunes music is DRM free) and an unlimited number of iOS devices.

    My mom uses her office laptop to sync contacts and calender to her iphone. When she connects to the family media server, iPhone wants to "overwrite contents". Apple says you cannot connect to more than 1 PC, which is not only an ineffective way of controlling piracy, but a draconian policy in an era when we have 2-3 electronic devices per person per family. Who are they (Apple) to tell us how to use the devices we paid full money for? Their weekly wages comes from the cash we (consumers) pay. Its like Ford selling you a car & putting a condition "streets are fine, lanes & avenues are not".

    No such problems with the Androids & Nokias in the family, who have far more features & bluetooth that actually works.

    Hi Sting7k, thanks for your clarification. Before I respond, let me state that I don't want pirated music. It's music that we as a family purchase & enjoy.

    My point is that 1 iphone cannot be synced with many computers. Just video is not good enough. Androids offer the flexibility of syncing anything from any computer.

    The only positive point about an iphone is good quality hardware & decent camera.

    To the defence of the Android fanboys on the forum, the guys over at Crackberry are even worse IMHO. Few are the days where an Apple related thread is not posted. I love the ones where they rant about raving lunatic iSheep that accost them in clubs and on the street for their choice of platform. Those threads are pretty fun to browse.
