    I updated my ipad 1 to ISO 5 the other day and apple added the pull down notification bar and their version of lattitude "find my friends" ... if iphone is all that, why do they have to get ideas from android..

    BTW their notification bar is pretty weak...

    LoL, Exactly! Anyone seen Android? It's an iPhone rip off lol - for 2 years I was a faithful Droid X and then Droid X2 user. I raved about Android and looked forward to the long awaited updates hoping they would make my phone better, more stable, better battery life, etc. After going through several Droid X's and then several Droid X2's I had a friend that had an iPhone and wanted to go back to Android after missing some of the customization and Android features. We swapped phones straight across and I can say that I will never go back to Android again. The iPhone just plain WORKS. No freezing up, no random rebooting. No slowing down after a few weeks. It is fast, reliable, amazing battery life and works every time. Oh yeah, and my buddy that I traded...he ended up selling the Droid X2 and getting another iPhone because he said that he couldn't go back to the slow buggyness of Android after using the iPhone.
    And yes, Android was a huge rip off of iPhone lol, and I can say that after having used Android for 2yrs. Long live the iPhone lol

    Really? I had a DroidX, hardly had any issues. Battery life was phenomenal. Also please explain how Android ripped the iPhone off? IOS is a f&^*^*ng MATRIX OF ICONS! That's all it is. It's the Android App tray! Until recently IOS had NO FOLDER SUPPORT, NO PROPER NOTIFICATION SUPPORT, NO MULTITASKING and it still does not support an LED. WTF are you talking about? IOS is a smooth piece of crap compared to Android. And the iPhone 4s is getting horrendous battery life, plus that POS SIRI works when it feels like it. And yes IOS 5 RIPPED OFF Android and is still way behind ICS.

    I love FAN BOYS who say Android is a iPhone rip off ....... its like saying Ford ripped off Chevy in the old old days. Its like Gates and Jobs in 1977.. what came first, Windows or Apple? .. both based on basic II.. Just one is open and the other is closed. Gee... sounds familiar....

    Android came first. Alpha was no IOS 1. That is true. But the foundation of your "IOS" is Linux... is Android.. that home screen you see is just an enhanced form of Alpha.. just in a closed "company contolled 1984" form..... so chill. OK pumpkin?

    THEN Google bought Android. Made it open and inclusive and free-to-choose to fit their business model.... rather than closed, exclusive, and communistic... they took the alpha foundation and made beta.. then cupcake.. donut. Eclair. Froyo. Gingerbread. Honeycomb. And now ICS.

    1) People need to research and know facts before posting

    2) if a person goes through 3+ devices of the same make and model while other users of the same device never have issues... then logical states 1 thing..... USER ERROR!!!!!

    3) I hate morXXXX... I mean " non-technical humans"... who blame the OS due to USER ERROR.... android, iPhone, blackberry, windows morXXX, I mean " non-technical humans" , are guilty of this...

    Why are you still posting on this forum then?

    As for the battery life, iPhones are 3G devices so big whoop. Now if Apple made a dual-core 4G LTE iPhone and it was fast, light, not bulky and had a great battery life using 4G LTE that would be impressive. But they don't.

    Motorola, however, does with the Razr Maxx. Maybe iPhone 5 will be a 4G LTE device, but the current iPhone 4S is not.

    I just looked in here, had to correct something. IOS is not Linux, it is UNIX. Linux is not UNIX, but a copy of the design aspects. Anyone who thinks unix is Linux, or the opposite, needs to get their facts straight.

    Rip-off would mean Android looked and worked exactly like iOS. Instead they took iOS and made it 10x more awesome. Customization, openenss, functionality, etc.

    Also, iOS does not "just work." No OS is perfect and iOS is no different.

    I'd say with JB, you're right.

    ICS was getting there.

    GB and prior didn't work as well as iOS. It might have been able to do more stuff, but the things iOS did it did better.

    The stuff that both could do perhaps. Android was probably still getting some of the kinks out of their OS back then but ICS is when it proved what it could do. Though Gingerbread was pretty decent guy for my first Android experience.

    Well, I guess I might be in the minority. I only care about features I'll actually use, and I care about those features working seamlessly. I don't even use half of the things my Galaxy Nexus can do, I would imagine, but that's okay.

    Well not everyone cares about the number of features, just what the features are.
