I like the accessories and all, but having a proprietary connector when everyone else uses micro usb now is just a pain in the butt. It would be nice to have universal docks but that's about to change with iDevices anyway if they finally go with a larger screen. Say bye bye to all those quick dock stereos and what not. Though I do suppose Apple or an aftermarket vendor will likely release an adapter so that all those old peripherals don't have to go the way of the dodo.

She had an iPhone 4 for a few weeks now. And she feels more comfortable using mine and her Android phones. I got lost using the iPhone 4 the first time a few years ago...that one button setup.... Still had miscues when she got it...and she wanted me to help her learn how to use it....lol. I picked up Android alot quicker coming from Win Mo.
I had to go online to find where Blue tooth was on the iPhone. She thought it didnt have it. We were both using to looking in Networks on Android.
A female co worker...who is tech saavy....had an EVO since 2010. Just got an iPhone around the same time my kids mother did. And she misses her EVO. She says it less now..but there was a time she was gonna take her iPhone back.
Ease of use....intuitive...its all relative. Depends on who you ask, a matter of perspective... Although...she seems to use her iPhone more than her Android phone. Says her Nexus S gets stuck, sticks too much... So she seems to have gravitated towards the more smoother interface.
In that sense...Apple was smart for making smoothness a top priority.
apple changed the way we view phones. I love android but must admit it is where it is because of its competition to the iphone.
Apple made it cool to own a smartphone and pretty much made it a "must have". If it weren't for the iPhone where would we be now? I honestly think most of us would still be using those flip phones and this forum might not even exist. Jobs wanted the iPhone to be a gamechanger and that's what it did. We all can thank Apple for how much it changed the mobile phone industry and got other companies to pay attention to what was once a fairly quiet market.
People can hate and denial of what they want, but that day has forever changed smartphones. Whether you want to believe it or not is totally irrelevant. You do not want to be Apple, but in complete denial of what this phone is for the industry is simply ignorance. Of course, Android is now to go and won the game, but at that moment there was nothing even remotely like the iPhone.
Same here. I love Ford Sync with my X in my parent's F150.
