    Huh, that's odd...and 99% of your posts don't reflect this at all...

    Most people stand behind what they own, not consistently aim to make points attempting to prove its inferiority.

    99% of my posts? Seems kinda hyperbolic. I'm actually a great contributor to this forum and have helped tons of people (both on and offline to this forum) with their android issues. Just because I don't share a skewed, fanboy view doesn't mean I don't stand behind my product. My next phone will also be an Android phone, and so will the one after that...I'm sorry that my disagreement with bashing a company like a child makes me an unwelcome member of this forum. But that sounds like a personal problem that you have, and not anything that will affect me.

    Right, that's believeable...

    And I don't believe I'm the one with the problem. When you have several people call out your negativity (on more than one occasion), it seems that you would be the one with the problem. I don't understand how you could not see that.

    Now, if I were to be the one with the problem, then we would see several people calling me out.

    I don't think that people consistently being upset with your comments is a mistake by them. You can start to recognize a pattern after a while - well, some can at least.

    So in other words "agree with what we say, or we have a problem with you, right?" I mean the only reason ppl have a problem with me is cuz I don't agree with you guys right? Lol, but apple is the cult...

    Open source and removable battery are pretty good though. I also don't like the simplicity of iphone. I like widgets, and the whole set up of android. The option to download roms, change cpu settings etc. androids are very geeky, whereas iphone is pretty. That's the main difference. Plus I love the huge screen on my phone in addition to 4g.
    I have to admit the iphone gets better with every generation considering the first few I wouldn't even consider smart phones because they lacked multi tasking and even mms! But now they've become great products.

    Whoever says iphone sucks obviously is a hater...cause when it comes to android vs apple I think they're equally great in functionality, just a choice of what you prefer.

    Agree or disagree. I don't care. If another topic gets derailed by this bickering nonsense I'm giving vacations to everyone involved. This is the only warning.

    I swap SD Cards out because its nice to be able to transfer files to a computer without a usb cable.

    Also, go play with your iphone if it miss you feel better. You think iphone users talk about the joys of Android on their forums?

    Also, iphone users use their phones primarily to text. I know several people with iphones who use less than a gig of data a month. I had to jailbreak my ipod touch to get it to do half the stuff Android does out of the box. Itunes is a joke and it takes forever to transfer songs using it.

    Absolutely not. You're definitely entitled to disagree with whatever you want, although I will admit, when it comes to ANY Apple vs. Android thread, you just about always disagree with those in favor of Android. Then you say you're a big droidforums.net and Android supporter? I don't see it much.

    I don't think the problem is with you disgreeing, so much that you put off the image that you seem to be a
    and a
    about all your arguments. As a matter or fact, to get on topic, I disagree with this thread as well, in the sense that I don't believe Apple "stole" anything from Android, as technology drives itself and companies feed off of each others' ideas. It works both ways between Apple and Android. Although Apple's idea of notifications is similar to Android's (but really, how many other ways of status bar and notifications could there be...?), I really don't believe that Apple "stole" the idea.

    You see, that's what I feel is a good way of disagreeing without bashing people and blatantly pissing them off, trying to get under their skin. And I know how much you hate the fanboys, but its just as irritating reading comments from a hater and a basher.

    You know, I used to be the biggest proponent of keeping these threads open in the hopes that maybe people would actually learn from the other systems and learn each has detriments and benefits. They don't and these threads turn pathetic. I must say I am completely let down by the complete lack of maturity that these devolve to. This isn't even worth keeping open, we already know where it will go.

    Congratulations, everyone should be proud. Another Apple/Android thread closed due to people being closed minded.
