    Interesting thread.

    I have had so many droids,
    Og droid
    Droidx
    Rszr
    Nexus

    I live my nexus.....jelly Bean is so smooth and fast.

    I want to try out iPhone 5 but not sure.

    Maybe galaxy s3..? But it feels plastic.

    I don't think I could ever go to an iPhone because one of my most favorite things to do with my Androids is setting up the home pages and designing some of my own widgets. It would drive me crazy not being able to do that.

    Same here! Sometimes I want nothing on my home screen except the background and clock, other times I may have it full of awesome icons. I couldnt handle looking at the same screen day in and day out. Another thing is I can not stand the keyboard on an iphone.

    On my Nexus7 I have a different photo slideshow on each screen, no icons on the homescreen because they are all in the dock, my ICE and radio toggle widgets on the lockscreen.
    On my phone I have my icons custom made to theme with the wallpaper on 2 screens and a slideshow on the 3rd. Radio toggle and ICE on the lockscreen as well. Same with my Galaxy Tab
    Yes the homescreen on my Ipad drove menuts, especially having to do several steps to turn radios on/off.

    Not according to Schiller. He said, "That's normal." Which is just a cold and dick-ish thing to say...but that's the way Apple operates. Always has been.


    Yeah, it's not even the best smart phone out there...nor is it on sale at some ridiculously low price, like on Black Friday or something. Those folks just line up like brainless cattle to buy the next Apple product. I know that's an overused phrase when talking about fanboys, but, damnit, it's a ridiculously accurate phrase. How else would you describe that many folks lining up in those long of lines to buy an inferior product?? Apple lives by P.T. Barnum's motto, "There's a sucker born every minute." And that's 100% true with iPhone fanatics.

    If the iPhone where the only smart phone out there, it would be a great phone. The problem is, it's not the only phone out there... there are many phones out there far better. We know this, because we use those phones. But you can't tell that to any iPhone fanatic (I've tried). They like the iPhone and aren't going to let facts & common sense sway their opinion.

    Some of my friends who own iPhones, would like to switch to Android, but they are too entrenched in the Apple ecosystem (iMac, iCloud, iTunes, etc.) and they feel it would just be easier to get the new iPhone than to switch everything over. They are essentially in iPrison.

    I'll say this about the iPhone. Except for Apple Maps, what it does, it does very well. The problem is, it doesn't do a lot.

    Here is an article on how Steve Jobs, at the last moment before mass production started on the original iPhone, gathered his team together and showed him lots of scratches on the screen of his iPhone prototype he had been carrying in his pocket. He was furious and wanted a scratch resistant glass screen instead of plastic.
    Steve Jobs' desire for scratch-resistant glass is why the Apple iPhone is not Made in America

    Hmmm, I guess lack of quality control is now "Normal" at Apple.

    I literally can't decide.

    Does anyone know what is the next rumored Samsung?
