The funny thing about Android users is they always seem to feel the need to justify using/having an Android device in comparison of an iDevice. It's so pathetic the lengths to which they go to [prove] why Android is "superior".
Firstly, a device that needs security software to prevent and rid itself of malware automatically makes it inferior compared to another device that doesn't need it.
Secondly, mentioning technology (NFC) that isn't readily available everywhere or used by major corporations doesn't make the device better. It seems that if Apple employs a new technology, businesses and corporations are more willing to adopt new technology, not with Android.
Lastly, if Android is so much better, why is it that people flock to iDevices, camping outside for days instead of flocking to a release of a new Android device? That right there proves that the general consensus is that Apple is a more popular company with more loyal fans who love their products.
You Android drones are the most pathetic bunch of people. You all seem to hate the fact that millions of people love Apple and their products that you feel the need to lament Apple's success and call out others for their differing views. It's pathetic and only shows how sad your lives are when you seek to steal the excitement and joy from others, something you all desperately lack.

It's a silly comparison but does point out the the most claimed "open" OS is actually really limited by device limits and even more so by lack of manufacture software releases.

1) why apple fans get angry when people post things about comparing iphone to android? You guys need to know that some of the threads here include news about android devices which makes anyone in favor of those devices be able to post..
2) you guys say ios7 is a new software with new features? Go on YouTube and search where ios7 features came from. The guy shows evidence as far as 1900s from other companies and devices.
3) apple didn't invent fingerprint tech...it was already in Motorola atrix like 2-3 years ago.
4) bottom line If you like style and want to show off generally in public you would choose iphone. If you like having device with best internal specs, larger screen, open source software you would pick android.

3) No one said Apple invented it, they ADDED it. So again... Your point??
4) Basically: Choose the phone that better suits your needs.

The fact is that Manufacturers and carriers are slow to update either because their own crap skins get in the way, or they use it as a tactic to sell their newer handsets by denying updates to older devices. And that's all entirely wrong and entirely preventable.
If Google had any guts they'd step in and make some moves to prevent this activity and force updates. The easiest way would be to deny Google services to any devices that have a minimum spec list and are not updated to the latest OS within a limited time period. I bet you'd see updates coming out like crazy is Google did that. But since all Google is interested in is gathering up your personal data and couldn't care less how badly manufacturers and carriers treat you, Google won't do a thing.
So, while I agree with you it's not a fair comparison, it is only because of how broken the Android updating process is. And that's all the fault of Google, the manufacturers, and carriers. So don't cry foul when it's your side that's busted.

First of all I would like to say that I have had samsung note 1,2 and pre ordered 3, galaxy s4, iPhone 3G to iPhone 5 and stopped there.
1) I have never seen any of my friends or me getting any sort of virus on my android device. So If you know your tech and how to use your device this usually never happens. People point out that iphone doesn't get virus, I don't remember exactly but while back there was PDF exploit that people had to jailbreak to patch it.
2) NFC might not be used much but it's a FEATURE that is available to use if want to. More features make devices more competitive in the market. I don't use it either on my android phone but jut a thought.
3) I have never seen a single line at any of stores here in Bay Area, California. It's populated place and whenever I went there to buy a iphone there was no one in line (not in atnt store, best buy or apple). I have seen half mile long lines on Black Fridays though.
4) all your arguments/ facts are invalid from my point of view.

2. The same can be done with Android as well. android started out taking features from iOS.
3. Motorola didn't invent it either. It was in laptops long before it was ever in a phone. Apple does own the company now.
4. So people only buy iPhones for showing off? You just lost all credibility. I use both iOS & Android. iOS is my main choice just for the fact it runs smoother and I have less issues. Longer battery life with more usage.

Best example is notification center and shortcuts to phone settings. This had been done by third party devs way before iOS or Google had it, yet the FanDroid are screaming about it in iOS 7 and pointing out that it was in Android first as if Google invented it. Those guys love to pretend Apple says they invent everything when Apple never says it themselves, yet they are too shorsighted to see that many features they use were around long before Google or Samsung stole them.

Most feature on Android and iOS came from the jailbreak community or what ever the Android alternative is
Edit: we also have one issue Android users don't have, they can downgrade to any firmware, if we make a mistake or something goes, wrong we get stuck on the newest firmware with no way back, yet

2) my point is apple stole features or used features from other phones so it might be new to you but it's nothing exciting for me. The main features in ios7 are from jailbreak community and some from apps like chrome etc...
3) if you read earlier posts on this and other thread, people are suggesting that its new tech and they never seen it before so I was pointing out the fact. Also, I highly doubt the fingerprint on iPhone 5s will work correctly at all. The sensor is too small for some people with bigger fingers and I have a feeling people are going to experience a lot of problems.
4) your forehead might be red please stop face palming.

Lol! I love how you tried to make your argument sound legit by saying that SOME Android devices are NFC capable! Even if they do have NFC it's not like you're using it all the time. The fact that Apple is so in sync with their devices and OS just goes to show you how fragmented Android devices can be, you literally showed that Apple was better at something than Google/Samsung. iOS 7 now has Airdrop that allows users to transfer files between devices over wireless. So do you still want us to, "wife that sh!t from our mouths"? Haha! We understand your trying to make Android seem dominant, but its not going to work....we know why we like Apple more!

Uhm, I thought this was an Apple iDevice forum.? It's funny that the android community keeps a check on things here. Makes you wonder................

1) exactly you just restated my point. Everyone has their opinion...I didn't lose anything there. I didn't say which iOS is better. I'm pointing out the fact that which device is more easily customizable and has more features.
2) yes but I don't want to get too much into who stole/ who invented as we all know most features are taken from other companies and given their own "look". I am not pointing fingers at apple. I'm just saying I don't see anything exciting in their work anymore. Took them 3 or 4 years I believe to change the screen size and to only find out they made it longer but not wider.... I have lost most of my respect towards apple the day iphone 5 came out.
3) I didn't say Motorola invented it. I said it was in that phone 2 or 3 years ago so it's nothing new. Having finger print tech in laptop is different than mobile. The idea might be taken from laptops but having it on mobile device is different...
4) that's what I feel from my personal experiences so yours might be different. If you really know your tech idk why would you even go for iphone anymore. I'm currently using iPhone 4S to type this as my note 3 is on preorder. This phone has crashed over 100 times yesterday due to shortage of RAM.
I know right . I look at most popular device forums too.
I agree...those are valid facts

id still have my iphone if it wasnt for the following reasons:
desperately needs a bigger screen, or at least an option for 5"
user expandable memory
option to install apps for myself without a jailbreak
if they had those i would have stayed with apple
09-19-2013, 10:47 AM #38
Exactly. I moved to galaxy s4 and note 3 for the same reason. I felt too constricted with iPhone. I love to watch videos and surf the web. Therefore, bigger screen and higher resolution is a necessity. Expandable storage is another good feature. If apple makes 5 " phone, 3gb ram, 2.0ghz+ processor, expandable storage, somewhat open ios so we can drag and drop files rather than usin iTunes, I'm sold.
