You're right, it is a waste of time. You say you like the new phone and suddenly you find yourself attacked by people who spend their lives obsessing over every decision made by a company they claim to hate, being accused of being a pathetic, brainwashed sheep and God knows what else. Who needs that.

I don't go around threadshitting every discussion of rival products, and I suspect the same is true for most iDevice owners. It's too bad these product launches bring out the worst in the Android fanboys.

Time to go read.

Really? What do you call this?

Quote:
Since there are no Android-exclusive developers of any importance, the app store is lacking, and Android gets iOS' hand-me-downs a couple years after they've already come out, it can't be the ecosystem. Since mobile traffic from Android devices represents a pittance of the global total relative to their market share, you have to wonder what people use their Android devices for. Are they even using them as smartphones?

There's one big difference, I don't make frivolous claims. I stand for what I say.

You make hay about not "falling into facile traps" but your last couple of responses take the cake for not understanding what's going on.
Apparently you are not aware that Samsung alone is selling way more smartphones than Apple?

Twice as many, to be exact.

Samsung Completely Destroyed Apple In Smartphone Shipments Last Quarter

Samsung sold twice as many phones as Apple in Q2, say analysts

Says a lot about this "apple is destroying all the competition" claim...

Obviously, some people did not take my warning seriously. Thread closed.
