well, he's alive, but he no take jokes well

Typical of IT.

I get paid good money to show people the advantages of Android > iPhone and do it everyday. I'm not wasting my time doing it here for free. Different strokes for different folks. If Apple works for you, keep on keeping on.

Yea ha ha real funny joke, I'd call that a personal attack which would normally result in a banning on most forums.

So you can't back up shit....typical of someone in a customer support role...see how that works?

If Apple is so great, why do their fanboys get so mad and defensive? LOL!

I'm not customer facing.

Serious question, then who are you trying to convince?

I'm not an "apple fanboy" I was forced into an iphone because my old POS Motorola windows phone took a shit backpacking and AT&T didn't have crap for Android phones(2+ years ago now) at the time....I actually have an open mind and the IP4 had just came out so I said fuck it I wanted to see what all the apple craziness\bullshit was about since the girlfriend loved hers and was riding my ass to buy her an ipad.

I do really like the Apple "infrastructure" iPhone\iPad+airplay+Apple TV is still unrivaled by anything made by anyone(to my knowledge) and we use it constantly.....if Google would get their shit together and create a cheap "apple" TV type device I'd be thrilled to look into making the jump once my current iPhone dies.

I could care aless what phone people choose to use, what does piss me off is stupid people who have probably never owned an iOS device(also works both ways apple nuts are dumb as hell) talking about how shit apple is this or that and then are unable to provide me with one legit reason why Android is so awesome and apple is sooo "shit" it's just stupid and childish.

It's no different than people blindly ripping Burton or Microsoft because their ontop from a size and public perception perspective, either platform will do everything 99.999% of people need it to do really really well so I just don't get the hate\bias either way.

That "infrastructure" is their proprietary system that locks you to their program (iTunes) instead of allowing a phone to operate in mass storage mode.

That's one of the main reasons I sold my Apple products. iTunes continued to get fatter and fatter with each upgrade to the point that my old computer couldn't run it. So I bought a phone that plugs into the computer and shows up as a flash drive. Drag and drop files over. With all due respect that is significantly easier than having to import files into iTunes and then synching the device.

Add to that the million things that my phone will do that an apple won't.

Anyway, to each their own. Our company is starting to move from Blackberry's to iPhones so I may be "forced" into using an iPhone again. But I'll never purchase one for my person usage...

Actually there are many things that already "rival" the iPhone to Apple TV connection. Apple TV in itself isn't really anything that mind blowing, it still lacks many features of the Boxee, Roku, and Google TV options. DLNA support has been on phones for quite some time.

Google specifically, has Google TV which is being built INTO many current TV sets (Sony, etc.) as well as another option, the Google Nexus Q which is another way to stream / access internet based entertainment.

As for other Google integrations - I actually think they outdo anything Apple can currently provide. The whole Google+ thing actually works really well. For example, say you are on your computer and you're on Google Maps (which blows away Apple maps, as has been heavily documented throughout the media world since the ios6 launch) you can save a location (add a star) and boom, next time you open up Google Maps on your Android phone - that location is saved.

Same integration with Gchat. I can be talking to someone on my work computer, walk away from my desk and just continue the conversation on my phone. Same with your bookmarks in Chrome - automatically add to your Chrome browser on your Android device.

Same with photos - you can edit your settings in Google+ so that anytime you're on a wifi connection (of even just a regular cellular connection, or you can turn it off, etc.) it will automatically upload your photos. This doesn't seem like a big deal, but it does it without you having to do anything and your photos are saved automatically. Compare that to the iTunes world where you HAVE to sync to get any of the photos.

In my opinion, the benefit of Android over iPhone (iOS) is the ability to do whatever you want to customize. You want to change your keyboard? Download a new one. Download 10 different ones if you want, and pick the one you like best. You don't like the stock browser? Download Chrome, or Firefox, or Dolphin HD, etc. You want widgets - add them, change the size, change the location, etc.

When you have an Apple product, you play by their rules. I had the OG iPhone, 3G, and 3GS before switching to Android - and there is no way I'd go back. Yes, the new iPhone is a very nice looking phone (black aluminum = awesome looking) and it has very good performance... but it still doesn't have ALL of the features of the top phones (of any OS) - which is sort of showing that Apple is now playing catchup instead of leading the pack.

You can say "Oh well I don't want NFC anyway" but why? You're telling me that if they made an iPhone 5 with NFC and one without NFC and they were both the same price - you would choose the one without?

Same thing with the larger screens. Steve Jobs said '3.5" is the perfect size for our customers' (or something to that effect). He passes away and the first thing they change is the size of the screen. Remember the whole "You're holding it wrong" thing? Get real. Arrogance.

Lastly, you (HikeswithDogs) didn't mention this but I always see Apple people claiming it, is the fact that Android is so "fragmented" because some devices don't get the new updates or newest OS refreshes, when ALL iPhones can get the latest. The problem with that is, yes the iPhone 3GS can get iOS6 - but it doesn't get the full range of features. It doesn't get the new Turn-by-Turn navigation, it doesn't get the new Panoramic camera option, Siri, etc. Same thing for the iPhone 4 actually.... you're telling me the iPhone 4 doesn't have the power to do Turn-by-Turn nav or Panoramic camera?

Or is Apple just trying to get you to upgrade to the new iPhone? That's a rhetorical question, as that is exactly what they are doing. They did it with the 3G to 3GS, giving the 3GS video recording and touting that as a feature, even though people had jailbroken their 3G even before the 3GS was announced and got video recording. They did it for the 4S, which got Siri but the 4 didn't. It's all about the $ for Apple.

It's not all apps all the time. What about full blown websites that are flash driven?

Hell, most apps are worthless dumbed down versions of full websites. Years ago we all dreamed of having mobile devices with full web browsers. Now that we have them, everyone clambers for apps that are often more watered down than the old mobile websites. Goddamn people are dumb.

I really don't have anything against Apple products. They make good hardware with easy to use albeit limiting, software. Then they market the holy fuck out it. That's Apple's true brilliance - marketing. They're unreal in that department. My problem with Apple is the company itself. They're cutthroat as fuck. Not that other companies aren't, but for whatever reason, the Apple sheep completely ignore that with their Apple stickers right beside their Greenpeace and Coexist stickers. I just chuckle.

Flash has been used on every version of android except 4.1 and later dumbfuck. And still even then Android is kicking Apples ass with there fucked up maps and there static home screen. Not to mention you cant even attach anything to a email on the iPhone. Psss have fun in the dark ages of phone tec sheep.

If you guys want to have fanboy wars do it in the comment sections here: Video Games, Wikis, Cheats, Walkthroughs, Reviews, News & Videos - IGN So much fanboyism on that site it will make your head spin.

I for one have a preference of one over the other, but I'm not going to call people dipshits over first-world consumer products . At the end of the day we all use what we want to use - no one is changing anyone's opinion here - just blowing steam.
