Umm I have jailbroken an iPhone & let me tell you, it's not that easy as you say. To root an Android phone is about 100 times easier than jailbreaking an iPhone.

Plus if you jailbreak an iPhone you lose the warranty & Apple blacklists you! (Just kidding, I think.) lol With Android you can unroot & make the phone go back to 100% pure stock, thus not voiding your warranty.

BIG & MAJOR differences there!

That is the beauty of Android, compared to Apple. People love free way better than not free. In essence that is why Android is & will always be #1!

You can always reinstall the stock iOS. As long as you have the stock iOS back on the phone, Apple will honor its warranty.

As far as rooting and jailbreaking. They're both easy and simple. Rooting however sometimes requires just a little bit more - i.e. overlocking, CWM, etc. Still very easy and simple though.

Formerly owning a jailbroken iPhone 4 and now a rooted Galaxy Note, I pay for the best and most functional apps available to me. Not all apps are free for either system. I hate having ads in my apps, so I'd rather spend money and have them gone. Just my preference

Also, unrooting an Android phone does not mean the warranty is still in effect. Samsung actually has flash counters. So if you root and the flash count is up, they may not or will not honor their warranty if you brick the phone rooting it. Check XDA developers forums.

Yes but I am talking about the phone insurance with the carriers more than actual warranty. I should have made that distinction. Sorry about that.

I too rather pay for the actual app with no ads then to have to deal with the ads on the free one, but you & I are a minority when it comes to that. China the world’s most populous country prefers free to paid. That seems to the a pretty common theme across the globe.

So I still stand by my statement that Android is indeed #1 not just only for that reason but for many other reasons that I am not mentioning at the moment.

To each is own, I think it's more complicated to jailbreak, you say it's more complicated to root. So I can say it's a wash.

+1 to you my good man!

Hey, even App Devs need to make a living. In fact they help me make mine so I feel obliged to pay for apps. I remember when Jailbreaking was super complicated compared to the way it is now. But rooting does bring out a whole other beast for the phone. I've been wanting to overclock my Note but waiting for ICS to roll out for it (if Sammy ever decides to in the 2nd quarter *crossing fingers*). We are a rare breed these days in phone arena where we are just avid fans of mobile technology. I'm starting to grow fond of the windows platforms and their new developments.

Me too, I have been keeping a close eye on the Windows Phone platform. I am really interested to see how they integrate Windows 8, Xbox360 & Windows Phone 8. If everything pans out the way Microsoft says it will, WP will be something to watch out for.

I am totally with you on that!

Samsung will get ICS on the Galaxy Note soon enough. Man that phone is so nice. If that phone was for Verizon I would get it in a heart beat!
