Blah, i just broke down last year and bought one of those new sonatas. I got it for 12500 with 10 miles on it after 3 weeks of online haggling lol.. its frikkin sweet. no horsepower, but other than that u cant beat the options and quality for the price.

Next car is going to be 2 door and loud.. hopefully without a top lol.

I am not buying iPhone 5. I played with iPhone 4 and honestly the only thing that I really liked about it was screen resolution. Other than that iPhone became boring for me. I find android devices much more fun to use and call quality is SO MUCH better. I know this is just my opinion, but I am sure many will support it.

He said existing smartphones are better. There's two flaws to his argument. One is that the bionic is not an existing phone and two is that the new iPhone isn't release so how does he know other phones are better.


sounds like a blinded by hatred google fan

I'm gonna give it a shot if it comes to Sprint from my Epic. The only phone that I am considering besides the iPhone is the Galaxy 2!

While I think the survey is a bit off... it is also VERY telling...

Ok 35% want the new iphone...

Almost %50 of respondents said they want battery life, big screen and 4g...

iphone has battery life... ( I would assume iphone5 will be ok in this area)

iphone 5 will have a bigger screen, everyone is saying edge-to-edge on same chassis size as iphone 4... (how big is that?? seriously I don't know, as big as 4.3?)

iphone 5 wil have.... 3G...

So while most everyday consumers what the iphone 5, it will only meet 1 or 2 out of 3 of their highest wants.

Does this mean they KNOW iphone with be 3G and this is OK?

Do they know there are larger phones out there?

Do they think it will be 4G because that is all the rage this year?

I do NOT agree that if you put a iphone, Galaxy S, and Bionic side by side the customer will see "Night and Day" cause frankly that is NOT the case. They take pictures, surf facebook, play angry birds, txt and IM... Both can do those things with flying colors.

Chances are they will get what they are used to (previous android/iphone user) or what they are attracted to in a 5 min demo which does not show off EITHER OS/phone properly.

What you WILL see with a customer comparison, is a % (not a massive %) of people coming in thinking they want an iphone and choosing an android phone. Mainly cause they just don't know the quality of the competition, and obviously price and form factor options as well. They literally know only iphone and think android is just a cheap generic option (I think android hardware has gotten a ton better in the last 2 years, especially style-wise).

Taco, you do know that you are the worlds largest tool right? oh, you do, good. And given you comments on what ppl write and your ability to twist thier words arounds, dandirk states thats what most ppl think and its because tools like you and the its my way or the highway attitude that most ppl are misinformed. Sure the first iphone was good in its time but how many versions later are we shown the same thing and expected to buy it. Apple has become what they used to be against now instead of making better products, which they are fully capable of doing, They change 1 minescule feature and watch as ppl like you jump to buy the new one eventhough the old does the same thing your pathetic taco

Yes, because Android, a company that was founded in the United States, bought by a company in the United States, and first slam dunked into the public consciousness by a United States wireless company with a phone manufactured by a company based in Schaumberg, Illinois, which, by the way, is in the United States, is a "cheap Asian knock off."

How are the suicide rates at those Foxconn (Asian) plants these days, Taco?

"How are the suicide rates at those Foxconn (Asian) plants these days"

Below China's national average, actually.

To say that is to do an injustice to how Foxconn treats its workers, stealth. You know it and I know it.

What's not factual about anything I've said about Android's national roots or the worker abuse at Foxconn, taco?

what.. that foxconn had 17 suicides last year and things were so bad taht they installed jumper nets around the buildings?

Or that the hastily made ipad2 factory BLEW UP killing quite a few and injuring many more? Thats what happens when you build an entire factory in 3 months...

Actually, dandirk, everything you say makes total sense. If you walk into your local Verizon store, and all these devices are out, will you have a sales rep who will walk you through the in's and out's of the devices? Ask you what you need or prefer? If not, they will steer you to what they prefer or what will push their paycheck better (I would, being truthful). The iPhone has the best brand associated with it. Anyone with only a basic knowledge would associate it with a great device. My co-worker has an iPhone 3G that I have played with to help him get it set up. He loves it, and knows nothing about any other device, and could care less. My wife has given me a list of things she wants in her next device, and completely trusts me to pick her next phone. She could care less. If these two were polled as to their next phone, would their response be educated? Or just the name of the device they have heard the most of?

I find it funny how people who say Android is for poor people, but 80% of iPhone owners are on a family plan and can't afford the own plan because at&t wants to much money for a security deposite and can't afford a plan over $100. But I like most of Android users pay $200 for Android devices which cost the same amount for a iPhone. IPhone that is $300 only has more memory but for less then $65 you can get a 32gb card so with a phone with 8-32 GB built in for $200 plus a 32gb card is still half the price the higher storage iPhone is. Sorry but THOSE are true facts and it only blinds the uneducated iPhone users who don't know how to count. I paid full price for my EVO 4g, so how does that make Android for poor people when again most iPhone users are on a family plan because they can't afford to pay for their own plan but yet still say Android is for poor people.

Nahh. It's the other way around. There's a reason it's called the ***Phone. Why pay way more for a piece of crap that's obviously far more inferior.........That's all ***phones are good for....selling for RIGGED inflated profits.
Just watch...***phone 5s will easily sell for at least $1500 on ebay in the first month....only cuz there's a crapload of suckers who wank off 50/13
