I honestly don't care about specs. Especially when the software and hardware are optimized. That is the advantage to having one phone and one OS. The 5MP camera on the iPhone takes far superior pictures than even the Bionic, and retina display looks better than any phone out there. Not to mention the smooth operation of iOS, and its stability.
So when you are talking about specs, how about you look at the overall user experience instead of some numbers on a sheet.

It appears you had a no school day. Get off moms laptop and get back to watching Wiggles

Can't wait for that innovative notification drop down....oh....nevermind, my Android phone already has that......wife will like it, though...
47. gallitoking (Posts: 4718; Member since: 17 May 2011)
well you are a good husband so please tell your wife about force closing... opps not if she has the iphone...

I find it kind of funny how they got the calander icon set for date of the event, the clock icon set for the time, and the map icon set for the location.

Man I just got my droid charge last friday f**k. Should I exchange it for a iphone 4 then sell it and add money to get a 5. I got 4g in my area but my droid charge crashes left and right.And I getting tired of android . Everyone that i have had lock ups , FC's, or just bricks

Hmm to people complaining of the exact same issues. Constant force closes. Sounds familiar.
Guys try an iPhone. You will love it and never go back.

That's not true I have an iPhone and love it. I have a Druid x and loved it. I think iOS and android are great in there own ways. I am going to get an iPhone 5 only if it has LTE cause after playing with a bionic with LTE have to have it. If the iPhone 5 does not have Ito am getting either bionic or the samsung droid prime or whatever it's called. LTE is crazy fast where I live even faster than my wifi. And I am grandfathered into the unlimited plan. So I can tether my ipad2 to it.

I took my Charge back after 7 days, just because of all those reasons, plus loaded with a bunch of crap apps i couldn't get rid of, dont regret it a bit, never had an I-phone, so maybe i will try one.

stability is the key to IOS. You just dont have any crashes on it. Even my sgs2 has its own share of crashes.

Here's where I can agree with a lot of iPhone fans. VZW is going to be the death of their own Android devices. Bloatware can of course be removed but for those who don't want to or don't know how to root their devices, they are going to become iPhone owners. Vzw's gift to Apple!
But also, if you getting force closes, first, update your apps. Keeping your apps updated is the best way to kill the gorse close issue. I don't think I've seen one in at least the last year now. And don't think the iPhone is immune to force closes. If you use up enough of your memory, you will find yourself in the middle of an epic battle on Eternity Warriors, then suddenly and without explanation, you're looking at the main screen.

On top of the phone icon, it shows '1' so i think there's only one phone to be announced..wether its the iPhone 4S or 5, only time will tell..
21. Hallucinator (Posts: 344; Member since: 24 May 2010)
The one could stand for alot of things. 1 Universal sim card, 1 more thing, of course 1 phone.
26. taco50 (banned) (Posts: 5506; Member since: 08 Oct 2009)
I'm excited for this launch. On a side note fandroids are terrified and turning up the hate already. It will only get worse from here. Apple could come out with a phone that reads your mind and fandroids would still bash it.
Network dood I haven't seen you trolling Apple articles for a while buoy must be pretty scared of the impending massacre.
Between iPhone being launched on more carriers and windows picking up steam soon androids days are numbered. Apple is already handing androids it's ass where it matters, revenue and profit. Time for the headshot, market share.
30. SuperAndroidEvo (Posts: 4813; Member since: 15 Apr 2011)
taco50 you are so right, I am losing sleep over the iPhone's upcoming launch. I am stressed out, I know now what those Foxconn workers go though. My life is so miserable I may even go beat my wife! Am I making myself clear how silly & inferior you sound right about now taco50? Do you even need to type such crazy zaniness? lol
This year is ending, I hope in 2012 you turn a new leaf & just show some maturity in your everyday comments here on PhoneArena.com. lol
Your comment in a total nutshell equals to instigation.
Just don’t know what to say to “Time for the headshot, market share.” WHAT?!?
I guess too much Gears of War 3 for you huh taco50?
35. Thump3rDX17 (Posts: 2160; Member since: 10 May 2010)
i'm playing too much Gears of War 3 and i don't sound nearly as ridiculous as taco50. maybe he's still at an impressionable stage in his childhood life. xD
40. SuperAndroidEvo (Posts: 4813; Member since: 15 Apr 2011)
Hell yeah me too, the game is intense on its hardest difficulty! That is why I love Gears of War 3.
45. Thump3rDX17 (Posts: 2160; Member since: 10 May 2010)
yeah, i'm liking everything but sawed offs. they are way too over powered to face when i want to have nostalgic Gnasher duels.
51. SuperAndroidEvo (Posts: 4813; Member since: 15 Apr 2011)
Yes I totally agree that sawed off it beast, Epic Games will send a patch to correct it. No game is perfect, but you are 100% correct!
49. gallitoking (Posts: 4718; Member since: 17 May 2011)
you probably spent a good 3 minutes writing that post... in a Apple article.. dude you are a troll or a closet Apple fan.. just saying....
62. gallitoking (Posts: 4718; Member since: 17 May 2011)
hey thumper.. didnt mean it for you it was for SAE, trolling but thats how we roll me and him.. sorry couldnt understand what you wrote... I guess is payback for how I write right?...
68. Thump3rDX17 (Posts: 2160; Member since: 10 May 2010)
no that was just me being silly. xD
i knew you weren't talking to me, i was just saying SAE and i are pretty used to typing super long comments. we used to fill pages ourselves.
80. SuperAndroidEvo (Posts: 4813; Member since: 15 Apr 2011)
gallitoking you are right it took me actually 2 minutes & 53 seconds to try to be as wacky & zany as our friendly neighborhood taco50. lol
So how are things in Arizona? I was away on a trip so yesterday I missed taco50's & darth8ball's STEEL cage DEATH match they were going to host in Phoenix Arizona. But seriously is everything all good by you?
82. gallitoking (Posts: 4718; Member since: 17 May 2011)
SAE is good to say hi to you... if you ever in phoenix we should hang out... yea yesterday dumb8ball had a bad day.. he is usually not like that... so I was surprised... but ohh well.. waiting for the iphone is my bday on Oct 4.. so it will be my Bday gift...
91. SuperAndroidEvo (Posts: 4813; Member since: 15 Apr 2011)
That’s cool definitely if I am ever in Arizona I will check you out. I would be lots of fun to go out & hit some bars with you. Ohh happy early b-day to you my good man!
100. gallitoking (Posts: 4718; Member since: 17 May 2011)
cool dude.. thank you.. not saying how old.. but nto too far from you..jejeje..take care...troll ..lol
168. taz89 (Posts: 2014; Member since: 03 May 2011)
yeah and android could have a phone that also reads your mind before the iphone and you will say apple invented or we dont need it...just like before ios had wallpapers,folders,multitasking etc apple fanboys excuse we like are phone simple we dont need them...basically anything android has,you say its gimmick and everything but when apple finally get it,its the best thing since slice bread right.
31. Birthday present! (unregistered)
This is sooo awesome! It means the event will be held on my birthday, how great is that!!! Quite a nice birthday present lol!
32. taco50 (banned) (Posts: 5506; Member since: 08 Oct 2009)
Should I refer you back to your rudiclulous post of saying iOS hasn't changed since 2007? Or agreeing with remix hat no one cares even though YOU took the time to read AND comment?
Don't worry man I know Apple product launches are a hard time for droidbots. The media frenzy, the crazy lines, the insane sales numbers and seeing all the happy customers leaving with their iPhones eats you up inside.
You guys will be trolling every iPhone article extra hard now just trying to convince someone, ANYONE, that android is better. It won't work just like it hasn't the last four years.
39. Thump3rDX17 (Posts: 2160; Member since: 10 May 2010)
nahhh, i came to witness the hype and to shut down trolls i see on Android articles. if you read AND comment on Android articles wouldn't that indicate that you care about Android's development and in that case insinuate that you're well aware of how close for comfort Android is to surpassing iOS for good? :P
43. taco50 (banned) (Posts: 5506; Member since: 08 Oct 2009)
Fact is that every single Apple article is filled with android trolls bashing the iPhone. Android articles on the other hand rarely have iPhone users comment. Only one that trolls them is Miz.
What that suggests is iPhone users are happy with their phones while android users are insecure about their choice. If you're happy with android why would you troll every Apple article?
52. Thump3rDX17 (Posts: 2160; Member since: 10 May 2010)
well i'm definitely not one so from where i stand you and the other iPhone trolls are the initial annoyances. i see you on quite a few Android articles taco.
iPhone users are the most brainless segment of all the smartphone fan boys and it's funny to point and laugh at them. yes, i came here just for you my dear taco. ;)
63. taco50 (banned) (Posts: 5506; Member since: 08 Oct 2009)
What android articles do you see me post on that don't involve Apple? Almost never. 2nd if you see my posts I'm usually responding to numerous anti Apple troll posts with some logic and then fandroids get upset because I called them out. Just this articles troll posts:

I know what you mean I feel like Rip Van Winkle after reading all this bogus Apple hype. I feel like I have been asleep since 2007! I wake up now in 2011 to the same sh*t. iOS is the same in 2011 as it was in 2007! lol
I must be in the Twilight Zone
9. dacastrator posted on 1 hour ago 1 4
I see iFags going crazy again. We're looking at the LATEST and GREATEST iPhone that is soooo 2010 in specs.
16. dacastrator posted on 1 hour ago 4
What do you expect a-hole? when they released your single core super boring iPhone 4, dual cores are already up. Apple is so innovative arent they. So iFags like you are iDiots.
10. networkdood posted on 1 hour ago 1 3
Can't wait for that innovative notification drop down....oh....nevermind, my Android phone already has that......wife will like it, though...
70. Thump3rDX17 (Posts: 2160; Member since: 10 May 2010)
logic? you really call that logic? lawl. xD
76. taco50 (banned) (Posts: 5506; Member since: 08 Oct 2009)
I just used some logic here by showing examples of all the troll posts. Your response? " Lawl"
138. Thump3rDX17 (Posts: 2160; Member since: 10 May 2010)
i said lawl because you don't respond to any troll comments with any logic, maybe troll logic but not the real thing.
69. remixfa (Posts: 14255; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
and you and gallito.. dont forget you and gallito
75. taco50 (banned) (Posts: 5506; Member since: 08 Oct 2009)
Actually I don't post on android articles unless they involve Apple. I very rarely do anyway.
48. SuperAndroidEvo (Posts: 4813; Member since: 15 Apr 2011)
taco50 your comments are like the circus. I read the Apple articles so you can amuse me with your flagrant BS that spews from your mouth. Here is taco50 that man who cleans the elephant sh*t during the circus acts. Ladies & gentlemen let’s see what our wacky & zany taco50 has to say today! Every time there is an Apple article THAT is what runs in my head, & taco50 you have provided some good times for me. Whenever you post on an article it's like when Charlie Sheen got roasted on Comedy Central last week, I love to read everyone’s response to you! lol It's classic good fun. Thank you taco50, you always put a smile on my face! lol
64. taco50 (banned) (Posts: 5506; Member since: 08 Oct 2009)
You're posts are always hard to read because you're grammar is so bad and you have the thought process of a child.
72. remixfa (Posts: 14255; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
and yet you converse regularly with gallito, who couldnt make sense if he had someone else typing it for him. Me thinks you speak iDiot better than english, taco.
81. SuperAndroidEvo (Posts: 4813; Member since: 15 Apr 2011)
Ok here is my English teacher again, did I get an A or D taco50? Please I really want some grammar help.

i heard that iphones make for good dildos. ummmmmm yeah yeah..they dooo!!!! oh hello what's that it smells like 2007 down there? my bad.
56. gallitoking (Posts: 4718; Member since: 17 May 2011)
next week will finally give the haters.. more to hate.. crush any phone currently on the market... so you guys have a week to come up with excuses.. please come up with new ones other that they millions of consumers are brainwashed.... that was funny back in 2007.. not 2011.. one week... go....
66. taco50 (banned) (Posts: 5506; Member since: 08 Oct 2009)
Some more played out excuses
It's market share
iPhone is outdated
Lol but you're right it will be the same played out ones. Fandroids aren't innovative enough to come up with something new.
74. Thump3rDX17 (Posts: 2160; Member since: 10 May 2010)
i haven't heard Droid Does in forever. xD
man that was a great ad campaign. it was like "SIT DOWN APPLE! DROID'S IN TOWN NOW!"
87. SuperAndroidEvo (Posts: 4813; Member since: 15 Apr 2011)
taco50 all the Droid commercials are now about the Bionic & LTE, something your iPhone just can't understand!
99. SuperAndroidEvo (Posts: 4813; Member since: 15 Apr 2011)
No I have WiMAX since the HTC Evo 3D is in Sprint's network not Verizon's network. Why? WiMAX kills your iPhone 4’s 3G speeds. I don't need have to have Verizon to know LTE is the best, why do you think Sprint is supposedly going to have LTE by Q1 or Q2 of 2012?
103. taco50 (banned) (Posts: 5506; Member since: 08 Oct 2009)
So according to you logic your phone is an outdated pos because if it doesn't have 100% latest specs it's worthless.
109. remixfa (Posts: 14255; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
please stop making me side with taco.. i really dont like it.. especially since he never ever ever gives me credit.. lol.
But the iphone, like many 3g GSM devices can hit up to 7.2mbps. Granted the average is lower than that (2-6mb/s), but the average most people get on Wimax is 4-9mbps. While its tons faster than CDMA 3G which maxes around 1mb/s in real world, its not that much faster than GSM HSPA 3G. I know my 3G vibrant hits 5's pretty consistently. Tmo is faster than ATT, but its not going to be that much of a difference.
124. SuperAndroidEvo (Posts: 4813; Member since: 15 Apr 2011)
remixfa I am so sorry but I have to disagree with you. Granted those may be theoretical speeds but the iPhone 3G, the iPhone 3GS, & the iPhone 4 that we had & have on AT&T's network NEVER even got close to that theoretical speed of 7.2 Mbps. Nowhere near. I know this for a fact, we have had every iPhone including the original EDGE iPhone. I travel all over the U.S. & in all the big cities I travel to the worst was Dallas & even there I averaged in WiMAX 4G 4-5 Mbps. Everywhere else I get on average 7-9 Mbps which KILLS the iPhone 4. Where I live I average 6-11 sometimes 12 Mbps. I have NEVER LOST to an iPhone 4 ever with Flash always on. I kill the iPhone 4 by many seconds, as many as 10 to 15 seconds. My Samsung Epic 4G & the HTC Evo 3D are undefeated against the iPhone 4 when it comes to surfing the web. So sorry remixfa I am very confident an iPhone 4 can get those theoretical speeds of 7.2 Mbps if it was the only phone surfing the web at the time of the test other than that I have never seen it!
171. remixfa (Posts: 14255; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
lol. the evo 3D better beat the iphone4 in browsing, its a dual core, it loads much more at 1 time through the processor. Thats as much to do about processor as it is about internet speed.
besides, we all know ATT sucks. Sorry, I was using my real world Tmo 3g speeds and inferring them onto ATT 3g. :)
174. Thump3rDX17 (Posts: 2160; Member since: 10 May 2010)
the browser is a big factor too and Safari might close that gap a little even as good as HTC's browser is. what's the best performing browser you can get on an Android device these days anyway?

You have sided with me quite a few times over the past few weeks. I do have to give you credit for that.
