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. :)

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.

dude. even 3G GSM devices don't get anywhere near 7mbps. xD more like 2-3mbps. 7mbps is more like what AT&T's HSPA+ gets.

Dude taco50 I never said that, WiMAX was the first 4G service ever in the U.S. Until Verizon dropped 4G LTE, Sprint's 4G WiMAX was the best. So the HTC Evo 4G when it came out was indeed a truly revolutionary device. I have good tech on my HTC Evo 3D right now with 4G WiMAX. I average where I live 6-11 Mbps. I am very happy with that. I would like to see your iPhone 4 even come close to that! lol Ohh & nice try to put words in my mouth. taco50 keep fighting the good fight! lol

I know, right? I've been around some, pissing off Taco as usual by suggesting that his good buddy Apple *just might* have started fudging their seemingly miraculous iPhone sales and financial standing. How have you been?

By the way, would you be interested in joining a circle on Google+ for Phonearena alumni? I've had the idea brewing in my head for some time now.

You're deliciously condescending. A troll says things to deliberately upset people. I don't, but I find peoples' reactions amusing anyway.

Yes, I'm actually pretty sincere on here. What's wrong with that? You're sincere too, in your belief that highest sales means that Apple MUST be the best, and that Android is a complete pile of copycat s**t.

You have your bulls**t beliefs, I have my (not bulls**t) beliefs. So what?

Why come in here to hate? I dont get the point. Obvioulsy you Apple haters are reading all the Apple news. So you must have some kind of interest.

You can say anything you want about Apple and the iPhone but on Phone Arena they gets the most comments, once again making Apple more popular. Thats counter productive if you ask me.

If you iPhone haters really what to get back at the Apple lovers then just ignore the Apple articles posted on the site.

yeah i'm interested. the iPhone launch is a big deal, to say otherwise would be foolish because Apple is still a major acting force in the world so i'll be looking forward to seeing what Apple brings to the table however from what we know it won't be able to topple the might of the Droid Bionic and Galaxy S II variants.

Don't really get why Android Fanboys like to go to Apple articles to troll aorund and vice versa. I mean, come one, prefering an OS to another is a subjective matter. In my opinion, both OS are great but both have thier flaws too. I know this cause i used to own an iOS device (iPod Touch 4G) and i always play around with my gf's Android phone. Am currently using a Windows Phone.

Before bashing another OS, i suggest you use that phone first for some time..I know since i've tried WP, iOS and Android. Personally i prefer WP but i respect if someone else prefer Android or iOS cause they are also great OSes!

What I don't get is why iPhone fans think they have exclusive rights to all iOS/iPhone/Apple articles!

I also don't get why if an Android fan makes any kind of comment, positive or negative, in an Apple article, why they instantly form an angry-villagers type mob, with sticks, torches and pitch forks.

And I really don't get is why iPhone fans always assume Android fans have never used an iOS device. Many of the Android fans here actually use, own and even troubleshoot iOS devices for many iOS fans. Most people here like all technology and don't feel the need to limit themselves to commenting only on the phones they own. When you have knowledge or experiences with many devices or OSs, you can comment in any with confidence because you know your stuff. But many iOS fans seem to only know iOS, so they often seem to be your typical rabid fanboys to the rest of us. Don't get me wrong, not saying all iOS fans are fanboys, but these seem to be the loudest voices.

No one cares if people comment on Apple articles. It's the constant bashing of the iPhone and Apple users that we don't like. Just look at the articles today. One troll comment after another.

I think you got every right to go after a rabid Android fanboy. But just about any comment coming from an Android fan about anything Apple gets blasted, no matter how accurate triggers instant anger.

144. taco50 (banned) (Posts: 5506; Member since: 08 Oct 2009)


umm comments I go after are always biased and troll based.

If someone says android has navigation so I prefer it I have no problem with that. Saying stuff like

iOS hasn't changed since 2007

Apple users are sheep

iPhone isn't a smartphone

iOS is android 1.5

Apple is evil and I hope they're banned from the whole world


These are all examples of troll posts that I respond to.

I'm sure thats what you THINK you do, but I'm not sure the people you have attacked will agree with that. Any criticism of Apple, means you will hear from taco, guaranteed! Well, we'll say 90% of the time.

This phone would be for small markets that dont have LTE because why would you get a mi tier phone (iphone 5, iphone 4 s or whatever) when you can get a better phone in a market where you can take advantage of super fast connections. If anything the next iphone would be the one to get.

Man what a bunch of nerds taking a phone manufacture to heart. Why do people take this too personally, as if Apple or Google was their fathers busniess and they had to defend their family honor lol. It all comes back to the same point....as smart as they get, it a PHONE!!! if the only big thing in your life is following your phone like its your religion, then theres something wrong with those people. All there is too it is to figure out what youre looking for in a phoneand get that, dont take it personal, its not your kid or family memeber, its an electronic device. I went from droid x to iphone 4 and now to thunderbolt becuase of 4G, but who knows, my next phone will depend on what im looking for next, if Apple impresses me which it has, i will choose the iPhone, but if google impresses me with the droid prime, then ill get that. Generally for me, these are the reasons i would go for either Apple or Android:

Apple iPhone:
Ability to jailbreak for vast free quantity of premium applications!!*****most important reason
Great design, very premium feel
Ease of use, and very user friendly, ex. highlighting and copying text from email and browser with ease and no need to select an option for it.
and etc.....

Android:
Ability to use as a flash drive to easily transfer files in and out wirthout going through syncing or conversion such as apple iphone.
Full flash based internet, is important for me because i watch alot of flash based video.
Fully customizable, to get a more desktop like experience.
Vast selection in phones from different hardware to software, screen sizes, etc...

so in conclusion, my opinion, Apple defeats Android in terms of premium applications and games, and the ability to jailbreak and have everything for free is just a WIN WIN.

BUT Apple doesnt do it for me in the sense that i cant transfer files without the itunes headache, have to convert video, and etc....

So as of right now, im more into android, but like i said i might go back to Apple as well, depends on what i feel like i want more..

rooting is the Android equivalent of jailbreaking. if you're going to go on some big rant like that don't look stupid doing it and know your facts. even not rooted you can just side-load whatever apps you can find on the web, it's not even hard and also the Android Market has a pretty good amount of nice, premium apps these days. i even have a friend with an iPhone that wishes he could get an app or two on my Droid 3 that he can't get.

more than likely the phone icon represents 1 phone like the iPhone 5 with teardrop design and also an 8mp camera with A5 dual core processor also there will be an upgrade on the front facing camera. all the icons have a representation like the date time and place date being the cal icon and the time being the clock icon and the location being the maps icon which is apples headquarters and the number 1 on the phone icon meaning only 1 new iPhone
