Apple commercials are great the first two or three times seeing them, then they just become obnoxious. Fortunately I Tivo and fast forward through them most of the time.

You can say the same for pretty much all commercials.

I agree..apple's marketing is unparalleled.. They take something that has been out for months even sometimes years by andriod but make it appear revolutionary

What I like is how u Cleverly disguised your comment as a general comment when actually it was just another tired iOS versus android comment . Good job
11. chaoticrazor (Posts: 2347; Member since: 28 Aug 2012)
well symbian had everything you brag about before android whats your point? differance is symbian users dont care where as android users have to try shove it in other peoples face

can you elaborate? I didn't think any/many other phones had 3 microphones and the ability to share photo streams directly from photo/gallery app.

Instead, maybe they should just have kids dancing around with the product, and showing no benefits or features...

Im just waiting for the day that Apple brings widgets to iOS.... I can only imagine how that ad campaign would go smhhhhh

This android vs iOS crap has gotten so tired. Can we let it end???
13. chaoticrazor (Posts: 2347; Member since: 28 Aug 2012)
nope it wont end, my theory is that when android was the underdog you had the select few using it, now its on top everyones jumped on just like they did with the iphone, no one can deny the iphone was as much a trend as a phone
so now your gonna see role reversal, the android fans will become arrogant and think there os and google are gods gift and others like wp8, bb etc will be the underdogs
what no one seems to get is no os is far superior for every person, each has there own needs, but apparently this doesnt come into it. plus you have the android lot acting like there part of android which is just how the ifans acted

iFans should never have started it in the first place.
18. chaoticrazor (Posts: 2347; Member since: 28 Aug 2012)
started what? so basically because a few users on here trolled and were apple fanatics, everything apple must be slated at every available time and the android fans must act like those ifans
thats a childish line- you started it basically so we are gonna do the same to everyone else
24. Aeires (unregistered)
iFans on just about every tech site on the planet ragged on Android users, and to some extent W8 users now. Before the iPhone, people got along much better than they did in regards to cell phone tech.
And my statement never condoned anything, just stating the obvious.
25. chaoticrazor (Posts: 2347; Member since: 28 Aug 2012)
you cant blame fanboyism on the iphone alone
so whats your thoughts on android fans doing the same thing to iphone users and wp8 users and bb users ?
whats your thoughts on them going on every windows/bb article to say how crap it is and how amazing android is, how if you choose anything else your an idiot?
28. Aeires (unregistered)
None of it should be allowed, much blame to every tech site that didn't ban people from acting like d-bags. My point is a lot of iFans have bad karma because they acted, and still do act like aholes to people who use cell phones that aren't iPhones. And I've seen Android and W8 users act like dbags also, they're no better and I report a lot of comments that aren't necessary.
From all the groups I've read comments from, WebOS and BB users are the most laid back and non-confrontational of the bunch. IMO, iOS is the most condescending and I feel Android users just reached a point where being condemned on a regular basis pushed some over the edge to lash back. I see some W8 users reaching that point as well.
Tech sites need to be more strict but it would negatively impact page hits so it's likely to never happen. I left a lot of tech sites because it was the same thing every day, the same people saying the same condescending things, article after article. Nothing beneficial was ever brought to the conversation by these individuals and nothing was ever done to stop it and it continues mostly unchecked. It's not as bad here but I still SMH why some people are allowed to keep commenting the way they do.

There's the door bro. No one is forcing you to come here and read the comments or comment yourself. Quit whining QQ

This feud will end when a different one rises.
Canon vs Nikon.
Honda vs Toyota.
Android vs iOS.
Windows vs OSX.
Pepsi vs Coca Cola.
Google vs Yahoo!.
Xbox vs PlayStation.
It's when there isn't a feud when companies should be worrying about their product/services. It's even better when fans express their loyalty. Loyalty like that is hard to obtain for businesses. Arguments don't end, they just go somewhere else.
Battles like this will go on for a couple more years with mobile devices being mainstreamed as it is right now.
21. chaoticrazor (Posts: 2347; Member since: 28 Aug 2012)
its not layalty its when this loyalty seems to make them think they can slate people and insult them, keep saying negative things on every article to the point of obsession and just been a fanboy on a new level
laoyalty is one thing, whats happening on here is different. its sad as us the customers shouldnt be arguing or ''battling'' with each other as we arent involved in the products we just buy them. buying a product doesnt then entitle you to attack everyone else who does agree or use that product
why cant there be normal conversation without the stupid comments like ''android ftw'' or ''apple rules'' or '' its the best phone in the world'' etc everyones seen comments like this
26. p0rkguy (Posts: 684; Member since: 23 Nov 2010)
Okay, let's try it in a way you can understand.
What ever your religion is, it's wrong. Mine is right. Religion is simple and available for everyone. You just chose the wrong one.
Don't worry people aren't killing one another over religion though. /s
A customer doesn't buy something they don't believe in, whether it is better or worse. People here are only expressing their opinions at an ignorant level, but that applies to everything.
27. chaoticrazor (Posts: 2347; Member since: 28 Aug 2012)
in a way i can understand, your very condescending mate.
comparing religion to tech isnt working, as religion has been the basis of many peoples lives whether right or wrong. tech is something we buy into but we dont need to be ignorant and offensive to others.
sure i get what you mean but it doesnt really excuse how bad we ( as so called techy people) are getting. half on here look down at the general public who dont have as much an interest in tech as them calling them stupid etc
this is why i dont want to be associated with anyone on here, arrogance in bucket loads and fanboyism on a new level.
and i dont believe in my tech i buy what i like and what suits me. again i then dont shove my choices down other peoples throats like they do on here
30. p0rkguy (Posts: 684; Member since: 23 Nov 2010)
It's clearly working if you're stating it's the basis of people's lives. Cell phones? I guess you don't need them right?
31. chaoticrazor (Posts: 2347; Member since: 28 Aug 2012)
what? religion is the basis of some peoples lives i said . and theres a differance between religion and tech. religion becomes a defining factor in your life where as tech doesnt. tech is just something we use/consume.
if tech plays a religous level of importance in your life somethings wrong

Again, Apple is showing off old features as something new and great. Panorama anyone? But noise canceling mics? They have been been on cell phones for years. Photo stream? Again, been around for a while but still not as cool as Samsung's Shareshot feature.
22. E.N. (Posts: 2577; Member since: 25 Jan 2009)
previous iPhones have already had noise cancellation. This is different because I think what it does is that it decreases noise interference from your end as well. I think its called HD voice. you should probably do a little research if you're that interested.
I don't think neither Photostream or Shareshot are features to brag about, but Shareshot is pretty stupid. The fact that it requires a wifi network and only Samsung devices makes it VERY limiting. Maybe its useful if you and your Samsung friends take a lot of pictures at coffee shops and at McDonalds. With photostream you can be in different parts of the world and share w/o a wifi connection with any iOS device (I believe even Mac and PCs). I really don't see many people even using Shareshot
