In my opinion, Apple never had any 'Mojo' in the first place.

They do have Mojo in the iPad launch days. I was memorize when Steve job said; 'with the iPad, you are holding the internet in the palm of your hands!'

A week later, I holding the iPad One.

Some people don't buy smartphones for their specs and capabilities! They just want to show what the brand they have in their hands!

I love the whole "iPhone is for dumb people" line. Has it occurred to you that people continue to buy the iPhone because they like Apple's designs and they enjoy using iOS?

Well, when they are about to change iOS into a cheap watered down carbon copy of Android, then yes.(iOS7) I can't wait to hear the iPhoners rave about how awesome the new features are and how they are a break through in the cell phone world. And then I can look at them and say, "That's funny, when I told you my Droid did that 2 years ago, your response was:" "Oh, I don't need all that."

SMH....

I was pretty amused when I started seeing things like a pull-down notifications bar and camera on the lockscreen in iOS 6 - things my phone had with GB. It's pretty clear that with iOS 7, iOS is borrowing liberally from WP and Android.

My point was that the appeal of the iPhone is in overall simplicity and quality of hardware and software together. There's nothing "dumb" about wanting a phone to be simple, clean, and uncluttered.

And once again i say - this is the same iOS7 that was number 2 in the Google Play store for the past part of 5 weeks...If Android is so great what were the majority of users doing downloading this? A paid app too nonetheless..

How is Apple less cluttered? I can literally have nothing on my Android screen and and on my Windows Home Screen.

However anything downloaded on and iphone has to be on screen or an a folder some where. So please explain to me how your argument is even remotely valid?

Is this another one of those "Oh I don't need all that" comments? Because the Androids and Windows Phones for that matter simply do more?

If so when you get done here, please feel free to go by your local car dealer and buy you a Ford Focus at the same price as a Mercedes, because "who needs all that?"

A theme is not an operating system... And I'm looking at the website and on my phone and I can't see where any of those themes, paid or unpaid were the number 2 app in the Google Play Store. Nor are they under Top Grossing, Top New Paid, Top New Free, Or Trending for that matter...

your existence is satisfied by bashing iOS and Apple, you can't accept that people actually admire them.

So, i get ...you have chosen droid and give it a bad name by being a compulsive hater. Enjoy your existence

What does that even remotely have to do with me asking to be presented with actual facts? Sorry I want some one to show me the facts they are claiming to be true and not go along with them like a Zombie... And just for the record I have Windows 8 devices as well, so no I am not just a "Droid Fan"

At least my comment has something to do with the topic at hand...

And I appreciate it, I will definitely continue to enjoy my existence.

Fact: iOS is simpler and easier to learn, for the average non-techie.
Fact: iOS consumes less system resources than Android. This means the phone doesn't need as high of specs to get the same performance.
Fact: iOS devices hardware has fewer bottlenecks and are more optimized to the software than any Android device. This also results in lower specs giving good performance.
Fact: iDevices have better build quality and use higher quality components than the vast majority of Android devices.
Fact: A signifigant segment of the market are willing to pay more money for iOS' simpler, more refined, less overwhelming, easier to learn interface, and they also appreciate the better build quality that comes with it.
Fact: Apple iPhones and iPads currently sell better than devices from any other company.
Fact: Apple devices retain better resale value than devices from any other company.
Fact: You are android/WP8 fanboy with an obvious anti-Apple bias.

I'll accept them as fact, as soon as you post FACTS not just your opinion or conjecture on the matter. A link, to a reliable resource would be nice.

I can say that I'm an astronaut it doesn't make it "FACT"

You figured that you're too lazy to look facts up for yourself?
And why would I be mad? It's not my problem that you're ignorant. Doesn't affect me one bit.

You're stating your opinion continuously. And I will again challenge you to post some type of reliable source(s) to back them up. I have done my research plenty of times over, I'm asking to you prove it wrong. Why should I research something that you are vehemently claiming and defending to be true? You're the one claiming it not me...

If you think that cursing over it and cutting me down makes you look better or makes your opinions any more valid, then you're sorrily mistaken. You're obviously upset.

They're facts regardless of whether I spoon-feed you sources. I've played this game before -- if I waste my time providing you with links, you'll just dispute the source (regardless where it comes from) and continue to deny the truth. I'll say it again -- I'm not your bitch -- go do your own research and discover the facts for yourself if you don't believe me. Don't take my word for it. If I'm lying, then prove it.

You haven't provided any source links so why should I waste my time for you to just simply refuse whatever source I provide?

"Bitch" isn't even a curse. And I called you ignorant because that's what you're being. If you refuse to accept objective facts without even doing your own fact-checking, that's what you are -- ignorant.

Trying to convince an ignoramus is about as futile as arguing with a brick wall. If you want to be ignorant, go ahead -- not my problem.

.... We're just talking.

You're obviously trying to troll ("u mad bro?") and failing at it, so I think we're done here.
Go ahead and continue to be willfully ignorant -- not my problem or my job to make you see the truth.

You asked for facts, so I gave you facts.
Why do you think I might be mad?
Because you don't accept the facts?
Please -- as if I care about you and your silly opinions.

Just talking? I always call people names and cut them down during general conversation. And then I claim that cursing at them is not cursing at all. Give me a break.

You just need to realize that your opinion is not a fact nor do I need to research things that you are stating as fact. Most people that throw "facts" around will usually site them. I presented several things in previous statements that were factual and instead of rebutting them, you went on a rant and listed your opinions on several things. You didn't even respond to any of the posts that were on her or my requests for support of what you are stating. You just personally attacked me.

So yeah, I will ask you again. You mad bro?

And if my "opinions" are so meaningless to you, why are you wasting your time responding to them?!

They're not my opinions though -- they are facts.

The great thing about facts is that they're still true even if you don't believe them. As for my not rebutting your points, I didn't see you making any points -- the only things you've said to me is "no it's not true no no no no no no no no no no".
"No it's not true" is a claim too, and you won't provide citations either, so that makes you a hypocrite, in addition to being an ignoramus.

Learn to look things up for yourself. Do your own fact-checking. Don't expect people to always spoon-feed you everything.

And stop whining about being called an ignoramus. If you don't like it, then stop being ignorant.

I can see that this conversation isn't going anywhere, so unless you have something intelligent to say in your next reply, I don't think I will respond.

Fact: Anyone who posts opinion on a message board as "Fact" is trolling.

But, to be a little less troll-y, here are two non-Facts in your list of Facts.

Fact: iOS is simpler and easier to learn, for the average non-techie.
Simpler, easier, and "average" are either inherently subjective or undefined. Even if you could define and accurately gauge whether someone is a non-techie, good luck surveying them with a common objective definition of simpler.

Fact: iDevices have better build quality and use higher quality components than the vast majority of Android devices.
"Better build quality" is almost completely subjective. Personally, I find the aluminum of iPhones to be inferior in build quality. My work iPhone 5 looks like crap with scratches and dings everywhere. It also suffers from bad battery life and the touch screen doesn't register motions along the right hand side. My Android phone is far superior as far as I'm concerned.

Edit: nevermind, I saw your second reply.
I'll admit that those 2 were more subjective..
