Motorola makes fun of getting #iLost

Motorola makes fun of getting #iLost
Motorola doesn't want you to get #iLost

Motorola doesn't want you to get #iLost

Oh Motorola! You guys just love to kick a rival Apple when it's already down. Remember what you did in 2010 when the Apple iPhone 4 was just released and it quickly became apparent that the antenna design was flawed? Your full page ad for the Motorola DROID X in the New York Times shouted out in bold type, "No Jacket Required," making fun of the free rubber bumpers that Apple was handing out to iPhone 4 owners to prevent attenuation of the antenna.

Now, you are making fun of the problems that Apple iOS 6 users have been having with the new Apple mapping application. Right on your Google+ and Twitter page, you show the Motorola DROID RAZR M getting directions to 315 East 15th Street in Manhattan while the new mapping application on iOS 6 shows an address in Brooklyn on the new Apple iPhone 5. You guys are like the Raptors in Jurassic Park, always testing for weaknesses. No one looking for Manhattan wants to end up in Brooklyn! Replace Brooklyn with the Bronx and you could have Bonfire of the Vanities.

While we don't take sides here, we have to say, well played Motorola, well played.

#lockedbootloader or #losttomicrosoft

Motorola has little room to make fun of anyone.

Yes, funny from a company that is on financial life support. Their phones stink, their policies stink, and they keep dropping flops.

Their phones are among the best for reception. I would hardly call that stinking.

Flops? Their phones on Verizon are always among the best sellers.

Totally agree, their policies are what stink not their mobiles, Atrix 2 and love it but not the locked bootloader though.

This is seriously getting annoying phone arena. Don't use the apple maps. Its that simple. There are plenty of alternatives in the app store. We all know they suck, just move on and write something about the 200 plus new features lol. Its funny one of my buddies has iOS 6 on his 4S (I kept 5.1.1) and I can't even tell the difference LOL.

Every new feature from iOS6 or iOS5 is stolen from Android except for the new maps ;) just make a research

Once you can open an email link in Opera or use your iPhone as an external drive in a few years.....but I doubt that...... Deal with that iOS is and will always be an inferior product

Actually iOS is much nicer, zero lag, and quality applications. Android is a turd that can't keep up with software updates or even successfully run a simple operating system without having a quad core processor. Even then, Androids have TERRIBLE BATTERY LIFE and don't even last throughout the day. I'm a power user, and I never had an Android last an entire day. With iOS, I generally have 55% left. Not to even mention Siri DESTROYS Google NOW, and I can do everything and more when I jailbreak the iPhone. I can see system files, I can get apps for free, even the in-app-purchases (for free). Facetime also kills every video chat application in the play store, and the iPhones camera kills every new Android camera at the moment. Not to go overboard, but my GPS lock is less than a second on an iPhone, where as I can watch a full length TV episode before it locks on an Android. And to be quite honest, I get way better signal with the iPhone than any android phone.

Sorry, but your mistaken and Android phones suck. Have fun being a Guinea pig and never having anything go right on your phone. :D

Fail? All of my facts are legit. You're probably a step slower than everyone here, so its ok. But anyways, I'm not brainwashed, I just like to use stuff that works. Not stuff that everyone claims is "sooooo much better," when its not at all. Seriously you cant even bring up one of my arguments, you just say I fail and say I'm brainwashed? Lol, I'll take that from a butt hurt Android fan any day. And maybe android should make a better perating system, because an iPhone 3gs runs smoother than over half of the Android phones and gets all of the updates, have fun buying 3 phones every year to get the greatest/worst software to date. You make me laugh.

Well technically, we are all brainwashed then if we like using something according to your logic. I wouldn't go as far as to call android trash but I agree w/the performance of iOS over android. Android may offer more 007-like features but the common uses iPhone does what it does more efficiently & all while not needing the latest chipsets. I realize this pill is as hard for android fans to swallow as it is to swallow a watermelon whole...but it's been my experience.

LOL I TRADED MY NEXUS FOR THE 4S. Pretty sad you need a project butter to make your phone smooth. And the battery life still sucked. But nice try though. No Android will ever live up to my standards or the millions of people who buy iPhones everyday. Android is a half baked os that can do more, but fails to do so in almost every aspect. iOS has everything down to perfection. Meanwhile, you guys bash them and expect everyone to just get an Android??? LOL GET REAL. FailDroids.

I like you, you still defend Android, but actually agree with me to a certain aspect. Android is awesome if you want to constantly tweak your phone with custom ROMs, kernels and root applications; but, I do that when I jail break the iPhone and set it up one time, until the next iOS is out. Granted, the S3 and the Nexus have bigger displays, but the retina is really beautiful and I type just as fast with one hand on the iPhone (which has better spell correction) than an Android. Not to mention speech to text is flawless on the iPhone, whereas you say something and it doesn't register until 5-10 seconds later on an Android. Every simple task you can throw at an iPhone it can perform almost effortlessly. If Google made a MIUI phone for the US, I'd be all over it, but I don't want to constantly mess with custom ROMs anymore.

I had a 4s, and infact just bought another one to replace my ipod touch that had it's bluetooth FAIL. My first 4s wouldn't last 12 hours JUST SITTING THERE. My RAZR gets me 2 full days (48 hours) and I don't even have a MAXX!. It runs ICS PERFECTLY. I think I've only had 5 force closes and that was before I got ICS. Now it's perfect!

Yeah the difference is that I can sync my Facebook, my emails and iCloud and still get over 6 hours of display time. I know for a fact from multiple phones that you cant do that on an android... C'mon. Stop lying lol.

After following this site for months, I've only now bothered to make an account after reading your comment.

I love Sony, and think that Sony has the potential to make the MOST fun out of Apple. And should. Why? Because now people are going for the SG3, lumia 920 and Razr M - and Sony is not on that list. Sadly.

Then you need to change your whole identity. But I feel your posts are fine I agree with them. Apart from once when I thumbed you down :)
Are the iFans going after you? Then you don't need to worry as they won't find you with their maps anyway :)

Meh, they are too busy counting their money. What Apple needs is to do something innovative, not rushing out half backed applications just to try and stay competitive because everyone else has passed them up in features and options.

i dont think the maps app is bad… i bet almost everyone who cites it has not used it because at least in my area it shows everything perfectly… it is by far better than the old google maps were-- whether that be apple or googles fault i do not know

the data seems to be perfect as far as location, while the traffic data is more of an issue for me...

It might be ok in your area, but in others it's very bad. Some cities are located 20 miles away from where they actually are, or just don't exist. Some areas looks like a mixed color patched quilt because of different resolution images and different colors, just look at the 10 fails of Apple Maps article on here.

Ppl said the same thing about the iPhone 4 antenna. That Apple gave away free runner bumpers for ...and adjusted the antenna for the iPhone 4 for Verizon, the iPhone 4S and the other new iPhones going forward.

I agree with this.

Apple didnt adjust the design of the iPhone 4 antenna for nothing. Or give away fre bumpers just for the fun. If enough ppl complain and they get enough bad press, they will fix it.

Some some ppl might can thank Motorola if a fast fix comes soon.
