Motorola makes fun of getting #iLost

0. phoneArena 22 Sep 2012, 12:52 posted on

Back in 2010 after the release of the Apple iPhone 4 revealed a flawed antenna design and introduced Abtennagate and the Left-handed death grip to the cellular world, Motorola was quick to poke fun at Apple; the manufacturer is once again quick to respond to the problems with Apple's new mapping application...

You changing your profile pictures more often than I am changing my socks :)
Are you running away from someone?
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 :)

Like Sony too...they have class. But sadly, i have to say that they should give customers more juice in their battery to enjoy longer phone play...otherwise, it's all good and sexy.
About Motorola here... Teaching Apple how to MotoFIND...they shouldn't hide. They should face Apple like Nokia and Samsung... But welcome to the iDissin' club Moto :)

I even suspect some complicity between them. No suing, no bad words...

Put Apple down, Moto; so then they will be more motivated to fix it. This is what Apple needs, a knock down to be able to try stepping up.

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.

"It might be ok in your area..."

For him everything is ok not because of his area but because of his passion for Apple. ;)

Yes, it is only my assumption and opinion which through long time was based on current person's pro Apple comments.

oh please… i just used a one x for about 3 months…

I like apple products, but i am not a "blind apple user"

and I agree maps are not perfect, but they are better than what we had before… apple really needs to get in gear and fix the issues

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.

lolol since Samsung started it, now every competitor is after iPhone 5. That's good, people need to realize that there're better options than the iPhone, for example SG3 or Nokia Lumia 920.

Everyone's taking jabs at iPhone 5. Wonder if Apple will be offended and press charges regarding product defamation.

Defamation requires lie(s) to be told to be actionable. Where is the lie in what Moto is advertising?

The truth will set you free....

iPhone 5. No daily rebooting required. Can't say the same for any Android Motorola I've had, and the iPhone 5 camera beats any Moto hands down.
