Because I'm usually right, and I'm usually consistent. I'm also willing to admit I'm wrong if I am proven to be wrong.

There's also the matter of my opinions and statements being backed up by sources and proof, which I regularly post. And even when I make predictions, such as the one that high subsidies for the iPhone tend to hurt profits for carriers, I'm vindicated by News posts about carriers like Unicom and US Cellular deciding not to sell the iPhone anymore, or even for the first time. Also, when I made the prediction that the reason Samsung refused to pay royalties to Apple was because Apple's asking rate was probably extortionist in nature, I was vindicated by the revelation that Apple indeed was asking for twice what Microsoft gets from Samsung, and at the same time claimed that any Samsung developed tech in their phones was worth only half a cent per unit.

I'm also usually pretty civil to anyone who isn't clearly here to be antagonistic. You can ask Davecann2 about that one. I've even tried to be nice to people like Taco, and in fact defended people like him if they said something correct or civil.

So.... Yeah. Why indeed.

None of this should be news to you. You clearly read my comments often enough to thumb them down anywhere you appear.

plenty of manufacturers put out phones that arent the latest tech & no one talks about it but ppl only talk about the iPhone bc it is a threat to all other smart phones out there, bottom line. android's idea of high tech isnt everyones idea of high tech. sure the bitches love iPhones but thats only one group. there's still the business world - major companies who prefer iOS performance over Android for their employees. i got an SIII which has all this stuff under its hood...but there is literally no diff in my experience with this compared to the 4S i came from. none at all. android users get in to all these irrelevant functions like overclocking & speedtests. Apple sells so well bc of ppl like me who just use the functions of the phone & are not in all that dumb shit that ppl do with their phones for bragging rights.

It sells due to being a designer phone. Like Prada. LV.
D&G
Armani
And people think they look cool in European countries, they think there rich in poor, or Asian countries!!!!!!!!!!

Which is why Mxy is running true to form for taco - comments are full of errors and hypocrisy.

Right. Ask some G Nex owners that were given a RAZR or Maxx as replacements if they arent good phones...

The ads do sell em, but what about when the ads stop? The RAZR and Maxx were still popular on Verizon right before the GS3 launched.

I dont remember the GS3 getting a hardware design change...dude...it looks nothing like an iPhone.

Yeah, but there's a different style of hypocrisy and wrongness there.

Besides, when I was banhammered for a week (for calling Taco a dumbass) I created an alternate account. I was banned there within three posts. If Mxy was an alternate account from Taco he'd likely not still be posting.

Yes they are in the wrong. This wouldn't even be happening if Samsung hadn't copied them in the first place. This is why Apple has went against Samsung more than any other oem.

Oh give it a rest. What matters is what users thought not a bunch of titles that they pretty much give to any device.

And users thought it was great. I still run into original Droid users who don't want to give it up.

How many people can say that about the original iPhone? Hell, how many can say that about the 3GS, even?

It was worth it, though. It's always worth it. :P

Wrong. This wouldn't be happening if Apple didn't BELIEVE Samsung had infringed upon its patents. The trial is there to determine if such is the case.

The GS3 looks drastically different to past GS models.

Yes, they were popular. But you drop the price of any high end phone and it will of course remain popular.

Thank you.

Some ppl just got rid of their Droid 1's last year, even this year. And like he said, since what matters is what users thought....that says alot.

Good news. I didn't even know that Apple had not retained their emails, either. I was actually on Apple's side on that one, but once again Apple believes in, "Do as we say, not as we do."
