Meh. Someone had to take a shot at Android. I'll take a shot at Apple by means that all iPhone users are bricks. ;)

yeah its a minor problem most likely to be related with the cable used or with the posses being done in a unappropriated way, but lucky for us bricked =/= broken and the phone can be recovered...

virtually all phones have a chance on getting bricked, even on officials updates... next time you want to go bragging about how much android sucks make sure is in something your phone does not suck at too... oh yeah i forgot your leader says your phone is perfect any errors is the users fault, he makes perfect equipment, not perfect end users...

I have not read anything where an iphone bricks because of low battery or a cable. The android problem is because there is an update every month, 2.1, 2.2, 2.3 etc. Then each manufacturer must redo all their different phones.

the 1st and the second are not completely related, on the second I'm showing its not an android isolated problem, its on every phone you buy regardless. now of you read carefully on the fist link i posted you will see they asked the guy if he did something wrong and if thats not the OS's fault, why they ask this? because is the normal behavior if you skipped a step or used something bad you will found a problem... now even if its not the users fault the phone can fail for "unknown reasons"

and android phones has too many updates?
have you checked apples updates?

here they are:
