Steve Wozniak says Apple should do Android, is not impressed by Samsung

0. phoneArena 06 Feb 2014, 09:53 posted on

Apple's co-founder, Steve Wozniak, is known for speaking out his mind in a frank and direct manner. But nothing really corroborates that notion as completely as does a just-outed interview the man gave for Wired. According to Woz, Apple should do Android, and there'd by nothing to really stop it, as people go bananas for Apple products...

People who love tech. Apple would make more profits of they did this. They could sell to both sides.

You probably haven't because it isn't an app. Humor aside, you probably have no friends. I can't stand when I'm using my Note 2 and I text friends with iMessage. Even though our texts go through as text messages and not iMessages, I get envious of iMessage. I admit it.

Yes I agree with Ant34. If they do Android, it might give the impression that thay are admitting their OS is inferior so they need to use a better one (Android), which is true by the way.

And if iOS users switch to "Apple Android", they will not generate the same revenue they get from iOS devices because of Google licensing (if its Google Android), and Play Store revenue goes to Google instead of Apple. So yeah their revenue will not be the same.

hes egomaniac. look at him wearing a t shirt with his own picture on it.
hes drunk because of ever thinking about an actual apple android phone.
hes crazy because he thinks samsuc in not innovative. half of iphone components are made by samsuc. how can he say that?!
and finally hes overrated. people love him because hes friendly. i would love to see him sporting bill gates' wealth and see how he'd change.

His comments don't make sense. iOS has more premium apps collection than Android in the present state.

Still I choose Android to avoid being locked down into a single manufacturer ecosystem. I also disagree with his sweeping statement that all Samsung offered features are useless. I do use multi windows and S note a lot. Features not in use are switched off.

*Gasp* An Apple phone rubbing ANDROID!?! Aren't there laws against that? Kidding.

Now that would get me into an iPhone, especially if the 5.5 inch screen became a reality. But still, We know that won't happen soooo...

As for the Samsung part, I can somewhat agree with HS whatWoz is saying, but com'on. Apple hadn't been innovating anything since the first iPad came out. Samsung has done just as much if not more for this industry as Apple. Not hating on Apple, it just is what it is.

I'd have nothing against to Android with iPhone hardware, but for reasons that I can't explain, I wouldn't want Apple to do Android.

The Galaxy S4 is full of gimmicks hopefully the S5 will get back to its core, faster better camera, better material. iphone is slowly turning into Android anyway, with all its pull down menus, & it will have to implement Widgets/live tiles? soon otherwise the home screen will look even more outdated in a years time.

The iPhone still have its rectangular shape and suing everyone from left to right. And gain only a 2" screen size

If you think Multi Window is a gimmick then you need to go see a doctor right away.

The iPhone is nothing like Android and no where closer to it, even when compared to what Android was in 2010. They added a notification center that isn't even as good and added shortcuts that were there in SBsettings since the inception of jailbreaking. There still is 0 multitasking and 0 customizability. To say they changed anything because they changed up the skin on the phone is ridiculous.

I've only used it once on my S4 just to see how it works. It's a nice concept but the screen is just too small. It's better suited for tablets.

Multi Window was introduced on the Note 2, not the GS4. I find it hard to find practical and useful features out of the giant pile of gimmicks that was introduced with the GS4.
