Let me correct you since you're wrong. The only writer to even point me out is Michael. That's only because I pointed out how wrong he was in his previous article along with disagreeing with him on Google's policy on user data.

I haven't said anything Apple related in this article.

Actually, Michael pointed out that you repeatedly bitch about Motorola's little update issue which happened about a year ago and hasn't been repeated since. He, and almost literally everyone else who posts regularly on this site, including me, have pointed out that it's time to let it go and stop acting like it's a continual problem with Motorola.

That's funny. You tell me to let it go and yet many of you still bitch about the overexaggerated antennagate that happened nearly 3 years ago.

That's exactly why I criticized Michael and some of his articles because of that very reason. That goes along with any other overblown iPhone problems that are brought up on PA.

I think everyone here agrees that what you see isn't necessarily connected in any way to reality.

We don't still bitch about Antennagate, really. I don't anyway. I brought it up as an example of why it's ludicrous to criticize a company for a problem in the past that it hasn't since repeated.

Another example is like saying all Fords explode because the Pinto did.

But because you can't fathom reality, you think that all of us are actually still bitching about it.

(though Apple loses points for never fixing the actual antenna issue on the AT&T 4 even to this day. Yes, I've checked.)

Hah I still see people cling to it even to this day. There never was any problem which btw it was fixed. You had to have been squeezing the phone with a vice like grip for it to drop its signal.

That was an overblown issue. Lets not act like some android manufacturers don't ignore problems. Motorola included.

You think it's ludicrous yet you aren't the ones who's affected and you forget the contractual side of the Motorola phones in question.

Funny how you keep giving yourself such helpful advice. Why don't you ever listen to it?

Wait, you claim at the same time that there was never any problem, and that it was fixed.

Which was it, Mxy?

Was there a problem?

Or was it fixed?

Your statement that you had to squeeze the phone applies to other manufacturers, not to Apple. All I've ever had to do was lay my pinky on that antenna break.

If it wasn't a major design flaw, why did the guy responsible get fired?

And lest you forget, Mxy dear, the problem itself was never actually the problem. The REAL problem was Apple's hissy fit reaction to the problem, which ranged from denial of the problem to lying about what caused it.

IN STARK CONTRAST, WHEN A SINGLE SHIPMENT of Motorola's Droid X had faulty screens that went dead, Motorola and Verizon apologized for it and offered a free replacement to anyone who suffered the issue.

Now, as for the update issue, I most definitely WAS affected. I own an Atrix 4G, you jackass. And I am still under contract, and awaiting the end of that contract before I can move on to a new phone on an employee plan.

And in the meantime I've had to give up reliable connectivity and stability in order to have a custom ROM on my phone that's newer than 2.3 so I can showcase what phones these days are capable of at my job.

So don't tell me what doesn't affect me. You have no idea.

I just choose to look at an overall track record instead of one incident.

There was never any problem? So why did it need to be fixed? Also, you didn't need to be squeezing it that hard, I had an iPhone 4 and whenever I just casually picked it up and held it for about 5 seconds, signal would almost disappear.

It's not the problem itself that many people had a problem with, it was Apple's reaction to it. Not only did they deny the issue, but they blamed it on the consumers, which is absolutely the worst thing a company as big as Apple could do.

If they would've just taken the blame in the first place and apologized for the issue, the whole "antennagate" problem would have quickly been dismissed by the public instead of being used as a constant reminder of Apple's gaudy and ignorant attitude.

Yes, Motorola made a mistake with all their Tegra 2 devices, but they have already apologized for devices like the Photon and Atrix and are currently doing much better than most other Android manufacturers with their updates.

The past is the past, issues like Tegra 2 updates and antennagate are behind us. Get over it.

It's true the iPhone is kind of far back in the features department. I think all the phones are good for different people.

The conclusion this draws is, the internet diehards (people that use stuff like Twitter, G+, Tumblr, etc.) dont like the Iphone as much as the internet casuals (those who rarely stray from the likes of Facebook)

Android browser is just as fast, and in some cases faster. They're both really good.

Has anyone seen someone saying ' iPhone 5/Lumia/BB is total crap. Should have gone with ****** phone' a lot? For the GS4, there are countless complaints like so. How can GS4 be the least criticized?
