The truly original os?! Really?! Maybe in your dreams!!! Symbian, windows, blackberry, are they not os?! Only sheeps will welcome your ios, im sure many new features of it will derive or copy from either windows, blackberry, symbian and android. Then they will say they innovate it, and worst is claiming they created it. Its really ridiculous!!!

This retard has nothing better to do than trolling against Android whenever he can. What's funny is that he's not even a ifan, he's from the Nokia camp. But he never miss an opportunity to troll against Android. So much hatred will lead him to a nervous breakdown someday.

One feature I would really like is to ability to customize my sound notifications. For example....

Because I have several email accounts added to my iPhone I would love a different notification sound to distinguish between each. One feature I really loved about Blackberry.

I want to be able to have different signatures for each email account.

I also want Siri to have the ability to toggle settings like bluetooth and wifi.

3rd party app support by Siri would be really cool.

Lol. that's one of the basic functions of S-voice.. (opening wifi, bluetooth, gps, 3rd part app support)

68. gp284 (Posts: 120; Member since: 25 Feb 2012)


That may be true, but s-voice kinda (not completely) was copied from SIRI, so they were able to make it better because they saw what it was missing so Siri of course would be worse than s-voice, it never had a chance because SV came later, but more than likely siri will have those functions in iOS 6.

IOS 6 should just come with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi widgets on the home screen. Touching a button would be so much easier than asking siri to do it.

''the worlds most advanced mobile operating system''
well its the worlds funniest mobile operating system but advanced
lets see if it will bring the ability to not purchase music without jailbreaking it
+ free navigation + support for being cheap on the pocket
+ less pricy

what I ment was to PIRATE music like everybody else
oops sorry I said that the iPhone fans' mind can't even handle the thought of being a Pirate

Or apparently iPhone fans can actually afford to purchase their music. Or they recognize that pirating music is illegal and carries a fine of $100,000's when caught.

They also have the intelligence to generally capitalize the first letter of a sentence (sorry Taco but you missed on that one), spell "meant" correctly, and use periods to end a sentence. Also, "fans" does not need an apostrophe in the instance you used it and pirate is not typically a proper noun so it doesn't need capitalized in either place of your post. Quotes would have been better than all caps.

I own a Galaxy note. Free isn't always the way to go. I have plenty of great apps, I've paid for. I tend to hear that a lot - free this, free that. But to be honest, free always comes with a price. You know what they say, you get what you pay for. Just wanted to input what often didn't make sense to me.

that means that for every song on my phone I would pay 1€

An android user like myself is not able to update to the latest version of andriod without voiding the warranty. I have a Moto Triumph that came with stock Froyo and it looks like the android OS is no where as sophisticated as iOS.

Yes, because updating is all that matters. I can bet if they released ICS for you Triumph but at the cost of it not being able to run smoothly, use functions and widgets, you'd still want it just because it is considered the latest.

People like you need to join the iOS herd right now, you're not using an OS for it's functions, you're using it to boost your tiny esteem by believing you can feel good by using the "latest technology", regardless if it's actually good for you or not.

i love how everyone hates on apple, please tell me ONE single android devic that has sold better than any model iPhone. I'd love to get a response, please, I'm waiting...nvm it's ok there hasnt been one. Not a single android phone by itself has sold any better than any model of iPhone. Personally in my opinion you guys truthfully cant say anything yet about iOS6 because nothing has been announced for it yet. Wait and see what it holds and does, then complain all you want. It's truly ironic how android fans hate on apple fans for liking Apple as a company but the Apple fans rarely say a word about how Android sucks. Chill out, relax, everyone is different in their own way right? You android fan boys are no better than that High School Bully that used to pull down your pants and show your small P***s to the entire hallway.

I'd disagree and say that a lot of iPeople talk about how Android sucks and talk about how much better iPhones are. That is one of the many reasons Apple annoys me so much. It use to bother me a lot but now I just think it is funny. We hate because the whole marketing scheme of Apple is ridiculous although extremely effective. "The worlds most advance mobile operating system in the world" is a perfect example. They literally just burn these ideas into the general masses brains that the iPhone is "the" best phone, period. They are great phones no doubt, but constantly self proclaim themselves as the best over and over.... it gets really annoying after a while. Android just has a way more subtle and respectable approach.

Because we are comparing OS VS OS, hardware is just the ship that delivers. That is why Apple can still get away with saying that the Macbook is the top selling laptop even thou OSX only compromises of like what? 20% of the overall PC percentage while Windows is still the majority. Because Windows come in different manufacturer cases.

"It's truly ironic how android fans hate on apple fans for liking Apple as a company but the Apple fans rarely say a word about how Android sucks." That's because they can't. Android has no flaws whatsoever compared to iOS (Whatever iOS can do, Android can do,if not better) other than in app development. The only few retards here like taco and gallito who still trying to insult Android can only use outdated excuses like "It lags","It's buggy".
