Normally I would not want anyone to hit their kids. But if things are going like this, little bit of good old beating is required to show them it's important to respect the elders. It wouldn't have come to this level had the kid had some basic level of understanding what's more important in life.

This is why you do not give a 12 year old an iPhone, Apple products are addictive.

Iphones are corrupting users. Like apple, users are rotten to the core

Well, these sort of things only happen to people having or wanting Apple products. They will literally sell their kidneys to get an ipad or iphone. These are facts by the way. You don't here these crazy s**t from motorolla, htc , samsung, lg and etc.

I'm with you, bro... Every Apple/iPhone user is brainwashed to kill their loved ones so Apple can make more money from inheritance from their deaths settlements money that they will buy more Apple products. I'm gonna sell.... No, I will throw away all my devices and my family's and friends iDevices - I will steal those too and throw them away - and that will show them. Android users are decent, adults only and not once an android user was ever tied to any crime at all. Apple sucks and so are their users. (Ok, where are those green thumbs?)

"Android users are decent, adults only and not once an android user was ever tied to any crime at all." Thanks for the vote of confidence for Android. Now, let me share with you the science of why Android user are more mature smartphone user. Its because you actually need a brain to think before you can operate an Android device proficiently.

Good one... Some say you need Brain, others say Patience... http://money.cnn.com/2015/01/22/technology/mobile/iphone-smart-study/ http://www.cnet.com/news/iphone-owners-smarter-than-android-fans-says-online-test/ http://blog.gsmarena.com/iphone-owners-more-intelligent-than-android-users/ I could keep going and going... Now I met smart people using android and dumb people using iOS... so this argument you're making is pointless... but I linked a few studies just to bring you down to normal level... where we're all at...

AlikMalix, you are the one that get defensive. I say you need brain to think to use an Android device period. Did i say any other thing that would suggest that its only true for Android device. You don't even have personal experience with any Android 2014/2015 devices and yet you are quick to put them down. i just state a point and immediate you have a need to defend and defeat it. LOL! In case you miss my point, i am just trying to say there are many perceptive to every single issue, please don't discount them unless you have experienced them yourselves with an open mind.

Joey, I don't disagree with u at all my reply was strictly sarcastic and toward post #7. Wasn't meant to go against android. I'm actually extremely excited for Samsung S6/S6e - which I will be purchasing this fall. I think OLED screens have a huge advantage to apples based on my experience with Note4's s-pen which really got my serious attention to Samsung. I have pens for iPad/iPhone but they're not as accurate as the S-pen on note4. It just irritates me the sentiment that just because I use ios I'm "rotten to the core" and "bought Apple due to a LOGO" crap. When the things that keep me away from Samsung are core features that ios brings to the table (which android phones are adopting as fast as Apple devices adopting android's). Bottom line I'm a fan of Apple/ios - that does not mean I'm a hater of Android or their users. But to make it clear - I'm impressed by some flagship android phones today, the only few things that may still annoye are bloatware, and various clutter - other than that most of my problems with android have been addressed in the past couple of years.

You are right. Every thing has both good and bad points. We need to be mindful and make the right decision for ourselves. At this stage, you should know that all PA post are bias in one way or another. Just don't let it get to you. That's being said, i am also thankful for some of the information shared by some of the people here. Those that let me learn new ideas and information.

First of all. As to why this child has a cell phone to begin with. I have no idea. And an IPhone at that! She's 12! Second of all I would give that girl the beating of her life, before I reported her to the police.

I'm not totaly agree, phone are supposed to connecting people not the otherwise. These kids are about the same age with my younger cousin. She really want iProduct so badly but her parents gave her mid-range blackberry, she was upset and not thankful about it. She said all my friends have it (it's like owning an iProduct can define someone social status), I think apple really brainwashed people mind.
