His mom? So not your wife? LOL So you're also irresponsible. But no, not just because of a phone, because you choose to wait in line for one when you could be spending time with your son or saving that money for his college education. Did you take time off work? I thought so.

Haha glad to see I made this ridiculous list... I'm a former android user... (Getting a nexus 7 soon) and I'm very impressed with the note 2 But android fans in here are so out of control man... Calm down with the hate... I have an iPhone and iPad because I too use to bash apple but never once used its products... Now that I have, I have far more respect for its functionality... I will be getting the iPhone 5 in white

That's true bro we have fanatics on both side. I choose apple cuz it's a good os that I'm deeply vested in but I'm an android fan and owner also. Htc one x international is at home charging. Dude some guy was buying IPhones like crazy last nite. Sold him my 64 gig 4S for 375$ I was like he'll yeah!!! I think he sells them on eBay

"Choice". Well said. Andriod users are annoying. Here is something. Don't read and comment on Apple articles everyday if you hate Apple.

Dude iOS is a good platform. Android has its advantages and so does iOS. They both also have their shortcomings. I've got a lot vested n iOS though so it's my go to os since my first iPod in 02. But u can't go wrong either way in my book. I do have a Htc one x too btw

Another good reason I go with iPhones is resale value. My 4S is a year old and still commands almost 400. I sold it last nite for 375 and paid 432 last year after tax. That's not bad bro

Omg, morons :) There is probably no way they admit they were waiting and waisting their time for an average but expensive phone .

22. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Average that will outlast any Android phone. That is a fact because I've seen reports of people stuck with an Android phone for almost two years that did not last past a year. Look at the users who are stuck with the Droid X2 and the many problems it has.

There are 2 articles in 2 hrs related to ""iPhone 5 sale" today. Speed is disappointing. On this release date there should have been an article on iPhone nsales every 15 minutes or so ...

Try this. Only read android articles that you are interested in. Skip everything Apple if you hate Apple that much. Android lover's remind me of those crazy Muslims reacting to a movie.

Could you show me PA articles where the majority of the comments are from "iSheeps" hating a certain Android device. From what I've seen personally, 70% of the commenters whether on an Android or Apple article are fans of Android. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

mate you just have to look for all the comments from gallitking (or summit like that) serious9010, Mxyzptlk and taco...was another one but anyway they are just as bad... bored with comments slagging off all android users and not even acknowledging the apple fanatics who are just as bad if not worse (look at some of there immature past a joke comments)

So...three or four people versus the whole armada of Android fans. Hmm...the top/thumbed up comments of most if not every article in PA are from Android fan users. I'm not hating...really I am not. What I am extremely annoyed about is when people like you enforce the idea that a whole flock of iSheeps constantly flood the comments with insipid remarks when in reality, the Android fans are the ones flooding the comments with such hate towards Apple. Thar's what I cannot, absolutely cannot condone.

I dunno. Looks kinda fun. Wish I liked Apple products. I've tried. I just don't. Oh well.
