Apple fans respond to jab from Android fans in infographic battle

Apple fans respond to jab from Android fans in infographic battle
Last week, when the Apple iPhone 6 was introduced, Android users made fun of the length of time it took Apple to join the "large-screen" club. When the T-Mobile G1 launched in 2008, the first Android powered handset featured a 3.2 inch screen, trailing the 3.5 inches on the Apple iPhone. But when the Motorola DROID was released, it actually surpassed Apple's pride and joy by .2 inches. From that point on, it was Apple looking ahead at Android's ever-increasing glass.

In an infographic, Android fans also made fun of the specs and features on the Apple iPhone 6, comparing the handset to the Nexus 4. And like those old Lincoln vs. Kennedy facts (Lincoln died in the Ford Theater, Kennedy died in a Ford; both had successors named Johnson, etc.), the iPhone 6 carries a 4.7 inch screen with resolution of 750 x 1334 while the Nexus 4 has a 4.7 inch screen with resolution of 768 x 1280. The point of the comparison was to give Apple fans a big welcome...to 2012 when the Nexus 4 was launched. Among the features on the Nexus 4 that are just now making it to the iPhone is NFC connectivity.

Apple fans decided to strike back by comparing features coming on the Android L update, to the various versions of iOS when they first appeared for iPhone users. The greeting on this response reads, "Dear Android L users: Welcome to 2008!" But Apple fans made sure that the last cut was the deepest of all. Referencing the "F word" (fragmentation), the last line of the infographic reads "Enjoy Android L (if it ever comes to your phone)". Ouch.

Sounds like both sides got their licks in, so let's call it a draw. We'd all be better off remember the late Rodney King who pleaded, "Can we all just get along?" You can check out both infographics by clicking on the slideshow below.

It's between fragmentation or updates to phones that cannot handle it. While most manufactures are less concerned about pushing updates, Apple hands them out, wether your phone can handle it or not.

and a 64 bit cpu? dear applefanboys u got to know that u can only use 64 bit with at least 4 gb ram so a big lol here

Perpetuating falsehoods? Addressing more than 3.3 GB of RAM is a feature, but it hardly defines 64-bit architecture. Try again.

He is right in the way that Performance and Optimization is 'Wasted' on a 64 bit with just 1Gb RAM! So all the crap about how optimized iOS is for iPhone is pure BS!

Dude Alan F. How can you post that... Welcome to 2008... REALLY?!? How desperate are Apple fans that they are going to title it like that when there is only one thing from 08? lol All of the stuff they mention are insignificant compared to the physical phone? Look at the Android one... REALLY?!? lol Also the information is wrong. How can they claim they have 64bit support when their new iPhone 6 & 6 Plus only has 1GB or RAM. Alan F. C'mon don't lose your credibility. You should know better than this... Was this what you were waiting for? Or did you make this info-graph? Also look at the class of these Apple fans... "So STFU"? REALLY guys... lol Very emotional right? Like they are reaching really, really hard!!! lol Stay Classy San Diego. lol

1. Adaptive brightness = Auto Brightness on Android 2. Phone Rotation Lock = most Android phones have this in a quick launch pull down bar (Samsung, LG, Sony all have had it for many years) 3. Lockscreen notifications = we have had this with lockscreen widgets for ages 4. Do not Disturb = Its called "Quiet Mode" and has been available on many phones including LG for many years 5. 64Bit OS doesn't work with 1Gb Ram.. LOL 6. Wireless screen mirroring - yes Android was late but isn't locked into Apple devices 7. Bluetooth low energy came with the Bluetooth 4.0 standard - thus it was up to manufacturers to incorporate not Android related - LOL!!! 8. Camera Lockscreen - grasping at straws on this one 9. Pinch to Zoom - Android had tap to zoom well before that. The fact of the matter is every iFan is paying a premium for outdated hardware. At least Android offers the latest and greatest and at a reasonable non ibuttrape price.. lol

LOL. Yeah. Besides, it said welcome to 2008, but the years are varied. The creator of that graphic is so dumb, I even feel pity for him/her.

The lock screen shortcut for the camera was on the Evo 3d. That was on gingerbread. And my HTC hero had the rotation lock when it was on 1.6.

you clearly have no idea what is a 64 bit chip

U should do some research, before make a fool of u self. 64 bit doesnt need 4GB RAM to use. -.-

182. FluffyBled unregistered

Most people don't even know what a 64-bit processor can do ...! It just can use more RAM and support more ... but since iPhones only have 1GB of RAM ... it's useless!

183. RebelwithoutaClue unregistered

If you really knew what 64bit processor can do, you would have known that adressing memory over 4GB isn't the only option that improves speed.

Wait, what? You can use 64-bit with any amount of ram. More kernel space is available, as well as the use of 64-bit only extensions. Plus this is only valid on Windows. Any Unix based system such as iOS does not need 64-bit to run more than 4gb of ram.

Apple may update the previous 3-4 phones with their latest software, but we all know that it comes with almost no new addition and rather keep them exclusive to their newest iPhone, and their excuse is? Hardware issues! And that's where the joke is, because iPhones have little to no change when it comes to specs.

While true... even that's not innovative. It's just a regurgitation of an issue mostly brought on by OEM's.

I agree. However, it seems like when iOS is upgraded on an older iPhone, it slows the whole phone down to a crawl.

I am actually cringing. This android vs iOS war is just so cheap. OMG. But i think i got to have a popcorn. ( i love the "Enjoy Android L (if it ever comes to your phone) !")

The funny thing is that all of the things listed have been available on Android for some time through 3rd party apps. While stock Android never had those features standard, consumers were still able to get them from 3rd party developers. And 64-bit has been a part of Android for some time it just was never used or turned on. This is what happens when you have fanboys who are too blind to see things objectively get on and, with a bit of rage, decide to create infographics that spread false knowledge.

To start with i really don't think it was very mature of the person to make such info graphic , mocking someone because they prefer certain device is idiotic . Some people chase specifications while some chase experience , to each its own .But even if 64bit was present for a while there were no phones using it and there were no soc supporting it ( excluding maybe intel).

You're right, it is idiotic but it is pretty hard to understand why so many people are spending so much money on a device like this, an amount that its clearly not worth. It's more of an sociological question for me. I wanna know if I'm missing something,or do I have a point when thinking this way.

I don't who who thinks dropping over $1000 USD on a phone with 1GB of RAM is okay. I mean seriously that's robbery.

really pulkit what about tim cooks fake graphic on android os at his key note and the constant slaps to android and windows then 5 mins later taking the same stuff and renaming it and puting into apple. apple should be thanking google without google allowing youtube on apple, the apple phone would be gone thats all people use it for just like the windows did not have youtube app only internet access that was the end of windows kinda.

Correct as usual Dr.Phil, Many of those things mentioned have found their way to Android a long time ago... And A LOT of those functions find their way to devices through manufacturers UI... for example Adaptative Brightness is used in Sony phones since forever, and similar approach is found on Samsung phones and LG... Do not disturbed has been available in touchwiz for a while... same with rotation lock... Wireless screen mirroring is absurd to discuss... first you need an Apple TV or similar very expensive device... and if you make it wired... then you need to buy an overpriced adapter to HDMI... and many Android devices have had microHDMI ports and then cheap MHL ports... Sony phones have had Quick Camera Launch for years and it works faster and better than the lockscreen shortcut on iPhones... This was a pretty uninformed and misguiding post by a blind Apple fan. Pity that they are missing so much more.

125. engineer-1701d unregistered

also one main reason i got the gs3 was the screen mirror to my tv. alot of manufactures have there own things in the software that stock android does not. thats why its been so hard more me and many others to embrace the nexus line i would miss to many things
