No i like how you all THINK you know things, but you have NO basis for your statements. I have NO problem with people like apple products because they find their stripped down, shortcut only, simple, and feature lacking OS to be easy enough for them to use. That is fine... I have a problem with people that defend the poor customer service, defend the overly high prices for what you get for the money, and the people that argue that the iPhone is the best thing since sliced bread that offers the MOST amzing features and that NOTHING comes close...because for instance the Moto Atrix crushes the iPhone is every test we have put it against here in the store. The lack of COMMON SENSE and BLIND following is what I have a problems with.

Your post makes no sense. You say have no problem with people that buy Apple while in the same breath bashing Apple. Moto Atrix is not even a relevant phone. Do you have people line up around the corner for the Atrix? Lol

Oh, and you think you're the one who knows everything? Excuse me, but you are nothing more than a despicable hater :) A hypocrite too. You said you have no problems with people who prefer Apple products, yet you are in every Apple related article posting unreasonable negative comments and arguing with anyone who likes Apple devices. Other people's choices are not your problem dumbass :) You are such a dumb biatch :)

Your reading comprehension is that of a 2nd grader, hence there is no point in debating with someone as intellectually challenged as yourself. Your level of understanding is perfectly in-line for a Fanboy. Pathetic, until you can UNDERSTAND comments you read, please stop responding.

And your IQ is below zero. Add to that your hateful nature. Geez, you're really in bad shape mister. Oh I will keep on responding. And there's nothing you can do about it :) Well maybe you can stay away from Apple articles. You hate Apple anyway, right? So that wouldn't be too hard :) Oh I forgot, you're a passionate hater, so you can't :) O I guess I'll see you around :)

I have Droid Incredible. I use it a lot, all the time. I don't have force closes. It's not rooted. I go to sleep with music playing on my phone. It's not connected to the outlet, and it doesn't die. I've never seen it freeze. I don't have to pay 5 bucks for some third party less than perfect browser to be able to browse internet. i THINK i FINALLY FIGURED OUT WHY IPHONE BATTERY LASTS SO LONG. BECAUSE YOU JUST DON'T USE YOUR PHONE AS MUCH AS WE USE ANDROIDS. Because your iPhone is bland and uninteresting and it only looks good on the outside. So, keep it laying around as a paperweight and enjoy that cool black shiny glass on it. It looks best off and makes battery last too.

Are you responding to my post? If so I don't think you read it. I own and Incredible, not an iPhone. My incredible has kept me relatively happy minus the force closes, reboots and god awful battery. Of the iPhones I have played with I have noticed substantially better battery life. For example: if I play decide to, lets say play angry birds, I will take my phone off the charger, start playing, and unless my screen is dimmed to 0% where I can barely see it, the battery will only have around a 50% charge within an hour (at best). On an iPhone, however I do the EXACT SAME THING on a better looking display that is fully brightened and the battery may only go down 15-20 percent.

Point me to a Motorola Xoom Wifi for the same price or less than the IPad and then I'm all over it.

Not everybody can afford premium products. That's why they are premium. Apple is for non persnickety.

Side note: Phone Arena makes me laugh. Not only for the terrible articles they write (not this one), but because of how upset people get over one product or another and the extent to which they argue. Name calling, tag teaming, and even bullying takes me back to the 3rd playground.

NO ONE IS A ANDROID FANBOY.... That is the MAIN point youre missing here. I never once sit here and say ANDROID IS KING, ITS PERFECT! I just state the millions of flaws with the iPhone and you wack ass fanboys that kiss a shit companies ass for their shit product and shit service. The only FANBOYS are you here that cant admit the issues with your beloved phone and company. I openly bash low end android products and anythign else that deserves it... Im not a FANBOY, Im just a REALIST, that points out the truth about things.

Stated millions of flaws with the iphone? And this article is not even about the iphone. You're trolling has confused you Mr Hater :) You are one messed up tool. Other people's choices, or even loyalty, is none of your business. It is our money. We earned it. And we will use it to buy whatever device we want. You would only have a say to our decisions if you give us financial support, lol. So why is it that our choices affect you so much? It's because of the fact that our choices is doing better than yours :) And that irks you to the point that you dedicated your pathetic life in hating Apple. You claim to be a realist. Well be one. Coz reality is, the ipad 2 will even be more successful than the first one, and realistically speaking, there's nothing that you can do about it :)

I'm happy with my iPhone and have no issues with it. Therefore I dont find the need to bash other phones. The reason you do is because you're frustrated that Apple does better than your phone of choice. So you have dedicated your pathetic existence to hating a tech company lol. You could at least hate something that matters lol.

LMAO @ the iPhone doing better than my Epic, WP7, or Moto Atrix. I dont look at phones like a popularity contest, hence why you people look so pathetic. You keep arguing that someone care about "our phone does better"? WTF, are you talking about, I dont care about numbers, I know the numbers are there, just like I know the level of intellegence of the average iphone user is about ZERO. That isnt the issue here, the issue is the FANBOYS not the product, you can call me a FANBOY all you want but I use MULTIPLE OS's, so your arguement makes no sense. Again, saying "our phoen is better than yours" has NOTHING to do with the issues I state about Apple, you all choose to ignore the REAL issues, because all you can do is make immature statements that deflect from the topics at hand. Again, this makes it pointless to argue with Apple fanboys because their level of comprehension and intellegence are WELL BELOW the levels of being able to handle a debate on the FACTS and real issues.

Those phones are doing better in what? Sitting in a warehouse? If they're so great why is no one buying them? Do you realize that iPhones and iPads are becoming very popular in the corporate world. Doctors are using iPads to help with treating patients. I'm sure theyre below average intelligence as you claim. What an idiot.

Who cares however you look at phones. Why does it always have to be about you? Lol. You don't care about numbers? Well you should, coz that's how most things are determined. If iphone users IQ is about zero, then yours will surely be way below zero :) The issue here are haters like you. The guy never said the his iphone is better than anyone else's, so you're hate is causing you to hallucinate. All phones have their shortcomings. And yes, even the iphone. But some shortcomings are tolerable to other users, some are not. So choose the device whose shortcomings ate tolerable for you. Don't impose yourself on other people you do not know. That's dumb :) Oh well, you are dumb, so.

I think this. -Android Is Currently the Number One selling OS -iPhone is the Number One selling Phone They both have their good and bads As we humans continue to work on our platforms Now One sole reason why the Ipad 2 shouldn't be on the main list its because it may not be a full product, just something In the middle... will that make the iPad2 bad or a bad decision if you end up buying it? you judge that depending on your desire but again the tab market is young and unlike the phone market this time companies seem to be more ready. shouldn't you buy that tablet? I say go ahead, but i highly recommend you play with it a little and see if you are really gonna find some use to it (I Know is your effing money but i hate to see people buy a gadget because its cool and have it tossed away few weeks latter gathering dust... THATS A SIN *****), also check the competition. I the en the winner of a good choice is the user. The Xoon can be an option too since it seems the device may not be considered obsolete that fast and its got Google to back it up, as it its its "Nexus Tablet"(I think) so far... and with, but also could have some annoying things, like no LTE from the start (yeah they where drunk that day) and No support for SD card(I correct Drunk and High), but it got here for the same reason the iPad2 got out... Tablet market is not defined yet WEB OS?????? no coments here and why no playbook there? it can also be a good option for a more pocket sized tab but ladies this is not the year of the tablet... its 2012 go spend money and find cool uses for them but the real test drive starts on 2012(please kill the notebook )

Huh? Last time I checked, the number selling OS is still Symbian. See, your true android colors came out :) Android took over symbian in the smartphone class, but symbian is still by far #1. But yes, the #1 selling SMARTPHONE would be the iphone IN ITS PRICE CATEGORY. The #1 overall is stil Nokia (for now). What? The ipad2 is not a full product? Are you making your own definitions now of what a tablet should be? Lol. The ipad is too big not to be included in the main list. Yeah, let's not include the ipad in the main list, but let's just compare every freakin new tablet that comes out to it. So you think that 2011 is not the year of the tablet? Ummmm, between you and Stevie, I'd rather take Stevie's words. Well unless of course you are a CEO of a company bigger than Apple, then maybe I would believe you more :)

well since we where talking about hight end smartphones and tablets i thought i didn't needed to add the word smartphone but i guess people are to dumb to figure that out... my bad in believing you actually had a brain net time I'll make sure i add the word thanks and my android colors came out? did it took you that long to see my currently OS preference is android? because I think half phonearena knows that, a click on my profile will give you an idea of some of the devices I currently have, thanks for checking. why do I think the iPad 2 feels not full? simple, I've being told that they will make another pad around fall, now that coming from a company that makes a smartphone/tablet a year I feels kinda odd and I (Me, This person Here, The One typing this) Feels kinda odd with this... this is why I think its not going to be a full apple product now the current Idea of tablet is more considered to be a LUXURY tool more than anything else now with further technology development (expected to be ready by fall this year) now Tabs with 2x 3x the curent power may start to take serious netbook space (and some laptop why not?) thats why i think 2012 will be more worthy of being called the year of the tablet, you don't have to take my word... I'm not someone with that money... yet CEO's give their opinion witch could be right or wrong, only time will tell

Not trying to be rude, but your English and grammar needs a lot of work. It seriously takes away from any argument you may have. I understand occasional typos but there is no excuse for typing in jibberish.

Of course I already knew. I just wanted to make the obvious more obvious. So you base your judgment on what you have heard? And you think your smart that way? Apple released the first ipad in April last year. What makes you think they will release it in the fall of this year? Oh yeah, because a little birdie told you, lol. So what woukd make the ipad2 a full product then? My goodness. Some people. They think they know better than Apple. It is this year, not last year, or next year, that tabs are being released left and right by all the players, and it's still the year of the tablet for you? Lol. When will it ever be the year of the tablet for you? Stores and manufacturers are releasing their tabs this year, and it's still not the year of the tablet for you. But for sure it's the year of the rabbit, lol.
