"You just gave a no you answer." Um, what?

http://bgr.com/2014/10/02/iphone-6-plus-vs-galaxy-note-4-5/ I've praised other devices before. You just see only one thing apparently.

I think people attack you way too much. You're not bad. Obviously some people are going to prefer one device over another.

Nothing wrong with preferring one device over another. It's when he TROLLS the other devices he doesn't like that's the problem.

You call every comment against your platform trolling.

Every comment that you make? Yes, because you're usually trolling BlackBerry.

We all have our preferences. People sometime just attack without reading first.

You definitely attack other devices, whether you read the comments / articles or not. You just see the name "BlackBerry" or "Motorola" and your trolling begins.

Criticism or disagreement with a decision isn't trolling. Once again get over it.

"My platform"? While BlackBerry is my PLATFORM OF CHOICE, it's hardly "my" platform. Spewing negative BS on just about every BlackBerry and Motorola article is called TROLLING. Once again, get over yourself and quit it with the trolling.

You tend to come out more specifically against Motorola than for anyone else. And I will agree that the company has made mistakes, but that's no reason to keep flogging them for it.

I only give them flack when they continue to make obvious mistakes such as the botched Moto 360 launch and the inability to actually get any in stock.

So you pull out an article from bgr, (one of the BIGGEST iPhone fan sites, btw) and you expect me to believe this is proof that you've praised another device when your screen name on that site is not readily known, thus for all I know you could be lying?? Try again, iFan. I don't fall for BS that easy.

My thoughts exactly. +1. He'll probably say that he typed that on his Note 4 again. ROFLMAO.

Indeed! Lmao!!

I have a note 4. get over it.

You do not. If you did, you'd spend more time defending Android due to the fine device that is the Note 4 as opposed to sucking up to the iPhone and bashing Motorola. Lying seems to be a prerequisite to your trolling.

Do you really think I care about you believing me or not?

Clearly you do.

I don't

You do.

72. Mxyzptlk unregistered

It was on the first page in Google results you twit. I can provide more links. There were several articles on PA about the 6 outperforming several high end Android phones in benchmarks. http://goo.gl/EYLnhU "I don't fall for BS that easy" that's because you're too busy spewing it?

"Twit". Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahh​ahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!! Hit a nerve, have I? Nowhere in that bgr article you referenced is the name "Mxyzptlk". If you're going by another name on that site, why not let it be known when you referenced said article? None of this changes that fact that you constantly troll BlackBerry and Motorola articles. NO ONE on PA spews more BS than you, Mxy.

85. Mxyzptlk unregistered

No you didn't hit a nerve. You're just like a fly that won't stop buzzing around the head. You asked for proof and I gave it to you. Don't act like it isn't substantial because it is.

There was not one shred of proof in what you posted. You are akin to that little turd that keeps coming back after you flush it. You just won't stay away from BlackBerry articles with your trolling BS.

77. meanestgenius

Posts: 21618; Member since: May 28, 2014

STILL waiting for that article, Mxy. If there is one, that is. And if there is, why not just post the link to one using the name "Mxyzptlk"? Or is it that you can't do it?

So I asked you to SHOW PROOF THAT YOU PRAISED ANOTHER OS. Either you just DIDN'T UNDERSTAND WHAT I WAS ASKING, or maybe you just have some sort of reading impediment because you posted 3 articles in which you ONLY commented in ONE of the articles you posted, and it was a NEGATIVE comment at that AGAINST a Samsung device and IN DEFENSE of your precious iPhone. So in other words: YOU DO NOT PRAISE ANY OTHER OS/OEM EXCEPT APPLE. As I said. And you have the nerve to call me a "twit"? Rotflmao!!

97. Mxyzptlk unregistered

I'm showing proof of articles that clearly prove that the iPhone 6 achieves better benchmarks than several Android phones. How the f- do you not quite understand that by now? You keep twisting stuff around. You have no freaking idea what you're arguing about.
