Instagram for Android uncovers the ugly class war between iOS and Android

0. phoneArena posted on 05 Apr 2012, 16:49

We have written a number of times about the absurdity of the fanboy wars and the absolute viciousness with which people attack each other over something as trivial as that person's choice in mobile phone. It is and...

Eyephone, cute...Let me guess you think your part of the illuminati? Guess what you're not, at best your a 3rd° F.M. and I doubt you even are a traveling man, and if you're claiming to be so, I am pulling your card...tell me brother where do you hail from? Don't try to be a part of something in which you have not a clue about. One last thing why don't you take down that avitar of the unspoken ones eye or I might have to show you a lesson or two in the square about what life is really about. Also I am quite wealthy although wait what kind of phone do I have, oh yes a Motorola Droid II GLOBAL in White. So this all of the sudden makes me a hunter/gatherer?

I never knew what Instragram was until I saw this post on another site a few days ago.

I still dont know what it is...

I agree its sad some ppl actually think like that. And dont care who knows...some comments are connected to real names. And real pics.

Some ppl take Android vs. iOS THAT serious? I should know....I've seen some of the comments on here

Same here. And interestingly, all these sites hyping Instagram don't care to say what it is. yes, I can search and find out but I think the first time a site reports it, it should mention what it is.

haha Nonsense and immature reaction by ios fanboys .... think about it more than half of the Olympic players comes from small town ...... and the wealthy guys don't have guts to match them same in this situation. so that means they are inferior? :rolf:

I don't think that's fair. I'm a big Apple Fanboy, but I wouldn't come close to saying those things.

Instagram is a hipster app in and of itself. Same goes with Path. These apps are small communities of people sharing their lives with each other. Hell, even I love the fact that Instagram isn't this big popular thing because there is less "noise" than Facebook. Now that it's been opened up to a much larger audience than just iOS, there will be more noise.

But people shouldn't assume that Android users are poor or have ruined Instagram. iOS users can take some pretty terrible photos as well. It's just now, you've got a larger audience that will take crappy pictures...the ratio is the same...but because the number is higher, the crappy picture count raises as well. Still, we have to get past this poor/rich crap. Having less money than someone else doesn't mean that you will automatically take crappy pictures. I'm from Detroit and a good portion of the time, I was taking photos of urban decay. Some of my favorite pictures.

Take good pictures...that's it.

That's a very odd comment for you to make. You're the poster boy for a fandroid, full of blind android rage.

If you think remix is an objective poster that's a negative tick on you.

No it's more than a small handful. The majority of iOS users including myself could give a rats ass about who's poor or rich and what photos users are posting. You want to take the behavior of a few and try to portray the entire base as idiots like those commenters which is wrong. From observing this forum,mi can tell you that there are just as many android idiots as there are iOS idiots. Too many times over, these fanboys take this crap too seriously.

sorry GH, but the majority of iOS users with brains are not the biggest posters on this board. The loud minority then ruins it for the silent majority. I didnt say no iOS users had brains, because thats completely untrue.. but the vast majority of posts on PA by iOS fans are by the local nutjubs like taco. Android definitely has its crazed fans as well, but since there seems to be more "android" posters these days it tends to keep the fringe from looking like the norm.. unlike the "iOS" side, where the fringe is the loud majority.

remix, you gotta cool it. in your very first comment on this post, you called Apple users "chalupas". you lost your standing in this conversation.

134. remixfa (Posts: 14604; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)


no, i didnt michael. I didnt call apple users chalupas, i said there were a few "chalupas" that used the exact terminology that you argued against in the article.

And what is a chalupa? Its a Mexican food... well, at least according to taco bell. know anyone on this board that uses such terminology and is named after a Mexican food? It was a sly way of pointing out that person without calling him out. I figured people would have made the connection. Guess I'll have to be more direct, lol.
