Motorola makes fun of getting #iLost

Back in 2010 after the release of the Apple iPhone 4 revealed a flawed antenna design and introduced Abtennagate and the Left-handed death grip to the cellular world, Motorola was quick to poke fun at Apple; the manufacturer is once again quick to respond to the problems with Apple's new mapping application...

Really.....most problems? All I will say about that is....Galaxy Nexus.

I seriously doubt that if their phones were so bad....they would be among the best sellers.

No Android phone is problem free. Moto cant hit a hoe run every time at bat. They kinda struck out with the Bionic....but hit a home run with the RAZR. Samsung.....struck out with the G Nex....but hit a home run with the GS2 and GS3.

The iPhone 5 is a lot faster than razr M. About maps- google will release google maps and apple will fix their maps app soon. Therefore iPhone 5 ( fastest phone on earth right now) > razr M

Still don't find it better then my Motorola Photon, just because they made it a lil faster and added .5" more screen doesn't make it a better phone. Still the same crappy boring OS as before and your still locked into apples web of features and uses for the device.

I think because C Net gave it that title. And really, thats great. Good for Apple. He did cover his self and say right now....lol.

The fact that the iPhone 5 cant do simultaneous talk and data like....every other LTE phone in existence.....is a fail. I mean the iPhone 4S and older could and they werent LTE. I wonder if Apple got rid of being able to do it over 3G with GSM phones. If they did......more fail. The iPhone 5 on AT&T will let us know...

I am curious about the Optimus G too..I thought that thing was a beast?

BlackBerry = best device for music, phone calls, text, emails and casual web surfing (mobile versions of web sites are readily available); requires some thinking to get to do what you need, but once you get a hold of it, everything flies.

iPhone = simple user interface, great for people who just want a simple, easy to use device without much critical thinking; good to keep the kids busy.

Android = good platform, but OS is way too fragmented; there are thousands of variations of the OS, every manuf has their own customized version of Android for various product lines; not as user friendly as iOS, but pretty much does the same exact thing as iOS (different ways of doing it)

If you must do a comparison, at least pick 2 IDENTICAL phones, ie same processor speed, same imaging technology, same build quality/materials .. ie SAME SPECS.

I've used iPhones, Android devices and Blackberry's. Got iPads and iPod Touch's as well. When it comes to an "everything" device, I always go to my Blackberry Bold 9930. I'm a do-er!! lol
