I agree 100%, iPhones are great phones no doubt. It's just so much more exciting to have Android fans because there is something new coming out every month or say. You get an iPhone and then what.... wait for a year for a new device. Android has the SGSIII that just came out, the Note II, the next Nexus, and much more to look forward to just this year.

Yea but who would spend so much money every three months to purchase a new device?

Well yes, but there's multiple companies making android phones. LG, Samsung, Motorola, Pantech, etc.

Apple is only one company so they can't make a new phone every couple of months. It wouldn't make sense.

So, will the iphone's boot screen read the following?:

"Samsung did not copy APPLE"

Seeing how my wife has problems with her 4S, I am so glad that I did not buy an iphone in 2007/08 - I was going to - but now, looking back - I would have been bored it with it.

All my co workers are switching to iPhones. They tell me they're sick of android phones because they're laggy and freeze up.

Your mirror got tired of looking at your face cause you worship Apple so it just decided to break.

No lie, I was one of the many iphone users that thought that the iPhone was superior and nothing could touch it. I was just going off of what society and apple were throwing into the consumer's heads. Then, I did my own research and educated myself and phonearena.com was the catalyst of my research and my switch over to Android. There is no way I will ever look back, especially with Apple's bogus practices and lack of innovation.

don't feel special, cause there are many people who are in opposite situation. They've only used Android devices and are switching to iPhone. One of the editors for example in PhoneDog was soo pro-Android, but then he switched to the iPhone 4S. Even though there were many things that annoyed him, he still really enjoyed the phone a lot [he was later attacked in the comments section by pathetic Android users]

Good for you for finding what you want, but there others that do the opposite. And honestly, depending on what iPhone 4G/5/6 brings, you can expect a crapload of Android users jumping ship. But that all depends on what Apple decided to do.

I think it's clear that Apple has it's followers. It might seem a bit closed minded but I don't think so. I think they just simply love it for what it is (especially women) and don't really get down to the details of it. It's not as complex as an Android device, but it does enough to keep customers happy. So even the slightest updates satisfy their customers. After all it already is very popular. They don't really have anything to prove. I guess they're not as pressured to compete. I'm willing to bet that Apple very well could make a 2GB ram with a Quad-Core processor and provide a 12MP camera, but why? If it can take 4 years doing it? It's clever marketing.

i dont think its anything apple can do to please you guys in here...lol

if they add widgets = copy android
if they beef up the RAM 2GB = copy android
if they make a 4.8in screen = copy android
if they make siri respond faster = copy android
if they add microSD = copy android
if they stop all patent lawsuits it still wouldnt be enough to get a decent discussion on this website...lol

i think the phone looks amazing... the software is well polished... and its popular...

to me those are the most important points to selling a phone...

SGS3 didnt break records because of its spec sheet...

it looks good... the software has been improved to not lag... and they marketed it well that it gained popularity
