I love how idiot fandroids say iOS is an OS that's capable of less or dumbed down. Fandroids name me a task that iPhone can't do. A task would be checking email, navigating, using q scanner app to scan and fax a document. Note hacking of your phone is not task completion.

view flash videos on the stock browser, use a file manager, send music and other things through bluetooth, use your idevice as an USB mass storage device, not have to be hooked up ti iTunes for EVERYTHING! load custom ringtones, actually multi-task, hook up to a HDTV and browse the net on it,and last but not least, MAKE A f**kING CALL!!! need any more? i just killed it. yes, iOS IS A DUMBED DOWN OS

its funny how people like to hate... really who cares ? it all boils down to a person to person basis. everyone likes and wants different lthings out of their smartphone... same with cars. not everyone wants to buy a v8 sportscar, some peopel want a 4 cyl honda civic thats just works! everyone is going to have an opinion, but for someone to get so upset because someone else thinks differently, well thats absurd. ive used them all and for me, the iphone does what i need. i dont want my phone to replace my laptop, i want it to be a phone, that i can play games on, browse the web, text, email, ect... iphone hands down has the best app selection, and apps run better on ios because of the fact developers have better tools to use. apple has always been an inovator in consumer electronics. so has microsoft. the primary reason android still dominates the market is because it has so many devices from very low end to high end.

Definitely the best post you've made so far. Some people want a Honda Civic 4 cyl that gets good gas mileage and is reliable. I want the Bugatti Veyron 16cyl quad-turbo.

Either way I tried to look up the iPhone four on apples site and it won't let me buy it says down for repairs or something so that's kind supposed to happen I guess but pretty cool

actually iphone 4 is a 1ghz cortex a8 cpu, check your facts first superandroidevo. i have owned a wp7 htc hd7 running mango, GS1 and GS2, and a nexus s 4g... the iphone is smoother than all of them. not because it is dumbed down, it is more efficiently processing information. maximizing battery life and preformance. you were exactly right when you said andoird is doing 100 thing at once, and this is a very bad thing unless you have 4 gb of ram, which the best of the best smartphones right now only just got 1gb. apple got ir right when they decided to control and manufacuture its products. wp7 could have been just as nice if microsoft would have tqaken this approach. the biggest problem with android aside from its fragmentation, is that its has too many oem's making their phones!!! updates are slow, certain phones dont even get them, and every other month your phone is old news!

No dizzy, it is dumbed down. The OS is much much lighter and leaner than Android. And it doesn't have the ability to actually multitask. So if your OS is very lightweight, can only run 1 program at a time, or 1 foreground and 1 backgroumd, and it's running a 800Mhz A4 chip then of course it's going to be smooth. Another reason the internet browser runs so smooth and loads fast is because flash is missing. When the only thing your browser has to do is load HTML then of course it's going to be super quick and smooth. That's where dual core comes in. Once Android got dual core, it was able to load HTML on 1 core and Flash on the other at the same time enabling it to have the ultimate browsing experience. See the SGS2 Epic Touch 4G for example. Also, when the Nexus Prime comes out, 1.5Ghz dual core + LTE, no other phone out will even come close to comparison of what that web experience will be like, ESPECIALLY on a 720p HD screen.

Ok so the iPhone5 drops today. The Nexus Prime drops in a few weeks and will be more powerful than the iPhone6. iPhone fan statement: "I just want a phone that works! I don't care about how fast it is or it can't watch videos and lots of other things! I just want to call/text/web browse." Android fan statement: "I want to take over the world!" It's kind of what it boils down to. Seems like iPhone users just want to do simple boring phone things with some cool simple apps here and there while us Android users are basically trying to max out the CPU and change every single color and icon while making the OS as smooth as possible and attempting to crash benchmarks with our Voodoo ROMs while running Facebook, internet, twitter, Angry Birds, and some awesome new game or N64 emulator playing Starfox. If you don't demand much out of your phone, go iPhone. If you want your phone to be a laptop replacement, go Nexus Prime.

I just want my phone to do most things perfectly not everything half ass

Well you got part 1 right about iPhone and part 2 wrong about Android. Sure the iPhone can do most things great but there is a long list of things it can't do. I don't want a smartphone to be as smart (or dumb) as a phone that was released 2 years ago. Cmon, the new iPhone5 will have the same capabilities as the original Droid did when it FINALLY got Froyo. The only phones that do everything half assed are the s**tty generic Android phones sold by (practically given away) by companies like Cricket and Walmart.

So you're basically a kid that wants to Hack your phone and play games. iPhone users are adults who want to complete actual TASKS. The point of a smartphone is to use it as a tool. If you want an unreliable toy go DROID.

wow, so many iphone haters. i wonder if there are any android haters out there. Its cool if you have a valid reason to hate on the iphone, but for all those mindless iphone haters out there, rebels without a cause that dont know why they hate the iphone or hate the iphone because everyone else is doing it, please stop acting like the mindless adults on south park. I have had an android phone and an iphone. In my opinion android phones do a whole lot more than iphones do, but nevertheless iphone does the little it does flawlessly and smoothly. Android needs to focus more on the quality of their OS. The second the android OS does all it does flawlessly (multitasking...etc) it will be better to me than the iphone. I want a phone that does what it says it does perfectly not a phone that does a lot more things imperfectly. quality over quantity...that is my preference

We hate the iPhone because we still can't understand to this day how a phone with old slower hardware with an OS that hasn't changed in 4 years is selling like hotcakes. It's like saying, "why is a 2008 Macbook nonPro selling more than an Asus quadcore 3.5Ghz with 16gb Ram and the latest video card?" It just doesn't make any sense. Be we have come to realize that Apple can sell you "not so smart" people anything they want because their marketing tactics are genius. They could probably sell you a hot pile of poop with a Benjamin on the bottom and an Apple sticker on the top for $800. Granted they leak everything out slowly telling you what shade of brown it is and if the poop is going to be bigger than 3.7" or not with corn or rice in it. Apple's marketing rocks.

well when you have an OS that is flawless in what it does i can see that happening. once again quality over quantity. as for apple's marketing, they just dont sell a device they sell a fad, a fashion statement. now i dont know why other ppl buy an iphone but i know i have had android phones and iphones and operating wise iphone gets the job done. i personally dont see how they can make the iphone better, it just works. i personally think its some for vudu cause i dont see how a 5 megapixel camera is taking better pictures than an 8 megapixel camera or how the mic on the iphone records high quality sound. One big reason why i prefer the iphone to an android is because of itunes. I think android needs an itunes equivalent for their phones.

Don't even get me started on the camera thing. I'm not at all surprised a 5 MP camera can outperform an 8 MP, or a 24 MP one for that matter. There's only so much lens one can fit in a phone, and the rest is software. For all we know, 5 MP could be the optimum size but people always think bigger is better. As for the iPhone, I believe it's image processing voodoo.

You don't understand because you're a dumb sheep. People actually want a phone that works well, has lots of apps, good battery life and is stable. You guys freak out about it not having flash. Apple can put flash on it if they want. There's a reason it doesn't. It improves performance and battery life. That's just one example. But idiot fandroids will never get it. Mean while iPhone users have the highest satisfaction ratings by far. Android users deal with constant force closes, reboots, incompatible apps, crappy apps and malware. You brag about your specs even though e phones performance still sucks. SGS II is a great example of how weak android is. After today's announcement it will be forgotten. ON TO THE NEXT "IPHONE KILLER"

There's one line here I agree with, and that's that there is no "iPhone killer". No, there's no single iPhone killer, but the variety of Android phones out there collectively give everyone a viable alternative. The notion that any single phone is the "iPhone killer" is just media ignorance.

So you disagree that people want a stable phone that is easy to use and has great apps?

I dispute your claim that "Android users deal with constant force closes, reboots, incompatible apps, crappy apps and malware". There's a big difference between "some" Android users and "all" Android users. Keep your sweeping generalizations and hyperbole to yourself.
