I'll just leave this right here: http://www.phonearena.com/news/Report-iOS-devices-failed-more-often-than-Android-units-did-during-Q3_id87913 Apple devices failed the most for an entire quarter. Your link compared to mine is like a cool, summer breeze (your link), to a raging hurricane (my link).

You just recycle and regurgitate the same old comments, alphagenius/JakeLee.

I'll just leave this here: http://www.phonearena.com/user/thealphagenius Appeared on the same day Mxy was suspended for trolling.

Exactly. And when he got called out on it by several people here on PA by on the latest BlackBerry article about the DTEK app, he lied and denied it, as we all knew he would. He even tried to say it was me, but as one of the people who called him out stated, and as everyone here knows, that's definitely mxy.

No, you and I both know that's you in another one of your aliases, as admitted by you.

NO ONE believes your lies, mxy. We all know that's you, mxy. Stop projecting and just own up to your multiple accounts.

You can post those links until your pimply red face turns blue. NO ONE believes you, but EVERYONE sure does believe that you have multiple aliases, including your most recent alphagenius account. By the way: https://youtu.be/eN626TNmWI4 That's ^^ Alphageek in that link proving you wrong about he and I being the same person. And this: http://www.phonearena.com/user/thealphagenius ...is the alphagenius account that you created to mock me. And everyone knows it's you, no matter how much denial-sauce you spew to the contrary. It's hilarious watching you scramble to prove that you're not the faux-account creating ├╝ber troll that everyone here says you are. It just oozes desperation.

What's even more telling is that you always stop commenting with your aliases accounts once your off suspension, just like you did with your alphagenius account. Your next move will now be to make a comment using that account in an attempt to disprove what I'm saying, but all that will do is prove what I'm saying to be true. But if you don't make a comment with your alphagenius account, you'll be proving what I initially said to be correct.

Typical poorly written rebuttal...... how charming of some poor fool with little to no satisfaction in his miserable life.

I find it interesting that people censor themselves on this site... I've typed ass on countless occasions and have never received any corrective action for it... then again, I might have been using it in a more suitable context.

Why would anyone want a crappy update.

105. kiko007

I don't necessarily WANT them. I'm just willing to accept such updates, because I know a fix will be coming shortly after.

Even with 50 updates, the iPhone does less than a 4 year old Android. If Apple would stop breaking stuff with each updates then they wouldn't need so many updates.

That is far from the truth. I have had many crashes and problems on lollipop with the Nexus 7 tablet than I did with the iphone I was using at the time.

So I guess that the word of a single Apple loyalist/sheep holds more merit than a research organization that holds no ties to either group they're comparing?

116. Mxyzptlk unregistered

No, but a quick search of Google and a look at the comment below will. Not my fault if you can't accept the truth.

My Nexus 7 was killed by Lolliflop. I am having a Bluetooth issue with iOS 10 but never had any apps crashed. I find my 6s plus to be more stable then my aging Note 3 and smoother too.

117. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Same here. Lollipopgate has destroyed my Nexus and my note 4.

Your laggy brain is a fail

The fact you always dwcebd iOS makes you a fail. In the good ole days, I think we all can agree, thst when and OEM makes it's own software and hardware it was a strategic advantage. Times have changed. What hasn't changed are idiot with teenager brains who are stuck on stupid. The Mac is consider the defacto garbage. In 2004 it has a failure rate of 15%, when Apple was making o my 1.5M per year. Dell who had been making and selling 12M computers had a failure rate of 16%. Yet that means Dell had 10 times more hardware in people's hands working just . Apple iPhone 6 family if devices for 2 years compiled a 25% failure rate just for a single model. While Samsung's worse phone, the S6 was at 7%. Again please spwk of who the failure here is. It's such fruitcakes.
