Techie needs serious mental health care. And some ativan, and prob blood pressure medicine. All those rabid rants he's posted in this article alone that repeat the same information and words over and over cannot be healthy. Neither can having so much hate for inanimate objects. Oh wait I'm sorry, all the "facts" he posts. Never have I seen a person post so much hate for something, then also claim that they own and use the very thing that they hate so much. He's nothing more than a immature, flat out lying troll. I don't understand why PA doesn't ban him already, this place would be much better without his essays.

He try's to give himself credibility saying he owns iOS. But his facts are so wrong. I'm sure he has own some iOS before. Don't thing he owns a red iPhone 7 or the iPad Pro.

Yeah because the video I posted opening it, must not be mine! Ha! you and Kiko can go puck yourselves. I frankly DGAF what you believe. You can be hanging off a cliff and I was walking by...I'd actually push your butt off vs saving you!

You never have to worry about what I own. Whatever or how much, it will be more than what your generic @$$ will ever have or own! I posted a video showing me opening my iPhone 7+, which I purchases after returning my last Note 7. That is proof. Here is my Note 7 and iPhone 7 side by side before I dumped my Note 7 -https://flic.kr/p/S8pwaf Video of me opening my iPhone 7https://flic.kr/p/S8pwaf I just proved yet again who actually has credibility. Sure isn't you! Your mom's calling you from my bed...she can't get up now...go help her! Again I show facts to back my claims. You dont show anything except how much of an idiot you actually are.

I posted facts. I dont see any hate. You just cant argue the facts. Typical of all you puss fanboys. You never can. You can dont debate, because you simply can't. Because you always will lose. There isnt even nothing here to debate. Apple and Smasung go back and forth for top spot every year. Apple takes the lead for 2 quarters, Samsung leads for 2 quarters. Each year has 4 quarters. Teh end results for all 4 quarters since 2011 is Samsung sells and makes more phones. I only provided an argument to someone posting false info on purpose. I didnt post ant false info.

So long as it doesn't stifle competition and innovation, I don't really care who sells the most or makes the most each year in the smartphone world. Just give me desired features at a reasonable price with good customer service, and I'm a happy camper.

I dont care who sells more either. I do hate @$$clowns posting false info and taking numbers and downplaying them or changing them to fit their bogus claims to begin with. Apple and Samsung both own the smartphone market and ever OEM makes changes based on them. Hwoever since the release of the S6, companies have been following Samsung more and not Apple. Especially since Apple releases the same phone 3 times in a row. However everyone including Apple is following Samsung. They lump 5 selling iPhone models as 1 phone vs just the Galaxy S for a single year and claim Apple sold more than Samsung which was by Kiko a lie. He doesnt even own own any phones. He had not one single phone listed in his profile. He is nothing more than a low life keyboard warrior. His computer is probably an IBM PC Jr running Windows 95, tuck down in some basement in the middle of some mountain in the middle east for all we know or care. Like most iTards, they are a hopeless bunch who hate to lose, when they didnt win anything in the first place. When Apple wins consumers lose. When Samsung wins, consumers win. When Apple wins, they take their cash and horde it. Samsung wins and spends it back to make even better products. They come here with their petty arguments about profits, sales and stock figures. None of which really matter in a tech article. Tech is about CPU's, GPU, displays, modems and the like. They dont mention those because what can they say...Apple doesn't have the best in any of the categories. They bring up single core scores, in a world where OS' and applications are all multi-thread...why because lose where it matters an win where it dont. That dont want to debate facts. They come here looking for articles tailors to BS, because they are all full of it!

You obviously care who sells more or you wouldn't have repeated the same drivel in so many comments in one article. And just because kiko doesn't have any phones listed in his profile doesn't mean he doesn't own any, wtf, how does that even make sense? I don't list anything in my profile yet I'm typing this on an iPhone 7 Plus, guess it's imaginary tho since I don't list it in my profile. Your a total idiot. And what are you 10 yrs old? Bring in the mom disses, seriously dude grow up. You post crap all the time that you claim is fact when 9/10 it's utter crap and nothing more than trolling. Your wife, if you have one should be embarrassed of you for how you act. I've seen children act more mature than you do. I'm serious when I said you need psychological help. The amount of hate you have to spew every day on here over a phone and a company is really unhealthy. You can't even have a rational conversation about tech, cause you can't stand anything negative said about samsung, and because you feel the need to post hate and nonsense about Apple constantly. Criticism isn't a bad thing, and ppl have a right to their opinion, just like you do. Only you take it to a really unhealthy and ridiculous level. Notice I'm not defending apple but nor am I speaking negative about any other OEM. It's just not that big of a deal, they are phones. I simply use what I like best which is Apple and I respect if someone else likes something different, as long as they act mature about it, which you don't. So many ppl are tired of your nonsense on here, and I'm just willing to tell you how ridiculously immature you are.
