The herd that you subscribe to, obviously. That's not to say that you're a blind fanboy, but everyone here (especially you) knows that you side more with iOS as opposed to Android. I realize that you may be aware that there are both, but both are equally massive and disillusioned. And there are "best such and such" on every iPhone thread as well.

That's fair. I mean, I do lean heavily iPhone the majority of the time. I guess I just want equal treatment across the site. If I called the iPhone the best anything, you can bet your bottom dollar someone will challenge that. So I figured "Why can't they be sheep too?" and ran with it.

What you said is true. The hypocrisy is astounding. I don't even know why he cares since he's too busy crying about Nokia and blackberry.

Lol, the fact that me having an adult conversation with someone more mature than you has you triggered is noted. I don't even know why you care since you're too busy trolling and whining like a little btch on Nokia and BlackBerry articles.

No, I'm just watching you get put in your place by kiko while having a beer. Continue crying, though.

Clearly I haven't been put in my place by anyone, and you're just here having a fit and seething with anger because two adults were having a mature conversation while leaving the adolescents like you out of it. But keep throwing your fit, though. It's quite humorous.

The only adult I see is kiko while you continue to pout and throw your temper tantrums. Even tedkord is more of an adult than you and that's saying something.

Lol, so you actually start having a little brat kid fit because I'm having a decent, mature conversation with an adult, and you project and say it's me. What irony. Even Arte8800 is more of an adult than you and that's REALLY saying something.

No, just laughing at you getting bested by kiko. It's funny how you try to dig yourself out of the hole you dug. Just keep getting buried. Even Greenman is more of a mature commenter than you are, and he has called you out on your multiple accounts.

Lol, no one, not even kiko, believes he bested me. You're just an instigating troll that's dckriding right now. But keep on riding. I know you're enjoying it. Even Cnour is more mature than you and talks more tech than you ever have, and I've posted solid proof about your multiple accounts.

Except in my case, it's backed up by the reviews. (Plus, a little secret - it enrages certain folk here when I say it)

Reviews do not speak for consumer interests, they speak for ad revenue and geekdum. There's a reason why the S series sells better than their Note counterpart, even though the latter is on sale during a more consumer prevalent time slot.

They speak to the educated opinions of experts. The S sells better because the Note is more of a niche product.

"They speak to the educated opinions of experts." Experts? What experts? They're Youtubers and crappy second rate journalists, hardly fitting of the title "experts". Face it dude, you have no objective basis to bolster such a claim... give it up. "The S sells better because the Note is more of a niche product." " .. niche product" "niche..." So, what you're saying is, the product doesn't garner mainstream consumer interest, and is thus irrelevant to them? Does that NOT prove your original statement faulty? How can something be "the best" when it only feels a certain role for certain people?

Yet, you are quick to mock Samsung whenever there is an article about how an unnamed analyst predicts low sales for an X product from Samsung.

Only if said product is lauded as some second messiah that any and every phone owner wants.

Doesn't matter. What matters is that you have double standards to what you like to take from the press and what not to take. You're okay with anonymous sources that backup your fanboyism, but disregard reviewers who are respected by many in the tech business. And in case you missed it, even Apple pro reviewers, techsites, and bloggers, do admit that Samsung flagships have been the best in recent years. There is a reason why all OEMs, even Apple are going back to glass back, adding wireless charging, going with OLED technology, and adding feature after feature that has been on Galaxy phones for years and were called gimmicky. Man, even when Samsung introduced IRIS scanning with the Note 7, people laughed at them for adding another gimmick and how people will never use anything but fingerprint scanners, yet here we are, Apple is trying to compete with it while ditching touchid for good, where Samsung left the fingerprint scanner for those who want it. Remember when Apple removed 3.5mm headphone jack, and rumours started talking that Samsung will do the same with the S9? I do, and I remember you believing those sources and laughing at Samsung fans for mocking Apple while their favorite OEM is about to "copy" them. Again, you decided to take the words of an anonymous source then, but you have a problem when people agree with reviewers that your favorite OEM, mine, and everyone's favorite OEM, go after them to present their products.

You're making a great deal of fuss over basic human behavior, you understand that right? Of course I have biases, EVERYONE HAS BIASES! The difference lied in the fact I don't use "TechTube" opinions as fact or guidance, I'd much rather trust analysts because at least they understand who truly holds weight with consumers. All that other stuff is nonsense...

Again, the analysts you like to trust are usually anonymous analysts who gets proven wrong within weeks if not days after their initial studies are out. You just like cherry picking. And nah, that is you my friend, you're the one who gets all worked out when an Android fan presents his opinion, while turning your blind eye to much worse Apple trolls on this site. How many Android fans agree with Techie? I can name few. How many Apple fans agree with Mxy or You_Dont_Say? I can name plenty. Anyways, next time you don't want someone to criticize your behavior, make sure you don't criticize someone's behavior as well. God bless.

Stuff it darkkmite. You have nothing to contribute but the usual tripe, so stop polluting my screen with your nonsense.

Says the hypocrite that has never contributed anything these comment sections besides your ignorance, idiocy, and incessant trolling. Take your own advice, stop polluting everyone else's screen, and shut shut yourself. And deactivate this account while you're at it.

Why don't you make me. And lol, are you going to pout just because I threw darkkmite back in his place where he belongs?

Lol, little boy please. You cowardly keyboard warriors talk a whole lot of sht hiding behind mommy and daddy's computer, all safe and sound. And the fact tang you're here raging against so many people like darkk has you looking ridiculous, lol.

142. Flash

Posts: 1972; Member since: May 19, 2017

The same can be said about you. And lol, you are a diva. No guy would ever say "little boy please." I guess you are trying to play the role of a woman to Darkkmite. Perhaps you can try and change your avatar to a note 8. Maybe he will notice you then.

Lol, your mom certainly didn't think I was a diva when we had you, my son. Now stop projecting. Everyone here knows that you're a little girly man that's hopelessly infatuated with me, darkk, ted and maherk. And techie was right about you. Judging by your avatar, you do like big black men, lol.

I would have put myself up for adoption if I were your son. But then again, I forgot that you wouldn't even make it to first base. You would follow techie, but you are pretty much another techie, so it doesn't surprise me.

Posts: 22107; Member since: May 28, 2014

Lol, no you wouldn't, because I abandoned your ugly idiot @$$ on the side of the road. That's why you really have such a gripe with me. As for first base, well, you're my son, so I guess I went way past that. Lol, now you're just seething with anger because techie talks more tech than you ever have, and he was right about you liking big black men. Lmao!

MG, that little runt has gotten boring. I look over him now. You're rocking your BB, I'm about to grab a Note 8, he's gonna keep trolling...it's all good.
