I agree about iMessage. I was android only until last Oct when I went with iphone 7. I love the hardware, and iMessage just works better since my family are all on iphones, but there are so many things I miss, like being able to quiet my phone for a couple of hours, and then having the ringer be enabled again. Just works.

1 positive article won't change much. Android gets trashed by the writers here most of the time while iOS gets trashed rarely.

Meanwhile iOS doesn't get trashed at the same condition.

Says the biggest hypocrite in this site. Seriously, using the word "hypocrite" despite knowing that you are the one called hypocrite by many people in this site makes you look like an idiot.

Doesn't the "great mobile OS ever" deserve to be held up to high standards tho, el oh el

Both OSes should be held up to high standard. I don't like iOS honestly but it has some advantages against Android. These PA writers should be unbiased while judging them. But they focus on baiting Android fans and fanboys with biased articles. Not talking about this article though but most others are biased as hell. I know you're being sarcastic but screw that.

That is probably why people send so much hate toward the articles you write... its ok to be bias to Apple. Just admit it.

So I don't move I use both. Both are awesome but if I have to pick one Pixel will be it

Google software support is the main reason Pixel is great. If Google could somehow convince the rest of the phone OEM to let Google take charge of the phone software update. That would be a giant step forward in term of Android overall appeal. If Nokia were to follow this software path with their awesome hardware than I will definitely stick with them.

And still... The paid iPhoneArena will give the iPhone 8 the 9.5 out of 10 points.

Already hating on the iPhone 8 even though it isn't even announced and no specs or whatever is official. Sad life.

Finally... I get to see someone appreciating the notifications in Android. Notifications in ios are a mess.

Even being literally the only person in my family not using an iPhone, I still can't bring myself to make the switch. I get bored after 30 seconds of picking up my wife's iPhone.

The problem is that you play with your phones too much and not with her!
