[DSLreport] Smartphone Poll: 46% Want iOS vs 32% Android - Page 8

I was simply stating that the huge majority of iPhone owners feel like the iPhone is the absolute top dog, untouchable phone in every way possible, which is completely false as of the past 8-12 months, and they refuse to collaborate and agree on that out of pure fan blindness. You can explain to them all you want about the hardware differences and teach them what's better in which phone; there's no cure for blindness yet. I guess in the end I don't mind it one bit! I've profited so much from Apple products, so in a way I love the conformity there is out there of having Apple products!



The debates have been pretty mature and respectful so far.




Dude. A tablet computer in your pocket? Don't kid yourself. Those larger screen phones not even half an inch larger than an iPhone. I'd say the HD2/EVO/Droid X are the perfect sized smartphones to carry around. Now I have the G2x which is slightly smaller and, while I still love the phone, I miss my HD2's nice big screen.

Again on the price? What's laughable is that I went from a single core, 1GHz phone to a dual core 1GHz, NVIDIA powered phone for -$100, and I guarantee I could have gotten it for less than that. (If you missed it: I sold my HD2s for $250 each, and spent $150 on 2 new G2xs.) When I had the 3G and the 3GS came out, I was lucky to get $100 for it.
The perfect phone size is subjective, like I said I preferred the iphone's size to that of the larger ones. To each his own on that front.

Also, I wasn't aware that Android phone owners were able to upgrade their phones whenever they wanted and MAKE $100! IF THAT'S THE CASE THEN SIGN ME UP!

Have I said that you need to upgrade Android phones often to make the best out of the platform? No! Although Android hardware tends to have ridiculously fast update cycles, you do not need to get the latest in order to enjoy Android. I have the HTC Desire HD and it fulfills all my needs despite it being reduced to a mid-tier phone. My phone can last for more than 2 years thanks to the Android community's commitment to supporting even legacy phones. Longevity actually improves thanks to mods and updates as opposed to planned obsolescence on Apple devices.

What I am trying to point out is that Android phones have better upgrade value because most of the time, hardware improvements are noticeable and can be had for far less price than an Apple counterpart. This is not to say that such upgrades are a necessity, but rather are valuable enough to warrant one if so desired.

Don't forget the customization!

I love how blackberry has just kind of died over the years.

Now is a time for an Android rally When you see your friend on facebook as the infamous question: Android or iOS, you tell them Android and blow them away with reasoning!

eBay.com dude, sell your phone for full street value. I sold my HD2s on Craig's list to the very first offer I got, and ended up getting more offers for what I listed it for which was $300.

I'll definitely be checking out all of the options on both sides of the fence when the time comes for it though.

Oh, and definitely want 3D on my phone, whichever one I get.
You really need to try the newer Android phones then.

Watch from 8:10. The reviewer was at first insistent that the iPhone 4 was smoother, and changed his mind after seeing the G2x.

I own an Android phone and I'd rather have an iPhone. If this thing dies, I buy an iPhone and switch to Verizon. Simple as that.

That's cool "dude". I just checked eBay and my 32GB version is going for $500+. What was the point again?
post #79 of 138
That's new, not used. $500 NOW yes, check back when the iPhone 5 is out.
