Going forward, I may be getting an iPhone. They are absolutely great products, with a great UI and way more productive apps than Android has.

The Apple hate on this forum is ridiculous.
THANK YOU!

I just switched from a Sensation 4g(I have been an Android fanboy since the G1 release day) running different custom roms, and honestly android has flaws. From day to day I would be frustrated with the phone in some way, now with the 4s everyday I am happy to use my phone because it works with anything I use it for.

I would say wait for the Nexus Prime to be announced and see what Ice Cream Sandwich has to offer, but honestly IOS was a wonderful switch and I could not be more happy.

This.

The iPhone 3G didn't quite have enough power so I imagine a fair few flocked for 24 month contracts when the iPhone 3GS launched.

Now those 3GS contracts have ended, why not buy the 4S?

Obviously I'd have the Nexus + Android 4.0 any time of the day but that's because I'm a big fan of playing with technology. I get bored of interfaces easily and so the fact that I can customise android makes it an instant buy for me.

However, if you just want a phone that is easy to use and doesn't really mess you about then the iPhone is probably the way forward.

The reason I "bash" on Apple products, such as iPhone and whatnot, is this. People claim "ehhhehhhehhe I just want a smartphone that isn't a headache with all the different ROMs and stuff dude." Really? In my eyes, if you're tech-inclined enough to even WANT a smartphone, you should be more than enough inclined to tinker with the phone, hence why Android is the way to go. Just my opinion in the end, it's just the way I see it from the "custom PC builder" side of the spectrum. I don't see why people pretend to be like they're so into and up to date with technology when they're getting a phone that is limiting in customization abilities. (By that I don't only mean the OS itself, but also the huge library of hardware you can choose from that is updated all through the year by different manufacturers)

So... my mom, who just wants a phone that can surf Facebook and play Angry Birds, is too ignorant to deserve a phone? That's an odd thing to say.

Not everyone has the time or will to get a phone that needs to be messed with to work optimally. Some people want a phone, as many have said before, that just works. And what's so wrong with that? I commend Apple for making a UI so simple that even a child can use it.

To say that anyone who wants a smartphone should be as knowledgeable about them as you or me is to say that everyone should spend hours looking through different specs and making sure that battery will last them all day oh wait whats the difference between 4G and 3G and HSPA+ and LTE and snapdragon and Exynos and I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT'S GOING ON!!!!

The last thing the average person needs right now is more complexity in their lives.

SOOO this.

I am not a smartphone owner right now, but I will be in the next two months (good time to get in, eh?) I have an ipod touch and it is a very useful tool, yet I am super bored with the interface. I want to tinker and tweak, and even jailbroken the iPhone doesnt really offer much.

There is nothing wrong with either platform. We should probably stop assuming why people are buying which product. I feel that one is superior but that doesnt mean it actually is. I think it is impossible to decide which is "better" because they cater to different wants/needs

No offense, but I find the logic for this severely flawed. I love tinkering with the hardware of computer because computers are my hobby, but that enjoyment does not extend to tinkering with the software of my phone. I am more than technically inclined to tinker with a smartphone, but I choose not to because like most normal people out there, I don't want to and feel I should not have to. When I buy a smartphone, it is to check email, get on the internet, occasionally play games, take simple pictures, make calls and text messages, and that is it. I do not care to or want to flash a new ROM, remove bloatware, and under volt a smartphone in order to make the battery last long enough for my phone to last throughout my work hours. For a lot of us, it is us wanting to use a smartphone to its expected functionality without going through the annoyance of "tinkering" with the phone.

We get it that a lot of Android users love tinkering and we respect that, but don't get it twisted and say things such as "I don't see why people pretend to be like they're so into and up to date with technology when they're getting a phone that is limiting in customization abilities and hardware upgrades." It is not pretending. Limiting customization is hardly being not up to date; the iPhone 4S is more than comparable to the competition. Customization is personal choice and not indicative of intelligence or tech enthusiasm and certainly not a requirement to be "technically inclined."
