[GIZ] iPhone vs Android: Who Aged Better? - Page 6

Even to date i dont believe much with 3G or 4G simply because here in Canada is way to expensive and times i want to use it its out of coverage area or in subways.
Using the 2G nowadays isn't so bad (except the speed of course), but that's because you can put apps on it. But back then, when it first came out, you didn't have an app store and you didn't have jailbreaking. It didn't do anything that a normal phone couldn't, and in fact, sometimes it did even less.

If you took away the touchscreen novelty then yes, there were plenty of phones like the 2G and even better than it. Off the top of my head I can think of the Nokia 9300, Nokia 9500, and iPaq h6340 (and there were many more). Sure, NOW those phones look like junk...but compared to a stock iOS 1.x with no apps they were SO much more powerful.

Maybe, but if you go back just one year to the 2G and 3G then Apple wins.

Either way I think they're just about equal to each other at this point and it only comes down to preference, and none of this conversation matters.

The Nexus One is still the best looking phone ever out on the market IMO.

Oh and my HTC Mogul with Windows Mobile on it, totally kicked the original iPhone's ass. I had mine jailbroken and made my own custom skins. A decent camera and plus it actually had multitasking... Some days I still miss that phone.

Absolutely nothing worse than people stating their opinions as facts.

I can understand the argument for saying iphones are simpler, but simpler is most certainly NOT better for a lot of people. Simpler is generally better for those who don't care to take the time to learn. Just look at the website we're on, how many of us take the 'simpler' approach to our PC's?...virtually nobody.

I can customize my Android phone to be the exact phone I want it to be. I can't do that with any iphone. My wife owns an iphone 4 and she most certainly does not want to have to spend any time reading/learning/figuring out etc. when it comes to her phone...she just wants it to work. The iphone works for her, it doesn't for me and a lot of others.

There was an article on Toms Hardware (i think it was toms hardware) once about how the worst part of apple is it's users and it was absolutely spot on. The people who use their products really are the worst part of apple.

Do you cook your own meals three times a day? Do you use a variable-output PSU in your computer? Do you monitor its clock generator with an oscilloscope when overclocking? Did you design and build your own car? Did you write your own BIOS in assembly language?

Simpler isn't just for those who don't care to learn, it's also for the people who don't want to waste time messing with it when they could be doing something productive instead.

My iPhone is the phone I want it to be. Just because some app's icon isn't rotated to point to the moon's azimuth in orbit during the winter solstice it doesn't mean it's any less of a phone.

I wouldn't care either way, at least it's not a Blackberry or Palm.

Apple: Yeah it's basically the same shape but they've still managed to sell them to millions of people and they've shook up the entire way we think about phones and how they fit in our lives. A few years ago we were all like "Oh look my phone flips open and plays snake wheee" now our phones are more important to some of us than our computers and for many are the primary means by which we access the internet.

Android: The development was a bit shaky at first and I don't think I would have gone near any of the phones the first year but thanks to a few good devices they finally pulled through. My next phone will most likely be an android device thanks to the multitude of different hardware it runs on. Android for me is all about having a choice.

Addendum:
Oh yes, I use a iPhone 4 btw. I love some of the narrow minded people I meet out there. The two I always get are "You can't get to the battery" and "You can't customize it" LOL Well sir, I can do both.

In fact some people do a double-take when they see my phone something along the lines of "Wait I thought that was an iPhone, oh it is but it doesn't look like an iPhone WTH"

Think about it like driving an automatic vs. manual. Some people, myself included prefer the manual. I like the control of choosing to skip gears, deciding when to shift, and the experience itself. Some people don't want to deal with it or think about it an prefer to automatic.

I would probably prefer an Android so I could customize it as I please, however my employer develops iOS games currently, and most of the company and my wife have iPhones so it made more sense for me to get an iPhone 4S (free texting and MMS between all iOS5 devices), and I am fairly happy with it, although I'd like a bigger screen.

The GTR is much faster than the Porsche, especially with 0-60 times

This is correct, the GT-R goes 0-60 in about 3.2 if it has "launch control", the 911 is around 4.2. However the Porsche 997 is also 3.2, matching the GT-R.

iPhone is beating android...Really??? Android has around 45% of the market share...yea iphone is a great phone but the only reason it looks like iOS is doing good is because there is only 1 device running it...ok more than one with all the different itterations of the iphone... my point is a single android phone wont sell as many units because there are so many different options for a user to buy when they buy android...5 iphones next to each other is 5 iphone that look exactly the same. 5 ( insert android phone here) all next to each other and each one is going to be different and personal to that specific user...
