If you want a real smartphone, you don't buy iOS; you buy Android. It's beyond me how any device running iOS can be classified as a smartphone when its rather the opposite.
Closed systems have their benefits as well, generally a closed system is more secure and has better performance given identical hardware to an open system. Some people could care less about customization to the extent most of us on OCN would generally want. If you want something simple and elegant, the iPhone is fine, if you want the newest and best hardware and customization, go with an Android. Each system has its strengths and weaknesses, I'm surprised how few people acknowledge something so obvious.
However, your comments about iOS-based phones not being smartphones is patently false, unless you have some evidence to back up that claim. And it being a closed system has nothing to do with it.

How many of you agree using a cracked screen iPhone sux and I see them regularly?
Yea this is something the review didn't cover, maybe because of the nearly identical casings between the 4. However other reviews have covered it pretty well and have found the 4S to break just as easily as the 4. I'd be interested to see how easily the 4/4S cracks when a standard case is on the phone, I don't know many people that don't use a case at all.Edited by lordikon - 11/2/11 at 4:55pm
