[MR] iPhone 4S Closes Sales Gap on Android - Page 14

I think part of it has to do with the fact that they market one product (iphone) and they market that one product well. It seems like there's a new Android based phone every few months/sometimes weeks, so no phone lasts long enough to make any kind of impact. Android phone manufacturers are constantly flooding the market with new products resulting in a lot of generic sounding products that fall from the public eye in a flash.

People make a big deal out of each new iPhone because they know it's going to be the premier ios product for a good while. If ios had the iPhone 5, iPhone 5 4g, iPhone 5 Epic, iPhone 5 Galaxy Touch, iPhone 5 Xtreme Galaxy Touch II Xtra Xtreme!! edition all released within a few months of each other, each particular phone would generate much less interest individually than one significant upgrade would.

Not saying things should change, as I know Android manufacturers are in a constant game of one-upsmanship to have the new big Droid. Just giving my thoughts on the situation.

I don't think Samsung, Moto and HTC put enough thought into the names of their phones. I just saw a commercial for a Samsung Galaxy 2 Skyrocket or something. I don't know where in the world these companies come up with these names, but they're absolutely terrible.

The Galaxy S2 Skyrocket.... it's an AT& exclusive. Slightly bigger, slightly faster, better battery than the regular S2. My mother just got one. It was her move away from iPhone.

(Do I need to mention that if you watched the Infinity Blade 2 video you'd have seen some pretty amazing light rays too...)
You don't consider EPIC Games a "proper developer"? Hmm....?

Case and point, the iPad2 still only outputs Tegra 2 capable graphics.  Yawn...
I could argue that it doesn't, again, but ultimately whether it does or not is irrelevant. The fact of the matter is we'll see more and more powerful games coming out for iOS as time progresses (and especially so after the release of the iPad 3), just as we will with Tegra 3.
Plus, the iPad 2 runs every title at 60 FPS unlike Tegra 2 so even if it did have the same level of graphics it's still going to be smoother on the iPad 2.
... Yeah, no. There's hundreds of millions of happy people using iOS devices. They buy them because they like them, and they do what they want so they don't return them, just like any other device -- no one buys a device that's been marketed to be "all that" and then doesn't return it if it is disappointing.

Didn't I link you videos of PhysX like physics, water physics, high resolution shadows, high quality lightning, fur shade effects, realistic dynamic shadows, etc? This runs mainly on the GPU, not the CPU. I can wave the proof right in your face and you always ignore it. Oh well, you're the only one that loses his credibility.

Honestly, I don't see your point because I never denied that it didn't have great physics or any of what you mentioned so I don't see how I'm ignoring your proof, but anyway:

You linked a demo of GlowBall which showed great physics, dynamic shadows, and real time lighting in action. That requires a quad-core CPU which is why we don't see any of that on iOS yet. The iPad 3 will change that.

Apples OS is fine won't deny that but too bad Apple doesn't have an OS that allows it to work with any home built computers like the flexibility of Microsoft Windows. I digress....
I just recently got my first smart phone, an iPhone 4S. I and my kids have had iPods now for 4 years. I've used them and find it easy to use over the years I've become familiar with it.
I was looking for an iPod to replace the old one for myself and recently had my phone service expire with option to upgrade phones at huge discounts. I thought I'd go for a single device that had both in one. A big decision maker for me was being familiar with the layout from using the iPod. No learning curve.
By Christmas it was under the tree and I must say as my first smart phone it's awesome. In the process of doing my homework I convicned my fathe in-lawr and mother in-law to buy two more for themselves. We're three of those Christmas purchases to help boost sales
iPods and iPhones are the best portable media devices in my opinion. Everything from iTunes, movies, internet, email, portable camera-movie, location services, keeping schedules for appointments, storing/editing pics, alarrms, sync options to the cloud, using phone functionality are all very well done. Siri assistance is great to boot. Apples iOS is a very solid build. Apple definetly did thier iOS right.
The dual processor really makes a difference from what I've seen in the 4S version. The speed of which it operates is very fast when I've compared it to other iPhones I've seen. Kudos to Apple in this market. I'm more than completely satisfied with my iPhone 4S and I can't see why I'd change?. thumb.gif
Please note, I've not tried Androids smartphone and only giving my thoughts on what I've experienced with current smart phone. Just commenting on the news of this topic not trying to join the debate. I don't concern myself with sales or the competition, personally I don't care and until a few months ago when I started looking into it didn't know a dang thing. I can see how Apple sales have been strong as of late.

Maybe you should before making a statement like "iPods and iPhones are the best portable media devices in my opinion"...

I love how you guys make it seem that Android is overly-complex and highly unstable. ICS may change your mind about that.
