And again, as stated many, many times, nobody is stopping anyone here from posting news about any other smartphone or manufacturer. If you have time to point out how "bias" OCN is with who gets the bad news posting, and point to sources of other phones/manus having problems, you can simply click the "Start a New Thread" Button and post away. I'm sure many will thank you for pointing to other issues to be wary of, whereas when you simply complain in this thread because Apple is getting bashed and why not X, Y, Z, you simply come off as the type of fan your accusing others of being, and almost fuelling them further. Be constructive rather than just complain I guess is what I'm saying simply...
These are legit issues and legit news posts. Much more legit than some lawsuits I've seen (sorry, I couldn't help myself on that one... I know, a bit cheap maybe?) Other issues are just as legit and can have their own thread too, if someone cares enough to make one...
Honestly I'm done with this. You guys are clearly not going to see things in any other light. Be constructive? Take a look around these threads. Apple sucks. Yeah that's what you get for paying for something made by Apple. I could probably fill a whole page with posts like that throughout this and other threads. Why do I bring it up for this scenario? Because you guys are biased. Your are being hypocritical in a textbook fashion. When the company you guys hate the most (that brought about your new smartphones you know and love) trips up, you're on it like rabid sharks. When the companies you praise have similar issues, nothing. You gave me a hundred excuses as to why. Oh it was before it was opened from the box. It wasn't from the sites we normally frequent (Engadget, Gizmodo, Techcrunch). What am I accusing people of? You guys simply want to see Apple burn for the sake of it burning. You wanted to see them burn at the iPod. You wanted to see them burn with the iPhone. And you wanted them to burn with the iPad. You guys are so quick to point out the flaws with Apple but don't realize without them you're MP3 players would have been garbage, your smartphones wouldn't exist, your tablets wouldn't exist, corning glass would never have come back. Yeah there would be variations that probably came up later on, but fact is Apple started the trends. Yeah there were some products out there before that had similar things (some tablets). But they never took off. And because they never did they would never have entered the mainstream and taken off. Actually I'd say they never would have taken off. Fact is when each of those products launched closed minded tech enthusiasts, blogs, and competitors almost immediately called them garbage and said they'd never take off. Or is it because they wanted to try to put a dent in Apple's rep by bad mouthing them at the time?
Quality issues that you guys complain about this is the one I laugh about the most. They push themselves as being higher quality. Really? They may call themselves the best phones out there (who doesnt) and what phone company doesn't laud their quality? HTC did it with the One series. The reason you remember Apple for it more is because you see them more in the spotlight and in ads. The reason you remember it more is because unlike most other manufacturers (bizarrely) they actually stick with one advertising campaign/theme instead of launching a whole bunch. Guys they make the designs. They don't do the assembly. The guys that are assembling are the same that assemble your dell products, sharp products, and many more. Plus they have to make enough to meet with the massive demand that comes with Apple products. Apple's had to actively invest in manufacturers multiple times to get them to meet the production they need to get their products to consumers, hell they had to help pay for Corning to get factories up and running to make the glass. Sorry if some come out bad, it does suck and if there's too many it is a problem. But you guys instead cry foul they can't keep QC to save their asses. If they don't produce enough to make sure that QC keeps up you start ripping on apple fans that wait in line because supply is so constrained. Then you go and rip on the guys who buy them on ebay for massive markups because they can afford to and don't have the time to wait in line. You're expecting some sort of super company clearly run by an omnipotent being that sees everything.
All of you say what you will. I'm willing to put money on the line that this turns out to not be a massive problem and was only due to some hiccups in the first batch.
