i had both.. apple and the bot. the iphone was not beatable but times changed.
actually i got a LG P880. its a 1.5ghz quadcore / tegra3 / 1gig ram /16gb intern mem.
/ up to 64gb supported thru microSD / TRUE HD IPS 4.7” 1280 x 720 Pixel
the bot is version 4.0.3 / 8mp FullHD Video Cam / gps / bla bla
i tried every stupid possible stuff the last hours, it didnt get slow down and also didnt stutter.
the only thing is that the camera needs more light when its dark. it still makes good pictures
but it could be better.
ok this phone is not for everyone but this is just an example. if you know what your needs are you can
determine it by the hardware(!) and OS. but typically the hardware decides whats happening so you cannot
tell this is better or that one.
apple is brilliant, as some droid phones are, like the upcomming s4, lg/samsung models like mine and upwards.
hope u guys understand meh (:
Every phone is going to be different for different people. My iphone4 has no slowdown that I have ever noticed, but that is beside the point. Most people choose an iphone when they want something simple that is going to do the most day to day tasks in the easiest and most efficient way possible, this does not mean that they are dumb or do not understand hardware, it's just that it's a freaking mobile device and should be made to be simple. For example, if I am at home i use my pc, if I'm in my car or out and about I use my phone. Switching songs while driving should be an easy and intuitive task with very little work involved, I feel that the iphone accomplishes this. I have not used an android, so I won't make a judgement against it. Although I do remember before I bought my iphone that i read a review comparing the two. The review stated that both phones accomplished the same task, but the iphone seemed to do it in less steps and that the steps were also usually less complicated. The iphone is a very simple easy to use device, you can't argue that. And while the droid phones offer up tons of ways to customize your phone, if you spend that much time on your phone maybe you need to consider getting something more along the lines of a tablet or ultrabook. I remember my buddy bragging about how his droid was powerful enough to play SNES games on his phone, pfft just because you can doesnt always mean you should, I mean I COULD go offroading in my Honda Civic. Anyhowm different strokes for different folks, what some love others will not. To each their own I say, and I am thankful that the phones keep other in competition, otherwise we know what would happen with crappy monopolies.
