Both on exactly the same plan, yet the iPhone is made out of a much more expensive material (plastic (specifically PVC which is what it's made out of is $0.04 per pound) being $88.16/metric ton whereas aluminium ($0.47 per pound) is is $1035.88/metric ton) is cheaper and in real world usage there isn't really any difference between the two other than the OS it runs and screen size with is annoying to use everyday if you have human hands.

They're all just about the same when it comes to contracts. One reason I don't get why people bother bringing up prices. The top phones in each category are normally about $200 on contract here + plan, whereas last gen models are dirt cheap if not free on contract.

Off contract... oh em gee the iphone is $10 more expensive, god save us sozo.gif

And yet I'm glad this broke free of that, because I haven't looked at that thread since just after it was created.

Should be the way it is. We never needed to have the entire news reel filled with mobile lawsuit threads like it was getting to be. If the thread as a whole ( and topics ) got less attention then by all means that sounds great to me, less crap to have to put up with around the rest of the news section.

Pepsi or Coke, ATnT or Verizon, Apple or Samsung.

Guess there was no point in trying to argue with the American way.
