    It seems that on the default, the perception is always of an air superiority and blanket "Apple is greatest bla blah blah". AS opposed to Android fans going; "a lot of products are actually great, it really is hard to say which one is the "best" for everybody".

    Which so happens to be my main point of view.

    I just get defensive when ignorant people like to think something doesn't hold a candle to their beloved iDevice because they fell for the marketing.


    This goes for any type of fanboy of course.
    Change that bold text to "any device" and it fits every well.

    That's fair.

    Applies more so to Apple products though. Based on general populace.

    I would say it does. Might be anecdotal but but everyone I've ever encountered - be it they be a fleeting introduction, friend, family member, or acquaintance; thinks this. Based on encounters on the internet (even on here on PSU).

    Can I speak for everyone? No, of course not - because that would be nigh impossible.

    But all I'm saying is that there is an air of feeling "superior" to those that lean Apple.

    Maybe not you, maybe not other people, but I would go so far to say that that is truer to them than someone say owning most other brands.

    None of us can say ultimately either way - because we can't get these numbers. But I can speak on mine, and those around me's perceptions (whether it be in real life worldwide encounters or ion the internet).

    I am the oncoming storm.

    I see the same thing amongst people that just own a device. Some blackberry friends, android friends, and apply friends.

    Agreed.

    I'm not saying it's exclusive to one place - just that it occurs there more (based on perception, experience).

My iPhone 4 has the same usage as I am using the S3, yet the iPhone doesn't need to be charged for two days at least.

    The prices 2nd hand are determined by supply and demand.
    My brother recently got a One-X and he's having the exact same issue. My S2 has decent to good battery. Think he's regretting moving over from iPhone

    I wonder what will become of the rumor that Google will have a Nexus device from all major Android manufacturers. So far all we have is the Nexus 7 by Asus. I'd kill for a Nexus device co-developed with Motorola.

    6 days standby on today's battery technology is a bit far fetched. Considering that all these smartphones are running HD displays, powering a cellphone signal, dual/quad core processors and sometimes an NVIDIA gpu; wifi, bluetooth, GPS, videos, gaming, internet - $#@! I'm surprised it runs for 1 hour without switching off.

    I think we all need to get past the "glory" nostalgic days of the old phones, and get realistic with our expectations.

    Pretty much why im sticking with my old school Nokia, I dont really require those things in a phone I only use for texts, calls, facebook and the odd photo.

    Some of these Androids barely last a day with minimal use, I'd hate to get lost in the bush or trapped someplace with one of those phones.

    I believe there isn't a fixed date (yet) but most reports say mid October.

    You love the iOS on it?
    A little faster? It's 0 lag shutter. It's instant.

    Didn't see that face until I saw it in the quote. Were you being funny?

    I think he's alluding to the fact that the new Apple phone is comprised of old features from existing year old Android phones but like always, Apple is making it look like it's brand new $#@!.

    The S2, the HTS Sensation etc all have had these for a while.




    EDIT:
    Oh and 8MP cameras and LTE capabilities ahve been done already too.
    It's not the first time they've copied though. Which makes the whole lawsuit thing even More laughable.

    Gotcha. The iPhone 4s was released with 1080p recording ability. I know what ya mean though I guess. I just don't see the iPhone as competing against Android when they develop an iPhone. Seems like they engineer what they feel their customers wanted.

    I do disagreee with this. I think it's certainly influenced their process. Otherwise they wouldn't have gone in great lengths to stop Samsung; or that they wouldn't be adding these features in the first place.

    In the same way how Nike doesn't stop 'Noke' or Adidas doesn't try to stop 'Abidas' or whatever other million knock offs there are.

    Not saying Samsung is a knock off - but Apple thought with their patents, they can attempt to halt Samsung - because they perceived them, and the rest of Android to be a threat.

    In regards to what their customers want, how much of that is Apple customers seeing friends who have Samsung, Motorola, HTC, Sony phone with all these fancy features. Maybe not to the biggest degree, but certainly enough to influence.

    Though that's not to say that's the main focus of their design. Certainly not back in the day. Albeit more so in the last 2 years though.
