I have been saying this for the last year..
In 10 years apple will be phased out completely and the FAR SUPERIOR ANDROID will be thriving and will be bending over backwards to not only keep blacj berry afloat and in business.. But make products that will eventually equal the professional quality and fun experience that users flock to

Why don't you try to contradict yourself a little more? Looking forward to your 1000th post btw.

And this is why apple users are idiots..
Apple markets to sheep
Few years ago everyone was clamoring for an iphone because it was a superior product to what was on the market
Now the tables have changed and we currently see what was it? 71% of phones are android.. Because android makes a far supperior product and they are still only in their infancy.
Iphones will only ever be iphones..
Androids are starting to branch out into things like the google glasses.. Or the omni arm band... Or the the body suits hat are still on the drawing board..

He only reason this pathetic argument is going on still is because apple user who stick with apple think they are providing a competing product to the quickly spiraling out of control (in an upward motion) industry known as technology
Apple is failing
Pc's are falling as well
Xbox is doing ok
Playstation is failing
Androids are thriving

And the only reason that is going to argue with that is that they are caught up in the one off.. Oh look at that! Thats cool! That must be hot when in reality the tunnel vision is blinding them to the tidal wave of power that companies come forward with

Well I have the first gen ZTE Blade.

I seriously don't understand why people waste money on a expensive phone since my phone got more than enough cpu to go around, with slightly tweaked settings the battery duration is insane and it has held toghether for 2 years now.

Running CM9 atm for those who care about that stuff.

The reason why Android has such a high market share is because of their low-end devices (which helps a great amount in countries(people in those countries) that aren't very rich or value splurging a high amount of money for a phone). Of course they are going to have a higher % because of their variety in devices. But that doesn't make them better, especially when talking in terms of which high-end devices are better or worse. Market share isn't everything, and I would imagine more people (at least where I live, Canada) carry an iPhone rather than a high-end Android handset.

I have used Apple products, I have seen the stats of Apple products and I've seen what the company Apple is like. Now like many other companies and brands Apple have and probably will change over time. But right now their products are overpriced and overrated compared to competitors. And they claimed that they had theoretically lost money because Samsung wouldn't let them dominate the smartphone market, basically why Apple sued Samsung. This has left me with a bad impression of Apple. That doesn't mean it's possible for them to change, but I doubt that will happen. Of course if Apple did change, then I would possibly change my opinion on it.

The price and specs of products are facts that can easily be verified. Sure, there are other unmeasurable things that could depend on what is the superior product (such as few viruses on Mac), so if there was enough of those things to convince me into thinking that Apple is better... Then I would think Apple is better. It's the same with other products. But what brand a product has does not make it better than a product of another brand, maybe you think so since you said Apple has the best phones?

i'm very careful to be consistent in my opinions (in my opinion)

Are you implying that you are never wrong? Or that if you were proved wrong, you would just deny it?

nah, the higher end ones are more popular than iPhones too because theyre pretty much superior in every way including price. The only reason to get an iPhone is to show off.

iPhone is probably not as good as the s3 and costs twice the price.

God I love my SIII. Wrapped up in a nice slick TPU case. I try to get everyone I see with an SIII to check out how their phone feels with my case on it.. so slick, so strong.

Gotta protect my baby. And that screen... it's gorgeous. So quick too... mmm.

Never have I ever been so happy with a phone. My last two smart phones were HTC and were nice out of the box, but two months later: utter shit.

True for some people, not for others. For example, I started with an iTouch. Nothing really like it at the time. I found it so useful that I decided to get an iPhone. I started with the iPhone 3G. There wasn't anything else on the market like it. All the Android phones were shit until the past 2 years. From the iPhone 3G I went to the 4, then the 5. At this point the Android phones have caught up, or passed the iPhone, in some ways. However, if you've had an iPhone since the early models and they do what you need there isn't much reason to switch. I would lose a ton of apps, etc. For me my iPhones have been very reliable devices for many years now.

Also just about everyone my wife and I know have iPhones, so we can text for free, Facetime, etc.

I don't know of a single feature on an Android phone that I wish I had on my iPhone. Maybe someone could point out some cool Android only features that would make someone want to ditch an iPhone.

Who even knows what the name of the new model Samsung, Android, or Windows phone is, they're all rubbish knock offs!

E.G.

You've just bought a new Samsung galaxy s 3.0 turbo, you tell a friend. He's like uh cool, and you go on explaining to him what it is.

Everyone knows what an iphone is and how great of a product it is.

On another note, who here knows a person who has owned an Android, Samsung, or Windows phone for two years and it still works fine and he/she loves it? No one, those phones aren't built to last two years or more.

I use a shitty 30 dollar Tracfone. I have an iPod Touch, and since an iPhone is very similar to the iPod Touch, I have to say that. I have never used an Android device before.

Very reasonable thinking, dude.
