Just a thing i was thinking about,it seems there are a lot of people that just seem to hate Android and just as many who hate Apple on these forums nowadays?...just asking the question why???....
Iv used both Android and Apple products,just the vibe you get from some people on here is just hatred?..for example if android bring out a phone ...say like the Galaxy Nexus,is seems to slagged right off on here,yet apple bring out the 4S and its the best thing since sliced bread,...ok i know this is a Apple forum but doesn't anybody appreciate a good product when they see it???...
Ok, i know its only opinions but I'm sure that most people on here were hoping and wishing for a re-design of the iPhone and were probably disappointed with just the upgrade,i just wish people would admit that rather than say "oh the 4S is just perfect", when in reality they were the ones saying 4" screen this and 4" screen that....same as android the so called perfect ICS galaxy nexus has faults,same as the iPhone,but you just don't see the same slagging off of competitors phones as you see on here....this forum has gone from being a great Apple Rumour site, like the days of "will they bring out a intel chip for the iMacs instead of motorola chips"....to a complete load of fanboys who will buy absolutely anything with a apple logo on and say its the best ever ??....just one thing to remember apple fanboys....there was a certain fruit called a APPLE many millions of years before the company.......

RANT OVER...;)

I have and love both.

Samsung galaxy s2 and an iPad.

Nothing wrong with either of them, they're just different. Android is more capable but less simple and not as neatly implemented, whereas iOS is very clean and better integrated, but not as powerful.

I think it's a combination of boredom and being spoiled.

It's very similar to cable news in that sense. The overflow of information has shortened our attention spans and we need constant updates on everything, so the networks overanalyze stories to fill up airtime.

Consumer tech is the same way. We're so used to Moore's law that we expect devices to constantly be improving by vast orders of magnitude. It's made us spoiled, and we end up debating over minor ****.

Then ended quite badly:

....to a complete load of fanboys who will buy absolutely anything with a apple logo on and say its the best ever ??....just one thing to remember apple fanboys....there was a certain fruit called a APPLE many millions of years before the company.......

This is a Mac site. Unfortunately it has been infiltrated by so many Pro-Android/Anti-Apple people those of us who come here to read Apple news are sick of it. The constant "iSheep" and "fanboy" insults are getting very old.

There is a forum for technology under community, but the Android posts are never put under there where it would be acceptable. Also the mods now allow Android posts in the iPhone forums. If users like Android, great. Go to an Android site to read about it. Those of us who like Apple come to Mac Rumors to read about Apple stuff.

I thought your post was going to be a decent one but then I realized it had ulterior motives.

This may be true for you, but a lot of people who are researching both platforms come here. Comparing Android and the iPhone is inevitable in these situations, and then both the Android/Apple loyalists come out and polarize what often starts out as a benign comparison.

Way to take that out of context. You sort of need to read and quote most of the post to get the point of it, not just that small segment.

The thing is though the comparisons IMO should be kept in the community thread since there is a specific section for it, that way those who aren't looking for alternate OS information aren't bombarded with threads like "Why I'm getting Android over iPhone" and other sympathy-type threads.
I think it would keep a lot of the trolling down.

Another possible solution is simply sticky an Android to iOS comparison thread that can be updated with each new major phone.

That still doesn't change the fact that this is a site for Apple news and rumors of Apple products. If you want to get the unbiased comparison of both there are numerous sites out there for the choosing that will give you a better unbiased comparison of both. Leave this site to Apple products and it's users. Android users can go to Android sites to get the latest news. Most posts are trolling. Simple as that.

Howardforums, phonearena, Gsmarena, etc. many many more for the choosing. That is like checking for sliced turkey in the closed to make a sandwich instead of the fridge.

I hate both of them equally.

+1. There is nothing to love about them both. Wp7 goes the same way.

I mean look at OS X. Less software choices but also less restricted compared to iOS. I can use it any way i like. Hell i can run windows if i like. Apple doesn't play big brother there.

Similarly look at Win 7. Many cheap quality and high quality choices around but software (i.e. "apps") runs fine as long as it is windows, and win 7 runs great even on older hardware without much issue. Something android is catching up to lately.

(yeah i think android should be compared to linux but in terms of hardware choices etc and apps availability it seems a good idea to compare to win 7, though being open source compared to windows)

I just use which seems to serve me better for the moment. None of them has satisfied me in a way symbian used to in the good old days :P. Too bad it never evolved. Thanks Nokia.

----------

I have a solution. Get rid of them and be happy. :rolleyes:

But the issue is you get used to some of the things you do on them i,e, social, news, music, videos, time pass games, calendar and appointments, documents, blah blah blah. Easy to get spoiled with that mobility.

It is much easier for companies to solve the gripes we have but then how else will they keep us chained to their devices? So you are stuck using android or iOS in their current very slowly evolving forms :P

I own both and like both. I think iOS is more user friendly while Android is more user control friendly.

But I like Windows Phone and webOS over both of them.

I just got my Focus unlocked today and couldn't be anymore happier. The Metro UI is both fun to use and look at. Like a wall of my friends being viewed with a Times Square/Las Vegas personality. I love the different photos it shows in the photo live tile and within the app's background. And I think it has more potential to be even better. Gotten so many stares with my WP in ONE week than any other OS I've ever had in three years. I know some will never like it and that is fine. Not as customizable as Android where it lacks even putting a battery meter on top of the header or inability to change for a better keyboard. Doesn't have the apps like iOS either. I say enjoy whatever you want to like, but since owning all three platforms, I happen to like WP the best. Going back to iOS and Android bores me to tears. I like very few things from Microsoft. Apple makes better products and Google has better services. But when it comes to intuitive mobile OS, I think Microsoft has got them both beat even it doesn't always show in sales. A pleasant surprise with WP.

I like both. I wouldn't say that either Android or iOS is better than the other, but I detest Windows Mobile.

One of the things I hate about WM is something as basic as the language settings. Just because I bought the phone in Norway, it doesn't mean that I really want the OS to be all in Norwegian (I prefer English) - and the EULA forbids me to install another edition with the language that I want, WTF is that? Sluggishness caused by kernel bugs and poor process-handling comes in addition to this. I really hate WM, but it's probably useful for some people, though.

im not trolling or whatever you call it?...i don't hate either apple or android,i do appreciate technology though, and at the moment apple do make the best computers, and tablets,but phones no...there is a lot better phones on the market now to compete with the iPhone, just take the nokia 800 lumia, not bad for a first windows phone from Nokia, the nexus from google, etc etc, that the phone market, yet in the tablet market android, blackberry etc seem to be struggling, if microsoft brought out a tablet the same size as the iPad running true windows, then that would be the one to have, same as the iPad with OSX would be, which i don't think is to far away....as, at the moment tablets are just massive phones running phone operating systems...

Dec 3, 2011, 05:47 AM
I would suggest the blind devotion to any product (iOS, Android, whatever) represents a fear that to appreciate a product other than one's own diminishes their product, and diminishes their sense of judgement at having made their choice. It seems a form of insecurity - "I must feel mine is the best. For mine to be the best, yours must be crap."

It is a form of schadenfreude - it is not enough that I do well, you must fail miserably for me to be happy. Not to get too big about it, but this sad attitude is reflected in more important issues - religion, nationalism, racism - everything that reinforces "us vs. them".

I never understood the devotion factor either if a product comes out and it looks interesting and u hear enough good things about it why not buy it and try it out a phone only has a two yr contract and most times u can upgrade early so what difference does it make I currently have a droid x never gave me a bit of trouble is it buggy absolutely but never had to take it back to store etc last night I ordered a 4s should get by tues going to try out iPhone for awhile doesn't mean I'll never go back to android

The problem isn't with iOS or Android being better/worse
The problem isn't whether fanboys or fandroids are worse than each other

The problem is when anybody feels their particular point of view is the only one that is relevant and makes sense and all other views are irrelevant and nonsense

That malady afflicts supporters of both sides

I think I have said this before on this site.

From my perspective, the Android 'fan-boy' phenomenon has been a direct response to Apple iFanaticism.

Macheads have existed since the 80's. Even in the midst of Apple's worst years (late 90's) I remember seeing Apple window decals at techy schools.

The iPod came out and even though it was wildly successful, to the rest of us non-owners it was just one among many popular electronic products with a large following.

When the iPhone came along something changed. Joe sixpack and Jane Doe iPhone owner became (in my eyes), condescending elitists. Smug with their superior position afforded them by their consumption of technology. This, despite the fact that Joe and Jane did not really know much about technology at all.

Macheads have always been compared to cult members. I always thought it was hyperbole early on... but from the person looking in, it is hard to NOT compare people's fervor for having the exact same device as millions of others and deriving a sense of individual worth from it.

Android is the blow-back from Apple's reality distortion field. There are plenty of people who never bought into the iHype and find it entertaining to watch iOS's software set, market share, and hardware steadily fall behind. Not because they dislike Apple, but because they dislike the effect Apple has on their enthusiasts.

To me. Steve Jobs was a smug jerk, and his fan base reflects that characteristic. If you dig a little deeper, I think that the recent problems with Android fan boys on this site isn't with Day-1-Android fans. My guess is that they are the same jerkwad people who originally loved iPhones and just switched platforms.

Dunno.

For some strange reason, I think Apple brings out a real hatred in some people - and it's as non-sensical as the hatred that republicans have for democrats. Or maybe I should be comparing tea partiers to democrats for the full effect.

It's really bizarre given Apple has represented the anti-establishment (the establishment starting off as Microsoft and then transitioning to cell phone manufacturers).

Even back in the non-mainstream Apple days, the hatred was there - and it was and continues to be hatred. It's not that MS users said, well Apple is ok but their computers can't run the programs I need - they hated Apple for reasons that were never valid reasons, but more emotionally driven.

Maybe it's just fear of thinking differently? I grew up taking punch-card computer classes in college and participated first hand in the implementation of the first mainframe computer system at my university - and at the same time was wowed by the all-in-one Macintosh that my roommate was using to write his book. The IT guys laughed at it when he would bring it into the UC yet I thought that the natural GUI was ages ahead of the "real" computers the school was implementing. The idea of what you see on screen is what you get when you printed the work was so freaking obvious - it made me hate typing documents on the school system as it was green text on a black screen - not formatted to look like anything but lines of text.

I asked the computer guys how I would know whether what I was typing would look right, print right and they said it was easy. You just had to set the parameters correctly and it would print out the way you wanted. Of course we're not talking about setting margins as we know today, but a highly complex set of parameters that made getting the right output a trial and error method that, at least as far as I was concerned, used copious amounts of paper as I tried to tweak the settings to get a simple document to look right.

Since then, I've worked on my fare share of pc's and owned a series of Macs starting with the first PowerPC desktop they offered. I prefer Apple's products because they, for the most part, make 'using' the computer/phone/tablet one of the most important aspects of their products. I never understood why MS created a system on a system and that you had to deal with the underlying system every time you wanted to do very basic things such as writing a document or spreadsheet. Apple hid their underlying operating system from people because they realized a great many people didn't know or want to have to know how to run a DOS-like base system.

Fast forward to today and you have what seems to be the same battle going on - with MS being replaced by Google and their Android system. What I hear from many Android fans is that it's better because they can tweak it - ala playing around with the DOS-like underlying system, just like MS let you do with Windows. If that is what you want to do - great, go for it. I don't want to "tweak" my phone so that it can do the things either I think it should do or that I think it should have done from the factory.

I think I have said this before on this site.

Dunno.

I'm sure you are correct that there are some people who buy Apple products simply to be what they think are elite in some way, but I'm pretty sure that this represents a minority position. I would argue that Apple still represents the "think different" population, but it's true that as more of the population uses Apple products, the more varied the population is. Think about it, young kids like using iPods and iPads and iPhones, right? Is it because they want to be elitist or is it because they like playing games on it? Teenagers like iProducts too - is it because they want to be considered the elite or it because they like texting, FB'ing, listening to music and watching movies on them?

I think, as I've noted previously, that it's more about the ease of use than anything else that is driving such wide acceptance and use of Apple products. I'm paraphrasing here but, your idea that Apple fans are all jerks who like Apple because they want to be better than everyone else or at least look like they're better than everyone else is just pure crap.

Once more into the breach...

There is a simple, straightforward way to reduce tensions between fanboys and fandroids. This solution has been suggested over and over again, and in user polls treated as the best option for enabling MR users to compare iOS/iPhones to other products without causing strife with those who are uninterested. And the solution is... have a separate, delineated forum explicitly for comparing Apple products to products from other companies.

@OP: The reason I have suggested this until I am blue in the face is that I suspect some of the 'trolls' who favour non-Apple products are actually employed by advertising companies, and I don't come here to read incompetent advertising. Moreover, as somebody said above, some of the insults from genuine trolls about 'fanboys' get old real quick. Having used Mac's in various PC-dominated environments since the 1980's, I can tell you many people in the IT business have invested their careers in non-Apple products and will go to great lengths to protect that investment by constantly belittling Apple and its customers. The latest Samsung adverts are a case in point. I come to MR to get away from that kind of abusive nonsense.

This has nothing to do with the products and everything to do with the people who hate. It's easier to blindly hate something or the opposite product, it gives them justification for what they own. It is a sign of immaturity not to be able to appreciate good qualities in both items though.

Have you asked the same question in the Android forums? I've seriously seen dozens of comparisons between Steve Jobs and Kim Jong Il, Osama Bin Ladin in the last hour. Every crazy and crass joke from the last year has been revived. Last week, I was reading some stuff on an Android site and the commenters were in deep discussion about how to assassinate Tim Cook. Apple fanboys are annoying because they won't shut up but Android fanboys are a whole different kind of crazy.

Neither operating systems are perfect, take the good features from one, add them to the best features from the other and one would have a great OS (IMHO). Trouble is that the good and the best from each system would be different for individual users.

The following quote is taken from the Forum Rules (http://guides.macrumors.com/Help:Forum_Rules) - which I was prompted to read after my post was deleted for 'name calling' :o

Goals of the Forums

The #1 goal is to discuss Apple news and rumors.

The rules and decisions are made to protect this goal over all else, first and foremost in the News and Article Discussion forums. Following closely are forum discussions about other aspects of Macs and for giving help to fellow users. Further down the list is the Community Discussion forum, and far at the bottom of the list is the Politics, Religion, Social Issues forum.

Perhaps this thread and any others pertaining to Android or other brand devices and OS' belong in the 'Community Discussion' forum then? Maybe threads such as this are better reported than participated in.

I have and love both.

Samsung galaxy s2 and an iPad.

Nothing wrong with either of them, they're just different. Android is more capable but less simple and not as neatly implemented, whereas iOS is very clean and better integrated, but not as powerful.Agree, I have both products and like each. Some people just drank to much the the Kool-Aid when you see their post on Droid/Apple boards ;)
