Yeah I've seen that guy too. Can't remember the exact name but I still remember he got a lot of "thanks" for that. And the sad thing is he's not the only one.

He's got a valid point. There are some hardcore iOS haters on XDA, etc.

Yes, and there were some hardcore WM haters on XDA, and there are hardcore Microsoft or Android haters here, so what?

There are but you can't judge a whole community by that. Similarly there are some hardcore Android haters on this site too but they hardly represent the majority.

I will admit that some people on sites like XDA, Engadget go overboard with their Apple hate, but these are just trolls. It's always been popular to hate Apple and with Android being a direct competitor to iOS, many trolls took the opportunity to spread their Apple hate.

However as an Android user, I don't associate myself with these people and I wish others wouldn't either.

Let it go guys. You refer to IOS and Droid as if they were people. They're only friggin' phones already, who cares? If you wish to hate something/one, pic lawyers, politicians and/or commercials. Now that's within reason!

That's the problem, some people here, both iFanBoys and FanDroids, actually think they're married to their phones. It be interesting to meet some of these hardcore phone lovers in real life.

After all if the internet trolls can show up here to bash Apple I think I should be entitled to voice my opinions as well.
Most people on this forum own iOS and Android devices, and are usually very reasonable, so I think you are referring to the wrong crowd. I think you are being over-sensitive.

Everyone should definitely own an Android and iOS phone and give both a good try and stick to what they like. Blind fanboys and narrow minded haters equally suck.

I think a lot of Android users have used iOS products before. But, I suspect many iFans have not really used or touch an Android device at all. That's why you will come across many iFans posts on Android are pure nonsense or misinformation.

I find the OS war entertaining, and I jump in here and then, but I don't really care what I use, or what you use. I use iOS now, but like to try something else - just for a change.

It's very nice of you to remove my entire posts. Look like nowadays when you talk bad things about Android you will be censored. At least do it fairly and punish other people as well.

There's a whole thread that I created to talk specifically about nexus 4 and android 4.2 complaints. Thread hasn't been pulled.

What could the difference be...
