    Okay, so to change the topic, why did you choose your iPhone? Was it the design? The smaller screen?

    Please tell!

    Seems like you're already convinced yourself to buy an iPhone with your above quote ;)

    As for reasons why I personally go with the iPhone?
    - quality design materials
    - top notch battery life
    - apple customer service
    - guaranteed updates on time
    - os smoothness
    - biggest user base (so more developers, accessories, & easier to sell)
    - ability to use it one handed

    The Apple Ecosystem, which make most things work without fuss and talk to other Apple devices seamlessly, and the galaxy of Apps. I understand Droid Apps are fragmented due to the large number of Droids fravors.

    Then, although this bugs other people, I like how iTunes forces me to organize my music from the gekko.

    If I wa making commission from Apple I may give u a few more reasons but since they don't pay me, that's all I got.

    I mean mostly fragmentation like that your phone is new and amazing, 1 year later you don't get any android updates and the manufacturer just forgets about your phone. Sure, there's exceptions, like the galaxy phones, but they're not good enough

    No offense but don't ask us to convince you to buy a phone. Go to an Apple store and they'll convince you. Go and actually use the Apple products in that store and convince yourself.

    Isn't this mostly a personal preference, gut choice? You play with iOS, or Sense, or TouchWiz or whatever and think I want this. I want to use this every day.

    If you use iOS and feel comfortable with or impressed by it, buy an iPhone. You'll have access to the iTunes Store, the best app store in the world, fast and easy interconnectivity with other Apple products (if you own any), a beautiful device, the best customer service anywhere, guaranteed OS updates for 3-4 years, and it will all just ... work. ;) But if it's missing anything - you can jailbreak!

    Jailbreaking = rooting + custom rom.

    Yeah, and make sure to watch the movie Last Train Home while you're at it! You won't want to buy anything ever again after watching what they go through.

    Convince me

    Convince you ! Why should we do that, what is it for us if we convince you? If you cracked your HTC or even dropped your Galaxy, there will always be another Android phones you can easily switch to. There's no need to turn yourself from hater to lover. iOS community is so big that your input has no effect rather negatively or positively. The only winner or loser is yourself by disliking or loving Apple products. Try to convince yourself by yourself, so you will have no one to blame or praise from the outcome of your decision. good day

    It is the fastest smartphone on the market today. If you hate lag, you will want an iPhone 5. The closest smartphone that comes close to having zero lag.

    I love how people say jailbreaking is a "feature" of the iphone.

    Apple sure does a good job of supporting it.

    I've never done it myself; just making people aware of all the options! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Are you sure with the battery life? I think one of the reasons people bashed on iPhone is because of the battery life, isn't it? Of course, it depends on how you use it, but it isn't that good on battery life, IMO. Even without playing any games or watching video (just for texting) it sucks up battery pretty fast.

    If you used smartphones before Apple released one you would love Apple. I'm guessing you haven't used these devices that long.
