Why do Android users LITERALLY GET SO MAD when iPhone users talk about, and use/like Apple products such as iPhones. I mean, they literally get SO MAD when someone likes a iPhone over a Android device. Oh, and NOTHING makes them more livid as when a iPhone user goes to Android, only to go back to iPhone after a couple weeks, month, or whatever it is. There must be a ailment of sorts for this when someone doesn't like what they like. They LITERALLY GET furious at the thought that someone would like a iPhone over Android. This release of the new iPhone has made it even worse with the haters. They are going to any blog, video, and comment sections just to dog the iPhone. They are spending so much time to read all about something (they think) they hate. It's so interesting to me as to why??? Does anyone have a serious explanation?

Livid? :rolleyes: c'mon now...

Idk, guess the same reason some people on here label you a "troll" if you put android over iOS and/or actually like Samsung? There are fanboys on both sides of the fence. I still remember when Instagram was released on android and the iFanboys lost their damn minds. So of the comments were borderline racist. I like my iPhone 6 Plus but I still have a soft spot for android. That Note 4 is a sexy beast. Got to play with one at my job and its f'n awesome.

Actually I agree with OP.

I don't normally hang around android sites, but usually check sites like Engadget, Gizmodo etc (who are meant to be just tech sites) .... and this iOS vs Android thing have become truly religion!! I could barely read any comments on the articles of the new iPhone's. Full of hate and anger!! I mean WTF?? Not even football hooligans act like that.

Surely in this site you get lot of fanbois bashing Samsung but then IMO no where near that scale!!

Easy now, no reason to name call and get so upset. I don't have any issue with Android. I used to own a Samsung S5.

Lol Apple fans do the same thing when there's an Engadget article on Samsung. Like I've said before, some Apple fans act like Samsung murdered their mom or something

No clue. It definitely only seems to happen with Android users. Anytime a tech site posts an article about Apple, out come the Android fans that vehemently hate iPhones and go full rage mode about it. I don't see any iPhone user act or post this way.

Seems like Android fans are angry all of the time.

There are people who will fight too hard for what they believe. Just take it with a grain of salt or put yourself in head-nod mode until that post passes. It comes from all sides, I just listen to the productive ones and try to learn from the critical ones.

Easy tiger, do get so upset.
Uh, buddy, if anything you were the one raging in your OP and I was the one telling you to calm down :rolleyes:

CAPS LOCK SCREAMING
'livid'
'furious'
'hate'

Nice try at reversal defense though...

It's about even dude. Lol every time there's a Samsung article posted on this site...the majority of the comments (not all but majority) are people bashing Samsung and calling them the devil. Then you get the few who will defend Samsung only for them to be called a "troll" or (and this honestly makes me LOL) get accused of being paid by Samsung to infiltrate Macrumors ####

Point is you get annoying fanboys on both sides of the fence. For every angry biased android fanboy, you have an angry, biased, apple iFanboy

Yeah, there is a lot of truth to that. How are you enjoying your iPhone 6/Plus?

I have the 6 plus and I like it. Great screen, camera, and battery life. Best phone I've ever owned. Got a case for it and the phone feels even better in my hand. You got a 6 or 6+?

I don't necessarily think my friend gets mad, but every chance she can, she will throw in, but can your iPhone do that?

Or just say, iPhones aren't that great.

The one time i got her to keep quiet was when i was texting (iMessage) other people through my macbook pro. And when i told her ill be texting from my MBP when Yosemite releases, she asked me can android do that?

I don't know if android has the capability yet, nor do i really look into it, but she just said thats not fair. All i told her was that's just the start with why enjoy my apple products and is one of the many reasons i really like the apple ecosystem.

It all just depends how much you actually know about your device, and lots of android users or even iPhone users for that matters don't even know how to use their unique features. My girlfriend didn't even know how to set up iMessage on her mac until i showed her. And don't get me started on how so many samsung users i know don't know how to use their smart stay feature, or don't even use it.

It's not only Android vs Apple users where the hate gets thrown around. Since the new phones have dropped, owners of the 6 have been bashing owners of the 6 Plus, and vice-versa. It's beyond ridiculous.

Yeah, 6 Plus. I got it on launch day. I really like it. The Spigen case is nice too. Kinda waiting for the Hex Solo for the 6 Plus to come out.

Yeah, the whole Apple ecosystem is what I like the best. I have many Apple products, and enjoy them all...and the ecosystem makes them all that much better. This 6 Plus is so awesome. Really glad I chose it over the 6.

Good response.

So silly. My mature friends with Android devices never get upset when i get a new iPhone. Maybe because they are MATURE and have more important things in life such as families and jobs and they don't care about the type of phone I own. If you know people like that, either they need to grow up or you need to grow up and find new associates.

I've been contemplating posting something like this on multiple sites ever since the launch of the 6. The Android fanbase has become nothing short of toxic. They are incapable of believing that there is any valid reasoning behind buying anything Apple related and cannot be reasoned with.

Don't get so upset. I was just pointing out how so many people get upset when they read or hear talk about liking a iPhone.
