Apple's been given a lot of criticism lately. To be honoust, I've had it with all this criticism. Not that I don't think it's valid (some is, some isn't), it's just that I've grown tired of people being so critical on the iPhone. I'm just not interested in it anymore, I just want to enjoy my phone and be happy with it, even though it's not perfect. That's why I decided to make a thread where we can praise our iPhone. Again, this is not a thread for moaning and critizing. If you feel the need to do so, please go to one of the many other threads. I'm sure you can start a great discussion there. So, after all these years, why do you still love your iPhone? Why do you think it's still by far the best smartphone out there? You can name whatever you like, you can name the usual suspects (ecosystem) or the small details that almost no one notices except you. I'll go first. - I love that fonts render more nicely in iOS than in Android - I love the edge-to-edge glass on the front, it's very clean, elegant. Almost no other phone has this 'purity' - I love that Apple's app icons are way more beautiful than Googles - I love the blue of the iMessage balloons, it's exactly the right color - I love the fact there's almost no input lag when scrolling (Android still has it, no matter what people say, it's there) - I love how snappy Safari feels (I'm not kidding ) - I love how elegant the lock screen notifications are - I love how the home screens on iOS look so colorful, crisp yet clean. It's not 'stale', it's elegant! - I love the weather widget, it's very informative and smartly hidden. (HTC Sense, I'm looking at you with your big ass weather clock which is very intrusive but does not give a lot of information at all) - I love how simple and intuitive Facetime is. I like it better than Skype. - I love turn-by-turn navigation on Apple Maps. A lot has been said about Apple Maps, but they really nailed it when it comes to turn-by-turn. - I love the camera on my iPhone 5. The photos are amazing and always very sharp. - I love how intuitive and functional the Music app is. I really have never seen anything alike on any mobile device. Not even close. - I love the layouts of each contact in the contacts app. It's really like a 'card', rather than a list view of some export from some database. - I love the layouts of the settings menu. It's nicely grouped and (again) elegant. Things are easy to find and it's not cluttered at all. - I love the mail app. It's fast, it's functional. I know there are alternatives, I've tried them, but they don't match the stock mail app. - I love the feeling that iCloud backups my phone every night. It makes me feel comfortable knowing that I'll never really lose anything.
