    Almost every android owner I know uses their phone for the exact same things as iPhone owners
    Instagram and twitter
    Phone calls.
    Nobody uses any of these "killer features" that android offers. I still have yet to see s-beam, tilt to zoom, s-shot or any other s-named item in action in person. So far only a whopping 2 people out of everyone I know has an S3.
    The iPhone owners just mind their business and so do the android owners. However it's the fans I see on the internet that really make the devices seem worse. The internet has a habit of making people think they are important. Android owners viciously attack iUsers over not having removable battery and storage, something most people don't use, and other superfluous things. iPhone owners attack fandroids over having the worse version of apps, fragmentation, phone design, etc... Why can't we just all get along?

    Because the iPhone screens are too damn small.

    To me it feels like iOS is more professional and more thought through. With the Android OS it feels like they just slapped it together and said on here you go. But that's just my opinion.

    lol it's the Internet what do you expect

    ask the average consumer (iOS or Android) and I bet they wouldn't be able to name half the features of their phone

    I don't give a poop what other people do with their own smartphones.

    I use my iPhone for sms text, email, reading (iBooks, Kindle, ComicX, Newstand), checkbook register, bank/credit card balances, package delivery status updates, weather, traffic, directions, forums & an occasional offensive twitter or FB update.

    I doubt anybody gave a poop about that list. So, now you can think about it before posting your opinion on what you assume other people are using their smartphones for.

    Btw.. My uncle uses his smartphone to watch porn at work. That wasn't on the op list.

    I didn't know I was going to stumble upon an Android argument when I clicked on this thread. Should've been warned or knew better.

    Not true.

    I saw two losers bang their SGS3's together (evidently to exchange Glee playlists...).

    I'm pretty sure it was an Apple commercial, since all it did was demonstrate how long the lines are for Apple products and how moronic the "features" are of the SGS3.

    Thank you for making me laugh!
    I'm with you- I really don't care what others use their phone for.
    And more directly on point to this thread (I think), the fact is you have a choice! Ultimately, that's the consumer's best friend!

    Plus us iPhone users have the Bump app for that kind of pointless crap :D

    Some products do seem to generate a huge (and utterly ridiculous) rivalry. I think key features that encourage this are:

    Product is a "want" rather than a "need"
    Product is regularly updated/replaced with new version
    Product is sufficiently expensive to not be an impulse purchase for most people (so expensive that it may often be the cause of some anxiety requiring post purchase rationalisation)
    Product is seen by some to have "luxury status" (and so potentially confers "status" on the purchaser)
    Product has just a handful of clearly defined market rivals
    Product has features/an ecosystem which discourages easy switching to rival systems

    Im sure there are others, but a product which ticks several of these boxes is likely to end up with fans who "support" it as if it is football club and feel obliged to bash its rivals. Another example would be Canon v Nikon cameras which also have stupidly partisan fans who can resist making out that the cameras of their rival have all sorts of failings which suggest anyone buying them must be an idiot. To an extent some Omega v Rolex owners fall into similar behaviour (although less so as in that case owners can switch easily, or buy both).

    The end result is an absolute case study in cognitive biases. To convince themselves of the correctness of their own purchase you see people not only ridiculing the "opposition", but also doing down previous iterations of their own favoured product (ie "I could never go back to the iPhone 4, it now seems so slow/squat/cheap looking" etc etc).

    It is fascinating to read.

    And Android is "Fresh"? Cmon son my Galaxy S3 has Pretty much the same exact layout as iOS besides one widget that I have... Everything else is apps on pages apps on pages theres not much of a difference at all.

    I see your banning from this site coming very soon. You joined on 3 Oct 12. You have started 18 threads, 2 of which were locked. Even though I suspect you most likely have been banned from this site, most likely many times before, I feel you should start working on your next user name as this one is wearing out fast.

    Why so harsh?

    While the OP might have created some bad/annoying threads I actually enjoy this one. It's asking a question about something that actually occurs.

    Not being harsh just looking at the record. 5 days with 2 closed threads. Nothing but more closed threads to come which will lead to an eventual booting for trolling. Maybe I'm wrong, we'll see.

    I use some of the special features of my gs3. Like the tilt to zoom is pretty cool, also being able to tell me phone to take a picture comes in handy when taking a picture of my newborn. I don't use all the features cuz some are pointless. But hopefully ill be able to get an iphone 5 and sell my gs3. I'll be able to share pics easier with my fam. I love android and iPhone they both are great at what they do. E.T comes out tomorrow on blu ray:D:p

    It's because even though people have devices that can do "shake to update" and "tilt to zoom" it's just simply stuff on a page and not stuff that's actually USED in day to day
