Re: Ahh the clueless iPhone consumer

The iPhone is not a real smartphone. It's a trendy toy for 13 year old girls and for the technological challenged . Let's see, MMS, app switching, multi tasking, copy/paste, real turn by turn nav, all things iOS lacked. Apple finally caught up, but now the iToy lacks DLNA support, NFC, the screen is still too small. Not to mention no expandable memory . But hey, the head phone jack is now ON THE BOTTOM! Talk about revolutionary!

And FYI - The web browser on iOS, Safari Mobile is an utter joke. It sucks. Dolphin HD and Chrome completely destroy Safari.

For the future of our nation, we must unite and vote out the terrorist known as Hussein Obama. Come November 6 2012 we must remove the socialist pig out of office and get our country back on the RIGHT track.

I'm not going to argue with someone suffering from a Reality Distortion Field, as it's clear you are unable to see what made and makes the iPhone great. (This does not mean that Android is bad. They aren't mutually exclusive in excellence.)

However, this is one area where you are completely wrong. Mobile Safari was and is far away superior in standards compliance, HTML5 support, and speed over the Android Browser.

Mobile Safari has always offered better standards support: »www.infoworld.com/d/html5/ios-5s···y-175371

And it's also faster. When Anand tested the iPhone 5, Safari beat every single ARM based Android phone in every test suite. Only a phone running an Intel Atom can keep up: »www.anandtech.com/show/6330/the-···eview/10

It wasn't until Chrome on Android came out that Google caught up to Apple. Chrome is a much better browser than the old Android Browser. But it took Google, what, 4 years to catch up to Apple with Chrome on Android?

You fail to address Dolphin HD. It's been out a long time and is excellent. Most stock browsers are crap modded by the manufacturer or carrier, but Android gives you choices, which is the biggest selling point of Android.

Dolphin HD may be excellent, but it uses the platform's native HTML rendering component rather than its own engine. This means that it handles Web content approximately the same way as the default browser: still worse than Safari Mobile. Again, it wasn't until Chrome that Google caught up to Apple, almost 4 years later.

Me: Why does this iPhone suck?(holds iPhone upside down)
Apple: You're holding it wrong!!!
Me: But but I just wanna listen to my music without mashing the headphone plug in my jacket pocket! Wtf?
Apple: That headphone jack looks sexy on the bottom. Just buy our custom iJacket with a specialized hole in the bottom of the pocket. It looks sexay!
Me: But where do I put my money and wallet?
Apple: Don't worry. You won't have any of that by the time you're done buying our proprietary iCrap! All you need is iToys
Me: (running away screaming) I want my Android ; ;
Apple: Sorry, no app for that

Lol just had to.
