Re: Ahh the clueless iPhone consumer

said by Steve Mehs:

The iPhone is not a real smartphone. It's a trendy toy for 13 year old girls and for the technological challenged .

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.)

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

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.

A fool thinks they know everything.

A wise person knows enough to know they couldn't possibly know everything.

There are zealots for every OS, like every religion. They do not represent the majority of users for either.

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.
