Well you guys pretend iphone is completely without its problems. If you want personal experience, how about this:

http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=171748

Or the iphone 4 with the infamous "you're holding it wrong" problem.

Or perhaps the proven fact that iOS crashes more.

At least with android when I have problems, I can always figure out why I am having a particular problem, iOS on the other hand hides the specifics.

I could go there too and say that none of my friends with android have any problems with their phones, which they don't that I know of, but it doesn't matter.

There is a difference between opinions and flat out false information.
Love how people misread me. Never said that ALL Android phones had issues, but rather everyone I knew that had Android phones hated them. I don't see an opinion of an Android owner is "flat out false information".

Again, I call it like I see it and from my personal experience (along with others), Android is not a good solution. End of story.

We've both spoke our opinions, let's agree to disagree.

Fair enough. We can play this card all day long but in the end, I'll go on what I've seen and experienced myself. I've never had a reception issue or dropped call, nor have I had an OS crash on my iPhone. I've had tons of issues with the Android OS and I prefer not to have it.

Opinion = shot down. KABOOM!

A simple "I don't like Android" would be enough. Instead of, "Android sucks and it sucks for all my friends and everyone with an Android device has to tinker with it to get it work right. WAAAAA"

I don't like IOS because it doesn't offer any of the features I regularly use.
