I didn't say that, I just said they remind me of dumphone users who are afraid of smartphones.

Sure some others might just like I had issues with our Android phones.
But again I'm not posting in an android thread trying to convince everybody else that ios is better. I mean I've yet to see an android thread that hasn't had some ios users crapping on it. ios users are really insecure about their phones.

Even better is you don't even have to have your phone to make changes to it either, you can just use a web browser to do anything from downloading music to your phone, installing apps to your phone, sending bookmarks to your phone, sending texts, checking your voicemail...I could go on and on.
Yea itunes is kind of lame having to use it but it isn't a deal breaker for me.

I don't even have any music on my phone. Why would I want to use a web browser to install apps to the phone? Just do it on the phone. I bought a phone to text but yea I can go on Sprint's site and text my wife if I forgot to bring the phone to work or I can just email her and she can email me back. I don't want to send bookmarks to my phone. Why would I want to check my voicemail via a web browser instead of the phone? I'm not that important, nobody ever calls me, we text.

I'm not trying to convince everyone ios is better. It is better to me and unless Mike says I can't post my opinion in here then you're just going to have to live with it.
Don't forget you crapped in an iphone thread... even though you said you never have and were proven wrong. You must really be insecure about your phone.

Stop whining, you troll all the time, so it should be right up your alley.

Well using a web browser on a PC is a lot easier than using a web browser on a phone. The same applies to using an app browser. Often times when I'm looking for a particular app, I'll read more in depth reviews on other websites, and switch back to the tab with the app on google's website. No need to then go look it up on the phone. Makes it easier that way.

Why? If you have websites that you frequent, it's easier to just send them from your desktop to your phone rather than keying in the URL by touch.

Well when you get a lot of voicemails, it's easier to manage them using a mouse and keyboard rather than touch.

I'm not saying you can't post your opinion, it's just that when you try to convince everybody else that yours is better, all of your points (other than "it has polish") are shot down, then you counter with "well it's better to me..." .... you get the picture

But I thought you had such a huge screen compared to us lowly iphone users, yet you can't use the app store on it? Damn, when I had an Android phone even I was able to do that. You need to practice.

Not interested in that at all. I rarely surf the web on my phone, like you said in your first post, a computer is easier to use for that so I use my computer.

I don't get a lot of voicemails, in fact I haven't got one yet.

I never said you can't, just that when you're hunting for apps and you want more opinions than what you just find in the mini reviews it's easier to poke around on a PC.

But when you do surf on the phone it's easier to do so with your bookmarks ready.

I like how when android does something iphone doesn't, iphone users are always like "I don't use that feature"

How about quickly turning wifi or 4g on/off from your homescreen without having to go deeply into menus? Apple intentionally killed an app that provided that functionality. Guess you iphone users wouldn't care since you don't get 4g

Since when was I whining? One trait of being a good troll is being able to shut down other trolls. My comments did a pretty good job of that

Actually I'm still posting so you didn't shut me down.
You started whining about me and others posting in this thread, yet when you tried to troll that iphone thread (which you lied about earlier and said you never have) no one got all butt hurt with you. Troll fail.

Didn't I? How come you and the other ios guys haven't done anything to show how your ios is superior in the last few pages? All I've seen from you guys is "I don't need that feature, but mine has polish"

In case you didn't notice, those videos debunked the polish as well, mainly by showing how ios apps are so inconsistent in operation compared to android.

I already have showed why I think ios is better in my opinion, you just don't want to listen. Your problem not mine.

Like I said before (and you didn't listen again) you can read internets to me all day but in my experience our iphones are much better than the Android phones we had. No buggy behavior with our iphones, and smooth operating.

All I've heard from you is ios users are basically dumb because they don't want features that you want, and you read on the internets that Android was better.
Neither one is exactly right or wrong. It is up to the individual. I as an individual think ios is better, you think Android is and that's fine. Just don't come up with lame excuses like you have been and you may be taken seriously... oh yea and how about actually using both to get an opinion instead of just reading the internets.
