>>learn to read first , i included developers in my comment , dont be careless and read at fast phases.
Here :
Android is only open to carriers , OEMs and developers but not to consumers.

Do you want to know , the example of true open source ? Its wikipedia , remember that google is just a company not an organization , its an ad company they know how to take all information from devices.


"Why should i add tablets when the purpose of discussion is about phones"
>>android posts only shipping volumes but apple actually posts "sold products" stats.
So even if u add all those , they are just shipped volme but not sold volume , if those are really sold , you wouldn't find 65% for iOS and 20% for android in "active browser usage volume" , developers wont be prefering iOS over android too if thats really a case.

"Again a misleading reply, my statement is very clear. Honeslty, its you who started the comparision of companies"
>>if u add all those companies , they wouldnt have smartphone at justhigh end , most of them are low end junk , only phones which really sell well are galaxy and iphones thats why apple takes up nearly 60% profits and add samsung , they together get more than 80% profits , most of devices shipping with android still in gingerbread or froyo , most of them incompatible to get upgraded to ICS (i.e last years OS) which means most of their configurations and gpu's and below average.If u want to compare OS wise , iOS still hold number one position , if u want to take phone side , compare iPhone to real competitors or equal capacity ones but not combining all those low end phones and showing 50% shipping volume instead of sold volume.

"- I'd agree, android is foer people who wish to get more out of their phone than to who prefer to let the oem decide what is best for you. seems that more geeks are increasing according to neilson survey"
>>I am really doubting if you are really reading posts , i mentioned entertainment users too because u posted links about galaxy tab used in aeroplanes , geeks constitute very less , if thats the case , websites like gsmarena would be in top of websites than sites like facebook or fashion centric websites.

"Phone feature to 'Reject call with sms'"
>>Previously voice mail was available or u can do conference incase u need another to join , thereare areas where iOS is lagging but those areas are not really not related "functionality"


Apple nailed OS X and iOS framework from day 0 , each of them look same from before , if u know apple from past , their website layout is also exactly same from 1987 onwards , another good example is windows (*cough*) which had start button , bottom tool bar and same basic layout with three buttons at corner to close , minimize and x button because microsoft nailed it , did anyone had problems with windows ? Except those geeks who install junk and themes , making chaos , saying open source bla bla ,but most people still use windows , Compare android , google still cannot define android's design , so they keep changing until they get one finally , they keep testing new designs and face issues with fragmentation.

If customization is in android DNA , how come samsung will remove my warranty if i brick my device/install our own ROM ? It isn't in google DNA either , they just void warranty just like apple if u try to use anything other than their own respective software.
Android is only open to carriers , OEMs and developers but not to consumers.
That exapandibility is a joke , it is same as jailbreaking which involves customization

- I reckon i am in discussion with an intellectual who has knowledge about Smartphones (irrespective of the os /brand). Please dont prove me wrong with statements like above.
If Android is open to carriers and OEM alone, who is CyanogenTeam, team AOKP, ASOP? Have you heard about them and their work?
OEMs void warranty because they are not resposible for any damage caused if you tweak the software. is that so hard for you to understand.

>> why only iphone ? Add ipod touches and iPads, then we see android slipped to second position.Consumer reports , we all know which customers are highly satisified , i.e iOS.

Why should i add tablets when the purpose of discussion is about phones. but if you insist i must add all the innumerable tabs of android from every nameless manufacturer.

>>You are comparing phones only , then you dont add other devices which run same iOS , now you add all 15 companies and compare it to one single company :) , still not big difference in share between two OS.
- Again a misleading reply, my statement is very clear. Honeslty, its you who started the comparision of companies.
+ compared to nokia maps , google maps are a joke.
- but tot tom is such a waste than Google. and apple picked it up.

Please, first focus on the basic Phone feature to 'Reject call with sms' and then you can comment about os optimisation.

Maybe android , is for geeks and entertainment users who keep on spending more time on customization than spending time on actually using the device

"You said about all 256 MB ram"
>>read it : yes thats right , they are going to use 256MB RAM iPad as of december 2011.
http://9to5mac.com/2011/12/13/...ting-friday/

Can you tell me where android is used professionally ? Windows is always professional , no comparison between windows and android.

Maybe android , is for geeks and entertainment users who keep on spending more time on customization than spending time on actually using the device , if iOS is inferior , i wouldnt expect lot of enterprise sectors and government sectors using it :)

"More importantly, why does an iPh 4S sells for £490 off contract and a similar config GS2 sells for £400. Why the hefty price?"
>>oh , here is your main problem , comparing hardware now , i asked a question long back and still no answer , tell me a single app which runs native on galaxy s2 or atleast takes advantage of its hardware ? Can it run Heavy apps like garageband ? Or can it run games like dead trigger with full effects of tegra 3 ? Nope , it cant because no optimized software is made for it specifically while 4S has lots of accessories , optimized apps and gets updates longer.

No facebook integration till date (yea, i heard its in iOS6). but what we are talking is till date.
Sahring abilities over a bluetooth - never. i know your point of wifi. but let me ask you, why have they ignored it all these years? Certainly the era of iPhone1, 3/3Gs never had the concept of wifi sharing. How difficult would it have been to the users to accomplish a simple task to sharing a file whilst every feature phone out there is able to do.

You can find everyone in xda once 6 months pass after buying device since updates roll out after one year delay or no updates.Windows Phone no updates at all.(exempting nexus line from this)

Thats the same thing people like you said to apple when they did number of things.
They removed floppy disc back then , which none of manufacturers dared and also adopted USB on large scale which none of manufacturers encouraged , then we know about flash and now DVD drives in laptops ,companies who once called "names" now trying so hard to copy macbook air and make ultrabooks , now today they are trying hard to make a device like iPad where everyone called it big ipod touch and said honeycomb bla bla , now google with ICS said that they need common platform for both tablets and phones instead of separate ones like honeycomb and gingerbread(common platform is Apple's way which many referred ipod touch and ipad as same OS lmao)
Now latest u saw galaxy s3 features of sharing which requires Wi-fi ONLY.

You can rant on it but tell me a single thing which is useless in apple's way ? now no need itunes also from iOS 5 unless you want to install pirated content on phone.
Want a song ? download from iTunes........Want a song ? download from playstore (same answer given by google , when they launched nexus tablet but never mentioned about bluetooth sharing and they didn't say anything about sd-slot , even HTC and Sony ditched SD cards on their latest phones , if u look at nexus event also , everything done on Wifi and NFC but not bluetooth or SD-card)

In short an iPhone user is forced to use things in Apple's way just because Apple is "InCAPABLE" of Executing the basic features.
Sorry to say, i find it ridiculous to use and extrenal App to accomplish the minimal task at hand. which any entry level smartphone..err even feature phones are doing from 2004 and earlier.

Why should i need a data connection to share a bunch of pics/or a few music tracks. Try to be realisitc dude.

Fyi, pc virus has no effect on mobiles. and what was the last disastrous virus which hit android phones by bluetooth transfers? can you name them?

Definitely i have changed attitude, but not the Apple's Way.

And secondly, Adobe hasn't given up flash on phones because it's moving on. They did only because Apple wouldn't listen to them and allow flash for iOS.

So u exchange everything with "some buddies next to u" who have smartphone without data connection ........ a joke.
And allow all the virus and files transferred from "his" phone (which apparently came from some other phone or PC) and that goes into ur phone (even windows PC block content unless u unblock it in properties), Right.

Only scenario i can find this situation to be real , is if person is over-spending his earnings to show-off his shiny phone or a young kid/teenager who cant spend too much on data connection since he has to keep up in other aspects.

There is an article in blog about samsung ads how they share things , most of them needs "Internet" to work or data connection.All require Wi-fi connectivity.

You have to change your attitude with time :) , thats what companies like adobe and others are realizing to "move on".

If u want to share the data , dont u have another iPhone friend and his itunes library ? :P since the situation is "we dont have a computer".

Lets say he has an android , cant he just install itunes and help his friend with content ? , btw he cant share apps since different OS , or if situation is reverse , Google allows iTunes content to transfer to android right from froyo onwards which is like 2 years back at I/O.

There are tonnes of apps like bump which allow that , and also i right now i have like 3 apps which allow transfer through wifi.If u dont have data connection and computer , whats the point of buying a smartphone ?

Why have you to be judgemental about someone's financial status? I fail to understand , is it defined by iPhone's disclaimer that one hsould own a PC/MAC as pre-requisite to buy an iPhone?

and i should be investing additional $300 atleast on a laptop so that i can sync iphone with data. absolutely foolish

You have to Jailbreak the iPhone and Void the warranty for a Bluetooth Transfer. doesnt it sound lame?

and you call it a SmartPhone! huh (No provocation intended, but i feel its really silly)
