No it’s actually Android users, c’mon. Android owns like 85% of markets and most people are technically challenged so it means most android users are.

Unfortunately, those people are not ignorant at all.

JDK, 26 Jun 2020Yet most people don't.Most people are ignorant on how an OS, whether Android or iOS is not so secure by default.
Atleast on Android, one can take security in your own hands.
Most ppl don't do it coz they are uneducated on how better it is or whether they really need it or not.
Just because other people are ignorant doesn't mean I am ignorant as well.

Aha, I know why. You are just so mad about us IOS users that you call us "technically challenged" just to make yourselfs feel so good. Your just so mad about others having different opinions.

This is the exact trait of droidboys: go onto sites where you are supposed to talk about IOS. And IOS only. And talk your biased talk. The only reason we are even responding to you is to encourage you guys to talk somewhere else. Talk in an article actually related to IOS if your belifs are so huge and not here. Please.

Heck, why do you even talk on these sites? To get people to switch? Or make yourselfs feel so superior? C'mon, that is so childish. Android users will stay on android and IOS users will stay on IOS, and they will be both happy about it.

We IOS users don't need random facts about android or insults to IOS thrown to us, so you guys don't get that either. Okay?

GSMA's comments section is getting more toxic and more toxic each day.

>>LOL what time spent? To maintain what? It takes 2 min to root.
Once you root, you simply use it for whatever your purpose is.

Rooting unlocks privileges not available by default.
Now if you are asking me all the things you can do with root, I won't bother listing them coz it's too long.
Xda is your friend.

It seemed like you use your phone as your primary computing device this is why posed the question to you. My phone is not my primary device and I spend much less time on my phone than my other devices. I am just trying evaluate if the time spent in maintaining a rooted device is worth the additional functionality.
Whenever I have asked people who root their devices what additionally functionality they use on a daily basis after rooting, I get same response that you gain lots of functionality and you need to be technically skilled. I know some fellow developers who root their phone just for the sake of rooting. Some form of bragging right.

I am not even gonna count the apps that aren't on playstore but are available from credible sources like xda and others.
You have no clue about the feature set and functionality that can be unlocked via Root.
This isn't the domain for the technically challenged.

And what satisfaction rate are you talking about? Links or never happened.
Go on Apple sites, complains after complain.
People are fed up of overrated iOS.

Always the same talking points.
Apple implemented then better. Lol.

Only native apps have widgets now. No third party apps.
Did you even watch videos on YouTube explaining iOS 14.
The widget system on Android in 2012 can do more than the widget system from Apple in 2020.
How is the implementation any better?
You are actually proving my post right.


Android Master, 24 Jun 2020It's hilarious, every feature that iOS lacks is labeled as ... morethey are gimmicks. And still are in IOS 14. except that apple has better implementation(you can drag the widgets to wherever you want, etc.).

These features shouldn't be why you buy one OS from the other. You should buy it cause of the ecosystem and integration. They are nice-to-have, not need-to-have. EVEN in IOS 14.

And if your argument was correct, why does IOS have 97% satisfaction rate? Huh?

Before you try and spit the same argument back, please understand it first.

I am not being sarcastic and this is a genuine question. I got the point regarding firewall and one can also analyze network traffic. But beyond that, what other functionality you gain from rooting.
I also have an old S7 edge and S9 but except for bloatware(which I disabled) I didn't miss any functionality. I use my device for everything from work, media consumption to gaming.

I know yu can and rooting is good but i just disable apps that i dont like... sure completely uninstalling them will be even better but i dont think i need to do that

Got phones which are 5-6 years old.
No bugs at all. Don't need bragging rights for latest updates as even Android from a decade ago can do more than iOS 14 under the so called latest updates.
Now they'll spend the next 6 months fixing bugs.

You are the one alien to facts.
