09 February 2021
Users always had to specify the player they wanted to use but now a third-party music app can be set as the default.

Finally!

You g... moreI tried ignoring them, but what, am I suppose to just leave them s**t on every single comment I make unchallenged? I'm tired of reading straight up lies about iOS because it's a pretty decent OS, but a lot of people don't even give it a try after years of reading perpetual lies about how limited it is (it just isn't) and about "walled garden" which also doesn't exist. It's so fast, consistent, reliable timely updates for much longer and has much better privacy and controls for it. I haven't touched iPhone for so long and was dealing with rubbish Android "things" for so long because of those lies. I mean, when so many people keep saying them for so long they become "truth". Except they are all lies. Switching from Android to iOS isn't any different than switching between different brand Android phones. Minus Google. But experience is quite something and I encourage people to try it if they are unhappy with how Android is being managed and what all inherent problems it has.

AnonD-804996, 09 Feb 2021And I ask you for top 5 birds. And if you don't reply ... moreI feel sorry for you man, but is also your fault too. You give these people too much attention by replying to their comments. Also, don’t think too much what others say about you, especially on this site.
Why do you think I post in anonymous now?
Anyway, those guys are terrible persons, met many of them in real life. I immediately saw how they think and act.
When I switched to iphone in the past, they always hated me and said bad things to me. Then when I return to Android (especially chinese models) they immediately became my “best friends” on this site, liking my comments, etc.
They say about other people that they are haters, as long as you don’t like what they like. But the biggest haters on this site are them.
They are tiny people with tiny minds. And I am not talking about height.

And if you don't reply I'll harass you every day about it because you didn't write your top 5 favorite cars of this year. And when you'll finally write it, I'll demand something equally as stupid and harass you again if you don't. Because that's what you lunatics are doing when you run out of normal arguments within normal discussions. Not that I ever had one with you crazy people. I'm done and from now on, any such BS hostile responses will be treated as harassment and I'm just gonna report you all because I'm tired of all of you attacking me on every comment that I make here on GSMArena. I have F ton of patience and I ran out of it.

[deleted post]I literally NEVER EVER claimed that. Absolutely NEVER. Stop making s**t up. I'd ask you to quote me or link to a screenshot, but I for a fact know you can't because I never claimed such a thing.

[deleted post]He literally is asking you for top 5 list in this very thread. Yet you are twisting it and not answering the question. Go ahead and deny it. But no one going to take you seriously after this. You are exposed to be another tr°ll.

He as... moreNo, he asked me to list all the Android phones that I owned because he was accusing me that I never used an Android phone and that I have no experience with Android OS. And I gave the damn list to him. And now he wants my top 5 phones of a year. What's next, he wants to know my top 5 burger places? Just get lost already all of you insufferable Apple haters with your BS made up hating on iOS with most pathetic arguments. So you absolutely hate Apple and iOS. Then why do you care so much about it that you go on and attack me in every frigging post where I write pretty much anything at this point. Eh, why? Where have I hurt you? Show Android devs on the doll where I hurt you. Jesus. You people are some next level of insane.

You just kept making excuses, avoided answering the question, as you know, you don't want to put Android phones in the list on account of being the biggest Android hater on this site. DROID AUTHORITY guy exposed you as just another iOS tr°ll.

Walled Garden statement is true.
It's this lack of abilities of iOS (eg: This lack of ability to set 3rd party apps as default and many other things) that has always kept iOS in second place.
Always Second, Never First.

Besides, I am still waiting for you to furnish your top 5 phones of the year list.
I am not going to take an Android hater like you seriously until you give me your list. Uptil then you'll still be counted in the category of iOS trolls on this site.

Not working for me... If I ask Siri to play any song, artist, or whatever else, since uninstalling Apple Music (as I just use Spotify), she'll only come back with not a request for the app I'd like to use, but rather with something saying that you'll need to download an app. Le sigh...
Seems like from what I've heard is that it's a random chance sort of thing, so until I can get her to do this, I'll have to continue using the "on/with Spotify" specifier.

Google assistant is the gold standard for the job it is designed to do (to be a virtual assistant to the end consumer). It does that job better than any other virtual assistant on the market.

There is no mental gymnastics on my part. Just you not being able to digest the fact that Google Assistant is the gold standard and not Siri.

I need third party browser, like Firefox with Gecko. System webview is too glitchy.

Android-Authority, 09 Feb 2021Yes! Yes! There is no such thing as ease of use on iOS. It&... moreOh my god, can you just stop repeating this BS lie already? You're literally pulling claims about iOS being complicated to use out of your arse. And just shows how absolutely zero experience you have with iOS. You're just s**ting on it because you're an angry sad Apple hater. iOS in terms of use is the exact same thing as Android. If you've used Android you'll get used to iOS with same learning curve as you have switching between Android versions of different vendors, like between Xiaomi's MIUI and Samsung's OneUI. But no, you just have to go your same BS route of pissing on iOS and praising Android to all ends. And anyone who has actually used both can see right through your crap. Stop scaring people about things you have absolutely no clue. It's crap like this that makes people not even give iPhone/iOS a try. It's why I'm so vocal about it here. Not because I'm an Apple fanboy, it's because I'm sick and tired of people like you who constantly literally lie about things (namely iOS in particular).

Android-Authority, 09 Feb 2021What a load of BS!!! Most iPhone users do use Google'... moreSo much for the "muh closed ecosystem" when most people are using products that are not from Apple apparently. Or not from either. Its almost as if the perpetually repeated "walled garden" statement is a lie...

Why can't you just accept the reality?
How does he become a fanoboy for stating the obvious? Why can't you just happily praise Android for once? That anonymous guy didn't even talk about Android being superior. He simply was talking about Google's assistant being the gold standard out there which indeed is true.
Is it because he exposed your lies about Siri being better for privacy than Alexa and Google assistant?

Only Android giving users the required freedom and flexibility in their products. IOS is literally 10 years behind its competition.
