1) Android doesn’t make larger screens, companies like Samsung make it using AMOLED screens with oversaturated colors that are nonetheless difficult to use in direct sunlight and the blues fade over time.
2) People need to have consistency and they know they will get a fine virtual keyboard with every iPhone and have a choice of numerous hardware keyboards.
3) Nobody uses NFC so this is meaningless and irrelevant.
4) Only the small number of geeks out there need to access the file system. 99% of actual users only need to be able to access files and move them through applications, something the iPhone does just fine.
5) Yes, Apple allows developers to determine whether or not certain things should be shared. That’s why most developers go with Apple first and make the most amount of money through developing apps for the iPhone.
6) Android does NOT use a “real USB port.” Rather, some OEMs use any one of many available USB ports and cables. Apple’s lightning port, besides being bilateral and thus easier to use, carries more types of power and data and does it faster than USB.
7) Yes, the iPhone does let users focus on what they’re doing rather than trying to figure out which application is in the foreground.
Hey. We get it, Avaram. You like Android phones. You’ve got your Fandroid glasses on and nothing will let you see that both the iPhone and the numerous Android phones (with all of their incompatibilities) have good qualities and other features that don’t meet your needs. Too bad you’ve got your nose so incredibly brown from sticking it up Google’s tail pipe you can’t see it.
What a tool. Android has nothing to do with screensize you brainless twat. Not only that, but I don’t WANT a stupid giant phone that practically needs it’s own purse to carry. Apps side by side??? WHO CARES!! That feature is ALMOST as irrelevant as being able to change the colors of my keyboard. OOOhh yippee, I can change the keyboard colors!! Access to the file system? IT”S A PHONE. NFC? I’ve never wished I could bang my phone on a soda machine instead of using my card, or “”GASP” using actual money. As far as the adapter cables go, you are spot on. Screw Apple and their overprices cables.
