Why the fuck are apple a bunch of thieves and charlatans

The iPhone has worse specifications than a phone worth less than 200

>iphones don't lag over time like android
Android doesn't lag if you have above lollipop and isn't a shit stock ROM that isn't aosp or cm based

>it does what I want it to do
You pay 900 for a Snapchat box
It does nothing a phone worth less than 300 can't do

>I really like the layout of iOS
Here is a newsflash fucktard
Android and iOS are fucking identical
You have the apps and settings just like every other phone
Just one costs 900 and the other costs less

>really good build quality
Phones aren't fucking supposed to bend, it shouldn't be easy to do at all
Why? Because the lithium ion battery if damaged is the equivalent to a bomb
Build quality and how something feels in the hand are very different things

>it gets some of the highest benchmarks
Another newsflash
There is a very big difference between a number and real world use, that 10000 on geekbench or whatever means fuck all if all you use is Facebook and Snapchat

Apple has a monopoly one one group of people
Young girls and people who know fuck all about technology
They appeal to people that are driven by the reptilian part of their brain that tells them "This isn't poisonous, I've eaten it before." So they buy the same phone every year for the same ludicrous price

"Overpriced" is what people suffering from buyers remorse and a fuckton of pride use instead of not worth the money

Apple have done nothing new since the iPhone 4
All they did with that was glass
And then I don't even think that was a first

Beyond any of OPs raging, I ditched apple because the only real customization you can do comes with jailbreaking.

Even without rooting you can customize the crap out of your android with different launchers and shit like klwp.

Idgaf if people buy iPhones or not but android certainly is more adaptable to an individual user than ios can dream of being

>>59993667
Holy shit fandroid, looks like you saw someone with an iPhone today.

You have to admit that the iPhone just works better and therefore has more value regardless of your silly comparisons.
>>
>>59993859
>android certainly is more adaptable
A bunch of jelly bean chips, a display, a fast processor, some sensors, a speaker, a microphone, software, glue and wires can be plenty customizable but doesn't necessarily make for a good smartphone.
>>
>>59993911
>You have to admit that the iPhone just works better
but does it?

it probably works better than the cheapest touchjizz samsung with 8GB storage but like, iPhones are so expensive that we can probably bump our android budget to at least 300

I'm pretty sceptical of there being any big difference at that point in typical use (read: popular, basic appplications)

Oh boy a hardware argument. You get what, 2-3 choices for apple hardware for shitty ios? There are many solid phones that use Android and the price spectrum is huge because there's so many phones to choose from. Not hard to find one that is good. Competition makes things good and inexpensive.

Dude I've been an Android user for 8 years, or Whatever, since Froyo. Did all the shit I wanted with Android.
Now I just want it to do things fast, and it fails at doing it, AFTER CONSIDERABLE USAGE.
Of course If I buy the new samsung flagship is fast as fuck, but after months or a year of usage it GETS SLOW, it's undeniable, I don't want to pander with cleaning cache, restoring, whatever ; I used to, I rooted, installed roms, you called it, Now I only fucking want to open the camera in no time, and after usage Iphone does it better

thats it

t. guy who is really sick of apples shit
>>
>>59995503
Android gets a new OS each year, but won't cripple your phone, and has near limitless backwards compatibility.

There's plenty custom slimmed down ROMs made for people that have ancient phones but want the newest ROM. Obviously it won't run as well compared to buying a flagship phone each year, but it beats carrying around a "flagship" iPhone for 4 years while it gets laggier with each patch.

Have fun trying to customize your phone instead of actually enjoying it. Oh and watch-out for malware.

Honestly this. Fuck Apple, and everything that they do. I will never ever buy an Apple device, I wouldn't even use it if I got it for free. (I would sell it if I did)

Android phones are just better, and have much better features. Apple users think their devices are top notch and ahead of everyone, but that's fucking bullshit.

Sadly though, a bunch of retards will continue to buy them. I wish Apple would go out of business or lose any significance that they have in the phone market.

Yes they're identical, next point.

>Phones aren't fucking supposed to bend, it shouldn't be easy to do at all

Very small batch, pick up any $300 phone and iphone and tell me more about how they're the same quality.

>Another newsflash

Your mad the hardware is actually decent but people don't use that decent hardware so what's the point? So 90% of the builds people on here run?

Also hardware encryption matter far more than anything else to me. End of story.

Android is pleb-tier garbage. It's cheaper for a reason. Sloppy and convoluted UI/menus, slower operating system, more bugs, etc

No one gives a shit about "muh customization." Most people aren't friendless losers that want a portable version of their desktop autism with them everywhere they go. They just want a phone that works and works well for what they need: phone calls, texting, emails, and light web browsing.
>>
>Android and iOS are fucking identical
So what? All that means is that Android is just a clone of the real thing :^)

The only """"""people"""""" who use Android are contrarian neckbeard perma-virgins that want to show off how "different" and "not like the rest of you sheeple" they are

They also unironically say things like "PC master race" and wear trench coats.
>>
I like the build quality and design. I've also found that if you don't treat your phone poorly, it lasts way longer than any Android phone. My iPhone 5 lasted four years. It's not even broken, it's just pretty slow.

Also, applications work better. I know you guys meme about >it just werks, but how is that a bad thing?
>>
>>59993667
Most people I know that have an iPhone and say "At least it doesn't lag like Android" used to have a shitty 100 dollar single or dual core Android phone.

No shit it lags if its old as fuck. Who knew that more expensive stuff can be better.

Gotta say tho, I personally find the iPod Nano (I wouldn't know what generation, but the very small one with the touchscreen) pretty neat.

What I don't get is why some people are unable to admit Apple isn't offering the perfect, most powerful device around.
>I-I only need 2gb ram for this device I use daily! I don't mind that the shit battery runs dry after extended periods of time! It's worth the $30-50+/month fee so it's all okay! I couldn't be seen using a non-Apple device. Have you seen the emojis Android uses? H-hahahah! They look like shit!
Like hey, you know? If you like their devices then keep using them. Not my problem. But it's not as if these phones are a gift from god himself. You don't have to act as if they are.
>>
>>60001527
You're comparing locked front door to unlocked back door entry. Why would you have to ask for permission to enter and let everyone know you're in the house when the back door door is unlocked and you're free to enter whenever? My grandparents started locking their back door once they realized how easy it was for someone to unknowingly come in. In a digital sense, this is even worse as there's no audial and/or visual indication that someone's there.

I am considering switching over because those California kikes have made jailbreaking nearly impossible, while also implementing shitting meme interfaces (7.0+).

pretty much this.
As a Britbong, when I'm out down the pub, the only people I see using Android phones (which are usually cracked to fuck) are the same people that jib out of buying rounds, ask you for a cigarette outside and then ask to use your lighter and not give it back.
I always judge someone with an Android as far less than I am. I'm not even on a decent wage but I can still afford the best pussy grabbing devices. As a male, you need to do everything you can do to help you get some premium pussy.
If you want to be banging the bottom 1% of girls then buy yourself an Android. Girls know as soon as you pull that Apple device out of your pockets that you're as supreme as it gets, premium cock, no holds barred sexual deity.

>>60002140
You completely dodged the point of my post. He said Android gets slower with use. I responded with mine hasn't had any performance drops the whole time I've been using it as it still runs smoothly. If I was having performance issues then I would have upgraded to 6.0 or higher, correct?
>>
>>60002246
No? You've been using your Android which has slowed down for so long you think the terrible responsiveness and performance is normal.
>>
>>60002264
See? All you can do is try to claim I'm lying because the truth doesn't match up with your thoughts. If it was slow to begin with then over these past what, two and a half years? of it being installed and daily use then it would have been noticeably slow to the point where it would be unusable, correct? Though of course that's not the case as I'm using it to type up this post as we speak. I know what lag looks like; the Nexus 7 2012 is basically unusable when that has 5.0 installed because of some NAND issue. Mine is nothing like that. You can keep giving me (you)s if you want though.
