You can customize the screen, add live animations to the screen saver, and in the latest version, you can voice control the camera, and to many other things to list here, to make you jealous.

Couldn't careless about flash

You can wirelessly install apps on iPhone

Removable memory and battery. Never unstood the fasination. No removable battery means bigger battery and better battery life.

iOS 6 will leave android and Microsoft wondering how apple has squashed them yet again.

Every time the new iOS comes out it make the other phones look like stone tablets. There is nothing about an android phone the makes me jealous. As long as I can make phone calls. Receive phone calls. Check my calendar and reminders. Set an alarm. Send messages. I'm happy.

Well maybe I skipped a few things.


Basically I was more then very impressed with 12 or so apps that we're featured in the original iPhone. Now they have come along way since then. And I'm more then happy to download a cool app fromt time to time. In fact I have 3 or 4 pages of apps some including folders. But every time I hear some rave about their android phone. It's a bout some random feature that really means nothing in the scheme of things. And the end of the day it seems making all on your phone seems almost irrelavant now. When that's really the primary feature. Just because an android a user can swipe down and change te Bluetooth setting doesnt make the iPhone crap. It's the overall experience. And iPhone wins hands down. And your living proof of that.

I'm not taking the bait anymore Ken...:)

Jamie is right...:)

It would be nice to have some of the features of Android, but the overall experience of iOS wins hands down.

iOS = Simple, elegant, intuitive and powerful.

Android= Powerful, customizable and bloody confusing.

Yes, Ken, you are right there.

It is like Windows and IOS. You have more flexibility on Windows platform than on IOS. I used to mock around much more with my PC than I do with my MAc. It depends where you coming from when we say "walled garden" .

What you want to do and not do on you PC or MAc or on your Iphone or Android. ( not interested to fiddle on the mac in the same way ) from a purely amateurish viewpoint I can't be bothered anymore. That is why I got a Mac.

I reckon it is just a matter of preference.

My friend who is a Dj would not have anything to do with MAc. Can't be manipulated in the same way says he.

The reason why I changed to Nokia is that I found that the platform Symbian was more user friendly not everything was preordained (not anymore ) Again matter of preference.

But having said that, I do find that IOS is simply elegant ...like you said Brian.
