- Interesting comment...what you described is your own personal experience but its not really a true generalisation of the Android eco-system...not really bothered what anyone uses but always get the slight negative comments from my mates who love their beloved iPhones, even when I show them a bit of Android magic....they still question it...one small one...getting a call, and auto-responding with a text option! (Which BTW is in the next iOS release!)......notifications which has been at the heart of Android day one....another feature now enhanced in iOS (and it should be) all for the user experience! I could go on....but for me and my own experience its brilliant. You mention bigger screens....whatever anyone says...size wise...its coming....you mention great user experience....that 3.5 inch screen has been around for 4 gens of iPhone.....from what I can see daily....in public.....no more squinting and holding your phone to your faces....a experience I've never endured (once I left my iPhone) because I've had the choice of sizes....lastly the N7....I'm a daily user.....its dope (for me that is!) ... and one last thing......another user experience that I enjoy.....a cable from my phone to my PS3 game controller allows me to play games natively, no messing....to sum up.....for me I prefer a walk in the park with my Android rather then being couped up indoors with my iPhone.....that's solely my experience and how I felt.... iOS is a great OS....but definitely not for ME. I could go on.....but I got some shooting to do on my N7, Dead Trigger with my controller....bring it.....Aug 13, 2012
- In that video why oh WHY didn't they demo the most important feature of the whole damn thing which is pen input! I was really hoping to see it used for brush and pencil work but instead we just get to see some layers and filters being used?Sep 5, 2012
Check this out... Am pretty sure PC Mag ain't fanboys..

- Well not sure about "all the market is Dumb" statement. It is a good phone with a good eco-system even though not for me but I understand its placement. Having played with the phone, it certainly seems smooth, got the usual functionality, IOS6 adds some tricks even thou functionality has been borrowed from other OS's (Great ideas can come from anywhere). The phone looks similar to the 4/4S but slightly longer/bigger screen and better inards! Benchmarks are not real world examples its more of a hardware test for me....the next phone will be even faster who cares! I dont own a iPhone and the people next to me at the Apple store had to reach for there iPhone 4/4S to see if it actually was different and were kinda baffled by how similar it all looked! I was comparing my GNex maps with the Apple Maps offering and must say Apple maps is premature, its not to that "Apple" standard, and maps is a major use of phones nowadays .......is it the best phone..... well for someone it is....for me definately not.....just because of how I personally use my phone. Im waiting to test the Nokia Lumia 920 tha excites me more.....in terms of the masses...there are alot of folks who dont know anything else but iPhone, I think this is now changing with the SGS3/HTC One X/Nokia phones as the marketing push on these products are getting through! and people are getting to know more about other choices! Thats a good thing.Sep 27, 2012
- I would argue that it depends on the end user. For me as a business owner while iOS has plenty of apps for productivity it lacks the customization that I have with Android to streamline the activities I do for my business. And as a power mobile user I dont think there is any difference at all between the "accuracy and professionalism" of iOS and Android. I use a lot and I mean a lot of google services for my business and for me there is no match between which OS to go to. Now I want to point out that I dont knock iOS and what it does or is, I also feel that having choices is a huge benefit for all of us. Can you imagine if there was only iOS or Android or WP8?Sep 29, 2012
- I have to agree with Damien on this, you mention "Accuracy" and "Professionalism" in regards to apps, functionality and its only for the serious user! Reading that to me has no standing ....lets take iOS6 .. which should be the latest, greatest and an even more professional and accurate system! There are wifi problems on devices, issues with apps, issues with Maps (public apology from Tim Cook himself!) And the issues go on! These things can happen in all eco-systems but the maps issue....'NO' they should have done right by their consumers...who in my opinion make up Apple...now lets take Android not only is it fun but it also has amazing functionality and professionalism... its grown year by year (its 4 years old!...) .. the military are developing phones for their troops based on Android, the kindle is based on Android and that's to name a few! I use Android as my choice and i have used others but i just cant take the restrictions that are put on me by iOS (i understand them up to a point but its not for me) e.g. I use maps alot...within iOS5 there are so many steps depending on what you need to do....even to share something....Android is intuitive enough to present you with many options e.g. share? Ok...mail?, text?, watsapp?, fb?, tweet? Etc that's 2/3 steps logical step....in iOS there are several dependant on the conditions or manually copy then do what you need... bottom line .. what an Android ecosystem gives me 'Work Smarter... Not Harder !!'. I'm not swaying anyone in fact I'm very eager to try the W8/Nokia 920 ecosystem.... me well I'm a serious professional and my Jelly Bean/1 year old Gnex is an insane combo, logical, fast, accurate.....your statement is definitely wild and incorrect! when it comes to myself as a user.Sep 29, 2012
