That I could shut these iphone idiots up with my droid x, just for those that go. So.... My iphone is better

Unfortunately no, most of the people I know with iPhones and anything else apple are in the cult and Steve does no wrong. Back in the day I used to make fun of them due to having to use mittens when they used their computers due to the one big mouse button and that made them upset but if they were of the mindset that if Steve says it's cool or what they had to have, then that was gospel. :)

Just know you are better off.

I do have an iPhone and an X btw, one from work and my personal, just fyi. My iPhone gets a charge about once a week, my X multiple times a day :)

Don't try to have a contest and brag how what you have is better than what they have. It just makes you come off as a jerk. I know I hate it when people say stuff like that to me. Sure, I could throw stats and technical terms at em til my eyes bleed, but honestly, what is the point? It's not like it's a huge deal.

seeing as how we have one of the biggest android phones, you could just "rock them with the brick" =]

If you really wanna shut up iFollowers do what I do. When they pull out their phone, I whip out my X and we have comparison tests. I'm currently 14-1 and the only reason I lost the 1 was because they have a front facing camera for video chat.

In all honesty, the people that are in the Steve Jobs cult cannot be swayed. They think that everything apple is gods gift to man. They don't understand tech specs or customization or open source. They need to have all their apps laid out in front of them to work properly. Let them live in their bubbles. The users who have embraced Android and Linux know what its like to be free and have your phone the way you want it. Data doesn't lie, Android just took down Symbian as the number one OS. Bring on the dual core, 4G iphone5, we've already got 4 months on ya SUCKAS

(ps- anyone else see that moto might be making the next nexus? Moto's build quality + open bootloader = my new phone, regardless of carrier)

Yeah most iphone users are ignorant to anything tech heavy.

Most of us who are regulars in these forums spend a great deal of time happily helping Android users who are not "tech heavy" enough to know how to operate their devices, maintain them for speed, move files around, root/unroot, etc. Some introduce themselves and then ask how to make a phone call on their new device. ;)

Without non tech savvy Android users, this forum cluster would not exist (that goes for iPhone forums, Blackberries, etc).

The whole thing about iPhones vs Androids is just about some people wanting to pretend like whatever they have is the very best and whatever others have is not. We see it in car forums, gun forums and hat forums. :D

honestly, its a phone....who cares whose is better, faster, tougher, cooler ect. its a phone. something we carry around to keep in contact with other people.

i havn't had much trouble convincing people that android is the way to go...it is usually the screen size that gets them.

both phones are amazing devices, and 99% of the people out there would be happy with either. i prefer android because i am not a big fan of the "blah" design of the iphones. i like that i have a different device, i like the larger screen, and i hate itunes. all reasons i will never get an iphone.

I recommend not letting everyone else's choice in phone manufacturer affect your life to the point where you feel the need to prove something.

I also recommend not dismissing an incredibly solid piece of technology like the iPhone as somehow inferior. The iPhone basically single-handedly brought smartphones to the average person. Without the iPhone, we would not have the same Android experience that we're all enjoying.

Make a phone call.

That one cracks me up.

I did this once. We were on a school trip to Washington, D.C. and these two guys had just gotten iPhones. I came in to breakfast with my phone tuned into one of our local radio stations(now 750 miles away from D.C.) via the TuneIn Radio app. They didn't think it was cool at all. They took it as me trying to put them down. Now, I'd imagine they have a similar app to do the same but they didn't know that.
Sometimes you are just better off leaving it alone.

The iPhone isn't a bad phone. It certainly was a breakthrough when it was first released. It wasn't that the technology was any better, but the overall package was unique. That has been Apple's biggest ability - the ability to take technology that already exists but never quite took hold, and make it into a "must have" household device/system. But Apple never really pushes the envelop when it comes to actual technology.

Why even bother fighting with the iPhone crowd? So they love their phones - guess what, we love our DroidX's. If they keep talking trash, just mention that the biggest talkers are generally the ones that have the lowest confidence levels. They talk a big game to try and build themselves up.

As always, you cant win with close minded people... I could name a few 'cults' but I know most of the people on here are in them.. lol

But all I say to iPhone douches is "See that little green thing hoovering around my phone? yeah, that's right... that's Android, He is a robot...what do you got.. ohh an apple.... that's cute."

no its these people that think they have the greatest thing on the face of the earth that i want to dwarf toss


as for my thoughts on the iphone, i've refined it to this. Apple revolutionized the smartphone/touchscreen industry. That being said, the iPhone has become the soccermom minivan of the smartphone industry.

I also really enjoyed the comment above about the removable battery, and you could add to that the removable sdcard.

On your browser, go to any website that has embedded Flash video content, and ask if their phone can do that.

Or, go up to an iPhone owner and casually take the battery cover off and replace your dead battery with your charged spare. :D

Show them the SD card....they may not know what it is.....

edit: and how you can swap them in and out
