    I find it ironic that the Mac division at Apple were quick to adopt USB Type-C while the iPhone division avoids it like the plague.
    I think the Mac and iPhone divisions at Apple must have very different corporate cultures.

    - free access to shitty and malware apps on the Google app store
    - becoming super laggy after 3 months
    - with 8+ GB can't even match iphone speed
    - taking a century to adapt at some features
    - adding unnecessary apps you don't give a shit about
    - putting multiple same apps that you don't even need
    - copy-paste almost everything Apple dared to do last year
    hmmm... no thank you

There is no other smartphone option that compares to the iPhones quality the quality of there constant free software updates the quality of their hard wear and the quality of the service in there store

    Number 9 - you mentioned it's controversial, but didn't tell why: This is a non-issue for people who are not used to android back button and I believe most of them find iOS way superior. It's also unfair to say Apple didn't solve it since iPhone 6, they actually have 2 solutions for this:
    1. All apps which are following Apple design guidelines (which is all of the most popular ones like Facebook, Instagram and all the well known social network apps, Chrome, Uber,... whatever comes to your mind, of course all Apple apps), allows you to swipe right to go back, or swipe left to return back, which is extra feature in comparison to Android. Only exceptions are maybe some games and maybe other special "artistic" apps that have very special GUI. But for 99% use cases you can go back with one hand, even on the biggest iPhones, with ease.
    2. As for the bigger size of the screen and problems with one handed operation, when Apple came up with iPhone 6, they also introduced a feature in iOS called "Reachability", that allows you to swipe down on the bottom part of the screen to bring the upper half of the screen to the bottom part, so you can easily reach it with one hand. Again, a great feature for one hand operation that Android does not have (at least not by default).
    So yes, this is a non-problem for iOS users, only if they recently switched from Android and have different habits. But I believe that iOS solution is actually much more elegant and natural.

    Jailbreaking an iPhone (or any iOS device for that matter) allows you to do more than you could on stock unrooted android.
    You can also sideload apps on iOS, look up cydia impactor. It uses your apple ID and password to sign the app and install it. There's also custom stores for iOS such as ignition.

    better than what. android is a slow unreliable piece of crap. the hardware it runs on would have uses if it came with full datasheets, which, it does not. car radios that take 30 seconds to start up are completely useless, tablets and phones that randomly lose wifi and bluetooth connections and don't automatically reconnect instantly to either are even worse. and why the hell do we have to turn on the only core function such a thing would have (usb ethernet or bluetooth tethering) every time again it starts up or gets plugged in again. why the fuck doesn't it contain a usb hub to do all of it's functions at the same time (file storage, usb ethernet and preferably, also usb seral port to access the simcard with AT commands, something they usually can't even do, at all). it's absolute garbage. simple.

    • Sven Olaf Kamphuis
      Sven Olaf Kamphuis 5 days ago

      the damn things already crack and bend if you look at them too hard. like wtf. we invented perfectly fine field telephones made of solid steel in the 1930s already. so wtf is up with all the plastic flimsy shit in shops.

    • Sven Olaf Kamphuis
      Sven Olaf Kamphuis 5 days ago

      but i guess we're better off just buying from lockheed martin and the likes than buying from 'apple' or 'samsung' anyway. it's becoming rather hard to buy PROPER products nowadays, we even have to import our cars from iran because we don't want silly can-bus driven shit that's made of plastic and will poop out it's airbags in dispair whenever it jut sees a pedestrian. shops are filled with shit we'd simply throw into the shredder instantly nowadays. whatever happened to solid engineering.

    • Sven Olaf Kamphuis
      Sven Olaf Kamphuis 5 days ago

      their whole tendency of selling you things and then acting like you rented it of them or they would retain any rights to it (end user licenses and shit like that, or samsungs tendency to demand that they get used with a european sim card on a european network for 5 minutes after pulling them out of hte box and refusing to document how to program that out of it) is annoying like hell and borderline conspiracy to defraud, after all the guy in the shop never tells the user they are not BUYING the phone and would have to engage in some sort of 'contract' the moment they turn it on.

    • Sven Olaf Kamphuis
      Sven Olaf Kamphuis 5 days ago

      'software updates' are not needed on a finished product. simple. security (AND something android does not do at all, completely wiping out data in ram and on storage after it no longer has any use, and in most cases, not storing it in the first place (nobody ever asked them to keep track of every single number the owner (not the 'user' - the OWNER) ever dialed in the first place) should be in mind at every step of development, products that are not 100% finished should never get shipped. both the hardware and the software. the memory map should be -perfect- (no 'holes'). the electrical engineering should be -perfect-, and the software should not be written in some lazy higher language but in assembly. we don't pay for 8 core 2ghz cpus just so programmers can get lazy and use 'java' and give an end result that is even slower than a c64 running on 1mhz.

    • Sven Olaf Kamphuis
      Sven Olaf Kamphuis 5 days ago

      keep in mind, 'android' didn't replace 'iphones'. android replaced analog and isdn phones. which have -no- boot time, work all the time, instantly do what the user wants, and can survive a nuclear impact and then still last 50 years. none of those things, either an android or iphone can do. however, they would do a lot better job at it if android could be completely wiped off of it and replaced with a firmware that would basically fit in the cpu cache alone (8KB should be more than enough to make it run even something like the macos on the mac classics and load in microseconds). and why7 the hell do we have to keep the power off key pressed for 10 fucking seconds like some fucking retard. if we press the off button it should go off. NOW. not in 10 seconds.
