iPhone Vs. Android
Changed my Android Desire S for an iPhone just to see what the fuss is all about. 10 minutes in, I work out that this was a way wrong decision...iPhone 4 usability and navigation is so much more complicated to use. What I really hate most about the iPhone is:
- You can't get rid of defaut applications unless you jail break the iPod
- You have no fucking widgets. This means that everything you do comes from a source application button. With an Android you can have a dedicated homescreen with a widget so you can get the information just by swiping to that homescreen in question - so much easier for things like Youtube, Twitter and Google+. With an iPhone you have to click on the icon to get to where you want. The Youtube Application interface is also terrible where you can't see new related videos to your suscribers: you can only view videos from your suscribers and that's only when you click on their name. With an Android, your suscriber videos are there all in one.
- Having multiple Google Accounts is difficult to manage on an iPhone whereas on an Android, the application is exactly like how it is on a computer.
- Apple Application Store is difficult to use and for the life of me, I can't make it stop asking for my freaking sign-in name and password everytime I want to download an application.
I apologise in advance for venting but feel as if I need to inform Android users thinking about changing. For those of you who have never used an Android cell phone but have only used an iPhone, try an Android and I'm sure you won't go back to Apple.
Arghhghgh, worst piece of cell phone I have ever used. I've ordered a free sim and adapter so I can change back to my Android. Anyway, this is just my venting and my opinion so yeah, of course it's going to be biased but I'm interested in seeing the different views on why people seem to like iPhones more. I can't think of a reason why tbh.
EDIT: Limiting the poll only to Android and iPhone users, sorry.
