Damn. I was in Florida this past weekend and iPhones are taking over the world.
For every Android device I saw, I saw at least 200 iPhones.
I have a Galaxy Nexus which I think is still the best phone on the planet until the Nexus 4 comes out next week.
My question is, does anyone else see this happening? Are people getting stupid? Reminds me of the move "Idiocracy".
Probably over half these people probably don't even know how to use it.
iPhone 5 users think that the panorama and facetime over 3G features where the best thing since sliced bread.
I didn't comment that Android all ready had that for a while now because I didn't want to get jumped by the high density of iPhone users.
One girl didn't know she could buy Apps from the App Store on the phone itself. She had always bought her apps from iTunes because she couldn't find the iTunes app on her phone (that's why you're an iPhone user).
One guy was talking to me about Retina Display but didn't know what it is.
Just thought I share my experience.
Sorry, not to rip on iPhone power users, but the majority of smartphone users are stupid.
I have nothing against Apple. I always tell people that if they don't want to mess with their phones, then get an iPhone.
Hardware is that the initial place that the variations between the iPhone and mechanical man become clear. Apple is that the solely company that creates iPhones, giving it extraordinarily tight management over however the package and hardware work along. On the opposite hand, Google offers its mechanical man package to several phone manufacturers (Samsung, HTC, LG, and Motorola, among others, provide mechanical man phones). As a result, mechanical man phones vary quite an bit in size, weight, features, user expertise, and quality.
First thing I will say is, its a very simple concept behind the reason the IOS platform (which is the operating system of the iPhone) is more secure and virtually malware/virus free (Nothing is absolutely secure/invulnerable.. ever) is because every app on the app store has to go through a review process by apple which screens them for any breaches in security and violation of app store rules. Seconds is because IOS has a various set of security tools within the OS itself.
Now compare this to android, the google app store is open, apps do not go through a review process and thus can contain security holes or be malware in themselves. This is almost to par with why windows users are prone to viruses and malware, its easy to inject the necessary code into the ecosystem and produce something that will gain profit from stealing information from a users phone. Lets face it, if you were a developer of malicous software would you rather have 1000 people be infected and your package removed from the app store in 1 day or infect 1000000 on android and have your package remain on the store for many months? That's essentially why android has anti virus scanners and anti malware apps. Now this isn't to say that android doesn't try to be as secure as possible, because it does, most apps run sandboxed (cannot interact with files outside of its own) and are pretty safe, but there are ways around the sandbox.
ios, secure? thats a laugh.
ios can be hacked in seconds for those that know how. it is done at every hack-a-thon.
windows is affected by more bugs because people target them more due to the larger user base.
i'm not sure about how the user bases compare with phone os but you are right that it would be easier to slip a bad app in on android. however, this does not mean that ios is immune. do you think they check every line of code?
The Samsung Galaxy S 3 recognizes our voice, understands our habits and shares our moments instantly with intuitive technology on a 4.8" HD Super AMOLED display. The Samsung Galaxy S3 is a smartphone from Samsung that was launched on May 3 2012 in London. One of the most noticeable change would be a new brightness slider that appears in the notification drop-down, although there was feedback from users that new VPN and enterprise security enhancements are also part of the deal.
