I commend Neutral for his comments. It is unprofessional to bash others for what they like. To each their own. Steve God or whatever his name is, is just a childish idiot who obviously wasn't taught that if u got nothing good to say, just shut the f up. There are good qualities and flaws to both Android and the iOS and both did copy some features from each other and other mobile OSs. That's technology. Stop the bashing. Makes me sick.

Why not just use what phone you prefer instead of making all these comments? Don't just hide behind the computer and making these comments. Mine is better, Mine is better Mine is better...... that's really unprofessional and childish. Just imagine you are speaking out in public, would you say out loud what you typed here? If not then you are just hiding behind a PC, if so try it and see what reaction you will get from the general public/group of iPhone users/Group of Android users about your un-professional comments.

Android users don't comment like you because they are not as childish as iOS users in this specific case. No and not every iOS users are childish and there are childish Android users as well. All about statistics.

iOS is iOS Android is Android. Use what you prefer. Why have to "win" or "loose" like this? Some people are like that, insecurity and paranoia will make them put others (Things or people) down in order to make what you own or are referring to look better.
