Buying anything other than an iPhone is a reactionary act: you are choosing not to buy an iPhone for some reason (spoken or unspoken): either because you hate Apple, or are trying to save money, or harbor philosophical beliefs of what your technology should allow you to do, etc. No one chooses to buy an Android or what have you (obviously). There's always some psychological turmoil lurking just beneath the surface of that decision.

But not just at the time of purchase. No! Then you constantly need to bother your friends and family about how XYZmessenger is way better than iMessage (please use it, guys?). Or that customizable widgets are totally worth the sociological ostracism, that's why you bought a phone right? To customize the icons. So cool you guys. You're isolated in a cul-de-sac of your own making, but at least you can pretty it up. Constant, ongoing psychologically-draining drama basically.

Buying an iPhone, by comparison, has no shadowy subtext. iPhone is synthesis, anything else is antithesis

If you view it as just a phone you would by the shittest model. If you buy it as a smart phone you buy it as a status symbol, and no matter how 'flashy' your android phone might be, people will still think you're poor.

There are much cheaper android phones, good for burners, etc. Not sure why somebody would buy a non-iphone for the price of an iPhone though, as iPhones have been unanimously rated as the best smartphones on the market, every year since release.

I personally can't wait for the thunderbolt headphone set. Not just for the audio clarity, but for when all other phones eventually move to USB/proprietary headphone jacks in three years I can't wait to see the damage control lagdroid faggots spin.

Hello OP.

i have the iphone 6. 64GB. the amount of storage space is super important to state for applefags.

Anywho, i hate this phone with a passion. Everything it does, Android phones do better.

And the irony of being on 4chan with an iphone is that I STILL CANT FUCKING WATCH WEBMS DIRECTLY!

luckily i ordered a Oneplus X a few days ago. it resembles the iphone, and thank jesus, mohammed and buddah, its android.

cant wait to sell this piece of shit of a phone thats starting to break after only 6 months lol.

>nicest form factor

The form factor looks basically like an HTC, it's a common slate form factor, except that the HTC back is curved so that it's nicer to hold in the hand. iPhones are flat, so ergonomically inferior to even HTC phones.
Also, iPhones have a boring gay design. Every year is the same old rounded edges shit, made by mister mediocrity himself, Ive. He doesn't know how to design anything unless it has rounded edges or a cushion profile. Literally all icons on iOS look like cushions. So much uniformity and monotony...

Also, iPhone lack very common and useful features such as microSD card trays. They think "the cloud" is everything you need for storage, even when you might be travelling in an area with very low signal. Not to mention how badly customers of the Apple cloud have been screwed by the fappening. Also why would you have to wait to download your movie from the cloud when you could simply have your whole collection of new movies on an mSD card? Just makes no sense. But in the iPhone world, this makes sense... =/

>nicest operating system
Locked customisation is the nicest mobile OS? So, basically it's like in totalitarian communist regimes: you either like what the Apple Party says it's good for you or it's your problem.

You see, that's the similarity between Apple and totalitarian regimes: you guys both like uniformity and no options for personal choices. Apples knows best what's good for you, comrade! Obey.

Here's why I bought a 1+1 instead of a Crapple.

>better performance than iphone
>MUCH better screen than iphone (bigger, too)
>build quality is actually bearable, doesn't shatter when dropped
>camera is on point, actually better than a lot of dedicated cameras I've owned over the years
>can actually do real work on it, such as programming (which the iphone is incapable of)
>global adblocker and other fun root features that the iphone will literally never have
>plays music without having to go through shittunes or downloading some specialized 'music import' software
>half the price of an iphone

I have an 8GB iPod Touch 3 back in the day which I used for music playing and web browsing and stuff. It was the most fragile piece of memeware I've ever used. The screen shattered when I dropped it four feet onto kitchen tile. The phone I had before my 1+1 (a Kyocera Hydro Vibe, i.e. a bargain bin crapphone I paid $50 for) survived a 6-foot drop onto asphalt with literally no damage whatsoever.
If I'm going to spend a lot of money on a peice of consumer electronics, I expect to get my money's worth. No Apple product released since Android left memehood has been worth buying.

Most of the people I know in real life have Android phones anyway. The "android users are all poor basement dwelling NEETs!" is a lie propagated by people who spent their dad's money on a $900 piece of trash and then try to justify it. The one guy I know who actually does use an iPhone has a jailbroken, heavily modified* iPhone 4 he bought on launch day and still uses. And he's said in the past that whenever it breaks he'll just get a 1+2.

Actually, they do. Chrome itself includes the entire Chromium runtime, which is what ChromeOS apps run off of - this means that if you're on a computer that's physically compatible with ChromeOS, you can run some Android apps even if you're on Windows.
It's a niche, sure, but it's a fucking cool niche when you see it in action.

the only reason you need webm is because google jewed out and didn't 'support h264 like the rest of the world. i don't know anywhere that uses webm besides 4chan anyway. and if you browse 4chan on your phone you have major metal problems

Apple products are all beta products.

Operating systems:
Yosemite - Lags like piece of shit, graphical user interface is sloppy
El Capitan - Another fast release OS with more features, this time they tried to correct problems in Betamite, some people report having wireless bugs on it.

Computers:
Macbook - single port mac, with shit cpu and no replaceable parts.

Macbook pro 13"- Just a minor update and price rise. woow it's fucking nothing (they are stalling in making something interesting)

Macbook pro 15" - Gets uncomfortably hot when doing really heavy work on 15". Some models throttle.

iMacs - Only high ends are actually worth something but not for the price of 3 grand, problem with boot camp and having to use specific Apple drivers apparently. (on windows)

iPad pro - Tablet with no real professional programs and locked down piece of shit OS. Doesn't even come with pen. Just iPad with bigger screen and better specs with "pro" joke slapped on product name. Yes, base model doesn't even have 3g/Lte how can it even have a "pro" on it

iPhone:
iPhone 6S - let's face it, the 3D touch is gimmick bullshit and you very rarely use it, you paid for this beta test with battery life and increase in weight. Most problems lies in iOS which is too locked down piece of shit.

Misc:

Apple watch - niche product with shit battery and needs phone to get best of it. Stupid, inconvenient and expensive.

Apple pen - A 99 dollar pen accessory for thousand dollar "pro" tablet.

iOS - Locked down piece of shit.

Sounds like you've never tried.
There's three main ways to 'manage' files on your Android phone:
1: Use an actual file manager. One usually comes preinstalled, but if you're using android 4 or earlier you might need to grab one from the play store.
2: Use Google's quasi-'file manager' that collects stuff on your devices and kinda merges it with stuff on your Drive, so you can treat files on your Drive as if they were on the phone. I'm not too familiar with this one because I don't really use Google Drive.
3. Plug it into your computer (any computer, really) and marvel in the fact that Android exposes your phone's entire OS to the computer, which iPhones will never do.

This approach encourages tech illiteracy and discourages learning and building technical competence by managing your files with special tools.

Weren't you owning many android devices and had explored them in every way? Google Now looks like that, and after pronouncing your query gives you a card (in this case dictionary) and below search results. The card is exactly what you get on Siri/Cortana after a question, but having the search results there mean you can just say "Hamburger" and scroll down for places to eat, instead of saying "where can I eat an hamburger" and getting mad because it doesnt hear you in the noise

There's six general use cases, all of which I've done in the last month. To get a little more niche:
>Downloaded a compiler, want to move it into $PATH so I can run it natively from my terminal
>Misplaced by Keepass database, ended up moving it to its own folder in ~/
>Seeing which folder I forgot to give myself write permissions to when aforementioned compiler didn't work
>Deleting the tombstones left over by removed apps (this can be automated but I didn't bother installing SDMaid at the time)
>Writing a quick note to myself in the text editor before I went to bed so I wouldn't forget in the morning

You can't even do most of this on iOS PERIOD, while in Android it's all rolled into the file manager.

I have a HP touchpad and an Android car stereo. I explored them fully at the time. HP touchpad i don't use, and my android stereo just plays the radio now and bluetooth handsfree. Haven't bothered with them since Now has come out, but i keep tabs on all the new features being added, which i can understand from being competent with the core android system. I was just surprised that Google Now is basically just Google search.

Nope.
Google Now first parses your command to see if you were actually telling it to do something related to your phone (ie "Ok Google, show me a map of Slovakia" will open the Maps app and focus on Slovakia). If it can't be reasonably interpreted to be a phone command, it opens up the Google app (not the browser, Google - it's a lightweight cache-based version of the search engine) and does some weird things behind the scenes to try and figure out exactly what you meant. Oftentimes it will pick a 'result' that it thinks you wanted and then read it aloud, while giving you the option to scroll down if it isn't what you wanted.

any decent password manager lets you select any decent cloud service to sync with. If you are using a password manager without syncing, there would be absolutely zero reason to have to move the database anywhere on the device, as there's only one storage space

Hmmm... I am not sure, I sure can afford an iphone, and an imac and a macbook, but I chose samsung... dunno why, but I always felt like apple was limited as it has its own programs and OS and shit... plus I wanted a water resistant phone so samsung galaxy S5 was the obvious choice... Maybe if apple makes a water resistant iphone I might consider buying it. But for now I am happy with my S5. I reeally wanted the S6 but I was afraid i'd break it when taking it out of my pocket while sitting down in a confined space like a car seat, same issue with iphone 6S by the way, I was also afraid of breaking that. But next time I will buy a samsung galaxy S7 or an iphone 7something.

>Apple has an app store with all apps on it. If it's something shady, you can side load it.
Android has this too, but not every app is in one of the repositories. Dashchan's primary plugins, for example, are only available for download from their Github page. In iOS you'd have to sideload this from a computer. In Android, you can do it natively.
>ive'e used sub music for the last half decade
I've never heard of "sub music" and Google isn't helping, so I'm assuming you had a stroke again.
>coda app
I literally said "that you don't feel like opening your IDE for". Also, having to download an external application to solve a problem that doesn't exist on Android in the first place is the opposite of a solution.
>iCloud drive
That doesn't even make any sense. How would you get a file from your USB drive onto your phone via iCloud without going through your phone first?
>settings.app or ask siri
Apple is notorious for 'hiding' stuff that really doesn't need to be hidden. App metadata and tombstones that are easily removed on Android get 'stuck' on apple unless you do a full system upgrade, which often just makes it worse.
>you could buy them, or download raw files like NIN stuff and edit them in Garageband to make great looping ring tones without the vocals
holy shit are you retarded?
Your solution to "iphones can't drag & drop music files into ringtones" is "download raw files and then edit them in garageband"?
wow
>now you're just being silly. this is on a phone? you don't have a laptop? why are you compiling on a computer with a shit processor anyway?
Because (1) my phone's processor is top of the line, and more powerful even than some laptop processors, and (2) it's more streamlined to make android apps on android natively. Iphone users wouldn't know this, of course.

android is more limiting and unpolished then an iPhone as every review since the original phone would point out.

I know. Apple can't possibly keep up with the sheer amount of features and usability that Android comes with right out of the box.

Buying anything other than a Windows phone is a reactionary act: you are choosing not to buy a Windows phone for some reason (spoken or unspoken): either because you hate Microsoft, or are trying to spend wisley, or harbor philosophical beliefs of what your technology should allow you to do, etc. No one chooses to buy an iPhone or Android or what have you (obviously). There's always some psychological turmoil lurking just beneath the surface of that decision.

But not just at the time of purchase. No! Then you constantly need to bother your friends and family about how imessage is way better than Facebook Messanger (please use it, guys?). Or that customisable widgets are totally worth the, its 2016 nobody ACTUALLY gives a fuck, that's why you bought a phone right? To customize the icons and not be socially ostracized. So cool you guys. You're isolated in a cul-de-sac of your own making, but at least you can pretty it up. Constant, ongoing psychologically-draining drama basically.

Buying an Windows phone, by comparison, has no shadowy subtext. Windows 10 is synthesis, anything else is antithesis.
