Re: Stuff it's made of
Actually, despite your obvious sarcasm, they do. Protest all you like, but NFC will soon be as essential as bluetooth. This is one of the directions technology is going in. And phones that don't have it are seriously gimped.
>> If I have to pay 700 dollars for the device it better be built with quality in mind.
Ya, and quality devices should have NFC.
>>I have the HTC ONE. I paid a lot of money for it and expect it to have a quality not c*** feel to it.
But that's entirely subjective. I tested both the HTC One and Galaxy S IV in the Sprint store and found the quality of the S IV's build to be superior. Not everyone will agree on what a "quality feel" is. But lack of features like accessible battery, memory card slot, and NFC is not subjective. The device either has those things or it doesn't.
>>And how often to iPhone's have battery issues? Its pretty rare if at all.
That's an outright lie. Every iPhone battery will fail. Furthermore every mobile device's battery will fail. Our current battery technology has a 100% failure rate.
>>Memory. Backup everything to your computer. Itunes can back up everything through wifi when you are at home and everything is safe and secure.
Why insist that everyone use itunes? I absolutely hate the software and wouldn't allow it to exist on any device I own. I'm perfectly capable of backing up my own data, and don't particularly trust Apple with it.
Besides, memory has absolutely nothing to do with backing up your data. What you're talking about is storage, not memory. Try to keep them straight.
>>And all this is coming from someone who hates the iPhone
Why? It sounds like the perfect device for you.
