overhyped? Try underhyped. The iPhone is the best phone. Why would anybody want a huge giant brick on their face. With the iPhone you can use it with 1 hand try that with a galaxy phone without breaking it. And don't have to worry about viruses with the iPhone. Or the phone crashing. And where do you bring your android phone when its not working right? There is no Android store. I just go to the Apple store and they take care of everything. I forget to get insurance for my iPhone I just pay 200 bucks for a replacement from the apple store. What about and android phone? Pay 600 bucks for a replacement? No thank. iPhone rules and Android wishes they could even compete.

Yeah except they are a million times more reliable than android devices. I guess that is what you get when you use cheap crappy parts to build a phone.

Just because Apple treats their customers like kings doesn't mean you have to be jealous.

How does Google treat their customers when they go to the google store with an issue? Oh wait they don't have google stores. If you have a problem with a phone there is no one for you to go to.

Jealous? AAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHA oh man, you should be a comedian you know? I have owned many, many android devices, and I have never had an Issue. I'm what you would call 'educated' and I know how to solve problems that my device has, which is a very, very rare occurence. Having to go to a store with an issue is a huge hassle, and if my phone has an issue so large, or so bad that I can't solve it myself, then I would consider the phone garbage.

I have never had the Google application crash on my phone, ever, and I have never had the play store application crash on my phone ever, either.

I have had the app store on my iPod crash before, and I have had other apps crash my iPod, which runs iOS 7.0.4, but, my Galaxy S II HD LTE has never, ever had the app store, or google play store crash. Mind you I haven't had it for too long, but it works leaps and bounds better than any phone I have ever used before.

You should be better informed. The Galaxy S II HD LTE sold by Bell does not have a physical button along the bottom of it. Also, the S II HD LTE is a totally different device than the S II. Different processor, screen, ram, gpu, etc. You can't compare the two phones. It's NOT a GS II Skyrocket sold by at&t, as that does not have an HD screen. Totally different phone.

Thats ok. Any Galaxy s II phone is a piece of trash. Hence they moved on from that model to make moderately better devices.

Lol your special darkstar. I sell phones for a living. Every phone has problems. The iPhone is not excluded. You can go ahead and keep believing Apple is something special but the fact is there are WAY better phones on the market. Is the iPhone a good piece of hardware? Absolutely. I usually push it to the less tech savvy people. Personally I'll take a nexus device any day.

How it is built is more important. Granted, Apple does do a good job on the fit and finish of their iPhones... I won't deny that... but what do you think of the materials in the iPhone 5c? I mean... plastic iPhone? I just have to ask.

I really don't have a problem with plastic phones, anyway. I know some people say they do, and that is okay. It's their choice. However, I have come to know that if you take care of ...

Really so how are you going to fix your phone running slow everyday. Remove the battery all the time. You phone shouldn't do that. Its defective. Do have to worry about that with an iPhone.

Obviously you don't know what good customer service is. People are so used to be treated like walmart customers that when the customer service reps are rude to you people you are all used to it by now.

Well I deserved to be treated better than a walmart customer. I paid a lot of money for a device that should work and if it doesn't work then the company that sold me something defective then they should fix that issue. If by some small chance my phone is defective Apple will fix my issue in a nice and kind way and not make me wait hours in line or...

The idea that a phone running its slow but native programming properly is a defect is ridiculous. I used smartphones back in the day before any of them were fast... so does that make my old Nokia 9300 defective? No, it does not. An Android device nowadays can run circles around my Nokia E75 I once had, so does that make the E75 defective? Still no.

I guess your Mac Store is the only benefit? And if people go there it's because they don't know how to use their phone, I have a lot of friend's that are apple user's and they never have to go to a store because they know how to use their phone. Why would I need a Google Store? Cheap Materials? Have you seen an HTC One? Do you know what an HD screen is (Don't even get me started with Full HD)? Do you know what Multitasking is? NFC?

Anyways.

Wait you are trying to use the HTC one as an example? You mean the same HTC ONE that has the worst camera in the world. The one that has the purple,red,blue tint in low light situations? Laughing Laughing Laughing Cool story, bro.

An HD screen? You mean on those cartoony Samsung phones? Or the inaccurate colors on the HTC phones?

NFC? Why would I ever use that? Do you ever use that useless feature?

iSheep: The HTC has a good camera, not the best, I agree, but still better than the one on the iPhone, which is, by the way, made by Sony. The iPhone's camera is far from being the best camera available.

Let me tell you that the iPhone Retina Display, made by LG, is not even HD. Apple's been refusing to increase screen resolution... talk about being treated like a "king"! lol

Multitasking... obviously you don't understand the definition of mutlitasking, which is ok, because Apple changes the terms to mislead its customers. Placing a program in the background, or on "stand by" while running another is NOT multitasking! Being able to run 2 apps side-by-side IS. Another feature the iPhone lacks and that Apple has refused to adopt.

NFC,...

Really cause every review raves about how much better the iPhone camera is compared to every other one. The HTC ONE camera is defective. There is a tint to it in low light situations.

The screen looks fantastic to every iPhone user.

There is no nexus phone that has that kind of multitasking. You can't run apps side by side on Google's android.

You still haven't shown any examples of a use for NFC. You said its revolutionary but nobody uses it.

Totally untrue. Apple takes Sony cameras and implement them on their phone, what makes you think Sony will build a better camera for a competitor? To be fair, Sony phones have bee rated with the best cameras out there, along with the beautiful Nokia cameras. Haven't tried one? then avoid making a fool of yourself by commenting about something you don't have knowledge of.

640 x 1136 the pixels are so small that you can't even see them. And yet the colors and the warmth of the colors are more accurate then any other phone. It doesn't matter how many pixels you have its how well you display them. Just like in cameras. More pixels doesn't mean better camera..

Let's analyze your claims:

"The iPhone is the best phone."
- Opinion, has no merit

"Why would anybody want a huge giant brick on their face. With the iPhone you can use it with 1 hand try that with a galaxy phone without breaking it."
- Let's talk about all phones, not just Galaxies. There's more than one size, which I may add is great since as human beings, we all have different hand sizes.

you don't have to worry about viruses with the iPhone.
- Because there is no such thing as viruses for Mac and the entire Google Play must be crawling with them. Google has the same quality control as the App Store.

Or the phone crashing.

In the United States, yes... but only if you are dealing with individual models of phones, and not taking into account the entire iOS ecosystem versus the entire Android ecosystem. Outside of the US, it is a very different story in most places.

No because jailbreaking an iPhone is using it in a way it isn't intended for. Its like using a flatscreen tv to snowboarding. Yes technically you can use that tv for snowboarding but you shouldn't. It wasn't made for that. Just like the iPhone wasn't made to jailbreak.
