Why I prefer the iPhone over ANDROID

first off I do work in cellular, and I am very aware that I make crap commission wise selling iPhone. I totally understand where people come from when they hate this phone for that reason. But there sure seems to be a lot of hate aimed at this phone and I see a lot of threads about why android is better.

I decided I would make a thread about why I wouldnt choose Android over iPhone

1. I do not like the look and feel of Android OS. To me Android does not have a polished look to it well thought out interface. The icons all look very amateur in comparison to iPhone. It also just doesnt seem to run as smoothly all the time.

The concept of wireless charging is becoming a standard feature in flagship Smartphones. The latest Smartphones from Samsung, Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge features wireless charging concept that is compatible with both standards of wireless charger and because of this it is garnering more attention from the consumers across the world.

A Samsung SPH-M320 shows "Emergency mode" only... also refuses to be shutted down. It shows that it's related to Sprint when you open it (not on the screen).

It was working ok until a few weeks ago but suddenly it's showing signs of trouble.

After having searched on the web for info on cellphones I learned of something called rooting; I've given this idea some consideration and since the phone is now de-activated but still with a considerable amount of MBs available inside I want to try this thing of rooting and using it later as a kind of memory stick, just for fun. I'm aware that there might be other more useful things to do with it, but for starters I want to experiment with it, if at all possible.

Now that I've established what I have, in what condition & my immediate pur...

Cellphone addiction?

"The average college student uses a smartphone for about nine hours each day.

That’s longer than many of those students spend sleeping. In fact, such extended cell phone use shows that the technology could become an addiction, according to a new study. An addiction is a type of uncontrolled and unhealthy habit.

It’s well known that people can become addicted to drugs, such as alcohol, narcotics and the nicotine in cigarettes. What’s not so well known: “People can be addicted to behaviors,” says James Roberts. He’s a marketing professor at Baylor University in Waco, Texas. Roberts also was the lead author of the new study. It appears in the August Journal of Behavioral Addictions.

Some cell phone users show the same sym...
