    Do you guys loathe the iPhone? The way it sits on its high throne and grimaces at everything else below it, the way reviewers constantly praise a phone which, despite everything, sucks at being a phone?

    Well then I would be really interested in finding out why you do! Send in your comments and lets get cracking ;)

    It promotes interactivity. As the iPhone is a common talking point, all people whom genuinely use Android chose Android because they didn't want to join the iPhone band wagon.

    In all honestly, I never have ALWAYS gone on about the iPhone - it is just always a talking point at the tip of smart phone users tongues.

    This thread will also be used by myself as opinionated market research for my own website :) if you check out some iPhone forums, I also have threads on Android loaths.

    Genuinely, people are very happy to comment on threads and be contributory to the content - that is what forums are all about - community. In general, I have seen other users who have more iPhone threads than myself and so am sorry to find out that mine are the only ones you have seen.

    :)

    In response to your initial and first comment, I did explain why I have done this thread. Perhaps that was not satisfactory?

    In defence to your second comment, how can anything sound childish when typed out? Other than being typed terribly with the typo's of a noob - to which I never do?

    Also, why get personal? Calling stuff sad is your opinion, would you walk up to somebody in a street and tell them they are sad? Going to a thread and dissing its content is one thing, but calling my methods sad? You do not even have an Android phone yet < see left, and are waiting on a Nexus. And so despite everything, you have nothing contributory to say within any thread yet.

    Well done pre-nexus user, your first posts have been slandering.

    Why can't people just accept other people's preferences?

    Grow up, OP. This is pathetic.

    iPhone band wagon? The iPhone is a good phone, like it or not. If you believe it's just a fad, you are simply kidding yourself.

    "They do it so it makes it ok if I do it!!"

    This isn't causing the community to come together, it's causing arguments. And if it is causing the community to come together, it is doing so through hate. Needless hate. Pointless hate.

    "They do it so it makes it ok if I do it!!"

    I re-itarate: grow up.

    Your whole post is full of things that are mis-informed. I do not think the iPhone is a fad > 'band wagon' is a figure of speech, and means 'did not follow'. And who is they? You really do not make sense.

    As for preferences I used to have an iPhone 3G -you remind me of somebody who bursts into a conversation half way through who has no clue what it is about when referring to me.

    Usually when people jump on the "band wagon", it means they are following a fad.

    They =

    "I have seen other users who have more iPhone threads"

    Maybe jumping on on conversations in real life is awkward, but on an internet forum you can read the topic prior to the current post.

    You remind me of a person who hates the iPhone because he thinks it's too popular, and he wants to be unique.

    Judging by the general forum mood. I would stop researching here. Chances are your going to get Flamed such as every comment in this topic.

    The Iphone is just another piece of hardware. I don't like it, but thats because of the company not the device.

    I don't have anything against the OP or this thread but why is the iPhone mentioned so much in an Android Forum. I mean it's crazy. People either come on this thread to say how much better the iPhone is than Android or how much better Android is than iPhone. Who cares, can we concentrate on Android in the Android forums!

    This thread is being closed for the following reason:

    a) It has only been started to provoke an argument
    b) It doesn't have anything new, intelliglble or even reasoned in it's content, just "I hate the iPhone, do you?"
    c) It certainly isn't android news
    d) It certainly isn't offical either
