So I read this article just now at Droid-Life: The Difference Between The Top Ten iPhone & Android Applications - Droid Life: A Droid Community Blog And after a few minutes, I posted this response as my thoughts on it: "This is the way I see it: Apple's whole appeal is simplicity. People love i-products because they are reliable in that you'd have to try really hard to break it. It's the reason I bought a Macbook for college. I can't let my technical curiosity compromise my 5 page term paper. Everything is locked down and goes through Apple, so it eliminates flaws and issues caused by 3rd party apps not approved by them. Apple won't make it easier to jailbreak their phones. Why? although it would make them more competitive in Android's playing field, it would compromise what they did to gain such a fan-base in the first place. Android on the other hand, is more for the technically minded individual. We can root and modify the phone to our heart's content. We can make the phone TRULY our own. This is why I love Android, and why I've stuck with it. There are times when ROMs or themes may slow down the performance or battery life of the phone, but you know what? We can FIX that! Android was made to be modified and played with. This explains why so many of the top 10 list is fully of utility apps to help modify the phone. In conclusion. It's all about what the person needs. Need a phone that won't quit humming along no matter what hell you put through it's software, but will never be any different from when you got it out of the box? Go iPhone. If you want a phone that you can make your OWN, customize, and modify because...well, you f**kin can, even if sometimes curiosity will slow it down, and not every modification is an "improvement"? Go Android. 'Nuff said " I feel like all the iHating and Android trolling (from BOTH sides) has subdued now that Android has made itself a key player in the market, and not just a small community. I don't see as many "iPhone SUCKS" and "Android blows" comments anymore, which IMO, is a GOOD thing! I find that each end of the market deserves it's due respect, but a year ago, I felt like I was a minority in that opinion here. Now that things have cooled over from that time, what is everyone's opinion on my thoughts, and the differences between Apple and Android?
