I had switched to android to see how it compared to the iphone os, i have had a captivate now less than a day, and to this point i cannot see how the android os is better? it is surely not as intuitive as the apple os. There is too much searching to figure out functions on the phone and system. I can understand how people do not like apple because of its closed OS, but i am hoping that someone can enlighten me, because i am going to return this phone and get an iphone once again.
I try to play some streaming video form a website and and it use's flash and windows, i cannot get it to play? Will this OS play flash content? Will it play windows based video whether streaming or not?
every OS has its issues but, aside from the closed app issue with apple, i am not seeing the beauty of this OS over the Iphone?
can someone again enlighten me?
The Android is not for everyone. If you're not geeky, then you should stay with the iPhone. iPhones lack customizability but that is good for folks who aren't geeky
(Nothing wrong with that!!)
The Android are for people who are geeky and more technically inclined. Just as the Android is not for you, the iPhone would not be for me!
If you usually have your friends/sibs/progeny set up your home computer for you, the iPhone is better suited to you. If you do your own computer set up, you'll eventually come to love the Android OS.
Take it back and get an iPhone. You will be happier. But DO NOT feel bad about that. Android is not for everyone.
(Not for my BF, he really doesn't like it, but I told him if he wanted another phone, he'll need to do the research himself and figure out what to get and set it up himself. I'll only help him with the Captivate. Don't want to learn his phone and mine, too.)
