Hmmm, on your Iphone5? (Wrong thread, maybe?)

I have an Android. Galaxy II S X. Woman has a III. I see almost no difference.

I like my android a great deal - and from using Iphones from other folks I have no idea in the wide wide world why you would buy one - other than having a large library on itunes already.

As much as I love my Android - I'm looking hard at the new Blackberry stuff. Its all pretty slick.

Check out the S4. I think they just upped the stakes on blackberry a bit.

I had to change my phone from S2 to S3 (figured I might as well upgrade).Truth is the S3 also has a bigger screen which makes swiping better but yet the one thing that my S3 lacks is multi language. Yes... I have french... english and korean but no italian like my S2. wtf!

I called samsung support and te guy said that's life! :problem:
I found some apps (not free) but I had to manually still add a lot of words myself.

Another great thing about the s2 is the wallpaper which scrolled a unique image as you moved. S3 repeats the image for each scree making the wall paper choice a more difficult game.

S4... I doubt I'll need it, I am more oriented on giving Google my money for the Google Glass. Could be the next smartphone.

My opinion is completely the oppposite. The interface on my iphone is simple and consistent, the interface on my Nexus 7 is quite frankly a mess, I have to look up how to do basic things. Its a device I have to intentionally pick up and use, unlike my phone which I'll intuitively grab.

No doubt Apple will start chucking a load of random crap any old how onto the iphone now with Steve Jobs no longer being around to exert non-committee control. The golden age of the smartphone was the 4 and 4S.

The new IOS 7 for the Iphone seemed a bit annoying, at first, but it seems to work pretty well, once you get used to it.

I like IOS7 actually. I tried an Android phone and I hated it. I love the 5C.

Doing things Android did already though... just saying it was actually about time they implemented those things.

Maybe that is true. But I still like the operating system. I did have to look up how to do one thing, though. But in general the best feature of the Iphone is still intact: you don't have to read the manual. (I believe that a program made for ordinary consumers that requires you to read a manual is a bad program).
