I just find it silly.  Apple haters nitpick everything and spend inordinate amounts of time whining and complaining on the Internet.

 

For the record, I don't own a smartphone.  I may be the last person on earth using a Nokia 5130.  No contract, pay per use, and spend $25 per quarter.

 

I don't see the need to spend $80 a month on a phone when I get very few calls.

No one is talking about Apple haters. I own an iPhone 5. We're talking about the shit construction of a phone that apparently can't withstand the rigors of something basic, like residing inside someone's pocket.

You sound like an Apple hater just from the tone of your posts.

It's not an actual problem, you guys. You apply pressure on that axis, the phone will either bend or break. Simple. Better to bend than break. I had my beloved Moto X in my back pocket at my previous job and I accidentally sat on it and it destroyed the LCD. That's far worse than bending.

 

 

I can't stand iOS but this is not a reason to hate on iPhones.

I'm still mystified at how anyone is hating on the iPhone. If anything, we're hating on their spotty QA process. The phones are gorgeous and iOS 8 made my sluggish iPad 3rd generation run like it was on iOS 6 again.

There are phones that are just as slim or damn near close and do not bend. I'm sure someone has said that already but I'm too blown away by what I'm witnessing in this thread to check.

 

Also, I've owned many ipods, own the current ipod touch and have had an iphone as well. No "hating" over here.

No bro, just iPhone hating.

Fuck. This all gave me a migraine. Did I type my shit out in Katakana or Kanji?

You're speaking in Cubs-speak so it all comes out as marble-mouthed gibberish.

And again, if the phone is bending, what does that say about the phones internals. What is the impact to the phones camera? Stuff like that I wonder about. I was set to get a 6+ this week, but now I'll wait and see. Worse comes to worse, I wait until next year for the 6+s.

And the new Note looks awesome as well, but I'm so embedded in that iOS environment with apps and such that it would be a pain to switch. Plus, I just want my phone to work without having to always fuck around with customization options.

No, I know what it means.  If you read his posts from yesterday to today he goes from whining about a bendable phone that he does not own to complaining about being locked into the app ecosystem as if that is a reason for not being able to change phones.  Last I checked almost every app has a version for both Android and iOS.

No, he didn't  Really. You fail hard at reading comprehension.  Reread *everything*, without being amped to jump on someone for not speaking of iPhones as if they're made by Unicorns and powered by rainbows.  He's mentioning a design flaw, saying, rightfully, that it'll prevent him from buying this model, and he doesn't want to change ecosystems.  Understandbile.  While there are both versions, Androids to require a bit more setup to get it how you want it, especially if you're used to iPhones.

 

Phones bending is a design flaw that's horrible.  There are thinner phones that don't do that.  I have one.

Not to mention that you have to re-buy all of those apps for an Android phone. I'm looking at 3 or 4 years of apps I would need to re-buy.

 

And at least with the antenna/grip of death issue, putting a protective band around the edge of the phone seemed to help. That was another design flaw that should have been caught during testing, but wasn't, and the it didn't get fixed until the next iterative release.
