    I reckon Apple would rule anyway if anyone could actually afford to buy their products. ;)

    After using Android smartphones the past few years and recently switching to Apple iPhone 4S, I can honestly say that the iPhone is vastly superior to any Android device I have ever used....and it's not even close.

    There is no comparison IMO.

    R.I.P. Steve

    I only wish I could afford to be an Apple fanboy.

    With Android selling 2 to 1 over iPhone, not likely to happen.

    I read somewhere that the magin behind Steve and Apple was that he could make you spend 10 bucks on a $5 dollar bill with some glitter on it... which is actually true.
    Now, Android has the power of a huge development staff behind it, while Apple has a geat marketing team. There's no comparison, one is good at selling you technology, the other one is good at developing technology.

    Glad you're enjoying your iPhone. Care to say more about why it's superior? I currently have an android OS phone and it meets my needs just fine. My only experience with iOS is on the Mac and it doesn't make sense to me, but since I'm a long time Windows user that's probably to be expected. If you can do everything you want to with a device in a way that is clear and efficient it's not likely that anything else will seem "vastly superior". And in case it's not clear note I'm not invested. I'll happily switch to what I feel is better down the road.

    IT's certainly better than Android in terms of security. In terms of what I want to do with my phone I guess they're about equal. I hav ea rooted android but I don't really need it all that much - I mostly just use it as a phone now. I just have root for overclocking.

    It's certainly more customizable. I just don't care too much about that and I think it's the same for a lot of people.

    If you want customizable OS, yep, Android's for you. If you want something simple and secure iOS.

    I can not customize my phone and still make use of applications. The two are 100% entirely different.

    I dare say Apple won't "destroy" anything now, with exception of whatever plans Steve left behind (which by all reports is quite a few plans). Call me a pessimist, but I think the "magic" of Apple died with Steve. I see Tim Cook as a businessman, not an innovator. Hopefully I'm wrong.

    Not as good as selling it.
    I kinda disagree, I mean there's been cases on both ways. They took something from others, just as others had taken stuff from them.

    Literally irrelevant. There could be 1million android devices. The operating system is still selling.
