  iOS 7 will address the notification and quick settings complaint to a degree. I also understand some people simply prefer Android for the reasons you listed and others not mentioned and I don't see it ever being wiped out. But I hope you would also acknowledge that many people on Android chose their phone for nothing more than the screen size. Most iPhone and Android phone owners are very basic users that rarely make major changes. They use the stock keyboard and stock...
When Apple releases a larger display iPhone I think their share in the U.S. could easily reach 60%. Right now Android controls the low end market where there is little to no profit to be made which is not worth competing in for Apple. They also control the larger screen market since Apple doesn't even compete in that sector. I am hoping the reason for the delay is due to getting IGZO ready by ironing out any bugs and making sure it can ship in quantity. It is astounding...
I average 20Mbps and often higher and get full coverage bars wherever I go. Don't condemn and entire network because you get poor coverage where you live. And if it is that bad all you have to do is switch to someone else. No one has a gun to your head forcing you to stay. I have no idea what you mean by "slow meteor". Verizon should screen their online shills better that inevitably show up on any Sprint story. 
  I am 26 days into my monthly cycle and I have uploaded 1GB of data and downloaded 9GB of data on cellular. I have used 1,536 talk minutes. I am guessing that would be a lot more than the $50 I pay now in Europe for that level of usage. I never like to use public wifi since it is insecure if I can avoid it. Gas here is currently $3.19 a gallon where I live.   Cupertino may well be one of the most expensive cities to live. It is part of the San Francisco/San Jose...
  I pay $50 a month on Sprint and get unlimited talk minutes, unlimited text, and unlimited data which includes LTE. I often exceed 10 or even 15GB of data. Nearly all plans here now include unlimited talk minutes. I have many European friends and I have looked at the websites to see their plans, for my usage I would be paying far more in Europe than here in the U.S.    How much do you guys pay for gas? Food? Clothes? Electricity? And so many other items that are often 3...
With all of Softbank's money along with all that old 800MHz Nextel spectrum now shut down and being repurposed for Sprint along with the huge amount of Clearwire 2.5GHz spectrum Sprint is poised to do very well the next few years and give AT&T and Verizon a run for their money. Unlimited LTE with far cheaper plans is a big incentive. Most of the lost subscribers were the last remaining Nextel customers and good riddance. That was a match made in hell and possibly the...
I agree. I have used waze but never reported speed traps or accidents or really anything. I did report a few errors on Apple maps a year ago but they still have not been corrected.  I don't think you can reply on user reporting. A better way would be for Apple maps to just monitor your speed and other data automatically and make smart adjustments. But still allow for manual reporting as well for those kind souls that actually do report problems. 
  The camera and the display on the phone are completely independent and have nothing to do with one another. What you are saying is really ludicrous. Now you could say that photos viewed on an S4 might not "look right" but the actual picture taken from the camera then sent to an iPhone will look fine. There is nothing wrong with the camera on the S4 and in fact it is superior to the one on the iPhone 5. And this is coming from a guy with an iPhone 5. 
You are a somebody just like me. But like I said you are here on a tech forum so people like you and me don't really represent the general public very well. Most people that don't frequent sites like this have no idea what AMOLED, DPI, color gamut, or anything else means. All they know is the size of the display and that that it says 1080P since they recognize that term from their TV's. That is the point I am trying to make is that non-tech folk which is 99% of the buying...
I have checked. My best friend has an S4 and I have an iPhone 5. I have spent a lot of time looking and using his phone just to check it out. I have done side by side comparisons. Both of of us play a game called Modern War and opened up that app side by side. It looked gorgeous on the S4 as it did on my iPhone 5. But because the display was just so much larger you can see nearly your whole base on the S4 but you have to scroll and zoom a lot on the iPhone to see your...
