What I like with this phone is it comes with Android. I could set home screen whatever I like with live wall papers, widgets, applications with fansy icons (you can also have icon packs) and whenever I like. This is huge advantage over Iphones.
Ok, Iphone 4S has improved Speaktoit Assistance, called Siri. You know, it is really fun talking to a Speaktoit lady on Android phone. It is pitty that you Iphone 4 users can not use Siri.
I know it is no Iphone 4S, however there is a fun application called Fake Iphone 4S. Pretty cool, really, just like IPhone 4s. But I get bored with it quite soon and come back to my own setting. I just use that application to show it to Apple users. Really fun, if you know what I mean.
Sure I had also battery issue, but I could google and do things to improve the battery life. I am a happy Sammy customer.
That's great that your wife has a Galaxy Fit, and I'm glad that she's happy with it.
And you won't see me wasting hours posting on Android/Samsung forums arguing pointlessly about her and her choice of phone.
However, the same courtesy is not being extended here.
I think you may have missed the point of my post. Conrod believes that 'freedom' is so very important to a cellphone, and I provided an example of how the iPhone provides everything that a user needs. I never said that other phones can't do the same.
You may wish to re-read some of the earlier posts so we can all get all the same page.
Customisation of the UI sounds like a real game-changer. We Apple fans have obviously been missing out on this huge advantage that you mention. Mind you, having seen the 'Toys Are Us' interface of Android, I can't say I blame you for wanting to change it occasionally...
That's great to hear that you're so impressed with Siri that you believe it to be superior to what's on Android. You obviously haven't heard the quote from Google's Andy Rubin: "I dont believe that your phone should be an assistant".
That's also great to hear that some Android users are so impressed with the iPhone that there is a 'fake iPhone 4S' app for it. It's a step in the right direction, I guess...
P.S. Don't mention the defects of your phone when you're trying to convince people that it's better.
