While he may come across as an Apple evangelist, he also gives credit where credit is due and backs up essentially all of his claims about Apple and doesn't hide the facts when competing smartphones exceed the performance or UI of Apple's products.
Correct me if I'm wrong but you, on the other hand, have only posted 'facts' based on personal usage of the plethora of CE devices you own. Never have I seen Solip post a photo of his own phone boasting about the longevity of battery life based on 'heavy use'. How is that, at all, a scientific or controlled test method? You are making a claim and backing it up with a vague and obtuse explanation and a picture of your phone screen.
From what I see, he's trying to point out to you, albeit with sarcasm, how silly your claims are because they're so baseless. Unprovoked? C'mon dude, you're asking for everything you're getting, IMO.
An objective observer
And therein lies your (among other's) biggest problem: Ridiculous Assumptions.
FACT: Never once did I claim that anything I posted was based upon "scientific or controlled test methods
" - NEVER.
The subject of battery life entered into the conversation when melgross
, AI's resident global moderator, replied to geekdad
's post with the following:"You're making this up, and it's easy to tell. The battery life isn't better than the 4S, it's worse. Not that untypical for Android phones which have been plagued with poor battery life in general."
(NOTE: since retracted)
I, in turn, informed him that my Galaxy Nexus is not "plagued with poor battery life
" as a result of my taking the time to properly optimize a few settings, even going so far as to "back up essentially all of [my] claims
" with actual pics of my very own device's battery usage screen.
All of this other over-the-top nonsense was concocted by yourself and SolipsismX
, and upon my providing the aforementioned pictorial evidence of the battery life I am (in fact) getting with my Galaxy Nexus under various usage scenarios, you two choose to resort to the usual childish mocking, negativity, and insults that have sadly become the hallmark of this environment, rather than merely accept that which was clearly presented as my real-world battery life experience with said device.
That you two, or anyone else, can't accept that there are those who's experiences, based upon "based on personal usage
", is beyond your own frame-of-reference, is your problem, and not a lack of integrity on my part.
Have A Nice Day.
