Bigger Screen but Apps that only use half the Display (aka Widgets) ???
Implement Vertical Sync, Triple Buffering and "Touch Responsiveness" then throw dodeca-core graphics processors at the problem ???
Implement features that are inconsistent ???
Implement multi-tasking then increase battery size 70% ???

etc.
etc.
etc.

And a fan of Android would list all the things he has issues with in iOS. Everyone has opinions but both Operating Systems have their + & -. To say iOS has no faults means you're blind.

Nice strawman. 

 

By 'nice', everyone understands that we don't actually mean 'nice', right?

LOL. Sounds to me like I've insulted something that's emotionally very meaningful for you.

Get over it. It's just a software platform.

I am still puzzled that you think I have 'disgust' for something that I really don't care about much (except for the reasons, IP-related, already stated) and, at worst, think is a complete waste of my time to experience.

In case it makes you feel better: I might or might not be 'disgusted' if I experienced it, but as of now, I am not.

Ah, the power of association! Made you think of Indian food, huh? I wonder why....... (In case you were hoping to evoke some type of reaction, I am not particularly emotionally charged up about any food).

So in your eyes iOS has 0 faults and is the perfect OS?

You know how to use examples of a straw man fallacy and yet you don't seem to know what it means.

I probably saw posts where you talked about IP infringement and over time extrapolated that to mean a general dislike.  I'm not sure.  I also thought that by italicizing "experience" you were implying that you took issue with my characterization of your opinion regarding the experience but not other aspects.  Anyway, I think we've discussed this topic as much as it needs to be discussed, so I won't drag it out further.

Just came across this: within a few weeks of introduction, the iPhone 5 alone bested Galaxy S3 in terms of web traffic volume: http://news.cnet.com/8301-13579_3-57531285-37/iphone-5-traffic-volume-already-surpasses-samsungs-galaxy-s3/

You just backed me up, 56% iPhone 5, 44% Galaxy S3, that's quite close. It's not like 10% Galaxy 90% iPhone. Then you'd have a point.

Except that the iPhone 5 was only a few weeks old while the SG3 was 5-6 months old. I'm sure it skews favorably towards the iPhone 5 now.

That previous 56% to 44% chart from Oct 2012, was updated in Feb 2013 and the results are now a numerically far closer 51% to 49%

 

 

 

Nevertheless, a lot of us here (on all sides) are still unsure how the number of views of Chitaka ads is useful for comparisons between ... well, anything... without knowing the websites involved, which OS sees more ads via web than through apps, how often the browsers involved reload a page to increment the view counters, the number of ads shown per page due to screen size, etc.

 

These kinds of reports are simply ads for the ad network.

Here is an updated version of mobile browser share from Chitika.

That's like going to car rental and renting whatever they offer you at your budget.

I love both Apple and Samsung, it will be iPhone 5 for my wife and my mother, and GS3 for my kids and GS4 for myself. Or take what ever I can.
