    I'd love to live in your world, where Apple invented everything and everything was invented by Apple.

     

    It's just not true though is it

    SHUT. UP. Read the words you’re quoting. If you’re wondering why nearly everyone here thinks you’re a troll, that’d be reason number three.

    Android developers couldn't have "stolen" the idea from Cydia iPhone jailbreakers since the notification you remember came out several months after it was demoed on Android in the intro video from Nov. 2007 (about 2 min, in). It doesn't matter in any event. IMHO neither iOS nor Android "stole" from the other but both are better because of the other.

    Wow, so much fanboyisme in this post....

    1) Out of the box, the Galaxy S4 total storage doesn't exceeds the iPhone, the opposite is true.

    2) Android devices are locked down until you root the phone, like any other iOS and WP8 phones.

    3) Unlike most Android phones, there is no third party bloat ware to take care of on iOS

    4) You know many critics said the same things about the non-expandable storage of the iPod, 11 years later, most SD bases MP3 player as disappear from market today.

     Like you said in an earlier post, you need some hacking and third party apps for using external storage likes the internal one. This is not a solution for most non-tech savvy Android users

    The average person just wants to use the device. Look at other devices and how many accessories do you really own for it? Nintendo Wii/U Xbox? The former has fixed storage and the SD card slot while the latter uses USB connected hard drives but you can't just buy a cheap drive on your own, but you can use 8GB of any USB connected storage for it.

    Like I think it was a mistake to not have a microSDXC slot on the iPhone/iPad but most people never buy more than one card during the lifetime of the device, so just buying the amount of storage you need from the start is still the better option. The removable storage is a necessity on professional content creation devices like DSLR's and Professional Grade Video cameras (eg RED,) because you'll wear out the internal storage pretty darn quick as you repeatedly create and erase large files, and you can't monopolize the hardware that is needed for content capture for transferring it to the computer.

    So it's not a huge loss to not have the SD cards, but I think we need to quit fooling ourselves and drop the 16GB models, when 25% of the space is taken by the operating system.

    Mobile networks are absolutely salivating at the concept of cloud services because they plan to make a mint on the overage charges, but really the high price of wireless data just ensures that the networks remain underutilized while users use WiFi at home and at the Office, and only use the mobile data while on the road for things like Google Maps, not streaming radio/video.

    OK... I stand corrected.

    Thanks for the link.

    BTW.. what a stark contrast to what eventually made it to market AND for lack of a better word to describe the quality of the presentation, "amateur" comes to mind and certainly not what you would expect from a technological leader like Google... :smokey:
