    But the owners of these phones also don't care. They just want cheap because they know they can replace with another cheap phone if they have problems. They see the tech world through entirely different lenses than we do. Cheap junk is "good enough" for them.

    They are not vintage phones that are still in use. They are new, but low quality phones.
    Where does Facebook say these are new phones?? You're claiming Facebook was only interested in NEW phones, so how new? 6 months new, 30 days new? That doesn't even make sense. :no:

    You apparently don't know many teenage Facebook users. At least that what I'll blame that silly statement on.

    the problem is that you think having old specs is a bad thing - it isn't. I would be very happy with a phone made in 2011 as long as it's capable of browsing, facebooking, texting, and capturing. Not everyone needs the latest features.

    No.  If Samsung sold as many Galaxy S3, S4, S5, Note3, and Note4 as they said they did than 66% of the phones would not be from 2011.


     

    how so?  Remember that Samsung in 2013 sold about 2 high end phones for every 3 iPhones sold.  But the Android share is like 2 or 3 times the iOS share, which means that for every high end phone Samsung sold, there were several low end crap phones sold.

    Yeah, yeah, yeah...I get it, Apple and iOS rules. But all of these articles are beginning to define the term ad nauseam. How about a little moderation? I love Apple just as much as the next Apple-loving AI member but is anyone else with me on this?

    It's yet another hit piece by DED that is working as intended by bringing out the worst in the folks and getting the sycophants foaming at the mouth.

    I'm beginning to realize that around here it's far more important to hate everything non-apple than it is to simply like apple.

    If you don't let the hate flow through you, then you are evidently doing it wrong at AI.

    Are you so delusional that you actually believe that an extremist liberal calling somebody a racist pig online is going to hurt them in any way? <img class=" src="http://forums-files.appleinsider.com/images/smilies//lol.gif" />

     

    I'm sorry, but liberal race cards are all played out, forever. They are no longer valid and past their expiration date.

     

    Didn't you guys learn anything from the recent massive, historic asskicking? Apparently not.:smokey:

     

    Keep digging for more cards. Shuffle good, or perhaps get a new deck.:D

    Many more truly ignorant posts out there than this.  In fact he clarified it to the people in his area, and nothing he said indicated that all Android people were like this, but rather these sorts were all Android people.

     

    Phone use does not indicate your political leanings.   I know extreme liberals who use Apple, as well as libertarian types, and extra conservatives who use Apple products and iPhones.

    Thank you!

     

    And yes, it was merely my own observations of what I see in my area. 

     

    I only see what I see with my own two eyes. Apparently, certain people have a problem with what my eyes see, and that is not my problem, but theirs. I tend to trust my own eyes, and not the make believe world of what a few fanatics and ideologues might believe.

    Agreed. All sorts of people use Apple, that is what I have always been saying. It would be crazy to think anything else, as Apple sells hundreds of millions of devices.

    wtf are you trying to talk about? You clearly don't use Facebook, because the most inane stupid comments on anyone's feed come from under-educated conservatives. They easily get the most real estate on the site unless you hide/ignore all of them.

    No, in my feed, it is the over confident, uber ignorant liberals that get most of the space.

    I'm not on Facebook, and never have been, as I stated previously. I luckily don't have to read any Facebook posts ever.

     

    I am talking about the ownership of Facebook and they are uber liberals, especially Zuckerberg.

    No its not.  The article is based on FACTS.  Unlike the DOZENS of articles every day that bashes Apple that is made up of rumors and out right lies.

     

    Again if you don't want to hear the truth go to another website.


    No, it's not like reporting the Patriots won again because football is only a 4-5 months-out-of-the-year sport. No matter what the facts are it's like beating a dead horse. If this kind of "reporting" doesn't get spread to the same media outlets that publish the Apple bashing, it's basically only for our infotainment and does nothing to correct the Apple bashing that the general public sees. I use the word infotainment because this story isn't quite as educational like a lot of  DED's other articles, which I certainly enjoy reading and learning at the same time. 

     

     

    Your views and comments certainly come across as extreme sometimes and your numerous (beating a dead horse) GT Advanced comments are a clear example of that. I've been an AI member for 5 years more than you and I'll be a member for many years after you lose interest, so why don't you try to exercise some moderation, also, rather than telling me to go blow (which I view as extreme). I didn't bash Apple nor did I really bash DED. I was just vocalizing an observation and my intent was one that SolipsismY clearly picked up on. Chill out, dude.

     

    Perhaps next time I should use a smiley face?
