    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.


     

    I think it's more the way you, in a bad light, 'colorfully' paint those who use Android, always leaving out shades of gray. I live in one of the most affluent parts of NJ where the CEOs of Verizon, Square, J&J and many sports figures, as a short list, make residence.  While there are more iPhone users, there are certainly a lot of Android users, also, and income bracket has nothing to do with it. You often get too personal and descriptive, saying things that should remain as thoughts in your own mind.....and because of this, those comments make you come across like a bigot.

    Were you unaware that [@]Apple ][[/@] lives in NYC? Manhattan if I remember correctly. He's surrounded by liberals. He gets the NYT home delivered just so one less liberal reads it. :lol:

    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: .

    Nobody said the phones are all new. You just don't understand what was being discussed.

    The point is that those 66% of "2011 era or worse" Android phones are not actually +3 years old, they just have +3 year old functionality. Obviously.

    So does the iPhone 5c that Apple still sells, so what is the point?

    The 5c has three year old functionality?

    No, that graphic shows representative devices of Facebook's Year Class system, not the most popular device of the year.

    Ohhhhh... gotcha!

    Thanks!

    "Facebook is made up of Uber Liberals! Zuckerberg is one of the biggest around!"

     

    I guess that's why Zuckerberg is friends with Uber Liberal, Chris Christie.  Oh, wait.

    Chris Christie is not a conservative.

    How is that relevant?  Liberal is not a place holder for Democrat.  There are conservative Democrats and  there are Liberal Republicans.

    How are you defining that?

     

    The 5c was released last year.  If you want to say it is a reskinned 5, that was 2 years ago.

    I'm proposing a new game: guess the author by reading the headline. I scored a point on this one!

    I score every time Dilger spews another Android slur piece onto the internet. Sadly it doesn't make up for choking on the verbal dysentery that he shoves down our throats on a regular basis.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again: Dilger's posts are a disease on this website. He also lacks basic intellectual hygiene, given the various sock puppet accounts he posts from in support of them.

    A typical Android user complaint about the latest iPhones is all about how they're basically 2012 spec phones. As it turns out ... most Android users are still stuck in 2011 so what does it all matter?

    Yes, you're correct, I miscounted. Oops

    How so, when the vast majority of Android/Facebook users don't live in the US.

    I'm an Apple fan, but the amount of fanboyism on here is ridiculous. You don't have to hate other products to love your iPhone.

    How the HELL did freaking politics get into this topic and completely derail the discussion?!

    ENOUGH ABOUT PARTISAN POLITICS already!

    This is a tech site, talk about tech, and leave the politics at the door!
