looking at this soley from my designer brain wants to know what would've had to be done differently to make people go "wow a completely new phone!"

I mean there are only so many ways to design a rectangle...

how is the white evo 4g any different from the galaxy s3 design wise aside from rounded corners? yet people consider them totally different and much improved vs the evo.


vs the iphone......it seems like all 4 phones are relatively similar but people consider the iPhones to be identical and the androids to be completely different...
I'll go ahead and try and answer this.

First things first:
- Apple fans hate on Android because it's (android) not polished enough, cluttered, overall feels unfinished. This is also my opinion, esp when comparing the android tablets I had, my iphone, and my gfs ipad2. Android does have some sweet features, which Apple doesn't offer in stock form, but a JB on an iphone makes any features android has available and more, even if Apple doesn't allow these.

- Android fans hate Apple because the "lack of features, widgets, its old news." This is a total bs argument. There are "widgets," just not in the same form. iPhones don't need widgets, but they do have tons of quick keys and shortcuts that are basically widgets, without the 'widget' icons or graphic on the screens.

Now, Apple bases designs on older iPhone designs and improves on them. They make them smaller, lighter, faster, etc each and every time. People expect a 'revolutionary design,' and I don't even know what that means lol.

There's more, I'll add it shortly, as I have to leave work for lunch.

Well yeah I guess, but that's like scrolling past a lot of cars now days, you can't tell them apart either. They are all evolving to one shape or design in many cases.

My biggest complaints with iOS:
1) No automatic updates on apps, have to put in your password on each update. Annoying as Eff on my iPad.
2) iTunes, it sucks, and I'd rather be able to just throw my media on my phone how I wish.

Starting with Android 4.1, a lot of what Andrei said about OS complaints are solved, it's really pretty good.
Big android complaint is they don't upgrade older phones enough...

Arguing that a JB fixed apples issues makes zero sense. Then arguing rooting a droid, putting on 4.1, and modding it, makes it better than iOS. That's a whole new can of worms to open up.

S2 spoiler
Ford racing accessories rear lip
Cupra r front lip
SVT mirrors
I think it has SVT suspension
It also has a bigger front sway bar.
