That is the same as going to App Store, hitting update all, enter password. Done.

It's a safety measure. I want to enter my password to download purchased or new purchased content. I would not want a friend or a family friend's kid playing with my phone or ipad or other device to charge things up without my permissions.

Give ICS a look, it's decent, way better than older versions in terms of smoothness, but still not quite iOS-like in fluidity, etc.
Ask Elliott about it...he just got a SIII in exchange for his 4S. He likes them both. You'd have to remove all the pos software/refresh the whole phone to remove it after you buy it so it runs much much faster.
That is why in ALL benchmarks, the international versions of all android phones are faster - no bs carrier and manufacturer bloatware.

iTunes point somewhat valid.
Annoying you have NO choice but to use it. But it's very good software overall. Let me know when your android crashes one day and you're stuck doing everything manually. iTunes is a one-stop-shop to get everything back exactly how it was. No bricking, no problems, etc.

The iTunes music argument is invalid. Dump music on itunes, sync. Done.
Take music off easily, delete or add via just the device, wirelessly sync content. You CAN copy and send to anyone you wany any music you buy on iTunes. I don't why why people say you can't -> right click the song, hit "show in explorer" or "show in finder" and boom, all the songs in itunes for your copying pleasure.



In the end, I don't care what anyone buys. I just like to argue with about phones and other things because I feel I know a good amount of both ecosystems and the platforms as a whole and tech in general.
I'm happy with my iPhones, my PC desktop, and my MacBook Pro. I wouldn't give up my pc and I wouldn't give up my MBP, either. I like them both.

How are you saying the internals don't matter? So if I put a shitty computer next to a super good one, in the same PC case, you wouldn't care what was inside it cause they both look identical? This is what I'm getting at.

Never fear.

I plan to try out several different phones during the 2 week trail period. I will probably do the LG Viprus. then the iPhone then either the galaxy s3 or the evo 4g lte before making a final decision.


however knowing what I've learned about electronics in the last 2 years. I've come to the realization that Apple far out optimizes their software better than any other company can.

and its not anybodys fault. phone comparo's are always iPhone vs Android.

aka Apple vs the World. all the other phones combined competing against Apple who is the benchmark whether we all want to admit it or not. Apple just has the capital/tech to be able to keep pace with the rest of the world on their own.

plus specs dont do anything for me. personal example below.

we started developing a camera last year. originally started with a 8mp camera. our competitors boast a 12mp camera.

we have since "downgraded" to a 3mp camera and it still blows the 12mp competitors camera away.

you wouldn't believe the images we get from the camera. our customers are shocked that its a 3mp camera.

no. I'm saying that at this point the phones that have "shitty" internals are still triple what my Evo has. which does everything I need except have decent battery life.

You completely missed the entire thing.

I don't want to argue anymore over this crap.
Re-read my post. It makes perfect sense.

No one said shitty vs. good. It's good vs. good. Your entire argument is MORE MP = better. FALSE in every way. Use that argument for all your argument. More is not better in many, if not most cases. Sheesh. lol.

600whp Focus is no good if you cannot hook. Hence you lose to a 350whp Focus. Does that make sense? That is what I am getting at. USABLE power, usable technology, usable memory/processor power, etc.

I guarantee you the Maxx or S3 battery will outlast the iphone5

Maxx has a 3300 mah battery. Apple hasn't said how big theirs is, but I doubt it'll be even close
