>> No.64776437

4.4 was never good, anything pre-5 is bad because of dalvik and 5 is bad because of memory leaks. So the oldest good version is 6. 7 doesn't have significant improvements but 8 currently the best version. It has tons of great improvements, you have to be completely retarded to think otherwise.

I'm rolling with a Note 8 right now to try it out. It's nice but the lack or wait for updates is an issue. Hearing about how you may have to reset after a major update is ridiculous. With iOS you just update and move on. There are a LOT of advantages to using iOS that fandroids conviently ignore.

So how come the OS is better? It's basically a desktop level OS in your pocket at this point. It will even support x86 software on ARM soon (thanks Snapdragon and WINE project).

You're retarded. I avoided updates because I used to believe this, then went from 4.4 to 6.0 in a day. It performed better, didn't spontaneously lag anymore, and had a better battery life. Kill yourself you fucking iSheep.

Apple is a member of PRISM and according to themselves they have a backdoor access to user data and would have to give it to CIA/NSA/FBI if requested by a warrant. Same as Google and Microsoft. Android at least gives you a way to remove Google's proprietary parts.

Is this a joke? Read again, fucktard... Apple here is saying that giving USG metadata and customer info (part of the law of operating in the U.S.) does NOT require them to break encryption.

Pick one, and only one. Apple, which invented the modern smartphone OS (pirated by Google in every sense of the word) has growth still occurring.

Hilarious to see people cheering for Google, the anti-American brand for cheap Chinese fucks; which helped China END the uprising there and GAVE China the means to shut down its Democratic revolution; while pushing revolutions in other nations across the planet in the interest of World Banks.

Perhaps you should all remember who your enemy is. If I remember correctly, Apple never had a problem with Linux until Windows fags and Googlers showed up to shill for their masters.

Been using Android all my life, recently moved to iPhone since I got a ridiculously good deal (60$ for a iPhone 6 Plus 64gb.. can't say no). So far it's pretty decent other than the gay battery (I live in a very cold place). iMessages is gay so I don't really care about that. As another anon said, the fact that you can do your update without having to reset is pretty nice unlike Android. Also in general it seems more stable idk.
