Was reading afar until I saw this comment... anyone who continues to bring up the fragmentation comment today is an absolute idiot as they have no idea what they are talking about. They should pull their heads out of the sand/apple sauce as this hasn't been the case for a long time.

 

I believe the laughable situation is the druthers that Iphone brings with their closed loop Nazi like attitude of an app store. Too late too little, most of smartened up and left due to many reasons like 2 yr old tech and features being groundbreaking.

I'm no developer, but lower fragmention sounds like a boon to me. Having to support older hardware in addition to outdated software sounds like a daunting task, especially as new API's and features come along, but I could be wrong. Never mind potential security issues that may arise with 2+ year old software, you're essentially a sitting duck for some sort of problem/attack, does Google issue patches for older versions of Android?

 

Personally, when I had an Android phone, I found being trapped on 1.5/1.6, while 2.0 was available for quite some time, to be pretty annoying. But then again, Android was quite terrible/clunky back then. I'd be lying if I said I didn't like having the ability to update my device to the newest version of the OS the minute it's released.

Can we please not make this a bash Apple thread? I'm begging now so that a war doesn't start. Apple has their strengths and Android does too. So lets not pass the blame game because some of us hate Apple and some hate Android.

Was pleasantly surprised to see they are correctly identifying the network type now. Not even my Note II does that without a hack.

Glad to see that you admit you're a troll. I never go into the Android sub forums here. Why can't you just ignore this forum?

Sorry no fox spin zone here. Never said that. Just a truth speaker.

 

I am not forum-racist to any forum, brand, market, thread, etc.

I need to award style points for dropping the "y'all" in there. :)

The multitasking enhancements are smart... You have to register for what you want (periodic background time to download updates vs wake the app up when a push notification is received), but the OS waits for good signal strength or when the user wakes the device to do something else, then it takes advantage of the really strong signal or the user waking the device to also do the background updates. The OS also learns which apps you use frequently and gives them priority, so an app you haven't used in six months won't ever have its background updates scheduled (presumably).

That's rather nice, much better than what Android does. Wakelocks (especially system ones, but things like Facebook and Google Maps and Google+ do plenty on their own) are murderous to Android battery life. I should probably amend that to "being awake" is murderous to battery life on "embedded ARM systems", but eh.

 

Also, what in the world happened in here while I was gone? Are we still arguing who copied who? I'm a power user who likes to do things like chroot in to (full) Linux and compile code when I'm away from my home desktop, and I love Android's ROM development community, so the iPhone isn't for me. I still recommend them to most customers who ask. Apple makes a quality product. Their OS is very intuitive. Apple's customer service is stellar. They also do some of the best phone refurbishing/reconditioning I've seen. And Applecare covers things above and beyond other warranties, even if you didn't purchase it. No Android-producing company can claim all that. So, my point is - quit bashin' things you don't like. Celebrate the things that you do.

I bet the new signal strength dots are actually quantum dots.

What are quantum dots? (Please put it in a nutshell. My brain hurts too much to read a Wikipedia page or something just as large.) Thanks.

Yes. Pointing out facts makes you a troll. Making a statement like that makes you a fanboy.

 

I can bash any platform just as much as apple, but if it's not what YOU want, we are trolls.

 

iOS7 is case positive proof that Apple is not the company it was when Steve Jobs was around. Deal with it. He's not coming back.

does this really have to turn into an IOS vs Android??  I ve had both and just recently switched to Iphone5, at this point in the game is there really a whole lot different or new that is gonna come out and shock us.  Both platforms are becoming more similar by the update IMO.  On an opinion note, one little thing that bugs me.. the dots for signal strength,,,weird gonna take some getting used to LOL

Definitely not, but unfortunately they were ringing the bell calling in the crews.  I was just going to read the new features but....

Huh? Who's copying who now?

 

Control Center: Copy of Android's quicksettings

Notification Center: looking rather Jelly-bean like with the expanded notifications

Multitasking: MUCH more Android-like with full-screen previews

iTunes Radio: right on the heels of Google Play Music All Access...

Airdrop: Galaxy S3's Allshare

 

It definitely looks like a nice update, with a very sleek interface - but I don't think Android is going to be copying much from it. Frankly, I figured we could leave the OS fights out of this, but...

My thoughts exactly, people venerate Apple way too much to realize that Apple does take features from competitors. It's not a bad thing, it's good. Competition leads to innovation, and in the end it's all the better for the consumer. I like the new iOS7, I have a few qualms about it, but over all I think it's finally up to par with Android and it's functionality.

Yeah, those dots are really odd, but I use signal numbers from the Field Test bug (Force Quit Field Test app by holding power until 'Slide to Power Off' shows up, then hold down the 'Home' button until you return to the main screen.)

Looking at the features Apple has shown off so far, the biggest thing I'm looking forward to is Control Center so I can quickly turn on/off Bluetooth for connecting to a speaker in my car, and on/off airplane mode when looking for new LTE sites.

 

I'm a little nervous about the typography and hope that the fonts aren't too thin to read quickly.

 

The signal dots are different but I'll get used to it. I don't normally look at the signal much unless I notice that call reception is poor.

 

I'm glad they lost the skeumorphism or whatever it was called. Wasted too much space in Calender.

 

I like the increased gestures to make one-handed operation easier.

 

Multitasking improvements look nice.

 

AirDrop I'll definitely be using as my family have iPhones as well, so I can share photos more easily than via email or Drop Box.

 

I suggest checking out the keynote around the 1:30 mark to get a good overview of things.

I like it! Looks sleek! The new Siri voices and functions should be cool, as I use her alot, especially when traveling. It's easier than opening the browser and searching for places that way. I also like the control center. I will say it reminds me of my droid 3 in a way.....but that's cool! Best of both worlds! Thumbs up from me so far!

      iPhone XS and XS Max are Apple's newest flagship phones, and the successors to Apple's 2017 iPhone X. They have the new A12 Bionic chip, improved cameras and faster FaceID, and come in a beautiful Gold Stainless Steel finish in addition to the Silver & Space Gray options. They are available in the same 5.8" Super Retina display as with the X, and the bigger 6.5" Super Retina. They are available in 64GB, 256GB, and 512GB configurations.
      Apple added Dual SIM technology to the 2018 iPhone's, with one physical SIM, and one eSIM. (eSIM feature not currently supported by Sprint, but is said to be coming later). These phones also feature IP68 water-resistance (iPhone X was IP67) which gives you protection in water for up to 30 minutes in up to 2m of water.

      Sprint 4G Rollout Updates
      Thursday, January 26, 2012 - 12:01 AM MST
       
      Many of us enjoy the freedom that rooting or jailbreaking our phones gives. Adding custom ROMs, removing “bloatware” or Carrier IQ, and adding additional controls are just the start. We knowingly take the risk that that we may turn our phone into a brick, and our warranty will likely not cover repair or replacement. But will we knowingly commit a criminal act to unlock our phones?
      Apple has claimed that jailbreaking the iPhone was in conflict with copyright laws. Given the amount of time they spent locking down iOS, it’s no surprise they oppose it. In July 2010, the U.S. Copyright Office eventually decided that jailbreaking and rooting was not a violation of the Digital Millenium Copyright Act (DMCA), as long as it was not done with the intent of circumventing copyright. However, this decision was not permanent. If it is allowed to expire next month, jailbreaking and rooting could be considered breach of the DMCA.
      Development websites like XDA started out with the public perception that they were underground gatherings of hackers and pirates. Since the U.S. Copyright Office published the finding that jailbreaking and rooting was not illegal, those development websites have become widely popular and have largely changed the public's perception. Even Steve Kondik, aka “Cyanogen”, creator of the widely popular Android ROM CyanogenMod was hired by Samsung.
      Due to the liberties that millions of us enjoy about to be removed due to the sunseting DCMA, the Electronic Frontier Foundation has begun a campaign to keep our phones free. They are undertaking a campaign to convince the U.S. Copyright Office that we should have the right to unlock not only our smartphones, but our tablets and video game consoles. They have a petition that they will send to the U.S. Copyright Office, and they are asking for Concrete examples of legal uses of jailbreaking that “will help show the Copyright Office why they should renew and expand the exemptions for jailbreaking.”

      Sprint 4G Rollout Updates

      The iPhone is something many people see as a status symbol. Many who have never owned one, long for their upgrade date so they can go out and buy the "exclusive" iPhone that they have been denied access to for years. Even some who had the iPhone, and then switched carriers, long to repurchase another. Yes, the iPhone is a well made smartphone with access to a loaded app store, and has many desirable features. But is it really better than Windows Phone, Blackberry or Android models?
      When Apple entered into a contract with AT&T, they remanufactured the RAZR craze and how the artificial scarcity of the device created such huge demand. The RAZR was a good device, and you may argue it was well ahead of other phones at the time of its release, but the other manufacturers caught up quickly. Apple used a similar strategy and it has paid off immensely. The iPhone is now available on the top 3 carriers in the U.S., but is still seen as a status symbol in many circles. As if only a few people have access to it. One could make a strong argument that the Samsung Galaxy SII is a superior smartphone, but still many customers line up to get the iPhone instead, because their inner hoarder says they NEED it, and the products perceived coolness and limited availability only add to the whole experience.
      The concept of artificial scarcity is simple. You take a product that is plentifully available to manufacture in mass, but limit distribution to a limited time, limited area, or in the case of the iPhone, limited retail outlets.
      The strategy has worked perfect for Disney. Why let your movies make the gradual descent to the $3.99 Wal-Mart bargain bin? Just keep "taking them out of the vault" and offering them at full price for a few months every couple years and people pull their credit cards out to pay $17.99 for an 85 year old movie and thank Disney for "allowing" them the opportunity to purchase Snow White. Oh, and you get to be a part of a limited privileged club.
      Another notable example is McDonald's McRib. If it was on the menu full time, many people either wouldn't bother going to McDonalds or would order something else, but artificial scarcity commands us to rush in to McDonalds and get several McRibs at a time because we won't have another chance at it for another year. What do we end up with, besides a belly ache and a reason why we don't normally eat at McDonalds?
      We should be immune to this form of advertising by now, as we are constantly inundated with limited time availability and special edition products all around us. However it is still alive and well here on Planet Earth, because it still works. Big time.
      Can Apple keep the air of exclusivity over its iPhone as it continues to broaden its distribution? Or will smartphone buyers move on to other devices? Only time will tell. But many doubt that Apple will play its hand as well in an era post Steve Jobs.
