Re: Goodbye 5s
Thank you for your candid post. Whilst I understand your viewpoint, I wholeheartedly disagree with almost everything you have posted. Let me clarify a bit more in hte hopes it will help explain my point of view, which may not have been clear in my first post.

If I don't like an app, I will search out an alternative where possible (note: Where possible are the key words here). For reference, I don't like Chrome on iOS either.
On my iPhone, Trip Adviser is optional. On my Note, it wasn't. Why?
With regards to your comment about Knox, Sketchbook et al, why even bother putting a link there in the first place? I will admit to never having opened the apps, as I clearly said in the first line of my post, so not knowing the difference between an app and an install is entirely forgiveable in my opinion. Your comment of 'learn to distinguish' is unhelpful, insulting and colours your entire post.
You mention the following apps:
Apart form listing Airplay and Airdrop twice, which i've helpfully removed for you, I have highlighted in bold the apps on that list that I use. Of the others, I care not one jot about them.
iTune Store/iBook/Newsstand Photos
Because some of the apps aren't listed on your device, does not mean they are not baked into mine. We are in different countries with different devices and different carriers. Please don't generalise. My Note 3 was bought unlocked, by the way.
Also, I jailbroke my iPhone, which means I CAN use third party apps instead of the stock ones, like Messages and Safari, and even set up defaults so that links open in the browser of my choice instead of Safari too.
If you are going to respond, I would humbly ask that you read back everything you type first just to make sure you aren't coming across as antagonistic. I would much rather discuss this with someone who isn't trying to get a rise out of me. Thanks for your understanding.
