Regarding Android battery life, another reason for poor performance on some phones is the 4G LTE capability. I bought the extended battery for my 4G LTE Rezound and can get through a day with no problem and no recharging. Newer phones with newer chipsets should be more efficient, and if the iPhone gets LTE this fall it should benefit from the advances in technology.

Thing is there are what I'll refer to as ifundamentalist as well. Like Alli said its more about people than devices. I always thought iphone users were snobs who thought there devices were the cats meow. I'm now an iphone owner as well as... well read my signature. Guess that makes me a snobby militant! B-)

Some good arguments errr discussions here. There's a particular Apple or Mac forum that might rhyme with "RacTumors" that i used to visit a lot but it seemed to me that it went off the deep end with crazy non stop trash talking. I dunno if its actually that way now since i've not been back there for quite some time. I just wish i could enjoy good tech talk about whatever my platform of choice forums I'm on without all the nonsense.

I was anti-Apple for a long time. My whole life, really. I was really just a hater. I refused to pick up an iPod when they came out and I just felt like they were too "controlling" of their products and how they are used. I have always been a techie but I started off with PALM, then got a Zune, couple of Windows Mobile phones, had a Palm PRE (which, honestly, I freaking love. To this day I feel WebOS can be argued as the best mobile os and the precentral community made it so much better). My brother-in-law had been trying to get me on the Apple train for years, and like any other Apple hater I refused. At one point my brother even got an iphone (1st Gen) and within 6 months was back on Windows Mobile. We used to use forums to UNLEASH our phones and Apple felt to closed. WELL, one day my aunt gave me an iPhone touch (1st Gen), it was free and I had been wanting to play around with iOS. GAME OVER. Less than two months later I had an iPhone and in less than a year, I am a full convert. iPhone, iPad, Macbook and two Apple TVs, I'll never go back. EVER. I love how streamlined my entertainment world at home is now and even though it could be argued that you can do that with any operating system, it takes too much work for me. Downloading software or apps that can co-exist across platforms. I love my setup now, wont change it for nothing, I backed the wrong ponies for too long.

Whenever I view a tech video, I usually see these top rated comments hurling insults on Apple. I think most of us Apple users just don't really bother replying these comments, since we just love our iProducts and couldn't care less on what others are saying. Its usage and our preference that matters.

I switch platforms often, I too have noticed the same passion from users of platforms other than those represented in a particular forum. Coming from experience there are the same trolls everywhere. I am however happy that iOS, Android, Blackberry, and windows phone exist as it continues to push innovation.

I made a comment on both a CNET thread on Google+ and over at TechCrunch about the Nexus 7 and a Samsung Galaxy S3. Neither comment was rude, crude, deragatory, or hostile. It was more of an inquisitive post. I was called *******, asshat, and every other variation of the colorful metaphor thereof.
Android fanboys and their rude, crude, and plain crass comments are a reason that the internet is going to ****. Every single solitary tech forum, thread, page, post, or anything dealing with an Apple product is infested with the vermin. They are a disease of the internet.
If you like both, okay. If you don't like one or the other, okay. But keep the comments like *******, asshat, whatever to yourself. If it's an Apple related post or thread or webpage, just **** off.

I like android when I am not in a hurry to do something or I want to nerd out on Linux. When it comes to everyday things I use the iPhone because it works. Don't get me wrong I dislike apple but you can't argue that you can be more efficient on iPhone then you can on android. At one point in time you will get tired of flashing and fixing things to make your phone work.

So, let the ideologically challenged Android apologists flame away.
In the end it means more money for pro-Apple sites.
(And yes, I'm guilty of more than my share of troll-baiting. Gotten pretty good at it. SO MUCH FUN!)
