    The funny thing is, people come here and see my post count, see my preference of the iPhone and automatically make these asinine assumptions...I'd never call the iPhone perfect for everyone, in fact, I usually argue against it whenever its said. Truth is, there are lots of things the iPhone doesn't do that would be cool, but it does enough right to make me prefer it vs. other devices (all of which I consider year in and year out when it comes time for me to try the next iteration of smart phone).

    In my previous smartphone life I was an ambassador at Android Central and have had A LOT of android devices but I thought it not a bad idea to start fresh when I changed all my devices over to iOS. It is indeed funny to see how people can be but such is the life in forums.

    @sean don't think iPhone is a perfect product. You are talking like its complete but it's not. It has so many negatives, unfortunately most of them are simple things which can be fixed/added very easily but apple do not care about. The reason for that is uses never ask for it. Most of users don't know these features even exists.

    Example: old iPhones didn't have Picture messages (MMS) feature. Funny thing is, at that time the whole world was enjoying mms in other phones.

    My final conclusion is apple can always introduce new features, if you don't like it, you can switch it off like we do now. Even now we switch off most of the cool features cos of iPhones poor battery life. That's another proof that apple does not give a **** about their customers . Internet is flooded with this topic. Apple could easily fix this by introducing a little larger battery.

    It all comes to the unanswerable question of why people feel the need to validate their self-worth in the context of what other people think-whether that's what other people think about their phone, their car, where (or if) they went to college, if their kid made varsity sports vs their kid trips over his own feet, etc.

    To me with the current crop of devices IOS and Android there are no limitations. I think a user can impose limitations on a certain device.

    But we are able to do things on mobile devices today that we could not do or think of doing 10 years ago.

    I can't think of one thing on my current device, a 5S and iOS 7 that makes me feel limited. I didn't feel limited on Android when I had it I just didn't like the Android experience. I prefer iOS devices. My main computing device has always been Apple so when Apple came out with a phone it fit right in.

    Of course there are things that Android does that iOS doesn't do but it doesn't matter to me.

    I think the limitations are dependent on what you are trying to do with your device. I feel the same as you. I don't feel limited because I'm not interested in really customizing my device anymore. I had my fun with it when I had Android devices, but it kind of lost its luster with me over time. After having so many smartphones over the years, I'm really only interested in the apps that I need and want and the ecosystem that best suits me.
