    What I don't understand is why this question needed to be asked in the first place. Seriously OP you could not have figured this one out on your own? ...
    You guys are veterans as someone said above, but from a new guys prospective I see things differently that's why the questions. I'll slowly learn what to post it not post, thanks for you opinion.

    Basically if you are interested in things other than Apple you should go somewhere else. Many people here speak Apple and only Apple.

    Honestly most people have the mindset that since they "love" something so much they hate whatever opposes it. Kind of like most Red Sox fans hate the Yankees. Most people on here especially the ones who have been on here a long time love everything Apple and hate Android. That's why you're going to get those types of comments when you asks questions about anything not Apple here.
    I love apple devices and the sole reason why I went android is because I couldn't stand. The 3.5 inch screen. Now with the iPhone 6 plus I thought about getting the 6 plus but while I think it's a great phone I don't feel the need to uproot myself again to get an iPhone. I love my note 4 but at the same time think the 6 plus is a fantastic phone.


    iPads I think are vastly superior devices for overall use imo. For media consumption I would say get a Samsung Galaxy tab S since the aspect ratio is better plus the screen is one of the best in a tablet right now imo

    So ? I have an iPad and an note 4 and since I have both it makes my opinions invalid ? As my above post says I think the iPhone 6 plus is an fantastic device..., just don't feel the need to uproot again for it

    You're one of the few android users that don't hate apple. I had a galaxy S4 for a while. While I thought it was a good phone, I honestly just prefer using IOS.

    I'm sorry. I didn't know the word "Many" meant everyone.

    Seriously though, you haven't seen people get upset when someone asks a reasonable question about Android/Google? I've seen it enough on this forum. It's like if they have the option for something Google they have to hate it as though they are forced to use it beyond their will. It's sad really. Their love for Apple has clouded their ability to see choice as something that benefits everyone.

    I think there is quite a few people who actually like android or picked android because it's cheaper or had the bigger display. Since the iPhone 6 plus launched I would think a lot of people wold switch over to apple because of it. I would love to but with the amount of paid apps on android makes me want to stay because then I would have to buy them all over again ( already am as it is with a few games lol )

    I don't think people need to "go elsewhere" simply for being interested in things other than apple. Likes and dislikes, opinions, thoughts, feeligs, etc., are what make communication and discussion (even arguments) interesting. I like many things, including apple and my iphone...which is why I am in these forums. In the past, I have used other devices with different operating systems, but I still was a part of these forums.

    If the only people who voiced their opinions and thoughts in these forums were 100% apple lovers only, it would be pretty boring and close minded.

    Ah never mind.

    People take things way to literal.

    It's a phone. If you don't like it then move on.

    If you come here bashing what "everyone" on here uses you're gonna get hammered.

    Yes everyone on here uses IOS. If you don't use apple products then you should leave.

    It's not so much the getting hammered if you bash iOS. That is to be expected. It's the hate that ensues whenever you try and discuss things outside of Apple that bothers me.

    That lasts not the majority. It's the one turd that jumps in and starts with the crap posts that gets everyone all wound up.

    I use all types of tech. I don't care what it is. If it works for what I need then I'll use it.

    But don't come in here and assume apple is for dummies and android is the best.

    And again. I have seen numerous good posts back and forth until the turd steps in.

    Another issue with the written word, such as in these forums, is that emotion can not always be shown. For example, I could say something jokingly, and meant to be taken lightly, but depending on how I type it...it could come across to others as being mean or negative.

    Sometimes people read things the wrong way, and instead of trying to understand it they immediately go on the attack.
    Very true, easy to get caught up in the moment and respond before thinking about what the poster was trying to say.

    Well...technically...this is the General Apple News & Discussion area of the forum. There is an "other OS" thread that includes Windows, Android, etc. In addition there are other non-Apple topic threads.

    The same thing happens when someone posts something about Apple in the general Android discussion thread over at Android Central.

    Also be sure to use lots of smiley faces for jokes where needed.

    Not necessarily. I enjoy 'technology'. Period. Having said that, if I purchase a product, I am going to put everything into learning it and making it work best for me. I did that with EVERY smartphone, dumb phone, PIM, computer, etcetera, I've ever owned. As of late, my brand of choice is Apple, specifically in regard to the iPhone and the MacBook. I do NOT hate Android or any other brand. I've used them all at some point in time, and many others here feel the same way.

    I understand to a degree, but "c'mon man", common sense should dictate some of the things you should and should not post in any brand-specific forum. When I get my new iPhone, I'm not going to go over to Android Central, Crackberry or to Windows Central and post how great I think it is and tell all of those people that they should get one, too. That's like going into a neighbor's house and telling them how your house looks so much better, and then act surprised when the occupants begin threatening to cause you great bodily harm.

    It is call iMore, so one might get the impression it meant iStuff and more. My mother always told me I had no common sense, but thanks for the advice. Not trying to be a smart *** either.

    I see where you are coming from. I posted an opinion post about my hands on with the iPhone 6, at first there was civil discussion, and then people immediately started calling me a troll for speaking an opinion when it said opinion in the dang title.

    Before that I suggested maybe Apple could expand into the low end, and I was immediately jumped on as if it was the worst idea ever. It was just a random thought. Not to be taken as if I was threatening something drastic.

    Not only that opinions that are not the norm are shot down quickly by a lot of people here. I am not speaking to condemn the community as I do like the community for its NFL talk and I participate on the politics section. But I think people do tend to speak down to others here and don't realize it. That makes people like myself not want to participate regularly in the non off topic areas.

    I'm part of that few too. My daily regimen includes the use of a Note 3. When I first saw the iPhone 5c, I'd been one of those crazy anti-Apple folks.

    I remember thinking "What am I doing being interested in this blue crapple?". However, I found that I had some sort of an epiphany. So I bought it, loved it, and decided I'd just stop being a fangirl.

    Now I just buy what looks good, what works, and what will do what I'd like. It's nice not feeling any animosity towards a brand. It's freeing the feeling of just enjoying all there is out there for me.

    When I shop for electronics, I'm always so amazed at just how much I missed when I didn't explore.
