    I've had many androids (note 2, gs3, gs4, etc.) and while they are good phones, i came to the iphone 5 for one big reason... Stability. The 5 isnt the fastest phone or greatest out there but it works as it should. Thats all i ask for...

    Like I said Apple makes a good product. So does Samsung and other android phone makers.

    Maybe this OP was stiring the pot some. But it doesnt mean he is wrong. I understand this is an
    iphone site and iPhone users will flock to defend their purchase. Just as android users will defend theirs.

    But the truth is that I never had any issues with my Note 2 and never had issues with my iPhone 5.
    I have spent a while on XDA and never really saw much iBashing in the forums I frequented. Other
    than the ocassional "apple sucks, android is better" The difference I have noticed is that Android users
    typically will just ignore Apple fans, while if you question Apple here, its game on.

    Im just speaking from my experience. Maybe I did exaggerate about the "legendary status", but it not that far off base.
    Speaking from my experiences. I enjoy using my iPhone and will continue to use it. If I "insulted" anyone here I apologize.
    And I'd retort that Apple product fans do the same exact thing. The bottom line is, there are fanatic owners in any range of ANY product...from cantaloupes to carousels, and let's get back to the fact that not one person on this website said anything about iPhone being either the end all be all platform or perfect at all. People like what they like, and this IS an iPhone based forum and community, so to many of us, the iPhone IS the best product out there, because that is our choice, it works best for us...we're going to like it and defend it regardless of how much someone tells us otherwise, just like they would on any other platform's community (this one does it a lot less aggressively too).

    As far as OP stirring the pot, there's no maybe, that was the full on intention of the thread...nothing more, nothing less. And there is no "wrong" in this discussion, people have a preference, and what you prefer may not match mine...it doesn't make either of them right or wrong, it just makes them different. Telling someone they are inaccurate for saying that the iPhone is the best phone in the world for them is just asinine.

    I do have to say after reading this response it is one of the best with the most poster information that this poster (Sean) feels and he is right the nobody on this website said iPhone is the best because as Sean stated...They can't. 100 people are going to have 100 opinions not making anything wrong.

    In as much as why this thread was started to me makes no difference, It got talk and conversation with varying opinions which there is nothing wrong with. Is is the crux of any thread and why this forum exists. The last line Sean posted sums it up and for once I can truly say thank you for the retort and I can honestly say not only do I agree with your statement but thank you for bring it out in the way you did. Good honest opinion Sean!!

    I think Apple had a bigger gap over Samsungs and others, but that gap is closing fast.

    Samsung Galaxy 4 the first Samsung phone I liked. They are making bigger changes from older versions. Apple is good, but not as big changes to stay ahead.

    Not yet but Sean one thing about me.... If I like something and it has merit and no redundancy - LOL I will say so and your points were concise and ON point. Let's just say that we made a break through which I hope will last. It is far better to post something you believe in than not and I believed in your post from start to finish...No fluff, Just pure solid info and i agreed with it.

    To me your comments always have merit and make sense but most of them I agree but if i don't for harmony i will say nothing or sometimes say what I feel wrong or right.....

    PS we are good

    This is why people have a bad taste in their mouth about Apple products. The arrogance of iFans is legendary.

    Come on guys is a freakin phone that works well, just like my note 2
    Arrogance comes more from Androiders who think they're the world's best coders because
    they know how to load a ROM on their phone and overclock their processor which changes
    nothing about the day-to-day performance of the device itself. You've customized your phone
    to run a ROM that doesn't include some of the features the manufacturer intended to have
    on there. Congratulations.

    Too many swings in this thread. From the wanna be troll, to the premature escalating, to group hugs.

    I have to say I'm disappointed. I blame the troll though. I thought we had a good pinch hitter (or maybe runner) though but that kinda tanked quick.

    I beg to differ. There was no "hostility" displayed in this thread and it did not turn ugly, in my opinion. People stated some agreeing & disagreeing opinions as well as debate the intent of the OP's thread and nothing more. A statement and a retort does not make a conversation in and of itself hostile or ugly.

    I've been following this thread and agree with you here D that there hasn't been any hostility displayed in this thread. Seems like the discussion is going well thus far....

    I never said I was a "android coder" because I could flash ROMs. That was all you. The Roms i did flash lost no functionality except maybe some fluff which I didnt need.
    IF I needed these features I wouldnt have flashed it I never over clocked my phone but some people do, I never felt the need. If iOS users had the ability some would also.
    Dont kid yourself...

    This persons answer just helps me make my point. I never said android was better, but I guess you cant wait to say iOS is better.

    Agreed and as I posted to Sean agreeing with a very good retort to EarleD that he made, I was completely impressed with what Sean had to say to throw in my 2 cents about what he thought, where this thread was going and what has become of it, I see nothing wrong with people having differing points of views or why even have the forum to start with. We at Mobile Nations and I say MN and not iMore is because it is the company that pushes conversation across ALL of out forums, Not just one. A thread author is entitled to his or her opinion and where the posts go from there is up to each individual to keep it civil.

    When it becomes out of hand the Mods know what to do to get it swinging back the way it should and not cut off conversation because one or two think is is trooling.

    In the past Sean and I have not always agreed but never once - well once...LOL I might have called him out but he knows what he likes and thinks and for the most part has merit. Let he thread flow and let people offer their opinions without ridicule and if it gets out of hand it will be handled in a a proper manner. This is a valid thread of conversation that I appreciate being a part of.

    I have to totally disagree and think this thread is going as expected. The way i have always looked at a thread is that if it bothers an individual that much, the best thing to do instead of stirring the pot is to just drop off of it, let it go and don't participate in it. That way there is nothing to disagree with taking the chance of causing further problems.
