    No offense taken. However, if your wife really said "no brains required" as a reason for using it then I feel sorry for her as it sounds to me like she doesn't think ver highly of herself.... Again, no offense taken!
    She really didn't use the right wording. But what I got out of that is that it's just simple to use
    right out of the box. As it should and intended to be. It's always my rebuttal whenever some-
    one refers to the iPhone as a toy and being "too simple." Duh. It's supposed to be, ain't it?

    Is there ownership that goes with a post count, no just quite a few act like it. Feel better with your noob bomb??

    Be polite. We ask that you keep your language clean and polite.

    Be understanding and patient. You may be a power user or developer, but the person you’re talking to on the other end may be a complete newbie. Be patient, and provide all details possible if you’re posting about a problem (descriptive thread title always helps).

    Be a pro. Don’t get into arguments over dumb things. If someone responds in a poor or rude fashion, ignore it. If you notice a pattern of rude or poor behavior from a particular member, report them to our moderators. If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all. In a nutshell, ‘think before you post’.

    Be attentive and helpful. Answer questions in a timely manner when you can, and provide thoughts and suggestions that might lead to the solution of a members’ problem.

    Compliance with these basic guidelines should see you sailing in smooth waters for years to come at Mobile Nations. You’ll make friends, gain knowledge, and become wealthy beyond your wildest dreams (OK, maybe not that last point).

    OK so let us be honest here talking about the greatest thing ever is never ending. If something is the greatest thing ever there will be nothing better and that just isn't true devices get better so fast it makes you dizzy. So there will always be an iPhone better than an Android that is better than an iPhone that is better than an Android that is better than an iPhone... you see my point. It's just like saving your money to buy the fastest computer, smartphone, etc. if you do that you will never buy anything because even ignoring other brands a single brand will always have ssomething better and faster. It's simple people buy what gives them the best user experience, ecosystem, worth for their money. Someone who buys an iPhone 4 is no worst than someone who buys an iPhone 5 as long as they enjoy the experience and it's use makes some part of their life better or more enjoyful. The same way someone who owns a Samsung Galaxy S4 is no better than somone who owns a Galaxy S3. If you're talking who has the best specs at the time then that is a different question and one that you don't need people in a forum to answer.

    I don't care about any one else's opinion differing than mine Irish but the intent of the OP was to start some trouble look he hasn't even posted in his own thread again. That's what I have a problem with not the device he chooses to use.

    I understand what you are saying. If people would stop replying (not directed at you) this thread will eventually stop coming up as a new post and fall to the bottom of the forum. I have no doubt the OP is having a good laugh with each reply, which is unfortunate.

    Thought and opinions, Dont get mad. How many of you guys have tried other phones? I tried the Windows phone, 920 and its fast and very smooth. It beat the Galaxy s4, Note 2, And the Iphone 5. It never hurts to try unless your breaking the law. LOL. But seriously, Dont get mad because of someones opinions. Oh, And back a few years ago, The iphone was the greatest phone out there but now, other phones are better.

    I've tried several. Heck, I bought my first mobile phone in 1989 and I would have to really take some time to recall how many I've owned.
    I tried the Windows phone, 920 and its fast and very smooth.
    Yes, it is.
    It beat the Galaxy s4, Note 2, And the Iphone 5.
    In what way?
    It never hurts to try unless your breaking the law. LOL.
    No doubt...
    But seriously, Dont get mad because of someones opinions.
    I agree, but it's easier said than done. We're only human...

    Which phone is better for "me"? That's the real question.

    Windows has definitely improved, however, it still has a ways to go before it catches up to iOS and Android.

    Smoothness to the OS. Something that doesn't feel clunky. Overall reliability.
    Crisp sounding calls are more on the carrier of your choosing.

    The apps, speed, and features on iOS are fine with me. But one big feature I
    like is having a phone that gets software updates that isn't almost totally reliant
    on the carrier. I like that the software updates are universal for the device itself.

    Speaking of opinion there is no such thing as the best os for phones! Operating systems are developed by humans,We humans aren't perfect therefore whatever we make can't be perfect even though some may think so. just my opinion.

    The iPhone is not even close to the greatest phone out. When you look at the camera compared to other devices ti fails. The UI and the smoothness of it trumps other devices. The small screen also makes it feel and appear dated as well. It is up there but definitely not the greatest.
    The iPhone 5 screen isn't small. In my opinion, it's the perfect happy medium. The 3.5 inch screens on the older iPhones look dated, but 4 inches is great. I can't stand the 5 inch GS4 display, or the phablets

    I have to agree on screen size. The 4 inch screen is perfect size for a phone. Having a phone with a 5 inch screen is awkward to handle for me on a day to day basis, I ended up dropping it more times than I care to admit because it was too big to be "mobile".

    My honest take is I prefer stock android over anything else. I think it is very nice looking, fast and fluid, the best functioning for me.

    Then iOS for me, the all android skins after.

    I am getting the moto x next and hope it really delivers. My problem is I prefer the way 90% of how apps are designed and function on iOS so I always switch back and forth.

    I'm not saying android apps suck but I prefer them generally more on iOS.

    So I love both platforms.

    For you.

    We have a plethora of members who have tried several other phones comparable to the iPhone 5, and came back to the iPhone as the best choice for them...

    why i use iPhone is cuz Apple create a Device that you can use in a beautiful way, not like Samsung with my respect for all samsung users. but Apple devices are somehow ''better Locking'' and also higher in technology than samsung.
    also, the iPhone 5 is the best phone i ever used. it's completely great for me. and thats how a phone can be the best phone!. thanks and sorry for my english ( am german )

    It is the best for me because I'm so used to it! For the last 4 years, I've been using the same ring tone, message tone and alarm ring. Typing on the same keyboard. Yes I'm boring, but sometimes it is the small things that matter yes?

    True or not on your statement and asking a Mod to close this thread is not the way to go.
    There are 3 Mods watching over the thread and are quite capable in just their posts alone to swing it back to where it need to go. The purpose is communication and conversation as long as their is no profanity or calling people names or what Keith highlighted as to the rules and guidelines so even if the OP is not here others are and they are talking. If we took every single thread like this and closed it, There would be none or no topics to talk about.

    If everyone who has participated and still continue to participate in this thread do so as i see it now in a civil way there is no reason to close it. Keep it civil, speak your peace and more important than anything, Don't get caught up with someone you disagree with instead move by their statement, Make your own comment w/o specific names and that's it.
    Moderators know what and when to do with individuals as opposed to closing a thread with 5 going on 6 pages long.
