Apple is the opposite of innovation. They're too restrictive with what you can run on their software. They're literally slowing down the advance of technology, and the only idea they implemented that they didn't steal from a competitor was removing the headphone jack, which was a retarded thing to do.
@Ted Mosby is a jerk, your name says it all.
@Ted Mosby is a jerk, I think this is them trying to imitate when they removed the Optical Trays from their laptops. But unlike when that happened, 3.5mm jacks aren't as obsolete as CDs/DVDs are and you aren't as likely to misplace a USB DVD Drive thab you are two wireless earbuds. Not to mention aren't those new earbuds really expensive? That also wasn't a good move.
@Ted Mosby is a jerk, there are iPhone uses and there are others. It is safe to say you are others.
@Ted Mosby is a jerk, here's my problem with them, they aren't as innovative as they seem, but they market it as innovation. They're all sizzle and no steak. But since most people go with trends, the move towards wireless earbuds seems edgy and exciting and a new push towards the future. But in reality they care more about money than actual advancement.
@Ted Mosby is a jerk, well the force droids have been out for a few months now and the iPhone 7 is just coming out sooo. I'd say copycats there.
@DividedAlliance, I'm also kinda against the extra em waves all around. I know it's unavoidable unless you're off the grid in a far flung valley but every bit counts.
@mas2de, one of my favorite apple bashing pictures of all time compares the original iPad to some tablet that had been out for a few years at the point of release. The older device had better specs and was immensely cheaper at that point, but no one ever heard of it. I wish I saved it, I realize this isn't very specific.
@DividedAlliance, nothing wrong with not following trends, but I just want to say some people actually like the iPhone. For the most part it's all just preference
@Chirplez, eh, yes and no.
I will concede that there is nothing wrong with liking the iPhone. It's very user friendly, easy to grasp, looks sleek. It's not a terrible phone.
But saying that it's all preference is like saying an automatic Honda and a standard Lamborghini are all preference. Since I don't know how to drive standard, yeah I may take the honda, but that Lamborghini is a better all around vehicle.
@DividedAlliance, and then Apple tried to sue them for copyright infringement.
@mas2de, wait, really?
@DividedAlliance, hahaha. Idk. I was making a joke lol. Seems like something they'd try to pull lol. Along with paying nearly nothing to Ireland in taxes and seeing like $14.5B
@mas2de, I was about to freaking say lol if it was real this company would have to be funded by the dark lord himself.
@Mit, not necessarily. There are many people on both sides who think it's a dumb "innovation".
@Robertato, yes they are, but you can use any bluetooth headphones.
@Ted Mosby is a jerk, Moto Z Force did that a while ago
@DividedAlliance, only iPhone and android are like comparing Ferrari and Lamborghini. Not Honda and Lamborghini. Just because you don't like it doesn't make it a Honda. iPhones are considered one of the gold standard in the industry. And no amount of dislike from you or anybody else can change that. It is really just a personal preference.
@DividedAlliance, I think a Lamborghini is better only for status and speed. Apple is kinda like them in a way because it is probably the company with the highest percentage of blind loyalty and status purchase (for tech companies at least).
@CynicalSir, I buy what I want with my money and I buy many brands including Samsung. If somebody doesn't like a product, then don't buy it. It's really simple.
@Mit, yes. As long as you like it in some way, that's good. There are various reasons to buy things.
@Ted Mosby is a jerk, k
@Robertato, they took ethernet and DVD drives out of their desktops, then sell you an optical drive separate, what a bunch of Jerks
@Ted Mosby is a jerk, idk it might be the opposite. They're innovating so much that the rest of the word can't keep up. This is coming from an Android user just so ya know
@Ted Mosby is a jerk, a friend of mine explained it this way: the average consumer has no idea what he really wants. So apple gives a very structured device with info on how to operate it properly.
@Tipathearrow, What are you talking about? They aren't ahead of anyone, they finally just barely upped the storage on their phones to a viable amount.
And how is the rest of the world not keeping up when the rest of the world already did everything apple claims as new?
@Robertato, yes the airpods as they call them are about $160
@DividedAlliance, actually the lambo would only be better in performance, when it comes to comfort, ride, utility and reliability the Honda would win.
@Captain Mal, Yes, I believe it's like this:
If you don't try to push the power and productivity, like to change major settings in you're phone and all that then Android is the best.
But if you just want out of the box simple set up, then apple is probably a better solution.
@mas2de, *oweing* dang my autocorrect does not like this word.
@Ted Mosby is a jerk, HOW IS THIS NOT ONE OF THE TOP COMMENTS?!? PLEASE EXPLAIN!
@Ted Mosby is a jerk, at one point apple was innovative. Too bad they can't continue to be that way. Of ours Steve jobs' passing didn't help
@potahtoe, because the downvote system on this app is broken, and it takes like 15 up votes to balance only one downvote. So instead of 110 up votes - 10 downvotes equalling 100 upvotes, it equals more like 16 upvotes. The funnypics life is a rough one
To be fair to Apple, the optical zoom is a great idea
@Xanyok, but that has already been done...
@bigbrownbeaver, it was done by companies who tried to rush to being first after Apple's plans were leaked. The same thing happened with force touch
@AliG, lol thats funny because it happened with the s4 which was way before apple had plans for it
Honestly, all phones are plateauing. Can't really get any better at this point. Iris scanner or a pen, waterproofing, dual speakers, 1440p is all you need, two cameras is a cool idea, expandable MSD slot, and that's about it. Some of those things aren't even needs, just sales points.
@RonaldUlyssesSwanson, 4k camera boi
Also better VR for by 3d hentai
Ha, oh this joke again. Hey 2011, we're still telling the same damn jokes.
God I hope the apocalypse comes soon.
Jelly much, Samsung exploding phones?
@Filker, i got an lg g5 my phone is great and out performs anything that apple comes out with for the next 2 years atleast
But hey it makes for some hilarious memes! #thanksapple
I wonder why they still have a 1334-750 display. Other phones have had 1440 for years now and iPhone hasnt even moved up to 1080 (except for the plus variants)
Apple is evil.
@Swolekage, You're not wrong, but this is not new info
My first smart phone was an iphone, I loved it at first but then I saw all the cool things my family's droids could do and mine couldn't. As soon as I could I switched to droid and now the iphone just seems primitive now in comparison.
But how will they listen to that music later?
Is nobody going to bash the use of u2 for no apparent reason besides to throw another album down our throats?
I think the reaction was the opposite
