[COLOR="Red"]Apple User - But ours actually works and cant be faked by photos

Apple user: Wireless charging
Android User: We`ve had that for 2 years anything else new?
Apple User - Yeah bit behind, but not that important

Apple user: It`s water resisitant
Android User: We`ve had that for the last 3 years anything else new?
Apple User - We've been resistant for 3 years, but now we're water PROOF

Apple user:It`s the best display ever
Android User: The screen is supplied by Samsung, it is android technology!
Apple User - Yep, manufactured by Samsung and tuned by Apple. Universal rave reviews that it is the best phone screen ever. Android is an operating system, not screen firmware.

Apple User: So why am I paying all this money
Android user: To fund Apples drive to catch up with Android technology!
Apple User - Because I value the fact that the hardware and software comes from one source and actually works.

Pointless argument, Samsung users are just not as clever. They don't get it.

I believe there are more Samsung phones in use than Apple, so even the sheep argument doesn't hold true.

You're right and by a long way. It's more like boycotting burger king by eating at McDonald's.

Im going to swing by that place tomorrow and find out what he has and get his number as well
Ive got a Nokia 6310 that I need repaired, that thing lasted me for ages and ages

I've also noticed these arguments are generally started by Samsung folk wanting to tell Apple folk that their shit is better. It's only them that cares.

I actually prefer Samsung, and I am not technically qualified to argue on those grounds, I just like the way it operates and it suits me a lot better. Not trying to tell someone that my shit is better than theirs.

Also amuses me when to people on the same side of an argument address each other in a way that they are trying to justify what they have done/said

Well please ask if they do the CMD one. Thing there maybe several 'Z' versions so the later the better.

Dunno if they had that feature but the wheel on the side was a true design marvel. You could operate the whole phone with it one handed. Awesome. If its reasonable I'll get one.

You are going to work that new phrase to death Millhouse.

How about iphone is like eating at McDonald's but paying Michelin 3 star prices?

See, I switched it up, it's practically a new phrase.

I'd say the argument between the manufactures lays somewhere between Ali vs Mohammed and the broscience debate of Reps vs. Weight.
